Chew the cud will ya

Cows may be much smarter than we the people. They chew the cud as it were, thinking about things over and over and over. Now then, think on this:

Image result for cows It is easier to believe that the scriptures are true, than it is for a man to believe he will live to see tomorrow.

    What is easier or more difficult to believe is fairly irrelevant. Neither has anything to do with whether something is actually true

      Hate to break it to you mike, but God’s word is good yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

      What you think of truth is irrelevant to the truth itself. It does not ask for your opinion.

      God made the stars. This is true. God made man in His image. This is true. He made all creatures great and small.

      We do not own the tomorrows allotted to us, and may be revoked at any time. This is also true.

        Speaking of God’s word and it’s integrity cs… three questions:
        1. Was Judas remorseful or unrepentant?
        2. Did he throw the money back to the priests or keep it?
        3. Who bought the ‘field of blood’?
        Be careful with your answers… there is a known contradiction involved

        In reply to ColorStorm.
        Does your NT have the long ending of Mark 16?
        Or is it in brackets? Or is there a footnote below saying it wasn’t authentic?

        In reply to ColorStorm.
        How about the story of the woman caught in adultry? Authentic or later addition to the gospel of john?

          Will any answer be satisfactory so much so that you will agree that the scriptures are good in every way, and will you then apologize for deleting God from His own creation?:

          You have just disqualified yourself then from any further ‘answers,’ but rest assured, the word of God is not threatened by mens petty gripes.

          I will say though, as I have said before, you ask the wrong questions, and ignore the answers already given.

          I will not play your ‘myth’ game, lest others get the impression your gripes are credible. Remember, I have read your past exchanges with other believers, and how your 500 comment threads are a pure waste of time.

          Consider the cow…….as others have. And no, no contradictions, only faulty understanding.

          You, like many others, post endless comments in rapid fire proving you do NOT actually think about what is staring you in the face.

          This is why some people need a leash! Now back on point. Read the scriptures yourself about Judas, since ANY answer I give you will be unacceptable. I am not playing your game.

          Mike, if you were in the least interested in the ‘answers,’ you would seek them on your own. My food will never satisfy your stomach.Yes, THIS is an answer.

          Secondly, you are talking to a christian. I am well aware of your feigned interest by THIS reference:
          ‘But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.’

          Your ‘questions’ are not even in the same universe. Cry all you want. Accuse all you want. Go write s blog complaining that your ‘questions’ were not answered.

          But I can assure you. NO answer will satisfy a rebellious heart. Final answer.

          As I said mike, the word for the day:

          ‘Feigned.’

          No contradictions. You think you are clever. You think you have the drop on God and scripture. I rest my case.

          As a bonus, scripture explains the life and times of Judas Iscariot quite well. But the question you need to ask yourself is why you concern yourself with a man who you say never lived………..and acted a certain way because another man who also never lived…………died……

          You create your own riddles then complain when others do not enjoy your circus. ‘Feigned.’

          Concept of the day… feigned defence of the scriptures. I have these posts and comments and dsicussions on my blog because people like you refuse to have them honestly on yours.
          For me, it’s not feigned interest and you know it. Cast whatever narrative you need to to avoid asking questions you think already have answers to, but I’m an example of one who did and ended up deconvert ing from the Faith I held for 34 years and propagated for 25 of those. It matters to me now as it did then ‘whether these things be so’. I’m sorry that you have no such concern

          But I will not help you in your deconnery, and don’t pretend to ask questions that you supposedly know the answers to. You have provided a great service to any body following from afar. People are well aware of your intended snares, which good people know how to avoid, while at the same time present the truth of scripture in exposing foolishness.

          All you have are personal attacks and dishonesty. Questions are not traps and asking people to think is not ensnaring them. You are a very creative writer, but you do yourself and your readers great disservice in how you treat others who disagree and ask questions you don’t want to consider the answers to honestly. Yes, I will be doing a post probably for later this week. You are one of the poster children for what is wrong with Christian blogging these days. I encourage discussion and exchange of ideas. You will be welcome to add to the conversation you refuse to allow on your blog

          Ah but mike, if only you were serious and interested. You say questions are not traps? Depends who is asking……….

          It is you who preach the gospel of scriptural mythology, not me.

          I believe every word of it, while you believe none of it. Your blog posts regarding Christianity are enough proof that discernment is a valuable tool, which I find quite helpful when met with such resistance.

          Truth comes with a price. We must admit and face our rebellion, rebellion which godlessness mocks.

          The ruling on the field stands. God’s word is very good.

          Since CS did not think it worth the bother to dignify your questions with a direct answer, I guess I won’t do so, at least not here.

          Instead, i will just make a few observations.

          I have only been born again only for about ten years. So I am occasionally seized by doubt. I see some question such as yours and wonder what is that about. Now some people deal with their doubts by ignoring them, considering that an an of faith. However, I am appropriately named Thomas. I want an answer for my doubts. So I go looking for answers, having faith I will find them. I suggest you do the same. Jesus gave Thomas his answer. If you ask sincerely, why would He not do the same for you?
          Your questions are not new. They are as old as Matthew and Acts. Scholars have examined what you suppose to be a known contradiction. Unlike previous generations, all we have to do find an answer for most of our questions is to use a good search engine.

          Tkx Tom for this.

          Imagine the credibility of the scripture writers by stating ‘known contradictions.’

          They were to be faithful scribes as it were, and trusted they were with another man’s message.

          It was not their right to ‘interpret.’ Hence the beauty of the scriptures, left untouched and still intact for anybody willing to take the time to see that there are things perhaps hard to understand, but still, NO contradictions.

          I for one, am well aware of people who are sincerely interested in following the idea of ‘here a little there a little,’ to get the sense of God’s word, and then they who want ten thousand ‘answers’ to fuel their fire of disdain for scripture.

          I think the word is called discernment. ‘How can David’s son be David’s Lord?’ is an oft used ‘contradiction,’ but once again presents the beauty of scripture when understood.

          ‘Chewing the cud’ is what Tom here just showed you. He admitted doubt which is common, (Does Thomas ring a bell?????????????) but knows that God’s word can withstand any petty gripes of man’s impatience to understand.

    The mommies chewed their cud for 7 years before they finally decided that I was not a threat to them as I walked by.

    But then again, maybe it was the company I kept.

    I was always walking with two border collies whom the cud chewers had to train not to try and herd them anywhere, especially the babies.

    Tkx pete, but sooner or later you will run out of days, and your ‘belief’ about seeing tomorrow will be challenged, whereas, God’s word will have remained the same. The word of God teaches our lives are like a vapor. Poof. the older we get, the more God’s word is seen to be resolute.

    And there is a hidden truth also, in that it takes quite the faith to believe you will live to see tomorrow. So don’t mock faith. We all have it, even if misdirected or used in denial.

    So yep, much easier to believe God’s word is true TODAY.
