I do not have a clue how to put friends on this thing. I have a friend though that has a blog and he has an uncanny ability with words and to simplify profound things... here is his blog.
I was thinking this morning about a lot of different things. I will list them.
1. If God created time is he outside of time or part of time?
2. How can one be pro-life and pro-war?
3. Will I ever not be spiritually depressed?
The first thought was inspired by some old readings by St. Augustine, Philo the Founder and Anslem. All were Classical Theist. They all struggled with the view of time and how it related to God. It is interesting that it was a common practice in ancient time to apply zero compassion to the creator. They just considered God to be above compassion, these three dudes were the ones that began to reshape this Aristotalian and Platonistic view of things.
The second though baffels me more then the first. I am not outspoken enough but I need to say what is on my mind. I often struggle with what others think of me and i need to let go of this. I am pro-life, i do not believe in abortion. I think it is awful. However what i find so amazing in this country is that we have a Christian majority supporting the pro-life cause that also supports a war on innocent people taking place in the Middle East. Night in and night out innocent children get killed. blown to bits by bombs my tax dollars pay for. The documented civilian deaths by violence since the occupation of American Forces in Iraq is 78, 564... imagine that!!!! 9/11 almost monthly. Also this is documented.... think of the mass graves being found..... i do not understand it... We here in our modern church setting, with the expensive sound system and expensive crosses, church buildings everything...we just do not understand.... we have given up on the Gospel.....read your bibles.... just read them.... let them speak to you..... just read the Gospels, hell read the Old Testament.... God is a God of justice not murder...
