Jews--"He [Jesus] practiced sorcery and enticed Israel to apostasy" (Sanhedrin 43).George Bernard Shaw--"All great truths begin as heresy."Jesus--"The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.

I will make them envious by those who are … [Read more...]

Book Review of Deane Beman: Golf’s Driving Force (Part 2 of 2)

“Chapter 2: First Commissioner,” is like a flashback in a movie. It takes us back to the PGA Tour’s split from the PGA of America in 1968. That was the source of the “Statement of Principles” that Deane had discovered and led to the stopping of his being fired in 1983. And to understand that crisis, we have to briefly consider how the PGA Tour came into existence and what the PGA of America had to do with it.The PGA of America’s headquarters are located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Its web … [Read more...]

More Reasons that Only the Father Is God (which are not in my RJC book)

Theodotus of Byzantium (later Constantinople), also called “the Tanner” and “the Shoemaker,” was a Christian writer in Rome during the late second century. He affirmed Jesus' virgin birth and miracles yet denied he was God. Victor 1, the pope of Rome from 189 to 199, condemned Theodotus’ writings and excommunicated him from the Catholic Church. Since the Church always destroyed writings it deemed heretical, we don’t have any of Theodotus’ written works, but only some information about them in pat … [Read more...]

Peter’s Kingdom Keys Explain Spirit Baptism

One of the foremost events in the history of the Jesus Movement--which later developed into the Christian religion--was that on the first Day of Pentecost after Jesus’ death and resurrection the Holy Spirit came upon his disciples at Jerusalem and they were "speaking in tongues” (Gr. glossalalia) in partial fulfillment of Joel 3.28. We read about it in Acts 2. Luke, the author, explains that the disciples spoke foreign languages unknown to them, but known to the thousands of Diaspora Jews who wer … [Read more...]

Can Genuine Christians Be Trinitarian or Non-Trinitarian?

Yes. I was a Trinitarian for twenty-two years until God enlightened me through scripture that being a Christian has nothing to do with being Trinitarian. Contrary to church dogma, you don’t have to be a Trinitarian to be a Christian. And being a Trinitarian doesn't disqualify you from being a Christian. I can prove these things from the Bible.I was born and reared in Seattle, Washington, where I attended church Sunday school in my youth. When I was thirteen years old, one day after class I a … [Read more...]

Book Review of “Deane Beman: Golf’s Driving Force” (Part 1 of 2)

For professional golfers who ever competed on the PGA Tour, Adam Schupak’s book Deane Beman: Golf’s Driving Force (2011) is a must read. Many club professionals who never played the PGA Tour will find it interesting as well, partly due to the relationship between the PGA Tour and their association, the PGA of America. I’m not going to do a full book review of it here, but will tell mostly about the two crisis the Tour had, one being during Beman’s twenty-year career as commissioner of the PGA Tou … [Read more...]

Jesus asked, “Who Do People Say I Am?” No One Said He Was God.

Jesus performed several roles: a seer-prophet, a reformer, a wisdom sage, a healer, an itinerant preacher, and a Torah teacher. About in the middle of his public ministry, according to the Gospel of Mark Jesus asked his male disciples, "Who do people say I am?" (Mk 8.27 NIV). Large crowds were gathering to hear Jesus pronounce his parabolic pearls of wisdom and perform his mighty deeds of healing and even nature miracles, and they were awestruck. That's why they began to ask who he was and if he … [Read more...]

Jews Thought Jesus Said He Was God’s Equal; But Jesus Explained That Would Be Evil

Once when Jesus attended one of the feasts at Jerusalem, he saw a man sitting by a pool of water who had been paralyzed, apparently from the waist down, for thirty-eight years. Jesus said to him, “Arise, take up your pallet [bedding], and walk” (John 5.8). It was the Sabbath, the man did so, and he was accused of breaking the Sabbath.The Sabbath is the seventh day of the week on the Jewish calendar. It was supposed to be “holy,” meaning set apart from the other six days to worship God. One of … [Read more...]
