‘May my teaching drop as the rain, my speech distill as the dew, like gentle rain upon the tender grass, and like showers upon the herb.’  ~ Deuteronomy 32:2  

 

 

 

  • By leaving the children in the public schools, where they will be taught—starting in kindergarten—that Christian morality is wrong, the SBC has pulled its own teeth.  What are children to think, when their church and their parents say “gay marriage” is wrong, yet leave them in schools where they are taught “gay marriage” is right? If Christian teachings are supposed to be authoritative, are not the schools in the wrong for teaching the opposite? But if the schools are wrong, will not the children eventually have to ask, “Then what are we doing here?” 

 

  • How is it that the first drink [of beer] from a tankard tastes best? Perhaps it’s on account of sin, because our flesh and our lips are sinful.  ~ Martin Luther

 

 

 

  • ‘Hello Al Gore; Hello UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  Your science is flawed; your hypothesis is wrong; your data is manipulated.  And, may I add, your scare tactics are deplorable.  The Earth does not have a fever.  Carbon dioxide does not cause significant global warming.’  ~ John Coleman, Creator of The Weather Channel

  • Is this book better than Oz, Narnia, Tolkien, and Alice in Wonderland?

 

 

 

  • NEITHER HERE NOR THERE:  Nothing mitigates the tedium of a Monday workday quite like the cool that is Steely Dan oozing from my headphones.

 

 

 

  • ‘Has it come then to this, that the chaste spouse of Christ is reduced to borrow the meretricious adornment of the “scarlet whore,” in order to catch the unholy admiration of the ungodly?’  ~  Rev. Robert L. Dabney on the church and culture.

 

 

 

  • As the U.S. Government continues ‘God’s Work’ in the Middle East, Iraqi Christians, who once thrived there, continue to be martyred and persecuted. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • The man who played Forrest Gump as a child recently completed his enlistment in the Army—after having served a tour in Iraq. 

 

 

 

  • I’ll bet you didn’t hear much—if anything at all—about this story in the Lamestream Media.
