Welcome message

Dear friends,

Welcome to my blog. I am honored to have you visit. I hope you'll find my articles a blessing. I welcome your input and especially comments and questions.

I write as a Christian from Jerusalem, Israel about Biblical subjects.

I am particularly interested in the subjects of children, families, women's issues, corporal punishment, science and nature as these subjects relate to the Holy Scriptures.

Yep- I come from a Holiness background, and all other translations are considered evil, unfortunately. In my own experience the Holy Spirit has enlightened me of several passages. What an amazing feeling to finally see the words of their Hebrew and Greek origin to be exactly the sentiment I'd discovered years before I had such study tools like the blue letter Bible and eSword. Other than the revelations found in your own book was Helen Wessels work about what the Bible really says about childbirth. My 4th child was born peacefully, painlessly, and calmly at home- blowing the pain-filled woman's curse out the window.

nice to hear from you.

I'll have to write more in the future about some of the tools I use in my own Bible study being that you mentioned some of yours.

Of course, the most interesting thing is that most of the older more established scholarly tools for Bible research are based on the King James Version!

All the best and thanks again for writing.

Going to post something in response to the last sentence of your comment. I hope you enjoy it.

Reading your blog about your kids and the whole diaperless program was very cool.

Maybe I'll pass a paper by you one day because I want to write something about family life in ancient times and it needs a mom's perspective.

Such a lovely, informative, and moving account of your father Samuel. God bless you for remember him in this way, and thus honoring both him and his ideas. I miss him still so very much and wish he and I could have shared much more over the years.

I just lost a "friend" last week over this very topic. She asked why call yourself a Christian if you didn't believe what the bible said. I said because I love Jesus but many parts of the bible have been mistranslated. She threw out that King James was accurate and God's word has been preserved so that wouldn't happen. I pointed out the same text as Crystal above about the supposed curse on women.
