Talon’s Point of the Day -March 10th, 2016 Water or Marshmallows?

God set up boundaries of conduct for our own benefit. We disregard these boundaries, for which his benefits are contingent, to our own peril. This is true as an individual, a group, even a nation.

As a nation, let alone the world as a whole, we have dispelled with God’s boundaries and there is collective peril just outside our doorstep, all the while our house is burning. The only question that remains is “Who will you and I throw our lot in with when the voices call for burning sacrifices in the fires of our own destruction?” Will we offer the ever unwanted living water, or reach for the marshmallows?

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 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.”

A Response to John Fugelsang’s famous ‘Jesus Quote’

Great response to the antichrist heart in John Fugelsang

How to Religion

John Fugelsang’s quote is so theologically off, it’s embarrassing. In his video, he ends his quote by saying, “that’s only if you believe what’s actually in the Bible”. Let’s break down this quote of his.

o-JESUS-570“Jesus was a guy who was peaceful, radical, nonviolent revolutionary” (from the video)

When we think of Jesus, we do get the image that He is peaceful and nonviolent. But in the same time, Jesus broke the law (e.g. the Sabbath), rebuked authorities, and questioned the Jewish law. Is that considered peaceful? Additionally, Jesus Himself said, “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew 10:34). The word ‘sword’ here means persecution of Christians. How is persecution peaceful? The Pulpit commentary does an excellent job of interpreting the peace of Jesus: “The Prince of Peace did not come to cast in…
