Quotes from Old Movies

Here are a couple quotes from some old movies I have been watching lately.   Yes, I am talking black and white.      Here they are:

It’s a union clock.  It strikes any old time.

I’d trust a lunatic before a woman, they are more reliable.

The Suicide of a Denomination (PCUSA)

Posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 7:40:49 AM by Dr. Scarpetta

Gone is the standard for ordination that requires pastors, ‘to live either in fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman, or chastity in singleness.’

Conservatives within the denomination had narrowly, but successfully resisted similar efforts over the past 15 years, but the diminished and beleaguered traditionalists lost the 87th and 88th presbyteries in last month’s effort to change the constitution.

“Progressives” had reached the needed majority and the constitution has been amended to allow for ordination of non-celibate gays and lesbians.

For centuries, the Presbyterian Church stood on the proud heritage and legacy of men like John Knox who fearlessly and valiantly stood for the truth of scripture.

Today, the modern Presbyterian Church (USA) (also “PCUSA”) bears little resemblance to its noble ancestry.

The PCUSA has showed a constant, measurable decline for at least 40 continuous years. At the current rate, the PCUSA will be extinct in another 40 years.

Year after year, as their attendance numbers declined, they have held their annual gathering to try to diagnose the disease.

A prescription that included a return to the simple teaching of scripture was desperately needed—a return to founding principles.

What we have witnessed instead is more liberalism, in larger doses. The more liberal the denomination has become, the faster it has declined.

And yet every year the cry is the same: “Let’s become more liberal and (in effect) deny more scripture!”

An Outrage

A street sign to honor some of the firefighters who were killed on 9/11 is being protested by atheists absolute jerks.  

Seven Brooklyn firefighters died on 9/11 and the city chose to honor them by renaming a street, “Seven in Heaven Way.”  

A group of New York City atheists is demanding that the city remove a street sign honoring seven firefighters killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks .

I Don’t Know

I don’t know why but I am so tired and unmotivated lately. I tend to take more naps than I used to and watch more TV – but I am not as fun and carefree as I used to be. But somehow we carry on.

PC(USA)

With the latest move of the PC(USA) to allow for the ordination of gay pastors there are many congregations who are worried that they will be forced to do/allow things that they know are biblically wrong (sinful). There is a meeting to take place at the end of August in Minneapolis Minn to discuss this problem. I am thinking that I will not attend as it is out of my comfort zone – but I do think that the PC(USA) has outlived it’s usefullness.
