Let me save you some time. I get frequent questions about my position on this or that. I don’t expect folks to care that much and I refuse to debate any of this, nor even bother to justify it unless I’m in the mood:

  • I’m not particularly pro-Muslim or pro-Arab, but I’m anti-Israel and anti-Dispensationalist.
  • Homosexuality is a sin but so is agitating a secular government to make it illegal.
  • Abortion is a sin, but the Bible says the mother is accountable to God first, and then her immediate blood kin. Agitating to make it illegal is evil.
  • I am not an activist of any stripe. No political party or special interest in any part of the Western world represents my politics. I am on record saying that I believe God says only ancient Hebrew style tribal government (Ancient Near Eastern feudalism) is proper for human life on this planet. Further, such is the government for which humans are hard-wired. No modern civil government and no modern political theory is right in God’s eyes, so all civil governments are illegitimate. It’s not my problem.
  • Church: Not a single sectarian Christian organization wants me involved in their work, so I don’t support any of them. I also don’t much care to criticize any of them unless they harass me. Do not associate me with any fundamentalist, evangelical, Protestant, Catholic or orthodox church of any brand. My Christian religion predates all of those.
  • I love the American people but they are under God’s wrath for an endless list of sins. The US government will be destroyed soon by God’s hand, so it won’t matter what I think of it. Still, God has called me to stay here for now and declare His prophetic word.
  • Entertainment: I don’t like any sports team of any kind anywhere, but I might read some reports of Oklahoma University and Oklahoma State University sporting events if it’s convenient. I hate TV and movies as a whole, though I occasionally watch carefully selected videos and sometimes the local news to keep an eye on natural disasters and dangerous weather — we get some bad stuff here.
  • My favorite color is orange. I love classical music, some country & western, and listen to a lot praise & worship.
  • Anything else you want to know?

    Are you the Ed Hurst who wrote “Laying the Axe to the Root”?

    Nope. I believe he’s in the UK; I’m US.

    You mentioned one of my political posts. I came by and saw your interesting blog. I have another blog that covers religion. This is a sample:

    Sheldrake’s Banned TED Talk – The Delusions of Scientism

    Another: Not sure which you would prefer as an introduction:

    Healing Is Two Way Communication.


  6. Ed Hurst says:

    Though it would appear we have some fundamental differences in our approach to spiritual matters, I’m hardly the kind of person to dissuade others from checking out the rest of your work. Thanks for alerting me (and my presumed readers) to your other blog.


  7. Steve McAmis says:

    Thanks, I enjoy your commentaries, I have read all of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and am now working through Daniel. I usually read a chapter then the commentary sometimes more than once for both. They cause me to think differently.


  8. Ed Hurst says:

    And thank you for telling me, Steve. More than anything else, I want you to find your own path of direct revelation from God, because He is not silent.


  9. Steve McAmis says:

    I understand what you mean but God gave you a gift to be a prolific writer to point us the right way to the truth. We can read every commentary ever written and still without the holy ghost to guide us to open our eyes we still will not see the truth. I like to watch PBS documentaries and because of my worldview due to my salvation I can see through them and see the truth, even though their so left leaning it’s amazing.


  10. Ed Hurst says:

    Exactly, Steve. You cannot trust what your mind alone can discern. We reshape our worldview through the convictions in our hearts.
