Why was it necessary for Christ, the Redeemer, to die?

    Since death is the punishment for sin, Christ died willingly in our place to deliver us from the power and penalty of sin and bring us back to God. By his substitutionary atoning death, he alone redeems us from hell and gains for us forgiveness of sin, righteousness, and everlasting life.

    Colossians 1:21–22

    On Hiatus

    Mrs Keachfan has hurt herself and I bound by my covenant duties to help her during her recuperating.  So the blog will be silent for at least a week maybe longer depending on her recovery.  If you desire please pray for her health and a quick healing.


    Why must the Redeemer be truly God?

      That because of his divine nature his obedience and suffering would be perfect and effective; and also that he would be able to bear the righteous anger of God against sin and yet overcome death.

      Acts 2:24

      God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it.

      Special Saturday

      Yes it is that special time when the meandering mind of a curmudgeon Calvinist awakens from that deep slumber and rears its head and with its jaundiced eyes see what is going on in the world.

      First a little something from the Robotic Over Lords.

      Can you believe your eyes?  Here is the final end of Christianity, and by end I don’t mean goal.  An automaton programmed to give you a blessing.  The ultimate in ecumenical you can program the robot to give you a blessing in all the denominations of Christianity, not to mention Buddhist, Hindu, Islam all you need is the right software program. Think of this you can have a robot father confessor, a preprogrammed robot that can deliver a sermon, do communion all you have to do dial in what you want to hear.  And it will all be based on your felt needs. (Robot priest heralds Christianity’s Death in Europe)

      Why are we afraid of robots?  Can it be it is because we don’t believe in God?

      In our post-Freudian world, where mind has been reduced to brain chemistry and the idea of a transpersonal soul long banished from university curricula, this assumption is quite widespread. Taught to think of themselves as biological computers, people naturally fear that real computers—advanced so they can walk, converse, and learn from their mistakes—will inevitably take their place.

      Read it all here and ask yourself do I fear them because I don’t believe in God?

      That is it for tonight prepare yourself for worship tomorrow.  Good night.
