Wake up thou that sleepest….

Animals sleep as a reward for labor; or they simply sleep because they want to.

Image result for sleep

God gave humans the gift of sleep as the same rest from labor, to heal and grow, to prepare for tomorrow, but far too often sleep is needed to give us a break from our egos. That being the case, you could wonder how some people ever wake up.

Evidence of an exaggerated ego? It appears for a person to say ‘there is no God,’ this is quite a stretch being that life is proof enough.

Ms Wisp observed when speaking of God in her post:   https://violetwisp.wordpress.com/2015/07/14/the-emperors-new-clothes/

‘We can’t see him, hear him, touch him, smell him, measure him or detect him in any way. Christians are still convinced he’s there.’

Ah no, we can see him, we can hear Him, we can touch, smell, measure, and detect Him in EVERY way; we simply award the Oscar to ourselves, giving congratulatory speeches thanking ourselves while we hold our hands over our eyes, put our fingers in our ears, hold our noses, use the wrong standard for measurement, and have dead batteries in the heart for detection, all the while flattering ourselves with our alleged intellect which leaves God out from his own creation.

Wake up already.

Still not convinced and willing to cling tenaciously to the cold facts of a hard heart? Then use your eyes and look up, and look within; use your ears to hear the sounds of life, the babbling brook or a thunderstorm, the cry of a newborn wanting her mother, or the pure laughter of a boy with a toy truck; touch Him through compassion, mercy, truth, patience, joy, and by the hands and words of others; smell the lily of the valley or a fresh blanket of snow which points to the author of that scent; and measure the unfathomed boundaries of infinity if you can; and detection is easy:

There is this thing called the conscience which is pretty much all the proof one needs as the Great Detector.

Too much sleep is a bad thing…

By the way, WHO cares for you while you are dead to the world………….?

  9. Great post, Colorstorm. The Emperor has no Clothes, huh? Methinks Sleeping Beauty just needs to avail herself of a kiss. 😉

    There are many things we cannot really “see,” the air that we breath, the wind, music, and yet we all know that they are there. There is an entire microscopic world we did not even know existed until we invented microscopes so we could “see” what we knew to be true but could never really prove. Dogs can hear sounds we cannot hear and people became well aware of this long before we could even measure such things. It is the height of arrogance to try to claim that God is not real simply because one set of human eyes “cannot” see him. The whole of Creation speaks to His existence and sings His praises! Sometimes the best way to see Him is to just close your eyes and feel the music, but that is such a hard thing to explain to people who are afraid.

      “In sober truth,” remarked the strikingly discerning, daringly honest 19th Century philosopher, John Stuart Mill, “nearly all the things which men are hanged or imprisoned for doing to one another, are nature’s every day performances.”

      Insanity, in its simplest possible expression, this world is not and never was as Paley declared, a happy world teeming with delighted existence. So-called healthy ecosystems are the focal points of appalling levels of suffering; hubs where organisms face a shockingly deep menu of diabolical fears, obscene levels of stress, and an array of miseries and pain generally too difficult to contemplate. Like the Pheidole ant whose bodily autonomy is usurped by a pathogenic fungus that invades its brain then grows out of its head, the majority of organisms live out a brief, fretful existence of unforgiving competition bookmarked by unspeakable violence and cruelty.

      “If nature were kind,” noted biologist Richard Dawkins, “she would at least make the minor concession of anesthetising caterpillars before they are eaten alive from within.”

      Nature is not, however, kind. Incubated inside an inchworm, braconid wasp pupae, for example, climb out from their host only to then attach themselves to its exterior like foul branches, consuming the helpless worm alive over days. The stigmatomma oregonense ant will paralyse the earth centipede and feed it alive to its ravenous larvae. Hoverfly larva will capture the milkweed aphid and sink in their vacuum cleaner-like mouths, slowly sucking the creature’s living innards out while it struggles to hold onto life.

      That is the nature of this world.

          So then you accept, Insanity, that a malevolent hand shaped this universe? You concede it is the strongest explanation for the nature of this world… A creation designed to forge greater and greater expressions of suffering over time, suffering that delights the Creator.

          This is a positive shift in your worldview, Insanity. I’m please reality hasn’t fully escaped you. It is, indeed, a remarkable design. The ubiquity of suffering is the master pacifier, a potent anaesthetic and persuasive desensitiser, and through the universality of His works—where both predator and prey, wicked and good suffer enormously without favouritism or bias in a universe whose laws know no sympathy—the wicked architect has ensured the curious and the distrusting will seek out any alternative explanation for that which they do not wish to recognise, or better still, not see the depravity at all.

