A missed flight, Serendipity, Quantum Mechanics and the Bible

How did double missed flights end up with a serendipitous conversation about “Principles”, Financial markets, Oppenheimer, the idea of true knowledge, the limitations of human intelligence, the nature of a photon, wave-particle duality of light, quantum mechanics, retro-causation, how Penrose postulates the “shadow” of a multiverse, how actions can have effects BEFORE and after the time it happens on the quantum scale and the Bible? God can create what you really need from uncomfortable spaces in our lives. … More A missed flight, Serendipity, Quantum Mechanics and the Bible

Believing in Yourself vs the God-shaped Hole in your heart (Abeyance Series: Part 1)

Have you noticed how empty advice like “just believe in yourself” or “don’t ever let anyone tell you your doing it wrong” are? These questions are rooted in liberal postmodernism that is steeped in today’s culture. Yet, this spirit is nothing new, the Bible has preempted this a millennium ago. They repacked ideas that men should make themselves the final arbiter of truth and power. No, my friend, I argue that the great God-shaped hole in your heart can only be filled by the fullness of God’s grace, in Christ Jesus. … More Believing in Yourself vs the God-shaped Hole in your heart (Abeyance Series: Part 1)

Millennials and the Elephant in the Room – Pilate and Jesus (Part 2 of 5)

Pilate and Jesus. One is on the side of power and accusation, the other like a lamb to be slaughtered. Pilate had already seen it all. He was the original Millennial of 0 A.D, before the Millennials of 2000 A.D. Even more so, this guy actually had great achievements. He was revered and envied. If he had Facebook, every small thought he posts would have thousands of likes by sycophants. Take a page from Pilate. Achievements on desperate display cannot fill up the God-shaped hope in your heart. … More Millennials and the Elephant in the Room – Pilate and Jesus (Part 2 of 5)

Millennials and The Elephant in the Room. (Part 1 of 5)

This is the heart of post-modernism, that there is no truth beyond the truth that we I make. In today’s climate, we live in sad contradiction. We are supposed to make our own goal posts, yet we feel pressured when others excel more than us. We are supposed to celebrate “doing things our own way” and “being ourselves”, until you step on some others who are also “being themselves”. As they say, today’s diplomacy is giving you permission to do things my way. But making men, including one’s self, the ultimate authority for truth and reality has always been a bad idea. Which dictator do you know who was not subject to a better higher power actually turned out well? Being forced to contend with the full force of relativism was a war on my mind. … More Millennials and The Elephant in the Room. (Part 1 of 5)
