In the 1960ies we often heard it said that God was dead. Carl Ludwig Nietzsche, was appointed pastor at Röcken by order of King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia, after whom Friedrich Nietzsche was named. Before Friedrich Nietzsche’s fifth birthday his father died in 1849. He was left to live in a household consisting of […]
Tragically, the simple words “Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8) have been grossly misunderstood as meaning that Christ died instead of us. There are a number of connections between Romans 5 and 1 Cor. 15 (e.g. v. 12 = 1 Cor. 15:21; v. 17 = 1 Cor. 15:22). “Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:8) is […]
“Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Rom. 10:17) The Apostle Paul in this verse tells us that no one can believe unless they hear. In the same context, he also says that no one can hear unless “a preacher” is “sent.” (vss. 14,15) Thus, without question the “sent preacher” is […]
Documents of the Christian Church 2nd Ed 1963 Henery Bettenson (quotes from Arius and his followers) “If, said he, the Father begat the Son, he that was begotten had a beginning of existence; hence it is clear that there was a [a time] when the son was not.” “The Son of God is from what […]
Many who believe in the trinity are surprised to learn that the idea of divine beings existing as trinities or triads long predated Christianity. Yet the evidence is abundantly documented. So let us have a look at some of the evidence. Marie Sinclair, Countess of Caithness, in her 1876 book Old Truths in a New […]

Who does not know the popular topical debate television BBC programme “Question Time” based on BBC Radio 4‘s debate radio programme Any Questions?, which is usually broadcast on Thursday evenings on BBC One after the late news (and slightly later in Northern Ireland).

The reblog A Progressive Call to Arms caused several very different reactions. Pity some people did not want to react straight on the article and choose other, non public, ways. We very much appreciated the reaction of “camden41” a retired public school administrator and retired history professor, who took the time to spend a whole article […]
1. Clarification We love to clarify some expressions and make it clear what our thoughts are on the present subject of the Clinton-Trump matter. It looks like the article A Progressive Call to Arms made some Hillary Clinton fans angry taking we are attacking her and in favour of Donald Trump. The other way round we […]

2016 seemed to be the year lots of people thought it had become really time to leave this place like it was, them not having to worry about it any-more. Alida Victoria Grubba Rudge, 113, became Brazilian supercentenarian, nation’s oldest person. Nola Ochs, 105, American centenarian, became the world’s oldest college graduate. Guyanese novelist (To […]
Merkel‘s popularity had suffered in 2016, following a rash of sexual assaults in the western city of Cologne on New Year‘s Eve blamed mainly on Arab and North African men. Going from 2015 into 2016 in some German cities brought out the animal by several Muslim youngsters. More than 600 women claimed to have been […]
2016 year of dissonance, despair, where all certainties were brushed away When Israeli commandos in 2010 intercepted a flotilla of ships seeking to break Israel’s blockade of Hamas in the Gaza Strip a diplomatic rupture broke several contacts in the world. There was a six-year-long deep freeze in relations between Turkey and Israel which this […]
Wanting to write on what happened in 2016 I noticed I have forgotten to publish some articles I wrote this year. The time went credibly fast when our thoughts had to go to so many people in trouble, having to face so many horrible moments. Some may call this the most horrible year of their […]
2016 is quickly coming to its end. By many it shall not be forgotten soon. Lots of people in 2016 lost their beloved ones and got confronted with a lot of bloodshed. Though there is no World War going on 2016 had acts of war and terror spreading all over the globe. Looking back at […]
After a long and hard battle some hours later than the victor has gone on the stage she apologised for not winning this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country. She knows how disappointed many Americans feel, because she feels it too. Not only do tens of millions […]

