‘I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.’  ~ Psalm 120:70

  • The man who awarded my son’s namesake his nom de guerre died on yesterday’s date in 1861. 




  • How do some folks reconcile Christianity with such things as advocacy of abortion on demand?—with bad theology: ‘“Theologically, we believe that in the greatest decision of our entire lives – whether to follow God or not – God allows us to choose,” she said. “If God is big enough to allow that choice, then who are we to dictate choices to other people? Your choices have consequences, but you should be allowed to make those choices.”’  However, a proper understanding of the monergistic work of the Holy Ghost would show the fault in such reasoning. 




  • ‘One of history’s oldest copies of the Bible will be accessible to millions of people around the world soon – 1,600 years after it was first penned on calfskin parchment by early Christians in Egypt.’ 



  • We often hear folks around us mention (no doubt with a certain degree of hyperbole) how ‘poor’ they are when, in fact, they really mean that they don’t have as much money as they wish they had.  If you are interested to see what real poverty looks like, watch this




  • When you hear that one of the most shocking (and disgusting) rock ‘n rollers of all time—Alice Cooper—say something like this, ‘[T]he most rebellious thing I ever did was to become a Christian’, it is quite encouraging.  Yet, although he attends church and Bible study regularly, Cooper has not shed his horror show vocation.  This article brings to mind the important question raised by Frances Schaeffer: ‘How then should we live?




  • There is legitimate reason to believe that neither John McCain nor Barack Obama are constitutionally eligible to serve as President of the United States.  This raises a pivotal question: If a Constitutional requirement can be disregarded with such brazeness, are any of our rights enumerated in that document really protected?  And should we not be very concerned—or scared




  • ‘Politicians and celebrities with an urge to see black poverty only need to visit the Mississippi Delta or some of the neighborhoods in American cities. If they yearn for more exotic poverty, all they have to do is visit the Indian reservations that do not have casinos. Any disease they are hot to trot to cure can be found right here in the good old U.S.A.’ 










  • ‘Fashion experts [whatever that means, ed.] believe that the trend, which started on the catwalks and has now reached the high street, strengthens the theory that flush times mean higher hemlines, while the tightening of belts sends skirts to the floor.’ 




  • Had there been no World War II, thousands of Jewish lives probably would have been spared: ‘In February 1942, for example, Goebbels wrote in his diaries, “World Jewry will suffer a great catastrophe. … The Führer realizes the full implications of the great opportunity offered by this war.” A month later, after describing the deportations from Poland’s ghettos, Goebbels observed, “Fortunately, a whole series of possibilities presents itself for us in wartime that would be denied us in peacetime. We shall have to profit by this.”’ 







  • Can you tell that this motel is owned by one of the members of The B-52’s? 

You ever get the feeling somebody’s watching you?

  1. Please tell me that the shark photo is doctored. That is truly chilling.
    On a nother note, I’m very excited to know that my “demure,” covered-up look will be stylish once again. I was so worried about being behind the fashion curve.
