Practical Reasoning

I want to suggest in this week’s spotlight that it is neither unscientific nor irrational to hold spiritual beliefs. Indeed, I intend to go further and suggest that it is the only rational way to live. To that end, let’s examine the nature of reason. There are two general types of reason. Philosophically speaking, practical reason is the use of reason to decide how to act. It contrasts with theoretical reason, often called speculative reason, which is the use of reason to decide what to follow. Theoretical reason tries to assess the way things are. Practical reason decides how the ...

Perception and Life’s Stressors

In today’s spotlight I would like to discuss the relationship between perception and the stressors in our lives. Whenever I ask someone about the stressor in their life there are certain answers that are common to almost everyone. That is, their job, money, the children, finances, misunderstandings, and money once again. Oh, there are also those habits we want to break, the weight we want to lose, issues around health and wellness, and so forth—but it seems for most people the daily stressors are all wrapped up in the job, family, and money. Why These Stressors? Think about that for ...

Injustices

In today’s spotlight I want to turn to injustices. Webster defines injustice this way, “lack of fairness or justice; an unjust act or occurrence; the quality or fact of being unjust; inequity; violation of the rights of others; unjust or unfair action or treatment; an unjust or unfair act; wrong.” How do we correct an injustice? Jason Van Dyke was sentenced to nearly 7 years for murdering Laquan McDonald. Mr. Van Dyke was the first Chicago police officer in decades convicted of murder for an on-duty shooting. He shot Laquan 16 times in 2014. Is less than seven years imprisonment ...

Changing World: Changing Beliefs

In this week’s spotlight I wish to ask the question: What if everything you believed was wrong? Pause for a moment, and ask yourself, “What if the manner in which you piloted your life was constructed from error, false beliefs, groundless foundations, incorrect assumptions, and so forth?” What would that mean to you, to how you live, to what you prioritize, with whom you associate, etc.? Old Beliefs There are many things that we think and believe that time tends to lay bare as undeserving of our investment in their veracity. Take for example the beliefs of many in our ...

The Power in Humility

In today’s spotlight I want to approach the idea of humility through the back door, if you will. Over the holidays I discovered a TV that I found enjoyable, albeit irreverent. The series is called Lucifer. In the series, Lucifer, played by Tom Ellis, has the ability to look you straight in the eye and know your every weakness, every sin. Think about that for a moment. Our Errors Imagine that you are in the presence of some being who knows your deepest darkest secrets, your every transgression—thought and deed. Not only does this being see everything about you—you suddenly ...

Wining and Losing

In this week’s spotlight I would like to discuss the idea of winning. It seems today that there are many who discourage winning for everyone is a winner. Now the idea is applaudable for it is designed to encourage people to participate who might not otherwise. As such, schools across the country, by way of example, often reward mediocre effort. Real Life The problem with this strategy is real life. In real life the best candidate wins the job, the most attractive wins the beauty contest, the best grade point earns the scholarship, the best athlete goes on to play ...
