Tell me where I am wrong. The material world is recognized only through sensation and perception. In this crisis we strive to identify consistency to seek solid ground. Welcome to science. Scientifically, matter has not the potential to create yet “What is” is. Look, the physical realm is a product of something greater.
A reverse engineering methodology cannot pledge faith because it is not human but a scientist can. Empirical output does not identify art but a person can. Pronouncing atheism due to the lack of scientific facts is nonsensical and short-sighted because life is much more than science could ever possibly explain it. Through adoption Jesus Christ delivers a living truth that sets Love as the carrier frequency for Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. So my question to you is this, “How could your way possibly be better than this?” Be honest, it’s not. Enjoy a relationship with Christ.
What’s the harm in my faithfully believing in Jesus Christ? How could this possibly hurt me?
Physiologically the most important structure of grass is its crown. From this crown roots and tillers grow, and in due course yields its fruitful seed. The roots below and shoots above are replenished if damaged but when the crown is destroyed the plant dies. The crown determines the health of all other parts.
The grass plant represents your faith. Holy Scripture read with distain produces little fruit but uphold its precious crown and you will realize its truth.
Science cannot identify God because God is supernatural. Yet He is identifiable and therefore does exist.
One of the reasons why I trust in the Word is the doctrine that justice and injustice is defined by the spirit of love, rather than by worldly intellectuals and power seeking entities. But thank Christ for saving grace. Unyielding love, should this exist, calls out evil, but what is unwavering love? Love is relational. Beyond that debate is lively.
Everybody wants to be loved, you know… it’s another one of those great common denominators. Absent of love we might self-destruct. Love in a sense is self-gratifying isn’t it, to feel wanted. Fortunately it is so much more than that. How much we love, now that’s a different aspect altogether. Secular realities can cause a person to meter and effectively tune their expressional scope of love toward others, to secure a cradle of comfort, acquire competitiveness and for a myriad of other personal reasons. We all do this to some degree, right?
Despite current situations on this front, if one earnestly wanted to find the grandest definition and most appropriate scope of love on impartial terms, and desire to know the most beautiful implementation of love conceivable, God’s authority would be identified by reading and comprehending scripture. Then you might acknowledge that God is Love. The sword of the Spirit is plainly authoritative but you must see it for yourself.
An open door to Christianity. Believing in Christ Jesus is no more difficult than making an attitude adjustment or choosing a different view. This I have proved. If bowing down to the Lord requires hard scientific proof, then this is belief by force. Perhaps we actually reject Him. Atheism is fundamentally a power play, not a matter of evidence.
Science cannot prove the existence of things spiritual. We know this. Trusting Holy Scripture is as simple as believing who your parents are without demanding a DNA test. There is plainly no need to be afraid of being wrong. Concern yourself with things of greater significance. It is my testimony that artistic value is architected in the Word, value that cannot be mined in any other way.
Spiritual warfare begins after crossing the threshold. We struggle with spiritual immaturity as we discover that the Truth amplifies in practice and suppresses in sin.
“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparable great power for us to believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.” Ephesians 1:18-21 New International Version
Things exist and therefore truth exists. Truth must characterize authority and purpose to have any sort of durability. Anyway, this is how I comprehend truth metaphysically. As a side note I view the Holy Trinity similarly–the Father upholding authority, the Son with his creative “What Is”, and the Holy Ghost lording the articulated purpose. As once announced openly, the “Fruit of the Spirit” is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. More about that in the future.
Speaking of fruit, however, with tongue in cheek, fruit gelatin reminds me vividly of a real human crisis, a private and primal predicament that impacts both you and me. Objects of fruit set within a universe of gelatin. This gelatin equates to perceived truth and the fruit represents all the people who have ever lived. No two situations are the same. Our positions are exclusive because of our unique thinking; thus, we are scattered all over the place. Each one of us is different, not only by locality but in quality. And quality impacts that which is around us. We just want to know the truth dammit. This is one of humanity’s great common denominators. By design and physical makeup however we must rely upon faith, faith that being manufactured by reason within the limits of our isolated selves–the pillars of personal spirit and knowledge.
Humanity cannot grasp absolute proof. We cannot escape this universe of gelatin, but our position clearly impacts thoughts, decisions, and actions that lead to lessor or greater joy. It is personal spirit that sets us. But faith extends a certain freedom. Faith is the enabler that can be tested against our innate cravings to reimagine our mighty environment.
What is it that you crave? What is the course of your life? Let it be so.
Regardless of who we love, like, or otherwise, whomever crosses our path, I believe there is a single moral system that we all should commonly embody. For my continued education, His personification of Love is one of the many reasons why I trust in God.
