Mistakes

Why is it that we know that we can learn from mistakes, but we are so afraid to make them? A while ago I said something, so innocuous that I don’t even remember what statement I had made, but the reply to my statement…

Selfishness is NOT Spirituality

Be prepared for a rant.  I met this guy, actually introduced to this guy at a party.  The person who introduced us said, “You are both so spiritual you should talk.”  Well we exchanged pleasantries and then he asked me what spiritual tradition do…

What cause would you give your life for?

Interesting question, don’t you think?  Now we can all think of the grand heroic gestures in which we throw ourselves on a grenade to save our loved ones, or run into a burning building to pull a baby from the flames.  But what of…

Christians Have To Change Their Focus

Why do we need to change our focus?  Because we are supposed to be spreading the Good News yet people are leaving Christianity in droves.  Why?  God loves them unconditionally.  Why would anyone ever want to reject that?  Let’s look at some of the…
