Remember all the commandments of the Lord, to do them, not to follow after your own heart and your own eyes which you are inclined to whore after.
— Numbers 15:39
Those who have more than enough are responsible before God to share with those who have less than enough… God’s justice demands that we redistribute our resources.

God provides and leaves it for men to share with each other, but they do not care to do so.

Government alone though, however good, can never bring justice… I am persuaded that the Church, as the steward of the gospel, holds the key to justice in our society.

Poverty, you see, is much more than lack of money; poverty is the lack of options.

My cultural study is going well, but I’ve found it necessary to start on some community reform study as well

It is hypocritical of us to neglect reading our Bibles, and then cry out in prayer as though we are hungry for God. Real hunger pushes us into the scriptures.

Jesus exposed the ugliness of inhumane religious laws by healing on the Sabbath. He exposed the ugliness of patriarchy by his respectful treatment of women. He exposed the ugliness of cultural taboos by touching lepers and having fellowship with unacceptable “sinners”. He exposed the ugliness of institutionalized Jewish racism by ministering to and praising Gentiles and Samaritans. And he exposed the ugly injustice of the Roman government and the world by entering into solidarity with a rebel race and letting us crucify him on the cross. Jesus’ whole life was the kingdom of God, and his consistent sacrificial love, in solidarity with the oppressed, consistently provided a beautiful contrast to the ugliness of the oppressive kingdom of the world and the oppressive principalities and powers that are over it.

I think being skeptical and inquisitive can be good.

But let it lead you to the truth; not to complacency, or to a skeptic limbo where you’re only accountable to yourself.

Apparently I have an IQ of about 137
(According to a couple online tests).
(Which would put me in the top %2)

I’m trying to figure out why I get so tired of people teaching and elaborating things that I keep thinking are obvious.

I got so sick of job training today.

And I get so sick of the way most people debate.

And many other things.

I’m just trying to figure out why I’ve been so irritable and disappointed in the world lately.
