Please hold…

Uncle Paul calls you on the phone and tells you about his wife who was just taken ill. You get distracted, and tell him to ‘hang on a sec.’ He says: ‘take your time.’ You were 18 at the time.

70 years later, after a life of job hopping, military tours, ups, downs, family duties, hobbies, and the common affairs of life,  you find yourself in a hospital bed; hardly unable to move your right hand, you notice the phone (the one with the cord) is off the hook, and struggle to put it back, but first you put it to your ear and say ‘hello?’

Of course the voice on the other end is uncle Paul who says: ‘I’m here, I waited for you.’ Of course the phone drops immediately to the floor. And in that moment of unannounced honesty but bitter and unvarnished truth, you saw the revelation of the patience of Almighty God which has been timeless and changeless. The brutal end of life was shown just as true as ‘in the beginning.’

But notice the kindness of uncle Paul as he said nothing of the lie when the young man said ‘just a sec.’ No, it was not ‘just a sec,’ it was a lifetime of poor manners, selfishness, busyness that had no time for an aunt’s welfare, and the quietness of the uncle to not bring up this behavior was louder than thunder.

God is not that uncle, no, much better even, but to put the creator ‘on hold’ as it were, as if time belonged to us, and to casually dismiss Him because of OUR cares of the world, what WE think is important, is kind of, well, not too smart. It probably would have been a good idea to spend a little time with the wise uncle so many years ago.

God’s time is not ours, and He is far far Far more patient than we can ever imagine. He is that good. But He does grant visions and dreams, things which speak to the eternal that we just may get back on track, so we do not have to wait 70 years before getting it right.

Things like this give context to ‘Jesus wept,’ at the aloofness of men, being saddled by distractions or lack of faith in the tangible and credible, which ignores the eternal truths found in the life and times of the perennial scent of a simple flower.

‘Yes, I’ll take that call, NOW.’

Let it bee

Since they were first created, the honey bee has been delighting we the people with that wonderful treat known as honey.

The comb, an engineering marvel second to none, (there is that spider ‘s web though) has long stumped godless evolutionists as the only insect that provides food for man.

Why should the bee get all the glory, or why should the bee alone be tasked with such a solitary work load?

C’mon insect pals, evolve already will ya! Or perhaps they can’t, and never will.

I can see heaven’s wink in this, that masterful addition to creation that says: pay attention and behold what ingenuity has been withheld from the wasp, the polar bear, or the common fruit fly.  Behold my bee!

The bee, that humble little creature which performs its artistry and is under appreciated. And who pray tell ignores such a majestic life? Ha! The godless of course who are blind to the quintessential taste of that sweet nectar as to its origin.

But don’t you just love how the bee flits and zips, hovers, up down, zigs, zags, backward, forward, stops on a dime, with a mission that’s just so darn cool to the nines. Jed Clampett may have had his black gold, Texas tea,  but this honey thing is pure gold.  It’s just not fair I tell ya that the house fly has this skill of honey making withheld from his resume.

Will they who deny a Maker complain about this insect, that he alone is given this special skill? Will they argue that we need to wait a couple million more years before the bees hand off this job to the beatles? Or, perhaps and better yet, maybe a few will admit, ‘now there is an awesome God, who reigns above all things.’

Just maybe they will enjoy words of wisdom, and finally let bee the emptiness of godlessness, and thank God for His very genius. But that’s only a start, because the God of creation is also the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Scripture. Nature. Heaven. Earth. Arithmetic. The alphabet. Geography. Biology. Man’s history, man’s life, man’s destiny, death, disease, war, love, pride, greed, contentment, all that is. All of one. Can you hear the quiet tune of the humming bee as he preaches the gospel of the goodness of God without aborting his mission, or will you say the wonderful taste of honey is but a serendipitous accident or fluke of nature?

If you do, may you be stung till you regain your senses.  😉

Just wishing you some evangelistic merriment

Far far too many names to mention insofar as wishing greetings, you know who you are. What a network of believers found on WP; rock solid in the mind, goodwill in the heart, and passionate in the soul regarding life in general, and the things of God in particular.

Image result for antique clocks

And to the unbeliever, atheist, or fencesitters who have frequented this site, and who have lost every argument as to the truth of scripture and the provable existence of God, thank you too.

You have made my (and many others) faith stronger. We have examined the claims of godlessness and false science, and have understood that the slight difference which cannot be bridged between man and monkey via biology, is as far as east is from west, impossible to bridge, and is utterly incapable of a man being a monkey’s uncle. Of course.

In short, like the good lady on the phone hearing your ‘claim’ about a faulty product, your claim has been denied. Your refund is rejected, as you have simply used the product wrong; you have not read the directions. The user of life is barking up the wrong tree.

To those who cry for ‘more proof!’ wake up, as life itself is your proof. Gold and coal, leather and wood, blood and water, ant and aardvark, turtle and rabbit, eagle and egret, swan and rat, bat and owl, male and female, hot and cold, reaping and sowing, man and woman, living and dying, all testify to the sole Giver of life, as well as the ability to differentiate between sense and nonsense. Which reminds me.

Gold, coal, and wood. Put these babies in a furnace and see what remains. These three, and the greatest of these is gold…………unless……you are freezing, and the wood is golden as it heats you, while the gold is useless. So yeah, imagine an accidental creation where the heat rejects the ‘seeds of wood,’ whereby the earth is left with only gold to eat like Cheerios.  But what heat? I degrasse,  oops, I mean digress. Sense or nonsense…

Yep, God made man and woman, male and female created He them, and oh yeah, horses of different colors. Gotta love God’s design. A woman with ten thousand babies in a ward will walk straight to her offspring by hearing the coo, or the smell of her own flesh and blood. Nonsense?

Wait, I thought this was a well wish, and here it is a sermon on conscience and the Creator. That’s right, Conscience, that intangible which knows God is, and that His word is good, very good even, more solid than gold, and a thousand times as valuable. But if unbelief was a food, then its disciples would die of starvation that can never feed the hungry.

But life on earth? Yes, God reaching low, condescending to a place which neither knows Him nor wants Him. Quite the affrontery. But He came and was refused by His own, yet received happily by the hungry. So as we enjoy eats and treats, let’s consider what really and lastingly satiates.

That fulness of time was, is, and ever shall be. Blessed be He that cometh in the name of the Lord. Emmanuel. God with us. Therefore, God bless us, each and every one. As He has.

And oh yeah, it’s December, but the very best of years end to you, as the minutes, hours, days, weeks, and months, are all extended courtesies of He who created time.

Go ahead and toast the holiday spirit, because its all about good news doncha know.

They are soooo not worthy……

(just another post in the series of marking out the absurd view points of they who have no taste for God, scripture, and decent people of faith. I do not apologize for pointing out such things. If you are a believer, this should warm you, if you are not a believer, try to be honest with yourself when reading, and face the music.)

I have seen many things on the webtoobz, good, bad, and ugly, but this commentary here, by a former alleged Christian, and now a promoter of AtheistsRus, who goes by the name of NAN, says this mind numbingly imbecilic comment:  (and no, I am neither calling such a one bozo or an imbecile.)

‘Why should there be any contemporaneous records relating to Jesus & to Paul? Neither of these two characters was worthy of any note whilst alive.’

I dare you to read that paragraph again and tell me with a straight face that this observation comes from anyone reading with a drop of unbiased reading comprehension. ‘Not worthy of any note whilst alive.’

