A BIT ON PSYCHOLOGY

by László Balogh

 

I think many of us have seen the famous movie “Good Will Hunting”. The story is about a young man (Will – Matt Damon), who is a math genius, very intelligent, yet he is incapable of certain social functions. The reason for that is that he was physically abused as a child by his foster father, which left him with a lot of emotional pain. As a result he carried a lot of guilt, shame and the blame for what he has become. A turning point in the story is when his psychologist

No, You’re Not Mad At God

by László Balogh

Truth is a very interesting thing. What is truth? Or better yet, what is your perception of truth? Those two can be a totally different thing actually. We usually don’t think about not being right, I guess we all think we’re right about most things. But when it comes to God, this should be a little different. What I mean is that you really have to know God very well to say that you are right about what He’s like.

The Law Of Attraction

THE LAW

 

A little while ago I’ve watched a couple of interesting videos about the law of attraction. Pretty much the first thing a speaker brought up was that we need to realize that our physical world is controlled by the metaphysical. It’s nothing spooky, it just means “beyond the physical”; the things you cannot see with your eyes. They explained that the core of the law of attraction is that you let your thoughts, beliefs and imaginations control your outside circumstances.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE

by László Balogh

 

I’ve seen this picture somewhere that said: “The question isn’t why a loving God would send somebody to hell. The question is: why would anyone choose hell over a loving God.” Now, I totally agree with the validity of this statement, but I know many people have a great problem with this too. They say: “What do you mean, I have to choose God or else I go to hell? That’s not choice, that’s dictatorship! I want to stay out of this whole thing, no God, no hell, nothing! I don’t choose either.”

Everybody likes presents, right?

by László Balogh

The grace of God is an incredible subject! There are not enough books in the world to express the fullness of it. God saved us from punishment by mercy and grace. Mercy purely means we don’t get the punishment that we deserve. Grace adds to it. By grace we get a bunch of good things we don’t deserve. Why did God do that? Why did He choose this method? Well, let’s take a closer look at it!

The Master Plan

by László Balogh

I actually didn’t believe in the existence of God till I was 17 years old. But somehow I always had a God-picture in me. I don’t know where I got it from, but I imagined, that if there is a God, He must be the “best and most and top of everything”. I don’t know if this is normal and everyone is like that, but that’s how it was for me. I think as people grow up and see, hear and experience things, that’s when this God-picture gets twisted somehow. We don’t understand why things are not the “best and most and top of everything”. I might get to touch on that in this article, but I wanted to start somewhere else. Continue reading The Master Plan

An Invitation To Eternal Life

by László Balogh

How often do we wonder if this world can ever get worse than it is? Of course life is also full of beauty, love and enjoyment, a lot of people are helpful and well-meaning. It’s not all bad, I know. But somehow there is always some evil, some worry, some insecurity that’s looming over us. We hear of wars, disasters, shootings, poverty, corrupt politicians, etc. and we wonder how this could be fixed. If there is a God, why doesn’t he intervene? The truth is that God has already intervened, when he sent Jesus to earth, as he taught and healed, and finally died for mankind. It may not seem to you that it helped a lot, since we still see all these bad things. Well, we still have to wait some time for Heaven where everything is going to be perfect, but we can start laying down the groundwork for it, here on earth already.

A Brave New Dystopia

By Chris Hedges, truthdig.com

The two greatest visions of a future dystopia were George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World.” The debate, between those who watched our descent towards corporate totalitarianism, was who was right. Would we be, as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive surveillance and security state that used crude and violent forms of control? Or would we be, as Huxley envisioned, entranced by entertainment and spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced by profligate consumption to embrace our own oppression? It turns out Orwell and Huxley were both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavement. Orwell saw the second.
