By Request, ‘He Is Jehovah’

Ah, a hymn request–He Is Jehovah, by The Gaithers, requested by Erlene.

So cold here today! But at least we managed to get Patty’s medicine yesterday…

‘A “Pastor” Who Hates Purity’ (2018)

See the source image

Where do they get these fly-by-night “pastors”? I can’t even imagine what they’re teaching in the seminaries these days.

A ‘Pastor’ Who Hates Purity

This one likes to melt down purity rings. She thinks purity is a bad thing. Someone handed her a certificate that says that she’s a pastor. Whoever did that ought to be whipped around the block.

I shoulda known, all those years ago now, when “Reverend Jill,” the new pastor of the church that I was raised in, warned me to beware of Bibliolatry–the error of taking the Bible seriously. She also thought it was nice when couples committing adultery together found time to go to church. “Welcoming and affirming”

 

‘Carol of the Bells’ (J&J)

I’ve found a brand-new piece by Joshua & Jeremy today–The Carol of the Bells (without bells–just guitars). Looks like it would be challenging to play.

I hope you don’t mind just a few more Christmas carols.

‘Blessed Assurance’

A classic Fanny Crosby hymn, sung by Alan Jackson–not a bad start to the day.

Truly miserable weather this morning. Pray harder. Sing louder.

Archdiocese of Milwaukee: No ‘Preferred Pronouns’ Allowed

Image

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has struck a blow for sanity, issuing a document that forbids the use of “preferred pronouns” that deny the actual biological sex of the speaker (https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/archdiocese-of-milwaukee-for-the-win/).

Which is to say, they’re rejecting the whole “transgender” scam.

The document, entitled Catechesis and Policy on Questions Concerning Gender Theory, asserts that use of these false pronouns, “intended as an act of charity, instead promotes an acceptance of the separability of biological sex and ‘gender’ and thus opposes the truth of our sexual unity.”

Honk if you can think of even one Far Left doctrine that doesn’t oppose the truth.

How is it an act of charity to accede to someone’s delusion?

Next–how many “devout Catholic” Democrat politicians are going to go ballistic over this? And how long will it take them to involve the, er, Justice Dept.?

And are you up to speed on Gender Theory? Sheesh, how did we ever get by without Gender Theory?

‘Ridiculous Laughter’ (godinterest blog)

Holy Laughter

Sarah thought it pretty ridiculous when God’s angel said she would have a child. She was years past child-bearing age.

Ridiculous Laughter

Well, we all know how that turned out, don’t we? “Has God ever surprised you with the ridiculous?” asks pastor Ray Patrick.

I try to make it a habit to showcase the work of other Christian bloggers. If you’d like some of your work to appear here, please let me know. Big Tech wants to shut us down, so we have to help each other.

‘Away With Our Sorrow and Care’

Here’s one I’d never heard before, a Charles Wesley classic–Away with Our Sorrow and Care, performed the old-fashioned way by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

We’re still sick here, still in need of prayers. I still can’t focus long enough to write a Newswithviews piece.

‘How Firm a Foundation’

Still sitting here groggy, still sick…

How about an old-fashioned hymn, done the old-fashioned way? How Firm a Foundation, by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band–yes, that’s the ticket.

‘Onward, Christian Soldiers’

The first time I tried to post this, I got a spirited rendition of Turkey in the Straw. It’s been that kind of day.

Ah, there it is–Onward, Christian Soldiers, performed by the kids at Fountainview Academy. Without a turkey.

‘A Modern Miracle’ (2016)

Ernest Shackleton

I hope you don’t mind if I run this post again. Patty and I have been sick since New Year’s and we need a miracle. We need you now, O Lord. In Jesus’ name, please heal us.

As World War I was breaking out, explorer Ernest Shackleton embarked on an expedition to cross Antarctica. Their ship came to grief, and it all came down to this: Shackleton and two others had to cross the ocean in a small boat, climb uncharted glaciers, and fetch help. Otherwise everybody dies.

A Modern Miracle

Read the rest; it isn’t long. A miracle described in the Bible recurred to save Shackleton.

How long would we last without the Lord’s protection?
