The Diminishing Marginal Utility of Sin

Cupcakes

FIRST, a few words about marginal utility, diminishing marginal utility and what that all is.

marginal utility

In the context of cardinal utility, economists postulate a law of diminishing marginal utility, which describes how the first unit of consumption of a particular good or service yields more utility than the second and subsequent units, with a continuing reduction for greater amounts. Therefore, the fall in marginal utility as consumption increases is known as diminishing marginal utility. This concept is used by economists to determine how much of a good a consumer is willing to purchase.

diminishing marginal utility

Diminishing marginal utility refers to the phenomenon that each additional unit of gain leads to an ever-smaller increase in subjective value. For example, three bites of candy are better than two bites, but the twentieth bite does not add much to the experience beyond the nineteenth (and could even make it worse). This effect is so well established that it is referred to as the “law of diminishing marginal utility” in economics (Gossen, 1854/1983), and is reflected in the convex shape of most subjective utility functions. This refers to the increase in utility an individual gains from increasing their consumption of a particular good.

SECOND, a bit of a FURTHER explanation of those definitions.

The law of diminishing marginal utility can be illustrated in the following manner.

Suppose the reader REALLY, REALLY likes to eat cupcakes. In fact, cupcakes are his favorite thing to eat in the whole, wide world.

NOW, one day the reader is walking along and says to himself, “I really, REALLY love to eat cupcakes.  And I haven’t had a cupcake to eat in MONTHS.  I have a little extra cash and some time to kill, I think I’ll head down to the grocery store and buy some cupcakes to eat!”

AND SO, the reader heads to the nearest grocery store, and after looking over what the store has to offer, he selects a BOX of cupcakes which, from the picture on the box, look DELICIOUS.

The reader purchases the BOX of cupcakes and heads outside to try them out.

After opening the box, the reader rips the wrapper off of the cupcake and tears into it.

It is DELICIOUS.

He eats that first cupcake and thinks, “THAT was a good cupcake!  It was everything I remembered and a little more.”

In fact, the cupcake tastes so delicious, the reader decides to have another.

Then, the reader looks around and decides he has the time to eat a THIRD cupcake.

The third cupcake tastes good–but not as good as that first one tasted.

Before he knows it, the ENTIRE BOX of cupcakes has been eaten.

And, NONE of the cupcakes tasted as good as that first one.

This is the law of diminishing utility in a nutshell.

The FIRST of anything will taste GREAT or will provide a great comfort and joy.

The SECOND will taste good–but not as GREAT as the first one.

The THIRD (and subsequent ones) will taste good, but not as good as the first or second ones and not as good as the one which came before it.

And so on.

And FINALLY:  is the law of diminishing marginal utility a Satanic concept?

(It is right about now that the reader is most likely thinking, “Oh, here we go again: linking a semi-obscure economic term to the end times…”)

The pleasures of SIN suffer from a VERY HIGH ‘law of diminishing utility.’

Someone may engage in sinful behavior–say fornication–and think, “That felt VERY good!”

Some time afterwards, that person may have occasion to REMEMBER the sinful experience and think, “Wow! That felt good, but I’ll never do that again!”

Time passes and that person may have another occasion to remember the sinful experience and think, “I remember thinking that felt good–but I wonder, did it feel as good as all that?”

MORE time passes and that person thinks, “That felt so good, I think I’ may try it again sometime! What could it hurt?”

AND SO, that person tries and tries again to recapture that one good feeling he remembered from the first time.

BUT, he never does.

No matter how many times that person revisits that sin, the good feeling he remembered is ONLY a memory.

A FADING memory.

This is one reason, some people will pursue things–and people! (boyfriends, girlfriends)–which are CLEARLY not good for them: many times they are chasing that one good time they once had AND trying to ‘recapture the moment.’

BUT, the ‘moment’ never seems to be recaptured.

It is only a fading memory held out in front of them as a carrot in order to persuade them to SIN again.

It does NOT matter how many times one sins, it will NEVER be as pleasurable as the memory of that first time.

So, in this manner of speaking, the law of diminishing marginal utility is one which fallen men of the world should have NO trouble in understanding.

HAS the reader EVER attempted to ‘recapture the moment’?

HOW successful was that attempt?

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.

Reminiscence

reminiscence

Man has a memory, which helps him recall information from the past.

