The Gods and the One Who is Not Challenged

Early on, the majority of those who confessed Jesus to be the Son of God, crucified and risen again, decided that there were no gods, that all the gods of the Pagans were either figments of their imagination or demons from hell, and that anyone was a heretic who acknowledged the existence of governing spirits of nature or other entities of that sort that were neither perfect angels who served before the face of God in Heaven and were His messengers to mankind or demons from hell who were nothing but evil.

Blogging and Writing Update

Hello, everyone!

I offer my apologies for my irregular posting. I know there are a lot of you who really look forward to my religious and philosophical thoughts on a lot of things, whether you agree with the greater half of what I have to say or simply find it interesting to see my thoughts on things. I wish I was better at posting regularly. I have half a dozen (it might be more like a full dozen) posts in mind that I really do want to write sometime and share with you all, but unfortunately I’ve been having a rather hard time with writing essays recently.

For anyone interested in my fiction, that is going as well as ever. I am writing three or four novels at a time right now, and I’m really enjoying it, and I’m also working on preparing Sorceress of the Dryads, sequel to Children of the Dryads, the novel I released last June, for publication. For those who enjoy the Kaarathlon Novels, I expect to release another sequel to Knights of the Promise sometime around the summer of 2022. The novel (The Wings of Healing) is written, but such large novels take more time to edit and proofcopy, and I just released The Three Scrolls this last spring.

I hope I will pull my head out of my novels and write an essay or two for you all this month. I have so many I really want to write, but somehow I’m currently much better at writing fiction than essays. If any of you want to check out my fiction, I regret to inform you that I don’t have any free stories from the Kaarathlon Universe available yet, but you can check out my Short Stories on my Resources and Favorites Page, and I have a novella from the Areaer Universe that you can get as a PDF here, or buy as a free ebook (available also in Paperback for those who want that).

As a teaser, here’s a few of the topics I have in mind:

The rejection of the gods by the Christians

Teaching vrs. Preaching, or the difference between setting oneself up as someone who knows and ought to be considered, if not outright believed, and simply sharing one’s thoughts as broadly as possible

Being freed from both guilt and merit
