Chesterton once wrote, “There are only two kinds of people, those who accept dogmas and know it, and those who accept dogmas and do not.” And it would be true to say that the original goal of this blog was to write, share, and publish articles that helped distinguish the difference. But even during my initial motivation to create such a blog, I understood the impenetrable nature of such a vast and ambiguous goal. This blog requires a new dedication.
As time has passed, I have quickly realized two things: first, how my writing is expressed is so utterly dependent upon my company and the books I am reading; the second is that my interests are the source of my problems. Speaking to a respected man that was giving me advice on goals I should pursue said, “You sound like a man who wants to date a new woman every week. Why not just pick one and do well with her?”
Almost a year since that phone call, and a year contemplating that advice, I have begun to understand his wisdom, but only to the extent that I am still finding interest in any subject I have given the respect of my full attention. Until I one day fully understand his wisdom, I, as a current graduate student of theology and philosophy, dedicate my blog to writing, sharing, and publishing articles that capture my fancy and express the truths I have found neglected in the places I have found them.
