It’s the root I tell ya

It’s amusing to hear the gripes filed about the so-called shortcomings of scripture.

‘It’s not a book of science.’ ‘The morals are bad.’ ‘The spirituality is bad.’ ‘The philosophy is bad.’ ‘Just a bunch of fables.’ ‘An entire volume of lies.’ ‘Don’t allow children to read it.’ ‘A book for the mentally cripple.’ ‘Can’t trust it.’ ‘The geography is wrong.’ ‘The history is fabricated.’ ‘A book compiled by superstitious and inrgonat people.’

If I had the time to write ‘blah blah blah’ a zillion times, would my point be stronger? As it is, just let me say, take note of a consistent pattern contained in these mindless rock tosses.

It’s not a book of science. Nope. Never said it was. It contains science, but there are men and books whose writings confirm the truth of scripture, while God has given us a lifetime to learn that He knows what He is doing. A book of morals? Ha, who are you to define morals when the morality of your own existence is challenged? Bad spirituality? If you mean documenting the wiles of men, and attributing their folly to God….please stop.

Fables? Someone said they heard a bird mimic a man, they said the bird ‘spoke,’ wait, wasn’t that parroting? But no it can’t be, must be a fable, birds can’t ‘talk.’ But men harass the scriptures because of their limitations of the God who created the bird, and complain that a whale’s throat is too small. Once more, please.

So let’s talk for a sec about this other miracle of nature, that root that just so happened to appear out of dry ground, that bit of life that sprang from the barren wasteland where there is no chance of life.

See the frozen tundra and watch a naked man freeze to death in under two minutes at 110 below zero, while the polar bear laughs at the cold. Watch a man drown under water as he holds his breath gasping for air while the fish swim lazily by. And watch a man drop like a rock as he jumps off a building while the eagle glides quietly along.

So why mention this? Ah yes, doncha just love the science of He who created the different kinds of flesh? It’s all about the root I tell ya, the root of creation.

Bears, fish, and birds so testify to the song of the root, giving thanks to the One who equipped them, so unlike man who would more quickly drown in ignorance, freeze in foolishness, or sink in stubbornness, rather than give thanks to the God of scripture.

‘Whose seed is in itself.’ And therein is contained the root of science, morals, philosophy, spirituality, and the God-given ability to comprehend history, geography, mathematics, and to live a rich life compliments of He who fashioned the human mind.

But the ultimate root is Christ Himself, who brought grace and truth where there was none. Can ANY good thing come out of Nazareth? In a world where truth is despised, He brought it, and proved that in spite of the charlatan acts of men, God is for us. Who knew?

A root out of dry ground.

And of course the root was trampled upon, as this fragrant one exposed the weeds of humanity and shone the light of truth into the darkness of the heart. The heart said: ‘No, away with Him.’ Ah yes, such is the result of a seared conscience. But do take note where the root was received: by the thirsty, as it should be.

This desert place called Calvary, this place where life was taken, yet where life was given, yes, this root took hold and sprang once more. The source of life, the bread of life, and the water of life cannot be denied. And oh, let’s not forget, this despised one was both the root and offspring of David. Of course.

Without God, there is no root.  -For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.-

And so science is in subjection to the laws of God, and scripture agrees of course, for it bears the root of truth.

    Yet you know the word is ‘ignorant.’ Hmm, seems to be a testimony to He who designed the brain, as I have told you a dozen times.

    And btw, it was a sarcastic and apparent useful spelling to make the larger point about men who were charged with being somehow ‘lesser’ in intellect.

    But we say this because of arrogance and a lack of understanding. Perhaps you have written a book greater in content than the bible?

    But the word for the day is ‘root.’

      I didn’t write it, but “Dick and Jane” is greater in content than the Bible.
      (CS sez: link not necessary to support the absurdity and lame comment of dick and jane)

      I’m surprised your god (CS corrects: God) didn’t correct your spelling errors for you —

        And finally, this comment may just prove that a few wires are loose in the minds of many.

        Even the most caustic of unbelievers has admitted to the elegant style and unmatched inspiration of the scriptures, both old and new.

        How does one reason with a person who has so debased the monarch of books? You don’t, and it just may be possible that these are the words by a person who has spent too much time at the bottle. Just sayin.

          I don’t know anyone who has – could you name a few?

          (CS SEZ: I am not dignifying this request with an answer. Do your own homework. And do take note of your incessant smokescreens and comments that are so far out of touch toward posts you comment on. Nice work. Please take a break.)

  4. Ah, lovely! I too have been thinking of roots and seeds, fertile ground and hard soil.

    Your post reminds me of how offensive the truth really is, how much outrage the bible inspires, which then speaks to it not being “just a book” at all. The bible still banned in dozens of countries and people risk their very lives just owning one. What in the world could be so scary, so threatening about one little book? And yet you listen to those who squawk at us relentlessly and you come to realize this isn’t just a book at all! Anybody getting this upset over the Grimm’s fairy tales? Aesop’s Fables?

      No one tries to pass those off as real, or sends missionaries to foreign countries, to convince the natives that Jack really DID throw a bunch of beans on the ground and grew a beanstalk that reached all the way to a castle in the clouds.

      Yep. There is a hunger, a thirst, which when presented, require action.

      They received the word gladly………..They put their fingers in their ears……….They said ‘come back another time….’
      They assaulted the messenger.

      But only a fool would criticize the engine of love that drives such a mission. Love is some special fruit that just doesn’t grow on every tree ya know. 😉 It can be ignored or refused, but it’s reality cannot be denied.

      You are right too; people know instinctively what a grim tale or fable is……..yet when Peter cut off a mans ear, heck, the context is plain enough. And Malchus received quite a gift.

      And He who created the stomach knows full well what food really satisfies……..

      Btw. Squawk? Love that ms bytes.. Reminds me of griping crows. tks
