Fri, 21 Oct 2016 08:01:33 -0500

I Want To Come To Christ, But Don't Know How

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:28:04 -0500

Many people have heard the gospel. They know they need God's forgiveness and need to come to Christ, but they don't seem either able or willing to take that vital next step. Often there is an intense struggle, and a fear that all control of life will be lost keeps them from taking that step. Often there is a fear that life will become deadly dull and religious, which keeps people from the all-important step. Sound familiar? This article aims to make the issues clear.

For Believers Only

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:27:17 -0500

There is one passage of scripture where no one was in earshot of Jesus except His true disciples. We can take great encouragement from what He said in this passage.

Choose to Follow

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 13:27:06 -0500

Public figures are eager for a following on social media. People are fickle, though, and they can choose to "unfollow" whenever that figure is out of favor. When you decide to follow Jesus, it is eternally life changing.

God Is Still Calling You

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 08:06:45 -0500

With Jesus' Body

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 10:13:53 -0500

Release Your Handbrake

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:55:39 -0500

We must get rid of all the wrong things inside us. They hold us back. They stand between us and our blessings. God will provide the power to get rid of them.

Practising for the Parkrun

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:55:36 -0500

We talk a lot about God and church and doing good, but the question is whether God's power is active in us. Do other people see and feel God's power when you're with them?

Parts That Must Be Severed

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:54:22 -0500

Sin prevents you from experiencing total peace and joy. Therefore, I must let go of it immediately.

Your Calling Now

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:54:17 -0500

Know that God wants to use you to make a difference where you are. You are His chosen one. Become still, be sensitive and listen. Look for places where God wants to use you today and do it, because then you are exactly living your calling. Do what God would like to do to other people.

Celebrate the Difference

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:54:06 -0500

We shouldn't mess with what God gives us. One day we'll be held accountable for it and we'll have to take a beating for what we did to our children.

Washing on the Line

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:54:02 -0500

In a way God's holy water will wash through your and He will wash away the dirt. Now you can live fully for Him. You can avoid the mud pools and make a real difference in His kingdom.

The Spirit Moves in

Sexuality Under Scrutiny

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:53:35 -0500

Could you ever imagine your parents having intercourse? When my brother was still quite young, the mayor's son told him about the birds and the bees. (With six children my mom and dad couldn't keep up with who they had told the story to and who not.

The Yeast and the Handbrake

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 09:52:23 -0500

A small bit of sin is like yeast and gradually works through your whole life, with the result that the handbrake is pulled up. Loosen the handbrake. Throw away the yeast. Clean up and brush sin from your life. Then you will become a link in God's kingdom.

Where Have All the Clowns Gone?

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 07:54:24 -0500

The Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage and I were getting ourselves situated in the living room with some after supper coffee while watching the little bit of TV. These days, a little bit of TV is about all a person can handle. Nothing quite measures up to a nice hot cup of coffee after a scrumptious supper and if anybody can scrumpturize a supper, it is the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage. Every once in a while she will point out the fact that I am not as skinny as I once was. My response to her is simply this, "It's your fault for being such a wonderful cook."

Difficulties With Calvinism?

Thu, 13 Oct 2016 08:45:18 -0500

Names which identify systems of Christian belief have at times become the simplistic label of orthodoxy for different groups. John Calvin, the 16th century French Protestant Reformer, is a marked example. Some of what is popularly taken to be 'Calvinism' still causes misunderstanding among Christians. Here, is why I think it is not especially helpful to describe oneself as a Calvinist.

Pope Says Trump is Not a Christian, But the Bible Offers a Warning to Popes - Catholics May Be OK

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 07:06:05 -0500

The Bible implies that anyone following truth to the best of their ability is following Christ because He said, 'I am the Truth.' The problem comes with religions that don't teach Bible truth or they change it to suit culture and their own practices. Christ who loves everyone is judge, but He implied that many who are religious are self-deceived in Matthew 7.

