Movie Review Argo

Well if you watch the debacle that was the academy awards then you know that Argo won best picture award.

Now I saw Argo literally two hours before I watched the Oscars. So I may have been biased with regards to the other films in that category.

Still I would encourage you to watch this dramatization of what the Canadian ambassador and the CIA did to get out the six people that took refuge in the ambassador’s house.

Having said that I would point out there is adult language used through out the movie so be aware of that and take appropriate measures.

I give this five stars out of five.


Q. 27. What offices does Christ execute as our Redeemer?

A. Christ, as our Redeemer, executes the offices of a prophet, of a priest, and of a king, both in His estate of humiliation and exaltation.

Moses said, ‘The Lord God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your brothers. You shall listen to him in whatever he tells you.  Acts 3:22

as he says also in another place,

“You are a priest forever,
after the order of Melchizedek.”  Hebrews 5:6

“As for me, I have set my King
on Zion, my holy hill.”  Psalm 2:6)

Frenetic Friday

Well it has been awhile since I did a Frenetic Friday so here is the late night version.

Tim Tebow can’t catch a break.  If they aren’t commenting on his lack skill as a quarter back then the media is harping about the churches he is attending or not attending.  See it really doesn’t matter that he has backed out of attending First Baptist Dallas they will find anything they can to make his testimony non-effectual.
Dr Jeffress comments on the Tim Tebow conflict:
BTW Just for the record with regard to the beliefs of First Baptist Dallas and the exclusivity of salvation only through Christ I am 100 percent aligned with them.
Just in case you hadn’t noticed we are getting close to Easter.  Now typically I am banned from the history channel at this time.  Why you ask?  Well I’m happy to enlighten you.  Typically during Easter (and Christmas) history channel will drag out various shows like “the lost books of the bible”, which isn’t the Apocrypha no its the gnostic gospels.  Along with that will be the extreme liberal whack nuts who will deny that any part of the canon actually existed and that Jesus was really in India learning Zen meditation from the Buddhist monks.  This usually has me frothing at the mouth and yelling at the television.    So because my family would like me to not stroke out while yelling at the television the history channel is blocked from my view during this time. (Literally standing in front of the screen at times.)  However, something different seems to be happening see this:
You know I love the Marines I think they exemplify what bravery, duty and pride should be regarding the military.  But who knew they had a playful side?
Well what can follow that?  How about an update on our Robotic Overlords!
It seems that the SyFy channel (I really hate that name change from Sci-Fi) has come up with another reality show this one involving people controlling fighting robots.  Okay I admit it squealed with delight.  I mean it’s fighting robots!  Fighting Robots!
That is it for tonight.

Movie Review: Tai Chi 0

I had great hopes for this film. After all it promised two of my favorite genres in one: Kung Fu and Steampunk. Unfortunately my hopes were dashed. The plot is too convoluted and the director’s need to identify the actors in the movie as they appear in the film really turns me off.

Don’t bother renting this not even from Redbox it isn’t worth your time.

I’m giving this zero Kung Fu kicks.


Q 26. How did Christ, being the Son of God, become man?

A. Christ, the Son of God became man by taking to himself a true body and a reasonable soul; being conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary and born of her, yet without sin.

Hebrews 2:14  Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil.

Matthew 26:38 Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.”

Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.

John 12:27 “Now is my soul troubled. And what shall I say? ‘Father, save me from this hour’? But for this purpose I have come to this hour.

Luke 1:31,35  And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.

Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Hebrews 7:26 For it was indeed fitting that we should have such a high priest, holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.

Earworm Wednesday

The Vigilantes of Love were a group I learned about while listening to the White Horse Inn podcast. This is one of my favorites from them and has been wandering in my head all this week.
