Gravitational Waves   Leave a comment

The minute detection (much less than a single atom) of so-called gravitational waves is, frankly, a simple distraction from the reality of present world conditions. We are nearing a turning point in the history of mankind predicted by the Bible. To know the future it is necessary to study holy scriptures. Please do that while it is still possible at ‘JW.org’

Who Is Genuinely Qualified to Govern?   Leave a comment

Heard a good talk today on this subject.  It compared resume’s of Rulers.

First, the bad news; human governments and rulers have demonstrated impotence in solving global issues, including climate change, economic equality, health and welfare in general.

In fact there is little doubt the world’s population in general is more and more discontent with appointed or elected rulers as can be seen on your nightly news cast.  Try as they may, they simply do not have the answers for world problems.

The good news is this; there was a man on earth in the first century BC who demonstrated he ‘did’ have the resume’ to resolve and accomplish the best aspirations of mankind, namely, to bring peace, security, and economic equality to all who followed him.  Not only that, but he also demonstrated his willingness and capability to bring an end to human imperfection and death!

What a great resume’ he has shown us by his stellar example of humility and Godly power!  Indeed there is no competitor that could possibly rival this heaven-sent person, Christ Jesus.

Extreme Weather Events Increasing   Leave a comment

Ok so I’m no so-called environmental scientist, just a guy who doesn’t have his head in the ground.  Actually the majority of environmental scientists are evidently in agreement that extreme weather events are in fact increasing, so I have no quarrel with them whatsoever.

So why are governments and officials of all stripes, with very few exceptions,  ignoring this issue?!  Surely the threat to human lives should be a priority for all leaders today.  But no, what we see is a consistent, unrelenting, focus on financial matters the world over!  How very bizarre is that??

Talk about ‘Nero fiddling while Rome burns’ syndrome, but indeed that is the attitude that prevails throughout the history of mankind.  Leaders the world over are ‘in denial’, primarily pushing financial agenda’s, be they good or bad.

The pro’s and con’s of so-called global warming isn’t really the issue. The issue is what can be done to mitigate and protect mankind from extreme weather conditions that are steadily increasing and impacting virtually every nation on earth.  Surely there is enough evidence of this to make it a real priority?

Isn’t it time for good people everywhere to wake up and take seriously environmental disasters that are increasingly occurring planet-wide?

No More Industrial Revolutions…??   Leave a comment

This is a link to a NY Times article printed Oct. 15th 2012.

It is a thought-provoking economist’s view that is definitely worth a read.

GLOBAL ECONOMY OR GLOBAL ETHICS – WHICH DO YOU CHOOSE?   Leave a comment

The word is out, yes, the GNP (Gross National Product) is not just the key to the success of a country’s National Sovereignty but, wait for it… Life Itself!

How ridiculous is that statement?  Do you really think, as the Nations insist, that GNP is fundamental to  life and happiness?  This is the false doctrine Nations have promoted and glorified since time immemorial.

The ancient Nation of Israel was an example.  They turned to just such a form of idolatry thousands of years ago and it resulted in their being rejected by God.  Idolatry?  Yes!

They gradually adopted and endorsed the goals and purposes of their materialistic neighbors, even worshipping ‘baal’ gods in hopes of improved crops and production, ultimately being willing to sacrifice their children for imagined benefits! Did this include ‘military action’?  Of course it did!!

in other words they became totally  focused and driven by material welfare, while rejecting Godly principles.

It is a form of idolatry to put the material well-being and National interest ‘ahead’ of ethics and principled  behavior? Absolutely!  So when the primary focus of the Nations is the GNP, that is a form of idolatry, pure and simple.  What are the consequences of this focus?

We only need to see the state the world today t0 forecast the future.  To say it is ‘adrift’ is to put it mildly.  The primary focus of the Nations is, as mentioned, material productivity and goals.  The very concept of morality and Godly principles is a faded concept, if at all, much less implemented.

Yet when we examine the history of the Nation of Israel, again as a prime example, we see extended periods when they actually did endorse and pursue those higher God-given goals, resulting in incomparable benefits!

The ‘missing link’ in man today is his spiritual development, not a mythical jump from the lower animal kingdom via a theory of evolution.

Those who earnestly seek the ‘narrow path’ (Matthew 7:14) of life according to God-given principles can actually make ‘real’ progress now.