Really? From Genesis to Revelation, the central theme is the goodness of God above all creation, plainly stated in the only reliable account of man’s origin, history, and destiny, proven completely and entirely in and through the Lord Jesus Christ, who truly is the only FIT man who lived, and whose life was testament to the reliable written word of God, and whose death demonstrated that God is for us, we who are such misfits as perfectly proven by NAN herself with such words of dark counsel.

Let’s repeat for the third time: ‘Neither of these two characters was worthy of any note whilst alive.’  Love that King’s english. Hate how it’s used here.

So NAN, and all ye who may agree with her, did you talk to the woman at the well who had a bundle of husbands yet who received daylight to her unexpected yet yearning heart and without a fee? Did you talk to the man born blind who received sight and saw the color blue for the first time? But perhaps you are like they who also saw ‘nothing worthy of note’ in a blind man seeing, and you would also accuse he who now sees of being a liar? Perhaps you should talk to his parents to see if he was actually born blind, just as the others did, as they then choked on their arrogance, ignorance, and feigned interest in truth.

Perhaps you neglected to speak to Nathanael, you know, the one who thought he was alone under a fig tree, far, far from the eyesight of man. Perhaps he could tell you what vision you lack, in seeing this Lord, this one who was not noteworthy.

Perhaps you forgot to notice that the Lord as a young man, visited the temple at the age of twelve, asked questions and had answers that came from eternity, so much so, that the learned rabbis were stunned. Perhaps it escaped your notice that His understanding is infinite. But nope, nothing of worth, nothing at all. The ramifications of ‘How can David’s son be David’s Lord’ must have slipped your notice.

The raising of His friends brother meant nothing to you either eh? After 4 days, when the body ‘stunk,’ after there was full proof that death welcomed one more customer because of sin, Lazarus lived again, after all, One who was the resurrection AND the life, spoke to him by name and said: Come forth!!!  You see, we have eyewitness testimony which would hold up in any court, yet Facts are most troublesome to they with agendas, preconceived notions, or prejudice. Darkness rejects light at all cost.

But no no NANNETTE, nothing to see here, happens all the time, sure it does, just watch CNN, where all modern gods agree with you. That’s real news doncha know, good news even, the gospel of the decadent who boast of same-sex marriage and boys who want to be girls. Paul spoke of such treachery, but it was Christ Jesus who suffered for sins once, the just for the unjust, whose precious blood washeth away sin, but nothing of note or worth. Sounds rather devilish NAN and friends to say the Lamb of God is either a fable or a lie, but lucky you, many ‘enlightened souls’ just like yourselves have camped with you, and find fault in everything that Christ and Paul did.

After all, there are many who currently occupy the right hand of God, a place reserved for deity, by One who alone is worthy, as all heaven sings praise and all earth groans. Who is worthy NAN and friends? You? Me? Anybody dare to say ‘yes, me?’ No, every mouth is stopped before Him as every knee shall bow. Mine in thanks, but yours in hypocritical embarrassment.

You may have missed that: EVERY knee shall bow. It’s not a maybe, it’s not a possibility, it’s not even highly likely, it’s a fact of life, because the Creator has told us, and His word is also very good. But right, nothing worthy of Christ Jesus, He who knew no sin but was MADE sin, as the last Adam made right what the first Adam made crooked.

And of course the most spiritual man this world will ever know, Reb Saul of Tarsus, then the apostle Paul, was also worthless of any note while he was alive. He who was in the business of tossing into jail believers who had merely believed the record of scripture, because HE thought they were meshumed, traitors to the God of Israel, only to learn that it was HE himself who was antagonistic to the grace of God.

NO man alive could have dreamed up the content in Paul’s writings, speaking of this grace that makes the unjust just, speaking of this God who gladly justifies the ungodly, yet, without compromising His own intrinsic eternal perfection. Nobody on earth left to his own devices could have penned the letter to the Romans. Thank you Paul, and thank you Lord for this man who reveals more clearly your wisdom and glory, but right, nothing to see here….

It was told years ago how the elite of Harvard law were stymied at the powerhouse of logic found in Romans, but right, nothing to see here.

‘Now Saul was breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the believers………..’

‘There were forty men who conspired with an oath that they would not eat until Saul was killed………..’     (Hint: they did not starve to death)

‘Though I speak with the tongues of men and angels………………’

‘There are bodies celestial, and there are bodies terrestrial.’

‘Now the law is good if a man use it lawfully.’

‘Now the law worketh wrath.’

‘Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift.’

‘Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.’

Only a mind blind to history, the combined emolument of scripture, the life and times of the patriarchs, the epitaphs of men, the various St. Paul Hospitals, (inspired by the unnoteworthy apostle) the very words ‘mercy, grace, peace,’ words which when understood in the context of Saul/then Paul, would make any heart to sing, only a callous soul could say: ‘nothing of note in the lives of Christ or Paul,‘ and to any who holds such a myopic opinion, I would add, you may want to rethink such midget thinking, with apologies to Dopey, and revisit the holy scriptures, wherein lies the keys to life, and which reveals perfectly the wayward hearts of all men.

Unnoteworthy such as Christ of Paul? Yeah, I call that wayward.

More fruit loops

Congratulations johnzande. Yes it is perfectly scriptural to kick tail and take names, since YOU said this regarding a certain president named Donald Trump and ALL Christians. Got that? ALL Christians. Your words. You named him. You named others. You named me in that group of ALL. And by association, you have named ALL good people who I rub shoulders with, many of whom blog in this zip code.

Not sure you actually know any believers in your family, town, or wherever, (you know, not the once a year Reader’s Digest type like you who do not know Genesis from Revolution) but since you draw caricatures and malign people of faith using a pen with no ink, you no doubt are speaking of believers such as Wally, James, Mel, Tricia, ib22, Ctom, XP, Julie, -x, etc. etc, in your attempted demolition of God and people of faith.

Whether he is a good, bad, ugly, lousy, or even great president is not the point sir. What is relevant and moreso germane is YOUR assessment of good people, people who have never harmed a fly, people who have no mental health issues, and people who understand the allowable government of men, and people who understand the ultimate governments of God. But here ya go, your words, for you to choke on, and for others to see what the atheistic brain thinks of decent people, and I quote:

“and this human stain (Trump) still has their unwavering support. The hypocrisy is stunning, and they’re all just one bad idea away from picking up an assault rifle themselves and going on a murder spree.”

Did you catch that reader? Let me emphasize. ‘All. ALL. ALL.’ ‘ALL just one bad idea away from picking up an assault rifle themselves and going on a murder spree.’

This statement is from the life and times of pure atheism. Congratulations ye fine example of modern thinking, but of course, this be thinking without the brain attached.

In a court of law, any jury with half a drop of common sense would toss you 30 days in the hole for such stupidity cloaked as intellect. They may even forego the bread and water. Where is your EVIDENCE sir of such evil implications? Where is your chart that maps out such deviance of ALL Christians being ‘one bad idea away from going on a murder spree?’

I submit sir, that it would be equally egregious for a believer to say that ALL atheists are ‘one bad idea away from going on a murder spree,’ but this common sense no doubt escapes you, as well as the sad fact that you cannot understand how Christians are fair-minded, even toward criminals and atheists.

There are bad Christians compared to Christ, still, they would not dream of hurting a fly, and there are lousy atheists compared to Dawkins (lol) who would also not dream of hurting a mouse. Yes, there are atheists who murder, and there have been so-called Christians who have murdered, but to put them ALL in the same depraved basket is indicative of a mind gone sideways.

But fortunately for zande, he is not alone in his condemnation of good people, for others have also said with pure delight, they who have supped with him in heart and soul, that Christians (ALL) are retarded in the mind and should stay away from children, who at any moment could wipe out a town at Olympic speed with a gun, BECAUSE they are weak minded Christians.

