competence

Fathers and mothers have lost the idea that the highest aspiration they might have for their children is for them to be wise... specialized competence and success are all that they can imagine.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The drive to resist compulsion is more important in wild animals than sex, food, or water. He found that captive white-footed mice spent inordinate time and energy just resisting experimental manipulation. If the experimenters turned the lights up, the mouse spent his time turning them down. If the experimenter turned the lights down, the mouse turned them up. The drive for competence or to resist compulsion is a drive to avoid helplessness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

[Diane has brought Steve into the ship's darkroom, ostensibly to demonstrate her competence in the photographic arts. Impulsively, he grabs her and kisses her passionately]



Diane Templeton:
[flirtatiously] Does this come under the heading of science or art? Whichever it is, you have definite possibilities.


[He releases her from the clutch and spins her around. Her tone changes to anger]



Diane Templeton:
Disappointed?



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
[snarling] Yeah.



Diane Templeton:
Why?



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
I wanted to find out if you were the sort of woman I figured ya, and y'are.



Diane Templeton:
I suppose you'd've liked it better if I'd slapped your face.



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
Yeah, I would!


[she immediately slaps him hard. After a moment of shock, he smiles]



Diane Templeton:
Why, good heavens! You do know how to smile!


[they are interrupted by a knock at the door; Steve is being summoned by the skipper]



Steve 'Mac' McCreary:
[as he leaves] Maybe I'm wrong at that. You've got a few possibilities yourself.

Charles Tobin:
You're one of the ardent believers - a good American. Oh, there are millions like you. People who play along, without asking questions. I hate to use the word stupid, but it seems to be the only one that applies. The great masses, the moron millions. Well, there are a few of us unwilling to troop along... a few of us who are clever enough to see that there's much more to be done than just live small complacent lives, a few of us in america who desire a more profitable type of government. When you think about it, Mr. Kane, the competence of totalitarian nations is much higher than ours. They get things done.

The best man in his dwelling loves the earth. In his heart, he loves what is profound. In his associations, he loves humanity. In his words, he loves faithfulness. In government, he loves order.

Feast of the Holy Cross When scientists are honest, as most of them are, they are well aware of the fact that their competence in science does not give them a clue to the problem of how their science should be used in the service of man. The sensitive visitor to the mesas of Los Alamos is almost sure to meditate on the experience of that gifted man, Klaus Fuchs. Though his work in the laboratories was outstanding, his decision concerning the use of what he knew was disastrous. What if, in addition to his scientificMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Commemoration of Thomas Bray, Priest, Founder of SPCK, 1730 The indwelling of Christ's Spirit means not only moral discernment but moral power. Paul's count against the Law is that it was impotent through the flesh. Against this impotence Paul sets the ethical competence of the Spirit. "I can do anything in Him who makes me strong," (Phil. 4:13) he exclaims. For his friends in Asia he prays "that God may grant you, according to the wealth of His splendour, to be made strong with power through His Spirit in the inner More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The fourth paradigm forces us at every point to discern between the creationally valid and the sinfully perverse and thus confronts us with a never-ending task which requires not only competence but also spiritual discernment.
