Today….

And Then He Said…

Word, Words, Incomprehensible Words, Computer, Bible

I have no idea what it’s about except it has something to do with computer something something vague words, other words, bible.

Jerry Falwell’s Mindset…

Is described in stunningly simple terms in the book, ‘Righteous Gentiles’. The author remarks

“Falwell felt honored to receive a Jabotinsky award because Jabotinsky said power should be your goal, and Falwell thinks like Jabotinksy.”

That award was given to Falwell because of his pro-Israel political maneuverings.

In brief, Jerry Falwell’s aim in life was the acquisition of power. That’s where his son Jerry Jr. picked up his craven skills.

The rotten depraved apple doesn’t fall far from the rotten depraved apple tree.

The Visual Commentary on Scripture

This is an interesting looking project from KCL and with Joan Taylor involved it surely will be worthwhile as it develops.

The Spammers are Upping Their Game: Latin Spam

This is new-

5 points for originality and 5 points for Latin.  But I’m still not sending you my bank info.

That Doctored Video the White House is Passing Around is Fraudulent

Here are the facts, and the evidence.  Acosta never laid a hand on that intern and any suggestion to the contrary, based on the White House’s faked video, is inaccurate, misleading, and dishonest.

Quote of the Day

My zeal is destroying me because my foes have forgotten your word. (Ps. 119:139)

Footage of the Polls in Georgia Where Black Residents Predominate

People… They Never Change

Jesus said ‘In all truth I tell you, you are looking for me not because you have seen the signs but because you had all the bread you wanted to eat. Do not work for food that goes bad, but work for food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of man will give you, for on him the Father, God himself, has set his seal.’

Then they said to him, ‘What must we do if we are to carry out God’s work?’

Jesus gave them this answer, ‘This is carrying out God’s work: you must believe in the one he has sent.’

So they said, ‘What sign will you yourself do, the sight of which will make us believe in you? What work will you do? Our fathers ate manna in the desert; as scripture says: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ (Jn. 6:26-31)

So Jesus feeds the mob and the mob follows him, just because they want more food, and Jesus tells them to stop being such jerks and live for God instead of their guts and the mob demands Jesus prove himself by giving them more stuff to eat because what they really want is a handout.

People never change.

Pentebabbleists Are Unhinged Nutbags

Erm….  You guys are an idiot sandwich.

Hatred

Murder often springs from hate, the hater, even though he has not yet slain his victim, is at heart a murderer. — Jerome

13 Dead, Many Injured in a California Shooting Overnight…

So naturally it’s time for politicians to offer thoughts and prayers and yada yada meaningless pointless yada. They must grovel before the @NRA .  Even if it means everyone in the country being killed.

If you are a person who calls yourself pro life and yet you refuse to demand better and more sensible gun legislation, you’re a liar.

Huldrych Zwingli On The Problem With Pseudo-Scholars

They are so ignorant as to the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, in their essence, substance, divinity, power, that they do not know what you mean when you speak of one and understand all three; and their lack of knowledge is accompanied by such recklessness that what they are extremely ignorant of they all the more violently drag under suspicion.

Or they are so willingly and knowingly impious that they assail with the depravity of a perverted heart what they see is done rightly and piously, and since they despair of accomplishing anything in open warfare, they make an underground attack, alleging a fear that we are too much inclined sometimes towards the Father, sometimes towards the Son. To all such I say, κλαίειν, “fare ill.”