There is the pseudo professor with superstitious taboos (who has said identical things), there is the guy whose cement ball cap whose weight has dented his skull to the degree rationale has gone on holiday (who has agreed with identical things), there are the women who boast of their knowledge of how temporal lobes work, and how the Christian is programmed like an unthinking computer, there are spineless booksellers who promote man as gods, there are swarms of others who say men had gills, but got tired of the seven seas, there are they who are so mentally challenged that they find ALL Christians as people needing a crutch, truly, misery loves company.

What sane mind on earth would suggest with such audacity that ALL Christians are but ‘a bad idea away from mass murder?’

Dear reader and Christian friend, THIS is why it is important to blog about the vigilance necessary to combat that depraved learning aka atheism aka stupidity, because it is contagious, and because they who cannot think an original thought on their own, need the comraderie of their own kin to justify their perverted views. Perversion, yes, and I say that with great restraint, for the insidiousness is far worse, because it is cloaked as INTELLECT.

Will zande apologize for his ALL Christians comment? Will his brethren side with decency and order and say: ‘zande, you have gone waaaay too far this time.’  I doubt it. At least not in public, but many will agree with me, for it is hardly a matter that needs determined taking longer than three seconds flat.

Neither were they thankful….

(note: to the unbeliever, believer, atheist, or whosoever will)

Leading up to the quintessential American holiday, it gives us pause and cause to recollect the many ways, and thousands of times, Thanksgiving can be rendered. Unfortunately, far too many of us only thank themselves. Ouch.

I speak specifically from the platform of life’s opportunities daily, no, minute by minute, in rendering thanks for all the offerings of life. Someone left the power on so you would have light, heat, coffee. Thanks. Someone worked the service station so you could have fuel, air for the tires, and coffee. Thanks.

Closer to home though, we could always gives thanks for the ability to see, feel, touch, perceive, think, and most of all create. We are but little creators, and this fact escapes even the most stubborn of hearts. We choose to create peace, art, war, environments that welcome or dismiss God; we choose to create a life devoid of thanks, or full of thanks.

‘Thanks’ assumes a response. You sneeze, ‘God bless you’ is a common response, and ‘thank you’ is the next obvious response, regardless of whether one believes in God or not. It is a well wish, that’s all, and only the most proud or self made indoctrinated fool would say: ‘I don’t need your thanks, as God is but an imaginary figure.’

‘So neither were they thankful.’ I love how the sovereignty of God can be seen in a simple sneeze, innocuous as it seems, yet in these unbridled moments of life, the unexpected idiotic and unrehearsed hearts of men are revealed.  ‘Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.’  Saying nothing would be a far cry better than saying something so mindless and insulting as ‘I don’t need your God to bless me.’

I look up at the night sky and see order, beauty, reliability, awe, magnificence, and I say ‘thanks.’ The impressions of the images are a reminder that for thousands of years, I have pitched my tent with they who have also looked up, such as Abraham and his offspring, and see the same innumerable company of the star studded canopy as they, and have also agreed that God’s word and promises are good. Thank you.

Life requires, no, demands thankfulness, and if there be no God to ultimately thank, then mankind is the most miserable of creatures, for we have had dominion over every living thing, and have pillaged the earth and seas, for what?

I think of the silverback ape here, and if he could talk he may say: ‘No thank you, I am nothing like you.’ He would be correct, and we would be liars to say he was mistaken, thank God.

‘Neither were they thankful, but were vain in their imaginations.’ Ha, how true is this! From that intended tower that would reach heaven, (and where God said no!) to the modern day PhD’s who write ‘peer reviewed papers’ to dismiss the Creator from His own creation, and do so with such bravado, they were/are both vain and stupidly imaginative.

Takes quite the imagination to ignore why eagles do not build nests underwater, and why whales cannot juggle grapefruits, but in this, I am thankful for understanding the nature and purposes of God Almighty. He simply made the ‘kinds,’ thank you very much.

Even a child with poor manners will invariably let out a ‘thank you’ for the cookie given by mom. So what is our excuse as adults, when we refuse to give thanks for life and all things? It’s simple. Our rock heads and stubborn hearts have stolen our common sense to the degree that we cannot see that ‘thanks’ demands reciprocation.

Even the Lord Himself took pause of a certain group who found His favour by having a malady removed, yet only one returned to give thanks to God. Truly an observation worthy of noting. Are you of the nine who said “eh, no big deal,’ or ‘Thank you sir?’

‘Neither were they thankful’ is but a sign of the times, and we are embarrassingly reminded: an evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign.’ Tis a sad day on earth when there is not a man to give thanks. And yes, to the women who are cut out of a greater cloth, you have no hard feeling when I assert that you are included in the ‘mankind.’  Thank you that you understand, and you are mature as to life.

So in this traditional Thanksgiving week, may we think of new ways to render thanks, not only for a country of freedom and the privilege to hold the pages of scripture, but to appreciate the thousands of things we take for granted.

Life summons a response to the Creator. So what’s it gonna be, thanks, or no thanks?

And now for the news

Today there are spectacular fires in the western US, ice storms in the east, recent hurricanes in the south, flooding in places one would not expect, snow in the north, cold where one would not expect, and heat where one would not expect. Of course.

Beautiful and tragic. awful and awesome. How true is God’s word, that seed-time and harvest, cold and heat shall not cease, as long as the earth remains. Truth is ye television viewer, the earth shall not always remain. This thing we know as time is borrowed. It is fleeting. It is quicker than quick.

Doubt this? Just ask the gals who danced the halls of Paris or New York 70 years ago in their svelte bodies and their beauty, as they today do not have the power to move a leg muscle to do a wheelchair shuffle. Oh how time vanishes like a vapor. God had the drop on ‘vaping’ long before smoking was fashionable. Of course.

And let’s not forget the earthquakes, those clearing of the throat hiccups by the under belly of earths carpeting. All in all, the earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof. We are ALL on borrowed time. What Mr. Timex or Mrs. Rolex would give for another days breath, so as I enjoy the snowfall while others curse the inconveniences caused to them……this could be the day that you and I have seen our last infomercial, or snowfall.

This could be the day the music died. So here’s three cheers to the God of nature, creation and redemption. Of course. He doeth all things well.  Can we truly then say: the Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord.

In the meantime, we press on, doing good, giving thanks, keeping an eye out for thieves who peddle fear, doubt, strife, and they who would wage war against God Himself, by stealing the title-deed to the earth, and keeping it in the rusty vaults of Darwin, Nye, DeGrasse and all other cosmic liars.

Love me that white blanket of snow btw. God’s got this thing covered. Of course. Now its time….back to you in the studio.

Thieves I tellya

(just another brick off the wall in the dismantling of godlessness)

The interpretive rights of scripture do not belong to liars and thieves; to be sure, that uncompromising and ever so sharp monarch of books bloodies the hands of they who would trifle with its sacred contents, thereby exposing the proud, the many, most even, from the few and soft of heart who bow to the revelation of Almighty God.

A fool may fear an earthworm, an ant, a black snake, a butterfly, or a harmless spider, yet have not one ounce of fear in his body toward He who gave the spider legs like an octopus, the ant a work ethic second to none, and a worm who irrigates the earth with his passages.

The FEAR of God however is not your garden variety ‘ooh, yuck, eek, shriek,’ but a posture of mind and heart which humbly recognizes and submits to the owner of the alphabet, the originator of arithmetic, and the supplier of all storehouses of wisdom and knowledge.

