If I Had a Pharm, O What Animals I Would Have

Drug Farm

One day I told someone special how adverse I was to taking pictures. I always felt it was unnatural and if it was candid, let it be done with consent. Being reflective as I am, I try to test my own beliefs to see the merits of it. There was a point of time where I had a healthy dose of self-hatred seeing the future of all things WAAAY ahead of time. Somewhere down the road though, I became foolish and unbalanced; what should’ve merely been a cocoon became a donjon of endless rejections. I’m getting better though. We’re getting better. Keep on praying for my family as I pray for yours.

Remember when Phat Farm and Baby Phat was hot fashion? I just recently found out why these brands died down. It’s sad when certain language becomes dated because the fashion is no longer in style. Like girl, you ‘thicc’ and I like that Phat; that Baby Phat. I don’t know what’s more tragic, realizing you’re getting old, learning about the vice that surrounded Phat Farm or being ignorant of it’s phantom twin being virtuous. Sorry guys, I’m still recovering from being fed partial truths for a good portion of my life. So bear with me here. I’m not trying to be irresponsible with my words. I’m doing my best to convey invisible realities. Shout out to Russell Simmons for setting the standard that you can be more than a recording artist.

Blue Ice

Today’s Gospel reading comes from Revelation 21:

6 And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the spring of the water of life without payment. 7 The one who conquers will have this heritage, and I will be his God and he will be my son. 8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. Rev 21:6-8 ESV

Now I typically don’t like teaching from Revelation because I believe if you were misreading the Old Testament and the Gospels, you have a very funky view of this book. In other words, if you took for granted small details in earlier passages, more than likely you’re overlooking nuggets in the Book. Never mind getting into details within the Creation Story and other stuff; the point I’m making is that there is a particular nuance here: for now we’ll focus on the word ‘sorcerers’.

In the Greek, the word is pharmakeus, which may play a role in where were get the word Pharmacy. The idea is that potions were magical remedies that brought about healing. It would be incorrect then to use this word as an indictment against pharmaceuticals much in the same way that saying affirmations are casting spells. After all, Jesus did say he would cause those who believe to drink from the spring of the water of life…

7 Illegal Drugs that Can Be Used AS Medicine

Now I’m not here to pull your strings and somehow delude you to become an addict. As many doctors have found positive uses for what is typically known as recreational drugs, I reveal them to you. My advice is to be cautious when using any substance whether prescribed or not. Neither the judgment of you or doctors are infallible. So as Paul would say, “All things are lawful,” but not all things are helpful. With that in mind, let’s move forward.

  1. Cocaine – Did you know that this drug has been used as a topical anaesthetic in South America because of its numbing properties? These effects are known to also alleviate headaches. How sway! Doctors are discovering its advantages to treat irritable bowel disease and other problems with the gut. I wonder when did people decide that putting Coke in Coca-Cola was a problem?
  2. Heroin – Is commonly used as pain management in hospitals. Avoid using pain killers as a way to relieve pain as it is highly addictive.
  3. Magic Shrooms – Another remedy against headaches, obsessive compulsive disorder, and can even remedy depression and anxiety. But being honest here, people turn to shrooms for their psychedelic properties.
  4. Ketamine – also known as ‘Special K’. No, no, no not the cereal here. Ketamine is found to be helpful in tranquilizing horses. There have been studies to suggest ketamine can also cure depression.
  5. MDMA – Otherwise known as ecstacy, E, or X. Studies show it has the potential to treat PTSD. Don’t use it as some caffeine stimulant though.
  6. LSD – Weird fact! In Norway, LSD is known as a possible treatment for alcoholism. I’m not exactly sure if it truly makes them clean, or give them side effects considering their hallucinogenic nature.
  7. Cannabis – Long known as pain relief for chronic illnesses, it has been proven to relieve PTSD, nausea, and some cases of glaucoma and Crohn’s disease.

The Beastly Cures

Not to put some lofty – I told you drugs aren’t that bad – in your face. In a society where black and white thinking abounds, there is more room for the virtue of moderation to take center stage when forming an opinion. A mature person will weight the pros and cons of any issue, Biblical or not. Again, this isn’t to say that all things are redeemable. There are certain things that should be avoided at all costs. Nevertheless, all things can be reconciled to Christ and is the job of true ambassadors to facilitate His work.

