CSSF Blog Tour-WhereTheMapEnds.com Day 3

Jeff Gerke: The Man, The Myth, The Legend. Okay, I can't comment on any of them, but it sure has a nice ring to it :-)

As we continue the Blog Tour focused on Jeff Gerke's WhereTheMapeEnds.com I wanted to take a different route. Although I can't say I know Jeff personally, it would be very interesting to sit down and have a chat with him. Throughout his Jefferson Scott and WhereTheMapEnds.com websites, I have found multiple times of being caught off guard and amazed that somebody actually thinks like me. Which I might say, I don't know if that is good or bad. I know I don't think like most people and especially like most Christians, so if Jeff has similar thoughts as I do, then yikes! But I could very well be wrong and he is more down to earth than I would expect. I refer to down to earth as in having a strong focus on reality(or what we perceive as reality. Sorry, there I go again). I can see other's view on reality and I have many "what if" realities(interdimensional, etc...) And that does not even start to explain the many worlds I visit and the ideas I have that I could write as books. I unfortunately cannot explain my thought patterns more clearly. The Foundations of Hope Trilogy has dragons, walking lizard creatures, and more... My wife's comment once to somebody was, "Yeah, it is kind of scary to think all that is in his head." :-)

When I first came across similar ideas/views was in Jeff's article on UFO's.

To even take a look at such a topic in a Christian Community is pretty brave. UFOs probably rate even higher than the word "Fantasy" of topics to not mention in a Christian grouping. But all through the article it was like looking at myself in a mirror. So many questions I have brought up in the past and there they were in the article. I had missed his point about The End Times until this morning. The funny thing is I just mentioned to my wife a couple days ago is that "what if Christians have The Ends Times wrong". They had it wrong when Jesus came the first time, why couldn't Christians have it wrong when he comes again? Jeff puts down an idea(which I have thought of as well, yikes!) of something different.

Jeff has agreed to also be a beta tester for The Foundations of Hope Online game. I look forward to receiving his comments on the game.

As Becky mentioned in the comments area, Jeff has given the game and books some great exposure. Look for me on the list.

Well I have many chapters to finish. Until the next CSFF Blog Tour...

Good post, Leathel!

We really think alike? I think I find that as scary as you do! LOL.

Thanks for bringing up the UFO paper. I don't think anyone else on the blogtour has found that.

Jeff

I can only pull that from comments you have made throughout your websites. Nevertheless, I think it would be quite an interesting conversation if we ever had a chance to sit down and have a chat.

In my opinion, UFOs in the Bible are angles and are referred to as a cloud, fire, star, etc.
