Welcome to my blog about the reality of God. The more you think, the more you read, the more you write, the more logically coherent the concept of God seems to become. With an open mind and heart a life can be changed if truth is earnestly sought.

‘Faith and Reason are Dance Partners’

The mind needs to know, the heart needs to be touched

Religious leader: ‘We know that God has sent You to teach us. Your miraculous signs are proof of that’ Jesus replied: ‘Lest your heart is touched & changed, you can’t be part of God’ John 3-paraphrased. Arguments, proof, are not what change lives but His touch.

Tertius Venter

Tertius Venter had been in private practice as plastic and reconstructive surgeon in East London, South Africa, for 10 years when he signed up to serve on a Christian hospital ship for 10 days on the West Coast of Africa. Gripped by the love and reality of God, the intense poverty he saw and the desperate need of people sharing our world, his life changed forever. He was called to serve God fulltime and serves in different miniseries. Since 2006 Tertius has been a fulltime volunteer with the organizations Mercy Ships International, Operation Smile and The Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons to help relieve this enormous burden that destroys so many lives. These organizations reach out to the forgotten poor with a message of hope and healing, show them by word and action that each human life is valuable, important and certainly not forgotten.  While physical and spiritual healing takes place, dignity and self-respect is restored.

Apart from serving the poor with free surgical procedures, he has a ministry in the Red Light District of Amsterdam bringing the love of God to the girls trapped in prostitution.

And  a heart to bring the reality and love of God to the sceptic, the agnostic and the atheist.






Confronted with Suffering? Driving you to God or away from God?

Two people, from privileged backgrounds, went to Africa: one to Uganda, and one to The Gambia. Both were confronted with desperate situations of human poverty and human suffering. One could not reconcile such suffering with a loving God who would allow it, who would not do something about it (is He not omnipotent?) and lost …

One Author

The Bible is God inspired. Science God created. Our task is to figure out this oneness. Galileo Galilei (1564 – 1642). There are two sources of knowledge of knowing God. The Book of God’s Word and The Book of God’s Work. (Bible and Science) It is equally wrong and damaging for the religious fundamentalist to …
