Once again I find myself side-tracked. I thought my next post would be in response to the first part of the Zeitgeist movie which purports to present evidence that there never was a real Jesus Christ – he is just another myth – and early records about him are not worth the parchment they were written on (or something to that effect). Looking into those early records I came upon the question:

Why didn’t Jesus write anything himself? Why rely on his followers and/or their scribes? Why leave it to his disciples with their faulty memories to spread the “good news?”

We know that Jesus wasn’t illiterate. He wrote on the sand.  He read in the temple:

And he stood up to read; and there was given to him the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where this was written: THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED. And he folded the scroll, and gave it back to the attendant, and sat down; and the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed upon him. And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” (Luke 4:16-21).

Jesus did not live in a time when everything worth remembering had to be in writing. The Jews learned by listening. Their few writings were tediously handwritten  on sheepskin and not widely available.  Moreover,  Jesus didn’t come with a brand new message. In Deuteronomy and in Exodus the Jews had already been given a set of commandments, variously arranged and numbered by various Christians:

I am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.
You shall have no other gods before Me…”
Do not make an image or any likeness of what is in the heavens above…”
Do not swear falsely by the name of the LORD…”
Observe the Sabbath day and keep it holy”
Honor your father and your mother…”
Do not murder”
Do not commit adultery.”
Do not steal.”
Do not bear false witness against your neighbor”
Do not covet your neighbor’s wife”

In Matthew 22 we read that a lawyer asked: “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “ ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’ [Deut. 6:5] This is the great and foremost commandment.”   “The second is like it, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.’ [Leviticus 19:18] On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets.”  His message was really quite simple.

Jesus came not to write something to read, but to be himself read. The taught by both his words and his life.  Remember, Jesus is the WORD, the very living Word of God. He came to preach and teach and by the time he died his followers must have heard the same thing over and over again, so they had it down pat. My research tells me that Matthew wrote in Hebrew, Mark wrote in Latin, Luke wrote in Greek. Christ spoke Aramaic and taught, at least some of the time, in Hebrew. Matthew had to translate much but not all of Christ’s words from Aramaic into Hebrew. Some of Christ’s words in Matthew’s Gospel were probably written just as Christ spoke them, in Hebrew. The four gospels are, therefore, often memories translated into another language. While they may be an accurate recording, they cannot be word-for-word.

Jesus didn’t really come to proclaim anything new but to fulfill the Old Testament prophecies, to teach, proving his divinity with accompanying signs and wonders, to start a church, and to “ransom the captives.”   Jesus says in Matthew 5:17:   Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to “fulfill”?

Jesus was not leaving everything up to his disciples. He promised to send the Holy Spirit:

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. — John 14:16.

But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, he will bear witness to me. But I have said these things to you, that when the hour comes you may remember that I told you of them. — John 15:26

No prophecy ever came by the impulse of man but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. — Peter1:21

Aquinas is said to have made much of Hebrews 10:16 and Jeremiah 31:33  in thinking about why Jesus didn’t write:

This is the covenant I will make…I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts.  I will be their God and they will be my people.  No longer will a man teach his neighbor or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest….

The fact that Jesus is not known to have written anything is not nearly the problem for Catholics as it is for sola scriptura Protestants who have no other foundation than scripture. The Catholic church also has tradition – what was believed and taught by the church fathers for centuries before the books of the bible were even discerned and assembled – as well as a 2000 years succession of infallible popes following Peter!

It begins to seem unimportant that Jesus didn’t write anything. His disciples were so on fire and spread the good news so effectively that for a long time most of Europe was known as Christendom. All the apostles except John, who was banished to the Greek island of Patmos, died a violent martyrdom. It is  believed with good reason that people are more likely to die for an experience than for an idea. They were really convinced that Jesus was the real thing.

YWFT on SCAM.COM writes:

What’s the point of having someone else write his biography, when an autobiography would have been far more convincing?

So why did he not leave some evidence of his existence? A lock of hair would be nice. Maybe a photograph? (he could do it, he was GOD after all.)

The obvious answer is…well…obvious, isn’t it?

YWFT thinks the obvious answer is that there really was no Jesus. To him I would only say –

You want a photograph? Take a good look at the Shroud of Turin?

You want a biography?   Read One Solitary Life.

What Jesus chose to do seems to have worked quite well.   (If there was a real Jesus, of course.)


