Oisin and Ronan Kang-O’Higgins (ages 10 and 8) from Seattle, WA couldn’t paint their walls, so they used painter’s tape and construction paper to make a TARDIS on the French doors in their bedroom.

I keep thinking oh man, I’m so immature. How am I allowed to be an adult.

Then I spend time with teenagers.

And it’s like, wow, okay, yeah. I am an adult. I am so adult. Look at me adulting all over the place.

My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?

Penitence

I never really thought about how silly it is as Christians to have acts of penitence. 

Now, repentance is necessary, but to try to perform acts in penitence is counter productive.  There are times where you need to be reconciled to a person or replace/return something, but to require yourself, or be required by someone else to do something in order to make up for a wrong done isn’t how grace works.  

I don’t know how many religions have a system like that, or how many people do it to themselves, but if you think about it, if we could do something to make up for a wrong we had done, why did Christ have to die?  Was His sacrifice insufficient?

No. 

Repentance doesn’t require a frantic effort to do more good than the bad you have done. 

I think that notion can really trap us in a dead spot because there are often times when there is nothing you can do.  When my friend whom I mistreated died, there was no making that right, I couldn’t fix that and there was and is nothing I can do to make up for that, but there is grace for it. 

I am restored through grace.  I am reconciled to God through the blood of Christ because His sacrifice was sufficient. 

This does not mean I can do whatever I want, because repentance means you break the pattern. 

If you are doing things to make up for the wrong you’ve done, and then turn around and do the wrong again, that’s a sure sign you don’t really understand.

I think we like to think we can do things to earn grace because it is uncomfortable to think that it isn’t in our control. 

I wonder if it is also that we simply want to get to heaven, but do not truly wish to know God or be better.

We don’t wanna be right, we just want to look right. (That’s an As Cities Burn lyrics right?)

But there is so much life in learning God’s character and being transformed by it.

This is beautiful and it’s amazing to me that it had such a positive outcome and not lifelong hateful grudges, which is probably what these attackers deserved.

messing around on wikipedia

kinda surprised to read this on Craig Ferguson’s page.

"Ferguson’s experience in entertainment began as a drummer in a rock band called Exposure. He then joined a punk band called The Bastards from Hell.[13] The band, later renamed “Dreamboys”, and fronted by vocalist Peter Capaldi, performed regularly in Glasgow from 1980 to 1982.[14] Ferguson credits Capaldi for inspiring him to try comedy.”
