Growing up(as a child) & going to church & hearing the Ten Commandments were all good things. Christianity, obedience & forgiveness went hand in hand with the God-man from the region of Galilee.
Yet if the opportunity came, it seemed/felt a good thing to get out of going to church, much like getting out of school or a stuffy occasion where children were often oppressed & could be made to wear nice clothes & shoes that didn’t conform to the then hippy ideas of freedom…Much like adults getting holidays from work “woohoo” or heaven forbid (can I say that) a break from the kids.
We all want to break free but only with truth can we know what is good & what is evil. Balance & hope & good times equate to nothing if you don’t know what truth is. Your good could be evil & your balance could be darkness personified without truth. To find your way in this world could amount to going round & round in circles or squares as you seek to triangulate a path on obscure background waves.
Children need Jesus, adults need Jesus, old people need Jesus, confused people need Jesus, intelligent people need Jesus, and society needs Jesus, lest we pave our way to our own paradise that has nothing to do with truth & everything to do with the lie of the devil with his artificial intelligence & doctrines of twist.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
Jesus is a timeless truth & a priceless treasure & not to good to be true.
Matt 13:45-46 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls.When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
Some things are outstandingly unequal & unique
no matter how much similarity may be read into it.
