Noticed ppl praying 2 "The Universe" instead of 2 GOD. BE CLEAR: If you want 2 address GOD don't talk 2 His handiwork. #Talk2Him

@hartramsey @KamiKaize Semantics. If God IS all and is in all, then how can anybody but God be The Universe?

@markchappelle @KamiKaize SEMANTICS? I can be IN my car or IN my house BUT that doesn't make me my car or my house!!!

@markchappelle @hartramsey God created the heavens and the earth. I consider the universe as part of the heavens..so its not him. God is God

@KamiKaize @hartramsey So if, instead of calling the name of Jesus, if someone calls Yeshua or Emmanuel instead, have they missed God?

@markchappelle @hartramsey God/Jesus is know by other names but in my opinion the name...universe is not one.

@markchappelle @hartramsey Psalm 8 ..he created the moon and the stars and placed them in the sky and even the angels...but none are him

@KamiKaize @hartramsey "The Universe" is not one of YOUR names for him. But it could be someone else's for the same God you worship. :)

Hart Ramsey @hartramsey

@markchappelle @KamiKaize Those are His names (Yeshua/Emannuel). But GOD never called Himself "the universe." Humanists did that.

@hartramsey @markchappelle I have to agree to disagree with you on that one Mark. God never called himself "The Universe."

05/07/2013 21:55:40 WIB
markchappelle @markchappelle

@KamiKaize @hartramsey I understand the disagreement. Truly. I dislike it b/c it feels like yet another unnecessary division among us. :(

Hart Ramsey @hartramsey

@markchappelle @KamiKaize Mark, research Secular Humanism & you'll see this is not semantics. It's a human attempt to eliminate GOD.

Kaize Adams @KamiKaize

@markchappelle @hartramsey I don't think its a division. I just don't define God and the Universe as one and the same.

This morning, @hartramsey told me to look up “secular humanism.” So I did. On Wikipedia, it's listed under the header “irreligion.”

Article says “an essential part of secular humanism is a continually adapting search for truth, primarily through science and philosophy.”

markchappelle @markchappelle

I feel like, as a Christian, I have to be on a continual search for truth. But not all people respect that kind of search.

I had a(nother) confrontation like that with my mother tonight. She doesn't understand what I'm searching for.

06/07/2013 15:20:03 WIB
markchappelle @markchappelle

As far as she's concerned, everything relevant has already been found. (This saddens me and makes it hard for us to communicate.)

markchappelle @markchappelle

As Christians, our unwillingness to leave the boundaries our communities place on us, keeps us from the people we're supposed to reach.

If the gospel is going to travel anywhere, somebody's got to be given permission to leave.

I feel held down. Boxed in. Chained, fettered, shackled. Oppressed. Ignored. Foreign. An alien. An Englishman in New York.

I write my blog, http://t.co/IbD11pEyBo, because I'm trying to reconcile the insular world of Christianity with the people stuck outside it.
