  • "Put off the Old, Put on the New" (Sermon on Ephesians 4:17 - 5:2)

    “Put off the Old, Put on the New” (Ephesians 4:17 - 5:2) “Clothes make the man.” I’m sure many of you have heard that old saying. “Clothes make the man.” The idea is that how you dress will affect how people perceive you--and maybe also how you perceive yourself. If you dress shabbily, in dingy, dirty old clothes, you will be perceived one way. If you dress your best, you will convey a different impression. “Clothes make the man.” Likewise, it’s a good idea to dress appropriate to who you are. If you’re a pastor, a clerical shirt is appropriate...

    By now you’ve heard of the compound in New Mexico where children were being both abused and taught to become school shooters. The makeshift compound — located near the Colorado border — was found shielded by old tires, wooden pallets and other debris. Upon authorities’ arrival, Wahhaj was “heavily armed with an AR15 rifle, five loaded 30 round magazines, and four loaded pistols, including one in his pocket when he was taken down,” Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said. The sheriff said the children, ages 1 to 15, “looked like third world country refugees not only with no food or fresh water,...

    There's a WAR on There's a war on, whether or not we wanted to know it, and that war is getting hotter. No it isn't a war with Russia or China or North Korea. It's a war between God and Satan. Satan picked this fight, but God is going to finish it. I've never seen so much spiritual disinformation flying around in my whole life. The devil's getting desperate. Lies are the only thing that he's got for himself, so he dishes them out everywhere. Unbelievers fall for it, but so do weak Christians, who need to learn something more...
  • Trump and Israel dabble in Hamas and PLO quicksand

    For Trump to contemplate being dragged into the Hamas and PLO quicksand that has claimed so many sincerely-intentioned do-gooders preceding him is incomprehensible President Trump’s attempt to see a five-year Gaza ceasefire negotiated between Hamas and Israel seems to be an exercise in futility destined to failure. America’s involvement first surfaced on 7 July when “an unnamed senior Trump administration official” stated:
  • France Passes Law Saying Children Can Consent To Sex With Adults

    Geller Report ^ | 8/6/2018 | Pamela Geller
    Why did France’s government vote against having an age of consent? The answer is obvious. Muhammad married his favorite wife Aisha when she was six and consummated the marriage when Aisha was nine. Since Muhammad did that, and since he is the “excellent example” for all Muslims to follow, child marriage is acceptable in Islam. This is a sign of France’s capitulation and Islamization. They cannot set an age of consent, because Islam doesn’t have one. This is a sign of how quickly Western values erode when our leaders do not have the will to defend them.

    No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main . . . Any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. ~JOHN DONNEFor the moment, forget everything you’ve ever heard about right-to-die or right-to-life positions. Put aside the court rulings. Push out of your mind the tug-at-your-heart stories you’ve seen in the movies or read about online.Now, with no one reading your thoughts, may I ask, “Do you know when it...

    The Danger of Hitler Comparisons By Philip Cottraux October 26, 1948. Facing possible defeat from Republican challenger Thomas Dewey, Harry Truman said in a campaign speech in Chicago: “A Republican victory on election day will bring a Fascistic threat to American freedom that is even more dangerous than the perils from communism and extreme right crackpots.” The New York Times headline the following morning screamed loudly: “PRESIDENT LIKENS DEWEY TO HITLER AS ‘FASCIST TOOL.’” A new tradition was born. Every Republican presidential candidate since has been compared to Hitler. In the aftermath of World War II, this cynical attempt to...

    “Unity and Growth in the Body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:1-16) Our text today is the Epistle, from Ephesians 4. We are now entering the second half of Ephesians. In the first half, St. Paul laid down the foundation of our life in Christ, that God has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing, according to the riches of his grace. Now in the second half, Paul moves into the practical implications of this for our life together as church and our life as individual Christians. Today’s text emphasizes the churchly dimension of our life together, that we walk together...
  • No Christians Among UK’s Syrian Refugees [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 5 August 2018 | John Semmens
    Of the more than 1,000 refugees admitted into the United Kingdom from war-torn Syria during the first quarter of 2018 none were Christians. Home Secretary Sajid Javid explained that “for us to admit Christians would merely exacerbate the already existing religious imbalance between the two countries. We already have a surplus of Christians in the UK and a comparative shortage of Muslims. The opposite is the case in Syria.” Javid acknowledged that “the discrimination, oppression, and murder of Christians in Muslim-run countries is unfortunate. However, we feel we must take a longer range perspective. That perspective is founded on the...

    The culture wars we are fighting are indeed as deep as the Catholic Church, but it's not limited to the Catholic Church, and it's not just a gay thing. Corruption wears many disguises, including liturgical garments. Don't let the robes fool you The conspiracy of silence in the Catholic Church over scandals involving sex, homosexuality, cover-ups, payouts, betrayal, and corruption have left many Catholics disillusioned and even angry. Corruption wears many disguises, including liturgical garments. As Part l of “Conspiracy of Silence in Catholic Dioceses”, I addressed, Sacramento Bishop Jaime Soto as one such cover-up agent, according to many area...

    Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Ontario, says: "I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto . I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance." “That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque; thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, "The Turban Cowboy," and the other,...

    Strife and Betrayal in Sacramento Diocese The conspiracy of silence in the Catholic Church over scandals involving sex, homosexuality, cover-ups, payouts, betrayal, and corruption have left many Catholics disillusioned and even angry. Corruption wears many disguises, including liturgical garments. There is a cancer in the Catholic Church that needs to be eradicated. The cancer is not Catholicism, rather it is about the dangerous, corrupt behavior in too many of the Bishops. The traditional role of a bishop is as head of a diocese—the buck stops with the Bishop.

    After the July 22, 2018 Danforth attack the media and police utterly betrayed themselves by conspiring to suppress the Islamic terrorist link. On July 22, 2018 Faisal Hussein, a Canadian-born 29-year-old male of Pakistani heritage and Muslim faith, opened fire with a handgun on citizens along Toronto’s Danforth Avenue, killing two and wounding 13. After an exchange of gunfire with police Faisal Hussein turned his gun on himself. Faisal was known to police. He had posted favourable comments on jihadi websites and had recently visited Afghanistan.
