wish they used such methods ot teach principles in school then it wouldnt of sucked like it did.

christendom indicted

howdy gang, or shall I say fellow living souls on the land, or maybe living on terra or the place called earth, language is a funny thing don’t you think? This past few days I have been doing research on the book of isaiah, reading it and getting more information about it, came across some fitting information that fits our day perfectly. Isaiahs day mirrors our day almost perfectly. How? well he prophesized during the time of Uzziah,Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, which was a good king.

Little backround, he prophesized during a time of political unrest, religous hypocrisy, judicial corruption and oppression of the poor. Even during reigns of faithful kings like Jotham alters of false gods could still be seen on many hilltops. (does this description ring a bell with anyone? lol) Under unfaithful kings the situation was even worse. Can you imagine what life was like then and how one could manage to avoid being eaten (figuratively) and still manage a fairly decent life? The international situation was gloomy too, (kind of reminescent of today don’t you think?) Moab, Edom and philista stood meanacing at Judahs borders. Hum, iraq or syria anyone? humm I have heard how technology has made the earth a small place, makes sense.

Furthur north syria threatened Judahs peace and cruel Assyria was on the lookout to expand its power, it had taken the northern nation of isreal in Isaiahs time, and almost destroyed Judah. Jerusalum was like the last stand for the Isrealites as a nation. Assyria was the second world power of bible history, even tho there were other world powers the bible focused only on those that affected God’s chosen people, his worshippers.

The situation in Isaiahs time is very similar to conditions today, in our time human leaders have turned their backs on Jehovah and his enthroned King Jesus Christ, (speaking of those in christendom) in fact they have turned thier backs on the bible period, it’s principles and laws and truths. The leader of Christendom have deceived their flocks, such leaders claim to serve God but in truth most of them promote the gods of the world. (enviromentalism? capitalism? Communism?sunlike leaders?sports stars?promoinent individuals? Philosphers? Science? Self? United nations? Money? Entertainment? etc) In one place after another Christendom religion has been involved in wars and civil strife that features ethnic cleansing and other horrors. Rather than take a stand for bible morality many chruches are either winking at or actively supporting immoral practices like fornication (just watch the movies on tv and see what I mean) and homosexuality. 

 Isaiah 1:4: “woe to the sinful nation the people heavy with error and evildoing seed ruinous sons, they have left Jehovah they have treated the Holy One of Isreal with disrespect they have turned backwards.”

Things were so bad Jehovah gave furthur descriptions of how he viewed them, Isa 1:10: “Hear the word of Jehovah you dictators of Sodom give ear to the law of our God you people of gomorrah.” The Isrealites were doing so many detestable things, you can read it yourself in the rest of these beginning chapters. in fact He told them he was tired of their festivels and sacrifices, their prayers, that their hands were full of blood shed, but vs 16 and 17 tells them what is required to get redeemed, “Wash yourselves and make yourselves clean, remove the badness of your dealings from in front of my eyes, cease to do bad, learn to do good, search for justice, set right the oppressor, render judgement for the fatherless boy and plead the cause of the widow.” They needed to repent turn around and stop doing what they were doing, change their attitude and start doing what Jehovah says is right and just.

verses 18-20 shows how if people become right with God he would forgive in a very large way and their sins he would remember no more. The rest of the chapter deals with how God prophesized there would be a people who would come to love him and serve him faithfully and bring glory to him. Chapter 2 continues on with this theme what is amazing to me is while I heard how the united nations is really anti bible anti god by most of the members they still managed to put part of a bible quote on the building (the second half)

Isaiah 2:4, “And he will certainly render judgement among the nations and set matters striaght respecting many peoples and they will have to beat their swords into plowshears and their spears into pruning shears, nation will not lift up sword against nation neither will they learn war anymore.”

While I agree with stopping wars, desperately so, I found it disheartening that they put this on the building fooling bible lovers of the land of christendom teaseing them that the UN would bring this about. And I find it very shameful to say the least that the leaders of christendom, especially religious leaders, advocating that this was Gods kingdom on earth when it was first founded in 1945. What blasphmy! they have just implicated Jehovah as a party to violence and massive blood shed and slavery, Wow, and all this without a trial or fair hearing, talk about unjust due process.

In fact the judges of isreal and the leaders were so bad Jehovah declared them to be the scummy dross that comes off of the valuable silver when cleaned, hence he declared them to be discarded in due time.

Isaiah 2 also talks about how in the later part of the days, which is our day, Gods worship would be restored and many willing ones would not only go up to his mountain (elevated worship over all other religions) but that they would invite still others to join (preaching and teaching work) And they would learn his ways and his laws, they would not look ot mans governments to solve the problems we have nor to give the laws we need to have true peace and security.

