Food for thoughts...

Compiled by Joe Fernandez
REALITY does not exist. Or does it?

What exists are illusions which appear as reality.

Is protein, for example, reality or a fleeting glimpse of something in transition? It's actually carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and sometimes sulphur and phosphorous coming together.

All elements are actually from hydrogen.

Move before hydrogen and then you have plasma etc.

So, where's the reality?

If people believe that Jesus is the son of God, then that's reality just as protein is "reality".

The "evidence" of protein can be seen in the food test, using Biuret agent, for protein. Blue will change to pink-purple, indicating the presence of protein.

Focus on the Big Picture instead of driving yourself cuckoo.

The Bible, the Word of God, is not about "evidence" but all about relationships, just like the Constitution.

Unlike the Constitution which is based on punitive measures and compensation, the Bible is based on the concept of love.

The Bible is all about the relationship between God and a Chosen People (to spread the Word of God); between God and individuals; and between individuals.

God said: "If you love me, you will keep my Commandments."

God also said: "Love your neighbour as you love yourself."

Love means forgiveness.

Unless our sins are forgiven, we cannot enter the Gates of Heaven.

God will not forgive us our sins unless we first seek the forgiveness of those we have wronged and unless we forgive those who have wronged us.

When Jesus was asked: "Master, how many times must I forgive my brother?", he replied: "If thy brethern asks for forgiveness 77 times, forgive them 77 times."

This Judeo-Christian tradition can be found in our Constitution.

The Bible led the way and continues to lead the way for civics, ethics, morality and law.

The Constitution is all about the relationship between a State and a people (public law: constitutional law, administrative law); between a State and individuals (public law: criminal law); and between individuals (private law: Law of Contract etc).

In criminal law, it's the state that prosecutes.

In other areas, it's up to the parties concerned to commence action in Court or forgive the other side or enforce Judgments in their favour.
