Have you ever felt so sure about something and then discover you're wrong?
While Jesus is clear, concise, compelling, commanding, and concluding, He's, uh, God.
That's why I'm praising Him for being Savior as well as Lord.
Sure, I'm with the God-said-it-I-believe-it-that-settles-it remnant among mainliners.
Yet it's unforgivable - yes, unforgivable (go to your concordance) - to presume, "I know that's what Jesus and the Bible say, but I think..."
Talk about being too big for your...
The flaw in hermeneutics is humanity.
The Word is pure and perfect in every way.
We're not; and I'm convinced too many of us confuse holy inspirations with, uh, unholy indigestions.
Knowing we tend to substitute me, myself, and I for the divine trio as attested in Holy Scripture when wills - His versus ours - aren't in consonance, I've learned, grudgingly, that I'm often wrong in my human application of divine revelation which has prompted me to say increasingly, "I may be wrong..."
That's why I'm in a few very significant accountability groups.
I don't know it all, get lots wrong too often, and never dispute the vertical relationship.
And, again, that's why I'm praising Him for being Savior as well as Lord.
Of course, if you're always right, you're, uh, nuts.
I thought about that when JM, despite rebuttals and rationalizations and rejoinders and other euphemistic ways in the past 24 hours to say he didn't do what he did when he decided it wouldn't be politically expedient to meet with Billy but then decided he should change his mind because it could be but then explained that while acknowledging...
Help us, Jesus!
Is this really the best that we've got?
Is it really too late to consider someone else before actually, gulp, sigh, @#$%, I can't say it, ele...one of 'em?
BHO is totally predictable.
He has the most left-wing voting record of anyone in the Senate.
He's just saying nothing eloquently right now to get dolts who clamor for change without a hint of the specifics to feel good about voting for someone whose voting record runs so far up against the mainstream that he makes HRC look like a drinking buddy near the coal mines.
JM is as predictable as the manager of the White Sox.
He changes more than the climate in Illinois.
One of my favorite saints said she's voting for him because he's pro-life; and I replied, "That was yesterday..."
So we can pick someone who's predictable but not particularly mainstream or unpredictable but kinda mainstream.
It almost makes one nostalgic for AG, JK, or even BC...in a worst case scenario kinda way.
A professor in the South responded to KDXXXVII which had a lot of stuff about reconciling rules which are heeded if antagonists get their way: "The five steps of conflict in a church: (1) Something is wrong; (2) Someone is to blame; (3) The pastor is to blame; (4) The pastor must be removed; and (5) The pastor must be destroyed."
He went on, "I submit most people involved in conflict mediation, which rarely results in conflict resolution, have one primary concern: they don't want to be destroyed themselves; and if they can help the situation, fine, but it's really about what they want and how they feel and..."
Is he saying people are, uh, more selfish than selfless, uh, more about navel-gazing than discipleship?
So we're gonna end up voting for someone who we think is kinda like us.
I may be wrong, but I'm not too sure about my bets on who wins on 11/4 (see preceding KDs).
I thought I figured it out.
I may have thought wrong.
Thank You, Jesus, for being our Savior as well as Lord.
Blessings and Love!
