No Presupposition Without Interpretation

Now I'm thinking about the connection between presupposition and interpretation. No man can avoid those things. No man can neither deny their presupposition nor ignoring their interpretation. We are human and God created us are to be like Him. We have an ability to do interpretation and we have an undeniable presupposition.
Let me make you think.
Presupposition is a given things, yet the interpretation is a forming things. We are being given also being formed. The concept of "already and not yet" is deeply rooted in our nature. We are sinful nature, but we, the chosen people are being able to go deepen to the meaning of the salvation that is given also have to be work for (St. Paul's theology). Interpretation is a task from God to all human. We do interpret nature as science, we do interpret others as social studies. But our presupposition is extremely affecting our interpretation. Both of those things are forming each other. Who form our presupposition? Let God and just He himself can change our behavior on interpreting something. Keep the balance of interpreting either social studies or scientific method. Don't break the balance instead you break God's decree.

Ask: Why?

We often ask "why" in our life. The bitterness of our life sometimes force us to think "how unfair..."
We ought to feel that we were the saddest person in the world.
For me? Today is the day that God molds me. I've been hearing the word of God for a full-3-day. I couldn't expect that God tests me the day after I attend that convention.
Can you imagine how mad you are when you are waiting for around 6 hours for nothing? That is what I feel today in Immigration centre located in Jakarta...
I asked God "Oh God.... Why?"
Suddenly, I remember what I had been heard from the convention.. "God molds you in a very natural-way.. He has a greater plan than ours...... He know the best for His people....... Keep faith in Him... Never lost your faith, ask God for keep you safe in His hand..."
Surprisingly, I feel so calm... Just like never before... The power of the word is so strong that he could change the mood of hatred to a mood of flesh-heart...
Thus confirms me more about God as my center of my universe of thought..
Praise God!

Mid-Year Reflection

Half a year has just passed. What have we done in the past half year?
Did you done your "required" jobs?

Time waits for no one. No one powerful enough to stop the rolling of time.
"When" God started the rolling of time..

Time flies. Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us wants is more time… Time to stand up… Time to grow up…

According to the Ecclesiastes...

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.

So... What is time, anyway??
Are we responding properly to time?
"Time" can be the best teacher, also it can be the worst killer.

Psa 90:12  So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.

What should then we do?

What should then I do when I feel so freakin' depressed?...
Sometimes I try to encourage myself with so many positive thoughts...
At first it worked well... But after some periods, they filled my head like a gunpowder, formed a time-bomb which would explode any time...

They can't just keep filling my head... Positive thoughts are still way too anthropocentric.. So.....
How to maintain a good God-centered living in our life?

Let me answer it in a little uncommon way... To maintain a God-centered living, you should keep asking yourself whether you own your life or God owns your life....

Hard answer... It's seems impossible, especially for those who struggle with "behaviorism" and "super-hero syndrome" as their weaknesses... It demands a total submission.... But I pray for us, that God enables us to change...

God is too good to leave us dying...

Shifts Happen : Sh*ts Happen?

People are adrift crazily without category... Neither with a sense of cognitive nor a social consequence... Cursing is BLESSED and Blessing is CURSED... Don't ask when you see people hate others unreasonably... They hail cursing unconsciously...

But I believe... The Remnant remains... Even if they're battered and bleeding... Am I on The Remnant's side in the midst of Postmodernism that taken our soul to it's deep?

God, awake Your people, bless Your people... We believe that you are Thee... That never abandon yours...

Hence we can believe Your Word:
"The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.." - Exodus 14:14

I've just got another secret of life.. I name it: self-less method...

Here it says: "the less you think of your ego, the more you are able having a true joy in your life"...

On the past 2 days, I was thinking so hard about my ego... I were always underestimate someone easily and overconfidence about myself...

I couldn't be in this situation forever.. I had have to move on from it, because it matters so much on my relationship to others...

I knew that I must not think anthropocentrically... But for me, it was just a theory until furthermore I realized it's importance and it's significance for whom I love.....
I learned something... Love should be self-less... It demands all of your "altruism"..
Be aware, friends... Don't let your ego put you down! God helps you.. :)

Purpose of Life?

A quick thought suddenly stroke my mind. I saw so many people struggle with the purpose of their life and end with depression. Some of them 1) freaked out, 2) pretending not to feel it.

Which one are you qualified to?

Read 1st Corinthians 10:13...
No feel? Don't get the "spark" on reading that verse? Or just ignore it?

God always has the answer of all of human's wickedness...

John 13:27...

The scariest thing is when you don't realized that Satan is controlling you...

Ask for God's mercy...

Pray hard.. Do read your bible...

See but Not See... Irony...

My school just finished a half-day trip going to Kebun Raya Bogor. That is the garden located on Bogor, West Java.

It is a beautiful place, but for some of my students, it's a low-class garden. Yeah, I can accept their views for some extents. They're not getting used to go to garden. Moreover, I think that their lives have been stolen by their gadgets. So irony eh?

At the time they have so much money, they blind themselves by their gadgets.

God has given his wonderful creation not for got ignored, but to be appreciated by us...

Truth will set you free but gadgets will blind you.... Be careful...

Sunday All Day

Sunday always makes me interesting.
Starting the day with sunday service then go somewhere to take the refreshing.
After the service, me and my friend went to Chinese restaurant located at north Jakarta, we ate noodle there, it was delicious. Not of the best ever though... But it's still good..

