  1. Meditations on a Pen


    The paper was made for the pen to write
    Stories the Poet will read with delight,
    But the page accepts words without meaning;
    Not caring if the tale is wrong or right.


    Poet, take this pen within Your great hand.

    One letter at a time, is all it needs,
    For the pen

    (The following poem is based on Rev. 9)

    The Abyss

    There is a cursed place known as the Abyss -
    Many don't know that it even exists;
    It's a bottomless pit with smoke-filled air;

    One cannot be a Christian without being born "again"--and all must be born "again" to be involved with the Kingdom of God.

  4. The timing of Matt. 24:37:51: is it future or is it past?

    A frequent occurrence in any discussion of the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24 is a determination of the timing of the verses of Matt. 24:37:51. The seemingly standard question if this: are these scriptures referring to the future, or do they refer to the past?

    Well, it seems to me that Matt. 24:37:51 refers to a future time, even though it seems to be referring to the past. But Matt. 24:36 has to be referring to both the past and the future, because the people Jesus
  5. the Olmec

    What I know about the Olmec is, they were similar to the Aztec/Mexica and, like them, lived in what is now Mexico.

    Also, like the Aztec/Mexica, they weren't considered to be Hispanic/Latino, Spanish wasn't their language, and they practiced a religion completely distinct from any form of Catholicism.

    Beyond that, I'm not near as familiar with them as I am with the Aztec/Mexica.

    Well, that's about what I know about the Olmec.
