Apocalypolis

City of Destruction. We think of Apocalypse as of the end of the world. So my word would mean end of the world city or city of destruction. But what apocalypse means originally apart from our cultural influences is a revealing from the other side. It is revelation from the heavens into our dimension. We…

On Bending Views

A bent is a not simply a viewpoint, but it is also a lens that colors the viewpoint. I remember in Seminary the professors wanted us to do extensive research because they were not interested so much in our voice but in whether we understood the information. This in a backward way did also communicate that we…

Why isn’t God more fancy?

This is a follow-up to last week about wonder. Why is it that we are able to look at the wonder of our galaxy and conclude that the “Truth is out there”but we are equally as unwilling to carry that notion over to perhaps the answer being God? To me this seems to follow. If…

Psalm 19 says that creation speaks and that should teach us something. 1 The heavens declare the glory of God,     and the sky above proclaims his handiwork. 2 Day to day pours out speech,     and night to night reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words,     whose voice is not heard. 4 Their voice goes out through all…

But it is going around so I will still add my two cents. Of recent the question “Don’t we all just worship the same God? The Jews,…

Apocalypse Please?

No this not about Muse’s great song but about a never ceasing stab at predicting the apocalypse. I had to comment on this trend of some “christian” groups who keep trying to predict the end of the world. I remember seeing the book 88 Reasons The World Will End In 1988, in 1991. Even I…

All those versions

So I met a guy the other day while working.  After he heard  I went to bible college got a degree in theology and had a master’s from seminary he informed me that while he wasn’t spiritual he did take some philosophy from different religions such as Buddhism and from Christianity and even some from…
