Perhaps if he reclines and eats with the sinners Perhaps if he serves and cares for the poor Perhaps if he touches the leper, the sick and  unclean Perhaps We will see. Perhaps if he dies and gives his life for the world? The perfect reflection, … Continue reading

The Heretic

  Man against man The weapons the same The sword of the spirit Which is the Word of God An even playing field Who is the arbiter Who the referee Who is the heretic The one with whom we Disagree

In the Image of our Saviour…….

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.