Jehovah reestablished pure worship and united those who yearned to worship him, this was foretold in isa 2:1-4 and Micah 4:1-3. in 1919 the anointed remnant (anointed as in to be corulers with christ) began a bold worldwide witnessing campaign that raised Jehovahs worship on high, overshadowing christendom (always remember christendom is not the same thing as christianty)which has been derelict in her duties in feeding Jehovahs sheep with pure waters of truth. IN fact revelation calls the waters of christendom wormwood.  In the 1930’s it became evident that the other sheep were being gathered in (other sheep jesus spoke about in John 10:16 that had a earthly hope, (psalms 37)Matt 5:5).

These thoughts are probably new to alot of people, that is okay, that is what research and study is all about, gaining more understanding. You know it is funny  I have read Isaiah many times in my systematic study over the years covering about 3 or 4 chapters of the bible every night (or most nights)but each time i do so I learn or relearn something new. it helps with connecting the dots too. Another little factoid about Isa 2:1-4, wars, this is the one constant human kind has had to deal with, it is a plague, a very catagious plague that spreads like a virus from one generation to the next. no generation has ever been free from wars except for very short periods of time.

I read this statistic i didnt know, According to world watch magezine during the 2000 years prior to the 20th century it took an average of 50 years for one million people to die in wars, during this century the length of time it took on average for a million people to die in war was one year. Amazing if you ask me.

I was just thinking as I typed this, imagine how much progress has been postponed because of war, think about it a moment, do you suppose if the scientists who developed technology and weapons for wars would spend their talents and skills into peaceful endeavors what would have happend by now? it is not hard to imagine we would of been able to beam ourselves from here to another country in seconds, (like star trek?) we could of eradicted hunger, solve most pollution problems, we would not be driving using combustion engines, probably would of developed energy sources off the grid, free to all, that would run on water or (I was told that in times past the cars could run on alcohol you make yourself) so maybe prohibition of alcohol was due to this and not because people got drunk and they decide to go ahead and lift the ban once gasoline was a  energy source for cars built specifically for it? Imagine having a trillion dollars a year just in the usa for innovating and solving pollution problems making life easier and cheaper for everyone? a trillion dollars, that is a lot of dough, much could of been accomplished with that much money, not counting the billions spent on wars on poverty, drugs and the like.

So do anyone of you out there really believe the rulers who claim humanitarian ideals are for real? do their actions match their words? if they really cared about the poor, the downtrodden would they bomb the heck out of their countrys water systems, food systems, roads, bridges and their houses and innocent bystanders in the name of saving them? Do they really want to save them or are they just interested in robbing them? Just look at the rico laws, (look up rico) they have used every excuse in the name of justice to trample on justice costing billions in lost homes, lives, freedom, property, jobs, all in the name of saving you and me from criminals.  Isaiah is not a out of date book, I am learning this more and more, Romans 15:4 “For all things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction that through our endurance and through the comfort of the scriptures that we might have hope.”

The information of Isaiah is important otherwise it would not be in the bible. So if you decide to read it yourself which I encourage highly, remember some of it applied to isreal but much applies to our days as it is full of prophecy of the last days we are in, and some of the things in there are symbolic, like mountains representing governments, trees, prominent individuals like leaders, both poltical and religious, things like that. Personality traits represented as certain types of animals, like lions and wolves being predatory on their fellow man, or vicious that sorta thing. Lambs representing meekness and mildness, sometimes depending on context Eygpt represents all governments of the world, as we know that Eygpt is mentioned in revelation but we also know that Eygpt as a world power declined thousands of years ago.   As I do more research Iwill post more factoids about it, doing this not only helps others but it helps me remember what I learned and read, as I have gotten older I have notice a problem with recall especially when my hormones are at low ebb. Yikes!

 

what was the original sin

Hi there, how is everyone doing today? hope it is sunny there for it is rainy here, but looks like the sun might just come out. For anyone interested and who probably have wondered what was the original sin that got Adam and Eve evicted from the garden of eden (hint: it wasnt sex otherwise how can they have babies as God commanded them to have them).

Adam and Eve had everything they needed to be happy, they had a beautiful garden of pleasure (Eden) they have enough to eat had wonderful activities together, no wickedness at all, no fear of death, no sickness as they would never die or get sick. All the commands God gave them were positive commands, what to do, not what not to do, except one prohibition. this prohibition would not cause any hardship of any kind. They could eat of all the trees of the garden and no doubt it had trees of every kind with some of the most delicious fruit imaginable. Their actions and thoughts would naturally be pure and clean and they were happy, they had not depression, or guilt or fear of the future. The garden had everything that was delightful to the eye and the animals were at peace and man had no fear of them harming him (imagine swimming with a great white shark under such circumstances).

What would happen if they disobeyed the prohibition? They would die, did anyone ever read they would die and go to heaven anywhere in the bible at all? Did they understand death? Yes, animals still died, they knew they were only around a short time, and that they didn’t exist before, they understood death very well, other wise Jehovah would be unjust to punish them with something they didn’t understand and far be it for the true God to act unjustly.

