Sorry guys no movie review today keep watching next week there will be one.
Q. 86. What is required in the tenth commandment?
A. The tenth commandment requires full contentment with our own condition, with a right and charitable frame of spirit towards our neighbor, and all that is his.
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
But godliness with contentment is great gain
Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.
As you peer through the Stygian darkness a light appears in the distance you walk to realizing that you’ve entered the Frenetic Friday zone.
Well it’s been an interesting week case in point World Vision’s 48 hour walk into insanity which started here when it announced that the US board of the organization announced that it would employ homosexuals who had a legal same-sex marriage. Well the uproar started almost immediately as Evangelical commentators and pastors from across the country pointing out that World Vision a Christian organization had violated biblical standards regarding marriage. Well thankfully World Vision came to it’s senses and reversed it’s decision. It said:
In our board’s effort to unite around the church’s shared mission to serve the poor in the name of Christ, we failed to be consistent with World Vision U.S.’s commitment to the traditional understanding of Biblical marriage and our own Statement of Faith, which says, “We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.” And we also failed to seek enough counsel from our own Christian partners. As a result, we made a change to our conduct policy that was not consistent with our Statement of Faith and our commitment to the sanctity of marriage.
We are brokenhearted over the pain and confusion we have caused many of our friends, who saw this decision as a reversal of our strong commitment to Biblical authority. We ask that you understand that this was never the board’s intent. We are asking for your continued support. We commit to you that we will continue to listen to the wise counsel of Christian brothers and sisters, and we will reach out to key partners in the weeks ahead.
While World Vision U.S. stands firmly on the biblical view of marriage, we strongly affirm that all people, regardless of their sexual orientation, are created by God and are to be loved and treated with dignity and respect.
Of course by doing this the liberals and the homosexual activists are screaming foul which just proves that it is easier never to give up the ground then try to retake it. Here’s hoping that World Vision stays the course.
You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way, for every abominable thing that theLord hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. Deut.12:31
That verse comes to mind when information came from the Telegraph that hospitals in the United Kingdom used the bodies of aborted children in waste to energy plants to heat the hospitals. The remains of over 15,000 children were found to be used in various hospitals as a source of fuel while telling the mothers that the body had been “cremated”. The Department of Health in the UK immediately issued a ban on the practice calling it “totally unacceptable”. I must of course point out that what is now considered unacceptable may in the future be considered the norm. Even Israel when warned or the consequences of burning their children falling into apostasy did burn their children to Molech. (2 Kings 16:3) and while the Department of Health may condemn this now that can change. Pray that the people of the UK hear the gospel once again and return to Christ.
This week also Hobby Lobby’s case went before the Supreme Court. Most people try to portray this as denying birth control but in reality it is about freedom of religion. If this brief fails then what ultimately happens is that the moral underpinnings will be taken away from people and our religious freedom will be relegated to what happens in places of worship rather than what happens in the public arena. And that should scare everyone.
Now under Robotic Over Lords there is news of a drone that can steal the information off your phone. Hackers have created a drone called Snoopy that when the phone connects to the Internet the drone will pretend to be the network the phone is logging into and then take all the data on the phone. So watch the skies when you connect to that free wifi you maybe sharing more than you know.
And last but certainly not least if you must watch a robot playing air hockey then watch this one:
This is brought to you by Les and Tanner the hosts of the Reformed Pubcast where beer, theology, science, games, and pop culture is examined through a Christian worldview. So these guys tweeted the other day what 90’s Christian band did I like best. Right then I knew that: A. I was much older that these two guys and B. I didn’t know any 90’s Christian band now if they had asked me 70’s I would have said 2ND Chapter of Acts or Dallas Holm and Praise right off the top of my head. Finally I came up with White Heart. So here is Independence Day by White Heart. And I can say that I’ve never seen this video before I found it on youtube, which is a good thing because I would never had listened to this group if I had seen this video.
Q. 85. Which is the tenth commandment?
A. The tenth commandment is, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”
“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor’s.”

So this isn’t the song that was dancing in my skull today. No I searched and searched for that song but I couldn’t find it in either my MP3s or online. So I had heard some Jamie N. Commons recently liked what I heard and decided to share it with you.
Veronica who? Yes it is Veronica Mars the little show that could which was one of the only crowd funded films that made $5,702,153 from 91,585 backers in the shortest possible time. So what is this show and where did it come from?
Veronica Mars was a show that started on the now defunct UPN network and then migrated over to the CW network. Veronica was a high school student in Neptune California whose best friend was murdered and she coped with her murder by investigating who killed her. Which didn’t win her any friends in high school and actually made her quite a few enemies. This series which was a grittier version of Nancy Drew lasted for about three seasons and was actually quite good. And then because the fan base was so small they pulled the plug.
But the fans wailed, caterwauling and letting it be known they wanted a movie that would sort of wrap it up because the series ended horribly. And they got it.
It’s been ten years and Veronica Mars has left Neptune California and now lives in New York, she put it all behind her, she’s gotten a degree in Law and is going before the Bar. Or has she? Veronica gets a call from her old boyfriend he is being accused of murder and can she help? And just like that Neptune pulls her back into the hell she ran so hard to get away from.
This is a movie that plays to the fans. You had to watch the series to truly get the little in jokes, and various catty remarks that will constantly barrage Veronica as she tries to find out who murdered her former boyfriend’s girlfriend. Now I admit I am a bit of a fan of the show, although I never saw the last season until I could stream it on Netflix (which you no longer can do). And I admit I was unsatisfied with how it ended. Not so with this movie this brought it all together characters had grown and changed and the movie reflected that. If your a fan and if the movie is playing in your town or if you can stream it take a look I think you’ll like it.
Veronica Mars gets 4 stars
Q. 84. What is forbidden in the ninth commandment?
A. The ninth commandment forbids whatsoever is prejudicial to truth, or injurious to our own, or our neighbor’s good name.
Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Ephesians 4:25
who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
We take this course so that no one should blame us about this generous gift that is being administered by us, for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord’s sight but also in the sight of man. 2 Corinthians 8:20-21
