I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Book Review Of A New Ager

Here's a book review of Mike Evens book on The American Prophicies. No matter how you feel about Mike and his book you have to react at the shear rage and hate behind this mans review.

""Truth" and "Christianity" are mutually exclusive, February 19, 2005... Many of the reviews here use the word "truth" frequently. Yet most Christians wouldn't know truth if it came up and smacked them in the head.

Do you want to know the real truth--the unvarnished, unpleasant, cold, hard truth? The truth that you have avoided all your life, and can't bear to face?

The truth is that Christians can't handle the concept of death. They refuse to deal with the unpleasant fact that when we die, it's over. They want to believe the preposterous, absurd notion that when we die, life just keeps on going! They absurdly think they will still be conscious after death.

The truth is that there isn't a benevolent, fatherly being out there giving our lives meaning. We must find our own meaning in our lives. We are alone here on earth, with nobody but ourselves for guidance. Sorry if this inconvenient fact bursts your bubble, but Christians are living in a fairy tale, and it's about time they outgrew it. Get over it. Somehow, every other species manages to live without needing to rely on silly mythologies.

I realize that these truths are not easy. But the real fact of the matter is that when we die, we lose all consciousness, and we cease to exist at all. Done, finished. Don't worry, you've experienced this before--it's exactly how you felt before you were conceived, and brought into existance. No sadness, no joy, no pain, no laughter, no loved ones, no consciousness. How did you feel in the year 1832? Nothing at all? That's about right.

No heaven. No hell. No afterlife. No deceased family reunions. Perhaps you should see life as it really is--finite, precious, and worth taking seriously. Live well, be happy, try to make your life better, as well as those around you. Once over, it's over.

The Bible is a book, written by humans, for humans. Prophesy is purely the work of human imagination, and has an almost 100% failure record.

Sorry that your bubble has now burst. Today can now be the day when you finally grow up, and face reality. Reviewer: Truth Teller (Firmly in reality)"

I don't know about you but I see more and more of this sort of thing in the media. Every day the opposition grows more bitter. Not against terrorists. Not even Islam. It is against Christianity.

Poor Guy! Won't there be a shock for him when he dies and finds out that the Father who is benevolent now is also just and holy?

Eeegads! I'm glad you are back.

Do you realize we can't see your blog unless we click on a specific post? The middle part was erased.

We need to pray for this poor man. The Holy Spirit can speak even when our words fall on deal ears
