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).

Catechism


Q. What was the due desert of that transgression?

A. Spiritual death in the day he did it, temporal death afterwards, and everlasting death last of all (Gen 2:17, 3:19; Matt 25:46).

Q. What is it to be spiritually dead?

A. To be alienate from God, and to live without him in the world, through the ignorance that is in man, and through the power of their sins (Eph 4:18,19).

Frenetic Friday a video


This is going to be short and sweet. First look at this:

Consider this, what is the ultimate source of issues in the church? Is it not ignorance of the scripture? If you are on social media you have seen exactly what has been shown in this video.

What is worse is when, and I speak from personal experience here, you confront the offender and get mobbed by the “social media christians” for being “unloving”, or and this is my favourite one ” too serious” about the posts. As if saying heretical statements about God or the Bible isn’t a serious matter.
The point is as the bible says:

my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge Hosea 4:6

Our lack of bible knowledge is killing the church.

Frenetic Friday


Well, well, well its Friday once again and I do believe we have a really big show for you tonight. So away we go!


Our first item of the night is this new study that has found that women are hard wired to find well meaning SEXIST men more attractive. (emphasis mine)  And why is this so?  Well according to the scientists who did the study women think that such men are more likely protect them, provide for them and commit to a relationship.  So what is considered sexist according to the study?  if they are chivalrous or think women need a man to protect them.  So think about this.  If you’ve been taught to say open the door for a lady, stand when a woman enters a room, remove your hat when speaking to a lady., in times of danger protect the women before yourself.    All this is a form of benevolent sexism.  Or manners as taught by your grandfather and grandmother, or in my case father and mother if you were fortunate to have this happen to you.  (if you were raised in the south  manners are part of the culture and this is the norm.)  But wait there is more it seems that even women who consider themselves strong feminists showed the same preferences in the study by British and US researchers.   That must really grind their gears. <source>

 

 

 

 

So have you ever seen this skit:

If you have you’ll recognize it as one of the classic Monty Python sketches.  Many is the time that I laughed myself silly over such skits.  Well according the head of comedy at the BBC, Shane Allen, Monty Python  wouldn’t get on the BBC because:

If you’re going to assemble a team now it’s not going to be six Oxbridge white blokes,” Allen said in June. “It’s going to be a diverse range of people who reflect the modern world.”

Terry Gilliam a member of the troupe and an American said in response to the claim that Monty Python was too white said:

I no longer want to be a white male, I don’t want to be blamed for everything wrong in the world: I tell the world now I’m a black lesbian. … My name is Loretta and I’m a BLT, a black lesbian in transition.”
“[Allen’s] statement made me so angry, all of us so angry,” he said. “Comedy is not assembled, it’s not like putting together a boy band where you put together one of this, one of that everyone is represented.”<source>

Now let’s go to the Pacific Northwest


Ah Seattle really you can’t find a more liberal city unless you’re on the east coast or in California.  Well seems that Seattle to protect the environment has placed a ban on plastic straws.  That means all the fast food restaurants and other restaurants have to go to either a paper of a paper/plastic composite straw.  Or you have a note from a doctor that  states you must use a plastic drinking straw.  And if you don’t have that note, well that is a $250 fine.  <source>

And last but not least this:

The blurb below says this:

No one is born white. But while there is no biological basis for a white race, whiteness is real. What’s more, whiteness as a way of being in the world has been parasitically joined to Christianity, and this is the ground of many of our problems today. It is time to redouble the efforts of the church and its institutions to muster well-informed, gospel-based initiatives to fight racialized injustice and overcome the heresy of whiteness.

Written by a world-class roster of scholars, Can “White” People Be Saved? develops language to describe the current realities of race and racism. It challenges evangelical Christianity in particular to think more critically and constructively about race, ethnicity, migration, and mission in relation to white supremacy.

Historical and contemporary perspectives from Africa and the African diaspora prompt fresh theological and missiological questions about place and identity. Native American and Latinx experiences of colonialism, migration, and hybridity inspire theologies and practices of shalom. And Asian and Asian American experiences of ethnicity and class generate transnational resources for responding to the challenge of systemic injustice. With their call for practical resistance to the Western whiteness project, the perspectives in this volume can revitalize a vision of racial justice and peace in the body of Christ.<source>

And let me remind you of this:

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.  Romans 1:16 (emphasis mine)

 

Catechism


Q. How long was he in making the world?

A. ‘In six days the Lord made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that in them is’ (Exo 20:11).
‘And on the seventh day God ended his work
which he had made’ (Gen 2:2).

Catechism


Q. Of what did God make the world?

A.‘Things which are seen were not made of things
which do appear’.

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:3

Catechism


Q. Is he known by his word?

A. Yes, most clearly: for by that he revealeth his attributes, his decrees, his promises, his way of worship,
and how he is to be pleased by us.

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.
