Valuing Faith, Family & Freedom in Central Virginia
I lived in Rockaway, New Jersey, a suburban community for most of my upbringing, from the age of 9 to 27, with a 4-year stint away at college. We lived on top of a hill, on a 1/3 acre lot. It became a common practice to go for walks around the block with my Dad after [...]
This is the second in a series of posts I hope to lay out demonstrating how I see the religious leaders in Christianity who preach/teach Sunday Sabbath, Christmas and Easter are using the sign/wonder of Christ’s birth & resurrection which has come to pass, to lure the people of God away from YHVH their God in order to serve other gods, which they have not known.
Before my family started keeping the seventh day Sabbath set apart, my understanding of a whole day was first there was morning, then afternoon, followed by evening and ending with night. In my mind the day had four parts: morning, afternoon, evening, and night; it always began in the morning and ended at night. However, [...]
“If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them.’ Thou shalt not hearken [...]

I’m finding that I might have made a mistake in not explaining our departure from church. I just spoke with someone who attended the same church we did for years, and they didn’t know why we left. She was surprised to hear that we were asked to leave. Let me first explain, my reason for [...]
Joshua said they hung the kings on a tree until evening, removed their bodies at sunset, placed large stone/rocks, which remain to this day…except for the stone that covered Jesus/Yeshua’s tomb was rolled away.
About a year or so ago, I started noticing when reading my Bible the Israelites were constantly being called to repent, to turn back to YHWH. They were continually being admonished for following after other gods or putting other gods in His face. I thought to myself, what is the deal here? Then I asked [...]
It has come to my attention that I might be offending people when I say “Read the Bible”, as if I was suggesting that people aren’t already reading their Bibles. If that is the case, I’m very sorry. One of the reasons why I continually say to read the Bible, is because I believe we [...]