Got that ye skeptic? Your wisdom and knowledge is borrowed. You are not smart enough to stretch the lines out upon earth’s boundaries. You are not smart enough to devise a plan that keeps the four winds in place. You have not one whit of engineering sense to structure the great ice walls. You are embarrassingly incompetent to make a tornado, a hurricane, a seismic shock from below, or give directions to the lightning. You are clueless as to the fountains of the great deep, discovered a few years ago, but mentioned so casually in Genesis oh so many thousands of years ago.  God is the true Scientist.

Modern ‘Science’ is a snare and a delusion with pretended smarts and fancy data theories which if was food, a man would starve in a week. Godless science is evil to the core, and its proponents grasshoppers who cannot leap over a peanut. (true science is the correct revelation of creation, using of course, facts, our senses, things testable and repeatable, and let’s not overlook common sense)

Yet, still, you do not fear God. You do not give Him the courtesy that you give to the eagle in flight, as you look upon its majestic awe and effortless flight. WHERE pray tell did you get such a brain that commands you to look upon creation with such disdain? Not from the Creator, so then where?

Is this then an exaggeration when I say  ‘you look upon creation with such disdain?’ Actually, it is not strong enough. We have water as the drink of life, yet you think the fountain of youth resides in pretended science and perpetual theories which provide endless questions while avoiding a million answers already given, so yeah, a world of water is a daily indictment against the stout of heart who refuse to give God thanks.

Yet what does God do? He giveth more water. He giveth more grace. He giveth to they who are both unthankful and unworthy. THIS is the God we reverentially fear because He is an awesome God.  And oh there is this: the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

Still refuse to acknowledge Him? You sir, ma’am, are most unwise. You say He does not exist while giving you every bit of evidence and proof? You sir, ma’am are a liar. Put THAT on your resume in capital letters. You want believers to be like you, free in the mind of life’s owner so you can pretend you are truly advanced, sooo unlike the morons who built the great pyramids and brass musical instruments long before Herb Alpert puckered his lips?  You sir, ma’am, are a thief. And Giza condemns our ignorance perfectly.

Don’t be a liar and a thief. But who can boast of interpretive rights to scripture? No one. Boasting is not a good plan. There is however this thing called reading and understanding, which takes into consideration first, that God is, and that His word is good, and secondly, that the human heart is built in such a way that it recognizes that the voice of nature, the level, the plumb-line, and the compass, all attest to the precision and truth of scripture, as it is, and as it should be.

But go ahead and argue. Your gripe will not be with me.

Interpret this

As was mentioned elsewhere, to Doug actually, that a few thoughts would be forthcoming regarding a common theme and scripture, that being, that there are far too many interpretations and ideas that suggest the entire text incredible, for after all, everybody has an opinion, and that many opinions supposedly testify to weakness or the alleged shortcomings of the monarch of books.

However, the holy scriptures are not a book of opinions, theories, assumptions, or suppositions. It is a compilation, a determined set, a book of acts, facts, good and bad deeds by good and bad kings, God’s promises, His covenantal promises with Israel, a book of verifiable geography, history, literature, poetry, political stunts, wisdom, entirely accurate prophecy, science, doctrine, but above all, truth in all things, and truth within the grasp of all who read and understand.  It is only our opinions of those facts that cause mischief.

But ah you say, your understanding is better than mine, and her interpretation is not as good as his. So is it now God’s fault that we are sloppy thinkers and readers? Do we now dismiss the whole because some have tampered with parts? Perish the thought, perhaps we have not been careful enough in our conclusions in the areas in which we disagree.

But there is a huge difference between interpretation and understanding. ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.’ Not really much to interpret if you understand English, but MENE MENE TEKEL UPHARSIN, now there is a matter that needs to be investigated. And it was, and from that correct interpretation came the correct understanding.

I am of the opinion that scripture is 95 per cent understandable, and the 5 is also there for the taking, but far too many write scripture off entirely because THEY do not understand the writing on the wall regarding the 05. For goodness sake, the apostles were clueless at times standing in the presence of the Lord, but they understood LATER, and therein is a valuable clue in gleaning the gems from the incomparable book. Any understanding of value is truly worth the search, and even more so waiting for. There are seven days of the week, and Tuesday does not have bragging rights.

God does not force His way, like a fisherman He draws, quietly, not upsetting the waters so to speak, till our minds are settled and we can receive, but not all are at the same spot on the boat or the pier. People make artificial enemies because they do not agree as to the shape of the earth or justification by faith; good examples, but scripture is far more worthier of engaging, and Martin Luther, John Calvin, or the moderns such as McArthur, Hagee, Osteen, would weep at the feet of Paul the apostle for how much they got wrong.  Still, it’s better to be on the train.

When we read of the cherubim in Genesis for the first time, we must honestly admit ‘what are they?’ and that is fine. But scripture is its own guide, we learn a little more here, a little more there, in Exodus, Ezekiel, in Hebrews, and ending in the Revelation, all revealing more and more of the purpose and nature of God Almighty, as He slowly draws the earnest reader who has a soft heart. God is never in a rush nor late. Sobriety of mind is essential to correct conclusions, but far too many stop at the inns of unreliable emotions, and rest areas of godless science, useless theories, and baseless assumptions, drinking unprovable ‘facts’ which result in drunken conclusions.

Need proof? Sure. Whales walked on earth like dogs. A drunken conclusion. God is not a God of love because a gunman kills. Unreliable emotion.

But is this related to ‘interpreting scripture?’ Yes indeed, and far too many Christians are affected by the infectious waste of guesswork because they think it is spiritual to straddle the fence to appear intellectual, to appear ‘up to date’ with wireless technology as it were, instead of actually walking and talking to a human being in person. Whales are whales and will always be whales. God is good and will always be good. We live in a sinful world, and this explains the 95 per cent.

This is why there are so many unfounded ‘interpretations,’ they which are concluded without all the necessary parts. God’s truth is easy on the ears, and sadly, we do disservice when our context is missing a few doughnuts from the dozen.

If someone lectured you in the Croatian language, and you only knew Spanish, you obviously would need an interpreter, but still you may have no understanding in the subject matter, so while one may hear what is said, he still may be tone-deaf as to what it means.

Some disciples heard thunder. They did not hear thunder. They THOUGHT they heard thunder. Imagine now the hearsay of they who heard the apostles say THEY heard it thundered, and now you have one big gossip fest. Years and years of unreliable GOSSIP could have turned into a bonfire, then a forest fire, and you could easily see the carnage.

But ultimately, lazy thinking leads to lousy interpretations, and far too many believers are content with crumbs when they can have a slice. Denominations are proof of this fact, with some majoring in minors. That said, lazy thinking in the scriptures is far better than ‘correct’ thinking about atheism.  Still, the better way is to grow from babehood to maturity, setting aside elementary principles, not that they have no merit, but that God’s word is far more instructional, richer, deeper, valuable, and of course a thousand times more satisfying.

I do believe that God honors honest requests, and hears the cries from our hungry hearts. We know when we read something if it is a clear voice of truth, a clanging cymbal, or just plain thunder. We know when we have not only the interpretation, but the understanding. The entrance of thy word giveth light.

In the end, there are no defects with God or scripture. But arguments? Ha, that’s the nature of the beast. Some are better than others. This is biblical, and I’m guessing fair-minded people will agree with this post.

Professing themselves to be wise….

Please take a few minutes to consider the greater ramifications of swallowing University ‘findings,’ and putting God’s word in the dumpster so to speak. One doesn’t pick and choose what parts of scripture they find tasty, or do they?

-from BioLogos (Francis Collins)

-The universe was created by God, approximately 14 billion years ago. (Yeak ok, Francis you were there. And you did the math)
-The properties of the universe appear to have been precisely tuned for life. (Ya think?)

