Did Jesus only pay the price for Adam’s sin?

The title here reflects one idea behind the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, and it seemed a decent topic to bring up as we approach Passover. In particular, while some may quibble with the wording, it is a summary of how Jehovah’s Witnesses approach the issue of how Jesus’ death atones for sin: The idea that … Continue reading

A Few Thoughts on the Council of Elders Meeting, Spring 2014

It’s Saturday night, and life has finally calmed down a little, if only for a moment! The Sabbath today in Charlotte was wonderful. We had an excellent sermon by Mr. Rob Tyler and a convicting sermon by Mr. Gerald Weston. And after catching up with many folks afterwards, my Beautiful Wife and I had the … Continue reading

Techniques of Non-Prophets: Wax Fruit

It has been a while since I have contributed to this series, and now that I have rediscovered my blog I thought it would be nice to submit another entry. Here are links to the first few: Techniques of Non-Prophets: Arbitrage through Tautology Techniques of Non-Prophets: The Speculation/Prophecy Two-Step Techniques of Non-Prophets: Got Me a Title! Today, we … Continue reading

What’s this “bowl” thing I keep hearing about? (Plus: Thanks, non-heathens!)

Wow–what a weekend! Counselings and baptisms and services and Bible studies and a new workshop yesterday. And then, this morning, I keep hearing about this “bowl” thing. What’s up with that? OK, seriously, I know what it is: the Super Bowl. So, who won, anyway? The Texas Rangers? The Vancouver Canucks? The Ealing Trailfinders? OK, … Continue reading

Christians and Heathen Prophecy

Heard someone’s perspective on this recently, and it seemed a good blog topic. Frankly, it’s been on my mind for a long time, so this is likely going to be a long one. You might want to get some coffee–I can’t guarantee it will be exciting enough to keep you awake… Is it OK for … Continue reading

Zombie ministers: How some abuse the dead

There is a tendency out there amongst some that I find very frustrating, but I’m learning to be more balanced about it. It’s the tendency of those who wish to go their own way in the COGiverse to abuse the dead in their own cause. Energetic, unstoppable zombies have become all the rage in movies … Continue reading

Flashback: Thank you, Mr. Armstrong

Today marks the 28th anniversary of the death of Herbert W. Armstrong. I hope that we’re all thankful for the work he did–really, the work that God did through him–and for the impact it had and continues to have as the ministry he invigorated continues through those he personally trained to carry on God’s Work. … Continue reading

Finding God in Geometry Class

This post deserves to be much longer and deeper than it will be, but I’m still going to post it while I have this brief opportunity. Plato once said, “Geometry aims at the eternal.” For me, this statement was very true as a 9th grade geometry student in high school, except that it is missing … Continue reading

Because He was born, I do not keep Christmas

I forgot today was Christmas. Last night my family and I arrived home after a long drive, and early this morning I had to drive my son to work. As we were driving through town it was eerie and calm. The “school zone” light was blinking, but there were no children and no cars on … Continue reading

I am thankful

A happy Thanksgiving Day to all who happen to find their way here over this American holiday. It is nice to have a national holiday every once in a while that we can actually celebrate–all the more when it is one for which the motivating spirit is so godly (even if its more modern spirit … Continue reading
