The Blind Are Leading The Blind
I AM a Christian.......I believe that God is the Creator, Jesus is His Son, who died upon the cross, to redeem sinners like me, and .......then HE lived again. Please, let us be clear about that............
What I am NOT...... perfect, ( please keep that point in mind) a scholar, educated in theology, ( though I am self learned), a pastor, a preacher, a minister or any other high ranking official. I am merely a person who can learn and despite the positions of some, I can read.
The Bible has been written, it is a finished work. It is done.......we do not need to add anything.
Yes, I do watch the History Channel, I am aware of the "forbidden books", the " lost chapters", the newly found lost 'scrolls", yes, I do have some sort of intelligence and awareness.
Dan Brown, although he is an engaging and talented man, is a FICTIONAL writer. The " Left Behind" series, ( I have all volumes) are in effect, a " what if", a "could be" narrative..........they are NOT gospel.
As a child in her formative years, my Grandfather, who had the wisdom of Solomon and the patience of Job........(can you imagine that character), was a hard taskmaster, he often said to me, over the " homework lessons " what do you think" and, " what is your best judgement" ?
My wise Grandpa did not give me easy answers........oh, no, he was hard, he made me think! Imagine that.. ..(you have been called a " sheeple", you have been accused of being " indoctrinated")............but my Grandpa, made me THINK for myself. Some might call him cruel, I call him................ missed.
If you wish to know:
who is God
what does God say
how does God feel about, gambling, drinking, homosexuality, forgiveness, your neighbor, conducting your business, rearing your children, the value of age and experience, your grandchildren, honor, war, need, fellowship, the Sabbath, tithing, marriage, death, life, hell, Heaven, other gods, witchcraft, sorcery, healing, food, the occult .............I can only assist you in those verses which apply........believing, and faith are up to you.
and all the other things that we delight in debating, just simply.....ASK GOD.........read His words, pray to Him, study........trust in a confidant., but exercise caution and good sense in choosing that person.........the world is full of "false leaders" and " wolves in sheep's clothing".
I encourage you to have a friend, to have a source of information, but take caution, to not be confused.
But please..... do not follow the blind, they come down every single pike.
If you are merely curious, if you are at a crossroads, if you are confused, if you are searching..........do not ask me, do not ask other blinded people.......ASK GOD......He has given you a direct line where He can be reached.
Do not ask me to speak against the Catholic, the Protestant, the Mormon, the AME, the Church of Christ, the Latter Day Saints, the xyb church........just do not ask me to speak against a fellow believer of Christ who is God's own Son. The fine print, the misunderstood is simply not worth the heartache, either for me or my fellow believer of God. I can not build up one brother by tearing another brother down....it is a mathematical impossibility. Just do not ask it of me, and do not ask it of my brother or sister.
Speaking against a fellow believer is the utmost worst example that we can give.
Ask God about that!
The single best piece of advice that I can give you is............to Listen when He speaks.
