So many people get the “where two or three are gathered” part of this passage wrong. They think it means that Jesus shows up if two Christians are there. But does He leave the room if someone gets up to go to the bathroom? The passage is about church discipline, not prayer or anything else. It means that if you follow his instructions for church discipline, it is as if He is there. The system works, but most churches are too cowardly to do it. It honors him to believe what He said, and it is the best way to love your neighbors.

A former church did a spotless Matthew 18 process, and at a church meeting, they described how a woman was divorcing her husband unbiblically. If she didn’t repent, they would remove her from fellowship. The husband was in the meeting and seemed to appreciate the support. The wife wasn’t there. (We moved at that time, so we don’t know how it ended.)

They also did church discipline on a guy leaving his wife for unbiblical reasons. He became the worship leader at another church, even though the elders at our church warned them of his issues. The wife deeply appreciated how the elders stood by her and did the right thing.

At a Methodist church that we left for doctrinal and many other reasons, a guy had an emotional affair and was divorcing his wife for unbiblical reasons. The female associate pastor (one of the reasons to leave) heard about it but did and said nothing. And the guy had taught the youth for many years. There was zero church leadership involvement or discipline.

Matthew 18:15–20 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”

University Public Health Article Pushes To Cancel ‘Obesity,’ Says ‘Weight-Based Approaches’ Rooted In Racism — I’ve been to remote parts of Kenya 5 times on mission trips. There were surprisingly few fat people, and I can’t recall one truly obese person. They walked and worked a lot and ate healthier food. Some suffered from a lack of food. So no, it isn’t racist to say that obesity is unhealthy.

“Healthy at any size” is a vicious lie designed to virtue signal — or, for some women, to eliminate the competition. It is more like “high blood pressure at any size” or “Type II diabetes at any size.”

NFL and NBA Silent About Highly Questionable Spending by Black Lives Matter — Suckers.

BLM deceived the NFL and NBA. BLM is a business, not a movement. A shady one, at that. And yet, neither league will admit it. . . .

The two most influential sports brands in the country didn’t normalize a group protesting racism, they instead promulgated a Marxist, often violent, political organization which enriches themselves rather than helping the causes they pretend to champion.

Sports have not eased racial tensions. Rather, the leagues have assisted in the divide by spreading fear.

Sports have also helped lift a fraudulent organization to enough prominence that it can pay a baby daddy around $1 million. I just hope he gets a mansion out of the deal, too.

How the Biden administration Democrats used woke evangelicals to lie to churches — You expect those things from the “Christian” Leftists. It is their job as Satan’s Cabana Boys. But so many evangelicals are closeted — or not so closeted — Leftists.

In a now deleted essay, preserved by Web Archive, Stetzer chided, “If you want to believe that some secret lab created this as a biological weapon, and now everyone is covering that up, I can’t stop you.”

Isn’t that interesting how he deleted it? What a fraud. He should at least admit his mistake. It was obvious from day 1 that the most likely scenario was that it came from a virus lab in the town where the virus originated. Even if it had come from other sources, it was always wrong to mock and silence those who posited otherwise. Yet these wolves and demons want to be arbiters of misinformation?!

Only two days before Stetzer published his essay, Collins participated in a livestream event, co-hosted by CT. The outlet introduced him as a “follower of Jesus, who affirms the sanctity of human life” despite the fact that Collins is on record stating he does not definitively believe, as most pro-lifers do, that life begins at conception, and his tenure at NIH has been marked by extreme anti-life, pro-LGBT policies.

So Mr. Science Person doesn’t know what any mainstream embryology book (and common sense) will tell you, namely that a new human being is created at fertilization. What else would two human beings create? And he is pro-perversion and pro-Darwinian evolution. Don’t believe him or anyone who recommends him.

Another divorce (Lysa TerKeurst of Proverbs 31 ministries) part 2 redux — Even after this latest round of news, she still has 16 speaking dates over the next few months. I have no idea what her schedule was before. But she was a very attentive wife, I’m sure . . . because Proverbs 31 says you need a full travel and speaking schedule to be a great wife . . .

She was never called to ministry, but even if she had been, she needs to give it up now. A guy in her situation would certainly be disqualified. Do people who took her advice get refunds now?

People think they want fame, but it rarely benefits them in the long run (Homer Simpson: “Let’s just say that fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug was the drugs.”). And having a famous wife would make the odds of a successful marriage extremely low.

