Text from a recent podcast I listened to over at David Robertson’s Third Space site between a Dr. Sameh Maurice and Robert Martin on the Power of Prayer. Dr. Maurice:’We have seen signs, wonders miracles , people raised from the dead … Robert Martin: ”You’ve seen people raised from the dead?” Dr. Maurice: ”Yeah, yeah … More Oh, for gods’ sake!
A comment I left on the Wee Flea blog in reply to comments between John Z and Robertson will most likely not see the light of day. But it is worth a post. Now here’s a surprise. The bulk of John Z’s comments concern the general Australian view regarding religion which is … in his … More G’day! Pastor David Robertson on Australians.
Over at the Wee Flea, Pastor David Robertson is at it again. He has a book out called ASK, supposedly written for young people – what age exactly is a young person? – in an effort to answer all those really difficult questions these young people ask about Yahweh, and his ‘Grand Plan’ Robertson has … More Oh, for gods’ sake!
As far as my very basic understanding of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity goes – but who really understands it? -the Christian god is one god with three components – Yahweh, Holy Spirit and Jesus. One of the never ending circular debates about this nonsensical doctrine is whether Jesus is actually Yahweh. I have … More Oh, for gods’ sake!

I have been ”chatting” on a piece about how the Democrats have apparently passed a resolution against Christianity. They’ve done no such thing, of course but then, if it was okay for Eusebius to bend the truth I guess it’s okay for Tom Gilson, who wrote the piece. Tom was obliviously so incensed that I … More The Real Reason Donald Trump is President of the US of Eh?
I’ll be perfectly honest, I do not understand the intricacies of US politics over and above the bare bones of Republican vs Democrat. Red tie and Blue tie. Therefore, it has always intrigued me why the Republican Party seems to be labelled as representing Christian Values whereas the Democrats are portrayed (by certain Republicans) as … More God Bless Ermerica … ye haw!
One Christian likes to do a weekly News Round-Up thing and this week he mentioned that, in the Congo 2000 people have died from an Ebola outbreak. No link to the article and no more details. However …. Directly following this is the headline and link in bold that states: In Australia Anglican vicars marry. … More Oh, for gods’ sake. The Non-believer’s best friend! What a Nob.
What are the chances the president of a (UK) university atheists society would respond to a Christian who mentions Jesus with the reply: ”Who’s Jesus?” And no, I am not making this up. You can take a guess who the Christian is if you like and I’ll provide a link! Ark.
We’ve taught our kids they come about through chance through primordial slime, and then we’re surprised that they treat their fellow Americans like dirt! the problem is not the absence of laws, it’s an absence of morality. Really, the result of the decades-long march through the institutions of America, driving religion and God from the public … More Oh, for god’s sake!
Excellent summary, David. It is extraordinary how so many supposedly intelligent politicians have completely lost their senses. *I support Brexit and I think that it is actually part of God’s plan for our future. What has struck us in our prayer group is the Verse from Deuteronomy 28:28 – “The Lord will (has!) afflict you … More ”I support Brexit….”, and according to some, so does Jesus’ dad, apparently.
