I was just beginning to write about – no kidding – the beginning. I’m getting stuff from both a Jewish and Christian point of view. And then it hit me. Can we have faith in God if we want to know everything? Can we reach a point where our need to know everything brings us to a point where faith means little to nothing?
Will there be homeless people in Heaven? Who cares?
Will there be homeless people in Heaven? I ask because of something I read in The Detroit News. An article titled, More older Americans at risk of a homeless retirement. Unless you’ve been hibernating for the last couple of years, you know the sad reality of homelessness in what we call the greatest country in the world. Maybe it is, if you’re one of the fortunate ones who has enough money to have a place to live and buy good food. But, ...
Does Christianity really say wives submit to your husbands?
Does Christianity really say wives submit to your husbands? Well, that depends. The English words say that. Unless we take the time to read the rest of the sentence in which they occur. If we turn to the spirit of the words, no, it doesn’t necessarily say that at all. I ask because I was going to write about something totally different today. That is, until I read the headline – Grace Community Church Leaders under Fire for ‘Excommunicating’ Wife Who Refused to Stay with Abusive Husband. That is, in a word, disgusting! And it’s a misuse of the verse in question. So, in another word, it’s wrong.
What is the source of knowledge? True knowledge?
What is the source of knowledge? And I mean of true knowledge? Not just information. Not someone’s version of “their truth” or what someone else “knows”. But real, honest-to-goodness true knowledge. Remember when that used to exist? It hasn’t gone away. And it won’t go away, no matter how much we try to ignore it. But in today’s world of information overload, how can we find real true knowledge?
The U.S. and Israel: Three Tragic Verses – One Unavoidable Conclusion.
The U.S. and Israel: Three Tragic Verses – One Unavoidable Conclusion. The U. S. will not help Israel at a critical time and … When presented with the facts, no matter how much we don’t like what they say, sometimes the conclusion is unavoidable. Just look at Ukraine and you get an idea of what’s coming.
Does God really protect us? If yes, from what?
God really protect us? Will thought to himself. As soon as he silently asked himself the question, he answered it. Of course he does. Then another thought: Does he always protect us in the way we want, when we want it?
Christians – What are you wearing? Your Sunday best?
Christians – What are you wearing? Your Sunday best? Uh Oh. Is this going to be about wearing clothes that are “appropriate” for Christians? Like long dresses for women? Suits and ties for men? If that’s what you’re concerned about, don’t worry. I’m talking about something else entirely. Well, sort of. Something that really matters. Something that makes a difference.
Never again will I destroy all living creatures. Until …
Never again will I destroy all living creatures. That’s what God said. You know, back in Genesis, the first book in the Bible. Of course, that means He did destroy all living creatures once. However, let’s not forget what happens in Revelation, the last book in the Bible. God won’t destroy all living creatures. That... Continue Reading →
Is the earth intelligent, or is this something else?
Exciting stuff. And yet, it does challenge our intelligence, doesn’t it? Sometimes I can’t help but wonder if the goal of some scientists isn’t to essentially prove that we humans are pretty unintelligent.
What does God think of us? Do we care?
What does God think of us? Do we want to know? For that matter, do we care? Like many writers, I use software to evaluate what I write, including the title. According to that software, the title of this one is positive. I can’t help but wonder, how many of us think it’s positive? How many of us, if we had the opportunity, would really want to hear what God thinks of us?
