Our pastor highlighted this at the end of his sermon on Sunday: Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.  I love the juxtaposition of how the God of peace will crush Satan (i.e., Satan won’t think He is peaceful!).  Then  we are reminded of the grace of Jesus being with us.


Friendly reminder: If you aren’t reading the Bible regularly (or listening to it), it is because you have decided not to.


Apparently the SJWs have been wildly overreacting about everything they preach about (who knew?!) and are now having a major case of the sads because of the real issues of the Chinese virus, as they aren’t getting their normal attention.   It turns out, for example, that rushing through a “trans” surgery isn’t quite the emergency people were saying it was.  And maybe all those gender-neutral bathrooms weren’t as important as they said.  Same thing for all of their other phony and/or self-inflicted problems, such as equal pay for women (which was already equal for the same jobs and skills).

This may be one of the good things coming out of this crisis.  Just ignore those silly narcissists and focus on what is truly important.  Going into debt for Womyn’s Studies (or any other degree ending in “Studies”) was always stupid.  It was only the results of living in a magnificently blessed first world culture that people could even make up silly issues like the SJWs did.

But they should be really happy about their “safe spaces,” since no one should be within 6 ft. of them now.


It’s not just CNN: Media outlets keep leaving out that the Arizona man died after eating fish tank cleaner — Fools ingest fish tank cleaner and die.  Media leaves that part out to try to harm Trump.  But you can totally trust them on everything else.  Even Fox “forgot” to mention that in the title of the article.

And of course Biden knowingly lies (OK, he’s clueless, but his team knowingly lied) to foster more fear in the midst of a pandemic just to harm Trump.  These people are sick. WaPo: Four Pinocchios for Team Biden’s “Trump silenced CDC official!” accusation


Wuhan Virus Encroaches on Gay Lifestyle — Gross, but important to share, because gays do these disgusting things so reflexively that the government spends your tax money having to tell them not to.

As the bureaucrats warn,  “Rimming (mouth on anus) might spread COVID-19. Virus in feces may enter your mouth.”

Seems like getting the Wuhon Virus would be preferable to whatever that behavior could do to you.


Democrats are letting prisoners out because of the virus and police won’t respond to some crimes.  Oh, and the Dems still don’t want you to own guns.  What could go wrong?


In China, critics of the government’s handling of the coronavirus crisis simply disappear — Just like in the U.S.!  Except not at all like the U.S.  If only the Leftists would acknowledge how much freedom of speech they have and would quit repeating Chinese propaganda.


New York Health Officials Told Residents to Congregate in Huge Crowds in “Defiance” of Coronavirus — Political correctness and virtue signaling are deadly, chapter 897.  But but but it is all Trump’s fault!


ChiComs Are Culpable; Media/Democrats Side With Them — The America-hating Left is setting us up for the next virus as well.  If we can’t acknowledge the root cause and corrective actions of this one it will just happen again.

Chinese wet markets, where exotic animals are butchered and sold under unhygienic conditions, caused SARS and now the Wuhan virus. The government is totalitarian, yet has permitted these breeding grounds for viruses, even while cracking down on trivial thought crimes. The communist rulers helped the virus spread by suppressing information, lying that it could not be transmitted between humans, and destroying samples and research that confirmed the seriousness of the disease. Those who tried to raise the alarm in the early stages were silenced by the police state. This cost the rest of the world 2 months, which could have been used to avert the massive crisis that is currently unfolding.


The Democrats held up the recovery bill to add things like abortions, corporate board diversity, airline emissions and $10,000 payoffs of college debt.   Because taxpayers need to pay to kill more children and to subsidize the debauchery and bad financial decisions of others.  The Republican ads write themselves.


Dems: Trump is Hitler!

Dems: Trump is incompetent!

Also Dems: Let Trump nationalize the supply chain and control it all!

They obviously just want that precedent set in case they ever take power again.


