Past signatures and other miscellany…

If everything in the physical universe is the paint (including ourselves, conscious paint) and God is the painter — science can only study the paint — it cannot tell us why God made it, or what picture He is painting with it. Religion without God can only guess at why, and philosophy can only analyze the guesses. If we want to find the ultimate Purpose, we must find God, or be receptive to being found.

[quote=”someoneisatthedoor”][quote=”angst-ridden”]and god prohibits philosophy… you have to believe what he says….[/quote]

Tell that to Aquinas, Platinga, Kant et al.

Don’t be silly, philosophy requires the same sort of faith belief in God requires. Faith is the bottom line left, right and centre.[/quote]

Ichthys (ΙΧΘΥΣ, Greek for fish) is an acronym, which is a word formed from the initial letters of the several words in the name. It compiles to “Jesus Christ God’s Son is Saviour” or “Jesus Christ God’s Son Saviour”. (definition taken from Wikipedia — history is available there as well).

“So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” — Isaiah 55:11

“Sin is rarely an ugly thing
until you have selfishly bitten.”
– from Defining Moments (2003), by Cobra

“This is grace: an invitation to be beautiful.” — Sara Groves, “Add to the Beauty”

“Come now, and let us reason together.” – God, in Isaiah 1:18-20
