Rambling Thoughts

These entries contain thoughts I've mulled over for the last few years. You won't find systematic theology or first shots in debate wars. These are things that interest me. Maybe they might interest you too.

  1. Another whine.

    I am going to try very hard to make this statement neither a whine, nor a rant, nor a flounce. No doubt some here will see it as any or all of that. I just wanted to be clear why I find it very difficult to stay here. I am truly not sure whether I shall ever return. I know I've said it before so there's a chance I'll look ridiculous again. Who knows?

    I felt that Tweb had reached (in general) a more mature place where differences in spirituality (like mine) can not just be tolerated ...

  2. My Spiritual Journey

    My life has been a journey of ups and downs, mostly because we lived in a townhouse. I would like to share a little of my journey so that others may take comfort from the fact that no matter how far you wander from the right road, you still have to pay tax.

    I was born at a surprisingly early age which was convenient. In 1964 I joined the Beatles but they undid the ropes. How we laughed. Later that same year I celebrated my fifteenth birthday which was unusual given that I was 9. Mother ...

    Credo

    I was recently challenged by Stefcui in his usual subtle and diplomatic way:

    '...you don't have any knowledge to share, and you have no wisdom. You are just a snake who goes around searching for prey. An insidious, parasitic, obnoxious, pretentious, reptilian, scavenger snake. Did I forget anything? Oh, yeah... to use your quote... 'You're an idiot!' And you are here as part of an evolution conspiracy. You're an illuminati two-faced schizophrenic avenger with ...

  4. Flesh and Spirit

    Don't get freaky with me now. I know this is a huge theological area. I've written my share of essays on Galatians. These thoughts below are just an observation.

    How we love dualism. We like to pose qualities as opposites and measure where we fall on a line between. Sometimes it's useful. It's a way of thinking that has served us well: hot and cold, wet and dry, clean and dirty, the list goes on. The problem comes when we apply it where we shouldn't, where duality is NOT the primary ...

  5. Tearing down our idols

    Many Christian fundamentalists are vehemently, rabidly anti-catholic. Their main criticism is often idol worship. After all catholic churches have all those statues. Statues are idols, right? Guilty as charged. Of course this shows a complete misunderstanding of the role of image in catholic theology. But something more subtle is going on in the fundy's own backyard. Naturally fundies don't like to look at their own backyard. They'd have to mow it. They much prefer pointing out the flaws of others. ...
