“Liberalism”

Book of Instructions for life

Genesis 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

According to the Oxford dictionary, one of the definitions of the word ‘liberal’ is; Regarding many traditional beliefs as dispensable, invalidated by modern thought, or liable to change.

In other words, ones own interpretation of a given ‘norm’ of understood reality is up to ones own desires in any given circumstance of life. I guess it could also be stated as ‘doing it my own way’ regardless of the established norm. Now, if enough people agree with that particular interpretation, it becomes the new norm of society. It does not change the result of those changes in thinking or regulations in the Creators eyes.

As I see it, if enough people want to call abortion a normal way of life, it becomes the accepted normal way of life. Thus, for example if a woman desires to have (sex) sexual intercourse outside of marriage or even outside of the confines of the marriage bed, it is OK and then if a child is the result of that union, it (the child) can be murdered to rid one of the responsibility of that former sexual pleasure, it is just OK. That is liberalism.

What happens in liberalism is that any law of right or wrong becomes the definition of the person or persons involved rather that a given law from either a government or even the Creator of all there is.

This my friends is only one example of what happened in the days of Noah. We must face the fact that the end is near.

“Designer”

designer-01

1 Corinthians 11:12  For as the woman originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originate from God.

I was sitting on the bus a little while ago and as I traveled home, I was looking at the faces of all the people that surrounded me. I had the thought that I just wanted to share; every person on this planet looks different than every other person on this planet, even twins will have some small insignificant difference that may not be noticeable. It is much like snowflakes, as they fall from the sky, they all look pretty much the same but when put to the test, they are all different yet the same. It is the design of the designer who has a mind that outshines even the best of us. This Creator Designer is beyond awesome. And then you take these seven billion people and if you examined their lives and what they think, you would find seventy times seventy billion differences.

Every person on this planet is unique, and the God of creation has designed each one for a different purpose. Because He, the Designer, has given each one free will, we do not see a perfect world. There are billions who have decided to follow the broad road of self-determination that leads to destruction. It is a bit like building a house without looking at the blueprint.

The Creator wants all of us to enjoy what He has in store for us in His Kingdom but along the way, we must follow the road laid out that leads there. There is only one road that leads across the great divide and on all other roads, the bridge is out. Yeshua (Jesus) is the only way, He said so Himself when He came to earth to instruct and save us; John 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”  The Bible has made it quite clear that He wants all of us to come to Him for that peace, love and eternal rest.

“Question”

Stardusted Moon

“Why is it so difficult to believe in a God of Creation rather than the Darwin theory or the proverbial ‘Big Bang’ theory? Or, we can just accept anything else that sounds good and plausible to us. Then maybe we can believe in anything that gives us credibility and follows whatever sort of idea we have come up with for this life that we live. As a true believer in this God of Creation I thought about this for a minute or two and as I look around at all that seems to be happening in the world and how dark it is becoming, I realized it is because believing in a God of Creation causes us to become accountable for our actions. Romans 3:19 Now we know that whatever the Law says, it speaks to those who are under the Law, so that every mouth may be closed and all the world may become accountable to God; The majority do not want to be accountable to anything but ourselves. Just look at some of the statements being made today, “If it feels good, do it” or from a few years ago, “What, me worry”.

Unfortunately for those who hold that understanding, this God of Creation has authored a book which sets out some do’s and don’ts and there consequences. Oops, that puts us under a yoke of accountability as we can no longer just go our merry way doing whatever we want to do without accepting the consequences. We are back to my statements about seed-time and harvest and whatever you plant you shall reap. There is that terrible accountability again. The people during Noah’s day had the same outcome. We must face the truth of His word, if we are not following the Creators understanding, we shall reap our just rewards.

That’s my thought for today…
