Did You Know…

That it was on August 10, in 70 A.D. that the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed by Roman troops?  Yup, now you do.

Quote of the Day

[Calvin seemed to have] a peculiar penchant … for detesting lax and cavalier methods of treating texts;  methods such as those he saw exhibited by medieval exegetes and arguably by Lutheran exegetes as well.  — Jon Balsarak

So true!

Inconsistency is Just Another Word For Hypocrisy

So if ‘Christians’ like Falwell and Metaxas and Jeffress and Graham think God appointed Trump they must also accept that God appointed Obama, Clinton, Carter, and all the rest.  Otherwise their inconsistency is mere hypocrisy (which of course it is).

Arguing With Experts….

Does arguing with experts make you stupid, or does being stupid make you argue with experts?   It’s clearly the latter…

@Toon_fan_1 got totally owned.  Justifiably.

Praying with Calvin

Grant, Almighty God, that as thou hast not only provided for thine ancient Church, by choosing JEREMIAH as thy servant, but hast also designed that the fruit of his labours should continue to our age,

—O grant that we may not be unthankful to thee, but that we may so avail ourselves of so great a benefit, that the fruit of it may appear in us to the glory of thy name; may we learn so entirely to devote ourselves to thy service, and each of us be so attentive to the work of his calling, that we may strive with united hearts to promote the honour of thy name, and also the kingdom of thine only-begotten Son, until we finish our warfare, and come at length into that celestial rest, which has been obtained for us by the blood of thine only Son. Amen.
