Less Trav. . .


There are two paths in life. One is narrow, and requires The stealth of heaven to navigate. Very few walk there on, for godly agility eludes them.  

But consider the other path. It is broad enough that a man may carry the immense lies of the imagination. Those who take this path have numerous gods of their own. Confusion is their king and worthless folly their riches.  


The light yoke of the Living God’s Holy Son is too little for them; to wear his will, his mercy, his love and his grace, is to walk about naked in their estimation. As is written, “the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing”. They would rather be clothed with palpable trivia than truth.  


Beyond question every path has a destination. The way we take determines the house we will enter. It is written by the law of God that this will be so. His law is immutable. And it is blazing the apparent in the nature of things around us, as God has created it to be.  


Due to the pride of man and the free will commanded by the gospel of Christ, I can do no more than write these words. It is no feather in my cap if some listen. It is no joy of mine if most don’t.  

Proud?


I consider the size of the universe and see how small and worthless I am. I may hold a pebble in my hand. But I can’t say where the pebble came from or what will come of it when I put it down.  

I consider the complexity of every man. Isn’t everyone of us a universe of its own. The mix of knowledge and will, pressed down into some controlled form of chaos.  


Where is room for pride? The pride of man is simply a drunken ignorance. Reality tells an entirely different story.  


If the nature of this life is so complex, what shall we do about the following question?  Where will you go when you die?  

Healthy?


Now they are saying we should take hotdogs away from our children.  Evidently someone determined they are not efficiently edible.  Why do they waste so much time on useless trivia?  Why do they spend so much money to gain absolutely nothing?


If the sum of life is the body, then all these radical health doers will live forever. But don’t even the healthy die? Doesn’t even the meticulous mouth fail to feed the stomach? Doesn’t even clean blood cease to flow?

Because their eyes are fixed on mud, they think everyone should only see mud. But by his grace and by the testimony of others in the world, I see a much larger picture than a clean and tidy plate.  


Open your eyes, you Dr Sopk-olites. There is a vast amount more to life than the decaying body you wrestle so diligently to preserve.  


What have you to say about the health of the soul?!

Expected Usefulness


My left foot works just fine.  

When I want to open the door, mindlessly, I command my hand to turn the knob and the door opens.


If I want to see where I’m going, all I have to do is raise my eyelids.  


Like almost everyone else, I don’t see the miracle of this very often. My body is slave to my mind. There’s no need for pageantry regarding the foot, hand or eyelids.  But let any of these be injured so that they don’t work as they should, you’ll find me quite concerned for the welfare of my body.  


The apostle John said “The true light, coming into the world, that gives light to every man”.


The light. Have we become complacent about righteousness?  Have we begun to treat it like our body?  We take for granted that we know what is right to do.   Where did we get that knowledge?


Complacency quickly evaporates when we realize we have done something stupid and violently broke the laws of God.  


When is it the proper time to fall on our knees and give thanks that God himself has placed righteousness in our minds and hearts?  Without the Lord Jesus we would immediately fall into disrepair (No matter whether you believe in him or not.).

What Do You Rxpect?


The religion of the world worships in a temple.  It lay on the sand of ignorance, but temple was built with two materials. One material is expectations. The other material is assuming.  

Here’s the question. Is the temple made of expectations or is it the foundation? Or is the temple made of assuming and the foundation is expectations?


This is not a “chicken or egg” debate. I am personally very curious about the matter. 


Because if the foundation of world religion is expectations, I simply close my ears. But if the foundation is built on assuming, then I can expect that everything I am will be dragged through the mud of suspicion long before I am excepted on any level.


Don’t think the Christian Church is exempt from this trouble.


P. S.  

Expectations are often written down as rules and regulations.

Assuming is a pure derivative of opinion.

Division 


You can live inside of a lie. But not for long. There is no lie in Life. And you know that.  

If something “is not” yet is promoted as if it is, those who promote it are living inside a lie. Such people are filled up with grand notions of self importance, all the while what they think they have will evaporate to what it was while they thought they had “something”.  
What I’ve just written is a law of eternity and will never be pushed aside.  

And something more:
If you promote a lie that injures the lives of others (no matter their nearness to you) you are an accomplice to their troubles. Therefore, such a person is guilty of willingly living death, and spreading that death to others.  

I know such people think they are being useful. But ignorant harm is no less damaging than willful violence.  

Examine the fruit of what you are promoting. Does it create peace and Life? Or does it lead to more divisions and violence.  

This truth does not address Christians alone.  It remains in place for all people.  

Why add to your own condemnation? Be a servant of Life, or remain an agent of death. Doesn’t the choice belong to everyone individually?
