The abortion issue of the world brings to mind the issue of happiness. I should not be happy that people are angry or afraid because their legal right to have abortions may be taken away from them, but I am. I am happy that some people’s right to have a legal abortion could be taken away from them, but should I be? I grew up watching X-Men the Animated Series on TV. My dad said that his favorite comic book... Read more

Right now, people believe they are witnessing signs of the end of the world. This is a very scary time for non-believers. For a long time, non-believers have been talking about what they believe, and the end of the world frightens them. The end of the world would frighten anyone without faith. This is why we have to watch what we say. Speech becomes reality. When I say, faith is a gift of God, and grace precedes faith, one must... Read more

Virtue, holiness, and religion are connected. The kind of fasting that I am writing about is moral, and it is personal. My wife and I are in charge of it. The following of rules is a kind of religion, based in morality, that everybody follows. We don’t have to have the same understanding of holiness, and we don’t have to have the same understanding of virtue or grace. My wife’s birthday is December 1st. 18 Avoid immorality. Every other sin... Read more

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 ( 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
