Two interesting quotes…

Both of these I have read today in the course of studying for exams.

From Anthony Weston’s A Rulebook for Arguments

Similarly, religious moralists often have declared that certain practices are wrong because they are contrary to the will of God. We should reply God ought to be spoken for a little more cautiously. God’s will is not easy to ascertain, and when God speaks so softly it is easy to confuse that “still small voice” with our own personal prejudices.

A little earlier I had read this –

He was in the world, and the world was created through him yet the world did not recognise him. He came to his own people who did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be children on God.[…] No-one has ever seen God. The one and only Son – the one who is at the Father’s side – he has revealed him.

Want to hear God speak loudly? Jesus is the answer.

  1. yep, if we are tuly interesting in answers, we know where to go. The answers are there, the voices will speak. We just have to be humble enough to acknowledge a Higher Power.

    blessings.

  2. Good pick up Kate. That line in Weston made me uncomfortable as well. What a blessing it is to have a God who not only acts in our world but tells us why he acts in our world.
