Sadness in Christian Conversation

The conversation around abortion deeply saddens me. Christians have allowed secular, political talking points to guide a deeply theological conversation. This is not a conversation about individual “rights” or laws written by men. This is a conversation about the very nature of God and his creation. God became man “and dwelt among us.” The Incarnation and Resurrection change everything. Lord, have mercy!

“Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

The abortion conversation saddens me. Christians have allowed secular arguments to guide the theological. It is not about individual “rights” or the laws of men. It is about the very nature of God. God became man! The Incarnation and Resurrection change everything.

Turns out our system of government is a federal republic. Not sure why some people are shocked by this.

I’m getting a little misty-eyed thinking about how amazing it was taking my little boy to the game today. I’m not a perfect father, but I’m so happy I get to father him. I pray he always knows how beloved he is to me.

No one else I’d rather share the opening game with. ⚽️

So, I’ve been doing some searching on squirrel repellent products recently which, somehow, has convinced the algorithm that I need a chicken xylophone. 🤷‍♂️

Given world events it’s a bit dampened, but I am still excited to see Nashville SC back on the pitch tonight. #todosunidos

So, at this point if we’ve been going to church, Bible studies, school, and ballet we’ve totally had COVID, right? We’ve been sick a few times, but always tested negative. 3/5 are vaxed, so I assume we just had false negatives. 🤷‍♂️

”That boy that I like looks like Oliver, but I still like him.”

(Oliver is her brother.)

Oliver: “Alexa, play Street Sweeper by Blippi.”

Alexa: “Playing Sweet Stripper.”

This ATS survey is difficult. It’s like, for an Anglican, pretty darn conservative. From a Baptist or Evangelical perspective? Moderate to progressive?

How, after over a decade in Nashville, am I just now finding out about AM 760, The Gospel?!?! Gospel music and good preaching? For free! On the radio?!?

Okay, hive mind. Wife and I trying to cut out pre-packaged lunches. What are some healthy lunches that have no prep or can be prepped in advance?

I was surprised to see this because I assumed with all the info she collects on me that Alexa knew I worked from home.

Wow. Just heard a country song at the Walgreens that sounds like a Pelagian creed. It rolls of a bunch of “I believes”, one of which is “I believe most people are good.” Yikes!

Merry Christmas! 🌟 👼 👼 👼 🐑 🐑 👶🏻 May the next twelve days be full of the wonder and joy of God becoming man for our sake.

Can it get more 🔥 🔥 🔥 than Revelation 16 followed by the Benedictus? — God judges our sin and pours his wrath upon injustice. This is good news!

Nothing to see here. Move along. Just a grown man tearing up at cartoon farm animals kneeling before Jesus. — The Star gets me every time!