“Christian” Leftists sometimes call themselves “red-letter Christians,” meaning that they allegedly focus on the direct sayings of Jesus. But they out themselves in multiple ways when they do that.

First, the second set of “red letters” in the Bible tell you to live by all of the letters.

Matthew 4:4 But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Second, they deny the inspiration of scripture. All the original writings turned out exactly as the Holy Spirit and the human writers wanted them to, and they have been translated to us in a reliable fashion.

Third, they don’t understand and obey the red letters. Jesus quoted the Old Testament extensively and referred to its most controversial elements without apology: Sodom & Gomorrah, Adam and Eve, Noah, Jonah, etc. The “Christian” Left hates and denies all those things.

Fourth, Jesus didn’t hand-write the Gospels. The authors had some eyewitness accounts and some reliable second-hand accounts, just like the epistles.

Whatever this passage means, it can’t be about losing your salvation. Otherwise, it would mean that once you lose it you could never get it back. I’m on the “once really saved, always really saved” side and the “if you aren’t a Christian now then you never were” (1 John 2:19) side. I add “really” as a deliberate redundancy to emphasize that the conversion must be authentic. You can say a few words and hang out in church and not be truly saved (I know, because I used to be in that category).

So if the “you can lose your salvation” camp wants to cite Hebrews 6 (an admittedly challenging passage to exegete) then they should be consistent and say that once it is lost, it is gone for good.

Hebrews 6:4–6 For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt.

The Goodness of Their Hearts — Don’t be naive. Paying for your employees’ abortions is a cynical and evil form of corporate greed disguised as benevolence. They did the quick math and realized that abortions are less expensive than deliveries and maternity leave. But they are participating in the destruction of an innocent human being. But the Molech-worshipers are so eager to kill their children that they are blinded to it.

A number of major companies have announced that they will pay employees’ travel expenses if they want to travel to another state for an abortion. . . .Usually when companies adopt woke political positions, they are either engaging in pointless “virtue (usually vice) signaling” or knuckling under to youthful terrorists among their employees. But that may not be the case here. Paying for an abortion plus travel expenses is vastly cheaper than paying for the obstetric care and hospitalization associated with a birth, plus months of maternity leave. Viewed in strictly financial terms, helping to prevent employees from having children is good for the bottom line. But don’t expect liberals to take note of a rare instance of actual corporate greed.

Pro-abortion: Abortions are completely moral acts! They are not sinful.

Anti-abortion: Do you realize that you are telling everyone – including friends, any children and grandchildren you have, and yourself — that it would have been completely moral to crush and dismember them in the womb rather than letting them live? I pity the children and grandchildren who hear that message!

Seriously, picture someone saying this: “It is very important to Grandma that I fight for the right for mothers to be able to have their children killed. You are safe now, but I wanted your mother to have the right to kill you up to your first breath.”

Yes, I know no one would say it like that, but that’s exactly what their message is.

The “Christian” Left is just like King Jehoiakim. They metaphorically cut out and burn most of the Bible because the god they created doesn’t like it.

Jeremiah 36:23–27 As Jehudi read three or four columns, the king would cut them off with a knife and throw them into the fire in the fire pot, until the entire scroll was consumed in the fire that was in the fire pot. Yet neither the king nor any of his servants who heard all these words was afraid, nor did they tear their garments. Even when Elnathan and Delaiah and Gemariah urged the king not to burn the scroll, he would not listen to them. And the king commanded Jerahmeel the king’s son and Seraiah the son of Azriel and Shelemiah the son of Abdeel to seize Baruch the secretary and Jeremiah the prophet, but the Lord hid them. Now after the king had burned the scroll with the words that Baruch wrote at Jeremiah’s dictation, the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah . . .

They don’t want anything to get in the way of their cash flow.

Are you equipped to respond to pro-abortion arguments?

With Roe v Wade being back in the news, there is more talk than usual about abortion, and that will only increase from here.  Are you ready to respond to people graciously when they make bad pro-abortion arguments? It is easier than you think. Don’t miss this opportunity.

