Clinton’s Tangled Methodist Web

Hillary Clinton’s Favorite Board Game

Not that Clinton needs any help playing positional Twister, but since she is an avowed Methodist, and adamantly pro-abort, it should be fun to see how (or if) she distances herself from her church’s reversal of support of Roe v. Wade. The United Methodist Church is still biblically weak on many, many things; their decision, back in May, to formally withdraw support of the infamous Supreme Court ruling adds one more gust to twist the Madame Secretary in the wind. As far as it goes, I applaud the UMC’s reversal, and I’ll pop the popcorn for Clinton’s response.

The Jews of Middle Earth?

Tolkien’s dwarves are apparently intended to be somewhat analogous to Jews. The likeness is intriguing (i.e. longing to return to their destroyed homeland).

Anyone else remember For Christians, Elves, and Lovers by the All Saved Freak Band? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Saved_Freak_Band Their second album, For Christians, Elves and Lovers (1976) combined evangelical theology and millennialism with admiration for the fantasy world of Lord of the Rings author, J.R.R. Tolkien. A copy of this album remains part of the Tolkien Collection at Marquette University. Man, I’m getting old. The All Saved Freak Band came to a bad end. The experience destroyed the lead guitarist, at one time considered to one of the best guitarists in the world. (Jimi Hendrix supposedly hired him to play at his birthday… Read more »

I read somewhere that Clinton was considering writing her thesis on John Wesley before changing to Alinsky.

Great to hear Peter Hitchens will be at Wordsmithy. I’m a huge fan.

Any plans to do more Cannon Wired interviews with him afterwards?

Tolkien certainly nailed all the Jewish stereotypes in the Dwarves, if indeed that was his intent.

If Jesus were our repentance, in the way described, then why would we be commanded to repent and need to repent in order to be saved? Seems a bit forced, to me. He is never called our Repenter or our Believer. He is our Redeemer / Atonement, thus we are never commanded to redeem ourselves or make atonement for our sins. He provides us with an “alien” righteousness as well, which would explain why we reject justification by our own obedience. Using His baptism as a proof text seems more of a contrived inference; perhaps, in order to support the… Read more »

Should we think that Jesus trusts for us as well?

Of course. If he didn’t we wouldn’t. God manages creation so that all the glory is his. It couldn’t really be any other way.

If so, then we could do away completely with the biblical question “What must I do to be saved?”

Doing those things doesn’t save us. God saves us and then we do those things.
