Hope Dims

“Hope is the only universal liar who never loses his reputation for veracity.” ~Robert G. Ingersoll

This will be a short blog.

This night the blogmaster finds himself in a state of mind where the pursuit of hope in humankind that was his motivation many envied dimmed somewhat. Without the need to be prolix a few words serve to diagnose his emotional lethargy : –  IMF, Crime, Political Class, DEBT, Yardfowls, Bigots, Education, NCDs, Potholes, Corruption, Cricket, Independence, Children and Ring a Ring o’ Roses.

Excuse the blogmaster this one time …

  • RE GP dont care how many religious scholars u read they are all humans and subject to error
    BUT GUESS WHAT THEY HAVE STUDIED AND PRAYED FOR UNDERSTANDING EACH ONE OF THEM
    THEY ARE NOT MORONIC MEN WHO SPOUT RUBBISH LIKE THE AVERAGE BU BIBLE ILLITERATE

    5O YEARS OF INTENSE BIBLE STUDY TO PRODUCE STRONGS CONCORDANCE
    50 YEARS OF INTENSE BIBLE STUDY TO TO PRODUCE VINES WORD STUDIES

    50 PLUS YEARS OF TALKING SHIT AND ASKING AND SEEKING AND NOT STUDYING TO PRODUCE A TYPICAL BU BIBLE ILLITERATE

    RE Some of what can not be understood in the bible is left to human intrepretation (having absolutely no proof)
    THAT IS NOT WHAT THE BIBLE TEACHES

    RE The story of the Day of Pentecost having tongues of fire falling on the apostles head cannot be explain logically but only as a transformation of the holy Ghost making its presence known to the apostles

    THE LEVEL OF YOUR IGNORANCE AND BIBLE ILLITERACY DEFIES LOGIC ALSO

    Understanding the word fire literally would have meant death or destruction upon whoever heads the tongues of fire fell on

    IDIOT YOU READ ABOUT THE FIRE THAT MOSES SAW . IN MIDIAN WHAT DID IT DESTROY

    WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY ABOYT THE FIRES OF HELL? IDIOT!

    RE However the bible meaning or interpretation can only be accepted by Faith

    HOW CAN YOU ACCEPT SOMETHING BY FAITH THAT HAS NO MEANING MORON

    2 Timothy 3:16 TEACHES
    All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness

    ALL MEANS ALL
    HOW CAN IT BE PROFITABLE IF THE the bible meaning or interpretation can only be accepted by Faith AND NOT KNOWN, YA IDIOT

    SOME AFTER WORDS

    During every period of the “Dark Ages” there were in existence many Christians and many separate and independent Churches, some of them dating back to the times of the Apostles, which were never in any way connected with the Catholic Church. They always wholly rejected and repudiated the Catholics and their doctrines. This is a fact clearly demonstrated by credible history.
    These Christians were the perpetual objects of bitter and relentless persecution. History shows that during the period of the “Dark Ages,” about twelve centuries, beginning with A.D. 426, there were about fifty millions of these Christians who died martyr deaths. Very many thousands of others, both preceding and succeeding the “Dark Ages,” died under the same hard hand of persecution.
    These Christians, during these dark days of many centuries, were called by many different names, all given to them by their enemies. These names were sometimes given because of some specially prominent and heroic leader and sometimes from other causes; and sometimes, yea, many times, the same people, holding the same views, were called by different names in different localities. But amid all the many changes of names, there was one special name or rather designation, which clung to at least some of these Christians, throughout all the “Dark Ages,” that designation being “Ana-Baptist.” This compound word applied as a designation of some certain Christians was first found in history during the third century; and a suggestive fact soon after the origin of Infant Baptism, and a more suggestive fact even prior to the use of the name Catholic. Thus the name “Ana-Baptists” is the oldest denominational name in history.
    A striking peculiarity of these Christians was and continued to be in succeeding centuries: They rejected the man-made doctrine of “Infant Baptism” and demanded rebaptism, even though done by immersion for all those who came to them, having been baptized in infancy. For this peculiarity they were called “Ana-Baptists.”
    This, special designation was applied to many of these Christians who bore other nicknames; especially is this true of the Donatists, Paulicians, Albigenses and Ancient Waldenses and others. In later centuries this designation came to be a regular name, applied to a distinct group. These were simply called “Ana- Baptists” and gradually all other names were dropped. Very early in the sixteenth century, even prior to the origin of the Lutheran Church, the first of all the Protestant Churches, the word “ana” was beginning to be left off, and they were simply called “Baptists.”
    Into the “dark ages” went a group of many churches which were never in any way identified with the Catholics. Out of the “dark ages” came a group of many churches, which had never been in any way identified with the Catholics.
    The following are some of the fundamental doctrines to which they held when they went in: And the same are, the fundamental doctrines to which they held when they came out: And the same are the fundamental doctrines to which they now hold.

