When I consider the Law of God, I am reminded of a scripture I memorised years ago: God is not man, that he should repent. If he said it, it stands. So I see the promises to Israel as great, glorious and still standing. If they can keep the covenant. If past performance predicts future … Continue reading Mosiac warnings and Semitophila. [Dt. 11]
Last night I posted a picture which summed up the entitled underclass that has replaced the starving and miserable. As one of the commentators noted, in the West we no longer have the poor, with parents eating every second or third day so their children do not starve, and children not developing their brains or … Continue reading Politically correct at any cost [Deut 10, Heb 3]
Utu is a very useful word: it is borrowed from Maori. It has two meanings: revenge and reciprocity. It is the law of the talon writ large: being generous to your friends but justification of destruction for enemies. And it is the main mode of the SJW, Islamic or secular. Roosh is wrong to call … Continue reading Slaves of ideology, less than human.
Down in Dunedin this has been a time of struggle and pleasures. Last night was one of the later evenings: the photog and I managed to find a very geeky bargain, and on the way back from doing that I saw the sunset. Out came the only cameras on us — the cellphones, and one … Continue reading Confidence not fear [Ps 42, Jn 3]
This is one of those difficult passages: It challenges us on ‘Once saved always saved’. Or does it. For the idea that all are saved within the church visible is a fundamental error. There are those in the church who want to form of religion but deny the power of it. And the sacraments of … Continue reading Avoid the progressive endgame [Hebrews 3]
Firstly, the graph, and what is wrong with it. If you look at this, you would consider the Muslims to be young and educated, similar to Jewish orthodox, and the reformed to be at about my age, and less educated. While tha mainstream church is older a much more educated than the assemblies of God, … Continue reading Graphism and administrivia.
One of the difficulties with dealing with the lectionary and blogging on it is that you get the parts of scripture that no one teaches and no one likes. So, as a way of introduction, a story. The Son was talking about the prosecutors in the US indicting various politicians. I commented that in the … Continue reading Your self esteem angers God [Deut 9: John 2]
We say that we are the children of God, that we were chosen from before time, that we are the elect, members of the church invisible, and that our hope relies on him. And that we have not forgotten Christ. But if we forget his commandments, if we have let our conscience be seared, forgotten … Continue reading Hate your lusts, its subversive.
I was having pizza last night with those who are accounted wise: there was a person talking about a book lauch with the author, and a discussion about protesting aluminium smelters, and if World War III is starting in Russia. Or if it is the Islamic state. And then someone said “but the intelligent question … Continue reading Wisdom will not suffice [I Cor 1:17-32]
Over the last three days I have blogged consistently from one book — Titus — and as a result (together with doing it fast, which means a half hour, not an hour) seen the traffic drop. This world is broken and the hypocrisy we are seeing is nauseating. But there is nothing new here. Nothing … Continue reading And not be unfruitful [Titus 3].
