LET’S BE REAL

Let’s talk about the human condition … Let’s talk about human nature … Let’s talk about there being ‘Nothing New Under The Sun’ concerning the activities of human beings … Now I am not talking about advancements in technology … All the advancements that benefit mankind in all kinds of ways including medicine, and many other areas of interest …

I will use myself as an example … and being perfectly honest … Before my salvation experience in 1981 … I was quite a rascal … A product of the seventies and eighties … I liked to party and drink, and the like … In my circle of friends this was all viewed as normal … And we had a fantastic time … But ‘way leads on to way’ and we mature and learn to take on responsibility, and to contribute something to society, hopefully …

So … Even after becoming a Christian … There is a new challenge that we learn about … And that involves the fact that we are born into a ‘fallen state’ surrounded by ‘fallen people’ … Trying to survive in a ‘fallen system’ of economics, and virtually all aspects of life …

I have learned that prior to my salvation experience, and people I know experienced the same thing … We are / were unaware that we are / were in a ‘fallen state’ until we become enlightened or born again … “A renewal of our hearts and minds” having come into contact with the living God that created all that you see … And who knows every person that has ever lived or ever will live, in the earth and heaven …

So I said all that, to say this …” I have found that all humans (because of the fallen state) tend towards corruption and evil”… There are always some exceptions … however this condition applies to everyone … that is in the universal application of all being born in sin … Even after becoming born again, we learn we still have the old ‘sin nature’ to deal with, and there is a constant struggle going on inside of us, because of the conflict of the old and new natures … Often we overcome, sometimes we don’t … Often the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak, and we give in and stumble… These are not excuses … But the reality, for me anyway … You might find it to be true also … then again maybe you don’t … maybe you have a completely different experience, giving you a completely different world view and world ‘belief system'( you, of course, have freedom of choice)… This is the stuff that makes the world go round … What most humans fail to understand and fully comprehend is that God has standards, and he has rights to those standards, Him being “The Creator”… We are in ‘His play’… Humans tend to get things upside down and think that we invite God into ‘our play’… In my humble opinion, this is simply a failure to understand what’s going on in this world … God is the creator we are the created … We need to get with the program …

So let’s take a look at what the ‘unregenerate heart’ of all those in our culture brings … things like “Political correctness”…”Cancel cultures”… & Many in the government that believe that they are God … And we ( common folk) are too stupid to know what to do with our lives … I don’t know about you, but I need the government to protect me, my family ( this is the government’s main responsibility) and all-American citizens … I don’t want them involved in the nitty-gritty of my life, and I am sure you do not either if you think about it …

And in my humble opinion we need to realize that we are made in the image of God and that we have an eternal spirit living inside of us, that will go on after we leave this flesh blood and bone existence … And this is not me talking … God says this in His Word whether we like it or not … So let’s come into a new awareness about the spiritual nature and importance of our existence … Otherwise we will just keep on bumbling along making the same old mistakes …We are spirits in a human body … All problems that manifest in the flesh have a spiritual beginning… littleraventhepoet.blog … Frank Payton
