You seem to have a healthy balance in your life when it comes to the internet and life away from the computer. You know enough to do what you want online without looking like an idiot (most of the time). You even have your own Yahoo club or online journal! But you enjoy seeing your friends and going out to enjoy life away from your computer.

Addicted ? Ha Ha ! Sometimes I think that coming to your blog is becoming a bad habit for me. (Cuz. I do it at work, not at home.)

Off topic and I shouldnt do this but... :
Here's is a tantalizing thought on the side, that I was think about last night at Starbucks:

[1] If I have faith [in God] that the mountain will lift, then the mountain will in fact, lift.

[2] However, the possibilty that the mountain will or would not have lifted remains a live possibility.

[3] So, therefore, if I have faith [in Jesus] that the mountain will lift, the possibility exists that the mountain will not lift.

The conclusion doesn't follow. Premise 1 is a conditional. If A then B. Premise 2 is simply a statement about what's possible. Possibly not B. That doesn't mean that I A occurs, it's possible that B won't. It may be that B is possible because A isn't guaranteed. Then all three of the following could be true:

I don't have the faith.
If I had faith, the mountain would move.
The mountain doesn't move.

In that situation, the premises of your argument are true but the conclusion false, which means the argument is formally invalid.

My general thought on mountain-moving is that it's not faith if it's not God-supplied. If someone has genuine faith that God will move the mountain, then God has supplied that faith, and the mountain will move. Some may have something subjectively much like faith, but faith is God-initiated. I could spend time finding scripture to support this, but anyone of relatively Reformed sympathies would agree, I think.

wha..ho no, I'm not taking this one. Balanced,eh?

But then...surprise, a discussion on faith. And mountains.

Perhaps faith as it is described here ( referencing a teaching of the Lord Jesus) is more a description of its force.

A force acts in a specific way.... the only way to truly speculate upon it is to prove it in experience.

Always the best policy with faith. Then the discussion is over, the speculations silenced.

I guess all that remains after that is awe.

It's not the faith that moves the mountain. Moving the mountain moves the mountain. Faith is what allows you to undertake so monumental a task as moving a mountain in the first place.
