Been a long time since I wrote a blog

Please follow, share or like me:I’ve been spending more time working on my photography, and other writing projects to keep up with blogging. I’ve also been doing a lot of philosophical stuff on Facebook and Twitter instead of long-winded blogs. But I suppose I should perhaps try to get back to it???? Life has been busy. I finally left San Luis Obispo and moved back to Humboldt County in April 2016. I went to elementary school up here, and I Read More …

How BIG is God

Please follow, share or like me:Looking at God from the standpoint of The Bible’s claims taken to extents (or near)– If we believe in a God/Creator, a God that is Truly (note the capital T) All-Powerful, and Truly Created the universe (or multiverse), and if God is a Loving, Forgiving God, who so loved the World that He sent His Son to save the Jews and Gentiles alike, then would that not demand that God also have revealed Himself to Read More …

I know the Old Testament Read More …

I Pledge Allegiance

Please follow, share or like me:I pledge allegiance To the Flag Of the United States of America; And to the REPUBLIC For which, it stands; One nation, [under God], With LIBERTY, and JUSTICE for ALL.   I, like so many other in the 25+ age range, grew up saying this every day in school, and I think it is something that has been lost. I don’t mean it’s been lost as it hasn’t been used in schools for quite some Read More …

When those who are called to Love, hate

Please follow, share or like me:When those who are called to Love practice hate, religion dies. Wondering why non-Christians hate us so much, maybe because we have so often been judgmental, dispassionate, arrogant, greedy, and hurtful in our words. Sure, “blessed are those who are hated for my sake, for they first hated me.” But isn’t there also something to the affect of ‘Christ died for your sins: past, present, and future,’ and ‘you are seen pure and blameless,’ ‘but Read More …

Satan’s will to destroy God’s creation, and our role; and more

Please follow, share or like me:A few years ago I was having a conversation with some Christian friends of mine on a drive from San Luis Obispo, CA to Yosemite about guns and the environment. When I read about Jesus, or John The Baptist and the Essenes, I see a very peaceful ideology. Constantly Jesus says “love one another,” “help one another,” “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword,” etc. But the constant theme of his message Read More …

Teacher or Messaiah?

Please follow, share or like me:Buddha never claimed to be God. Moses never claimed to be Jehovah. Mohammed never claimed to be Allah. Yet Jesus Christ claimed to be the true and living God. Buddha simply said, “I am a teacher in search of the truth.” Jesus said, “I am the Truth.” Confucius said, “I never claimed to be holy.” Jesus said, “Who convicts me of sin?” Mohammed said, “Unless God throws his cloak of mercy over me, I have Read More …

Ohio School Shooting… :'(

Please follow, share or like me:A few days ago there was a school shooting in Ohio, with three dead. Surprised I didn’t see any memorial comments on Facebook. Perhaps people are like me and don’t watch the news very often. My heart goes out to the families and to the school in this tragedy. How soon do we forget our history? and why do we allow for this to happen again? I don’t care how responsible you think you are Read More …

How can we ignore death?

Please follow, share or like me:My prayers are with Syria. I can’t fathom people blowing up other people. I wish I could physically do something to help stop it. We can’t be wise people while this kind of violence and oppression takes place in our world. Doesn’t matter if it’s not happening to us, it’s happening to someone. Someone is being injured or killed, or having loved ones blown up right in front of them. These are people that have Read More …

Moms

Please follow, share or like me:Moms are the most God/Christ-like people you will ever meet. They love their children unconditionally (for the most part). They would lay down their lives for their children. They have a plan in mind for your life. They are sad when you misbehave. They can feed many mouths will little food. They know when your guilty, even without you admitting what you did. They serve those whom they are teaching.
