On the "Nature" of God

NOTICE: HAVING COME UNDER CRITICAL SCRUTINY, THIS ARTICLE WILL BE EDITED TO CLARIFY SOME REMARKS THAT MIGHT SOUND A LITTLE TOO MUCH LIKE HERESY. I DO NOT WANT TO BE A HERETIC. I AM NOT A HERETIC. THEREFORE I WILL MAKE EDITS THAT MAKE IT CLEAR THAT I AM NOT A HERETIC. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND IF YOU READ ANY FURTHER.   —Eric

The Great Paradox

It is an exceedingly beautiful and wonderous paradox: that the sovereign God of the universe has called us not unto blind, rote, or automatic conformity with His will, but unto willing obedience and submission to His will.

"I believe that God, in His compassionate dealings with those whom He loves, sometimes allows trials to come to the ones He finds especially submitted to His will, who are eager to discover what path He has laid out for them. 

On Electromagnetism and Intelligent Design

Most modern arguments for Intelligent Design focus on the complexity and elegance of all the various forms of life in our world, including ourselves. Indeed, one only has to look at any of the many sub-processes of the human body, such as the Krebs Cycle, in order to be filled with a sense of wonder about who it was that put all this together.

Reconciliation: Prerequisite to Intimacy

… Then the Lord God made the rib He had taken from the man into a woman and brought her to the man.  And the man said:

This one, at last, is bone of my bone
and flesh of my flesh;
this one will be called “woman,”
for she was taken from man.

This is why a man leaves his father and mother and bonds with his wife, and they become one flesh.  Both the man and his wife were naked, yet felt no shame.

—Genesis 2:22‭-‬25 HCSB