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. – John 1:1

Bob DeMarco is a beautiful man.  I only met him yesterday on his website but already he is a person dear to my heart.  Bob lives in Delray FL  and  says, “I am an Alzheimer’s Caregiver. My mother Dorothy, now 93 years old, suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. We live our life one day at at time.”  His website, The Alzheimer’s Reading Room,  is called the number one blog on the internet for advice, insight, news, and information about Alzheimer’s disease, caregiving, and dementia.

Right off, you know that if Dotty is 93, her son is no spring chicken.(My prying makes him about 60.)    He, like all the rest of us, is learning in the school of experience, and he is willing to share that experience with us.  His mother is in the moderate to severe stage of Alzheimer’s dementia but can still read and do crossword puzzles.  She used to love to play the lottery every day but after Bob started buying the tickets for her (to save a daily trip to the store) he found she soon  became totally unable to buy her own ticket.  Moral:  Let Alzheimer patients do whatever they are able to do.  Once they forget, they will be unable to relearn it.

Apparently Bob moved to Delray in 2007 to care for his mother and the site is jam-packed with all sorts of trial-and-error experiences and helpful information such as  links to brain games, exercising with Nintendo Wii, the importance of exercise and the positive effect it has on his mother, and how he dealt with incontinence .  (“I can say this with some confidence — we no longer experience the flood. Now its more like the little tiny accident.”)    His technique requires getting Dotty to pee ten times a day and obviously needs a very dedicated, patient, full-time caregiver.  I like his humor.  His page on incontinence ends thus:  “Coming soon — the dreaded bladder infection makes my mother pee pee like a mad woman, how we licked the dreaded bowel movement problem, and who knows maybe I’ll publish the pee pee song I sing.”

Actually I found DeMarco’s  site when  looking for the new  Self-Administered Gerocognitive Examination (SAGE) test developed by the Ohio State University Medical Center  to help identify individuals with mild thinking and memory impairments at an early stage. The research shows four out of five people (80 percent) with mild cognitive impairment (MCI)  will be detected by this test.  It is a 15-minute handwritten test and of course Bob DeMarco has a link to it.     It can be self-administered or completed by the patient while in the doctor’s waiting room.

He also has a link to a new cognitive test, the TYM (“test your memory”), for the detection of Alzheimer’s disease designed and evaluated by researchers at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.  “The TYM detected 93% of patients with Alzheimer’s disease, while the mini-mental state examination detected only 52% of patients, suggesting that the TYM test is a much more sensitive tool for detecting mild Alzheimer’s disease.”

Perhaps his site is not actually the best Alzheimers site (I haven’t looked at every one of them) but when you have a intelligent, loving, well-intentioned, curious, patient caregiver, familiar with Pavlov’s dogs,  who can also write, the result is  likely to be pretty darn good.  Bob DeMarco has rounded up a wealth of material on the subject of Alzheimer’s disease.

Have you felt the swelling, the burning, within your chest as you come upon something beautiful? A landscape? a work of art? an act of heroism? a glimpse of truth? and you find yourself saying, “So beautiful! So beautiful! So beautiful!”?

The beauty of truth, the beauty of love, seems somehow a subject so holy that you dare not touch it lest you sully or tarnish it as when you pin down a butterfly trying to capture its loveliness. Sometimes only poetry seems to be the appropriate language.

Wordsworth came upon a scene which moved him –

My heart leaps up when I behold
A rainbow in the sky:
So was it when my life began;
So is it now I am a man;
So be it when I shall grow old,
Or let me die!

Sometimes beauty is seen with the inward eye –

When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze…..

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Edna St. Vincent Millay tells you that –

Euclid alone
Has looked on Beauty bare. Fortunate they
Who, though once only and then but far away,
Have heard her massive sandal set on stone.

You can imagine Euclid (or Einstein), as they first grasped some mathematical truth, saying, “Ah, yes, now I see – that’s how it is!”

I was not yet twenty when I came upon a copy of The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran and it so touched my heart that I copied out the whole chapter on love, part of which follows:

Love has no desire but to fulfill itself
But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires;
To melt and be like a running brook that sings it melody to the night
To know the pain of too much tenderness
To be wounded by you own understanding of love
And to bleed willingly and joyfully
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy
To return home at eventide with gratitude
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

And Jesus’ disciples said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”   (Luke 24:32)

Sir Walter Scott felt the love of homeland –

Breathes there the man with soul so dead
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burned,
As home his footsteps he hath turned
From wandering on a foreign strand!

Paul Anka (1959) had a heart that sang –

May your heart burn, swell, sing this day because you have encountered truth, beauty, love.


