Burning the fields

Imagine you had a field of over 1 billion different types of plants. Now imagine that, within those billion plus plants lay the cure for cancer. The cure for Alzheimer’s. The cure for blindness, for lupus, for any number of diseases. All that need be done is for those plants to be harvested and processed.

Now image that someone came along and torched the entire thing. Every plant, every root, every square inch of this miracle field, gone. Reduced to ash.

Imagine the outcry. The anger. The sadness not just in yourself, but world wide, as people came to the realization of the lost potential in that massive bed of plants.

Embracing the “Adult Film Star” Mindset. (semi-NSFW)

What is so offensive about sex to Christians? I mean, they obviously have it, seeing as how they have children. God blessed us with the act and tasked us with partaking in it to “be fruitful and multiply”. The act creates marriage between a man and a woman, and men are told to let their wives bodies satisfy them at all times.

In the bible, Song of Solomon goes a step further and gets into some gritty details about how to enjoy your spouses bodies! I’ve read before that younger men weren’t even allowed to look into the book until they reached a proper age it was considered so graphic! Even by todays standards its not exactly bible study discussion material!

A Simple Test.

If, as a Christian, you cannot agree to the idea of letting any number of people, whom you don’t know nor are allowed to question, into your home to consume your food, water and resources, then you have no legs to stand on in your insistence that the God of bible commands that a nation let uncontrolled hordes of “immigrants” pour in through open and unchecked borders. There is simply no biblical basis for it.

Funny how, when it doesn’t seem to directly affect them, something like letting people you don’t know in to consume your stuff seems like an awful invasion of privacy. I wonder how many Christians would be willing to let their pastor assign them a live in immigrant, without their permission, without any kind of information on said immigrant and without any type of additional support. Now how about two immigrants, or ten?

How many Christians pull up a chair and a make a sandwich for the thief who has just broken into their house in the middle of the night? “Hey, it’s fine, God said we should invite EVERYONE in! I make enough money, I can share. And I’m sure your only breaking into my house in the dead of night because you want a better life for yourself.” I don’t see it happening, so why are so many Christians on board with allowing it to happen to our nation?

I have no doubt that God works in mysterious ways and, who knows, maybe He will prompt you to speak to that thief in the middle of the night, but you had better make darn sure that’s the voice of God talking to you, because most thieves willing to break into someone’s home are up to no good.

Promise Month

Sick and tired of “Pride month” and LGBQUTVWOSIENNDIFOQLEQ(#($*@KKDDL recognition I propose we make the upcoming month of July “Promise Month” in which we Christians promote the goodwill and love of our heavenly father in that He made to us a promise that he would never again flood the earth, destroying nearly everyone and everything due to mankind’s wickedness. To really push the point home we can point out how, were this promise not in place, right now would probably be a point in history in which God would be totally justified in doing so, but by His grace and love He won’t.

We should all feel so blessed.

Genesis 9:

Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him: “I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you 10 and with every living creature that was with you—the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you—every living creature on earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”

Dissidia articles updated (or, WordPress is ignoring me, so here’s my workaround).

WordPress hasn’t fixed the problem with embedding OneDrive videos into pages, which was working before, then got broken and remains broken even after I contacted them. They told me they would look into the problem then locked the support post so no one can ask questions. That was several months ago.

The posts Great Games: Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy and 10 Reasons Dissidia 012 is the Greatest Fighting Game Ever (That You Have Probably Never Played)! have been updated so that their embedded videos no longer take you away from the page before you can read it. Instead you must click on the images to go to the OneDrive page to view them.

Why don’t I switch to YouTube? I don’t want to, that’s why. I’m tired of having a dozen logins when I can do everything from a single site, but WP doesn’t want to play nice with videos anymore. I will have to find the other posts that have similar embedded videos from OneDrive and fix those too.

Carry on.

Don’t be this person

So the other day I had an interesting back-and-forth in the comments section of another blog. The subject of the post was regarding church discipline, of which I do not believe churches apply very often or very well (at least none of the churches I have ever attended). Personally I think churches need to be more straightforward in letting their congregation know that one of it’s jobs is to administer discipline with regards to those who are engaging in a sinful lifestyle, as prescribed in scripture:

Matthew 18:

15 Moreover if thy brother shall trespass against thee, go and tell him his fault between thee and him alone: if he shall hear thee, thou hast gained thy brother.

16 But if he will not hear thee, then take with thee one or two more, that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.

17 And if he shall neglect to hear them, tell it unto the church: but if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.