-‘unfortunately the concepts of Adam and Eve as the literal first couple and the ancestors of all humans simply ‘do not fit the evidence.’ (uh oh, Mr. Collins, you seem to be doing battle with God Almighty, who expressly said He created Adam from the dust of the ground) 

-While the precise mechanism of the origin of life on earth remains unknown, it is possible that the development of living organisms was part of God’s original creation plan. (Wow, that’s some serious detective work)

-Once life began, no special further interventions by God were required. (Apparently Collins never read the sun of Joshua standing still, or the countless ways in which He aided His people, in battle, in dreams, through very words.)

-Humans are part of this process, sharing a common ancestor with the great apes. (I protest. I have more in common with the cunning whitetail deer………However I got feet.)

-Humans are unique in ways that defy evolutionary explanations and point to our spiritual nature. This includes the existence of the knowledge of right and wrong and the search for God. (Yeah, big news here, read that in Genesis, and see it every day)

Note how Collins states the ‘PRECISE mechanism’ remains unknown, he then ASSERTS boldly that Adam PRECISELY never lived (through the HGP,) thus making the godless science of atheism palatable. Guess what Mr. Collins?  Adam lived. Deal with it. Scripture said he lived. Christ spoke of him as a historical certainty, as did the incomparable apostle, and brilliant minded Paul, who knew more science than all the godless atheists combined.

I would rather take God’s word over Adam’s existence than modern man’s opinion that he didn’t, hiding behind ‘projects’ which only straddle the fence to cohabit with godless science and so-called PhD’s who obviously know more than God….

But note the PROCESS…….the common ancestry with apes………..uh huh, ok, sure, King Solomon had apes and peacocks brought to him because they were his bird friends and ape cousins……….

How convenient to share the life and times of God’s creation with animals, that is, if we only admit that God  gave man dominion over all living creatures. And He did. And Adam was the first man. Period.

(But waiting for the day when Collins will admit he made a crucial error in his calculations, he missed something, but that would make him an embarrassment to academia, for it needs the scriptures to be not true. In this Mr. Collins is an ally of godlessness, perhaps unintentional, but still,  c’mon Francis, get on board with Genesis, completely.)

C’mon get a spine

Like most correct thinking believers, I tend to blog as I see fit, speaking of things current and past, considering the future, but always telling the truth. This is uncomfortable to be sure, and because of this confidence, many take a simple comment as ATTACKS. Saw it again just yesterday.

A fella did a post on Halloween, but needed the scriptures to make his point that it is actually Christians who are SCARY as he referenced the word of God in his usual mocking manner.

Being the decent person I am, I pointed out the bloggers hypocrisy in using the scriptures to tell HIS truth, but deny the same scriptures that tell him THE truth. HIS truth is of course one that is inconsistent with the truth of God’s word, such as saying Moses never lived, there was no Exodus from Egypt, no Joseph in a pit, no Daniel in a den of lions, no handwriting on the wall, no birth of Christ, no Calvary, and no empty tomb. Well, you get the point.

So is my citing an unbelievers usage of scripture and his comic book mentality toward the truth of God’s word a synonym for ATTACKING? I think not, not even in the least. Worse yet, the once named former Christian, now a proud member of the AtheistsR-us club, erased my gentle comment, and blocked any further dialog. He then ran to post his bravery to another atheist kin, boasting of how intellectually superior they are, and how he withstood the ATTACK from yours truly.

Give me a break.

I call this spineless behaviour, having no backbone, unable to discourse, and completely unable to justify a once held position. One doesn’t merely turn away from THE faith once delivered, and expect that people will not challenge your now new non-belief. One simply cannot cut off his right toe, and expect others to not notice, or care. The body of Christ is a living organism, and it appears far too many have confused this with an organization, then blame God and scripture for their own misunderstandings, failures, and shortcomings.

His loss, just pointing out the ultimate hypocrisy, but c’mon. The cowardice cannot be emphasized enough that far too many who have deconned from the faith, need to get a spine, grow up, and face the music. They may have ‘deconverted,’ they may enjoy the camaraderie of others in their same sinking ship, but the ‘attacks’ they imagine are only self-created because of their own twisted view of God and scripture. It’s that simple.

Their projection on Christians of their own dim-lit views, will not cut it. When a former Christian tells a believer he ‘is unstable and double minded,’ he is using God’s word to tell HIS truth, but is not seeing his very hypocrisy in citing a book wherein he sees nothing but lies and errors. At least have a spine and admit this.

Go quote another book to prove your point or to make your case. Leave God’s word alone. Why? Because you pretty much gave it up for Lent. You have put aside the chocolate so to speak. What you once claimed to love, you now loathe, but you cannot tolerate believers for their enjoyment of the sweet life as you call them delusional, and you are never happy until they become decons like you, and REALLY enjoy life, apart from the Creator, and His word. Yeah, good luck with that.

Is spineless then a good word? In this context yes, and for what it’s worth, I have noticed that in the atheist/infidel/unbelievers world view of evangelism, there is the utmost intolerance for common sense, the ability to reason, the carelessness of comparing things, and the lost-as-fog understanding of scripture itself.

I have never read/met/ or heard a single atheist who told the truth according to the scriptures. They can’t. So it would appear this word they like to toss around ATTACK is only their view of themselves as they are looking in the mirror and swearing they see you.

Beep. No. The mirror of God’s word reveals truth. If you are froward, God will be revealed as froward. But notice, God is not froward. To the merciful, God will be revealed as merciful. To the merciless, God will be revealed as merciless. A Christian does not see God as a ghoulish monster such as they who see God as a green faced Freddie Kreuger. ‘Unto the pure all things are pure,’ and our decon friends would be better served to seek the more excellent way, instead of revelry in confusing Halloween with Hallowed be thy name….

(btw, good people know I do not ban or block. Moderation when necessary is a useful tool however, as some have proved they cannot be trusted with the liberty that freedom affords. This site will not be a host to vile and pornographic crap. And yes, I am an excellent judge of this)

Yes, your honour

Of the many things that crack me up, this the more. Since mankind is made in the image of God, it would behoove us to carefully pay attention to simple relationships, relationships here on earth, which reveal the sublime and greater relationships of divine truths.

On earth as it is in heaven kind of things.

A man named Eugene is a Judge on the Circuit court. He is also a husband to Marlene, father to Sarah, Michael, Josh, and Karen. His brothers are Joe, John, Jerome, Anthony, and his sisters are Caroline, Rebecca, Gabriella, and Jennifer. He is uncle to Louis, Lauren, Darla, Mary, Zach, Ashley, Patrick, and Rose. Eugene is also nephew to Francis, and he is called ‘Coach’ by the boys in the chess club.

His brothers do not call him ‘Your Honor’ but Gene, unless of course, they stood before him in the court, in which case it would only be proper to forego the congeniality in light of respect. Francis would not dream of calling him ‘Coach,’ ‘Your honor,’ ‘Bro,’ but ‘Uncle Gene.’ Sarah and Michael would not call him Gene, but ‘Dad.’

Caroline and Becky would not call him ‘Uncle,’ but ‘Gene,’ and I hope we are seeing the obvious pattern and implication of greater things. Names define relationships, and when I hear unbelievers, atheists, or your garden variety of infidels cite God as ‘El Shaddai,’ ‘El Elyon,’ ‘Jehovah,’ or even, ‘Yahweh,’ I cringe with embarrassment for these lost minds, who are clueless as to simple relationships, and how one should address another, and why.

