dialogue
Dialogue

Patient: When the doctors said that she had two months to live, that is when I made a bargain..

House: With your health insurance carrier?

Patient: With God, that I will nail my self to a cross every year he kept her alive.

House: So how did that negotiation go, you low balled with ear piercing and God countered?

Patient: Three weeks later she was cancer free. And that was four years ago.

House: Pontius Pilate, misunderstood the oncologist!

Patient: My wife thinks I am crazy too. She moved out the first time I did this.

House: At least your daughter has one viable role model.

Daughter (Melissa): You do not believe in God.

House: I did and then I grew my curly hairs.

Daughter (Melissa): So how do you think I was cured?

House: Maybe you were misdiagnosed in the first place.

Patient: You have your answers doctor, we have ours.

House: Causal determinism, we are hard wired to need answers. The cave man who heard a rustle in the bushes to check out what it was lived longer than the one who just assumed it was a breeze. The problem is when we do not find a logical answer we settle for a stupid one, which is what happens when we run out of rational ones.

Other doctor: If you are done mocking him. WE need to prepare for an LP

House: Good! Put another hole in him! That will really make God’s day!

Christian Faith

Paradoxes

Faith

Certain, Yet Obscure

Reasonable, yet beyond Reason

Free, Yet Morally Obliging

An Act, yet a Life Long Process

A Gift, but Our Doing

Personal, yet Ecclesial

reasonable yet beyond natural reason
Reasonable, yet beyond natural reason
  • Faith does not conflict with reason.
  • Human beings have the capacity to have faith because they have the ability to reason.
reasonable yet beyond natural reason1
Reasonable, yet beyond natural reason
  • Yet, natural reason is not enough. We need God to enlighten us!
  • Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (Joh 8:12)

elaboration on the argument of goodness
Elaboration on the Argument of Goodness
  • C.S. Lewis’ Conclusions
    • Human beings have a sense for what is good
    • Human beings do not choose what is good
    • Good and Bad (Natural Law) is outside the Human Construct (i.e. was not created by man)
  • Two Events for your thoughts (Example that are clearly acceptable as good or bad)
  •  Main Question: Is law of human nature (i.e. the concept of right and wrong) man made?
  • Moral Law=Herd Instinct?
    • The Moral Law (standard) is different from our instinct
    • The moral law judges between two instincts therefore it cannot be that instinct.
    • The Moral Law encourages us to follow the weaker instinct
  • The Moral Law is a guide
  • Moral Law= Social Convention??
    • If we learned it from someone it is a human convention?
    • Some things we learn are fixed i.e. we cannot just change it
    • Some things we learn can be different for other people
  • The question is to which class the Law of Human Nature belongs (i.e. “Mathematics” and “Traffic Convention”)
    • There is such a thing as a standard we are aiming for
    • People think there are no major differences in our morality
    • Therefore ,moral standards belong to the class of mathematics

CNN Hero of the Year

Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry…

Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need.

So to each and every person inside in this theater and for those who are watching at home, the hero in you is waiting to be unleashed.

Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve.

As I always tell (to) my co-volunteers … you are the change that you dream as I am the change that I dream and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be.”

  • EfrenPenaflorida
maguindanao massacre
Maguindanao Massacre
  • The Maguindanao massacre, also known as the Ampatuan massacre (after the townwhere the mass graves were found), occurred on the morning of November 23, 2009, in the town of Ampatuan in Maguindanao province, on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The victims were about to file a certificate of candidacy for EsmaelMangudadatu, vice mayor of Buluan town. Mangudadatu was challenging Datu Unsay mayor AndalAmpatuan, Jr., son of the incumbent Maguindanao governor DatuAndalAmpatuan Sr., in the forthcoming Maguindanao gubernatorial election,[1] part of the national elections in 2010. Those killed included Mangudadatu's wife, his two sisters, lawyers, aides, and motorists who were witnesses or were mistakenly identified as part of the convoy.
