Flotsam & Jetsam (10/2)

What Would Jesus Legislate? – “Biblical charity does not employ government power and force, but rather relies on government’s limited role of protection of private property and enforcement of private contracts. These two things – based on the eighth and ninth commandments – make up fundamental measures of law in the kingdom of heaven.”

A Hymn For When Life is Not Terrific – Shared by Paul Levy at Reformation 21.

Abortion Methods: An Overview – Disturbing but informative. I wonder: if more people had a better understanding of the actual procedure, would they continue to support it so blithely?

The Voices Inside My Head – From Kim Shay: “Just as we are limited audibly to how we hear ourselves, there are times we have an impairment to how we perceive how our words have come out.  They sound find to us, but in reality, if we could hear from the outside, the words were unkind, harsh, sarcastic, and condescending.  We, however, are oblivious.”

The Greatest Drama Ever Staged is the Official Creed of Christendom – Awesome.

The Best Thing – It’s your weekly dose of Spurgeon. Drink up! “If young men would read their Bibles more, they would not be so easily turned aside as they now are.”

I’m Spiritual, But Not Religious – Alan Miller says its a cop-out. And I heartily agree.

“Well, art is art, isn’t it? Still, on the other hand, water is water! And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now, uh… now you tell me what you know.” – Groucho Marx

  1. I wish I’d had your abortion link a few days ago. A group of young people on G+ were trying to ‘trend’ the term “Voteprolife”, and were absolutely flooding the site with related posts. I know that blog post would have been really popular and reshared dozens of times. The trend spree is on hiatus until the fifth, but I shared it today, and will reshare it then. :D

    I love the Groucho Marx quote, too. He was hilarious, at least what I’ve heard of him. :D Hee hee!!

  2. Ah yes, “I am spiritual but not religious”. This is nothing more than self-righteous baloney. Of course they are religious. Religion is nothing more than a set of beliefs and they have their beliefs – therefore they are religious. What they are trying to say is that they are against organized religion as they see it. They prefer non-organized self-ism, the worship of self. (Although, truth be told, if they could organize a group of other people to worship them too, they probably would not be against organized religion!)
