the apostles creed

.         This seemed the right place for me to attest… The Apostles Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty,  Maker of Heaven and Earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, Our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried; he descended into Hades.
The third day he rose from the dead, he ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy catholic church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,  the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. AMEN

Gods patriarchs

Some time ago I spotted about a dozen books grouped together in a public library.  They were all looking for an ancient obelisk that had, reportedly got itself lost, most inconveniently, under sand dunes or under the dead sea.  Once this hidden decoding key was found, all the secrets of the Bible would be revealed & his kingdom come on earth etc, etc. I was stunned, that a group of educated & intelligent men could devote so much time & effort to this bizarre proposition.

The next day I had a working lunch in a Sydney pub. (as you do)
I pondered the issue… Y-H-W-H is a God bought forth by the Patriarchs.
Who were the Patriarchs… a group of grumpy old men off their times.
Who am I having lunch with today… a group of grumpy old men off my times.

If the Bible is the day to day living guide to mans concerns for all of time, is the hidden key that reveals its secrets; likely to be found in some ancient obelisk that got itself stupidly lost, or more likely to be found in the day to day concerns of responsible & decent living men in our times.

When I look at Abraham, Isaac & Jacob particularly, I find they were not so much learned men, as worldly men with many worldly responsibilities. They were not formally learned to a doctoral or professorial standard as is the office of Rabbi or Bishop. The sum of their worldly experience had led them to believe humanity needed to reform. They were worldly men who had come to cherish the most high God in their hearts. The spirit of God had come upon them. The spirit off the most high God of Israel, specifically. They were men in positions off influence from which they could initiate changes. As such they performed the role of Patrons or sponsors, rather than the role of Rabbi’s, Bishops or Professors.

Thus I am not called to the office of Minister, Priest or Bishop; I do not exercise the Great Commission on behalf of the Son.   Rather I find myself called to the role of Patriarch; one of the administrative offices which answers to the Father directly.

It is we the Patriarchs who first bought forth the most high God, & it is we who maintain oversight until the end of time.

If we have to come out of retirement to put it all back on course from time to time…


                                                      that’s what we do.
