Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Aaron Masih sent me this link to a story written by Gene Edward Veith called Salty dogma where:

“Bono gives an explicit confession of being saved by Grace, not Karma.”

The article, itself, is a bit contrived. The author (is likely a Christian – so, like many Christians, she is giddy over some form of affirmation around Grace).

And, Bono’s position on faith is not recent news.  But, it remains refreshing, nonetheless, how clearly he articulates it.

However, it would be interesting to learn if Bono’s faith was the result of “feeling” it, or arguing himself to a logical conclusion.

As it turns out, I agree with everything he says.

But, did Christ rise from the dead to seal the deal?  Does that matter?

Can He be our saviour even if we don’t know He is risen?

If He did not rise, did it lessen everything else He has accomplished for the benefit of mankind over the last 2000 years?

It does not matter to me (at least not for the moment). Christ clearly changed the world. Because of what He taught and accomplished, the world continues to evolve in a better way (my opinion). I am grateful for His sacrifice (possibly eternally so). But, ironically, I believe the Christians would have Him leave me behind because I don’t know (or, at least just say I do in order to hedge my bet – like a lot of Christians).

For the moment I only have my faith in God, and hope.

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.
