Introduction and Welcome to Holy Philosophy
Holy, Holy. Holy is the Lord God Almighty. The facts pertaining to Divinity have been passed to humanity; they are ours to explore. Let us do so...
“Whoa, the times are a changing.” The lines are drawn and Iron curtain is steadily strengthening. The lines divide countries, religions, families and even our own tender souls. War, divorce, violence and treachery stem from a self imposed segregation. A segregation that warrants the philosophy “My ways are superior to your ways; as my inferior I may justly inflict harm upon you.” In theological realms the differences are truly striking. Many have abandoned a pursuit of correctness for the more fulfilling exercise of mudslinging. In the political sphere, intentions are the name of the game. “What were they hoping to achieve?” A politician is only judged by his results positively by their supporters and negatively by his enemies. More common than a standard of success is how dearly did they hold to a fluctuating label of “Conservative” or “Liberal”.
Such unremitting movements cannot advance but by the destruction of their opposition. Since I am right and you are wrong you can produce nothing of value. There is nothing to learn; for how can one improve upon perfection? Hence all our views of our neighbors, somewhere over the curtain can be catalogued into failures. A mental arsenal that justifies our enmity. Ignorance and malice are the fornicators who conceive and spawn their offspring: “Propaganda and Defamation”. With our family established we secure our borders with the the sweet song of affirmation “Everything you believe is right and everything they believe is wrong.” This anthem nourishes our bulwark against ...the enemy. The enemy has done the same.
So why bother? Because truth can tear down the walls. When we realized that we are all loved and are designed to love we realize that there are things worth saving. Truth can reignite passion in a marriage and love between parent and child. Truth makes us acknowledge that God loves us all (John 3:16) because we are lovely. We see others as lovely and more lovable. Truth is the syringe of love. The mantra “I'm going to Heaven so you can go to Hell” is demolished by the truthful commandment to love one another as we are loved by God. These joys are fueled by truth and their fruit is procreation of all that is good. Let us express that goodness and sing as the walls come down and love rushes in.
What we hope to achieve is a pursuit of truth. This will mean approaching a bundled mess of ideologies, stripping the lies, reconnecting the broken and weaving the established. That which is thoroughly tested can protect and assault against the vile lies we seek to abolish. When we pass our mind through the fire on earth we will save our self much hay in Heaven.
2Pe 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
Together we quest for truth in order to steer a path for towards peace and prosperity for all.
God Love You -- Rev. Sheen
