In The Image of Man God is Created

Hi again world – two things inspired me to post again – it has been a while. Firstly I read a comment by some random (sorry if it is you…. by random I mean I don’t remember who) The comment mentioned a  “deconstruction phase” of  faith. Secondly – not long after this I read this about … Continue reading

I am a Bigot But Don’t Admit It

A symbol on my forehead And a sign on my hand A relay baton My world view The unmoving bigot The prejudice within We all have a baton But don’t admit it We call it “faith” And we pass it on Thus Mistakes of the past Come around on the track It is way to … Continue reading

The Three Wise Men From the East

This Christmas I made a special note of something I have not given much thought in previous years.  Wise men coming from the East. I think this is a significant bit of information, perhaps information we choose to leave in the recesses of our mind. What does this say? It doesn’t say that all people … 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. The wind did pick up a little bit, and I was white knuckle terrified. Reflecting on Jesus’ words to Nicodemus made me think … 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

The Psychology of Religion

Hi again – It’s Saturday again. My last post was different to most.  In dismay I responded to a deletion warning on a site that was set up for the express purpose of discussion – which includes the discussion of  contoversial issues. Dismay that they would in fact stifle and censor one side of an … Continue reading

The Threat of Deletion

Hi again – it’s Saturday! I have made Saturday morning my Posting day – I got up early, entirely unsure about what to blog about until I received a threat of deletion. It’s not the first time – I had another thread deleted because I had some “unauthorized” links in them. I was asked by … Continue reading

Ogres

Hi again – I know these rats I photographed are really cute and look nothing like monsters but they were the only ones that fit the following disturbing quote: “Where rats appear, they bring ruin by destroying mankind’s goods and foodstuffs. In this way, they spread disease, plague, leprosy, typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery, and so … Continue reading

Blessings and Curses

Martin Luther did many great things. Like normal people he did some dumb things as well. Have a read of some of his words. In his Treatise “On the Jews and their lies” Section XI of the treatise he advises Christians to carry out seven remedial actions. These are for Jewish synagogues and schoolsl to be … Continue reading
