I think wisdom is truly in short supply in our generation. It is not to say arrogantly that no one has wisdom, but it is just not apparent. I believe one of the greatest needs in our time is simply learning how to love and grow as human beings. With all the information that is cycled and all that advertising that we receive, it is vital that we seek through the ambiguity of all mainstream self-help nonsense that does not seem to help us change any more than we first began, leaving us more hopeless than when we started. But in order to fight this, how will this blog be the solution?
Biblically, this website will do everything in its power to demonstrate “authenticate humanity” under a Gospel worldview. This will not be simply quoting verses haphazardly in an attempt that one might hopefully apply into your life. No, the wisdom of the Bible is deeper than this. Instead, I will show what principles can be derived from the text in order that you may learn how to grow and how to love. I will show how you can relate and commune with God every day as I show you how these principles connect with our relationship with God and others. It is a fact in the Bible that the feelings and thoughts are not meant to be divorced, and I will model the blog after such a notion.
Scientifically, this website will equally strive for academic understanding of what it means to be human from the world of biology [emphasizing neuroscience, counseling psychology, genetics, and chemistry]. I might quote from a biologist on telling us how genetics can help us better grasp why we perform certain behaviors, and another day might lead us reading neurologists on how the brain operates when a person is depressed. Whatever the path, biology is a gift from God that should be used wisely to understand how we should love and how we should think/feel about ourselves, people, and God. As such, this blog will wisely apply biology for the empowerment of our daily lives.
And lastly, I also want to be creative in how these two are demonstrated. Stories and pictures speak messages more loudly than even dissertations can speak. Considering this, I want to make it a regular habit of connecting the various forms of entertainment, art, pop-culture, and even Facebook hijinks to show that all of which point back to who we are and who God is.
Enjoy your stay and comments are always welcomed.
