Empowering   Leave a comment

After first installing the newest Itunes program I deleted it and found that to be quite empowering, why; because the almost infinite number of choices was not only confusing but simply unfulfilling, to say the least.  Indeed I cranked up my old stereo box and foujnd local radio stations much more satisfying.

Air Canada flight 831 disaster   Leave a comment

On the news tonight It was the 50th anniversary of Air Canada flight 831 crash after taking off from Montreal in 1963… all 118 were killed.

I was booked to be on that flight, weeks ahead, it was a connecting flight from Halifax to B.C.  But while celebrating (honorable) release from the RCN (Royal Canadian Navy) in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, I made a last minute decision in the late afternoon to cancel, and re-book for another flight very early the next morning.

When I arrived at the Air Canada desk the next morning, the staff had just arrived and nervously whispered glancing at me while I waited for ground transportation.  I thought I must have revealed some evidence of late night partying.?  Completely unbeknown to me, apparently, they had just learned of the crash and realized I had been booked on it, many days in advance.

In my case this is just trivia now of course, but as Solomon so well said it “…time and unforeseen events overtake them all.” (Eccl. 9:11)

Our lives are so limited by circumstances we have no control over, I most truly sympathize with those who lost family members on flight 831, but thankfully we all still have hope to see loved ones in the future provided we exercise faith in the loving ransom of Christ Jesus… while that opportunity still exits.

“The Muddle in the Middle”   Leave a comment

I try really hard to suppress an outright laugh when reports like this are treated as scientific fact!

By their very own admission, ‘evil-lution’ is truly “a muddle”!  In other words it is not even close to being factual.

The BBC report on the news tonight (Dec. 3rd 2013) states ‘there is no way to connect million-year old man with modern man by comparing skull bones’ etc.  But now they expect to be able to do so by comparing the DNA from some cave bones. 

What utter and complete nonsense is this frustrated grasping at straws to validate a theory that for about 100 years has been absolutely ‘invalidated’ scientifically.

Of course the real reason for this desperate ongoing fruitless search is very obvious; there is no way that arrogant men of learning can come to grips with the plain truth, namely mankind is the product of the most intelligent, glorious, all-powerful, and generous Creator as clearly set out in His own inspired Word, the Bible.  Every science ‘fact’ supports this conclusion!

What’s more he has generously provided the way out of human chaos all the way back to human perfection.  But now we are reaching the very limit of his extreme patience with us… just as occurred in the days of Noah… please read Luke 17:26-30.

Explorer space craft exits Solar System   Leave a comment

Exciting news! The first man-made object exists the Solar System… but why so?

Credit is due for scientists and engineers who built and guided the Explorer on its historic journey to the stars.  

In fact they have provided ever greater evidence of our human insignificance in relation to the vastness of the Universe.

Indeed this event should help us to truly  ‘see ourselves’ in relation to the vast universe in which we are blessed to exist!

But the question is; are we willing to humble ourselves enough to appreciate this obvious fact!?

Another Example of the ‘Piltdown Man’ Hoax   Leave a comment

They find a mere fragment of bone and declare it a multi-thousand year tool of some unproven, unsupported, theoretical pre-human existence, and then blatantly exclaim it as proof of ‘evolution’..?  How truly bizarre is this illogical approach to the ‘scientific method’!

In case you never heard of the ‘Piltdown Man’ Hoax – please read about it here:    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piltdown_Man 

basically science is  ‘truth based on facts’, yet evolution is based on nothing more than, theory, speculation, and myth. 

There is no better example of this than the one carried by news media today….  findings of a few bones proves evolution..!?

Please do not suspend your disbelief when reading such misleading, fallacious news items.

‘A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words’   Leave a comment

The origin of this well-known saying is ambiguous.  However there is no doubt about its accuracy.  But is it really necessary for us to have a physical ‘picture’ to appreciate it?

Its my belief that the greatest use of this truism isn’t political cartoons or other media presentations as is often touted.  But it proves to be utterly true also when ‘word-pictures’ are presented for our human imagination!

For a prime example of this, arguably the greatest man to ever walk on the earth was a master at stimulating human imagination via the use of such ‘word pictures’.  And those pictures have left an indelible mark on mankind down to this day!

He consistently used ‘word pictures’ to stimulate human imagination and human emotions, to teach, explain, clarify, and magnify his point. 

Here is a classic example of his technique by way of hyperbole:

‘…It is easier for a camel to get through a needle’s eye than for a rich man to get into the kingdom of God.’   (Matthew 19:24)

Another classic example when he described hypocritical religious leaders:

“Likewise every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit; a good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, neither can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. Every tree not producing fine fruit gets cut down and thrown into the fire. Really, then, by their fruits YOU will recognize those [men]”  (Matthew 7:17-20)

These word-pictures are not limited to a one-off time period, as for example political cartoons, rather they are ‘timeless’ lessons that teach us things better than a thousand words could.  They present mental images to help us to understand and appreciate universal truths.

Though recorded 2000 years ago, if we meditate on them we will gain insight for our present day!
