I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

  • I like his definition. There are some who think they don’t or aren’t sinning unless they actively do something against the will or Word of God.  You are right…no neutral.  Good thoughts today sis. 

    • It’s a good book – with good imagery too (even though I am not that much into zombie stuff). I cannot wait for him to get to grace.

      Thanks for stopping by, big bro.

    Yes, in the New Testament the Greek word translated as “sin” derives from the idea of aiming an arrow at a mark and missing it (hamartia). There are other meanings as well, for example the “tragic flaw” in the protagonist in Greek tragedy.

    Maurice Nicoll, a writer and teacher, who has explored the teachings of the New Testament in a deeper way than I have seen from any other writer, wrote a book called “The Mark” in 1953. This and his other books seem to out of copyright as I have seen the texts freely available on the Internet. I have been reading his books for years and still learn something every time I read them. A man of genius, in my opinion.

    • Thanks for recommendation – I will try to check out his books (once I get done with the ones I am currently reading – I am trying to withstand the temptation to start something new before I finish other books).

    Some short reviews of the book on Amazon which I agree with. Reviews are simple and to the point. The book would not be for everybody, but for those who are seeking further understanding it is a gold mine.