    FUNDAMENTAL DOCTRINES

    A spiritual Church, Christ its founder, its only head and law giver.
    Its ordinances, only two, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. They are typical and memorial, not saving.
    Its officers, only two, bishops or pastors and deacons; they are servants of the church.
    Its Government, a pure Democracy, and that executive only, never legislative.
    Its laws and doctrines: The New Testament and that only.
    Its members. Believers only, they saved by grace, not works, through the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit.
    Its requirements. Believers on entering the church to be baptized, that by immersion, then obedience and loyalty to all New Testament laws.
    The various churches–separate and independent in their execution of laws and discipline and in their responsibilities to God–but cooperative in work.
    Complete separation of Church and State.
    Absolute Religious liberty for all.

    QUESTION

    As one of the wise ones in the BU family are you able to share the recommended way to debate matters based on ones ‘faith’?

    ANSWER

    For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

    14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

    15 And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

    16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?

    17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. ROMANS 10-13-17

    HOW CAN HE KNOW? WHEN HE HAS NOT LEARNED?
    HOW CAN HE KNOW? WHEN HE HAS NOT HAD PROPER TEACHERS?
    HOW CAN HE KNOW? WHEN HE HAS NOT HEARD OR HEEDED THE WORD WHICH ISTHE BASIS OF FAITH?

    We have people that want to believe but they are not able to discern a clear path to do so, agnostics they are called. The blogmaster’s view – simple perhaps – is that unless there is a personal experience with their God to facilitate that leap of faith all arguments about the Bible in such a context become irrelevant. There is the second scenario that has a root in interpretation of the word mixed with how one has been enculturated.

  • Whatever people are searching for can be found in the Bible.

    There are numerous options.

    I started with a Gideon Bible that was given me at HC.

    Most of my reading I did at University!!

    What I like about that Bible is it has a list of verses you can read if you need help with life’s various problems.

    Nowadays it is easy to google.

    So for instance, if someone wanted to know what the Bible says about faith, just google the question.

    https://dailyverses.net/faith/kjv

    Seventy six verses quoted …. the first one will blow your mind!!

    “Therefore I say unto you, What things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Mark 11:24 | KJV |”

    Read and see how the Bible could make such a promise.

    There are plenty churches, free, pop in a Sunday and just listen.

    People will know others whose faith is strong, sit down and talk.

    People could also approach GP properly and ask for help.

    I don’t think you will find many people whose knowledge of the Bible matches his.

    The real problem is Christianity has really been downplayed so people are scared to ask for fear of being seen to go against the norm … or look foolish!!

    If you want to know, search for answers.

    Forget about you think others think about you!!

    I seem to remember the last instalment I got was in second form, 1969 … then nothing!!

    Maybe it is still taught in schools, maybe not.

    I remember learning that Jesus sent his apostles to spread the Word.

    I remember learning about their progress and the various churches they formed and I remember learning about their trials and persecutions.

    The martyrdom of Stephen sticks in my mind.

    I remember learning about Saul, his persecutions of the Christians, and his conversion and then Paul’s travels and letters to the various churches.

    For some reason I also remember clearly being taught this verse about what Jesus advised his Apostles to do if they were not received.

    So I looked it up online and here is the verse and the one that follows which we did not get in second form.

    Matthew 10:14 KJV

    14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.

    15Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

    As a child the verse seemed so logical, simple and just … it just stuck.

    Little was I taught of Sodom and Gomorrha back then!!!

