“The articles of this book are all jumbled up! I cannot make any sense of them!”

Well, that is a pretty accurate description since I am still writing the book. All of the articles will be posted without regard to their final position in the book.

Although I trust that each article will be beneficial to you, the reason that I am publishing them individually is to get your feedback.

  • Tell me if you take exception to the content.
  • Tell me if you find grammatical or spelling errors.
  • Tell me if it just does not make sense to you.
  • Debate the theological issues.
  • Give me an “Attaboy” if you feel that it is appropriate.

Comments of this nature will help me to read each article as an observer – rather than as a writer. For more information about helping me write, see the article, Help me write this book.

Although the purpose of posting these articles online is not (primarily) for your reading pleasure (but to get your feedback), as a convenience to assist you with a normalized reading experience, I will attempt to add links at the bottom of each article directing you to the most logical next article – but no promises! And, all organization of articles is open to future revision (so it may change). But, if you get lost, just return to the “List of Articles” (Home) page.

Some articles may be linked together in a “Series.” This grouping will help organize a concept that is larger than I wish to publish in a single article. The series widget in the sidebar will display the current list of series, and by clicking on a line, show you the articles included in that series. The widget at the top of each article in a series links to each of the other articles in that series. At the bottom of each article in a series are links to the previous and next article in that series.

I usually publish a notice of each new article on Facebook & Twitter to alert readers to the fact that a new article has been published. Also, you can subscribe via EMail (see the sidebar). But social media sites only display an excerpt and a link back to this site. It will be necessary to visit that link to read the article and comment.

Later, all the articles that have been posted here will be sorted, ordered and combined and necessary corrections made prior to final publication. Some of the posted articles may be eliminated from the final publication. This website is a collection point where all of the necessary articles are kept prior to the final assembly of the book.

Hopefully, with your assistance, the finished “Prophecy With a Pinch of Salt” will be a book that holds both interest and value for readers. Thank you for joining me on this journey!

Help Me Write

Help Me Write

Would you help me write this book?

The purpose of posting these articles online is not (primarily) for your reading pleasure. 😉  Although I trust that each article will be beneficial to you, the reason that I am publishing them is to get your feedback.

I would like for you to keep up with the development of this book and provide comments and constructive criticism. What I really need are some “beta testers” or “focus group members” to give me feedback on how each article “feels” from the reader’s perspective.

  • Tell me if you take exception to the content.
  • Tell me if you find grammatical or spelling errors.
  • Tell me if it just does not make sense to you.
  • Debate the theological issues.
  • Give me an “Attaboy” if you feel that it is appropriate.

Comments of this nature will help me to read each article as an observer – rather than as a writer. Hopefully, the finished product will be a book that holds both interest and value for the readers.

Benefits: Each time you comment on a section of the book, you will make the book better for all of us. I have not decided whether I will publish in paper and electronically or just electronically but I may put some price on the finished book. Anyone who helps will, at a minimum, get (upon request) a free copy of the finished e-book. No other financial offers are made.

DISAGREE? I understand that not everyone will agree with the concepts that I present. That is OK. We may disagree but we must respect each other – and the other person’s opinions. Whether you agree or disagree, I will be pleased to discuss these issues with you on this site. However, I will NOT be drawn into an argument over these matters. Questions posed on Facebook or other social media will generally be directed to the relative article here for discussion so that all comments will be kept together.

Please refrain from asking questions about the concepts which I have not yet discussed. This will keep the discussion more organized and logical. Instead, leave a comment relative to a particular article. In other words, just attach a comment to the article where the concept is mentioned. EXCEPTION: You are always welcome to make suggestions about topics that I may have not considered. Such comments probably should be added to this page.

To participate, you only need to add your comments to the bottom of an articles’ page. You will be asked for your real name (displayed) and a valid email address (not displayed to the public). You will also be required to respond to an email confirmation sent to you before your comment will be visible online.

Thank you in advance for your participation!
