‘God Speaks to Me…’ Hold Up There, Sparky, Not So Fast

Posted in Bible by Jim on 22 Jan 2018

Zurich Bible 1525

The only way you can be sure that God is speaking to you is if you’re reading scripture aided by the Holy Spirit. Otherwise that voice you hear?   Yeah, it’s all you.

The Bee Stings The Idiotic Partisanship of American Politics

Posted in mockery by Jim on 22 Jan 2018

Local Trump supporter Trevor Jacobs absolutely brutalized President Obama for the full length of both the former president’s terms in office, but is now calling for all Americans to unite and show respect for their current president, sources close to the man claimed Monday.

The self-described “political junkie,” who is angered every time he sees someone criticize President Trump, reportedly slammed President Obama in a series of savage memes and rants several times a day for eight years.

“Really, it should be a crime to blatantly disrespect the presidential office,” the man who still has a faded, yellowing sticker of Calvin urinating on President Obama on his pickup truck said. “I’m all for free speech, but enough is enough.”

Jacobs further called people who criticize the president “un-American” and “unpatriotic” for not completely agreeing with President Trump’s policies.

“He’s your President, for goodness’ sake. Grow up and stop acting like children,” he said, while blowing his nose with a nearby roll of novelty toilet paper depicting President Obama’s face on each square, according to sources.

And that’s the way it is.

Kirk Cameron’s New Film: ‘Bourne Again’

Posted in mockery by Jim on 22 Jan 2018

Here’s some good ‘news’ for the 2 fans of Kirk Cameron in the world-

The Jason Bourne films based on Robert Ludlum’s hit spy thrillers have delighted moviegoers for the past sixteen years, and now Universal Pictures is injecting the series with a shot of adrenaline with a new spinoff film starring Kirk Cameron: Bourne Again, to be released in May of next year.

Cameron plays a reprogrammed sleeper assassin employed by Focus on the Family who suffers amnesia and must discover why his fellow superspies working for Dr. James Dobson want him dead. Realizing he was developed into a secret weapon in a clandestine evangelism program for $30 million, Cameron finds himself on the run in thrilling getaways and chase sequences.

Unraveling the depths of the Focus on the Family conspiracy, Cameron triggers his memories by playing tracks from Newsboys albums and retraces his steps on a wild ride through Europe and the United States before confronting Dobson once and for all, according to a plot summary released by Universal.

In one scene shown off in an early teaser trailer, Cameron is realizing the depth of his specially acquired powers of evangelism, and tells his companion: “I can tell you the name of every member of the Newsboys, all the way from the original lineup to the kinda iffy Michael Tait era. I can recite John Piper’s entire sermon from Passion’s OneDay in the year 2000. I know the best place to look for a Bible is in the glove compartment in the cab outside, or in the nightstand in my hotel. I can go out right now and street-preach for 14 hours without breaking a sweat. Now why would I know that? How can I know that and not know who I am?”

The thrilling Christian spin-off of the Bourne series reportedly has a large budget of over $150,000.00 and will be released directly on DVD and VHS.

I bet it sells 2 copies.

Quote of the Day

Posted in Bible by Jim on 22 Jan 2018

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you, in God, whose word I praise, in God I put my trust and have no fear, what power has human strength over me?  All day long they carp at my words, their only thought is to harm me, they gather together, lie in wait and spy on my movements, as though determined to take my life. Because of this crime reject them, in your anger, God.  (Ps. 56:3-7)

The Session on Greek…

Posted in Ming Hua Theological College by Jim on 22 Jan 2018

Went well.  We took a look at 1 John 2.  We have one more Greek session on Wednesday.  Tomorrow and Thursday we finish up the sessions on Paul and Job.  Fun times indeed.

After Greek I wandered around a bit more, picked up some dinner at a nice little noodle place (for the equivalent of $4 including a drink) and now I’m back to the room, I think for the evening.

It’s been fairly muggy today so I’ve closed the windows and I’m using the a/c whilst sipping black tea with grapefruit and honey.  I’m going to make this for myself at home.  It’s genius.

Just a few pics to share-
