‘Waiting for “the Righteous Candidate”‘ (2012)

See the source image

Granted, Mitt Romney was a lousy presidential candidate and he’s now a lousy senator. But in 2012 he was the only presidential candidate we had, if we didn’t want to re-elect *Batteries Not Included.

People who had been my friends for years dropped me, cut me off, for saying that the only way to get rid of Obama was to elect Romney: sitting it out, or throwing away our votes on third-party fringe candidates, was certainly not going to work. But they were waiting for “the righteous candidate” to come along.

Well, there’s only one righteous lord whose right it is to rule; and He is a King by right, a King of kings and Lord of lords, and He doesn’t have to run for any office. His name is Jesus Christ, the Son of God; and until He establishes His throne on earth, over all the earth, we as citizens are stuck with just having to do the best we can.

Which in 2012 meant getting rid of Obama; and in 2020 will mean keeping any Democrat out of the White House. Donald Trump is not the issue. Keeping the Democrats’ hands from around our country’s throat–that’s the issue.


What the Pope’s Game?

See the source image

Do something four times, and we’re justified in thinking you’re doing it on purpose–even if we don’t know why you’re doing it.

Pope Francis last week, according to a “long-time atheist friend” who interviewed him for his atheist publication, denied the bodily resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ (https://www.wnd.com/2019/11/4775784/), saying the risen Jesus was only “preserving the shadow of a person” and walking about “as the semblance of a spirit,” whatever that’s supposed to mean.

Behold my hands and my feet [Jesus said to His disciples], that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have. (Luke 24:39).

The Bible–and the Roman Catholic Church (and all proper Christians everywhere, for that matter)–plainly affirms that Jesus Christ was resurrected in the flesh. But the pope’s telling his atheist sidekick that no, it ain’t so.

Last month Pope Francis told this same, uh, “journalist” that Jesus Christ was just “a man of exceptional virtue,” and “not at all a God.” Last year, this same “journalist” quoted the pope as saying there is no Hell; and before that, in another “interview”–I put quotes around it because the Vatican keeps saying these are not real interviews, whatever they mean by that–the pope said the human race would go extinct: looks like Christ should have saved Himself the trouble of the cross, we’re still doomed.

Four times: the same interviewer; the same Vatican office disavowing the interview; and each time, no denial, no explanation, from the pope himself. Four times.

What’s he playing at? I mean, really–if you held a hugely important, responsible position in the world, would you go to be interviewed four times, over and over again, by some guy who kept putting damaging words in your mouth? Would you? Sheesh, he and Francis must be really good buddies!

Catholics need to start demanding their bishops explain to them what’s going on. Maybe a few hundred bishops en masse can pry out some kind of explanation from the pope.

Because whatever it is, it’s not Catholicism.

(Disclaimer: I’m not Catholic, but about half of my family is. My church is the fellowship of all believers in Jesus Christ as Son of God and Savior.)


By Request, an Encore: ‘Redeemed’

As more and more of this fallen world is harangued and lectured to by indoctrinated teenagers who know only what they’ve been “taught,” it’s a tonic to remember that we are redeemed–by Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

I’m sure I posted this a few days ago, but hey, we do encores here. And we need to hear hymns and psalms: it’s an antidote to culture-killing.

And so, requested by Joshua, here’s Redeemed, by Big Daddy Weave. With lyrics that are well worth reading.


By Request, ‘I Am Redeemed’

The nooze is just so flaming stupid today, so full of it, that I just can’t bring himself to cover it.

But here is an antidote!

Thanks to Phoebe for requesting this hymn, I Am Redeemed, by Big Daddy Weave–this is what we need to be reminded of. We are redeemed. We belong to Jesus Christ, and God the Father won’t let the crass follies and inanities of this fallen world wrest us from Christ’s hand.

(Note: There are other hymn requests in the queue, but don’t worry–I’ve got them written down, I’ll get to them.)


‘Christ Triumphant, Ever Reigning’

God knows it’s hard to be optimistic, striving toward things that can’t be seen as yet while the things that we do see are–well, you know what the world is like today.

So here, and we need it, is the Wells Cathedral Choir singing Christ Triumphant, Ever Reigning… His reign on earth began in a manger, and every day takes us closer to His glorious return.


The Science of… Loneliness?

Image result for images of loneliness

Can you take a pill that will cure loneliness?

Researchers at the University of Chicago Brain Dynamics Lab think they’ve found a hormone that may “reduce an exaggerated threat response similar to the kind of hyper vigilance lonely people feel” (https://nationalpost.com/health/all-the-lonely-people). It seems to work in mice–although how they can tell when a mouse is feeling lonely is more than I can say.

