Why am I not a boy?

Can you imagine that your husband abandoned you just because you gave birth to two girls? Can you imagine that your father has no interest in you because you are girl? Can you imagine a life growing up as eight years old girl, knowing that your father left you and your mother just because you are girl, not boy?

Bhagya Lakshmi has been living with the truth that her father left her, her sister and mother just because she is girl. It has made a huge impact on her. Her heart is already wounded. She has grown up witnessing the father’s physical abuse and accusations on her mother for not giving birth to boy. Bhagya Lakshmi and her mother used to cry for hours after her father gone out. Her father showed no interest at all to have girls. So he left girls and mother on the street and walked away.

The 'Coffs Harbour Cult'

Last night I watched 4 Corner's investigative program (ABC TV) highlighting a 'cult' in our own back yard of Coffs Harbour.

The program was called: 'Cult of Horrors' and features Scott Willliams and the pseudo 'church' he leads called 'Christian Assemblies International.'

It was disturbing viewing and also very uncomfortable viewing. I noted with sadness a few familiar faces along with a few familiar names. Brave people - hurt people - and victims of toxic Christianity (and no doubt, their own choices, to some degree).

We have posted links to this program and an ABC article on this page: Christian Fringe Groups.


Helping non-believers to know God.

Where do you start? The answer to that depends upon where a person is at.

People however, must earn the right to disbelieve. They must be challenged to give meaningful reasons for their disbelief rather than giving shallow answers like believing in God is like believing in the flying spaghetti monster or garden pixies.

John, his baptism, his mission.mp3

Who was John (the Baptist)?

Who was this man who, according to Mark... “wore clothing made of camel’s hair, with a leather belt around his waist, and … ate locusts and wild honey”?

What gave him the right to bypass the local Jewish Bible College professors and begin baptising the local citizens in the local river?

In fact, why was he baptising at all?

Who does he think he is?

Well ……that’s actually a very good question!  Let’s go and find out.
