After 40 years I was back at my primary school in Somerset West where my daughter took part in an evening athletics event. I could hardly believe it, but one of my old teachers, Mr. Le Roux, was still there and was the starter for the evening. I walked over and introduced myself. With such a unique name as mine, he could still remember me. And his first words to me? “Are you still as naughty as you were then?” I found this remark by the teacher quite strange. Was that all that he could remember about me?Equals? Surely Not!

If, for example, the ancient Egyptians had, at the inception of their reign over Egypt, packaged a direly poisonous substance they regarded as holy, in a purely pagan sense of the word, into a stone container and buried it with their very first Pharaoh, expecting it to be magically transformed over the eons of time into a delicious un-poisonous food consumable by later Egyptian generations, what would actually be the end result? If, in the 21st Century, a pagan Egyptian were to unearth the stone container and sample what he regarded as a magically transformed poison, he would be sadly disappointed to find that the poison is as deadly now as it was the day it was anciently buried. Sin is basically the same, and does not change with time. What was anciently sin, and crimes resulting from that sin, are the same sin, and crimes resulting from that sin in the 21st Century. The old immorality today is certainly not a new morality, but only the old immorality being called a very devious and pernicious name. To taste of the old immorality today is as poisonous, and deadly, as it was anciently.Molding the Future

What is the status of an individual who walks away from his faith? Is there ever an opportunity to return from the Faith, or is he eternally lost?More Disproof Of The Existence Of God
It is not possible to absolutely prove that God (or any other deity for that matter of which there are thousands postulated) does not exist. Likewise it is not possible to absolutely prove that orbiting teapots, pixies, extraterrestrials, demons and ghosts don’t exist. However, the actual existence of God can be shown to be so unlikely as to be ‘proof’ beyond a reasonable doubt.
