Going Mad?

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 14:47:39 -0500

When do people lose it? Sometimes when your circumstances become too much to deal with.

The First Will Be Last and the Last Will Be First In God's Kingdom

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 07:40:14 -0500

How many of us have felt that someone treated us unfairly? Has someone favoured another person over us? All of us have endured some hurt when our dreams are dashed or ambitions denied. Preferred treatment can lay the foundation for bitter memories. Does our ill treatment serve a greater good? Do others in need benefit? Sometimes we endure unequal treatment in the name of justice. In Matthew's gospel, Jesus presented the Kingdom as one of justice, not necessarily of fairness. According to Jesus, the faithful, even those who practiced faith all life long, did not earn the Kingdom. God gave His children the Kingdom as a gift.

Are You Playing House?

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 07:01:46 -0500

18Don't tolerate people who try to run your life, ordering you to bow and scrape, insisting that you join their obsession with angels and that you seek out visions. They're a lot of hot air, that's all they are.

Free in Christ

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 07:20:43 -0500

Nowadays you find people who want to convince you of one or another faith principle all over the place. Just look around you on Sundays.

Jesus Lives, Jesus Heals

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 07:19:42 -0500

A day after my surgery, weary but rejoicing in my health, I learnt another truth- Jesus had borne my own sickness. And that through the singular act of atonement, He had taken upon Himself all my suffering. I was suddenly filled not just with remorse for my blinding self-conceit, but also with gratitude.

Some Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Eighteen

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 09:27:41 -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 eighteenth helping of "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.

The Bible Seems Like A Hopeless Jumble - How Do You Sort It Out?

Sat, 16 Sep 2017 09:21:30 -0500

I started to read the Bible but there was so much that seemed totally weird - a great God who created everything, but who built into the human sub-beings the freedom to go way off track. After that, all was hatred, bloodshed, incessant warring, and idol worship, strange goings on, s deep discussions, a hymnbook, and prophets who seem to know the future. Then Jesus came to fix things, but was killed, and claimed to rise again. Really, how come Christianity makes so much of all these ancient writings?

True Calling On Laborers

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 09:35:17 -0500

The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few - Luke 10:2. You are either on God's side or you are on the side of the Lucifer so, tell me whose side are you? God or... ? God having made man in His own image so that man-kind will do His (God's) own will. What is God's Will, Genesis 2:15 says the Lord took man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. And God commanded man in verse 16-17 not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, but if did he'll die. The first work gave man is to labor on the vineyard of Eden because God Himself worked in Genesis chapter one so, man is to manage the created works of God The second is different from the first one, a law that must be kept without any objection '"do not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil".

Being Nearsighted

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 21:20:46 -0500

Gideon faced insurmountable odds when the Midianites attacked his land. Instead of looking at the situation as an opportunity to see the power of God, he saw it without God being involved. What was the answer?

Street Festival

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 15:03:27 -0500

When it's time for the Olympic Games, everybody watches sport. Doesn't matter how strange or unfamiliar the kind of sport is, everybody sits glued to their TV screens.

All-Out Action

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 15:03:12 -0500

We must hear about the forgiveness of sin and what Jesus did for us on the cross again and again and in different ways so that we can really experience it. Every moment of the day we must know what Jesus did and then live victoriously.

Forgive Again, And Again, And Again

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 07:15:39 -0500

When it comes to forgiveness, how much is enough? How much do we need to forgive? How often should we be doing all we can to wash away the stains which weaken the bonds between us, which take their toll on our own sense of well-being - our very own peace, not to mention the peace between us?

Keeping Hope Alive

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 08:26:46 -0500

Proverbs 13:12 "Hope deferred makes the heart sick..." - An experiment was done by Curt Richter in 1950. He did series of experiment to test how long rats could swim in a high sided buckets of circulating water before they drown. Dr. Richter found out in a normal circumstance that a rat could swim for an average of 50 minutes before giving up and sinking. However, if you rescue the rat just before drowning, dry them off and let them rest briefly then put them back in the same bucket of circulating water, the rat could swim for an average of 60 hours.

Some Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Seventeen

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 07:09:30 -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 seventeenth helping of "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.

Eid Holidays Date and Ramadan Fasting

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 10:08:38 -0500

This festival of breaking of the fast, is an important religious holiday celebrated by Islamic worldwide that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of down to sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan.

