  • Personal Philosophy

    “Three passions, simple but overwhelmingly strong, have governed my life: the longing for love, the search for knowledge, and unbearable pity for the suffering of mankind." -Russell

    ...he's already made it plain how to live, what to do, what GOD is looking for in men and women. It's quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor,be compassionate and loyal in your love,And don't take yourself too seriously—take God seriously - Micah 6:8 (MSG).

    ...committed himself to studying the Revelation of GOD, to living it, and to teaching Israel to live its truths and ways - Ezra 7:10 (MSG).
