The Gospel

Don't learn the Gospel so you can blast it out like a cannon in the face of your opponent, but learn the Gospel, first so that you may live it - secondly, so that it may come from you like a pure fragrance, that draws others to you, and Christ through you.

Serenity Prayer

God, grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.

I'm going to start praying this daily.  I think anyone who believes in God, regardless of their creed can honestly benefit from doing the same.

Illicit Behavior

I've been thinking about this word, and it is a great word, because it does not exclusive to any religious, or non-religious group.   When you put it before a word like sex, or drugs, it can all of the sudden point out that there are wrong ways to use those two actions.
So, I would like know, what circumstances do you think sex or drugs should be illicit?

M-Theory Vs. Gospel Theory

Based on this article, it appears that the 5 perspectives of String Theory, while different are justified as all relevant by being brought together into M-Theory (Mother Theory).

Doesn't "Mother Church" look at the Four Gospels in the same way?

By the way, I'm not making this argument, I'm really just asking a question.

message to an Atheist

I don't know which teachings of Christ you hold to be good, but whichever those are, they are what Matthew refers to 6:33 in seeking "first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness."
If you suffer from hunger, then avoid doing committing evil. Do not murder, or steal from those who are suffering more than yourself.  I think that even those who hold Ahteistic views believe that it is better to die, than to treat others unjustly.
What I understand, is that if I hold to that standard of love, towards my fellow man, then I am pursuing the kingdom of God, and will hopefully be more worthy or Heaven when I die, even if I die from that hunger. Death is iminant for all of us, but if I die, avoiding evil through love, then I will live in eternal happiness.
The more we worry about these things, the more we will be tempted to do evil when we are deprived of material things. This verse is about putting things in perspective: What is truly important when times get tough? It is not saying that we need to stop working, or earning a living, or seeking justice when it is due to us. It says, "Do no worry."  It doesn't say, "Don't worry, be happy."
I think this is a difficult for everyone, when push come to shove, but I think there is a natural, situational wisdom to it.
