Jesus Better Than Nostradamus

Nostradamus is a semi-well known man who lived in the 1500's and made over 6000 predictions about the future, some of which have apparently come to pass. News media often sensationalize the things said by Nostradamus and it is claimed he predicted the fall of the twin towers on September 11, 2001. This is the wording of his prediction used to substantiate this claim.

In the year of the new century and nine months,
From the sky will come a great King of Terror…
The sky will burn at forty-five degrees.
Fire approaches the great new city…

The Line between Kenya and Somalia

According to statistics compiled by Operation World, Kenya is the nation in the world with the highest percentage of evangelical Christians. This is not to disparage other types of believers, but rather just to show that the majority of people in Kenya claim to love and follow God. If you count all forms of Christianity in this nation, then over 90% of people have faith in Christ in one way or another. It is also affecting the nation because the nation has one of the highest growth rates of GDP in Africa and is growing and doing well.

Grumbling and Complaining in Arabia

It's hot in Arabia. It doesn't take a genius to realise that.

Last year I was travelling and we stopped in Dubai, in the Arabian Peninsula for a day. As we pulled into the airport at about 12:00 midnight, we heard the pilot say "Welcome to Dubai, the temperature is 43 degress." Of course that was Celcius, or about 100 in the Old scale. In other words, it was very hot and that was at midnight. The next day we realised that its even hotter in the daytime.

7 Ways to Get Out of Jury Duty

The Title of this blog might well sound like this is going to be a humourous article. However that is not really the purpose of this page.

Today I received a summons from the courthouse in Rockhampton where we live to participate in jury duty for a whole month. There is little room to refuse such an "invitation" unless you would suffer financial hardship, or your employer cannot spare you.

The Booming Voice of God

One day I was under our church building fixing some pipes used to carry sound cables. They ran along the building and then up under the floor of the auditorium area so they could connect the front to the sound desk at the rear. Exactly at that moment a member of the church entered the building. It was an older timber building with a high ceiling that echoed (sounded great during singing) and perfect for what I did next. I cupped my voice to the pipe, which ran up into the building, and in the deepest voice I could muster said, "PAUL, THIS IS GOD SPEAKING."

How to Stop Your Old IPhone Getting Your Text (SMS) Messages

What happened to me recently was that I decided to give the Android phones a go, and upgraded from my iphone 4S to a Galaxy S4. (whats the go with the letter S) Then for a day or so after the change I noticed I wasn't really getting any text messages. A quick look on my old iphone which I had still on my desk, and there they all were.

It's strange you have to admit, that I have removed the SIM card from my phone, and it is still getting text messages. Here is the reason why.

How to Have a Green Website

Right about now all the comedians are saying, to look here, but that is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about having a website which is carbon neutral, environmentally friendly and the kind that neutralises all carbon emissions. What you are looking for is a website that doesn't cost the environment anything, and may in fact even be of benefit to the environment.
