This is a hilarious video that I enjoyed very much.
The opening and ending are a little random, but everything else is worth watching!
And I forgot to mention earlier, I found this video reading from Living Journey.
Ever wonder why God, the most powerful and influential being the history of the Universe, does not speak openly with human beings? I have. And for the longest time I could not understand it.
With all the debates about whether or not God exists, whether He created the world or evolution did, or if Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, you have to wonder why He doesn’t go on Fox-News for 10 seconds and set the record straight. No more mystery. No more confusion. No more ACLU. No more garbage in our schools.
But then again, that’s the problem. If God did show Himself to all of humanity He would in effect remove our freewill. Think about it. Would Adam or Eve have eaten the fruit if God did not leave them alone at times?
Could mankind choose to not follow God if He was as obvious as the sun? If God is going to let us choose for ourselves to put faith in him, he must leave room for doubt. For how can one have faith without the ability to doubt?
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
This is probably Sunday-school level for some of you. But it was a revelation for me. Heheh. The way I feel about this was summed up nicely in a book by Lee Strobel, The Case for Faith.
God bless you all. I have been getting so many new readers and users lately it is amazing.
I need input from you guys.
Years ago, when I was only 8-9 years old, I would go out at night to a dock.
I would then take my shoes off, sit down on the edge, and believe.
I used to think that believing was faith. But that is not so.
I believed with all my heart that I would feel the water firm beneath my feet. I thought that by believing, I would have faith the size of a mustard seed.
Now this is my outlook on faith, in a nut-shell.
FAITH is believing God will do what he said he would.
BLIND-FAITH is believing God will do something he didn’t say he would.
FOOLISHNESS is believing God will do something he said he wouldn’t.
What are your thoughts? I want to hear some scripture from all of you.
