Exposing lies

Are you fearful of calling a lie a lie, or do we soft pedal the truth at the expense of ‘charity’ or ‘tolerance?’ Do you coddle at all… they who obviously and viciously lie to promote THEIR agenda, hiding behind the false narrative of ‘love thy neighbor?’ Do I?

I would like to think not, but perhaps we can agree here and now, so let’s point out a few of Dick Dastardly’s mission statement’s and send them to the pit of hell. No apologies for saying a yes is yes, and that no is no.  After all, love without truth is a mere suggestion. Truth and love are the pillars of righteousness. And lying has a bad father.

God did not create the heavens and the earth.

A lie.

Moses never lived.

You sir, ma’am, are a liar.

King David did not have a wise son named Solomon.

Again, I am being polite here, but you are a liar.

Daniel never lived, and he never interpreted dreams. He never spent a night in the lion’s den.

You are a double-minded liar, and I apologize not for saying so.

King Herod and  Pontius Pilate were purely fictitious and only included in scripture to drive a false narrative.

You, are a liar.

The Lord Jesus Christ did not die the death of death’s on Calvary’s central tree, according to the scriptures.

This is a rather big lie, and to hold to it, you are a liar.

Saul of Tarsus never lived, was not taught by Reb Gamaliel, did not become the apostle Paul, and was not the greatest spiritual intellect this world has ever seen. His epistles are fraudulent.

You friend, are a major liar.

God’s word, also know as the sacred scriptures, cannot be trusted factually, historically, spiritually, archaeologically, and currently.

You do actually lie, and tell not the truth.

God’s word is only relevant to the narrow or weak-minded, and is clearly a mental crutch because the contents are clearly full of lies.

This is hilarious, but if you possibly think this is true, then you lie, and do not the truth.

God did not create the eagle to fly, the whale to swim, the cattle to plow the field, neither did He create man above all.

You are a white-washed liar, and somebody needs to point this out to you.

The scriptures which contain the revelation of the grace of God, can be found in any religion or school of independent thought.

Uh, nnno, the holy scriptures alone point out the sole distinction of the grace of God, courtesy of Christ Himself, who was full of grace and truth. To think otherwise, presents you as clearly misguided, and if so, excusable, but if intentional, then a clear liar.

Now then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth? 

Truth comes with a price, else it would not be valuable. Buy some today; trade in your pride. And let the redeemed of the Lord say so. But be careful to dismiss this because it does not sound loving. I’m guessing only to a liar would it not sound loving, and only to the faint of heart or scripture despisers will this appear callous.

It is neither cold nor unlovely, but certainly pure in content, for one cannot say ‘there is no God,’ and live in the building of integrity and walk in the hallways of truth. Yes means yes, and no means no.  In all the above examples, there is a common thread of evil consistency, which raspy voice has been sold and traded by they who have enjoyed the whispering hiss of the age-old enemy of all truth who slyly says: ‘Did God really say?

Diabolical says it all. Pure evil to lie against God and scripture. Pure deceit to give heed to the voice of father of lies, who has spawned many children, while at the same time masquerading as truth seekers.

Truth and lies cannot dwell in safety. Oh and let me add: no Exodus? You then are a liar, for let God be true. His word is always good, liars, eh, that’s another story.

The two faces of evil

–With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright;  With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.–  So sez the good book, and so I agree. After all, it’s kind of obvious.

And from Titus:

-Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.-  Ouch. ……’is nothing pure.’

Seems rather clear and blistering true, both from experience and observation, especially on the intertoobs. Men hang themselves with their own rebellious ways, and blame God for their own defects.  Not too smart. People can be outright stupid.

It’s one thing to deny the Creator the courtesy of existing, even more-so when He has given ten million times ten million proofs times ten billion proofs such as found in rain, sand, songbirds, men, women, male and female of all kinds, bats, ants, worms, trees, sunsets, heat, cold, love, hate, birth, death; but it quit an affront when the same God holds up a mirror to our faces, and we tell Him, ‘nope, that’s not me.’  As I said, stupid.

Talk about mental duncery. Talk about intellectual deception perfected to the nines. Talk about not being honest when we hide our faces from our own conscience. Stupid.

To cite God as evil is the crème de le crème as proof of just how low humanity has sunk. People btiched about the evil God who first misted His creation from the ground up, as any good landscaper would attend to new vegetation, then they put their foots in their mouths again, when they chastise the Creator of water for sending an over abundance of water, causing the earth to flood.

Yep, they cited Him as evil, however, they conveniently forget that for 120 years, God was patient, extremely gracious, pleading with the miscreants who cited God as evil, ignoring His merciful pleas, and asking for proof that there is one God. Ha! As if the Creator of the sparrow has a competitor who created the eagle.

Stupid I tell ya, plain stupidity to deny what is rightfully God’s. And the result of such blatant numbskullery? To see God as evil, and to not see that the look in the mirror that reveals just where exactly the ‘bad intent’ lies.

‘With the upright man, thou wilt show thyself as upright, and with the froward thou wilt show thyself as froward.’  God’s word is always correct. It is always ten thousand years ahead of any objection.

So dear believer friend, has this not been your experience in dealing with the truth of scripture? So unbelieving friend, is this indictment not true of you, that you see everything through the filter of godlessness, while you avoid the truth of your own heart?

Without a plumbline of truth, without a level which proves off center, without a compass to prove direction, the atheist/unbeliever/infidel has to admit that he has absolutely no standard whereby he may judge what is pure, and what is froward.

God’s word contains all these tools, because God is the only toolmaker. They are eternally consistent with Himself, but the look in the mirror tells us what we already know. So then neighbor, if you had to choose a face of God, who gets your vote? And this selection of yours reveals more of you than you could imagine.

But try to consider if this post is true. Here’s a clue though: it is true.  Truth is always consistent with itself.

Ah yes, faith, what a defect.

I am so a sucker for stuff like this. Just watch me unwrap and melt away. More so when things like this are true. Surely you have heard of the intellectual crippling effect of faith, or as some like to say: ‘Faith for dummies.’ Yeah ok, one may as well btich about the heat of the sun they can’t see either.

