“Nevertheless, many even of the authorities believed in him, but for fear of the Pharisees they did not confess it, so that they would not be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God.”

Though he had done so many signs before them, they still did not believe in him, so that the word spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:
“Lord, who has believed what he heard from us, and to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?”
Therefore they could not believe. For again Isaiah said,
“He blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, lest they see with their eyes, and understand with their heart, and turn and I would heal them.”
Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory and spoke of him.
So the crowd answered him, “We have heard from the Law that Christ remains forever. How can you say that the Son of Man must be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?” So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going. While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.”
When Jesus had said these things, he departed and hid himself from them.

A Christian Leader Who Doubts
Today I was reading about a Christian leader who has doubts. It’s inherent in his personality. He second guesses himself about everything, even small things. It’s his nature to want to get everything right. He likes to avoid mistakes. So he has this part of him that wells up inside and questions. He has even doubted his faith in Jesus. That’s kind of amazing because he’s a big player in Christian circles, yet he’s struggled with serious doubts about his faith. Continue reading
Inspiration for this short passage of fiction was drawn mainly from three different sources: James Joyce’s famous short story, The Dead, Luke 11:5-13, and my and Kathy’s personal experiences caring for mom during the last nine months of her battle with Lewy Body Dementia. Some readers try to read too much into a work of fiction such as the one found below. I thank you in advance for not being one of those readers. (Did I mention–it’s fiction.) Continue reading
