Roundup

This passage stopped me in my tracks the first time I read through the Bible. It explains so much. Atheists know that God exists. Yes, be charitable and share apologetic arguments with them along with the Bible, but do so with the confidence that deep down they know you are right, and remember that only God can make them spiritually alive. And be grateful that He made you spiritually alive and able to see his truth, because you and I would never have done so in our sinful flesh.

Romans 1:18–21 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened.

Children’s BMI doubled during pandemic: shocking CDC study — Yikes. Those kids have infinitesimal chances of dying from Covid, but the lockdowns have made a lot of them overweight, and probably for life. If only the elites would count the cost. They never suffer the consequences of their bad decisions.

When I was in kindergarten, my teacher looked like Barbara Bush, only she was even nicer. Truly iconic. But the teacher across the hall was gruff. We had a joint class one day, and the other teacher was trying to make the point that the sun was made of gas, so you couldn’t stand on it regardless of its temperature. She had apparently taught her class that. But every time she asked, “Why can’t you stand on the sun — but do not say it is because it is too hot,” some kid would eventually sheepishly answer, “Because it is too hot?” The teacher got madder and madder as she repeated the question and kept getting the same answer. Six-year old me knew enough to keep my mouth shut. I hope that in Heaven I’ll get to watch a replay of that.

All that to say that this video makes me think of her.

You can all yourself Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo for all I care. I’ll respect your name. But don’t demand that I lie and affirm your delusions of being another gender, or no gender, or whatever. I will not refer to you by the wrong pronoun. I won’t threaten your employment and social standing by forcing you to lie, so you shouldn’t do the same to others.

So You Married a Feminist — Some good advice. It is almost impossible not to have been tainted by the pervasiveness of feminism. Much of what passes for conservatism isn’t conserving biblical values, as it should, but conserving the Leftist thoughts of 10-20 years ago, on a rolling basis. So it feel like conservatism but is worldly. Example: See how many “evangelicals” have shifted to pro-gay positions. It isn’t like the Bible changed.

Men on strike: the social changes that caused men to opt out of marriage — Things have changed a lot, and even more rapidly in recent years. The deck is completely stacked in favor of women. They zoomed past “equality” long ago: False rape charges without consequences, no-fault divorce, paternity fraud that the legal system refuses to correct, anti-male bias in schools and the workplace, and more. Men need to be very, very careful. And feminist men are the worst, as they exacerbate the problems. They shoot the real men in the back, thinking that the feminists will reward them for it.

In each of those cases, the man was found liable to pay child support – including the case of the 15-year-old boy, who was forced to pay child support to his statutory rapist when he turned 18. This is how the court system works, and more and more men are understanding the risks.

LOL here’s a video called “Healthy Sermon Preparation” where Ed Litton tells you his secret for preparing sermons! I didn’t watch all of it, but I’m pretty sure he didn’t say, “Plagiarize, plagiarize, plagiarize!” What a fraud. Shocker: Comments are turned off. He does admit to how he “used to lie” about sermon prep time. He claims that he is creative. Indeed.

It’s not easy to consistently write a compelling message — week after week — in spite of everything else that’s going on. We spoke with Ed Litton, who has been a pastor at Redemption Church for 26 years, to learn his secrets for sustainable, dynamic preaching.

  1. I enjoy reading your site and commentaries and how you are able to cut to the heart of every issue.
    If you are interested in the traditional view of Romans 1 this is a good video by Dr. Leighton Flowers (a former Reformed Calvinist):

  2. Wanted to stop by to leave a comment supporting your position at the other site. After visiting the offending site I can say you are 100% correct and if anything reacted pretty mildly.

    1. Hi Cameron,

      Thanks, I appreciate that! I thought your comments there were spot-on, as well as your insights on other topics. I was half-tempted to go back to read follow-up comments but thought better of it. I hope the site owner (Jack?) reconsiders his approach.

      1. Jack owns the site. I think he is sincerely trying to help Christian men and deep dive into spiritual matters. I question the judgement but not the sincerity.
