Another TED talk

I have previously posted a couple of links from TED.
Here's another one, a very short one.

This talk reminded me of Genesis 11 event where God confused all the languages of the earth, and Acts 2 where people from different languages were able to communicate freely of God's truths among themselves.

I'm not opposed of learning English, or working together to address world-wide problems. But to believe that we can solve those problems ultimately by our efforts? Somebody's forgetting the real cause of the problems, sin. And those sinners, us, people, and yes, you.

I will continue to work and be useful for others. I will participate in improving the quality of human lives, and help those in need. Yet, my heart's confession is, I desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. (Heb. 11:16 part)

I am poor and needy, but God is great!

Psalm 70
Make haste, O God, to deliver me!
O LORD, make haste to help me!
Let them be put to shame and confusion who seek my life!
Let them be turned back and brought to dishonour who delight in my hurt!
Let them turn back because of their shame who say, "Aha, Aha!"
May all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you!
May those who love your salvation say evermore, "God is great!"
But I am poor and needy; hasten to me, O God!
You are my help and my deliverer; O LORD, do not delay!

The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbour's glory should be laid on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken. It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you can talk to may one day be a creature which, if you say it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare.
- by C. S. Lewis, from The Weight of Glory, p.45

We have many myths about immortal beings who are above and beyond us. But do you realise that we, humans are, in fact, immortals? The only difference among us will be whether we will be one day like Jesus the one and true God, the most glorious, or eternally judged and condemned to be separated from Him and remain as the most damned creature of all for eternity.

I love the LORD.

What shall I render to the Lord
for all his benefits to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation
and call on the name of the Lord,
I will pay my vows to the Lord
in the presence of all his people.

- Psalm 116:12-14
