I read now former Evangelical Theological society’s president Dr. Frank Beckwith‘s personal post on this matter with interest. I confess I was not too happy with a number of comments with lacked generosity. I must admit I do not understand why there are some who have such strong reactions to this matter.
I saw his latest book and was drawn to it yesterday … but I thought I’ll listen to this interview first.
An article by Dr. Amartya Sen based on the book.
“… A wise friend of mine recently warned of the danger of becoming a “successful failure,” an individual whose talents and drives led to a range of conspicuous accomplishments while one’s spiritual and psychological deficiencies led to eventual collapse of character and destruction of reputation.”
A wise friend indeed.
It’s nice to see a “church-blessing” (instead of church-bashing) for a change.
Great quote from Steve Jobs:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
and I like the closing quote:
“We’re here to put a dent in the universe. Otherwise why else even be here?”
Looks good .. will watch them later.
‘What comes to mind when you read the word “automatic”?’ Good question to start!
