An arrow finds its mark, perfectly.

Ah yes, solid gold. Some one-liners just have a way of encapsulating a point, an idea, an ideology, a world view. This happens to be a fav. Enjoy, and try to disagree.

But first, do you know the difference between manure and diarrhea? Do you know the difference between creation and the alleged cosmic train wreck aka evolution? Do you know the difference between male and female?  Do you know the difference between good and evil? And with WHAT and HOW do you entertain such distinctions? Now then:

If atheism was a bodily vehicle, it would be Diarrhea. Capital D. Useless.

Bulls eye.

The web of serendipity?

It has been said that if you want to learn the mysteries of the oceans, study the dewdrop.

I say, if you want to know the depths of the universe, study the spider’s web. (porch photo)

The planning, design, math, (including the lines, the space, the angles) construction, consistency, reliability, strength, material, the overall splendor, ALL preach with one accord the magnificence of nature thanks be to the Creator of nature.

The universe in all its glory can easily be seen in the web made while you were sleeping. The songbird has little use for this marvel, as he/she is not so wired, and could not find one teacher on earth to so instruct her in the way a spider knits. And of course, there is a song that the spider cannot sing, yet the same wonder is expressed by that alone what he does best.

Nature does not compete with bragging rights like people do as they beat their breast for hitting a home run or dunking a basketball. No, nature is unassuming and dignified, and does not boast. Words are not needed, as the actions themselves are stereophonic.

Can you hear the reverberations of the silk strings pluckt by the little fella? Oh yeah, the universe sings, above and below. Can you not see the constellations of the sky in its customary display of repetition and design? Are not these daily reminders of the miraculous taken for granted as if they are not incredible?

And it is a WorldWideWeb, a quiet reminder that truth knows no boundaries. Go ahead, swat that web so it doesn’t get in your hair, and you will wake up tomorrow seeing the same web in the same place. Supernatural really. But look at the lines, the spacing, the angles.

If you look a certain way, it disappears, and so will snag a bug that will see its last day. And so the Creator’s universe will be happy to snare the foolish back to sanity, that is, if we but pay attention. Go ahead, YOU try to make a spiders web if you think it is no big deal. Get the materials. Spin it.

And yet the spider does it, having never had a lesson. The apostle was so right: ‘Doth not nature itself teach you?’ Of course it does, if we as humans learn a thing or two about who God is, and who we are not.

But aah, who we are makes all the difference, because as The Creator has so equipped the spider to create such magnificence, He has also withheld from his family the fact that he was not created in the image of God, as this was reserved for man alone. True, we have made a mess of things, but not all.

And in this nature agrees, for the whole creation groans. Need proof? How delighted are you being waken up at 3am by a kid in a racing car with a broken muffler and the idiotic boom box pulsating that you can hear a mile away, as it beats out something other than music?

Even the spider runs and hides as his web shakes from the noise, but I prefer the calm coos of the doves, as the cadence and songs of nature are tuned by the only Maestro. Evolution? Blah blah blah. Creation? Obviously.

Its not yet the time for figs….or flowers

There is one flesh of birds, there is one flesh of fish, there is one flesh of the dairy cow, and of course there is one flesh of man. Pity the brook trout for wanting to be an eagle, and pity the poor man for wanting to live his life as a hippo, and pity the bluejay for wanting to walk like an Egyptian camel.  Exaggeration? Yeah, that’s kind of the idea.

But that great philosopher, that esteemed teacher, that revered doctor of law and order, that illustrious seamstress, that unequalled apostle, that incomparable pastor, that rare prophet, that decent citizen, that wonderful evangel whose thoughts and words were given him by Another, has also said as much, but without exaggeration.

The 15th of 1 Corinthians is loaded with natural and spiritual gold, a resource not to be taken lightly, but we do, Jew and Gentile, believer and non, evolutionist and creationist, we rarely applaud such matter of fact dogmatism, and find ourselves far too often apologizing for what is not only crystal clear, but demonstrably proven, in 2019.

As if anticipating objections across time, the man of God and naturalist Paul directs us to the simplicity of things that grow; that they are not as they once appeared, because God fitted them, and he reminds us of things seen, and their purpose, which are the foundation of faith. Faith is testable, provable, and repeatable. Anchors are trustworthy.

And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain:

But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds.

There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.

There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory.

So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:

Ah yes, the cornerstone of good faith is truth, and of course not only do we have Paul’s word, but we have the Lord Himself confirming this. Sowing and reaping as it were, all things in their time. I love how Paul (through inspiration of course) uses nature as a springboard which is necessarily caustic to evolutionists worldwide, and how with one stroke of the pen, says ‘adios’ to atheism never to return.

Birds, fish, beasts, men, heavenly bodies, each having a purpose, with none stepping on the toes of the other. Each has its own glory. But note the strength of Paul’s point, that while the dead are placed in the ground like a common flower bulb, resembling nothing of the flower to be, so too is the life of man to be, and this example in the faith of the flower, naturally teaches us ‘we shall rise again,’ but differently, just as nature demands and proves, time and time again.

But with WHAT body shall we be? Who cares? God can be trusted, after all, He surely did not ask for my help in constructing the earth so it can be contained in water. (Ah yes, the great ice circumference, holding in place ALL the oceans of the world, now that is supernatural,  but I digress.) So yes, both the bulb, and the flower, are equally beautiful, in their time. God’s got this thing, after all, He is the Lord of the living and the dead.

Can you purchase common sense with a shekel?

In light of historic and almost biblical proportion of rainfall and flooding, do consider just how quick and how high, and how deadly water rises after a mere few INCHES of rain in an hour or so.