Between ten and twenty/

I was a silly rabbit/

Got them screamn’ loud/

Searching her head like I brows/

As I sit in this luncheon/

Our love’s sky-rocketing/

Throughout every function/

F3, F3, was that the right key?/

It can’t be fantastic without the Trinity/

You got 33 seconds
to fulfill your ministry/

So eat and have faith/

Here comes the end of History/

Natural High – Blood Stone

The shortcomings of man should not persuade anyone to lose hope in the Final Consummation. It’s unfortunate of what we’re hearing in marriages; Derrick Jaxson and Chris and Paige comes to mind. For those who are married, now is the time to look to Jesus to make every crooked place straight & rough place plain. He will lead us into all truth in His righteousness. So therefore in honor of the National Drug and Alcohol Awareness week, I say to you love Christ until you reach your natural high.

Until next time,

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

— Gal 6:8 ESV

There’s a Crux in the Womb: Reckless Organ Donors Pt 3

Tatted Belly

During the days of dancing between angels and demons; waffling through the genius of light and darkness, comes another shuffled cue from the archives. The days of sitting at the dock is over. If you were thinking you can catch a part of the wave now, that ship has unfortunately sailed. But don’t worry, there’s likely another buzz going on that people will let fly. Don’t let noncrucial matters keep you from living your best life.

The Evil Residence

Last time I wrote about abortion, I brought up additional perspectives that justifies abortion in its proper context. While not condoning irresponsible or cruel behaviors, we took note that:

  1. God causes miscarriages
  2. There is plausibility one can have spiritual children at no cost
  3. If children are the greatest in the Kingdom, it is Logical to infer that fetuses in faith can bear the cross while in the womb.
  4. If we would abort lusts and other carnality to not give birth to sin, it is appropriate to see abortion of unwanted pregnancies as Biblical.

Finding such unconventional assertions as dubious is understandable. My only hope is that final judgements on the matter are reserved until all pertinent evidence is revealed; whether through investigation or in Providence.

The gospel reading I want to use to build my final case on abortion is below:

In The Water – Cory Henry

24 Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.

Jn 12:24 ESV

In cooperation with those who examine text in its context, we’ll affirm that this passage foreshadows the way Jesus would be crucified. Additionally, this verse would speak to following Christ as a living sacrifice…Let’s read the next verse:

25 Whoever loves HIS life loses IT, and whoever hates HIS life in this world will keep IT for eternal life. Jn 12:25 ESV *Emphasis Added*

SIDEBAR: I try my best to makes things as clear as possible, and give people information in a way so that they can go about their lives making the best decisions. When it comes to Christianity, there seems to be this ongoing notion that people are adding or twisting the text to fit their own agenda. While I don’t deny the notion that this may be true in some cases, there needs to be an equal amount of consideration given to those who may not comprehend well, weakening the potency of words and failing to apply the Spirit of God’s Word fully.

CASE IN PONT: Considering the fact that God sent His own Son to die, how can we apply following God’s example personally, relatively, and collectively? I used the word relatively as an intentional pleonasm, knowing that the full definition of words are not commonly understood. Would a correct assessment of the Scripture involve a Lieutenant sending a fellow soldier on a kamikaze mission? A company releasing a beta project for testing marketing demand? Why wouldn’t this include the relationship between a parent and a fetus?

Somebody needs to soak their toes in the tub for an hour because they’re funky. No really, these questions are asked to probe insight around the text and to fill in applications that are normally overlooked. Otherwise, we’re in danger of speaking in a feedback loop or engaging in unhealthy group-think. It’s not flattering to be rounded up as chickens in the coup.

  1. Who is responsible for creating the earliest form of chicken incubators and around what time were they created? In the business world, what are incubators?
  2. What is a cooperative? Name four types of cooperatives? How can you build one within your own community?
  3. Disunity is prevalent is society and unfortunately more so within the Black Community. What ways can we restore harmony without destroying individuality?

