Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

with death and salvation its all or nothing

February20

Mark Pendleton sent me an email on Tuesday:

“It sounds like each of us is a unique expression of God… Maybe even of the person of God.  Sort of makes you wonder where He starts in us and we (our egos) end…Or vice versa… Hence the need to “die” to ourselves daily.”

maybe. who knows? but, evidently one of three things happens, in the end, as it were…

  • something magnificent, transforming, and probably unimaginable;
  • something awful and unimaginable; or,
  • nothing, which is almost impossible for us to imagine.

dying is rarely easy. in fact, it’s often painful. thats why so many pray they die in their sleep. have you ever seen someone die? it’s always awful. always.

then of course, the concept of an afterlife, and then God (buffered by Christ), to make sense of it was realized by the fear of death, and our own ego’s inability to surrender to the notion that perhaps the slide into darkness with our final breath is where it ultimately ends.

that is the ultimate terror.

the unimaginable.

or, maybe the prospect of death, our mortality, ignited our awarenesss of God.

so, the Bible requires an ultimate surrender leveraging our desperate hopes for salvation, which is another word for more options other than, nothing.

It’s literally, all-or-nothng.

so, I choose, all, and am hoping for, and working towards, the best.

peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

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.
