Gnostic?

Yesterday, we spoke about the Gospel of Mary, a Gnostic Gospel that was found in the town of Nag Hammadi with a large collection of early Gnostic writings. This place then became known as the Nag Hammadi Library. In both that post of the Gospel of Mary and the couple of sentences above, I have used the word ‘Gnostic’ repeatedly. I had a reader ask me what ‘Gnostic’ is and what makes it different than the Gospels of Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John? Continue Reading »

New Earth Book CoverWell, I finished my reading and my review a day early even though I struggled all week to get through chapter 2 of A New Earth. It was not because Tolle had tried to render the Christian faith useless again, but his views on the inner and outer being and the ego just struck me as…well…junk. Tolle’s views on the world have foundation, but he pushes them too far in trying to maintain his inner light theories. But I am getting ahead of myself. Hit the jump and check it out for yourself.

As anyone who pokes around the site knows, I do love the Da Vinci Code as a fictional piece; excellent thriller. I had a hard time putting it down even though I did not agree with it on a religious level. And as a side tangent, I am REALLY looking forward to the prequel of Angels & Demons that is coming out May 19, 2009! Angels & Demons was a better book than the Da Vinci in Becky and my opinions. But that is not what we are here to talk about is it!

Becky was reading another book that really sounded like Da Vinci Code and involved a hidden society, the bloodline of Jesus, and Mary Magdalene, of course all based loosely on what we are told is the Gospels of Mary. So the question is: What exactly is the Gospel of Mary? Continue Reading »

The Thin Line

Dr. Oz

          While I was driving to work today, I pondered the subject of the day; what would I write about? Then all of the sudden on the radio I hear the voice of none other than Oprah Winfrey inviting me to watch her show today. The subject of the day is going to be one of her new age friends, Dr. Oz(Don’t even get me started on that name Mr. Wizard!!!), mass hypnotizing the audience and getting them to “transcend” into their past lives.

Dear Oprah,

          One thing that I enjoy doing in the back end of my blog is reviewing the stats page. It shows you all sorts of interesting information about your blog. Not only does it give you the number of visitors, but it also shows how people got to the site, any links to the site that others have put on their sites(Thank you very much by the way), what stories people are reading, and so forth. The one that interests me the most, however, is the category called “Search Engine Terms” this shows me a list of what people were searching for on Google, Yahoo, etc. to get to my site. I can then use this info to try to give those searching more information about the subjects they are searching for.

          Two days ago, three people did a search that I just loved; they asked “What would Jesus say to Oprah?” I found that very interesting. What would Jesus say? I thought about this all weekend. I know several things I would like Him to say, but would He? I have come to the conclusion that it is not my place to speak for Him. But if their question was “What would you say to Oprah?” then I would have a few things to say. Continue Reading »

Now that we can post videos on WordPress, I thought I would share one of my all time favorite videos from GodTube. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

 

Vodpod videos no longer available. 

In a poll compiled by Beliefnet.com, 33% of the polled population states that they would believe Oprah Winfrey over their own clergy in spiritual matters!

That number is astounding to me and explains a lot of the current new age movement that she is spearheading! Please help me in praying for the misguided.

            I am not a huge Chuck Norris fan, seen a few of his movies and some of Texas Walker Ranger(since a buddy was in a couple of episodes) and the Chuck Norris internet jokes are so old I could cry, but I have to say he has my attention now. Way to go Chuck!

            So we begin our look into Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth. What I am going to do is take each chapter, read through it and try to be as open minded as I can; trying to get the purpose that Tolle is trying to communicate. Then I will go back through and list the things that are not Biblically sound. I hope this journey will be informative for both you and me. Continue Reading »

I have mentioned a time or two that I shop at Barnes & Noble for my book purchases. So today at lunch, while running my errands, I passed by a B&N and decided to drop in and pick up Tolle’s A New Earth. I agree with the comment that gracieguru posted; you should have read a book if you are going to call it trash. So I stopped in and went to the Christian section. I searched the alphabetical stacks and found the T’s. Looking down the rows I ran through the letters….T…..TO….TOL…..TOLL….Hmmm no Tolle found. So I went up to the information desk and ask the lady there. She knew the book and came out of the little circular information desk to lead me to my book.
