Elton John's Life Story

Exodus 35:31: And he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship,

There are many scriptures that relate how God gives us all gifts and talents.

All of us have gifts that we can develop. ALL men include the natural man, sinners as even God loves all men.

God created all human beings with equal value: “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). By creating us in his image God established our value based upon our likeness to Him. Each human being has a natural equality with every other human being because all are created in God’s image.

But we are not all equal. We have in most cultures equal opportunity to work hard and achieve. Yet life is unfair in that we are sinners and the world is broken.

Many of us now having found faith in Christ came out of sin and brokenness. So we always should pray for those still living in sin.

Elton John has lived and continues to live as far as we know a life of sin, especially in God's eyes.

Today I applaud his God given gift of music! - Andy

Elton John's Tragic Real-Life Story

"Sir Elton John's music might not be the heaviest in the world, but don't take that to mean the man is a lightweight. As one of the most popular performers in the world, he has spent decades as the top dog, and that's not the kind of life you win in a lottery. It takes talent, dedication, hard work, and sacrifice. Perhaps more than anything, it takes the ability to cope with the many, many tragedies that will line the road to success.." from the article: Elton John's Tragic Real-Life Story

Elton John says ‘Farewell’ in First of Final NYC-Area Concerts

Elton John is saying his last goodbyes to the New York area this weekend with his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.

After beginning way back in September 2018, the swan-song trek — from the man who gave us “Your Song” with his first hit 52 years ago — pulled up his piano to MetLife Stadium on Saturday night for the first of his two final local shows.

And from the moment he launched the show by striking the unmistakable chords of his 1973 classic “Bennie and the Jets,” the 75-year-old music legend had the crowd rocking instead of fighting on this Saturday night.

Sparkling from the outset, the singer wore a glittery black-and-white ensemble that, despite the pink-and-green flowers adorning his tailcoat, was relatively understated by the young Elton’s standards. But John was still awfully robust of voice and vigorous of fingers for a man who is retiring from the road.." from the article: Elton John says ‘Farewell’ in first of final NYC-area concerts
