Justifying Life

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th-century American essayist, lecturer, and poet

Life, Justified

Please Note: This article is a repost from our old blog – originally dated February 2007.

Well, we had a question from one of our new forum readers (Welcome to you all!) and decided to tackle the answer. First the question, which we suspect was asked partially in jest, at our expense: How does God justify life?

How indeed? Remember folks ask a foolish question, get a foolish answer. *wink, wink*

Okay not foolish, but instead intended for anything but fools. You need to have some level of spiritual integrity and a raised awareness to fully grasp the meaning of such high-minded and philosophical things. So here goes….

The ALL is made up of different parts, each with its own purpose, the way that you have arms and toes, a stomach and hair. The ALL has a portion that is called strength, a portion that is called weakness. It has both chaos and order. It is the twilight and the dawn. It contains both youth and age. These parts do not stop having their individual purpose just because they may be detached from the ALL or not in use by it for a time. Just as your arm, an upper body limb designed to move and lift for various reasons and purposes, still holds its purpose even when you are asleep and not using it, and retains its purpose even if you suffer an horrific accident and lose the arm. It is still an arm.

The ALL is … Continue reading →
