The painintg above is from one of my favorite New Testament stories. X and X and walking along the road to Emmaus. A guy comes up to thme walking and asks why they are so downcast. “Are you they only on in Jerusalen who doe sknow what happened?” they ask. Adn thsi stranger walks them through the Hebresw test, just like thye make they was along the trail, and explains how the Christ had to suffer and die. He open their eyes to reveal that he, in fact, is Jesus, the one crucified, now living and breathing again. It’s my favorite line in the New Testament, “Did our hearts burn inside us when He spoke ?”
sI have learned many times over that one cannot kick against the goad. God keeps calling, keeps prodding like the bothersone widow who gets her way becasue the judges becomes so eweary.
I consider myself an agnostic Christian. Some readers will side with my wife who consideres the term itself the epitome of stupidity. Read more about that here.
Under this heading you find Psalms, General Christian, and Teachings.
Psalms are just that: praise, lamentations, prayers, and thinkings about G and the world. Generally in some poettic form. They are generally unpolished, back of the envelope type of entreaties, much as I imagine David’s writing in the Hebrew texts.
Teaching is where I sketch out ideas on a white board, and explain a point passage. I attepmt to funnel down to what the writer said ans what the hearers heard. Sometimes is obvious, sometim,es surprising to modern ears.
General Christian is everythign else. Opinions, less formal teachings, and thoughts.
YOu might be here looking for my SUnday LEssons. For whatever weird rason, I dont keep them. When I post them, I do so on SUndays at 1:35 Eastern time.
It will anger and frustrate some and some will nod in agreement but I am happy with protestors theology of all forms, and Orthodox and Ctholic teching, too. I agree with many things pointed out by atheiest. I heartliy agree with Augustine that all truth is G’s truth.
Selah and enjoy.
