At being the worst-
Trump hits 62% disapproval. Carter, Reagan, HW Bush, Clinton, Obama never hit that number. Ever. WBush hit it after more than 1900 days. Trump is the best at a historical worst.- Matthew Dowd
The kind described here:
You may be quite sure that in the last days there will be some difficult times. People will be self-centred and avaricious, boastful, arrogant and rude; disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, irreligious; heartless and intractable; they will be slanderers, profligates, savages and enemies of everything that is good; they will be treacherous and reckless and demented by pride, preferring their own pleasure to God. They will keep up the outward appearance of religion but will have rejected the inner power of it. Keep away from people like that. Of the same kind, too, are those men who insinuate themselves into families in order to get influence over silly women who are obsessed with their sins and follow one craze after another, always seeking learning, but unable ever to come to knowledge of the truth. (2 Tim. 3:1-7)
Or the kind described here:
Love is always patient and kind; love is never jealous; love is not boastful or conceited, it is never rude and never seeks its own advantage, it does not take offence or store up grievances. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but finds its joy in the truth. It is always ready to make allowances, to trust, to hope and to endure whatever comes. Love never comes to an end. (1 Cor. 13:4-8)
Which are you, and which do you want to be? Because the choice is fully yours.

The monograph series Orbis biblicus et orientalis is now available online! Of particular interest to us Septuagint folks can be the 1975 volume “Hexaplarische Psalmenbruchstücke: Die hexaplarischen Psalmenfragmente der Handschriften Vaticanus graecus 752 und Canonicianus graecus 62” by A. Schenker, for example. Happy reading!
The series is available here.
The Pastor with the MBA or worse, a mere degree in business from a College or University. If your Pastor doesn’t hold theological degrees, find a Church where the Pastor does.
If your Pastor isn’t a Scripture scholar, you’re in the wrong Church.
.@SenOrrinHatch on CHIP: “I have a rough time wanting to spend billions and billions and trillions of dollars to help people who won’t help themselves – won’t lift a finger – and expect the federal government to do everything.” Unbelievable. CHIP is a program for children.
The GOP has lost its mind.
