Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

Chester Street: Once Saved, always saved

I've have been very lax of late with regards to blogging. For that I apologize. Thank God that others have not stopped. I was cruising the Blog Roll and saw that good ole Mark at Chester Street is still spreading the Truth and This particular Truth bears repeating.

Chester Street: Once Saved, always saved
After a very long and tiered conversation with someone who thinks they can lose their salvation, I will post this list [shamelessly stolen from Melvin's Essays] Link is Here.

Here is what must happen every time you sin and LOSE your salvation.

1. I have to lose my eternal life – which, or course, isn’t eternal if I can lose it.
2. I have to cease to be the new creation and become an old creation again.
3. I have to cease to be a child of God – He has to disown me.
4. I have to again become a child of wrath.
5. I have to cease to be a child of Light and become a child of darkness again.
6. I have to be removed from the body of Christ – un-baptized as it were.
7. I have to come alive again, outside of Christ.
8. I have to get unburied and un-united in my burial with Christ.
9. I have to take myself out of Jesus’ hand.
10. I have to take myself out of the Father’s hand.
11. I have to be transferred back to the kingdom of darkness.
12. I have to be unsealed for the day of redemption.
13. I have to some how come alive again to the power of sin.

...and of course, after I have repented, God does it all over again! Yeh, ok...
Thanks Mark! Strange though, I run into people who swear they can lose their salvation when they sin but they haven't lost theirs yet. Hmmm. You gotta love those perfect human beings.

Monday is NOT Presidents Day!

I am really sick and tired of the alleged PC crowd referring to the upcoming holiday as “President’s Day”.  It is NOT President’s Day, there is no such holiday.  Monday we will be celebrating Washington’s Birthday.

“But Dane, my calendar says President’s Day. Surely calendar makers know what day it is!” You’ll reply.

Apparently they don’t Many calendars list it as President’s Day.  Now for some background:  Richard Nixon’s executive order declared some holidays to be celebrated on Mondays regardless of when they fell. This was done in ‘68.  Washington’s Birthday was one of them. It is still called Washington’s Birthday according to the law books and was first celebrated in ‘71. The confusion arose when people stopped celebrating Lincoln’s birthday which was never an actual Federal holiday. Many states recognized and celebrated Lincoln’s birthday but stopped after 1969. I suppose some genius declared “Hey why not celebrate both birthdays on that Monday”.  And thus we get President’s Day.

As a stickler for detail and the truth I still call it Washington’s Birthday.

Interesting Quote

I fouond this in my inbox this week. It has been one of those things flying round the net so I present it to you.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
There was some question as to whether the alleged source, a Czech statesman spoke these words. Did someone really say this? Well according to
This quote was translated into English from an article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager Zeitung of 28 April 2010.
So what do you think?
