Revival

I began this blog as a tripartite vision of the human soul writ small in human language—spirit, mind, and body. It was supposed to clarify for me what I find valuable and meaningful in life. The spiritual, the social, and the self-soul. The philosophical, the political, and the personal. But I was paused. The Spirit... Continue Reading →

What is Love?

Love of self is our primal love, our true first love—the one that will slay us if left alive. There is always the temptation to avoid the hard things in life, and I know myself well enough to be thoroughly convinced of my own willingness to go through more work, pain, and suffering rather than...

What is Scripture?

There was a time in my life, primarily in college, when I found the Bible to be wearisome if not outright irritating. In my personal observation, higher education seems to cultivate an overactive critical ideology that results in cynicism in many students. In myself, I found that skepticism sprung up in my heart like a... Continue Reading →

Dear readers, I began this website with some notions of grandeur, but it all revolved around what I wanted to say regarding the issues that I found interesting and important.

And it seems that politics is this all consuming force that gets into the heart and mind of everyone. To whom can... Continue Reading →

The Relational Heart of Religion

What is Man in the singular sense? A masterpiece on a mountain, continuously facing all but certain madness on all sides...but for the persons that root him in the relational. Yet we think that individualism is strength, that self is the sole solution to our woes. Self is not the solution, it is the space... Continue Reading →

What Do You See?

It is of supreme importance not that our life be easy and smooth, with every desire met, rather that our vision and viewpoint be pure and powerful, filled with light. Because when dark days come, and be sure that they will, if you have nothing to light your way, well then, you are lost and... Continue Reading →

Longing

How does one live (and breathe) in a world where everyone has an opinion about everything, all while competing ideologies that exist in their minds wage war for dominance? Do you ever feel overwhelmed and numb from all the dissonant noise? There's some longing that I surely have, though I would think many others have... Continue Reading →
