On IT, under the pseudonym of Isaiah Thomas (the site author animated this propria persona); these digitized images captured the wayward moments, onward, the stilled framed shots continued to slide (IT was journaled in the life of the author).
Personal beliefs: The Diamond, is, the symbolic inscriber most multifaceted. IT enjoyed these writing exercises to develop personal expression. And though IT loves writing exercises, the overuse of judges becomes detestable; expressions of punctuation for the most part: when to breathe, pause for however long of duration(s), and whether to fully stop here. Having learned the simplistic or complex systems of beliefs (the simplistic oftentimes complicates what matters to others least).
Theological: Protestant (5 Solas), catholic = Nicene/Creed (early ecumenical creeds), Evangelical, Systematic = Reformed; therefore, Calvinist, Covenant (Baptism), and Amillennialism (but not limited to, or, in other words Semper Reformanda).
Religion: Other religions speak of Jihad. The Jihad often brings about negative connotations; because, most were overcame by thoughts of “Corporate Jihad” against, corporate enemies, which involved reciprocal or vindictive notions of physical violence. To others, Jihad can also mean to strive against the flesh, or the World. IT intentionally used Jihad in ITs description to thrust forward convictions, and severity of the battles or “warring” against either identifiable entities. Whoever loves the World, the love of the Father is not in them – a single line for consideration, consider how much the Love of the Father means to each individual as well any corporate bodies: family/church/community/state/nation. Now the simplistic: “Being” what was yesterday died before this morning. On one hand what was yesterday can be subjected to personal rejection today. What was the DNA for today? Everything else observed was either in this moment or based on historical hearsay. “Historian,” which lended the most credibility (see the below notations on the subject of logical fallacies)? On the other hand ignoring true history without personal criticism/scrutiny through introspection or self-examination may lead to behavioral patterns of repetition sometimes negative and sometimes positive appearing as curses or blessings.
Spirituality: Enjoyment lately comes by way of reading books outside the Protestant’s 66 acceptable books of the bible. IT delighted in the Gospel of Thomas arguably Gnostic for the author of the works dedicated it under the name of the Apostle Thomas; unlike other Gnostic works embraced Soli Deo Gloria (perception) of which the crucifixion was not mentioned the focus instead was placed post resurrection upon the tendered life of Jesus Christ. In application “learning” Jewish Mysticism and Kabbalah presents daily spiritual exercises. The book of Enoch too lately became of personal interest. A question in which IT mused after reading this book was whether such preference as the very personal G-D in the Garden of Eden was preferred or whether the distant impersonal G-D was other than undesirable (not suggesting either perspective was ours to make). To be lifted up above worldly matters (demiurge) and cease engagement to further them greatly appeals to me most today. Then again, “whom shall I send?” See favorite book.
Pleasured by the fundamental insights offered in Buddhism (no longer practicing after raised in various schools for near twenty years).
Special Mentors: In memory of childhood adolescent teachers and mentors: Master Sakimaki (Master of Shotokan the highest dan from Japan), Dr. Lauber (Master of Taekwondo), Masters Lee (from Korea both of them Masters of Taekwondo). These men were pivotal in the life of IT from the unripened age of 3 1/2 until the militarily serviced age of 18, and thereafter discharged military services. These men raised IT from immaturity to young maturity. Thank yous Masters for your scholarships and the exampled lives which were lived. Much honor and respect for the services rendered in our spirited cherished memories.
Favorite book: Isaiah (whether or not a single author or “school” of prophets had written the sixty-sixty chapters contained in it). The book of Isaiah so accurate many claimed the book was written after the life of Immanuel. The discovery and dating of the Dead Sea Scrolls put the arguments of the critics to rest.
Favorite commentators of the past to present times: Barclay, Henry, Calvin, Van Til (Presuppositional Apologetics), Grudem (Systematic Theology), Gill, Friedman, and Rashi. And who could ever forget Wilson! when made into the island of desertion?
Favorite Heavenly Creature: Seraphim for the concern in which they involved themselves only entailing true Worship. IT prefers to chop the tails off of any other undesirable creatures (the false prophets reporting back or gossiping).
Favorite Angel: The Angel of the Lord: Numbers 22 “The angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn in his hand… . The angel of the Lord said to him…. . I would have killed you…. .”
Favorite personas: Isaiah/Thomas which pointed to Immanuel.
Notes: Of the living IT stressed the importance of honoring elders as well Pastors at his personal community church at this time. Since ITs personal views today stretch’d the “orthodoxy” of what is generally acceptable by most members of the church “I” refrain from names of the living to not cause undue criticism, persecution, or to lower the esteemed reputations based on negative associations. Just to note heresy and heterodoxy simply conveyed the lack of “adherence” to the degree of conviction for the majority of acceptable doctrines or “opinions” of beliefs. Perhaps today exists an overemphasis by the majority of modern interpreters (offices and the interpretation of the Catholic church) let alone on memorization (what was historically stated so many times already throughout the logical extensions of Apostolic doctrine time and time again) rather than personal discovery? Interestingly, a logical fallacy exists among the logical fallacies: Argumentum ad Populum. The emphasized personal accountability and responsibility for the way that in which this lives the truth was made by IT.
