The Weekend Review and ShockCast 001

Okay, I’ve decided to launch into something a little new, since I don’t talk so much about the news during the week. Sometimes I will, but often I won’t. I also want to provide something of a compilation of the week’s news to help you stay on top of what is important.

The Weekend ShockCast won’t be all the news, but it will be the most important.

Lord willing, this will go out on Friday afternoons (EST). So, join me for the very first Weekend Review and ShockCast.

Technical Difficulties – Hillbilly ISP

I love Hillbillies. I went to school with one, and there’s nothing like a physicist that’s one hundred percent hillbilly. They are often some of the best people, and I have enjoyed being around them. And, I genuinely like the Taiwanese version of the Hillbilly. Most of the time. Unfortunately, this is not one of them.

Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with a YEE HAW attitude are terrible at service or providing. And it seems that, down here in Tainan, the local office of our ISP is run by hillbillies with a little too much Yee Haw in attitude and technical skill.

They have successfully knocked us off of the Internet for several days, for reasons that are so trivial that my head is about to explode. And no, even though it’s their own fault, they will not fix it until their Yee Haw technician stumbles into the office and blinks blearily at his work schedule, on Monday. He probably knows the way to our apartment building by heart, since he’s been here so often, messing up the Internet connection of every single apartment in our building at least once over the past few weeks.

We Forgot that God is JUST

One of the most pernicious movements to sweep the church is this idea that God is a kindly old man who wouldn’t hurt a fly and is willing and ready to overlook any and all sin. Along with it came an easy-believism and permission to ‘follow your heart’.

Truth was optional, and the Old Testament didn’t reflect God, anymore.

What we forgot in the process was that God doesn’t change. Ever. We forgot that the sins that made Him angry four thousand years ago, make Him angry today.

We forgot that God is JUST.

The Road Ahead – 2018

I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.

Please treat these seriously.

My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.

Will we run out of ‘luck’ in 2018?

WEEKEND SHOCKCAST: Beast Rider

We spend a lot of time trying to figure out who and what The Beast is, but seemingly very little time looking for the woman who rides The Beast. And, there are some interesting challenges that we have in trying to figure out the identity of The Great Whore.

The Book of Revelation gives us clues to the identity of The Great Whore. But, even though those clues are definitive, they still leave us with more questions than answers. I have tried to answer as many of those questions as possible, this week. And, the reason why I have tried to do that is wrapped up in a command by God found in Revelation 18.