But some creepy angel decided (by meditating on it a while) that he wanted to be worshipped, a very selfish desire, he coveted something that didn’t belong to him and he had no right to, he developed a big head basically, so to get what he coveted, he decided to deceive eve (why not adam?)first, because she was the newer of the two and less experienced. So he twisted what God had said, and as a result she believed him over Jehovah who had never abused her, misled her or lied to her. And Adam followed suit and the rest is history.

But why did taking a fruit of a tree result in such a miserable world we live in, it was such a small disobedient act?  Well this sin reflected this lack of faith and love for the creator, it was a rebellion of self determination or independance of God, sin means to miss the mark, the standard Jehovah set for man, a limit where man could go and go no furthur morally speaking. today you see the results of everyone deciding what is right and wrong, you see the controversy, abortion is right, no it is wrong, homosexulaity is right, no wrong, obesity is a disease, no it is a moral failing, children born disabled is punishement for the parents for doing some wrongs (heard some politician guy say this) So what was so special about this tree of knowledge of good and bad?

I will quote someone who backs up what I understand it to be, THE JERUSALUM BIBLE in footnote on Genesis 2:17 comments concerning the tree of knowledge.  “This knowledge is a privelege which God reserves to himself and which by sinning is to lays hands on, 3:5, 22, it dos not mean ominiscience which fallen man does not possess, nor is it moral discrimination for unfallen man had it and God could not refuse it to a rational being, it is the power of deciding for himself what is good and what is evil and of acting accordingly, a claim to complete moral independence by which man refuses to recognize his status as a created being, the first sin was an attack on God’s soverignty a sin of pride.”

I have told some this and they didn’t believe that the tree represented God’s right to rule, to set the standards of what is right and wrong. Who can you think of is better qualified to decide what is good for man or not? I would put my happiness in his hands before any human wouldnt you? Heck even before I listen to myself, I can’t be trusted to rule over myself successfully, (sounds weird to say I know).  Surly satan would like you to think human wisdom is the way to true freedom, but he lies. If you dont worship Jehovah your worshipping satan and that is how he likes it. his biggest weapon against man is deception, making people believe they are serving God but are not. sad really, The apostle paul said you can recognize a servant of God or not by their actions. What are they doing? what is their attitude say about war? mans governments? marriage? honesty? poor people? foreigners? violence? How do they act towards others? what is their attitude and actions in the workplace? What do they like to talk about? Do they indicate to you that they love God or not?

Are they honest in the workplace? do they steal, or lie, or do they have fits of anger over small things? do they respect the laws of their country? do they go by the bibles principles when there is a difference of opinion like issues of abortion, or medical treatments or care of animals and children? Do they treat others like they want to be treated. do they respect the privacy of others? do they meddle in other people’s personal affairs? Do they think it is okay to lie cheat steal or kill in some circumstances but not others? are they consistent? Do they look to man’s governments to solve mankinds problems? You can tell who or what people worship? I look at people who get all hyped up over football or baseball teams and rooting for one team over another, and talking about it and watching it on tv and prioritizing their team or games over more important things like taking care of their children or family obligations as worshipping competition and human athletes.

Anyway sin is starting to become out of date in this day and age, and that is partly the fault of the religious leaders of christendom, who claim to know the bible and represent God of the bible but who belie the claim by advocating self determination and human governments as the pancrea for mankinds problems, thus elevating Satans house as the solution to the problems satan caused in the first place (talk about the fox guarding the hen house scenario) and this is partly the fault of the government rulers who do not pracitce what they preach who break the moral laws all in the name of obeying the moral laws. And now just like physical laws they aer breaking the moral laws and are reaping the consequences. these moral laws are just as sure as the physical laws.

Continuing the quote of this article I read, partial quote, “he can never escape the fact that he is a subject to many things including both physical and moral laws, if he tried to ignore these laws he soon comes into a clash with natural forces resulting in sickness or calamity or he encroaches upon the rights of others and meets with trouble.” So people wonder why Governements are getting worse and the sufferings and injustice they cause is getting worse. They are breaking these moral laws (and some physical as well)

So as long as sin rules over our bodies and minds, it is a battle to do right (apostle paul speaks about this struggle) romans 7:14-25.

So sin is something that cannot be eradicated thorugh our own effort hence the need for the ransom sacrifice Jesus gave, but this is for another post. as long as man is sinful (and satan is taking advantage of it to corrupt people beyond reform and he is a creep to boot) peace and security and paradise will never materialize.

