I was made in Chicago and born in Norway, so I was in America before I was borne. One of my brothers was also borne in Chicago and here is a picture of us on a visit to our mother’s mother, I am laying on the ground.
I grew up on a small form with view over the fjord, out on the ocean and to some islands and steep mountains behind. It was a big playground but with plenty of work. My father was a sailor and I became a fisherman, working on trawlers.
We were in the Lutheran Church and went also to smaller Christian congregations. I was thought to believe in Jesus and to call upon him as my savior and Lord and in this way may faith in him became personal. When I went to high-school, I came into free churches where there came messages in translation of “speaks in tongues” and I realized that Jesus answered my praying in this way. That he has continued to do later also, so I continue to pray to him, actually I talk with him.
I was also interested in mathematics and natural sciences, so I have studied mathematics, programming, physics, chemistry, biology, basic courses in geology and astronomy. Not very advanced, but I have a wide basement.
So there is something special with me, at the same time as I have been working as a fisherman and studied mathematics, programming and natural sciences, I have been talking with him who created it all.

Kvar ifrå fekk pietistane det pedagogiske slagordet: “Bryte barnets vilje”. Det synest som vi møte det igjen i postmodernistane si ulogiske tenking og i deira interesse av å bryte med den kvite mann og halde han utanfor.

Jesus leier oss inn til Guds kvile (1.Mos.2) i dag. Samtidig er det ei vandring som når Moses leia israelsfolket mot det lova landet. Då må vi sjå til at ingen vert liggande etter. Helst ikkje med kronisk utmattelsessyndrom heller.

Jesus er livets brød, vi må ete det, så vi får oppleve at det vert til ånd og liv for oss. I Heb.3-4 er det sagt at det gjenstår ein kviledag for Guds folk, vi er på veg til den kvila til samanlikning med jødane si vandring til […]

Menneska ber sine avgudar og trælkar under dei. Men den levande og sanne Gud har openberra si frelse for oss, ved at han vekte Kristus opp frå dei døde.

JOH 3,13 – JOH 3,21 Ingen har stige opp til himmelen utan han som steig ned frå himmelen; det er Menneskesonen, som er i himmelen.  [Menneskesonen: Yngre handskrifter har dette tillegget: som er i himmelen.] 14 Og liksom Moses lyfte opp ormen i øydemarka, såleis skal Menneskesonen lyftast […]
