As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. I am the vine. You are the branches.

If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned. If you remain in me, and my words remain in you, you will ask whatever you desire, and it will be done for you. “In this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit; and so you will be my disciples. Even as the Father has loved me, I also have loved you. Remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and remain in his love. 11 I have spoken these things to you, that my joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be made full.

Living an unexamined life is like a rock song that I used to sing when I was young as enjoying the music without taking any thought of its words.

It seems like the scientific community is wanting to find another habitable planet to explain life on earth or at least propose the possibility of other life permitting planets or universes as a push back in rejecting a God theory of existence, yet even so, this does not necessarily answer the question of origins as it only pushes it back to an ultimate Originator who created all things including otherworldly possibilities as even a multiverse.

The echoes of creation are the reality of a Yodeler, Psalm 19:1-4 #godsaidso

 

 

Some despise the idea of Jesus as a substitutionary atonement in taking their place of sinful judgment but adore the concept of a loving parent who would suffer on behalf of their children, #childofGod

 

 

I mostly try my best but sometimes it’s doesn’t end up the best way.

 

 

Have you felt like you’ve been perfectly set up for an evil attack thinking to yourself ‘now that’s pure Devil’.

Mathew 6:13

13 Bring us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the Kingdom, the power, and the glory forever. Amen

 

 

People want you to be perfect for them and so I’m thinking what they really need then is Jesus.

 

 

Have you noticed that some people put the gift of intelligence above that of someone who has an excellent moral aptitude as if wit has somehow outsmarted the wisdom of a virtuous character?

1 Corinthians 3:18-21

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone thinks that he is wise among you in this world, let him become a fool, that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He has taken the wise in their craftiness.” 20 And again, “The Lord knows the reasoning of the wise, that it is worthless.” 21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours,

 

 

You may think that you and Jesus have your own thing going. All I can say is that it better be going His way, #justsayin

 

 

People are actively euthanized when they are denied the life-sustaining power of Christ as raising them from the dead.

 

 

God’s mercy killing was in extending mercy to others who benefited from Christ’s death.

 

 

Have you ever noticed how some people have a split personality when it comes to Jesus as fearfully avoiding any conversations about Him to suddenly speaking blasphemous profanities as misusing His name?

 

 

Humanity is not really good at multitasking especially when entertaining the Devil by playing church., #chooseyouthisdaywhomyouwillserve, #doubleminded

 

 

If a person lacks awareness in knowing they are god then explain to me how such perfection could have ever devolved in becoming imperfectly ignorant? #Perfect!

 

 

With Christianity it’s not about what you think you’ve got; it’s about what you know you have.

Romans 8:16

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God;

 

 

If we’d begin calculating the man hours worked in acquiring the things we own then perhaps we’d be more mindful in not wasting our money on useless stuff that doesn’t really matter anyway and when comparing the work of Christ who paid with His life to possess us then we should recognize and appreciate the ultimate value of a worthwhile life spent on acquiring riches unto God which for our sake is eternally priceless, #sowhatsinyourtreasure

Mathew 16:26

26 For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world, and forfeits his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life?

Mathew 6:19-21

19 “Don’t lay up treasures for yourselves on the earth, where moth and rust consume, and where thieves break through and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consume, and where thieves don’t break through and steal; 21 for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

 

 

Lust is never satisfied, as it is always hungry to eat out wherever it can find a cheap meal.

 

 

When some remove the miraculous workings of the Holy Spirit from the contemporary church then they move dangerously close to a replacement theology in exchanging a biblical theism with a modern-day revival of neo-deism.

 

 

Don’t insult Hell by comparing it to an Earthly existence nor Heaven for that matter. On Earth, there is a hopeful anticipation of a Heaven to come whereas in Hell there is no hope.

2 Thessalonians 1:8-9

giving vengeance to those who don’t know God, and to those who don’t obey the Good News of our Lord Jesus, who will pay the penalty: eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might

Romans 8:16-18

16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us.

 

 

I’ll admit when looking for a product I’m first drawn to the fancy packaging only to find out it may not always represent a superior product. False religions are packaged accordingly as with a consumer driven look that has been designed with an appealing wrapper to conceal its inferiority.

 

 

I am thinking that being in a penitentiary is like driving on a crazy freeway in that you need to pay attention to what is going on around you without staring or making gestures at anyone, #roadrage

 

 

False religion is like waiting to open a beautiful Christmas package that has been kept under the tree with your name on it. The problem is that you never really know what you’re going to get and then if you’re naughty the present may just suddenly disappear as having to hold off for yet another season to get your prize, if you even get it then. Yet Christ’s beautiful gift is not packaged like that in that ‘now is the day of salvation’ as the mystery of God has been revealed in opening up a new and living way so as to enjoy the goodness of His Present (Presence) as He was hung on a tree so that your name would be indelibly inscribed in the ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’. #merrychristmas

 

 

Some people want to be in control so much that they will even use religion as a means to their end. Interestingly enough, Jesus relinquished His will to the Father while false teachers and prophets insist on their will being done.

 

 

I had my wife pick me up some jerky and she made the mistake of getting the wrong kind which turned out for the better as I enjoyed it even more than the other. In comparison, you might mistake someone else as a jerk when challenging you to enjoy Jesus over other worldviews. #tasteandseethattheLordisgood

 

 

Some people want you to respect their decisions no matter what and what I don’t understand is why they would rather hold on to their respect while risking the possibility of losing their honor, #theydidittheirway

Proverbs 12:15

15 

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,

but he who is wise listens to counsel.

 

Proverbs 18:2-3

A fool has no delight in understanding,

but only in revealing his own opinion.

When wickedness comes, contempt also comes,

and with shame comes disgrace.

 

 

What kind of god leaves you wondering about Heaven or the Afterlife? I’d be wondering about that god.