The arguments are varied, but the most common ones are easy to refute.  For example, they love to play on people’s emotions and pretend that we are hostile to rape victims if we don’t let them kill their children.  But just turn it around on them and ask, “So are you saying that you’d support making all abortions illegal except in the cases of rape?”  I guarantee you that the response will be “no.”  Then you simply say, “Then why are you exploiting rape victims to make your case for unrestricted abortions, and why do you support the Democrats’ policies of increasing abortions with taxpayer funding?”  it is just that easy.  Bonus points for reminding them how Planned Parenthood and other abortionists protect rapists and sex traffickers.

Using the “trot out the toddler” argument from Stand to Reason is useful in refuting nearly every pro-abortion argument. When the Left — including the “Christian” Left — makes excuses for being able to murder children in the womb, just give a parallel example with a toddler in place of the unborn. Would they approve of killing toddlers to help a woman’s education, career, sexual desires, freedom, etc.? They generally would say no (although they are getting more extreme by the day!). Since the unborn are human children, they deserve the same right to life.

And when you get the inevitable “pro-lifers don’t care about children after they are born argument,” share these points.

Here’s a similar version in text form. Feel free to copy and paste any of this without attribution.

Do you have any idea how much time and money I donate to help the poor or how much I pay in taxes?  [Pause]  Didn’t think so.  So why not stick to the topic, which is whether you should be able to crush and dismember children in the womb?  The “pro-lifers don’t care about those outside the womb/haven’t adopted all the children/etc.” canard is false on many levels. 
1. If people were slaughtering toddlers, the elderly or anyone else the way they do unborn children, I guarantee that we would be protesting that as well.  So we are completely consistent in protecting innocent human lives regardless of location and yes, we do care for life post-birth.
2. You can speak against moral evils all day, every day without being obligated to care for all the victims for life. If mothers were killing toddlers for the same reasons they give for abortions (money, career, love life, pressure from boyfriends/parents, etc.) would you stay quiet? Would you lodge the same criticism at those who spoke against toddler-cide without adopting all the children? Hopefully not. The question is whether the unborn are human beings. They are. At least that’s what all the embryology textbooks say. Just because they are smaller, more dependent, and in a unique environment (formerly synonymous with a safe place) doesn’t mean their lives aren’t worthy of protection.  The right to life is a foundational human right.
3. The premise is false.  Countless pro-lifers help women and children before and after birth with their own time and money.  Pregnancy Resource Centers offer an array of free services. Planned Parenthood and the like make millions via abortion.
4. Asking the government to take money by force from others to supposedly help the poor does not qualify as charity on your part.
5. Do you criticize the American Cancer Society for not working on heart disease?  If not, why are you being prideful about your preferred ministry over what others feel called to?  That is, if you actually do anything for others at all.  Using your logic, William Wilberforce didn’t do much because he “only” cared about abolishing the slave trade (not true, of course, as he did more than that, but it shows how ridiculous the pro-abortion argument is).
6. Unless they want forced abortions, pro-choicers have the same obligations to help that they put on pro-lifers.
7. The claim that we don’t care about the children outside the womb is demonstrably false.  But even if their claim was true, it seems like the greater sin would be to approve of a child being literally crushed and dismembered rather than just not personally feeding someone else’s living child.
8. Imagine saying something similar to justify keeping slavery legal: “You think slavery is wrong but won’t help them get jobs, etc.”
9. Your basic reasoning is this: “It is OK to kill the child but not to risk her being impoverished.”
10. IF you actually help them outside the womb, we could swap labels and dismiss you: “You only help them outside but let them be killed inside.” Still illogical, but that’s what you get.

Or you can use my short version: We are completely consistent on this topic, as we oppose crushing and dismembering children inside or outside the womb. If you were killing your toddlers as well, we’d also oppose that.

I like that response because it is brief and it spells out what abortion does.

This is a video where I teach about pro-life reasoning.  I used to give this content to Care Net Pregnancy Center volunteers.

On Roe v Wade . . .

Updates at the bottom

That’s huge news about Roe v Wade if it is true that the case will be overturned. Hopefully, they will find and jail whoever leaked the information, but it is good that it came out earlier versus later. The pro-aborts would lose their minds whenever it happened, and the farther from the elections, the better.

The Molech-worshiping ghouls are gnashing their teeth already because it may be slightly harder to kill their children in some states. They don’t realize that in most states, they’ll still be able to kill their children up to their first breath and without even giving the kids an anesthetic.

