Quote from my book

The ideal man as I think, however, is a woman. So the ideal man is the ideal woman, she is the prototype of humans. And though the ideal woman is the ideal human, this does neither mean that females are superior to men nor that males are in any way worse than females. Of course,Continue reading “Quote from my book”

The different layers of my Judeo-Buddhist philosophy

My Judeo-Buddhist philosophy tries to connect the wisdom of Judaism and its monotheist God with the wisdom of Buddhism, teaching the need for enlightenment. Both, Judaism and Buddhism are actually very closely related in content. Jewish and Buddhist philosophy are bound to the respective religions of course, but religion and philosophy always share a closeContinue reading “The different layers of my Judeo-Buddhist philosophy”

Raising awareness for Tokophobia and looking at potential root causes

I think that we do not pay enough attention to fears in today’s society: We are “programmed” to work in everyday life, so there is no place for weakness or fear. But in recent times with all the geopolitical conflicts, wars, climate change, political and social disruptions, how can we ignore that the world isContinue reading “Raising awareness for Tokophobia and looking at potential root causes”

The dilemma with testimonies and the chances behind them

Today I want to deal with a tricky question. When we hear testimonies of people who saw miracles and found to God, we can assume two possibilities: either the story is true and therefore someone witnessed God and shares his message; or second, we doubt this story, because of course it is in the interestContinue reading “The dilemma with testimonies and the chances behind them”

“Because God loves us …” – a simple but important fact which we forget quite often nowadays

“Every day we have to obey rules and laws. There are government laws, and regulations, religious laws, and rules where we work. Schools have many rules. There are traffic rules, and even rules about borrowing money from a bank. Without rules and laws our society would be ruined and there would be much suffering. BecauseContinue reading ““Because God loves us …” – a simple but important fact which we forget quite often nowadays”

Christians should not see Karl Marx as their enemy

Many devout Christians nowadays hate Karl Marx and try to blame him for religious persecutions of the 20th century.

Arguments for God as inspiration for considering and reconsidering God’s existence

He has shed the blinders of an unconscious materialism.” Peter Kliemann: Glauben ist menschlich – Argumente für die Torheit vom gekreuzigten Gott. Stuttgart: Calwer Taschenbuchverlag, 2019, p. 26 (English translation mine.) Kliemann makes anContinue reading “Arguments for God as inspiration for considering and reconsidering God’s existence”

The desire for purity

Fill the whole heart with the words of God. They are the living water, quenching your burning thirst. They are the living bread from heaven. […] As we meditate upon the perfections of the Saviour, we shall desire to be wholly transformed and renewed in the image of His purity. […] The Bible was notContinue reading “The desire for purity”
