Friday July 3rd – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

        Junior High humor sliding over into barroom humor, hits that sniggley little piece of newly-minted juvenile still somewhere in most of us. I think George Carlin and his ‘7 Words You Can’t Say on TV’ broke the comedy ice and allowed the less talented an outlet.

        Comedians like Lenny Bruce, Moms Mabley, Red Fox and their ilk broke the ice and paved the way for what we have now. If you go back and listen to their works you can hear the stirrings of modern ‘comedy’ and, using modern standards, be surprised that they ever were arrested or censored for obscenity.

        They, probably the script writers, have taken the fun out of comedy, replacing it with an edginess that just isn’t funny. Carol Burnett and crew and Johnny Carson understood humor. The roasts were fun too, the wonderful ethnic jokes where people could laugh at themselves and others without overtones of malice. Now we have to rely on word play and cartoons of humanized animals for a chuckle because comedy is reduced to cynicism sarcasm and irony.

      You can still watch it via antenna TV or Pluto and I believe HULU and others still run it. Just like Johnny Carson which can still be watched along with Dean Martin roasts which injects racial humor which people at one time laughed at because it went both ways and is still funny.
      Dean Martin calling Jimmy JJ walker a black swizzle stick and watching Jimmy JJ Walker crack up over it would not be tolerated now.

    Home Keepers

    By Pastor Ricky Kurth

    In Paul’s letter to Titus, he gave the young man some instructions to pass on to “aged women” (Titus 2:1-3). Whenever I read these verses while preaching, I always explain to my congregation that I’ll teach Paul’s instructions, “even though we don’t have any aged women in our church.” This policy has always made me very popular with the aged women in our church!

    One of the things Paul tells aged women to do is to “teach…young women” with “husbands” and “children” to be “keepers at home” (vs. 4,5). Since there is a lot of controversy about the exact meaning of that phrase, in an earlier edition of Two Minutes I shared some examples of how that word keeper is used in Scripture, to try to determine what “keepers at home” might mean.

    For instance, the Bible talks about the doorkeepers of the temple (Ps. 84: 10). We discussed some of the Bible duties of doorkeepers, and another is found in II Kings 23:4:

    “And the king commanded… the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels that were made for Baal…”

    Doorkeepers in the temple were commanded by the king to expel idolatry from God’s home. From this example I think it is safe to extrapolate and say that Christian moms should guard the temple of their homes against idolatry as well. Now you might think that there is little danger of idolatry rearing it’s ugly head in a Christian home, but remember that the Apostle Paul says that “covetousness…is idolatry” (Col. 3:5). If you’re a Christian mom, and you’ve never witnessed any covetousness in your home among your children, you are a fortunate mom indeed! Most moms have to work hard to keep their children from the pitfalls of always wanting things.

    But the “the vessels that were made for Baal” in the temple didn’t just promote idolatry, they also promoted false doctrine. So I would further submit that it is the job of the door keepers of the Christian home to keep the influences of false doctrine out of the home. Moms need to be careful about the kinds of religious programming they allow to enter their homes via the radio, television and internet, etc. Kids might not seem to be paying attention to the words of the programs you listen to, but do you remember what the Bible says about how children learn?

    “Whom shall He teach knowledge? and whom shall He make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts. For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:9,10).

    Did you ever wonder why those verses repeat themselves so much? It is because children learn by constant repetition. And if a mom is constantly listening to errant Bible teachers, her children are learning error—line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little and there a little. Christian mom, you are your children’s first line of defense against unsound doctrine.

    Finally, there is yet another kind of keeper mentioned in Scripture, the “keeper of the wardrobe” (II Kings 22:14). Moms are in charge of providing suitable clothing for their children (Prov. 31:21)—and then there’s the endless job of washing and ironing the wardrobe!

    But there is more to being the keeper of the wardrobe than this. Christian moms must see that daughters learn to dress like young ladies, and boys learn to dress like young men. This might not seem very important on the surface, but stop for a minute and consider how the world around us is pushing our society toward what they call a “gender neutral” status. In the face of this onslaught of evil, could anything be more important than for moms to be “keepers of the wardrobe.”

    As you can see, being “keepers at home” involves far more than just housekeeping. A mom who is keeping a Christian home is standing firm on the front line of the battle for the minds and hearts and souls of her children. And is there anything more important than that?

    Titus 2:1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
    2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
    3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
    4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
    5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.

    Psalm 84:10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

    2 Kings 23:4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.

    Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:

    Isaiah 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
    10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:

    2 Kings 22:14 So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor, and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess, the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas, keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the college;) and they communed with her.

      This is where many parents have failed miserably. I included fathers as well as mothers, although fathers are absent in far too many homes these days.

