Foxfier Popped Out A Baby

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/11/13

As some of you know, Foxfier sometimes cross-posts over here. She has recently temporarily stopped posting on her site, due to a medical situation: She has caused Washington state to be one girl more populous. And she did it the hard way. I suspect 18 years from now, there will be a new squid.

A Quote To Remember

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/11/13

“Freedom has many difficulties and democracy is not perfect. But we have never had to put a wall up to keep our people in, to prevent them from leaving us.”

— John Fitzgerald Kennedy, in a speech at the Berlin Wall.

Onward Christian . . . Pacifists?

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/11/13

If you’re a Christian, great! If you’re a pacifist, well, that’s your choice. If you’re a Christian Pacifist, that’s between you and Providence. But don’t declare Christianity is aligned with pacifism. Such is not the case.

Jesus Himself told people to arm themselves. He went to far as to say if they didn’t have a specific weapon used in modern-day (at that time) warfare, they should suffer from the weather in order to obtain such a weapon. Check it out. It’s in there (to borrow from an old spaghetti sauce commercial). So, if Jesus, who declared “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” said to people to arm themselves with weapons used in modern warfare in that time, there is no possible way that He was a pacifist.

Those of you who are pacifists need to thank those who girded themselves with modern-day swords, shields, breastplates and went into physical battle to preserve your freedom, else you would be either serfs, slaves or non-existent today.

Again, there is no doctrine in the Bible where pacifism fits. Nothing in the Old Testament, which is the “mirror” nor in the New Testament, which is the “comb.” Much of both make heavy use of militaristic language, which is the antithesis to pacifism. Be a pacifist all you want, but don’t claim that’s what Christianity is about, because it isn’t.