Tear Up Those Overdrafts

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 06:45:39 -0500

People are so used to having accounts - we actually love accounts. I don't know if this is because it makes us feel important to open our wallets and pick and choose which card to use.

To See God Through Your Actions

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:24:10 -0500

What makes our faith different from other religions? God climbed off his throne and came to live among us.

The Fruits of an Intimate Relationship With God

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:24:01 -0500

Let's look at our relationship with God again. We must be singled-minded in our pursuit of an intimate relationship with God.

God's Truth or Not

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:23:51 -0500

Each of us has a personal responsibility to test whether the information we hear and see fits within God's truth. So many people spread their own understanding of the Bible as the only correct way of understanding.

Roots of Faith

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:23:38 -0500

I've found that faith is never an issue until we face some kind of trouble. Then, suddenly, a whole lot of questions pop up and before we know it, doubt comes knocking on the door.

Like a Tree With Deep Roots

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:23:35 -0500

This is your instruction: 6You received Christ Jesus, the Master; now live him. We must stop living like children of God only now and then.

Pushing Against the Gate

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:23:34 -0500

We've been living in this house for 10 years and we really like living here. The house has a flat roof with concealed guttering (the gutters are hidden behind the facia boards to make the house look prettier).

All You Need

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 07:19:55 -0500

We don't have the skills to walk through life on our own. Just look at our track record, it doesn't look good.

The Passover Meal and the Lord's Supper

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:51:50 -0500

God cares for us just like he cared for his children in Egypt long ago. In fact, He made a way for us to get out of our messes too. Just like Pharaoh, we have our ups and downs, but Jesus died on the cross for all the wrong things we have done. If we believe in him and ask him to come into our hearts, he makes a way for us to go to Heaven.

No-Go Zones for the US and How Militant Islam May Be Neutralized

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 09:14:39 -0500

With Europe being trashed by Muslim immigrants, many wonder what's coming to the US. We have some no-go zones, but here is a prophetic picture that's right on target.

In and Out the Casket at Our Funeral

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 11:54:36 -0500

In Colossians 2, Paul tells the people clearly and persistently about Jesus' death on the cross and what it means for sin. We are going to look at this subject a few times.

Hurricane Harvey And The Religious Right Wing

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 08:23:30 -0500

Are 'natural' disasters (like Hurricane Harvey) acts by Mother Nature or acts by God? If they are acts by God then they are signs of God's wrath against the wicked. God's wrath is the position taken by the extreme elements of the religious Christian right-wing fundamentalists and evangelists. It's hogwash.

A Mystery Revealed

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 08:17:10 -0500

Paul was chosen to reveal a mystery (secret) that would engulf every human being. No longer would God's people be limited to the Jews, but an "open adoption" was offered to anyone who accepted His Son.

Final Cut

Mon, 04 Sep 2017 08:16:34 -0500

Sometimes my wife gets quite upset when I forget to bring what she asked for from the shops. Many are the times I've been sent to get bread only to return with everything but bread.

Do the Work God Assigns to You - No Excuses Accepted

Fri, 01 Sep 2017 07:19:26 -0500

It's often in wilderness experiences that we really see God at work, and the events Exodus 3:1-15 are a good example. Moses grew up in a position of privilege in Pharaoh's palace, but because he killed an Egyptian, he fled into the wilderness. Forty years later, we see him tending his father-in-law's flock when God gets his attention. God appeared in an ordinary way that was extraordinary at the same time.

The Truth About Islam

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 09:56:46 -0500

Throughout the centuries of religions, Islam has perceived to be one of the most renowned religions of all time. Through its rivalries against Christianity and Judaism, Islam has made a huge impact today as it has created over 1.5 billion followers, many of them originally being non-Muslims. Islam was well put together for many centuries but all of that changed on September 11, 2001. Islam was never treated the same by non-Muslims. Islam is currently in a state of controversy today as most of you non-Muslims are misguided or confused by what you see in the media. I am here to correct you non-Muslims misconception about both women treatment and violence in Islam.

Money-Minting Tirupati

Wed, 30 Aug 2017 08:11:37 -0500

Way back in 1970, the agnostic Khushwant Singh carried an intrepid article in 'The Illustrated Weekly'. It was on Tirupati temple in South. The article was based upon devout people's collective stupidity to donate money and also their hair. Khushwant added a very pertinent statement: 'Bribery is so deeply inveterate in the consciousness of Indians that we nonchalantly bribe even our gods and they too happily get bribed!'

