WHY NOT BE LIKE THE BLUE ANGELS WHEN IT COMES TO THE BIBLE?
Do you know how all of these people did all of these wonderful things? They studied and practiced long hard hours. Why don’t we see the same things in the Christian Churches?
I have yet to see a person in the pulpit that can put the Word together. By that I mean that they can explain the seeming contradictions. They wallow in tradition and the trends of the hour rather than the knowledge and wisdom of eternity.
A couple of events happened in our town that were really something. One was an air show featuring the Blue Angels the other was a clinic on training and riding horses.
The air show was something to behold. Men and wonem in acrobatic planes and jets doing rolls and spins and stall outs and loop-de-loos and and and… gosh it was something. That wasn’t even the Blue Angels! They came out and flew for over an hour of non stop excitement. It was absolutely remarkable how precise those men flew. A few feet apart and at speeds of over 450 miles per hour, incredible. The horse clinic was almost as impressive.
My daughter and I are working on getting better at riding and horse knowledge so we went to a clinic. Boy O boy some of the horses that were in the first class were nuts. One wanted to run people over and had a attitude that wouldn’t stop. Another liked to kick and strike AND run its owner over. But the instructor of the course kept every body safe and got the horses turned around. By the end of the class the horses were polite, respectful and sedate. If you have ever been around horses that are disrespectful and they have owners that don’t know what they are doing then the horses usually end up hurting the owner. But this, just like the air show, was a site to behold. A man literally saving peoples lives by teaching them how to control their horses. Do you know how all of these people did all of these wonderful things? They studied and practiced long hard hours. Why don’t we see the same things in the Christian Churches?
I have yet to see a person in the pulpit that can put the Word together. By that I mean that they can explain the seeming contradictions. They wallow in tradition and the trends of the hour rather than the knowledge and wisdom of eternity. These people are blind leaders leading the blind. What we have now is an attack on Christianity world wide. It will be justified in the years to come because of the inaccuracies that these people from the pulpit spew. Don’t get me wrong, many are good meaning people BUT they are misguided. There is no excuse, though, because the information is there for them to learn but they are stuck in tradition and the dogma of their respective denominations.
The Chruch members are not guiltless in this, either. God calls unto them to renew their minds and study to show themselves approved unto God by rightly dividing the Word of Truth (the Bible) and yet how many people can name the books of the Bible? How many people can open the Bible to James or Leviticus or Ezra? They are the blind being led by the blind.
It takes study to pass a drivers licence test. It takes study to learn how to cook, sew, fix a car, do carpentry or run a computer or even the remote for the TV yet, people think they can go get a Jesus fix every Sunday without even camparing what the minister, pastor or priest says to what God says in his word. Well, I can tell you that the financial and economic problems that we face as a nation and in Western Civilization are symptoms of walking away from God. They are symptoms of sharlitons and frauds writing Bibles, that hold their interpretation rather than an honest interpretation, that work to further their agenda. These problems are symptoms of Christians being dull and non-responsive to evil and wickedness. What evil and wickedness? How about a handful of men destroying the world financial markets. How about big business pandering sex to our elementary and high school children. How about the people that should be telling people that there is 70% infection rate of sexually transmitted deseases among “sexually active” americams? Do you want me to continue? OK, how about gambling that takes everything and gives back little. It destroys families and lives. It is contrary to God and His Word and yet you accept it as entertainment. It is far more damaging than anybody thinks.
Yep, those Blue Angel pilots were really something. If the men in the pulpit put the same effort into their chosen profession this world would be a much better place right now.
