disfuctionalunit

So the questions I have about and for  God (like #1 what the hells up with my brain chemicals lol) are of course infinite.

I do have an almost equal number of questions for his followers here on earth. I mean help a dysfunctional brother out!!

Narrowing it down though, here’s where it ties into the last post.

So many of the Christians I’ve known (God bless their souls) so many of the churches I’ve attended, seem to focus less on the words of Jesus, and more on the rules of the Paul.

And here I don’t mean the original, one of the twelve, no we’re talking Saul, who became Paul, the guy who penned  “Romans”, “Corinthians” etc

That would make the appropriate term for these individuals “Paulists”.

Now I don’t care if you want to be “Paulists” and get all tied up in the anal details of a persecuting…

Okay here’s the deal, I mean I know  that the few of you who read these posts possibly think I’m some kind’a a-hole, that I’m mean and cranky and just…wrong on so many levels. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve said some outlandish things, not saying I do not believe my points to be supportable by valid arguments, they are just…slightly outside of mainstream thinking…take my stand on abortion as an example.

I don’t support abortion, but I do support a women having the right to kill her fetus if she so chooses. I just want those women to admit that’s what they are doing. It’s not just a tumor, a mass of your own cells gone somehow out of control. It is a new life. I’m sorry but the DNA evidence proves it out. It is not you, that’s all, that’s my argument. What’s yer counter?…

Nothing,…not a peep.

I know there are a lot of women on this site… a lot of women on this site who support reproductive rights, I don’t want ya to think I’m not right there with ya, I just want us to be honest.

Oh and wait while we’re being honest, I also don’t think the Government should be forcing religious institutions to act contrary to their doctrines.

Funny (well you might not think so) but, contrary to what many of you believe, the founding fathers, wanting to avoid a federally designated Religion (separation of church and state for you rtds) had little to do with fear of God in Government (they were religious men themselves) and all to do with the fear of Government meddling in Church affairs. Again if you think I’m full o’ crapola don’t be afraid to say so.

Now all this makes it sound like I’m on the side of the right to lifers, but nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t want the so called “religious right” to restrict your rights any more than I want you to restrict theirs.

And again it’s really the flaw in their main argument that drives me crazy. The God that we both believe in gave us humans free will, why are you so hot to legislate that away?

And all this hate and anger what’s that about? I know I wrote about it before, but every time this issue comes up I am always surprised at the amount of vitriol I read and hear spewed from so called Christians.  I mean call me crazy,(and I’m sure many of you do lol) but I’m pretty sure if God wanted to end abortion he could.

And of course, when I wrote this last time it got my little dog whirling in my brain and I had to wonder, why he hadn’t yet? I mean it seems like something God might concern himself with…all those poor innocent souls…what could be the reason for letting such a thing continue.

Okay I mean I know there are a lot of other horrors in this world, many of them befalling the newly or near newly born, but it is a lot of babies souls, sorry fetus’s souls piling up in heaven. I mean, cause they would be going straight to heaven (unless yer Catholic then it’s Limbo till judgement day[this is being hotly debated between Lil Mouse and I, we will let you know what research bears out]) but either way it’s a hell (excuse the lame pun) of a lot of pure, sin free,  innocent souls?

What, if anything, could God use say, a few million unblemished souls for? Is there any clue? Anything in the Good Book?

Well, I mean hell if I know, I’m not God, but what I do know is that I have been assured that in the long run (that is if I actually believe what I say I believe) it will all work out according to His plan.

I mean call me dysfunctional, but isn’t the apocalypse coming this December?

 

The Tree Falls Alone Pt 2

November 19, 2011

So the questions I have about and for  God (like #1 what the hells up with my brain chemicals lol) are of course infinite.

I do have an almost equal number of questions for his followers here on earth. I mean help a dysfunctional brother out!!

Narrowing it down though, here’s where it ties into the last post.

So many of the Christians I’ve known (God bless their souls) so many of the churches I’ve attended, seem to focus less on the words of Jesus, and more on the rules of the Paul.

