By Request, ‘When He Was on the Cross’

Requested by Erlene: When He Was on the Cross, by John Starnes.

People in the First Century were used to seeing horrific punishments, like crucifixion, carried out in public. We are not–and God be thanked for that. Speaking for myself, the cross is not an easy thing to think about. Nor should it be. O Lord our God, draw us to Jesus. Amen.


‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind me posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is a pretty dark world without the light of Jesus Christ!


Antidote! ‘I Know Who Holds Tomorrow’

Walking by sight and not by faith–that’s what we usually wind up doing, when we’re writing up the nooze–is a drag. If you think I enjoy covering “transgender” stories–don’t. Those are lost souls, and no amount of “affirming” their delusion is going to help them. They need to be affirmed in the love of Jesus Christ.

So thank you, Erlene, for administering the antidote–a hymn request. I Know Who Holds Tomorrow, by Carroll Roberson.

Ah, that’s better…


‘The Age of Davos Man’ (2016)

“Settled science,” once upon a time

Don’t you love it when an introllectural thinks he’s made up something new?

New, schmoo. These are the same “citizen of the world”-type schmendricks who used to infest the 1930s. We can’t seem to get rid of them. Confound it! Sometimes you really need a word like *******, and you just can’t use it on a Christian blog.

The whole world needs a giant flea collar.

More to the point, the world needs Jesus Christ–the only king whose right it is to rule.


By What Authority?

From the Unashamed of Jesus blog: Christ’s works bear witness to who He is.  –LD

Unashamed of Jesus

and began saying
to Him, “By what authority are You doing these things, or who gave You
this authority to do these things?” Mark 11:28

Who does Jesus think he is? This is what the Pharisees were
saying to him. Who do you think you are coming in here and questioning our
religious traditions! Who do you think you are clearing out all the money and
merchants from the Temple! Who do you think you are claiming you are The Son of
God!

The Pharisees were very angry with Jesus, because he turned
there world upside down, he challenged the purity of their hearts and integrity
of serving God. Jesus was changing the way the entire world was going to
worship God!

We challenge Jesus authority also, Jesus says to deny
yourself and carry your cross. Who do you think you are to tell me to deny
myself! Jesus tells…

Seminary Prez: Christ’s Resurrection Not ‘Necessary’

See the source image

Do they really make you trample on the Bible before they let you be a teacher or administrator at a seminary? Or does it only seem that way?

The president of Union Theological Seminary–that’s one of the biggies–says you don’t have to believe Christ rose from the dead, to be a Christian. Erick Erickson quotes her: “For Christians for whom the physical resurrection becomes a sort of obsession, that seems to me to be a pretty wobbly faith. What if tomorrow someone found the body of Jesus in the tomb?” [They won’t.] “Would that mean that Christianity was a lie?” (https://townhall.com/columnists/erickerickson/2019/04/26/flatearth-christianity-n2545394).

Let’s see if St. Paul can field that question.

Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: and if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised. And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. (1 Corinthians 15: 12-17)

If Christ is not raised then, yes–the whole New Testament is a lie. And if there’s no New Testament, there’s no Christianity.

Unless this seminary half-wit thinks there’s such a thing as a Christless Christianity, in which salvation comes not from Jesus Christ, but from Science, the state, left-wing politics, and NPR, etc. And Jesus was just a nice guy who got crucified because he was a union man. Or something.

How do sins get forgiven? By voting for Democrats? Who forgives them? Hillary Clinton? And who gets to say what’s a sin and what’s not? The Bible, or some left-wing fat-head in a seminary?

This is why the flatline Protestant churches are dying the death. I can’t find it in my heart to waste tears on them. Those who know their Savior, who know His voice and follow Him, don’t need those churches. Nor those seminaries.


‘Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee’

It’s cold and grey and rainy here, with a bit of thunder thrown in–so let’s have a hymn that makes its own sunshine–Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee. Turn up the volume and revel in it!

I don’t know who’s singing this, but thank you very much, whoever you are. And thank you, Beethoven, for composing this divine piece of music.


By Request, ‘I am the God that Healeth Thee’

Requested by Erlene–I am the God that Healeth Thee, by Don Moen.

We cannot count the people who were healed by Our Savior Jesus Christ, healed of every conceivable disease, while He was present in the flesh, on earth: and those healings were the evidence that God Himself had sent Him. They bore witness that He was the Son of God.

God has promised that when He restores His creation, in the fullness of time, sin and death will be cast out. There will be no need for any more healings, because we will all be whole, forever.

But in the meantime, all healing still comes from Him and we are instructed to pray for our loved ones, or for ourselves, when we need healing. God knows that we are weak; but He is strong. We pray in hope.


By Request, ‘Trust and Obey’

This is one of my favorite hymns, and thank you, Lisa Beth, for requesting it: Trust and Obey.

Our King is the rightful King of kings and Lord of lords. The others are nothing at all.


One More Time, ‘Up From the Grave He Arose’

I’m sorry, but I just can’t get enough of this hymn–Up From the Grave He Arose, sung by the Voice of Eden, from somewhere in India. Wow! We have family in India, and some of them can sing up a storm.

Christ’s resurrection changed the world. As the hymn tells us, “Death cannot keep his prey.” Jesus has broken its chains forever.
