The Gifts of the Holy Spirit: A Pathway to Divine Fulfillment

The concept of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, as outlined in the New Testament, is a profound testament to the intricate and transcendent relationship between humanity and the divine. These gifts are not merely symbolic tokens; they are transformative powers that enable individuals to transcend their ordinary limitations and align themselves with a higher purpose. To truly grasp the magnitude of these gifts, one must delve into their biblical foundations and understand their psychological and spiritual implications. In 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, the Apostle Paul provides a detailed enumeration of these gifts: “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish betwee

A World Without God

From the very start of everything, if there is no God, then we all have existed by chance.  We all just happen to be very lucky that all those random events.  If our world started by chance then it will also likely end by chance making living life really meaningless.

All the harmony that exists in the universe are all judged as a product of luck and of chance just because a few humans are so arrogant to not realize that their knowledge and understanding of things are very limited and yet they act as if they are definitely sure of what they are babbling about.


If the entire knowledge of everything in the universe would be as large as our oceans, the knowledge of the most intelligent human would probably fit only a 2 litre bottle.  This is why I find most of them arrogant because they seem so sure with the so little knowledge that they hold.

I am sure that the men of science during Galileo Galilei's time were sure that the Earth was the centre of the universe or that the earth was flat that they even resulted to Galileo's excommunication.  Today, we have scientists claiming things with certainty but we still obviously don't know what's definitely beyond Pluto or even what's in the deepest parts of our own oceans.  We are even struggling with Covid19 and its new variants. We still don't have a cure for cancer.  If science was so sure of their capabilities then we shouldn't be scrambling now and what if another variant comes along?


Love is no more than lust

 

Sacrifice becomes meaningless and being good doesn't make sense

Why would a female endure 9 months to bring someone new into the world and then sacrifice for the next 18 years to make that new person to be a responsible unit of society with some male that she may fight with for those same number of years for various reasons.  Why would that new human, when reaching adulthood show the least respect to the mum and to the dad that raised him?  He or she can treat them as he/she wishes.

Why would anyone try to help anyone?  Life would be reduced to a meaningless rat race and a me-first attitude is the only way that is acceptable.  There will be no true friendships and no true relationships as the mindset of everyone is that he or she just gets his or her own needs and wants fulfilled and no one else's.

Happiness in a world without God is solely personal and selfish which in contrast, in a world with, deep and meaningful happiness is about making your loved ones happy.

A world without God is a world where pride, lust, anger, gluttony, sloth, envy and greed will thrive.  It is a world that I don't wish to live in.  It is a world that I don't wish my children, family and friends to live in.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
