Earworm Wednesday: Mike Massé ~ America (Simon and Garfunkel) 


So I see this commercial all the time where this family takes a road trip because of the dying request of their grandfather who wanted to see America but time and other things made it impossible.  And this is the song playing as this car commercial does its level best to wring all the emotional content it can and maybe bring a tear to your eyes. 

 So I give you Mike Massé, Sterling Cottam, and Jeff Hall singing America. 

Monday, monday 


Ah technology how wonderful it is.  Just a FYI gentle readers no matter what they say, no matter how shiny and new it all is, count on no less than 48 hours to one week to get everything switched over when transferring from one smart phone to the next.  But that isn’t what I wanted to talk to you today.  Officially I am off hiatus the wife is back to semi normal so I can devote time to the blog.

Now I know that Mondays have been devoted to movie reviews and I have an amusing story regarding that.  As you know Sunday was Father’s Day.  And my son wanting to the Dad/Son thing decided to take me out to the movies.  Now we had seen most of the new releases so our choice was limited,  Seeing that we decided to see the latest Johnny Depp/Pirate movie.  Well we are about two-thirds through the thing when the fire alarm goes off and the building is evacuated.  My son being the good man that he is saw me to my car first before going to his.  I love that boy.  But in regards to the movie, well it was drabbing awful.  And I speculate that someone pulled the alarm to keep our brains from leaking out our ears.  So my recommendation is to skip that movie and go see something else.

And speaking of drabbing awful it amazes me sometimes the people who follow me in twitter.  Some I just block, immediately some well they are subtle in their awfulness.  Take for instance a fellow that goes by Balm of Gilead.  He tweeted that we must die an perish in the lake of fire removing the vapor of our lives to leave behind the substance of Christ.  It’s not often that I am gob smacked on twitter but he did it.  So I told him to check his theology one thing led to another and I find out that he is a gnostic.  But not the old gnostic he is gnostic 2.0 He experiences his theology.  Can’t stand that I use quotes from commentaries and confessions not to mention the Bible itself to disprove his heterodoxical views.  I use words he, being so much more enlightened {he really is like the old gnostics isn’t he} uses experiences.  But it is the Faith not the force that I follow.  That what was once for all delivered to the saints.  You know where we study not experience to show ourselves approved? Anyway the upshot of this is be careful who you follow  dear readers especially on social media because you just don’t really know who they might turn out to be.

See you next time.

Catechism 


Does Christ’s death mean all our sins can be forgiven?

    Yes, because Christ’s death on the cross fully paid the penalty for our sin, God graciously imputes Christ’s righteousness to us as if it were our own and will remember our sins no more.

    2 Corinthians 5:21

    For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we m

    Earworm Wednesday: Killer Queen ~ Fredde Gredde


    Well now, things are improving health wise at the house.  Mrs. Keachfan is able to walk around a little but like anything time is the number one healer.  

    So it comes to this Queen’s song, ‘Killer Queen’ was on the radio and well I was humming it all day much to the annoyance of my co-workers.  So I found an enterprising young man who covered the song uniquely.

    Catechism 


    Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

      Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.

      Colossians 1:21–22

      PS: To all praying for my wife she is getting better please continue to pray for her. 

      On Hiatus

      Catechism


      Why must the Redeemer be truly God?

        That because of his divine nature his obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also that he would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death.

        Acts 2:24

        God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.
