Intelligent design is harder than it looks

30-Aug-09

Several biotech firms have been trying to make a substitute for human blood to be used in emergencies when donated blood isn’t available.  The first generation of products proved so toxic that the Food and Drug Administration took them off the market.  It turns out that one of the functions of red blood cells is […]

Ways I have actually witnessed churches growing

30-Aug-09

1.  Put on a circus.  People will come for a show.  I will say this as tenderly as possible, but there are certain movements which have specialized in this method of church growth.  Outrageous antics and bizarre misbehavior together with improvised and freakish theology have drawn crowds in abundance.  Two obvious problems with this.  First, […]

Aha moment strikes Texas green gadgeteer A guy in Texas wanted to put solar gadgets on his house.  He initially gave up  on it because of the phenomenal expense.  “I had no idea solar [power] was so expensive,” he said.  A recent drop in the price of solar panels (thanks, China!) encouraged him to go […]

Plenty to pay the debt

29-Aug-09

One of Elisha’s ministers died leaving behind a widow, two sons, and a big debt.  According to the custom of the day, the man’s two sons were the collateral for the debt.  When he came to collect, the widow appealed to Elisha for relief.  Her only possession of any value was a pot of oil, […]

Adam to Christ: Reverse the curse

26-Aug-09

Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.  Romans […]

Let’s give EVERYBODY a trillion dollars!

25-Aug-09

Wealth is the result of people working with tools, machines, and ingenuity to convert resources into things useful to man.  Enter that into your head. The Wall Street Journal says today that the dollar is continuing to fall against other currencies.  Ponder this.  There is a decreasing number of Americans who work with tools, machines, […]

Okay. Time’s up. Show me.

24-Aug-09

The birth certificate follies have gone on long enough.  The administration’s and the VLWC’s endless ad hominem attacks on the “birthers” prove nothing.  Even if the birthers are all certifiable twitching, gibbering moonbats, that doesn’t mean squat about Mr. Obama’s origins.  If he has a legitimate “long form” birth certificate, he needs to produce it […]

If one died for all

23-Aug-09

For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: and that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.  2 Corinthians 5:14-15 The strength of this passage […]

Conspiracy against the poor – Second memo revealed

23-Aug-09

As Bro. Steve revealed yesterday, a series of memos has been discovered which outline the vast, left wing conspiracy to oppress the poor.  Today this site is able to disclose the full contents of the second of these memos. _______________________________________________ Fellow Oppressors, The second step in our plan to utterly destroy the detestable poor people […]

John Piper on Lutheran tornado

22-Aug-09

This is from John Piper’s blog. The Tornado, the Lutherans, and Homosexuality August 20, 2009  |  By: John Piper |  Category: Commentary I saw the fast-moving, misshapen, unusually-wide funnel over downtown Minneapolis from Seven Corners. I said to Kevin Dau, “That looks serious.” It was. Serious in more ways than one. A friend who drove […]

Lutherans dive into boiling lava stream. Splud, sizzle.

22-Aug-09

I mentioned a few days ago that the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America was contemplating suicide.  The New York Times now reports they’ve decided to go through with it.  They’ve apparently voted to support the ordination of ministers who practice sodomy. Note that we’re not talking about some guy who leads an upright life while […]

Conspiracy against the poor

22-Aug-09

Bro. Steve has scored his first media scoop, uncovering a series of secret memos from a cabal of conspirators whose aim is the destruction of America’s poor people.  Today I expose the first of these memoranda to public scrutiny. __________________________________________________________ January 20, 2009 Dear Fellow Oppressors: As you know, our campaign of subversion and destruction […]

PFC Reed… again

Selling freedom for a mess of ObamaCare®

20-Aug-09

The health care debate looms large in the thinking of freedom-loving Americans because it has two views of life on a collision course.  The one view sees freedom as a sacred birthright to be surrendered only at death.  The other view equates freedom with oppression and says it must be stopped at once. I find […]

The Kremlin on the Potomac

19-Aug-09

The premise behind most government spending is that anybody with a need has a right to his neighbor’s earnings.  I am ashamed of my countrymen for pampering envy, greed, class jealousy, laziness, and every covetous impulse in fallen human nature.  I am embarrased by people that have reorganized their government around the kleptic reflex as […]
