Unrecognized Modern Brushes With the Supernatural

baffled

“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 RiceWitching Hour

As has been mentioned before in these pages: there is ONE nation which has NOT acknowledged ANY invisible beings.

At one time, that nation was called the United States of America.

The USA has STEADFASTLY refused to make such an acknowledgement.

Because of this refusal, Americans have remained, for the most part, ignorant of the world which surrounds them.

“Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.”
–Hebrews 13:2

Being filled to the brim with various bits of minutia–recipes, details of their favorite celebrities, music or TV shows– many Americans are totally convinced that they are informational powerhouses–and CANNOT be fooled about ANY detail of the modern world in which they live their modern lives.

IN FACT, the ‘smarter’ one is, the more totally convinced that person usually is of their command of the facts about the world in which they live.

BUT, nothing could be further from the truth.

“It’s easier to fool people than it is to convince them that they have been fooled.”
Mark Twain

Americans (and increasingly, ALL moderns–no matter where they may live) are raised on a steady diet of STORIES about their world.

These stories are NOT true and hide the truth from those foolish enough to believe them.

QUESTION: Why does the reader think that those who imagine they control the world finds it advantageous to lie about the existence of invisible beings?

And so, Americans are treated to a number of stories about HOW the world around them came to be.  They also are educated and entertained by STORIES about HOW the modern world ‘works.’

Lastly, Americans are given STORIES in case they happen to stumble over the truth at some point.

“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.”
Winston Churchill

And, these STORIES, for the most part, have worked.

Clarke’s Three Laws

British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke formulated three adages that are known as Clarke’s three laws, of which the third law is the best known and most widely cited. They are part of his ideas in his extensive writings about the future.

These so-called laws are:

  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

And so it is that when many moderns experience daily brushes with the supernatural, it is THAT MODERN himself who explains away any supernatural connections.

NOT the government; NOT the popular culture; NOT the educational system: but that person who has had the experience.

NO DOUBT, most readers have had these supernatural experiences.

NO DOUBT, most readers have explained away these experiences as soon as they occur.

And so it is that MANY of modern experiences with the supernatural are ‘explained away’ with the one doing the explanation feeling uneasy about that ‘explanation’ and being bothered by it at some later point when the experience is recalled.

MOST experiences with the supernatural are NOT ONLY explained away: they are not even RECOGNIZED for what they are.

What does that person USE to explain away his experience?

Most often, that person resorts to the STORIES he has been told: preferring the lie he has been taught to the truth he has experienced.

And THAT is the crux of modern deception, in particular, AND modern life, in general.

HAS the reader ever encountered an event for which there was no worldly explanation?

HAS the reader ever encountered an event for which there was no world explanation, but the reader ‘explained’ that event–mostly to himself–with an unsatisfying story he had been told, ONLY to be mentally bothered by this ‘unexplained’ event at a later time?

It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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
