Come a little bit closer

One of my fav’s here, but now with an added bit of liberty:

‘I didn’t quite hear ya. You say I evolved from a pile of what? You say I woke up one day and decided to be king of beasts, having never seen the other beasts? So you think I went to the college of broadcasting for this grand voice box? Do you think I learned to be fearless having no clue what fear was? Do you think I went online and ordered these special teeth? Do you think I took the Charles Atlas course of bodybuilding for this exceptional power?

Let me tell ya, but come just a little bit closer, so I can whisper in your ear, and no I’m not going to tear your head off, even though you deserve it if you think for one second that I was not made to give glory to the Creator of all that is.

C’mon, I dare ya, come a little bit closer and tell me there is no God, and may I add, you cannot lift one leg or move one step without being dishonest. And don’t even think about opening your mouth in protest. I’ll spare your ears with a roar that will send you into yesterday at this distance.’

      Hello violet,

      But don’t strain at a gnat, and swallow the hippo………………

      Perhaps you have never heard of the Mosquito coast ๐Ÿ˜‰ All creatures great and small have a purpose…….even such as you and I.

  2. Ha! I think I rather like the Lion’s Den. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I had a bit of a discussion yesterday about the fruit of the spirit, “love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, etc.” It was suggested that those things are just innate to us all, the milk of human kindness, and I thought, really?! Because Buddy, it actually takes God Himself to convince me to treat you with any kindness. If I had my way, I just put you in a catapult and evict you from my planet. Alas, some thing are better left unsaid, but I was sure thinking them.

      Do you notice how God is well ahead of us ms bytes? It is fruit. Singular. All shades and looks from the same source.

      If we are truly kind, we will be truly good, but we can’t be good while choking our neighbor, then excusing ourselves by saying we have a problem with self control, still maintaining we have the ‘fruit of the spirit.’

      The good stuff requires reaching, reaching outside of ourselves, top shelf……..and the cost is steep but easy.

      We just need recognize that it does not belong to us per se ๐Ÿ˜‰ and this is what u just said.

      ** But maybe instead of booting them off the earth, maybe just send them to a lions place……. lol———-where grace abounds though!

          I signed up for a WP website several years ago, under the name ‘archaeopteryx,’ but I really didn’t care for their format, and when I found another website provider – Website Palace – that DID have a superior format, I signed with them and kept it for four or five years. Then they decided to discontinue the format I was leasing, and offered me a WordPress site instead, but I said no, thanks.

          Then I ran across sites like Nan’s and Ark’s, and realizing that I had a latent WP account, tried to log on so I could post comments, but after all that time, I had forgotten my password, so I had to open a whole new account under ‘archaeopteryx1,’ as they seem not to have any means for me to recover my lost password. Does that satisfy your curiosity as to why I don’t have a WP account? Because I don’t like the WP format, and wouldn’t blog on WP if they paid me.

          As for “Iโ€™ll ignore sentence no. 1, as it is illogical, absurd, and insulting to the king of beasts,” read a book that doesn’t involve confirmation bias. You’re doing nothing but demonstrating your ignorance.

        The lion being the role model for kids? Griping that the male waits to have gazelle burgers delivered while the lion sleeps tonight……..

        Or is it simply, God in His infinite wisdom and pleasure, made them all, male and female, that people like us would shut up and see that He created the species, not you..

          I never said that, I said he was hardly a good role model. In order to “promote feminism,” he would have to stand for equal rights between the sexes, which means he would have to get off his lazy can and hunt down 50% of the family food, which he is obviously not inclined to do. But then your god made him that way, didn’t he –?

          Ah yes, words of wisdom there. There’s a bumper sticker that says “evolve already,” as if to say people need to get it together and progress as a human race. And yet if you believe in evolution, than hundreds of thousand of years have refined us into what we are. One cannot be praising evolution while at the same complaining that it isn’t politically correct and has not delivered socially acceptable results.

          Also, how do you know? How do you know that people are deeply flawed and that we should do better? Where is that standard coming from? It’s a Godly standard, it’s an expectation and an awareness that we have higher selves, that what we have created here on Earth is deeply flawed, imperfect, and sometimes down right evil. I don’t think the lion ponders these things. He’s just busy enjoying the lionesses and the meat they bring him. Then along comes evolutionist people to inform the lion he’s doing it all wrong. Makes me want to whack my head on my desk. Some of us couldn’t think our way out of a wet paper bag.
