This small blog has just had its 100th comment, rescued from the spam, in which a woman suggested that perhaps this place could do with snappy headlines. Good for marketing. Good SEO. But it misses the point of the dated posts. They are the readings for the day. For the new people, they come from […]

We are not to conform to this world, or the agenda of this world. When you have a social welfare system and social housing that is priced and market rates — meaning that the average disabled person has to get food packages a few times a year — you have a problem. There are solutions. […]

I know too many pagans. They are very spiritual. They must have the correct attitudes, activities, and rituals. They must be woke. Though it damns them. Adam has describes such in a thousand carefully chosen words, which means he has seen such in the leafy suburbs of the antipodean conurbations. Some of her friends are […]

Many people seek the kingdom of God, but it is here in part. The Church should be his kingdom. but it is human, carnal, broken. But the faithful in the church truly are of the kingdom of God. It is not seen in external pomp and ritual. It is seen in the reformation of a […]

If we are judged by the standards that we apply to others, we will damn ourselves. That is the standard that will be used against us: in all its fullness. There is a reason that Christ said that we should not judge, for we will be judged. However, Christ is not just the righteous judge, […]

Beware of those who preach theological novelties. Who say that they have a new word, a new analysis, a new vision. Be very careful that they do not deny the resurrection of Christ. Many do — in fact most of the liberal arm of the mainstream churches do, as did modern Quakers, and many others. […]

We should not be shocked when things get worse. Things will get much worse. There will be a division, between those who are of God and those of perdition, and it will be clear cut. It will not be that there are faithful, in the last days, of other religious traditions: the best of such […]

I am not sure if the audience of Christ would have accepted him if he came with a letter of authority. Such were the ways of the time: Paul himself noted that he was trained by Gamaliel. What he was saying would have not been accepted regardless. The issue for this time is that no […]