And here I don’t mean the original, one of the twelve, no we’re talking Saul, who became Paul, the guy who penned  “Romans”, “Corinthians” etc

That would make the appropriate term for these individuals “Paulists”.

Now I don’t care if you want to be “Paulists” and get all tied up in the anal details of a persecuting authoritarian with a self flagellation fetish.

I don’t care if ya wanna focus on nit-picking rules and ignore the overall theme.

Just don’t call yourself Christians.

I mean these are the kind’a things that really fuel my dysfunction.

Words mean something.

Which leads me to another big issue I have with the way Christianity has been set up from the very beginning….wait…what?

I know, I talk about believing in God and Jesus and stuff, then I spend time openly mocking such beliefs.

Both of those statements are true. I don’t know why it’s such a problem to have faith and to question at the same time.

But I believe if God made my brain, then he made it dysfunctional, made it in such a way that it questions and searches and mocks, even itself…

A little dog chasing it’s tail..it is to lol as you young kids say

Okay anyway so back at it. The word in this instance is sacrifice (here’s where Little Mouse would like me to put a definition in, but hell if you don’t know the definition of sacrifice please stop reading this post and immediately pick up a f-ing dictionary).

In this case of course we’re talking about the big one, the sacrifice to end all sacrifices, the big S, the foundation of the whole darn Christian theology.

And God so loved the world that he sent…okay well we all know it (again, if not, stop! This time…Bible).

But he wasn’t really His “son“, not like you and I think of it, we can also all agree on that.

So what do we have, lets examine it.

This Supreme Being (beyond our understanding) somehow takes a part of it’s self, like propagating a new species of flower, or like cloning (I’m not saying that’s what it was, just an intellectual reference point). I mean if you believe all this stuff, then you believe this too be true also yes? Am I right so far?

Okay so things get weird from here on out, (I’ll have Little Mouse check my sentence structure later lol) hopefully I can write it out so that this dysfunction of mine will be properly addressed.

The things is if I’m the Supreme Being and I have a plan that calls for me to temporarily remove, dissect, diffuse, (whatever ya’ wanna call it) a “piece” of myself and use it to co-opt this tiny fetus, full well knowing that in roughly thirty years or so ( less than a nano-second to God) it will  return to me, that’s not a sacrifice; maybe at best I’d give ya’ an inconvenience.

Okay so what about Jesus, the man? He went through heck-a-rooni, bled and died fer our sins (as the Bible relates this is the Sacrifice aspect).

However, by this point Jesus the man had some understanding of his role in the whole affair, knew that somehow he was…different…he was separate. As is evidenced by his own words, knew he was returning to his “Father” and would be the “Way” for poor, begrudgeful, sinful humanity to achieve life everlasting in God’s Heavenly kingdom (?).

And yes he did suffer horribly and Jesus, the man, chose to do so for us. That is a sacrifice…

He did know though, that at the end he’d be rewarded fer this act, knew that he somehow was the key to God’s/His (Jesus being also God) plan.

My question is: If this is the Big Sacrifice, isn’t it diminished just a bit by Jesus the man having this awareness of his role.

We do have one shining example of sacrifice, of true sacrifice, in this whole story.

A guy who was most likely suffered mental anguish and torment for weeks as his moment in history approached. Who most likely held long internal debates. We could easily imagine that he had trouble sleeping, eating, felt increasingly isolated from his peers.

A follower of Jesus, this man was called to do God’s dirtiest work, and was rewarded, not with the right hand seat, but an eternity (again if ya’ believe this whole thing, and here I mean of course if you believe in exact literal interpretation) suffering in hells deepest fires.

Now that’s some kind’a sacrifice.

Who was this man, who once realizing how badly he had been double duped, who understanding rightly that his name would now be vilified through out human history, took his own life as the punch line to this cosmic joke?

We all know by now I mean Judas. Judas Iscariot.

And so it came to me that we believers in God who are searching for understanding, a deeper understanding of the word sacrifice; perhaps we should look closer at Judas.

What would that be then? An Iscariote,? An Iscariite? No. Iscarianism?

Ahhh better dogs than mine will have to figure that one out.

Oh it is to laugh…so now that was fun wasn’t it
