Saturday Sweets

I'm not a big sweets fan, but I do have a definite weakness for Coca Cola. Halloween always makes me think of candy (I grew up during the satanist-laced-candy scares of the 1980s, so I'm happy I'm not paranoid over it). Above is a picture of Haribo's Happy-Cola Gummi Candies. Why don’t more companies make cola flavored candy? Am I in a small minority of people that likes the flavor?

Here's a list of the cola-flavored candies I've enjoyed to date.

I'm sure I missed some. I had two or three really lovely ones in London...but what can't you get there?

The Gospel Recovered

Cindy Jacobs (whom I blogged about yesterday) calls her latest book Reformation Manifesto (the "new apostolic movement" often sees itself in line with a new Reformation - which is why they say the older churches oppose them).

But I'm giving a shout out to the REAL Reformation the Church continually needs.



Here's to 491 years of the Gospel recovered!

And here's "the classic"



BLESSED REFORMATION DAY!!!

Exodus 32 to CBN

Self-appointed "prophet" and dubiously-doctored Cindy Jacobs recently announced on CBN that she had a vision - a word from God Almighty - that Christians needed to go to New York City and "pull down the strongman" that was blighting our economy.
The Lord further said, “October 29 was Black Tuesday, the day the stock market crashed, and Satan wants to do it again.” We must be proactive in prayer. At the beginning of the year many intercessors began to hear from the Lord that without divine intervention, a major shaking was coming to Wall Street. This would spread until there were food shortages....On September 29 last month, the US stock market went down 777 points in one day. Cindy says it was no coincidence that this happened on the first day of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah.
Okay... While I disagree that God Rosh Hashanah had anything to do with it (other than, maybe, the smartest financiers in NYC were at Synagogue that day), I'm cool with her asking people to pray. I pray for the nation every day - and for people caught up in this economy. Christians are to pray for the welfare of all, and especially their country and its leaders.

But I think Cindy makes some SERIOUS missteps. First, she has this charismaniac idea of territorial spirits - a larger part of a mistaken notion of Spiritual Warfare as something other than sanctification. Here's what she asked people to do:
“We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the 'Lion’s Market,' or God’s control over the economic systems,” she said. “While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.”


When people that claim to follow God start getting around brazen cattle, I get nervous.


Here's some video of them singing and marching around the bull.

Dancing and singing isn't enough...they even "lay hands" on the thing!



I'll bet these folks know every verse about dreaded sexual sins. I just wonder if they've ever stopped to read Exodus 32.

I'm not waiting for Moses (or Charlton Heston) to come down the mountain and toss stone tablets at them.

But the idolatry police are about to throw the book at'em!!!

This is what happens when we let orthodoxy become something we "used to do." This is what happens when we're so concerned that everyone's spiritual experience become celebrated that we refuse to be biblically discerning for fear of being "critical." We like to think it's something that only "the left" does...but there's so much of it on the right, too.

With "Christianity" like this, America deserves any and every plague God throws at us.

Irving Norman had the right idea...

Don't Forget To Set Your Clocks Back

Obamanomics

Obama promises to provide openness in his presidential administration. Yet we don't have a real copy of his birth certificate, his health records are hidden, his academic records at Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard Law are all closed (including his thesis).

So much for openness.

So to get an idea of what he means when he says "spread the wealth" let's hear what he's said in the past:



Did you catch that?
  • Supreme Court is too bound by the U. S. Constitution.
  • We need to make legislative and administrative changes to force redistribution of wealth.
  • It's not a question of if/whether, but HOW!!!
Did you expect anything less from the most liberal senator to run for president?

I'm tingling like Chris Matthews...but I think it's actually a chill running up my spine!

Biden Balks

Looks like somebody at WFTV Orlando didn't get the MainStreamMedia Memo about soft-ball questions only to Obama / Biden.



Quoth the Obama campaign: "We are not amused!"

How dare they question The One or His Mouthpiece....

YES WE CANnula

Before you trust Obama with the military and economic power of this country, you might want to ask what he does with..."bio-hazardous material."



Barack Obama never met an abortion bill he didn't like.

If you want to work against abortion on multiple fronts, I am with you. Education, economics, and - most importantly - changing the culture. Let's get it done.

But don't tell me your pro-choice when you have no desire to extend the protection of life to these babies born alive. Opponents of the Hyde Amendment and proponents of unrestricted access to abortion in all terms (which not even Europe can swallow) are actually pro-abortion.