“Our father in the heavens let your name be santified (hollowed) let your kingdom come and let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.” matthew 6:9-10 takes on more meaning when we learn about sin and it’s affects. I want you all to name just one human who can overcome satan and his propaganda without devine help? Any takers? Hence the need for this kingdom (government by God)and for his will to be done (if it was being done in the man governments would we need to even pray this anymore?)if the united nations is God’s expression of his kingdom on earth (christendoms words not mine) then why is it so corrupted, cruel and why is it breaking all of Gods moral laws? Do you suppose the leaders of chrsitendom are lying? why would they do that? the same reason satan did, they want something they have no right to, they want to be kings. Gross sin is really manifest in organizations, and in another post I will touch on the reason for that. Just think the expression I have heard many times over the years, “It is good to be King.” why? the king can make whatever laws he wants and take property from others at will and gain more wealth and power then anyone can ever achieve. So let us not be overcome by sin nor be seduced to crave what satans world has to offer, it is temporary and will not lead to happiness and peace for anyone. How?

this is for another post, see you all later,

 

 

babylon the great has fallen and can’t get up,

The mother of the harlots and the disgusting things of the earth has fallen and she literally will not get back up again. Who is this mother and why cant she get up again? Why should we care anyway?

First you have to know what this mother is, babylon the great. I have heard a few say it is rome, or big business, or whatever. it is nice to consider where babylon the great got started and why called babylon. you know babylon means babel, or confusion, (and if you say this world is  not one big confusing mess you have been living in a bubble). The original babylon was a world power called the third one of bible history (those powers that have control or affected God’s people) and the head of gold of daniels prophecy of the image of daniel chapter 2.Daniel said you (to the ruler of babylon) are the head of gold.

But furthur back in history babylon got started by a creep named nimrod, he was a hunter of not just animals (and wanton at that for sport and all the love of the kill that sorta thing) but a hunter of humans as well. He basically was a cold blooded cruel killer of animals and people. He it was that got a start in building cities and empires of control over their fellows for self enrichment. Military campaigns as it were.

You can read about this creep in genesis chap 11. Anyway this guy had no regard for God or man, thus he was morally depraved, you can bet your bottom and top dollar satan helped him quite a bit to become that way. His desire was rulership so he prompted the people there to build a city to the heavens so they could remain tightly together (rather then spread out like God wanted) to make a name for themselves, of course he was seeking control but he couldn’t tell them that, I mean it can be pretty hard controling people who are all spread out and independently self sustaining and all.

in fact he was so influential that many people worship and wear a symbol all around the world that honors him. Want to know what that is? It is similar to the letter of the alphabet. Many people believe this symbol represents the apparatus Jesus died on, but for bible scholars who really know their stuff Jesus died on a stake, one pole. That was customary way the creepy romans tortured their victims to death.

Rather this symbol was used in worship long before Jesus came on the scene, nimrods defied name was tammuz.(roman name apollo) today people still worship tammaz.  anyway, Babylon the great was a combo of political and religious center or foundation as it were. When God confused their languages to stop their diabolic plan they left off the city and spread abroad, like they should of done in the first place, and carried their beliefs with them. hence confusion, or babel. Hence the common denominator religious beliefs. What all have in common.

use of images, sun moon stars worship (both literal and symbolic) political involvement, military campaigns, supporting military operations of their home countries, perpetuating immorality,immortality of the soul (it doesn’t die jsut goes somewhere else), false teachings that discredit the bible, such as bible stories are myths, promotion of false worship like nature worship or evolution, teaching human philosophy instead of bible prinicples. trying to control by riding the scarlet colored wild beast (the united nations) hence more political meddling.

now what organizations can you think of that does exactly this all over the world regardless of nationality? is it not false religion? I was just reviewing revelation 17, 18, 14:8 ezekiel 9:1-11, and others like daniel 2:1-44 (rise and fall of world powers) also revelation 13 about the 7 headed wild beast,remember these are presented in signs not to be taken literally as far as symbolism here goes. rev 1:3

okay einstein, how has she fallen (I can hear you say that as plain as if we were talking on the phone) if you read rev 16:12 the river euphrates dries up, revelation 17:15 says the waters mean crowds, tongues and people, so she has support by the waters, (people). So basically babylon the great is losing support by the people, it is drying up, if you know about how the literal babylon was destroyed, cyrus diverted the river and the men were able to get into the city in thigh deep water. so while this river of the religious harlot is drying up it won’t be complety dried up. she will still have adherents when the political rulers turn on her.  Also she has fallen in that she could no longer hold people who love rightouenss and truth in subjection, they could now study the bible themselves and learn what it says, and no longer did the false teachings like immortality of the soul, hellfire, and other false teachings hold them in bondage to her.