NYT visualization: How the Chinese government enabled the spread of coronavirus — Glad to see the NYT told the truth (albeit with a wimpy headline).  China is the cause of the great financial and deadly catastrophe in history, yet they and the Democrats are working 24×7 to blame Trump.  Sickening.

Still a great day to be a Christian!  Hope you are all well.  What are you doing to stay busy?  Gorgeous day yesterday – was able to sit on the porch, play a little guitar, talk to passing neighbors without getting too close, read, etc.  Trying to keep a normal routine of Bible reading, Bible verse memorization, working out, etc.  We were able to go to our ballroom dance studio to practice, which was nice (group lessons are canceled and we stopped private lessons for now, but we had the entire upstairs floor to ourselves — 100x safer than the grocery store!).

Hopefully your church is streaming your services, but if not, you can join us here at 10:45 AM or 6:00 PM (EST) — https://christcovenant.org/


Aaaaaaand . . . political correctness and virtue signaling are still deadly.  Yet that’s what the Dems are doing here.


Ohio halts “nonessential” abortions during COVID-19 crisis — Sort of.  The Molech-worshiping ghouls of Planned Parenthood et al will continue to find loopholes to kill children.  After all, they say that child-murder is essential – especially when we are trying to save lives from this virus, or something.


Biden plans to come out and second guess Trump every day.  Hopefully people will recognize that for the shameless attention getting politics that it is, and it will backfire like most of the other Trump-hating strategies of these deranged people.


Regulations kills jobs.  The real minimum wage is always zero.  California killed freelance.  The Leftists keep telling themselves that they are helping workers, but they always make things worse.   They do it because they are controlled by unions.

 


Madness: Teachers Accuse NYC Schools of Covering Up Chinese Coronavirus Threat — Yikes.  And yet another reason to get out of government schools.  You can see how much they care about the students.  Oh, and they are all Democrats, all the time.

The information freeze started March 10, when Carranza, in an email obtained by The Post, told administrators not to alert city health officials about COVID-19 cases among students or staff.
“At the moment, there is no reason for any school to call [the Health Department] to report potential or confirmed cases,” Carranza wrote, repeating the statement later in the same email. . . .
At several campuses and DOE offices citywide, multiple staffers have tested positive but affected buildings remained open while workers, students and parents were kept in the dark, whistleblowers said.
At the Grand Street campus in Williamsburg, which houses three high schools, a teacher returned from a trip to China over the February break. Despite reports of the outbreak, the teacher did not self-quarantine, but returned to teach kids in all three schools Feb. 26 through Feb. 29, a staffer said.
The teacher then became sick and stopped working. The school was not closed, and employees were not notified, insiders said.
Up to four other staffers have since become sick, they said.

This is sheer madness. Why would a teacher travel to China at a time when this dangerous virus outbreak was going on there? I mean, Trump shut off incoming flights from China on Feb. 3, and yet this Brooklyn teacher went to China nearly three weeks later, and taught for four days before falling ill? And then — to add insult to injury — the city’s department of education suppressed the information about this COVID-19 case? This is criminal negligence. Hell, it’s nearly manslaughter!


Eugene Gu: a history of abuse behind the social justice personality — So the Trump-hating “doctor” (no longer licensed) is just a creepy fraud?  No wonder the Left quotes him so reflexively.  Among other things, he Tweeted from a fake female account to attack others and make himself look more prominent.  What a pathetic SJW.

Before I spoke to Allison, I had noticed unsettling tweets from Mary Laury’s profile, too. I was writing a profile on Gu, and I’d been trying to get in touch with some of his critics. Though I agreed with Gu’s left-leaning political views, it was clear most media coverage of him was very one-sided: they only told Gu’s story, the one that made him out to be a victim and hero. I tweeted at an especially ardent critic, the (now deleted) @NefariousMD, asking for his perspective on Gu. @NefariousMD often posted screenshots of an unsettling piece of Gu’s past: a series of arrest citations, including filed restraining orders and allegations of domestic violence. I’d come across the allegations early in my research, and asked Gu about it in our interviews. . . .