Make no mistake: While many states will still have unrestricted abortions, countless lives will be saved, and people will think differently about sex. And that matters. And yes, many organizations will offer to transport women to Leftist states to kill their children, and many companies will do the Molech-math and decide that killing children saves money compared to delivering and insuring them. But the “if legal, then moral” calculus used by many will be upended, and there will definitely be fewer children murdered overall.

And who do we have to thank? Donald Trump! Not Bush. Not all the Republican congresses we’ve had. Yet all the faux-lifers still hate Trump with the heat of a thousand suns, even though he’s been out of office for over a year. A belated thank-you to Justice Ginsburg, a true Molech-worshiping ghoul, for “retiring” when she did.

And the faux-lifers are already out in force. This is such an easy way to spot them. If they cared about child murder, they’d cheer this news. Yet here were are. Example: SBC Prof. KSP Says Having Roe. v Wade Overturned Wasn’t Worth Having Trump as President.

Another example: Kyle J. Howard is ‘Triggered’ by SC Ruling Because White People ‘Sacrificed Black People’s Joy and Flourising’ To Attain it — Abortions kill black children at a rate more than three times that of whites, yet Howard and the other “pro-life” and “anti-racist” “Christian” Leftists are having a sads today. Rachel Held Evans would be proud of people like this.

It is so creepy that Leftists teach their children that it would have been morally permissible to kill them as they were being delivered.

Even if Roe is overturned, the work is not over. We need abolitionist laws, just as with slavery. And abortion is worse than slavery.

Please pray that this is true and that the pro-life judges won’t be intimidated by the death threats and such from the loving, tolerant Left – including the “Christian” Left. And pray that this boomerangs on the Molech-worshipers politically.

Since abortion will be in the news, it is a great time to brush up on your pro-life reasoning! Use this as a time to correct people on all the fallacious sound bites used to support child murder. For starters, when they say, “A woman’s right to choose,” ask them to finish the sentence: A woman’s right to choose to kill her child.” And when they mention reproductive health, point out that every abortion kills a child who has already been reproduced. They are using anti-science arguments. Also, see Abort73.com, a terrific anti-abortion site.

Biden gets philosophical about aborting ‘a child’ — I’m glad he admitted that abortion kills children. That’s the language I always use. I know what people mean when they say “baby,” but I prefer the precision of “child.” Pro-aborts balk at that, but then I just refer them to the nice folks at Dictionary.com*. He’s wrong about the “major religions” bit, though. Even the non-religious Hippocratic Oath was explicitly anti-abortion for over 2,000 years until the pro-aborts took over the medical community a few decades ago. And Christianity has always opposed abortions until the “Christian” Left started worshiping Molech in the 70s. And you better believe that Muslims aren’t pro-aborts.

And it shows Paul’s boldness in confronting a false teacher. We don’t always have to use that style, but we shouldn’t be wimps about calling out wolves. Be clear and bold.

Acts 13:9–10 But Saul, who was also called Paul, filled with the Holy Spirit, looked intently at him and said, “You son of the devil, you enemy of all righteousness, full of all deceit and villainy, will you not stop making crooked the straight paths of the Lord?”

SALTY: Cry Babies Throw Out Their Toys Over Musk Twitter Buy – The Twitter thing has been fascinating to watch. He is driving the snowflakes mad, and he’s not even a conservative! He’s more of a traditional liberal who actually believes in the free market of ideas, unlike the Commies who must silence and destroy those with different thoughts. Yet Musk has done more for free speech than Republicans have in decades.

Do any of these foolish children realize how easy it is to block people on Twitter? Why are they so scared that others might engage in conversations in which they aren’t required to be a part of?

Dear Corporations: This ‘Pride Month,’ LEAVE US ALONE — Yep. “Pride month” is a perfect example of the cowardice of normal people. The behaviors are shameful and God-mocking, and encouraging and affirming these people is a serious sin – and especially so when you market them to children.  We’re going to need a lot of millstones to clean this place up.

Romans 1:26–27 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Romans 1:32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.

Some Christians will be quick to point out that the Bible is full of sex and violence. And indeed it is. But there is a world of difference between sin described honestly on a page, never with the intent to stimulate or amuse, and sin depicted on the screen with multi-million dollar budgets, real nudity, and realistic gore.