So far that was 10 questions. Only eleven more to go….just kidding. Be inquisitive my little kittens. Just remember the old cliche and don’t eat that pizza Garfield.

Accrued Disinterest

It’s difficult to lose that belly fat after indulging in all that junk. I’m clearly talking to myself here. Girl who told you to have that thang thanging out here? “Nobody! Put that thang up. Because men in their un regenerated state lacks the capacity to love well, we can expect lapses in affinity and even hostility from others depending on their state of mind.

However, those who have been completely sanctified by the Spirit of Christ will experience Agape love in every place and at all times. Because true love is transcendental, a person who achieves this state will find themselves in Paradise.

22 And thou shalt be loved by all for the glory of God: but the one who falls short of completion shall suffer tribulations. 2 Matt 10:22 TPV (The Prototypical Version)

Herein is a hint for the justification of abortion. For any loving parent would want the best for their child and their partner. Whatever is birthed through the spirit will lead to Eternal Bliss while those who give birth to children in the flesh may experience troubles. May God cause all who are parents to find all their children to be a blessing.

Cruel Unctions

There is a double-edged sword when it comes to finding solutions to climate change. Because some are convinced that humans play an integral role in the current shift, measures have been taken to curb human output through population control. Perhaps controlling the populations makes sense with the ever-increasing rise of water scarcity. It’s threat challenges the future of the human race. On the other side of the ring are people who want to control the population for the manipulation of people to preserve a heirarchy of classism. Guard against those who wish to destory in the guise of nurturing and those who hide their intentions to oppress through the flattery of words. I hope you are wise enough to discern the nuances now.

The Social Mirrors

If you want to experience agape love quickly, social media maybe an obstacle for you. Remember as long as your heart is not converted, the world and the people in it will lack the character to love you well. Guard your ways be learning to love unconditionally – even if that means isolating to love and enjoy your own company – and you will do well.

Of Wombed Sacrifice

Cruising right along here. Are we bored yet? I’ll admit, I have a lot to work on in regards to my pen game. Great communication isn’t my strongest trait. I wonder if that makes me an anomaly.

*Looks to see if he can fly this cycle somewhere*. 
Any hints Steve?

Well the last reason abortion can be justified is in pious sacrifice to God. To recap, there are irresponsible and immoral reasons to abort a child. The point that is being made here is that there are scenarios where such practices are acceptable, i.e rape, death of mother or child, abandonment etc. To confirm this, let’s look at a well known scripture:

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Rm 12:1 ESV

Compare with an earlier passage:

12 So then brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. 13 For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. Rm 8:12-13

Kill the Director – The Wombats

I know some of us would rather stay young, but who would really want to go back to Middle School? There were too many restrictions at that time. And if you think that is bad, just think about how it would be returning to become a fetus! If you’re in Christ, you perceive everything before you’re brought into the world. Otherwise, you’re ignorant and dependent on the care of your mother. Yeah, I said mother. If an unborn child cannot bear the cross through Christ, then the only other option that is justifiable is the parent crucifying the child by agency of the Spirit.

Not the most palatable food, I know. I don’t do simple chit-cats. And I don’t wish to put stumbling blocks before anyone’s path. I just get upset when people are being condemned for something that is Biblical all because others overlook small details. Well anyways, did we really write this thing together? I wonder how many thoughts were exchanged without speaking to one another. So about that flick…we making this movie or nah?

And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

The Bishop’s Opening

The Bishop's Opening

CHAPTER ONE

America’s Red Flag

1Here is what God is saying concerning the United States:
The colors of your flag are red, white, and blue;
why then is your land only red?
2The sounds of violence are within the ear shots of babes;
the musician no longer plays their instrument,
and the singer has ceased from singing.
3Nations have turned their backs on you;
even those who plead to you for their lives,
for you have exchanged vitals for vitriol.
4Open your eyes and weep! Feel remorse!
For your transgressions have piled up,
and you have prized rubies over me.

His Story of Slaves


5I showed belligerence to your fathers;
when I punished them with the sword and with whips,
my wrath was on display as in a stadium.
6I impoverished them even to the depths of their soul,
but my Holy Ones can afford my delight and favor;
for the sweetness of my charm has never left my necks.
7They have found their standing in Me,
and become my most precious of Messengers.
Because of this, they will receive my inheritance.
8Doesn’t my name bring about salvation?
Does it not both deliver and destroy?
Dare to praise me, and you will find refuge.