Towns erased as it were, some with nary a loss of life, so don’t you dare try to tell me God is not good. It is within His rights to take His giant hand of grace away from His creation, since mankind has pretty much forfeited his rights to the title deed of the earth, by DISMISSING God from His very terra firma.

That’s right, by word, deed, principle and practice, man has become the very cesspool that he finds in others. Of course there are exceptions, there are Some who have not bowed the knee to DeGrasse, Nye, Hollywood, the lying gods of evolution and atheism, CNN, NPR, (Fox is not always innocent either) and the sinister henchmen who line their pockets with the preaching of that false gospel called ‘global warming.’

And I am being entirely too kind by calling these people sinister- for the floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, hail, freezing weather, intense heat, are all but part and parcel of the four winds which alone control the land we call home, aka, the earth. But I digress.

To gripe about flooding without recognizing the Creator of water is well, not too smart, stupid even. People complain with utter disdain about the impossibility of the water from the rock of Moses, while speaking with the forked tongue that evolution in fact produced the oceans of the world from that little rock and the so called big bang to begin with! Idiots I tell ya. Too much head banging perhaps.

But the floods. ‘As it was in the days of Noah.’ Of course people will laugh, ignore, despise, mock, try to embarrass others, as they ridicule God Himself and His very recording of His doings, but they miss ENTIRELY that it has not rained for 40 days and forty nights since………just as God promised.

……….He is good like that, keeping His oath to Himself. God cannot lie. It is not that He can and chooses not to, but He CANNOT. This is why God’s word is despised. It is good, because He is good. This is why Christ was despised. He told the truth because He is the Truth. Light has this effect on darkness. Turn the light on in a dark room and watch the night critters head for the hills.

But we go about our ways, and rebuke God for our temporary inconviences, while forgetting and ignoring ten thousand days of health and prosperity. I think of the clowns who had their amusement at the expense of Noah as he built a rather large vessel. Imagine the social media of the day, with people drawing cartoon images of a man and his family as the ‘retardation of the species,’ those unfit to grace the dirt of the earth while they ‘believe’ there is a God above all, with Whom we have to do. Yeah, Noah was just a fool.

But it is safe to say that Mr. Noah was a gracious man, a hard working honest craftsman, whose skill would no doubt exceed even the expertise of the mortise and tenon work of the Amish, and King Solomon, that other excellent builder.

But what is ‘even as it was in the days of Noah?’ It is not a flood let me tell you. It is daily life, going to and fro, nothing unusual, people marrying the same sex, opposite sex, some even dare to marry a horse. ‘Even as it was.’ Some living as if they were animals themselves, others oblivious to decency and law, others creating mayhem and mischief, stealing, lying, and others of course, with one sharp eye on the goodness of God while being careful to remember that earth is but a temporary place, with the sun and moon also testifying to the fleeting of time.

So what’s it to be? Who and what gets your vote? Is it the goodness of God, or is it the decadence of man in which you place you trust?  It’s a no -brainer if we engage the God given brain.

 

(And do remember that the world is darn near 75% water………. But this is irrelevant……yeah, sure, okay)

‘I don’t like this’

Sure there are legitimate reasons not to like something, as in a torrential downpour when you are already bailing out 4 feet of water from the basement. That’s a legitimate gripe.  Love me some rain, but c’mon.

Or when you are decent to a stranger on the highway, allowing him to go through the gate before the train comes, only to have you sit and wait for six hours because the train conveniently broke down, JUST as you were ready to drive through the crossing. The fellow who said tkx is now home, showered, dinner, and sleeping, while you sit still waiting for the mechanics to arrive from Timbuktu. So yeah, that’s a legitimate gripe.

You get the point regarding the thousands of possible daily interruptions or inconveniences that test our mettle, and far too often we succumb to impatience.

HOWEVER, don’t you tire of the illegitimate gripes by people who say ‘God’s word can’t be trusted. God’s word is untrue. God’s word is full of fables and fiction. There is no God’s word. There is no God, as gods are a dime a dozen.’

Well, one of out six ain’t bad.  Little gods are a dime a dozen, even cheaper than that, since all gods collectively can neither count to three nor tie their shoes. Aah, but there is ONE God, capital G thank you, wherein and whoin we all live under the umbrella of His goodness. We even breathe because of His intrinsic worth.

That said, not liking what God’s word says is a legitimate reason for avoiding Him and His word. It is a bastard excuse nevertheless, and the most shallow of reasons for somehow dismissing the Creator from His very realm, but NOT LIKING something does not mean it is not true.

People dismiss God NOT because scripture is not credible: people dismiss God because of what scripture reveals about themselves. The very first words of Genesis thunder to the intellect and conscience, that: ‘in the beginning God………..’

Man cannot abide nor tolerate such authority, such dogmatism, such resoluteness of fact and purpose, such error free thinking, full of power and truth. Thus do bastard’s children reproduce more rebellion by living a life subject to rule and law, yet being so willfully blinded by He who set law in motion, not even seeing the daily laws of the sun’s circuits, with the moon right behind Him.

So we have been proven to be lawbreakers, by word, fact, and in deed. But please dear reader, do not gobble down the lame excuse of scripture’s weakness to appease your lazy intellect so you can replace it with the worship of that other little god: science! Stubbornness is the most uncomfortable indigestion.

Scripture is good, very good, and records with accuracy and excellence the life of times of Adam and his posterity, with man’s future laid out, and we have the last Adam as the most reliable witness that scripture is true, even the words of God Himself. But we do not like scripture, and the world’s endless books are enough proof that I am correct.

