Start Your Day With Infinite Supply

This is from the Infinite Supply for June 27, 2006:

Religion seeks to reform a man; the Cross seeks to crucify him. Religion may fail to bring about the desired result, but the Cross never fails to achieve its end. Mankind will pursue morality, virtue, spirituality, even perform religious works and good deeds, in order to avoid death on a Cross. But there are no wounds, no scars, no evidence of having ever died and been made alive unto God. Either a man has never died, or he has died and been raised again. You cannot fake a resurrection.

BB&T Takes a Stand on Eminent Domain

In January BB&T announced that it would not lend money to private developers who want to build on land taken by force from citizens. I wrote the following letter to their corporate office:

I just read in the Washington Times that BB&T will not lend money to developers who plan to build commercial projects on land taken from private citizens through the power of eminent domain. I think this is great!!

I would love to support you by moving my account from Bank of America to BB&T, but need to when you will be opening a branch in Seminole County Florida.

I received an email back from them saying that they didn't have any branches in my area at the time, about two months later I saw a BB&T "coming soon" sign about four blocks down the street from my office.

Friday I will be attending their ribbon cutting ceremony to get more information about moving my accounts from Bank of America to BB&T.
