Who's a Liberal to Thank?

* Can't vs. Won't: What's a liberal to do? London will begin installing bomb-proof garbage cans costing USD $48,000! But don't fear! They'll be powered with green technology!! (Yeah, bucks!)

* With Drunkenness Decriminalized: by England, U.S. and Australia decades ago, what's a liberal to do? Britain is thinking of banning Happy Hour to minimize the devastating harm of drunkenness. Ha! Alcohol should be legal, and drunkenness illegal (and the same with other "highs"). Today it is not a crime to be drunk, and police may transport a drunk to a detoxification center, but there is no flogging and no punishment. By the way, back in 2001 when the Bush daughters were charged with underage drinking, MS-NBC invited Bob on air to talk about this issue of alcohol and the decriminalization of drunkenness.

* Bob Lists What He is Thankful For: How about you? If the atheist ever feels gratitude welling up inside himself and he wants to express thankfulness for the sunrise, the food that grows in our world, the natural resources for clothing and shelter, Who is he going to thank? Dirt? Don't be a dirt worshiper. Don't worship the creation, worship the Creator! Thank God!!

* Hugh Hewitt Segment Pro-Gay Marriage: Developing... Huge Hewitt, without disagreeing with his guest, gives a Republican strategist a forum to suggest that Christian conservatives should stop opposing homosexual marriage. That show aired last week, and this week, Dr. James Dobson aired a program with Hewitt lamenting that the church is not following biblical leadership. Guess not.

Post-show Note: Bob Enyart is coming to Indiana, Goshen in the evening of Jan. 29th and Indianapolis on Saturday January 31st, to present a brand new BEL Seminar titled Hermeneutics: Tools for Studying the Bible. Learn how to use sixteen different tools of interpretation as you study the Bible. And as importantly, Bob will discuss the principles involved for prioritizing these hermeneutics. Varying interpretations may result depending upon which tools a student employs to understand a passage, such as the First Mention Principle, Typological Analysis, or the Historical/Grammatical Method. Believers should become experts in right and wrong, and being proficient at reading God's Word is an invaluable advantage. The seminar attendees will learn about the different hermeneutics and how to decide which tool to use in which instance. You'll love it! To register and for more information, please call 1-800-8Enyart!

Psalm 19 Post-show Note: Psalm (preferred over "Psalms") 19 has two sections, and while skeptics claim an unskilled editor joining two unrelated passages, actually, the first half of Ps. 19 describes the universe in literary terms, and the second half describes God's Word in astronomical terms. We could undoubtedly see this better if we spoke Hebrew concurrently with King David:

Ps. 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows [Hebrew: tells] His handiwork.
Ps. 19:2 Day unto day utters speech, And night unto night reveals knowledge.
Ps. 19:3 There is no speech nor language Where their voice is not heard.
Ps. 19:4 Their line [message, i.e., "Don't give me that line"] has gone out through all the earth, And their words to the end of the world...

Ps. 19:7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting [coming around] the soul; The testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
Ps. 19:8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; ...
Ps. 19:11 Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward. ...
Ps. 19:13 Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous sins; Let them not have dominion over me. [Job 38:33 (Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?) Job 38:31-33; 25:2-3; Gen. 1:16.] ...
