Always remember…

Memorial Day Commemoration 2008This video was originally made for Veterans Day, but eloquently captures the spirit of today, when we honor those fallen heroes whose blood has honored the blessings and solidified the foundations of liberty in the greatest country to ever rise from the dust of the earth.

In the words of Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address:

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

Legendary Breakdowns: Jesus vs. Satan in the desert

The Temptation of Christ, 1854

Matthew 4

Jesus Is Tested in the Wilderness

1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ 

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:

“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’ 

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ 

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’ 

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