Daniel wrote that many will rove about and the true knowledge will become abundant, in this case since we are talking Jehovah’s worship, basically means roving about in the bible getting and understanding and applying it. Daniel 12:1-13. It even says that no wicked one will understand but those having insight will. your not wicked are you?  I certainly hope not, lol. It also says this will occure in the later part of the days, which revelation chapter one says is the lord’s day, our day.

why give babylon the first attention for destruction? Because, christendom being the dominate part, has not taught the people to be moral servants of God, to be peaceable, loving, kind unselfish, it has winked at wrong doing, encouraged violence of every sort, it has done nothing to ease the burdens of oppression of sin, death, satan and political and commerical rulers, it has directed people to the wrong solutions for their suffering and injustice they endure all for the sake of keeping the people in subjection to them and their friends the political and commerical rulers. Basically the clergy and priests have become feeders of themselves fleeceing the flock.  And they have caused themselves and their flock (members) blood guilt in promoting warfare, and abortions and blood transfusions and abuse of these various tissues just mentioned. This blood guilt has to be avenged on babylon the great and anyone else who supports or condones what they are doing.

All of this has reproached Jehovah, made him appear to be condoning this crime wave, makes him appear to either not care or not even exist at all. But by using the political sheperds to turn on the religous sheperds and their supporters Jehovah having put it in their hearts as revelation 17:17 to do this thing and even for all the nations to give up their sovereignty to this scarlet beast (united nations) He shows that christendom and all other religions do not serve him, he doesn’t approve of what they are doing and thus he proves his innocence and his actual existance (like pharoah said “who is Jehovah so that I should obey his voice,… whats more I do not know Jehovah and I will not send isreal away.” Boy did he find out in a hurry how wrong he was to ignore the evidence right in front of his face.

And the political sheperds don’t get off quite easily as well, but they are for another post, they too have sins they have to answer for too. And you big business, your in for it to, for your crimes as well. Seems a bit harsh but has anyone considered how harsh man has been to other men, how merciless and cruel they have been to each other? Should Jehovah worry about the feelings of the tyrants of the world?

Jehovahs people will not be fighting in this instance, but they will be still when this time comes waiting on Jehovah and sounding out the word of what is going ot happen and what you can do to become a survivor into God’s wonderful new world where tyrants, nimrods, big business and human governments will not exist. Revelation 21:3-4

What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?.

love

Howdy folks, how is it going for you today? it is sunny and beautiful here how about where you are? the birds are definitly feeling it, I am feeling it and even my hubby and dogs are too. wow! never get tired of spring. this despite just getting over a upper respirtory infection.

I thought I would throw out something maybe many do not realize, maybe some of you do, but I noticed a trend in how the powers that be, whether that power be your hubby, church elders, bosses at work, or anyone of authority or even family members like children or spouses, there is one thing that stands out in my mind, I wont take credit for this simply because Jehovah taught me this, many wonder why other people can be so cruel, unfair, or unjust in their exercise of their power or authority (remember we all have some amount of power or influence over others to some degree even children) such as husband over wife parents over children, children over parents, friends towards their friends, or government authority over the masses, and how this relationship goes whether good or bad, happy or sad is contigent on one important factor, well maybe two but the one I had in mind is LOVE!

the bible describes what love is in 1 Corithians 13:4-8, Love is long suffering, it sticks with a situation because of the hope of chance of improvement because of love of the ones involved, love is not jealous, one does not digress the successes of others, even of a opponent or competitor such as in a sport activity or gaining a better job or having more in a material way or more in a spiritual or intellectual way. does not behave indecently, one respects the feelings of others, and acts accordingly even of strangers, does not look for own interests, one does not try to dominate a situation to the detrement of others, or one doesn’t try to have their way all the time, or one doesn’t desire what another has with intent to steal it or lure it away (like some people do when coveting a marriage mate of another)or to depreive another of something because they want it themselves that sorta thing.

love does not become provoked one doesn’t get upset at others easily but tries to look at things from thier standpoint, one does’t worry about ones pride,  does not hold a grudge, forgives and forgets, Just like Jehovah does. does not rejoice over unrighteousness, one doesn’t tolerate bad or evil things, or immorality but stands up for rightousness even if politically incorrect, one doesnt allow the feelings of others determine right and wrong. one does’t condone immorality or accept a person who does bad things to others simply because one worries about thier feelings. Jesus gave a example.

Jesus was denouncing the pharisees for thier unjust manner in treating the people, he told them flat out “You are from your father the devil and you wish to do the desires of that one, that one was a manslayer when he began and he did not stand fast in the truth because the truth is not in him, when he speaks a lie he speaks according to his own dispoisiton because he is a liar and a father of the lie.” john 8:44

now did he worry about thier “feelings”? nah, he worried more about the spiritual welfare of the people whom the pharisees were oppressing and exploiting. They were making up rules and procedures that went contrary to bible principles, they were making Jehovahs’ worship a burden all the while getting rich off the poor people when they should of been serving and not “eating them alive”.

this comes down to one fact the pharisees lacked, LOVE, they did not love the people whom they were sheperding. they were making rules that were impossible to follow and procedures they could never comply with.  they were basically using the color of law to oppress and profit off the people. doesn’t this sound familiar to anyone here? color of law, for the pharisees it was called traditions of men, in our day that is translated to legalism.

