Half The World

The band, Rush, started a philosophical song, Half The World like this:

Half the world hates
What half the world does every day

This perfectly encapsulates our modern world. Still writhing from the supreme court decision that overturned Roe vs Wade, many are celebrating that some people are now restricted from abortion on demand while the other half the world is screaming about the loss of reproductive rights. I am not sure if we will ever have reconciliation over this matter. It is like many other matters in American politics. But as Christians, we should not be so focused on politics. We should rather talk about the sacrifice Christ gave to us when He redeemed up from all unrighteousness (Titus 2:14).

Never Again?

Seventy-six years ago, that portion of World War II that was fought in Europe closed with the Allied Forces’ invasion of Normandy and their relentless, though costly, march on Berlin. With the troops’ subsequent discovery of Hitler’s death camps, the world found itself face to face with genocide of colossal proportions: 11 million dead, more than six million of them Jews. To this unfathomable horror–and to the shocking news that some of the Christian community of Germany was complicit—the vow was voiced around the globe, “Never again!”

A Life Without Fault

For non-believers in the world, the greatest argument against the Christian life is the regular hypocrisy among Christians.  Of course, we are not perfect people, and the Christian life is certainly one of struggle.

Truth is best defined as "fidelity to a standard" meaning that something is true if it matches the object that it is defined by.  God commanded the Israelites to have honest measures to weigh out quantities of foods for payment or sacrifice. 

"Like Father Like Son" is a statement that we sometimes hear around our world today.  It is an unfair analogy and it unjustly hurts people whom are judged by a family member's conduct.  It happened to me in high school.  I, like my brother, played in various band courses but in my tenth grade year when my brother was a senior, he was not the favorite student of the band director. 

Release the Spirit

The Holy Spirit is undoubtedly the most misunderstood part of the Godhead.  We forget that He is a person, has specific roles in the life of the Christian, and even that He is working when we do not directly see his work.
