Frenetic Friday


Well it has been an interesting couple of weeks so let’s just get to it.

If you haven’t seen this take a minute and watch Taylor Lock imitate Trump attending one seminary class.

Trump attending one seminary class ~ Taylor Lock

So if you had $2,821,955.28 aka 2.5 million euros to combat the migrant rape crisis going on in your country what measures would you do? This is Finland’s answer:

This is my answer:

Ok it’s time once again to deny biology and science.

Now according to an article in bbc.com The high court ruled that people who had given birth regardless of their gender (Take your time read the sentence again if needed) are mothers. The transgender man in question wants to be, of course referred to as a father.

Of course the case is being appealed. If the appeal succeeds his (sic) son would become the first person born in England and Wales to not legally have a mother.

Like I said a denial of biology and science.

While we are on the subject let me point you to an article by Rosaria Butterfield over on TableTalk Magazine:

Intersectionality and the Church by Rosaria Butterfield

It is past time for a Robotic Over Lord update.

You’ll love this a growing vine like robot.

And of course someone decided to recreate the biggest snake that ever lived as a robot.

Stuff of nightmares.

Happy New Year!


Now you’re probably looking at the calendar and wondering if I have lost my mind, however let me explain.  The season of Advent is the beginning of the Church or the Liturgical Year.  The first Sunday in Advent was New Year’s day so to speak just as Rosh Hashanah is the first day of the Jewish New Year and marks the beginning of the high holy days.  So too Advent starts the beginning of the season of the Holy days, or Holidays that mark the Church Year.

Advent, from Latin adventus “a coming, approach, arrival,” marking that time before the Christmas season, the Christmas season lasting twelve days, during this time the church was to focus on the return of Christ, His second coming, as well as preparing to celebrate His first coming.

Typically there were specific readings for Advent corresponding to the readings in the common lectionary.    However I am going to suggest these readings:  Isaiah 9:2. 6-7; Psalm 122; Isaiah 2:2-5; Romans 13:11-14

Each of these readings reflect hope, for that is what this, the first Sunday in Advent represents:  Hope.  For Israel it was the hope of the coming Messiah.  For the Church it is the hope of the Return of Christ. (1 Peter 1:13, 21).  And the important thing to remember is that this hope isn’t like “I hope Uncle Bob comes for Christmas.” or “I hope Aunt Bess makes that whipped dessert for Christmas dinner.”  There is an element of uncertainty in that because Uncle Bob could not come or Aunt Bess not make the dessert.  Not so with us because Christ did come. he fulfilled Israel’s hope, and he will come again fulfilling the Church’s hope.

So today, light a candle, if that is what you do, read the scripture and think on the coming of Christ our hope.

 

Faith’s Checkbook


If, and a Triple Promise
“If My people, which are called by My Name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”   (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Called by the name of the LORD, we are nevertheless erring men and women. What a mercy it is that our God is ready to forgive! Whenever we sin let us hasten to the mercy seat of our God, seeking pardon. We are to humble ourselves. Should we not be humbled by the fact that after receiving so much love we yet transgress? O LORD, we bow before Thee in the dust and own our grievous ingratitude. Oh, the infamy of sin! Oh, the sevenfold infamy of it in persons so favored as we have been! Next, we are to pray for mercy, for cleansing, for deliverance from the power of sin. O LORD, hear us even now, and shut not out our cry. In this prayer we are to seek the LORD’s face. He has left us because of our faults, and we must entreat Him to return. O LORD, look on us in Thy Son Jesus, and smile upon Thy servants. With this must go our own turning from evil; God cannot turn to us unless we turn from sin. hen comes the triple promise of hearing, pardon, and healing. Our Father, grant us these at once, for our LORD Jesus Christ’s sake.

Frenetic Good Friday


Well it has been awhile since I have done a Frenetic Friday post but let’s get to it.

In case you’re living under a rock or in denial this is what is referred to as Holy Week. And today is Good Friday, and more on that later. But I hope that you did notice that as is the norm the various “shows” on Christianity has appeared on various streaming services. The newest one that I noticed is Jesus: Countdown to Calvary made in 2018 and starring Hugh Bonneville. This is playing on Netflixs. And yes I watched and as expected the idea that Jesus was the divine Son of God or the fulfillment of prophecy was completely played down or not mentioned at all. What I did notice was how it was claimed that Jesus came proclaiming a message of, wait for it, “social justice”. I am not really surprised at this an neither should you be if you’ve been keeping up with any of the “social justice” debates that have been going on in Twitter and elsewhere. Just be aware that this and other messages of the same sort will be playing this time especially since Easter or the Sunday celebrating the Resurrection of Jesus however you wish to refer to it draws near.

