Pollution   The biggest form of pollution is the pollution of our minds. Or maybe I should say  believing the rubbish and the LIE that satan has planted in our minds. The LIE that God is a liar and that we are not like God.  The lie to Eve and [...]

That’s it! Finished! Ended! No More! Go Home! The End! Finis! No! No! No! No! No!  That is not what the word means, and it is not how it is to be used and understood.  Any good crossword practitioner knows that it is the answer to 6 Down - [...]

Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.  And thus we have a foundation for the doctrine of the Trinity.  Other events in the scriptures that support this include [...]

Titles 2

What about the hereditary titles, born into a family of royalty or a different level in society. Can we marry up or down, beyond our level in society? What kind of responsibilities does this bring? Are people born with a golden spoon in their mouth?  Do these titles make [...]

What's in a name, what's in a title. According to Wikipedia, “A title is one or more words used before or after a person's name, in certain contexts. It may signify either generation, an official position, or a professional or academic qualification. In some languages, titles may be inserted [...]

It’s Our Fault!

By |2024-05-23T09:36:00+10:0023rd May, 2024|Categories: Nuggets|0 Comments

‘Religion’ has often been accused of being the evil that causes war and famine and greed.  And just as often Christianity is appointed as the main culprit.  We can cite the Catholic/Protestant troubles of Ireland, the Crusades, the Pogroms against the Jews, the Spanish Inquisition, and many many more.  [...]

Theodicy 2

By |2024-05-16T13:24:00+10:0016th May, 2024|Categories: Nuggets|0 Comments

Does God then allow ‘too much’ or the ‘wrong kinds’ of evil?  This is not a question about absolutes, but is relative to our own preferences and prejudices.  It asks God to fit in with our own standards.  If God allows us free-will, can we then expect Him to [...]

Theodicy or, What’s the problem with Evil? In recent times we have heard much about the blessings and goodness of God.  But let’s be honest, there is much in the world, indeed probably in our own lives, that is not good.  We have aches and pains, there are cancers [...]

Faithfulness, Honesty, Truth

Hebrews 10:23 and 11:11 declare that “He who promised is faithful”, and that is one of the major themes of the New Testament writers.  How do we know that God is faithful, and what does it reveal?   We know that God is faithful to fulfill His promises from the [...]

No Condemnation 2

By |2024-04-26T15:31:47+10:0026th April, 2024|Categories: No Condemnation|0 Comments

Yes, we sing with great joy that God no longer condemns us, but let’s keep in mind the Lord’s message to us from Matthew 18:21-35.  We have been forgiven, why do we then go out of our way to condemn others?  How many times did our Lord say that [...]

So, we have looked at God’s hand on Australia during the First World War, but sadly it wasn’t the ‘war to end all wars’.  Australians have had to serve in many conflicts since, and have always been held in the highest esteem by friend and foe alike, being relentless, [...]

Now one for the ladies, though still connected to the First world war, but surrounded by controversy.  Throughout history Infantile Paralysis (or poliomyelitis) has been a particularly painful and crippling disease, but God raised up a young Australian lass, ignorant of ‘traditional’ treatments, who found a successful method for [...]

Heritage It is now more than 100 years after the first landing of Australian troops at Gallipoli on 25th April 1915.  Much has been said about that campaign and its effects on the Australian psyche.  But Gallipoli was not Australia’s only involvement in the ‘war to end all wars’.  [...]

 Familiar spirits and Ghosts- In European folklore of the mediaeval period, early modern times, even today, we have heard mention of ‘familiar spirits’. This could just mean a ‘close friend’, or ‘companion’ as in a dog (canis familiaris). A dog is man's best friend, they say. But that is [...]

Luke 14:25-26, “Now great multitudes went with Him. And He turned and said to them, “If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple”.” This has always seemed [...]
