November 10

November 11 (Comment: As I read the Scriptures, the Lord said to partake often but He didn’t say how often the often should be.  Some people give little to no indication that they would have supported Martin Luther had they lived at the time Luther did.  Some things that Luther emphasized are not emphasized.) (Comment: doesn’t sound like he upholds Biblical Christology, the teaching the Jesus is the only way to heaven, or Biblical Evangelism, despite being affiliated with a denomination with a theologically conservative reputation)

November 14

November 15 (clickbait) (not helpful if one is kooky in pressing one’s case.  Could lose some votes for conservatives in the future.  Best to use common courtesy in arguing one’s case too.)

November 21 “My assortment of charms grew steadily: a miniature Buddha, an Ohio buckeye, a laminated four-leaf clover, a tiny bronze likeness of Hanuman the monkey god, all manner of angels, rosary beads, crystals and rocks,” former President Obama said. (Sojourners is extremely theologically liberal.)

Those Dern Lutherans: An Interview with Paul T. McCain ( Although little known outside of the LCMS, McCain was a prominent leader in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod for many years.  Mary Ann McCain wrote in a wonderful tribute on Facebook on November 26, “My dad suddenly passed last night. Although this is a shock to us all, this is not a shock to God. My dad was a man of incredible faith; strong, determined, devoted. He was a pastor, a writer, an avid gun collector, and a very loving husband. To me, he was my hero. He gifted me with a new Bible on Tuesday and I kissed him goodbye yesterday. We are also blessed to have pictures from a recent family photoshoot. My dad is now in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father, whole and free. I love you, Dad.

“The Lord has given, the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord” Job 1:21.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Revelation 21:4

Dad’s Favorite Verse: “I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20”
