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, 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.
(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.
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.
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.
