The Limits of God Part 5

In Part Four, I presented the Grand Deception that Satan is conducting in his assault on Job, and the Spectacular Risk that God is taking to engage in this incredible episode. Job is about to be taken to the next level of suffering, or should we say torture..... Part Five Satan Raises The Bet… God... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 4

The Book of Job, Read With New Eyes The Book of Job is widely dismissed, even by ministers and priests, as a parable or a myth. It is regarded like a fairy tale with a moral message. I think it tells us of a real clash between God and Satan, perhaps not word for word, but real. And I think Job was a... Sign in to see full entry.

The Limits of God Part 3

The Book of Exodus, Read With New Eyes Another interesting counterpoint, earlier in Hebrew history, would be God’s powerful actions to forcefully free the Hebrews from Egyptian slavery, in the Book of Exodus.

The Limits of God Part 2

.......... If you read the last post, you would recall that I discussed the extreme atrocities of both the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and the current attacks of ISIS upon the rest of the world.

The Age-Old Question of Violence... When, Where, Why?

All good people abhor violence. God abhors violence. Jesus abhorred violence. Almost every intellectual writer and religious prophet in history abhorred violence, with a few notable exceptions (see my other blog). But good people, and God, seem to be forced to engage in violence, throughout human... Sign in to see full entry.

The "We Need Evil" argument is completely wrong

You may not have seen the "we need evil" argument in philosophical literature, but I have. The recently departed famous poet Maya Angelou espoused this absurd view, for one. Some Christian teachers have a similar doctrine, that we must suffer at the hands of evil to grow as souls, that evil is a... Sign in to see full entry.

Defense, Defense, Defense

In the war against disease, doctors are our defense, but doctors reveal their weakness; their limits; by treating the symptoms of a disease, such as pain, rather than destroying the disease organism or condition itself, to truly cure the patient. In the war against Evil, God is our defense, but God... Sign in to see full entry.

The Philosophy of Falsehood

FOREWORD Do you watch the news on TV? I do, and sadly, it is quite obvious to an honest viewer that many or even most news stories contain lying and massive distortions of the truth, by commission or omission. Indeed, that is a prominent feature of most news stories ….. because it is a prominent... Sign in to see full entry.
