Christian Ambiguity Part II

January13

Christians have it easy. They believe that if there is public proclamation that Christ rose from the dead therefore proving that God forgave them for all their sins, they go to heaven. So, all they have to do is play it along the Christian “party-line” and act generally civilized – and, they go to heaven. So, everyone tries to be good so they get a reward.

That may be faith. But, it might also be hypocrisy.

“Question with boldness even the existence of God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.” – Thomas Jefferson

What about the fellow that isn’t sure Christ was any thing but metaphorically the ‘Son of God’ (albeit a global change-agent)? If the ‘Believer’ in God, but not the Son’s rising still manages to treat people like Jesus taught us, without actually knowing or believing Christ rose from the dead – that is both courage and integrity.

“Even the Bravest of us rarely has courage for what he really knows….”.
Friedrich Nietzsche – Twilight of the Idols.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
