the daily purge 7-11-17


The Purging Lutheran a homewrecker? It would seem that way. I sat on this chair the other day and look what happened. The seat of this chair surrendered itself to years of snow and cold, heat and rain, wind and dust in the wind. After 10+ years of meteorological abuse, I salute the chair maker: Ya done well.

What is next for this chair? The trash heap? Can it be crammed in the recycle bin? Could it be refurbished? Should it be tossed off to the roadside late at night in a neighboring neighborhood? Ought it ‘migrate’ to the yard next door? I have received thousands of emails claiming purging is nothing but throwing the trash out. OK, Mr. Smartypants Communist, what would you do with this?


Yeah, I thought so. Leave purging to the professionals, pal.


Deuteronomy 29:2-6

Moses Blesses Israel on the Plains of Moab
Moses called all Israel together and said, You’ve seen with your own eyes everything that God did in Egypt to Pharaoh and his servants, and to the land itself—the massive trials to which you were eyewitnesses, the great signs and miracle-wonders. But God didn’t give you an understanding heart or perceptive eyes or attentive ears until right now, this very day.

I took you through the wilderness for forty years and through all that time the clothes on your backs didn’t wear out, the sandals on your feet didn’t wear out, and you lived well without bread and wine and beer, proving to you that I am in fact God, your God.
