I. Am. So. Behind. ... I can't believe I haven't had a chance to sit down and write a post this week yet - well, I could have last night finally around 330AM, but I decided to go to sleep instead.... Excuses. Anyways - topics at top of mind: Managers versus Leaders, Job versus a Career, Humility, Startup Challenges, and Relationships. Yes, relationships are back in the bucket of topics on my mind - it's been a little while, huh? Yes, I probably have some updates there for you in that department, too. Too many things I could write about I don't know where to start.
I've been trying to get to know G-d again this year and a half (as I wrote in the original blog I started writing in, the All Things Wishful blog), after having lost touch for almost a decade - and the process has been quite interesting, heart wrenching at times, joyful, moving and humbling. This year, with the diligent and kind help of my man, we've been regularly attending church. I've started to realize, that going to church is kinda like a way for a person to regularly date G-d, get to know Him, spend time with Him and the church community. So interesting. So humbling. ... So amazing.
The pastor the other week posed the following that I had never thought of before. It was like mathematical wizardry or a proof that suddenly turned the light bulb back on for me.
A. True. There was a man named Jesus. Historical fact.
B. Prove that Jesus is the son of G-d. He was the perfect man and without sin.
Okay. A is True. Now, to prove that B is true? The question comes down to 1) was Jesus a good guy or 2) was Jesus a bad guy? He can't be both. If Jesus was just a man and not G-d as many religions think, then how can they consider Him to be a good person and a great prophet? How could that be? Jesus called Himself the son of G-d, the Messiah - if He was a just a man, wouldn't that just prove that He's crazy? How does a supposed good prophet going around town calling Himself G-d make Him a great prophet, or the enlightened one? It doesn't - that just makes Him plain crazy. But if B is true, and Jesus is indeed the son of G-d... well then, it'd mean that He's not only a historical figure, but He's really the Messiah. If all the other people who vouch for Him agree that He was a very good man, enlightened, a prophet... then obviously He wasn't crazy. I come to the conclusion: A + B = Jesus was an awesome man and is truly the son of G-d.
This is what's on my mind lately.
