Dec 15/2018

I have been buying/using Kindle more recently (because of ease of search), so i went back and entered all the Kindle books i have purchased in 2017 and 2018. [I will do earlier years later--just ran out of time today.]

Still working on a long piece (multipart) for a family member wanting/needing to rethink the evidence for/against supernaturalism and classical 'revealed' monotheism. Having to update my thinking with recent developments -- ALL OF WHICH point more and more clearly to 'a god' of staggering intellect, power, and heart-- Not getting to DO MUCH on it, though, due to staggering job workload this year...

Well, at least i got 90+ pages written/posted for the dear family friend. It is written for one of their friends who trusts Jesus, but has become convinced (by some youtube teacher?) that the OT YHWH is actually Satan, and that Jesus came to reveal the Father (who is NOT the OT YHWH, mostly). So, i had to go through the gospels and NT to find out if the authors truly rejected the OT YHWH, etc. The series is not complete (wont be for a while--i have to do something now for the family member) but the index of topic/questions (and links to the pieces) are at Was YHWH Satan?

I STILL have to finish a couple of pieces for a family member who is just starting to seriously work through the truth claims of the historic Judeo-Christian faith. [And now i have to add some research/writing for a dear family friend, who has a family member who is confused.] After these, I plan to dive back into the Apamea/Pliny/Cities article.

I AM making progress on the writing, it is just not complete enough to start posting (starting with 'friend', then 'family', then Apamea....)

  • Bought a couple of books.

  • Bought a couple of books.
  • Found two passages i had missed in the role of women in the relgious cult of ancient Israel (1 Chron 25.4-5; and Ex 15:20 -- i had used this last one in reference to Miriam, but did not comment on the role of the other women in that passage. In the 'historical data' sections (both pre-monarchy and United monarchy periods). In Women in the heart of God
