(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.
