The Word ‘God’ A ‘Contranym’

It is not enough to call it a revelation. Learning that what you’ve been taught about something that should be a source of guidance, strength, serenity and hope was distorted. Distorted by no other reason because to live up to it doesn’t promise enough affection amongst others. Others that are all too eager to have others join their failures.
Failures of character or belief that living in a way of knowing what is right and what is wrong requires no daily conscience adjustment. That is why most people avoid the rigorous growth demanded of them to corral their devilish nature. Instead they actively succumb to the task of assembling what they feel they possess of value and submit to negotiating their own Faustian bargain; although knowing all too well the only valuable thing evil wants is their soul.
While we marvel at the sheer vastness of the numbers of folks actively deciding to be fools; we always exclude ourselves from being caught up so quickly alongside them fools. My belief, because I’ve lived it, is right and wrong shouldn’t require a daily recalibration based on which option would bring you the most fortune or the least condemnation.
Time I’m afraid never waits for your decision in those moments, so it lets’ you choose through the double-minded lens of distorted reasoning. When that happens the choice illuminates everything those around you need to know about you. Observe for yourself is my admonishment. Choose wisely is the saying right? Check out Hebrews 13:8 to know what it looks like when you decide who you want to be.
Trickster: Edition Three: ‘The Book of Man’ – Love Only Those That Love You
Let’s get right to it. From the Authorized King James version of the Holy Bible. Saint Luke 6:32…For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. My my my, isn’t it obvious to spiritual people that these so-called Christians never read that verse? I was looking at a clip of U.S. Rep. Jayapal being talked down to by CNN host Dana Bash that Hamas raping Israeli women justifies Israel killing every Palestinian civilian they can.
Dana Bash didn’t say that, but that’s what she was trying to make Rep. Jayapal concede. Because Hamas murdered and raped scores of Israeli citizens, it is okay to kill Palestinian civilians. These news media people are responsible for what they say too. I don’t care what their network bosses want them to say. Me, Mr. Moseley, I would tell them that there is a difference. Innocent civilians are not fair game because terrorists of a sworn adversary, who also just happen to be Palestinians, make them also responsible for the atrocities of Hamas.
U.S. Representative Jayapal is a human being that should be lauded as an example of personal truth. Why do we all, human beings, take 20 steps back, or backslide as the Holy Bible states, when we know to call the truth as it is. Israel knows they are ‘degrading’ their own nation by just destroying everything in sight in the Gaza Strip.
‘Only care about people that care about me’, that’s what we say and believe in America isn’t it? That’s why I call out every so-called Christian I see talking out their double-minded mouth. That’s not how it’s supposed to be. It can’t keep happening like this.
I was going to place my next statement in my retelling of Black History as it has propelled my life to moral clarity. The human beings that have been critical to my certainty of moral clarity have been 90% Black Women. White women I would give another 7%. Men I would assign that last 3%. Black women have scolded me, purged my sins, indoctrinated my empathy and reasoning, driven my compacity to forgive, and cultivated the love I have for all human beings as I did receive the gift of spirituality from my mother (in defiance of her husband, my father who was a cruel man).
I must say this as a precaution to those trying to read the Holy Bible for the first time. Do it slowly. I recommend Saint Luke Chapter 6. I believe it has everything in it the Holy Father needs you to know. Wow, even I was overwhelmed reading it again to just write one verse for this post.
Also loyal readers, tell everybody you know that you point true North to www.landcause.com to read one of my favorite posts, ‘How to Degrade An Organization’. It never seems to get old. It’s certainly timely for the Middle East now.
Look, let me say this again as clearly as I can. No one gets a pass in judgment. So if you think there is a race or a people, a culture, a sex, a human orientation that should be excluded from living up to decency and order. Stop! America, Israel, Russia, China, countries of Europe and all over the world. Nobody gets to do whatever they want and the world excludes this country or that country because we feel sorry about their plight.
Every people, race, color, sex and origin have had tragedies inflicted upon it. I don’t give no one a pass because ‘all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God’. So I expect nothing less of my leaders in America calling Israel to task for the outrageous numbers of Palestinian civilian deaths.
‘Two wrongs don’t make a right’ nor does ‘Loving only those that love you stops the madness’. You’re leaders Israel! Like it or not you’re the one with the most power! Figure it out and stop this senseless cycle of killing!
