Random Thoughts

The pop-Christian saying, "You don't know my heart" runs aground when you consider that "out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks." It breaks upon the reef when you hear, "by their fruits you shall know them."

The best profiler is not the man who sees what is inside another's head, but the man who has an intimate knowledge of his own mind.

To be asked by a theonomist to provide "chapter and verse" to show that it is wrong to attack a person's character instead of their ideas, suggests they may have missed the essence of the very Law they cherish.

Friends don't let friends use logical fallacy. If your position is a lie, it will be uncovered; if your position is the truth, it will defend itself.

If the grass on the other side of the fence is greener, invest in some irrigation. Anything in life worth having requires work, and your rewards are directly proportionate to the effort you put in.
Want a good marriage? Work at it.
Want to be complimented on how well behaved your children are? Work on disciple-ing them.
Want a good job? Work for it.

The paradox of our time is that we are more connected, yet more cut off.

When you apply the economic law of supply and demand to society at large, you begin to see that any chance we have of salvaging what is left, must be done by reaching individuals at a street level, rather than approaching things top-down. A morally righteous populous will demand a morally righteous government; A morally corrupt people will never make the same demand.
