Most club members "From guestwriters" do not have their own blog, but shall write under their own name as "Guestspeaker" on the Lifestyle magazine Stepping Toes.
Those who do have their own website can be looked at underneath:
Please do find those independent authors their recent postings on their own website:
Van de schrijvers die een eigen blog hebben kan u op hun site als laatste artikels vinden:
Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? God openbaart Zich als de Heilige, die de zonden niet kan verdragen en deze veroordeelt. De meeste mensen vrezen God echter niet. Hun denken en doen is gericht op het voldoen aan hun begeerten. Door deze aardse, vleselijke gezindheid is de mens onheilig en […]
In de Heilige Schrift hebben wij meerdere voorbeelden vna mensen met geloof, Abraham daarbij de voornaamste. Onze persoonlijke ervaringen en innerlijk gevoelen moeten ons leiden en bewust maken van de essentiële waarden en geloofspunten, zodat wij dan ook zullen kunnen getuigen van gods aanwezigheid in ons leven en in de wereld.
Strijdt om in te gaan door de enge poort, want velen, zeg Ik u,zullen trachten in te gaan, doch het niet kunnen.”(Lukas 13:24, NBG’51) In Lukas 13:23 lezen we hoe iemand Jezus vraagt: Heer, zijn er maar weinigen die worden gered? En zijn antwoord is: “Doe alle moeite om door de smalle deur naar binnen […]
In de Europese universiteiten vindt me de theologie als wetenschapsgebied in directe verbinding met concrete godsdienstige praktijken. Niet alleen in die zin dat die praktijken voorwerp van onderzoek kunnen zijn, maar zo dat de afgestudeerde theoloog bekwaam en geschikt zou zijn om in die praktijken een professionele leidinggevende rol te vervullen. Als die praktijken uit […]
Every generation has to undergo some turnovers on one or the other factor. What is to considered to be normal at one time in another generation can be “not done”. The last few years it seems like we are living in a society which wants to overcorrect itself. It wants to break with previous passages […]
Jeff Carreira notes that the world reveals itself to us in a stream of sensation. Man has to face a lot of things in his life; Growing up we always go from one (unexpected) situation onto another, always bringing new and other facts and facets. All the time we are confronted with lots of imprints, made […]
Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? God beloofde de Verlosser te zijn van wie geloven. In Genesis maakte Hij al duidelijk dat de mens betrokken is bij de tot standkoming van zijn verlossing: “En Ik zal vijandschap zetten tussen u en de vrouw, en tussen uw zaad en haar zaad; […]
Heeft de wetenschap al ooit kunnnen bewijzen dat God niet bestaat? In welke mate wil men alle moderne wetenschappelijke inzichten in de strijd gooien en/of zijn gezond verstand gebruiken en getuigenissen in de omgeving opnemen en deze met de Woorden uit de Heilige Schrift vergelijken?
In certain religious groups there are people who say one may not read philosophers their work. Many philosophers their thought have influenced lots of people. We always should remember that their thoughts are best read in context. In the context of the lives that they lived, the times that they lived in, and the history […]
All human beings are created in the image of God. This makes that we are or should be, all accepting the other as being allowed to be here by God and to be co-images of God and ourselves. The Divine Creator, Jehovah, the God above all gods, did not create more than one race. Of […]
NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo delivered the state of the state address. In the past year, New York state has been one of the hardest hit areas in the world by the coronavirus pandemic. More than 1.13 million New Yorkers have been infected by the virus and at least 39,600 have died, while thousands across the […]

Yesterday’s events in the United States Capitol shocked the world. So called “patriots”, incited to violence by the President, invading the Capitol building in a bid to reverse the result of November’s democratic election, is a reminder to us all of the fragility of democracy…
China and Russia had a big laugh yesterday when they heard the news of the rebellion taking place in a country which so likes to tell others how to have a just and democratic system. They and several other countries will use the incident to suggest America is in decline. And perhaps they have good […]
Yesterday we in Europe came something to see for which we have been afraid for the last few years. Europe saw a violent insurgency and attempt to overthrow the legitimately elected government of the United States In case Donald Trump would be right that the election was stolen, for surer, than it would have been […]
Lots of people had hoped a major time for 2020. It turned out totally different. For some the year 2020 brought a time of isolation and reflection. For others it brought a nightmare or a huge amount of work in very chaotic situations. Many families were confronted with the tragic loss of family members and/or […]
In the third quarter of 2020 millions of eyes were expectantly hoping that the dangerous years of the 45th President of the United States of America would come to an end. Pulling off a “remarkable turnaround”, Trump managed to attract “conservative Cuban-American voters and other Latino groups” at a rate that swung the result his […]
“ «Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto Jehovah, concerning the words of Cush a Benjamite.» O Jehovah my God, in thee do I take refuge: Save me from all them that pursue me, and deliver me, Lest they tear my soul like a lion, Rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.” […]
Today’s thought “God is our refuge and strength” (January 26) Just as parts of the Psalms, such as 22:1 and 16:10,11 foreshadowed events and sayings in the mortal life of our Lord, so Psalms 46 and 47 we read today can be seen as portraying the awesome events at and after the time of his […]
The Spirit of God calls our body His temple and as children of God we should unite and assemble in that spiritual temple by the formation of an ecclesia or church.