The King’s Meme


9For I am the LORD, a consuming fire;
Yeshua, the LORD of hosts.
I was severed from my brothers as in the days of Joseph.
10And my brothers came to me saying,
“Who are you to tell us you’re the King?”
And my authority is challenged.
11Therefore I instructed my muses to prepare a drink for me
with hyssop; for a libation, but for themselves.
Let them pursue pleasure within reason, 
lest the serpent beguile them.
12I commanded the powers to irrigate the land with dryness;
that the country shall thirst with nothing to quench,
and the ungodly shall drown in their appetite.
13Those who have respect to my name shall not be in chains,
they shall remain untarnished;
uninhibited and will escape the grip of the despot.
14Still the sacrilegious shall burn in their corruption;
it shall be heaped upon them as coals of fire;
yes even as meteors of wormwood.
15Their souls shall be tormented forever;
left desolate with no one to restore,
for they despised the only hand that could rescue.

A Waning Church


16O Israel, my ministers have become dispassionate;
my prophets are apathetic,
for their bloodshot eyes have not seen peace.
17And the minds of the wise agonize,
they seek knowledge from dusk until morning,
and yet no solution is found to cure.
18Because at the end of the Day, they’ve forgotten Me.
I am the Day, the Bright Morning Star.
The grind that the LORD requires has ceased amongst them.
19Therefore dancing shall cease from the clubs,
and skipping from the hearts of the streets.
Giddiness shall be known as an ancient relic;
20And the vigor of the strong shall fail;
even the fragrances and cosmetics.
Let those who keep judgment accept bribes no more!

21Keep the ways of the LORD and he will preserve you;
You will continue on Highways that the profane cannot enter.
22You will rest in the loveliest pastures that God has provided.
Justice shall be your front and rear shield.
For only the pure in heart can enter my presence.

A Vision for Simps

Earlier this morning I had a vision after seeking the LORD and receiving His word.

I had a brief glance of Simpson characters who resembled the likes of Homer and Bart Simpson.

Now there are two ways one can consider the vision.

1.) Idolatry of the heart

“Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I consult with them in any way? Ez 14:3 BSB

Or…

2) A message from Christ

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. Heb 1:1-2 ESV

I did a quick etymology of the last name to discover this:

Simpson means son of Sim(me) which can be traced to Middle English and Hebrew names Simon or Simeon.

Simeon was Leah’s second son, the first wife of Jacob who was loved less. Now Simeon name means ‘heard’ or ‘God has heard’. 

And perhaps there are some of us who feel like they have been forgotten; your dreams have taken a back seat and you are finding yourself in not so ideal situations. What you long for looks more and more like it is impossible to have and that there are those around you who are having a grand o’ time. Let this word be a plausible sign to you:

You have been wearied in believing, I will now come to you. Those who have felt unloved and abandoned I will cherish you and carry you under my wings. You shall no longer toil in infertile ground, for I will give you blessings according to My Joy and Pleasure. Years will feel like days to you, and your youthfulness shall be restored. For I alone am the Lord God who removes damnation, let those who believe in Me flow with my breath.

This is the word of the Lord.

Church of the Unborn: Reckless Organ Donors Pt 2

Organ Donors

You ever in your younger years enjoyed a past-time that was considered innocent; it could be a form of entertainment, or hanging out with friends; doing some type of activity that when you got older realized how messed up that past-time was? Such epiphanies can be traumatic or eye-opening depending on how socially unacceptable the practice really is. The latter is how I think about Disney movies. Some adaptions of children stories were perhaps not really for children to begin with. Alice in Wonderland is one of those movies that come to mind.

