About Musings in Montage

When I was a junior at Hope College in Holland, Michigan, I started a blog to post ideas, thoughts, and dreams of world changing. As I moved to Chicago, AustinHonduras in 2008, and back stateside in 2011, this cyber-journal followed me and kept track of my scattered thoughts and travels.

I now say I am “from Brooklyn,” where I live with my husband (as of 7.5.14) and get paid to play host at an office in Manhattan. The city suits me, but the country is still in my bones, which is probably why I want to serve pancakes every week and why I love to bake and why I love to make friends with strangers and neighbors. It’s also why I married the most hospitable man in the world, who also happens to be an amazing photographer!

We are trying to know Christ and make Him known in the hallways and apartment buildings and living rooms of life. We praise God every day that our attempts are received and sanctified by Christ’s work on the cross.

Soli Deo Gloria

  5. Hey! Thanks for visiting (and following) the Jenn stories! This blog looks like a great place to hang out. We seem to have a Jesus-and-Honduras connexion . . .

    1. Yes! It seems we do have a connection :) I have found the tie that binds weaves its way beautifully through all sorts of stories – I’m glad I can read yours!

  7. Well, you seem super fun :) I’m looking forward to getting to “know” you. Your heart is so tender towards God. I pray that He keeps blessing you with that faith!

  8. JESUS (May he be blessed forever) IN CHRISTIANITY: The second member of the Triune God, the Son of the first part of the Triune God, and at the same time “fully” God in every respect.
    JESUS (May he be blessed forever) IN ISLAM: A very elect and highly esteemed messenger of God. No Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe this.

    Al Quran: Surah/Chapter 005 – Al-Mâ’idah. Verse 75.
    The Messiah, son of Mary (Jesus), was no other than a messenger, messengers (the like of whom) had passed away before him. And his mother (Mary) was a saintly woman. And they both used to eat (earthly) food. See how we make the revelations clear for them, and see how they are turned away!

    1. Thank you for reading! Jesus rose from the dead, unlike any other messenger (and as proven by historical evidence outside the Bible). So, he was not just elect and highly esteemed, but in fact God himself (which he claimed first person and proved through the power of what He was capable of).

      Thanks again for reading and sharing!

      1. Thank you Madam Caroline for reply. I want to know; Did Jesus (May he be blessed forever) died on cross as Ordinary mortal man or died as died as Immortal God? What do you believe? It is a simple question.

      2. You have asked such a good question and I’ll pose one in return: could a merely mortal man be capable of forgiving sins (though he be capable of dying) and could a solely immortal man (though capable of forgiving sins) choose to live inside human skin?

  9. OK Caroline! I reply your TWO questions, but then you should also answer my ONE simple question with simple answer.
    Q-1: Could a merely mortal man be capable of forgiving sins (though he be capable of dying)?
    Ans-1: According to Christian belief, full God (Son of first part of Triune God) and full Man (Son of Mary) is capable of forgiving Sins. But there are not two Sons, but One Son in Trinity. Hundreds of mortal men daily die and so far billions of mortal men have died on earth; therefore, there is nothing special in a mortal man capable of dying. An ordinary mortal man dies; But Immortal ONE God is capable of forgiving Sins.

    Q-2: Could a solely immortal man (though capable of forgiving sins) choose to live inside human skin?
    Ans-2: According to Christian belief, full God (Second member of Triune God) choose to live inside human skin of full Man (Son of Mary). However, your term “Immortal Man” produces three results which contradict Crucifixion and Trinity:-
    First result: Your term “Immortal Man” means that “Son of Mary” is also immortal and did not die on cross, no sacrifice. Since Second member of Triune God is already Immortal, and can also not die on cross, therefore, on cross was no death, no sacrifice, no salvation, no atonement.
    Second result: Your term “Immortal Man” means that “Son of Mary” is also immortal; therefore, there are two Immortal Sons (Son of first part of Triune God + Son of Mary). It contradicts Trinity, in which there is ONE Son only.
    Third result: Your term “Immortal Man” means that Mary is also immortal and must be part of a Trinity (Father+Mother+Son). This result is inline with Collyridianism, which was an obscure Early Christian movement whose adherents worshiped the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, as a goddess.
    Please note I have avoided use of term “Immortal Man” and I used terms “Mortal man” and “Immortal God”. So Madam Caroline, I have replied to your both Questions, now I am looking forward to your answer to my simple question:
    “Did Jesus (May he be blessed forever) died on cross as Ordinary mortal man or died as Immortal God? What do you believe?”
    Your answer will increase my knowledge.
