In order to continue providing you my readers with, well, continuous improvement, I revised my blog's description (see above).  I figure I can blog about any major cosmetic changes I make so we can both reflect on where we have been and where we are going.

I have changed my blog's header to reflect a new image which I created from a photo I took in San Diego while on vacation. It was at a landmark whose name escapes me.

It certainly reflects my worldview. Or it should.

The alternative to seeking employment at a "company" is working for yourself.  In my case, that would be an alternative universe-- a "pipe dream" -- a fantasy worthy of its expending my mental energy when the prospects of getting something I can do for a living seem bleak at best.

Welcome to the world of web design! It is a world in which its citizens explore the possibilities of an alternate universe of autonomy, or self-rule (limited by reality).

A blog is a journal, of sorts. It is an online window to the soul of the writer. A blogger must come up with something worthwhile and substantial to blog about, or he perish.

More to come...

Though with fear and trepidation, I post this brief article as a herald to the New Reformation of the Christian Church on the subject of eschatology.

Just as the cry of Martin Luther in 1517 was, "the just shall live by faith"(Habakkuk 2:4), so the cry of 2012 shall be, "This generation shall not pass away until all these things take place."(Matthew 24:34)

This is a "time statement" in the New Testament worthy of all acceptance.


Today finds me tweaking my blog's appearance while listening to radio. I think I am pleased with it enough to leave it alone for now.

It seems that The Venerable Bede, of Old English fame, favored a "later date" of 84 A.D. (later than the early date of the 60's A.D., but earlier than the official  "late date" of 95 A.D.) for the writing of the Book of Revelation by the Apostle John.  You may find Bede's reference to this in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle at The Gutenberg Project.

This throws a bolt, rather than a "wrench," into the full preterist machine. I consider myself a FP, in that I believe Jesus' prophecies regarding the end or destruction of the Old Covenant were fulfilled in 70 A.D.

Therefore, I highly doubt that there will be a future coming in judgment on the earth by Christ because I have been looking at the preterist interpretation of these events. Their fulfillment eliminates all futurist speculations about everything in the Book of Revelation. That is what appeals to me about it (Harold Camping and others notwithstanding).

Of course, let us not go beyond what Holy Scripture says, and presume that God is "done" with everything else in the world.

He isn't!

14 But as for you, zcontinue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom1 you learned it 15 and how afrom childhood you have been acquainted with bthe sacred writings, cwhich are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 dAll Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that ethe man of God1 may be complete, fequipped gfor every good work.(II Peter 3:14-17 ESV)

It seems reasonable to me to:
   a) try Blogger's new interface
   b) pray to God all the time
   c) blog about praying

...because I am sitting here blogging instead of praying!
