  1. I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EYES!

    Here I was reading an article in The Australian newspaper about who was attending the Australian Open Tennis finals and FOUR TIMES, yes that is right, four times a female was billed as someone’s WIFE. There were no boyfriends, girlfriends, partners, live-in lover, or any of the titles that have replaced wife. Just plain old wife. I had to think about that one. Does it mean that high-end tennis fans disdain modern-day descriptions of their wives? I hope so. Does it mean they are secure...
  2. KILLING BABIES IS OK

    Yes, that is right. In a recent poll, only one-quarter of evangelicals believe abortion should be illegal in all cases. It seems that the majority of Americans believe that life begins at or before the heartbeat but the majority of Evangelicals and Catholics identify as pro-choice. In other words, it is OK to kill babies in the womb. To face facts, this is horrendous, bearing in mind the prohibition on killing in scripture for the believer. NO believer should be pro-abortion for any reason...
  3. TV OR NOT TV, THAT IS THE QUESTION

    I am a cricket fan and because of the size of the country I live in, and limited mobility I cannot get to major matches. Soooooooooo I always watch on TV and that means all day in some cases. I know I am a cricket tragic as they call them. I can't help it as I played cricket when I was young, umpired cricket matches and coached cricket. Just that I picked a sport that takes a long time to play, although, now with 20/20 it only takes three hours of an evening. I am not a dedicated watcher in...
  4. AUSTRALIA'S BUSH FIRES

    I live in Australia. Have for nearly 40 years. Prior to that, I lived in England for 40 years. I left England in June (summer) with a temperature of 20C. I arrived in Australia on 1st August after six weeks in the USA (wonderful people). On August 2nd, second day here in winter it was 20C. Summer UK 20C, Winter Australia 20C. Wow, I was in heaven. No more days coping with freezing temperatures as I drove around seeing my customers. I remember one day getting into my car at three in the...
  5. GAY CHRISTIANS

    I hope you are a gay Christian? Jesus said he came to give us life and life more abundantly. Abundant life is enough to make anyone gay and happy. If anyone asks you if you are a gay Christian say yes, definitely. The fact is we have very stupidly allowed homosexuals to hijack the word gay and now homosexuals are not called homosexuals they are called gay, which they are not. Even the church itself refers to them as gay which it should not as it is a lie. Our instructions are to speak the...
  6. US ELECTIONS

    This year's US Elections are shaping up to be very interesting. We have a President that is somewhat of a mystery as he does some very good things and he does some very bad things. I will leave you to decide which is which. He appears to know what he is doing, just that he seems not to have refined the way he does them. I will point out that he is in another life a very successful billionaire and you don't become one of those by being all nice and soft-hearted. Most of these sorts of people...
  7. LESBIAN LOONIES

    I came across an article that showed what a bunch of loonies lesbians are. So self-centred and devoid of any compassion for children. It involved two lesbians that were married (sic) overseas in 2000 and had children together before breaking up and getting divorced. When I say together, they used a sperm donor with one of them. If that wasn't bad enough, they have been fighting over parenting arrangments for the last four years in the courts. Plus they have some embryos stored for future...
  8. I PROTEST!!

    From 1 May, Victorians can now change their gender on their birth certificate to any sex descriptor they wish every 12 months “without having to undergo invasive and costly sex surgery”. Children under 18 can also change gender through an application submitted by their parents. This is simply not fair! This new law says I can stop being a boy and become a girl if I want to and a year later if becoming a girl is not all it's cracked up to be, I can change back to being a boy again. And then...
  9. THE WAR ON CHILDREN

    The other day I was reading an article about how many mothers are working full time in the workforce. It broke it down into various professions and detailed what percentage of the workforce were women. Apart from one or two professions like builders and manual workers, in most cases, the number of women employed was nearly 50%. Apart from those one or two, none was less than 40%. In some cases, there was a higher percentage of women employed than men. This has terrible implications for...
  10. TRANSGENDER

    Whatever you believe, let me assure you now that being transgender is not what God intended. He is quite clear that he created us male and female and nowhere in scripture does it indicate that there was any other plan. Therefore the push for the transgender idea can only come from one person and that is Satan. People seem to have such difficulty knowing what the truth is. I don't because if you understand the basics, they will tell you all you need to know. It is like building a house. Get...
  11. FAMILIES

    Do you live in a family? if you do count your blessings because if Satan and his followers have their way they will disappear from the face of the earth. Regardless of your perfect/imperfect family can I say it again...COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS. Satan does not care whether your family is perfect/imperfect. All he is interested in is destroying it. Why is this? Because the family reflects the nature of God and the last thing Satan wants is anything that reminds him of God. You know, the person...
  12. PASTORS

    I was reading an article about expository preaching, one of my favourite subjects. I am just not into tickling ears preaching. The article talked about being a teaching pastor and my mind began to wander through the use of the word and I thought how ridiculous so let me begin. If you are the leader of a church you are a Pastor. Ignoring the fact that the New Testament church did not have pastors as leaders. The pastor always used to be a man and then the AOG started this idea of the husband...
  13. TWO THINGS I LOVE

    Apart from my family and twelve grandchildren, the two things I love is studying scripture, which I have been doing for 66 years (note not 666 years) and church history which to me is a fascinating subject. Add to that historical Judaism which is connected to church history. I have an eight-volume History of the Church written by Phillip Schaff which is considered to be one of the best. If someone says to me this happened or that happened, I go to this series to see if it did and if it did,...
  14. CHILDREN AND SINGLE PARENTS

    Yet another attack on the rights and needs of children has happened. You may already know about this, but it needs to be said. There are thousands of pieces of research that show a child does best being raised by their own biological mother and father, both of whom are present in the relationship. Why is it then that governments blatantly reject this evidence and make it legal for any Tom, Dick and Homosexual to have and raise children? In fact, any permutation will do as far as they are...
  15. I BET YOU DIDN'T KNOW THIS?

    "It is 2020, anyone who wants to be a woman can be a woman. A woman is anyone who identifies as a woman!” I read this only today. A woman who is the leader of a woman's organization asked the question "what is a woman" of several government and independent women's organizations. Believe it or not, they didn't know so all they could come up with is the statement above. So, this is the new truth. If you want to be a woman, go right ahead and you are a woman. Just put on a nice dress. Shove...