Mary Un-Birthday

Let me spill the tea on a dark saying in the movie: There’s a certain scene in which Alice interrupts a celebration held by the Mad Hatter and the silly rabbit. The party had to do with un-birthdays; the days of the year that a person wasn’t born. Now while this could give a living person a reason to celebrate every day of the year, this also indirectly speaks to a practice that is shunned in American society. To what extent should we celebrate the lives of the unborn? This is where we begin exploring the text:

And I thought the dead who are already dead more fortunate than the living who are still alive. But better than both is he who has not yet been and has not seen the evil deeds that are done under the sun. Ecc 4:2-3 ESV

It wasn’t until God took the lives of every firstborn including Pharaoh that he decided to let the children of Israel go. Leaving Egypt marked the beginnings of deliverance for Israel with its climax occurring after crossing the Red Sea. Miriam would worship God in celebrating God’s deliverance from the Egyptians. On one hand, there was celebration of the salvation of God. On the other, an entire generation and their future children were destroyed.

Eve O’ Eve

The darkest hours are often the most pivotal. When a new age is dawning, there is a lot more pressure. Either you’ll cave in and give up or you’ll press through to victory. The thing about decisions is that there are always alternative options. The kicker is knowing which course is better and what is best considering the circumstances. Don’t trade what is eternal for what is temporary or sacrifice what is wholesome for what is fleeting. One of the most devasting moment in the story of Redemption is the Fall of Man: after they ate of the tree, Adam would give his wife a name.

And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living. Gen 3:20 ESV Emphasis added.

The scripture is amazing for a number of reasons. Do you realize that that scripture is saying that Eve was a mother BEFORE Cain and Abel was in the picture? Let’s do a thought experiment here: If Eve was a mother of all before she ate of the tree, how many children did Adam and Eve have? Why weren’t we given any names? Perhaps this may be how Cain found a wife out of ‘thin air’? Oh, if only Eve aborted the desire to eat of the fruit, she’d be the glorious mother of all and none of this mess we see in the world would happen.

Unless…

It was never God’s design for Eve to remain the mother of all living. For by an extreme design, Jesus would enter the world through a Virgin receiving the flesh and bones of Adam. He would then be crucified on the Cross and pierced in His side; and although no bone was broken, the Church would become joined to him as bone and marrow. No wonder then that neither Eve nor Mary’s name is used in Revelations 12 describing the woman who would give birth to the Messiah who rules overall. For this woman is clothed by the sun…

For Jesus is the sower, seed, and soil yet we call Him the Son of David.

the prototype

Little ft’s Cross

If we don’t see Christ in all than we’re more prone to make distinctions that are subjective or relative but lacks objectivity. If all things cannot be reconciled to Christ, ultimately giving Him glory and preeminence in everything, then there are things in this world that in no circumstances can be redeemed. Jesus came into the world as one possessing the fullness of Deity, yet as a child appeared to men as one who is helpless; one who is immature and ignorant and dependent on the care of others. Just how knowledgeable and powerful was Jesus when he was in the manger? And if he is the life of all men, to what extent are our children like Him?

2And having summoned a child, He set it in their midst, 3’Truly I tell you’, He said, “unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Therefore whoever humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

What age was the child brought to the disciples? Teenager? Kid? Toddler? Baby?

 What a hidden miracle it would’ve been if Jesus brought before the disciples a living fetus!

Does Jesus require us to become like unborn children? If so, how does this play in the lifestyle of self-denial?

THE BEAST AND LEGEND – Revive Us Again – Rodney East

Healed M-Brie-O

One of the things I’m learning is that sometimes, to receive reinvigoration, you have to let down things that burden you. This life is filled with people and things who will heap concern upon concern on you without ever considering lifting up your load. And there are others, who haven’t climbed any mountain but will insist on telling you to go up higher. It’s difficult for me to imagine the plight many are in right now. You know there are women who were raped and is now with child. Children who have been caught up in trafficking rings are with child after being at the whims of men. There are women who during pregnant are being told that there is a high chance for them dying in giving birth. And yet there are leaders in the church who knowing that God shuts up the wombs and causes miscarriages, will insist that abortion is inherently evil.

