What have we become? On one hand we do what we say are good deeds. On the other hand we let hatred control us.
Think about it. We give $10 to help someone else. The deed takes less than 30 seconds. We spend hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades letting ourselves feed on hatred. How can the good deeds outweigh what we really are?
The day will come when we will stand shoulder to shoulder with every man, woman and child ever to have lived. What will be standing next to them is the very creature we have allowed ourselves to become. Naked, in raging purity, of every vulgar thing we have become.
Words mean things folks. They unveil our wicked hearts. For out of the heart the mouth speaks.
People easily forget the grotesque display of our mouths not remembering that everyone’s cesspool stands wide open. Shiny little jewels of tiny good works adorn the upper edge. But the stench lay frothing in the heart.
Do you want to judge with your eyes? You want to make summations of lives whose background you know nothing about? You want to pigeonhole people without the wisdom of God? You want to be the judge when the judge will oversee the great gathering?
Every one can do anything they please while they are here under the sun. But you will take the sum of who you are when you are taken from this place.
The Romans were fixated on death. It was their form of authority, entertainment, and motivation to do what is right. Prosperity meant mingling of blood and money.
For the most part, today’s society is fixated on peace and longevity. It has to be said that they worship these. The majority of people don’t worship God they worship their own tranquility. Prosperity means apathy and money.
Still the world is no better off, because the presence of God is ignored just like it was in the days of Rome. The soul is only considered for the betterment of the man.
The tools of the trade have changed. But the trade remains, glorify Man.
Everything in this world gives out sooner or later. Because of that we are born into doubt. It’s called duplicity of mind. Choosing one thing or another may or may not provide what we’re looking for. Chances are, a 50-50 opportunity will almost always be chosen wrong. And even if we are right, nothing in this world is designed to last forever. It’s better to be prepared to lose. At least then you’re not bound to be as dejected.
Christ is not like that. You could choose him as your God and be absolutely sure you have chosen perfectly. When you go to him bring your sack of doubt along with you. He knows you have it, it’s ridiculous to try to pretend you don’t. All you have to do is give him the opportunity to prove that he is the sure thing. Every time you reach in your sack to pull out a doubt so you can compare it to him it will pale in to insignificance in time.
No one has ever believed in him because someone else said he’s trustworthy. Just as with everything else, experience is the best teacher.
