From my journal written back in 2001:
Tertullian: I believe because it is impossible.
Jews: God’s people, yet most persecuted.
Christ: Fully man, full God. A king with no material kingdom, no army. Innocent of any crime, but crucified. Message of peace and nonviolence, but came to bring a sword and assaulted the moneychangers.
Trinity: How can you have one God in three distinct persons?
Major heroes: Terribly flawed. Moses, David, Peter, Saul/Paul
Christ: Virgin birth. The meek shall inherit the earth. Blood that cleanses. Faith like a mustard seed moves mountains.
Paul: I do what I do not want to do.
Christ: Life after death. Total defeat to win total victory.
