You Have Got To Be Kidding

June 16, 2006

Here is yet another example of the lunacy rampant in our cultures.

Love to the Lobster

Maybe the pro-baby murder abortionists are just trying to save those babies from children tapping on the expectant mom's belly.

Ridiculous.

Lest Anyone Should Wonder

June 14, 2006

Let it be known that the official position of this blogger is that God is the author and creator of life. He, by His Sovereign design, determines when life begins and when life ends. To that end, the act of aborting an unborn child in all instances where the life of the mother is not endangered is a sin – akin to murder.

Wherein the mother's life is endangered, all diligence in prayer should be sought, beseeching the mercies of God upon the mother and child to provide an alternative which will allow both to live. In the extremely rare instances where this prayer is not granted, and should the defense of the mother's life be chosen, the hand of mankind should tread lightly, and with fear of our Lord, in defense of the mother.

I am unashamedly pro-life and anti-abortion.

Just in case anyone should wonder.

Who Should Deal With It

June 5, 2006

The "it" is the legal issue of "gay marriage". I put the term in quotes because I simply do not believe in any practical or real sense of the word that it is possible. Marriage, which has been ordained by God, simply cannot be accomplished by two dudes or two gals. It is impossible.

They can enter into a binding contract that is recognized by local, state or federal law – but it will not be marriage. Some 'civilized' folk like to call this a 'civil union'. Alright, go ahead an make yourself happy, if that will do it.

Alan, the Calvinist Gadfly, turned me on to this blog by Lashawn Barber.  It is a primarily political blog.  I likey. 

My question for you is – if we (or you) believe that the government should regulate "gay marriage" (i.e. outlaw it), then which government should do it? There are really only three choices:

1. The Federal Government – which will could accomplish this through an amendment to the United States Constitution. The primary benefit – judges at the federal and state level would be prevented from thwarting the will of the people in creating a law. In case you are not aware, a Fulton County Superior Court judge recently declared Georgia's definition of a marriage as being between a man and a woman as 'unconstitutional'. I believe that popular support for this referendum was around 70% – but what right do people have to create laws for their own and societal's well being – right?

2. State Governments – Should state governments be allowed to make the determination on a state by state basis as to whether or not 'two dudes wanting to enter matrimonial bliss' is legal?

3. Who cares – maybe you just don't really care…. and think that if gays want to "marry" we should let 'em.

Guiroo and I had a discussion regarding how Christians view and treat the sin of homosexuality a few months back. It was enlightening to me, in that I really realized how difficult it is for me to 'forgive' that sin – or even to see the value of sharing the gospel with a homosexual. What a sin on my part!

So, I am not saying I am there yet – and not condoning continued homosexual activity after someone places their faith in Christ – but I suspect that a lot of us have a great amount of disdain and disgust for this sin. Here's to praying that we would have the same level of disgust for all known sin in our lives.

So, what say you folk. Pick one of the three and tell me why.

Schultzie Draws Response

May 14, 2006

My boy Schultizie posted on Sandra McCracken's blog a week or two back. Sandra has replied. See the conversation here.

I like Sandra's music. I really appreciate what she has done with ancient hymns – taking these songs with rich, deep lyrics – and setting them to modern music. She is a true artist.

From my perspective, she is also a politician. Her brand of politics, while grounded in good intentions, creates in me a great deal of consternation. For what it is worth, I wish that she'd stick to hymns and songs.

She makes this comment: "corporations have too much unchecked power over our society."

What say you?

And now a word from the LEFT side of the faith….

I am waiting in deep anticipation for her next political post – hoping that she finds America's freaky obsession with saving trees and killing babies a topic worthy of her exposition.

She writes some great music, though. 

Scientology, Islam and Red China

So what kind of society have we come to live in, where it is permissible to mock Christ in the most disgusting ways – but let's not pick on Islam or Scientology.

Yikes!! Click Here. 

Did Jabez live in the Sudan?

April 1, 2006

“Do you want to be extravagantly blessed by God? Are you ready to reach for the extraordinary? To ask God for the abundant blessings He longs to give you? Join Bruce Wilkinson to discover how the remarkable prayer of a little-known Bible hero can release God’s favor, power, and protection.”

I am ashamed to say that I own the book. I didn’t pay for it. It was given to me – but in a moment of weakness, I failed to throw it on the bonfire – and it remains in my office. My daughter Ellie touched it the other day whilst playing with the books on the shelf. I should probably check her hands for burn marks….

I think the quote (which comes from the back of the book) says it all. We need to ship a few hundred thousand of these over to the Sudan, where the Sudanese Christians who are starving to death and being mercilessly slaughtered through systematic genocide can read about little Jabez, and they can grab hold of those blessings that God so longs to give them – for them to know His favor and power and protection.

Unbelievable drivle.

Alright – on a lighter note: Give me five of your favorite movies of all time (ratings will not be held against you). Here are five of mine (ranked, sort of):

1. The Shawshank Redemption
2. Groundhog Day
3. The Princess Bride
4. Serendipity
5. Braveheart

Ciao.
