THE HOLY SPIRIT CONCEIVED WITHIN THE WOMB OF A WOMAN THE SON OF GOD OR DID SOMETHING ELSE HAPPEN BECAUSE THE SON OF GOD WAS PRE-EXISTENT. Maybe The Holy Spirit Caused The Woman's Egg To Start Growing Into A Fetus So That A Body Could Be Prepared For The Son Of God To Enter. Not understanding what the Bible really states causes much confusion among the minds of people who are only half-hearted when it comes to knowing the truth.

Actually, to say that Lord Jesus was conceived the by the Holy Spirit has deceptive connotations that could lead a person into thinking that the One in Whom dwelt the fullness of the Godhead, in bodily form, was not pre-existent.
  • Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant,[a] being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. (Philippians 2:5-8)
That the body of the child was conceived within the womb of the mother by means of the Holy Spirit, so that it could be entered into by the Eternal Son of God at birth, is more in keeping with what the Bible actually states.
  • Consequently, when Christ came into the world, he said, “Sacrifices and offerings thou hast not desired, but a body hast thou prepared for me;in burnt offerings and sin offerings thou hast taken no pleasure. Then I said, ‘Lo, I have come to do thy will, O God,’ as it is written of me in the roll of the book.” (Hebrews 10:5-7)
Although not immediately apparent even to the discerning reader, those who persist in seeking to understand the truth about existence, eventually discover truth’s reality. A human body was created to become the eternal blood sacrifice, once for all.

Learning Bible Truths Often Requires Disregarding Man-made Assumptions

HOW COULD ANYBODY KNOW WHEN THE UNIVERSE WAS FORMED? How Could Moses Have Know What Happened At The Beginning Of Creation? How can a person know what happened before he was born?

Happy Riches

What a fascinating question; one that many have pondered. How can a person know what happened before he was born? How could anybody know when the Universe was formed? How could Moses have know what happened at the beginning of Creation?

Those who think they are really intelligent, stand back and point out that the Bible is a fabrication because nobody could have known what happened at the beginning of Creation unless the person was there. The not so arrogant read the Bible and note that God showed Moses what His plans were. But then to use the Bible to explain the Bible is called circular reasoning. I suppose one has to be in an echo chamber to know one is in an echo chamber.

The gold fish looks out of its bowl and wonders how it ever got there—well, figuratively speaking. Humans look up into the sky and wonder how the sky appeared, but forget to ask why they were born to suffer and then die. The gold fish does not have a bird brain—at least, not as far as I know.

Moses is accredited with having written the Torah—the Pentateuch. The information therein is attributed to have either come from the Creator God Himself—who was there at the beginning—and other sources that were reliable in respect to the historical account.

In saying the Earth was without form, this means it did not exist as a separate entity. Just like you had no form before you were created or procreated—whichever way you want to portray your coming into existence.

Many people attempt to look at the Bible critically—as if they possessed eternal life and were about to become omniscient—but fail to realize that like the gold fish in the bowl, they are subjected to a time limit.

Realism is the belief that what is happening now is what counts, the past has already been and the future is yet to come. But since this is a belief, pinch yourself in your most tender spot with sharp finger nails and wake up to a little bit of reality. Reality is very much about the “now” experience—if you get the point; that is, if it you are not receiving a pinch and punch for the first of the month.

A thought has no form. A spoken word has no form. The thought cannot be seen. The spoken word cannot be seen. So is this proof of nothing? Yet you may say:
If the Earth was without form, then it was formless. If it was formless, then there was no earth…. How does this knowledge that there was no form, be proof of nothing? Even if the Earth existed in concept only, this does not mean nothing existed.
If nothing exists, then it exists, because no thing exists—a koan; that is, a puzzling paradoxical statement  to ponder.

The Bible essentially teaches us I AM exists, and without I AM, there is nothing. But since I AM WHO EXISTS is infinite, everything that exists does so because The One Who Exists brought it into being. This very One also became flesh and dwelt among men.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness hasn’t overcome it. There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own, and those who were his own didn’t receive him. But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God’s children, to those who believe in his name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. John testified about him. He cried out, saying, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.… Grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has declared him. (John 1:1-18)
Much exists of which we know nothing. Yet it exists, even though we have not been able to form the thought of its existence in our feeble, miserable, minuscule minds. Tragically, too many individuals seem to think that the little they know is everything that exists. Maybe the gold fish in the bowl is better off than those who possess such pathetic mindsets.