Jesus Was Not a Racist

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 15:14:36 -0500

Jews always considered Samaritans the worst racists. This reference is because the Samaritans were very hostile and inhospitable towards the Jews.

The Fourth Commandment

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:46:16 -0500

Across America, Believers are resurrecting the exhibiting of lawn sighs that depict the Ten Commandments. So many Christians are having trouble with the fourth one, for they believe it is not valid for the Church today. If that is so why not erase it from their placards and promote just the Nine Commandments? Really?

How God Sees Me

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:19 -0500

When the new smoking legislation was passed, I was still a full-on smoker. The new law forced manufacturers to inform all smokers in no uncertain terms about the dangers of smoking. I didn't take much notice.

The Inspector Will Inspect Your Building Work

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:18 -0500

Jesus must be the foundation of our lives. We shouldn't chase after fame, money or happiness. No, Jesus must be at the centre of our lives.

Sow the Gospel

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:14 -0500

Find the open door where God wants you to plan the seed of the Gospel. You don't have to be afraid. God will take you by the hand. Know for sure that God will do His part and that the miracle will happen. The seed will germinate and the sprig will start to grow

First Milk, Then a Piece of Steak

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:12 -0500

We spent Easter Weekend with friends on the river at Swellendam. Next to us was a couple with a small baby. As I watched them I realized that I'd forgotten how much a small baby depends on his parents.

Get Off the Chair

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:11 -0500

Chase the own self from the chair and put your neighbour there. Live for your neighbour, because then you are living precisely according to God's will for your life. Real joy and happiness will bowl you over.

The Spirit Helps With Understanding

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:44:10 -0500

Outside the world is making a big noise and the Holy Spirit's voice is soft. Actually, everything is working against the Spirit and we must become quiet to hear the Spirit. We must realise that we must make space for the Spirit inside us. We must allow the own self to get off the chair to make space for the Holy Spirit. Then we'll experience His impact on our lives. Then we'll get to know God. Then we'll know what His will for our lives is. Then we'll be able to make a real impact on the lives of others, because we know God and we know this is precisely what He wants us to do. And all thanks to the work of the Holy Spirit inside us.

Find True Wisdom in God Only

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:41:56 -0500

Be wise and give God more space in your life. Make God a part of your life 24 hours a day. In a way this is a kind of insurance that we take out against stupid decisions.

Prizes at the Prize-Giving

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:41:28 -0500

Rather do your work to the best of your ability. Make sure that no fingers can point at you or at your work.

For the Sake of the Kingdom

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:39:44 -0500

It's not always easy to live your calling. But every child of the Lord is expected to work in the Kingdom.

Witness: God Speaks!

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 08:39:40 -0500

God still speaks through His Word today! We must believe this with all of our hearts. We must go to His Word with this expectation. Somewhere around the corner God will surprise you.

A True Prophet Forsaken By God? Surely Not!

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 07:56:39 -0500

One of the experiences of Jesus that has, for many, ruled him out of being the final Great Prophet is the story of his crucifixion. A widespread belief holds Jesus was merely one in a line of prophets and who escaped death at the last minute as God saved him by getting someone else to die in his place. Does it matter, what difference would it make between his actual death and his being swapped for someone else?

Division Leads to Tears

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:37 -0500

We miss the target so easily. It is often about me and my way of believing. Let it go and use that energy to take Jesus' message of salvation to the people out there.

God Is Busy With You

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:34 -0500

Often things happen to us that we don't understand. Sometimes we throw a little tantrum, because we feel wronged and it's not funny, because everybody has it, only we don't. Then it is time to remember this one. God is busy protecting you and equipping you. He is in the process of giving you everything you need. Even if He does it in a strange way, like through a dream, you simply have to be sensitive. And listen. God will provide everything you need. Just wait!

Blessings Pouring Down

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:31 -0500

If you are worrying about something or do not know how you will cope, or don't know where the money for the next instalment is coming from, God promises you this: He will never leave you. God will give you what you need! Just remember, this is not always everything that we want, but rather what we need.

