The Problem with Science

"That's the problem with science. You've got a bunch of empiricists trying to describe things of unimaginable wonder."
- Calvin (Hobbes' friend)

The vastness of the galaxies and the intricacies of the atom are worthy of poetry, not just numbers. They point us to the greatness of our Creator!

The Least of These

My friend Randy in his blog referred to an article here. Again, I thought you readers would appreciate my comments on it:

Yes, that was a great article. The main point that I found to be true is that I should gladly give myself to helping the sick, the poor, the drug-addicted, the schizophrenic, the depressed... When I show my love for God by loving others that way, I actually find healing and great fulfillment for myself.

A few weeks ago I spent an evening with a deluded and quite paranoid friend. He thought he saw someone watching him - that person was definitely not there in reality. He warned me that there were hidden microphones in my car. He was absolutely tortured with fear. Somehow, I found it very satisfying to respond to his bizarre comments by showing him love, listening, telling him that God was there for him, and praying with him. My friend, who btw is very straight, hugged me and told me I was a true friend to him.

We don't find healing in pursuing heterosexuality, we find healing in pursuing God! One way He has given us to pursue Him is to show love to "the least of these".

Matthew 25:40 (ESV) And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.'
