• How to Torture the Soul

    19 March, 2019

    I wrote to the church, but Diotrophes, who loves to be first, will have nothing to do with us. (3 John 9) What a horrible epitaph Diotrophes carries! For two thousand years he is recorded as a man who loved to be first. Self-promotion is never an original thought; it began with satan in heaven.…...[read more]

    Six centuries ago Martin Luther examined his heart. His report ended with ~ I more fear what is within me than what comes from without . Men are often blind to the issues of their being.

    An empty large jar sat disused, neglected for an extended time on a kitchen shelf. It was well made and strong. The glass thicker than most.

  • That Evil Man-Flu!

    Weighed down under the wicked suffering of the world's 'second-best/worst' man-flu - I thought! Honestly , it was all I could do. As almost a man-flu survivor (N.B. still recovering, sympathy still appreciated) I can tap away for a modicum of productivity. While supping countless cups…...[read more]

    Voltaire (1694 - 1778) lived dangerously. A fine thinker and author, he challenged French authority, spent two sentences in jail and lived in exile. Voltaire (1725) bravely observed: It is a dangerous thing to be correct when those in authority are wrong. Would you fly in the face of human…...[read more]
