challenging secularism

I don’t know all that much about the president of Fance, Nicolus Sarkozy.Nicolas Sarkozy  But recently he challenged his country’s view on secularism and church-state relations.  He recently made an interesting comment which seems related to the basis of morality…

“Secular morality always runs the risk of wearing itself out or changing into fanaticism when it isn’t backed up by hope that aspires to the infinite.”

Without a moral code there is only chaos.  But what explains the uniformity of moral laws – French or otherwise?  Maybe the question isn’t so much, “what” but “who.”

    Secular morality and social systems are doomed to fail because we all want different things from life. It is interesting that Jesus is able to take all of our wants and needs and package them in a new born person.

    Nice blog!

    It is amazing what Jesus can do to and with such broken people. Thanks for the feedback.

re: the random-ness

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
