Has Our Errant Government Stirred God into Corrective Action

For those of you who have a good and rounded knowledge of the Hebrew scriptures of the Bible (or Tanakh for our Jewish friends), it becomes very obvious that when the Commonwealth of the Hebrew familial tribes obeyed God they were given peace from the incursions of their neighbours and their interna…

Foreign Citizenship is Not An Exclusion Test Solely for Parliamentarians

We here in Australia are now faced with several of our federal parliamentarians being judged ineligible to serve as representative members of Parliament because of their non-compliance with the foreign citizenship test for holding such positions within Federal Parliament.  We can note that the great…

Is the Voluntary Postal Plebiscite a Call for all Christians to be Numbered?

Australians, as a general rule, are reasonably easy going and politically don’t engage in over-reactions as the various political parties vie for leadership in the country’s State and Federal Parliaments.  But every now and again there comes a time when extraordinary events occur that challenge our …

The Australian Constitution : Can We Rely On the Government to Uphold It?

I wish to indulge your interest in the people’s right to be able to “humbly rely on the blessing of Almighty God” as afforded to us all at Federation by the Constitution of the Federated States of Australia.  In support of this comment I refer you to the preamble of our Constitution - which reads: …

Thoughts About Changing the Marriage Laws in Australia to Include Same Gender Relationships


by Wendy Rooke

October 2017

Firstly, the current plebiscite voting is about changing the Marriage Law to include same gender relationships, it is not a dispute about the rights and wrongs of lifestyle choices. However, the "Yes" vote campaigners seem determined to make it about j…

What Are Australians Really Being Asked in the Same Gender Marriage Question

The issue that is being discussed at the Federal Government level is something entirely different to what is being pushed through social media and those who are very aggressively campaigning for changes in support of the homosexual community in general .  Whilst a great many people already have an o…

Will There be Redemption for Those Engaging in Homosexual Relationships?

The churches of the world are divided on this question and I fail to understand why.  Our Christian forebears have been very clear on this question and for some extraordinary reason the churches of today with only few exceptions have failed in their primary message to those who seek to be redeemed b…

Presbyterian Church of Australia - Moderator-General John Wilson

“The General Assembly urges congregations to support the ‘No’ case in opposing the redefinition of marriage.” 

Without binding consciences, please read the following as a request from the PCA that when the government asks for your opinion that you consider supporting the “NO” vote.…

God Save the King - Is this a British Salutation?

I am still wading through the Books of Kings and similarly to finding a smiley (see previous post) I came across "God Save the King".  Now somewhere in the past I have registered that this saying was typically British going back into the previous millenniums.  But how wrong can some of these early p…

How Old Are Smileys - :)

To my great surprise I have just discovered that Smileys are not a new aberration of the social media world.  I was wading my way through the Books of Kings in the King James Version when behold, 2 Kings 7:13 has a smiley.  Perhaps not as appropriate as one might think, but none-the-less there it is…

The Book of Genesis is a Compilation of Ancient Song Lines

Having an understanding of the constructs that under-lie Song Lines that are commonly found in developed indigenous communities opens up the The Book of Genesis scripts to reveal some deeper truths buried in these early biblical chapters.

A recent study into the composition of the Hebrew Genesis …

The Continuing Hunt for (Non-Existent) Aliens

I am in no doubt why the general societal view thinks that there are aliens and monsters out there in the universe.  They have no way of knowing the real truth of the matter and we all are subject to waiting on media releases and research papers from Science to inform us of the truth.

But what i…

Should Christians embrace the research into human connections through DNA ?

Should Christians embrace the new genetic science of DNA research?  
“A good question” you may well say, “But what is its value when it comes to believing in God?”

Well the answer to that is – everything!   Yes I mean it is shaping up to be particularly relevant to biblical anthropogeny…

Alien Spacecraft at work - The Telegraph 10th March 2017

You might gather from the title that this has something to do with that baseless, factless and fictional idea that there are aliens under every cabbage plant.  Well apparently a decade ago Science detected (not discovered) fast radio bursts coming from deep space.  These bursts have a very short fre…

Believers are Still Confused About Genesis 1:26-27 and Genesis 2:7

I was inspired by an article that came through social media to pen a response to the question if Adam was a hermaphrodite prior to Eve coming forth.  That article tested the notion that Adam was both male and female, and when Eve was formed from Adam's rib the femininity of the female gender came ou…

The Story of Creation Revisited Through Ancient Song Lines has been Revised

We have undertaken a revision to our Library article "The Story of Creation Revisited Through Ancient Song Lines" to align it to recent discoveries in relation to the location of the Garden of Eden.  This is another example of where the ancient song lines handed down the generations from the time of…

Why is there still unbelief in the Garden of Eden

Thirty Four years ago Dr Zarins from Southwest Missouri State University discovered the location of the Garden of Eden.  Since that time many other scientists from their fields in Archaeology, Geology, Topography, Linguistics, Toponymy and Hydrology (to name only the main ones) have added their voic…

What Deity Do You Think You Are Worshipping at Christmas and Easter?

At first glance you might think this is a very dumb question.  Thirty years ago I would have defended my belief that of course we were worshipping the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob at Christmas and Easter but I would have added that the evils of the world had crept into these festivals and were try…

Heathen Festivals and Christian Celebrations

A friend of mine sent me a cartoon depicting a Santa Clause figure with a young lad on his knee who is asking this bearded old gent dressed in red with a funny hat “Where are you in the bible?”  This inspired me to want to write an article on the evils of allowing the commercialisation of religio…
