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.”
The fastest growing occupation these days seems to be disability.
The leading cause of death is politics.
Politics is the only thing that is dirtier than porn.
I am in no way saying politics is light. By nature anything political is corrupt. Getting more involved in politics corrupts us. This is the mistake the church makes.
People that lose faith in God tend to become more dependent on systems of the world. Then they develop Stockholm syndrome; that is they hate it but don’t want to see it collapse.
All man made systems collapse. This is the so called end of the world. The world actually never ends.
The fact that mankind has a tendency towards evil proves there must be some kind of intelligent design that keeps the world together while we destroy it.
The Bible says an estimated 365 times not to live in fear.
Most people live in fear. They seek out security to the extent they are willing to give up certain individual liberties. Benjamin Franklin warned against this when he said if you exchange liberty for security you end up with neither.
The basic nature of the world is insecurity is. Those in the tree of knowledge are seeking security within themselves. Those in the tree of life trust in and live life from God.
Who are you trusting in?
If you trust in anything man made to bring you security, you are living in poverty.
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
