The Charlie Charlie Reaction

Last week was a very interesting week in Barbados and the Caribbean region. First it was the Bucket Challenge and although not achieving 7-day wonder status in Barbados the reaction by the society to the Charlie Charlie Challenge has given an insight that is scary for the few sensible individuals left.

Human beings based on heritage practice different beliefs and are free to do so for the most part. If people want to believe that Charlie Charlie Challenge is the key to a portal to the other side where demonic forces exist so be it. BU is concerned when the state responds with positions giving validity to such beliefs. We still operate on the basis of separation of state and the religious right? Let us ignore the gibberish spewed by the folks from the Pentecostal and other denominations. Hell, even Roger Husbands got into the act warning Barbadians to keep their children away from the demonic universe which Charlie Charlie Challenge opened a door.

There is analysis by Snopes.com – an Internet website specializing in filtering fact from fiction – suggesting the Charlie Charlie Challenge was a marketing campaign to promote the movie The Gallows. Instead of discussing Charlie Charlie Challenge how about substituting the discussion with how ignorant and gullible a people we have become, so easily manipulated. The politicians and religious zealots know this only too well.

    why don’t you answer the questions rather than worry about whether Bush Tea is a son of the Devil or of God? …that is not your problem …or your business…

    What did Jesus say about being the first of MANY sons of God?
    What did he say about going to prepare a place? …and coming back for others?
    What did he say about the ‘many mansions’ in his father’s house?
    Why do they need more than three…? or do you think Jesus is Sir COW? 🙂

    Don’t you feel like an idiot insulting a lowly seed picking bushman – while avoiding simple questions that EVERYONE wants to have answered?

    ….and no long winded copy and paste Greek shiite designed to send us to sleep with trivia…simple answers to these simple questions…

    BUSH TEA, The above questions, have already being answered years ago; YOUR perverted, convoluted, satanically inspired interpretation, of God’s Word, and what JESUS taught and meant, IS* utter falsity, hogwash, BUSH TEA!!!

    “DO NOT give what is HOLY to the DOGS, nor cast your Pearls before SWINE, lest they trample them under their feet…” Matt: 7:6) (Exactly what BUSH TEA et al do!)

    “The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of LIGHT. But if your eye ( BUSH TEA!) IS BAD, your whole body will be FULL OF DARKNESS (Exemplified by YOU BUSH TEA!) If therefore the light that IS IN YOU (BUSH TEA!) IS DARKNESS, (As Satan’s SON!) how GREAT IS THAT DARKNESS! ( Matt: 6: 22,23)

    “But If anyone IS IGNORANT, let him be IGNORANT.” ( I Cor. 14:38).

  • Bushie,

    I am not a ritualistic person. Surprised? You would be. If you ask my church members you would hear that I’m a bit of a misfit. That’s because I believe that going through endless rituals as we do often numbs one’s mind to the meaning of the exercise. Often persons believe that having dutifully conducted their ritual the worship of God is complete. The real worship takes place in our daily lives and involves exercising our faith to make a difference to somebody in the world.

    When are you going to learn that you cannot fit me into any box that you have in your possession?

    Did I mention that the bushman who stepped in his own shi’ite did this in blissful ignorance and paraded around BU all the while asking, “What’s that smell?’ LOL

  • Why must mankind first Repent of all SIN, in order to be Saved?

    “For ALL have SINNED and fall short of the Glory of God.” ( Rom. 3:23)

    “For the wages (result of SIN) is DEATH (Eternal separation from God, in conscious misery!) but the GIFT of God IS* eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ( Rom: 6:23)

    That’s why: “For God so LOVED the world (mankind) that He gave His only begotten Son, ( Jesus Christ) that whoever (Anyone! All people!) BELIEVES in Him (Surrenders in Trust and Faith) should NOT perish ( Go to Hell!) but have EVERLASTING Life (With Him in Glory!) (John :3:16)

    One does not have to be a Bible scholar, or an exegete in Greek to be Saved,

    “For with the heart one BELIEVES unto righteousness, and with the MOUTH confession IS* made unto salvation.” ( Romans: 10: 10).

    The Gospel of The Lord Jesus Christ, is straightforward enough, that the most simple-minded, and uneducated can be Saved! It is the intellectual minded, that sometimes are the most stubborn, and obstinate to be Saved!