Those who have the truth received should go out into the world to share that Truth.
Today, in the early morning service we prayed to God and thanked Him for those who came from the Muslim faith and found our community to be under the wings of our master Jesus. You may or may not be aware of the problems with Covid widespread in Folkestone Camp. On the 20th of this […]
From old Christadelphian writings Moslemism, Mohammedanism, Islamism, are all names for the religion founded by Mahomet (Mohammed) at the beginning of the seventh century Mahomet’s battle-cry, first heralded from the cave at Hira, was: “There is no Deity but God, and Mohammed is the Messenger of God”. He was opposed by the chiefs of Mecca, […]
From old Christadelphian writings The more we compare the religion of Christ with that of Mahomet, the more manifest becomes the fact that the one was of God, and the other of mere man. And so with their founders. In Mahomet we behold a man of rank, influence, and fortune; a man of unbridled passion […]
From old Christadelphian writings Probably the reason why Paul circumcised Timothy was because he could not otherwise take him into the Temple (Num. i. 51). Timothy, too, was the son of a Jewess (Acts xvi. 1). It wasn’t, as some have suggested, simply to gain favour with the Jews, but to show that he was […]
From old Christadelphian writings From what Luke tells us about Cornelius, it is evident he was not simply a Gentile in the flesh, having no hope and without God in the world. The character the Bible gives him is that he was “A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which […]
Although the Sadducees, as a sect, existed before he Pharisees, they never flourished till the latter became popular. They claimed descent from Zadok (Ezek.xl. 46). They were a caste rather than a sect. They discouraged dogmatic teaching as to a future life (Luke xx. 27), and were sceptical towards current belief as to spirits and […]
Bible prophecies do not deal only with the ancient past. They also accurately foretell events that are taking place in our day. But at the moment we focus at numerous prophecies preserved in the Hebrew Scriptures (commonly called the Old Testament) which long before the man was born told about events which would happen in his time and around him, his betrayal, humiliation, torture, execution, death, and burial. From those writings of the Old and New Testament nobody should have doubts who that man is who is called Immanuel, the son of man and Messiah, born out of the root of Jess in the tribe of king David.
In Scripture, all things are directed towards a man who was a servant of servants, in whom people should come to have faith. First we saw the connection with Eve and her seed, and in this article you may see the connection with Abraham.
Already in the Old Testament we find the focus on a son of man who is called the son of God, who shall be the most pure set apart (holy) servant of God who was been told about in the Garden of Eden, to be the one bruised.
