About this site; Purpose and Reason
WELCOME TO OUR SITE:
The site administrator, the authors and the writings found here are dedicated to shedding light from the Bible on the times and seasons in which we live today. This site may occasionally contain information some people may find surprising and in some instances even shocking. However, the purpose here is not gaining acclaim or popular approval, rather revealing scriptural insight to those who respect and love truth. If you agree that the Bible is GOD’s own inspired communication and a source for truth for the human family, you are invited to submit essays or blogs for publication on this site. Since we do not believe contributors should charge for information they have received freely through God's spirit and his written word, the essays and blogs on this site will always be offered free to its readers. If you agree with this we welcome your contributions.
However, there are some basic guidelines we must insist upon. As with all else on this site, what you submit here should be based on the higher principals found in God’s word. We take the following Bible verses seriously and urge all contributors to govern their comments and remarks by being tastefully kind and considerate toward our other readers and contributors.
"Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone". Colossians 4:6 NRS
"Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to his neighbor, for we are all members of one body". Ephesians 4:25 NIV
"Don’t speak evil against each other, my dear brothers and sisters. If you criticize each other and condemn each other, then you are criticizing and condemning God’s law. . ." .James 4:11a.NLT
"Make sure that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always try to be
kind to each other and to everyone else." 1 Thessalonians 5:15 NIV
"But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth." Colossians 3:8 ESV
So, we urge all who wish to participate in this site to take the “high road”. Obscene, insulting or hurtful language is not welcomed on this site and will not be considered for publication.

ABOUT AUTHORS and WRITERS on this SITE
A note from the Administrator:
I make no special claim to notoriety or to impressive worldly credentials. However, is not this GOD’s way? (See 1 COR.1:27-29.)
My sole claim to knowledge is what GOD (YHWH) has revealed to me during more than forty years of loving and searching for truth, both in and outside of GOD’s own word. I challenge you to let truth alone test what I have written and be its judge.
