Ahh that lovely field

The thought occurred to me, that doing good things can nurture the bad,  and doing bad things can result in good. Like the human eye, perspective is a wonderful delight and wise tool of the intellect.  Still, I cannot resist the following thought for the day:

Please don’t feed the atheists.

Ouch. Biting? Yes. Sarcastic? More so. Good advice? Depends. What’s your perspective? Imagine a cornfield with a sign ‘Free corn,’ while a guy sits in a chair with a sign: ‘Hungry: I need corn,’ while being oblivious to his own good two feet and hands. No, this is not about the homeless. It is about the intellectually stubborn and lazy.

The word of God is that endless field, free for the taking, but some passersby must at all cost, stop the car and rummage through the fields, looking for a gnat on a leaf so they can consider the entire field poison, because they despise the land owner, and even go so far as to say He does not exist. Double ouch.

‘Aha, I found one!’ sez the cornstalker, but soon realizes the speck was a piece of dirt he then casually swatted from his own left eye. No, there are no defects in the fields of God, as He owns the cattle on a thousand hills.

In my travels, one of the most glorious sights is watching a thousand cattle graze on a hillside, with their little ones following in their train, white clouds above, the sapphire glass sky further above, all testifying to nature’s God and the excelling words of scripture, in the which there is no equal.

So while it is true that humans must eat, we need to be careful we don’t feed the bears so to speak, as they thank us for our kindness while they claw our flesh from our bones. Nature is lovely and brutal, and giving atheists our good ammunition so they can shoot us……..well, you get the point.

Me? I don’t care, like water off a duck’s back, as every bullet aimed has missed its mark, for God’s word has slain every lying and arrogant goliath that has, and ever will live. But not all are equipped and some will give up. Take heart!  Here’s a hint which will lessen the blows: it is not your battle, the darts are not aimed at you,  it is not your fault that people do not believe, and it is not your fault that people’s demand for ‘evidence’ be turned against you.

People hate the field. They despise the Creator. They serve the gods of DeGrasse, the neat packaged gods of Nye the science clown, they worship Darwin and his ‘ Xeroxed kinds,’ and loathe the Creator and His original kinds, while claiming some special dispensation of atheist intellect.

It is my humble observation that a man has no right to his next breath unless he give God thanks for that breath, and a brain so unlike the jackal, that brain which gives him the ability to both delight and create, just as the blueprint from heaven was given, yet men give God a finger or two. How do you spell depraved?

The fields of God are loaded with trespassers, they who are hidden among the leaves, stalking their prey, looking to make a feast out of their guile while accusing the landowner and the honest field workers that the food is rotten, as they complain of the mud on their boots.

But the thought never crosses their minds to ‘get your own field,’ because they can’t! God owns it all, and a man can neither manufacture an ant who quietly works 9-5, nor can he create an acorn in the lab. Men should be so embarrassed at their pride.

Still, whether there be imposters in the fields, there will always be the quiet ants which nobody sees, going about their business, serving and enjoying the fruits of He who owns all the dirt.

    Simply being told by another passerby that “Farmer John owns this field” so I’d better fork over the rent for squatting, or a portion of all I have everyday just to eat from what grows freely doesn’t amount to much unless you can demonstrate that Farmer John actually owns the field and actually demands such a price.
    Until then… it’s all of our field. And we are free do enjoy and live according the dictates of our own conscience as long as we don’t infringe on the rights and freedoms of the other squatters in the field.

      Really Mike? You have no problem ignoring and stealing from another mans property, especially when the sign reads ‘no trespassing?’

      Do I need to repeat that ALL of the property belongs to the Creator? But it does appear you have once again, missed the point (the gnat thing) of the post.

        I can post a sign on the nearest plot of land, hire representatives to say it belongs to me… or for the sake of your point someone else who may or may not be real, but posting a sign and having people repeat adnauseum does nothing to actually demonstrate that what the sign and the representatives are saying is actually true.

          Scripture is true mike. From Genesis 1.1. Deal with it.

          You have no right to your next breath without thanking God. Imagine His patience in light of such blatant disrespect.

          I suggest you reread scripture, unaided and unfiltered by the godless internet fools which has infected and affected your common sense.

          Need an example? Sure, just think of your new friends who have inflicted you with the hissing suggestion: Moses never lived……….blah blah, and blah.

          Result? Christ is a liar. You going with that mike? Good luck on that.

          Wake up? You mean go back to sleep. Sorry, I enjoy a fantasy free life. If there is a God of love, mercy and grace… he won’t need to threaten with eternal torture and pain in order to get people to believe he exists on bad or no evidence.
          I guess we’ll both have to wait till we see who Farmer John is, won’t we? Until then, live well, love strongly and do the best you can to “live at peace with all me, as much as it depends on you.” You remember that one, right CS? Have a great day.

          Hey mike. If it were not for scripture, you would never have heard of the word loves, mercy, or grace.

          Put that in your pipe and smoke it, but agreed, have a great day.

          Not true. Grace, mercy and love are taught and exhibited by all people groups and most all religions. They are not exclusive to Christians… who at present seem to be running a bit short on all categories if I can interpret your representation in this comment thread. Again, have a Great day.

          I can most certainly spit out the bones, and enjoy the truth of God, nature, scripture, arithmetic, the alphabet, which all speak the same harmonious truth.

          Truth is consistent with itself. Ever heard of the wheels within the wheels…………

          Speaking of “spitting out the bones”, I have a great quote for you from a book I’m reading on Celtic Christianity and the Old Way of the Druids.
          “Once gods, rituals and ‘spiritual authorities’ are stripped away, a love of life and truth is predominant in what remains: that is, in human nature” and
          “The answer to the fundamental question of why we are here is simply this: we are here for each other.”- Adam Ardrey, Finding Merlin
          Great quotes. Really good read. Pick up a copy today.

          mike-

          Your hobbies do not interest me. When you comment here, I must tell you, you are a careless reader.

          You ASSUMED my words of grace, mercy, and love were originated in Christianity, WHICH I NEVER SAID, I said SCRIPTURE is the garage where these truths were found.

          (as in, Noah found grace……..)

          It is precisely this reason that you equate Harrold the Potter. Merlin, and all your nonsensical equations with the monarch of books.

          God gave us a brain. Use it.

          Truly unworthy of seeing the light of day. I can only tolerate so much perversity, and I certainly do not have the patience of Job. Take this as an admonition mike, lest you think I am feeding your ignorance. The time for feeding the bears is over.

    Love this post ColorStorm! I am so with you on seeing God’s evidence in our natural world, the beauty of it sometimes just astonishes me. And for me too a simple thing like cattle grazing under an open sky just takes the breath away.

    For most anyway, except those who refuse to see truth and who take pleasure in denigrating those that do. It’s a very weird concept but I guess in a way it brings value to a one dimensional life devoid of God.

    You know there is a huge difference between one who has not ever responded to the light and the one who was a supposed partaker and now rejector. I keep waiting for an atheist to make sense. Yes Mike you are an atheist simply a craven coward of one who is so unsure of his atheism that he can’t even own it. But if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck….its a duck. Have a nice day!

  5. Cool post, Colorstorm. When the kids were small we had a little black bear sneak up behind us and start eating our marshmallows. So we all got up quietly and fled to the car…except my oldest who ran into her tent because that’s where all the chocolate was and the bear was not getting that. Ai yi yi! I still have grey hairs named after that kid.

    All these happy atheists, full of completely normal and innate human mercy and love, sure do spend an awful lot of time hating on God and trying to harass Christians. You would think all that purity of heart and vastly superior wisdom would lead them to find more useful pursuits, but I guess not.
