Born again

Its easy to proclaim, but your heart is most important

And I think, it’s very important we find out what is the born again christian and what is born again christian suppose to be like.

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he can not enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel no that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
John 3:5-7

To make people quit to hate each other, fighting each other, and start loving each other, You cant pass the law to make people love each other, it has to come from the heart and Jesus says, it will only come from heart that is heal to the Christ, to Him self and thats why He said, you must be born again.


William Franklin Graham Jr. (November 7, 1918 – February 21, 2018) was an American evangelist, a prominent evangelical Christian figure, and an ordained Southern Baptist minister who became well-known internationally in the late 1940s. One of his biographers has placed him “among the most influential Christian leaders” of the 20th century.

What you say

Here is one of best quote describing about what we ought to say.

Learning to think first about the meaning of it before we spit it out which should be encouraging, benefited rather than destructive to other.

First learn the meaning of what you say, and then speak.

By Epictetus

Inadmissible

Here is a brilliant quote from Carl Jung that explains why so many of us are feeling lonely today.

Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

I can see why people are looking for acknowledgement, approval or acceptance from other people. We are wired that way.

Language form a basic communication between two or more. Idea and thought can be passed through if we all are open to listen to one another humbly.

Mature in our thought simply but listening to others people perspectives without any judgement or conclusion from our side and accept their view as it is.

If you can support it, you do. If you can’t, just filter that out and leave it there.

Or we simply live a facade that makes us feel isolated.

*Facade is an outward appearance that is maintained to conceal a less pleasant or creditable reality.

In simple word, a false appearance that makes someone or something seem more pleasant or better than they really are.

Jung was also an artist, craftsman and builder as well as a prolific writer. Many of his works were not published until after his death and some are still awaiting publication.

Jung’s work was influential in the fields of psychiatry, anthropology, archaeology, literature, philosophy, and religious studies.

The choice is yours

Have you ever heard of Noam Chomsky? If not, you might be surprised to hear that he is one of the most quoted scholars in history. The NY times also described him as the “top intellectual alive”.

Considering his groundbreaking theories on linguistic psychology and politics, why haven’t the majority of the American population heard of him?

The answer is simple. He goes against mainstream thought and has frequently criticized the actions of the US government and mainstream media.

As most of us consume our information through mainstream media, it’s easy to see why he isn’t as popular as he should be.

On Creating a Better Future

Optimism is a strategy for making a better future.
Because unless you believe that the future can be better, it’s unlikely you will step up and take responsibility for making it so.

If you assume that there’s no hope, you guarantee that there will be no hope.

If you assume that there is an instinct for freedom, there are opportunities to change things, there’s a chance you may contribute to making a better world.

The choice is yours.

Breathe and allow things to pass.

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you.

True power is sitting back and observing things with logic.

True power is restraint.

If words control you that means everyone else can control you.

Breathe and allow things to pass.

Be fearless and peaceful.

Every year, we have a verse that we hold on in Faith. A Hope that will guide us through out the year and be fruitful in the process walking in Him.

This year our family verse will be this

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid

John 14:27 (ESV)

Be fearless and peaceful at the same time.

God gives assurance to us, what He gives is not the same with the world gives.

World give will always changing, depend on which power is the strongest, that mark the things that we can not have faith of, assured and even confirmed what we will get, it will just the empty compliments.

Why God Created us?

This is one of so many questions we ask in our life.

I want to find out more, so I have asked few friends to get the idea or probably the foundation before searching through the internet to found out about it.

Some of friends would say, its because God loves us (i believe it was based on the John 3:16),

some say because we got to eat all those animal and vegetable (based on genesis, the creation)

Another will say, we were created to show His existence and to glory Him. Mention in from Paul’s letter to corinthian.

I was still not fill with it. I dont buy as feel, it is more than that.

I found something, when john piper mention it on their daily devotional video (desiring god). He created us for His glory and he said, you can find it in this verse.

everyone who is called by my name,
whom I created for my glory,
whom I formed and made.

Isaiah 40:7 (ESV)

And also some article they wrote. An article published on 2012, you can read it here. (https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/god-is-most-glorified-in-us-when-we-are-most-satisfied-in-him)

It says in short about it
Why did God create the world? And I answered: God created this world for the praise of the glory of his grace displayed supremely in the death of Jesus. The problem is that at the heart of that answer is God’s self-promotion. God created the world for his own praise — for his own glory.

So people see this as a problem — that God created the world for his own praise. They think such self-exaltation would be immoral and loveless. That may be how you feel.

God is most glorified in you when you are most satisfied in him. That’s the shortest summary of what we mean by Christian Hedonism. If that is true, then there is no conflict between your greatest exhilaration and God’s greatest glorification.