“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” – that is all
Ye know on earth and all ye need to know.
–——Keats, Ode on a Grecian Urn

My beloved grandson, who has a excellent brain, finds it difficult to understand how an intelligent woman like me can be so easily manipulated by conservative spinmeisters. He thinks that “Hannity, Beck, Pritchett couldn’t speak a single honest and accurate sentence if you paid them.” He was kind enough provide me with a link so I could watch the movie, Zeitgeist, and get another viewpoint. I did just that (twice, and then some) and I also watched the 2007 addendum. After a slow start in which we are told we need to know the truth because it will set us free it certainly held my attention.

Zeitgeist is a two hour movie, jam-packed with statements purporting to be facts, and dealing with its claims is not possible in a few blog posts. However, by way of a brief recap, the movie begins by telling us that the Jesus myth merely builds on ancient tales going back to the Egyptian Horus in 3000 BC and there actually never was a historical Jesus. It goes on to explain how the attack on the World Trade Towers on 9/11/2001 was an inside job and those two aircraft couldn’t possibly have brought down those three towers at free fall speed. Runs on banks were deliberately started in 1907, 1920, and 1929 in order to seize monetary control, and the Federal Reserve (“which is as federal as Federal Express”) is owned by international bankers and has usurped the government.

To gain more control, our gold was seized with the end of the gold standard in 1933. World War I was triggered by the planned sinking of the Lusitania. Pearl Harbor and Vietnam were basically wars which were wanted, planned, and prolonged for profit. We already have RFID chips in our new passports and will soon have them in our ID cards (if not implanted in our bodies) so every action we perform can be documented and if we get out of line we can be controlled by just turning off our chip. Then there’s the Amero in the future, the new currency for the North American Union, similar to Europe’s Euro! This, they say, is just another step toward a one world government.

I shall close this review of Zeitgeist with two quotes that appear toward the end:

We shall have world government whether or not we like it. The only question is whether it will be achieved by conquest or by consent.”
—— James Warburg to the U. S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations 1950.

We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.
——- David Rockefeller, Council on Foreign Relations.

This is just a taste of Zeitgeist, the movie. It’s not that we’ve never had a hint of any of these things before. We’ve heard it said that there are behind-the-scenes banking cartels ruling the world and that we ourselves took the Twin Towers down (Rosie O’Donnell comes to mind). But the marshaling of one “conspiracy theory” after another is impressive and worrying. At the end one can only think that if these things are true, if indeed there are people with so much power that they can start wars for their own gain, manipulate the media to keep the masses in the dark, control and use millions of unthinking, unsuspecting people, then we live in a world in which evil holds sway, there is no God,  and all is lost. Understandably determining the facts about all of these many frightening claims would be a job for a lifetime. I do not have the time or the energy or the money or the political clout to investigate, for example, just the claim that  Pearl Harbor was not a sneak attack but was a set-up arranged by international bankers in order to begin a profitable war with Japan.

I would urge everyone to watch  Zeitgeist just to see what some folks are thinking and saying. I do not intend at anytime soon to deal with its many shocking revelations or with the subsequent Zeitgeist movement.

It behooves me, however, as a Christian, to come to terms with the charge that the Jesus narrative is just the retelling of an old, old tale and there actually was no historical Jesus. My life, after all, revolves around this “myth.”  It should be coming up — in due time.

The following is a little clip from Zeitgeist — a tantalizer.


He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. — Micah 6:8

My grandma had a button box, my mother had a button box, I have a button box.  My grandchildren have never heard of a button box.  The generation in between, my children, may have seen my buttonbox but it is highly questionable that they have done more sewing than that required to replace a button.  There is a technique to a thing as simple as sewing on a button. They wouldn’t know how to begin to make  a buttonhole or an article of clothing out of whole cloth. They do not own a sewing machine.

Despite the fact that we were poor by most standards, my children  were raised in an affluent society in which people had so many clothes that they regularly discarded perfectly wearable apparel to make room for the latest fashions.  Though I was taught to sew, know how to use a pattern, make the sewing machine work, and have actually made quite a few clothes out of whole cloth, those talents were unnecessary when it became both cheaper and easier to buy ready made  “lightly-used” clothes at the thrift shop than to buy expensive new yard goods.

