20/22/2019 My goal

I don't want to live forever.  I just want to live until tomorrow and be healthy. Think about that. I also want to thank MY GOD for all that I have lived so far and all of the folks that have shared it with me.

What if heaven were sentimental? 8/30/2019

I have spent a lot of time thinking about many things. I ponder the universe and all the way down to minute things in everyday life. I have studied how several religions work as well as non religions. I love esoteric things and things so common as to bore others. I have only 2 real …

7/16/2019 Why I don’t belong to a church?

I consider myself to be a Christian but cannot join a church. If you go to YouTube and look up "Broken Chains Church" and Pastor Brian Williams. you will see the one that I currently watch the most.   I have trouble with how most folks worship. This is due to my own relationship with …

To start with any church that calls itself Biblically true and following the Bible …

6/27/2019 Razors vs. saws and lap tops vs lap tops.

Some of these thoughts that I post before I forget occur to me while in the shower. Try to get that horrible image out of your mind.   When I was young I heard of "old saws." I sometimes heard of razors. The meaning of 'razor" was a bit of wisdom with a lot more …

May 21, 2019 My odd and undereducated thoughts on various religions

My history first. I was christened Catholic. My father was Greek Orthodox. He went to church once a year, at the new year, to pray for the health of his family. I have honored him as one of the best Christians that I have ever known. My mother never went to church. My other siblings …

Are You A Lost Sheep? — Whosoever Will, May Come This seems to relate to what I just posted so here it is

For many years I had found the parables of Jesus confusing. It doesn’t sound like he was talking about Christians. The language was more Jewish, rather than Church (body of Christ).
