‘Owe no man anything…’ ~ Romans 13:8a  


‘I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena.  In fact, the pandering that typically occurs in the election season I find to be distasteful. But for those who have asked, I freely confess that Jesus Christ is my personal Saviour, and I seek His guidance in all that I do.  I know, as you do, that our freedoms come not from man, but from God.  My record of public service reflects my reverence for the Natural Rights with which we have been endowed by a loving Creator.’  ~ Ron Paul


‘Christian financial counselor Dave Ramsey says the church in America could have more of an impact worldwide for Christ if believers weren’t slaves to debt.’


I’ll have a blue Christ-mas without you …


‘But most of all I was shocked by my shock.  I was shocked by the fact that a reasonable well-educated, well-informed man like me, who reads at least a dozen alternative news sites like this one daily, should have so many misconceptions in my head about Iran…without my even being aware they were there.  Like the notion that Iran is one big, brain-baking desert.  Or that Iran is hostile to Christians and women.’


Oh, people–look around you

The signs are everywhere.

You’ve left it for somebody other than you

To be the one to care.

~ Jackson Browne, ‘Rock Me On the Water’ 


‘Ron Paul’s commitment to the sanctity of human life goes beyond rhetoric.  He is the man who sponsored H. R. 776, entitled the “Sanctity of Life Act of 2005.”  Had it passed, H. R. 776 would have recognised the personhood of all unborn babies by declaring that “human life shall be deemed to exist from conception.”‘


‘When not evolving his position on Darwinism, Huckabee insults gays [sic] by pointlessly citing the Bible’s rather pointed remarks about sodomy…fitting the MSM’s [Mainstream Media] image of evangelicals sitting around all day denouncing gays [sic].  (Which is just so unfair.  I’m usually done denouncing gays by 10:00 a.m., 11 tops.)  And yet, Huckabee has said he agrees with the Supreme Court’s lunatic opinion that sodomy is a constitutional right.’  ~ Ann Coulter


It’s nice to meet you, Mary.  I’m E. Stirbunee.


This story illustrates yet again why Christians must stand firm on the Creation account given in God’s Word.  It also sounds the call to insist that Christianity and science are not mutually exclusive.  In fact, it is just the opposite; they compliment each other–when each is interpreted correctly.


Those crazy Lakota!  Don’t they know what happens to Secessionists?!


One thing that tends to drive me somewhat insane is when someone who has been caught dead-to-rights lying looks you square in the face and says that they ‘did not mean to be misleading.’  Et tu, Lunch Lady?


This is so COOL it is scary!  (Thanks to The Covenanticle)


From Historia Ecclesiastica: ‘In Romans 12:3 the Apostle defines one aspect of humility: knowing one’s gifts and limitations and acting accordingly.  The constant temptation for God’s children is the one that came to Adam and Eve in the garden: we can be as God and know, and by implication do, all things.  But we cannot be as God–we all have limitations, we all have a place to fill that no other can fill.  One great task for all of us that call on the Lord Jesus is to determine where He would have us serve and do that to the best of our ability.’


To-day’s Musical Gift is one of my favourite bluegrass numbers that sure will get your toes a-tappin’!  (You’re welcome!)