          What is there to be prosecuted, after all, when both the innocent and the guilty suffer in equal measure? What is there to blame and accuse of injustice when both the hunter and the hunted inhabit the same appallingly violent, unforgiving space? Diseases do not discriminate, parasites know no bigotry, wild fires hold no opinion on what or who they incinerate, and a river will just as soon swallow up a fawn as it will drag down and drown the lioness chasing it. An avalanche does not single out which trees to level, what village to erase, or which body to mangle and bury. A drought disperses its ruin without care or concern for which organism in its terrible wake has been kind, or which has been unnecessarily cruel. The steady decay of old age has no regard for even the most spectacular life lived, defiling the incorrigible and the obedient with a horrendous and dispassionate efficiency. There is no creativity in the trajectory of volcanic bombs, and life-suffocating ash plumes will move carelessly with the careless winds. Death, be it swift and charitable, or protracted and hard, belongs to all, and here the truly impartial observer glimpses the conspicuous genius underwriting that which has been created: There is no lie.

    Interesting CS.

    “A bee amongst the flowers in spring is one of the most cheerful objects that can be looked upon,” observed Paley in a wild flight of blinded fantasy. “Its life appears to be all enjoyment; so busy, and so pleased.” Under the microscope, the bee’s outer body is however found to be infested with the ferocious varroa mite, their airways riddled with impatiently greedy acarine (tracheal) mites, their intestines ravaged by the veracious nosema apis, and their hives, where some degree of safety should at least be expected, is instead crowded with gluttonous bacillus larvae and the hideous Brood Disease

    Could a benevolent designer, a craftsman who is mindful of harmony and joy, pleased by plenty and safety, tolerate such an abysmal existence for its most precious expressions of creation? Is it conceivable, the Impartial Observer asks, that a caring Creator—the Good Father—who is fond of laughter, delighted by happiness and has the best interests of life forever in the fore, arrange his great masterpiece in such a way that obscene levels of meaningless suffering are not just allowed for, but underpin everything? The answer, as studiously articulated by John Fiske, is No:

    “A scheme which permits thousands of generations to live and die in wretchedness cannot… be absolved from the … charge of awkwardness or malevolence … it is impossible to call that being Good who, existing prior to the phenomenal universe, and creating it out of the plenitude of infinite power and foreknowledge, endowed it with such properties that its material and moral development must inevitably be attended by the misery of untold millions of sentient creatures for whose existence their creator is ultimately alone responsible.”

    If it is impossible to call the Creator Good, as Fiske duly notes it is, then what remains by way of an explanation for this world is simple malevolence. Without need for excuse or elaborate theodicies, malevolence explains the world that is, and by the strength and rigidity of this explanation an imprint—an outline—of the Creator who cherishes His anonymity is revealed. It is the explanation that exists without need for an alibi, scapegoat, hastily arranged apology, or laboured advocacy. Where the theologian is forced to rescue an incompetent spirit who has, for one imaginative reason or another, lost total control of his creation, the gospel of the malevolent hand stands unchaste, uncontaminated, and inviolable. As an explanation for the world that has been, is, and will be, malevolence is complete. Yesterday, today and tomorrow are made clear without a cover story or inventive pretext.

          It is self proving. The sun above is temporary, but the word of God abides forever, as it is settled in heaven. Yet, believers are asked to defend it because theological professors find fault. Really?

          The genealogies are undisputable. The records are infallible. The words are convicting. The prophecies are sure. There is no book on earth which presents man as the word of God does, after all, God knows what is in man. No other book on earth reveals the Lights and Perfections of the living God. Then there are the ‘living epistles,’ the lives of men, read by all.

          It is the eternal anvil which has not only withstood, but wore out every hammer against it. Remember the great bible scholar Satan? Yea him. His attack on the word of God left Him empty as He had the audacity to twist and quote scripture to the Lord of glory. And the Lord simply magnified His authority with the exemplary response: ‘It is written again,’ and the arch-enemy was reduced to the slithering creature that he is.

          The Lord gave no explanation, no credibility to the assault, whose only dialog was: ‘It is written, again.’ Period.

          —This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.– (scripture by the way)

          Every attempt by the great wizard jz to put God in a box, has failed, will fail today, and will always fail.

          As long as you fashion God in YOUR image……..you will continue in your willful sleep.

          Yes, before there was light, there was only darkness, a perfect chaos within which the Creator resided. The Creator is unique from the Creation, is He not? The author of John is correct, in a manner of speaking.

          This says it all, doesn’t it, Colourstorm. And this is reflected in the nature and central impulses of this creation, which is towards greater and greater complexity.

          Nice try in stealing the authorship of John the apostle. And nice try claiming chaos in the Creator;

          ‘In Him is no darkness AT ALL……………..’ – So why was it necessary for him to say, “Let there be light!” if he already WAS light? Are you saying that your god is comprised entirely of photons? Who created the photons? Your god? If so, of what was he comprised before he created photons?

          I think you may have painted yourself into a corner – or at the very least, you’re not making sense, but we’ve rather gotten used to that.

          ‘In Him is no darkness at ALL.’ ‘He is before ALL things, and by Him ALL things consist.’ ‘ALL things were made by Him, and without Him was not anything made that was made………….’

          Yeah, like your heroes could even imagine such thoughts, let alone chastise the reality and truth behind them.

          God’s word lays bare the darkness and pettiness of the unbelieving heart, yet gives opportunity to ‘wake up.’
