Seminary, Cemetery

by IR_Admin

pulpitThen spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples saying, “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat: All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not. For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers. But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

Time: Necessary or Contingent

by IR_Admin

If time is a necessary condition of the universe then time is a dimension. As it is a dimension it is subject to the same sorts of manipulation as matter and energy. Thus one’s future can be changed and one’s past can be relived and each of these conditions is dependent upon man’s capacity to manipulate that which “is.”

Idiotic

by IR_Admin

duncecapThe latest example I saw was Bill Maher, but there have been many others. Atheists like Bill use emotive “arguments” against the character of the God of the Bible in order to discredit the Bible and thus discredit God. They think they’re being intelligent, when in reality, the arguments are idiotic, laughable even.

I read a really interesting comment today. It was incredibly insightful and poignant. The comment was made by one horseman43, a nom de plume of one of the comment contributors to an article at a news site I was reading. He writes the following:

First shall be last

Supper being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him; Jesus knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from God, and went to God; He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. He poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded” (John 13:1-5).

Philosphy

by IR_Admin

It struck me as odd the other day when one of my students had to go look up what the word philosophy means. I stated that philosophy is the conjoining of two words, phileo and sophia, which separate mean “love” and “knowledge, wisdom.” I had written earlier in an article that the problem with today’s youth is a lack of fundamentals of thinking. I went on to say that this foundational problem is one of confusing emotions with values. In yet another article I espoused a belief in the connection between the feminism of society and it’s downfall. The two, I’m convinced, are connected. Applying emotions to circumstance in exchange of factually based reasoning is, particularly, a female trait.