Holy and Perfect in God's Eyes

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:28 -0500

Paul wrote to the congregation in response to the news that he had received about them. A letter addressing these irregularities and also reprimanding them. But he also teaches and encourages them and discusses those topics about which they were not clear.

Holy and Perfect in God's Eyes

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:23 -0500

Justified can be defined as follows: a state of moral perfection or flawlessness. Jesus made it so that the picture that God has of us is a perfect picture. This is where Jesus puts the sunglasses before God's eyes so that He sees only people without sin.

Bridge of Faith

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:19 -0500

We have a responsibility of faith in God. We must put energy into our relationship with God. How do you really get to know someone? Spend time with him. Walk the roads that he walks through the world, then you will understand that person's being. Then you will understand God's plans for your life. Then you will in a way experience God's awesome power in your own life. Then you will easily run across the bridge of faith.

Just As You Are

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:11 -0500

What reason do we have not to obey God's command for our lives? God is not looking for people who can do everything perfectly and who have the best training to do the job. God turns things upside-down, because He gives in-house training. He simply asks that you are willing - that's all. Whether you stutter or not. God wants you just as you are. Even if you are unimportant in the eyes of the world and even in the eyes of the church, it is you that the Lord wants. He even turns your value upside-down and you become important, you become invaluable for God's work that has to continue here on earth.

Are You Nuts?

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:48:04 -0500

Let's get back to the simple message and do what Paul says: 4... and so nothing I said could have impressed you or anyone else. But the Message came through anyway. God's Spirit and God's power did it...

God's Spirit in You

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:47:54 -0500

What wonderful news! It shows us another piece of God's heart. God is so different. Where will you ever find another god willing to give His Spirit to His children? Well, our God does it. Our God doesn't want us stumbling around in the darkness because we don't know Him. No, God wants us to get to know Him. Knowledge is very important in a good relationship. How can I work on my relationship with someone if I don't know him or her? God knows this. Therefore, He makes a plan and sends His Spirit to live in everyone who believes in Him.

A Plan to Save You

Sun, 09 Oct 2016 08:47:47 -0500

Sometimes we have to shut our eyes and peer past our circumstances. We must look at the past, where God's plan was nailed to a cross. Here we see God's whole heart and it is running over with one thing: Love. We must realize that God loved us so much that Jesus was prepared to hang on a cross so that we do not have to bear the punishment for our sins. God's plan came into effect to make it easy for us to get to heaven. That is God's heart.

Knowing I Can't Find God Is Our Self Defense Mechanism!

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 09:02:30 -0500

Far too many individuals coming to the Abraham based Religious Institutions are having a hard time finding the Creator of Heaven and Earth! This is unacceptable The issues most of us have with organized religion speaks to the integrity, credibility, and morals of these Abraham based Religious Institutions! Seriously, your eternal life is what's at stake! Take matters into your own hands before trusting a group of people that have serious problems! Look, we all have problems and issues in our lives, but there is a difference between a used car salesman and an honest individual. You can take charge of your own Salvation and the best place to start from is Law 82 of the 613 Laws of Moshe Maimon! Start studying the first five books of the Bible!

Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Seven

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 08:41:16 -0500

Of all of those Big Questions central to philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, the realms of theology and religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate in books, articles, videos, conversations in bars and pubs, and in fact anywhere and everywhere two or more humans are in proximity. There's the pro side; there's the anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as my seventh helping of "Religious Bits & Pieces" illustrate.

Would Martin Luther King Support Black Lives Matter?

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 10:12:34 -0500

Black lives matter has created considerable controversy over its approach to bringing about needed change in American society. At the heart of the controversy is the age old question of how best to create lasting change.

Overwhelmed By Grace

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 07:41:17 -0500

Does that title sound over the top, fanatical, way too religious, as if describing an ecstasy of high emotion? If it does, I must answer 'No that's not what I mean, but I'll tell you what I do mean'.