But it’s a sign of the times I suppose  when you hear 10-year-old Tommy call his mother Julie by her first name, as if they are best friends. Uh hello? She is ‘Mom,’ you have many others you can call a friend. Lack of respect abounds, much more toward God.

And this is precisely WHY the unbeliever is lost as fog as to the relational names of God in scripture, as if they are one plug and play. I have already demonstrated above that a Judge on the bench IN THAT CAPACITY is a far cry different from the role of ‘brother’ or ‘uncle.’ He may be uncle or brother, but not THERE.

Simply put, if one does not see God as Creator, FIRST, as the supreme over ALL that is, then surely you can understand how and why this same person can never appreciate, nor understand God’s relationships with they who have entered into covenant with Him.

Since the JUDGE is a bit more knowledgeable than you, since He knows the intricacies of law better than you, since He knows things about the case that you do not, since He has already adjudicated millions of cases with perfect justice and judgement, since He has withstood every grievance and dismissed all pettiness summarily, since He set in motion law in the first place, since He has heard every btiching gripe under the sun, let’s just say He is in a far better condition to act without blame, and to express His perfection by His NAMES implying uncle, brother, coach, Judge, which all reveal the wheels within the wheels of Almighty God.

You looking for fault with God? Good luck with that, the same old story of sinful man, sitting in judgement of the Creator. Not too smart. So the next time you hear of the circus acts and clown activity of people blaming God for this that, or the other, just remember the all instructive names of El Elyon (God most High), El Shaddai (God of the breast), which are divinely absent from the very first words of scripture: in the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Of course, as it should be. One God over and above all, with no relationship yet established. Such are the jewels of scripture as God reveals here a little and there a little, until today, this God, this El Shaddai, is known as the glorious God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. The apostle John knew this as he drew near to the Lord’s bosom on that fateful night. Peter yet for a moment (he would learn later) thought God was one of rightful and immediate retribution, but was humbly corrected; you see there is this thing called grace.

Rightful yes, but not immediate; there is this thing called grace.

And to follow suit, it is equally notable how this name is despised among the nations, as if there is a blemish on this Judge. Divine context is always, Always, ALWAYS missing from the lips of unbelievers, who want answers from scripture while not believing one word of scripture……….To mock without understanding is the highest of crimes.

They make no distinction between uncle Gene and El Elyon, coach or God Almighty. Then there is always the 4-year-old daughter of the bailiff who sees the black robe and intuitively says with careful and soft-spoken humility: ‘Hello your honour……’   She got it right, while the atheists spoke with disdain and called him Genie. God Almighty is not your sideshow.

Out of the mouths of babes thou hast perfected praise. And yes, the faith of Daniel was but that of a believing babe too. Some things are ageless.

The internment of the internet

‘Knowledge will increase.’ So said scripture thousands of years ago by the inspired writers who were led by He who lives outside of time. God knows what He is talking about. Always. He is never wrong. The Creator of numbers, letters, sight, length, depth, weight, height, width, water, blood, bones, sinew, intellect, reason, wisdom, atmospheric pressure, rain, cold, heat, gold, and all the dotted orbs in the sky, has not left His creatures in the dark as to Himself and His ways, nope, there is this made in the image of God thing, where all men, that is All men, one more time, ALL men, are without excuse as to the very existence of a Supreme creator.  There is NO EXCUSE for man’s stupidity in this regard, None. It is never a matter of learning, because of the divine DNA upon the conscience.

A person can gaggle, haggle, boogie, gobble, goggle, and google to their heart’s content, and have their biases confirmed in .0004444572 seconds flat, and remain ignorant and unlearned having more ‘knowledge’ than all the tea in China, yet remain idiots.  The information superhighway is clogged and littered with dunces, and is the lone place where atheism finds a friend in useless data, video, essays, and the latest god, aka so-called science, and those other wannabe celebrities, who must at any expense and effort, make themselves relevant at the expense of God’s ahem, irrelevance. Nice try Bozo.

Am I correct in this assessment? Of course, as common sense rules any day of the week. Ever seen a picture of the ISS, the International Space station, that tin can supposedly racing above us at plus 17, 000 mph? That’s 5 miles a second. But we have pictures. It’s on the internet. Who believes this crap? Have you ever seen an American fighter pilot at Mach 1? Insane speed. Yeah, the ISS has that beat with ease. Puhleeze. Need I remind you of the alleged Tesla red convertible sports car hurling through space in cruise control??? We have pictures. We will believe anything………..because the internet sez so.

The ‘knowledge’ of this does not make it true. It is spoon fed knowledge the same way Disgraced Tyson and the other clown Bill Nye speak of things well out of their mental reach, as they sound like fools from the Outer Limits.

They preach the impossible, and do not believe the credible. Their science lies are fraudulent claims that any panel of sober-minded jurors would reject because of pure speculation. Wishful thinking does not live in the world of sanity. Your trillions of miles and billions of years are the very worst of pretended ‘knowledge,’ but far too many have choked on the information, and are stranded without water, gasping for air by the wayside, trouble is, they do not know it.

The immediate sugar fix of alleged mental superiority because of the false xillions of data bytes at one fingertips tells them: ‘You are smart.’ Google says you are smart. You click, cut, paste, rinse, repeat, and presto chango, your world view is confirmed: there is no God!!!

Wow good for you. Knowledge will increase, and guess what? The love of many will also grow cold. Little boys in girls bathrooms? That’s ice-cold I tell ya and Dopey of the dwarfs would blush in shame at such vile promotions. But thanks to the internet, the speed of such treacherous deeds gain traction, and suggest to the minds of they in drunken stupors, that THEY are the elite, and society is changing for the better. Intellectual bastards I tell ya.

But nooooo, people will not admit that such ‘knowledge’ was documented long ago, and that the heart of men would be exposed, because God KNOWS what is in men. The internet and its ‘knowledge’ have supplanted the knowledge of God, because men worship themselves. They would not admit this of course, but godless science for instance has produced a generation of MEEBOTS, those annoying people who must be the center of attention wherever you go.  After all, only they know how to pour milk correctly over Cheerios.

You know the type. You see them online too. They said that God did not create the heavens and the earth. Heck, they know more than God, of course they are correct. Ha! But professing themselves to be wise, they became FOOLS. Not my words, just reporting the facts. Takes quite the strong man to remove He who created the weight of all mountains.

So the internet suggests that atheism for example is that strong man. Where is my laff button? Knowledge will increase. There will always be one more video to watch that PROVES men flew like birds, whales walked like dogs, and eagles built children’s swing sets, yep, one more lecture by a self-described expert who has an audience of fools that says there is no God! Yep, he must be right, because everyone shakes their head in derision and laughs at the idea that God created a whale for the water, an eagle for the air, and man as the pinnacle of God’s creation. (Can you hear the snickering jowls in the audience as the godless enjoy their intellect apart from the Creator…)

Fortunately and thankfully, the word of God does not rely on the internet to give and keep its strength. It is self-contained, true, verifiable to the hearts of good men, historically perfect, spiritually accurate, prophetically light years ahead and always true, and is the only place you will find on earth where God justifies the ungodly, while at the same time giving him favour, the favor of kings even. Such is the incomparable grace of God.

But you have heard that the internet is the place where religion supposedly comes to die? Ha! How about the place where all fraudulent miscreants are exposed in light of the glory of God and the eternal truth of scripture.

I’ll leave you with one forceful example. Only one is necessary. A thousand people are in a lecture hall listening to a so-called internet expert/mocker/unbeliever/evolutionist/atheist as he gives his 200 reasons WHY there is no God and scripture can’t be trusted since it was written by stone age dunces.

