Paxadoxes - Part 1

And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” - Exodus 34:6,7

"forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished;"

What could it actually mean? There are many paradoxes in bible which leave me confused and this one of it. What could God actually mean by this?

He might be saying I am a merciful, loving, forgiving God, but I am also as serious as I can be in the way I handle sin. 

I am not sure. I am just thinking out loud. There is so much i don't understand in the bible.

He forgives yet he doesn't forgive!

Misunderstood Jesus

Hello to everyone (if there still is anyone) who is aware of this blog after all this time! I apologize for leaving so suddenly.

Someone told me that it only takes one person to keep hope alive in others, and that is the greatest thing I could accomplish. So i want to affect that one person and keep their hopes alive.

When Jesus walked this earth, people often misunderstood his words. When he died on the cross, no one, not even his close disciples realized that he was dying for their sins. He died as the most misunderstood person.

Recently, i have noticed everyone seems to know Jesus. But some how Jesus remains that most misunderstood person.

We need people who would strive to understand Jesus. We need people whose only purpose in life would be stay with Jesus and listen to him and understand him.

As i read the gospels, i find that the words of Jesus shocking and confusing at times. His stories are hanging without end. His questions were his answers.

I think its time to stop pretending that we know this Jesus in and out and get back to his words with fresh eyes.

By understanding Jesus, you would understand life for He is Life.

Believing a Different Story

In Mathew 28, we see about two groups who witness the resurrection, the women and the soldiers. Both see the angel, both see the rollin...