From what the Bible says, only humans have the torment of knowing eternity exists without being able to realize it; for death reigns over us all—even if death’s form is not so obvious and appears formless when entertained as a thought.

There is a major difference between the two statements.

“I think of Jesus as God,” indicates that the person actually thinks Jesus is God.

In saying, “I see God in the Lord Jesus,” is equivalent to saying, “I see God in every man,” even if people may not like to admit this.

Moreover, to say that you see God in Jesus can suggest that Jesus is greater than God. For we can say I see good in that person over there. The goodness is part of the person; therefore, the person is greater than good.

If you say, I see Jesus is God, then this is to recognize that God is Jesus.
  • Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? (John 14:9)
  • I and the Father are one. (John 10:30)
For someone to say that I see God in Lord Jesus is not technically wrong, much depends upon the context of the statement. Likewise, thinking of Jesus as God, can mean different things to different people because of their different worldviews.

Always remember that while a word is a thought, so is a sentence, but then it depends upon the paragraph, which in turn could depend upon the context of the surrounding paragraphs and the main idea that permeates what has been written.

For instance, the Bible begins with:
  • In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (Genesis 1:1)
And the Bible finishes with:
What this means is that God created the Heavens and the Earth so that Lord Jesus Christ could be with all the saints. Therefore, the Bible needs to be understood with this in mind. However, the Bible goes a little further and tells us that Lord Jesus Christ Himself is actually not just the Son of God and separate from God, but He is also God:
  • See to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For in him the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily. (Colossians 2:8-9)
  • He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell. (Colossians 1:15-19)
  • Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, taking the form of a servant,[a] being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form he humbled himself and became obedient unto death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name which is above every name. (Philippians 2:5-9)
The Bible tells us that Lord Jesus Christ is actually God and there is no other. Even though all things were created through the Son of God, He desires to enjoy the company of those who are turned into saints from sinners. Rather amazing really.

The Amazing One Who Not Only Pays The Price For Sin But Foretells The Future

Thursday, December 14, 2017

THERE IS ONE GREATER THAN JESUS CHRIST AS FAR AS EVERYBODY IS CONCERNED. Not That This One Is Who People Might Immediately Think Of Being Greater, But Once The Revelation Hits Home, It Is Rather Scary. Life on Earth is a paradox and not just because those who consider themselves alive are going to die or that a seed must die to bring forth more life.

Not to my knowledge. Why would Jesus say that someone greater than Him would come when He is the Word of God made flesh through whom the Universe and life itself came into existence?
  • In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ([a]Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself.He was present originally with God.All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being. In Him was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. (John 1:1-4)
  • [Now] He is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible]; He is the Firstborn of all creation. For it was in Him that all things were created, in heaven and on earth, things seen and things unseen, whether thrones, dominions, rulers, or authorities; all things were created and exist through Him [by His service, intervention] and in and for Him. And He Himself existed before all things, and in Him all things consist (cohere, are held together). He also is the Head of [His] body, the church; seeing He is the Beginning, the Firstborn from among the dead, so that He alone in everything and in every respect might occupy the chief place [stand first and be preeminent]. For it has pleased [the Father] that all the divine fullness (the sum total of the divine perfection, powers, and attributes) should dwell in Him permanently. (Colossians 1:15-19)
Everything that exists does so because the Word that was made flesh brought it forth. If the Universe and all that is in it was created by the Word (revealed in material form as the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ), who would be greater?

Maybe an atheist who denies Lord Jesus Christ might be greater than Him because the atheist has chosen to reject the Lord of Life. This is the power of freewill. Freewill enables people to be greater than the Lord of Life, because the possessor has the power to deny Him.

But other than anyone being able to deny Lord Jesus Christ, there is no one coming after Him who is greater.

Ironically, in order to assert power over God, one has to suffer eternal separation from the source of life and all that goes to making life worthwhile. And people like to think those who deny the Creator as bright—more like brightness of lightning or falling stars, really.