I looked at my button box today with a kind of sadness.   Back in the day, when an article of apparel was no longer wearable it was never just sent to Salvation Army.   If it could not be passed on to a younger child or another family, it was analyzed for usable parts.  It was an era of frugality, of waste-not, want-not.   Buttons and buckles were saved for possible use in another garment.  Zippers, too — in those days we knew how to sew in a zipper!  Good material could often be converted into a smaller garment, into a quilt, into pot holders, and finally, as a last resort, into rags.   You didn’t buy “wipes” at the store.   You had a ready supply of rags and as you used them you remembered when Mary wore that dress and you could recall the whole history of the material from fabric store to cleaning rag.   A quilt could tell the story of a whole family through the years.

Children used to find a button box intriguing.   Sometimes they liked to sort them into the various kinds, and decide which ones they liked best.  You could play games with buttons.  You could run a string through the two button holes, hold the ends of the string in each hand, twirl the button around, and make it hum as the string coiled and uncoiled and the button whirled and hummed.   Such a simple pleasure  – would it hold a child’s interest nowadays?

I still have a sewing machine.   Not that long ago I would have said of course I have a sewing machine.  Doesn’t every woman have one?   Eighty years ago my mother taught me how to use her treadle machine, to thread the needle, where to put the machine oil to keep it running smoothly.   The current machine is electric and does fancy stitching but even that  is now sort of a relic from another age.  Over the past year I have perhaps used it twice, to hem something or a sew up a seam that has come undone.

A button box, too, is a thing of yesteryear.  It remains on the shelf;  I am not yet ready to throw it out.  You never know when you will need a button.

I myself feel like a relic from yesteryear.  Still sitting on the shelf.   Waiting for what?

How could this happen?   The American College of Pediatricians (ACP) , which, as far as I know, is a not a religious organization, has come out with a website,, which says things that are true and useful about homosexuality.  Something must have gone wrong!

Well, something did go wrong.  Two years ago the American Psychological Association (APA) published Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth which contained  all the things that homosexuals want you to think about sexual orientation.  Now, by some miracle of truth and political incorrectness, the pediatricians actually respond on their website:

Amid debate in the medical and mental health fields concerning the causes and proper approaches to youth with non-heterosexual attractions, Facts is a non-political, non-religious channel presenting the most current facts on the subject. Facts is committed to advancing a school environment in which all students will experience the opportunity to achieve optimal health and safety, even in the midst of differing worldviews. Facts is intended to be a resource to promote the factual and respectful discussion of these potentially divisive issues. This is a web site for and about youth and their needs….

Adolescence is a time of upheaval and impermanence. Adolescents experience confusion about many things, including sexual orientation and gender identity, and they are particularly vulnerable to environmental influences…..

Rigorous studies demonstrate that most adolescents who initially experience same-sex attraction, or are sexually confused, no longer experience such attractions by age 25. In one study, as many as 26% of 12-year-olds reported being uncertain of their sexual orientation1, yet only 2-3% of adults actually identify themselves as homosexual.   Therefore, the majority of sexually-questioning youth ultimately adopt a heterosexual identity….

In light of these facts, it is clear that if school personnel encourage students to “come out as gay” and be “affirmed,” there is a serious risk of erroneously labeling students (who may merely be experiencing transient sexual confusion and/or engaging in sexual experimentation). Premature labeling may then lead some adolescents into harmful homosexual behaviors that they otherwise would not pursue….

The current media portrayal of gay and lesbian relationships is that they are as healthy, stable and loving as heterosexual marriages — or even more so.   Medical associations are promoting somewhat similar messages.   Sexual relationships between members of the same sex, however, expose gays, lesbians and bisexuals to extreme risks of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs), physical injuries, mental disorders and even a shortened life span. There are five major distinctions between gay and heterosexual relationships, with specific medical consequences.
Here is the page  listing the health risks of homosexuality.

For the sake of brevity, I have obviously compacted the site.

Finally, there is a page of rebuttals to the APA publication, which the ACP says “is biased and grossly misleading. Just the Facts omits critical facts and makes recommendations that are refuted by decades of scientific research and extensive clinical experience. Most alarmingly, the recommendations offered will place young people at increased risk of grave psychological, emotional, and physical harm.”

Just when you think all is lost, someone comes up with what we all really know in our guts!  Let’s give credit where credit is due.


