Coincidence? I think not.

What would you ask or tell one of your favorite authors (whether or not she/he is still living now) if you had the chance?

Today’s Tuesday! AAACK! I forgot to post this morning! It’s interesting what today’s question is (posted above). Interesting in that it is exactly the same as a question asked in this morning’s Bible Study class. (well, almost the same) This morning’s question was if we could ask anyone in the Bible a question; what would we ask that person, if we had the chance. See what I mean by the almost the same?

My answer to this morning’s question was Mary and I would ask her what it was like raising God’s son? I would ask that from the pov of a mother who has raised sons. We all know how impish they can be at times, and Jesus was born a human. So of course, he was a human boy at one time before he became a man to complete his role here on Earth.

That said, I’m not sure I have favorite authors or what I would ask her or him. Someone else from the past who is not an author (methinks) who I would love to have a chance to talk to would be Socrates. I decided while at university that Socrates is my Hero. 🙂 Now that was a man who thought outside the box!

BTW I don’t believe in coincidences. 🙂

  1. I no longer believe in coincidences, either…and I suppose you could conceivably call Socrates an ‘author’. This is proving to be a harder topic than at first look!

    🙂 Two like-minds. I like that! re: coincidences Everything happens for a reason, if not any more than to give me something to write here about today! LOL! Yeah, I waffled a bit on whether I could call Socrates an ‘author.’ He’s my Hero just the same, maybe even my favorite author!

    I do believe in coincidences. I believe they happen for a reason. So someone must be telling you something. Maybe there’s a story in that question you would ask Socrates?


    • I think that’s what we mean,Laurie.When most people hear ‘coincidence’, they think it’s just two things that randomly happen that are alike.Janette and I think like you:that they happen for a reason and are not random. The universe is not random, there is order.We just need to be open to God’s Plan.(Easier said than done though!)

    I don’t have a particular question I would like to ask him. I would just like to meet him. 🙂 He was a rebel. He was a man of strength. He taught knowledge when it was against the law. And he seems to have had the same beliefs I do. When the rulers put him to death for his teachings, he put the question to “them” of who was getting the better part of the deal. He who would be killed and be given the chance to experience whatever is beyond life, or them who would have to keep living.

    Go, Socrates!

    There probably is a story there, I hadn’t thought of it that way.

    Wasn’t Socrates the guy forced to take poison because his associates thought he was basically too smart for his own good?

    I’m not sure about that one, Jeff. I don’t remember it from my studies, but it sounds like a believable scenario concerning Socrates. )

    That was supposed to be a 🙂

    I’m completely out of my depth here … in regards to the bible as well as Socrates …. 😦 But I have to admit I liked the thinking regarding the question for Mary!
