It Is Not About You
I guess the first pages in Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Life" shocked a lot people. He was saying in effect that the purpose of my life is not found in me but in something outside of me. Those thinking along the "I-me-mine" tracks would find that surprising. But Rick Warren's main contention is... Sign in to see full entry.

Spirituality and Economy
Here are some comments posted at my blog about The Rich Man and Lazarus. My responses are in blue: Hey, this is funny... If you rearrange the letters in SACRED, it spells, SCARED. "With fear and trembling" and such. Posted by You-look-fabulous on September 28, 2004 at 3:15 AM ( permalink ) That is... Sign in to see full entry.

Make2Short's Series On Community
In The Bumpy Road of an Unconventional Christian, Make2Short has just started a series on Community. Christianity after all is not a call to individuals to have faith as individuals. In fact, the Lord calls to discipleship in community. There is a call (a vocation) that leads to an assembly (a... Sign in to see full entry.

So Why Did God Create Hell?
In one of the blogs under "Bumpy Road of An Unconventional Christian" there was a post which ended with the question "So why did God create hell?" followed by the note "To be continued." I supposed the next blog would be about the unanswered question, but it was not. But the question IS interesting.... Sign in to see full entry.

More On The Paranormal
I am as a rule skeptical when people talk to me about the paranormal. But there are cases that scream out to me for recognition. How about psychic surgery? I know someone who is considered by professional doctors as a psychic surgeon. If not for this title conferred upon her, she would still be... Sign in to see full entry.

Paranormal Phenomena? None For Me, Thank You.
I read one of MariAntonia's posts on the paranormal earlier and it intrigued me. In one of my comments to her post, I told her that though my training has made me "blind" to paranormal phenomenon, I have heard so many stories especially these past few days that I would like to share some of them....

What Will I Blog About Without Chris2303?
I just read Chris2303's "A Selection of Bloggers That Can Go To Hell." It is about a "selection" of bloggers (those at Blogit) and Chris's idea -- or should it be "conviction" -- that they'd all go to hell. While I hope, I won't be going there, I would certainly agree that all of us, in one way or... Sign in to see full entry.

ExStud2006's Defense Of A Depressive View of Life
I was just going through Dylan's blog called "An Intellectual Defense of a Depressive View of Life" and it just got me wondering: who objects to it? I guess if "Qoheleth" -- the most pessimistic book in the Bible there is -- is inspired book, so why can't Dylan's depressive world-view not have a... Sign in to see full entry.

Religion Is From Encounter -- A Reaction To Odysseus
In a recent post, Odysseus writes the following: we should ask ourselves whether or not the entity truly deserves to be worshiped. By “worship” I mean expressions of obedience, deference, abnormal respect, compulsive behavior, sacrificial rituals, creeds, and that sort of thing, as relayed to any... Sign in to see full entry.

I Definitely Agree!
Kooka_lives writes this in a recent blog: Question your beliefs. If you question them and see they are wrong, then you can change those beliefs and find something better for yourself. If you question them and do not see them as wrong, then you will have strengthened your beliefs and have a better... Sign in to see full entry.
