James Cameron And A Tale of Two Ships. - Comments (0)

It is ascribed that circus magnate PT Barnum said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” Barnum was an entertainer, and counted on suckers to pay for his shows.

Some else might have said, “Hucksters are a dime a dozen,” but usually they cost more than that.

If Barnum was right, popular huckster James Cameron – whose claim to fame is the titanic blockbuster film “The Titanic” (although it is now 10 years old) – only needs four years of sucker births to claim his new “documentary” to be a success. Cameron “claims” that he has found someone who has found the tomb of Jesus Christ, and that he did not rise from the dead after all.

Disagreeing to Agree. - Comments (3)

Recently, I received a reply to some Scriptural exegesis that read:

I refuse to argue with you, John.

As far as I am concerned, I have the one true religion and you can try to convince me all you want and I will not falter in my own belief, just as you apparently will not falter in your own.

Here is where I believe as mature Christians we will disagree.

So no arguing please.

Obviously, this itself is an argument – one frequently used – which has as its aim to stop a discourse, in this case specifically, my discourse to a small, but heavily Roman Catholic audience.

Here’s the short version: Stop writing.

I’m obliged to answer, in this case.

Being Inconvenient. - Comments (1)

It’s an unhappy experience to be inconvenient in large affairs.

I had received an anonymous phone call in 2003 from a longtime employee of the US State Department who told me that the expropriation of my investment was going to be ignored by the State Department due to the diplomatic primacy of the “war on terror.”

At the time, I could not fathom the connection, but as matters played out, I had to consider this analysis was correct. I had turned to Senator Hagel’s office for help, knowing that he was well-placed on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, but never considered this could represent a “wag the dog” scenario.

The lights went on for me after getting to know Lou Ann Linehan the hard way.


Lou Ann Linehan

Rexon Ryu had deceived me and others. It was clear by now there was another agenda at work in my matters. I had called Linehan before when having problems coordinating matters withe Hagel’s staff, which turned over in mazing numbers. I had learned of her reputation, and knew of her connection as Powell’s former Chief of Staff, and therefore she had to know everyone who wa anyone in State.

What I didn’t know was the kind of nasty, manipulative schemer she is!

Who, Oh Who, Is Rexon Ryu? - Comments (1)

Enter Rexon Ryu, a well-placed fellow who worked at the highest levels of the State Department, and who was added from there to Senator Chuck Hagel’s staff after his superior John Bolton accused him of insubordination.

Subesequently, John Bolton was named Ambassador to the UN over the objections of the Democratic party leadership, and Nebraska’s Chuck Hagel. Here is what Senator Hagel said to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer about Rexon Ryu:

“Well, first, Rexon is a fellow over in my office from the State Department. He is a highly regarded State Department official. He worked closely with Secretary Powell, Deputy Secretary Armitage and others when he was there.
He never mentioned this to me, to his credit. He’s a professional. He never once tried to influence my sense of where Bolton was or anything about Bolton.
This came out independent of any allegation that Rexon made to me or any information he gave me about this. So, there’s no question about how well thought of this young man is.”

Why People End Up In the Lake of Fire. - Comments (10)

Recently I experienced an exchange – about the way of salvation – get terminated by the pithy phrase “God loves all of us,” and “Can’t we agree to disagree.”

On the first count, God does NOT love all of us. I know that’s not cool to say, and seems to fly in the face of John 3:16, but hold your horses. we have to cut straight the Scriptures. The Bible says God “hated” Esau.

On the second count, I just despise the statement. It smacks of complete insincerity. What it really means is this: “We disagree, let’s drop the subject.” If all disgreements resulted in dropping the subject, nearly no agreements would ever happen.

Disagreement – whether in agreeable or disagreeable form – is not an optin for believers. The Apostle wrote to the Corintians, and stipulated they be in agreement, not only in mind, but in judgment.

God is not mockable. He cannot be worked. He punishes rebellion and disobedience. Those who quote John 3:16 as a proof text should read a few verses onward.

Sometime when watching a football game, I would like to see the sign read John 3:15-21 instead of 3:16. It would still fit on the screen, and I could still see if the field goal was good or not.

Maybe someone would even dare to put up John 3:36!

Can My Infant Child Be Saved? - Comments (19)

Some friends of mine have a tiny baby in critical condition. The thoughts of loved ones around them have gone to the eternal status of the child.

It’s interesting to me that many people wonder about the state of the child, but often overlook their own state!

But I though perhaps the consideration arises in the minds of many Christians, “Can this child be saved?”