How to Survive the Storms of Life

Tue, 29 Aug 2017 21:11:16 -0500

The story of Paul's voyage to Rome, part of which we heard in Acts 27:27-44, with its trials and triumphs, is an example of the way of faith all through the story of human life. Its remarkable feature is the hard and narrow places which we find intermingled with God's most extraordinary plans and providences. It's full of examples of night and day experiences.

What Your Pastor May Not Tell You About Miracles

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 06:56:22 -0500

Sunday last week, I attended a church service in one of the pentecostal churches in Lagos, Nigeria. A friend, who claimed to be born-again and spirit-filled, was the one that invited me to the church. He is a member of the church.

Sitting, Standing, and Walking

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 06:55:40 -0500

The Christian life is a life of progression. It is more than simply confessing what we believe; rather, it is a continual life-changing experience that pursues the on-going revelations of the Holy Spirit.

To Whom Is Revelation 17:1 Referring To?

Sat, 26 Aug 2017 07:41:16 -0500

We are told that she sits upon many 'waters', and that means 'seas'. Religion is a sea which spreads over the land and soaks into the ground, which is a metaphor for people. The Catholic Church identifies itself as the 'Holy See', although it's changed the noun from 'sea'.

Faith Makes the Impossible Possible

Thu, 24 Aug 2017 15:29:54 -0500

Have you ever noticed that some people are threatened by the prosperity and success of other people? If you're looking for a good example of this, you don't have to look any further than the passage from Exodus 1:8-2:10.

Why Uncovering Religious Deception Is Important

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 21:05:10 -0500

With people rampaging and killing many so they can get to heaven it has created an urgency to expose the organisations that support these things. Islam is the culprit because it started as a violent and hate filled religion whose roots are in Babylon, its original home. This is what most people don't get because the many branches of it have refined their doctrines to the point where there is no obvious connection.

Salvation Gospel: God Is Worthy To Be Praised

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 10:44:00 -0500

God is worthy to receive all the Glory, Honour and Power. He alone is qualified to receive all of it. None other person (living or dead; physical or spiritual; visible or invisible; etc) is eligible to take an infinitesimal part of the glory. God's glory should not be shared by any other.

Citizens of Zion

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 09:15:44 -0500

Ephesians 6: 19 "Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God's people and also members of His household". Life is spiritual like it is always said. In other words, life begins from the spiritual realm, the realm that can't be seen with the human eyes but through the eyes of faith, we see it.

More Counter-Arguments to Christian Theist Arguments

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:51:43 -0500

Theists in general and Christians in particular have put forth dozens of arguments and written thousands of books as to why God exists, why Jesus was resurrected, why the Bible is a true account of God's word and divine plan, and so on and so on. Atheists don't believe a word of this but of necessity have to put up some counter arguments. Here's another round of arguments atheists can use against theists when you ask them what they believe and why, or they ask you why you don't, and why.

Criticism of Behaviour Is Not Hate When It's the Truth

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 06:43:49 -0500

How many think that criticism of a religion or system proven to be incorrect is hate? Religions that worship the sun and moon as gods are among the evil things of the world. Neither of the celestial bodies can be considered divine when they are only inanimate objects that perform in the universal structure.

Name Them One By One

Mon, 21 Aug 2017 08:02:15 -0500

Believers are the most blessed people in the world, at least according to Biblical script. Yet in reality, our behavior seems to conflict the evidence of spiritual blessings. We are so blessed, yet we don't act like it.

What Is Sharia Law and How Is It Infiltrating Western Democracy?

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 09:43:55 -0500

It is supposed to be the law of Islam, that is as cast from Muhammad's words. He supposedly dictated the Quran. It regulates public and private behaviour and even private beliefs.

How Closely Aligned Is the Islamic Faith With Christianity?

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 09:43:41 -0500

Most people would be horrified at the suggestion and yet they are not only closely aligned but the Christian Faith was born directly from Babylonian Islamic religion. While the incorrect stories of Jesus Christ and the virgin birth have been brain-washed into just about everyone in the west, it never happened. This event was the brain-child of Constantine, Roman Caesar and murderer of hundreds of thousands, and he is 666 (Revelation 13:12-18) The deception that the Catholic Church has engaged in since he established it in 325 AD is mind-blowing.

