Being human

I feel like I learned something about being a christian this year. 

I thought I had special privileges... like being happier, being more blessed, being able to do the right things, being able to communicate with God, having a deity look over me all the time....

But then... all humans have that. 

The thing is that Christians have the responsibility to follow in Jesus' steps to make the world better. And Jesus was radical. It's hard to follow him because it means not doing normal stuff that everyone does.....

It's not about getting all sorts of perks like peace and joy... it's about bringing it to everyone.

Being a humanitarian outcast.. so weird...

randomly thinking of random things

Ties are totally random. They make no sense but everyone wears them. I wonder how a noose became fashionable.

Diamonds are the worse random thing. Some guy decides that this rock is valuable, makes people pay a million dollars for one, and now everyone wants one. What?!

I guess the king and queen of some countries are kind of random too. They don't have any power or special duties. They are just born into it. Just like that - and your face is printed on one hundred dollar bills all over the country. I wonder what that would feel like.

catch me if you can

i watched the movie Catch me if You Can and it got me thinking, what if the whole story was made up? If the guy Frank lied about being a doctor, pilot and lawyer, surely he could also lie about being a con man?

But if the whole story was a lie, it means that he didn't lie about being a doctor/pilot/lawyer, and that means he is not a good liar. What? I am confusing myself.

Maybe what I am trying to say is that, if someone is a good liar, and later he tells you his lies, his lies may also be lies? How do you know he is not lying about being a liar?
