Lenten Update

I meant to get this post up earlier, but alas, I have been very busy “in the real world.” This Lent I am not going to opt out of the ‘sphere, however, I will likely have a small presence. This … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- #140

I was reading Cane Caldo’s most recent post this week, and I immediately thought of this passage from First Timothy: 8 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it legitimately. 9 This means understanding that the law is … Continue reading

Incentive V. Motive Force

I recommend that my readers, if they haven’t already, read Dalrock’s two most recent posts: “Headship makes all the difference” and “Incentives matter.” There is an important point or clarification that I think should be made here, especially with regards … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- #139

Today’s post will have no central theme. Rather, I will feature some scripture which caught my attention in the last few weeks. First up is a verse from Proverbs 31: She girds herself with strength, and makes her arms strong. … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- #138

I have a post in the works (at least the workshop of my mind), and this post is tied to it. There is an obvious theme here which ties to the future post, which was prompted by a recent comment. … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- # 137

Today (and tonight) is a period of expectation. Over two thousand years ago the People of God were awaiting the Messiah. Only the Savior they were expecting was not the one God was sending- the One they needed. They were … Continue reading

May The Farce Be With You

I made the mistake of seeing the new “Star Wars” movie this weekend. Oops. TLDR version for my readers: don’t watch it. ****Spoilers**** [Minor ones, not that it really matters much]   ****Spoilers**** So what made the movie awful? Lets … Continue reading

Saturday Saints- #136

Today’s post will be a bit different from the previous ways I’ve run this series. Instead of just featuring a different saint every time, going in alphabetical order A-Z, I will focus on the writings of the saints. Today’s saint … Continue reading

Toxic Femininity

These days we hear plenty about so called “Toxic Masculinity.” The phrase is naturally enough a ruse- the whole point of it is to tar all masculinity as toxic. Its goal is nothing more and nothing less than to eradicate … Continue reading

How Hard Is It To Miss The Point?

This post is a response to Dalrock’s latest, Missing the point is hard work. In that post Dalrock pokes fun at a certain Trevin Wax of the Gospel Coalition. Mr Wax apparently was stupefied as to why young girls were … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- #135

Today’s post is inspired by this recent post over at Zippy’s. A major point of discussion in the comments is Christian (in that particular context Catholic Christian) heroism. I want to move this post out of a narrow Catholic context … Continue reading

When Compassion Becomes Divorced From Reality

Reader Michael K alerted me to this this article yesterday, and I thought it was worth remarking on. The tagline is “Beware of false compassion in implementing Amoris Laetitia.” Its not long, but I won’t quote the whole piece. Instead, … Continue reading

Power And Control

Zippy has a new post up which demands a follow-up: With great power comes great incontinence. Short and to the point, I am tempted to repeat all of it. Instead I will merely quote what I see as the key … Continue reading

Selected Sunday Scriptures- #134

So I guess there was something of a debate over at Dalrock because of this post. Scott wrote his own thoughts about it over here. I’ve got a few thoughts of my own, but they are tied to scripture- hence … Continue reading

Der Kommissar

Scott is once again lamenting the current state of affairs in our society, in particular the madness of the “Watermelon purge.” The part that caught my attention is this: They have no idea the purging pogrom that is coming if … Continue reading