    Can we now focus on the questions of doctrine?
    Surely you must agree that we have a serious problem – where Jesus is clearly saying one thing…while you, GP and wunna churches are saying something diametrically opposite…do you agree?

    You remember when the same Jesus was twelve years old he went on BU (at that time it was the temple) and got into similar discussions with the Zoes and GPs of that day (LOL ..they were called Scribes and Pharisees or something so…)
    He had them in a spot of bother with his medium pace in-swingers too…

    Are you basically saying ‘Frig Jesus’ … cause he was no damn scholar – just a piece uh carpenter…?
    Is that it…?
    …and seriously…when Jesus died….what impact did THAT have on your Trinity? Perhaps the Father made an ‘acting appointment’ for those three days…. ??? is that it?

    Oh Wait…. last time you had started to explain that he was not really a man, and that he therefore did NOT really die…..hmmmm, but then all those scriptures which said that he did would need some serious exegesis…

    By your last comment we are back at the point where the question will be asked “by whose definition shall we define a fool”.

    Like

  • The Sensual Fool
    One who rejects the correction of parents or other authorities will become a sensual fool. This type of fool is identified in Scripture with the Hebrew word kecîyl (kess-EEL), which means “fat, i.e. stupid or silly.” The word denotes a person who seems determined to make wrong choices. He does not have a mental deficiency, but rather rejects the wisdom of God.

    The sensual fool’s focus is on that which brings him immediate pleasure. He glories in that of which he should be ashamed. “It is as sport to a fool [kecîyl] to do mischief … ” (Proverbs 10:23; see also Proverbs 13:19–20).

    A sensual fool is unreasonable. As a silly fool, his mouth got him into trouble. Now, as a sensual fool, his mouth gets him into more trouble. “A fool’s [kecîyl] lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes [blows]. A fool’s [kecîyl] mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul” (Proverbs 18:6–7).

    Scripture gives more warnings about the sensual fool than about any other type of fool. His motives and methods are subtle. He should be avoided, because those who follow him will be led astray. “… A companion of fools [kecîyl] shall be destroyed” (Proverbs 13:20). Severe punishment is prescribed for the sensual fool: “A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s [kecîyl] back” (Proverbs 26:3, see also Proverbs 19:29).

    The Scorning Fool
    The Hebrew word that denotes a “scorning fool” is lûwts (LOOTS). It means “to make mouths at, i.e. to scoff.” The scorning fool’s facial expressions communicate the disdain and contempt he has in his heart toward his authorities, including parents, civil authorities, and God.

    This type of fool not only has rejected truth; he also has embraced that which is abominable to God. Psalm 1:1 describes the progression of foolishness, referring to a man who first walks “in the counsel of the ungodly,” then stands “in the way of sinners,” and finally sits “in the seat of the scornful [lûwts].” The scorning fool utterly detests people and ideas that contradict his false thinking, and he expresses his scorn through derisive attitudes, behavior, and speech.

    The scorning fool turns a deaf ear to rebuke: “A wise son heareth his father’s instruction: but a scorner [lûwts] heareth not rebuke” (Proverbs 13:1; see also Proverbs 14:6). Those who attempt to lead the scorning fool away from the path of destruction that he seems determined to follow will suffer his wrath. “A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise” (Proverbs 15:12). “He that reproveth a scorner [lûwts] getteth to himself shame: … Reprove not a scorner [lûwts], lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee” (Proverbs 9:7–8).

    A scorner must be punished—for his own sake and for the sake of those whom he can potentially influence. “Smite a scorner [lûwts], and the simple [pethîy] will beware … ” (Proverbs 19:25). “When the scorner [lûwts] is punished, the simple [pethîy] is made wise … ” (Proverbs 21:11; see also Proverbs 22:10).

    The Steadfast Fool
    The most dangerous type of fool is a steadfast fool. The Hebrew word nâbâl (naw-BAWL), which means “stupid, wicked,” identifies this type of person. Elsewhere in the Old Testament, nâbâl also is translated as vile person.

    A steadfast fool totally rejects God and His ways. “The fool [nâbâl] hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good” (Psalm 14:1). This type of fool is self-confident and close-minded. He is his own god, freely gratifying his lower nature. It is his goal to draw as many others as possible into his evil ways. Attempts to reprove him will be futile and bring frustration to the one who tries to influence him. Only God can successfully reprove a steadfast fool.
