People in Public.

It is fascinating to watch people in an airport. Each one looks so unique and different yet all are disparagingly similar. Can anyone explain this seeming paradox of humanity?

DNA. The same but different.

When I was in NYC over spring break I we went to Grand Central Station to get to and from the airport. When we were there I stood in the middle and just watched everyone rush around me. It was an amazing exspirience that I will never forget. People meeting their friends, the expressions of joy on some people faces, and others not caring about anything but where they were going.
The whole time I was listening to As Cities Burn, a really slow song that has recordings of people questioning God's existance and the writer wondering if what everyone is rushing after is really God. It was really surreal and felt a strong presence of God, like my eyes were being opened.

check out my new post about deconstructing evil...based off the first chapter of N.T. Wrights book, "Evil and the Justice of God"

and when I say God is "illusive" you must know I mean elusive

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
