The Very First Post On This Blog


Victors' Corner

a-poem-we-know-by-victor-uyanwanne We Know

The post you are about to read was the very first content published on this blog. As I said in the post before this one, this blog just turned two years old.

To further commemorate the milestone, I am reposting the pioneer post here for you to read. It was initially published when there were no followers on this Blog. That tells me that you may not have seen it yet.

Now that I have you, kindly indulge me as I present to you, “We Know,” the very first and oldest post on this blog. I guarantee you will find something useful in it.

We Know

We know we have potentials,
But we are not doing enough to develop them.
What is the use of a vibrant energy,
That remains buried and untapped?

We know the future is bright,
But we keep living in the past!

Ashton Kutcher & Why Sex is Not Morally Neutral


god from the machine

Recently, celebrity Ashton Kutcher appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to speak about child sex trafficking. First, among all the political and social nonsense spewing from every direction these days, it’s good to see someone putting his fame and wealth towards something worth fighting for. Give it a watch/listen; it’s worth the time, though not something easy to listen to due to the subject matter.

As I listened to Mr. Kutcher, I couldn’t help having a thought I’ve had before: Despite what popular culture tells us, sex is not morally neutral.

GROUNDING YOUR MORALITY

Before we talk about sex, let’s talk about morality in general.

As a Christian, I find myself often addressing two claims of secular people:

(1) Morality is relative.

(2) People can be moral without God.

It is often not hard to refute #1, as all I have to do is bring up something like…

Why am I Fearless?


Fearless

I used to be fearless. I had the world by the tail. I knew what I wanted and went after it. I was successful and felt good about my life. Enter Multiple Sclerosis. Enter fear.

Fear can be defined as an emotion caused by the belief that something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. MS has shaken up my life and has caused me to believe that it, and the accompanying symptoms, is a threat to my well being. The fear is what I struggle with the most.

I was convinced a while back that I couldn’t go on a sightseeing trip around Seattle. I thought about the intense walking, the sun and heat, climbing up and down the amphibian boat we were to ride, and how fatigued I would get. I was concerned about being a burden and slow everyone down. My son lobbied hard and…

Glitter–Daily Prompt


Fearless

When I was the director of a Boys and Girls Club, art was an important part of our activities. But I hated to see our instructors get the glitter out. Because I knew it be on the floor or in the carpet for many years to come!

Early Christian Manuscripts: Encore


Larry Hurtado's Blog

Early Christian manuscripts, especially copies of texts that served as scripture, exhibit both plain, functional qualities, and also distinctive features that are purely visual and that reflect a desire to mark the manuscripts and their texts with a Christian identity.

I’ve posted on some of these matters before (simply click on “codex” and/or “manuscripts” in the word-cloud on the right-hand side of the home page).  But I want to underscore two interesting things that reflect two different aims, which are combined in early Christian manuscripts.

For anyone who has viewed high-quality literary manuscripts of the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, the Christian literary manuscripts of the same period will seem somewhat plain in comparison.  Typically, the “hand” of these Christian manuscripts is not as elegant or “calligraphic” as in the pagan manuscripts reflecting elite circles of readers.  The impression given is of functionality as being the important factor.  These Christian manuscripts…