    Guess the gory details were kept from young minds.

    I realise now, 50 years later that this was the beginning of the Trail of Blood I learnt about recently.

    Nice to connect the dots between what I learnt as a boy and now learn as a man.

    Thanks

    Cant be two places at once in this finite form.

    The study of God and God’s Word and His Intent can be as simple as living The Lord’s Prayer as Kiki said where epiphany comes like Saul or by other more intense practices.

    A thing to note is that the Russian keyboard, while it may have the same number of keys as an American keyboard DOES NOT MEAN IF I PRESS THE EXACT KEYS WITH THE LETTERS ” C, A, T” on the Russin keyboard the resulting combination is an animal that mews!

    Transliteration of faith is not achievable merely by reading The Word so we have to fight with the old man who is inside the ole man when you encounter yourself and others who are lesser than ourself.

    In his moments John reverts to a remembrance from Canon Ivor Jones which contextualizes his instruction in the Word 50 years ago. And while tomorrow he will put on His Quaker armour, pause and examine this single moment of unfeigned recollection and assimilation of the Word.

    That is representative of the moments that we all should seek to secure with such frequency.

    Indeed this is an oxymoron to come from the very ole man who, in a few days, will take back up the weapons of psychographic WARFARE and let loose pun Mugabe and her Sandpit imps.

  • There is nothing simple to understand from any kind of literature when it contains controversial content which was written thousands of years ago and where There was no source or way of knowing the truth
    All we are left with are different opinins and intrepretation known as fact
    An example are the many past historians who wrote the history of slavery and the trade for what has turned out to be a twist on the truth
    The bible in my mind easily falls into such category in some aspect
    The bible would continue to be a place from whence controversy is rooted and shall remain

    YOU MIGHT FIND THIS INTERESTING
    You have probably heard of the great giant Goliath, but did you know that King David battled many other Philistine giants? According to Scripture, these huge men belonged to a race of titans known as the Raphah. The Book of Samuel preserves each one of these titan’s names. Amazingly, each name has a specific meaning in Hebrew which has a special connection to David himself…
    Five Strange Biblical Names
    According to 2 Samuel 21, David and his men successfully defeated five Philistine giants. The name of the first, Goliath, comes from the Hebrew word galut (גלות) meaning “exile”. The name of the second, Ishbi-Benob, means “mountain dweller”. The third, Saph (סף), means “threshold”. The fourth, Lahmi, means “warrior”. The fifth is nameless, but he comes from the city of Gath (גת), meaning “winepress”. Fascinatingly, the meanings of these five Hebrew names encapsulate David’s personal history.

    The giants in David’s life
    At the outset of his career, David was in “exile,” forced to flee Saul. Eventually, David took the throne and moved his capital to Jerusalem, becoming a “dweller on the mountain” known as Zion. Next, he erected the tabernacle, beyond whose “threshold” the Ark was deposited. In the latter half of his life, David was a valiant “warrior” and endured a merciless rebellion by his son Absalom during which he was “pressed” to the limits.

    Unlock The Deepest Mysteries of Scripture
    What at first seems to be an unimportant list of five peculiar giants, turns out to be a fascinating summary of David’s life; his progression from a shepherd to the greatest king of Israel. But if you don’t understand the original Hebrew language of the Bible, this level of meaning is inaccessible.

    A FEW YEARS AGO I HEARD ONE OF THE ELDERS IN MY ASSEMBLY TEACH ON THESE GIANTS

    Thou hast done me a disservice kind sir.

    This morning prior to leaving the house I hailed you and said

    “…@ Dr. GP the Theologian and seeking disciples..”

    The first part of my salutation was a respectful observation, on my part, of my estimation of your knowledge of The Bible and coterminous reading.

    The second part was an adjectival verb which referred to the few who, as brimlers and class idiots ( as the Honourable Blogmaster called them a few weeks ago) come to the rum shop to listen to you.

    So when in future submissions you see the Theologian you will know de ole man is referring to you.

  • 1 Corinthians 13:13 King James Version (KJV)

    13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

    2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

    3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

    4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

    5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

    6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

    7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

    8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

    9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

    10 But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

    11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

    12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

    13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.
