Who was Jesus Christ? Is he an invention? Did he ever really exist? Is there any evidence for his life?
I’ll confess I’m not an authority on churchy affairs, but perhaps it’s time political correctness within the church faced a little more opposition from those who aren’t under its power…
I don't want to play devil's advocate here, but if something goes wrong in your life or in the world at large, it may be the result of what God has done. Trials and troubles can come for many reasons-most often they're of our own doing. But don't buy the lie that God wants us … Continue reading WHEN THINGS GO WRONG
Jesus intertwines his love and devotion for the Father, his love for his disciples, and his acknowledgment of who he himself is, in an incredible love-feast of unity, desire and oneness.
Are all business people wealthy, corpulent, greedy, arrogant, selfish and altogether superfluous?
The Bible is supported richly by archaeological and historical evidence...
Why do people so commonly misuse and abuse the name of Jesus?
A look at the authenticity of our present-day Old Testament scriptures...
Why did God make us into physical beings, unable to see Him, and then expect us to love Him? And why did He give us five senses and put us in a physical world, but then limit what we can do with those senses, according to spiritual principles? Jesus talked to his disciples about the … Continue reading SENSE AND SENSUALITY
We Christians-those of us trying to be true to our faith-are often said to be narrow-minded, because we confine our worship and our beliefs to one God. Is this a fair accusation? What do we say to those who ask us, considering all the gods there are in the world, and with all the ideas … Continue reading WHAT ABOUT OTHER GODS?
Reason is not the enemy of Christian faith, it is a vital and indispensable part of it. It's common for atheists, agnostics, sceptics and unbelievers in general to mock Christians by claiming that we ignore reason. In fact the opposite is (or should be) true. And despite what some Christians think-which is that if you … Continue reading ON BEING SURE
If God made the world, why is the universe so vast? Have you heard that question from a sceptic, or have you perhaps asked it yourself? To the agnostic and the atheist, it seems a ludicrous concept that any God would make the cosmos to be so mind-bendingly huge, and yet make only one little … Continue reading CHRIST’S EVER-EXPANDING COSMOS
Numerous people are earning themselves a fortune as teachers of the prosperity gospel. God wants you wealthy, healthy and happy, they say, and show you just how wealthy, healthy, and "happy" they are... Don't say anything negative, because you will be stopping God from working in your life to make you all that you would … Continue reading IS THERE A DARK SIDE TO JESUS AND THE NEW TESTAMENT?
How do we keep faith for a lifetime? Does it involve screwing up our eyes, gritting our teeth, and suspending reason? I'm not writing on this subject as a claim to great faith. I am no man of faith in the sense of doing great works or of being notably godly or holy, because I … Continue reading KEEPING THE FAITH
Secular science has banned God, as has the education system. There is no discussion of creation or design among evolutionists or secularists, because, having intentionally ejected God from open consideration, they are now doggedly determined to keep Him out... This in spite of the fact that all the famous pioneers and ground-breakers of science were … Continue reading WHAT THE EXPERTS DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT CREATION AND DESIGN
I recently became a victim of the coronavirus. And while I know most people suffer minimal symptoms from it, I've been very sick for almost two weeks. When something big takes hold of your life-if only for a week or two-you start asking questions about life: profound questions. Here's one: Is what I devote my … Continue reading A HOT, PASSIONATE LOVE-AFFAIR
I love those incredible nature documentaries narrated by David Attenborough, and I was watching one last night-"Our Planet"- about life at the earth's poles. One of the beauties of documentaries David has been involved in is that the images aren't flashing by at two a second, as they are in other such programmes: you're given … Continue reading EVOLUTION ANXIETY
I've been losing viewers since around election time, or more precisely, just after election time-when I commented on the result. Evidence was available to anyone who wanted to find it that the US presidential election was severely compromised, and when the courts, the FBI, the DOJ, the media, social media sites, the Democrats and half … Continue reading BEING READY TO STAND
What is the gospel of Jesus Christ? Is it socialism? Is it just one of many ways to God? Is it an invention of white American men? I've posted this message before...and I'll post it again... The Greek word translated “gospel” in the New Testament means “good news”, and in the context of the Bible … Continue reading WHAT IS THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST?