.THE MYTH OF GENESIS BROUGHT TO THE FORE: DID GOD SAY TO EVE, ‘YOU SHALL NOT EAT OF ANY TREE OF THE GARDEN?” Or did Adam Tell Eve That She Was Not To Eat Of The Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil? From what the Bible states, God did tell Adam not to of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

When people ask for someone to explain why a historical figure did something, and the person did not know the historical figure, one wonders whether the questioner is expecting a lie. It is nigh impossible to explain why everybody living does what they do, let alone someone who has been dead for over five thousand years.

While I do not know why Eve, when speaking of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, also said “neither shall you touch it, lest you die.” But the inclusion of this prohibition suggests that the possibility of touching the tree may have been discussed, and indicates that curiosity had been aroused as to why they were not to eat from the tree. Seems like Eve was fertile ground to sow the seed of doubt and deceit.
  • Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree of the garden’?” And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden; but God said, ‘You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.’” (Genesis 3:1-3)
  • The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die.”(Genesis 2:15-17)
An interesting parallel is found when Moses was instructed to speak to the rock, but he touched it with the rod when he struck it.
  • The Lord said to Moses, “Take the rod, and assemble the congregation, you and Aaron your brother, and tell the rock before their eyes to yield its water; so you shall bring water out of the rock for them; so you shall give drink to the congregation and their cattle.” And Moses took the rod from before the Lord, as he commanded him. (Numbers 20:7–9)
  • And Moses lifted up his hand and struck the rock with his rod twice; and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their cattle. And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe in me, to sanctify me in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them.” (Numbers 20:11-12)
Evidently having faith in God means believing that He will keep His Word. Humans tend towards faithlessness. Unfortunately, being faithful all the time is difficult for humans to grasp. But God is faithful, all the time. There is an inheritance available for all who claim it now. The judgment that comes upon those who fail to claim their eternal inheritance is their own doing. Just as Moses struck what he was not ordered to do and Eve ate what was prohibited, so, too, people will be held accountable for every careless word spoken. (Romans 3:19 Matthew 12:36)

To answer your question, nothing that I know in the Gospel of Mark is demonstrably false.
Actually, since people have to rely upon witnesses in a court of law to determine truth, the question to ask is How many people who claim that the Gospel of Mark is demonstrably false tell lies?

If a person is a liar, they eventually believe their own excrement. So why would you trust them? If a person is a liar, can that person’s word be taken as gospel?

Personally, only demonstrable evidence is acceptable. This has to be something that is proven in the now, not some theory about what happened 100 years ago, or billions of years ago. People who believe nonsense about anything without demonstrating in the now that their theory is true, can regurgitate as much as they like, they are ones on the nose. They have no hope and can provide no hope.
But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumph, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of him everywhere. For we are the aroma of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things?
(2 Corinthians 2:14-16)
The Apostle Paul was a murderous Jew seeking to kill Christians, but instead of being filled with hatred and being on the nose, having encountered Lord Jesus Christ, he became a fragrance of life to life to those who responded to his testimony.
Now those who were with me saw the light but did not hear the voice of the one who was speaking to me. And I said, ‘What shall I do, Lord?’ And the Lord said to me, ‘Rise, and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all that is appointed for you to do.’ And when I could not see because of the brightness of that light, I was led by the hand by those who were with me, and came into Damascus.
“And one Anani′as, a devout man according to the law, well spoken of by all the Jews who lived there, came to me, and standing by me said to me, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight.’ And in that very hour I received my sight and saw him. And he said, ‘The God of our fathers appointed you to know his will, to see the Just One and to hear a voice from his mouth; for you will be a witness for him to all men of what you have seen and heard. And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on his name.’
“When I had returned to Jerusalem and was praying in the temple, I fell into a trance and saw him saying to me, ‘Make haste and get quickly out of Jerusalem, because they will not accept your testimony about me.’ And I said, ‘Lord, they themselves know that in every synagogue I imprisoned and beat those who believed in thee. And when the blood of Stephen thy witness was shed, I also was standing by and approving, and keeping the garments of those who killed him.’ And he said to me, ‘Depart; for I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’”
(Acts 22:9-21 )
Likewise, since I encountered Lord Jesus Christ, the joy of salvation has not departed from within me (cf. Psalm 51:12). For me, this is evidence that I have found the truth. Prior to my encounter with Lord Jesus Christ (which like any encounter, has been and gone) I did not have the assurance that I now possess.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF JESUS SPENDING FORTY DAYS IN THE WILDERNESS IS NOT LOST ON EVERYONE, EVEN IF PEOPLE WONDER WHY HE DID NOT SPEND THE TIME IN THE CARIBBEAN OR THE RUSSIAN FORESTS. Imagine If Jesus Spent Forty Days On The Moon, Then That Would Really Have Issued A Challenge To The Unbelievers Of The Truth Who Seek An Man From Outer Space. Jesus became a man so that he could experience what it is like to live as a human and be tempted as a human.

