Teaching to Think

This blog is called A Teacher’s Blog. This makes it necessary to tell you what I mean when I use the word teacher. Most people see a teacher as a person that defines doctrine and gets you to believe it, be it math or theology.

I do not want to persuade you of anything. I want to get you to think and search on your own. Like Martin Buber, “I push open the window and point outside. I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue.” read more

A colorful View

You are the light of the world. Matt 5:14

Jesus called himself the light of the world. (John 8:12). The word used for world here is cosmos. Cosmos does not depict the physical world – only – but the order of the universe.

Jesus is not a physical source of light such as a lamp in this world, at least not in this time. We see in Revelation that there will be no sun nor moon as God is their light. The spiritual light broke through into our dimensions. read more

My true Self

I don’t understand my own behavior—I don’t do what I want to do; instead, I do the very thing I hate! … But if I am doing what “the real me” doesn’t want, it is no longer “the real me” doing it but the sin housed inside me. Romans 7: 15.20 read more

There are two major ways to translate the Hebrew of this verse. And most translations favour one of them. read more

About Me

I have to tell it again and again: I have no doctrine. I only point out something. I point out reality, I point out something in reality which has not or too little been seen. I take him who listens to me at his hand and lead him to the window. I push open the window and point outside. I have no doctrine, I carry on a dialogue. Martin Buber read more

Start here

My covenant with Levi was to give life and peace. I kept my covenant with him, and he honored me. He stood in reverent awe before me. He taught the truth and did not lie. He walked with me in peace and uprightness. He kept many out of the ditch, kept them on the road. It’s the job of priests to teach the truth. People are supposed to look to them for guidance. The priest is the messenger of God. Mal 2:5-7 read more