Heartbeat – Doobie Powell

Bbo Right Now

As we get ready to close, we just want to reiterate the idea that its possible our children are smarter and powerful than what we think them to be. By children I’m not merely talking about kids in the flesh, but in the Spirit. This conversation may be a huge contrast to what people are used to hearing and what some leaders have preached their entire careers. And my sincere hope is that after laying down solid arguments, when it comes to issues of giving birth or abortion there will be less judging and more objective studies case by case. Just because someone doubles down and holds an opinion doesn’t make it the ultimate reality. Neither does it mean it should be followed no matter how popular. A good sign someone is pointing to absolute truth is in their inclusiveness, and not exclusivity. I hope discrimination on these issues will not continue like the issues of racism, sexism and slavery.

 A good sign someone is pointing to absolute truth is in their inclusiveness and not exclusivity.

Two trains of thoughts to help center ourselves in redeeming abortion. 1.) Can the child choose to bear the Cross of Christ to death while in the womb? And 2.) If a parent doesn’t want to birth a child into sin and a world of suffering, is that an act of love?

I bring these concerns because truly, truly I tell you, as long as anyone looks to the flesh and the things that are seen, they will ignore the things God has freely given us; the things that come without labor and without cost. May these words serve as the directive to enter into God’s rest and put away the comparisons; the envy and discontent, the low self-esteem and need for approval. For it is in this place a person finds freedom as they enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore,

My Queen,

It gives me great pleasure to remind us who we were so that we can see who we truly are in Christ. You see the work and the worlds that I’m building. I can’t imagine changing our world without you by my side. My love and Mother of our Children, you heard my cries and felt my tears. You saw my scars and kissed me there. Who would’ve thought this tiger could lose his stripes? We will suffer the cross and we will suffer no more. So, here’s a little kiss to remind you how close we are. Although we’ve had sorrows, in Him there’s a greater joy. Let all of God’s children rejoice in the LORD.

I’ll write one more part on this subject for the road. Until then, take care loves.

1 “Sing, O barren one, who did not bear;

break forth into singing and cry aloud,

you who have not been in labor!

For the children of the desolate one will be more

than the children of her who is married,” says the Lord.

Sikhing in Redemption

Looking Sink

Exploring Religious Text

FOREWARD: I do not speak Punjab and I have little exposure to Hindi. Learning Hindi was practical for me due to the nature of work I had to do in the past. The goal is to find Christ’s Immanence in all text; something that is easier to do within Abrahamic Religions than outside. The path of seeing Christ in all calls out to me as a deep longing I hold. I made this post public to invite those who are intrigued by such notions to join me in this Journey of Discovering Christ.

The following is an excerpt of the first Vaars of Bhai Gurdas ji. Vaars in this context is referring to literature within Sikhism and shouldn’t be conflated with the seven days of week in Hinduism.

The seed has borne fruit.  (2-4-7)
At first, I was breathless, but I could not hear anything.  (2-4-7)
ਰਕਤ ਬਿੰਦ ਕੀ ਦੇਹ ਰਚ ਪਾਂਚ ਤਤ ਕੀ ਜੜਤ ਜੜਾਈ॥ (2-4-7)
The wind and the water merge with the fourth earth without hesitation.  (2-4-7)
In the Punch, the Creator of the sky is absorbed in the sixth invisible.  (1-7)
The five elements, twenty-five times the enemy, the friend, the body together.  (2-4-7)

NOTE: The numbers after the text looks like they belong to a musical system. There seems to be a common theme of salvation in Eastern Religions. If salvation is in Jesus alone, there needs to be more objective proof in words and deeds. The phrase, ‘In the Punch,’ I believe is more likely to refer to a place in India rather than some juice or action.  

QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:

When reconciling foreign cultures, it’s good practice to NOT conflate names and take note of titles. How can we find Jesus in the passage?

What similarities are there with the Vaars and the Bible? What are the differences?

What are the five elements being referred here in the poem? In what ways is such knowledge useful and irrelevant?

Ask, and it will be given you; SIKH, and you shall find, knock, and the door shall be opened to you. Matt 7:7 ESV Eisegesis added

Reckless Organ Donors: Part One

Pipe Organ Header

There are certain issues that shouldn’t be addressed as it brings about too much tension. And there are some issues that you have to confront as it’s silent prejudices brings forth subtle separation in society. Abortion is one of those subjects that can be dangerously wielded to bring about unbalanced power and influence. Historically we have seen ethical stigmas attached to such practices as inherently evil and we want to dispel those myths. Hopefully, I won’t have to write several articles defending this case, but for now let’s give a sound Biblical argument which helps level judgments on the matter.

