Two Sets of Rules?

I spoke briefly about how the “Honour Shame” system works on Guys (here) – it is only fair to now talk about how this affects women. It is also only fair to warn you ladies, that the news is not good. The “Honour Shame” system was a way of thinking that was prevalent in Jesus … Continue reading

Violence is for Pussies

Ladies – this post is not directed at you – but read on anyway, I think it worth hearing. Men are fragile, violent men are absolute pussies! To prove my point I want to explore some information that was given to me by a Pastor – maybe even thirty years ago – I wasn’t just … Continue reading

The Wind….Where is it Headed?

Many years ago, I tried sailing a small catamaran on Cockburn Sound in Western Australia. The wind was probably only about 1 knot, barely enough to move us in a forward direction.

Salvation? From the Jews?

  Salvation will come from the Jews! A simple enough statement don’t you think? I have been re-thinking this simple statement. What does salvation mean? Does it come from the Jews? My initial way of looking at this was to simply say that Jesus was a Jew and salvation therefore came from the Jews. And … Continue reading

Dangerous Games we Play

There is one game that Christians all tend to play – I feel I can pick on them because I am one. There is one game with several subtle variations – whichever version is engaged, no matter, it must be said that all such games are damaging. The name of the game is “Thus saith … Continue reading

Camels

What is the first thing you think about if I use the word carnal? What about the word flesh? Don’t know about you but I think about sins of the flesh….sex. I am thinking about this terminology because of an article in the Sydney Morning Herald….”Women wear the brunt of our primitive response to fear” … Continue reading
