The Defining Relationship

One of life’s biggest questions relates to our origins.  Where did we come from?  Genealogy searches have become increasingly popular in recent years as historical records have become more accessible.

“La inmortalidad: ¿Programada o prometida?”

La revista Time puso una declaración extraordinaria en la portada de su edición del 21 de febrero de 2011: “2045, el año en que el hombre se vuelve inmortal”.  Esta predicción se basa en la fusión entre el cerebro humano y una computadora.  Se dice que la tecnología informática se desarrolla a un ritmo tan espectacular que los ordenadores (o computadores) podrán llevar a cabo en sólo una hora lo que antes le tomó a la historia 90 años.  Esto sugirió a muchos científicos de todo el mundo que los ordenadores estaban desarrollando una "inteligencia" (inteligencia artifi

Immortality: Programmed or Promised

TIME magazine had an extraordinary statement on the cover of its February 21, 2011, issue – ¨2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal.¨ This prediction was based on the merger of the human brain and a computer.  Computer technology was described as developing at such a phenomenal rate that computers could accomplish in just one hour what had previously taken their entire 90 year history to do.  This suggested to many scientists around the world that computers were developing an “intelligence” (

“Adorando a Dios con la alabanza y el lamento”

Cuando era niña, nunca hubo ninguna duda en mi mente de que el único estado de ánimo apropiado para la adoración era la felicidad.  Dios, como Creador, era el objeto natural de nuestra adoración.  Como creaturas, era natural sentir que un alegre espíritu de regocijo era la única manera de acercarnos a Dios.

Worshiping God with Praise and Lament

When I was growing up there was never any doubt in my mind that the only mood appropriate for worship was happy.   As the Creator, God was the natural object of our worship.  As the created, it was natural to feel that a happy joyful spirit was the only way to approach God. Anything less would dishonor him.

Attending church on Sabbath reinforced the connection between acts of worship and a happy mood.  Church services brought people together in shared beliefs and happy fellowship away from the world.  Mission stories always concluded with happy endings.

Worship Outside Eden

We probably don’t always think of the story of the sacrifices of Cain and Abel as a story about worship––but in fact it is. As Ellen White points out, these were not sacrifices to atone for sin: instead, “these [were] offerings ... to express faith in the Savior whom the offerings typified, and at the same time to acknowledge their total dependence on Him .... Besides this, the first fruits of the earth were to be presented before the Lord as a thank offering.” [Patriarchs and Prophets, 7]

El optimismo y la salud

¿Habría alguna diferencia si, cuando Jesús sanó a la gente les hubiera elogiado por su optimismo en lugar de su fe? Sabemos que estos dos términos son similares ya que ambos expresan expectativas positivas sobre el futuro, pero hay diferencias parcialmente captadas por el artista que ilustró el folleto de este trimestre de la Escuela Sabática.
