Inspirational Thoughts


In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"And to think he called them friends. If anyone ever had a right to say, “With friends like mine, who needs enemies?” it was Jesus Christ. Just look at those so-called “friends” around the table with him that night: There’s Peter, who denied him three times. There’s Thomas who doubted him -- the same Thomas who told him the night of the Supper he didn’t know Jesus was the way to the Father. Philip too was there that night – Philip who didn’t know that by seeing Jesus he could see the Father who sent him. James and John were there as well: the two brothers who vied to be first in the kingdom, though they slept through Jesus’ agony in the garden later that night."
