beliefnet A friend and I chat. It’s a familiar topic that keeps rearing its ugly head during divorce. It seems yet another person is capable of opening their mouth to voice their particular thoughts on divorce. Now, I can’t place more emphasis on the fact that these misguided people simply have no clue what divorce really is. Let me repeat that. If you are the family member or friend of someone who is getting a divorce – know that they are presently weak and suffering. Of course, I do not agree with black and white or blanket statements. Do not be foolish enough to believe that just because a person ultimately surrendered and began divorce proceedings that they actually chose divorce. I was shocked at an individuals insensitivity to a friend’s divorce. My response? “I begged for God to ease my mother’s suffering and then I screamed in grief the moment that he did,” I say. It is arrogance to have a big mouth and big opinions in divorce. This was a mean-spirited reference to my elongated divorce. 1. 2.

12 Quotes That Are the Secret to Getting over Someone - How Great Thou Part Deism Deism ( DEE-iz-əm  or DAY-iz-əm; derived from Latin "deus" meaning "god") is the philosophical position that rejects revelation as a source of religious knowledge and asserts that reason and observation of the natural world are sufficient to establish the existence of a Supreme Being or creator of the universe. At least as far back as Thomas Aquinas, Christian thought has recognized two sources of knowledge of God: revelation and "natural reason". The study of the truths revealed by reason is called natural theology. During the Age of Enlightenment, especially in Britain and France, philosophers began to reject revelation as a source of knowledge and to appeal only to truths that they felt could be established by reason alone. Deism as a distinct intellectual movement declined toward the end of the 18th century and eventually disappeared.