The first law that man must obey with no opting out is love Jehovah first and foremost over everything including life itself, which makes sense we are made in his image and we have this capacity to love and we need to love Jehovah to know how to love one another, and this beautiful earth he made for us and it’s wonderful crittors. second is love your neighbor as yourself. if everyone applied this there would be no oppression, cruelty, death, poverty, wars, etc.

so you see we are at the mercy of those who love less then us, a father loves his child more than the child does the father and abuses his father love for him causing misery to the father, husband loves wife or vice versa more and the other spouse makes that ones life miserable because of loving less. understand?

so government and corporate owners and wealthy elites and rulers, and others in positions of authority above us, police, mayors, employers, coworkers, etc who love less(dont have love for justice rightousness fellowman or God) than you (love rightousness and justice and are merciful, fair and honest) will make your life miserable in anyway they deem necessary to profit off your life liberty and property. (form of serfdom.) thus the reason this world is so miserable for us in it’s many facets.

Love rejoices with the truth, one would stand up for what is right and true, even at great cost to themselves. one would not excuse serious wrongdoing by protecting a person who has done serious sins such as murder, physical and emotional abuse, or hide a theif or condone violence.

so wondering why there is so much oppression, misery, suffering and cruelty of man dominating man to his injury? Lack of love. that is it in a nutshell. the one who loves Jehovah and his moral principles is at the mercy of those who do not love these things but love other things (money? power? self?)

so there you have it, abuse of one over another is caused by the abuser loving a person less than that person loves them. sad aint it?

religion and science

hi there friends, readers, children and anyone who wants to read this, welcome again to another exciting adventure in wonderland.  Just kidding, I was thinking a few moments ago something that intrigues me. you know people try to use science to prove (among other things that are good in themselves)that God does’t exist, an alternative to how we got here, where are we going, what the purpose of life is, why we die (compared to a sequoira that lives thousands and a turtle that can live 200 years) how our minds work, what is the best way to solve various problems, like health, what is moral what is not, I refer to the series’ what is the right thing to do” at harvard university which can be found on youtube.

now I watched some of that and I was amazed by something. religion, belief in god, a moral satandard set by god, physical laws, etc, is touted as out dated, not scientific, based on superstition and the like. now may I be frank, frank? just kidding, does anyone find this odd? why do I ask? well think about it what is religion? according to the dictionary it is a set of beliefs (in a nutshell) that one advocates and lives by, now man has questions and seeks answers, and wants to know how to solve everyday problems of life we all deal with no matter what generation we are living now or in the past. what sorta laws should we have, what is justice, what is truth, what is solution to economic problems and social and enviromental problems that sorta thing.

now lets compare science, what does science want? doesnt it want answers to the same questions and problems? does it not try to seek answers apart from the spiritual realm? how do they arrive at their conclusions on matters? don’t they first of all test a hypothesis, see what happens and interpret it the best way they know how? dont they confer with other science researchers too to get more ideas on how to interpret results?  don’t they sometimes come to the table already with their belief (religion) with the intention for the most part to find answers in harmony with that belief? example would be, global warming, many scienctis already have their hypothesis and really believe the conclusion will fit their agenda? so do not those who stick to the belief of global warming caused by co2 despite evidence to the contrary being religious? and if you have evidence both ways and one group is advocating one conclusion and another something oppisite and debating about it, does’t that enter the realm of religious dogma then instead of so called true science?

so when they come to a conclusion, is that not a religion? think about it, how do they know the conclusion is correct? how do they know there are no more factors they have not considered yet, example, they study the sun and it is a impressive star (tho a medium star by star standards)and understand alot about magnetics, and hydrogen and helium properties and nuclear fusion and all that  neato stuff, but doesn’t it stop being science and become a religious belief when they start predicting the future of what will happen to the sun and planet earth millions of years in advance? wouldnt we catagorize that as acting as a prophet (a religious realm) rather than so called nonreligious science?

And when they start studying global warming, dont they enter the realm of prophets again when they say what will happen to the earth s climate in decades from now? is that not a religion? is not religion what we call  when people who look for future events who want to understand the world around them? And doesn’t science (whether economic science, physical science, political science  even philosphy, etc) try to figure out what is moral correct, what is just and what laws should be made and followed? is morality and justice the realm of religion? doesn’t religion answer those questions too?

how about man’s interpertation of time and events in the earths’ very long past? is that not entering the realm of religious beliefs when they have to figure out time lines for events, guess what destroyed the dinosaurs, how long life has been here, how the earth was formed what order all things came about and why some went extinct, when they treat their conclusions as fact (I refer to a documentary I just watched, raging planet, or planet earth, can’t remember I believe it was a national geographic series) they spoke in that video series the conclusion they had about how the continents moved, how the planet formed that sorta thing, treating it as fact. how can they really know for sure? is that not based on their interepretations of what evidence they have?

