Needs to be repeated to blind western media

29-Sep-12

It is astonishing that so many in the mainstream media are self-censoring the growing wave of Islamist violence around the world. A sign similar to this one raised controversy last week when a “journalist” defaced the sign with spray paint in a demonstration against “hate.” One wonders where this journalist was when Islamic radicals were […]

When liberals take over the dictionary

15-Sep-12

I remember when preachers mocked the liberal establishment for calling drunkenness a disease.  First it got renamed alcoholism, which sounds more like a religious belief in alcohol.  Then alcoholism got classified as a sickness.  Now the sickness has morphed into a disability.  And being a disability, it’s now protected by the ADA, the Americans with […]

Snake handlers

14-Sep-12

Just a brief observation about one of the quirks of human nature.  People of all social strata seem drawn to do foolishly dangerous things.  The crackpot preacher handling rattlesnakes is easy to pick on.  What about the crackpot liberal that handles a gang of murderous outlaws such as the Muslim Brotherhood?  Both kinds of creatures […]

Election 2012, with the West hanging in the balanace, it’s still evil vs. stupid

09-Sep-12

Now that Mitt Romney has secured the GOP nomination, he’s backtracking on his promises to repeal ObamaCare.  As recently as June 28 of this year — before the convention — Romney was still vowing to “repeal and replace” ObamaCare.  Now that he’s the official nominee, he’s saying he will not repeal it, at least not […]

Blessed hope, and those who don’t have one

08-Sep-12

Titus 2:13 refers to the coming of Christ as our “blessed hope.” The context of the passage is that Christians are to lead godly lives while we’re looking for the return of Christ and our final deliverance from a fallen world. And oh, how the world is fallen. One of the hopeful ideas the New […]

Good old days

04-Sep-12

Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.  Ecclesiastes 7:11 An older Christian was describing his impoverished childhood and said, “If those were the good old days, I don’t want any more of them.”  He has a good life now, […]

When all means all

03-Sep-12

The doctrine of the limited atonement is not based on hermeneutics.  But since our Calvinist friends do believe the Bible, they must bump against hermeneutics at some point.  When they do, the collisions happen – – a lot – – and that requires some resourceful wresting of word meanings.  The most common claim in defense […]

The Party of 1812

03-Sep-12

Los Angeles mayor Villaraigosa says the Republicans are the Party of 1812, by which he intends to convey an insult.  The Republicans are retro and uncool, so nobody should vote for them. Wise men wish the GOP was the Party of 1812.  They are, instead, the Party of 1865, which was the year the expansion […]

God who remembers

02-Sep-12

For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. (Hebrews 6:10) Nothing you do for Christ’s sake is forgotten.  God remembers what we do for his sake. Some things are forgotten.  “Their sins […]
