  1. Meditations on a Pen

    1

    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.

    2

    Poet, take this pen within Your great hand.
    Allow it to write words that You command.
    Take it, lovingly, in Your holy grasp.
    Uphold it to learn, and to understand.

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

  2. The Abyss

    (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;
    Abode of dark angels; the old dragon's lair.
    Miserable creatures; banished and chained
    As spoils of rebellion - a prison they gained.

    They've waited

    To be born "again" is to be a Christian.

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

    22 Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart,
    23 for you have been born again not of seed which

  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.
