GOD'S INVASION FORCE

As usual, Doug Wilson says it best...

"This dark planet had been captured by the evil one, and all its walls and turrets were bristling with all the armaments that the principalities and powers could muster. In the center of that city, in the midst of that camp, in the heart of that militant darkness, God sent His champion. He sent a baby."

Merry Christmas!

HEADING BACK TO GENESIS?




 The old year wanes and the start of a new year beckons (yes I know there is still a little something to come first) and for some of you that means that you will shortly be completing your sojourn through the entire sixty-six books of the Bible.

 Perhaps at this very moment you are being mystified by the Book of Revelation for the 24th straight year in a row and are preparing thereafter to begin your odyssey anew back in Genesis.

All sixty-six books in twelve months.

Perhaps you’ve done this every year since you got saved. Perhaps this was what some well-meaning soul told you twenty years ago and so you have stuck with it ever since.

ON WHITE, BLACK, AND A RED MIST



 Media traffic across the pond continues to be dominated by the Grand Jury verdict in the tragic death of Eric Garner (video here but be advised it contains distressing scenes).  

 Following hard on the heels of the decision not to arraign in the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, it has served to ramp up the heat under America’s always-simmering race cauldron.

 Standing at a distance I am always struck by how much of a trauma race seems to represent to the American psyche compared to here in the UK.