Walking In Agreement

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 09:21:41 -0500

Walking with God is being in His presence without any thought of petitioning or desiring anything from Him. It is just basking in the reality of His being. It is not about us; rather, it is all about Him.

Big Things Come From Small Things

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 08:52:39 -0500

Faith is like a seed. It starts as something small and over time grows into something larger that allows us to do great things in Christ's name.

Why Allah Is Killing Muslims

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 08:20:40 -0500

The suffering, poverty, displacement, and sheer horror that Muslims are experiencing in a world where they flee their own home-grown terrorism poses this question. The Mosques in which they unite with their God are breeding grounds for more of the same. Many are murdered or otherwise killed while undergoing sacred pilgrimages, such as the Hajj, and small orphaned children recovered from raids bring tears to the eyes of witnesses.

Why We Are In The Last Days

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 08:20:19 -0500

It is not hard to understand why we are in the last days. Many accept that this world is doomed and cannot survive man's behaviour much longer. The question is why?

Today - Christianity And Time

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:24:04 -0500

The words hit home, 'Nothing goes as fast as time' when I congratulated a person celebrating 25 years of business; it had indeed flown! 'Time flies' as the old saying goes. But what does time mean for Christianity? In a few short minutes, I need to think about this challenge.

Getting Messages From God

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 08:58:42 -0500

When God spoke to the people in Old Testament times, he pointed his final revelation in Jesus. Through Jesus, God provided the perfect vehicle of expression. He translated deity into humanity, and this revelation was absolute, infallible and authoritative. The world in its entirety was given to Christ as the heir of all things. As executor of the divine will, he will return one day to enforce all of its clauses.

Breaking Generational Curses (3)

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 08:09:03 -0500

God hates idolatry/occultism with passion. In fact, this is the primary reason why He warned Israel against marrying from other nations or allowing heathen foreigners to live in their midst. He didn't want them to be polluted by those idolatry nations. God warned them that idolatry and occultism, witchcraft, fortune-telling, sorcery, mediums or psychics, calling forth the spirits, Satanism, making marks on their bodies, sacrifices and rituals would bring down the divine punishment (curses) upon them and their subsequent generations, up to the forth generations. And if the next generations still refuse to repent, the curses will continue to extend indefinitely. My God! Please, before we go on, let's see some of the curses that will come upon those that get involve in idolatry and occultism. We see some of these manifesting in some families today. Yes, God has told us that the curses will be generational. That is, from parents to their children, to their children's children. And they will continue until anyone breaks out of the chain.

Get Ready For Your Exodus

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 08:11:33 -0500

Declare into the ears of God's people that like a bird that has been caught in a net, so are many of God's people. Get ready to be free and get ready for your exodus.

Time To Recover Confidence In The Gospel

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 13:13:34 -0500

The gospel of Christ is always at the forefront of spiritual battle, and never far from hostile opposition. Why is it so much ridiculed and despised, and has this caused Christians to go slow on living by the gospel and sharing its good news? Over the last 20 or 30 years sustained opposition to the gospel of Christ and to Christians in general, has been growing. In the face of all this should Christians soften their message to gain acceptance, or is it high time to recover confidence in the gospel and to share it prayerfully, powerfully and relevantly?

Trouble With Your Faith?

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 07:36:40 -0500

The problem with walking by faith is that we try to fit faith into our lifetime experiences. We can talk about faith, but to walk in faith is an entirely different thing. Weak faith is a result of weak reading.

Oldest Temples of Tamil Nadu

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:59:10 -0500

Tamil Nadu, known as the Land of Temples, has about 33,000 ancient temples and many of them are more than 1000 years old! People from all over India take temple tour packages to visit pilgrimages in Tamil Nadu as the state is dotted with majestic temples. These will reflect the rich culture and heritage of the state.

William Lane Craig's Evidence For God's Existence: A Rebuttal

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 08:40:11 -0500

Is there actual evidence for the existence of God? Is there actual hard-cord logic that requires the existence of God? Theist William Lane Craig thinks so and is one of those True Believers. I personally think Craig's evidence and logic is extremely flawed. Let's have an examination, and for those of you who want Craig's side of the story, he has his own website and numerous YouTube video clips. Bring along your popcorn and a large grain of salt.

