I played golf with Lee Trevino the day he said “adios” to the Masters and its hallowed ground—Augusta National Golf Club. He wasn’t ever coming back. For an eligible professional golfer to pass up an invitation to play in the Masters, that’s like a pious pilgrim committing sacrilege by refusing to journey to the world’s greatest shrine or sacred place when the opportunity arises. For the world of golf during Masters Week, Augusta National is “holy ground.” The golf course is… Read more

Wednesday, on April 17th, the U.S. Senate voted against a bill that would have imposed stronger gun control legislation. It lacked seven votes to pass. President Obama had done much campaigning strongly in favor of the bill. And recent polls had shown that most Americans favored the bill’s increased gun control. It included stronger background checks, strengthening the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, and reducing the number of bullets in magazine clips for automatic weapons. This American sentiment for stronger gun control… Read more

A buyer of my RJC book just now emailed me saying, “I have been advised by David Burke that your book The Restitution of Jesus Christ “is the most comprehensive Unitarian apologetic available; you will not find a better one.” Australian David Burke is a leading pastor-teacher and sort of a spokesperson of the Christadelphian Church denomination worldwide. Although I don’t call myself a unitarian, partly because of the historical use of that term, I agree a lot with the original Socinians… Read more

I am a born-again, evangelical Christian. The institutional church says I’m not, that I am a heretic. Why? It’s creeds. Those creeds say that no matter what a person believes about Jesus, if that person does not believe in the deity of Christ, that Jesus is God, co-equal with God the Father, that person is not a genuine Christian and therefore is not saved. I say that’s a bunch of rubbish! I was saved when I was thirteen years old… Read more

Gas discoveries in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea could turn out to be quite a game changer for the Palestinians, even more so than for the Israelis. This subject has been very unreported in the U.S. In the late 1990s, the State of Israel contracted with both British Gas Corporation of UK (also has a partner) and Noble Energy Corporation of the U.S. to do exploratory drilling for oil and natural gas in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea in a large region… Read more

Mr.I was born and reared in Seattle, Washington. I didn’t come from a religious home. But both of my parents were from church-going families. So, they had respect for Christian people. And I had two uncles who were church pastors. One of them became the pastor of the West Seattle Church of the Nazarene. It was located about one mile from my house. So, when I was about six years old my mother began sending me off to Sunday school… Read more

Well, the 2013 Masters Golf Tournnament provided an exciting finish. Australian Adam Scott defeated Argentinian Angel Cabrera on the second hole of a sudden death playoff. There have been high expectations for Adam to win a major championship, and he has been knocking at the door several times in recent years. It has been the same for his countrymen to win a Masters. No Australian had ever won the U.S. Masters until today even though Austalians have won nine U.S…. Read more

The Masters is again providing excitement. After three rounds, several outstanding players have a reasonable chance to win it tomorrow. Angel Cabrera and Brandt Snedeker are leading at 7 under par. Adam Scott is one back. I think all three of those guys have terrific golf swings. Cabrera has sure proved it, with two majors to his credit. Jason Day was leading in the back nine and fell behind two shots. That’s two Aussies among the top five leaders. No… Read more

The Masters week is here! The Masters golf tournament is always held each year during the first week in April at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, USA. It is the first of the four major professional golf championships in the world. The others are the U.S. Open, the British Open, and the PGA Championship, in that order. These other three tournaments are held at a different venue each year. But not The Masters. The Augusta National Golf… Read more

This first day of my blog is April 1, 2013–April Fool’s Day. I’m a fool for Christ. This blog will be mostly an apologetic for Christian faith. I will attempt to present the faith of the early Jewish Christians of the first century as they handed it down to us in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. As the header of this blog states, I intend for this blog to be somewhat organized so that I will post on… Read more
