A new book God blessed me to write…may our Lord and Savior; Jesus Christ bless and keep you.




Life on Planet X: Christ our Salvation is a raw and unconventional Christian literary work, which includes a compelling and suspenseful short story of vengeance. Christian themed essays and existential poetry are also incorporated into this unique book.

Life on Planet X: Christ our Salvation is a book for Christians, non-Christians and would-be murderers everywhere. Life on Planet X: Christ our Salvation exalts Jesus Christ as man’s only salvation from eternal condemnation, and the nothingness which confronts all of humanity.

Sherman examines a number of problems plaguing humanity, such as the desire to murder, and the world’s self destructive obsession with money and pleasure. The writings guide readers toward establishing a relationship with Jesus Christ, in order to free themselves from an empty pursuit of vanity, and a paralyzing fear of nothingness.

Sherman states that Jesus Christ is the way, truth and life, and we should all accept him as our Lord and Savior, and that we should always pray, keep faith in God, and never give up, no matter what we are facing.

Excerpt from Pestilence; Life on Planet X: Christ our Salvation (c) 2017

“Pressing the barrel of the 45 against his temple; squinting my eyes and slightly turning my head, expecting a splash of blood, flesh and possibly bone toward my face. Increasing the pressure on the trigger; my life was about to change…”

Beat It, by Michael Jackson is one of my favorite songs and music videos of all time.

You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare, they’ll kick you, then they’ll beat you, then they’ll tell you it’s fair. ~ Michael Jackson; Beat It (1982)

About a day ago, I was watching this music video. I was watching Michael and the boys dance, and I thought to myself…it is hard to believe he is dead. He looks so young, vital and strong in the video. I realize the video was made in 1982; however, because it was made in the City of Angels; my hometown, in areas I am very familiar with…the video seems new each time I watch it. Michael Jackson is dead, and he is either in heaven with the Lord, or he is burning in hell; it is my hope that he is in heaven. Michael Jackson had millions of adoring fans…he was alive one second and dead the next. He was a great singer and an innovative dancer. God blessed him with a combination of skills and talents which are rare and exceptional. He was the best singer and dancer I have ever seen. Once one dies, life on this planet is over, their creative days on this planet are over…it’s a wrap and there is no going back for a second take; may we use our free will wisely. May we seek God’s will to guide us in our choices. Life…how strange it is; one of the many reasons I am a Christian. Life is so unpredictable in many ways…a reason as to why I trust in the Lord. This life is about accepting Jesus Christ as one’s Lord and Savior and living for him, because none of us are going to live on this planet forever. In a 150 years none of us will be here anymore…each of us will either be in heaven or hell. I will be in heaven by the grace of God; I hope to see you there!

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Pacific Moon

Soft, wet skin; moonlight reflections in your hair

Coming in from a night swim

Tonight on the Pacific shore…

You look so different from the day before


Smiling at me…you fall on me

Resting your head softly on mine…softly on mine

Your wet hair ticking my head

Under the moon and stars we kiss…we kiss


Strong arms gently embrace you

Essence of a woman…you are…you are

Advantage taken of this you

Before transition arrives again


The you who values not time nor image

Is perfect for me…yet I know…I know

This you…will disappear as the dawn comes

Christ; the King of Prophets created you



I tell you…you work all your life like a dog Then you die…and for what? Or you get desperate… Do something malevolent for filthy lucre (money) And you either get killed or get sent to prison Thank God…Jesus Christ brings … Continue reading


All earthly things must come to an end…so is the case with; however, God willing a new project will premier soon. What is life…why do we exist? The universe, intellect, beauty, man, woman, pride, politics and money cannot save us…only God can save us…God created the universe, you, me and all of humanity. God is the reason we exist…submit your life to Jesus Christ. When God visits his wrath upon the earth, it will be swift and sudden…today is the day of salvation. One way or the other, sooner or later we all leave this planet. “Heavenly Father, I ask that you forgive me of my sins, and I sincerely accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, and I surrender my life to you…thank you for saving me…in the name of Jesus I pray…amen.”   




August 11, 2016 and I am pressing buttons on a keyboard, while staring at a digital screen. There is an attempt on my part, and a diligent one at that to avoid getting caught up in all of the madness, violence and chaos which seems to be on the rise in America and throughout this world, which is rapidly slipping into desolation.

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. I John 5:4 

Issues of state sponsored infanticide, racism, abuse of power by those who have some earthly authority, perversion, immorality, greed, illicit sex, corruption and incompetence in politics…and personal issues are all challenges to our faith and to following God’s will for our lives. Appropriately coping with such challenges is a difficult task. Even as a born again Christian this mortal existence remains both surreal and strange. God created you and I, and he placed us on earth at this particular time, for reasons perhaps he is only privy to.

I am born of God, and by God’s grace, love and mercy and with the help of the Holy Spirit I will overcome this world, despite all of the issues, madness and chaos which seems to characterize this temporal existence…with the help of God; I will prevail! Jesus Christ saved me from nothingness; or perhaps a fear of nothingness. Jesus Christ saved me from a meaningless existence of chasing after the approval of man and material resources. Jesus Christ saved me from eternal condemnation. I am not about to throw away my salvation and my personal relationship with Jesus Christ, because of issues and circumstances present within this temporal and mortal existence. This temporal existence ends for all of us, and heaven awaits those of us who continue to believe and trust in Jesus Christ.

The key to victory brothers and sisters is to simply keep faith in God…no matter what! No matter who or what comes and goes in our lives…it is vital that we keep our eyes on Jesus Christ; the Author and Finisher of our Faith.

May it never be said of you and I, that we lost faith in GOD and gave up. Keep the faith brothers and sisters and stay strong through the power of the Holy Spirit. God willing, I will have a new project debuting soon; a contributing reason as to why I have not posted anything since April 2016. Keep the faith. JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!

I remember April; I love her and her name, a very beautiful, kind and loving lady…we drifted apart…I hope she is well.    




Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Matthew 37-40


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.  He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

May our Lord and Savior; Jesus  Christ bless the memory of Prince; a great musician and singer.

May God bless you as well!



Knowledge of our own inevitable deaths

Who blocks it out?

Knowledge of our own inevitable deaths

We are aware

We shall not be here forever

No need to lay down roots

No need to get comfortable

We are not staying

We never stay until one day…until one day

After we leave…after we all go away and are graded by God

Then one way or the other…for better or for worse

We shall be home


(May Christ bless the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.)
