The Cosmic Chess Match, Which May Never End, Except in Stalemate

. I am a Christian, I worship God, I follow Christ, and I support the goal of destroying false religion, stopping evil oppression and liberating slaves, such as God did in Egypt. But if God was forced to engage in such a complex game of conflict, like a game of chess, in all Biblical times and up to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 8

In Part 7, I presented God's rebuke of Job, a rhetorical diversionary tactic to put the utmost pressure on an innocent Job, who God knew full well was innocent, to deliver the final ordeal in Job's test of horrors. Job passed that test, for all of humanity, proving humanity's great worth as a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 7

In Part Six, I presented God’s faith in Job, Job’s faith in God, and their mutual faith in something apart from God, an ideal moral philosophy, that holds the true allegiance of both God and man. If this is true, wouldn’t it behoove us to try to discern and describe what that philosophy is? PART... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 6

In Part 5, I presented the lies of the dark spirit to Eliphaz, Job's friend, and the long campaign of Job's three friends to convince Job that he was guilty of horrific sins against God, to be so severely punished. Their campaign lasted from Chapter 4 to Chapter 31, then in Chapter 32 a fourth man,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 5

In Part Four, I presented the Grand Deception that Satan is conducting in his assault on Job, and the Spectacular Risk that God is taking to engage in this incredible episode. Job is about to be taken to the next level of suffering, or should we say torture..... Part Five Satan Raises The Bet… God... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 4

The Book of Job, Read With New Eyes The Book of Job is widely dismissed, even by ministers and priests, as a parable or a myth. It is regarded like a fairy tale with a moral message. I think it tells us of a real clash between God and Satan, perhaps not word for word, but real. And I think Job was a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 3

The Book of Exodus, Read With New Eyes Another interesting counterpoint, earlier in Hebrew history, would be God’s powerful actions to forcefully free the Hebrews from Egyptian slavery, in the Book of Exodus. God brought about plagues, he killed the Egyptians’ first-born sons, he parted the sea, and... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 2

.......... If you read the last post, you would recall that I discussed the extreme atrocities of both the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the current attacks of ISIS upon the rest of the world. These are similar displays of extreme aggressive evil. God did nothing to stop either one of them.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Cosmic Lessons of Pearl Harbor, and Its Lessons For Today

TODAY IS PEARL HARBOR DAY, PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT, BUT UNRECOGNIZED DAY ON OUR CALENDAR IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a graphic post. If you are queasy or panicky at the sight of blood, or philosophically opposed to violence of any kind, then DO NOT scroll down below the photo of Admiral Nimitz. You... Sign in to see full entry.

The Age-Old Question of Violence... When, Where, Why?

All good people abhor violence. God abhors violence. Jesus abhorred violence. Almost every intellectual writer and religious prophet in history abhorred violence, with a few notable exceptions (see my other blog). But good people, and God, seem to be forced to engage in violence, throughout human... Sign in to see full entry.
