Dogma

Dogma

My dogma comes from The Bible. Many seek to tear it apart, claiming that it is contradictory and full of errors. In my life, I have found that most of these people have not studied The Bible, not even reading a single version of the Bible. For the past 10 years, I have read many versions and studied it through various sources.(unfortunately I cannot understand the original languages) My efforts have lead me to much wisdom and understanding, but far from where I hope to be. Indeed there are many truths within this great book and I believe it is The Word of God. One of my favorite movies is Devil’s Advocate and it portrays our legal system in a way that parallels what is happening in many of our courts. As a scientist and physician, I question everything, so I encourage others to do the same. Don’t accept anything as dogma until you have thoroughly investigated, but don’t discount anything without that same level of scrutiny.

Justice

6C755311-B288-4452-B77A-168A3691E319As my son started Law School today, I am reminded how convoluted our legal system has become. It seems that justice is often compromised by the process. Since ancient Biblical times, man’s Law has been corrupt. There were no good judges in the Northern Kingdom and many were not good in Judae. I pray that my son will always seek the truth and that justice will be served.