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]
After the horrible experience, having seen how their beloved master had died on the stake, the apostles had retreated themselves. The women who had watched the impalement from some distance got the courage to see if they could not give their friend a proper burial before the high holy day. “30 Therefore, when he had […]
All the time when the by Jesus chosen disciples followed him, they had several times doubts concerning his position and were convinced he was going to save them from the Roman oppressors. They were willing to see in Jesus that promised Massiah/Moshiach or Messiah (the anointed or christou / kristos / Christ), but thought him […]
We have come to the point where the people in Jerusalem had seen that the man of flesh and blood, Jeshua ben Josef, also known as the son of man and son of God, came to his death at the wood of execution. When Jesus walked around preaching about his heavenly Father and times to […]
Matthew 27:62-66 – Guards Seal the Tomb Against an Imposter MT27:62 On the next day – after Preparation – the religious hierarchy and Pharisees assembled together before Pilate, MT27:63 saying, “Lord, we remember that plotter said when he was alive, ‘After three days I will be raised up.’ MT27:64 So, command that the grave be […]
Matthew 27:57-61 – Jesus’ Body Given to Joseph of Arimathea || Mark 15:42-47; Luke 23:50-55; John 19:38-42 MT27:57 Now as evening was approaching a rich man named Joseph of Arimathea, himself a disciple of Jesus, MT27:58 approached Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate gave the command to release [the corpse]. MT27:59 Receiving […]

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #5 Evening Morning Period Beyond all question, the correct reading of Dan. viii.14, is, “And he said unto me, Unto two thousand, three-hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed”. There is not a tittle of evidence in favour of either two thousand two hundred, or two thousand four […]
Looking at the battle-axe and sharp threshing instrument of God, a strong nation favoured by God.
We have a look at the Redeemer mentioned in the Book of Job
Heb. goel; i.e., one charged with the duty of restoring the rights of another and avenging his wrongs #Le 25:48,49 Nu 5:8 Ru 4:1 Job 19:25 #Ps 19:14 78:35 etc. This title is peculiarly applied to Christ. He redeems us from all evil by the payment of a ransom.
( שׁילה: τα αποκειμενα αυτωι; qui mittendus est). The translation “”The sceptre shall not depart from Judah … . till rest come, and the nations obey him” deserves respectful consideration, having a reference to the Messiah, who was to spring from the tribe of Judah.
First of all to come to a good relationship with some one, one has to talk with that person and has to listen to what that person has to tell. God talks to the people by the way of His Word, presented to mankind by the many Bible translations, so that most people can read […]
The One Who created everything and Who gave His Word, did all He did with a purpose and out of love. The Bible teaches us that “God is love.” (1 John 4:8) Everything God does is motivated by love. Out of love created man in His image also with the intention to have a good relationship […]
In the previous writings we saw that the Divine Creator gave His Word to the world so that people could come to know Him. The Bible is a gift from God. It gives us information that we can’t find anywhere else. For example, it tells us that God created the heavens, the earth, and the […]
It is never too late to start the good habit of regularly reading the Bible, a Book of hope and comfort.
At the beginning of the new schoolyear there is a good reason from now on to invest each day in meeting with God.
After a respected Jew was falsely accused of stealing the royal curtains from the governor’s palace, the entire Jewish community of Prague was in mortal danger. But after miraculous intervention, the real culprit confessed to the crime, sparing the Jews of the city.
Is it possible to fulfil one’s obligation for Hanukah with electric light bulbs since it does not contain oil or a wick and is not reminiscent of the Menorah lighting in the Bet Hamikdash whatsoever.

The Days of Chanukah- Days of Faith As opposed to the other holidays and festivals which were already existent since Hashem gave the Torah to the Jewish nation, the holidays of Purim and Chanukah were brought about through two wicked men, Haman and Antiochus. Maran Rabbeinu Ovadia Yosef zt”l writes…
In 2020 our wintertime “festival of lights,” shall have to be celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods in a very close circle at are own home, without invited people.
Worship services in a limited form will again be possible from December the 13th, but we call for common sense and to avoid coming together with too many people out of your bubble. For Hanukkah everybody shall have to celebrate it in his own small bubble. Inviting others shall be not for the 2020 Winter festival or Winter holiday.
17 Tevet (1728) – Shearith Israel, the first New York synagogue, erects its first building in Lower Manhattan. In 1654 in New Amsterdam a group of Spanish and Portuguese Jews who fled the Inquisition and others who arrived from Dutch Brazil formed a meeting group. As oldest Jewish congregation in the United States they held […]

Passing of Maimonides (1204) Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, Talmudist, Halachist, physician, philosopher and communal leader, known in the Jewish world by the acronym “Rambam” and to the world at large as “Maimonides”, passed away in Egypt on the 20th of Tevet in 1204 (4965). On his gravestone were inscribed the words, “From Moses to Moses, […]

It is perhaps fitting that the Jewish community will finish its annual reading of the book of Genesis just as the secular year is ending. Or maybe not; Genesis ends with the deaths of both Jacob and Joseph, on a sorrowful note that portends hundreds of years of slavery. This…
The chapters of Psalms shatter all barriers and give us so much material to build us up to be able to come closer to the Highest of all.
