Luther and more

Luther Quote

“…Truth is a hateful thing;

he that, in these times, speaks the truth, procures hatred.”

Table Talk, p.177


Churchill’s “History is written by the victors,” has detractors but few “losers” have the privacy to write or resources to publish “their side.” It would seem that much “history” (American/world) is the “official” story, i.e. story officials want you to accept. If history is your interest you’ve a challenge to peel back this country’s account, that ethnic groups tales, & the religious clique’s lines & find the genuine. It may actually be better to be a “little historically illiterate” as to parrot to your children (blood or classroom) stories which have more “sanction” than reality.

I’m rich in wealth that banks can’t hold;

I’m rich in treasures that do not jingle or fold.

Grandsons and granddaughters * beat gold;

They’re your child’s child and also heaven’s mold.

Parents who’re themselves divorce/remarried, D/R (and defend their deed) shouldn’t be surprised when a child also fails to keep his “till-death-do-us-part” promise. Parents whose marriage is legit but who show acceptance for D/R likewise should not be shocked when “Jr.” leaves his wife for another. When a parent has the strongest of stands against divorce/remarriage there’s no guarantee their children will not fall into this horrible trap, but it may be a small deterrent.

“…That man that takes up religion for the world

will throw away religion for the world.”

– John Bunyan, Pilgrim’s Progress


Isa 38. 8

“Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz,

ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down.”


“…Science falsely so called” (Paul distinctly warns his spiritual son about it, 1Ti 6.20.) has painted itself as either knowing the answers or supposedly seeking them. As long as you and I believe their little theories they are empowered. When we awaken to purposeful deception and spoof them, they lose their “authority” and are seen as the foolish guys they really are. T*H*I*N*K.
