So the flu…


Taking a chance with my health I postponed my annual flu shot and of course I got the flu.  You know the gut wrenching vomiting the high fever with the accompanied chills that makes you pile 500 blankets on you to stay “warm”.  

Waking up the next day your clothes soaked in sweat and your pain receptors are so high moving your fingers through your hair radiates pain through your whole body.  Not to mention you are parched as if you went through the desert with only a cup of warm water.

The flu.

So when I get over this posts will continue.  And I am going to get my flu shot.

Movie Reviews


So I am thinking about doing what I would call my fifty great classic movies.  Many of these are from what is called the golden age of Hollywood.  But it won’t be exclusive to that era.  So I am formulating a list and will take suggestions.  Stay tuned.

Frenetic Friday


I suppose it would help if I switched over to English instead of Esperanto for my keyboard app.  Welcome to Keachfan’s blog.  Still tidying up around here the theme needs a few personal tweaks to make it my own but let’s get to the serious stuff.

So the Las Vegas shooting.  You know better people than I have commented on this and frankly I suggest that you check out what Albert Kohler had to say about it.  An act of pure evil searching for meaning in the Las Vegas shooting.

Needless to say, yet I will say it prayers for the victims.  May the hope and comfort of the Gospel be presented to them.

And in other news the Archbishop of Canterbury can’t answer a question that previous Archbishops could.  Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican Communion was asked in an interview whether having gay sex was sinful.  His reply is printed below.

‘Because I don’t do blanket condemnation and I haven’t got a good answer to the question. I’ll be really honest about that. I know I haven’t got a good answer to the question. Inherently, within myself, the things that seem to me to be absolutely central are around faithfulness, stability of relationships and loving relationships.’

He agreed that this could be between a man and a man or a woman and a woman.

But he added: ‘I am also aware – a view deeply held by tradition since long before Christianity, within the Jewish tradition – that marriage is understood invariably as being between a man and a woman. Or, in various times, a man and several women, if you go back to the Old Testament. I know that the Church around the world is deeply divided on this in some places, including the Anglicans and other Churches, not just us, and we are – the vast majority of the Church is – deeply against gay sex.’

Of course this is the same Archbishop who said that :

I draw the line in terms of respect for the other; in starting by listening before you speak; in terms of love that is unconditional and not conditional to one iota, to one single element on how the person responds to your own declaration of faith; and of not speaking about faith unless you are asked about faith,

So don’t talk about Christianity unless asked.   Makes me wonder what Latimer and Ridley would say to this as we are closing in on the anniversary  of their martyrdom.

And speaking of political correctness how about being denied a research application because it was politically incorrect?  James Caspian, a psychotherapist specializing on working with transgender people was denied his request to study transgenders who want to do “gender reassignment reversals” after finding out that their surgery didn’t in fact make them happy.   the United Kingdom’s Bath Spa University turned this down because it was “potentially politically incorrect.”  Caspian has worked extensively with gender variant people and has been a trustee of a UK charity “dedicated to education about and support of transgendered, transsexual and cross-dressing individuals.”  Caspian sought this research after speaking with a surgeon who specialized in transgender surgery who told him about “transwomen” coming back and asking to have their male genitalia recreated.  As Caspian investigated this he found more transgender people who regretted having gone through the surgery and wanted to go back to their original gender.   But still the university denied it siting possible criticism toward the university.  (see here for more)

And last but not least the kitchen of the future:

Quick Update


As you can see I have updated the theme of the blog and there is going to be a Frenetic Friday.

Catechism


What should we pray?

    The whole Word of God directs and inspires us in what we should pray, including the prayer Jesus himself taught us.

    Ephesians 3:14–21

    For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

    Catechism


    With what attitude should we pray?

      With love, perseverance, and gratefulness; in humble submission to God’s will, knowing that, for the sake of Christ, he always hears our prayers.

      Philippians 4:6

      Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

      Another false prophet


      I am taking a moment here from my hiatus to poke my finger into the eye of the rapture watch/doomsday cult.  

      People like this false prophet using everything but scripture to tell you lies.

      These Balaams claiming to know something would have us sitting on our roofs waiting for the end.

      Well here’s a clue it didn’t happen. Nobody knows when Christ will return, nobody.

      Matthew 24:36

      But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 

      So read your Bible, listen to the elders in church as they teach and throw away every book that sets dates for future events.

      That is all.

      Catechism


      What is prayer?

        Prayer is pouring out our hearts to Godin praise, petition, confession of sin, and thanksgiving.

        Psalm 62:8

        Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us.
