Yeow!

What a year!

 

Personally, I can’t recall an era more confusing than that which we have experienced under Bush II.

 

IMHO, since 1937, the year of my birth, we have moved from a Republic ( though one being seriously undermined by our oligarch FDR) to a Homeland with nary a concern being expressed by the population at large.

 

(Homeland)? 

 

Somehow, that brings to mind the teachings of someone named Adolph!

 

Talk about a testimony to the effectiveness of the NAE!

 

Time was when education meant something other than indoctrination!

 

Back in those days, politicians “feared” the electorate!  


Ask yourself: today, who fears whom?

 

Today, the electorate fears the politicians and their henchmen!

 

Orwell was prescient, to be sure; only 20-30 years off target!

 

Today, Newspeak dominates.

 

Definitions are as amorphous     as a fart in a tornado!

 

Sigh.

 

Still, thank God, the issues are as clear as in the day of Elijah on Carmel ( 1 Kings 18).

 

Oops…that is, if your epistemology is grounded in “…the word of God, written…”.

 

How is this for an appeal to disciplined Bible Study?

 

Given his role as Apostle to the Gentiles and Pioneer of the New Covenant, it behooves us to seriously consider his admonition to the church at Corinth in his second letter, i.e. 2 Cor. 10:3-5.

 

How equipped are you for this exercise?


2 Tim. 2:15 & 3:16, 17

Welcome Home. I trust that your sojourn with your bride was refreshing.

About being equipped. Frank did a good message on convictions vs preference. I appreciated his insight, and acknowledge that standing upon ones convictions (if they are based upon a 2 Tim 2:15 journey) stands opposed to the Worldview, thus becomes persecuted.

I am to resist preference in favor of biblical conviction.

In Lewisology, I am right until proven wrong.
