The ESV & The Doctrine of the Virgin Birth

In the Greek text, Luke 2:33 reads: καὶ ἦν ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ θαυμάζοντες ἐπὶ τοῖς λαλουμένοις περὶ αὐτοῦ· The transliteration literally reads thusly: And Joseph was marveling, also His mother, at the things being said concerning Him.

It is the aim of our university system, the NEA and the whole public school system. It is seen in the radical work of environmentalists with their doomsday global warming power-play to enslave […]

Carol of the Bells

Wow. This was a tough decision. Do I stay serious all day long and act, write like I’ve been sucking on green persimmons? You know, ‘long-faced religion’? Or, do I cut loose just the least little bit? As a former drummer (long ago), I kinda like it. Mannheim Steamroller (cover). Roll drums…..

Christmas Books

If you know me, you know I love books. Old ones. Ones written by dead guys…and a very, very, very few live ones. But…if you were going to recommend a book, as a gift, to one that you loved for (not necessarily about) Christmas, what would it be? You tell us your recommendation(s), and we’ll […]