Workers are unhappy to be back in the office, and now they’re getting ready to quit — The entire accounting team (and more) at the company where I work has been thrilled to work from home. I had already been doing it for years and loved it. The big city commutes were wearing me out. That said, I am close to retirement, so I’m not gunning for any promotions. But we’ve still promoted people even though they didn’t have an office presence. People value the extra time and lower stress and costs. We have a big plant, so even if you are there you’d still communicate largely via phone and email. The key is managing people well – especially low performers – with specific deliverables. We offer work-at-home as a huge benefit, but if they don’t deliver well, then it goes away.

Don’t let people play the phony card of not letting your religion inform your politics. Politics matter, and being informed and involved is in line with being a Christian.

Feminists Pushed The Sexual Revolution To End America, And It’s Working — I’d say it worked all too well. But that doesn’t mean we don’t keep fighting it.

These Leftists don’t hurt me directly, but if I love my neighbors in the womb, for example, I’ll fight to keep them from being crushed and dismembered.

“By destroying the American family!” they answered.

“How do we destroy the family?” she came back.

“By destroying the American patriarch,” they cried exuberantly.

“And how do we destroy the American patriarch?” she probed.

“By taking away his power!”

“How do we do that?”

“By destroying monogamy!” they shouted.

“How can we destroy monogamy?”

“By promoting promiscuity, eroticism, prostitution, abortion, and homosexuality!” they resounded.

I’ve found 19:11 (the Proverb, not the gun) helpful in many situations.

Proverbs 19:11 Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

The first part is what most would expect from a Proverb, but the second has an interesting twist. It is to your glory to overlook offenses, and you can remind yourself of that. It is like a little reward for not reacting strongly.

It won’t work well for major infractions, but it is been very helpful for traffic annoyances, difficult co-workers, etc. It often disarms people who are trying to get under your skin.

Seattle’s transit system struggles as riders refuse to pay — Fixed it: People of color were getting disproportionately fined because people of color were disproportionately stealing.

Sex and the Schools, or, An Essay You Don’t Want to Read — Don’t kid yourself and believe it isn’t happening in your district. Even if the district isn’t actively pushing this garbage, the younger teachers have been fully indoctrinated and will sneak it in. Sending kids to government schools gives them the implicit and explicit message that they should believe the school officials – even when the teachers say not to tell you something and that you, as parents, are wrong!

In Williamson County, Tennessee, one of the wealthiest and most Republican school districts in the Volunteer state, kindergarteners were given IPads loaded with the book, The GayBCs to help them learn how to read. These five-year-olds learned that B for Bi, C is for Coming Out, D is for Drag, I is for Intersex, N is for Nonbinary, T is for Trans, and so on. The recommended age range for readers of The GayBCs is 4 to 8. That this book is pure CGT propaganda is obvious simply from the fact that the words used in the book are age inappropriate not simply because of the words’ meaning but also because of their difficulty.

When people suppress the truth of God in unrighteousness and don’t honor him or give thanks to him, he gives them over to bad things.  He didn’t give them over to square dancing, but to things like homosexual behavior, the utter denial of God’s created order.   It is unloving and sinful to pretend that he approves of their desires and to affirm those living by those delusions. 

Romans 1:26–27 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Biden Family Corruption Update for April 7, 2022 « Lawrence Person’s BattleSwarm Blog — The media is now trying the pathetic approach of “Yeah, but it wouldn’t have impacted the election anyway, so it is no big deal that we actively covered up the story in 2020.” In a way, they are right, because the Dems would have just manufactured more fake votes for Biden. Those “journalists” should be fired and then jailed.

Now that the Hunter Biden dam has finally burst for the MSM, we’re finally getting the “Hey, the Biden family sure seems to be involved in a lot of shady business deals” stories we should have gotten well before the 2020 election if the media weren’t so in the tank for Democrats.

Why the left really wants to sexualize your kids. — Many school districts have few children who can read or write and have no marketable skills, but the Left wants to make sure they hate others (if they are black) or hate themselves (if they are white), and above all, to follow every sexual perversion the Left dreams up and not to tell their parents.  And we pay for all this with our taxes. Get your kids out of government schools and away from these groomers, and vote for real conservatives to be on your school boards.

A nice one-two punch was developed. Kids learn key concepts of Critical Race Theory, which encourage them to hate themselves and their peers because their skin color makes them complicit in systemic oppression. The kids who are marginalizing others with their mere existence are then offered the opportunity to pick new, safe identities from a batch of made-up genders and sexualities. They’re encouraged to hide this from their parents, whose bigotry won’t allow them to understand.