The wisest of all spoke about the faith of a child, and be careful how you treat these little ones, because they have proven to be innocent, and have not yet met the ‘faith stealers,’ they who would come along and deprive them of what is rightfully theirs. They have not as yet fallen prostrate to the collegiate level high-jacking of all things pure and decent.

They have not as yet believed ‘there is no God.’ See, you need to be untaught that by people with crooked hearts and twisted ideals.  And I’ll just take the silence of the usual patrons who mock such things as a temporary admission that faith is in fact very real, alive, and well even. Enjoy.

(ps- Don’t underestimate the value and power of guilelessness. Sure, this may be a simple example, but please do not confuse the bigger picture with ‘magic.’ No sleight of hand here, and I dare one person on earth to find fault with this vid. If you try, I will crush your ignorance in under 2 seconds flat, politely as possible but without apology.)

The ‘kinds’

I have been saying this for years. Take careful note of the answers, or lack thereof, and the cut and paste repeated answers by so-called smart people who show how utterly lacking, empty, and shallow, is the thought process of they who cling to Darwinesque thinking.

And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

I love the matter of fact persistence, patience,  and overall superiority of the host in not allowing the people to escape his questions with non-answers or answers that expose complete fallacy.  Truly beautiful watching science pulverize ‘false science.’

To my WP brethren, just substitute any unbeliever, skeptic, decon, or atheist’s name here, pick a face, be it guys with cement ball caps, fake professors, others who feign underzanding, just plug and play, and enjoy. To all others, seriously pay attention. After all, Genesis and God’s ‘kinds’ are on display.  Watch the students and professors run for the hills in their own non beliefs.

This is pure gold. Perfect really. A cross-section of academia throughout the world. ‘Make me a rose.’

(ps- and to my believer friends; don’t go telling me scripture does not have the drop on science. Of course it does.)

Declare!

As long as the motives are pure, hard questions are good. When a child asks ‘why’ mama robin feeds her little one worms, this is a legitimate query. When the same child asks ‘why’ the sun and moon move overhead and appear identical in size, these are most certainly  excellent questions, (which answers by the way embarrass false science and godlessness)

So the adult infidel ‘asks’ questions of the Creator, NOT out of pure motives to truly understand, but to reveal the innate disdain for the Creator, period. IF God created man and woman for instance, WHY did God allow Cain to kill his brother, or WHY did God create at all, if He knew the family tree would grow some bad apples?

Of course the narrative is designed to allow self-made-smart people and all fools to be king of the playground, and to ASK questions which supposedly display their superior position of artificial intelligence, that is, a world without a Creator. Yes, artificial is the correct word for all things atheistic when dealing with God.

I stand by this with all the proof of heaven and earth.

Artificial pretends to be something it is not. A gold painted gutter is hardly the real McCoy. A man would starve to death if he tried to survive eating apples from a Monet painting. Godlessness is 100% artificial intelligence which offers zero calories. It is the great pretender. It operates on fumes and borrowed power. Godlessness asks a million poisoned questions, and ignores rock solid answers already given.  Have any examples? Sure, tkx for asking.

But do allow me to say right out of the gate: God’s questions are the finest, so I shall simply borrow from He who holds the keys to every letter, number, design, trademark, and copyrights. God owns all Intelligence, so it would make sense if His questions put us in our rightful place.

Aside from God’s first recorded question to man: ‘Adam, where are you?’ God’s power and wisdom is on display for the sole purpose of Him allowing us to remember who He is, and who we are. The Creator, and the created. His questions, and our answers, are age old, and reveal the identical concerns that all humans have, including doubts, fear, wonder, wander, life, death, nature, astronomy, all science, true religion, false religion, and everything under the sun.

But first I suggest you immediately read Job 38 from the excellent language of the KJV for the most powerful effect.  So God asks:

‘Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?’ He then adds:  ‘Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.’

Uh oh. Can you see the proverbial shaking in the boots? Men do not have this posture regarding God today. We think our questions to God trap Him, but we miss the DEMANDING by God which instantly shuts our mouths. But no, we do not pay attention, neither do we care. God then thunders this:

‘Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?’

Forget your ungodly and borrowed science guesswork, and DECLARE, IF thou hast understanding…… Stop right there buster, and consider the ramifications of this statement by the Creator.  You DO NOT have understanding. You are clueless as to how the Creator made the measurements down to the inch, and made the foundations on which the earth is hung.

All quality buildings have foundations, and oh, that corner stone thing. Where were you, you whippersnapper when creation took its orders?  Where were you and your science friends when these jeweled stars took their place in the setting of God’s creation?

Where were you when the Seas were issued their stopping places at the shores, when they did not overflow their banks? Hmmmm? Answer if you can? The fact is, you can’t.

But if you continue through Job, you will see each question by the Creator adds a death-blow to man’s pride. There is no literature on earth, and never will be which presents God’s overall majesty and power as we find here in Job. ‘Have you entered into the treasures of the snow?’  I DEMAND OF YOU, ANSWER IF YOU CAN.  And this:

Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,   That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

God anticipates the complete arrogance of man, and asks questions to all for all times, and if man would only be humbled at His glory.  Do you think you have answers because you have experience as a human? Do you think your old age and your reading of the dry works of infidels help you ‘understand?’

Have you perceived the breadth of the earth? No, you have not. You do not know. Your imagination stops at the ice walls. Do you know the treasure houses of snow and hail? Of course you don’t, as you think this is fictional poetry.

Are you beginning to see the pattern of these questions, asked to the heart and conscience of men? It’s no wonder God’s word says men are without excuse, and that nature has revealed His handiwork.  It’s no wonder that men are proven liars.

God asks further and men should faint in such goodness:

‘Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go and say unto thee, Here we are?’

Oh boy, the waters above all ordered aright, as well as the directives followed by the lightning. This portion of Job alone demolishes godlessness, infidelity, and atheism of course quicker than lightning, and resounded by its thunder in agreement.  Job was a good man, his friends, eh, debatable, but these are questions for you and I, young and old.

And of course, more of God’s intrinsic glory revealed in 39. The ostrich. He deprived her of wisdom, yet gave her great wings, yet so unable to match this:

Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.

There is no knowledge greater than God’s, there is no power greater than His, and there is no glory outside of Him. Truly the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding.  And His questions are heavier than sand.

Apart from the twin towers of wisdom and understanding, all else is but artificial. (I really hope the eyes that have taken the time to read this, have considered how small man is, and how great God is.)

To the believer, this clear and certain peal is for thee. To the unbeliever, you hear the same thing. What will you now do? To ignore the clear sound, is to act like an unreasoning animal. We are better than that.  To hear God’s questions and not be arrested and humbled, we just may have become immune to life, and just may have considered all things miraculous as only ordinary. Tis a shame.

The bell tolls for thee

We interrupt this program to bring you a special announcement. Well you may disagree as to the special part, but at least there are no annoying sales pitches. While finishing up my next release here on WP, the thought occurred to me that the content is really good, and I mentioned it to someone else, but it is not for the reasons one would think.

That said, please follow the one instruction I request, and then you will agree, that is, if honesty rules the day, and it should. Just think of that bell as if it was just for you.  Prepare ye for what is to come.   Only 1200 words.    😉

Now back to our regular broadcasting.

Has the dust settled?

Surely you have heard of rose-anne fame, and her on again off again romance and fame as a shock jock entertainer.  What really got my goat was not her mouth (which I’m pretty sure is only her opinion and so what) but ABC coming to the plate immediately and saying something about her not sharing ABC’s values….

Did anybody catch that? Like hello, anybody home in that boardroom brain? From the place that brings you the daily rants of Joy Blowhard, oops, Behar,  ABC is speaking about values?  Give me a break.

Christians are mentally unstable says the bayster, and all her kin say ‘amen.’ Values? Since when? One of the vilest mouths on television (Joy the joyless atheist) speaks her rip-roaring and un-edited lava like stream of liquid feces on a regular basis,, and ABC is all of a sudden concerned with values? Really?

From the network which promotes George Steppinoverous, and the Clinton’s as saviours of the world…………..they speak of values? If they truly had ‘values,’ they could have easily let old Rosy tighten her own noose and actually stand up for ‘opinions’ or ‘freedom of speech,’ but noooooo, her speech does not fit the template, and cannot be tolerated.

So what if she spoke of the planet of the apes. Does not atheism boast of kinship with the furry friends? Are there not nice looking apes? Who cares what bonehead comment she makes? Will not the public rule the day in the marketplace of ideas and commerce? Where are all the liberal atheists defending the apes?  Which is it, apes or humans which are being insulted? and why?

The whole thing is hilarious. Personally, I have no use for rose-anne, or sitcoms for that matter. Never saw the Big Bang theory, never saw 4 and a half men, (can’t stand Sheen) on and on and on, but apparently that stuff is popular.  But a person’s career is terminated immediately because someone does not like an opinion?  If this was a valid concern, then every TV show must end, now, because 50% will always be insulted.  And btw, when did actors ever become wise people?

In the words of John Stossel, give me a break.

Love me some scripture

The language of scripture has no equal.

When we read: ‘And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated, ‘  there is no fantastic description nor an exaggeration of unnecessary words.  His age mentioned, and his physical condition. Period. There was no New York Times obituary. God does not flatter.  ‘And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.’ Once more, a simple epitaph worthy of God.

Again: ‘Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea, and Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias the tetrarch of Abilene,
Annas and Caiaphas being the high priests, the word of God came unto John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness.’

Take note of the political underpinnings, the positions, and the provable names, only mentioned to set the context in history, Israeli temple life, and geographical accuracies. The Baptist had a father, and John’s arrival was mentioned to give credibility to his voice pointing of one to come.  Equally reliable, testable, and provable.

Again: ‘And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem. Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly.’

Take note. 33 years in Jerusalem; not one reason on earth to doubt or disbelieve this historical record.  So when the New Testament opens with this explosion:

‘The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham,’ once more, there is absolutely no reason on earth or hell to disbelieve the factual, actual, historical, provable, and verifiable account of the gospel writer, unless of course, you are of the devious sort that would malign or impugn very good people, and assign to them motives which are only your own, that being of course, nefarious motives.

Here we see the connection between the throne of David, the promises of God through Abraham, and the absolute life and times of the Lord Jesus Christ, all part and parcel of the perfect warp and woof of the holy scriptures; take note it is the holy scriptures, not a word I used to fill in a blank.

Back to Pontius Pilate. Remember when he washed his hands of the matter? Yep, same man as mentioned in Luke. It happened. Christ stood before him like a lamb led to the slaughter. Isaiah wrote of such a day. Pilate had no interest in the 53rd chapter. Yet, the scriptures must be fulfilled. They were. They are. Of course.

It’s all true, the accounts of scripture that is. Say you do not believe it, say you despise it, but please do not embarrass yourself by saying the scriptural narrative cannot be trusted. It is not a modern prophetical weather forecast by the way which are usually wrong. God’s word is not subject to the lies and whims of soothsayers, and is never wrong. Are ya listening? Never wrong.

The throne of David. It is obvious the Lord was denied this rightful place, but there is this slight inconvenience known as time, which is really fleeting, and where as sure as the minutes disappear fast as lightning, He will take His seat according to the scriptures. And the political leaders of the world, and the rumors of wars, will all take a back seat, however good or bad they are.

And oh, then there is this, the most obvious of scientific proof courtesy of the Creator: ‘Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field;’ naturally any weekend gardener agrees with this eternal problem, that while we work the ground, those pesky weeds are a gentle reminder of the Creator’s word. (One would think by now that godless evilution would have figured out a way to make God a liar.

And the Creator questions man: ‘Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?’ Words meant to humble the created, if they would but pay attention.

From Genesis, through Exodus and the giving of the law to one nation, and the history of humans in relation to that one nation, through good and bad kings, through faithfulness by God’s people in strange lands, through death and confirmed promises to offspring, to the announcement of judgment, through stupid giants fallen by little stones, to the assault of prophets who merely told the truth, to the writers of the gospels who were eyewitnesses to God’s revelation, to the unmatched truth of the epistles, which proof could never have been devised by mortals, we see the incontrovertible consistency of God’s word.

Then there is always the grace of God, a truth impossible to be found in any of the world’s knock off religions. It’s no wonder that good people simply say ‘Amen.’  Even more so, when the word is not according to godless scientists, not according to Maher, Nye, or Tyson, but according to the scriptures.  Ah yes, the only real according that matters.

Religion poisons everything

After many years of careful study, and because of blogsville, it is safe to conclude that the quote above could only be uttered by a mind full of bias, mental blindness, and spiritual myopia, not to mention selfishness and the inability to judge a matter squarely and fairly. What reasonable person would say this?

In addition, it is my critical opinion that the more famous the atheist, the more vapid is the tongue which suggests such devious and slippery thoughts. Darwin, Maher, Sagan, Nye, and the ‘religion poisons everything‘ copyright by a member of the so-called intellectual club, Chris Hitchens, is proof enough.

Of course those of you with the ability to count to 3 know this is a statement from the mouth of fools: ‘Religion poisons everything.‘ Of course it is, as common sense prevails.  Let’s dissect this a bit shall we, and then decide if it is true, or simply wishful thinking by the atheistic worldview.

I had observed at another place where this quote is enjoyed by the godless that ‘pure religion,’ as described in scripture, is not only good, but is very good. ‘To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,’ is cited as ‘pure religion,’ in that wonderful book of James,  and I dare any fool to find fault with this statement.  Scripture, when read properly, has a tendency to correct such wayward thinking.  But people are lazy thinkers, poor readers, and sloppy writers, hence such a detestable statement as ‘religion poisons everything.’

Picture an older man locked in a nursing home, having nobody of blood to visit him, no kin, no family in his life, or if he does, they are not around or just plain do not care. Why? Because he is old, has ‘nothing’ to offer, as his days are spent, and all he has is a wheelchair to comfort him.

Along comes a young man or woman, or a middle-aged man or woman, totally unknown to him, and sits to ‘visit.’ Wanting nothing, they sit with the elder fella. A little bit of ‘pure religion’ here, inspired by the good book, because as you know, time is oh so fleeting, and before long, you and I will meet our end of days also.

Some will say: you don’t need ‘religion’ to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, as many people do just that. Fine, go for it, but please note, you are being religious. The essence of humanity is courtesy of He who created the heart, unless of course, you agree with the lunkheads who think the human heart designed itself from a rock which had no brain to even consider what a heart was, but I degrasse, I’m sorry, I mean digress.

PURE religion is non condemning, is full of mercy and good fruits, is kind, seeks no recognition nor reward, motivates and inspires to be lawful as opposed to a miscreant, understands truth as opposed to guesswork, and recognizes that the Creator made one moon for our viewing pleasure, and one sun to supply heat, as opposed to a hundred suns or moons all competing for our attention.  Right, pure mental poison that the Creator chose to grace us with only one of each.

In the good book a man is told to love his wife, but religion poisons everything.

A child is told to obey his parents, religion poisons everything.

A man is told to pay his taxes, but religion poisons everything.

A woman is told to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, but religion poisons everything.

A man is told to forgive his enemies, but religion poisons everything.

Are you noticing the inability to connect the dots of reality as far as religion is concerned? Do you note that it is only a delusion of fools which suggests that religion poisons everything?

But the atheist will praise two men getting ‘married,’ they will praise a rebellious child, because little junior should have no boundaries; they will praise a man going into a girl’s bathroom, because they are superior minded and liberal; they will praise girls being admitted into the ‘Boy Scouts’ because after all, to delineate the sexes is soooo Wilma and Fred; they will praise a tax cheat, as long as he is not a believer, and they will blame a mass murderer on the effects of ‘religion’ because an idiot read the bible in Sunday School once.

Yeah, religion poisons everything all right, and I bet you believe that the godless scientists have more knowledge and wisdom than the Creator Himself. Yeah, and ‘religion poisons’ the life and times of the Amish, who go about their business quietly, working harder than mules, because their bibles tell them to live peaceable lives.  Sure, some real poison coming out of those carpenter shops, sawmills, leather shops, and fruit stands. I forgot, religion poisons everything.

A man and woman home school their children because they are better equipped to teach, and spend valuable time actually teaching reading, writing, and arithmetic, as opposed to sitting in a classroom lectured by social engineering people regarding the ‘value’ of same-sex bathrooms for 7 year olds. But right, ‘religion poisons everything.’

An armored truck overturned on the freeway, and a hundred thousand dollars were grabbed by passersby because they thought it was ‘free money,’ yet a believer turned in a bag of two hundred thousand dollars because the good book says: ‘thou shalt not steal,’ but I forgot, ‘religion poisons everything.’  (whether or not an atheist returned the money is irrelevant; this example shows the mettle of a mans decisions based on scripture. Period.)

If you have any sense of mental balance, and one drop of fairness, you must conclude that the quote ‘religion poisons everything’ statement is pure delusion, and cannot stand three seconds of serious scrutiny. I could write much more on this, but reasonable people already agree, and the atheist will not care, as blindness is the preferred meat of choice on the menu.

(If you care to venture into that place where this post sprang from, do offer a word of daylight to a much-needed cadre of folks who do not know the difference between Genesis and Revolution, as they pretend to be oh so learned, and oh so elitist)

The gifts of men

You have been to a museum, perhaps you have admired a Monet, and you immediately thought: ‘What a brilliant artist, what an amazing talent, what surprising and rare gift coming from the hands of man,’ and you would be correct.

So a man or woman takes a canvas, and expresses that which can not be put into words, they create, they are satisfied, and they are glad others too appreciate their talent, and life goes on. So who gets credit for the above shown masterpiece in the sky? Answer if you can.

Men create daily; bridges are first designed, drawn, blueprinted, steel fashioned, ground surveyed, artisans employed, and presto, look at the Dubai tower. A Jewel of the Nile as it were.

But it would be the height of ignorance and rightfully stupid to say that Monet’s work was the result of a happy accident, that it was not planned, executed, and painted by someone with obvious gift.

So why then dear friend, do we not extend the same courtesy to He who supplies all men with gifts, and why do we withhold absolute reverence for He who is the greatest painter of all? Who on earth can paint a sunset like the Creator of color? What Picasso would dare compare himself with One greater?

We look and enjoy the rare glamorous sunsets that dazzle and arrest our attention, but we stop short of the infinite considerations due to He who made the palette in the first place. Man can only borrow the existing inspirations, for no man can reproduce the cobalt, the cerulean, the periwinkle, the midnight blues, the siennas, the oranges, the remarkable colors of nature, as given by the ultimate gift giver, God Himself.

What fool would stare at a blank white canvas for hours and praise the artist who did nothing? Yet, is this not what we do when we steal the glory of the Docent and put it, and him, in the trash bin? Life is no blank canvas, and the One who gives gifts to men, is Himself, the greatest painter of all. And THAT took no effort and caused no sweat.

Ask Michelangelo if there was a God, and he just may have said something like: ‘What are you stoopid? Are you brain dead? Where did these hands and fingers come from? Do you think I am smart enough to dream of this inspiration apart from he who created the brain? I am borrowing the colors of nature, yet you are acting as the thief who steals what belongs to God? Life is God’s, I am simply happy to pass along that which He has given.’

And oh, if that is not enough, we always have the word of God; that little phrase ‘according to the scriptures,’ kinda settles everything. Love that, not according to weather forecasters who are 90% wrong, not according to network broadcasters who are 90% wrong, not according to Dawkins, Hawkins, Sagan, DeGrasse who are 98% wrong, but according to the scriptures, which are 100% correct.

Thank God for His wonderful gifts to men.

Complete fairness

This is not meant to disparage good people wherever they may be found, and whatever vocation they are in, it is simply that God’s word is written to smite the elite. Since the wisdom of God is from above, it is natural then that the rain would agree that all blessing springs from him, and thankfully nature confirms His word and ways.

I no more need a godless scientist to explain creation, than I need a hundred popes to unfold the gems of scripture.

The above quote is I believe, expressed in the context of total fairness. It will be scorned by both academia and fields of religion, but it is, and should be, true to people who cherish the truth above and beyond circles of influence.

Common sense and discernment are more valuable than all the tea in China,  and twice as wonderful as a thousand University degrees. God’s word is the only ex cathedra that really matters.

Not particularly….now

There are priceless gems in scripture which reveal other jewels, and if we care to pay attention, we can see God’s timeless wisdom and His admonition to be like the industrious ant, toiling without special notice, and laboring to uncover the crumbs which are first part of the loaf, then prove to be part of the entire feast.

And part of this beauty, is reading a text which says so little, but points us to so much more…if we care to pay attention. So without further delay, consider this nugget from the ninth of Hebrews:

And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

Now if we are reading this, and have not a clue as to the covenants of glory, and the tabernacle, then the temple, then we of course would not appreciate as much that subtle wink: ‘of which we cannot now speak particularly.’ What honesty! What a divine arrow pointing to Genesis and beyond! What genius by the inspired writer to lead us to the entire warp and woof of scripture.

Of course he could not NOW speak particularly, as that would be a detour well beyond the scope of the moment, but ah, a clue was left us, to go onward and upward, to see over there, Nathanael sitting under the fig tree as it were, pondering perhaps the cherubim guarding the tree so long ago.

So we are reading Genesis, and we come upon the cherubim for the first time, and any honest heart will not have a clue as to what they are, UNTIL comes such time, that a bit more information is given us.

Here a little is revealed, there a little is shown more, comparing scripture with scripture is ever the safeguard, lest we arrive at private interpretations which are usually not good. But the mercy-seat! That place of awful (as in awesome, full of awe) Presence, that place where the bells of pomegranates on the robes of the priest should not be heard. God’s glory and mercy are to be taken humbly and seriously.

What fool would not enjoy the mercy of God? We currently see the fiery lava flows in Hawaii, and should beg God to spare us, but we do not, and act as if this freak of nature is common as the underappreciated rain from heaven. (but I digress)

So at the very least, the cherubim in Genesis were objects of mercy, and their appearance in scripture at every turn remind us of the mercy of God. God is actually for us, but we usually interpret Him through broken spectacles, and never give Him the benefit of the doubt for actually knowing what He is doing.  He sends the rain, but we call THAT spontaneous serendipity as if it is not miraculous.

We see the cherubs in Ezekiel with wings covering their faces; of course! as the mercy of God is bottomless. We see them in the Revelation, once more reminding us that mercy rejoices against judgment.  We see them in action by way of the Lord Christ putting an envelope of mercy around the woman whose accusers wanted nothing of the mercy of God. The glory of God was revealed.

Mercy triumphs against judgment, and the judgment of religious men scorned her and Him. Instead of appreciating the cherubim of glory, they actually despised the glory of God, who delights in covering the trespasses of the forgotten and scorned. They dropped their stones, one by one, and slinked away, instead of asking for this grace themselves.

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; it is the honour of kings to search it out, says the good book, so do we not honour God by seeking out the truth of the cherubim? I think so. It is also a good thing to be saturated with good doctrine, and this does not come easy, but by a careful, patient, and honest approach to all things biblical.

And it is precisely this ‘good’ doctrine which is found in the hearts and blogs of so many here at WP. Easy to be intreated, soft on the eyes, easy on the ears, no screeching crows at 5am, long before the first songbird, no, the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable.  You know it when you see it, and you smile when you hear it.

This cherubim thing, this demure opening of God’s marvelous ways that reveal His unbounded wisdom. God is good like that. So the wings cover and uncover. They uncover God’s mercy and they invite us to hear this good word, this word which reminds us of a ‘covering,’ this mercy-seat, this place of unvarnished truth which allows us to see what lies beneath the bone and marrow, this place of brutal honesty which recognizes who we are, and who God is.

And it is precisely for this reason that God ever hears the voice of the contrite, which He will not despise. The call by the humble is the song of the divine, and God hears. God loves songbirds, so is it really unusual that the cherubim have wings?

So then, can we not get a fresh appreciation for that word: ‘of which we cannot now speak particularly?’ Ha yes, but maybe now we can. There is nothing on earth so high and worthy of consideration as the glory of God, and the cherubim with their humble wings, point to just that.

Remember the joy expressed in the company of angels because one sinner was brought from darkness to light? As wonderful as that is, there is something more sparkling on the table, and it is this:  God is glorified.

The cherubim agree.

A guide for decons, aka The absent-minded professors

Some things never change. Ran across this again, and thought it may be timely. Enjoy.

The Lions Den

“Most Christians have pure (blind) faith, not well-versed at all in their own Scriptures and its plethora of incongruencies, contradictions, and erroneous logic — ”

Image result for johnny carson

So sez the false professors of academia as well as the pseudo-professors and self-described experts of Christianity.  Didja catch that?  ‘Professors.’  As in professing. As in mouthing. As in professing but never possessing.  Nice. In one sentence, the decon here has played his hand. He has given us his doctrine.

But first. Did you notice how the decon framed his argument by putting ‘most Christians’ into his little box? Of course the decon is a bible expert and once professional Christian……one who has singularly decided that he has the drop on scripture, and all other people of faith are idiots for not believing what he now despises.

‘Incongruencies, contradictions, erroneous logic.’ Hmm, let’s examine briefly the so-called learned ones claims which have decided…

The best of all time

There will never be a greater male performer. Elvis Presley had a range far and wide, vocals above all others, from ballad to gospel, rock to roll, and everything in between.  Never out of style. Timeless. Enjoy.

With special tribute to Paul the apostle who by way of inspiration, reminds us of the spirit of man. The ability to create and inspire, from Adam through the ages. And btw, modern singers should pay attention to quality.

Honorable mentions

‘Had to get it off my chest Nan, I’m sick of these fanatics. Had a quick look at that cs blog today, that is one very dangerous bigot. Best I keep quiet for awhile to cool off.’

Intolerant of another man’s opinions? Me? Uh, no, I am not an atheist, one who cannot tolerate people’s living faith in God, and who would dare try to steal pure faith from a child. You got the wrong guy buster.

But at least I have to say thank you for the visit from this recent customer, but ‘one very dangerous bigot?’ Hmmm, really, based on what? Because I said a 4 year girl should not have to deal with a male pervert in a girl’s bathroom who thinks he is a woman? Does this recognition of truth make me a bigot? Is it intolerant to forcefully say that a man has no business in a girl’s bathroom?

Is me saying Boy Scouts are no place for girls a statement of bigotry? Boys should also not be admitted in the Girl Scouts. Is this intolerant, or common sense?

Does me saying that the moon above which retains its circular shape, and does not change from a rectangle or a triangle based on the daily whims of that circus aka evolution, make me a very dangerous bigot? Does my resolute mind which recognizes immutable changes, and my saying so, make me a bigot?

Immutable. The cold and antiseptic light of that most wonderful night orb called the moon is not the wishful thinking or accidental mistake resulting from a mindless and purposeless explosion. God created the sun, moon, the stars, and the earth, each with a distinct field of operation. If saying so makes me a bigot, thank you for the compliment.

The so-called bigotry is really a jealous cloak of a false charge coming from people who cannot tolerate any mans confidence in the living God. However, when I point out the utmost arrogance of an alleged cosmic sandstorm worshipped in the minds of godless infidels which revels in tohu va bohu (chaos), I am somehow a bigot because I present God as one of engineering, architecture, direction, control, order, and complete excellence, having zero chaos.

This is man’s business, the chaos part that is. There are no defects in God, and for this, I am the bigot? Really? Well guess what, how’s this morsel for further proof of my mental handicap?

The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the only God of creation, and He is the God of the living, before whom, all men will be summoned, whether they be drowned, burnt, or just go by way of all the earth.

He is the God of Adam, Noah, Daniel, Ruth, Rahab, Naomi, Daniel, Mordecai, Esther, the Baptist, Paul the apostle, and all the saints of every age.

He is also however, and much to the chagrin of fools, the only God that atheists could ever despise, the only God merciful enough to not slay men instantly for such blatant disrespect for being trespassers on another man’s dirt.

Call me a bigot, and I will still tell the truth. The creator of gold, water, coal, birds, whales, men, foxes, and all that is, has no competitor. Sure, collectively there be false gods who are deaf, dumb, and blind, who can neither count to three nor tie their shoes, but let God be true and every man a liar.

Call me a bigot for such unshakeable confidence, and you can keep your fabricated guesswork that gives rocks the ability to construct blood, and where stupidity says that camels were once turtles, or that one day a fox will design a 747 that flies on water power. I delight in all things in, through, and to the Creator, a Creator who by the way, has hard-wired His Presence and purpose into all men, that none have an excuse.

For God’s sake, a man cannot take a single breath without inhaling the awareness of the Creator. But ‘a very dangerous bigot?’ Geez, call me narrow-minded, but it appears bigotry is reserved for the shallow of thought, they who cannot see that the leaves blowing in the unseen wind are but a glimpse into He who is clearly seen.

Mark Twain said that ‘travel is fatal to bigotry,’ and I agree that some need travel more than three feet from their stubborn minds that can see no more relevance and selfishness than themselves. Atheism is the epitome of selfishness. Call me a bigot, but false charges are a dime a dozen. Heck, Paul the apostle was called lunatic, and the apostles idiots. I like the company, the company of people who recognize the living God, and have no problem saying so.

But tolerate other people’s opinions? Sure, every man has the right to be an idiot. And I have a right to report the facts.

Tis a sad sack

You know what really busts my buttons, what really cracks me up? Talking to people who put their eggs in the broken basket of ‘former Christians,’ taking their every word as gospel, defending them as absolute truth tellers, putting more stock in their experiences and opinions than Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. A laff a minute I tell ya.

A ‘former’ believer tells of his absolute disdain in God and scripture because he can not satisfactorily explain how or why God would take the father of children for no reason, leaving them with only a mother. Why? Why would God allow this, IF there is a God? There cannot possibly be a God who allows such meaningless deaths; therefore Genesis cannot be trusted. The God who created whales, camels, foxes, trees, water, and birds, surely is one of defects. And so it goes.

When a man professes Christianity at any level, be it common believer or college professor, he is deemed an unthinking moron, until………he wakes up and deconverts, telling everyone that ‘I was an unthinking fool to believe there was a God,’ all of a sudden, presto change, he is granted immediate Genius status. He now becomes useful in the hall and mirrors of atheism.

I am continually asked: ‘What do you think of the Mr. so and sos who were  linguists, archaeologists, scholars, scientists, who once professed Christianity, but who now reject every word of scripture?’

And I say, do you think God or His word is threatened by the careless studies, loose interpretations, misinformed opinions, or just plain lies of men and women? He has heard it all, and dealt with it all. After all, are we not but the children and offspring of such infidels and fools who have been crying me a river for thousands of years? Of course.

Goliath boasted of his big head. David boasted of a bigger God, and the big goon died headless. Noah spoke of the true God. People laffed in his face. Then it rained, and the humor disappeared. Evil Haman was clueless that there was a God in heaven who sees everything, and Mordecai with Esther kept their razor focus, while the hangman prepped the gallows for Haman. Not funny now was it Mr. Haman.

So the Haman’s have children, and they survive and thrive today, with yet bigger mouths. ‘No God, no proof, if there is a God, He is dead, blah, blah, blah, aaaand, blah.

So it’s God’s fault that a man swerves to miss a cow, and kills a deer, or avoids a raccoon and kills a kid on a bicycle. Unfortunate to be sure, but why blame God? Devastating even to the survivors, but are you sure you really want to put the Creator on trial for negligence regarding the human race?

Uh hello, knock knock? Anybody home in that brain? Does the idea of God’s original creation being very good mean any thing at all? Do not words mean things? What then meaneth this very good? Not only good, or better than most, but very good. Chew on that ye disgruntled whippersnapper.

And then to make matters worse, not only is God’s creation abraded by mouths that move apart from the brain, you have people who say Christ Himself was not only not good, but that He was common, and certainly not even close to very good.  Pour me up a triple hmmm bartender.

So the decon, he or she who once professed faith in the living God, has ruled by artificial fiat that God’s word is useless, unreliable, full of lies, and has no more real value than Huckleberry Finn.  Gimme another hmmm bartender so I can forget about true stupidity.

Sad sacks and laff nuggets:  A man boasts that he spent 50 years in Christian ministry, and now loathes his ‘past life,’ yet cannot go one single day without referencing God, scripture, or people of faith. Right, like someone is holding a knife to his throat saying: ‘you will quote scripture, or write daily posts about the God you despise.’  Oooookay. Uh huh, sure.

A woman writes of her daily disappointments in her past Christian life, and somehow, faith, hope, and charity have become passe, unnecessary, revolting even, since the source of these graces is supposedly suspect. Hate to break it to ya, but you may want to hold up a mirror, since God is blameless and His word unimpeachable.

The regrets, disappointments,  and illusions of men and women regarding their ‘new life’ apart from God is a sight to be pitied, for they have traded the raw bones of truth for the temporary artificial sweetener of false history, pretended intellect, and a life without standards or absolutes. This is a fact.

And oh by the way, regardless of the daily predictable gripes of men, the man Christ Jesus currently sits at the right hand of God, a place solely reserved for God Himself. The book of Hebrews explains such majesty and Excellence, doncha know, and if decons would only value God’s word more than the opinions of fools…

Q tips?

I think it was Drudge who posted a link about an article in the men’s magazine Gentlemen’s Quarterly regarding literary opinion, of which, no surprise here, the Bible made their short list on works not worthy of reading.

Guess what? I did not read their article. I do not care what their editors or writers say about scripture. From a magazine which suggests what color tie to wear or what shoes to put on? Really? Like they have half an ounce of credibility when it comes to the value of God’s word?  Even atheists are not this stupid.

Pornography quarterly, I’m sorry, I meant to say Cosmopolitan quarterly, oops, got that wrong, meant to say Gentlemen’s quarterly, are true rags in the best sense of the word. Appeal to the base of the lowest form of intellect, hiding under expensive perfume, cologne, Rolex’s that can’t guarantee a second more to your life, but wait, did you notice how I snuck in ‘lowest form of intellect’ when speaking of the rich and the famous?

We assume ‘very smart’ when speaking of the elite or jet set, because they have figured out how to live life being shrewd or independent of anyone or anything. Send off one of these guys, tell him to fetch a left-handed hammer, and he will be lost for a month. As I said, not too smart.

But ‘smart’ is subject to interpretation of course, as many a millionaire couldn’t grow a tomato or know where the gas cap is in their limo. So no, it’s no surprise that scripture made the list of ‘forbidden books,’ or books that are so unworthy of time, judged so by fashion gurus and the truly elite, and agreed upon by so many of their disciples. Ha!

News flash folks. God’s word loses no more lustre than does the sun lose light or heat because of people who hate summer time. Put the bible on a scale with Gentlemen’s quarterly, and it’s safe to say that the magazine full of advertisements and Ken dolls could not compare to as much as one verse of scripture. It’s not that GQ is that bad, but that God’s word is that good.

Truth has no competitors. Whether it be Woman’s Day, Boys Life, Reader’s Digest, Prevention, Mother Earth News, Atheist’s Are Us, Christianity Today, Golf Digest, Harley USA, or the zillions of monthly’s, none, None, NONE can compete with God’s word. So it is no surprise that the board of a men’s mag would opine that God’s word is irrelevant.  Yeah like they would be interested in hearing what God says of their hearts and conscience!

If so-called learned rabbis can half heartedly ‘find fault’ with scripture, if self-made ‘archaeologists’ can say there was no Red sea or that Joshua never lived; if pseudo scholars ‘teach’ that Christ did not reeeely  rise from the dead, then is any one surprised that the GQ people find God’s word tasteless? No one around here anyway. But it does prove once more:

Let God be true, and every man a liar.

Kickin tail today

Hi brethren. Let’s enjoy some whet stone sharpening shall we.

No man alive can as much as celebrate an honest birthday without acknowledging He who created time in the first place. It’s in the good book doncha know, that the heavenly orbs would be there for man’s ability to gauge days, weeks, months, years, seasons. Yep, God wants thinking people to engage the brain, without which, creatures would be more lost than London fog, left to wander and speculate what ‘time’ it is.

