The NO-God World

And what does it mean to our response to the world?

Ravi Zacharias and Alistar Begg are my favorite podcasters. Ravi was born and brought up in India, and Alistar is from Scotland. If I stay on this that, I will soon no longer know Christ without an accent.

Ravi has a series which deals with a problem I have been struggling over, though I don’t think he designed his lecture that way. Ravi is trying hard to deal with the 20th and 21st century perspective which has rejected God. My trouble is similar. I’d like to know how the concept of country has been smashed in our times.

If you take the time to listen to his podcasts, put the position of Christ’s church first. How can we speak to a world of non-believers who are in fact convinced of the universe without God.

At some point consider also the lost state of patriotism and nations. We seem to have lost a lot of that as well. Millennials are equally convinced that America is a quaint fiction, built on the words of old, dead slave owners and the backs of the oppressed.

At some point in the lecture he quotes Swami Vivekananda speak about the Christian connection to colonialism. Ravi destroys the argument with one sentence. (Part 2 of 4…about 4 minutes in.) It was a pleasure to hear.

Yours in Christ, Dave Alexander

do the roses still grow wild?

I am accustomed to flat land.

Mountains are beautiful memories

I have learned to live without.

When I raise the lights you are

a dim place, a face fading.

Still how does one forget the stars in the galaxy,

untamed horses on run-away adventure

or murmuring nights of desire?

Do the roses still grow wild in your garden,

untended lovers or prolific lies.

“It is well for the heart to be naïve and the mind not to be”

Anatole France

Wachsen die Rosen noch wild?

Ich gewöhnte mich ans flache Land.
Die Berge sind schöne Erinnerungen.
Ich lernte, ohne sie zu leben.
Wenn ich das Licht heller mache,
versinkst du im Dämmerlicht, entschwindet dein Gesicht.
Doch wie kann man die Sterne in der Milchstraße vergessen,
ungezähmte Pferde auf Abenteuerreise,
oder die rauschenden Nächte der Begierde?
Wachsen die Rosen noch wild in deinem Garten?
Unbehütete Liebhaber oder fruchtbare Lügen.

“Es ist gut, wenn das Herz naiv ist, aber nicht der Kopf.”

Anatole France
