This week we heard from a woman Named Christine Blasely Ford that she thought she was going to be assaulted by Nominee Brent Kavanaugh, just because this woman believed this did not make it true or untrue, however, if you listen close, nothing happened anywhere except for in her mind. She said she believed it was going to happen, yet the statement is an admission that it did not happen. So no matter what happened in her mind, nothing happened in reality. A thought is not a wrong action! Yet we are still hearing about a hold out voter. I hope he’s on his way out of his state, enough is enough.
I wonder what Atheist’s say when they die, get to heaven and then find out, there is a God.
I know, I know, you are thinking Atheist’s don’t even pray, because they do not believe in a spiritual realm.
Atheist, Noun, a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods. A lack of belief in God or gods. So atheism is a religion, right? Wrong again according to the American Atheists they are not a religion or lack of one. Mostly they just want the right to not believe, in God or gods, just as I want the right to believe in God, as I understand God. It sounds very political, however I think it is also quite simple.
Over history many people have believed that what ever they believe or fail to believe is true, I would say the mind is very powerful and that could be a true statement within itself.
However lets look at believing history, some history is correct and some history is distorted, like Bill Clinton was not impeached, wrong he was, he was just never forced to leave office. He lost his law license, and paid hefty fines for bad behavior. Was he pardoned for his impeachment? Was he a part of his own Pardon-gate? Reality was he was charged investigated and acquitted on all charges, no Democrat voted against him at all. Media has told the story a zillion ways, knowing that humanity is to lazy to look it up, check it out, find out, document it, so they tell it a different way every chance they get and it is not long until the public does not know the truth. A change of a word here and a word there, changes everything. Trust what’s that? By the way President Clinton did admittedly have “it”, some sexual act with Monica Lewinsky, “it” was not a thought, “it” was an act of some sexual sort that ended up on the front of her dress, DNA.
The Roman historian and senator Tacitus referred to Christ, his execution by Pontus Pilate, and the existence of early Christians in Rome in one page of his final work, Annals (written ca.AD 116) book 15 chapter 44.(1)
The passage is one of the earliest non-Christian references to the origins of Christianity, the execution of Christ described in the canonical gospels, and the presence and persecutions of Christians in 1st-century Rome. Scholars consider Tacitus’ to be both authentic, and of historical value as an independent Roman Source. Tacitus provides a non-Christian confirmation of the crucifixion of Jesus. Kept in Empoli, Italy.
Everyone believes is something even if it is the choice to not believe in something. They still believe somehow, some way, about something. Or maybe they don’t, but either way they do.
My friend and I love to eat Chinese food, and we always read the fortune cookie, it I believe what is written, will it come true? Maybe, or maybe it is a coincidence. The fact is we can all choose what we want to believe, can we believe untrue things, sure we can. Or we can be skeptically optimistic and believe everything we see, or hear is true. What is true for you? That is the real question. I believe we all hear the same drummer on the eternal realm, how we dance to the drummer is each of our individual personal TrueTypes. My drummer is God, he gave us the written word I know as the Bible, here are some things it says about faith and truth.
In John 20:29 Jesus said to him, “have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
So seeing is believing and not seeing is believing, right? Could be, perception is a strong precursor.
The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd. By Faith, we see the world called into existence by God’s word, what we see created by what we don’t see. Hebrews 11: 1-3 (The Message).
Seems there is an explanation for what we believe or don’t believe in scripture, so what do they say when they find out there is another side, our other side.?
