Preferring the IMPERSONAL Lie to the More PERSONAL TOUCH of the Truth

personal touch

“And no nation or tribe to my knowledge has not acknowledged that there are many invisible beings, and that they divide into good spirits and evil spirits, according to how they benefit man.”
Anne Rice, Witching Hour

The above quote was one of the subjects for a couple of discussions which occurred over the past six-eight months.

Actually, LONG after the original conversations had passed into memory, a question from the first get-together kept picking at the mind.

The question was originally posed DURING that discussion, which arose over the Anne Rice quote cited at the beginning of this piece.

If memory serves, the question arose during the following exchange.

“Rice basically said that ALL nations believed in spirits.  But she didn’t really address the United States, which OFFICIALLY doesn’t believe in such things EVEN THOUGH the media, science and entertainment  put out something almost DAILY which winks at the official position while saying “Hey!  Look at this!  Look at what I just found! What do you think of this?

“And the USA DOES believe in invisible beings–only they don’t call them “demons” or “angels” or “spirits.”  They call them “germs” and “microbes” and ‘viruses.”

It was at this point that someone posed a VERY interesting question which most in attendance had never heard before.

“Why do you think that is?”

“What?”

“Why do you think that is?  Why do the powers-that-be condemn one group of invisible beings while giving the okay to another group?”

AT THE TIME, an answer was hastily cobbled together which emphasized the world (and the USA’s) need for deception.

BUT, as the question kept nagging weeks and months later, that answer didn’t appear to be very satisfying.

After some further thoughts revisiting the topic, it was decided that, while the original answer contained the truth (“Yes, the world does try to deceive–for many different reasons–about a GREAT many different things.”), it did not get to the HEART of the matter.

The reason why most people will believe stories about the BILLIONS of little invisible beings called “germs” CRAWLING over everybody and everything BUT have doubts about those invisible beings which mankind has had experiences with for thousands of years?

The BILLIONS of crawling little invisible beings called “germs”?

There is something IMPERSONAL about a “germ.” 

Some “germs” supposedly make one sick, while others supposedly make cottage cheese.  But regardless, in all of the stories told about “germs,” “microbes” or “viruses,” there’s NOTHING PERSONAL in it. Those little invisible beings CAN make one sick: but it’s just what they do.

Nothing personal.

Nothing to get upset about.

Pass the bleach and alcohol and let’s have a party!

But other good and bad INVISIBLE spiritual beings?

They most probably know your name.

They sound like they are well acquainted with humans.

Some reports have said that these invisible beings–especially the ones recorded in God’s Word–have memories.

That’s personal.

That usually makes one UNCOMFORTABLE.

As someone one remarked, “Just thinking about it makes my skin crawl.”

And so man MUCH prefers the IMPERSONAL lies about “germs” crawling all over EVERYTHING–and EVERYBODY, which SOMETIMES make people sick and other times, make people hungry.

Because that little story is so much more comfortable and easier to handle than the TRUTH of God’s Word–which makes a great many men UNCOMFORTABLE.

Because it is the TRUTH.

Besides, it is so much more easier to exorcise the correct kind of little invisible beings with a bottle of bleach than it is to change the way one lives one’s life.

DOES the reader claim to believe the Bible?

WHAT type of invisible beings does the reader believe exist?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