Specifically you seek to know whether there is any significance about Jesus being driven into the wilderness. Coincidentally, Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness and the Hebrews spent forty years in the wilderness.
  • Your children shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your prostitution, until your dead bodies are consumed in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which you spied out the land, even forty days, for every day a year, you will bear your iniquities, even forty years, and you will know my alienation. (Numbers 14:33-34)
The Hebrews spied out the land that they were promised for forty days but came back suffering from unbelief. Jesus was taken into the wilderness for forty days and came back preaching the Kingdom of God, only unable to perform miracles and healings for people when they manifested unbelief. (Matthew 13:58) In fact, Jesus found it difficult to comprehend people’s unbelief.
  • And he marveled because of their unbelief. And he went about among the villages teaching. (Mark 6:6)
Interestingly, according to the Covenant made with Moses, the high priest had to take a goat on the Day of Atonement and send it out into the wilderness.
  • He shall take the two goats, and set them before Yahweh at the door of the Tent of Meeting. Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats; one lot for Yahweh, and the other lot for the scapegoat. Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for Yahweh, and offer him for a sin offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell for the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before Yahweh, to make atonement for him, to send him away for the scapegoat into the wilderness. (Leviticus 16:7-10)
Implicit in the idea of the goat being sent into the wilderness, away from the people, is the idea that the judgment of sin that the Devil would lay upon people, God will take upon Himself. After taking the judgment of sin upon Himself, God will cast it, along with the Devil, who created sin in the first place, away into the outer darkness; a wilderness where there is nothing of worth.

Jesus went into the wilderness and was tested to see if he would succumb to the wiles of the Devil when weak and vulnerable, after forty days of fasting without food.

Tolstoy Famous For His Epic Novel "War And Peace" Appears To Have Been Having A Spiritual War Of His Own That Does Not Appear To Have Ended In Peace. The peace that is given of the Son of God is not the peace that is found by those who side with what is found in this world or its flawed reasoning.

If Tolstoy said that, he obviously did not feel that he possessed sufficient reason to find out whether Jesus rose from the dead. Many people do no possess sufficient reason to find out whether Jesus rose from the dead. Mostly this is because of their own conceit and pride.

 Ellen Myers in The "Conversion" of Leo Tolstoy states:
Tolstoy's Confession shows that he was in no way converted away from his own self, certainly not to the sovereign, transcendent ("other-than-self") Creator and Redeemer of the Bible whom he rejected with all his heart, soul, mind, and strength Instead, he was "converted" from periodical to full-time, singleminded dedication to his own self and its moral perfection by his own efforts In that self-willed "goodness" without the grace of God he could not but fail, and did fail. "All things work for harm to them that do not love God," a paraphrase of Romans 8:28, which is borne out by his unconverted later life.

When I sought to know Jesus, after a harrowing experience that culminated in my stating the reasons why I ought to know Him, Jesus appeared to me.

Many people have wandered into my acquaintance, whom I have forgotten; people who did not have a significant affect upon me. Actually, some people have said that they have met me and I did not remember them. There are people of whom I could say that I met, but there is no proof that we ever did meet. Like ships in the night, we were going our own ways.

