Blog Break (11 Mar 13)… and Some [Not So] Bad News

11/03/2013 — 2 Comments

Are you ready? Check these out:

  1. WHO CREATED GOD? No, the answer is not as simple as you may assume at first (it is not “no one”). This question is usually asked in the context of the argument that says, “If something cannot come from nothing, then where did God come from?” This article provides a brief but excellent way of approaching the question when confronted by atheists or skeptics. Check it out.
  2. BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE … MATHEMATICIAN? Did you know that there is a direct correlation between a woman’s physical beauty and mathematics? Read on and find out what it is… Amy Henry: “Telling our girls that outward beauty doesn’t matter isn’t going to keep them from wanting it. Somewhere in their soul, they know beauty matters.”
  3. SEX IN THE SERMON Melissa Kruger: “Society shames sex by speaking of it too often in the wrong context, with smirks and innuendos. Conversely, we in the church often shame sex by failing to speak of it all, missing the opportunities the Word of God appropriates for our instruction.” This article reminded me of a song by Mission Driven from a few years back, “Sex in the Temple” Check it out.
  4. Finally, in THE COVER VS THE CONTENT, Tony Were reminds us that “looks can be deceiving. Judgment is easily passed on the most trivial of assumptions – but that does not change the hard facts of stubborn truth. Some of the  greatest books ever written  have the  weirdest or most  bland covers ever. That doesn’t change the fact that they are great books!”

Enjoy the links!

NOW, TO THE [NOT SO] BAD NEWS…

I am taking a break. That’s right, Cornell needs to take some time off from blogging and social media to take more walks in the green countryside and gaze at the starry night skies. It’s important, you should try it too. There are also other private projects that I need to focus on and they may take up much of my time. Don’t worry, I won’t be gone for long, only a month or two… or less 🙂 Meanwhile, keep your light shining… and keep reading.

I’ll be back before you know it.

Cornell

Soli Deo Gloria.

    It’s funny that the article for “Who Created God” proves its point by pointing out that the question doesn’t make sense. If your answer is to just define god as always having existed, you don’t really address the question at all.

    Where is the proof? How do you know? Were you there?

    And the argument is pretty ridiculous: God created the universe, and god must have existed before the universe to have created it, and since nothing comes from nothing god must have always existed. What is this predicated on?
