    facts are tedious, particularly a full half hour plus of them, but Susan Collins address just now proved that she is worthy of the title U.S. Senator and i say that whether one agrees with her conclusion or not – i only caught one catch phrase, all the rest of her address was a litany of facts proven, not possibles or unsubstantiated emotion … but then some will always say that Kavanaugh was not THOROUGHLY investigated… there are some things, and this makes most of us cringe a bit, that can only be substantiated by God, Himself….

    Don’t forget when buying eggs, do not purchase an 18 count carton cuz that is …. 6 6 6, too
    When driving, do not go 60 mph, because in 3 hours…..
    If you cycle, 6 mph is also dangerous…. skateboarders wil just have to rely on grace, i guess
    Avoid the number six at all costs, just to be safe. 😱. LOL

    A New Creation

    “Therefore, a new creature is the work of the Holy Spirit that through faith frees the heart from heavy loads; brings about the fear of God, love, modesty; etc. The Spirit also grants the courage to subdue the flesh and to flee from the righteousness and wisdom of the world. Here, we are not talking about watercolors or a new external species but a fact so real you can carry with you. Another thought pattern and way to judge things – namely, spiritual – is born. Whatever previously was praiseworthy is now detested….

    “Therefore, to change your garments and other external things (as the monks imagine) is not the same as a new creation. Instead, it is the renewal of the mind through the Holy Spirit from which proceeds a change in the body’s members and emotions, for when the heart has been illumined by a new light, a new way to understand things, and by new emotions conceived by the Gospel, the external feelings are also renewed. Now the ears desire to hear the word of God and not the traditions and fantasies of men. The mouth and the tongue no longer boast of their own works, righteousness, and regulations. Now they ceaselessly and joyfully magnify God’s mercy offered to us in Jesus Christ. These changes, so to speak, are not in mere words but are real. They bring a new way of thinking, a new will, new feelings; the flesh will feel new sensations and carry out new actions. Now the eyes, ears, mouth, and tongue no longer see, hear, and talk as they did before. Rather, the mind approves and takes different stands than it did before. Previously, blinded by the papal errors and such darkness, we imagined that God was a merchant, who was selling us His grace in exchange for our works and merits. But now in the light of the Gospel, we are given the assurance that we are counted as righteous by faith in Christ alone. We praise and magnify God’s mercy, rejoice and glory in the only assurance and guarantee that there is, which is God’s mercy through Jesus Christ. If we are to suffer trials or affliction, we carry them with joy and gladness although the flesh moans and complains. This is what Paul calls being born into a new creation.”

    Good stuff BrianD!

    My mother got a PO Box in the next town, 95665 rather than 95666 where she lived.

  11. Em says:

    I’ve had enough of the recent politics of choosing a Supreme Court Justice (probably have not heard the last of this recent episode). I appreciate that this website of Michael’s is, for the most part the domain of honest men – don’t always agree with every thought expressed, but i learn from everyone here – not gender dependent.
    All that to say that the mob demonstrations connected with the above mentioned hearings worry me. Any woman bellowing, mindlessly, at the top of her lungs has a serious problem and is a serious problem – she is either a wicked person or someone in need of professional help.
    Speaking as someone who knows her sex and the trials and confusions of living as a female in today’s unsettled times, do not cater to such, no matter what conclusions, if any, you have come to through the recent hearings and Kavanaugh’s confirmation. At the risk of sounding like an evangelical, there is 666 written all over these mobs.
    Just sayin’ … again. 😇

  12. Jean says:

    “[M]ob demonstrations”; “[B]ellowing, mindlessly”; “serious problem”; “666 written all over these mobs.”

    Yes, I too remember the Tea Party demonstrations against President Obama. The Kenyon; the Muslim; the President who wanted to take away your guns; the enemy of America.

    The leader who had the courage to say what most people (who are brainwashed) believe: that in this country, the richest country in the world, everyone should have access to good, affordable healthcare. Yes I remember that demonic dream too.

  13. Em says:

    Jean, without coming down on one side or the other, the point is, no matter your political leanings, what we are seeing now does not fit the category of demonstration… we are very close to some very sorrowful outcomes
    My hope is that the wild, out of control minority seen today gets thinking people, sober and …. thinking…
    that is most of us, i hope

  14. Jean says:

    It’s not an out of control minority. It is aggrieved minorities (plural).

    Why?

    “[A]s it is written: ‘None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one. Their throat is an open grave; they use their tongues to deceive. The venom of asps is under their lips. Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; in their paths are ruin and misery, There is no fear of God before their eyes.’ ”

    What sickens me is not the heathen who don’t claim to belong to Christ (What else do you expect?), but the heathen who peddle filth in the name of Christ.

  15. Em says:

    Well, Jean, it appears that your “it” and my “it” refer to two different its….

    The danger to our Republic are some unstable, aggressive its who seem to be emotion driven pawns… and there is physical danger to all of us from these its…
    In the name of Christ? Whatever means gets them to their goal… Jesus was crucified by pacifiers of zealots and their mob

    I repeat, whatever your cause of choice, this trend is dangerous

  16. Jean says:

    The danger to the Republic are not the pawns, like the ones who occupy public lands illegally at gunpoint, but the moneyed interests who are strip mining our country for short term gain.

  17. Em says:

    No, Jean, your strip miners and possibly the frackers and wind farmers, are a danger to our environment, not our Republic

    I HATE MESSIAH POLITICS…
