Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

perhaps Jesus should be a bit more Noble

September6

I’ll begin this post by making it clear, front-and-center, that I don’t expect anything from God.

He’s already given me a fighting chance with that special gift of discernment. And, since many of you follow this Blog more often than not, you know my thoughts and gratitude for that.

And, considering just how big I suspect God is, I don’t see any point in offering up naught but unconditional love – anyway.

“P.S. Jesus is his own Dad.”

What happens if we find out God prefers that we stop focusing on the rules imposed by a particular religion, and work towards having a direct relationship with Him? Perhaps it’s Jesus (or, his promoters, are a more likely choice) that should be a bit more noble (his sacrifice /1, notwithstanding). And, by the way… As I have discussed on this Blog before (Christian Ambiguity Part II and Faith + Evidence = integrity, for example), I try, daily, to do good in this world with the idea an uncertain result might be it’s own reward. I hope that reflects and represents courage, in some form.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

1/ A reminder that, as a Heterodox, I don’t see the point in arguing against Jesus walking the earth. We can see daily that he makes a difference, still. But, I don’t know if he rose from the dead. If I did know, it would make life simpler, wouldn’t it? But, it would also require less courage on my part.

grey is never black or white – it comes down to truth and light

Obviously this video (or, “Vblog”), it’s production, and objectives, are somewhat, contrived. In my opinion, the whole some grey bloke collection is rather creative (and, admittedly, some times rude, in it’s hardly unique British way).

However, some times it’s alternative methods of delivery that just might help us make an extreme point.

A corollary (me thinks):

Have you ever been dumbfounded by zealous evangelical Christian rhetoric when you were simply seeking (what the Bible seems to imply is important) answers to beginners questions?

I have been picking on the besieged Democrats (you might possibly read: democrats and FAT farms, for example) quite a bit recently, so I need to balance things out a bit here.

Meanwhile, if you have a moment, listen to Grace by Jeff Buckley. It has naught to do with this post (or, it just might). But, why not? Then, finish your day, in a contemplative manner with his moving Hallelujah:

“it’s not somebody who’s seen the light”.

The difference between those ubiquitous tunes is quite stark, if you know how to look; black and white, if you will.

And… As we circle back to my attempts at making something of a point here, I offer the carefully measured consideration that we all come to conclusions in many a varied pace and path. I suppose it’s often what light might be available to see the path.

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.