Allison had told me that she hadn’t wanted to go public with what happened between her and Gu: he was supporting good causes, and she didn’t want to take anything away from that. But discovering the Mary Laury account pushed her over the edge. In July 2017, she tweeted: “I’m freaking out now knowing my ex boyfriend was tormenting me with a fake female account. Sending me DMs obsessing over him, asking intimate details about my sex life, and then trying to convince me they slept together. I’m going to be sick.” She described a man obsessed with his Twitter following, a date that turned into something resembling sexual assault: “He is on top of me, groping me, trying to kiss me as I keep trying to get up and telling him no. Moving my face away from his kisses. He kept saying he wanted to have unprotected sex so he could get me pregnant so I could never leave him. I continued to fight him off until eventually he tired himself out and passed out.”


Calling it the Wuhon or Chinese Coronavirus wasn’t racist or xenophobic at all, until Trump said it.

Good prayer I came across . . .

Prayer for a Pandemic

May we who are merely inconvenienced remember those whose lives are at stake.

May we who have no risk factors remember those most vulnerable.

May we who have the luxury of working from home remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.

May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close remember those who have no options.

May we who have to cancel our trips remember those who have no safe place to go.

May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market remember those who have no margin at all.

May we who settle in for a quarantine at home remember those who have no home.

As fear grips our country, let us choose love.

During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be loving embrace of God to our neighbors.

Amen

Why Media Does Not Call It “Wuhan Virus” — Because they hate Trump and America.

First, the Wuhan Coronavirus originated in Wuhan, China. Second, the Chinese Communist Party not only ignored but completely covered up the disease for as long as they could, allowing it to not only spread among its own people but to countries around the world. Third, diseases are regularly named after the area (like Ebola), city (like Lyme Disease), or region/nation (like Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) of their origin.

However, No American who has ever heard of West Nile Virus, German Measles, Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever, St. Louis Encephalitis, or Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever believes the phrase “Chinese Virus” is racist or xenophobic. The World Health Organization even acknowledged the reason they came up with the clunky, manufactured name “COVID-19” was to prevent the stigma from touching China.

Bonus: The media called it the Chinese/Wuhon virus before
Trump did.  Because consistency.

Also this: ‘Not as long as I’m president’: Trump tells reporter pursuing ‘racism’ angle why he refers to COVID19 as the ‘Chinese virus’.  I love it.

Oh, and this: SCREENSHOTS: Chinese state media used to call it ‘Wuhan virus’ but now that’s racist?  Those racist Chinese, always being racist against the Chinese!


Great video on the Left’s perversion of the world tolerance.  You can only tolerate what you disagree with.  We should tolerate people, not ideas.  They do neither.  They immediately go to name-calling and “canceling” other people (e.g., trying to destroy their reputations and/or take their jobs away).


Remember that Andrew Gillum was nearly governor of Florida and he was being considered as a VP pick for Biden.  Married father of three, rising Democrat star, caught in meth-fueled orgy with gay escort in a hotel room.  You think the media would have ignored this it he was a white Republican?

WaPo: Biden wasn’t “lying.” He just “described his stance inaccurately.”

A Washington Post fact-checker ruled Thursday that Joe Biden hadn’t lied when he said he supported a fracking ban during Sunday’s Democratic presidential debate. Rather, Biden had simply “described his fracking stance inaccurately.”

The Post gave Biden “Zero Pinocchios” for saying during the most recent Democratic debate that he opposed fracking entirely. Instead, the paper pointed to the Biden campaign’s explanation that the candidate had “misspoken” and that “his position was the same as ever,” opposing fracking only on public lands.Meanwhile, the Post criticized those who quoted Biden’s remarks verbatim.


What a sad little snowflake.  He actually called the police because the polite Prager U people were sharing ideas that “terrorized” him.  Yet he couldn’t name one thing wrong with the ideas.  Too many years of Leftist indoctrination for that kid!