      Parents are afraid of being parents for fear of losing the respect of their children. It’s ironic because that’s exactly the result – disrespect- of being “buddies” with children. Structure and discipline can be mixed with genuine love and patience. But too many mistakenly substitute “tolerance” for patience. Huge error. Be intolerant of unacceptable, unChristian behavior, but be patient in helping children to learn those lessons.

        Amen to every word of your post. And, parents wonder why their children turn out the way they do and fall for every word the scammers on the left utter. Children look for strength, integrity, fairness, justice, protection, guidance, and moral values that do not change from parents. That is parental love. The same love that our Father in Heaven has for us.

      So many sermons quoted here at TCTH are heavily based on Paul. What are the takes of the authors on the scholarly dispute that has raged this last century or two over the authorship and dating of Paul’s Epistles?

      This wiki article currently has a summary of the confusing back and forth of this debate. (Way too many circular arguments on way too many sides.) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Authorship_of_the_Pauline_epistles

      I do note that by 170 AD, we have a Christian author complaining that an earlier heretic (140 AD?) had left off some of Paul’s letters. This implies acceptance of all Paul’s letters prior to the heretic. (Though even that is twisted into arguing that the heretic is the original author of most Pauline letters with the Church rewriting them all afterwards.)

      I don’t mind my inconsistency in asking, while using language that implies Paul’s authorship. But I do find it strange that the man who was so good at sweet talking rich broads into using their homes as churches and referencing them as leaders would write so harshly about women. Especially since Paul would rant and rave when James, Jesus’s brother would dominate the church from Jerusalem while Peter wouldn’t back up Paul. Such a change wouldn’t have gone over well either, yet we don’t have Paul’s reaction to the change.

      Also, our first Bishops are people whose credentials were that they were companions and successors to Peter, John and Paul. These claims were recorded circa 100 AD, well after Peter and Paul’s demise, and some time after John’s. While Peter and Paul were scheduled for execution, Jerusalem was still the center of Chritianity. Writing in the name of the deceased was a common practice back then. And providing instructions for the hierarchy that replaced Jerusalem and the apostles would be important and would need the blessings of the apostles to be accepted.

      I don’t mean to offend. It is clear above that Titus is taken as instructions from Paul. I am curious if these debates over his authorship had also been taken up.

        Peeling away the “interpretations” of scripture, and using strong hermeneutics, there are very limited ways to interpret Gods Word, Christian doctrine, as revealed to and taught by Paul.
        The dark forces of this world are very cunning in trying to subtly undermine the Scriptures’ meaning by weaving in interpretations that fit better to a worldly, human-centric perspective. But that’s precisely what Christ (through Paul) warned us about.
        And of course, creating conflict over the Scriptures’ meaning is exactly what Satan has been so successful in doing.

              Yes. Using historical analysis of biblical texts and related records Dilthey refuted the prevailing church doctrine that contemporary biblical pronouncements, being divinely inspired, carried the same meaning as pronouncements made in the time of Christ. He showed through careful examination that biblical utterances, while doubtless inspired by the gospels, were nonetheless influenced and contextualized by contemporary events. In terms of church doctrine, this was very big deal.

    Police friend sent me a piece – seems the Virginia legislature’s drafting legislation that will change assaulting a police officer from a felony to a misdemeanor. They’re also limiting the amount of force an officer can use in responding to an assault just to complete the ‘Open Season on Police’ scenario.

    Meanwhile NYC wants to cut $1-billion from NYPD funding and Los Angeles is looking to dump LAPD completely. Snake Plisskin, calling Snake Plisskin…

    Not to be undone, a couple of anti-Israeli groups here are lobbying PDs not to allow their officers to train with the Israeli police or military police as they say the Israelis are secretly teaching them techniques like the one that was used to kill George Floyd. This isn’t new, it’s been going on for years, I first heard of it nearly 10 years ago when US agencies that wanted Israel’s help in counter-terrorist operations and intelligence planning sent officers to train there. Anti-semitic, pro-Palestinian and some Moslem pressure groups started the BS narrative that Israel was teaching US police to be racist, profile innocent groups and use deadly force without justification. It was BS and the departments knew it but under heavy lobbying by the aforementioned groups politicians pressured their LEAs and a few states and local governments have stopped having anyone associated with their LEA from taking any training in Israel..The latest black killings by police, justified or not, have given them an ‘in’ to BLM groups (who seem willing to partner with anyone for The Cause), getting them to pick up the rhetoric that Israel’s police training is behind the dead black victims. It’s like no one CAIRs about the truth anymore.

