Frenetic Friday


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.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

First Phil Johnson has returned to blogging. When I first started reading various blogs on the internet The Pyromaniacs was the first one on my list.

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.

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.

Update


Yes it’s been a while but I am committed to a Frenetic Friday this week.

Catechism


Q. Do his works of providence also declare
him?

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

Catechism


Q. Do you understand him by the works of
creation?

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)

Catechism


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.

Earworm Wednesday: I say a little prayer ~Lianne La Havas


So I was listening to the Andrew Klavan (no ‘e’) podcast when under stuff he likes comes this song that I can’t get out of my head. So yes I was earwormed. So I went looking for this artist and well the result is this Wednesday’s earworm.

So here is Lianne La Havas covering a classic by Aretha Franklin.