Men must worship something if not themselves, bowing to others to confirm their comfortable idolatry, finding common ground among rats and weasels, never looking up to see the unapologizing piercing eye of the eagle, whose vision was also given by One greater.

Oh that we would see with eyes of heaven, not wasting one more breath, not disLIKING scripture because it is not true, but because what it reveals about ourselves.

Wisdoms children need not always be orphans.  I LIKE scripture. Do you?

Now here’s a good one

In my not-breaking-a-sweat dismantling of pseudo science and lying professors of evolution and accidental life, here is yet another tender morsel, guaranteed to delight the sane mind, and equally sure to raise the ire of they who pretend to be smart.

Inspired by the accusation that I am a creationist……….. I bring this. Enjoy.

Atheism:

Specializing in Artificial Intelligence since creation.

                           Pity is to be shown toward any person who sees creation as an accident or a train wreck.

‘Adventure reveals more decadence.’ News at eleven

The news sleuth M. Drudge posted an article about undersea activity by men which found garbage at the lowest parts of the ocean, ie, where the carpet of the ocean is showing signs of litter by way of plastic. Is this newsworthy? Yes and no. Then again, what is really newsworthy?

What snapped my attention was not the fact of garbage itself, but the ensuing commentary which further reveals the heart of men, the dark and sad hearts of men who cannot see that they themselves are the very ones guilty of far worse crimes than they find in others. Yes, criminal activity, as in tossing God out OF, and FROM, His own creation. Am I sure? Well, you decide.

In the neverending attempt to ‘prove’ that man is advancing in intellect, morality, wisdom, and humanity, the daily news itself mocks evolution while it promotes evolution which elevates the lying narrative that mankind is on an upward spiral toward utopia which must at all cost leave out God, while giving the silver envelope to the academy winners who worship the golden calf: Science!

Let’s hear the speeches from a few who have memorized their imbecilic lines, but first, enjoy the fact that it was NOT stone age men who have dumped their waste in the oceans of the world. Nope, these federal crimes, while appearing misdemeanors, would be reserved for the enlightened ones, they who would make commerce by violating another man’s property, intruding upon which common sense forbids.

While our ancestors made brass, copper, perfectly cut stone, milled timber for the excellence of building, tools that were precise and exquisite and useful, finely made tapestries, they avoided apparently by choice, things which while useful, were destructive to generations later. Plastic and rubber must wait until such time as evolution becomes king.

Useful yes. Important yes. Innovative, moreso, but not at the expense of hurting God’s creation. So while some btich about trash at oceans floor, and the danger of extinction of animals, let’s hear from a disciple of higher learning:

‘Reading those stats above, I can’t get too worked up over human fetuses being aborted. After all, we’re not an endangered species. I feel obligated to do my bit: I always encourage lovely evangelical ladies to consider going the abortion route, instead of being so selfish about bringing their unwanted brats into the world. Call it a civic duty, if you like.’

I hope you have paused to consider the reality of these words. Hope the fire has simmered. THIS is the example of the godless, the decadent, the insane world view of they who have set themselves out as Trash Collectors, deciding by artificial fiat, WHAT is worthy of living, and what is unworthy, just as a person tosses a sandwich baggie into the ocean as a useless piece of scrap.

It is precisely these kinds of people who while being intruders, masqueraders of academia, are but trespassers on God’s earth, and who have impaneled a jury of peers to acquit all their colleagues, so they can hand out plastic useless diplomas to everyone who agrees with them. God is garbage! Toss Him out to oceans floor!

Ha, as if God is unaware of the deeds of miscreants. Plastic at ocean’s floors reveal greater problems than whales which forego such lousy plankton by choice. The plastic exposes the fact that man has NOT evolved, but that man has by word and acts, PROVED to be full of greed, ignorance, vice, crime of all sorts, and has proved correct what the good book has said all along, that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.

Got that? The ROOT. The source, the cause, the operating system. I dare you to turn on your computer and scan your screen, and within seconds, you will see the attempt to SELL you something- the love of money will embarrass even your pride it is that thick.

Back to the guy about the unborn, the human trash compacter. He gleefully places the fetus in the same boat as the trash at the bottom of the ocean, and is proud; he further goes on to say it is the ‘civic duty’ to do so. Gotta keep the case workers employed doncha know, they have mouths to feed….

Can you not see why I so despise the godlessness of the atheist and their pretended smarts yet warped view of life? They accuse the Creator of the vile acts of men, while doing the dirty work themselves as they wash their hands and accuse good people of superstition. Yeah, ok.

This line of ‘taking out the trash’ as in including humanity’s young, is indicative of atheism, evolution, public schooling, higher education, and dare I say, simple pride, which is really the worst sin of all, men setting themselves up as kings over all, promoting their duncery to susceptible minds.

Congratulations ye earth dwellers. While you have pretended to be advanced in thought, ye have debased yourself, by your very words, and while enjoying every emolument that life offers, you have refused the Author and Giver of life itself. Nice work. You made mom proud. Disgusting to think upon a plastic bag in the ocean and refuse to see the utter ignorance of the atheistic heart.

This is jack the barbarian, and I approve of this message.

(And yes, I am well aware of the advancement of the medical world, and the steps implemented to extend lives, and am aware of the massive tonnage of bio waste for instance in one hospital alone, let alone two in a city, or five, or a hundred, or in a state, a country, and combined in the world. This point alone should stun all sane minds. Where does it go? At what cost to the greater good? Yet, evolution should be embarrassed at the destruction it has created. But since evo is blind and emotion free, it is therefore non existent and thus irrelevant)

Private Joy

How can we be sorry for good friends who are coping with what seems like misery……when they are not sorry themselves for the same perceived tribulations? How do we express pity or sympathy when what they are going through is more valuable than gold? But we are human. We understand another’s woes. Or do we?

