If your leadership style is servant-leadership, make me a sandwich.
Your desire to be safe does not constitute a claim on my face.
There is great emotion given to their false Jesus because the only access they have to him is their feelings. Their emotive music lasts longer on Sundays, because they have more to feel about him than they have to say about him.
Idolators feel as good about their false Jesus as a human can feel about anything. In fact, falsehood lives most strongly in the feelings of men because that's the *only* place it lives. Error does not have independent existence; its essence is feeling and its hosts are men.
#Kubernetes is a Greek word (κυβερνήτης), meaning helmsman. It appears in Revelation 18:17 describing those who wept when Jesus nullified their efforts and their cargo.
#Kubernetes is the Greek word κυβερνήτης, meaning helmsman. In Acts 27:11, the kubernetes advocated against Paul for a ruinous course, "but the centurion was more persuaded by the pilot (κυβερνήτῃ) and the captain than by Paul." The ship sank. The moral of the story is obvious.
I would say, "Preach Christ and him crucified", but every preacher thinks he does. So let me clarify: Preach such that every word is conceptually grounded in Jesus, and such that the grounding is explicitly explained. If you aren't doing this, you are vomiting bromides into ears.
The punishment for Christ not explicitly being the grounding of every concept in a sermon, is that a congregation must hear a sermon where Jesus is not explicitly the grounding of every concept in the sermon.
God will send a famine—not of bread or water, but of the preaching of Jesus. Men will wander from sea to sea, from north to east, going to and fro never finding Jesus. Preachers will multiply sermons about redemption, but will not be redeemed from how they turn Jesus into a tool.
If you want to guess why God cancels church, sends viruses and issues riots, listen to sermons. Randomly pick any church and any sermon. If you have ears to hear, you'll notice what isn't said about Jesus.
A man does not live Corem Deo if he does not live Corem Christo.
The creator of Harry Potter (@jk_rowling), didn't use the approved gender language of the left. Now she knows how they turn on their own, "And the beast will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire" (Rev 17:16).
"I have a dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
Satan is fine with you having content of character so long as you don't have the content of the Christological message.
"As you brace for impact, do what Stephen did: Look up, because you'll see the Son of Man Standing." -- Oswald
You can admire the individual, or the group, but not both.
You can empathize with Jesus, or the herd, but not with both.
Covid-19 is to the physical world as seminaries are to the spiritual one--a disease that lives in the minds of the masses based on the bromides of a professional class.
Black Lives Matters is to the physical world as Expository Preaching is to the spiritual one--a slogan that isn't what it claims, and which becomes the pretense for delivering a cure that is a curse.
The conservative pastors know all about abortion and queers, because they abort Jesus from their sermons and are spiritually gay.

There is the systemic suppression of Christology by the very power brokers who control the institutions that claim to represent Jesus. If there ever was a revolution that was real, the publishers, broadcasters, seminaries and churches would be drained of Christ's enemies.
They see it when it happens on streets in cities, but they can't see the same thing when it happens in sermons on Sundays.
They notice violence against humanity, but are oblivious to crimes against Christology.
Only Jesus' Life Matters, but you wouldn't know it from his pastors
"Judeo-Christian" is like saying,
Jesus Hating-Christian. It is a false construction, and does not honor Judaism, but only dishonours Jesus.
Anything that isn't Christological isn't validly Theological, and never was.
Covid-19 is the Commie flu.
Throughout the ages there was only one man who took a step down a new road, armed with nothing but his own motive and a cross.
They destroy their own neighborhoods only. They don't have the means, the distribution lines, the forethought, the skills, the weaponry or the leadership to do more than destroy the cities that share their ideology.

If Jeremiah graduated from @wscal, they wouldn't let him speak in chapel, or at graduation, or ever. He's not like them. He's not happy like them. He does not hold weighty matters as if they are trivial, or the profound message of Jesus as if he is a youth pastor holding a pizza.
More saints should learn Hebrew and Greek. Suggesting you should learn them is not like suggesting you should amputate a limb. Learning these two languages has been treated like it is a stage of dying. It is not. It is a stage of living. You don't lose a limb, you gain Christ.
If you aren't blocked by Steve Lawson @DrStevenJLawson and Dustin Benge @DustinBenge, you aren't doing it right.
Evangelicalism has a deeper swamp, and far more fake news outlets.
Jesus always had human dignity: he merited it at every stage of his human development. The teaching that human dignity is inherent in all humans at all times, is to subvert what Jesus had to maintain through effort--all the way up to his very last breath.
More than needing cops, we need citizens the criminals are afraid to harm, and shops they fear to loot.
Did they know the significance of calling it a red pill? And did they know the corresponding symbology of how the blue party only thinks it is awake?
Not all of history is redemptive,
but all of it is Christological.
Not all of the Bible is about salvation
but all of it is about Jesus.
History isn't the story of redemption, but of Jesus--who doesn't save everybody.
Redemptive-History is a misnomer,
Christ-History is not.
In theology, the watchers are the professors and the elders. But who is watching the watchers? You have to do it for yourself. Own your own Christological mind in the desert of dialog.

The imprecision in their language is an imprecision in their Christology.
Public schools are where they do the sifting.
"They enforced masks on people and arrested moms at city parks for taking their babies to play yet allowed thugs to smash and steal and assault innocent people and did nothing but watch."
"The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth" (Gen 6:6), "they have together become worthless; none do good, not even one" (Rom 3:12).
Only Jesus's Life Matters.
The current rhetoric about "human dignity" as a way for pastors to pander to Black Life Matters, is not the way to directly honor an ethnic group, but is the way they indirectly attack the Individual, Jesus.
God actively merits respect. Jesus has dignity not merely from the fact of being divine, but because as Divinity he continuously operates meritoriously according to that which is proper for Divinity. Jesus is perpetually earning respect through conscious activity (e.g. Heb1:3).
Being made in the image of God means potentiality, not dignity.
