Be A Man

I mentioned before that knowledge is power. Now i see that even bad knowledge can lead to bad power. Bad thinking and bad information leads to bad results. Not only is positive thinking powerful, it is healthy, and the normal or ideal state of condition for people. Anything less is less than 100%.

Many times i have mentioned that God is pure goodness, and in Him there can be found no evil. None. The modern day so-called Christians have impugned Jesus’ name so much that many people don’t believe in God being pure goodness. Not to mention the Bible being hijacked, and anyone who has the nerve to suggest the Bible may not be inerrant would be considered the greatest of all heretics. But yet, i don’t just make this stuff up. No, i get it straight out of Scripture, the Scripture that people “said” they follow. But apparently, they didn’t even read their own literature. We are told in Ephesians, for one example, that the Holy Spirit is perfect goodness.

Ephesians Chapter 5

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye
light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and
righteousness and truth;)
10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.

Therefore we can see that God is pure goodness and righteousness and cannot lie or do anything evil. We are told that we should strive to be children of light. So by this we can see that we don’t want to go around telling lies or doing anything evil, per se. Whatever per se means. We try to be children of God, and so we are as good as we can be. However this doesn’t mean we have to be perfect, but we do the best we can. And this is in every day life. Now in the struggle between God and evil, as God’s servant, you may be asked to fool your opponent on occasion, maybe by deceiving him. Now isn’t this lying? We can see that it’s not like we are liars, going around lying about things, but in competition with evil we may trick them, and fake them out. It’s like in a sports game when you fake a bunt, then hit it out of the park. That’s different than everyday life where we strive to be children of God, children of Light, not darkness. The point being that there is a time and place for everything.

We know that God being pure goodness would never hurt any animals, and God would never allow anyone to hurt or kill His animals. God gave man great power, power over all the animals and even over some people. God would never use His power to hurt anything smaller and weaker. God gave man power over all the weaker things to defend them, and watch out for them, and help care for them, not prey on them because they are smaller and weaker and completely defenseless.