When the Lord Jesus was reminded that Lazarus was nigh dead, (as if He didn’t know that they were already wrong) He had to face the seemingly aloofness considered by Mary and Martha. He did not care! Why doesn’t He go, Now?

Fact is, He did care. He does care. And the misunderstanding of a greater purpose, and the misappropriation given to the Lord by the dear women was not lost on Him, after all, He knows what is in man. But did not the Lord of glory say ‘I am the resurrection AND the life?’ He did. There was no question as to this, as He was full of proof, as the evidence of His words and actions needed no sermon.

Unknown to them, their brother died. Lazarus would live again, but first………..things in life needed attended to while Lazarus slept. Amid the darkness, life would go on. Circumstances, lack of faith, failing faith, imperfect faith which tends to see things through the deceptive bent straw in the water-glass. God has no bent straw, but allows us the gift of perception: if only the women knew at the time, that the Lord’s lack of action was really for their very good, that He is mistake free, and perfect.

He understands our weaknesses, our attitudes during crisis, and like a faithful spouse, He will never leave nor forsake us. So when we tend to our friends or family who are dead to the world so to speak, with tubes, iv’s, monitors, if only they knew how great love demands such attention, when nothing can be given in return, just the mere presence of loved ones speaks to the Presence of God’s unfailing promises, that His chastisements are NEVER punitive, and that sometimes, words are not necessary.

God does not punish His children with a whipping stick. A father who paddles his son for almost setting the house on fire does so NOT to punish him, but reminds him in a way that no other can, and the old wordsmith Webster had it correct. Chastisement is always with a view to restoring the correct relationship.  It is never one-sided and vengeful. A child who loved his father would hardly want to burn down his house. 30 years later, a child will understand.

So among that distance that Mary and Martha thought the Lord could not bridge, they would be within inches of understanding the greatest truths of all time, but tears and not knowing the bigger picture of the Lord’s will had clouded their judgement, and they actually thought the Lord did not care.

Of course He cared, the same way He cared when He slept in the boat while the disciples thought they were going to drown. But did He not say ‘Let us go to the other side,’ being fully aware of an impending storm? Oh yeah, He said that, and He knew, and He knew what was coming during this learning trial of faith: ‘Master, do you not care that we perish?’

Uh fellas. ‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not ………….’ So they, like the women, and like us on occasion, see the waves, and a possible funeral; hopeless and helpless are we. But perhaps there is a greater purpose, one that, if we had not gone through such a trial, would be oblivious to the ‘rising again,’  or the moving of mountains, or the walking on water. The funeral is for another time.

Indeed. There is the nearness and dearness of the three, not that the Lord loved the others less, but that He took Peter, James, and John inside- He also took them to the high mountain- He was, He is, I am, and after Jesus wept because of Adam, His friend Lazarus arose, just as He said. Of course. After all, God is well aware of seed-time and harvest, but more so, He knows of filial love between family, He careth for you. Primus inter pares and all that.

So while you and I may be sorry for so and so who goes through hell on earth for a zillion reasons, just ask they who sit in ED beds, OT rooms, CTICU units, OR waiting rooms, CHEMO treatments, there is a whole lotta ‘nearness and dearness’ going on that spouses and family would not trade for all the tea in China.

Casting all your cares upon Him, because He careth for you.  There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. He will never leave thee nor forsake thee. Ye are of more value than many sparrows….bless them little birds.

 

(Was going to drop a comment at a friend’s place, but the more I thought about the subject at hand, I wasn’t sure how to condense it, so as it is, this is a tribute to that post, and her as well. Some blogs are good, others very good, some lousy, some noise, others a symphony, if you do not know of the wit, whimsy, woo, and wonder as found in hearts saturated in truth, go have a visit.)

The music of Spring

Just as the Creator promised, the continuity of the seasons confirms that He is, that his word is good, very good even, that He can be trusted, and that there is absolutely no shadow of turning in Him.

When a friend tells you ‘I will meet you at 1 pm for lunch,’ then shows up at 2, here we see a drastic contrast that God is not like this. Sure, circumstances change whereby an employee may be running late for his shift, but God is faithful. Always. Not a minute late. Perfectly on time is He, as His measures are consistently accurate.

‘By the word of the Lord the hinds do calve.’ Do you ever think HOW this happens? Or how the locusts gather TOGETHER and plan their assignments? Or HOW, every year, the maple buds appear, then on their heels the green leaves? Then there is the rain. People who follow such things pay attention to: ‘On this day for the past 30 years it rained 27 out of 30 days.’ Hmmm, I’m sensing a pattern.

Of course it is a pattern, and this return of spring sings the musical score of the Writer and Conductor. The blueprint of heaven can be seen in the spider’s web, who builds that masterpiece in the same spot, year after year after year; then there are the wasps, those annoying and sometimes terrifying flying insects who will at whatever cost, build their nest in the most inconvenient place, for YOU.

The songbirds are back, clapping too for spring. But its the bumblebee which snags my attention, that colorful hovering tiny winged fella that defies logic and makes NASA green with envy as to how it flits, dips, ascends, descends, and just is a plain aerodynamical marvel, and I so enjoy working side by side with them as we have an agreement, an accord as it were, to not invade each other’s space, and this has worked out fine as long as I can remember.

THEY, like God, are not nervous, so unlike the chipmunk or noisy blue jay who must tell everyone he arrived, nope, the bee is the dove of the flower visitors, demure, unassuming, and so does not boast.

