John traces unbelief to moral causes

It is now in the flow of my life span 9:20 PM Saturday night. I am down in the lower level where it is cold and dark. I came down here to lay in the dark and rest. It is too early to go to sleep so I decided to write in my blogs.

This afternoon besides wandering the house in a fog I read "Austerlitz" a novel by W. G. Sebald. I did read also a little from a book titled, "The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus Luke's account of God's unfolding plan" by Alan J. Thompson [New Studies In Biblical Theology].

Today while volunteering at the library used books store I had two people mention the name Joseph Campbell. I told these two people that at our recently Friends of the Library used books sale I had picked up these books by Joseph Campbell for our library-

"The Power Of Myth" by Joseph Campbell With Bill Moyers

"The Masks Of God: Primitive Mythology" by Joseph Campbell

"The Masks of God: Occidental Mythology" by Joseph Campbell

"The Masks of God: Creative Mythology" by Joseph Campbell

I have also in our library these two books one by Campbell and the other a biography-

"The Hero With A Thousand Faces" by Joseph Campbell

"A Fire in the Mind: The Life of Joseph Campbell" by Stephen and Robin Larsen

When I am volunteering at the library used books store I enjoy talking about books with the people who come into the store. Lately I have been bringing used books that I have bought at thrift stores or used books sale to place in the Herrick Public Library used books store. If I see someone at a lost what to buy I will mention one of the used books I have brought into the store. I also look at all the used books in the store to see what we have in case someone asks me for a certain author or subject matter.

Also when I am at the library book nook sometimes I have the opportunity to share my faith in Christ Jesus. I do not go out of my way to present Christianity, just bring it up when seeking to make known to people where I am coming from intellectually and spiritually. I do see myself as being a Christian evangelist. The Lord Jesus is my life. I have received by sovereign free grace the gift of eternal life. We read in the Gospel of John "Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him" John 6:27.

I looked at this evening a commentary on the Gospel of John titled, "The Gospel Of John: A Commentary" by Frederick Dale Bruner. I wanted to see what Dr. Bruner had to say on John 3:16-21.

Last year I bought a book on the Gospel of John titled, "Johannine Discipleship as a Covenant Relationship" by Rekha M. Chennattu that I need to read in the future. Right now I am seeking to read several books on the New Testament book The Acts of the Apostles.

Well I could write all night since I am in the mood to spill my beans. But there is always tomorrow to write. I seek in my blog for the cumulative effect. Over time I hope to communicate something meaningful.
