Not a typo.. Our daughter, in her new kitchen, made us “sheet pan frittatas” yesterday. We took mimosas on the back porch, talked shop, watched our grandson, Silas, blowing bubbles, gave Mary a few presents, lazed on the lawn, napped, and parted. In the driveway, on the way out, Mary gave voice to the reality..
Christ, The Word, The Church, The Republic
We tend to see equality of outcome as a sign of fair play, even spiritual holiness, but it’s the devil, not God, who longs for a brutal and boring equality.. Ponder the very foundations for a moment. In the very first chapter of the Bible, God declares a rigid hierarchy. Man is to have dominion..
The Wildly Popular Bible Teacher Lacks Depth.. There is much to be said for John MacArthur. He has a high view of scripture and he’s not afraid of being unpopular. After waffling a bit early on in the Covid crisis, he opened his church for worship and defied county and state mandates banning group worship. ..
Epstein’s victims: a metaphor for all of us.. It’s a heart-breaking, cruel and baffling picture: a dewy young woman– anxious to make her mark in the world–is promised the glories of high-society introductions, admission to elite universities, and professional advancement in a club that is chock full of billionaires and luminaries. And, by the way,..
It’s not really a child.. Seventy different “Pro-Life” organizations penned an open letter on the subject of criminalizing abortion this week. With the anticipated fall of Roe V. Wade, many states are proposing criminal penalties for providing or seeking an abortion. There has been a huge amount of disinformation purveyed by pro-abortion groups on this..
Lying For The Lord The epistle of James, throughout the centuries, has proven a challenge for even the most sincere Christians, (Martin Luther among them), because it puts faith to the test. If we agree we are saved by grace alone, through faith in Christ, then we would be wise to make sure our “faith”..
The Regularizing Influence: I was a nerdy grind in my late 1970s public high school, but the television was on quite a bit at home, with the usual cycle: afternoon re-runs of the Rifleman and Ozzie & Harriet, followed by evening news, a break for family dinner, a few mom-approved sitcoms and then, sometimes, nightly..
What my critics have in common.. The times in which we live: In the event we return to public health sanity across the globe someday, and my current outrage appears incomprehensible, I note at the outset that Australia has, at this writing, descended into public health totalitarianism, complete with mandatory apps designed to keep you..
Let this one sink in… “They adapted the mice using human fetal tissue by the way.” Not only is the Commie virus (Covid 19), a pathogen designed by human beings, its very engineering was made possible by human fetal cell tissue used to “humanize” mice.. It’s mentioned as an aside by Chris Waldburger here, but..
“Bobby Martin had already stuffed his pockets full of stones..” With the possible exception of cafeteria pizza on Fridays, nothing feels, to me, more “late 20th century public school” than reading and discussing Shirley Jackson’s 1948 short story, “The Lottery” I think, in my own case, we may have been assigned it twice, and it..
