The name of Jesus made me recoil in anger. Oh, I was OK with a certain range of "live and let live," but I was also in a war against stupid. "Live and let live" meant to keep your religious practice in the closet. While Freud considered the Christian faith pathological, I considered it applied cultural phobia, and it was not welcome in my classes.
There was a time when there was no time,
When darkness reigned as king,
When a formless void was all that there was
in the nothingness of eternity,
The names of God in Isa 9:6 are familiar to most of us.
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace.
But have you ever really unpacked it and felt the depth and passion of the verse?