MOST men have a SELECTIVE memory, which helps them recall information from the past AS THEY REMEMBER IT.

When a man begins talking about his past, he most usually is referring to the past AS HE REMEMBERS IT.

When men selectively remember the past, they usually recall the GOOD times and (conveniently) forget the BAD.

Therefore, this imaginary time period is called “the good old days.”

MORE

Whenever a couple or more men get together to discuss days gone by, it is said that these men are REMINISCING.

the enjoyable recollection of past events.

to indulge in reminiscence

:a story told about a past event remembered by the narrator.

Though the past is over and done with, many men cannot resist talking about the past THAT THEY REMEMBER or, AS THEY REMEMBER THE PAST.

The past–as many men remember it–wasn’t ever so bad.

BUT, God’s Word declares that man should focus on his present, not his past–and especially the past as man remembers it to be.

One reason for this is that many men do NOT remember the past as it was, but as they desire it to be.

This allows many men with selective memories to correct their mistakes, to talk in a witty manner they are not otherwise known to talk OR to make better decisions back then than they made OR to change the present (based on what they supposedly did in the past they remember).

“Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

Which is a primary reason the past is so FONDLY remembered by so many.

“Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou dost not enquire wisely concerning this.”
–Ecclesiastes 7:10

Which is one reason so many men LOVE to reminiscence.

Even if what they remember bears little resemblance to what actually occurred.

Whenever God judges men, he will have PERFECT records from which to refer, NOT the fallible, malleable memories of the men He is judging.

“A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.”
–Daniel 7:10

“And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.”
–Revelation 20:12

It is commonly believed that the “books” to which Daniel and Revelation refer are the memories of the man being judged.

The complete, whole and true account of what actually took place, NOT what happened in that man’s happy REMINISCING.

WHAT does the reader’s book say?

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 Home Library

library

Man’s stories LOVE to tell the tale that man is always advancing; ever moving forward up the ladder of PROGRESS.

Back in the day, one bulwark against such tales being successfully told was the HOME LIBRARY.

The Bible–a staple of almost ALL HOME LIBRARIES–offers a different account.

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.”
–Ecclesiastes 1:9-11

In times past, the center of almost every home, the HOME LIBRARY contained information important to that household. Usually containing only a few books, the HOME LIBRARY was where a family turned for information on everyday life and its problems.

The home library also contained information important to that particular household: various family records and genealogies, many of which were contained in the family Bible.

Although it may have contained recipe books, a ‘how-to’ book or two OR a dictionary or other reference work, the ONE book almost ALL home libraries contained was God’s Word: the Bible.

One modern malady which the HOME LIBRARY aids in protecting its family against is the MEMORY HOLE.  ‘Inconvenient’ information may disappear from the public’s view, BUT for the family with a well-stocked HOME LIBRARY, that information is sometimes available when it has disappeared elsewhere.

Some advances are clearly not in man’s favor.

Some advances are thought of as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

HOWEVER, many advances are a mixed bag: there is some things people consider to be good; some things people consider to be not-so-good.

Take, for instance: computers.

Yes, computers have sped up computations which used to take much longer to perform.

Yes, computers organize information in such a way that it is many times easier to access.

Yes, computers have gained popularity as a gateway to the Internet.

BUT, the advent of home computers has certainly contributed to the disappearance of the HOME LIBRARY.

The computer offers so much more information at one’s fingertips–never mind that the information may be INCORRECT–the HOME LIBRARY was felt to be something no longer needed.

Although the praises of the HOME LIBRARY can be sung long and loud, the HOME LIBRARY–NOT the computer–was the original home of the concept of ‘garbage in, garbage out.’

THEREFORE, if the home library was filled with books of stories and other untruth–instead of God’s Word–that family was more than likely to be filled with superstitions–or worse.

A famous witch once made the statement “I come from a family of witches. While you were learning the 23rd Psalm, I was reading Tolkien and CS Lewis.”
C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien: Heretical Fruits

So, like today’s computers, the HOME LIBRARY was only as good as the information it contained.

And, IF that HOME LIBRARY contained (as most did) and referred to the Word of God, then that family got the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

DOES the reader have any sort of book collection or home library?

HAS the reader ever thought about how invaluable a home library could become if information becomes almost impossible to otherwise obtain?