The difference between my meeting Jesus and my meeting other people is my life changed as a result. Not only that, I received an assurance that I possess an abiding relationship. The emotion of joy was placed within me. That joy has never left since I met the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus rose from the dead. Those who meet the criteria that Lord Jesus Christ has for revealing Himself to them, enter into an abiding relationship with Him. The Bible states in numerous places that Lord Jesus searches the hearts of everyone to see whether they are acceptable to Him (Revelation 2:23; Romans 8:27; Hebrews 4:12-13)

The problem for everyone of us is that we can scoff at people saying that they have met the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ, but if we have not met Him ourselves, we are the ones who are the losers. Analogous to this is someone, who has access to the most powerful person in the land, stating his position and we scoff in disbelief. Why? Because we do not possess any access. In which case, we are the losers. Why be a loser when you can be a winner, unless you are a masochist and enjoy pain—but the agony that produces eternal wailing and gnashing of teeth is not something people are going to enjoy. Reality is always knocking at our door.

SIN IS AN ACTION THAT MANY PEOPLE UNDERSTAND BUT WHEN IT COMES TO THE ATTITUDES OF THE HEART AND THE THOUGHTS OF THE MIND, NOT EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS SIN. What Many People Do Not Understand Is Whether They Have Sinned Or Not Because Of The Thoughts They May Have Had, Even Though Some Would Definitely Say They Have Sinful Thoughts. When it comes to sinning and losing forgiveness, some people think they can sin as much as they like and it does not matter because they have claimed salvation through Lord Jesus Christ; however, they are in for a shock.

Sinning Christians may not be true Christians. To become a Christian one has to repent from dead works (which are sins) and exercise faith towards God (Hebrews 6:1) through Lord Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 3:15). If there is no repentance from sin, there is no faith exercised toward God.

A person who continues to sin and claims to be exercising faith in God is not really practicing what he is claiming to do. Honoring God with one’s lips (Mark 7:6) but not adhering to His law of righteousness from the heart (Hebrews 8:10) is tantamount to being condemned as a hypocrite and going to the place where there is gnashing of teeth (Matthew 24:51).
  • For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. (Hebrews 10:26-27)
  • For it is impossible, in the case of those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, and have shared in the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, to restore them again to repentance, since they are crucifying once again the Son of God to their own harm and holding him up to contempt. For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned. (Hebrews 6:4-8)
The prospects of salvation decrease if one decides to willfully sin, after having become a Christian, a partaker of the Holy Spirit and having tasted the goodness of the word of God. Putting Jesus on the cross again is to deny the reason He died in the first place, so that your sins can be forgiven and you can be empowered to walk in holiness by the Holy Spirit.
The emphasis is on willfulness to knowingly sin, not on finding yourself in a situation where your weakness gets the better of you, even though you would rather not sin, or where the mind is deceived. But apostasy is a reality. People can lose the salvation they may have at first sought, if they decide to willfully sin.

Unfortunately, there is an unbiblical teaching about being saved by grace alone, which rejects the truth that Bible teaches salvation is by faith. Salvation is never by grace alone, even though the grace of God permits salvation to be through faith, and more grace is extended to those who exercise faith.

Faith towards God requires repentance from dead works of sin and the willingness of the individual to walk in the ways of righteousness. Sin is the disregard of righteousness. Those who are righteous shall live by faith.
  • For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, “The righteous shall live by faith.” (Romans 1:17)
  • “But my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.” But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. (Hebrews 10:38-39)
Clearly, then, people can lose the prospects of salvation that they may have thought they had obtained, if they turn their back on Lord Jesus Christ and delight in sinning, rather than seeking the truth.

Salvation Is Not Lost By Those Who Are truly Repentant And Exercise Faith In God

FOLLOW YOUR HEART MAY BE GOOD ADVICE IF THIS INCLUDES FOLLOWING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS. Unless People Have Reasons To Follow A Given Doctrine, Set of Precepts Or Even A Person, Then No One Will Follow For Long. Like a dog following its nose, the person will sniff here and sniff there without any purpose or reason to do so, other than for the sake of having a smell.

If by the word “follow” you mean to accept the guidance of what are the only words written by the Finger of God, there are good reasons to acknowledge and comply with them.
  • I have seen a limit to all perfection, but your commands are boundless. (Psalm 119:96 WEB)
  • I have seen a limit to all perfection, but thy commandment is exceedingly broad. (Psalm 119:96 RSV)
Prohibition of murder, stealing, and bearing false witness, rather than telling the truth, has to be good guidance. Not to follow those injunctions is tantamount to hating oneself—revenge does not lead to a healthy life style.

