Interview with Steve Acheson very worth listening to.  This is my second interview with Steve who has a ministry of Deliverance and Counseling with a focus on domestic violence.

A DEMON POSSED MAN, A CASTRATED BOY, A WOMAN CAUGHT IN ADULTRY - NO WOUND TOO GREAT TO HEAL!

I love reading the various search questions that get people to my blog.  Someone recently searched the following: "an example of a new convert in the Bible."  Whoever you are, thanks for asking this question.  One of the most evocative examples from scripture of a salvation experience, which is the same today as it ever was except for the story that gets us there, is the Eunuch, a court official in the realm of Candace, Queen of Ethiopia.  Read Acts 8: 26-40.  This Eunuch is now a mature man, but he would have been taken in battle or sold into slavery at some time in his youth.  While still a young boy he was castrated; a brutal and barbarian practice of the time which many slaves did not survive.  Never escaping his history and the angst of this profound suffering and lingering grief, the Eunuch is drawn to the Old Testament description of Jesus' death on the cross which was predicted in the Old Testament long before it actually happened.  The historical novel, The Pers…

PLANET EARTH - THE COSMIC EPICENTER, GROUND ZERO

Is it by choice that we seek to settle the question of who we are in  relationship to a Sovereign Creator?  King Solomon wrote: He has also set eternity in the hearts of man (Ecclesiastes 3: 11a). 

Settling this question, even when a person decides by default to deny the existence of God, is an imperative of the human design as embedded in our physicality as the operational need  for oxygen. Erich Fromm believed that freedom (that God-given right of free will) was a source of conflict for all human beings.  On the one hand we need freedom and long for it on many levels.  On the other, the infantile core of who we are, drives some to reject personal freedom and by our choices we narrow our world.  Embracing freedom is healthy.  Contriving life events that constrain freedom through the use of escape mechanisms is the root of what makes us unhealthy. Fear of death, that we must face the inevitable decay of our bodies and believe this is inherently unfair, moves us toward settling this qu…

Mortgage Fraud - OHIO LAWYER - DAN MC GOOKEY / PROCESS, PRACTICE, AND TACTICS. He "gets" it.

Dan McGookey is an Ohio Lawyer with an excellent series of articles up on his website related to mortgage fraud. When I lost my home in 2012 it was so hard to find the information I needed in order to understand what happened.  And when I did it wasn't often articulated in a way that I could understand.  In every sense time has been on my side as I've dug into this and still have much to learn.  So when I find well written, helpful information I want to share it.  

There is a very streamlined chain of conspiracy in violation of RICO between Banks, the foreclosure Sub-Servicer industry, and the REO Private Investors.  In my case my home was sold to REO Private Investors who had inserted a fraud narrative into official records that my home was derelict and abandoned. With a forged certificate of abandonment this allowed a series of fraudulent appraisals; well under market value.  The sale could be seen on industry-only websites.  This sabotaged efforts to sell my own home.  With …

TWO CHRISTIAN LABELED MOVIES / SON OF GOD / NOAH / MEL GIBSON and the BENCHMARK

Son of God - The Film I saw the movie Son of God with some friends from church.  They thought it was wonderful and as I sat in the theatre I heard people around me shedding a few tears.  Afterwards we went out to dinner...  The discussion continued and I felt that, as people of faith, they were merely gratified to see any Christian themed film on the big screen and being critical just seemed ungrateful. For the number of Biblical errors and the degree of creative license taken I just couldn't agree.  So perhaps it would be more accurate to call this a Christian-themed film. To compare Son of God in any way with the excellence of The Passion of the Christ... well, that would be a travesty. Our benchmark standard of excellence has to be the Mel Gibson film. What offended me most of all was the actor chosen to play my precious Savior, Jesus Christ.  Diogo Morgado is a former model who was clearly cast for his appearance and not his acting ability. Many have since touted him as a sex s…
