The only one getting into heaven is me

Sorry about your luck everyone else, you had your chance, all you had to do was listen to me but you blew it. God will never forgive you for not listening, a major blunder on your part when the penalty is considered. That of course would be spending all eternity standing in a molten lake of fire. If...

Whatever happened to freedom of speech?

The question posed in the title of this post seems to have become a catch phrase in the past few years, a default position or an involuntary response by those who have run into some form of opposition to opinions they have chosen to state publicly. We see this question quite often offered up as a... Sign in to see full entry.

A hard winter for the evangelists - final chapter

Once we had finished eating the guests lingered at the table as the dishes were cleared. We were spared more of Andy's presence as he took some of the young teens into the rec room to set up a new video game he had brought back from the US for them. It was one of the "Left Behind" series we were to... Sign in to see full entry.

A hard winter for the evangelists - 2nd last chapter

We arrived at Aunt Jenny's house just before lunch on the Saturday. It was the first time I had met her face to face, though I do remember seeing her at the funeral service. She was a widow living alone in what would best be described as a mansion on the other side of the city. Her link to the... Sign in to see full entry.

A hard winter for the evangelists - Part 3

The day after the wake was the funeral, it was held in the church that had recently become the home base for the evangelists. 10 years ago they started out by breaking away from their original church because it had ordained a gay minister and held their services in a school gym. With the general... Sign in to see full entry.

A hard winter for the evangelists continued

Upon arriving home from the airport, my mother in law immediately remarked that my house did not seem to be under construction and wanted an explanation as to why I did not offer to have her family members stay with us. I wanted to say: "Don't you know that if you start feeding them you can never... Sign in to see full entry.

A hard winter for the evangelists.

A long time had past since the in-law evangelists had spoken to me. I was beginning to count the time in years, a reality I was growing increasingly grateful for.... but as anyone who has ever accepted a seniors discount will tell you, when families begin growing older, the grim reaper forces them...

How to behave amongst the faithful

If there is one thing that I can claim some expertise at, it is how to conduct one's self when dragged to a social function of any type where the majority of people attending are dyed in the wool, hallelujah, Jesus is the answer types. I have had to deal with this scenario for most of my adult life... Sign in to see full entry.

Little Furry Blogger Update

I know, I need a life, I admit it freely. It is safe to say that I was one of "those kids", if handed anything with moving parts or an electronic element of some type, it wasn't long before it was in pieces for a closer examination of how it worked. I couldn't help myself when I first came to... Sign in to see full entry.

The 3 D's of creation.

Which are discard, discredit and deny. Charles Darwin introduced the theory of evolution through natural selection nearly 150 years ago, during a time when religious beliefs controlled nearly every facet of daily existence. Academics, theologians and even the scientific minds of the day offered a... Sign in to see full entry.
