Luther Quote


to which satan is a deadly enemy.”

Table Talk, p.189


Fake news? Of course. What we’ve seen isn’t the first, nor will it be the last. Sadly, I can’t tell you exactly where to learn real “secular news.” This world may not have such a source. Have we had fake “good news”? Afraid so. Some pulpits have not told it “like-it-is” about the Love of God and the Wrath of God. Gladly, I can tell you EXACTLY where to learn real GOOD NEWS. It’s found in the Bible. You can read it for yourself. Any day. At your speed. In your living room. That’s good news about the GOOD NEWS!




You may be the biggest bloke on the block,

With name that tingles on tongues by the ton;

Convinced your name will ever be known –

Look at all the “seed” you’ve sown.

. . .

Time brings fade; a decade is a long clock.

Who’ll known your name later on, sadly, no one.

Sin brings death. One of the better Scriptural arguments against evilution is that this extremely, shallow theory requires millions of deaths before “man turns into man.” There was no death till there was sin. “Ye shall not surely die” (Gen 3.4) was a LIE! Death began in the Edenic garden, is currently spread across the face if the earth, and will continue till the Lord returns. Stop believing ANY/every form of evolution.

“…A certain kind of poetry

seems to go with a certain kind of theology.”

– C. S. Lewis, from his REFLECTIONS on the PSALMS


One of the mildest rebukes for a student/child is, “Your work is unacceptable.” And, perhaps, the least commendation is, “Your work is acceptable.” The psalmist seems to be satisfied with the least of God’s commendations (“…be acceptable in thy sight O Lord…” Psa19.14). I concur. God and His measurements are so very high, I’m happy if my mortal, stumbling steps are “acceptable.”

Joh 1. 4

“In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”


1, 4 2 4 miles – the number that rolled under our trusty Subaru Forester between pull-out & return last PM. All safe. Most on dry pavement. Many scenic (southern OH, WV, VA, TN, KY). An interesting “Wedding in the Woods” under the leafy roof/ceiling of a VA forest. Pretty bride (what else can I say, she’s a granddaughter J) and hard working, capable groom (Welcome to the family Gary.); wish BOTH well! Enjoyed staying with Bill/Vonda. Got to see all our kids, their kids, & 1 great grand. Got to tour Andrew’s home & small farm, see Lincoln’s high school classrooms, & visit Moma Stel (m-i-l). GLAD to be home!
