  1. True Disciples Are Perfectly United; Churchgoers Are Hopelessly Divided

    Jesus prayed to the Father concerning His true followers, “I have given them the glory You gave Me, so that they may be one as We are one—I in them and You in Me—that they may be perfectly united, so that the world may know that You sent Me and have loved them just as You have loved Me” John 17:22-23. Why does it seem that there are so many divisions among those who claim to be in Christ? The answer to this question can be summed up as follows: First, there are many who falsely believe they...
  2. My Experience With The Forum Here.

    At one time I had a very high opinion of Christianity and christians in general. But after spending some time here I have to say that while my opinion of Christianity remains somewhat unchanged my opinions of christians has sunk to a level it’s unlikely to recover from. In fact, I regard christians only with the darkest cynicism. Never before have I encountered people who are so rude, arrogant and insulting. If anyone ever wonders why revival tarries or doesn’t happen then one doesn’t have...
  3. Holy Curiosity

    "But the children struggled together within her; and she said, “If all is well, why am I like this?” So she went to inquire of the Lord ." (Genesis 25:22 NKJV) Rebecca became pregnant after waiting on God for many years. The babies struggled in her womb and she decided to find out from God what was the issue. We have lost this act of holy curiosity today! We tend to have answers to all the questions. If we will grow and become fit to manage our inheritance in Christ Jesus, we must begin...
  4. Second Thoughts About My Blog Entries.

    I do not want to abandon my suggestion that my entries will be about my life experiences. But especially concerning my teaching career, I have realised that they could become very personal and I might therefore be identified by long-ago colleagues, if they are still alive. Late in 2018 I was in hospital for several weeks and lay in bed thinking what to do with my time. I wrote seven essays, entitling them "Letters from Hospital" and I will blog them all if a few readers show interest. I was...
  5. For Many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen

    “Once again, Jesus spoke to them in parables: “The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to call those he had invited to the banquet, but they refused to come. Again, he sent other servants and said, ‘Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner. My oxen and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.’ But they paid no attention and went away, one to his field, another...
  6. The Virus Is A Big Threat

    The virus is a big threat The reason I believe that the COVID-19 virus is not overblown is that in a matter of a few months we have had over 150,000 deaths. Also, perhaps we are at the beginning of second-wave, or the end of the first, I am not sure. Unless people stop fighting over the 'mask' issue I believe we will lose many more people. In every country where they opened back up, there was a surge, a big one, the United States is a case in point. I do not believe that wearing a mask or...
  7. The Willing Saviour

    "And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed." (Matthew 8:2‭-‬3 NKJV) The challenge is not the degree of your sin or 'leprosy', the issue is whether you are humble enough to approach Jesus for forgiveness and cleansing. He has never rejected anyone, He will not reject you. Consider the leper's statement “Lord, if...
  8. A Recent Conversation With Sda

    Continuing my decision to write entries for my blog, entitled Christian Anarchism, on my own experiences in my life as, first an anarchist, then a Christian, and now a Christian anarchist, I must immediately point out that my entries will not be based chronologically on experiences throughout my life. I will indicate in each entry when the experience occurred during my life, and I will leave it to readers to decide whether or not my actions were anarchical, Christian, Christian anarchical,...
  9. Luke 14 -- Salt Therefore Is Good

    The Lord said His yoke was easy and His burden was light, is this really easy? Let’s compare. In the world they are struggling to get to the top of the heap. There are many people who give it everything they have and yet the world still finds issues. These debates about who the greatest of all time is for the various sports is one example. Why isn’t it good enough that they gave it everything they had? Second, what about those who get injured. The Lord asks us to give it everything we have,...
  10. Imitating Leaders

    Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Carefully consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:7-8 ~ EHV - bold is mine) There are many revealing and truth-stamped Scriptures for us to learn from and follow. Verses which follow each other consecutively are particularly cementing in their emphases. Concerning the Scripture passage above, the bolded part is by far and away the...
  11. The Golden Skepter Of Mercy

    "When he saw Queen Esther standing there in the inner court, he welcomed her and held out the gold scepter to her. So Esther approached and touched the end of the scepter." (Esther 5:2 NLT) Queen Esther had just disobeyed the law of Medes and Persia. The penalty for such an offence was death. Something more important than life was at stake, the purpose of God. Esther risked her all to fulfill God's purpose. Preservation of the Jews was in God's agenda. What risk are we taking for God today?...
  12. The Cliché (though It Need Not Be)

    The cliché (Though it need not be) There are many clichés that are used in our culture today. We hear them every day ad nauseum. Yet they can be true for all that; in fact they can get to the heart of the matter they speak of, if pondered and their over-familiarity defeated. So that the wise center can be understood and inner balance and healing accomplished. For me, the most difficult obstacle I face on my journey towards inner wholeness is the relationship I have with myself, one that...
  13. Deliverance From The World System

    "For my part, I am going to boast about nothing but the Cross of our Master, Jesus Christ. Because of that Cross, I have been crucified in relation to the world, set free from the stifling atmosphere of pleasing others and fitting into the little patterns that they dictate." (Galatians 6:14‭ MSG) The tendency to always want to please others is very frustrating. Why? Human beings can never be satisfied with anything you do. Humanity is like little children, they can never be satisfied with...
  14. More Than An Idea, More Than A Sentiment

    When I read this passage in the New Testament, I was filled once again with hope: In Galatians 5:25 it says, “We have chosen a life, the life of the spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out its implications in every details of our lives.” So it should be with my renewed life in the spirit. I must make sure I do not just hold my Danish Christian identity as an idea in my head or a sentiment in my heart, but work...
  15. Meeting A Dying Beetle

    Meeting a dying Beetle This morning I was watering the plants here in the Monastery Retreat House. Most of the plants I have I simply put in water and just watch them grow. Each plant is a work of art. As I was going out onto the Retreat House back porch, that overlooks our garden, I spied a beetle struggling. It was a beautiful specimen, with a long sleek body and long antennae. It was dying. I am always surprised to see an insect actually dying since I am sure the odds of living that long...
