Donkeys don’t ‘talk,’ they bray, but I do recall one donkey saying a few words to a man because he was stubborn as a mule. Heck, have you ever heard the asinine things some people say that would embarrass a talking parrot?
Yesirree, there be many folks who sound like honking geese when they talk, others like snorting horses when they laugh, and others gather round the campfire as they ravage believers like they were lamb on the spit, while they feast with ferocious fixens and frenzied evil laughter like hyenas; so what’s the big deal challenging the true account of Bal-aam?
I wasn’t there, neither were you. I heard it snowed 4 thousand years ago yet have no first hand knowledge, nor evidence that the clouds actually did send forth trillions of tons of snow. Yet, I have the reliability of history such as found in scripture, that yes it did snow, and yes, a donkey talked. So what. The scriptures have always spoken the truth.
There are other things more incredible to believe, like a person thinking ‘there is no God.’ Now THAT is fantastic, and makes an ass appear as a genius. Unbelievable I tell ya, how a person can wake up after being dead to the world….and proceed with another day, using minutes not his, time not his, a body not really his but borrowed, and go on and about complaining that the Creator of life has left him homeless in the mind, and helpless to see as it were, that the rain from heaven is a misted gift, and that if men choose to be blind, God sends more rain, and more, until men get the torrential message that God is the bestower of all gifts.
Tis sad that men receive daily packages known as the gift of life, and never thank the Giver. Also a sign of the times: ‘neither were they thankful, but were VAIN in their imaginations.’ Ah yes, reminds me of Solomon when speaking of the vanity of the ill-informed.
