Why won't they allow Same Sex Marriages?

Gay and Lesbian Marriages?  In fact all marriages including heterosexual marriages are allowed by The Grace of God. Enmity (differences) was only put between Adam and Eve and between Adam’s seed and Eve’s seed (so prior to them sinning they must have been of the same seed) and from then onwards required in sorrow and conception to bring forth children and live by the sweat of their brow as a punishment for being disobedient, NOT AS A REWARD.  It is not a breach of a commandment to be bound and faithful to your partner, it is only a sin to commit adultery or fornicate. If two people take up being together then “Let them be married”. If God’s will is such that he can say “let there be light” and there be light, then surely if he said “let them be married”, then they can be married. We are all God’s children (whether we believe it or not) and what father who’s child asks of him bread, would give them a stone?

Matt.18: 18-20 “Verily I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.  Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father, which is in heaven.  For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”

Marriage is after all not a Heavenly institution, but rather an earthly/worldly institution, Adam and Eve where husband and wife by the Grace of God (who on earth married them?).  Indeed the fact God allows any marriages at all is a sign of His Grace and Love and if two people feel so strongly as being part of each the other that they desire not to be separate, then let them be as one in marriage and considered one in flesh on earth and in Heaven.

Matt.22: 30 “For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.”

In praying “The Lord’s Prayer”, we pray “Our Farther which art in Heaven, Hallowed be thy name, thy Kingdom come, thy will be done in earth as it is in Heaven”.  If it is not God’s Will for ANYONE to marry in Heaven, then in fact we are praying for an end to all marriages on earth.  And then we pray “give us this day, our daily bread, and forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil”. Therein we are asking God to provide for us what we need, yet we are happy to deny others what they need (to be married). By disallowing a couple from being married (thereby becoming one flesh which cannot sin against itself), aren’t we guilty of causing them to live in sin and commit adultery? Who then is the greater sinner? Yet we go on to ask to be forgiven our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Please forgive anyone for accusing you of being hypocrites!

God Bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

Inspired by what took place whilst helping a Perfect Stranger.

People, who are of this world and not of God’s Kingdom, simply cannot comprehend, let alone understand how or why I do the things I do or behave in a manner altogether alien to them.  They think I am from another planet and technically I suppose they are right, for they are of this world and I am of another.  To a Disciple of Christ, it is so easy to identify the difference by what is sealed in their foreheads. Those of the world are the first to give advice (usually insistently and without being asked for it) and the last to listen to or take any advice.  Whereas those who are not of the world are they that first of all listen and offer advise when it is asked for or if discerned to be required.  Those of the world garner money and possessions around them like there’s on tomorrow, some will stop at nothing to acquire them, then zealously defend against their loss to the point of worrying themselves into an early grave.  The Abiding Christian however, is the last to ask for money or seek to acquire it and the first to give it away and think nothing of it.  Why would anyone sow seeds for a harvest in which they will not directly profit and only be remunerated for their time and efforts after they die?  The answer has to do with Abiding, Believing, Commitment, Devotion, Embodiment, Faith, Generosity, Healing, Integrity, Jesus-like, Karma, Love, Ministry, Nay, Obedience, Perseverance, Questioning, Reverence, Salvation, Truth, Unselfishness, Virtues, Willpower, X (an unknown, being anonymous, shouldering or bearing a cross), Yea and Zealousness.   Indeed a complete raft of reasons and the A to Z of Abiding in and being one with Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  When you work on the world’s time, you can work hard and long and be paid a King’s Ransome for your efforts, only for it all to be in vain and worthless to you in the end. When you work on God’s Time, there is no mad hurry as God has all the time in the world and the rewards are Priceless (of more value than can ever be imagined).

For my part, I would much rather be “Working On God’s Time”, than to be working on borrowed time.  Furthermore, God’s Savings Plan (Saving souls and Heavenly Rewards) is not at the mercy of Wall Street.

May God’s Blessing through Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be upon you all.

"MANKIND" a poem from the book "The Forgotten Foundling" by Christopher John Petersen

Adam has been split many times but when you put all the pieces of the puzzle back together, the answer still is one.

is what we need,
for kind men,
have no greed.

Brotherhood and equality,
will set us free,
this domineering dictators,
cannot see.

Peace of mind,
is yours to be got,
and many seek it,
for it means a lot.

for those who seek,
and do not find,
the Grail you seek,
is your mind.

Before you bring judgement,
and slander and curse,
think how you'd feel,
if the roles were reverse?

Discretion's the better part of valour,
of this you can be sure,
as the world's seen lots of fighting,
do we really need any more?

It takes two to tango,
consider carefully what you say,
and if agreement isn't reached,
then simply walk away.

