Eh, so we disagree

Put 10 women and ten men in a room and ask them to explain the greatest movie of all times. Some will cite Citizen Kane with good reason, others may call upon Cinderella for good reason, still others John Wayne in True Grit, or Max Von Sydow in The Seventh Seal and have equal cause, etc, on and on go the opinions based on preference or genre.

There would be great dispute and rightly so. How could things not being impervious be the same to one and all? They will not. They cannot.

Listen to any dialog between good people regarding politics and you will have opposite views looking at the same information. Bias and the brain are strange things, some different, maybe not better, but perspective plays a huge role.

Pick a sport. Some love soccer, some despise baseball, looking at the same sport, go figure. However, there are things in life that are without controversary, things that do not rely on mans weak opinions, things that are resolute and sure, things that teach greater things: if we pay attention.

Snow is cold. It is always cold. We know this because we know what is warm. Opinions are irrelevant when we say ‘time flies,’ or as I like to say, Tempis Fugit. The stars above, those glorious lights not being rocks, display their daily majesty whether or not we see them, or whatever we think of them. They are also immune to time, and do not care that we are aging.

Once more to borrow a good word, they are impervious to what wreck we have made as caretakers of terra firma. Yet, there is something that does not change, there is Someone that does not change, and that ‘thing’ is scripture, that written revelation of the mind of God, that we be not as lost mariners or seamen on the ocean of life.

And that Someone is Almighty God. We know Him, some not intimately as a Father, but we all know Him as God. He is THAT light which lighteth every man that comes into the world. The DNA of heaven is imprinted deep within our being; it’s very innateness cannot be denied.

This is why in EVERY culture, every age, every empire of the life and times of men, there is both affirmation and denial of the One who breathed the breath of life into man. We inhale His goodness, and exhale our lack of virtue. It is the very WORST of vices to think that evolution could rid the human heart, mind, and soul, of the knowledge of God.

I’m here to tell you that no-can-do, while you lift those legs and say you can-can. The knowledge of God is the greatest of the sciences, so saith the astute mind of a man dearly departed. And He was correct. We believers do disservice to ourselves by thinking that scripture in general, and Genesis in particular, somehow lacks, as if God forgot about 2020.

He is the same, yesterday, today, and forever, and that insidious mark of the beast, coming through a chip and to a town near you, is proof positive that He is well aware of our so-called high-tech which we have managed to use to destroy ourselves. Why? Because a nation that forgets God………..a generation which has lost its way….

So while we disagree about many things simply by being human, we must agree that the epic of the ages is still God’s word, which is forever settled in Heaven, (thank you King David) and that His promises are still sure and steadfast, He still does not sleep or take vacations, He still keeps the apple of His eye, He still collects tears in a bottle, the Lord still is seated at God’s right hand, He still displays the rainbow as a covenantal promise, and He still shares our deepest sorrows, after all, He knew what was in Adam, and He is acquainted with grief, and He has long put in place EVERY atheistic excuse known to man.

In the beginning God. As I said, settled.  Thank God.

 

(as an aside, remember they who boast of greatness are always found out. Having brains beat till they turn to mush prove the carelessness of our words)

  1. God is good to create such diversity, isn’t He? We all see things a little bit differently, so as a group all our eyes can come together and work together, to really see. The Bible says there are many parts in the Body, we can’t all be arms or ankles, nor should we even try. Then there is the stuff that is just like c’mon, snow is always cold. Men are always men, women are always women. We have been given great freedom, the power to write our own stories, but within reason, for goodness sakes.

    Amen to this ColorStorm. It’s funny as I was pondering recently about this subject of God’s consistency and his character being the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. I got to thinking that it’s the same thing for humans. Our ugliness will always be with us, it’s not something we “progress” away from. Technology and creature comforts may improve but we still suffer from the same sinfulness as when Jesus walked the earth.

    It is a funny thing. God does not change, but we change our view of Him. Grow older. Grow wiser. And we will see things about God we have not seen before. Yet those things were there to be seen, and someone has probably see them before.

    Martin Luther did not discover justification by faith. Thank God he rediscovered justification by faith.

    Let us pray we do not lose sight of our Lord.

      ‘Did not discover.’ Well done. Great observation CTom. Love that.

      Re-discovered. It wasn’t Luther’s doctrine. It was Paul’s, but it wasn’t Paul’s.

      That doctrine was the Lord’s. It was His dealing, His revelation, and we are but benefactors.

    Greatest movie of all time?
    Without a doubt, the recent/latest animated “Peter Rabbit”. (Love it~!)

    Sport?
    Anything that I don’t have to attend, or root for, or even listen to. My idea (unpopular with many) is give ’em all a ball and they wouldn’t have to fight over that one.

    Politics?
    I never vote—it only encourages them. Brrrrr.

    God?
    There you have me. Too many to choose from, too many devouts of too many different breeds of too many different franchises of too many different brands … so I say only: to each his own (as in ‘Live, and let live’.

    I wish …
