A beautiful example of God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility joined together in two clear verses. You: Obey and work out your salvation. God: Works in you for his will. Paul and the Holy Spirit weren’t being incoherent when they wrote that. They understood the tension and spelled it out clearly. Just enjoy the truth!
Philippians 2:12–13 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.
Op-Ed: Is What the SBC Exec. Committee Apologized for Really ‘Nonconsensual Sexual Abuse’? C’mon, man, she was 26 when it started and carried it on until she was 38. Twelve years of “nonconsensual abuse,” even though she spent a lot of time with his family? And did I mention that this went on until she was 38? How old do women have to be before they take any responsibility for anything?! Yes, he was a creep who leveraged his position to sleep with her, but it seems feminists would be outraged that no one ever expects women to have any accountability.
Op-Ed: A Reminder, No Charismatic Prophets Prophecied Russia Invading Ukraine in February — Yep. They are all frauds, and those who follow them are devoid of discernment.
New 80-Page Report! Ravi Zacharias and RZIM Spent $1,000,000 Suing Abuse Victim — Good for outfits like Protestia and Pulpit & Pen. They get a lot of flack but are typically way ahead on calling out abuses and frauds.
New study: 1 in 8 divorces is caused by student loan debt — I’d quibble and say “influenced” instead of “caused,” but the point stands. The student loan process is a ridiculous racket that needs to be drastically overhauled. It has caused massive inflation in college costs because the colleges realized that they could keep increasing prices and kids would just borrow more. Remarkably few people question the economics of whether the loans would pay back. They borrow to go to big-name schools when the state schools and junior colleges get to use the same textbooks as the Ivy League schools (not to brag, but I went to a state school and outperformed nearly every Ivy League graduate on the CPA exam). Lenders and schools target people who have the least business savvy of all. And they lobbied the government to prevent the debts from being discharged via bankruptcy. That meant the lenders had no incentive to test the applicants as to whether they were likely to be able to pay off $100,000 of debt for their Lesbian Astrology degrees. So these people were suckered into starting off life in a deep financial hole. Worse yet, the colleges raised prices so they could offer a ridiculously high standard of living that most people can’t sustain when they get out. Other than that, it is a great system.
America is BACK: Brandon’s Big Plan for Stopping Russia From Invading Was to BEG CHINA TO PRESSURE RUSSIA; Instead of Helping Brandon, China Betrayed Him and Told Russia All About His Undignified Groveling — The only thing that makes this clown show worse is that the Left – and especially NeverTrump Inc. — are trying to pin all this on Trump.
The U.S. Left: Citizens of other countries need arms, but you don’t. Because we’d never confiscate your property just for disagreeing with us.
But but but Trump is a Russian agent . . .
Biden warned me that if I voted for Trump that terrible things could happen in Ukraine, and he was right.
Just in time for the State of the Union speech! What a coincidence.
Oh, and nothing like confiscating people’s bank accounts to prompt bank runs. Leftists never think 15 minutes into the future.
The buffoonish, hypocritical left is beyond parody.
Pro tip to single guys: Run away from women with an insatiable need for validation.
