It's ironic that I try to contact this organization and am confronted with
tips to control my asthma symptoms. It's ironic because at the age of 14
I was diagnosed with asthma, and have suffered from it in times of
allergic response and exercise induction in the subsequent years. It's
ironic because three weeks ago, I was suddenly and abrumpty separated from
this condition at the behest of the God of all creation, through belief in
his Son, Jesus Christ.
But this is not the nature of my call,
It is the question that drives us. And the question is why. Why when
1000 experiments are performed in under conditions that are ultimately
subject to laws man has yet to even reconcile with one another, are we to
ass-ume that those tests can be counted as conclusive proof of the
non-existence of Him that it is claimed to have authority over that which
have have yet to even adequately define.
To subject Logos to logic is a metaphysical impossibility as much as it is
to ask a computer to define its programmer. The computer is only as
intelligent as its programmer has dictated and cannot define its
programmer outside of those predetermined boundaries. Likewise, as logic
was born out of the subject of the logos, you cannot either disprove the
existance of the Logos by the measures afforded in logic. The very usage
of logic, whether verbally acknowledged or not, is voluntary subjection to
the Logos; that is...that truth is universal, and that we organize truth in
accordance with that primary truth.
While this does not prove the existance of God, God is an entirely
plausible explanation to the orderliness of nature which assumed by all
scientists. While the compilation of a Universal Law of Material
Governance proves what has always been assumed--that the universe is
logical--it fails to explain WHY the universe is logical. The end result,
whether to answer this question, or the redundant probing of a
four-year-old, is the inevitable "it just is!". Then, the only
irreconcilable is--and the answer, not to mention the question--seems
absent from any other religion system I've studied--Who, or What, "just
is"...if it is the Universe, than the Universe, by all human definition is
in fact, God. But the universe has not seemed to have made the claim that
it is eternal. Not evidentially anyways...
Rather, the universe gives all evidence in support of its finite
beginning, and no existing or theoretical methods of scientific evidence
gathering support otherwise--that is, apart from the presuppostion that
the universe was not created and thus, the persevering invention of theory
that COULD support that speculation.
In the statement "I Am" made by Jesus Christ, it was clearly understood,
amid the prevailing Chaldeo-Greco-Judean culture, that he was claiming
eternality--and thus, Godhood. Since then, it remains unclaimed by any
other source to BE eternal--and to my limited understanding, that would
include all philisophical as well as religious systems--than it seems that
the burden of proof lies on us to disprove the fact that Christ is God.
On the basis of reasoning, how can it be proved that one claiming to be
the Logos...the way, the truth, and the life, is not?...by proving his way
wrong, his truth, fiction, and his life, ended. Yet no moral system seems
to determine that his way is wrong...in fact all considerably moral
characaters in human history have paled in comparison to his moral
influence. In truth, no system of reasoning has yet to universally
mandate the attention fo such a transcendant audience of humanity outside
of the use of force. And life...well, none have, as yet, produced a body.
The whole of Christianity stands on the acts and claims of Jesus Christ.
Without them, the Bible is utterly invalidated, and mankind is utterly
guiltless...yet, there seems to be no credible evidence that any of the
things Jesus said to be untrue.
So then, my dillemma lies in the correlation between my present absence of
the symptoms of asthma, and the prior belief that Jesus Christ had promised
to set me free from them. I've studied much...and debated beyond my
desire to discover truth, but for me to attempt to reconcile these
circumstance by any other measures seems just...ungrateful.
Still though...one must desire truth in greater measure than their natural
vanity desires to be considered brilliant in order to arrive at truth.
Kelly, you are quite an attractive young lady...but you've ceased being
honest with yourself. What exactly is your goal? Dig deep within
yourself before you answer that. The impulsive response is only a measure
of self propaganda that serves the identical distractive purpose as any
