We Are All Alike


Today I read a news report that totally sickened and disgusted me. Having said that, it’s not an unusual circumstance these days! However, the report affected me so badly that I cried out to the Lord, “what sort of person DOES that??

I’m not going to spell out in detail what this twisted individual did, because it’s not appropriate, apart from giving an illustration of what I mean.

Just take it from me, this person is the worst of the worst – selfish, psychotic, murderous, depraved, cruel – and if you really want to know the details you can look them up for yourself here. (However, the point of this blog post is not the actions of this person, as you will see as you read on.) Continue reading

The Cashless Society and Microchip Implants


It is clear to me that powerful people – whoever they might be – have decided to get behind the idea of a cashless society and the use of microchip implants for humans. Trials are taking place in Sweden and parts of the UK right now, certainly with a view to expanding the idea worldwide if possible. Continue reading

Overcoming Doubts


Are you ever troubled by doubts? Do you ever puzzle over unanswered prayer, or events that just don’t seem to add up?

I haven’t been a regular doubter in my Christian life, thankfully. I seem to possess an ability to accept things in an almost childlike way, without constantly asking why or needing proof. Continue reading

Atonement or Ransom?


There’s nothing that brings out the theological nerd in me more than unpicking the true meaning of a word in scripture, and this one is a doozy! Atonement!

For a start, it’s not really a biblical word, but was coined by the bible translators for a Hebrew word for which they felt there was no near English equivalent.

The Emotional Life of Jesus


What We Learn From The Emotional Life of Jesus

I’m watching the TV series “Jesus: His Life” on TV – I have reached episode four so far. I don’t totally recommend it, but you might like it. However, I am not here to promote the series but to explore some aspects of the life of Jesus that sprang out of it for me. Continue reading

Is Jesus the Angel of the Lord?


Moses and the Burning Bush
Moses and the Burning Bush

Why did Jesus say several times that nobody has seen God, when plenty of people are recorded as having seen and heard God in the Bible ? John 6:46; John 1:18; John 5:37; also 1 John 4:12: “No one has seen God at ANY time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him”.

There appears to be a contradiction, since Jesus said no man has ever seen or heard God, yet many times throughout the Old Testament, people DID see and hear God! Nonetheless, “You have never heard his voice, nor seen his form….” [John 5:37] Continue reading

The Angel Moved The Stone – But Why?


I write on the Saturday of Easter weekend (as the westernised version of events has it) and it is no coincidence I am sure that in my recent re-reading of the gospel of Matthew I arrived today at the final two chapters, the account of the trial, crucifixion and resurrection of the Son of God.

As always, the bible text itself corrects so many popular bible myths that have been introduced over the centuries. We must not base our beliefs on myths or religious paintings, but the word of God.
