Ah, yes. It's funny because it's true... or it's sad because it's true. I'm not sure which.

Tonight I think +Annette Martin​ and I will watch some Daredevil and play some DC Comics Deck-Building Game. I sure didn't marry a nerd, but she's done wonders at assimilating.

Up front and to the point. Well said, +Frank Turk, Keeping up the good blog-fight while on hiatus. And I think the Team-Pyro Sock Puppet should become a regular staple on the blog.

You make a good point, however I don't think an argument can be made that the pizza place in question refused the purchase of goods to anyone. Rather, they refused to be a part of a certain type of ceremony.

That notwithstanding, sin == sin == sin. There are none righteous.

A little excerpt for the season. Borrowed from http://www.spurgeon.org/catechis.htm#Q14

Q. What is sin?
A. Sin is any want of conformity to, or transgression of the law of God (1 Jn. 3:4).


Q. Did all mankind fall in Adam's first transgression?
A. The covenant being made with Adam, not only for himself but for his posterity, all mankind descending from him by ordinary generation, sinned in him, and fell with him in his first transgression (1 Cor. 15:22; Rom. 5:12).


Q. Into what estate did the fall bring mankind?
A. The fall brought mankind into a state of sin and misery (Rom. 5:18).


Q. Wherein consists the sinfulness of that state whereinto man fell?
A. The sinfulness of that state whereinto man fell, consists in the guilt of Adam's first sin (Rom. 5:19), the want of original righteousness, (Rom. 3:10) and the corruption of his whole nature, which is commonly called original sin (Eph. 2:1; Ps. 51:5), together with all actual transgressions which proceed from it (Matt. 15:19).


Q. What is the misery of that state whereinto man fell?
A. All mankind, by their fall, lost communion with God (Gen. 3:8, 24), are under his wrath and curse (Eph. 2:3; Gal. 3:10), and so made liable to all the miseries in this life, to death itself, and to the pains of hell for ever (Rom. 6:23; Matt. 25:41).


Q. Did God leave all mankind to perish in the state of sin and misery?
A. God having, out of his good pleasure from all eternity, elected some to everlasting life (2 Thess. 2:13), did enter into a covenant of grace to deliver them out of the state of sin and misery, and to bring them into a state of salvation by a Redeemer (Rom. 5:21).


Q. Who is the Redeemer of God's elect?
A. The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Tim. 2:5), who being the eternal Son of God, became man (Jn. 1:14), and so was and continues to be God and man, in two distinct natures and one person for ever (1 Tim. 3:16; Col. 2:9).

Fair warning, folks. The internet can't be trusted for the next few days. Google has already posted a couple of nonsense pieces and it's only going to get worse.

You've been warned. This one's free.

Nice. I need to ditch cable.
With services like Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and HBO Now, 2015 is the year we can finally say goodbye to our cable TV subscriptions. But how much will it cost you to cut the cord — and what channels will you be leaving behind to do so?