Internet gebruik en vergiffenis op de Sabbath Groot probleem in de Joodse gemeenschap over internet verbindingen voor virtuele diensten is dat een groot deel van hen geen computer gebruikt net als dat zij die dit wel hebben, deze zeker niet gebruiken op de Sabbath of sjabbos. De sjabbes is voor velen ‘heilig’, zodat zij zich […]
Het coronavirus heeft ook haar weerslag voor vele geloofsgemeenschappen. Zij die zich aan de Ene Ware God willen opdragen hebben nu soms het gevoelen dat zij hun God te kort doen doordat zij niet meer het gebod van samenkomst en gezamenlijk gebed kunnen volbrengen. Zij voelen zich ver van hun thuishaven dat onbereikbaar lijkt geworden.
De angst voor het coronavirus houdt de Westerse landen in de greep terwijl Noord en Zuid Amerika het afwimpelen als iets onschuldigs en hun economie er zeker niet willen voor opzij schuiven. De corona pandemie slaagt er in om de gehele wereld in een ongekende levenswijze te brengen waarbij meerdere beperkingen de mensen slaven van een onbeheersbare ziekte worden.
In België en Nederland zitten heel wat mensen met een vast beeld in hun hoofd voor gebedshuizen, of het nu kerken, synagoges of moskeeën zijn. Wij hoeven ons echter niet vast te klampen aan zulke stereotype beelden en moeten beseffen dat God op iedere plek aanroepen en aanbeden kan worden. – In dit eerste deel kijken wij naar veroorzakers van vermindering vaan aanwezige aanbidders van God in samenkomst plaatsen.
Lockdown wegens coronavirus, gelegenheid om tijd te nemen voor je zelf en om even wat meer tijd te nemen om aan de Elohim te denken.
Volgens de Bijbel is de mens geschapen naar het beeld van God. Allah schiep de aarde en alles erop en eromheen. In plaats van dankbaar te zijn voor wat de mens van hun Schepper ontving, twijfelden ze aan Zijn autoriteit en wilden ze net zoveel kennis en macht hebben als Hij. Daarom aten ze van […]
According to Scriptures man was created in the image of God. Allah created earth and everything on it and around it. Instead of being thankful for what man received from their Creator, they doubted His authority and wanted to have as much knowledge and power like He has. Therefore they ate from the Tree of […]
The intention of this site was to be able to find answers to some serious questions and to know what others thought about it. But there were no answers from others and silence continued to form the fog.
Bedoeling van deze site was op enkele ernstige vragen antwoorden te kunnen vinden en te weten hoe anderen er over dachten. Maar antwoorden van anderen bleven uit en stilte bleef de mist vormen.
In this world we shall become even more confronted by people, be them politicians or church-leaders who would love to tell us than matters or different than we see it. Many of them will give the lie to make sure they would be more popular and receive more power. We must know that we shall […]
In which way can the Bible be a book to trust?
At the beginning of our contemporary age a son of man was hailed, by some triumphantly praised as a king entering Jerusalem, by others regarded as a dangerous person undermining their power. About 2 000 years later it are still religious leaders who do not want people to come to know that Nazarene man or to accept him as the son of God and future King of this world.
Jesus told his disciples that he will return only once and that when he does, after a time of great tribulation, it will be visible to everyone and be followed by immediate and dire consequences for those unprepared and for those who were adversaries of God.
The disciples expected that Christ would “come” as King, with a royal presence, and to remove the Romans and thrown down the corrupt temple, all at the same time and soon! It was a disappointment for them it turned not out that way, but they came to understand we could have an even much better future because of what Jesus had done. Though they also became convinced of the necessity to be prepared for the time that Jesus would return and that each believer could add by his effort of preaching, to bring the time closer.
All Christians are commissioned and obligated to be evangelizers wherever they are, in that they preach the good news to all sorts of men.
