Our Government

I have been studying up on our system of government. Based on the Westminster system with it’s 3 separate groups running checks and balances on each other. It’s quite a clever way of avoiding corruption really. We permit an opposition which “keeps them honest”. If we want to replace it, it would have to be something really new and revolutionary. No good basing it on BC(before Christ) religions whose legal system is basically ‘an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth’


Born Again?

So what’s this born again thing, is it some weird thing made up by weird Christians? It comes from a conversation Jesus was having with a highly educated religious leader of the time asking basically how do you get to heaven? He replied that you have to be born of water (natural birth) and then again of the Spirit. By this he meant that you can’t learn or earn your way to heaven.


Holy Spirit

I just realised that the Holy Spirit is perfect. He knows when to hold back, when to comfort, when to counsel, when to have a joke and when to show his love. He’s always fair and balanced. It is hard to comprehend a perfect person let alone his desire to come and live with, or in, us but he has and does. What an enormous change he creates in us. He literally switches our Spirit on, the famous ‘born again’ experience.