The Love of Money Is the Root of All Evil

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:59:34 -0500

The pursuit of money or all the things it can buy is the problem. It shows that we are putting our faith, our sense of security and our hope for the future in material goods. Instead, we need to put our hope in God.

Why Allah Does Not Save Muslims

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 07:57:51 -0500

One can't watch the images of young children in places like Aleppo and Yemen who are suffering horrendous inhumanity without wondering why their God allows it? A recent report by a doctor in Yemin showed children starving to death while their communities are bombed by a Muslim army in Saudi Arabia. Other reports from Syria show tragic scenes of despair and horror as children bleed and die while their parents pray to Allah.

How Will People Be Happy in Heaven If People They Love Are Not There?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 11:09:47 -0500

Will people be really be happy in heaven if some of the people they love are not there? What does the Bible teach us about heaven, that can give us a hint towards answering this question?

How Many?

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 07:41:34 -0500

If you were to ask the average Christian (whatever that means) how many people they have led to Jesus Christ, the number would be alarmingly small. The majority of Christians know they have a spiritual obligation to share the Gospel, but how to do it is an entirely different question.

What Is Reality According To The Bible?

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 10:19:06 -0500

There is much ado about what constitutes reality. Many philosophers want to leave the Creator out of the picture and like to use the conundrums of sciences like quantum physics for that. Christians need not to be bothered by that.

Lord Ganesha to the Rescue

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 08:04:41 -0500

Ganesha the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is the bestower of good luck and prosperity. Know as the destroyer or removal of obstacles mankind has been blessed with riches and fortune since time immemorial.

Breaking Generational Curses (2)

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:25:38 -0500

One of the things that attract divine curses that will always run generational is idolatry. Idolatry is simply giving God's place or worship to other things. It means leaving the creator to worship the created.. This worship could be to Satan, spirits, demons, angels, humans, animals, etc. Or to their inanimate representation in rocks, stones woods, images, objects, etc. Any form of diversion of God's place and worship to any created being or object is idolatry.Those that there parents practiced occultism, idolatry will always have a heavy generational price to pay. And the deeper the practice, the harder the curse. Curses that follow idolatry and occultism are often terrible. And this is what many families are going through.True.

Why Am I So Self-Critical?

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 13:21:58 -0500

Quite apart from how much this question applies to me, my aim here is to extend it in a wide-reaching sweep that may even include you. I say that because as a Christian I know a little of my own heart and how this self-critical tendency is not always healthy and can be quite damaging to our mental composure. I need to develop this.

The Man Who Dismissed the Presence of God - The" Price" of Altruism

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 09:23:52 -0500

The article tells about the rise and fall of the man George R Price.It also tells about how his theory changed the rules set up by God.

Two Atypical Full-Time Mormon Missionaries: A Paradox

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:31:16 -0500

It is refreshing to hear salespeople tell the truth about what they are really selling, but what genuine snake oil salesman will freely admit that what he's selling, as a cure to a terrible disease, is really snake oil and nothing more? What real used-car salesman will admit to his gullible customer that the vehicle that he, or she, is representing as a mechanically sound automobile is really a dilapidated lemon. In like fashion, what typical Mormon full-time missionary will admit to a struggling Christian, who is a prospective Mormon, the truth about Mormon theology; that it is polytheistic in nature and content? These missionaries are conditioned in Provo, Utah, at the LDS Mission Training Center on the BYU Campus, to only provide their investigators with the scripted doctrines and theology contained in the standard six discussions. So, it is rare when two Mormon full-time missionaries tell the truth about real Mormon theology Christians. Recently, a Christian had this atypical experience. What occurred during this encounter was, and is, a poignant paradox.

