I Am Paul

Maybe it would be better to put it this way; I feel like Paul. I know my writing will never carry the same weight and although it is possible, I will most likely not end up in jail for my beliefs. I do not foresee public beatings, angry crowds attempting to rip me limb from limb nor do I anticipate martyrdom as the end of my story. Still, even more than my previous posts (I am Mary, Thomas, Samuel, Peter, Adam, Judas, The Rich Young Ruler ) I feel like I am Paul.

Until All Is Revealed

When I applied my mind to know wisdom and to observe the labor that is done on earth—people getting no sleep day or night— then I saw all that God has done. No one can comprehend what goes on under the sun. Despite all their efforts to search it out, no one can discover its meaning. Even if the wise claim they know, they cannot really comprehend it. Ecclesiastes 8:16-17 (NIV)

I Am The Rich Young Ruler

For those of you who know me, every part of the “rich young ruler” title is a lie! First, I am not rich. I will however, gladly give you some of my debt. Second, I am not young. I proudly proclaim to everyone that I am a grandfather 4 times over so no matter how young I appear, I am not young. Third, I am not a ruler. The closest I have gotten to a ruler is the straight edge we used in school. The one thing I can brag about is my ruler. In Canada a ruler is 30 units long unlike the American ruler which is only 12 units. Still, after all this I must admit that I am The Rich Young Ruler.

I Am Judas

Not a name most would like to call themselves but I am Judas. You may be thinking I am the other Judas, not Iscariot but the one mentioned in John 14:22 but that is not what I am saying. I am Judas, Judas Iscariot. In case you have not been following the “I am _______” series (I am Mary, Thomas, Samuel Peter and Adam) I want to assure you that I have not suffered some sort of mental illness that causes me to think I am anyone and possibly everyone other than Dave. I am Dave Peever but for this post I must state that I am Judas.
