Catechism


Q. Do we come into the world as upright as
did our first parent?

A. No: he came into the world sinless, being made so of God Almighty, but we came into the world sinners, being made
so by his pollution.

Q. How does it appear that we came into the
world polluted?

A. We are the fruit of an unclean thing, are defiled in our very
conception, and are by nature the children of
wrath (Job 14:4; Psa 51:5; Eph 2:3).

Q. Can you make further proof of this?

A. Yes, it is said, That by one man came sin,
death, judgment, and condemnation upon all
men (Rom 5:12-19).

Q. Do we then come sinners into the world?

A. Yes, we are transgressors from the womb,
and go astray as soon as we are born, speaking
lies (Isa 48:8; Psa 58:3).

Q. But as Adam fell with us in him, so did he
not by faith rise with us in him? for he had no
seed until he had the promise.

A. He fell as a public person (ie: Federal Head), but believed the promise as a single person. Adam’s faith saved not the world, though Adam’s sin overthrew it.

Q. But do not some hold that we are sinners
only by imitation?

A. Yes, being themselves deceived. But God’s word saith, we are children of wrath by nature, that is, by birth and
generation.

Q. Can you bring further proof of this?

A. Yes: in that day that we were born, we were
polluted in our own blood, and cast out to the
loathing of our persons. Again, the children of
old that were dedicated unto the Lord, a
sacrifice was offered for them at a month old,
which was before they were sinners by
imitation (Eze 16:4-9; Num 18:14-16).

Q. Can you make this appear by experience?

A. Yes: the first things that bloom andput forth themselves in children, show their ignorance of God, their disobedience to parents, and their innate enmity to holiness of life; their
inclinations naturally run to vanity. Besides little children die, but that they could not, were they not of God counted sinners; for death is the wages of sin (Rom 6:23).

Q. What is sin?

A. It is a transgression of
the law (1 John 3:4).

Q. A transgression of what law?

A. Of the law of our nature, and of the law of the ten
commandments as written in the holy scriptures (Rom 2:12-15; Exo 20).

Q. When doth one sin against the law of
nature?

A. When you do anything that your conscience tells you is a transgression against God or man (Rom 2:14,15).

Catechism


Q. Do men go body and soul to hell so soon as they die?

A. The body abides in the grave
till the sound of the last trump; but the soul, if the man dies wicked, goes presently from the face of God into hell, as into a prison, there to
be kept till the day of judgment

(1 Cor 15:52; Isa 24:22; Luke 12:20).

Frenetic Friday


Well it has been a while, and heat, wildfires, and an online class that I have been taking has consumed most of my time. However, it’s time once again for that favorite rant against culture Frenetic Friday! (void where prohibited by law)

Yes it is time once again for a feminist update. Point of fact here is Andrew Klavan with the leftese dictionary F is for feminism.

Oh that guy kills me. And now a word about masculinity from Allie Stucky:

And in a totally unrelated story CNN reports on the hiring of male dancers.

Well if that doesn’t increase viewership I don’t know what will.

And last but certainly not least is this article from the Art of Manliness:

Using principles similar to Angelo Siciliano, after he got sand kicked in his face at the beach, the prisoner, I mean the individual uses his own body weight and the available furniture to aid him to develop the form that is the envy of everyone in cell block B.

Well it’s been a while since I have come across a robot being used in such a unique manner, but to combat ophiods this town is turning to a robot that tests poop.

So have you read about that New Mexico Compound where eleven abused children were being trained to be school shooters?

According to an ABC News report:

The documents allege that 39-year-old Siraj Wahhaj was conducting weapons training at the property in Amalia, near the Colorado border. A foster parent of one of the 11 children allegedly stated to law enforcement that Wahhaj had “trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings,” according to a criminal complain

The most important thing to remember about this report is the fact that not once is the man identified as a follower of Islam even though he is, and the question needs to be asked would this be true if the man in question has been a Christian?

And last a new comic by Adam Ford on hate speech:

Catechism


Q. Where does this alienation from God
appear?

A. In the love they have to their sins, in their being loth to come to him, in their pleading idle excuses for their sins, and in their
ignorance of the excellent mysteries of his blessed gospel (Eph 2:2,3,11,12, 4:18,19; Rom1:28).

Q. What is temporal death?

A. To have body and soul separated asunder, the body
returning to the dust as it was, and the spirit to God that gave it (Gen 3:19; Eccl 12:7).

Q. What is everlasting death?

A. For body and soul to be separate for ever from God, and to be cast into hell fire (Luke 13:27; Mark 9:43).
