Change the World!

In 1913, a young man about twenty years old took a walking tour in the rural province of Provence (pronounced “Pró_váhnce”), in southern France. A walking tour is when you hike through the countryside with a backpack and sleeping bag, traveling mainly on back roads or trails and sleeping at campsites or local farms or villages.

Provence was a rather barren and desolate area at the time, as it had been almost totally denuded of trees due to overcutting and too-intensive[...] read more

“Are You a Sightseer… or a Seer-Sighter?”

This revelation came to me as our train wound its way through the hills of Italy. As my wife and I gazed out the window upon the ruins of castles, palaces and majestic villas of bygone eras, we were struck by how these great buildings, these glorious edifices, these grand creations of man, had all fallen into ruin and decay with the passage of time.

While I viewed the historic hillsides with their once proud structures, now in ruins, I could envision the glories of past centuries,[...] read more

All Things Change, But Jesus Never!

Changes in man’s society—in his economics, politics, or religion—nearly always come from the bottom, not the top, because the top (the ruling elite) does not want to change; it always wants to be on top. But if they try to seal the pot to preserve the status quo, they cannot, and the pot will explode and destroy itself because of the fire.

There must be this continual change. Otherwise there would be total stagnation and corruption, because that which is at the top is[...] read more

Don Quixote de la Mancha, the amusing, crazily crusading hero and title character of Miguel de Cervantes’ early 17th century literary classic, was a caricatured figure of mingled fun and pathos. This gallivanting knight out of time with his generation was so demented he thought he was still living in the days of ancient chivalry. He rode around gallantly on his old nag, in a patchwork suit of armor, with a pot for a helmet, followed by his fat and fuming faithful “squire,”[...] read more

Dare To Be Different

A world-famous nonconformist named Jesus, while exhorting His disciples to leave their old lives in order to follow Him, warned them that they would be “as sheep in the midst of wolves” (Matthew 10:16). “If you were of the system,” He as good as said, “the system would love its own. But you are not of the system; therefore the system hates you” (John 15:19, paraphrased).

Dare to be different, He was saying. Venture to vary from the norm which the systematic system[...] read more

Did God make a mistake by putting Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, where they wound up making their own choices—the wrong ones? (Genesis 3:6).

Did God have to confess failure by the Flood, in that He had to wipe out all mankind for its wickedness? (Genesis 6:5-7).

Was the Tower of Babel a total disaster, and was the confusion of tongues a catastrophe? Or was it necessary to accomplish God’s purpose to humble and scatter man over the face of the earth? (Genesis 11:1-9).

Was[...] read more