Those Tens of Thousands of Young, Frenetic, and Deceived Mormon Missionaries

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 19:08:25 -0500

From early 1961, the six-discussion-toting Mormon (LDS) full-time missionaries began to exude, by the thousands, from the LDS Mission Training Center, on the BYU campus in Provo, Utah, to be sent all over the USA, Canada, and most of the free-world, to barrage unwitting Christians with a standard uniform presentation of Mormon theology, doctrine, and history containing deliberately prepared misrepresentations and outright lies about real Mormon theology, doctrine and history. Decades have passed since 1961, and now their are approximately 90,000 full-time Mormon missionaries ubiquitously working throughout the world, especially the in the USA to lead struggling Christian souls into a web of theological and doctrinal deception for the purpose of deceiving them into believing that Mormonism is Christian and totally biblical in theology and doctrine. But Mormonism is not Christian to any degree, but a cult dedicated to a theology of pagan polytheism. The purpose of this article is to educate those Christians who have been led to believe that a Mormon knock on their doors is an invitation to learn about Christianity. It is not! Read on for an explication of these issues...

The World Blinded by Religious Deceit

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 08:34:50 -0500

The depth of lies and misinformation by religious organisations is so great that it has boxed everyone inside it. There is no escape as any attempt to correct it is instantly thwarted by rhetoric and threats that lead to a fear so horrendous that no one wants to go there. That is called 'hell' and an eternal fire of pain and suffering.

Why Is God A Powerful Spirit in the Old Testament and a Male Trinity in the New Testament?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 22:30:41 -0500

Genesis Chapter 1 verses 1 and 2 describes God as the Great Creator and Spirit. This is repeated throughout the Old Testament (OT) but in the New Testament (NT) things have changed. God is suddenly a male entity of three parts, which is foolhardy and unacceptable to rational readers of the bible.

Why Is God Concerned With Israel in the Old Testament and the World in the New Testament?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 22:30:36 -0500

There is a great divide between the two gods of the bible. In the Old Testament (OT) it is the Great Spirit of the Universe while the New Testament (NT) is an invention of Constantine, who is 666 in Revelation 13:18. The religion of the latter is the Catholic Church from which all of Christianity arose.

What Is Vashikaran?

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 11:11:24 -0500

'Vashikaran' is comprised by joining of two words- 'vashi' and 'karan'. It literally means to control someone else's thoughts and actions. Vashikaran is also a science and is very much true.

Stumbling Faith

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 07:03:27 -0500

The Colossians' faith was something special, an example even for Paul: 5... I am delighted to hear of the careful and orderly ways you conduct your affairs, and impressed with the solid substance of your faith in Christ. Even though things weren't going that well for them, even though they were by far in the minority, even though they were sometimes persecuted simply for believing in Jesus, they did not turn their backs on Jesus. Nothing they had to face could steal their faith in God.

Pictures From the Heart

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 07:02:44 -0500

People don't always realise that the way they act reflects what is going on inside their hearts. Your actions are linked directly to your heart.

Back to the Nets

Sun, 13 Aug 2017 16:07:27 -0500

How many Believers are in self-imposed exile? We are harder on ourselves than Jesus would be. Jesus knows that we love Him, no matter what we have done. He still has things for us to do, but we must first surrender our "nets" of entanglement.

Richest Treasures

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 10:03:00 -0500

Every day we see shiny treasures being advertised on television, on billboards along the road, and in catalogues left in our mail boxes. Shiny, expensive diamonds in rings and necklaces looking so very appealing.

Arguments and So On

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 10:02:35 -0500

I don't like arguing. I suspect it's because I'm too dumb to understand everything at once.

Is Religion a Thinking Tool for The Spiritually Uninformed?

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 08:12:06 -0500

While they are strong words the undeniable fact puts religions of all persuasion into the category of being thinking tools for the spiritually uninformed. They are all products of sun-worship. The systems are born of ancient practices at a time when the earth was flat, the cosmos was a continuation of the ocean, and creation happened in six days.

False Healers Versus Jesus, the True Healer

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 11:44:06 -0500

Have you ever wondered if people who claim to heal in Jesus' name are true healers or fake healers? If so, you're not alone. People have had the same question throughout history, and we see that in the passage from Acts 19:11-20.

