I miss Goose. He was the best wing man Maverick ever had. And this one goes out to all the wing men who always had their buddy’s back or sang back up.
Q. Is he known by his judgments?
A. ‘The Lord has made himself known; he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. ’ (Psa 9:16)
It’s been a long time between posts and frankly I have too much to manage in one Frenetic Friday. So I am going to hit some highlights.
So by now no doubt you’re aware that the Boy Scouts of America has by allowing girls into the group has changed their name to just Scouts BSA. Of course the Girl Scouts are upset, seeing this as just another way to take members from them. But a new twist has come about it seems at the 24th World Scout Jamboree condoms must be provided.
Now Snopes that bastion of truth telling has said that:
This decision was made by the World Organization of the Scout Movement, not Boy Scouts of America; condoms have been available at these events since the early 1990s and an official policy mandating condoms was implemented in 2002; the 2019 World Scout Jamboree won’t be the first such event with women and girls in attendance.
What isn’t clear from Snopes is whether the Scouts BSA isn’t part of the organization of the World Scouts. Fortunately a quick look at the about section of the Scouts BSA answers that question in the affirmative.
Albert Mohler recently published this article at his website. Wrath of God poured out – The Humiliation of the Southern Baptist Convention.
If you are not up to speed with what has been happening with the SBC then Tom Ascol has kindly provided a way to get partially up to speed.
- This Christianity Today article on the resignation of the SBC Executive Director
- This news release from Southwestern Seminary
- This Washington Post article about Southwestern’s trustees’ actions this week
- This Rod Dreher article on the debacle, including a horrible “attempt at satire” by the leader (edit: now former leader) of the Connect316 and sbctoday.com organizations.
And now its time for
Robots, what can’t they do? Well the list is getting shorter in a recent New York Post article robots are being used to grow human parts.
But it’s not all altruistic. The Pentagon has recently spent a billion dollars to acquire more War Robots.
And that is Frenetic Friday.
When I am trying to solder tiny hair thick wires to a pad the size of a broken rice kernal with these kielbasas I laughingly refer to as fingers I like to listen to the Corner Room. Their arrangements of the Psalms are calming and worshipful. Take a listen.

Yes it’s been a while but I am committed to a Frenetic Friday this week.
Q. Do his works of providence also declare
A. They must needs do it, since through
his providence the whole creation is kept in
such harmony as it is, and that in despite of sin
and devils; also, if you consider that from an
angel to a sparrow, nothing falls to the ground
without the providence of our heavenly Father
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father Matt. 10:29
So I was on Twitter when someone asked what were my top five 80’s songs and Let’s Dance by David Bowie was on that list. So guess what has been running through my head today? So here’s Walk the Moon.
Q. Do you understand him by the works of
A. ‘The heavens declare the glory of
God; and the firmament sheweth his handy work’ (Psa 19:1). ‘For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly
seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead’ (Rom 1:20)
So a person who follows me on Twitter, Sunday Nutter, was kind enough to point me to another electric bluesman. So enjoy Aynsley Lister covering that Prince classic Purple Rain.
Q. Is this God, being a Spirit, to be known?
A. Yes, and that by his works of creation, by
his providences, by the judgments that he
executes, and by his word.
