When I Was a Child …

 

I Spoke as a Child …

I Walked as a Child …

I Thought as a Child …

But When I Became a Man, I Put Away Childish Things …?

 

As Mr. Obama put it, he believes thatAmerica is no longer a Christian nation.

 

He put that up before his first term.

 

Afterwards, to date …his administration has indeed put away a lot of things.

 

Since then, many things have changed.

 

Yet, hope is increasingly absent …making for an increasingly stronger spiritual vacumm.

 

And in this emphasis upon maintaining …or growing out a spiritual void …America has increasingly embraced childish things …all the more.

Thus, more so…more and more  gravitate to blindly refute justice …giving up on the very notion of  justice  in child-like, pouting manners …those beyond habit …nature and character.

Next stop …a hopeless destiny to seal a most  uncertain and unsavory fate.

 

 

My Post Ferguson notes:

Scolder General, Eric Holder …? Really…!

Don’t bother me with the facts …my mind’s made up.

Justice Delayed …Justice served…?

Does justice reflect the spirit of the law, or …the mindless senses …?

Is justice blind …blind to culture …race …creed …and religion …?

I think not, but …consider this …

What is Justice if issued and delivered merely to serve the Emotions… those driven with the body’s members …those which, like the 5-senses …are driven and fed by the eyes, the ears, the nose …the taste of one’s tongue …the lust and desires of the flesh?

To answer arrogantly, I might answer with …; But I am above that. After all, I am human and am given to  know better …capable of distinguishing the  difference between thoughtless reaction …and a well thought out (planned) response.

However, I must consider the reality of my  human condition’s frailties.

For the thing that I would do …I do not …

…and,

…the thing that I would not do; that I do.

From within this context, if I am honest with myself; I am given to realize I am much less in stature than my vain imaginations would otherwise mislead me to believe, and in this wise …I must cry out; “…

Oh wretched man that I am…!

Who will save me from this pitiful state…?”

For I seem to always find myself waring and wrestling with my members… my emotions no less?

Who then, will free me of this conundrum….?

Certainly not American justice.

After all, according to my so-called commander in chief; America is no longer a Christian nation.

Therefore, ask not for whom the bell tolls.

It tolls for thee.cou

Consider this, and may the God of Peace …not the GOP, give you peace.

Desire the stability of His truth and flee the instability of all other forms of ignorance.

And as Joan Rivers was known for saying so often; “…Oh, GROW UP…!:

I say this because …after all, all choices bare certain consequences.

Amen.

 

Romans 13 New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)

Obey Those in Authority

13  All of you must be willing to obey completely those who rule over you. There are no authorities except the ones God has chosen. Those who now rule have been chosen by God. 2  So when you oppose the authorities, you are opposing those whom God has appointed. Those who do that will be judged.

3  If you do what is right, you won’t need to be afraid of your rulers. But watch out if you do what is wrong! You don’t want to be afraid of those in authority, do you? Then do what is right. The one in authority will praise you. 4  He serves God and will do you good. But if you do wrong, watch out! The ruler doesn’t carry a sword for no reason at all. He serves God. And God is carrying out his anger through him. The ruler punishes anyone who does wrong.

5  You must obey the authorities. Then you will not be punished. You must also obey them because you know it is right.

6  That’s also why you pay taxes. The authorities serve God. Ruling takes up all their time. 7  Give to everyone what you owe. Do you owe taxes? Then pay them. Do you owe anything else to the government? Then pay it. Do you owe respect? Then give it. Do you owe honor? Then show it.