Not Even Jealousy Can Stop God

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 11:43:37 -0500

Have you ever been so jealous of someone that you couldn't speak to them or perhaps you even hated them? This envy comes from deep insecurity and has led to the downfall of many people. The passage from Genesis 37:1-4,12-28 reveals the dangers of playing favourites. God constantly uses the lives of Bible characters to teach us, encourage us and warn us.

Crime Is a Tool Used by God

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 09:31:44 -0500

The evil in the world is such that it has plunged the planet into extreme darkness. People kill each other and the world stands now on a precipice waiting for the conflagration that may end everything. As the threat of nuclear war looms larger and is possibly closer than at any other time many are reflecting on why it happening.

Angels of Light or Dark, Twisted Minds

Thu, 10 Aug 2017 06:47:42 -0500

Having never heard of the expression 'angels of light' it was run into the Search Engines and the result was extremely confusing. It appears that it is a description of Satan and others who do its work. Well, that leaves me stunned because it was posted as a comment on an article in which my reincarnation was mentioned.

Does God Exist? And The Great Intellectual Trap

Tue, 08 Aug 2017 14:39:38 -0500

There is proof of the existence of God. But the real question we must ask isn't if God exists. It's what is the nature of God?

Threads of Love

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:54:05 -0500

Listen to these lovely words: 2I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. Then you will have minds confident and at rest, focused on Christ, God's great mystery.

Some Anti-Theist Religious Bits & Pieces: Round Sixteen

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:53:39 -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 sixteenth helping of "Religious Bits and Pieces" illustrate.

The Difference Between Sins And Sinfulness

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:51:45 -0500

According to conservative Christian doctrine we have a sinful nature from conception. Yet humans are capable of good, as the Lord shows when He states that no parent will give a stone for a bread. There is also much difference between Catholics and Protestants as to the doctrine of being born again.

Why Are Catholics So Vulnerable and Accepting of Their Faith?

Mon, 07 Aug 2017 06:41:13 -0500

It's a question that has puzzled me all my life. Watching them perform their rituals while willingly accepting the many lies and false messages tha church leaders dish out leaves me stunned. With memory of my reincarnation and knowledge that everyone has returned the same way and that there is no heaven or hell made me aware of the myths they take for granted.

Whose Way?

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 18:09:32 -0500

The key to success in our Kingdom journey is to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes the Believers want to see the result before an action is initiated. What it comes down to, is whose way to we choose to follow?

Why Is Sunday the Holiest Day For Christians?

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 08:32:30 -0500

How many Christians regularly go to church on Sunday and never question why? What is different about this day than any other? Who made it the holiest day and when?

The Origin of the Muslim Claim of Seven Virgins in Paradise

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 08:24:57 -0500

A documentary on the archaeology of the Tower of Babel led me to the conclusion that it was used for producing the sun-star. This was shown to me in a vision when commissioned by the Spirit of the Universe to tear down the wall of blindness and expose the roots of religion. My reincarnation confirmed that religions are based on myths as there is no heaven or hell, while devils, angels, and saints are part of the window dressing.

My Power Source

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 10:04:50 -0500

In the previous section we heard that like Paul, we must go all out to share the Gospel. Like an athlete goes all out to win a race, we must use all our energy to make a difference wherever we go.

Jesus According to the Gospels

Sat, 05 Aug 2017 10:03:01 -0500

Jesus was either a supernatural entity, a mortal human, or purely mythological. There's no independent non-Biblical source that can be verified for a supernatural Jesus and nothing that's contemporary with the actual time of Jesus to verify even his mortal status. The gospels are so inconsistent that it is hard to believe they are recording actual events, so I conclude in all probability that Jesus is a mythological being, like Hercules, thus accounting for why his actual existence can't be historically verified, nor can his alleged miracles.

Having a Heart for Others

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 12:02:52 -0500

One day when I get to heaven one of my first appointments will be with Paul. I would really like to get to know him personally; he was such a remarkable man.

Wrestling With God

Thu, 03 Aug 2017 06:55:56 -0500

How many of you have wrestled with God and ended up being changed by the experience? If you have, you know what happened to Jacob in Genesis 32:22-31.

Misconceived Love

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 08:34:50 -0500

Is love OK with sin? Does God love everyone who ever lived? This article will clarify the truth regarding these important questions.

