The Idol Threat

The idols of our lives do not have to be fixed carved images. They can be and mostly are figments of the imagination. What remains true is that they do not have the appendages of life and can only obtain animation by our thoughts. It cannot dust itself off, protect itself from robbers, speak its desires, or see its creator. Judge Alsup and Keller have an idol of their own making that sanctions and justifies their evil as justice. It is as spineless and wimpy as its creator and is evidence to this by its very existence. The living God Jehovah of Host is not a creation of man nor are His armies He can muster. He does not need my thoughts to become animated. He has His own will, body and power. He can defend Himself, speak and obtain His desires. He is the creator and not subject to men. Now the question I have to ask myself is can an idol be possessed with enough power to remove me from the hand of the living God? I don’t think so. To me it is an idle threat. If I find no reasonable remedy for this assault of stupidity I can rest in this simple comfort. “Your God is a pussy and mine is not, bring it on tough guy!"

RELIGIOUS NEUTRALISM

Refusing to join with others because of religious differences may be called, for lack of a better phrase, religious separatism, and this has prevented thousands of people from reaching the full potential of their struggle against the forces of totalitarianism. Yet, there is another phenomenon that is even more deadly. It is religious neutralism. This is the belief that, no matter how bad things are; there is nothing that mortal man can do about it. Everything is in the hands of God, and He will solve all problems when He is ready and we are worthy. Trying to bring about social, economic, or political reform with direct action is a waste of time. Operating on this conviction, people who should be in the forefront of the battle against evil are effectively neutralized by their own religions and fall to the sidelines while others fight the real battles of this world.

Religious neutralism can be found within all of the world’s spiritual philosophies. However, it is my opinion that it does not stem from theology but from a subconscious desire to rationalize an avoidance of conflict or controversy. Neutralists often quote passages from holy books to support their position, but it is easy to find other passages from the same books saying that man has an obligation to fight against evil. Neutralists ignore those passages and focus only on those that seem to justify inaction and temporary safety. Many spiritually minded people are drawn into this because it allows them to avoid the riggers of resistance and, at the same time, it bestows upon them an aura of righteousness. Instead of seeing themselves as shirking the most important challenge of their lives, they can assume the mantle of holiness and wisdom. These people are precisely the ones who should be in the forefront of opposition to tyranny, but they have been neutralized by fear in the disguise of spirituality.

neo,

blah, blah, blah, blah.

Sure do trust them and I'm not a mindless robot either. Let it play out and remember it's not the end of the world, doomsday as you would propose for Dorean clients.

Relax dude, life is too short.

Oh and by the way, get a life. Posting on blogs seems to be your anonymous life's passion.

You will know them by their fruit

(Again, could you imagine Jesus before Pilot uttering such words? If God's word lives in you Kurt is 100% false. Be Berean and search for your self.)

GEE WHIZ NEMO, EVEN JUSTICE666 CALLED ME A THIRD GRADER. YOU STOOPED TO ONE CLASS LOWER THAN HE?

BY THE WAY, "LUCK" HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. FOR SOMEONE WITH AN IMAGINITIVE MINE AS YOURS, SURELY YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR WORDS A LITTLE BETTER.

THAT IS SO TRUE. I GET TIRED OF ALL THE SO CALLED RELIGIOUS and saved PEOPLE SAYING "OH IT WILL HAPPEN IF IT'S GOD'S WILL & if it doesn't happen, then, it isn't God's will. Or they somehow justify even stupid & bad things as God's will, when God didn't necessarily have anything to do with the outcome or event & God probably didn't want those things to happen anyway. You can't reach people like that in most cases. They are beyond hope.

The fact of the matter is that you can't become Godly people without great works & great faith. "Faith without works is dead." Jesus said, "Come follow me." Not sit on your ass of mere belief & savor your ritual of salvation that makes it sure. Most of the Christians out there are saved in their mind. Their salvation was a mere event in their life, not a process of hard work & nothing can move them from their salvation, so they think. This just makes most Christians lazy people, satisfied where they are in life. Jesus also said: Math 5: 48 "Be ye therefore perfect, as your Father in Heaven is perfect." How can you become perfect from a mere ritualistic even in your life?

NO I CAN'T, BECAUSE PILOT WAS NO THREAT TO HIM. BUT I CAN VISUALIZE CHRIST WITH A WHIP THROWING OUT THE MONEY CHANGERS IN THE TEMPLE, KICKING ASS THE WHOLE WAY, AS HE IS THROWING OVER THE TABLES & YELLING AT THEM THAT THEY HAVE CREATED A DEN OF INIQUITY & CALLING THEM THIEVES. I CAN ALSO VISUALIZE HIM AT THE 2ND COMING THROWING OUT FIRE FROM HEAVEN & BURNING ALL THE UNGODLY. FRUIT, DO YOU HAVE A GOOD FIRE INSURANCE POLICY, BY THE WAY?

gringo, this is just speculation, but it is probably a conditional guilty plea, meaning the govt has to accept other things if it is to accept the guilty pleas, just a guess.
