Madeleine McCann: The Parents Did It

The well-publicised case of Madeleine McCann's alleged disappearance in 2007 in Portugal at the age of 3 recently entered the spotlight again after German police dug up the garden of a convicted paedophile looking for her body. Portugese police initially investigated Madeleine's parents, Kate and Gerry McCann, but ultimately dropped the case for lack of … Continue reading Madeleine McCann: The Parents Did It

The Avengers & Iron Man

Blockbusters Reviewed

Welcome to the 37th edition of My Fortnightly Movie/TV Thoughts!  Last fortnight, I reviewed Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011).  This fortnight, I’m reviewing:

  • Marvel’s The Avengers (2012), rated M for action violence
  • Iron Man Three (2013), rated M for action violence

Those are of course the Australian ratings.  In the United States, the ratings are:

  • The Avengers – PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference
  • Iron Man Three – PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content

As usual, I’ll give the trailers and a clip each at the end.  And as usual, I offer the following disclaimer just to be safe:

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD.  PROCEED AT OWN RISK.

The Church Fathers’ REAL Opinions on the Apocrypha

I've mentioned in a couple posts now how Protestant apologists often claim that most of the early Church Fathers explicitly rejected the Apocrypha (also known as the Deuterocanon) - usually naming names such as Origen - when in fact most of them (such as the ones Protestants name) explicitly accepted them as Scripture.  But I … Continue reading The Church Fathers’ REAL Opinions on the Apocrypha

Cult Programming in Seattle

Sickening.

Sixth Seal Ministries

Christians, PRAY

First, a word from me
God made each of us exactly as He decided long before we were conceived in the womb, Psalm 139:16. For that reason, we should honor and respect all people as those who have been uniquely created by God, and in His own image. By this same token, we should never despise, reject or apologize—in terms of ethnicity, race, or gender—for how the Creator of the universe chose to make us for His good pleasure.

Regardless of your view on the following article, if you think this kind of programming—which incidentally, is far more likely to result in more bias and racism by those so inclined, not less—isn’t opening the door to all sorts of future conditioning and forced compliance, to include that of the Church, think again. This is serious.

The Real Origin of the Peace Symbol (and the Pentagram)

The "peace symbol" or "peace sign" is widely used today. However, it is seen by many as pagan or occultic, or even anti-Christian.  You'll often find statements like the following by Cindy Jacobs in her book Deliver Us from Evil: This came to characterize the ideal of peace in the hippie era.  But occultists equate … Continue reading The Real Origin of the Peace Symbol (and the Pentagram)

Christian Paranoia: Dungeons & Dragons – Part 1

I recently reblogged How to Spot a Fake-Azz “Occult Expert” in Two Words, which refuted some of the lies some Christians circulate against British author J.K. Rowling and her Harry Potter books (and their movie adaptions).  For some reason, when it comes to popular culture, Christianity has long had a problem with paranoia and outright … Continue reading Christian Paranoia: Dungeons & Dragons – Part 1
