Does Jesus believe in God?

Taken from 

Does Jesus believe in your god, my god or our god?
Which version of God does he believe in or follow?
He didn’t seem to believe in the god of the Pharisees
He didn’t believe in the god of the Old Testament
He doesn’t believe in a patriarchal god or a dualistic god
He didn’t believe in a top-down god
He didn’t believe in a god out there
He didn’t believe in a distant or separate god
Would he believe in the God that many people worship today?

He appeared not to be interested in the finer aspects of the law
But moved people from an exterior code of conduct
To an internal consciousness and responsibility
He dumped dogma
He moved us from the be-liefs to the be-attitudes
He didn’t promote a god who is set apart
But a god who can be with me, in me, part of me
Be at-one with me

Christmas Poem by Benjamin

Making cards and wrapping gifts

Endless fun

Ring goes the bells

Riding their cars to the mall

Young people waiting for their parents to get their coffee or tea


Christ was born this day


Rest time

It's a merry time of year

See your family

Time goes fast on this day

Movie time

A time for giving

Santa comes


By Benjamin Philip Schonken (aged 8)

Fantastic Post Match Interview

Being tired of all the critism that he gets for speaking him mind, Brendan Venter tries a new approach.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
