What follows is an answer to a question about following The Ten Commandments as the Golden Code verses Avoidance of the Seven Deadly Sins, which I responded to without hesitation. In drawing this in a sense, battle line for debate, between theology and atheism, or magic and religion, I actually saw no comparison or Nothing to debate being a devout Christian with an absolute belief in Jesus Christ I have no difficulty in seeing that atheism is a dead topic with nothing from which to base the conjecture that there is no God and everything just is! Sounds like a liberal out of their minds way of avoiding the truth, where facts and truth are constantly denied, whether in politics or reality. To me deniers are scoffers of God and with great arrogance toss the Creator aside and say I see it my way!
Let’s start with that premise of some supposed battle between theology and atheism and cut to the chase, shall we. There is no battle to be had, nothing and no one can lay claim to what Jesus Christ said and did!
I wrote many times these words that truly resonate with the absolute truth although in the end faith and humility are required of all who seek the heavenly kingdom.
But, ultimately after all is said and done all we have is our Faith in Him, because we are truly in His hands, lambs ready for the slaughter living in the world with its corruption but knowing He will never forsake us if we are living in accordance to His word and will for us, I do trust Him with all.
You are better to take one side or the other, to say you confess that Jesus is whom he was said to be the MESSIAH, or he is not, but this lukewarm nonsense is a travesty and that is something God says in the “living words of the Scriptures,” that He would rather we take one side or the other but not to be lukewarm! Again, I say this one fundamental truth to you and anyone listening, no other human being on this earth ever did or could lay claim to what Jesus Christ did and who he said He was! It is historical fact not maybe or supposes! He was the “Sacrificial Lamb for all Mankind,” in order to take away all man’s sins and cleanse all who accept this GIFT in order that they will be worthy to be in “Gods perfect Holy presence in heaven eternally!” No other way is available, Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life!”
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life, no one doth come unto the Father, if not through me.” John 14:6
God cannot be any more clear cut than that, He has spoken and told us in no uncertain terms that Jesus is the only way to heaven and all else fails but will bring eternal damnation! Simple choice for we simple earthly fools some with huge egos and arrogant ways, thinking they are powerful like sorcerers and witches! They got diddly-squat and will rot in hell for eternity!
Here you answer your own cause with the dilemma, and proves itself an oxymoron with no final answer other than you try as a mere human to come up with this “code” you will chase your own tail into oblivion no doubt!
Here I state in my own words how the person posing this debate is seeking to have people develop a code to live by that would produce great humans that would be always kind and good to each other along with the environment. But, also admitted how in any human devised system there is bound to be corruption, imperfections and discord; leading to major problems.
But, the idea that follows, this takes the cake as being a wild little twist on an ultimate truth handed to us humans from the supernatural Creator to bear in mind and heart, as to what the Divinity of God is and in words for our limited imperfect understanding; being that we are all sinful and hopeless without His plan of resurrection.
Then, there was this one statement made about not believing in Wiccan Power of Three referencing by these words; father, the sun and holy ghost as having religiosity at its core, which apparently like Wiccan to some people is nothing but flights of fancy and make believe. There is no equating the Blessed Trinity with Wiccan! Here is where my own heart and lifetime wisdom through Jesus Christ speaks.
Maybe the Druids or Wiccans and Mayans like the word “sun” but God only speaks about His only begotten Son which is God as a perfect T man, having nothing to do with the sun that heats the solar system. The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost as the One true God Almighty who reconciled all imperfection by means of His absolute perfection! Free Will had to exist in God’s Creation in order to have a family of beings or children made in His likeness. With this Free Will came the opportunity to do God’s will following His teaching or to sin and transgress Him. This was and is a perfect plan as to allow each soul to decide for itself out of love for God which God is absolute love, that these souls or children of God would have their own individual minds making each special and not just carbon copies or robots. They could then grow and be living in God’s eternal kingdom, in the presence of God and in a state of perfection with God.
A great scientist even touched upon this, from the genius mind in science of his work in theoretical physics which points out that this genius much brighter than most of us admitted God is real and perfect without doubt or hesitation.
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
I also wrote recently and quoted Albert again in his one profound statement to another physicist that speaks volumes! Follow my text to the one grandiose sentence he spoke.
I also see the deepest intrinsic value in every speck of existence as miraculous and having qualities that are not random or meaningless or having come into such balance and order by chance or random sequential events taking place at some special by happenstance moment, as I also don’t see how it all has always been as it is with no beginning or end, as we observe readily all is changing and disintegrating in this realm! Scientists know for certain and have demonstrated the “Big Bang” theory, but so too persons like the great Albert Einstein who by far one of the most extraordinary minds to have even been here on earth, told fellow physicists when having a discussion about the millisecond prior to the “Big Bang;” when one of the scientists extrapolated with all of his calculations that with enough “random events” occurring just before that “golden moment” when creation took place or the “Big Beginning,” as I call it, this scientist said these events would surely fall into the precise order required for that golden moment to take place.
Then Einstein said, “Ah, Yes my friend but you’re forgetting one thing, God doesn’t roll dice!”
You see he knew that a creating power that vast and intelligent would undoubtedly be deliberate and intentional in all of its actions by the sheer fact of knowing all things that would by default make “each action perfect and precisely what it was meant to be” or the only thing it can be; never a mistake! My point to you and all followers here is that the mathematical probability that all of this unbelievable existence to have come into being by some unknown yet perfect event happening by chance is basically mathematically impossible, especially when one looks at and examines closely the incredible intricacies of every bit of existence down to the atom to not see clearly that a vast intelligence is at work in all of this; which is far beyond our little puny minds or almost insignificant meaningless opinions when stacked up against what is really going on here! You and I know basically nothing in comparison and to think otherwise is complete folly and I dare say stupidity on our parts if we are to think so highly of ourselves! We only have what God has given to us and there is obviously a plan or imagination at work that will have the final say in everything here, no if’s and’s or but’s about it! Rest assured you are part of God’s plan, but our biggest task is to recognize that, and appreciate the opportunity sitting on our laps, while then giving due respect and love back to our Creator because that was the only reason all of this began, was out of “His infinite love.” We step outside of this plan or design attempting to make ourselves our own God, then we transgress the “OLD ONE,” as Einstein referred to him. That would be quite asinine to do don’t you think?
I concluded with this:
Just this fact, that we can think as we attempt to comprehend and make these observations is obviously a miracle and gift from the “Divine Creator” of all things, which plainly tells us that we are meant to see, recognize and understand these basics, then to let our conscience and heart be our guide, which will lead us to Him in Love and Peace beyond measure, far beyond our present limited understanding. As Holy Scriptures have told us, “Seek and you will find.”
7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
Lord have mercy. Amen.
