Kristi Ann with John 3:16 (Christian Bloggers)

I continue my campaign of bringing increased exposure to Christian bloggers and their blogs. It doesn’t seem I have much to contribute, “but such as I have, give I thee.”

Kristi Ann’s Haven has a lot of Bible verses for us, starting with John 3:16… “For God so loved the world…”

Original Sin? ‘Hate Speech,’ Facebook Says

[Thanks to Susan for the news tip]

Love turns into hate when secular social media bigwigs encounter it.

Christian blogger Ginger Taylor was banned from Facebook for seven days for quoting St. Augustine on the central Christian doctrine of Original Sin–which the barbarians at Facebook decided was “hate speech” (https://adventuresinautism.blogspot.com/2019/07/i-am-blocked-from-facebook-for-seven.html?fbclid=IwAR1TaS2P2xWkhObKiPhy6bD-4b33XJwMMI02liFxJgEgzsmjhaZuv-OYOq0).

Uh, why do we need a Savior, if there’s no Original Sin? But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

This is “hate”?

Now, if we were able to save ourselves just being piling up good works and being nice guys, why would we need the Son of God? Why would the Word need to become flesh, be born into this world, live among us, and be crucified, dead, and buried? Why should Christ have needed to be atonement for our sins, if we can simply cleanse ourselves by works of the flesh?

This is the original Christian doctrine, this is the whole point of Christianity–and Facebook calls it “hate speech.” God’s sublime love for His creation–for us!–becomes, in their eyes, “hate.” Why? Because God knows what we are and loves us anyway, and knows how to sanctify us by His sovereign grace? Because He won’t give us participation trophies and “Good job!” refrigerator magnets?

And now let’s see if FB lets me post this…

Can You Buy Eternal Life?

See the source image

It’s the free gift of God to all who believe in Jesus Christ (John 3:16), but some of the world’s richest men don’t believe it. Instead, they’re looking to buy eternal life (https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/9194101/from-young-blood-transfusions-to-apocalypse-insurance-weird-ways-billionaires-are-trying-to-live-forever/).

The Star reports five of the most popular live-forever schemes. 1) Find a cure for aging. Lotsa luck with that. 2) Put a computer chip in your brain because “humans must become one with machines,” blah-blah. Prepare to merge with your toaster-oven. 3) Buy “apocalypse insurance.” Somebody needs to brush up on the Book of Revelation. 4) Get a lot of transfusions of “young blood”! Elizabeth Bathory tried that, but she died in 1614 after living in solitary confinement for five years. Today’s tech billionaires seek to improve upon her methods, which included serial murder. 5) “Digital consciousness,” meaning “upload your brain into a computer.” There’s a catch to it–your body dies.

Is this pathetic, or what? Do these people think they’re indispensable? (“I must be, or I wouldn’t have a billion dollars!”)

God help us if any of these tricks ever seems to work. Then every politician in the country will follow suit. Welcome to Year 700 of Listening to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Would you believe it? She’s still complaining!