God does also not boast, but who the heck cannot notice the consistent cloud covers, the dazzling colors when the sun makes its circuit, the sound of water over rocks tuned perfectly to that cadence which is never routine, the ocher wheat fields of spring, the geese and their Vees overhead, and we must admit: more rain, and more rain.

Rain is necessary regardless of our occasional inconvenience. We do not see the big picture of the butterfly effect, that the caterpillar in Seattle has an effect on the camel riders in Giza. But spring, where hope springs eternal, where nature agrees that the Father of time and eternity acts according to His own good pleasure.  It wouldn’t kill us to agree.

Like pictures at an exhibition, the rite of spring proves seed-time and harvest, day and night, winter and summer, cold and heat, shall not cease. Why is it so hard for people to admit that God and His word are good? Oh if men would pay attention to the music of Genesis.

That’s no angry bird!!

In my never ending quest of easily exposing the fraudulent false science of evolution and godlessness, and proving every word of God is good, today we have this.

One would think, that after bazillions of years of head banging, the woodpecker would so tire of having to drill like a jackhammer his beak against the tree…..and evolve already, to the point that he would not be the only bird which suffers from daily migraines….just to eat his lunch.

Or…. we could consider there was NO evolution as far as the woodpecker was concerned, there were NO bazillions of years, there were NO gripes by the bird, and the knockety knock daily raps were simply music to his ears, with only people complaining that the bird must be an idiot for not evolving already.

Thus does creation daily pronounce evolution as mindless duncery, and thus does nature sing the praises of God.

Foolishness has many friends

I can’t tell you how much I love this pic.

Sorry a man was foolish to test his law-breaking with 3 powerful animals, but imagine the chaos of that scene.

No doubt money was involved in his criminal activity, and he paid dearly. Poaching is illegal, anywhere, whether it be a caribou in Canada, a whitetail deer in Maine, or a rhino on the plains in Africa.

At least the editors were smart enough to not give the deceased the title of ‘hunter,’ as hunters obey all game laws and understand conservation.

But look at that face. Is there any other animal on earth that strikes such fear and wonder such as that, and even from a distance, or seeing the image on a screen? Awesome, no wonder the darn things are called the king of beasts.

Now consider for a moment if you will, this same creature pacing in the den with that man of God Daniel. Hmmm. Daniel did not test God by walking foolishly in the den of hungry animals. Nope, he was tossed in, and therein lies the difference, as God protected him.

The poacher ran unsent, and he pretty much was on his own, so before folks start crying me a river as to ‘where was God,’ we are all accountable for our actions, and it was his fault that his children are now fatherless.  People should obey stop signs.

But once more, love that expression up top.

Who is the greatest scientist of all?

I like this observation so much I am going to steal from myself borrowing a comment I answered elsewhere. Sometimes the simplest of explanations are the best. True statement.

Creation is the science of truth.
Evolution is the religion of fools.

Hopefully some will see that the issue on the table regarding the deep answers to life, are not HOW, or WHAT, or WHEN, but WHO.

WHO?

There is only one WHO which answers every question ever posed, and WHO silences every mouth, and needs not explain things which are overtly obvious, but just to put the icing on the cake, GOD ALMIGHTY has additionally supplied the tools of our conscience, heart, and mind; if that is not enough, the Holy Scriptures alone confirm HE whose ways are from everlasting to everlasting.

And oh as a sidebar, by whom the Lord Christ doth hold all things together by the word of His power. Surely this must embarrass the folks who doth boast of their Higgs boson……

Creation is the science of truth, evolution and atheism are the religion of fools. True statement.

One by one, like flies they drop

There have been countless visitors, young and old, male and female, believer, unbeliever, atheist, professor, PhD,  political professional or novice, nurse, carpenter, salesman, breadbaker, homemaker, fisherman, mechanic, you name it, all dropped by to say ‘hey,’ and add what they will to enjoy, or to ‘set straight’ this particular blogger, in all matters of life.

They who have hung around from the beginning have no doubt noticed, that here at the Den, there has been no change in appreciation of God’s word, and the resoluteness and stability of scripture presented, has not changed one whit. How could it if God be true and every man a liar?

Aah but you say, that makes me a liar as well if EVERY man is a liar! Fair point, but not no fast with the loose interpretation. If I do not agree with God as to His assessment of myself, and do not take Him at His word, then yes, I would be a liar, but if I believe there are ‘none righteous, no not any,’ then most certainly in this I tell the truth.

The liar is he (I make no apology for including female in the royal nonanthropos of mankind) who generally denies that God is true, and specifically asserts that Christ was a mere man, with no more relevance than a greeter at Wal-Mart. God is true, and the Lord Christ lived in obscurity with a purpose; that God is for us, and that He proved it, according to the scriptures.

So one by one the naysayers do fall by the wayside, after seeing there is no way to make inroads here, so they flee to seek fresh meat, not being able to find one weak link of scripture, not being able to bring the smallest of charges against the demonstrated proof of Genesis, and the consistency of God’s created ‘kinds,’ which are observable, testable, and repeatable, which model by the way is the essence of TRUE science, a fact that is despised by the idolators of science falsely so-called.

In this they lose, every one, every time, for the Creator has proved there is no contest. The game is lost by all fools ere they enter the ring. They are knocked out dead flat by scripture, reason, common sense, and facts, all which have been clearly presented and defended by the history, geography, and complete accuracy of God’s word. Oh how do infidels despise such concrete and changeless truth, so unlike the cartoons of every false discipline.

Of course God left us a record of His doings; He wants us to live without excuses, that we be not as others who grope about, being lost as fog, like a mariner without a compass, guessing which way is north, only to run the ship into rocks, then to blame God for disaster. NO!

