Men spends their lives in anticipations, in
determining to be vastly happy at some point
or another, when they have time.

But the present time has one advantage
over every other: it is our time.

~Charles Colton

Well, I tried so hard to settle down
but, the Angel of Destruction keeps houndin' me all around

But I know in my heart
the leaves are shining in the sun
That we never really parted

Oh, help me, Lord
Please, help me, Lord, yeah,yeah,yeah
Help me to help myself
Help me to help myself

They say the Lord helps those who help themselves,
So I'm asking this question in the hope that you will be kind,
cause deep down I know
the leaves are shining in the sun,

Oh, help me Lord,
Please, help me Lord, yeah,yeah,yeah
Help me to help myself
Help me to help myself


-John Lennon




From what I have read, this was one of Lennon's last songs he wrote and recorded.

I believe, again from what I have read, that Lennon became a Christian not long before he was murdered.

The above sentiments seem to contradict those expressed in the song 'Imagine'.

He was a complicated man, and it's entirely possible that he held contradictory opinions. Most intelligent people do, from my experience.

If we call a man a Christian doctor, deep sea diver, or dogcatcher, we'd expect that he did his work the best he could, maybe even with special care for excellence. When we ask if someone is a Christian writer/director, we might become suspicious that he was trying to spread not simply the love God has given him, but his own theories about God and that love. I studied theology; I have many theories. But I believe in none of them. I believe that the death of Jesus of Nazareth opened a door to love and life that are, quite literally, a union with God. I don't understand it, but Jesus didn't ask for my understanding. He just said "Follow me," gave up his life, and rose from the dead. So I try to follow. I'm not trying to spread my dogma. I'm trying to live my experience that God loves me, and the only way I can follow is by loving others.

I tell stories of love. People ask me why I make war stories, but what I make is love stories, and stories of war can put love in perspective: What do you love enough that you would lay down your life for it? How do you gain life by losing it? Secretariat is especially exciting because we ask those questions in a context without physical violence, in a way that a people of all ages can consider in a direct, personal, and exciting way.


~writer/director Randall Wallace, from the Christianity Today interview October 2010

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

I don't think there were scribes writing anything down following him around.

I think what we call 'the scriptures' were written by people with an agenda to set up an organization
long after any person that those writings are based on was gone.

Overall, I'd have to ditto what deep said.

I just saw that for the first time the other night. Appropriate choice.

I already know about the Celts religious origins of what we now call Halloween. Some of the pumkin pics were a bit funny, though.

Want to know how trick or treating started? It had nothing to do with the Celts.

Pippin: "I didn't think it would end this way..."

Gandalf: "End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path
...one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back,
and all changes to silver glass...and then you see it."

Pippin: "What? Gandalf? See what?"

Gandalf: "White shores...and beyond. The far green country under a swift
sunrise."

Pippin: "Well, that isn't so bad."

Gandalf: "No....no, it isn't."


~From the Film The Return of the King
based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien