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.

That Which is Learned When One Is Young

learning

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
–Proverbs 22:6

It’s funny how the mind works.

A few days ago–while focused completely on a task at hand–during the course of physical work, the hands became dirty.

This led to the thought, “There’s a break coming soon because these hands MUST be washed!”

What was funny about that decidedly NON-funny thought was the thought which almost immediately followed.

“I wonder how long I’ve been washing my hands?”

And a number of thoughts soon pushed and shoved their way into the discussion.

“I wonder if Mom ever thinks about teaching her family all of those small skills which we still use?”

“This was probably one of the FIRST things Mom taught me when I was a kid.”

“I wonder how long ago it was?”

And before you know it, this topic was explored with a number of other folks–who all added THEIR thoughts on the matter to the process.

“I still look both ways before I cross the street.  That’s something my mom taught me!”

“My mom was big on me chewing with my mouth shut.  (Laughing) It’s probably why I do it today.”

“My mom was a nurse.  Washing our hands was always a big deal in our house!”

God’s Word has a LOT of child-rearing tips in it: Proverbs 22:6 is most likely the best known and one which many take to heart.

MORE: Politically Incorrect Child Correction According to the Bible

Even IF most do NOT believe the rest of God’s Word.

HOWEVER, even the world agrees with Proverbs 22:6–even if it’s mostly in a roundabout way.

Perhaps because Proverbs 22:6 is so hard to disagree with?

“A child miseducated is a child lost.”
John F. Kennedy

“I know of no better answer to the foul practices that confront our young people than the teachings of a mother, given in love with an unmistakable warning.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

“Students never appreciate their teachers while they are learning. It is only later, when they know more of the world, that they understand how indebted they are to those who instructed them. Good teachers expect no praise or love from the young. They wait for it, and in time, it comes.”
Darren Shan

Yes, one DOES learn a LOT of skills and information used DAILY when one is taught these things when young.

BUT,

A bit of hard thinking leads one to the conclusion that teaching children things when they are young works BOTH ways.

It works for those who teach their children valuable skills and life lessons.

AND, it ALSO works for those who teach their children superstition, lies and stories told to the parent when the parent was a child.

A famous witch once made the statement “I come from a family of witches. While you were learning the 23rd Psalm, I was reading Tolkien and CS Lewis.”
C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien: Heretical Fruits

MORE

Just as children from years gone by learned valuable lessons that stuck with them because they began learning those lessons when younger, so modern children, by and large, learn unbelief, ignorance and lies that stick with them because they began learning these things when they were younger.

Does the reader have children?

Does the reader teach his children about God, Jesus and God’s Word?

OR, does the reader steer clear of these subjects because they “cause confusion and disagreements“?

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.

Comfort and the Blind Eye

Blind eye

turn a blind eye

1 (idiomatic) To ignore or deliberately overlook or ignore, especially with respect to something unpleasant or improper; to look the other way. To knowingly refuse to acknowledge something which you know to be real.

See also

It appears that one of the requirements for living a modern life OF COMFORT which most men have mastered is the TURNING A BLIND EYE TO GOD’S WORD.

This can easily be proved.  God’s Word guarantees all those who follow Jesus Christ PERSECUTION and TRIBULATION–NEITHER of which promise much comfort.

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
–2TIMOTHY 3:10

“Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”
–Acts 14:22

And so, the modern who DESIRES to live comfortably–never mind whether that modern realizes his desires or not–usually acts as though God’s Word did not exist.

This is accomplished in a number of ways.

  1. The substitution of attendance at one of Satan’s churches for the transformation of the spiritual rebirth.
  2. The following of various wolves in sheep’s clothing who twist and bend God’s Word to fit the modern lifestyle.
  3. The neglect to study God’s Word ON ONE’S OWN.

It is suspected that the stated desire to live comfortably is only ONE part of what the on-the-go modern is looking for.

A desire to ‘go along to get along‘ ALSO figures into many modern calculations: no unpleasant disagreements about Jesus; no having to explain how such a well-educated person believes the Bible; no disagreements of this nature over spiritual matters AT ALL.

Only a nice, comfortable bubble of conformity in which to live one’s life.

And since one of the HIGHEST values of the modern life is COMFORT, turning a blind eye to God’s Word seemingly assures the evil, wicked and foolish of all of that.