Surely there is nothing sadder or more tragic than individuals claiming to be brethren and sisters of Christ who “do not know what to do with their time”: who “have nothing to do”. There is enough to do to fill a hundred lifetimes, if people would open their eyes, and get their little minds off […]
In de vorige artikelen hebben wij naar het ontstaan van de mens gekeken en de verleiding die hij onderging, uitgebeeld door een slang rond de Boom van Kennis van Goed en Kwaad. Addendum: de begrippen satan en duivel in de Bijbel Het bijbelse begrip ‘satan’ Toch kunnen we dit hoofdstuk niet afsluiten zonder enige aandacht […]
Zo werd ook het eerste mensenpaar beproefd, opdat de mate van hun geloof en gehoorzaamheid ook onder beproeving zou blijken. De suggestie voor de overtreding kwam van buiten, maar het was de mens zelf die faalde. Die suggestie kwam voorts, volgens het bijbelverhaal zelf, van een medeschepsel dat wordt omschreven als “het listigste van alle […]
Beproeving is noodzakelijk De Bijbel heeft dan ook een ander verhaal te vertellen over goed en kwaad. Het kwaad in de wereld is niet geïntroduceerd door een grote tegenstander, maar door de mens zelf. De apostel Paulus zegt: “Daarom, gelijk door één mens de zonde de wereld is binnengekomen en door de zonde de dood, […]
Er is een wereld geschapen die door de rebellie van de eerste mensen beschadigd is geworden. In die wereld verkoos de mens zelf voor zich in te staan en beslissingen te nemen, wat noodzakelijk maakte dat die mens regelmatig dan ook zelf keuzes moet maken. Hierbij zijn er velen die wat graag die eigen keuzes […]
De Voltooiing van de schepping Op weg naar volmaaktheid In Gods plan is het leven een leerschool. God is bezig de mens naar de volmaaktheid te leiden. Want de mens is nog niet ‘af’; hij heeft nog verdere vervolmaking nodig. De mens moet door beproeving opgroeien tot een bruikbare dienaar. Hij moet leren zijn […]
The first human beings had chosen to go their own path. As any good father would do when his children had done something wrong, God punished them. But as a loving Father He in His great mercy promised for a solution and preserved David’s bloodline and the Messianic promise. Mankind had chosen Yet, we each […]
Do you know where in the Bible we find God‘s first promise to send the Messiah? The answer is foundational to our faith because within this first Messianic Prophecy mentioned in the Bible lies our fate of eternal separation from God. Too many christians limit the Bible to the second main part, the Messianic Writings, […]
The Divine Creator of heaven and earth wished not to leave the ones sent out of the Garden of Eden on their own. Though Adam and Eve rebelled against God, Him having expelled them, the Elohim was willing to stay close to them and to help there where He could or where it was appropriate […]
Those people coming from the first man and woman in a certain way got infected by the wrong choice these people made. God gave a free will to the human beings He created. He did not want them to go wrong or to have it bad, but because they objected to His ruling or His […]
From the Bereshith its first chapters we can imagine that there was no ego till the animal stage. When man came into the picture there came a personal feeling direct the coarse. The first man or 1° Adam, felt lonely, though there was God and all His creatures. He wanted a helper and got it. […]
Matthew 5:27-30 – 2. The Nazarene’s Commentary on Exodus 20:14 MT5:27 “You heard it said: ‘Commit not adultery.’ [Exodus 20:14] MT5:28 But, I tell you: Anyone looking at a woman, desiring her in his heart, has already adulterated her.

