Another insider’s observation

09-Jun-09

Earlier today I posted on the fact that so many of our Baptist churches feel like defeat.  I wanted to add two postscripts to the history of how we got this way. Git them dogies movin’ One of the most damaging things ever to happen in the history of the American church was the revival […]

Y’all don’t want no worship, do you?

09-Jun-09

Having served in churches for a long time, I should know how to solve this problem, but I don’t.  Churches often suffer from a case of Carter’s malaise that leaves them feeling like losers, unhopeful and numb.  It’s hard to put into words, but they don’t seem to have any instinct to be winners.  My […]

The economics of ego

08-Jun-09

Please take a moment to read Doug Wilson’s superb explanation of what’s driving the nutcase economic policies of Our Time.  Check it out here: The Queen of Sheba and Ivan the Terrible

Way to go, BK!

07-Jun-09

I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling motivated to go out and buy a Whopper today.  It turns out that the parent company is Not Pleased with one of its franchise owners doing this.  Just my personal opinion, but I think it’s great.  A bit of free speech never hurt anybody, especially when it […]

Obolatry

06-Jun-09

Some things speak for themselves.  Follow this link to see Evan Thomas from Newsweek gushing in an unguarded moment of latria adoration for Mr. Obama.  No kidding, I’ve never seen anything like this directed toward a political figure in my lifetime, not in America, not anywhere.  The most significant quote from Thomas, “I mean in […]

Cussing preachers

06-Jun-09

Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ.  Ephesians 3:8 Last Sunday my family was treated to an episode, I don’t say “sermon,” from one of those newfangled cussing preachers.  He wasn’t dropping the f-bomb on […]

Electric shorts

05-Jun-09

Finally! It looks like some conservatives are starting to pay attention to the looming collision between America and the giant green asteroid.  Stay tuned to the American Energy Freedom Center.  Some of these guys are pretty well connected, so we can hope they will talk sense to power. Price of solar hot water in Hawaii […]

Chapter 11 wind power

04-Jun-09

Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rules on wind power are headed toward requiring state ratepayers to share the costs of providing energy to the big cities and coastal areas.  Industry sources foresee a major collision of interests when ratepayers in the so-called “wind rich” states get stuck with a bill for transmission lines heading for Boston, […]

On the murder of Dr. Tiller

02-Jun-09

Should our Lord not return soon, abortion will eventually come to an end one way or another.  It’s a monstrous, heinous thing and so it cannot stand.  It’s my hope that Christians persuading the public to accept what they already know — that abortions kill people — will eventually lead to this abominable practice coming […]

Why would you care to know his will?

02-Jun-09

We… do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.  Colossians 1:9-10 We […]

Prices starting to trickle in

01-Jun-09

The state of Kentucky has estimated the price of the Democrats’ $50 per ton carbon tax.  It’s expected to add as much as 65 percent to an electric bill, depending on the fuel mix in use at the time. Once the true costs of other green-gadget mandates are added, you could  see your power bill […]
