After our kayak trip on Kauai, we walked to this spot which apparently was a scene in Pirates of the Caribbean Fountain of Youth movie. I think I gave up watching the Pirates movies…I loved the first one, but after that – not so much. Maybe I’ll give them another try and see if I can spot this spot. It was green, luscious and almost like paradise there.
So, for today’s short Sunday sermon, I’ll share a little bit of what I learned about John Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost‘. I haven’t read the entire work…it was published in 1667 and consists of 10 books with over ten thousand lines of verse. Yet, I understand this seventeenth century poem corroborates some doctrines of the restored gospel such as the war in heaven, the creation, the fall of man, free agency, the atonement, the mission of the Son and subsequent apostasy, and the nature of the Godhead. Go HERE for a more detailed analysis.
I enjoyed reading up on John Milton. He was considered to be one of the greatest English poets of his time. Apparently he was also inspired to know and understand God’s truth. Have a terrific day! Do or learn something NEW!
