Apparition…

*

What was Abram’s experience?

*

If the story is to be believed…

Abram threw his face to the ground at the sight of ‘something’.

And when lifted from the ground by that thing,

he then veiled his eyes from it.

Furthermore, that thing could both speak to him

and hear his unspoken thoughts.

*

Is that enough?

*

If the story is to be believed…

It was enough for Abram to change both his and his wife’s name,

and when the impossible things that had been promised came to pass,

it was enough for him to do the bidding of that thing without question,

even though that bidding was anathema.

And that is faith!

A mine field…

Slivers of Sǿren

Testaments to Truth

Stuart France

In his relatively short literary career, Danish philosopher, Sǿren Kierkegaard, challenged the religious orthodoxy of his age with a series of exquisitely penned philosophical works which he placed before the reading public under a plethora of different aliases.

All these writings addressed the spiritual concerns of his age and, on a broader note, questioned just what it means to be human. Losing the ability to think for ourselves, and to question the decisions of a ruling elite, for Kierkegaard, was a prelude to surrendering our very freedom as a people.

Recognising alarming parallels with our own times, and taking Kierkegaard’s classic, Fear and Trembling as a start, author and essayist, Stuart France, heads straight to the heart of the Jewish and Christian spiritual traditions with this poetic foray into high ideas…

The quality of story is not strained.

The Western Mystery Tradition may never be the same again!

  1. Wow, what a powerful account! Incredible. Some of these things I honestly did not know, but I get the drift of it. Nothing is stranger than the way people can change from a string of events in their lives. Reading this gave me shivers. It is, although something very ancient and far, far away, at the same time current and reaching out into each life that encounters it.
