Is Truth Insulin or Ice-cream?

Have you heard someone say, "There is no absolutes. It's wrong for you, but it's right for me"?

Or perhaps, you've wondered if all of us are like blind men groping different parts of the elephant when it comes to issues like God, faith and truth.

What about "It doesn't matter what you believe as long as you're sincere?"

Different cultures have their own moral standards and faiths so we should not claim to 'monopolise' the truth, right?

What does the Bible say about all this?

If these questions sound interesting to you, let us invite you to the next Agora meeting...

Time: 2 pm
Date: 30 Jan 2005 (Sunday)
Venue: City Discipleship Presbyterian Church (Map:

The next topic, "Is Truth Insulin or Ice-cream?" deals with some of these issues and welcomes interaction and dialogue from participants.

Look forward to see you for a time of coffee and chat!

Sounds good - will 'Gregory' Lee Han Meng be doing the presentation?

The Hedonese said...

Yes, indeed... all the way from California

Ambassador M said...

Come on bros, I'll share my limited knowledge regarding the issue and facilitate the session. Hope we will have fun time talking about "ice cream & insulin".

I await to hear from master Han Meng! Some CF frens are visiting also.

Guys, does this mean that Han Meng is doing his thing this Wednessday instead?

The Hedonese said...

Nope, This Wed is strictly for Y Course ma! Han Meng may not be able to make it cos of CG badminton-and-evangelism thingy

And what I really hope to do is, get a group of lay Christians or pastors who are well-read in certain topics and give short primers, just to encourage young Christians (esp. college students) to think after God's thoughts.

Follow truth wherever it leads... In US, surveys show
that 80% of profesing Christian students come out of
college without their faith... and I believe it's
greatly due to our failure to address the intellectual
challenges to our faith.

Isn't "our faith to be child-like"?
(I understand faith to be dependent, humble etc. but never understood it as having a childish mind!)

In contrast, the Bible says 1 Corin 14:20

Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to
evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.
It is faith beyond reasons, and beyond our thoughts.

Interesting... I might be there if I got some time to spare after my church service. I like this blog. Some articles here just blew-up my mind :P

In His love,

One day we should experiment with "David Letterman style" of doing presentations, get John See and band to provide special effects for the punchlines and 'commercial breaks'.... Crazy interviews with local theologians with monologues on "Can angels can dance?"
