On Friday, in an act of what can only be described as dereliction, the Supreme Court of the United States refused to hear the case of Arlene’s Flowers, Inc. vs. Washington. In refusing to hear this case, the Court has failed to bring clarity to a situation it ultimately created.

In this 3 Part series (so far at least) Dr. Tom Nettles, uses his over 40 years experience as a historical theologian to look at the current cultural trend of the “Cancel Culture.” He does so from a Biblical and SBC point of view, I feel pointing out the unbiblical and dangerous path this is leading the Nation and many evangelical down. – Mike
There is One Lawgiver: Reflections on the Cancel Culture
The suggestion has been made that we should say farewell to Jonathan Edwards in light of his having purchased a slave named Venus. A serious call also has been issued to remove memorabilia of James P. Boyce and the three men who helped found the first Southern Baptist Seminary. Those suggestions prompted a line of thought about our aptitude to dismiss the value of brothers and sisters in Christ.
It is not very easy—in fact, it is not possible—to say “farewell” to any person in the history of the world. God has created them all and each will have an eternity immediately proceeding from God’s judgment—his perfectly impartial, absolutely just judgment in which every mouth will be stopped and the whole world held guilty before God (Romans 3:19, 23). Only those who by faith have been united with Jesus Christ in his perfect righteousness culminating in his propitiatory death will be granted, by grace, eternal life. The rest will depart into eternal torment with the devil and his angels. Seeing that an eternity awaits every person in which each will be a vessel of glory either of justice and wrath or justice and grace, we cannot wish them away. Seeing that in sin there is no difference, we cannot point to others and imply by our attempt to dismiss them, “I am better than they.”…
Answer: Sexism is one gender, usually male, having dominance over the other gender, usually female. The Bible contains many references to women that, to our modern mindset, sound discriminatory towards women. But we have to remember that when the Bible describes an action, it does not necessarily mean that the Bible endorses that action. The Bible describes men treating women as little more than property, but that does not mean God approves of that action. The Bible is far more focused on reforming our souls than our societies. God knows that a changed heart will result in a changed behavior…
Over and above evangelism and discipleship, nearly half of churchgoing young adults—say they want missionaries “to save lives.”
Christians under 35 are almost twice as likely as older believers to judge that missionaries should never use donations as their source of income.
The blending of business and social good has become common, and even expected, especially among younger generations. Millennial Christians show significant enthusiasm for nontraditional missionary roles like entrepreneurs, artists, and business leaders.
And stay tuned next week for the full report, which includes:
•What young people value about missions and what they want to change •10 ministry questions the Church must answer with the next generation •Profiles of current missionaries in various parts of the world •Perspectives from people connected to missions in different ways (parents, sending organizations, former missionaries) •And much more! Until then!
Recently I have seen a H U G E increase in the number of folks posting “I hate America” on social media.
Listen, no one claims this is utopia, then again anyone who thinks we can have that short of Heaven, is either delusional or doing copious amounts of drugs. Those of us who are old enough to have studied U.S. History, World History (NOT social studies) and lived through the age of communist nuclear threat; understand America is by and far the greatest Nation on earth.
So to those who hate America, I have but two messages for you:
1) I will continue to pray for you
2) I will help you pack (is China, Cuba Russia or Venezuela your preference?)
Of course there is a third option we can stop whining about the ills of America and start doing something CONSTRUCTIVE and not DESTRUCTIVE together to fix them. That of course is just one man’s opinion.