He says the idea that there was foretold a trading system contingent upon a ‘mark of the beast upon the right hand or forehead’ is ludicrous, impossible, stupid, guesswork, or wishful thinking to dupe people into following a non-existent God. After 20 minutes of laughter, he opens up the floor and every single person in the auditorium expresses utter disdain at scripture and agrees with the PhD that God’s ‘word’ is only meant for the mental infirm.

After the circus abated, one small voice arises and says:  ‘You have never seen your great, great-grandfather sir, but you know he existed. How? By your parents word and by faith. But here you are, embarrassing yourself by mocking things in which you are but clueless. Faith is the operating system of life. You drove your car, having faith that the car coming in the opposite direction will not turn suddenly in your lane and crush you. (the audience became more still)

Well guess what? God’s word is even better than your father’s father, and his father’s word. The mark of the beast has long been set in motion by the very technology that you worship, and the cashless society was foretold long before Jeff Bezos was in diapers. There are no flaws in God Himself, nor in scripture sir. God cannot lie, and it is mighty nice of Him to give us a heads up on things that WILL occur on His earth. That’s His earth sir, where He is well aware of the actions of kids on His own playground, the same way a loving parent sees everything in his own backyard.

Embrace faith. It is God-given. God’s goosebumps are always good, and they make you feel alive as to Him, His purpose, His image, your image, and the complete superiority of man over all beasts. Of course. God’s word will always tell the truth, the internet? eh, a whole lot of cryptic and twisted opinions all striving for the attention not meant for beggars to have.

Don’t be a beggar. There is always a more excellent way, and to live as a godless infidel trying to find fault in God’s word is the very worst of choices. Yeah, I’m talkin to you ye self-made Professor. Why? Because while knowledge increases, and reams and reams of url’s are coded, truth never changes. THIS is the difference that makes man so close in understanding, and so far in understanding.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. The journey between the mind and the heart is closer than you think. Take the leap and become truly smart. Tell godlessness to ‘begone,’ for truth is a much more steadier and faithful friend. And oh, btw, God’s word is always good, and will still be good, long after the internet takes its last search.’

Bless that little nut

Collectively, all the atheists in the world do not have the IQ of a peanut, with apologies to the little nut.

Why? Because intelligence belongs to, and springs from, He who created the brain.

If you do not believe this, you are simply nuts.

Pittsburgh slaughter

You have heard on national television the merciless and senseless unabated murder by a monster in a synagogue on a rainy Saturday morning in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. A baby naming ceremony. Heart wrenching. He targeted a Jewish community exclusively. 11 people confirmed dead.

But did you notice these hick town (cited thus by atheists in times past) SWAT teams, and Pgh. Police, and how they ran TOWARD the danger, and apprehended the shooter lickety split? 4 police wounded. Did you notice the rapid response and total professionalism of EMT’s during this regional nightmare?  Hicks huh.

Some who are familiar with death scenes said it was the most horrific they have witnessed in their careers. The man (no I will not lower myself and call him a gentleman as the media usually does so thoughtlessly) was wounded and taken to a hospital. Not just to A hospital, but to one of the finest medical centers in the country. Are you listening ye godless?

This man whose sole desire was to ‘kill all the Jews’ was treated by no doubt, some Jewish doctors. Try explaining that in a world with no higher call, no morals. Why should a monster be tended to in such a fashion?  The Hippocratic oath, doncha know. Ethics and code of conduct blind to circumstances.

Go hide your head in shame ye godless atheist, because if the survival of the fittest was true, then the Jewish MD would be within his rights to slice apart the heart of such a ruthless devil. But no, the oath says, ‘the righteous tend to life,’ even tending to the life of such a one as a murdering bastard. It is not within the worldview of an MD to arbitrality decides who lives and who dies. THAT is reserved for the depraved.

But Pittsburgh, the city of champions, or so we are told regarding the Penguins hockey team, the Pgh Steelers football squad, or the Pirates baseball club, were champions of a far better caliber today.  One local and state leader after another laid their politics aside, and spoke of evil intent of the heart. NOT a time to speak of the evil intent of a gun, which there is none, but good job Pittsburghers, you represented the commonwealth of PA well, and the country I’m guessing also.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Netanyahu sent condolences immediately) and for the families and friends who will never recover from such carnage. And one need not look far to see the evidence of the grace of God.

(Btw, it was genius of Pres. Trump at a rally to include at a moments notice a  praying rabbi as well as a pastor. Loved their words.)

Thoughtlet for the day

What a useless engine and waste of good energy as to spend a lifetime in alleging: there is no God. After all, the very first words of Genesis, spoken to our hearts and minds, affirm what we already know, and what follows all the way through the Revelation, is proof positive that God’s word is good.

The internet is the fuel that drives the rusted heap of atheism,

While the little punk drivers are reckless, and make the claim God’s word is no good, like a missed field goal. Ha! of course it’s good. There are no defects in God. Nature attests to this fact, and His word is good as gold, better even. God CANNOT lie, it is not that He chooses NOT to, but that He CANNOT.

I get tired of hearing sloppy thinkers say there is nothing God cannot do. God CANNOT lie. It is not in His nature. The well established value of gold suggests this.

The nature of God is His intrinsic eternal perfection, but these thoughts are out of reach to the atheistic world view.

(btw, all other attempts to write books supplanting scripture, are but fool’s gold)

Now that’s significant

There is a plague in the land. There is a virus that attacks all good things, it has claws and fangs, and it is obvious on the WWW. Like a stealthily serpent it creeps, it moves having a singular purpose: to make life in general, and mankind in particular, insignificant. Ouch, and man oh man is this ever so true today.

When we hear so-called men of learning speak of unproven and unmeasurable trillions and trillions of miles, and guesswork of billions and billions of years, this is the rotten fruit of sinful men’s attempt to put man in the same category as sandpaper.

That’s right, in the worldview where God is not welcome in His own creation, man may as well be no more relevant than a single grain of sand used to make paper. Double ouch, for without design and purpose, life is merely insignificant. This is a factual, reliable, and a brutally truthful statement, for no man would then be qualified to speak with authority since life would only be guesswork.

Insignificance is the seed plot for guesswork.

This is the mind of the stunted intellect thank you very much, a life admitting there is no purpose, for apart from intelligence, eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die. Rob a bank, kill your neighbor’s cow, for you have just as much right to that cow as he does, after all, there is no purpose, meaning, there are no absolutes, no right or wrong. Steal it, kill it, make a leather jacket, who cares? Sin? Ha. what sin!

In the insane world view of liberalism and godlessness, his cow is your cow, other people’s money is your money, for we are but a cosmic grain of human insignificance. Right or wrong has no place in a world of utter insignificance. How dare you say the spider has no right to trap a fly, or that a black snake is cruel for snatching a bird.

Unless of course, if scripture is true, and man is not on the same plane as the ravaging beast. But scripture is true, men are not spiders and snakes, and man is in fact and in deed, significant, like no other creature on earth, so much so, that the animal kingdom fears and dreads man, just as the good book says, and long before Chuck Darwin wore his first diaper.

Doubt this? Call a common robin to eat from your hand, tell him you will not kill him, tell her to come closer. Good luck with that. Try to pet a whitetail deer in the wild, you know, one who wasn’t bribed to shed her nature living in a pen and eating gourmet food, and she will be long gone with a few leaps. This fear and dread thing of man is a killer to godlessness, for the deer fears not the turkey, as they stroll side by side, but watch them fear the coyote, yet watch them dread man. Oh yeah, quite a difference.

And no trillions and trillions of miles needed for the coyote to walk to earth…unless he was the recipient of that cosmic explosion which gave him teeth and the turkey only got second-rate feathers!

