I saw a quote by a charismatic preacher in Colorado named Ted Garner where he said that humans are in one of two trees; the tree of knowledge of good and evil and tree of Life. The first tree is external where we try to live life from the outside in. For example, we try to keep God’s commandments legalistically, This can result in having a harder life, feeling like we are doing it out of own efforts, and can make us more judgmental towards others.
If we are in the tree of life, we are living life from the inside out. This is also called the life hidden with Christ in God. Everything feels more natural in this tree. We are more focused, and everything just falls into place. Jesus even said if we seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, all else would be added.
The tree of knowledge of good and evil is man’s attempt to eat of the forbidden fruit, which is questioning God and trying to be God. The man in this tree will probably value science over true religion, with the former leading to an actual worship of scientific knowledge.
Life will feel harder if we are in the tree of knowledge. Not that knowledge in and of itself is a bad thing, since it takes knowledge to do anything. This may sound like a prosperity gospel, but life wasn’t meant to be hard or a struggle.
Why is the tree of life so hard to get into if it promises so many blessings? Because humans over complicate things when all God asks us to do is trust Him. Every time we doubt God and trust in our own faculties we take a bite out of the forbidden fruit.
“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.
Science is looking for intelligent life on other planets. This could mean they have given up on us.
Intelligence can manifest as “booksmarts” or common sense. The latter is just intuitive intelligence and can be a sign of divine wisdom. The former by itself is just head knowledge and means we’re still idiots.
It’s interesting how we are more educated but still dumb as shit in a lot of ways.True intelligence comes from a reverence for the Divine and will result in intuitively understanding things without really studying it.
Man is the only species that has to pay to live here on earth. Yet despite our intelligence at making money, we have never been able to make a life to enjoy it.
If science did discover life on other planets, the government would send them aid, or bring them over here as immigrants. Also the central bankers would put a central bank on the other planets and try to set up a democracy and steal their resources.
