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?
Hi. In part One I discussed the persecution of President Trump, and the condition of our alleged "news" media. I explored the growing understanding that there is a cabal of many in positions of power who think that we voters are irrelevant in the quest for a perfect world. In this second part, I will … Continue reading FROM POLITICS TO REVELATION: 2 of 2
"All's fair in love, war and politics", according to an old poem with later augmentation: the three most cut-throat endeavours of mankind! To be sure, politics and the struggle for power has been dirty and aggressive throughout human history, but is there perhaps something different about what's happening in the current struggle for power in … Continue reading FROM POLITICS TO REVELATION: 1 of 2
Why am I a Christian? How did it come to be? In answer, an entire book could be written, which would have quite a few racy, dramatic, well-thumbed scenes. However, it's likely that no-one, or almost no-one, would read it in todays racy, well-thumbed, sound-bite world, so instead here's a brief, somewhat clinical summary. (Not … Continue reading MY FAITH, MY TESTIMONY
Hello and welcome to all my wonderful readers! Today please allow me to introduce to you a new album written, recorded and produced by my son and I, called "Sketches" (see link to samples at the bottom of the post). The title of the album is not only a reference to the intimacy of our … Continue reading HEAR MY MUSIC!
The "unknowns" of evolution are too numerous to list, yet the whole package is pushed upon us as though the concept is beyond question. True science deals with observable, testable certainties: evolution cloaks itself in those certainties in order to appear respectable and equally true... Evolutionism takes its assertions and sells them to us as … Continue reading FAITH WITHOUT GOD!
Is there any evidence for the existence of God? Consider first that there are three possibilities as to how we all got here. 1, We were created; 2, We evolved; 3, We aren’t really here, we just think we are. Other evolution-related concepts such as “Pan-Spermia” (life evolved somewhere else in the universe and was then … Continue reading THE EXISTENCE OF GOD
Mankind is devolving, not evolving. Yes, we have cell phones and cars and internet, but this is development, under the temporary opportunity given us by freedom, relative peace and prosperity: it isn't physical or cerebral change for the better... Such evolution, says the fairy story for adults, takes many millennia at least, and more likely, … Continue reading LIVING WITH THE BEAST
How many nice people do you know? Let me be a little more specific: How many people do you know who you feel at ease with; who are genuine and real; who are warm and thoughtful; who you know care sincerely and consistently about you; who you trust, and who are committed to companionship with … Continue reading NICE PEOPLE
Bible prophecy speaks of a future time when a political leader will emerge to world-wide influence, power and popularity, immediately before the return of Jesus Christ. There's enough detail in Scripture to give us quite a clear picture of his character, his beliefs, his actions, and even his appearance. Given that we can know to … Continue reading THE PARTY OF THE BEAST
What makes a society or a civilization strong? Surely it's a common view of truth, a reverence for all life, and a reverence for our Creator... When you have a love of truth you live it out-for the most part- willingly. If some form of political correctness is pushed upon a society it can only … Continue reading NO FUTURE FOR UTOPIA
Sometimes I don't think about God. Sometimes I don't speak with Him. Sometimes I'm not completely honoring of Him in the way I live my life. But here's the good news: God is still there: He's everywhere. He is where you are, right now. When I fail my God, and when I ignore Him, and … Continue reading ULTIMATE FREEDOM-IF YOU WANT IT
Over the years I've been blogging I've seen that the biggest yawn for readers, judging by their response-or lack of it-is any discussion of what truth is and what it means to us. I'm almost writing this post for myself, knowing that very few will be interested: hair color, hurt feelings and virtue-signaling are far … Continue reading PRIDE OR TRUTH
There's a serious epidemic at large in the Church these days-and one of the symptoms is the refusal to make a judgment on whether something or someone is right or wrong... Somehow Christians have bought into the multicultural mindset to the extent that they think they would be committing a crime against humanity by pointing … Continue reading WHEN IT’S GOOD TO JUDGE
Thank you to my loyal readers who keep coming back and wondering where I've been: I'm planning on being back regularly from now on... Two things have been on my mind lately above others. One is our current political and social climate, and the other is the widespread belittlement of God even among professing believers. … Continue reading GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT GOD
Acknowledging that there is a real virus out there...one of many... my own expectation is that fear of Covid-19 will continue to be pumped up to fever pitch until after the election in November. After that, look for considerable deflation, courtesy of a totally biased news media, were the Democratic party to succeed, and alternative … Continue reading ELECTION FEVER
If you're interested in truth you belong to a rare breed in today's world. In fact, truth is so out of style that a large number of individuals and organizations are intentionally working at avoiding it, and in preventing you from finding it... Who checks the so-called "fact checkers"? Where did they get their diplomas … Continue reading EMBRACING DIVISION
A couple of hundred years ago the atom was thought to be like a tiny ping-pong ball. In 1911 Rutherford's experiments led to the realization that the atom is made of even smaller component parts. Now we know that those component parts are so small, particularly the electrons, that each atom is almost entirely space … Continue reading INFINITE SCIENCE: INFINITE GOD
Searching the web last night for current British comedy I came at last upon someone who was very funny...for the first forty-five seconds...when the "f" words began to fly. Just a word, you say? Is it really "just a word" which can be accepted as readily as any other word, and "everyone uses it anyway?" … Continue reading The “F” in England
Does it ever seem to you that the world has gone crazy? Here's the antidote to insanity... I spent the first part of my life trying to escape reality in many ways, most notably and notoriously through alcohol and drugs. To me the world was an ugly, lonely, dark and boring place, and every opportunity … Continue reading Sanity In An Insane World
Millions of people around the world meditate-why don't Christians? My guess is that, apart from the sheer business of our existence, many Christians consider meditation to be an occultic, suspicious practice reserved for those wrapped up in Eastern religions: something the good Christian should steer well away from. The truth is that meditation is something … Continue reading MEDITATION FOR THE CHRISTIAN
Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth (Luke 21:34-35). (I chose the picture for a little levity in an otherwise … Continue reading PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE
Even Trump himself, when campaigning for election, was unaware of exactly what his attempt to become the US president was going to unleash... O ye of weak knees and uncertain disposition: be warned that I do hold strong views on our political climate and our future, herein represented..! Trump's election and presidency, as tumultuous as … Continue reading TRUMP: THE EYE OF THE STORM
