18"

I've long heard that Salvation can be missed by the 18 inches from your head to your heart. Unfortunately this post adds to the footnote to that statement. I'm reading the book "God in the Equation" right now and the implication of this book has no greater significance than what happened Wednesday at the United Nations.

Dr. Charles Towns, a physicist who is credited for inventing what would become the laser won a new prize reflecting his published thoughts on Spirituality and Science.
This alone makes for terrific discussion, reading and debate. I would love to post constantly about this topic. Unfortunately however, the article gives the impression that Mr. Towns for all of his head knowledge and awards doesn't know (believe) if Jesus Christ was who he claimed to be.

"Dr. Townes, who described himself as a Protestant Christian, said there was no reason to expect that the Bible would be all correct. Asked about his beliefs, he said, "I have enormous respect and adoration for Christ and what he did," but he added that he did not know whether Christ actually was the son of God.

"He's closer to it than anybody else I know of," Dr. Townes said."

John 4:25-26

25
The woman said, "I know that Messiah" (called Christ) "is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us."

26Then Jesus declared, "I who speak to you am he."

John 14:5-14

5Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way"

6Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him."

8Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us."

9Jesus answered: 'Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father' 10Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
