Random Thoughts Which Crossed My Mind

Words must mean something definite and understandable or they serve no meaningful purpose.  A liar voids his right to expect a serious conversation with anyone.

On Evolution

The illogical theory that the huge variety of vegetation, animal life, soil content, a habitable atmosphere and the marvelous functionality of Earth and of human biology, and the fantastic content and efficiency of the infinite universe .... just accidentally happened, without intelligent design, is unbelievably ignorant and inexcusable. "For the invisible things of him (God) from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even  his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse...." Rom.1:20.

On Repentance 

The surest cure for lust and sin is fear, pain, sickness, death and love. The Law, rules, intimidation and societal expectations are not nearly so preventive of evil. If neither Christ's death for you nor God's judgement upon you do not reach you ... you are hopeless."....strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world...." Eph.2:12.

On The Sin Of Lucifer 

Blasphemy is when the Spirit of God convinces a soul that God is God, and yet that created soul still reviles, speaks and fights against God when they know He IS God. Lucifer committed this unpardonable sin. Since He could not hit, hurt or hinder God's person, he resorted to all he could do. He conspired, influenced and otherwise spoke evil against God. See Isaiah 14 and Ezek. 28.

On Deserving Salvation

If you did not deserve salvation when you got it, you cannot lose it when you still do not deserve it. If you think you did deserve salvation by your good works, you are not even saved at all."Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost...." Titus 3:5.

On Eternal Life

If you can think beyond the present, and believe what has to be true, though unfathomable, you can be guaranteed, without question, eternal life by resting your faith, hope and love in Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sin and everlasting life."Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ...."  Acts 16:31.

On Calling A Thing What It Is

Isaiah 32:5 "The vile person shall be no more called liberal." RB

On Lies, Falsehoods And Truth

If a person is incorrect in what he says, but thinks it is true, it is not a lie but a falsehood. But, if he knows it is false and tells it as the truth, he is lying. If a person is correct in what he says, but thinks it is a lie, it is not a falsehood but a lie ... because he thought he was lying, but told it anyway. Our God is not picky about small things. He is not looking for some minor mistake of yours to slap you around. Probably everyone exaggerates the truth, in some small degree, from time to time to make an

unimportant event more interesting ... and is therefore lying, but I doubt that God puts that in the
same category with lies which destroy lives, homes, friendships, reputations and even nations. RB

On Socialism's Greed

Gallant sacrifice and heroic action are so contrary to normal human nature as to demand recognition, appreciation and commendation from the rest of us... not envy, greed or criticism.
"And ... as (Jesus) sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious, and she brake the box and poured it on his head.  And there were some that had indignation within themselves and said, Why was this waste of the ointment made? For it might have been sold for more than three hundred pence and have been given to the poor. And they murmured against her. And Jesus said, Let her alone; why trouble ye her? she hath wrought a good work on me. For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good: but me ye have not always." Mk.14:3-7. Judas was obviously a Socialist.
