A day late, but I have a good excuse

So I really am going to attempt this 365 day blogging thing. You might have noticed though that this, my first post for 2008, is happening on the 2nd. You’d think if I were to take this thing seriously I’d have posted yesterday. Allow me to explain.

  1. 365 days is a lot. By missing the first day I am sending a message to myself that says “dear self, don’t stress about this. in fact, don’t even do it.”
  2. I was basically in airports all day yesterday. There was wifi, but since I don’t have a VPN to go through I wasn’t about to login to my blog on an insecure network.
  3. I could have blogged when I got home, but I was too tired to think.
  4. I finally finished Mere Christianity. Oh wait, this isn’t a reason.

I really did finish the book though. It took me forever. I blow through most novels pretty quickly, but books like Mere Christianity are slower reading.

So the book is amazing. I had plenty disagreements throughout the book, but overall it was awesome. Most of my disagreements came from differences in beliefs surrounding the nature of God. I believe God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost to be 3 distinct individuals (though one in purpose and everything else), while most of Christianity believes them to be one being with three personalities (C.S. Lewis calls it the “Three-Personal God”). If you’re curious about my belief in the Godhead click here to read about it. If you want to learn more about Christianity I heartily recommend you get Mere Christianity.

Oh, and Happy New Year!
