Why the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

Have you ever asked yourself why God put the tree with the fruit that caused man’s downfall within the garden in the first place? There are all kinds of answers. You could say that its presence made man authentic, so long as he didn’t partake of it. I suppose that’s true, but what was man … Continue reading

Your Sins are Forgiven

When I was going to the park today I chanced by the local video store. Yes, we still have one of those in my neighborhood. The front of the place is covered in movie adverts and other kinds of posters for upcoming concerts and events. There was also a marriage notice, for the gay owners … Continue reading

Conspiracy Everywhere

I like to read the comments posted after articles. Often, this tells me as much about the subject as anything the author might have said. This is especially so when articles are the equivalent of column fill. Sadly, this is increasingly the state of modern journalism in the face of the declining standards that poorer … Continue reading

The Science Behind the Resurrection

Just as Noah set loose a raven first, followed by a dove, so too did God use multiple manifestations in order to raise His son. The raven was the lasting one, who was able to fly for such a long time. The doves each would go out for the time they were strong enough to … Continue reading

Which Way to the Kingdom?

So there is this county clerk in Kentucky who won’t issue marriage licenses to gay couples. It is the law of the land, but she says that she won’t do it because it is against her religion. I say, where is your particular kingdom, woman? Is it of this earth, of the United States, of … Continue reading

Whence Comes Law

Yesterday, June 21st, 2015, I went to my local park. I often go to the park, but this day was different. Yesterday was the annual gay pride parade, which starts at my local park and goes to other places in my city. It starts at my park because the park has an inner ring road … Continue reading

What Does it Mean for Jesus to Call Himself the ‘Son of Man’?

I was just walking back in the bitter cold, minus one Fahrenheit, from dropping off last night’s movies into the Redbox when it hit me. Under the natural state of things people living outside in these conditions don’t fair very well. It’s all very good and well for that squirrel that lives out back of … Continue reading

What is Good?

When looking through the channels Sunday morning, I get over the air reception, I decided to see what some of the more obscure looking ones were. There was a lot of church stuff on. One of the obscure channels had a program where a man said something akin to, “You see this pattern over and … Continue reading

What is Religion?

He wants your soul.

As long as I’ve been around people have been arguing over the definition of religion. Some say it has to do with one’s relationship with God. Some say it has to do with one’s own relationship to one’s self. Some say it has to do with one’s relationship to the cosmos, which taken this way … Continue reading

The Hero’s Journey

Last night I was watching a video presentation by David Wilcock, a noted new age thinker and lecturer, on Youtube. In his presentation he mentioned the hero’s journey as an archetype which dominates not only man as he exists on earth, but man as he exists everywhere in the universe. Obviously, he thinks that we … Continue reading
