Middle aged lifelong student of history, politics, religion, and life. Happily married with 3 grown children. Enjoy simple pleasures such as music of all kinds, green grass, children laughing, good coffee, and the feel of a good horse under me during a quiet snowfall as the steam of his breath curls about his face.
I am continuously awed by the simple yet magnanimous touch of my wife, the gentle humor in the frolicking two day old calf worrying his mother, the fragility of the human spirit, and the resilience of the Earth. I have come to appreciate the honesty of Nature and Nature’s God, witnessing miracles every day of my life, not the least of which is Christ’s love and grace for a wretch like me.
In the last 3 decades spent studying Islam, Christianity, and respective scriptural writings I have developed a deep appreciation for language and the value of properly communicating ideas through written media. Speeches are great and preaching can motivate, but the written word is for posterity.
My Screen Name: “Ingrafted” refers to the Biblical position of a gentile believer.
Romans 11:17-24 speaks of the “wild olive branch” which is not fruit bearing, being graffed into the “good olive tree” (Israel) to become fruit bearing. It is allegory for the gentile believer being taken in as a spiritual beneficiary to spiritual Israel through Jesus Christ.
This became necessary for the Apostle Paul to clarify as there were many teachers who were teaching the heresy that the Church had replaced Israel, and claimed the blessings of God upon Israel (Jews) for themselves. This is known as “Replacement Theology” and is very much alive and well today. It feeds anti-Semitism in churches and politics throughout history and around the world. Israel and the Church are not one and the same.
The tagline “Discussing the Soul of America” reflects my desire to dispel myths about Religion concerning American history, the Bible, the Quran, and culture that have developed since the Secularization of American culture, which began in the early 20th Century and has left us a confused and fractured people. This has left America a breeding ground for the “Stealth Jihad” of Islamic supremists who believe that Allah has commission them to bring the Sharia to the entire Earth. If America can be taken from within, global domination of Islam will be at hand.
America must not fall…
