SOAP - Week 1: Sirach


This is a wonderful blog, but I'm having trouble linking to it.  I have to learn how still.  SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application, and Prayer.

S - "Heaven's height, earth's breadth, the depths of the abyss:  who can explore these?"  Sirach 1: 3

O - What would we do if we knew the answer to everything?  There is so much beauty in our world as a gift from God that we have the opportunity to feel the grandeur of wonder and awe about.  Have you ever heard someone talk as if they knew everything?  Does it hurt your ears?  Don't worry if it does because you may be normal.  Oftentimes, Science is the source that is 'used as a crutch' to bring about false situations to lead others astray.  Science and Religion should compliment each other and work together to bring the realities of our world into better focus.

A - When others speak as if they know everything, do not encourage their boasting but "take it with a grain of salt."  Let them speak if they must, but we should not let them use our system of laws to force their outlandish ideas on others.  Be active politically when you know someone is trying to claim they have knowledge of the unknown just to establish monetary business effects in society to support their cause.

P - My prayer is for leaders everywhere to believe that truth and beauty are found with the realization that God is the Author of all life, and therefore must be looked to in establishing just scientific and business practices that uplift the traditional family which God designed.
