Then Christine’s front  window exploded and smoke started pouring out of the house. He jumped up and ran for the phone.

When I got to Christine’s house at around 1 pm., the front two windows were black gaping holes. A heap of melted and blackened furniture and other debris was stacked up in the front yard. «Read the rest of this article»

Cable TV: Too Much For Too Little?


Cable wireHow many cable channels do I subscribe to? Or more importantly, how many do I really watch?

The answer is discouraging. About a hundred channels pour into my house, including a number of music channels on a family tier.  I watch about a dozen of them.  My grandchildren listen to few more. Is it worth the cost? Probably not. As a matter of fact, definitely not. But cable comes in “packages.” All or nothing. «Read the rest of this article»

The Rise of Dominionism, Religion and Politics Part II


Christian HypocritesReligion should be an important factor in your daily life. There should be a deep and personal relationship between you and your God. While religion can be shared, it can never be forced.

But that is exactly what many activist Christians involved in politics wish to do, convert the heathens via the legal system. They had these same type of people back in Jesus’s time. They were called Pharisees.

Activist Christians are more dangerous than the worst activist judge. It is the job of a judge to interpret the law. A Christian’s sole job is to live a good life.

Some “Christians” have gotten confused about this, in their quest for power over their fellow man. It’s past time for true Christians to set them straight. Call them out, challenge their hypocrisy where ever you see it, in the Pulpit,  Papacy, or on the street. «Read the rest of this article»
