1. Some thought from my internet friend Jonny…
    It is 4:44 PM Thursday late afternoon. The day has gone by normal. Tim showed up here around 1 o’clock PM. We invited Tim to have lunch with us. So Tim and I did not go anywhere for coffee today, instead we stayed here and talked for three hours. Tim is basically the only person I really talk to…
     

  2. "Although it isn’t stated directly in the Bible, God seems to prefer a balance of evidence: there is enough reason to believe if we want to believe, but not enough to intellectually force belief against our will. Instead of overpowering us with undeniable logic or mighty miracles until we grudgingly give up and give in, God wants us to want to come to Him. With this balance there is authentic free will, and the choice is primarily made not by intellect, but by heart and will. A balance is also needed for developing the “living by faith” character so highly valued by God. In a world where it may seem justifiable to be intellectually agnostic, God wants a non-agnostic faith, a total spiritual commitment, a true repentance followed by a complete trust in God that is manifested in all thoughts and actions of daily living."