Getting to Mormon Heaven: Ambiguous Salvation By Works Negating the Grace of Christ

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:28:08 -0500

The LDS (Mormon) Church does not publicize the very disturbing fact that a very large number of its active membership, men, women, and children, in the USA are an extremely depressed and dysfunctional segment of their religious society. These people are usually prescribed psychotropic drugs by LDS psychiatrists and psychologists who are employed by LDS Social Services, a Mormon Church-run organization designed to keep depressed Mormons actively involved in their church activities. The main reason that these men, women, and children are sorely depressed is because they believe that they can never be good enough to please their deity; and that if they can't succeed in doing something through human work, they are in some way inferior to other Mormons who can succeed in doing it. Unfortunately, they don't understand the true salvation that Jesus offers through his grace, through the shedding of his precious blood on the cross. Read on to understand the Mormon doctrine of salvation in comparison to the real Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Gifts From God

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:26:42 -0500

Each and every one of us is a gift from God. In addition, God has given each of us different gifts. He wants us to use these gifts to do his work in our world. With these gifts we can do mighty things. God has gifted all of his people differently so that together they might work in unity for the sole purpose of the Gospel.

The Consequences of Sin

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 08:26:10 -0500

The consequences of sin are hard. The price is heavy. It's time to plead for God's mercy. It's time to confess our sins and ask God to restore and rebuild us. We must not give up on God, because he does not give up on us. God can break the cycle of sin. God wants us to come to him because we love him, and not because we think God will bring us good things.

Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Six

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 08:05:50 -0500

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as my sixth essay over and on "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.

Jesus' Death Is For Today

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 10:00:08 -0500

This title makes a large claim, and as Jesus' death by crucifixion took place nearly two thousand years ago, how on earth could it still be relevant today? In this brief article I will not deal with the historic nature of Jesus' death. There is an abundance of material that confirms the many evidences for his death. So here, I am rather thinking about how Jesus' death has a powerful relevance to people today.

If Allah Is Great Why Does She Not Save Her People?

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 15:36:01 -0500

In a typical religious ploy of deceitful manoeuvres Muslims believe that only in death will they receive favors from Allah. They are as confused and misled by the after-life as the rest of the world. Religion deals in magic and slight of hand.

Allah and Mary Are the Same Queen of Heaven and the Sun

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 15:35:53 -0500

After my reincarnation and with knowledge that heaven and hell are non-existent my search for the facts about religious origins came with me from my former life. It was during the transition to this life that a vision showed me what was ahead and that the age of 45 years would be special. That is when the Spirit came and commissioned me to 'tear down the wall of churches and bring in the harvest.

The Focused Prayer Life

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:23:58 -0500

I wonder how many Believers find it difficult to stay focused when they pray. I know it is difficult to admit that we might have "prayer anemia," but to go through a form of praying with a lack of excitement and expectation if falling short of what is expected of every Believer.

Atheist Minister - Say What?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 08:08:21 -0500

Gretta Vosper, a popular 57 year old Canadian minister who calls herself an atheist minister preached for nearly two decades about love, kindness, and human connection. Recently she was deemed "unsuitable to continue serving" by the United Church of Canada's Toronto Conference Review Committee.

God's Grace Is for Everyone

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:49:26 -0500

No one deserves or earns salvation. It is all about God and His grace. Jesus did everything right so we could be made right. In spite of our sins, he continues to reach out to us. He continually promises to heal and help those who come to him.

Why the Soul Is Not Mentioned in the Old Testament

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:45:25 -0500

The soul is an entity invented by men in the belief that they could become suns in the sky when married to 'Mary', the name of the sun in Babylon. 'Soul' is from 'sol' for 'sun' and it literally means 'light-circle-god'. The description means it applies to the followers of the religion of that city, which is known as 'Zoro Aster' or 'morning star'.

Mary Is Described As Babylon the Great and the Mother of Harlots - Why?

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 07:41:53 -0500

Anyone who reads through Revelation Chapter 17 knows immediately who it is addressing. There is only one Mary and it was taken to Rome from Babylon by the Amor who built Roma (reverse Amor). 'She' is the stylised version of the sun-star whom men created so they could 'marry' Mary.