so what happens in religion? well did not people in the past view their enviroment, see evidences of different things and based on what information they have come to conclusions too?  Did they not look at their proof after devling into what they believe was true evidence? for example, did they not learn that when they take certain plants they would have waking dreams? did they not take that evidence and confer with others to come to the conclusions that maybe this was contact with the spirit realm?

now you and I know why they saw visions, we know about many of the ways the mind works, but won’t we be considered supersititious by people in the future as they find other explanations of what was considered scientific now?  do you see where I am going with this? it is considered a scientific fact that there are mental illness that exist and needing medication to control it with their serious side affects, electro shock thearpy cruel confinement and the like, won’t people in the future consider this barbaric and supersititous when they find out that many of these conditions were just personality features (not disease at all)and nutrtional deficiencies they were unaware of in times past? dont people today consider the riturals and human and animal sacrifices as barbaric for the people in the past? would we say they at the time thought this was proper and the way to deal with problems they believed were caused by the spirit realm they believed in?

so really if religion is a belief based on evidence available to people as they understand it, is not science also a belief based on the evidence avaiable as they interpret it? are they really at odds? is it really not just how one interprets it?  we say magnetism, some say magic, we say spritural realm, we say differences in frequency, we say biological funtion of giving birth, others say miracle, some say neurotranmittors affects on the mind, others say feelings, do you see what I mean?

so don’t science and religion both depend on a continuation of searching and understanding our world and adjusting as we find evidences that show us a different understanding? basically doing research and gaining more experience that shows us what we believe is either correct or not? so doesn’t it become a problem for either religion or science when evidence is shown to contradict a past view that it is a unwillingness to adjust our thinking the actual problem rather than religion or science itself? And is the only real difference between religion and science basically one is ‘man centered ‘and the other is ‘God centered’? one says  man will solve all these problems and understand the universe, the other God will teach us and show us how to solve the problems the only real difference? you decide.

 

milky way galaxy

 

I had watched an animation of how our solar system is situated in the milky way galaxy, and how the sun moves at incredible speed (132 miles per second) dragging us along, and how our sun revolves around it’s own sun which then revolves around its own sun, and how long that takes solar system to go complely around the galaxy about 122 billion years, (wow, talk about a long time!!!!!)can you imagine if you were on a space ship going 11 millions miles a day? wow, you could really cover some distance in no time, but really with regard to the galaxy and universe that is like going down the street in real time and distance. The producer of the video likened our sun to a comet with our planets revolving around in a vortex like sprial rather then circle.

And when I looked at the milky way galaxy and where our solar system was I was flabergasted at how tiny we were in relation to sirus, the center sun, and to the milky way galaxy itself. WOW!!!! And it is amazing that there are millions of other galaxies out there that are even bigger so I have been told. why do I bring this up? Well I have been watching and reading so much stuff from everyone to economists, scientists, to political anaylstes, to enviromental “experst”, to free will thinkers and philosphers you name it I have watched or read it. And I got to thinking after all the stuff I disagreed and agreed, I realized something that really puts it all into perspective.

We are incredily tiny, I mean really tiny, we have no idea how tiny we are in relation to all these forces in our world. The sun, sirus, the galaxy, the suns speed thorugh the universe, the distances we can’t even imagine, the powerful forces we can’t see like magnetism, gravity and proton belts and the whole works.

So when I think about all the stuff I have learned, mans attempts to solve the big problems of the world thorugh their ideas, some even using the power of the state (it’s military, police, lawmaking etc) and money I am taken aback at the arrogance we have, some without knowing it, to think we can solve big problems of wars, death, poverty, climate changes, desertification, forest management, water management, injustice, simply by giving power to another group calling themselves government, and using a few tools designed by scientists and researchers like cloud seeding, changing the amount of a trace gas like co2, or controling the weather in ways to avert perceived disasters or population control, increasing buaracracies, and forcing policy and rules on people for the sake of some problem when they don’t even understand the problem, the physics and how everything was designed, and cant even see beyond our own surroundings or know the difference between a truth and a lie, between justice and injustice, or between moral rights and wrongs and are on this planet a short time, and unable to even control our own thoughts very well, how in the name of anything sensible can we think we can do anything to alter these forces when we can’t even keep ourselves from dying or getting sick?

what has possessed even scientists and researchers who can see alot more about the forces of nature then us who can see the design, complexity, and the minimal impact we have on controling them, to even think they can control even the most rudimentary physical laws, let alone a complex system like the earth’s climate, land and water use, and massive problems humans have faced for thousands of years? wouldnt it be prudent to recognize our limitations and the need for something greater than ourselves? wouldnt it be good to humble ourselves and ask for help? Should we not now see the importance of jesus words when he said pray this way (our father in the heavens may your name be santified (hallowed) let your kingdom come, let your will take place as in heaven also upon the earth.)?

what say you?

what does it mean to be a jehovah’s witness?

