Review of the Movie Frozen : A Biblical Definition of Love — Post by Michael J. Findley

The Disney movie Frozen is a vast improvement on the Hans Christian Anderson Faerie Tale The Snow Queen. The animation is the best of Disney. Rushed and somewhat confusing in places, it is much better than The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, the Lion King, or Beauty and the Beast. It is entirely 3D without the massive …

Burning Through the Basket — Post by Mary C. Findley

This morning we visited a church, and the message came from Luke 12. People by the thousands were stepping on each other to hear what Jesus had to say, but He started talking, not to the thousands, but to the disciples. In part, He said this: “But there is nothing covered up that will not …

A Not So Simple Look At Relativity — Post by Michael J. Findley

The importance of the theory of relativity is the religious conclusions rammed down our throats by religious bigots. This strong language is necessary to understand the unyielding priesthood these men have erected. These people have convinced themselves and many others that they are open-minded, kind and gentle. In their world, however, disagreements are only tolerated …

Book Review of Worlds in Collision — by Michael J. Findley

"I came upon the idea that traditions and legends and memories of generic origin can be treated in the same way in which we treat in psychoanalysis the early memories of a single individual. I spent ten years on this work. I found that the collective memory of mankind spoke of a series of global …

Ages In Chaos — Review by Michael J. Findley

This brief review of Ages In Chaos includes very few of the sources Velikovsky cites. Considerably more documentation for each point is available in the out of print book Ages In Chaos.

What Is The Best Way To Study The Bible? — post by Michael J. Findley

Simply do it. We do not learn the Word of God through osmosis. We cannot place it by our pillow as we sleep and expect the content to be absorbed like an ointment. Studying the Bible takes time and effort. It is not automatic. Line upon line, here a little, there a little, as Isaiah …

Studying the Bible to Become a Heretic — Post by Michael J. Findley

Charles Augustus Briggs, originator of the word "bibliolatry." "In every department of Biblical study we come across error." Briggs insisted.

Fallen Kings by Sarah Witenhafer — Review by Mary C. Findley

Even though I didn't manage to finish this book in 2013, I have to say it is the best one I have read, and it's going to be hard to find one to top it in 2014 (until the sequel comes out). Sometimes you think you know what you need, and what your people need. …

Honesty

With great sadness, I must confess that some people on facebook have forced me to block them. My personal standard for blocking someone is simple. Are they consistently dishonest? "But avoid foolish controversies, arguments about genealogies, quarrels, and fights about the Law. These things are useless and worthless. Have nothing to do with a divisive …