Have you ever missed out on something great, because it didn't fit your limited understanding of what was great? How many people miss out on the greatest treasure of all? I've been creating some electronic music, which will be released on my own Canvas Concertos label, probably some time in March. When I played as … Continue reading FROM SEQUENCING TO SALVATION
The Church is failing itself in many ways, but unfortunately also failing God. One of the biggest of those failures is in the defence of simple, fundamental Biblical truths, such as this one: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. We've become so brainwashed by propaganda and outright lies that we don't … Continue reading GIVING CREDIT TO GOD
In our recent election, huge amounts of evidence of election falsification was ignored by state governors, courts, the Supreme Court, the Democrats and a large number of Republicans also. Free speech is on the ropes, people, and I for one will not be voting Republican again unless something in the party changes dramatically. Even on … Continue reading DEFEND FREEDOM
Hi to all you wonderful people out there-especially those of you in distant lands: United Arab Emirates, Uganda, South Korea, The Philippines, France, China, and more. It's such a blessing to know you're there. Today I've already published a serious post, but I don't want you all to think that I'm a serious, dull, depressed … Continue reading THE MONDAY LIGHT POST
Hello to all you wonderful people out there-especially those of you in distant lands: Nigeria, South Korea, Serbia, China, and more. It's such a blessing to know you're there. And know this: Donald Trump and his fans are far from being racist. What you have heard about us being racist is just another one of … Continue reading THE MONDAY HEAVY POST
Good-day, dear reader. Today I proudly announce that God has not told me verbally or audibly what is going to happen to me, to you, or to the nation... I raise the subject of false prophets because I have been sickened by videos, released before the election, of people pronouncing that the Lord told them … Continue reading THE U.S. ELECTION, AND FALSE PROPHETS
One section of the Church universal is convinced, to varying degrees, that God will do whatever we ask Him to do. All we need is the faith to get it done. Moving the mountain, said Jesus, can be done if only we have the faith to do it, and so, by extrapolation, these Christians are … Continue reading MOVING THE RIGHT MOUNTAINS
I'm sorry people, but the social media site beginning with "t" just flew away at my request. Likewise, the other one beginning with "f" will not be allowed here. My shopping will not longer be done at that all-encompassing site beginning with "a" unless absolutely necessary. Traitors they are to our nation, and enemies of … Continue reading SINKING THE CENSORSHIP
I was wondering, the other day, how many times our Creator has been asked the question, "God! Where are you?" I would venture to say we've all asked this question many times over, in many different ways. Sometimes we intend to question the nature of God, or His existence. Other times, it's a question more … Continue reading WHERE IS GOD?
How many of you are aware of what's really happening to the United States? Those of you who don't have access to free media-which is rapidly diminishing even in the US, will not be aware that a coup of sorts has been occurring and is close to being completed. You have been totally misinformed and … Continue reading ONE STEP FROM REVELATION?
Pravda had nothing on the lies and propaganda of our modern "news" media. When courts and congress will not even look at the huge amount of evidence of election fraud, and media backs them up, it means that freedom has been stolen by people who want to change America and destroy the West. Europe has … Continue reading USA!
I hope the new year is bright and beautiful for all of you out there! What we see has so much affect on how we feel, doesn't it? Where I live the sun shines a lot, but January skies are grey. The cold, monochrome dullness of January is always a time of reflection, soul-searching-and God-seeking … Continue reading KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH THE REAL WORLD
Did you ever encounter such an incredible "coincidence", that you were inclined to believe it really wasn't a coincidence, but an event ordained, fated or written in the stars? I would say that most of us who think at least a little about reality and about what is behind it all have all been aware … Continue reading DO WE HAVE FREE WILL, OR NOT?
Sometimes it just seems like the bad news is never going to stop, doesn't it? But then the good news more than makes up for it all... Last night, while we slept, someone decided to requisition our family's front-lawn Christmas light projector for their own uses. The lights looked so beautiful on the front of … Continue reading FOUR THEFTS AND A GIFT
Are you one of those people thinking that the fuss being made over the recent US presidential election, is just more business-as-usual squabbling politics, with no particular consequence? If so, you're thinking exactly what your leaders-the so-called "news" media people-want you to think. The truth, as is often the case with modern media, and as … Continue reading WHY ISN’T AMERICA MENTIONED IN BIBLE PROPHECY?