You are to blame for the bed you lie in, as all believers know this, even a fool is considered wise on occasion when he uses his brain and asks: ‘So what about Nazareth, what about this alleged son of a carpenter?’

So you see, there can be no inroads made here to suggest in the least that God is not, and that His word is not good. Of course He is, after all, He holds all things together. And of course His word is good. Always and forever. God cannot lie. See that whale yonder in the greatest playground in the world? Still a whale, and still the greatest of guests. Thank God. But you will not. Not because you cannot, but because you will not, and I remind you again that there is no contest.

I heard a man so wonderfully and arrogantly boast that ‘if God shows up, we will do the fire test of the prophet,’ and see if God can put out the fire, then and only THEN will God be true and every man a liar.

Fools just do not get it. God does not play favorites to the whims of clowns. You want to see a circus, go see P.T. Barnum. God has won every contest by not even showing up. His word is enough, but some people just do not get it. For 120 years (that’s a lifetime btw) men btiched in the days of Noah while they enjoyed their daily perversions of thought and deed, THEN blamed God that their wickedness was not rewarded.

So what has changed today? Ha, Solomon had it correct: ‘nothing new under the sun,’ so I’m just passing along solid information, but please do not blame God for your stubbornness, then say it is I who is weak-minded and who needs a crutch.

Hilarious. I know what true science is, and it is not found in the godless bytes of the googlemeister, which has simply aided and abetted in the rapid addition of one dunce after another, as they swear they ‘know.’ After all, they have all these zeros to support their godless proofs of assumptions and theories, ALL which leave out the Creator who made the brain.

So thank you all for confirming the word through this little blog, to the believers who have a sweet savor unto life, and to the godless atheist who has proven you rather prefer a savor of  death. Thus is the strength of scripture, always correct, in any age, historically and scientifically no contest.

The lambs are not so silent

More toward the welcoming of spring, which arrival is not too silent, as the lambs doth baa. Consider if you will then, the pretended wide and wonderful world of evolution, and the pseudo crap of lazy intellect, which suggests there is a NEED for both lamb and lion, a need mind you, unguided and unaided in the least by a divine hand, a NEED which can supply ZERO reasons why either should exist, AT ALL.

Yet, Mr. Skeptic and Mrs. Infidel have NEVER wondered WHY the lamb was so graced with the wool that was withheld from the lion, and why the lion was given paws instead of hooves. As I said, lazy intellect on display here.

I despise the godless reasons for life, because the cloak of intellect adorning such minds is so obviously ragged and reeks of intentional blindness. Tis not an aromatic flavor. The lion and the lamb, animals that could not be farther apart in nature, but could not be closer as to purpose, that purpose being their own distinct field of operation, thanks be to God.

Look at the distance between the eyes of the lamb. Look at the ears. The wool. the legs. Evolution should be so embarrassed at the mere insinuation of accidental existence, as if a camel has a thousand legs, a confused wannabe millipede, so please dear reader, don’t pretend that ‘evilution’ is somehow superior as to WHY things are.

Got that? EVILution, because that’s what it is. A lamb is not some mixed up hybrid of camels and humpty dumpty that got lost trying to escape the desert, but are lambs, period, always have been, always will be.

Believers who engage such parlor tricks have not thought the matter through, trying to play the compromise act against the middle to remain academically correct. Sorry, no, there is no middle  ground, and there is no room, there is no suite in the compromise of God’s creation. He made the kinds. God needed no interim period so He could finalize His creation. Everything He made was VERY good, as it was, as it is. The whale spouts this truth. The whale does not lie like humans.

How do I know? Because God said so, thus meaning, my opinion and yours regarding things that are clear, are irrelevant. Casting down imaginations and all that.

If the lambs existence is accidental or dubious, so is the revelation of Abraham that God would provide Himself a lamb, so is the lamb of Isaiah 53, and so would be the assault on the lamb of God Himself, per the great baptist’s own eternal words. Perish the thought.

As with all snares, we can see that to go to bed with evolution, is to actually rape the scriptures, and say God is not true, and His word cannot be trusted. Fortunately, God is true, every man a liar, and His word can always be trusted.

But look at the lion, that fearless creature whose mouth God shut in the den of Daniel. Look at that hungry mouth which can naturally devour a lamb, but did not, no he CANNOT, not while God is involved. Daniel is safe. And finally, look at the lamb in the bosom of the lion, the curse of sin rolled away, and God’s word proven to be true once again, just like before.

Both creatures, reveal the intrinsic glory of God, and the evolutionist should really wake up and pay attention, that the God of Daniel, the God of Abraham, the God of Adam, the God of the baptist, is certainly the same Creator of the lion and the lamb, and more so, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who as Lamb, will shortly display His nature as Lion, and rightly so.

After all, isn’t it only proper that trespassers on His earth, and they who have despised His name and good graces, and they who have willfully abraded good people for testifying to the obvious, while cited as delusional, should have a day of reckoning? Seems fair wouldn’t you say that the records and the books be accounted for.  I think so, for even the banker must keep straight simple ledgers of his customers, how much more God who has given us stewardship and a much more valuable commodity: life.

And if you care to listen, and if you listen carefully, the lambs do scream creation in all their demureness.

 

(PS- if I were a judge in a courtroom, I would immediately disbar any lying attorney for trying to peddle atheism and evolution in a place where truth is president)

Are men fools or what?

I noticed the buds on the maples, on time, just like last year, and the year before, and the year before that, after long and brutal winters, their dormancy finally ended, they awaken to the temperature and timing of Spring.

Not an act of serendipity mind you, as if they just so HAPPENED to trade places with the frigid icicles only a month earlier, nope, their arrival, like the robins, is testament to the good Creator who has no issue whatsoever keeping His word, that cold and heat, seed time and harvest, shall not cease, as long as the earth remains.

