"I think the Western Isles have been visited and colonized for ages of time, especially from the time of Brutus, the Trojan, who is said to have settled near where London now stands.  I also think it is very possible that Paul did actually visit Mount Lud, where he promoted the gospel."

John Keister replied to Pastor Rolf Anderson's discussion What Does It Mean to Be Poor in Spirit?
"Dr Blake : The most comparable examples of I know of are in {Revelation 2 : 8+9}  although their poverty is primarily material their Spiritual Faith and response are "weak and poor". When you read the scripture in question taken in context with all the Scriptures about Spiritual Wealth opposed to material wealth they clearly work against each other. With  respect all scripture is copied from other copies and rarely if at all do the originals exist. "Differences like Blessed and Happy; do not change the "meanig of the scripture and are irrelevant to me. I am extremely confident in my interpetation since it fits perfectly with everything else I know about the Word. I know of one other scripture {John 5 : 6} indicating that to be "poor in Spirit is a Good thing" and could support the position of "Spiritual poverty" as an incentive to avoid spiritual complacency and slothfulness : While the overwhelming number of Scriptures throughout the Bible state the opposite is true about material we…"

Just wanted to let people know, my laptop is in the shop with the "GeekSquad" at the moment so it maybe a few before I am back. That is unless I use Ralph's desktop, which he doesn't like for me to do because I have a habit of messing mine up enough. So, please don't worry about me, I'm OK it's just my laptop that is sick. In the meantime, know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I hope to see you before we go on out trip starting the 28th, but if I don't see you before that, surely I'll have my laptop back on the 2nd. PEACE & LOVE

"John with respect if this is a error in grammatical translation, then the earliest of translations carry the same error, as does the original language versions."

Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Pastor Rolf Anderson's discussion What Does It Mean to Be Poor in Spirit?
"The verse is another slight mistranslated where the word ‘Blessed’, in most translations, comes from a word that that seems to have an inward and an outward meaning.  As the verse does not refer to the Holy Spirit (as you say Rolf) the word ‘blessed’ should more accurately be translated ‘happy’, as in the more accurate Young’s Literal Translation: “Happy the poor in spirit—because theirs is the reign of heavens.”
The ‘poor’ is in line with other NT terminology (the ‘oppressed’ ‘afflicted’ ‘miserable’ or the ‘needy).  My commentary says that the reason for this is that it is generally the poor of this world  who are ‘rich in faith’ [Jas 2:5] whilst it is the ungodly who seem to prosper in the world, in other places translated as ‘the humble’.  It is possible that this refers to the difference between the poor and the rich when Jesus says that a camel has more chance of entering the Kingdom of God than a rich-man.  This is a case of divided loyalties, as we cannot serve both God and mam…"

Introduction
 
In this county of Cornwall, traditions abound that Jesus visited these shores at least twice, maybe more.  But is there any evidence of these visits to a society that was not particularly literate, other than a few learned devotees to certain pagan religions.  The inhabitants of Cornwall at the time certainly seem to have known Jesus as a young boy and had a memory of Him that was passed on for several generations.  There exists here several  very ancient stone crosses that we call 'Tunic Crosses', which bear a depiction on the reverse, of a boy wearing a tunic, the sort that a Jewish boy would have worn.  This tunic is not the sort of clothes that would have been worn, or known, by Cornish people of the day.  There is a picture in the gallery of one of these crosses. 
 
As I stated earlier, Cornwall has always been a major source of tin, and modern mines have started to open here once more.  However many of these mines are very a…"

Pastor Rolf Anderson commented on Cary Byrd's article Why Does God Allow Evil?
"Yes, Brother Derek, God created us in His image and likeness, giving us free will so we all are alike in our beliefs (mostly) but separate individuals. God doesn't want automatons to spend eternity with! Think of the conversations we can have with Jesus! (come quickly, Lord Jesus!)."

I have known the famous song 'Jerusalem' by my namesake Wm Blake, since I was a child, it's a song that has become connected for all time to the W.I. (Women's Institute).  The words of the song go:And did those feet in ancient time Walk upon England's mountains green? And was the holy Lamb of God On England's pleasant pastures seen?And did the Countenance Divine Shine forth upon our clouded hills? And was Jerusalem builded here Among these dark Satanic Mills?Bring me my bow of burning gold! Bring me my arrows of desire! Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire!Yes the song asks whether Jesus actually visited this isle of England, something I assumed was about His Spirit rather than a physical visit.  However when we moved here from Greece slightly over a year ago, I encountered a strong tradition that Jesus actually visited this most south-westerly part of Britain.  I have to admit that I had a smile on my face as I set out to research if this was even possible…

Dr. Derek P. Blake commented on Cary Byrd's article Why Does God Allow Evil?
"To me there is a very simple answer to this question, but let's start at the very beginning.  It would seem that God created the Angels, the Bible tells us that angels are created beings along with everything else.

“For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created by Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.”  [Colossians 1:16-17]

God also must have created angels with free choice, just as He created us humans with the ability to make choices.  We also to need to bear in mind that God is eternal and although the angels are not eternal, they inhabit the same realm as God Himself.  As God seems to exist outside of time, then so must the angels [2 Peter 3:8].  However Lucifer must have existed at the the time of the fall as he had been cast out because of the choice that he had made and rebelled against his Creator.  Bec…"

Heaven Is Not a State of Mind

“I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2

Do you believe that there is a home in Heaven waiting for you? There is! Because Jesus cannot lie. He is Truth incarnate. He always told the truth. He said, “if it were not so, I would have told you.” Jesus would not let the hope of Heaven go on beating in your heart if it were simply a lie, a superstition, or a fond delusion. Heaven is not merely a state of mind. It is not a condition. It is a place so real that Jesus is there in a literal, resurrected body. There is a body in this place called Heaven. It is His resurrected body. Heaven is a place on God’s map.

Do you have a dream home? If you’ve never thought about what would be your perfect home, think about your Heavenly home. Nothing could be more perfect!
