A Winding Conversation Can Often Cover a LOT of Territory

When one begins a discussion, one often does NOT know where that discussion will go, lead to OR wind up.

And so it was that a recent discussion started nowhere in particular, COVERED A LOT OF TOPICS and ended up nowhere in particular.

Very often, such conversations will hold the interest of all parties involved (this particular conversation involved TWO people) as long as the discussion lasts OR as long as the time allows before other matters intrude.

The discussion began on a trip to a local Walmart and the opening topics included WHAT WAS TO BE PURCHASED BY EACH PERSON and WHY.

It then moved onto something completely different: Is toothpaste an insidious scheme designed to gradually destroy the teeth of all who use it?  This particular topic was a continuation of a subject that had been touched upon a few weeks earlier.  One of the participants in that earlier conversation has done a little research and was sharing it.

“I looked it up.  Most toothpaste has baking soda in it and baking soda is an abrasive!”

“For sure.  In fact, toothpaste is used as a household cleaner in many instances. So, here’s a question for you: WHY is an abrasive (which wears the protective coating of enamel off of teeth) pushed so hard by the authorities–including the educational ones?”

7 Things You Can Clean With Toothpaste (Besides Your Teeth)

“Maybe baking soda is a lot cheaper than anything else they could use?”

“I don’t think it has anything to do with price–but I can’t say that for sure.”

The conversation THEN moved on to what Americans eat and drink every day AND the effects of that food and drink on their health.

This segment of the conversation began with a George Carlin quote.

“Let me get a sip of water here… you figure this stuff is safe to drink? [Audience yells “NO!”] Actually, I don’t care, I drink it anyway. You know why? Because I’m an American and I expect a little cancer in my food and water. I’m a loyal American and I’m not happy unless I let government and industry poison me a little bit every day.”

Then it moved to food products which other countries BAN their citizens from eating or drinking which America tells its people: “C’mon, what are you scared of?  A little cancer never hurt anyone!”

And as the car pulled into the Walmart parking lot, the discussion was JUST BEGINNING on whether there is ANY actual meat in a fast food hamburger.

Again, some conversations: neither person can tell where they will end up.

But, some conversations cover a LOT of ground whether or not anyone knows where they might lead.

HAS the reader ever been a party to a winding conversation?

WAS the reader–if ever it happened–able to extract any useful information from such a discussion?

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