Thor's the host of thunder,
"Adamsapple" the forbidden fruit,
also called the thoraxe,
be meek and keep it mute.

Individuals argue,
and fight unto the end,
let's all be singular plural,
and all be for A-MEN.

Life is but a riddle,
not meant in jest,
but merely to find out,
if we pass the test.

Love thy neighbours,
as you would have they you,
and forgivest thee they,
that know not what they do.

Love is like a flower,
the seeds of which we sow,
and if we're very careful,
we'll see it blossom and grow.

We're all each only fractions,
the sum of which is one,
let's all join hands together,
and see peace on Earth begun.
May God's Blessing be upon you all AMEN

Undying Love For A Love That Is Dying (complete) by Christopher John Petersen


The artist put himself to task,
to realise a dream;
and gathered up and set it so,
it did not show a seam.

with loving hands he polished it,
and when each piece was done;
he set it all in motion,
giving life to every one.

Then he put a keeper in it's midst,
and said "Watch over it";
then saw he needed company,
and so of his breast did knit.

then said "Come see what I've cast on,
from a stitch across your heart;
this stitch to remind both of you,
that you should never part".

Now looking upon his loving work,
behold it has been dashed;
for some have come along, and with
a tarnished brush have splashed;

With fond filled fancies,
of lavish meadows Green;
of shimmering Sunkissed dewdrops,
on countless blossoms sheen.

An array of fossils and footsteps,
of all pleasantries ever seen;
now memories locked in teardrops,
of all that once had been.

Mother Earth, once plump and fruitful,
laid waste by foolish schemes;
left in the hands of ignorant caretakers,
is now falling apart at the seams.

All the artist's beloved creations,
have all but come and went;
shall the Harvest Moon not bless our skies,
'til this beloved Earth is spent?

Despondent over desolate spaces,
we dream the poet's dream;
of living in tranquil places,
with peace on Earth serene.

To live in joyous frivolity,
with nothing to bring us down;
to look in all directions,
and nay have cause to frown.

May God help us to understand and respect all that is given us A-MEN

An Ode To Those Of The Harvest (complete) by Christopher John Petersen


In those God hath invested,
He shall not lose one;
who're understandingly prepared to take the plunge,
and do the bidding of His Son.

For they who believe in God's Word,
beyond a shadow of a doubt;
seek those lost in the wilderness, and help
them find the only way out.

Of they shall come an hundred, fifty
ten, or maybe just one;
gathering those that are lost, to the flock of Christ
God's only begotten Son.

For there is more rejoicing in Heaven,
to the gathering of these ones;
than for all of those that went not astray,
from the flock that these foundlings do come.

Because the mass of God increases, as one
joins the body of Christ;
and so all in Heaven celebrate, singing
praises of sheer delight.

Light comes not from darkness,
nor does darkness come from light;
if thou art filled with the Light that the Love of God brings,
thou art truly a blessed sight.

We are all, each out of sintax,
in err, way over our head;
when we repent and believe in Jesus Christ,
it's paid with the Blood that He shed.

CHRIST is God's only begotten Son, and
I to Jesus have truly come;
AN, another word for being one,
and so a CHRISTIAN I've become.

Finders keep us,
in our Lord Jesus;
Jesus keep us,
as your reapers.

My God through Jesus Christ save us all. A-MEN.

An extract from my poem "An Ode To Those Of The Harvest"

"CHRIST is God's only begotten Son, and
I to Jesus have truly come;
AN, another word for being one,
and so a CHRISTIAN I've become."


I "follow" Jesus Christ and in all his doctrines abide, if thou shouldst so desire that we should tarry together abiding and walking in the “Light of God’s Truth” on our journey, then God willing, let it be so.

Does the Government Really Care about us?

Although the Government tries to make out that they are genuinely concerned about it’s citizens well being, when you fully consider what they are doing and how they are going about it, then it becomes perfectly clear where their True Priorities lie.

Illegal Drugs of Dependence;

Is the government really concerned for the people who are dependant on illegal drugs? Or is their only real concern, controlling the spread of diseases through the use of shared needles by intravenous drug users etcetera? The government spends millions of dollars on Safe Injecting Rooms and supplying free needles to people dependent on Illegal Drugs to financially assist them in continuing their addiction. They also provide millions of dollars toward clinics that assist in rehabilitating people who are dependent on illegal drugs. They even go so far as to provide substitute drugs at no charge to help people to quit their addiction to illegal drugs of dependence. They also promote and encourage people from as early as school age that sex is a recreational activity, yet act soo surprised about the increase in the cases of HIV and other STD’s. What the government misses out on getting because they haven’t introduced a Tax on Sex, they more than makeup on the sales taxes of associated products.