I love the fact that somebody’s word is good. Always. Without shadow or turning, no deviation, God’s word is most excellent, that we the people be not as some, who are lost as fog, groping about, daily, minute by minute, so lost, that any good blind person would appear to have 20/20 by comparison.

The FOOL says in his heart: ‘there is no God.’ No unbelief, no nay never, but one of simple denial here. There is a conversation tween a man and himself, and the one buried in artificial intelligence wins the day, today only though, for one day, the fool will tire of that dunce cap weighing him down.

So the few of us who blog, we submit reminders to each other, and well as they who pass by, that they can choose their self-made detours of avoidance and ignorance, a trail blazed by their very feet of pride, or stop to see the wonders of Spring, as it says ‘adios’ to winter, per the Creator’s promise.

But instead of tasting to see that the Lord He is good, men will continually curse Him by refusing to bow both head and knee, the head toward the Giver of the brain, and the knee to the Maker of the heart. Maybe some day.

But spring! Playgrounds erupt with the laughter of children, and the earth reverberates with the sound of warmer music, music that can be heard in everything. The songbirds return. The ducks do appear, on time, green is the master color of earth once more, and the last chills of winter exhaust their final breaths of frost.

Don’t be a fool, today or tomorrow. And to they in the bleachers, don’t you dare bring your deaf, dumb, and blind god ‘science’ to this post.  It’s embarrassing to common sense.

THE most dangerous man…

(This is a copied post from 2014, with a few additions to make it current)

A casual poll was taken recently at a lecture regarding ‘THE most dangerous man’ of our times. Suggestions were asked for and the usual suspects made the list:

Image result for mr dangerous

-Obama, Bush, Clinton, Trump

-Boko, Jihad John, Kim Jong,

-Netanyahu (?)

-Axlerod, Boehner, Biden,

-Maher, Silverman, Colbert, Cooper, Hannity, etc, etc.

After the audience exhausted their picks, and after whispers and laughter, the speaker was happy to inform them of his opinion.

The distinction and award for THE most dangerous man went to: Putin. He cited the missile threats, the confederacies with nations, his speedy and zenith rise to power,  his steely resolve, yep, he said THE most dangerous man in the world is Vlad. He gave a hundred other reasons why, and at the end of the day acquired a few more disciples to his line of reasoning. But I say, ok, I get it but ‘not so fast.’

I was not in this group of people hearing this lecture, because I may have inserted ‘foot-in-mouth’ just to be fair. When I first heard this question ‘who is THE most dangerous man…’ only one person came to mind, and it was immediate. There was no deliberation, no scanning of history or archives of the mind, no files sought so I could make an intelligent selection.

I have a better pick than all the ones mentioned, and with far more reaching damage than the speaker suggested, and he would be the antichrist. But does he make the winners circle as THE most dangerous man in the world? No, for he is not the BEST pick.

To be critically fair, the best choice for ‘most dangerous man in the world’  would be:

ME

Why? Because I do not know unequivocally what is in the hearts of Putin, Bush, and the rest. I do know however what lurks in my own heart, and if one of these slippery thoughts were to gain traction,  heck, maybe I will  ‘deny the Lord.’   Is this dangerous? Hmmmm.

Perhaps moreso than the deeds of tyrants. When brother Peter said ‘ha, Lord , no worries, I will never deny thee,’ The Lord only had to consider that first rascal Adam, to know well enough that Peter would take a fall. Maybe Peter thought for an instant: there are far more people who are more apt to do worse things. But self examination is never a bad thing.

And the Lord said  ‘Satan wants you,’ and this would surely qualify Peter as the most dangerous man in the world, to be so used and abused by the enemy of God. We cannot under-estimate the damage done by a  person so used by Satan. Does Judas Iscariot come to mind?

Thankfully, men and women, you and I, have all the resources of heaven at our disposal, to lead a quiet and godly life unto the glory of God. Satan walks about seeking who he may devour, but there is ONE greater. Greater is He that is in you…..Thank God.

Putin? Ha, I am the real threat to myself, as to danger, well that’s another story, because there are many detours available to avoid rock slides, no sense in trying to drive through the impassable, but oh how the grace of God sustains.

But we must admit, when we see such decadence in others, there is a tendency and temptation to weigh ourselves against such, and that is a clear and present danger that only we can overcome. And for what it’s worth, any atheist who may pass by this way, no, believers are not better than you, we have simply chosen a better WAY. Why?

Because the heart is deceitful and desperately wicked above all things, who can know it?

And we know the King of Hearts.

Now that’s a croc

Was watching a nature doc on the world’s most dangerous animals, specifically of the Asian variety. Monkeys, scorpions, tigers, elephants, pan bears, honey badgers, mosquitoes, cobras, and many more were all represented as just plain all around bad news- especially for humans.

Of course the wonderful pictures and vids of amazing creatures comes with the baggage of the usual thoughtless commentary of ‘a hundred million year old crocodiles which have not changed a bit…………..’  only to hear minutes later how the snow leopard evolved over a few billion years……..

Does anybody around here see why I despise modern so-called science? Can you understand why today’s science is yesterday’s golden calf, only to be worshipped as the latest god?

Will any honest person who has faced such imbecilic opinion dare say: this is not science? Will an honest person say the millions of years of ‘no change’ and the ‘billions of years of change’ have not, cannot, and will never be proven, therefore, all such ‘theory’ is MERE speculation, because it can never be testable, observable, and repeatable, which are the only ingredients of science that matter?