OF COURSE, since the COMFORT so many moderns crave ONLY lasts this very short and very temporary life–IF THAT–most moderns will end up being disappointed with the choices they have made.

All in the name of COMFORT.

HAS the reader turned a blind eye to the commands–and warnings–of God’s Word?

DOES the reader have his own little WORDS OF COMFORT to repeat whenever his conscience bothers him?

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.

Cute!

cute

Not so very long ago–in a land once called the United States of America–one of the qualities used to judge those things which one came in contact with was “CUTE.”

cute

having a pleasing and usually youthful appearance

What a cute [=adorable] baby!

cute [=pretty] pink dress

But NOW?

It appears that one most often hears the word, “cute” accompanied by a snort.

As in

“Yeah, yeah.  I see that you’re ‘cute.’  So what?”

Meaning,

Cute ain’t what it used to be.

This observation prompted a few questions.

Has the reader ever stopped to think about this?

Does the reader–even grudgingly–admit that this is true?

Has the reader ever wondered WHY this is?

One of the ANSWERS might be that Americans have LESS of an appreciation for ‘cute-ness’ NOW than they once did. “Cute” is just not very important–the thousands of cat-lovers who share, what seem to be, an unending number of “cute” cat pix among themselves notwithstanding–in the life of the modern these days.

[It was ALSO brought to mind that AT ONE TIME, referring to a person as “cute” meant something different according to gender.

IF the person was male, “cute” could mean anything from “pretty” to “sexy” to “attractive.”

“That girl was pretty cute!”

IF the person was female, “cute” usually took on a more traditional meaning.

–“She’s cute–like a baby duck.”]

Again, thinking on this matter seemed to stir up the the same questions.

Has the reader ever stopped to think about this?

Does the reader–even grudgingly–admit that this is true?

Has the reader ever wondered WHY this is?

Yes, thinking for any length of time on this possibility brought the same questions to mind–along with a few OTHER ones.

Is the reader old enough to be able to make this call?

Does the reader have ANY ideas for what may have brought about this change?

IS the reader one of those who think of baby animals and baby humans as “cute“?

DOES the reader believe it is EASIER to enjoy cute-ness when everything is all right with the world?

DOES the reader believe that everything is all right with HIS world?

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.

What Is the Job of the Fullback in American Football?

FOOTBALL

In a normal week, HUNDREDS of questions are posed and SOME of them are even answered.

And so it was that someone recently asked the question (to NO ONE in particular), “I can’t figure it out.  What does the fullback do in a game of (American) football?  He almost NEVER touches the football.  What does he do?”

And since American football will soon be mostly a thing of the past, this seemed to be a timely question.

The QUARTERBACK kicks off the plays and distributes the ball to the other players.

The HALFBACK (or TAILBACK) mostly runs the ball–occasionally, he catches a pass.

The END catches passes (and VERY occasionally runs the ball).

The TIGHT END mostly blocks and catches passes.

CENTERS, GUARDS and TACKLES block the opposing players.

But what does the FULLBACK do?

YEARS AGO, the fullback ran the ball, especially down near the end zone.

But in MODERN FOOTBALL, the fullback has a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT set of jobs.

What are they?

1- Mostly the FULLBACK blocks for the OTHER back carrying the ball.

2- Sometimes, the FULLBACK will serve as a decoy, acting as though he will carry the ball before it is handed off to the other back.

3- Occasionally, when down near the goal line, the FULLBACK will receive the ball and bull it into the end zone.

BUT MOSTLY, the fullback blocks: that is his primary job in the modern game of American football, particularly the professional version of the game.

When this answer was given, the one posing the original question was NOT very satisfied and asked a second question: the second question was a bit harder to answer.

“Why even have him then?”

DOES the reader enjoy a good game of football (American-style)?

DID the reader ever wonder what the jobs of the various players were?

DOES watching football take up a LOT of the reader’s free 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.

DOES the reader believe he is saved?

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

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

FEAR of the LORD

“By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.”
–Proverbs 16:6

Watchmen on the Walls

"Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;"

watchman-wall-pd "Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

--Ezekiel 33:1-6

More important than pomp, popularity, riches or recognition: we will be guilty of no man's blood upon our hands.
I am not ashamed of the gospel
