More than a Israeli problem

August 8th, 2017

God begs the world to know, so he tapped a guy named Paul to say so. People, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.
For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, […]


attitude is everything

March 29th, 2017

If you are politically savvy, then you know the migration by Muslims from their hell holes to European countries. Has led to nothing but violent disruptions. Raising up a new brand of politicians saying enuf is enuf. Causing one candidate, to comment and ask, “There’s something I just don’t understand. People who come to France, […]


Unsung heroes are violent non violently

November 8th, 2016

If you are one of those people, who like the happy days of Sundays. In church, where nothing happens besides smiling and singing, these discussions are not for you.
But on the other hand, if you have the spirit of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a Lutheran clergyman in Nazi Germany. Who would not flee the country, but stayed […]


Prosperous walk of life

July 13th, 2016

Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.
A good man obtains favor from the lord, but a man of wicked intentions, he will condemn.
A man is not established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous cannot be moved.
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband, but she who causes […]


What many want understanding of sorrow

April 26th, 2016

An amaranth grew beside a rose. “How lovely you are,” it said to the rose, “and desirable in the eyes of the gods and men! I felicitate you on your beauty and your fragrance.”
“But my life,” replied the rose, “is a short one; even if no one cuts me, I wither. You continue to bloom […]


Whipped and Beaten

April 19th, 2016

A wild ass which saw a tame one sunning itself went up and congratulated it on its sleek condition and the good food it enjoyed. Later, however, he saw it with a load on its back. And, a driver following behind beating it with a stick. “I can’t congratulate you now,” he said, “for I […]


Keep that tongue in check

The destiny of thought

April 17th, 2016

“Truth does not become more true by virtue of the fact that the entire world agrees with it, or less so even if the world disagrees with it,” Moses Maimonides.
“Mad is to hold an erroneous perception and argue perfectly from it,” Auralio Voltaire.

The ideologies of delusions

February 7th, 2016

From all we know about God, perhaps his most astonishing feat was while still being God, he became fully human, John 1:14. Later, Jesus had a discussion with a successful young man. Who referred to Jesus as the Good Master. There Jesus set the record straight. Why call me Good? Because there is no one […]


Flight 253

January 25th, 2016

What the past can teach us about Boston’s marathon bombing. It’s the plight of flight 253′ near destiny with death. I wasn’t going to blog about it. Why? Because Muslims assorted attacks are rather routine, guaranteeing that’s it’s only a matter of time before an American airline meets its destiny with death at the hands […]


The indefinable defined

December 3rd, 2015

The process of defining God seems to be a preoccupation with many people. Some define God as loving, merciful, ever present and all powerful. But such attributes, most say, can be called into question just by the absurdity of the human condition.
Why would a loving, merciful creator, who knows everything, is ever present and with […]


Be a spoiler like the Galilean

October 26th, 2015

Stretching across eons of time and begging today for recognition. Arrives these heralded words. Tell the daughter of Zion! Behold your King comes unto you meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of an ass, Matthew 21:5.
From that triumphant entry into Jerusalem would come freedom from the misery of oppressive bondage […]


I’ll cook you dead

October 20th, 2015

With death having many faces which might be creeping over the horizon faster than expected. If, there is any merit in the following satire whose source is unknown.
Birds are using potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for dogs.
Hot water now comes out of both facets in the sink.
You can make […]

Wages of Treachery

September 5th, 2015

The wolves said to the dogs, “Since you are exactly like us, why do you not come to a brotherly understanding with us? There is no difference between us, except our thinking. We live in freedom. You cringe like slaves to men, letting them beat you and put collars on you, and guarding their flocks […]


Survival When Others Panic

August 29th, 2015

“Princes, also did sit and speak against me, but your servant did meditate in thy statutes,” Psalms 119:23-24.
Nothing is easy or free, it requires this application in one form or other. “Whoever ceases to be a student, has never been a student,” George Iles.
In order to understand and experience Psalms 119:23-24, indeed it takes the […]


Y wonderland went belly up

August 25th, 2015

Everything that was, is, and will be, has been scripted by God beforehand. And it was said in the previous discussion that God never intended for his people to be governed by monarchies or democracies. Because they are not God centered, but rather self serving buffoons. Who get their energy from their adulating puppets, who […]


Full pews and ringing cash registers

May 27th, 2015

Here they are, questions to be answered about the dead, and the living, and everything in between.

The good old days

January 12th, 2015

Sometimes it’s the subtle things that destroy us. Like this bold concept from our founding fathers. As they etched these words more than two centuries ago into our Declaration of Independence. “… mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms they are accustomed ….” I […]