The Sophistry of Mormon Apologetics, Nephite Coins, and One Apologist's Utterly Confused Dilemma

Tue, 01 Aug 2017 06:56:24 -0500

What if Edgar Rice Burroughs had, in 1912, used his vivid and creative imagination to fabricate a book about a man in Africa, Tarzan, regarded as a god by all the indigenous black tribes, and given super-human powers by the pagan gods of the earth? He could have easily done this with his profound ability to contrive believable fiction. Could he have possibly created a religious following by producing such a version of "Tarzan of the Apes?" A good and wise person once responded to my claim in 1976, as a Mormon missionary, that Joseph Smith, Jr. had done something humanly impossible by creating a book about ancient America called the Book of Mormon, about the ancient indigenous inhabitants of America. He simply replied that Edgar Rice Burroughs had done it more correctly than Smith. I had then arrogantly disregarded what he had said, but later realized that while Smith had concocted an unbelievable anachronistic story about the Native Americans by not doing his research about Mesoamerica, Burroughs had done his homework about Africa. Smith and his literary cohorts were inventive, but very wrong about Ancient America, especially about religious and cultural details. Read on for an explication...

Bible Prophecies Deny the Christian Trinity and the Existence of Heaven and Hell

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 20:03:19 -0500

The hiatus in religious beliefs came about some 2,000 years ago when Christianity came to life and the work of 666 took hold. Yes, the two things are linked because the latter established the Catholic Church and built the first Christian places of worship. He invented Jesus Christ and recycled the Islamic religion and Mother God of Babylon in such a way as to hide the roots.

Draining The Swamp

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 20:03:11 -0500

Political and Religious corruption has been an issue of concern for generations. Almost every newly elected politician faces the challenge to eradicate the quagmire of self interest groups in the political arena. Sadly with the religious community there also is a swamp of corruption.

Go to Zarephath (2)

Sun, 30 Jul 2017 10:39:23 -0500

The 'brook' may cease but our source is unstoppable! When the brook at Cherith dried up, God opened another channel at Zarephath. The brook was just a channel but heaven was the real source. Maybe your brook, the channel, the instrument God has been using to sustain you has stopped or is about to, don't panic yet, because there is another, greater door that is opening for you today! You will see it! As you read and believe this message, the doors are opening for you in the name of Jesus! God is our actual source and He never dries up! The streams may cease, the ravens may fly away, the meat and the bread may stop, but our divine source, the ocean of wealth - Jehovah will never run out of supplies.

Poetic Justice

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:25:58 -0500

How many of you have heard the sayings, "What goes around comes around," or "You reap what you sow?" Either saying would apply to the passage from Genesis 29:15-28. Jacob was born grasping his brother Esau's heel, and that's how he lived his life-grasping for all he could get by his own ingenuity and power.

Eyewitnesses to the Christian Faith

Sat, 29 Jul 2017 12:25:39 -0500

The doctrines the disciples held about Jesus were not defended by weak reasoning, but were based on solid eyewitness testimony. Peter, James and John were eyewitnesses to the Transfiguration. When the coming of the Saviour was referred to by the disciples in their preaching, it was always accompanied by a declaration that it would be accompanied by a show of great power and glory.

In The Beginning: God Done It? No, Pixies Done It!

Fri, 28 Jul 2017 18:03:46 -0500

In any text that mentions "God", just substitute the word "Pixie" or "Pixies" for God and the text will still make perfect rational sense. It's just substituting the name of one imaginary entity for another. I could go through the entire Bible and substitute for various key characters Father Pixie, Son of Pixie, and Ghost of Pixie. The texts would still make the exact same amount of sense as before-the-fact - which is to say very little.

The Human Race Is Designed for Conflict

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 08:27:16 -0500

There is no reason for human behaviour except that we are designed for conflict. It started with weapons to destroy life. They included sticks and stones for warding off predators until an expansion into better ways of throwing them came about.

Fear Is Mind Control and a Trap for Power

Wed, 26 Jul 2017 06:54:40 -0500

This emotion is used by religious organisations and commercial businesses to control how people act and even how they think. One of the best examples of this has to do with insurance. In today's world most fear not to have it in case something happens and they have to pay money to either replace their asset or to repair it.

Remembering Our Faith

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 22:31:39 -0500

Psalm 105 is filled with the memory of what God has done for his people. His deeds are based on His covenant with Abraham-a covenant that He never forgets. The covenant promised Canaan as Israel's inheritance. He protected His prophets. He sent Moses to bring His people out of bondage. He judged the Egyptians with plagues. He provided for the Israelites in the wilderness. He gave the Israelites their land.

