Cooking and Baking--fast, no measuring

In the last few days, I have discovered Breadpudding: add some whipping cream to it and--voila--you have something you should only make rarely...

In my experimenting it turns out: that's how I make it, see below.

One lasagna pan.
About 10 slices of bread (cut into pieces)
7 eggs
high fat yoghurt
maple flavor
almond flavor
homemade chai spice mix
Bourbon soaked raisins
brown sugar
cut apples with skin
(some butter)

bake for 40 min., convection oven, uncovered, 350 degrees F.

They recommend a Bourbon sauce, which I have not made yet.
It would consist of:  butter, brown sugar, a bit of cream and Bourbon.

I went out and bought the Bourbon, since we didn't have anything like it.  I thought it was rum, but it is whisky.  In any case, the local liquor store had it, at 32.00 dollar per medium size bottle.  Something really cheap would probably work just as well in baking.

I consider this a "no measurement needed recipe".  Mix it all together.  Whisk the eggs before adding, obviously.  I had forgotten to add butter, so I flaked some over top once it was already in the oven.

Those who believe men are saved without being immersed in water teach that men have their sins forgiven the very minute they believe in Jesus Christ. The writer of thirteen new testament books had his sins forgiven three days after he believed in Jesus. Yes, Saul (later to be called apostle Paul) believed in Jesus on the road to Damascus, however, his sins were forgiven three days later in Damascus when he was baptized in water.Acts (9:1-18, Acts 22:1-16)

1. Saul believes Jesus is Lord. Acts 9:4-5 ...Saul, Saul why are you persecuting Me?" 5 And he said, "Who are You, Lord?' And the Lord said, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads."(NKJV)

2. Saul repented. Acts 9:6 So he, trembling and astonished, said, "Lord, what do You want me to do?" And the Lord said to him, "Arise and go to the city, and you will be told what to do."(NKJV)

3. Saul is in Damascus three days later. Acts 9:8-9 ...and brought him to Damascus. 9 And he was three days without sight, neither ate nor drank.(NKJV)

4. Saul's sin were washed away three days after being confronted by Jesus on the road to Damascus. Acts 22:16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord."

Saul became a believer on the road to Damascus, however, his sins were not forgiven until he was baptized in water, calling on the name of the Lord.

Saul (the apostle Paul) was not saved the minute he believed on the road to Damascus. Saul was still in his sins until he was baptized three days later in Damascus, by Ananias.

Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

Jesus was correct was He spoke in Mark 16:16 and was correct when He spoke in Acts 9 and Acts 22.

Forgiveness follows belief and baptism. Men rejecting water baptism as being essential for salvation does not invalidate the words of Jesus Christ.

Rejection of Christ is the thing that condemns. Those, who do not want their sins forgiven, those who cast the offer away from them, will find that they are not forgiven. Christ died for all on the cross, and in that sense, salvation is already available for all, we do not jump through hoops or follow finicky rules.

In our baptisms, faith is strengthened as the water and the word together apply the miracle of redemption objectively, not subjectively, so that our faith will be strong and stays strong. In the Lord's Supper we receive nourishment in this salvation and faith, again and again, to stay the course until life's end. Thanks be to God for this inestimable gift. Alleluia and Amen.
