Things I Think
The videos have been “debunked” and the practice of abortion defended by people who on other issues have been known as thoughtful and intelligent.
It is as if they do not, truly cannot, see the grim and vicious procedure for what it is.
My only frame of reference for such blindness was my own grandmother.
I was a hellion as a teenager, a drunken hellion at that.
Everyone knew this as I never made any attempt to hide it.
My grandma did not believe this wicked report and even when I would arrive at her home too drunk to stand she would deny what her eyes showed her.
She loved me too much to believe the truth…the truth would be what she believed no matter the evidence.
My only question now is this.
What is it that abortion supporters love so much that they choose to be blind to the truth?
2. While my liberal friends have rightly noted that if one is pro-life they must be pro-life after the the child is born, the reverse must be true as well. I’m not sure how this escapes them…
3. No matter how hard I try, I still cannot develop a taste for fiction in literature. I’m sure that this is to my detriment.
4. Who would have ever thought that Oregon wouldn’t get enough rain?
5. I got an email the other day asking me what I thought about the “shemitah” teachings. I had to look it up. It seems that the prophecy wonks have a new wagon to load with money from people who love sensationalist eschatology. I guess that’s what I think about it….
6. I think from now on I’m going to call eschatological sensationalism “end times porn”. Yes, I think I will…
7. Tullian Tchividjian filed for divorce. Evidently, radical grace has it’s limits too…
8. In the 14th century, approximately 50% of Europe died from the plague. Oddly enough, it was not a ‘sign of the times”…
9. Today on Calvin’s Corner Phil asked me what the most neglected doctrine in the church is today… what do you think it is?
10. The specific details of the Older Testament law are not binding on the Christian…the principles are.