The Sad and Ugly Deceit Surrounding Catholic Saints

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 10:15:21 -0500

What makes people so gullible as to believe in the stories and hype surrounding so-called saints? With the latest deception fresh in our minds as the 'canonisation' of yet another dead person shifted focus once more to the heavenly realm the sheep were out in force to follow. They are deceived and unrighteous fools who are dragged into the net of deceit that has served to make the Catholic Church the richest organisation on earth.

The First Beast of Revelation 13 - Who Is It?

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:28:49 -0500

Prophecies in Revelation are full of mysteries and wonders. They speak of beasts and angels and other things that clearly are not physical in nature and yet what is shown therein is reality. We are in the last days and the promise is that at this time all things will be known including the identity of the two beasts described therein.

The Catholic Church Is Worse Than ISIS

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:27:40 -0500

While ISIS is the current focus of terror and extreme violence it is because the things of the past are not in the media. Following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only God, my pain from past experiences at the hands of religious zealots and the Catholic Church was not deadened. On the contrary my first day at school resulted in a hard kick to the nun's shin and a terrifying flight home as it all returned.

The Religious Preach of a Forgiving and Merciful God While They Ignore the Truth

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:27:35 -0500

God is not merciful or forgiving of those who are worshipers of false gods and spreaders of religious lies. To be qualified as a preacher one must attend a university and get a PhD so that the lies come out with conviction and credibility. One taught by God, however, requires no such accreditation and following my reincarnation and with a strong link to the Spirit it taught me the truth long before I could even understand it.

The Ugly Deceit and Horror of Religion

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 07:26:44 -0500

People go to church believing that they are serving God when in reality they're victims of 666. My reincarnation and link to the Spirit of the Universe happened for a reason. Between lives a vision showed me that at age of 45 years my work would commence to overturn religious lies.

The Work of Ministry

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 14:28:00 -0500

Every believer is meant to be doing something in the house of God. God's plan for His church is that we should participate and not be idle in the work of ministry.

Pitching Mormon Theology Into the 21st Century: Robert Millet Before the Harvard Divinity School

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 11:56:38 -0500

The fashion in which Mormon theology and doctrine is publicly represented by the LDS Church before the Christian world is greatly different from the way Jehovah's Witnesses, Christian Science, the Unification Church (Moonies), Scientology, Adventism, and Bahia represent themselves before the world public. Mormonism officially endeavors to hide its unchristian 19th Century doctrines by its policy of "lying for the Mormon lord," while the other aforementioned cults, and many others not mentioned, are proud their pagan doctrines and will truthfully inform their prospective members, and, in fact, anyone who asks about them, about them. In March of 2001, Robert L. Millet, an academic representative of Mormonism, inaugurated the 21st Century with the Mormon Church's public rendition of its theology before the notable Christian theologians and scholars of the Harvard Divinity School, most of whom knew very little about the true 19th Century doctrinal history of the LDS Church. Exactly what did Robert L. Millet say during this presentation? Read on for an elucidation of these issues...

Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Five

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 10:03:55 -0500

Philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, including those realms of theology, religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate. There's the theist pro side; there's the atheist anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following fifth instalment of "religious bits and pieces" illustrate.

The Bible Is a Soup of Mixed Ideas From Several Authors and Establishments

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 21:52:02 -0500

It appears to be a pastime of some authors to ridicule and deny the existence of God when they clearly have no idea about the overall picture. With memory of my reincarnation and a strong link to the Spirit of the Universe (the one real God) that picture is revealed. It begins with a powerful and overall precise plan that ends with man's stupidity and his false gods and ideas that interfere with it.

Religion Is the Greatest Fraud Ever Practised

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 10:48:30 -0500

When men blow themselves up in the name of Allah they have no idea that they are doing it for the sun. 'Allah' is from 'el-a' and it means 'god of power' and in Babylon it was the sun, Mary. The latter name means 'mother's powerful eye' and it was the object of religious formation and the start of Islam.