Sorry, but the four-footed creatures are significant, but man more so. Made in the image of God he is, designed to live under the umbrella of God’s goodness. Rain as a gift, the rainbow as a reminder. Men are clueless as to the nature and scope of the Creator, thinking ‘out there’ makes Him aloof or uncaring. Nothing could be further from the truth, for God so loved THIS world. THIS earth surrounded and enveloped by the high seas, this earth unlike any other. It is indeed significant, and God gave men a brain so unlike the frogs, who leap to wrong conclusions.

So take your pick:

In the beginning God…

or

In sig nif i cance.

Seems a no brainer to common sense, reality, facts, science, arithmetic, the alphabet, logic, nature, and of course scripture itself agrees, after all, truth explains it all. I have chosen. Without the sole Creator, your only conclusion is one of cosmic insignificance, one void of purpose, and with no one to thank for your existence and good life. NO ONE TO THANK. This is your life? Really?

But try then convincing yourself why you are more SIGNIFICANT than a cockroach who can neither tie his shoes, juggle grapefruits, or count to six. But I suggest you take into deliberation this ‘made in the image of God thing…….’

Then again, perhaps you simply enjoy cultivating your insignificance. Triple ouch.

A little detour

Surely you have seen the pics of the so-called  ‘immigrants’ parading toward the southern US border. But did you happen to notice that which the cameras conveniently avoid because it does not fit the template of liberalism gone sideways?

The model citizens, armed with 500 dollar tennis shoes, while laughing taking selfies on smart phones.

Stop right there. There are many Americans who can afford neither expensive Nikes, and who do not have iphones. Why doesn’t the msm see this?  Not so sure the truly homeless and destitute appreciate being cast in the same light as the well endowed.

Where pray tell are the addresses of these people so Sprint, Verizon, or Cricket can mail the monthly payment? Sounds like the word ‘oppression’ may have been overstated. How many hard working Americans would love to be so impoverished as to afford a thousand dollar phone with feet dressed to the nines?

Just sayin.

Ready, set, level, create

From the moment we wake up in the morning (Who cares for you while you sleep?) we are designed to create; how in God’s good name, can anybody on God’s good earth be blind to the fact that only an engineering marvel is responsible for the agreeing note of man, made in the image of God?

What SANE mind could ignore humanity’s need to create, in a way that far surpasses the finest masterpiece of a spider’s web, the awesome visuals of geese flying in Vees, the demure flight of an eagle soaring without effort, or the creation of a dam by beavers?

Whether it be by land, sea, or air, it is man, and man alone who stands taller than the Sequoia’s, and only a fool would deny that man is the pinnacle of God’s creation. True, some men have abused this fact, and lived as if they were gods who created the very eagle or tree, but this only proves the point. There will always be imposters or trespassers on another man’s property.

Every party has a guest who is completely obnoxious, toxic, alcoholic, or just plain irritating. Some people are not happy unless they are spreading their own brand of poison ivy. They just itch to flatter themselves with knowledge greater than God’s. Yeah, good luck with that, but better minds recognize arrogance and pseudo intellect a thousand miles away, for the permeating odor is a great warning.

Your preaching of that god ‘Science’ is so boring, not because science is boring, but because YOUR science has no context apart from truth. Like a plastic boat in a tsunami, your science is purely an imaginary wish to deny the Author of true science, tossed and turned neither knowing left or right, up or down.

Your science denies common sense, it refuses to see the triple truths of the never-changing carpenter’s level, the plumb line, or the mariner’s compass, all tools which guide to absolute truth, a direction and foundation conveniently missing from all conclusions reached by the godless. Not too smart.

Soooo, WHO created east and west, north and south? Who created the idea of absolute straight or level? Not you ye godless heathen and denier of creation; yet you create, but do not see the connection proven by your own embarrassment? Not too smart. Stupid even.

Creatures. Created. Creatures by the hands of the absolute Creator. How low has the mind of man sunk in depravity that this discussion is even necessary? To the believer I say take heart, be neither afraid or slow to point out the absurdity of the godless whenever you can; for a testimony must testify!

It takes no effort nor causes no sweat, and oh yeah, don’t be fearful of getting your feelings ‘hurt’ because of the insane responses you will get. ‘You are an idiot for believing scripture. You are brain-dead for thinking God created whales. You are retarded if you think Moses lived. Christ never walked either, He never died, and He certainly never rose again the third day. All idle tales.’

To this I say, blah, Blah, aaaaand BLAH. Are we then surprised when we read that such mouths must be stopped?

And to the unbelieving knuckleheads I say engage your brain, and try to reason like a 4-year-old child who has not been brainwashed to believe that the very house he lives in was ‘created’ by the inconvenient tornado. Don’t be an enemy of common sense. That kid need not go to Harvard nor wait till he hears from DeGrasse or Nye before he can decide WHO made the sun and moon overhead. His brain need not be twisted or damaged to learn: ‘There be no God.’ There you have it, men must UNLEARN what they innately know. Such is the mindset of that other half-breed liberalism, which gives birth to lawlessness, then more chaos.

We need colleges and universities to fund professors to lecture the young man and the rest of humanity, that life is irrelevant, purposeless, and that there are no absolutes, for admitting so, must mean One greater, and the pseudo-scholars who love to look at themselves in the mirror, cannot tolerate such confidence in the living God.

Nope. The fella can decide today. No PhD needed. But you will then berate this simple ‘faith of a child?’ Perhaps you then sir, ma’am, madam, have not yet considered what faith actually is. Faith is not hidden in the billions and trillions of years of unprovable guesswork cloaked as intellect, but is tangible, full of substance, testifying to evidence, having infallible conclusions reached by true science and a perfect record.  I never met my great-grandfather, but I have the word of my father that he was a good man. The science of his existence has not escaped me. Perfect records are handed down. Good men do not lie. And God’s words are far more reliable than liars. Thus, my faith has substance. I’m sorry you are going through life having no foundation, in ANYTHING.

Didja catch that last part? A perfect record. A perfect word. Such is scripture, the only perfect level.  No, no, not the knockoffs of JK Rowling and Harold the Potter, not the bastard children of Shamanism, Joe Smith, Baked Eddy, Frankenstein, Finklestein, Isn’tlam,  and the other kids of Bedlam who are simply hoodlums, no, but scripture, that only true account of God’s revelation to the creatures He made, which account we know is true, because nature, arithmetic, our conscience, all agree with the singular symphonic voice of the word of God.

Extra, extra, read all about it. It’s free, but it will cost your pride. Such is the genius of the good book.

If you do not think God’s word is reliable, verifiable, accurate as to history, correct as to geography, spot on as to Israel and prophecy, dead on as to the life and times of mankind, spiritually astute, with wisdom above and beyond the ages, then you sir, ma’am, are simply not level-headed.

Zip the lip buster

How long will it be, how many years will it take, how many decades, centuries, how many thousands, millions, billions, or trillions of years must pass…………before the strongest jackal in the pack……….surpasses or out lives his own evolution, and replaces the weakest man on earth, and begins to paint works finer than Picasso?

How long will it be before the jackal drops off two limbs, and the man grows a set of extra legs so man can run faster than a cheetah?

Careful how you answer, then again. one need not take more than 2 seconds flat to answer what is obvious. Oh how does common sense, facts, scripture, and of course true science answer quite easily.

While the wild dogs of the prairie have an excuse for not developing their social skills by learning to knit sweaters or sew a button, man has no excuse for clinging to such stupidity as a world without a Creator. After all, the good book says to our hearts what our conscience already knows.

Tis a very fine thing to have lips rendered mute by the thundering voice and power of scripture.
