Here's the thing....

"The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..."-Jack Kerouac

Saving Truth (Blog #10)

We talked about saving truth during the last week of class, and I believe that everyones own "saving truth" defines the person that they are. What our saving truth is completely portrays the persona of us.

I believe that my own saving truth is a bi-fold- one is through my faith, and the other is through my beliefs towards socialism and capitalism. I am a follower of Christ, and truly believe in Christianity, and that Christ is my savior. That is something that I base my life around, by having good faith, which leads me to good works, and helps me lead my life. How I treat people, and how I react in situations, is based largely around the faith I have, and the community that I have around me through my church at Denton Bible. My faith is my saving truth, and is something that I should not deny telling others about.

"But in fact God has arranged the parts in the body, every one of them, just as He wanted them to be.”

Another part of my saving truth is my beliefs towards ethics, socialism and capitalism. I believe that as advocators of ethics, we should not cower in the face of corporations- instead, we should be the change. Instead of pointing fingers at others, perhaps we should point the finger at ourselves and become the ethical persona we want our company to be. Who are we to say that the world can't change? Who are we to fear that change? Who are we to claim that nothing can be done, and we are going to sit on our haunches and watch the world fade away? That's crap, and should not be tolerated. If we don't believe in ourselves, how can we believe in this field? I believe that my faith in God has enabled me to have faith in myself- faith to change the things that others don't want to.

I could go on and on about my own saving truth through faith, but this is the basis- the whole thing would be so many pages your eyes would get tired after reading only 1/3 of it. :)
