He ain’t finished yet …

July 29, 2010

I’ve been taping and finishing drywall. The walls in the room I’m working on are smooth, no texture. That reminds me of why I love texturing – because it covers a multitude of sins.

I’m no pro so it takes hours to get all of the wrinkles and pits out of the finished surface. You discover your mistakes by shining a hand-held light up the wall with the room dark.

Sort of like God shining His Light on us and finding all our faults, unless we’re covered in the Lamb’s Blood.

… you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.

— 1 Peter 1:18-19


Conformity not uniformity …

July 28, 2010

Uniformity is neither just nor equitable, and cannot be achieved in a free society.


The worst possible moments …

July 28, 2010

Apathy is a powerful enemy and weariness, his companion is a worthy adversary; my selfishness and my flesh bring them together to oppose my strength and commitment at the worst possible moments.

Ever been there?


The rejected law that wasn’t really rejected …

July 28, 2010

It’s imperative that conservative patriots not lose heart over the setback re Arizona SB1070. Consider this fight for right as something akin to the making of a cake. It’s a process.

You don’t have a cake when you get the recipe out, you don’t have a cake when you gather all the ingredients, you don’t have a cake just because you mixed the ingredients and now have a batter in the cake tin, you don’t have a cake when you put it in the oven, nor do you don’t have a cake when you take it out of the oven.

You don’t have a cake until you’ve put it on a plate and served it up. In this case your guest has asked for an “iced” cake … when this puppy is finally iced by SCOTUS in the months to come, then you’ll have a cake.

Our hope is that the cake doesn’t fall on the way to the plate.


Beware the false prophets …

July 28, 2010

I’ve told friends and congregants for years that this guy (Benny Hinn) was dangerous. And when Paula White and her husband broke up a few years ago, I knew it would only be awhile before she put her Armanis under someone else’s bed.

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”

– Matthew 7:15


Social justology – someone call HAZMAT …

July 28, 2010

More piffle from the administration of piffle.

Social justice is revealing its ugly head everywhere we turn nowadays – in this case at the EPA.

This is what happens when academics dominate an administrations bureaucratic rosters (only 8% of Obama’s cabinet has private sector experience). Academics live in a theoretical construct and have difficulty grasping the simple realities of life and times.

Social justology is simply regurgitated classroom/textbook theory, nothing more.

Prepare your selves for knee-deep piffle. Vote them out in 2010 and 2012.


Opposed by so many …

July 28, 2010

In this world I seek no more than life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness … how is it that I covet so little and yet am opposed by so many?