Legal Drugs of Dependence;

If however you are unfortunate enough to have developed dependence to Legal Drugs such as Nicotine or Alcohol, the only thing you can expect the Government to do is to burden you with massive additional taxes. One could also add to this category gambling because the “rush” generated from the prospect of a big win is also addictive and through lack of self control can become a serious financial problem. Another dependence the government is now being lobbied to introduce a tax on is “comfort foods” and foods that contain excessive amounts of fats and/or sugar, which are associated with the development of obesity.

Hardly Equitable and Fair;

The most disparaging fact about this situation is that billions of dollars of government revenue is freely spent on rehabilitation/treatments for people dependent/addicted to illegal/illicit drugs (the sale of which contributes NIL REVENUE). Yet, if you are unfortunate enough to get hooked on Cigarettes, Alcohol, Gambling or Eating the wrong types of food(s), all of which generate 10’s of Billions of Dollars in Tax Revenue to the Government each year, the most you can expect from the Government to assist you in beating your dependence/addiction is Lip Service on a (supposed) “Help/Quit Line” and/or a “How To” brochure (Do It Yourself). The fact is that the Government doesn’t want to stop a person from being addicted to anything that generates additional tax revenue(s); they just want to stop a person from being addicted to anything that doesn’t generate additional revenue for them.

How could this be fixed?

If the Government seriously wanted to assist people who have a habitual addiction, then why are they not doing the following? Have the cost of treatment/rehabilitation covered 100% by Medicare and any required medication (quit smoking aids) listed on the PBS for those persons quitting under the supervision and assistance of their Doctor. A similar approach could also be taken for persons who are chronically over weight. Unfortunately, the Governments/public idealism cannot be afforded by those who are effected/addicted, because the treatments are more expensive than continuation of their addiction(s). Rather than embracing and assisting people to get over disorders/addictions; the general public and government shun and/or alienate people who are in the most need of their help.

Burning of the Qur’an/Coran/Koran by Terry Jones of “Dove World Outreach Center”.

Below is my response to the proposed Burning of the Qur’an/Coran/Koran by Terry Jones of “Dove World Outreach Center”.

German Jewish poet Heinrich Heine wrote in 1820-1821 "Where they burn books, they will also burn people." (more than 100 years before the Nazis)

Whether you add fire to the fuel or fuel to the fire, the result will be the same.

Pastor Terry Jones is beholding a speck in another religion way of seeing things, and behold there is a LOG in his own view.

"Woe unto the world because of offences! For it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!" Matthew 18:7

The only things holy about war/wars are the people who are killed in them.

Pastor Terry Jones, you are acting like a perfect example of the problem(s) in the world, which cause so much violence, resentment and hatred that leadeth to war(s).

Neither the Qur'an nor Christ encourages war, only religion, cults and sects. Only weak Gods need mere mortals to fight their battles. Oh ye of little faith!

In the sincere hope Pastor Terry Jones will reconsider signing a death warrant for those who are not guilty nor desire him to perform his juvenile prank.
People fear what they do not understand. Terry Jones should Fear Christ and his judgement to come, for he neither understands nor abides in Christ and his teachings. His intentions are purely of an ANTICHRIST.

How many Independents does it take to change a light bulb?

Well today’s LONG AWAITED decision of the Three/Two Amigos comes as little surprise to anybody that can see the big picture (the self serving interests of the Two Amigos).

It was always clear that they where only interested in siding with the party that could best guarantee that they could rule the roost for a full term of three years. Only the ALP could give them that, because if they went with the Coalition, come July 2011 the incoming Senate could most likely cause a trigger for a Double Dissolution of Government and an early election and a premature end to their newly gifted powers.

They have decided to Dance with the Devil on an Emissions Trading Scheme, a Mining Super Profits Tax (which the Greens have said they want to be 50% not 30%) and a National Broadband Network with an “open ended budget” just to name a few. Rather than supporting the TRUE NATIONAL INTERESTS and siding with the party that won the most primary votes, the most on 2pp and the most seats in the house.

The only true reason they strung out announcing their choice was “to make it look like they had agonised and lost sleep over coming to their decision”. At least Bob Katter had the courage of his convictions and didn't sell-out to the highest bidder.

The Legend, involving a Prince & Princess (names suppressed to protect their identities).

The Legend
The Prince, his Stallion
The Princess and her Filly.


It is from times long since past, times before the written documentation of events, from a bye-gone era where myths and legends were born and upon those myths and legends that time honoured traditions have been established.

To tell of this Legend, we must travel far, far back in time.

If you would like to take the journey click here.