This is an outstanding video about Christian apologetics.  It shows how evidential arguments can be helpful, but that they have significant limits.  The non-believers have lots of “rescue devices,” but there is a line of arguments they can’t refute but only sidestep.  Don’t follow the “neutral ground” space where you abandon the Bible.  Sadly, many apologists do that.  There is no neutral ground.   And both sides have presuppositions they should acknowledge.  But if God’s word is infallible – and it is! — then why would we ever give that up?! The laws of logic, the uniformity of the world and universal moral laws can’t be grounded by atheism, but only by biblical Christianity.

MacDonald then addressed the crowd, telling them that he had pastored a “wonderful church in Chicago,” but adding: “God has seen it to be fit to allow us to be separated from the church that we loved for our whole lifetime. And it has been a real crucible of suffering for us.

”Neither MacDonald nor Gill told the congregation that MacDonald’s former church, Harvest Bible Chapel, had disqualified MacDonald from public ministry for a “substantial pattern of sinful behavior.” They also did not mention that an audit conducted by Harvest found that MacDonald had misused millions in church funds “for improper financial benefit.”


‘Our media is broken’: NYT firefighters team up to feed bogus narrative deliberately mischaracterizing Donald Trump’s COVID19 response — Just another reason to never trust the media – especially the NT times.  They tweeted the part of Trump’s comments in bold and left out the rest.  Why?  To make Trump look mean and evil.  So he was just giving practical advice, and the deliberately made it look like he was being flippant and callous.  So we are in the middle of a national emergency / pandemic and their first priority is to make him look back by omitting the context of his words?!  Such fake news.

Just finished reading The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson, which covered Churchill’s first year as Prime Minister.  Great book!  And a good lesson: Those people learned to live with the risks of being bombed day after day.  Of course they didn’t like it, but they adapted to their new risks.  Our problem today is that we live with countless risks but let the media and others tell us when to freak out over new ones.


British woman sues medical center for allowing her to “transition” her gender — I hope that many sue these ghouls into oblivion for destroying their lives when they were foolish children.  They should sue their parents as well if they were complicit.  Maybe a few bankruptcies would cut down on this wicked virtue-signaling.

That should be grounds for divorce, as the marriage was entered into under false pretenses and the wife is abandoning the relationship.

I’ll wait for the article showing all the great things that happen when men withhold finances, protection, yard work, etc. in exchange for sex.

I noted on a Lakers blog that border control is crucial, and loads of dim-witted Leftists tried to mock me by saying the virus came through planes and boats.  Apparently they didn’t realize that we have land AND water borders.   And they are so wedded to their open borders vote-buying insanity that they have to pretend that letting people pour in from Mexico doesn’t risk our health at all.

Hunter Biden scandals explained: Ukraine, China, drug history and more — He and his father are as crooked as can be.  Joe deceptively tries to shift the focus to his son by saying, “No one has said my son has done anything wrong,” but the real issue is what Joe has done wrong.   Also this: Biden campaign touts Ukrainian anti-corruption activist who previously called Hunter Biden’s actions ‘very bad’.

The Dems are counting on the media to cover this up.


Staggering that the media is this stupid.  Note that both of them were off by a factor of one million.  And it wasn’t some side comment.  They had others involved to copy the original Twitter comment and show it on the screen.

This is a great lesson for all the covetous Democrats out there: Even if you kill all the billionaires and distribute the money (which you’d only get to do once), then each person would still get very little. So *maybe* the billionaires aren’t the source of all your problems and fleecing them won’t impact your life that much . . .

“Let’s get to the root of the issue here,” Cotton told “America’s Newsroom.” “Chuck Schumer and the Democrats filibustered legislation that would prevent infanticide of a young baby that survives an abortion, prevent late-term abortion of infants that can feel pain in their mother’s womb. These are depraved practices that no civilized society should permit, yet, the Democrats are so radical on abortion that they’d filibuster those bills in lockstep. That’s the real issue at stake here.”

