In Search of the Reason

Everything happens for a reason.  Or, does it?  Could it instead be that everything is what you make it?  Or, are both of these sayings true?  If both, can both sayings be applicable in relation to the same situation?  Is one of these sayings more Continue reading

Cursing God

A hammer to the thumb or a thumb in the eye, wrong is always bound to happen.  Wrong is a normal way of life.  Perhaps things going wrong in life is one of the most “normal” things.  Have you ever known anyone who Continue reading

Faith v. Works

Faith v. Works, it’s a case that has been on trial among Christians for centuries. Just like many wars, I suspect that some blindly follow its cause. Some followers don’t even know its origin or even what they’re fighting for after being so Continue reading

Recent debates and discursions have caused me to wonder how frequently and to what degree we interpret things how we want them to be (ideal) rather than how they ought to be (real).  No matter how varying our interpretations may be on Continue reading

Mere Prophet? Mere God?

If Jesus was just a mere prophet, then to which god was He a prophet?  Certainly, Jesus cannot even be a prophet to the Judeo-Christian God if he was indeed a mere prophet.  This is because Jesus didn’t claim to be a prophet – He claimed to be God.  However, Continue reading
