Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb. 9th, 2016 Holy Ground

God is rarely found in the accolades of men. He is found in the wilderness, in the places of solitude. Don’t fear the isolation. You are standing on holy ground.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb 4th, 2016 Are You ن ?

We are living in a time of heroes of the Cross but we’re so enslaved to our American comfort that we live our days unaware. Meanwhile, brothers and sisters we’ve never met are losing everything, driven by persecution to flee for their lives with nothing but the literal clothes on their backs to live in tents, or worse. Those who do not make it out, or stay in defiance of Islamists to be the light of Christ in a darkening world, are being martyred for the Savior they love more than life itself.

What are you and I doing, not only to shine God’s light in our own darkening world, but to bring some relief to our brothers and sisters of faith who have lost all for the Cross of Christ?

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan. 30, 2016 Get Sick Of Yourself

Many who attempt, suicide, and sometimes “succeed”, do so for things such as no longer being able to deal with physical pain, no doubt coupled with emotional pain. The rest of course do so because they no longer wish to face said emotional pain. In all cases it is of course tragic. Yet I cannot help but think on one level they are half way to a truth they are unwilling to continue through the process to completion.

When we get so sick of our lives as we have molded them through our own choices, to the point we give up on our lives, we are at a potentially eternal crossroad where one path is nothing short of glorious. Yes we can give up. We can use our last decision in life to act consistent with our past. Decisions that have us here at this crossroad in the first place, unwilling to turn to the God we’ve all heard about at some level. Or, even if we know little about this Creator, and even doubt he exists, or doubt the claim he loves us, we can choose to strike a new path. We can truly get so sick of ourselves that instead of ending our mortal existence, we cry out to God in surrender, leaving the remainder of our days in his hands, to mold us as he wills. To help us finally know that we were created for a wonderful purpose,

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” – Psalm 139:14

and to turn the ashes of our self destruction into beauty.

“…and provide for those who grieve in Zion —
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.

They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”

Get sick of yourself. It can lead to beauty beyond imagination.

Auschwitz Again? (Part III)

Excellent Blog post on the depravity of Eugenics

The Praetorian Writers Group

In this post here, and this one here, we directed a light at the revolting Eugenics movement in the United States of the early and mid-twentieth century.

In those posts, we pointed out that only the discoveries of the Nazi concentration camps stirred the Western World’s moral sensibilities enough to turn on the Eugenics movement, and to reject it for the depraved monstrosity it was.

Then, we pointed out that the Eugenics movement had not actually died, but lived on in the abortion mills, and in the racist and genocidal thinking of the Race Grievance Industry and elsewhere. It thrives also in Europe today, where “post-birth abortion” is an idea growing in popularity.

One other vital component, though, was present in the Eugenics movement: a belief that man is the highest moral authority there is. Eugenicists were overwhelmingly atheists. They needed to expunge any belief in a higher power…

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan. 24th, 2016 Day By Day, Moment By Moment

Christians tend to focus on the final days of Christ. His suffering, his death, his resurrection, and rightfully so. But were it not for Jesus living holy every single day of his life, those final days would be to no avail, and you and I would be eternally lost, destined for a hell not meant for us to know. Let us aspire to live our lives day by day, moment by moment, demonstrating that we are not just grateful for our Lord’s sacrifice on a bloody cross, but for 30 plus years of perfect holiness, lived out day by day, moment by moment.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 20th, 2016 Shame On Me….Please!

Our modern society celebrates the shameless and their shamelessness but I’m deeply grateful for shame. It drives me back to the feet of my Savior, where all that is holy, all that is pure is found. Where I am washed clean from my wretched filth, and ultimately from the shame that makes me aware of it. Yes, shame on me….please!

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan 19th, 2016 “Torn Between”

 

“For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you.” – Paul, the Apostle (Philippians 1:23-24)

 

Day by day I find myself increasingly walking in this knowledge. If for my sake alone then I need no longer be here save for what Christ may wish to teach me for others, for my future is sure and I long to see it, and more importantly, I wish to see him who secured it for me.

Yet others need me here, many of whom don’t even realize their need. So I trod on, torn between this life and the next, often in sorrow but always in hope, trusting my Savior to complete the work in, and through me, that will allow me to take off these dusty warn shoes some day, and wade across the Jordon, where home awaits. Such is the life of those “torn between.”
