I can hear the wind, but I don’t always know where it is coming from, or where it is going. My ideas are different. A good idea is a revelation of truth and beauty. You can let me know what you think in the comments. 5 Jesus answered, “Amen, amen, I say to you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. 6 What is born of flesh is flesh and what is… Read more

I believe faith in Christ expresses the perfection and happiness available to the human person. A perfect, whole, and holy human life is passed down to believers by current and former practitioners of the Christian religion, retracing our steps to Jesus himself. Sense God in Christ: Live, be, and act in Unity with God’s will | Chris Longobardo (patheos.com) I have identified time as the factor that impacts mortals with the greatest magnitude. Patience is the virtue most needed, our… Read more

Prudence, as a virtue, helps us discern the true good in all circumstances. Virtue of any kind is a likeness to a perfection. Discernment of any kind is an intellectual ability. Prudence also helps us choose the most ethical way of achieving the true good. Christians should know by now that all forms of entertainment do not glorify God. Do you know the meaning of giving glory to God? It means to do something that celebrates his goodness, generosity, etc…. Read more

It’s reasonable for a person with a drug problem to admit they have a problem. Denial is happening when addicts do not acknowledge they have a problem. Prudence as a essential human virtue means I make accurate judgements. A drug addict that denies they have a problem is not making accurate judgements. Mature faith as the solution to a lot of life’s problems will have to include this knowledge, and acceptance of it/ agreement with it. A person with a… Read more

My personal relationship with Jesus means I am aware of my faults. God loves me in spite of my faults and sins. We rub up against conflict whenever friction/ strife happens. I have news for you, your emotions are part of your body. That’s “the rub.” Dealing with challenging/ difficult situations isn’t easy, and a lot of people don’t want to do it. Mature people have done it. Emotionally intelligent people have done it. They are mature and emotionally intelligent… Read more

My highest happiness is understanding and helping others. I enjoy self care, and I know what good self care is, but I would choose helping others if I was going to get paid to do something for the rest of my life. I self medicated for a long time trying to enhance my life, but I was ignorant of the consequences of what I was doing. Even though some parts of my life were enhanced, I wasn’t truly happy. I… Read more

Management expects me to act a certain way and say certain things when I am at work, because I am at work and I am getting paid to be there and do that. I will work for money, but God wants me to do things for the right reason. I can break the code of conduct or company policy and employers don’t call that a sin, they call it cause for disciplinary action. 18 What difference does it make, as… Read more

I can talk about three kinds of formation: human formation, intellectual formation, and spiritual formation. You have heard of the age of a child’s life being called “the formative years.” Consider the following: Christians are also known as children of God. My life “version one” begins in 1982 and ends in 2006. I started an important job in 2006, and that is when I started becoming a man and earning respect. Human formation includes my biology, and it also includes… Read more

Natural reason is a part of human nature. Believers and non-believers have use of reason and intellect. Religious experience is different, but it is still natural. We can sense God in ourselves and others, we can sense God in nature and creation, and we can sense God in the visible universe. Along the way he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that I am?” Mark 8:27 When Jesus asks his disciples “who do you say that I am,” if… Read more

On music, and the beauty of God: Music is one of the great loves of my life. It is easy for me to say that I have the music in me. I listen to music while I work. My physical work, like painting a room, installing a toilet, or fixing an engine is assisted by the music I listen to. I assume that all adults enjoy listening to music while they work. I assume that children will watch and listen… Read more
