The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved. Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity. The seas have lifted up, O LORD, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves. Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea-- the LORD on high is mighty. Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O LORD.

We restrain the exercise of our freedom for the sake of weak believers, but not when we are faced with Pharisees who demand that we conform to what is unscriptural. Where the gospel is at stake, liberty needs to be exercised; where the stability of a weak Christian is at stake, we need to restrain it. --John Calvin

Martin Luther “A Christian man is the most free lord of all, and subject to none; a Christian man is the most dutiful servant of all, and subject to every one.”

The sanctuary of God is made from the hearts of God’s people, hearts lifted to give and to praise, hearts ascended to God.--Peter Leithart

Planned Parenthood doesn’t give away contraceptives; it sells them.  It doesn’t do cancer screenings.  And although it may be that  only 3% of its business comes from abortion, 90% of their profits do.  Also, fetal tissue research has NOT resulted in any medical breakthroughs.--Gene Veith
