The Intelligent Christian
This is my personal website and, in due course (as they say in England), I will be adding some of my personal reflections on life, the universe and all that.
If you hover your mouse over words with a grey/blue background, a quotation or an explanation will pop up.
Try it on this:
John 3:16 (King James Version)
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
I have finally added a section where I get on my high horse (or soap box, if you prefer).
This section will provide ebooks for downloading (without cost).
Three things readers may want to know about me are that I am a Christian*, I have a very high IQ and I was born borderline autistic.
I am one of a global network of Christians who either belong to Mensa or qualify for membership, i.e. with IQs in the top two percent of the population (mine's in the top one percent). I live in England and I am a member of British Mensa. More information about Mensa can be found by going to the Links page via the navigation menu.
There is a bit about me in the About pages, but I intend the nuts and bolts of this website to be the Commentary section. Now retired (at least retired from working for others!), I am taking the opportunity to write down my reflections on life, the universe and all that, just as I threatened to do earlier!
My reflections are based on my experiences and observations over almost seven decades. I don't mince words and some visitors will be turned off by what I write.
However, while the old adage 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' remains a mouthful of truth, I am of the conviction that when things are broke we need to recognize that they are indeed broke and then roll up our sleeves and start fixing.
The My Views section will become my contribution towards fixing those things that are broke.
*I need to add an explanation to my use of the word 'Christian'. I use it with the same meaning we find in the New Testament (Acts 11:26Acts 11:26 (New International Version)
and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.
, Acts 16:28Acts 26:28 (New International Version)
Then Agrippa said to Paul, "Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?"
and 1 Peter 4:161 Peter 4:16 (New International Version)
However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name.
). In this context, the term 'Christian' may well have been a term of derision, not a badge of belonging to a culture. I will be expanding on this in the section I have begun building (but not yet posted) for The Intelligent Christian.
