It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on Thinking Out Loud, so I thought I’d better catch you up on some of my writing.
So, here are some links to what I’ve written lately on Medium…
God revealed in the midst of humanity
Generally, we tend to not believe in what we can’t see.
Of course, this carries over to believing in God and the miraculous.
Many will say it’s not logical or rational to do so. And yet, we believe in the existence of many things invisible to the naked eye and miraculous in nature — thoughts, atoms, life in all its forms, and even feelings of love.
The reason it’s not logical to believe in God is that it doesn’t fit what we know in the natural world. This is our human dilemma. God is supernatural — He’s above and beyond the natural realm. He will never fit within the limits of our logic.
Locked memory loops
You lost in time remembered
Me lost in time now
Grief in bits… slow… sad
Watching talking listening
My mom passed away a month ago but this was written not too long ago.
We would sit on the porch while she drank her caramel-macchiato latte from Starbucks…just enjoying the beauty of the day and the outside porch. Even though dementia had washed away some thoughts and memories, it was a good time together.
The prophetic role of John the Baptizer
What makes a person a prophet of God?
Personality? Character? Their message?
Those may be indicators but there’s only one true requirement.
A calling from God.
I know people who consider themselves prophets and people others claim are prophets. But my question is often, is this God’s calling or a title they’ve taken on for themselves or that’s given them by others?
My reflection on a recent post
Reading a recent post on unconditional love got me thinking. Does the idea of unconditional love seem remote or unrealistic to most people? Does unconditional love exist in our world?
The short answer, for me, is yes. But perhaps this prompts another question—if an unconditional love exists, where can it be found and is it sustainable?
If an unconditional love exists, where is it found and is it sustainable?
5 Foundational Truths of the Christian Faith
It’s not always about you or me. When? Most of the time and with almost everything in life.
American and western culture might influence us to think differently but it’s true—especially true when it comes to the Christian faith. Though the popular trend in churches is to appeal to individual concerns, this is the opposite of what the Lord intended.
In a previous post, I pointed out that a general understanding of Christianity often revolves around moral goodness. Moral goodness in and of itself is certainly not bad but it is not the basis of genuine Christian faith.