Murder, stealing, and bearing false witness are only three of the Ten Commandments. The other seven commandments people tend to be ambivalent about.

Adultery has different definitions within various cultures that adhere to contrasting sexual mores. These cultures can be subcultures within a broader culture. Americana has many subcultures. Islam has different sects. Africa also has many tribal differences, not to mention what exists in South America and Asia.

In Thailand, lady-boys are acceptable. Afghanistan has its own lady-boys. In Islam and among African traditions, a man may have four wives at any time, but to have a fifth wife at the same time is considered adultery.

The Bible has a different take on adultery. God created man and woman to become the image of God. Anything outside of this becomes adultery and is prohibited if a society is to possess righteousness in relationships. This follows through into the nuclear family being the basis of society.

Honoring one’s parents is a directive from God. But if people are adulterous then children have no hope of inheriting the promise of God by honoring their parents. Instead, society will be permeated with evil desires, which originate from covetousness, that lead to adultery, jealousy, envy, hatred, murder, false witness and a disregard for God.

Instead of everybody being at peace and learning the advantages of resting in God’s provision, there is anxiety and unrest in the communities.

The Sabbath of Exodus exists for a different reason than the Sabbath of the Mosaic covenant found in the book of Deuteronomy (5:5-15). The Sabbath of Exodus is to be remembered and not observed, as is the case of the Sabbath of Deuteronomy. Nevertheless, both have to do with the Creator God.

However, in Exodus, although not explicit, the use of the word “remember”, in respect to the Sabbath, is an invitation for people to exercise their volition, consider why they are born to die, and seek to know the reason why.

The third, second and first commandments all point to a relationship with the Creator.

The reason people should accept the guidance of the Ten Commandments is that these are instructive in more ways than one and point not only to judgment for those who disregard them, but also salvation for those who take heed.

Not Content With Governmentally Recognized Unions That Carry All The Economic Rights Afforded Natural Heterosexual Marriages, But Intent On Bringing Civilization To Its Knees, Activists Want Total Control Over Human Affairs, And Will Stop At Nothing To Devalue The Sacred Nature Invested In The Union Of A Man And A Woman Being Declared Socially Sanctioned To Have The Right To Bring Forth Children From Their Unique Togetherness. Deceptively claiming equality, while discriminating against the rights of a man to cohabit with a woman with the aim of naturally reproducing the a new human being through the combination of DNA from the chromosomes imparted by the male and female, totalitarians instead would rather declare abhorrent ungodly anal sex between males and perverted female sexual activity to be normal natural behavior, as they attempt to break down the nuclear unit of the family; the nucleus of society, which provides the essential glue that holds civilization together.

In Australia the Same Sex Marriage Bill was passed into legislation on the 7th of December, 2017 and this has sent Bill Bonner into a state of convulsive shock. Expressing his thoughts on the very day that this travesty of human wisdom was passed by government fiat, Bonny Boy Bill vents his spleen and lets fly. He does not aim to create a mural of spotted walls or copy anything by Hoo Phlung Dhung.  But revulsed by the thought of human excrement being passed off as wisdom Billy Boy Bonner throws up.

Today Australia went down in infamy as the blackest day in political history since its foundation in 1788 as the so called leaders of this nation clowned around backslapping each other with self congratulatory smirks and applause amid cries of free love and more marriage as the Same Sex Marriage Bill was passed in Parliament under the banner of the rainbow a sign they hijacked from those that vehemently disagree with them. What a slap in the face of their Creator. All this to be progressive and keep pace with the rest of the world. What this really shows is Australian leadership, so called lacks moral fiber and originality of thought.

Turnbull, Shorten and all those in agreement with them in the Australian Parliament will be revealed and remembered in history as the worst representatives of the Australian people ever voted into Parliament. Oh I forgot Turnbull was not voted into government, he simply ousted the elected leader Tony Abbot, as is the want of politicians in this country. Howard did it to John Hewson, Keating did it to Hawke, Gillard did it to Rudd: all this without the approval of the Australian people. Of course they think they can because the Australian people by and large are politically apathetic and a nation deserves the turkeys that are served up to them. What a bunch of clowns; they don’t even know what nation they belong to. I hope Penny Wong doesn’t forget and accidentally returns to Malaysia.
She might end up on the end of a rope.