    So…I said:
    I like the CTH Sign idea…. In my case, it would need to be LARGE since it will be staked on a raw Mtn side… Say 2-ft by 3-ft tall…. show the URL / Web address across the TOP 5″ or so…plain black on white… Show the picture of our Treehouse and wrap some words around it…use color if you can get it done cheaply….otherwise, use maybe 3 colors of ink on white background… To hold this up, it will take some “proper stakes”….not some cedar lath…OR, using fender washers, screw it to a major tree…USE a top and bottom “cross brace of some wood” to inhibit “folding” along the centerline… The material should be “plastic cor board or better….ie: WEATHER PROOF…

    Such a sign, done in bulk numbers, should only run about $15 or so each… but, they will need to be shipped into the “local areas” in a 10-20-30 each bundle — otherwise, they will get folded or bent in-transit……

    AND…there are a lot of “FREE NEWS/CLASSIFIED Papers across the USA… Penny Saver, Nickel’s Worth, etc… Ad’s are CHEAP to FREE… How about we all grab our local freebie’ and stick an AD in it for CTH with the URL…Maybe change it every month or so with something then current as an EYE GRABBER’ Title, etc… Consider, if you have the means, take a display ad on the front page or even the back…inside cover, etc… like a 1/8th or 1/4 page… Same thing…current item of interest for the GRAB TITLE….then picture of treehouse…an INVITE to join other conservatives…and perhaps change it monthly for more current title line?… This could cost $100 or more…IF you have the means…

    To tap into some rather cheap nationwide online ads….we would need to “form a radio club” or even just being/doinig some “exploring starting a radio club”….it would run on QTH.COM and EHAM.COM … for as little as $15/$20 per month…again…showing our URL and invite…

    Lots of ways to go here, as I see it… Time to bust the glass case and kick out the berseaker …. “Do you want to live forever” ??

    THE CONCENTRATION OF PERSONAL SIN

    “Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips.” Isaiah vi. 5

    When I get into the presence of God, I do not realize that I am a sinner in an indefinite sense; I realize the concentration of sin in a particular feature of my life. A man will say easily – “Oh, yes, I know I am a sinner”; but when he gets into the presence of God he cannot get off with that statement. The conviction is concentrated on – I am this; or that, or the other. This is always the sign that a man or woman is in the presence of God. There is never any vague sense of sin, but the concentration of sin in some personal particular. God begins by convicting us of the one thing fixed on in the mind that is prompted by His Spirit; if we will yield to His conviction on that point, He will lead us down to the great disposition of sin underneath. That is the way God always deals with us when we are consciously in His presence.

    This experience of the concentration of sin is true in the greatest and the least of saints as well as in the greatest and the least of sinners. When a man is on the first rung of the ladder of experience, he may say – I do not know where I have gone wrong; but the Spirit of God will point out some particular definite thing. The effect of the vision of the holiness of the Lord on Isaiah was to bring home to him that he was a man of unclean lips. “And he laid it upon my mouth, and said Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.” The cleansing fire had to be applied where the sin had been concentrated.

    1. How the Lord cursed the fig tree with its many leaves but no fruit, and the fig tree withered.
    2. How my life, with its many leaves – the cares, desires, and thoughts of the body – and with no spiritual fruit, may come under the same curse, if I do not set it right.

    “A student from a school in Taining, a county in the southeastern province of Fujian, told Bitter Winter that on December 20 “over 900 boys had to give their blood samples” to local police officers.

    “The school did all this without the consent of children or their guardians, and allowed the police to test their blood arbitrarily,” a parent of one of the students told Bitter Winter.

    “It is illegal and violates human rights. Teachers blindly followed officers’ orders, even though they are not professional medics. What should we do if our kids are infected with some virus? We also don’t know what is going to be done with these blood samples,” the concerned parent added.”

    Andrew Torba, Gab founder, interviewed today by Rick Wiles at Tru News. Podcast is around a half hour long, I just started listening a few minutes ago and I’ve learned that some CRYPTO companies BANNED GAB last year – even though those companies CLAIM to be all about supporting freedom/freedom of speech! I did not know that had happened! Andrew names them in the interview (if you’re a crypto user you might want to be aware of which companies are outright lying).

    Anyone know The backstory on this tweet?

    KW Miller For Congress (FL-18)
    @KwCongressional
    Be aware that Taylor Swift is very scared, perhaps more than anyone, about what is going to come out regarding Ghislaine Maxwell.

    Not a good day to be Swiftie.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    A prayer for Justice Kavanaugh and Gen. Flynn:

    Prayer to St. Michael

    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle;
    be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do you, O prince of the heavenly host,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan and the other evil spirits
    who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Scrolling through Sundance’s twitter feed, when coming upon a linked video the screen goes blank and says “this media could not be played” “reload” – but reloading doesn’t work.

    Curious, does anyone know if this is an internet wide outage of video, or selective? I have noticed all day that even directly going to you tube or any other sites with video the eternal rolling loop seems to take forever to finally let the video play.

      Might have just been my computer. Cleared cookies, restarted, things seem to be working fine. Sorry, so much going on these days suspicion became the first reaction, my bad.
