In which I hang on and keep going

January 10, 2014

In which is thinking and thanking

January 29, 2013

I’ve been patently unsuccessful at writing posts since those 7 days with no sleep. But many of you have still visited and remained good bloggy friends – though I have failed. I think I’m turning a corner. But I’ve thought that way before. Still, it’s “I think I can, I think I can.” But as […]

In which is no proof

December 28, 2012

In which there is reason to do good

December 10, 2012

source So why do we do good instead of not good? During my discussions with the skeptic, which began here, he mentioned that the reason for doing good is reward in heaven. I don’t like the idea of doing good things for reward. I mean, there is reward in heaven, but it doesn’t seem like […]

In which I am at the top of the heap

December 2, 2012

source Once, when I was an arrogant man at the beginning of this whole Christian thing, I read these words of Paul and I didn’t get them.
