‘Not only do we have many options on what to believe, we have many great, logical and scripturally based options as to what to believe. There is rarely, if ever, a single perfect belief on our planet. So when you get to that snag in your personal beliefs, you don’t have to jump to the polar opposite position. If you find an error in your version of Scripture, you don’t have to declare Scripture to be worthless. If you find that you doubt the complexities of God, you don’t have to become an atheist.
Faith and religion, as most things in life, do not always come down to a simple either-or conclusion — even though there are plenty of bumper stickers and sermons that would have you believe that.’
— The Hopeful Skeptic: Revisiting Christianity from the Outside (p. 164)
You can be skeptical and hopeful at the same time. You can believe and doubt. In fact, those two things — faith and doubt — tend to work together.” —
- Jason Boyett
I will give you this, my love, and I will not bargain or barter any longer. I will love you, as sure as He has loved me. I will discover what I can discover and though you remain a mystery, save God’s own knowledge, what I disclose of you I will keep in the warmest chamber of my heart, the very chamber where God has stowed Himself in me. And I will do this to my death, and to death it may bring me.
I will love you like God, because of God, mighted by the power of God. I will stop expecting your love, demanding you love, trading for your love, gaming for your love. I will simply love. I am giving myself to you, and tomorrow I will do it again. I suppose the clock itself will wear thin its time before I am ended at this altar of dying and dying again.
God risked Himself on me. I will risk myself on you. And together, we will learn to love, and perhaps then, and only then, understand this gravity that drew Him, unto us.” —Donald Miller, Blue Like Jazz (via ikisseddatinghello)
That’s how all blogs should start right.
Anywho, this blog will be dedicated to me sharing stuff i come across each day on the interwebs that i like.
Be it pics, other people’s posts, etc.
Just thought i needed an easier way to share stuff.
Hope you enjoy your stay!
