About

Welcome to my blog. As of August 2019, this blog has been repurposed as a journal for bikepacking trips, technology rants and social commentary.

(contact me by email: jehurst@gmail.com -OR- br073n@outlook.com)

Most of the religion stuff is handled on my other blog.

It’s all about the message. It’s possible some of my work will entertain you, but that’s not the objective. I’m not much concerned about copyright and digital rights as commonly conceived in our world. If you read this stuff and it speaks to you, make it your own message. If you sense the need to use my particular string of words and my pictures, do so. If you do use my words and pictures, I want you to link to the source so people will know where you got them; they need the option of seeing for themselves if God speaks to them through this stuff, as well. If you make money from my words, God Himself would probably require you to make a donation to this blog. There’s a tab for donations, too. This is all about the message. It’s wholly unlikely I’ll come after you in any way.

Thanks for coming by.

Yours truly.

Yours truly.

    Thanks, Robert, but I can’t participate. Not only do I not see my work as all that versatile, but I don’t even know fifteen bloggers. 😀

    Dear Mr Hurst,
    I am Christian and a pensioner living in Cape Town, South Africa. I downloaded your book, “Not my Home” from the KOBO website.
    Here in Cape Town I have seen documentaries on a community TV station regarding the Shadow Government, the Bilderbergers, the CIA involvement in the collapsing of the Twin Towers, the “invention” of Al-Queda and some more. Many of them involving Alex Jones (http://www.infowars.com/)
    To see these topics in a book and “confirming” the various documentaries is refreshing and “can’t-put-down” reading. I really enjoyed reading your book. Keep up the good work.
    I am also a LINUX user, supporting the first South African to go into space, Mark Shuttleworth, who has invested in UBUNTU LINUX.
    God bless you. jOe faddell

    Hi, have been reading your blog for awhile and enjoyed it. How do you view Jeremiah 17:9?

    I suppose your question has to do with our emphasis on the heart-led way and the English translation of that passage suggesting the heart is the problem. I take the position that common English translations of this verse are misleading. The Hebrew language was never meant to be so precise as we make English out to be; context is everything. In this context, Jeremiah is condemning the fallen human nature, and speaks of the utter necessity of depending on God. In this context, it would be better to translate the Hebrew leb as human consciousness, or human will. Your will is self-destructive unless it’s centered on the Lord.

    I offer a longer explanation here>