God, as Truth, has been for me a treasure beyond price. May He be so to every one of us.  — Mohandas Gandhi

A few days ago I was struck by the headline in our local paper which said breast milk was “Like liquid gold” and I thought to myself, “How things have changed.” At the time that I nursed my babies, way back in the fifties and sixties, the swing was to bottle feeding. Bottle feeding was supposed to free mothers from being tied down to hungry babies, daddy could get up in the middle of the night and do “his part” in the feeding schedule, and you could see by the ounce markings on the bottle exactly how much the baby had taken. However, it soon became apparent that no amount of doctoring of cow’s milk (or goat or soy or whatever) could make it as good as mother’s milk.

When I learned that grandson Jason was expecting his first baby, the best thing I could think of to send for a shower gift to the mommy was the latest edition (7th) of The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, published by La Leche League.  It is now fifty years since the first edition (1958) in which I wrote a chapter on The Father’s Role, which has long since been replaced. The founding doctors and nursing mothers who started LLL have a permanent place in my heart. Theirs was a ministry of love and encouraging mothers to breastfeed their babies is still a ministry of love. As the cover of the current edition says, “Babies are born to be breastfed” Who in their right mind could doubt it?

As I browse through my third edition of The Womanly Art I find on page 71 the words of psychiatrist Dr. Marilyn Bonham: “The outflow of [a mother’s] love and affection for the very young child is pure gold in the bank.” I’ve written about breastfeeding before, not only the benefits to the baby but to the mother. The baby, of course, gets a made-to-order food that changes appropriately with the age, supplying exactly what is needed at each stage — colostrum for the newborn, antibodies to afford immunity, the special nutrients need for the rapid growth of a baby’s brain in early months. A breastfed baby is sweet smelling (with sweet-smelling stools), doesn’t become constipated, and the pros go on and on. Nursing helps the mother’s internal organs to quickly return to normal and you might say she is forced by nature to provide what both mother and child need most at this time – skin-to-skin closeness, face-to-face enjoyment, and the knowledge that to this one person she is all-in-all for the time being. This is the baby’s first experience of love and the importance of the bonding cannot be overestimated.

No person or group knows more about breastfeeding than La Leche League. Their book now reflects fifty years of nursing experience from thousands of mothers world-wide.

And a new study, just published in the American Journal of Pediatrics (see link) says that the lives of nearly 900 babies would be saved each year, along with billions of dollars, if 90 percent of U.S. women breast-fed their babies for the first six months of life.

Is there a baby shower coming up?

Because I have been fascinated by the Shroud of Turin for at least 50 years  (my first book on the subject was A Doctor at Calvary by Dr. Pierre Barbet – 1953)  I felt I should make note of the recently publicized 3D picture of the man on the shroud as shown on the History Channel in The Real Face of Jesus? The computer graphics expert, Ray Downing, who produced the image stated: “I have a lot of information about that face and my estimation is we’re pretty darn close to what this man looked like.”

The shroud is going on display this month for 40 days (April 10 to May 23) in St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Turin. The last time it was displayed was in 2000 for the Jubilee Year. Please see my previous post for further information about the shroud.

The Catholic church has not taken a position on the authenticity of the shroud.  Here is a video clip from the discussion about this new image of the man on the shroud from ABC news.

The entire documentary,  The Real Face of Jesus,  can be viewed on You Tube in nine segments.  This is a remarkably comprehensive overview of the known history of the shroud and all the scientific studies that have been done on it to date.    HE IS RISEN!

Just as many were astonished at you, My people, So His appearance was marred more than any man And His form more than the sons of men. — Isaiah 52:14

Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed, for as yet they did not know the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.  — John 20:8,9

And there He was
Splendid as the morning sun and fair
As only God is fair.
And they, confused with joy,
Knelt to adore
Seeing that He wore
Five crimson stars
He never had before.

No canticle at all was sung
None toned a psalm, or raised a greeting song,
A silent man alone
Of all that throng
Found tongue –
Not any other.
Close to His heart
When the embrace was done,
Old Joseph said,
“How is Your Mother,
How is Your Mother, Son?”

This is an extraordinarily revealing video by former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson. She explains why it is important to have pro-lifers praying and offering help outside the PP clinics, and what is going on in the heads of the clinic workers inside. In a particular clinic that she talks about, they are planning to do even later term abortions. She explains where their money comes from, why they locate in minority areas, and how they get women to make use of their facility. Awesome! God bless Abby Johnson and the people that take her words to heart.

It is doubtful that the people below, trying to save babies from abortion in New York City, have ever heard of Abby Johnson, but this slide show reveals the hearts of those who  try to save the lives of babies and help abortion-minded women by being out there, on the streets, praying and ready to help.


He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. — Matthew 25:45