Mankind received God’s commandments so that they could have something to hold on to and have some guidance to build up their life. Man had chosen to go his own way. Lots of people thought they could do without God,though as soon as time proved too difficult for them they were always fast to ask […]
In the previous two chapters we have seen that the first human beings took a wrong direction and had their relationship to God damaged. We also saw that there was a need of a redemption price for which God could not be the stand in or become an incarnation and play a man. As such […]
Divine Justice requires the punishment of disobedience, and cannot allow the guilty to be cleared.(Exodus 34: 6, 7; Rom. 3: 19.) This is the basis of God‘s dealings; “Justice and judgment are the habitation of Thy throne.” (Psa. 89: 14; 97: 2.) He is ” the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither […]
From earliest times to the present day, the necessity of sacrifice of life for expiatory purposes has persisted as an idea in the human mind. This necessity was illustrated at the first by the coats of skins which the Lord God made for Adam and Eve after sentence had been pronounced on account of their […]
At the end of the 20th century lots of Roman Catholics in our regions had enough of their church which had seemed to have told many lies and had protected lots of clergy who had abused minors. The sex-abuses of the previous century made lots of people very cross with church, and strangely enough instead […]
In continuation of looking back to what happened in previous century and how it influenced today’s church, we republish some writings from the Bible Students magazine “The New C o v e n a n t A d v o c a t e” of April, 1909 Desertions from the State Church in Germany are […]
When wondered about a godhead and having come to the conclusion that there must be a Divine Creator or Supreme Being that surpasses all human and animal beings, we may question if it is possible for us to have a relationship with that Higher Being. What does it take to begin a relationship with God? […]
In March 2016 we created on Weebly a website to talk about man’s relationship with God. After we had done all the placing of pages and came to the contact form and placing of a Gravatar for the replies, we were brought to WordPress where we not only could choose a Gravatar but also got […]
Throughout history of mankind there have many groups of people who worshipped a triple deity (sometimes referred to as threefold, tripled, triplicate, tripartite, triune or triadic, or as a trinity). Those people who worshipped such tri-une god all claim they only worship one deity. Such deities that are worshipped as one are common throughout world mythology; the number three has a long history of mythical associations. Carl Jung considered the arrangement of deities into triplets an archetype in the history of religion. But the God of the Bible is clear about Which God has to be worshipped, not a more headed, be it an eightfold, three-une or bi-one god, but only the God of Abraham, Which is only One God of gods.
Find out in this article and its links how Jews, Christians and Muslims may have been influenced by the pagan gods and false teachings and how they have to separate them from such pagan teachings.
You may wonder if there really exist a God. You have all reason to question His existence and to check if you are feeling right or thinking the right way. We are even requested to examine our own faith. It is important to know what you want to believe, what you want to take for […]
Though being the most reprinted and most translated book many people doubt the authority of that bestseller of all times. Not all people are convinced it has something to say for them. Even lots of Christians never took the time to read the Bible from A to Z. Lots of people do think it is […]
Created in the image of God man has 49 sefirot in him or a 49-step process of self-refinement, having received orders from his Maker Who expect to fit man in His holy Plan.
After having brought structure in the cosmic chaos living creatures after their kind, came to populate waters and land. Last but not least human beings got the breath of life in them to multiply on earth.
When living here on earth one best can have a look at the origin of everything. Here we look at the first periods of the total beginnings or the creation of everything and What was behind it.
In the world of Christians and Muslims there are those who may think the Torah is not for them and that they do not have to keep to the Laws of God any more. Some even prefer to follow the laws of their religious group as if that is more important than following the Laws of the Set-apart Scriptures.
The world received a Sent one from God who came to give the proper, God-intended interpretation of the Torah! People do have to come to recognise that sent one from God and have to follow his teachings, with the knowledge that he is the Way to God.
That sent one from God also expressed his believe in his heavenly Father Who is the Divine Creator all should come to accept as their loving Father as well. He is The One Who knows our heart and Who has provided for us a manual for our life which also explains His Plan. That manual is the Torah, we all should to favour as our most important Guide for our life.
The Divine Creator provided the greatest tool to learn what we should know, to make the best of our life, with His infallible Word, collected in 66 books, whereby 25% of the text is focussing on a Mashiach or Messiah, a Saviour for all mankind.
For some people it may look an arcane language of ancient times not useful any more for our contemporary world. The written collection of order, instruction, or guide, issued by an authority much higher than any living being on this earth, may for many be not easily understood, abstruse or obscure, because they just not want to listen to the words like they are written down but prefer to listen to human doctrines which may confuse lots of people and bring a lot of false teachings into the world. The Bible is not at all arcane, requiring secret knowledge to be understood. One does not have to have a degree in theology to come to understand God’s Word. To get to understand it and to get wisdom one needs to read it regularly and has to study those words given by the Most High, giving more attention to them than to words of so called theologians who prefer to hold on to human doctrines instead of Biblical doctrines.
Veel mensen, met name de Engels sprekenden, vergeten dat er in verschillende talen “Allah” als woord gebruikt wordt voor Dé God, alsook voor andere goden of een god aan te duiden.

The Divine Creator Allah the Exalted in might provides information about the total encompassing nature of His divine decree and pre-ordainment, “No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves” and this is comprehensive of the encompassing nature of the calamities which afflict creation, whether of good or evil, that all of them are written […]

Continuing on my 2nd and 3rd question and my article on From Guestwriters and on “Looking for answers on the question Is there a God” in case we do have to assume there is a god or gods we should wonder what or whom that god or gods may be.
Voortbordurend op mijn 2e en 3e vraag en mijn artikel op From Guestwriters en ‘Op zoek naar antwoorden op de vraag “Is er een God” ‘ voor het geval dat we moeten aannemen dat er een god of goden zijn we ons zullen moeten afvragen wat of wie zulk een god of goden wel mogen zijn.

“We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.” Kurt Vonnegut I have often been fascinated by people’s perspectives; the fact that two people can look at the same thing or event and experience totally opposite emotions.
