Tactics with the new Red Guard.

Again, tactics. Mundabor has noted that the Vatican is a scandal. Again. I hope brother, I am using the word correctly: a scandal is not a sin. The Democrats are not a scandal, for no one considers that those power-hungry perverts consider anything but pleasure and power. A scandal destroys faith among believers. Inviting those … Continue reading Tactics with the new Red Guard.

The Fat Pharisees and Hungry Disciples.

The morning plan involves a run. Which will not happen certain days when I do procedures at an early hour. This is one of these days, and after yesterday's gym session Robyn is saying that everything hurts. We have a blog I need to update about eating healthy -- so it does not take over … Continue reading The Fat Pharisees and Hungry Disciples.

No longer from dust.

The lectionary has taken us into teaching that I only hear in funerals. In fact, I don't think I have heard a sermon on this passage in my life. We do not think about the fate of our bodies, and that in our flesh we shall see God This is an ancient teaching. Many argue … Continue reading No longer from dust.

There is no virtue but Christ.

The virtue spirals of this life are but a delusion. You cannot earn your way into the favour of God. Our salvation is costly, for it took the death of a the one perfect man, God incarnate, to atone for my transgressions, let alone yours. The idea that we can somehow show that we are … Continue reading There is no virtue but Christ.

These are the days [Rom 14]

It quote brother Mundabor a fair amount. One of the people I read and quote is Scott, who is Serbian Orthodox. I consider both members of troubled churches: there are many faithful in the Roman Church, but few of them are in the leadership, which seems to want to converge with the Uniting Church of … Continue reading These are the days [Rom 14]

Rhetoric is not exegesis [I Cor 4]

I like John Wright. I also like Hilaire Belloc, Ann Bernhardt, and Mundabor. They may not like being put in the same group, but all of them are unapologetically Catholic (Roman) and I prefer my coffee and wine neat. (I would have included Alte in this group, but she is a wise young woman, and, … Continue reading Rhetoric is not exegesis [I Cor 4]

Apostasy elite violent makes [Mt 24]

Every morning in my inbox I have a series of concerns and issues. If I switch on the news there is war and rumours of terror. But we have good news. It is going to get far worse. The people of the lie will continue to manipulate, to believe their own untruths, until their sin, … Continue reading Apostasy elite violent makes [Mt 24]

The truth is not abusive, Petunia offense notwithstanding [I Peter 5]

Well, we have those who see all discipline as abuse and all confrontation as power come in and double down on the church. Dalrock has a series of articles about the wife of a pastor who claims she was abused... and now wants out. And the commentators there are cynical. With good reason: as I … Continue reading The truth is not abusive, Petunia offense notwithstanding [I Peter 5]

Academic cowardice and the world does not care for college football.

I have some news for the Left. My love is outlawed. For I try, and fail, to obey the greatest command. To love the LORD my God with all my heart and soul and mind. The last two generations have forgotten that: thinking that if they regulate how we love our neighbour we will have … Continue reading Academic cowardice and the world does not care for college football.

The font of SJW hatred: the Kingdom to Come [Neh 6]

It is interesting how things work in parallel, My Papist Brother's last blog post is a perfect introduction to the text for today, and I would happily agree with his sentiment. For I am no elder. I sit in the pew. Although I have some (rusty) Greek and (creaking) Latin, I am no theologian. What … Continue reading The font of SJW hatred: the Kingdom to Come [Neh 6]
