The World…The Flesh…and…Old Slewfoot…

Been thinking about… the different ways the different things we struggle with…

The World…. what in the world is the”World”?…. I think a little bit of study will reveal that it’s this world system… the spirit of this age… it’s the externality of this Fallen system… man and all people in the Fallen state… you might go further and say… the external Holywood- ish pride and vanity of man… might be described as Cher… her desire to be 21 forever… might be jewelry and beauty shops… and Oprah Winfrey…

The Flesh… what is exactly meant by the term …flesh… I think it’s man’s natural inclination to sin.. again back to the Fallen state… you could call it the inner “old man”… if you’re not born from above or born again… that’s all you got… I didn’t make the rules… and I’m not holier than thou… so save it for someone else…

The Devil… I like to call him old slewfoot… he will attack you in every imaginable way… one big trick he’s using today is suicide… especially in young people… ( but not limited to)… look at what the great Robin Williams gave to the world… ( I guess he killed him-self)?… I certainly can’t judge him….

Ernest Hemingway… too many to mention… I’m going to make a very controversial statement but I feel like it needs to be said… in God’s eyes that Sin is Sin and that includes everything… suicide would be certainly a sin… there may be extenuating circumstances that we wouldn’t consider… with our natural Minds… is it okay or true to say that suicide is not the unpardonable Sin?…

I don’t believe that there’s a scripture reference… I’ve always wondered just what is the extent of God’s Tender Mercies?… food for thought… it’s not for us to say…

Somebody… enlighten me if I’m wrong… my Studies have revealed to me… the only unpardonable sin… is to deny or blaspheme the Holy Spirit… I only bring this up because my heart breaks… a soul or a human being that struggles  so much… and just can’t see their way clear… to commit suicide and then go on to further hell… I’ll leave it alone… I’ve said what I need to say… I feel only compassion… sympathy… and empathy…….Shalom…. I don’t usually hand out money but I saw the man pictured just today… I was at a light… I was trying to get some money out of my pocket and the light changed… the thought I had in my head was.. I can’t be concerned with what he might do with the money… I just didn’t care… maybe he was hungry… not for me to say…
