RACIAL SEGREGATION: by Melek DiaBendia, December 30, 2006
The doctrine of the Nicolaitanes in Revelation, and the sin of Balaam. Racial purity was perhaps the highest priority for the Old Testament children of God. What's more, Jesus did NOT change that. In these end times when Satan is making his final desperate attempt to destroy God's pure race of Israel, modern society has made racial equality the very central focus for the masses, including the non-thinking Christian religionists. The sheep are blindly following the wolf who wishes to destroy them.
PROCESSION OF LIFE, by Robert D. Steffens, September 2006. Bob Steffens (Roger Hathaway's brother) has a wonderful ability to see Biblical passages as pieces which fit into the Big Picture which is a long-term historical program that is directed by God, through His Twelve Tribes of Israel. The sequence in which God ordered the Tribes is directly meaningful to the historical process. You cannot understand how and why civilization has followed its peculiar course until you know that God ordered it to be that way.
THE GREAT COMMISSION, by Melek DiaBendia, August 2006
Here is a wonderful essay about the Great Commission and the people for whom it was intended. If you are willing to hear what the Bible is actually saying, rather than what the religion of evangelism says, then you will find that the disciples knew exactly to whom they were being sent, and it was not to anyone other than God's people of Israel.
JOB, INSIGHTS INTO A WONDERFUL SCRIPTURE, by Robert D. Steffens, February 2005
Here is an insight into the book of Job which gives it a spiritual depth as great as that of any other scripture. The Four Minds of God are expressed in this book, with Job representing God's spiritual Man. Victor Hugo, the great author of Les Miserables and Hunchback of Notre Dame, said "The Book of Job is perhaps the Greatest Masterpiece of the Human Mind."
GOD'S FOUR MINDS, by Robert D. Steffens, February, 2005
The book of Revelations indicates that God extends Himself into our reality through four "minds" or perhaps "natures," these being the Physical, Emotional, Rational, and Spiritual. In this article, Bob Steffens develops the concept of God's expression of Himself by making it pertinent to the various creatures on our planet. His insights will enhance your concept of just how our Almighty Supreme God exercises Himself by living and moving in us all.
THREE SINS by Robert D. Steffens, January, 2005
Bob is a layman who has been blessed with spiritual insights that are often "breakthroughs" from the traditional mindset of Christian theology. Academic theology has not progressed beyond that of the 16th Century Reformers who at thtat time felt free to follow the Holy Spirit's promptings. Since that time, sectarian organizations have required that members lock themselves into a carefully worded statement of beliefs, where they must sit content and reject any promptings that might create a spark inside their dark cloister. So, it is through men who lack such programming that the Holy Spirit can prompt more breakthrough insights. Bob is a man, somewhat like David, who maintains his focus on God in spite of human weaknesses and worldly activities. In this article about sin, he dares to attempt a clarification of the subject. It is delightfully refreshing, daringly bold, and even thrilling to ponder a question which has stymied the "published" ones of theology. This article is one of those rare delights.
SIMPLICITY by Charles Wagner, 1901
In the early years of the industrial revolution, which has now grown until it has not just overwhelmed our lives but has become the very essence of them, Charles Wagner recognized the value of turning inward to a simplicity that we can only envy today. While I like to think I am striving for a simple life here in the Appalachian mountains with a cow and some chickens, I feel that the most pleasant years of my life were those in Alaska in a one room log cabin which had no running water or indoor bathroom. Lisa and I did have electric lights and I spent a lot of time writing at my computer. Our daily lives were not filled with chores, and only weekly did I have to haul water from a nearby stream; in the winter I dipped it through a hole in the ice. We welcomed each morning as an empty day which we could use or not use, as we wished. I wonder if people accustomed to modern society can even imagine or fantasize what that simple life would feel like, or even if they might be able to enjoy it. Yet, it is to simplicity of life and thoughts that God beckons us, for it is there that we can hear the whisperings of the Holy Spirit.
JEWISH HOLOCAUST (includes excerpt from article by Edgar J. Steele, January 2005)
Sixty years after the end of World War II, we are watching the news media showcase the German prison camp, Auschwitz, as a Death Camp with horror stories of gas chambers and crematoriums. The media avoids any mention that there are many people who deny such a holocaust ever happened, and who want desperately to present the evidence of the truth. Other than a small amount of circumstantial evidence which they have distorted, the Jews have nothing to support their claim of such a holocaust. But, there is abundant evidence, along with common sense, to disprove their claims. It is this evidence which some European countries have outlawed; they send people to prison for attempting to present it. It is this evidence which Ernst Zundel tried to present, and for which he is now in jail in Canada, awaiting extradition to Germany where his truths will get him imprisoned for the rest of his life. By the way, Ernst Zundel is a U.S. citizen, from Tennessee, where he was arrested and then handed over to Canada to be held indefinitely. Consider this one point, friends, if there is evidence to really show such a holocaust happened, then why won't authorities permit a grand trial of it so they can make their case once and for all? Instead, from the time the idea of Jewish holocaust first appeared, they have only worked to suppress evidence that so many would like to present. It is a contest of darkness versus light, isn't it?
LISA'S POEMS Here are a couple poems written by my wife, Lisa, about 1992. Though she does not write a lot of poetry, these two are very special to me. PENELOPE'S LAMENT lights up another viewpoint of Homer's Odyssey, one of her favorite pieces of literature. One recent winter she read all four translations of it. KNIGHT DREAM reveals her identification with and love of the Arthurian romances, our Celtic heritage. I'm putting this page on the web site because I think her poems are too wonderful to languish unread.
