85% of Aspies Are Unemployed… What A Crock!

Breaking Down The Myths About Deafness

On my post a while ago entitled “Life’s Lesson” I said there were ten things that I have learned in my life that I aim to put forward for your consumption here on RJsCorner. It is important to me and I kinda think it should be important to each of us that when we come across myths about living, we should do what we can to dispel the ones that are false. The three primary myths I have encountered that demand my personal attention are related to are deafness, autism, and old age. Of course, I am intimately familiar with … Continue reading Breaking Down The Myths About Deafness

Dispelling Myths vs Reimaging

Yesterday’s post was all about spin and how we too often try to reimage something because makes us uncomfortable.  It was primarily about the fact that we need to dispell the myth instead of just re-naming the condition.  Today I want to talk about why this topic is so important to me.

Some words of the Bible have infinitelyĀ more significance to our lives than othersā€” The words Ā through Jesusā€™ lips are the most important. Every other word is secondary at best. This is a major sticking point for some. … Continue reading My View Of The Bibleā€” Part 2 .. What I believe (conā€™t)

Early Church Historians…

The Future of Faith (Cox, Harvey) As we have seen, these early Christian ā€œhistoriansā€ were neither critical nor neutral. They were not even historians. They were churchmen who aspired to become the leaders of the next generation of Christians. They were anything but disinterested, and they had an agenda that was not particularly hidden. Looking for a potent way to establish their own authority, they seized upon a very compelling idea. A historian is supposed to be a person that is critical of stated history but remains neutral as to the results. Some of the early church Ā “historians” were as … Continue reading Early Church Historians…
