Twitter Theology That Makes Me Sigh

This is what happens when ideology drives interpretation:  baseless supposition.

The claim is false on its face.  Name one single author of one single biblical text that moderns (and that’s the anachronistic problem) would call oppressed.  Name just one, and then show me how you know that person was oppressed.

I’ll wait.

Get The Commentary That Even a Lawyer Loves!

The ‘Person in the Pew’ commentary series is the only series of Commentaries written by a single person on the entire Bible and aimed at layfolk in modern history.

The books can be obtained now only in PDF format for a mere $199 by clicking my PayPal Link.

But not everyone is interested in every book of the Bible so after having received a number of requests for individual volumes in the series I’ve decided to offer any single volume for $5.

If you bought each volume individually it would cost $210 for the entire series in electronic form at $5 each, so it still makes sense to buy the whole. But I’m happy to send each volume individually for those who prefer it.

Just paypal me $5 and tell me which you wish. If you want two or three simply multiply each volume by $5.  But BE SURE to include your email address or I will not be able to send them!

It’s a good commentary. But don’t take my word for it:

This commentary set is written and designed exactly for the average person. The person who hasn’t spent years in book learning and writing papers. Rather, it’s for a person who feels a yearning to know a bit more so they can grow spiritually and intellectually in the faith. The average person might not know where to start on the journey. This set does it beautifully. – Doug Iverson

Come On, ABC- Don’t Be The Fake News

ABC reported that this truck was involved in an accident because of Irma.  But one look at the bottom right hand shows the image is from Arizona.  That’s where Maricopa County is.

Come on.  Make a little effort to be accurate.

Texas… Churches… Are Suing… Fema…

Churches in Texas are suing FEMA… for reimbursement….    Allow me to put this as plainly as possible- if you’re a Church, and you help people, and then you sue the government for reimbursement, you aren’t a Church.

We Weren’t Photographed Every 12 Seconds in the 60’s

I enjoy seeing photos of kids on the facebook and the instagram.  Everyone I know who has a youngster posts a couple of dozen pictures a week of the little tyke doing this or that.  It wasn’t like that when I was a kid.  Cameras used film and you had to pay to have the film developed and the little kodax box cameras that you got rid of after use didn’t have many features.  Most pictures turned out crap.

But I wonder how much life is missed these days because parents are too busy snapping photos instead of enjoying the moment…

The only photos I have of my childhood:
