A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man
keepeth it in till afterwards.
This section is for my own, personal use. It is a place where I can
organize and store my thoughts and ideas for future studies. It is also
a place where I can let off steam and express my frustrations (of which
there are many) and organize my thoughts into a cohesive unit.
Many of these articles, I find as I reread them, (and occasionally as I
am writing them) are obnoxious, boisterous and sound as if I am down on
the world while thinking myself high 'n mighty and above it all. I am
tempted to redo them and soften them up, and may do so in the future.
But in the meantime I will allow my flaws and sins to remain exposed
with full understanding that I may regret it later.
With the above in mind, please understand that while it is obvious that
I have a hard spot on my heart for Theologians and the Pastors who
blindly follow them; I also recognize that there are many who sincerely
care about those who will follow their findings and sermons, and
diligently seek the Truth. After all, many of them believed so firmly
in what they wrote that they willingly died rather than recant.
Nor do I look down on the
Pastors and Preachers who follow the statutes of the Theologians. It
only makes sense that what they preach must fit into the dictates of
that organization which they serve. However, there lies the dilemma -
who is being served: the organization, the Theology, the People, or the
And I especially want to make it clear that I in
no way look unfavorably on those who believe and study what their
church espouses. We are not Theologians (though it seems as if I have
placed myself in that position and think I am)
and so we must humble ourselves and learn from those who claim to know
and have access to the Truth- and hope we are not
being deceived, because we will have to pay for
our decision, no matter how sincere we have been
in our choices.
I include in this
acknowledgment those in cults, other religions, and even the world. We
look on anyone who does not believe as we do as "wrong." But so do they
look upon us in the same way. Each of us believes what we are taught
to believe. Therefore we must be careful what we teach, and who teaches
And the only one who can
teach us Truth, is Truth Himself - God.
By accident (and
occasionally by design) I have come up with what I consider a jewel or
two, which may be found hidden amongst the brambles of these pages.
Primarily, however, serious studies, completed thoughts, entertaining
anecdotes and creative commentaries will be found elsewhere and not in
This said, proceed with caution and
clarity - and an understanding and forgiving heart.
