Physical and Spiritual Health... and all that Jazz

I have been enjoying being more active with the kids - going places, doing things, nature walking. It has helped us all feel better and the school week has whizzed by. So far having extra activities hasn't been that hard on the academic schedule, but I'm praying for balance. Tomorrow is our day off with Daddy and we'll be treasuring him all the more because he's on his way out of town for a business trip. Below are a few interesting distractions I'll leave you with while I enjoy my weekend...

DOCTRINE QUIZ.... How Sprittibee scored (very interesting, no?)...

Which theologian are you?
created with QuizFarm.com
You scored as John Calvin
Much of what is now called Calvinism had more to do with his followers than Calvin himself, and so you may or may not be committed to TULIP, though God's sovereignty is all important.

Karl Barth


John Calvin

Martin Luther

Jonathan Edwards

Paul Tillich

Charles Finney

Friedrich Schleiermacher


J├╝rgen Moltmann



Check out my BlogHer essay for the contest to win a free trip to San Francisco for BlogHer '08... sorry, but it fits my other blog better... so that's where I posted it. While you are reading it at Gathering Manna... stop in for a few recipes. Last night we ate the lentil burritos and they were great. You can't beat paying less than $3 bucks to feed 5 people!

Eventually today (after I get to bed, sleep in, have a big breakfast, clean the kitchen, take my daughter out to catch a minnow in the pond, clean off muddy boots...etc), I'll be posting over at HSBA with the February Homeschool Swap! Come see me over there if you can.

Happy Saturday!

John Lofton, Recovering Republican said...

Hope you visit, please, our Reformed web site TheAmericanView.com. Here’s our “Mission Statement.” God bless you all – and He does bless us when we OBEY Him.

John Lofton, Editor
Recovering Republican

Mission Statement
“For the nation and kingdom that shall not serve thee shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.” — Isaiah 60:12.

As Christians, we are commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ to teach all nations — including ours — to observe all things He has commanded (Matthew 28:18-20). This means bringing into captivity to Christ all areas of life and thought. This means destroying arguments that are against the knowledge of God (II Corinthians 10:5). In obedience to these commands of our Lord, this Web site is established. We covet your prayers for our success in obeying Him.

We are seriously concerned about, deeply grieved by and lament the fact that far too many of today’s so-called “Christian leaders” are a sinful embarrassment and are responsible for the cause of Christ being mocked and ridiculed. By being, first, cheerleaders for the Republican Party, they have dishonored their Lord and sold their Christian birthright for a mess of partisan political pottage. These individuals and organizations are Christian in name only, “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof.” From such, it is added, we must turn away.

Secular, Christless conservatism — even when it is supposedly “compassionate” — will not defeat secular, Christless liberalism because to God they are two atheistic peas-in-a-pod and, thus, predestined to failure.

More than 100 years ago, speaking of the secular, Christless conservatism of his time, the great Southern Presbyterian theologian, Robert L. Dabney, observed:

“[Its] history has been that it demurs to each aggression of the progressive party, and aims to save its credit by a respectable amount of growling, but always acquiesces at last in the innovation. What was the resisted novelty of yesterday is today one of the accepted principles of conservatism; it is now conservative only in affecting to resist the next innovation, which will tomorrow be forced upon its timidity and will be succeeded by some third revolution, to be denounced and then adopted in its turn. American conservatism is merely the shadow that follows Radicalism as it moves forward to perdition. It remains behind it, but never retards it, and always advances near its leader. This pretended salt hath utterly lost its savor: wherewith shall it be salted? Its impotency is not hard to explain. It is worthless because it is the conservatism of expediency only, and not of sturdy principle. It tends to risk nothing serious for the sake of truth.”

Amen! And what Dabney says has been proven with a vengeance in modern times, under recent Republican Administrations and Congresses who were supported enthusiastically by individuals and organizations who called themselves “Christian” but who, alas, when judged by their fruits, were not.

To those who will accuse of us of desiring and trying to bring about “a Christian America,” we unashamedly plead guilty though the accusation is far too modest and somewhat muddled. To be sure, we desire a Christian America, and a Christian world, a Christian galaxy and a Christian universe. And, over time, by His grace, we hope to demonstrate that all these things already belong to the Lord Jesus Christ because He created them all and they are His property. This is why all knees must bow to the Lord and all tongues confess that He is the Lord — because He is!

Jude 1:3 3

“Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.” (KJV)

:) THANX Lori!

Mrs. C - Wow, you got a really nice 93%. I'm too much of a rebel.

John - Too funny... "recovering Republican". I have also heard someone say online recently "Dude, Where's my party?"
