“…Still Thinking…”

THINKING

It has been mentioned before that OCCASIONALLY, someone makes a very good point–and it is suspected that they had NO intention of doing that when they made it.

So it was that last week, an acquaintance–who is an adherent of an Eastern religion–was sitting in the sun in a lawn chair.

Approaching him, the conversation went a little this.

“Hey!  How you doing?”

“Good, real good.”

“What you up to?”

“I’m trying to make sense out of a world which doesn’t work the way it’s advertised.”

“Oh yeah?  How’s it coming?”

“It’s slow going…I’m still thinking on it.”

“Really?  Well, I’ll catch up the next time I see ya.”

“Okay.”

Funny how such a short conversation can stick in one’s mind–or rather, PARTS of that conversation.

“I’m trying to make sense out of a world which doesn’t work the way it’s advertised.

This writer is no stranger to similar thoughts; although, this writer would have said, “…trying to make sense out of a world which doesn’t work the way we’re told (or taught).”

This has prompted some thinking and some questions are waiting to be asked (when next this topic is touched upon).

1- What EXACTLY started you down this particular path of pondering?

2- What EXACTLY did you come up with?

3- What are some examples of the world not working as you expected it to work?

It’s not known how long this man’s “…still thinking…” phase will go on.

HOPEFULLY, that phase will be over when next we meet.

The POSSIBLE answers to the questions are NOW buzzing around in one’s head.

“I’m trying to make sense out of a world which doesn’t work the way it’s advertised.”

Wonder what he came up with?

Wonder IF he knew he was making such a good point (regardless of what he says) when he began his questioning?

It should be a very interesting discussion.

DOES the reader believe all of the various stories he has been told down through the years?

WHY?  or  WHY NOT?

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