Why Constantine Invented the Lie of Jesus Christ

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 10:48:21 -0500

The confusion brought about by lies and cover up, led mainly by the Vatican, created a huge wall of blindness from behind which the man numbered as 666 rules the world. He did God's bidding, however, by putting forth an image that many consider represents the Divine. He is the second beast of Revelation and his name is Constantine who established the Roman Catholic Church in the year 325 of the modern era.

They Preach a Lie in My Name (Jeremiah 27:10)

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 08:09:57 -0500

My reincarnation and knowledge that heaven and hell are fake and that man has grown in power due to the false gods and idolatry of religious systems led me to uncover the lie. My strong link to the Spirit of the Universe, the only real God, brought about a commission to "tear down the wall of churches and bring back the young." Months and years of teaching followed and the full picture of God's plan came to be known.

The Trinity God of Christianity Is a Big Con

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 09:39:58 -0500

Oh what a tangled web has been woven by the lies of the Catholic Church and its book, the New Testament. The latter was compiled by Jerome late 4th Century after the religion was established by Constantine in the year 325. The Emperor was an Islamist and a descendent of the Amors who had occupied Babylon, created the Persian Empire, and who built Roma (reverse Amor).

The Significance of the Five Point Star in Islam and Christianity

Sat, 03 Sep 2016 11:24:12 -0500

The 5-point star is everywhere and very hard to miss. It sits on the shoulders of generals in just about every military system. It's on war machines and police vehicles and above major buildings including the Kremlin whilst it's also on the flags of most nations, including that of Australia, the USA, and China.

Why Is Baptism Only Mentioned in the New Testament?

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 07:23:42 -0500

If one could believe all of the bible and come to terms with the many contradictions in it then one must also question the reason why baptism is only mentioned in the New Testament. In the first chapters of Genesis there is no such condition placed on humans as far as salvation or abiding by the law of God is concerned. In the Old Testament the only law associated with man is circumcision of the penis, which is a Jewish law.

An Explanation of the Trinity Found in Christianity

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 14:13:06 -0500

The trinity is the most difficult thing to explain in Christianity but it is the best method to come to know God and have a relationship with Him. Since God is a spiritual being, it is only through the spirit that we can obtain fellowship with our Creator. Jesus Christ is the bridge between God and humanity. It is only through Christ that we can receive the Holy Spirit.

Why Say That God Is Eternal, If He Didn't Create an Eternal Nature?

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 10:43:54 -0500

Some atheists would say, if God is eternal why didn't he create an eternal nature? However, God does plan to create an eternal nature but inhabited by those that willfully chose to believe in Him and obey Him. This was His plan from the beginning.

God - The Eternal Manager Of Our Universe

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 09:33:55 -0500

God is managing the Universe, its living beings for billions of years. and He is perfect. Humanity has invented new concepts such as; the Day of Judgement, permanency of the soul, and idol worship. We may be against idol worship, but our religious rituals have a tinge of idol worship. If our ancestors were persecuted by religious fundamentalists few centuries/ millenniums earlier, we settle our score with the present generation. We aggravate the problems. We have a divided humanity. Let's unify it.

The Power of the Holy Spirit in the World

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 08:29:30 -0500

No one can stand in the way of God and not be punished. Christianity has nothing to do with the magic and superstition of the world. The power of God's Word and the power of the Holy Spirit overcomes them all.

Yet Another Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces Encore

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 07:15:18 -0500

Of all of those Big Questions central to philosophical concepts that surround life, the universe and everything, the realms of theology and religions and the nature of deities continue to fascinate. Opinions proliferate in books, articles, videos, conversations in bars and pubs, and in fact anywhere and everywhere two or more humans are in proximity. There's the pro side; there's the anti-side. There aren't too many fence-sitters. I'm still in the anti-camp as the following fourth instalment of "bits and pieces" illustrate.
