“In the beginning God made them, um, not really sure what they are now.”- Paraphrased Politically Correct Bible
The Bible says God isn’t the author of confusion. But no one really knows what they are doing and we are constantly running around, acting confused but trying to hide it, and telling people how smart we are. If you have to tell people how smart you are, then you aren’t. It’s kind of like a true prophet will never call himself a prophet.
I once saw a trans person running back and forth at a fast food place. The shift manager told him/her to choose one I think he was talking about the restrooms.
Facebook has an option for custom under the gender section of your profile. Maybe if I customize myself, I can start dating myself. I may find out that I am the person I have been waiting for all these years.
Where have I been all my life?
Gender: 1) Male 2) Female 3) It’s the 21st century, we have more options than this!
Last count we were up to 75 genders now. How’s that for evolution? You can study this in college. Along with the science of Batman. Anything to get people to enroll.
In the last few years, I have grown weary of hearing the word bipolar. For a rare condition it seems as if over half of the mentally ill people in the United States have this label. Then I started to realize maybe all of human nature is bipolar; what with the ups and downs of life.
The word bisexual is another word that I hear a lot of. The magazine Psychology Today even had an article that read something like 80% of humans are bisexual, with very few of us going entirely one way or the other. I would venture to say that since this pisses people off hearing it, there must be some truth to it.
The great Philosopher, Kurt Cobain, once had a song back in the 90’s where he said “What else can I say, everyone is gay.”
Next up we have bi-vocational. As a writer, I realize very few writers can support themselves off of their writing alone. Most are either educators or businessmen. Most people in general have two or more jobs. This includes some people who make six figures a year. The latter may have one full-time job, one side business and be partner in one or more businesses which generate passive income in addition to the other two.
When I think about that last sentence, I almost get tired just thinking about all of those hours.
So we have bipolar, bisexual, and bi-vocational. What’s next? Bifocals?
The biggest mystery in life is whether or not we have freewill? Most people assume we don’t. Life would often appear to the unenlightened to be predestined. This just means we have no control which means life just happens to us Talk about mental slavery. Your rulers and masters will have a field day with this because they will use it to control you. Until you develop enough spiritual discernment to break free and learn to rule yourself.
In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, self-reliance is really just a God-reliance.
We have freewill but our will is enslaved to our materialistic desires. Even Paul claimed to always do what he didn’t want to do and being unable to do what he wanted.
In the book of Genesis, God told Cain that if he did right God would bless him, but if did wrong then sin would lay in wait, crouching at his door. It was Cain’s choice.
We make our own choices in life, even if our motivations are buried in the subconcious mind.
If we are not free then we are a slave. Paul talks about being a slave to God. This just means a slave to righteousness since that is where righteousness comes from. A slave to doing the right thing, which is basically just trusting God for wisdom to make the best, common sense choice.
Yes, common sense is just intuitive divine wisdom No wonder in a godless world it is declining. You make your own choices and even if it’s the wrong one, if you are putting the Divine will first, then He brings something good out of it.

that the life is hard mentality doesn’t bear much fruit in life.
the Bible say about a hard life?
The primary verse that jumps to mind is “the way of the transgressor is hard”. You can google the location for yourself. I believe it is in Proverbs or Psalms. There are verses like Psalm 1 that says the way of the righteous is prosperous and brings for much fruit; not necessarily pertaining to material gain.
transgressor’s life is so hard, what exactly is a transgressor?
sin as transgression of the law. Since
it is the law that brings for the knowledge of sin, or sin consciousness, and
Jesus said that love fulfills the law, then transgressing the law is following
it in a way that awakens the sin consciousness which only condemns us.

Chesterton said in one of his books that socialism may be what saves the world

love is the currency.

very little difference between political systems. They all have their good
points and bad points. Whenever you lose focus on the Divine and focus on the
political system itself, it becomes corrupt and everyone gets enslaved.
it is also good to note that you will never find freedom within any political
system. Freedom is purely spiritual and only flows from being in right
relationship with God. Although from the Universalist perspective, everyone
already is (spiritual Jew & Gentile). There is no “getting saved”, only the
knowledge of salvation.
We’ve heard the old saying “Survival of the Fittest” and the famous one “God helps those who helps themselves.” Is this Biblical? Who are the fittest and the ones to whom God helps that help themselves?
Mental illness along with illnesses of the body are usually not found in those that consider themselves “strong.” Even the “strongest” person admits they have weaknesses. So why don’t we acknowledge our illnesses, particularly mental, as our weaknesses? We admit our character defects which for the most part include our sins. So why don’t we consider our infirmities as weaknesses? After all when you struggle with something for a long time it can wear down your body’s immune system. This is especially true when as we get older and prolonged years of stress & anxiety “weaken” our immune system and we end up having to take medicine as we get older.
So who are the ones who are the fittest? Some have a strong faith in God and some are strong in and of themselves. However no one is entirely that strong in and of themselves apart from God. Therefore it’s God who gives you the grace to make it through each day. You’re just deluded into thinking you’re such a “good person” in and of yourself.
Years of being grounded in the Word of God can “strengthen” your character as well. As you pray and seek God you can better discern His Will for you life so that you know almost exactly what to pray for. Then you stand on the Word and trust in God’s timing for the answer. God for the most part either says Yes when He grants it to you or wait. He only says no if it goes against His Word. Although all your prayers have their yes in Messiah Yeshua as everything you ultimately seek can be found in Him; security, significance, salvation, purpose,
So to sum it up Survival of the Fittest can best be attributed to Survival of the Faithful. Although no matter how godly or faithful you can get you can always get struck down with cancer, heart disease, mental illness. You will be healed of it even if it kills you; i.e. if God uses it as His means of Grace to call you home.
