I feel that quote was made for me, thanks J.R. Tolkien!
I know J.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were good friends and discussed religion a lot. I truly appreciate those friends with whom I can discuss deep and historic subjects with, it keeps me educated and updated.
Jordan Peterson is still my favourite scholar and I really like this article about the future of Christianity, I think we’re looking at a revival from all kinds of directions. There’s so much ignorance and misunderstandings around Christianity these days, I can’t wait for the lies to be uncovered.
A few things I’ve been passionate about lately is full preterism, I believe everything in the book of Revelation has already been fulfilled. I also think that the new commandment Jesus gave in John 13 is the most important one. Our purpose is to spread Heaven (the Kingdom of God) here on Earth just like He did.
Easier said than done, but it’s a process to learn how to love like Jesus did. In this video I was reminded of how we are human beings, not human doings, and that God loves us for our being and not our doing. There’s so much validation in what we do these days it’s easy to forget that just like a newborn baby, we’re made to love and be loved just for being alive and present.
Right now I’m on my way to Stockholm for a few days, then I’m off to Hofors over the next weekend to visit some Brazilian friends. If nothing else shows up I’ll probably fly to London after that to visit some more friends.
