Revelation 17: Big Brother, The Beast Of Babylon

We are experiencing conspicuous fundamental, tectonic changes in our domestic Western societies. The gravitational core wildly spinning our current events like a whirling vortex is the quest to control Middle East oil, with the ultimate goal of world hegemony using diverse types of war as the means to this end. This is why we seem to have 50 shades of war and total disregard for international law as part of our daily lives. Have you ever wondered who is the driving force behind it all? It's not the ones we read or hear about in the media. We only are aware of the apparent discernible players: the US, UK and the Western Christian nations; the Muslim nations, both Shia and Sunni; and the Jewish state of Israel. Added to this piquant mix of Western proffered antagonists are Russia, China and Iran. Put it all together, and the Middle East looks ready to boil all over Damascus at any given moment.

Three Creations Of Life: A Bridge To Understanding, The Blind Man’s Elephant

Bare feet are wonderful things. And when school was out for the summer, my fifth grade feet never saw the inside of my cowhide insulators [aka shoes] until the first day of the new school year. Well, not at least without a lot of complaining to my parents anyway. Every tract house in our neighborhood had wonderful manicured, dark green lawns perfectly suited for running on with bare feet when the adults weren’t watching. Sometimes my parents would walk the neighborhood in the evening, usually two or three blocks over, checking out the competition, looking for ideas to make our front yard nicer.
