Who is this Jamin guy anyway?
I am the husband of one and the father of nine. I was created to sing, to worship, to encourage, and to be steady. I am the Owner & Executive Director of Trinity Arts Center, a multi-disciplinary Arts Center in Eastern Tennessee, and the President of Trinity Arts Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization focused on funding arts education and performance. I've been involved with four music projects in my life -- Hot Pink Turtle, Spin Radio, Stand Like Stone, and of course, Jamin Rathbun.

What's an Intel chip doing in a Mac? A whole lot more than it's ever done in a PC. = )

I'm a huge Apple fan. I've probably bought 30 Macs over the last decade and personally owned (since 1993) a Performa, a lime iMac, a G3 PowerBook, a G4, and an iMac G5. I've loved them all. I've been forced, on occasion, to work in a Windows environment and it's always refreshing to get home and login to my good old Mac.

Now, I don't want to come across as some kind of Mac evengelist. Far be it from me to try and sway any of you Windows users from your world of crashes, freezes, and errors but -- if you haven't ever checked out a Mac -- hop on the website, find an Apple store near you and take one for a spin. I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised and (even more) I bet once you use it for a week, you'll never go back. = )

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

This is the standard that everybody knows but -- since I already knew it, I decided to memorize the next verse too. I'd never noticed it before...

John 3:17
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.

I'll repeat that... For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but to save it. What a great pre-cursor to all of the doctrine that you get into over the next few books. It starts here with the statement that He loves us and sent His Son to save us.

There are a lot of passages that come to mind like 2 Corinthians 13 and Psalms 139 that talk about His love for us and His knowledge of us and His power and authority. I know sometimes it's easy to get wrapped up in what we can do. We can tithe, and teach, and pray, and memorize, and study, and do good, and be good BUT it's all dead without Christ. Christ brings us to life. He saves us from death. He calls us. He annoints us. He gifts us. He chooses us. We only do what he calls us to do. (ref. 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 and Ephesians 2:8-10)

So... when someone (or something) has you confused about whether you are saved enough or good enough. Just remember that God loved you and sent his Son to save you. Just like the old hymn... "Just as I am without one plea but that Thy blood was shed for me."
