Man is inherently sinful for not being like God, because humans exist.

I'll just leave this here:

For, if God is, he is necessarily the eternal, supreme, absolute master, and, if such a master exists, man is a slave; now, if he is a slave, neither justice, nor equality, nor fraternity, nor prosperity are possible for him. In vain, flying in the face of good sense and all the teachings of history, do they represent their God as animated by the tenderest love of human liberty: a master, whoever he may be and however liberal he may desire to show himself, remains none the less always a master. His existence necessarily implies the slavery of all that is beneath him. Therefore, if God existed, only in one way could he serve human liberty — by ceasing to exist.

I am not quite sure what to make of books from visions. I'm not knocking it, I just like reads that are more historical, more philosophical in nature.

The only objection I have to this is that people who are medically defined as retarded are not necessarily stupid enough to buy into Christianity.

It is highly philosophical.



Yes, indeed! We should all strive to be more like Him. He is perfection, and He has called all of us to be perfect (which, of course, we cannot attain on our own strength). It is the struggle--the journey--that forms our character. Let us be benevolent; let us be merciful; let us forever learn, for, since the Divinity is infinite, there is always more to know of It. We can never reach the end of knowledge because we can never reach the end of the Divinity.

When the infant Jesus was born, He was temporarily transfigured (meaning He appeared to His Mother in a glorified, non-terrestrial form), and Sts. Michael and Gabriel held their God before Her. Jesus said, "Be like me." And that was it; then He didn't talk again until normal human children start to talk.

That story blew me away. "Be like me." He said that to His Mother, who was and still is, by the grace of God, perfect. How much more, then, do His words apply to me, who is grievously imperfect!
Everything about Christianity is philosophal, in the true since of the word. It is the love of wisdom.

He are two quotes I think are food for thought.

Quote:
Wisdom is a right understanding, a faculty of discerning good from evil, what is to be chosen and what rejected; a judgment grounded upon the true value of things, and not the common opinion of them. -- Wellins Calcott
Quote:
Wisdom, in biblical terms, is not simply the accumulation of information. Rather, it encompasses the practical knowledge of how to regulate one's relationship with God, prudence in dealing with others, judiciousness in the handling of circumstances and skill or expertise in the application of knowledge to the diverse areas of life. Wisdom is such an important theme in Scripture that in the book of Proverbs the very voice of God is personified as wisdom, and Christ himself, in Paul's letters, is described as the one in whom are hid all treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
