This highly controversial page is for those with open minds and souls and those unwilling to make opinions and judge books by their covers (which I only do at bookstores). Because, you know, a book cover is like a block of moldy cheese...and I'm not sure where I'm going with that, so let's just skip the introduction and take a look at some...

Finding Comfort

All I am doing is to ask people to face the facts—to understand the questions which Christianity claims to answer. And they are very terrifying facts. I wish it was possible to say something more agreeable. But I must say what I think true. Of course, I quite agree that the Christian religion is, in the long run, a thing of unspeakable comfort. But it does not begin in comfort; it begins in the dismay I have been describing, and it is no use at all trying to go on to that comfort without first going through that dismay. In religion, as in war and everything else, comfort is the one thing you cannot get by looking for it. If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end: if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth—only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin with and, in the end, despair.

That thou mayest walk in the way of good men, and keep the paths of the righteous (2:20).
I knew a little boy who was always good when his mother was watching him, but whenever she was out of sight he was a terror. His mother thought he was the perfect child because he never gave her any problems. Other children never wanted him around, though. The other children's parents tried to explain to the boy's mother how her son behaved when she was away, but she would not listen to them.
The woman finally opened her eyes and caught on to the way her son often behaved. She was amazed at the way her son worked so skillfully to impress her by his good behavior. We are often like that young boy when it comes to our relationship with God. When we think that God is watching us we are on our best behavior, but when we forget that He is there, we misbehave. It is as we grow in our knowledge of God's presence in our lives that it is easier to walk the path of righteousness. When we realize that He is with us every moment of every day we are compelled to live good and upright lives. We must admit our weakness and that we need God to motivate us when we will not motivate ourselves to right living.
prayer: Guide my steps, O Lord, that I might always, in every way, be found pleasing in your sight. Grant me special insight that I might recognize your presence in my life. Amen.
