The Christian saint is happy because he has verily been cut off from the world; he is separate from things and is staring at them in astonishment. — G.K. Chesterton
People can be so mean and inconsiderate. It’s so difficult to be forgiving. Please mind another’s heart; forgiveness is a tear-filled battle.
Christianity even when watered down is hot enough to boil all modern society to rags. The mere minimum of the Church would be a deadly ultimatum to the world. — G.K. Chesterton on a pure church
Love is not blind; that is the last thing that it is. Love is bound; and the more it is bound the less it is blind. — G.K. Chesterton

I’ve had the wind knocked out of me in sparring class: it feels like getting punched in the soul every time. My immediate reaction isn’t to praise God, read the Bible, pray harder, read...

Why is the Old Testament so crazy? – Part Two →
In answer to biblical genocides, bloodbaths, and God’s vengeful wrath. Part One is here. The God of the Old Testament is a relentless war-monger, we’re told, evidenced by God making the earth swallow a bunch of people with different opinions, feeding the hungry poisonous quails, and killing two of Aaron’s sons (Moses’ nephews) when they messed up the worship service. The mainstream...
Why is the Old Testament so crazy? – Part One →
In answer to biblical genocides, bloodbaths, and God’s vengeful wrath. There are multiple disturbing passages in the Old Testament that many worthy men and women have tried to defend. Deuteronomy 2:32-36, 3:3-7, 7:2-6 describe the wholesale slaughter of entire cities including women, children, and their museums. In 1 Samuel 15, Samuel is disappointed that Saul did not completely wipe out...

At the park a random elder German man fed my dog his whole bottle of water and told me his life story. He’s an ex-government agent, was an ER paramedic, has seen the Pope drunk, and lost two million dollars recently on a bad investment. Thank God for cool strangers and new friends. His name: Mr. Z.