Enter humility. But no, humility is not in the playbook of the godless; they must pretend to appear intellectual, and the more zero’s that can be attached to a guess, the more ‘intellectual’ the assumption appears. Enter Google, stage two, which is responsible for the perpetuation of idiots, with full permission from good dunces everywhere of course.

So I watch and enjoy the wonders of the sea and land, to notice the plain awesomeness of the tiger with those off the chart stripes, while at the same time despising the evolutionary and godless commentary which leaves all this beauty to mere chance.

Guess what? There is no chance that an unthinking bang thought it needed to bang, snatching a pebble from here, colliding into a pebble there, and after such a cosmic train wreck, out pops water, blood, bones, stars, elephants, bats, octopus, lions, men, women, apples, cherries, oak trees, apes, peacocks, streams, rivers, oceans, sunsets, yep, all this, courtesy of the cosmic acorn blast………

…….a blast mind you that is responsible for the keeping of the crocodile in his original suit of clothes, while at the same time changing the leopard from a kitty cat that was unhappy with his litter box, after millions of years of course.

Ain’t this a croc? Uh yeah, and only the unthinking fool would purchase this rotten food and swear it is delicious.

But you know what is truly a croc? We focus on the one percent which is speculative, yet avoid the 99% which is obvious.  How old is the universe? Did eagles once live as beetles?Are bears liars? Are you a sinner? Point made, case closed.

Look at her. The moon!

Some called it ‘super.‘  But have we become so immune to creation that we need ‘scientists’ to tell us when the moon is super? Ha! It is always super.

 

Don’t you just love the moon?  Changeless from the day it was borne. Borne by Divine hands of course. A testament to God Himself, who proves He cares, around the clock.

 

 

 

The subtle.

 

The demure beauty.

 

 

 

The underestimated glory.

 

 

So alike all other night orbs, yet so distinct in nature and purpose. A light, to rule the night. Alone. Apart. Emitting coolness, where contrary to popular opinion her shade is warmer. Love that.

But this light! Needing no help to transmit the nature of God which is light, it stands. She stands against the wiles of godlessness which defies her Maker, and gives her light anyway, and withstands cruel mockings from many fronts such as media, academia, false science, who pretend she sits idly by, just so happening to supply light and favor to a world which despises its Creator.

No! Her purpose is fixed, her mission secure and steadfast, she testifies to the unshakable promises of God Almighty, whose word is good, that day and night shall not cease, as well as cold and heat, and that He remembers His very oath regarding His moon and His covenant people, Israel. He remembers.

  But of course there is more.  It has been said the moon NEEDS the sun to display her majesty, but I ask you friendly reader: do the neon fish swimming miles beneath the ocean need the help of the whale which swims above it ere they produce their effulgent light? Or is the light innate, this luminescence which appears to have engulfed the moon?

Let’s only remind ourselves that the conclusions based on theories and assumptions were spoon fed to us by the godless who have dissected God out from His own laboratory, so on the strength of this point alone, our eyebrows should raise to a heightened level of suspicion.

Or have we simply not given the Creator His own place in the heavens, enough so that to at least consider the moon no more needs the sun light, than does the sun ask permission of the moon before he warms the earth for the flowers. To each has its glory. None need not nor dare not eclipse the other.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; (truly how great Thou art)

The next time you look up at that white wonder, take pause to remember that for thousands and thousands of years, how all men and women, from king to beggar, and all in between, who saw, thought, and wrote of the secret ways of God revealed through the moon.

Just when you think you heard it all…….

So this dude named Sam Smith has attracted the attention of the media, and all of a sudden  he is relevant in the eyes of perversion and decadence. Why? Oh Romeo let me count thy ways.

“Sometimes I feel male, sometimes I feel female. I’m binary. I’m neither male or female.”

Uh hello Sammy boy? Knock knock, anybody home in that brain? So what, I’m supposed to call you Sirless? Ma’amless today? What about tomorrow? SamShe? SamHE? You expect the world all of a sudden to cater to your daily whims, and curl under your idiotic desires?

For once I would love to see my blog pals from across the world and say, ‘You know what jack the barbarian, you know what ColorStorm, I can’t stand what you usually write, but I have to agree with you on this. It is stupid, and you make a fair point about the vile heart of man.’

But nnnnooooooo, I will be railed at as if I am not even-tempered or fair. But this is where we end up as a society when EVERY MAN DOES WHAT IS RIGHT IN HIS OWN EYES. Lost as humans with not a drop of reality remaining. You may want to call a plumber pal, or worse yet, give the hospital a shout and ask who your mother delivered.  Surely there is a record of your birth sex if you are not sure.

So once more does God’s word win the day, describing our society perfectly, and revealing the Creator as millenia ahead of men’s dirty doings. But if that’s not enough, we could always call upon common sense.

Ever seen through carpeting?

Was having a conversation with a rather smart woman and we were speaking of stars, light, night, time, space, matter, and this naturally led to many further fine thoughts and observations. A moment in time. Words spoken. Thoughts considered. Where were you? Where are you? Where am I? Now? and I then asked her: Why is the sky so blue?

After the customary trading of opinion, she asked me: ‘So, what do YOU think?’ Aah, music to my ears, when someone asks what do you think about this or that, and after a long pause I immediately said this:

The blue sky is the floor of heaven.

Which also means that the stars are dotted jewels upon God’s watered carpeting. And that further below float the clouds, like the dust of His feet. Perspective is a wonderful master teacher.

After all, there is this thing called the firmament, of which we all live under its umbrella. But enjoy a golden oldie. If we pay attention, we can hear the singing of creation, and oh my, if our ears appreciate music, how much more does God enjoy the notes on the scale.
