Found myself again

I found my picture here on the website of St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis, MO. I used to be a chaplain resident there. I am pictured with other residents with whom I became quite close. It was good to see that picture again. I sure do miss those folks.

Willy, this is actually a response to your previous post on the Bible, but I didn't want you to miss it.

I think you made your argument pretty difficult to refute. Certainly, we don't believe the Bible completely--no matter who the "we" is that we identify with. As I was reading, I kept thinking that maybe the prayer Evangelicals need to identify with is not the prayer of Jabez but the prayer of the father from Mark 9. And, of course, then you cited it.

Another way to show that we don't believe the Bible is by how we respond to God's love for other people. Sure, if I believed God loves me I would live differently. But, if I believed God loves others, I would live differently then too. In my own life, I am most convicted by my unbelief with regard to my family. I must not believe that God loves them because I don't really have a lot of hope that they will ever be convinced of God's love.