After finised our lunch, we continued our journey to Lippo Kemang Village... It's the first-time for her.. We shared a lot of thought there... Spending around 3 hours... So much wisdom we shared... We was just talking without any expectation...

Hey, for some of you that keep insisting to have a purposeful chatting, you are such a half-hearted man... No need to do that.. It's so tiring man... You don't have to force yourself to maintain the flow of conversation... Can't you just keep the conversation go by itself??

After I drop her, I went to church.... Again? Yes... There'd a seminar held by my church... Inviting Dr. Lane Tipton... The seminar was so good... Reflecting on the Christian's center of theology, The Justification by Faith alone through Jesus Christ...

What we do will not affecting our justification... We are justified just because of God's grace...

So.. No man can go to God by presenting their good works... Don't be too self righteous... All is his grace...

Think it hard...

Life is Beyond Math

My friend shared a great illustration to me. My friend was considering between mathematician and a person.
"Mathematician said that 1+1=2. Yes it's true, mathematically. You have to answer it rightly to claim a right marks in our exam. But life is beyond mathematics...."
The conversation was getting deeper and more serious...
"When we ask a person who fall in love what is the answer of 1+1, random answer would come. For a broken-hearted persons, they will answer 0. But for a flourishing-persons, the answer will be infinity...."
Those sentences stunned me for a while... It seems so true and so touching...
But I realized that thought is still too superficial.. It's not biblically right....
Bible indicates that true couple should called to be one... 1+1=1... That's the truth... Seeking someone? Don't ask God whether he/she adds or subtracts your value... Both of those answers are wrong...
The true couple should be "does he/ she makes both of you ONE?"
Think it... Life is beyond Mathematics... Anyway, thanks for the sharing, friend :)

New Place on a New Month

I would like to share my first impression visiting Lippo Kemang located around South Jakarta.

For some of you, maybe unfamiliar with this place, it's relatively new. It's a lovely place.

I would like to fill my first coming here to the fullest. I won't shit my mind by thinking how much I waste my money here. The more you think of money, the more wrinkles you get on your face

What I do now is sitting with my friend on #Starbucks accompanied by Hazelnut Hot Chocolate.

Now I'm enjoying my time here. With a friend of mine, we've been chatting for around 2 hours long!

Some of you might think what I do now is wasting time carelessly.

But... I'll let you know, you who think too much of another's life, at the time you just wasting your own time. Better think of yourself rather than mine. :)

Life is so miserable when you worrying too much about money, bitterness, and anything pressed you. Just make your life enchanted!

God won't let you alone, He will accompany you. If He's too busy, He'll send you someone to accompany you. But keep it in mind that they're His.. :)

New Container

I just downloaded blogger application in my Android. And I found it make me easier to get in touch with you guys through my blog.
I hope the more I post, the more akso you getting used on reading my blog.
Sorry if there are some typos because I still on my adaptation in typing the virtual keyboard shown on screen. Enjoy!

Can't We Avoid Don'ts in Our Life?

In a proper essays, you'll hardly find that it begins with a negative clauses in the epilogue. "don'ts" are used to emphasize something that we shouldn't do, and we often avoid it. Don'ts are seem too offensive for some ppl.

So many people hate don'ts and trying to use the positive way of speaking or encouraging or giving someone advices

But when we ignore "don'ts" in our life, there will be a negative paradigm shift that will affects our generation.

We became heartless, NOT knowing some prohibitions, and we will live as what we want, because of NOT knowing what we must NOT do.

The age of darkness will soon come.
Don't underestimate don'ts in your life, or you'll waste your life.

Keep the balance in your life! God helps you through his word. Never leave bible reading habit or you'll never get the true meaning of life.

See His Story in Our Story

One thing that I want to share with you guys...

"No man can read the future, but everyone can read their past."

It is, a big deal for us to treat our mind properly. It will be never an easy way to limit ourselves, because we tend to treat ourselves as great as we can. Sometimes we try to force our future as well as our expectation.

It's not a bad thing for us having a dream. But shit happens when you create yourselves a "tangible" future.

If we keep continuing our "man-centered" future.. We will exhausted! 

I'd rather utter some question for us to think about....
One certain thing is we can't expect our future as tangible as we want..
On contrary, we also can't change our past...
And... For this present time. We don't have any certainty of what would happen "here and now"...

So, I think it's an impossible thing for us to rely ourselves on finding a better future or be in a good past..
There must be a bigger and a mightier aspects than us, sustaining our lives.

God exists. And he control the history...
He holds our lives, and He keep us safe in His hand. Whatever happen in our lives..

Sorrow? Happy? Sadness? Joy? Those are God's! 

Get a life, pal! Can't we just enjoy His story in our lives?!

Don't waste your life, dude.

Undeleting The Past

Hi! I'm back...
I choose to un-deleting my blog. I un-delete it because I think maybe sometime this blog will be useful for someone who are in depression and think to end "the life".

I realized that I'm one among others who have avoided and being able by God to face and succeeded my near-death experience through the bitterness of life and anything that pressed me or depressed me.

For those who are thinking to end your life, I'll give you some Biblical-based question.
Do you deserve heaven? Do you deserve God's grace? Are you righteous and painful enough to end your life??

Rom 3:10  as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one; "

Think it once again...

I'll be here.. I will do as best as i can to sustain the fall and keep "speaking" about God's Word that I have been experiencing until now.

God's Word is truth, relieving, and escalating my spirit and my soul.. So much..
Don't waste your life. Because if you do waste your life, you'll waste your after-life period.

Does heaven is real for you? Think it..hard..
