Things That Go Bump in the Night

 
To my “I am not weird” post below, the little troll hit his paste button saying yes you are.  Guy Faulkes responded : “No Blogger, you are not weird. You merely talk of things which many people are uncomfortable discussing.”

Guy, there are three groups I know I make  uncomfortable:


1.  Some Christians have sibling rivalry.  They say, “It is not fair that the Father shows favoritism to my sibling and not to me.

2.  Then there are the unbelievers.  In the quiet of the night, they ponder “What if there really is a God who communicates directly with us?  Where does that leave me?

3.  Then there are those riddled with unclean spirits.  They typically fulminate.

How do I know this?  Because I have been all three at one time or another in my spiritual journey.  Also, I have seen them all many times in my psychological practice.

Little troll before you yell Schizie, take a step back. You are about to trash all the writers of the Bible, including all the disciples–the great saints and the little ones down through time–the little mountain preacher down the road who tells you “God has called me to preach.” You are even getting ready to diss the Lord Himself. And certainly you do not want to lose your blessing “the joys of those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, . ., or join in with mockers.” Ps 1:1 NLT

I'll take my chances.

God has called on me to call you blasphemers an false prophets. You have fallen under the will of Satan himself and confuse dark forces with those of peace and light.

You are not so righteous. Self-serving and delusional, but not righteous. You will stand in judgement before God Almighty for a thorough accounting. You will be surprised by His verdict. God is not an American or a Republican. Repent!

This will be a tough Christmas season. The Taliban Leftists like Anonymous 3:26 PM will be busy tearing down Nativity scenes and statues of Jesus and Mary. They appear to hate them as much as the Confederate Army and Christopher Columbus.
Read Anonymous's first sentence second paragraph... he must be hearing voices.

Goofus brings up an interesting point. Does God use him as a teaching aid to influence people not to act as he does? After all, the law of averages would seem to require that Goofus be right at least once in a while, but he is never right. Of course, he can and does say the same thing about the conservatives, but he would never have thought of it originally.

If you consider this as a possibility, Goofus is the best argument against free will that I could think of. No one would willingly act as he does. Then the question arises is he influenced by the Almighty or teh dark one?

I have no idea what voices you're hearing but if those voices are telling you Trump is a decent human being, it's likely Satan.

"Follow these basic rules be kind to fellow human beings, work for justice and leave the world better tha you found it. "

In other words, support Trump.

By calling your fellow Americans bigots, racists, homophobes, xenophobes, sexists when they don't agree with you politically. Chastise the Republican for balking at a question about accepting the outcome of the election and then don't accept the results yourself. Leave the Middle East in political ruin and work against Israel. Fund the poor unemployed terrorist countries.

It's not that I don't agree with you politically, I attach those descriptors to you because you have demonstrated that's who you are.
