Descartes talks about God as if God is infinite because he radiates out in every direction. Descartes imagines that he himself is perfect and has the perfect qualities of God.

This is exactly the case for John in A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. As stated at the very beginning of the book, Owen is the reason John believes in God, and it’s because it helps John make sense of everything that happens that doesn’t seem possible. The things Owen does and the things he knows prior to them happening are only possible if there is some higher power guiding Owen’s life. Thus, when Owen knows when his life is going to end and what he needs to do leading up to it, John can’t help but believe Owen has some sort of connection with God.

Jim sacrifices his fidelity when he covers Pap’s face for Huck, sacrifices his sleep for Huck’s rest, and he sacrifices his freedom for Tom’s health.
(Jami). Heroes do amazing things every day, they are constantly inspiring us to become better versions of ourselves; however, you rarely hear the heroes brag about their accomplishments.

Introduction: As part of a prophetic community, we have come to realize that there is a clear distinction between someone who loves God and someone who lives like Jesus. A person who lives a holy lifestyle and seeks to do good to their neighbors, and loves God (of course), is a person that loves God. These kind of people are common, and really great to have around. By no means do I think they are bad people. Then there are the other set of people who are willing to live their lives sacrificially; their lives will actually mimic the life of Jesus.
I am sure you have heard the old adage that “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”, however, I do have a very strong faith in believing with scripture “With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible” (Matt. 19-26).
