Quote of the Day: Beauty and Evil

“When the people of the world all know beauty as beauty, there arises the recognition of ugliness. When they all know the good as good, there arises the recognition of evil.”

~Lao-tzu

The End Game

Here’s a question I’d love to see some response on: What’s your spiritual/religious end game?

What do I mean? Well, for example, some people’s end game will be “to get to heaven”. Others’ might be to save people. Yet others still may have an end game entirely different altogether.

So, what’s your end game…and perhaps more importantly, WHY?

What Do You Get From an Angry God?

Don Rogers on his blog Reflections has VERY insightful thoughts, like this one:

“An angry, vindictive God gives life to angry, vindictive religions, which in turn gives life to angry, vindictive people”

The Wrath of Your God, Not Mine

It makes me sad to hear people say things like, “God spared me from that tornado”.

Of course, the same statement can be applied to any disaster, natural or otherwise. Why does it make me sad? Because the implication is that “God” did NOT spare those people who lost their lives, homes, family, etc.

And so I pose some questions:
Can anything other than Good come from God?
If everything “came” from God, than everything is perfectly good, is it not (note that I’m not talking about morally “good”)?
Why would a perfectly “Good”, Loving, Accepting, etc God impart disaster?

Chaotic Beauty

It’s been a rough night in Nashville with all the super-cell storms and tornadoes around.

Luckily, there is always beauty in the chaos…for those who have the eye to see it. This photo proves, once again, that Chris Wage sure does!
