Jesus 3:16 — Home Page
My other website, northforest.org, with over 350 articles, documents the 25-year evolution of my ideas having commentary on many writings of others. But I got tired of all this historical and scholarly perspective so I started my new website, this one, jesus316.com
Audience (this website is not for everyone)...
I highlight these everywhere but especially here. Such things as...
To find articles...
Symbols for links (click on them)...
Article summaries (for quick reading). I highlight my views on key topics. To view a random one, click on the pretty blue circle having arrows. This is probably the fastest way to get a summary of all my views.
Regarding writing style: on occasion I use colons: and ellipses... wrong and violate other rules of grammar and syntax. I do this (usually) on purpose, hopefully to good effect to add a bit of color for an otherwise humorless topic. Regarding "he" vs. "she": I use "they". And I don't like saying "their minds" when each has only one, so I prefer "their mind". (Likewise for "husbands, love your wives".) Also, sentence fragments.
I am dedicated to truth and to eradicating untruth. I comment on the Bible and Christian teaching to highlight truths and to point out errors. I trust many of the findings of modern science but agree that many scientists, archaeologists, and scholars are anti-Christian and they not-so-subtly subvert the Bible and Christianity, as do many fundamentalist evangelical Protestants (they don't know they do this).
I am not any of these by occupation: historian, archaeologist, scientist, psychologist, Bible scholar, philosopher — but have a science background and a B.A in Social Science.
I am a philosopher (not affiliated or accredited by anybody). My sources for truth: (1) modern science (but not its assumption of materialism), and (2) Biblical Christianity (not necessarily Protestant or Catholic). The domain of study is Christianity and the Bible.
On my website I have no links to external sources for these reasons: (1) I don't want broken links littering my site and am tired of fixing them all the time, and (2) I don't want to defend the views of the people providing the ideas.
I present ideas that seem plausible, rejecting those that seem wacky or weird, and generally reject conspiracy theories (but do consider them). For some of the ideas I present, I believe they are true, for others I have no idea. In my Bible Commentary I assess the text using my methodology of interpretation. I am not a theologian nor Bible scholar and do not know Hebrew or Greek.
I always favor accepting the Bible accounts as true historical facts. I only reject this with significant evidence.