Bloomberg Explains Why He Gets to Have Guns, Not You — The only thing worse than his cartoonish hypocrisy (he has greater risks than you, so yours aren’t worth defending against!) is that so many Leftists are fine with his “logic.”


I watched one of Trump’s rallies for the first time (well, most of it).  Wow.  Stronger pro-life message than I’ve heard any other Republican candidate make.  So many great things – the judges, border control, low unemployment, criminal justice reform, ending sanctuary cities, recognizing Israel, better trade deals, better military, real VA reform and improvements, lower poverty rates, and so much more.  And shouldn’t the Left be cheering that Trump hasn’t started any wars and is winding down nearly 20 years of our presence in Afghanistan?

I think Trump’s “promises made / promises kept” slogan is perfect.  That should really resonate with the middle ground who are so used to politicians lying.

The “never Trumpers” who are supporting the Democrats should be dismissed forever.

He’s so polished and practiced at these things now and is obviously just having a great time.  I think the debates will be very interesting this year.

This is who the Dems  and their wholly-owned media are working overtime to be their nominee, including buying off / threatening Buttisex and Klobuchar to drop out just before Super Tuesday when they had already spent money on their campaigns (don’t those donors feel stupid now!).  Normally I ignore slips of the tongue (the more we talk, the  more likely those are, and politicians talk a lot).  But this guy is out of control.  That said, I think his gaffes are already factored in.  It won’t sway voters.  Only focus on his corruption and terrible political views.

In this meeting I was told I was lying or mis-remembering every bit of what I reported. I was told the comments about my body and my clothes weren’t inappropriate since I had already shared in my testimony that I wasn’t wearing anything provocative. I was told the grooming patterns, boundary testing and secrecy building of ‘delete’ email conversations and him frequently affirming the most broken parts of my story growing up were me “being dramatic”. I was told the numerous inappropriate invitations I had declined, to be alone with him (in inappropriate settings) were his attempt to be available to pastor and mentor me. I was told that him meeting me outside on the very day I went to the church to document my grievances with HR, after being asked by his colleagues for real time updates about my arrival time, was “a coincidence”. I was told if they wanted to, they could make it look like I was pursuing him. Although not one person who could confirm any of my accounts was ever contacted, I was told that none of them were true. I was told I needed to know I was the only woman in 42 years to ever say he was inappropriate with me.I was then asked for confidentiality about my experiences, which I refused. The word devastated doesn’t begin to describe how I left that meeting. I resigned from my position and spent weeks just trying to make it through the day. The most painful part wasn’t even his behavior- rather that the church leaders whom I loved and respected and served with, didn’t believe me and failed to protect me. I have wrestled with God about my calling to serve the church almost every day since.

Constantine beefed up the palace bureaucracy. He created a set of powerful officials who were directly responsible to him. They were new and more specialized administrators with new bureaus to run. There was an even a new corps, staffed by legionaries, to carry confidential messages between the center and the provinces. All this consolidation and centralization made government more efficient but not more pure. All those administrators expected “tips,” to put it mildly. In fact, the bigger Roman government grew, the more corruption became a problem. Constantine understood that exchanging gifts and favors in return for services was no small part of government. So, in order to forge ties with powerful people in the provinces, he created new titles and distinctions and even, as mentioned, a new Senate for Constantinople. He was also lavish in his generosity to individuals and cities. This was good for politics but not for the Treasury. As a result, taxes went up.

Venezuelan describes daily life in his country: ‘My Socialism Nightmare’ — Is there a political party in the U.S. that is anti-police?  Asking for a friend.

It’s not just the health system that has collapsed, it’s also the police. “No one ever is going to invest in Venezuela if there is no police,” he explained. “If you get robbed and you cannot tell anyone, who is going to put their money in jeopardy like that?” he said. Monagas said his own mother was kidnapped when he was 12 years old by men who took her to a city several hours away, tied her up, stole her car and credit cards. People in Venezuela rarely go to the police because they know they are corrupt.



