(4) Wisdom as a strange woman …

Continuing on our theme of "Folly to be wise ..". Wisdom is spoken of highly in the Bible, something to be sort after, something to be treasured.  A gift that will bring a person wealth and prosperity, but if ignored, or treated unkindly, or unjustly, could also turn on the person and cause them great … Continue reading (4) Wisdom as a strange woman …


(2) The dark side of Wisdom

The original title of this blog was "Wisdom as a bitch".  For those who have just dropped in, my premise is to examine Wisdom in Proverbs as female, wise and loving in the way that Jesus described his 'Father', not Joseph but God.  The chapters I am use specifically define wisdom as female.  Proverbs 1:20-33, … Continue reading (2) The dark side of Wisdom

Observing Genesis: The Tower of Babel and Faith

Who is God? .. or even ‘what is God’?

Observing Genesis: God and Adam, who created humanity?

God created Adam; we will ignore Lilith for the purpose of this discussion.  We know God created Adam, because he did it twice.  I have to wonder what was wrong with the first version.  That being said, I looked up Genesis and it reads “Let ‘us’ make humankind in our image, according to our likeness … Continue reading Observing Genesis: God and Adam, who created humanity?
