Repost – Beware Those Who Do Not Care for They Care Too Much.

When it comes to those in Apologetics we wrongfully assume who are our greatest opponents are. We think often that where there is smoke there is fire, but the greatest need is not against those who thunder but against those who are quiet. There are more of them and it is the quiet ones who really change the world. The loud ones just take the credit.

So it all comes down to this choice as written by Pascal: Either we worship God, hate him, or live in indifference. We often focus our energy on those who yell form the mountain tops that God does not exist and that they hate him. Those people we can have dialog with. We admire their bravery to live that way and even through they cannot live consistently in their view they at least have a basis for that belief.

It is the people who do not care that are the ones that form the majority of society. They are the ones who shape the culture. They are the ones who live in indifference but are the ones who live in a true contradiction. (more…)

Repost – Changing God’s Diaper

Notice how we only see the Baby’s smile

It’s that season again.  It nearing the end of the year, the time of Christmas. This is the season of gifts, stress, mad shopping, trees, decorations, simple tunes, family, red rider BB guns, and celebrations.  What happens the day after Christmas? Life goes on. (more…)

Comparative Emotions

When one gazes into the face of God one sees a kind compassionate loving figure of divine justice.  One sees a perfect complex individual.  We see Christ moved by compassion then a while later in a righteous fury turning over the cheaters behind the change tables.

Now here’s the dilemma.  This God us either too good to be true or perfect enough to be good.  (more…)

A Matter of Taste or Truth?

Gregory Kockl wrote in this article (Religious Stew):

“Many people think of God like they think of ice cream, not like they think of insulin. In other words, they choose religious views according to their tastes, not according to what is true. The question of truth hardly even comes up in the conversation.”

People often see religion as a taste contest like this:

When in reality it ought to be more on the lines of medicine – not by taste but by what is true.

Said another way (here)

“When choosing ice cream, you can choose what you like..

When choosing medicine, you must choose what heals.

When choosing ice cream you can choose what’s true for you.

When choosing medicine you must choose what’s true.

There is significant confusion on this point.  Americans think of God, religion, and morals like ice cream and not like insulin.  They choose religious views according to tastes, according to what they prefer rather than according to what’s true.

The search of Truth is not contingent on what is a personal taste but what is True.  The difference between objective and subjective is becoming subjective – know the difference.
