Confessions of a screwed up middle aged man: as another year comes to an end


This year has been rougher than some, but nowhere near my year of Job. This is the nature of living within this temporal reality we are to live in.
On one hand it has been wonderful. As I share time with the woman that God has brought into my life. For the first, I am in a happy relationship that helps both within it to grow and be content with each other’s companionship.
On the spiritual front it has been a rough year. I feel as if the rudder of my ship has become damaged and at times I drift.
I know I am to seek out further sanctification, however I see a need to surrender more of myself to accomplish this. Is this not the ever ongoing struggle that we all must deal with? We are told outright. We must place God at the center of our lives. Yet time and again it is not God we place here, but ourselves. As I write these word I know without a doubt that is my problem.
To many, they already see me as separate from them. Yet I know I must in a way separate further. However at the same exact time I must draw others closer so that they can truly see Jesus within my life. Then ultimately they can be able to see God through the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles, within the books of the New Testament.
One of my greatest challenges is trying to get people to understand that we are required to live our lives Biblically. This is a key element of sanctification.
Helping people to understand that we are required to follow the laws of the land that do not conflict with the Bible. Causing people to understand that they cannot rely upon humanity, thus the government, to care for them. That it is their responsibility to fix their own lives. Humans can’t fix humans, since all of humanity is broken. Only God can fix them.
There is only one way to see God. There is only one way to understand God. That is through Jesus Christ and His teaches which are the New Testament.
They need to understand that if it says to live a certain way they will not get into heaven. Then they need to accept this as the truth and turn from this live style.
These are the dilemmas that I am confronted with. It is a burden that is required by those that are told to be the light unto the darkness. We can only be a light if we do not reflect the world, but Jesus Christ. Yet too many reflect the world and think they are reflecting Jesus. Can any totally stop reflecting the world? No, however we must strive to ever be a brighter light. A better reflection of Jesus Christ.
These are things that I deal with constantly. These are things all that call themselves “Christian,” should deal with. Not just the Pastor, Ministers and or Priest, but ALL that call themselves a “child of God.”
For all get discouraged, especially when humans count on other humans to bear their burdens. None can bear their own. So how can they bear others as well?
Only God through Jesus Christ can bear the weight. Of this I have no doubt. For Jesus Christ has helped me with mine, and He can handle everyone’s. This was why He went to the cross. For the burdens of all that have lived, that are alive and that will live.

Controlling the narrative


I just encountered an article which stated that those in power in Catholicism were hiding and rewriting history. Since the Catholic Church is the largest Christian based religion at 1.2 billion people. The person’s prospective was an Atheist one as well as nor fully informed of the facts. However they did cause me to think, which is what we are to do.
As I stated to a friend that had commented upon the article, I do not doubt that those within the Vatican have strived to pursue their own agendas and goals. This was proven and as a resulted the Reformation took place. It must also be noted that we use Greek when translating the New Testament. Since Catholicism uses Latin this begs the question of why? The answer to this also confirms that it was those in power within the Catholic Church to control the masses. A majority of the Latin variation of the book of the Bible were found to be flawed and inaccurate. So it became the consensus of the scholars of the Bible to stick to the eastern Roman Empire manuscripts instead of the western empire or as it came to be known the Roman Catholic Church.
This fact destroys the articles premise that the Bible has been doctored and is still flawed at this time. However it doesn’t remove suspicion from the Vatican, which is documented to adding things never found within the Bible and requiring rituals that again cannot be supported by the Bible.
Now that it is shown that the Catholic Church has done things in order to control those that follow their rules, this does not leave the person that wrote the article free and clear since it is shown that the article is flawed.
Within the article we once again hear the mythology of ancient aliens. I always fall back upon the liberal academia’s own wording of how a myth comes to be. Per them a historical event can become a myth if it is written about 150 year after the event took place. We know that the flood, which is the key element of the person article took place between 3000 to 2800 B.C. So that is well beyond 150 years and the context of the article dealt with the pre-flood culture. The person even mentions giants. Well it is shown that when angels mated with human females, giants were the result and it is said they did exist in great number before the flood. This person’s myth of aliens is design to remove God and the Bible from the narrative. Why?
This is all part of the progressive agenda, which wish to control their own version of the narrative so they can promote their own myths to control the masses.
This is why those within the Democratic Party have been caught showing a total dislike of the Catholic Church. For they are in conflict with each other. Not for God, but for those within the Catholic Church. They encourage false and uniformed narratives like ancient aliens for this displaces God and cause humans to look to humans to rule and control them.
What is needed is that people need to learn the Bible for themselves. To think for themselves and not let anyone from the person on the dais to the person in an oval office to dictate to them how they are to live, act and feel. There is only one being that deserves to be listened to and that is God who created the entire universe. Nature is God. Time is God. The Bible is God.
God gave us a way to commune with Him and that is His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. If we should listen to anyone or anything then we should listen to the one book that was written in under 150 years after the event took place. That is the Bible. People still lived when the letters that form the New Testament were written that saw Jesus. That knew the apostle and were and were the apostles. Yet people say the Bible is the myth? When did they start saying this? After the 150 year mark. So it is they that are making the myths, not the Bible. That is the narrative that needs to be listened to and controlled.