Why is it that the potential of our brains and our bodies is so much greater than our behaviour? (This music, "MAKE MAN" © was written and recorded by me, years ago. Headphones on! Turn it up!) This post is a repeat from five years ago, it's edited a little, and it's a sequel to a … Continue reading WHY ARE WE HERE?: THE INTRICACY/STUPIDITY PARADOX
Do you ever feel inadequate, in a world where everyone seems to be going to university and getting degrees, and in which people separate themselves from you because you aren't intelligent or accomplished in their eyes? I once wrote a post titled, "Are Christians Ignorant?" The point was (I think) that people with the greatest … Continue reading THE CARPENTER’S SON
We're all told constantly that dinosaurs evolved, lived and then went extinct many millions of years ago. God didn't make dinosaurs-time plus chance plus chemical soup did... The truth is that life-all life-is incredibly complex. It's far too complex for evolution from non-life to be anything more than wishful thinking. And there is no, repeat … Continue reading SOFT TISSUES IN DINOSAURS
Hi to all my wonderful readers. Yesterday (4th December) I read an article which successfully captures many of my own thoughts on the issue of a certain stolen election in the news-or rather, not in the news-at present. Warning: those of you on the left of politics will not like this post. The … Continue reading THE FRAUD SQUAD
I just couldn't resist commenting on this, before the right to comment is removed completely... Only half of the population of the United States is at all aware of the scope of claims of election fraud being put forward by Trump's legal team. This is because it is being kept from them by the media … Continue reading A NECESSARY DIVISION
As a believer do you look around at our current political and cultural climate and wonder when the rapture will occur? If so, do you want facts, or the cosy, politically-correct answer? I was once a ferocious defender and proponent of the latter, until I decided I wanted to be sure of the facts for … Continue reading RAPTURE BOOK INTRODUCTION PT. 2
Will the rapture really happen before any tribulation events? Will some people be "left behind" when the prophesied rapture occurs? Will all true believers be watching tribulation events from heaven? Many evangelicals are convinced that these things are so, as I was, for twenty-eight years. I say "was" intentionally... These questions and their answers provided … Continue reading TWO VIEWS OF A RAPTURE
The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons... (Paul, 1 Timothy 4:1). Does God fly around the universe in a space ship? That's the contention of some people who think that we Christians are mistaking alien intelligence and technology for a god of our … Continue reading CHRISTIANS AND UFO’s Part 4: THE SPIRITUAL DIMENSION
Evolution is a dirty, deathly concept as it is: are aliens involved in it also? In my teens I read a book which had been immensely popular at that time and before my time: "Chariots of the Gods". The thesis of the book was that aliens have been grooming the human race throughout its history … Continue reading CHRISTIANS and UFO’s Part 3: ASSISTED EVOLUTION?
If you were one of the millions in the United States praying for the right outcome in the US election, you may also be one of the millions wondering where God got to on the day, as I've been tempted to do... Biden has claimed to be a Bible reader. At the same time he … Continue reading THE US ELECTION: DID GOD FAIL?
Volumes could be written about Mr. Terence Ruffle. Never a dull person, Terry made an impression wherever he appeared... It wasn't always a welcome impression, but it's impossible for such a showman to be himself-and to be what he wanted to be-and not rub someone up the wrong way. He was willing to be friendly … Continue reading TERRY RUFFLE
In part one I shared with you my one-time secret longing for the elusive alien race to come, and to take me away to somewhere much more loving and friendly. I also proposed the likelihood that many other people share the same sentiment. Movie directors such as Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have made fortunes … Continue reading WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS BELIEVE ABOUT UFO’s? Part 2
The current goings-on related to the U.S election are an indicator of the state of the nation. But it isn't just the nation which stands to be affected-it's the entire world. With our modern technology, millions of people can view a live event on their devices, and the host will have an accurate count of … Continue reading THE FRUIT OF CORRUPTION
Strong views and strong emotions are evoked by the whole subject of Unidentified Flying Objects, which are almost as varied and diverse as those on God or gods. Is that just coincidence...? I may be giving away my age here, but Close Encounters of the Third Kind was one of the few movies I watched … Continue reading WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS BELIEVE ABOUT UFO’S?: Part 1
We all make the same mistake to varying degrees: we judge God's character by what we see in people around us... If our spouse is mean to us, it is not God's fault. If the government treats us badly, don't blame the Almighty. If the church, or those who move within its walls, or those … Continue reading SEPARATING PEOPLE FROM GOD
A person I knew asked me once if I agreed that it was selfish of God to expect humans to praise him. I'm not sure how well I answered him at the time, but if I could answer him now, I might say something like this... God made us. We are His creation, as is … Continue reading WHY PRAISE GOD?