John MacArthur Warned Moody Years Ago About James MacDonald, Emails Reveal  — Good for MacArthur and Julie Roys (the journalist doing great work) and bad for all those Moody and Harvest people who propped up MacDonald.  One of the links had a video taken before MacDonald was fired.  It was a group of sycophantic elders shaming and slandering some elders who had left because they didn’t approve of MacDonald’s behavior.

Biden accuses Sanders of not being enough of a gun grabber — Make no mistake: All those Leftists want to take your guns.  Some are just more open about it than others.

Of 12,278 murders committed in the United States in 2018, 235 were committed using rifles. And that rifles of all types, not just the scary looking ones. By contrast, 1,545 were killed by someone using “knives or cutting instruments.” Another 431 were murdered through the use of “blunt objects” including baseball bats and hammers. Both of these categories accounted for far more “carnage in our streets” the rifles.

Traditional Wives Set Feminism Back — I’m glad to see the “tradwife” thing becoming a popular discussion topic.  Even if the feminists are hating on the concept, it highlights the debate.  Too many women think there is no alternative, but there is a much better way.  Countless women – including many in the church – have bought that lie that they can sleep around and be career-oriented until they are 30 and then have their pick of perfect men.  But that’s not how it plays out.

Feminists can plainly see how much more difficult feminism has made their lives, yet going back home, being wives, mothers, and homemakers is appalling to them since it “sets women back.” You see, women, Satan is the author of confusion. Feminists are confused. They believe they fought so hard for their rights that if they go back, they’re giving up all of these rights that have made their lives so difficult.

Intellectual laziness is poison.


BIAS: Roger Stone Jury Forewoman Is Partisan Anti-Trump Democrat — And yet another Dem fiasco where they are caught cheating while trying to blame Trump et al.  She’s a moron for thinking this wouldn’t get out and hurt the Left’s cause, but not a complete moron because she probably inferred that the Leftist media would hide it while they try to go after Barr and Trump.

The foreperson on the jury that convicted Roger Stone has come forward, and is revealed to be a failed Democrat candidate for Congress and activist vehemently opposed to President Donald Trump. Tomeka Hart, a former Memphis City Schools Board President, came forward as the Stone jury foreperson in a Facebook post on Wednesday, voicing support for prosecutors in the case.

One advantage Trump has this cycle is that he’s been more than thoroughly vetted (i.e., they’ve made up things on top of anything he actually did), so all his baggage has been factored in already.

Bonus: FLASHBACK: Mike Bloomberg lied about his height on his driver’s license (BONUS: Photo caption mockery from the NYT) — Trump will have fun with that.

Woman Donates Last Dollar To Warren Campaign In Final Bad Financial Decision | The Babylon Bee

Brady is yet another victim of the great but not super-duper extra great economy and especially of her own decisions, picking up a ton of student debt in a major for which there aren’t any jobs. She has barely managed to subsist after college thanks to her low pay and also thanks to living in a place that is well out of her price range and constantly indulging in things like $30 avocado toast delivered through GrubHub because she “deserved it.” All of this has now culminated in her final dollar ending up in the failing presidential campaign of Elizabeth Warren to support Warren’s completely unworkable plans that would never pass Congress in the extremely unlikely event that Warren ever became president.

Chicago Schadenfreude: Smollett Charged Again — This is important news.  God had a great idea to prevent false accusations: The hoaxers would risk getting the punishment they sought for the innocent! He said that would be just and a deterrent to other false accusers.

Deuteronomy 19:16–21 If a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing, then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the LORD, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days. The judges shall inquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So you shall purge the evil from your midst. And the rest shall hear and fear, and shall never again commit any such evil among you. Your eye shall not pity. It shall be life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot.


Is There Still a Place for Blogs in 2020? — Yes!  Good analysis.