They got into this study because some of the researchers themselves were feeling lonely, they “felt their relationships seemed superficial and forced.” They say they are not trying to “cure loneliness with a pill.” What they are trying to do, well, search me.

In a fallen world, everybody has a time in life when they feel lonely, sad, unable to connect. You can feel that way even if you’re surrounded by other people. For most of us those times are something that passes. For a few, they don’t. Some continue to feel lonely even when family and friends who love them and care about them try to reach out to them: it doesn’t seem to help. I once had a friend like that, many years ago. We were toddlers together. But his life fell into a bad way, his family couldn’t help him, he seemed to lose interest in his real friends, and the story had a tragic conclusion.

We were young and didn’t understand or appreciate the power of prayer. It never even occurred to me at the time. I wish it had.

In a world stocked to the gills with false prophets, preposterous ideologies, rampant immorality and selfishness, lying as a means of communication, fake nooze and foolish public figures shouting doom and gloom, it’s a wonder there isn’t more loneliness.

God labors to preserve us in spite of ourselves. He sees something in us that a lot of us will never see–His own image, ransomed and saved by Jesus Christ.

“…And He shall win the battle.”   –Martin Luther

(Philippians 2:5-11 KJV ) “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ-Messiah Jesus-Yeshua: Who, being in the Form of GOD, thought it not robbery to be Equal with GOD: But made Himself of no reputation, and took upon HIM the Form of a Servant, and was Made in the Likeness of men: And being Found in fashion as a man, HE Humbled Himself, and became Obedient unto Death, even the Death of the Cross. Wherefore GOD also hath Highly Exalted HIM, and Given HIM a Name which is Above Every Name: That at the Name of Jesus every Knee should Bow, of things in Heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every Tongue should Confess that Jesus-Yeshua Christ-Messiah is LORD, to the Glory of GOD the FATHER.”!!

Rushdoony: ‘The Dark Ages Defined’

See the source image

The “Dark Ages”? Really?

R.J. Rushdoony wrote this timeless piece in 2001.

https://chalcedon.edu/magazine/the-dark-ages-defined

And what is the answer to the question he posed: If Christ is not our King, then how can He be our Savior?

Something to think about, indeed.


‘Gaudete’ (in July!)

Yes, I know this is a Christmas hymn, and I know it’s July; but when I hymn comes barreling into my head over supper, I take that as a sign that I ought to use it.

Gaudete means “rejoice”–rejoice in the birth of Jesus Christ our Savior, Jesus Christ our king. And there is no day in all the year when it’s wrong to do so.


Our Right to Hate

See the source image

If you can set aside the boiling hypocrisy of the most hate-filled, angry people in the world railing against “hate”–what? You couldn’t set it aside? Oh, well, neither can I.

C.S. Lewis wisely observed that the robber takes what he wants and then goes away, you’re done with him; but the utopian busybody is never done with you.

So we have government busybodies and Big Tech busybodies and corporate busybodies whose main idea seems to be, “You don’t have God because there is no God, but you do have us!” They don’t understand what a lousy trade-off that is.

The point is: These prating schmendricks have no right to tell us what we ought to be; they have no right to tell us we can’t hate.

Hate is natural to us. It’s a part of us. A person without any capacity for hate would be emotionally incomplete. Not only do Far Left fumblers have no right to stop us from hating: it’s also impossible. That’s where the hypocrisy comes in. All they have to do, to understand that it’s impossible to get rid of hate, is look in the mirror. Hey! If you hated anyone as maniacally as the Loving Left hates Donald Trump, your family would urge you to seek help.

Watch these anti-haters go full-ballistic if you dare to say anything against “gay marriage,” transgender, Climbit Change, Obama, or any other of their multitude of sacred cows.

“Yeahbut, yeahbut, Jesus never hated!” (people who hate Christianity advising us how to be Christians)

Oh, yeah? Revelation 2: 20-23–

“[T]hou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death…”

We see from His words to John that Our Lord Jesus Christ hates fornication and idolatry, hates for them to be brought into His church, and if those who do it don’t stop doing it, and repent… He will destroy them.

The difference between Jesus and ourselves is that He hates what certain people do, and what they stand for, while we drift over into hating those persons themselves–forgetting that God will forgive them if they stop doing those things. God will wash them clean.

Well, we can’t do that. If we could, we wouldn’t have needed a Savior and God wouldn’t have sent us one. He knows our frailties.

Remember–many people have surely put “love” to improper uses, but nobody on NPR talks about abolishing love. There are those who’ve been destroyed by what they’ve made of love. But love is part of our humanity and cannot be removed.

If the busybodies could actually worm their way into our minds and scrub out all the thoughts and emotions that they think we shouldn’t have, they would surely do it.

But God, who could have done it if He pleased, has too much love and respect for us to take away our free will.

For that you need liberals.