This is the type of leaders and leadership we have in our country. What a complete and utter joke.

Why should we celebrate Anzac Day any more? The fallen would be utterly ashamed of this generation and repentant that they gave their lives for this worthless lot. Why should we celebrate Christmas or Easter for that matter since it has become a mere hypocritical observance completely oblivious of everything that these celebrations signify.

While this circus was happening the true victims have been forgotten and overlooked; these are the young and yet unborn generations who will have to live with the horrendous implications of this hitherto untried sociological experiment, which can only end in disaster.

No clear thought has been given, no deep philosophical or theological effort has been undertaken to think ahead as to the terrible moral dilemmas that will face the generations yet unborn or of the rift that has been driven into the side of society to satisfy the immediate sensual gratifications of the morally bankrupt, whose agenda is to capsize society and leave it raped and pillaged of any moral worth, ultimately denying free speech and freedom of worship. This decision is the end of decent society and God will make those that did this thing pay and pay they will. God’s judgment is now on this nation. God help us all!

 There Is More To Life Than Being Born To Be A Beast

THE EVIL LEADER OUGHT TO HAVE A NAME THAT IS BEFITTING HIS ACTUAL CHARACTER AND NOT ONE THAT IS MISLEADING. There Is No Point In Attributting A Good Name To A Person Who Is Really The Devil Incarnate. Some people think words do not really matter and in some respects they are right, but this depends upon what the words spoken mean to the one who is hearing them.

The word “devil” is used to represent evil, except by those who say that evil is good. Those who say that evil is good, would say that good is evil.

The word “evil” means whatever you define it to be. Words always mean what you define them to be.

However, if those to whom you are speaking do not understand the words that you are using, you are probably not speaking their language. So if you want to communicate anything to someone, you have to find out what language they speak, so they will understand you. Therefore if a person defines, evil as good, that person is not going understand what you mean when you speak about that evil devil—especially, if you do not mean that he is a good devil.

Hot Stuff comics are about a little devil. But a good little devil does not exist, except if you like little devils who create mayhem in your life. Hot Stuff is just good at being a little devil.

Actually, there are many people who were fond of Hot Stuff comics. If they knew the truth, they would not be so fond of the heat; especially, when the greatest evil of all time would have to be the absence of water to cool parched lips. Hydration is essential to prevent one’s blood drying up.
  • On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” (John 7:37-38)
  • The Samaritan woman said to him, “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaria?” (For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is that is saying to you, ‘Give me a drink,’ you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” The woman said to him, “Sir, you have nothing to draw water with, and the well is deep. Where do you get that living water? (John 4:9-11)
Sadistic evil leaders are said to be men like Idi Amin, a murderous and erratic sadistic ruler of Uganda in the 70's. But the politically correct say that idi Amin’s atrocities are okay, because according to the New York Times “those murdered were mostly anonymous people”.

Vlad The Impaler impaled 20,000 people and raised them on poles—because he liked to hear the screaming (?). His descendants actually think that the Earth is over-populated.
Once the atrocities of individuals such as Idi Amin and Vlad The Impaler are described, you can use their names to represent an archetype of evil—metonymy.

Instead of saying, “He’s evil,” you can say, “He’s Vlad The Impaler,” or, “He’s Idi Amin.”

Some people think that the Creator God is evil because the Bible states those who love evil and reject the truth are going to spend eternity wailing and gnashing their teeth. Such people do not understand that injustice is evil, but justice is good.

Words are about definitions. When people understand the definitions, then you can terrorize them with words. This is why many people who have been programmed to understand the meaning of certain words are terrified when you use speech that is not politically correct, but think nothing of seeing a person being beheaded or a young boy or girl being raped by an unwashed grub with a runny nose, flyblown ears and suffering from a dose of gonorrhea. The politically correct “indoctrinates” do not understand evil actions and their consequences, only the definitions that they think are evil.

[The word “indoctrinates” is used as a noun to identify people who have been indoctrinated into an ideology or programmed to accept a certain viewpoint as correct—in this case, political correctness.]