 

what does it mean to be one of Jehovah’s witnesses? have you ever wondered that? I mean don’y you see us going door to door? maybe some of the conventions we have in various places around the world many see us and wonder, don’t you? so what does it mean then?

Just think about the name, Jehovah witness, what does a witness do? what exactly do they use witnesses for in court for example? tell what you know or what you have seen? what have I seen that I testify to? That Jehovah name has been tainted, muddied, reproached, blasphemied, and that he has been treated unjustly and he has been blamed for all the suffering the world has/is suffering, without anyone giving him a fair hearing as one would expect in a court of law.

when we go door to door we give others the chance to hear his side of the story, the chance to benefit from his loving concern, to see how he will end the suffering that he is blamed for, why he as allowed this suffering, and how we will benefit in a way that we would just be awestruck by. By striving to speak on his behalf we endeavor to help people see where the real problem lies and how Jehovah has not done to us what we deserve or left us in a lurch. we show by our obedience to his moral laws we show how his way is the best way to solve mankinds problems, to end the violence done to each other.

by remaining neutral to politics we show to others that we do not condone nor support the wars, and violence done in the name of saving people from tyranny while at the same time causing tyranny, and our hands remain clean before Jehovah and honest hearted people, we don’t share in the blame of those in power who break Jehovahs laws in the name of some end that appears good when in fact it is not. we show by our actions that we desire to see an end to all wars, violence, death and suffering. we show that we recognize jehovahs right to rule over the earth due to his creatorship, and we recognize that man’s efforts to end this violence cannot come through any of man’s efforts no matter how noble the motives.

we show others by what we say and do that we recognize the affects of Satan and his demon hordes use of governments, the economic system and religious institutions to do his bidding. How satan is behind all the false called knowledge, evolution,  enviromentalism,government being a righteous entity, and religion being a solution to a growing moral problem and materialism being a good thing. he is behind the wars, violence that is done in the name of some good or benevolent purpose.

we show that we want to see mankind united, in peaceful conditions where death is no more, that we trust that Jehovah’s way and motives are pure and above reproach. and endeavor to witness to this fact for those who care to listen. Far be it for anyone who loves Jehovah and his neighbor to want anything less, and to testify how that will be accomplished without using violence to achieve it.

we witness to the fact that Jehovah being our creator has the right and our best interests at heart to determine what is good and bad. He is the one who has the right to give life or take it away when someone is incorrigable. we recongize that wonderful qualities he has and try to share that with others, those qualities of love, justice, wisdom and power which are all balanced.  His quality of justice, wisdom and power did not motivate or require him to create life, his love did.

He doesn’t need us, he was complete, he lacked nothing, he created us to share life, not to create slaves, he was quite capable of doing all for himself without much effort if any at all. satan would have people believe that Jehovah’s motives are impure that he wants to enslave and being waited on hand and foot when it is satan who wants exactly that. He has used false religion and tv, movies and newspapers and magezines to give a wrong impression of the kind of person Jehovah is.

so I testify before all who read this Jehovah is not responsible for the injustices in the world he does not force people to love him, and does not force people to use their free will properly, he does hold an accounting for how we use this life he has given us, he will determine who is deserving of mercy and who is not, satan does not do this, he has no compassion or love, he never shows mercy he is limited by Jehovah to how much he can do as he was limited to how he could test job. If satan had full reign to do as he pleases he would of destroyed all mankind long ago, and no Jehovah’s witness would ever exist as he would stamp them out immediatly. but Jehovah’s love for mankind and eventually salvation by him would not allow him to let satan to do so. Satans contends not that Jehovah is not all powerful, but that he doesn’t have our best interests at heart, that he doens’t rule with totally unselfish motives, when in fact it is satan who is called a manslayer, who is the accuser and slandering of others whether man or angel or Jehovah.

do we do these things perfectly? absolutly not. we stumble many times but as the bible indicates the righteous may stumble many times but certainly will get up and continue on. Jehovahs approval is not contingent on being perfect. it is contengent on loving him and obeying him to the fullest extent we are capable of.

so if you have wondered, wonder no more. this is just the tip of the ice berg but should be enough to give you the idea what we are all about.

thanks for reading. have a wonderful day okay?

 

you didn’t build that!

check out this link.

this is funny, please don’t be too surprised people will not give credit where credit is due nor give someone the credit they deserve,  after all scientists and socialists, and doctors, and experts give evolution the credit (who is evolution anyway? is this guy someone I have met before?) for the earth and all its wonders, basically saying to Jehovah, “You Didn’t Build That!!”

so does evolution (chance with animals having enough intelligence to alter their own  dna at will as needed?) or a creator who is intelligent who made every thing according to it’s kind (Horse kind, dog kind, cat kind, bird kind, cattle kind etc)?
