This morning it came to me. Jesus sighed with frustration. He had been healing. He had fed thousands. He had preached the kingdom of God. But the Pharisees wanted confirmation. They wanted something spectacular: fire from heaven falling on sodden sacrifices, as in the day of Elijah. There would be no spectacular sign for this … Continue reading No sign shall be given: the signs are already here. [Mark 8]
The pattern among the early church of evangelism was one of obedience. They were told to wait in Jerusalem. They did. They were told to then preach throughout Judea. They did. They were then told to preach to the whole world. But they started with their own people. The early disciples were Jews. They taught … Continue reading Choose Christ or this world [Acts 11]
This is from John Ansell's facebook page. We don't give facebook traffic, because the Zuckerberg wants us all nicely to converge and encourages anyone who hates the West. But it is accurate for New Zealand. John has more courage than I do: his website drains the left's hate nicely. The text of the treaty is … Continue reading Maori Revisionists Always Lie.
If there was a Tory in charge of London there would be demonstrations demanding his resignation. Let us count the errors so far: I won't link to them all. There was no sprinkler system There was a fire-retardant version of the cladding put on the building.

If you are a pagan, you are accountable. for the law of nature is in front of you and you know right from wrong. You … Continue reading Flee the synagogues of Satan [Jn 8]
Ths is from Psychiatric News, and it relates to the idea that diversity is good, and it must increase. That we must all converge. As these very worthy people tell me how to do my job... I keep on thinking there is no idiocy like academic Yankee idiocy. You see, I have a bad habit. … Continue reading The cathedral will measure convergence.
Tagore is a precursor, and this is published over a century ago. Yes it is a translation. But his idea of dissolution, his love of death, and his hatred of order is now working itself out in the chaos of the West and ongoing hatreds in the East. This may look beautiful, but it is … Continue reading The converged poet.
What does the implosion of the Fourth Reich have to do with St Paul and us? I don't live in Europe. I live in a country which, historically, had an economic niche in feeding Europe. I am a child of an older empire: one that the home nation abandoned to join a bright and shining … Continue reading The bright progressive lie [Rom 8]
I know the NZ Herald is not what it used to be. It has become a tabloid in size, campaigns, distorts, and thinks it can set the agenda. It used to be the paper of record in NZ.
