Warfield Makes the Cut

Joe Carter has published a list in First Things of the 50 most influential religious figures in American history.  B. B. Warfield, Charles Hodge, Jonathan Edwards and Francis Schaeffer make the list.  But so do Charles Finney, Joseph Smith, L. Ron Hubbard and Madalyn Murray O'Hair.  50 Most Influential

Lee Irons is doing a very helpful series on Paul and "righteousness" terminology--specifically Paul's supposed dependence upon the Dead Sea Scrolls.  You can find the first in the series here:  Paul and the DSS

Wes Bredenhof explains why CanRC folk see things a bit differently than their URCNA brethren when it comes to the Nine Points of Synod Scheuerville.  Pastor Bredenhof is doing a yeoman's work in explaining the history of the CanRC on issues like this.  We can't have federative unity until we are on the same page.  This is a start.  You can read about it here:  Schilder and the Nine Points and here:  The Liberation and the Nine Points

Obama's "stimulus" package cost taxpayers more than Bush's Iraq War!  And it certainly didn't accomplish as much.  When will Congress stop this wreckless spending at home and abroad?  I know, that was a dumb question . . .  Here's the link, Quit Spending!   Last time I saw the figures, my share of the national debt was up to $44,000.00 and rising.

Under the "I will fix the country" and "Yes we can" (copied from the old California Angels) guy, things are getting worse by the minute.

He doesn't look like a president, talk like a president, dress like a president, or even walk like a president.

He makes President Jimmuh look better than George Washington.

So... Joel Osteen didn't make the cut... so much for mega______anity (please note the missing Christ).

Is that $44,000 adjusted for your tax bracket?

If you really want your head to spin, watch this for a few minutes:

I like the neologism you have created: "wreckless spending"
