  • Telling The Truth and The Word (A Personal Post for the New Now.)

    For me John 1-1 is the most powerful verse of the Bible. Equating Logos with God underscores the supreme importance of free speech and honesty. I feel the need for more of both in this month where Big Tech deplatformed a sitting president and where others rush to convict him for inciting insurrection when he said “protest peacefully”. Truth matters to me.
  • "Feasting and Fellowship Forever" (Funeral sermon on Isaiah 25:6-9 and Revelation 7:9-17)

    “Feasting and Fellowship Forever” (Isaiah 25:6-9; Revelation 7:9-17) Our brother Ron has died, and we feel the loss. And especially you, John, for Ron was not only your brother in Christ, he was also your father in the flesh. But for all of us who knew him, we will miss Ron. For our congregation here at St. Matthew’s, Ron was a reliable and faithful presence, coming to church whenever he was physically able, stationed back there in his wheelchair, where I would bring him Holy Communion. And before he became wheelchair-bound, even when he was in not-great health, Ron helped...

    In my meandering post from last night I theorized that the Left was using jim crow and the civil rights movement to initiate a process whereby the "unjust" laws of G-d would be superseded by the "just" secular laws of man. This is the root of the whole problem. Because there never was, is not now, and never will be an objective secular standard of morality/ethics/justice. Any system created by people is going to be arbitrary. Furthermore, the very purpose of morality/ethics/justice is submission to the Divine Will. Any system which by-passes this for mere utilitarian results is missing the...

    (To start out, what if there were a God, and He didn't believe in YOU?) Oh, Terrific, so you KNOW that's not true, and the God of your making would never do such a thing, and anyone who would consider the possibility needs a tinfoil hat transplant, they are so crazy. Except that, often, the God of history and eternity doesn't do things especially to avoid offending our delicate sensibilities. Often when I punish my children, they don't even know about the punishment. It's because when I reward them, it isn't to teach them a lesson, it's because some virtuous...

    I live what many would call the American Dream. Not only do I fly Old Glory from the front porch of the house I own, I own my own small business as well. I am a married man and father who serves his church regularly in a leadership position. I also sit on the board of a local school where my children attend. On top of all of that, I serve my country in the military reserves. I own guns, live in the Bible belt, and grew up without social media but am young enough to follow them and appreciate...

    Tell It Not in Gath Posted onMonday, January 18, 2021 by Douglas WilsonIntroduction There is little doubt in my mind that America is currently being chastised by the Lord, and He must have sent a great angel of frenzy upon us to do it. One of the evidences of such chastisement is that a goodly number of our leading lights and solons appear to have lost their minds. And in addition to all the confusions involved with that, the people generally are surging this way and that, and feelings run high, or hot, or both, and a lot of crazy...

    I believe that there is a real possibility that Wednesday, January 20, 2021, God might offer to Trump a type of PALM SUNDAY, which will help to spiritually wake up and lead back to God many people. But shortly afterwards there will be the CRUCIFIXION. Those who pray and live their prayer (“THY will be done”, not “MY will be done”), will receive the grace of final perseverance in this period of the purification of the Church (CCC 675-677), and of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) so as to arrive to the eternal RESURRECTION (Zech 13:7-9).

    Dear friends, The Mass Media is highly controlled by the elite of the world, as well as the Social Media, which has recently shut down Trump in just about all communications. So I hope we can at least continue to communicate with each other and offer the whole truth by Email, at least for now, even though many email marketing services are clamping down on those who try to warn people of what is really going on today in the world and in the Church. “Another email marketing service stops emails from Republicans, Trump campaign” (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/another-email-marketing-service-stops-emails-from-republicans-trump-campaign).

    stmatthewbt.org ^ | January 17, 2021 | The Rev. Charles Henrickson
    “Leading a Chaste and Decent Life” (1 Corinthians 6:12-20) Have you seen the January issue of the Lutheran Witness? On the cover it has a quote from Luther’s Explanation of the Sixth Commandment. It says: “We should fear and love God so that we lead a chaste and decent life.” And that’s the theme of the issue: The articles are on how we as Christians should lead a chaste and decent life in what we say and do. And so, when I looked at the Scripture readings coming up for today, I thought, “Wow, the Epistle lesson ties right in...
  • Joe Biden’s First Day In Office Will Take A Shot At God By Enacting Legislation To Officially Remove The Biblical Two Genders And Sign The Equality Act

    President-elect Joe Biden vowed to his supporters that, on his first day in office, he will begin removing any legal recognition of the two sexes by adopting pro-transgender polices. Joe Biden wants America to know that right from day one of his brief rule as president, he will no longer put up with any of this ‘two genders’ nonsense that the bible tells us God created back in Genesis. His first official act will be to restore Obama-era polices that provide for things like men in dresses being allowed to be in the ladies room at the same time as...

    I have never seen as much anger in the United States as I am seeing right now, and that greatly saddens me. No matter what happens, we should always love one another. Unfortunately, most Americans on both sides of the political spectrum are seething with hate right now. Leading up to the election in November, the left and the right were primarily attacking each other with angry words, but now the level of physical violence that we are witnessing is extremely alarming. The violence at the U.S. Capitol was just another example of the violence that stretched all throughout 2020...

    The film begins in Lafayette Indiana, where a young man by the name of Jeremy Camp (KJ Apa) heads to Calvary Chapel College in Murrieta, California. The first night he gets settled in, Jeremy goes to a Christian concert to see a Canadian band called “The Kry”, and meets its lead singer, Jean-Luc Lagoie (Nathan Parsons). Jeremy asks Jean-Luc how to make it. Jean-Luc tells Camp that “it’s not about making it. It’s about what our songs give people.” Then he asks Camp, “So what do you want to give people?” This question forces Camp to see where his priorities...

    A faith-based film that is targeted to doubters has earned some substantial awards at film festivals is now available for the public to watch. Gun And A Hotel Bible is seeking to break ground in untraditional way as a Christian movie. This movie definitely doesn’t preach to the choir. Rather than mimicking stories of people who are strong in their faith, this one is intended for those people who have more questions than answers about religion.

    Second to Israel, the United States of America has been the greatest nation-gift from God to this lost and dying world. It was founded on righteous principles of government from God’s Word, and reliance on the Lord by men who knew that our true rights and freedoms are given only by God, not governments of corruptible men.Over the last century, ever more quickly, our nation spiraled down and down into greater and greater sin and depravity, but God was so merciful and patient with us, holding back the destruction we deserve because of our terrible affronts to Him—the innocent, pre-born...

    “The Baptism with Our Lord” (Mark 1:4-11; Romans 6:1-11) Today we celebrate the Baptism of Our Lord. On Wednesday we celebrated the Epiphany of Our Lord. That makes today the First Sunday after the Epiphany. And that means that today, as we do every year on this Sunday, we hear an account of Jesus being baptized, whether from Matthew, Mark, or Luke. This year it’s the account from Mark. And Mark says, “In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.” And you say, “OK, so Jesus got baptized. Why is that...

    It’s a hard time to be a Christian. It’s even harder to be a Christian in Hollywood, but former “Everybody Loves Raymond” star Patricia Heaton holds on tight to her faith and, even now amid the chaos, reminds us all of what’s important. Christians are regularly under attack online and in the real world. Many Christians share their faith with others. Others hesitate to be so open.