No Need to Find Another Hall

Tue, 25 Jul 2017 22:30:19 -0500

When people ask me what church I belong to, I always say I'm interdenominational. I don't think God intended that there should be so many different churches each with its own take on things.

Envy or Coveting

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 10:19:58 -0500

Envy or coveting is a feeling of discontent and resentment aroused by someone else's possessions, achievements and happiness, wishing them to be lost. An envious person is always jealous of every blessing he sees on or with other people.

Evangelist Apollos

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:18:54 -0500

Apollos had received teachings from his "denominational" headquarters and presented accurately the truth that was taught him. The problem was the teachings he received had not hone far enough.

To Have the Right Papers

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 07:14:15 -0500

I wonder how it would feel if someone told you that you weren't allowed to eat certain food or go to certain places because your mom and dad did not have the right papers. Your friends can go wherever they like, but you can only play with them in certain places.

God, the Heavenly Weed Killer

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:10:07 -0500

How many of you have ever planted a garden? If you have, then you know that one of the biggest enemies of a good garden is weeds. Weeds will rob the soil of the nutrients that help your plants to grow and many times they will choke out good plants. What can you do? Well, you could take a hoe and chop down the weeds, but if you do that, you will probably chop down some of the good plants by accident.

Time for Bridge Building

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 11:06:48 -0500

28... Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory.

The World Is Worth Nothing When So Many Suffer So Much and God Is Destroying It

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 07:57:36 -0500

Reading an article on how one woman uses the Gospel to declare how God sees the world sent shivers through me. She has no perception of reality although she speaks of her demands for truth. Who is to blame for this except the religious missionaries who have been sent into every corner of the planet to convert people to its thinking.

What Is Sin When Men Who Commit It Are Able to Forgive It?

Fri, 21 Jul 2017 08:29:08 -0500

Religions which preach sin are fraudulently misleading their followers because there is no such thing in the eyes of God. It is something that has emerged as a result of the dreams of ancestral beings who brought about a scenario that they can rise up and become gods. While it is impossible for anyone to accomplish that the way they brought it about was to make everyone else believe it.

No Doubt About It

Business people are often overcome by stress. But they are not the only ones.

Hope in a Hopeless Time

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:30:12 -0500

There is always a crisis lying in wait for all of us. Life out there is not easy.

Back to God's Drawing Board

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 15:29:48 -0500

These past few days we've been confronted with our own responsibility in respect of our faith in God. Paul shows us a template of a true child of God and we have to see whether or not we fit into that template.

Forgiveness of Sins and the Increase in Crime

Wed, 19 Jul 2017 06:58:48 -0500

With a link to the Spirit it showed me many visions to explain the role of religion in bringing the world into crisis. In one of these a ribbon stretched from Rome to Sicily and then wound itself around the planet until everything was black. In another vision I saw that black as something that nothing could penetrate.

What I Really Think of Jezebel

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 14:56:24 -0500

This article tries to analyze the life and death of Queen Jezebel of Jezreel-the infamous wicked female character in the Bible. The author wishes to shed light to her already tarnished image by a feminist's viewpoint.

Where The Sun Is Still Chief God

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:04:39 -0500

The celestial body that shines all day and is responsible for the essential things of life was considered a god by the ancients. But it maintains that role in religions to this day. One may ask how that can be possible but ignorance and a lack of understanding has enabled religions to get away with such fraud for centuries.

The Crushing of the Assyrian on God's Mountain

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:03:16 -0500

The identity of this guy is well protected not only by those who cover over his work but by the Spirit of the Universe, the real God. He was given the power over all tongues and nations to do his worst, and that has been accomplished. The problem is that men who added to prophecies in the bible have helped to cover over the crimes of his organisation and, thereby, increased them.

How 666 Assumed the Role of God

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:02:43 -0500

One might consider that this would be impossible. How can a man become God? The answer is not only surprising but says a lot about the gullibility of people who are pushed psychologically to their limit.

How 666 Passed on His Power Through Popes

Tue, 18 Jul 2017 07:02:13 -0500

Roman Emperors considered appointed by God were gods in their own right. Constantine, who bears the number 666 on his name, claimed he was the son of Apollo. This image, invented by the Greeks, was a personified version of the sun.
