SPIRITUAL THEMES

ON TELEPHONES

The Americans have need of the telephone, but we do not. We have plenty of messenger boys.
--Sir William Preece, chief engineer of the British Post Office, 1876

I can see the time when every city will have one.
--An American mayor's reaction to the news of the invention of the telephone

I'd rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.
--William F. Buckley Jr.

Because we do not understand the brain very well we are constantly tempted to use the latest technology as a model for trying to understand it. In my childhood we were always assured that the brain was a telephone switchboard. ('What else could it be?') I was amused to see that Sherrington, the great British neuroscientist, thought that the brain worked like a telegraph system. Freud often compared the brain to hydraulic and electro-magnetic systems. Leibniz compared it to a mill, and I am told some of the ancient Greeks thought the brain functions like a catapult. At present, obviously, the metaphor is the digital computer.
--John R. Searle, MINDS, BRAINS AND SCIENCE, p 44

THE CALL OF GOD

1 Cor. 7:20
You should continue on as you were when God called you.

2 Thes. 1:11
And so we keep on praying for you, that our God will make you worthy of the life to which he called you. And we pray that God, by his power, will fulfill all your good intentions and faithful deeds.

Galatians 5:13
For you have been called to live in freedom—not freedom to satisfy your sinful nature, but freedom to serve one another in love.

1 Peter 2:9
But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are a kingdom of priests, God's holy nation, his very own possession. This is so you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.

1 Cor. 1:9
God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

Philip. 3:14
I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us up to heaven.