If evolution and atheism had any teeth, one day would have 13 hrs, the next six hours, the next month 54 days, the next month 9 days, and next year would have 44 days, and summer would have icicles hanging from Miami’s posh pools. No design. No purpose. No reliability. Kinda hard to hide from that point.

There is divine consistency in God’s order; ask any 4-year-old ‘who’ made her swing set, and she will not bloviate that her ‘fun center’ was a direct result of an accidental implosion or explosion, with her being the beneficiary of such chaos. No, one must develop the skills to construct a false reality.  Architecture demands the planner. She knows it, as do adults.

And oh, the ‘kinds.’ Love that. More science in Genesis than Darwin could ever dream of, if he, and others, had only paid attention. While the Japanese school teacher lectures on the elephant, you have the American, the Brit, the Irish, and the Chinese teacher’s study the same picture and present the same elephant, in a different dialect of course, but they all know it’s a damn elephant.

The standard of the ‘kinds’ was put in place by one wiser, the greatest Architect of all, who said clearly that elephants produce elephants and not anteaters. This should trouble the godless, for evolution would clap the hands if in fact elephants were to birth canaries, so their offspring could whistle while they work, making godlessness the latest rage.

Oh it’s the rage all right. Yesterday’s news of wasted valuable brain bytes. Which reminds me. Do you dear brethren notice how the false apostles of godlessness have gone into hiding from fine blog sites, and have retreated into private chambers where only the echo of drunkards is heard while pretending they are playing Beethoven’s fifth?

Yes, a victory, as God has never lost an argument, for His word is just as reliable as it was in the beginning. The language of scripture is majestic in demurity. Simple. Elegant. Masterful. God does not waste words, and He impresses with the simple. ‘Let there be light.’ And there was light. No words so sublime, so simple, spoken with such profoundness, to enact His visible glory:

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

And this is where the atheist falls asleep. They (he/she) miss the point of the simple, thinking that simple is not deep enough. Genesis is simple, but this does not mean there are not a thousand layers to unravel. One at a time they unfold, line upon line, here a little there a little, but one will be clueless as to the life and times of man and woman, male and female, if one holds God in contempt for creating the whale first. Don’t fall for evolution which is the devil’s playground.

God was God about His business long before Sagan and Darwin were in diapers. God was God long before littlestonegods ever dreamed of Medusa or Minerva, and waaaay long before the big eared Pharaoh ever thought of strutting his pride before Moses. God was God before there was a seven-day work week, and long before the Timex watch recorded its first second. How God must laugh at the guesses of mans pretended learning and false science.

There were no billions and zillions of years for God to deal with. Pure guesswork by the shortsighted and double minded infidels who are pure purveyors of false science. Time is temporary, surely as God said of His sun and moon. Temporary lights. For earth. Deal with it. But I digressed.

Our blogs have been purged of sorts by the myopic and miserable, obstinate, foolish, caustic, prurient and profane, lewd, and just all around Heinz 57 cauldron of dead men’s bones, representing commenting that tries at every turn to put a dent in scripture, God, or people of faith. Guess what? No can do.

After a stint on believers sites where faith is tried, yet proved to be more resolute than ever, they (yes they) gather others to marshal their forces, and try other sites, fresh meat as it were to recycle the same old story: Got proof of the Exodus? Got proof Daniel was thrown into a den with lions? Got proof Joseph of Arimathea had a tomb? Got proof Nazareth was a real town? Blah, blah, blah, and more blah.

The song is the same dirge of old music, whose band members have long since parted, yet playing their music that even the original musicians find repulsive, but still calling it ‘hip.’ Please get a grip already.

So enjoy the victory believer friends. Your continual defense of things scriptural has been refreshing to witness, and the persistent steadfastness in the face of every kind of insult has been the very best of epic proportion. ‘Keep the faith’ is the fight worth fighting, others, eh, not so much.

But it’s ok to kick butt and take names, after all, ‘Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil, the Lord will repay him.’

To record the deed

If man is no different from beast, if man does not possess a spirit which makes him completely different from an animal, if death is the end of man……forever:

Why then and do pray tell, do humans NOT keep genealogical records for ground hogs?

 

Why then are not their life and times recorded from birthday to the day of death, complete with an epitaph and their own place of memorial? It only takes brutal honesty to face this answer; and the answer is clear as lightning, and as loud as a thousand thunderclaps. The answer crushes the human conscience.

The fact is, men are not broken up over seeing a dead coyote, or a varmint run over by a truck. There is an innate sorrow upon seeing the untimely death of a human, that which is incomparable to the death of a jackal, again a reminder, IF we are honest. The death of your child and the subsequent anguish is not even in the same universe as the death of your gerbil. It’s a fact of life, only the prejudiced and ignorant would disagree.

So let’s repeat for emphasis: if a man’s existence ends at the grave, why then, in every county building and Recorder of Deeds, are there NOT records for the dead hyenas, jackals, and coyotes?  Just maybe, the good book is correct, that man is in fact made in the image of God, and death is the temporary ending of what God began, just as He said, and just as it is written.  The perennial flower agrees with me too by the way.

 

Etc:  man is not the brute beast that godlessness would so love to enjoy, even though on occasion, man has in fact acted like the wild boar, but still, we remember all of mankind. The genealogy of man indicts once and for all the wicked and utterly depraved idea that man is no more relevant than a dead coyote.

Logos, Wut?

This is far better than anything I could have written today. Pop over to insanitybytes place and consider the living Word in ways you may have avoided. Enjoy.

See, there's this thing called biology...

The word “logos” keeps popping up. It’s a bit funny how I can get myself into so much trouble over a single word. I haven’t yet forgotten the epic melt down over the word “in.” I feel like I should issue a trigger warning with this post in advance, just in case.

So in philosophy, psychology, rhetoric, religion, “logos” is simply a word derived from the  Greek  meaning  “ground”, “plea”, “opinion”, “expectation”, “word”, “speech”, “account”, “reason”, “proportion”, and “discourse.” Clear as mud right?

In faith it gets even more complicated, “logos” means word, but not just any word, The Word, as in Jesus Christ. John 1:1 tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Psalm 33:6 tells us, “By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth.”
