I Don’t Always Feel Like a Writer

It’s true, I like to make up people and put them in weird situations, where I’m the only one who can save them. Or maybe I won’t save them. For the sake of the story, I might just let them suffer the consequences of my imagination. Why do I get a kick out of this? […]

Children Learning About God

More Lessons from a Little Boy Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 My last post, “A Little Conversation” was written a couple of years ago, when my grandson was four years old. I wrote that post when he […]

A Little Conversation

Straight talk from a small child. This world is going its own way. It started a long time ago. How long ago, I don’t know. Before Eve plucked the forbidden fruit, the self-propelling state of mind was already present. Lurking. Suggesting. The serpent went his own way long before the first garden dwellers. How long […]

Here We Go into the Dark and the Deep

Transhumanism may become the not-so-fictitious science reality of the future. As I put it on page one of Wake the Dead—the near future. Some of my readers are troubled by the deep, dark world of altered humanity. Others consider my rendering of a new world order the more frightening prospect. But the two society-shifting events—operative AI […]

How to Terminate Your Testimony

A few subjects not pertinent to the Gospel. I once wrote about the witness of a pretend Christian. A laughing matter—said Christian was a sitcom character. Her testimony of forgiveness and her dependence on God rallied my hope in network TV’s ability to present Christianity in a truthful manner. But the make-believe believer failed the […]

Considering Kindness

I read international headlines from prominent publications, and some from not-so-prominent fringe sources. I’ve done this long enough that the shock value is low. I’m no longer incensed when the Pope declares that America needs to be ruled by a world government as soon as possible “for their own good.”1 I’m not shaken by reports […]

The Tick Tock of the Doomsday Clock

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is not my go-to publication for calculating the world’s immediacy to “The End.” But I do find the discourse of physicists enticing, especially when the brainy guys and gals pontificate the fate of the modern world. The great thinkers should know when the planet is about to blow, so […]

The Quantifiable Gospel

Little games present themselves on a popular social media site—one I’ll not name. It’s the site where some people scroll at length when they ought to have their face in a book instead. No, I’m not bashing social media. It offers valuable information, contact with friends, opportunities for marketing, videos of adorable animals, and glorious […]

Happy New Year

☑ I Am Not a Robot No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is,  but the world as it will be.    Isaac Asimov Asimov made this statement in reference to the constant and inevitable changes reshaping our existence. Based on the realities of […]
