    Agree with Michael.

    All of God’s good gifts are corrupted by the devil, the world and our sinful flesh. How does one know truth or the difference between good and evil? IMO it is only through faith in Jesus Christ, who is the Word of God, the truth, the light of the world, etc.

    Evil? Our Lord taught us to pray to be delivered from it…
    Thanks for the observation, Michael and bob1

    Fundagelicalism is as obsessed with human sexuality as much as the secular world is; but in the opposite direction.

    Both teams venerate aphrodite and hera, just in different ways

    a weekend study in contrasts …

    first, somebody claims a prophecy about him is coming true now

    second, much more fun for me, WtH got back to blogging about 21st century sonatas for classical guitar.

    Noticed Google’s search engine results make it impossible to find the blog these days. Another watchdog blogger noted that that change seems to have been a post Jan 6 change in policies. Not wanting peak SEO these days in the wake of some close-to-home deaths I’ll take the lower online profile. It’s given me a chance to regroup and get back to writing about the stuff I wanted to write about before I spent ten years of my life chronicling the life and times of my old church. There’s a lot of amazing stuff going on in contemporary classical guitar music these days.

    Good thing it’s back to music these days because if I had been trying to get the word out search engine changes have meant WtH doesn’t even show up anymore, at least on Google. Better lower traffic from actual human beings than a parade of bots, though.

    WtH — if it’s any consolation, when I type “wenatchee the hatchet” in Duck Duck Go (which uses Bing), an article on your blog is the first thing that I get, with a few more articles plus links to a couple of other blogs that refer to you (positively). I found Google to be utterly corrupted as a useful search engine for research years ago, and since the pandemic it’s (amazingly enough) gotten worse. I refuse to argue with Google anymore about what I want to search for vs. what it thinks I need to see instead (because they get more money that way); so frustrating.

    I had to set it aside as I got into other reading projects but Zuboff’s book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism seemed to sum up the Google trajectory as having been a really great search engine long ago that was turned into an ad-revenue generator. A friend from the Mars Hill years told me that Google was a genuinely great search engine tool circa 2002 to 2008 or so but it went way downhill in later years.

    It is nice to hear the blog does show up in other search engines. It really is trippy to think that Google search results have devolved into Autocorrect results mediated by Clippy. 🙂
