Off topic, but…My small, quiet voice within has spoken and it said "this guy is a self-indulgent ass." Some people use religion like a drug, to shut out the world and its problems and the need to fix them. It is the ultimate cop-out, the consummate drop-out, the supreme denial of responsibility, all with the imagined blessing of God.
When you get down to the nitty gritty it isn’t about the fraud in the White House, it isn’t about increasing the debt ceiling, it isn’t about obamacare, it isn’t about the gop’s 2012 presidential candidate, it isn’t about the TEA party, it isn’t about rising gas and food prices, it isn’t about homosexual marriage, it isn’t about American Idol or who wins dancing with the stars or who gets thrown off a make-believe-island, it isn’t about the NBA playoffs, it isn’t about the 2012 NFL season, it isn’t about Putin, it isn’t about China, it isn’t about Imadingdong, it isn’t about BHO getting OBL, it isn’t about oil, it isn’t about Turkey going over to the dark side, it isn’t about the United Nations, it isn’t about what the Palestinians want, it sure isn’t about allah.
It’s about the God of the Holy Bible.
After 50 plus years of pursuing the pleasures of the flesh and caring about this world, I, for reasons I can’t explain, actually picked the bible up and read it. I mean, I really read it and continue to do so…at 20 AM when I can’t sleep…read a chapter or two when I’m brewing coffee before going to work…read a couple of chapters during lunch….read all of Matthew and other books on Saturday morning. Then repeat.
My conclusion: what a kick in the teeth. If the bible is a fake then nothing to worry about. If it’s real then hang on, because we are in the biblical end-time and things are going to get interesting.
My advice is to listen to that little, quiet, easy to ignore, voice inside you.
Left the barn door open? It's not about losing your horse...it's about God. Kids playing on the freeway? No problem, just read another chapter in the Bible. Wolf at the door? Just open the door and beat the beast senseless with a large volume of the Bible. Or quote scripture at him until he dies of boredom.
Here's a better thought, JD: God helps those who help themselves.
