What We Try to Do Here

Christianity is not a brainless, wild and woolly faith. I never thumped a Bible – who needs to?

After nine years of writing, I learn my readers are primarily that 30% of Americans who don’t go to church, or wish they had something more, yuppies and the discontented. God knows your questions and He has answers. My job is to find them and send them off to you. I hope this makes good sense to you, because He said, “Come, let’s reason together.”

It is reasonable, and then exciting and then, literally out of this world. Join the fun.

The Multiverse of the Individual

God’s people began ignorant

The apostles (disciples) were, just as we are, completely ignorant about who Jesus really was, and what his program and purpose on earth might be.  They started out believing, because they were part and parcel of his activities, that he was a nice man with special God-given powers.  When he died they scattered not because they were disloyal but because they thought he was like other men, the way any person who recognizes that his hero is dead and he needs to find another hero, another leader.

A dead Jesus is better than a living one
