From the lethargic mire a hand struggles, rises, grasps the (metaphorical) pen and begins to write.
Oh yeah I have a blog maybe I should write something seeing its a new year and all.
Speaking of New Year’s resolutions have you finally floundered and given up? I have made one resolution this year and that was not to make any resolutions. So far I have been able to keep this but we’ll if I can keep it.
If you are planning on reading the bible in a year Ligonier Ministries has a series of plans you maybe interested in you can find them here: Bible Reading for 2020.
Personally I have started the M’Cheyne audio bible podcast, ESV, as I find I easier to listen to the bible being read to me. I especially like this podcast as it is is just an articulate speaker reading the various verses. There is no commentary unlike some other bible reading podcasts.
But this is a Frenetic Friday so let’s get into it.
Yes here we are the first culture war post of the year. And I am about to make a suggestion, there is a term that has been used during oh at least the passed decade maybe more that I think needs to be retired. Post Christian culture. Let’s quit pretending that Christian culture is still the guiding force behind anything in the western world. We have slipped into pagan culture whether you call it secular, post modern, or whatever it no longer has any basis in Christianity and is actively opposed to it. The war has started and we are still trying to appease the enemy like Chamberlain did in England.
So on yesterday’s briefing (ht: Albert Mohler) a new app was discussed this app matches men and women who want to be parents. The article (click link) tells how some women who want children, but not marriage per se are looking for not just a sperm donor but someone who will also commit to being a father to the child. So all the benefits of marriage but none of the commitment. Or as they put in the article:
“that match would-be parents who want to share custody of a child without any romantic expectations. It’s a lot like a divorce, without the wedding or the arguments.”
So here we are marriage has become a non thing. And this is what I mean by by saying post christian should no longer be the designator of what the contemporary culture is, christianity defined what a family should be. That is no longer the case. Now the pagan culture defined what is family and it makes sure that it isn’t what is defined by scripture.
Well moving forward now that we are in the “twenties” I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to take a look at how our future over lords are progressing in their overthrow of humanity. And for that we turn to Japan. Here is the latest:
And with that dear readers I bid you good night. Thanks for sticking around with me.
