I’ve realized that there are some debates, that I just decline. I think this is one of those I’m-older-and-probably-won’t-change-on-this things.

I’ll say, “no, we shouldn’t.”

Then this reply will ensue, “Do…

This is really interesting

“we are far too easily pleased.”
— C S Lewis (via athenagracee)
“My theism is a deliberate choice. An intellectually informed choice, grounded in study and a careful examination of the evidence at hand. This statement tends to perplex atheists and empiricists, who tend to dismiss theists as stupid, deluded, misguided and at worst dangerous. I am a theist who thinks. Who constantly asks “Why?” Who attempts to explore and perhaps reconcile the antagonisms that come with being a theist in a world filled with pain. I was told that it is wrong to question God and his existence. I have concluded that a God who doesn’t like questions, isn’t one worthy of worship. It made more sense to be in relentless pursuit of a God who could handle my questions and instantly understood my need for answers. I do not believe an admission of faith stops us from thinking or is evidence of shoddy reasoning. In fact the gift of faith makes it incumbent upon us to think more. To think carefully, consistently and lucidly at a greater intensity than you otherwise would. To ensure the manifestation of your thoughts, your words and your deeds makes the world a better place. I am a thinking theist, and contrary to secular perception, this is not an oxymoron - Christiana Mbakwe”

Whose exit was subject just to be predicated in whether or ever this little fella would ever make it up out of Vegas. Because in his mind, that education was the only way to truly find…
