‘Keep Your Loved Ones Sort of Alive Forever’ (2015)

Here’s an icky idea that came out a few years ago and today makes me wonder if they haven’t already done this with certain of our politicians.

Keep Your Loved Ones Sort of Alive Forever

Yeah! Who needs a seance, when you can recreate somebody as the sum total of his lifetime’s worth of comments on the social media? You are what you tweet.

One thing’s for sure: if you bored people while you were alive, this way, you’ll bore them but good after you’re dead.

Has anybody checked to see whether Joe Biden can fog a mirror?

 

‘On Eagle’s Wings’

Your Favorite Hymns continues with On Eagle’s Wings by Michael Joncas, performed by Walkers to Heaven.

If you have any favorite hymns you’d like to share, just let us know.

By Request, ‘Halleluja’

Erlene made a special request for this one: Halleluja, by the Isaacs, sung in English and Hebrew.

If you want to add to Your Favorite Hymns, there’s room in the cart for as many as you’d like to share.

They Want Us to Shut Up–But We’ll Sing

The Far Left satraps in California have practically banned Thanksgiving, heaping restrictions on it till you can barely see it; and you know, you absolutely know, their hearts are set on banning Christmas.

Again–this is a time for Christians to sing louder. All of us together! In and out of church!

In the Name of Jesus We have the Victory (requested by Phoebe; sung at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden): it makes the devil’s flesh crawl. They don’t want us singing to the Lord, they super-don’t want us singing together (“Divide and rule” has always been their thing), and they certainly don’t want Him to hear us.

Our sins have landed us in this predicament–lorded over by sinners even worse than ourselves. Turning away from our sins and turning to the Lord will get us out of it.

Sing louder! Moses said, “Who is on the Lord’s side? Let him come to me.” Hear him.

‘Ave Maria’ (Bocelli)

Ave Maria, sung by Andrea Bocelli–remember, everybody: this has become a time in history when we all have to sing louder. And forget the denominations: it’s Christ’s people vs. the antichrists. God has richly endowed us with enemies, we don’t have to fight each other.

And it would’ve been a shame not to put this on the Your Favorite Hymns list.

‘Are You Washed in the Blood?’

The lady said “Sing louder!”, so that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. Requested by Phoebe: Are You Washed in the Blood?, with an audience that’s up for it.

Well, we’d better be up for it: this is one of those times that try men’s souls.

‘End of Year Holiday?’ For Shame!

(Special thanks to Phoebe for requesting this carol just as I was about to write this post–she must have read my mind: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.)

Leftids have been trying to get rid of Christmas for years; and this year, their friend the COVID virus might provide them with the means to do it.

First, we’ve just been told there will be no Santa Claus at Macy’s in New York–for the first time in 159 years (https://deadline.com/2020/10/macys-no-santa-claus-at-stores-this-year-1234602271/).

Yesterday we learned a new word: “whisper-singing.” They’ll let you sing Christmas carols–but only if you keep your face mask on, and sing in a whisper.

And we learned a new term, too. Now liberals are speaking of Christmas not as Christmas, but as a super-generic “End of Year Holiday.”

Are we seeing a pattern here?

Well, it’s up to us whether we take this lying down. The alternative is to celebrate Christmas with all our hearts and dare the villains to arrest us–for having Christmas!

As I once heard a wise woman say on Christian radio: when things look bad.,.. sing louder!

By Request, ‘Rise Again’

Erlene requested this, so here it is–Rise Again, by Dallas Holm.

The wagon’s only half-full of Your Favorite Hymns, we use them up fast–so if you have a hymn or two, or half a dozen hymns, that you’d like to share, just let us know.

‘How Great Thou Art’

I grew up with this hymn. My mother and my aunts used to sing it as they did their housework. I like this rendition by Alan Jackson: How Great Thou Art. And remember, we’re always looking to add to the list of Your Favorite Hymns. If you’ve got a hymn or two, or half a dozen of them that you’d like to share, just let us know.

Pope Backs ‘Gay’ Civil Unions

What would a bad nooze day be without Pope Francis I tearing down a bit more of Catholic teaching?

In a newly-released documentary, the Pope stated his support for Church recognition of “civil unions” for homosexuals (https://www.wsj.com/articles/pope-francis-backs-civil-unions-for-gay-couples-in-shift-for-vatican-11603296578). As usual when the Pope gets theologically frisky, the Vatican Press Office had no comment.

Now just because he’s in favor of civil unions, the Pope said, doesn’t mean he’s backing same-sex “marriage.” I guess all he’s doing is giving unrepented sin a pass and ignoring Biblical prohibitions of sex outside of marriage–although the difference between a marriage and a civil union is unclear to most people who aren’t lawyers.

Asked about these prohibitions back in 2013, Francis said, “Who am I to judge?” (Hint: We thought he was the Pope.)

What? If the Pope can’t “judge,” then what’s his role in the Church? A cheerleader? But God has already judged this form of fornication and ruled it a sin. We don’t have to judge it. God’s word rules it out.

There has to be some way of being compassionate and kind to sinners without just waving away the fact of their sin and saying it’s all right, the Bible’s only a book or something, pay it no heed. Why should the sin of homosexual acting-out get a free pass? Why not some other sins, too?

I thought we were all sinners, and that’s why we need Jesus Christ, and His Church, in the first place. That’s why we need compassion. And forgiveness. Do we also need a “That’s okay”?

I have no idea what this pope is trying to do to his church.
