I trust that this site will be a resource for studies that confirm God's reality and the validity of the Bible; and help in explaining some of the gnatty little questions concerning God, the Bible and Christianity. Straight Talk about God is a non-threatening, friendly place to confirm God and build the confidence to act in trust of His word. Straight Talk is not affiliated with any denomination and generally shuns traditional Christian practices and doctrine. Straight Talk is founded on the teachings of Paul, along with those of Dr. Gene Scott. And MUCH independent study. Straight Talk about God is fulfilling Ephesians 4:12, which says that "the work of the ministry" is "the edifying of the body of Christ." In other words, as C S Lewis says, we're supposed to "show off God to each other." That's what this web site aims to do. Jesus told us that no one can come to God unless the Father "draws" him. If you're reading this, then you were "drawn" here and will most likely find the answer to a question that you have about God.
Faith is a verb.
Here's what I believe: Through the evidence of God's hand on the stage of history, His irrefutable creations and His working in my personal life, I gain the strength I need to overcome daily adversity, know His Word is forever settled in heaven, and that He will stand by me.
Be sure to see Fifty Pieces, a book of essays on the practical side of the faith walk.
Listen to Straight Talk about God the first Sunday of every month from 9:30-10:30 a.m., Pacific (California, USA)Time. Jack deals with all the subjects on this web site plus topical issues confronting us such as the United Nations move toward One World Government, the coming Cashless Society, and more.

I thought it might be convenient to have a central place where additions to Straight Talk could be easily accessed. These pages are also in their respective categories, but this way you won't miss a new page because it's "buried" in a different place on the site. There's a lot of stuff on this site. I hope this "staging area" has been helpful. Thanks for trying it out. I'll rotate in any new pages as they fall out. And I guess the new links will stay for a few months, at least.
At The Speed Of Time
Are there mental "positions" for the passage of time? Do certain mindsets affect our perception of the passage of time? It's commonly expressed that the time goes by quickly. But I've noticed that the older a person gets, the more this is expressed. Back 50 years ago, I can't remember thinking about time in this way. It was never "suddenly" November, and what happened to July? That got me asking if there were certain circumstances that seemed to foster our feelings about the passage of time.
COMMENTARY ON THE ANTI-CHRIST
We are on the brink of the New World Order. This government will exceed the individual sovereignty of all nations; just as the European Union can dictate to the once sovereign nations of Europe.
I'd like to offer some insight into who may become the Anti-Christ. Deeper study into who may become the Anti-Christ will have to include the "chosen" people AND their God-given mission on the earth. Another important question: What will be the configuration of the armies at Armageddon? It's in the book!
YOU AREN'T REALLY YOU
God is a spirit. The devil is a spirit. The Angels are spirits. And You are a spirit. If You are a spirit, what is your body?
Your Self, your Spirit, You, manipulate energy to form a tool that allows You to experience the physical reality. That tool is your physical body. Your physical body is not You. This idea is nothing new. It's been taught since there were people. The point is not that your body, your brain, your mind is not You. The point is why we have bodies at all. Extending outward, the point is, why is there a physical reality?
ALSO FEATURED AT THE ARCHIVE: TRANSCRIPTIONS.
With the help of two Angels, this section of Straight Talk is up and running strong with some 51 transcriptions ready to read. There are ten programs in the Lost Tribes Series, twenty on the Illumninati and programs of various other subjects. The most rcent transcriptions are listed below in the Archive section.
Nine transcriptions of New World Order programs. These were broadcast as long ago as 1997. Interesting how the stuff we talked about is now in place.
Fifty Pieces Audio and PDF
Also now available is an audio version of Fifty Pieces, A Personal Walk of Faith. This version is held on one CD and is formatted in MP3. The individual pieces are separated into their own tracks. If your MP3 player lacks Fast Forward and Reverse, you won't have to start at the beginning of the book each time. There are 56 tracks altogether.
I have also transferred Fifty Pieces into PDF format. This is convenient for searching the text and for printing individual pieces.
NEW ADDITIONS TO THE STRAIGHT TALK ARCHIVE:
I've added a new section to the Archive. It's called Recent. It will contain the last ten to twenty programs. These programs will eventually rotate into the appropriate categories, but I will always leave the ten most recent programs in the section.
The last few were:
F.F.Bruce. Is the Bible true? Can we trust what it says? A guy named FF Bruce wrote a great little book in 1948 called The New Testament Documents Are they Reliable? Bruce's evidence is so accurate and there's so much of it, that it allows some people to claim that every jot and tittle of the Bible are true. Does it really have to be true? You bet it does. It's a basis for faithing. Without faithing, we're lost.
The Alabaster Box
We're studying the alabaster box today, continuing our investigation into giving. Believers need to know what God expects of them. Bottom line?" Jesus said, "Give your best." Any non-believers out there, we'll be done here in about an hour. You can read while you listen.
It looks like we've got a series going here on basic Christianity. We verified faithing as saving, then confirmed God's reality. Went on to the complete Jesus. And today, to start the new year off in the right direction, we'll zero it down to our individual Walk. It's all about giving. And we'll be taking Communion. You can read while you listen.
Times being what they are, I've been trying to confirm God and Christ so that some might have the courage to give God a try. He's the only way to real protection for the coming months and years. One can't really take up with God unless there exists a strong belief to found the action. Two times ago I reviewed faithing. Last time I discovered God's reality through an investigation of belief systems. This time, seeing that Christmas is coming up, I want to get into Jesus' reality and his real birth Day. Unlike Obama, we really know when Jesus was born. You can read while you listen. And here's a chart listing the names in Pagan Mythology.
On Highest Authority - News.
Things are coming to a head pretty fast. We need to prepare spirituallyas well as physically. How solid are you in your belief of God? What do you have that proves He even exists? Time to focus on God. We'll investigate the authority of Christianity compared to other systems. I also want to bring you a couple important recent news developments. You can read while you listen
Gifts Charity Endtimes
A little Bible study on the words "Gifts", as in gifts of the Spirit. Then "charity", as outlined by Paul. And a look at the end of the world. Well, a look at the end times anyway, and comparing it to today's news. You can read while you listen.
