Luther Gets the Last Word Today

You honor and serve the devil, thus deserving death in body and soul ten times over. I have never heard of a more hideous sin.  — Luther

Apparently he’s been following Robert Jeffress on twitter.

The Best Tweet of the Week

@poyntilism — “When a man says that he’s looking for a “Biblical Woman,” remember that he just might be looking for someone woman enough to drive a tent spike through his temple.”

Quote of the Day

Do not put your trust in princes, in any child of Adam, who has no power to save. When his spirit goes forth he returns to the earth, on that very day all his plans come to nothing. How blessed is he who has Jacob’s God to help him, his hope is in Yahweh his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them. He keeps faith for ever, gives justice to the oppressed, gives food to the hungry; Yahweh sets prisoners free. Yahweh gives sight to the blind, lifts up those who are bowed down. Yahweh protects the stranger, he sustains the orphan and the widow. Yahweh loves the upright,but he frustrates the wicked.   (Ps. 146:3-9)

A New Theoblog

Here’s Randy Blacketer’s new site. I know… I didn’t even know he had an old one.  I’ve added it to the theoblogs.

‘Cut Spending’…

Those whose creed is ‘cut spending’ are invaribly people for whom money is god and who would rather spend $6 on a cup of coffee for themselves than lose that money in taxes to buy formula for a child living in poverty. Hell is festooned with spending cutters.

Just because.

Reviewed: Enslaved Leadership in Early Christianity

This looks like a VERY interesting book. And the review is super.

Enslaved Leadership in Early Christianity is a most welcome contribution to a recent effort to see anew the ancient world by focusing on its enslaved inhabitants. Bringing together material and textual evidence related to Roman Ephesos, Katherine Shaner works hard to help readers recognize enslaved people where the historical record has, at least to our eyes until now, left very few traces. Her argument is that when we understand public displays of power (whether material or textual) as attempts to persuade rather than as descriptions of relationships, then we are confronted with a much more complex picture of the status of enslaved people.

Etc.  Enjoy.

John Milton coined a neologism in ‘Paradise Lost’: ‘pandemonium’. I.e., the place where sin and the Devil ruled along with ‘their Atheist crew’.