And speaking of heretical things have you heard about PreachersNSneakers? It is an Instagram account that has pictures of various “hipster” preachers and the expensive sneakers they are wearing. I am not talking about some $150 dollar Nikes here. No, how about $3000 for an off white pair of Jordan 1 from Europe. Or $1100 “Gucci” slippers?

I don’t mind a pastor being well dressed but I have to call into question exactly why do they need that expensive foot wear. What do you think where should this money have gone to?

And keeping with the Good Friday theme, as well as heretical notions a female Roman Catholic theologian has written a book called “Creation and the Cross: The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril” In it Elizabeth Johnson maintains that Anselm‘s satisfaction theory of atonement was completely wrong. Johnson maintains that Anselm based it upon “the political system of the day” and that God’s mercy doesn’t call for a bloody and violent death for our sins. Basically atonement needs to be removed from what Christ did. <source>

Rather than have me bumble through why the atonement is necessary I shall point you to these resources:




And here is a list of resources from Monergism: Penal Substitutionary Atonement

And a list of resources from The Highway: TThe Atonement of Christ

Finally something from Toplady:

Goodnight.

Insomnia Saturday Night


Well I promised a post and since the voices in my head won’t let me sleep let’s get on with the show.

From a reader of the blog comes a story from Great Britain where in a dispensational horror story a British company wants to insert RIF chips into their employees.

Biohax a swedish firm specializing in this microchip implantation promotes this as an security measure for firms. The British trade union says it is an imposition on the employees right to privacy and is just another way to micromanage the employees by the companies. Note: this technology has already been put to use in the United States. (Source)

Yes we have another Robotic Over Lords story for you tonight.

Meet Habitat by Honestbee:

This Singapore store is completely cashless and is run by robots. Using the honestbee app will allow you access to the store, where you can scan the items that you want into your shopping cart using their app and pay for them there. But wait, there is more this store started out as a grocery delivery store where you shipped via the app and robots packaged your groceries into a recyclable bag. Now the store has expanded to laundromat and eatery. Here is a video of the robots packing up the ordered food.

The robots can process 300 customers an hour! Coming soon to a Walmart near you? Maybe. (Source)

Feminism ruins everything

Does math perpetuate “Unearned White Male Privilege” well according to an Illinois professor it does. Rochelle Gutierrez, from the University of Illinois wrote:

On many levels, mathematics itself operates as Whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as White (Source)

And here is the bonus point Rochelle Gutierrez is a math teacher. Think about that as you send your children to university.

And lastly tonight we have an article about a renegade Episcopal Bishop. Ho hum, what’s new you might think. But wait this is different his rebellion is against the Episcopal Church’s new rules.
The Episcopal Church and Western Society have been hijacked by the ‘Gay Rights Agenda,’ which is very well organized, very strategic, very well financed, and very powerful,”The Rev. William Love wrote in the eight-page letter.

The Episcopal Church is just three weeks, at the time of this article, from finalizing the rules for same sex marriage which would take place on December 2. Love has ordered his diocese not to perform any same sex marriage ceremony.

According to The Rev. Susan Russell, an activist for an inclusive church based in the Los Angeles diocese, Love is the only U.S. bishop refusing to comply with the new resolution.

Certain parishioners gathered outside of St. Andrew’s church in Albany to ceremonially burn Bishop Love’s letter. One lesbian, who said she felt very comfortable at St Andrew’s church said:

You come to a church looking for comfort and love and you’re told that you’re acting in concert with Satan? Anybody who doesn’t fit in with his vision of how things should be is unsafe because of his letter and his actions.

William Love Contra Mundum

Good Night.

Frenetic Friday


Once again the sound of Liberty Bell peals out and the tatterdemalion stumbles towards you saying:

Ladies and Gentlemen it is a distinct pleasure to once again post a Frenetic Friday.  And we have a good one for you.

So those of you who are living in Portland have probably seen this:  (warning language)

It is nice to see these thugs get a little comeuppance now if Portland’s mayor would just get a backbone and do the same.

Ligioner Ministries has once again gifted us with The State of Theology

I seriously urge you to go to the website and examine what Evangelicals believe about theology and the Bible.

 

 

 

Yes you know what that means the Robotic Over Lords has stepped u[ their world domination case in point:

And with that terrifying video I bid you good night until the next Frenetic Friday.

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).
