Proverbs 23:7. . . As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Today’s daily rant is just me wondering when a person’s opinion becomes a fact. People tend to think that because they, along with most of the people they associate with, believe that their opinion are the Gospel truth. Religious denominations have been formed around this. Anybody that questions it becomes an outcast.
The most known example is that most people believe life is hard. So they assume that it’s a fact that life is hard. It is still an opinion because some people know that life is what you make it. If it’s hard then you are making it hard. And creating a theology or philosophy that justifies it.
Part of the fall of man is that people are oriented toward the negative. On top of that, many don’t believe in freewill; thus they get a helpless victim mentality view of life.
Today’s verse says ,”as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”. If you want a positive life, you have to take personal responsibility and change your thoughts. Most mental and even physical illnesses are a result of “stinkin’ thinkin'” as Joyce Meyer would say.
Another opinion came from someone I dated. It goes “opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink.” Or as the Bible puts it, “let God’s Word be true and every man a liar.”
So much for being positive You just get slapped back into reality Just visit a homeless shelter or low income neighborhood and find out human nature is finite No such thing as unlimited potential because at some point everyone gets tapped out Even economies can’t produce enough jobs for everyone. There is no such thing as a system that works for everyone Jesus isn’t coming back to save anyone because that was fulfilled in ad 70 and his kingdom isn’t of this world. In layman’s terms we are all fucked Always have been Always will be The only way out of this shithole called earth is death Blessings and peace Go with God Or whatever name you ascribe to the force
Well, not sure where all that came from. Just some dank poetry which appears to be my new specialty.
They say writing poetry is a good way to release what is in your soul. Damn, apparently I must be pretty dark in there.
Time and money are both man made illusions to count our days and measure our wealth. Every notice why everything man creates we never have enough of. True wealth is free and there is always an abundance, as long as you connect to the source of life itself.
These little things that I get from reading “Timekeeper” by Mitch Albom.