Second, we are seeing the shortcomings of other forms of social media. When blogs began, they were social media. They were an early form of online social connection between people who shared similar interests, whether that was politics, hobbies, Reformed theology, or anything else. But it did not take long for other forms of social media to develop—Twitter was at first considered “microblogging” and Facebook was a kind of “friend and family blogging.” Yet as much as each of these has displaced blogging in certain ways, none has quite replaced it. Twitter causes as many problems as it solves by its immediacy and by the nature of its character limit; Facebook emphasizes the most urgent information while older updates or articles almost immediately disappear into the void. These forms of social media speak to the present, but don’t adequately archive information. They allow people to speak quickly, but don’t value thoughtfulness. Though they have strengths, they also have weaknesses—weaknesses that blogs address well.


Elizabeth Warren Is Doomed, and Feminists Can’t Understand Why — All of the pro-abortion, gun-grabbing, pro-coveting, pro-perversion, pro-fornication Democrats are evil, of course, but that doesn’t mean we can’t rejoice as most of them lose. It is schadenfreude time to watch Warren.

Warren is the phoniest politician in memory, from the Fauxcahontas lie as the foundation for her entire career to the cringe-worthy beer video and everything in between. She was popular among some females, but what real male would vote for a woman who says she will let a trans child — who is by definition mentally ill and foolish — pick the Secretary of Education?

And now in her desperation she’ll get even weirder. Pass the popcorn!


What’s Wrong with Jesus Calling? — Everything.  I just made this point to a group of Kairos prison ministry volunteers.  There was an exercise that was half good (expressing your desires to Jesus through prayer) and half bad (asking Jesus to tell you what He wants you to do, but not telling you to read the Bible to find that out).  Of course I told them why we wouldn’t be doing the second part.  I noted that with books like Jesus Calling you need to add them to the Bible or throw them away, and that they could guess which one I would recommend.

So Young has either written the words of Jesus, or she hasn’t. There’s no in between. If she hasn’t received a word from the Lord, but she claims she has—and made a lot of money from it—is that not the very picture of a false prophet?

The Bible is God’s sufficient word. We need no other! Beware these crazy women who claim God has spoken to them apart from Scripture. The Bible calls them liars, when we understand the text.

‘Just Xerox a copy’: After you hear Mike Bloomberg’s 2015 speech on minorities you’ll see why he tried to block it #BloombergIsRacist — Also see Pete’s comments on black money — oops, dark money — to a group of black people.  If Trump said these things we’d hear about it 24×7, even though the only “racist” comments they attribute to Trump are those they have made up.


When the Church Apologizes for Its Beliefs — We dishonor God when we apologize for what He says.  And we make a terrible witness as well.  The world will always hate you for beliefs, but when you cave to them they lose all respect.

Just days later came another headline, and this one, sadly, didn’t surprise me: “Church sorry for saying that sex is just for married heterosexuals.” Leaders in the Church of England said their initial statement had “jeopardized trust” and caused “hurt and division.” Nothing in the follow-up statement retracted the substance of their earlier pastoral guidance, which made their subsequent apology something like this: We’re sorry we told you what we believe.

I’m genuinely curious as to why the Leftist media and “centrist” Dems (who are nearly as Communistic as Sanders) are just now noticing that an avowed Socialist has been running in the Democratic primaries the last two election cycles.  Did they know that the fix was in in 2016 and are worried that isn’t the case now?

Every one of them [Democrat candidates – not just Sanders and Warren] is well to the left of Barack Obama. (That’s a quote from the WaPo editorial, not just me.) They all want to undo the tax cuts, offer amnesty to illegal aliens, legalize infanticide and destroy the private health insurance industry. And each of them would arrive at the White House with a list of the most liberal judges possible, ready to undo all of the progress that Trump and Cocaine Mitch have made in terms of judicial appointments.


‘Acosta would chain himself to the WH fence’: @redsteeze decimates media in BRUTAL thread for ignoring FL man who drove into GOP tent — Exactly.  Guy drove into a Republican tent and the media ignores it!  Note that the one group that did cover it managed to spin it negatively against Republicans, because it was bad for the victims of attempted murder to retaliate by [checks notes] voting.