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters—yes, even his own life—he cannot be My disciple. Lu 14:26 BSB [Emphasis Added]

Freckled Sea

Ill Mind of Hopsin 7

A struggling songwriter once wrote the line,

It’s us, find power

Live life, mind power

It’s us, find power

Live life, mind power

All too often, people are hindered from approaching God due to the systems of teachings that brought undue blemishes to a person’s reputation. Many assumptions were made; that the Bible made clear this practice is wrong or right – and in some cases – that’s true. Unfortunately, many leaders have overstepped Biblical Authority in giving Christian Ethics that were either prescribed practices the Bible was silent on and/or where there were discrepancies. If Christians can understand that righteousness comes from faith in Christ alone, then we would refrain from judging others by what things look or sound like.

If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell. Matt 5:29-30 ESV

Three questions about this passage:

  1. How do those Scriptures confine one in its immediate context? What ways does it liberate?
  2. Does the following passage suggest practicing Eisegesis? If so, under what context can we hint at cancelling or overwriting the text?
  3. How could this passage speak to the issue of Abortion? Does it speak in favor or against it? Can it speak in favor of both?

Less of a Sign

Not barking up the wrong tree here but if you frequently drive between lanes, you’re Haagen Daaz. No Jairy you’re a whole anonymousness. I’mma need you to go get some help. It may appear to some that I’m the quintessential con man due to my waywardness in speech. I’ll protest in defense of this ‘froward’ (as some will claim) attitude that is doesn’t stem from a delight in evil. Rather this is the decisive outgrowth of being rooted in Christ. Like how that little man Paul was as he was writing to the Philippians. And we all know how great of a disciple Paul was. He extended an invitation to those who would be of the same family to imitate him and other mature Christians in the faith to sacrifice all for Jesus. Should Christians surrender all to Jesus? Sounds like a simple answer right? Apparently not for pro-lifers, who insist that the birthing of children is immune from all reproach; that unborn children have the right to be born and to strip that away is of utmost wickedness. Like God would never say to a couple expecting, “I know you’re in the middle of pregnancy, but I need you to drop that and follow me.”

Fascinating! For a second there I thought somebody was starting a party. Factions happen when we conveniently skew the facts and omit details. I know some of us have been raised well and have gone to the finest schools and have gotten straight A’s. Notwithstanding an impeccable record, it would become meaningless as one follows the ways of God. How interesting is it to find the most precious of blessings to become the lowest of grades. No I’m talking about children here – including – the unborn child. Because when it comes to one’s life and it’s relationship with Christ, you’ll know the difference between the sheep and the goats by those who said F’ DEM KIDS!!!

The prototype

Either/Or or Both

Let’s go ahead and clear up somethings before fake news goes out and say that I’m preaching about shirking from responsibility or cruelly damaging others for pleasure. Because we know especially in the context of the Black Community, this narrative has the Monopoly over the Black Man. Are you bored that I insist on talking about Black Issues? I guess things would be more Flava full if I started rapping or talking about our women twerking in the streets. Because at the end of the day, people would rather grift our culture than actually stop the injustices of racism and systematic oppression in our country. There’s another A in the whole anonymousness department.

What is the mathematical formula for the volume of cylinders?

A godly man knows that the worship of God is superlative to all other loves. The forsaking of all is not to live some frivolous life in fancied piety, but to position oneself to take more active roles in serving others. A godly man will remove all obstacles in his way to get to the Father, so that in return he may be a father to the fatherless. May this provide some clarity of possibilities to those who were raised in broken homes. Some were scarred by parents who passed away while they were young, others were immature and couldn’t handle the responsibility, and yet others were complete douchebags. It may be difficult for you to find a place in your heart to truly honor your parents, and that’s why God calls you to Himself first. You’re brought to the Father so that not only are you healed in Christ, you also become the child that makes their parents proud – yes even – birth new life into your parents through the resurrecting power of the Spirit.

The forsaking of all is not to live some frivolous life in fancied piety, but to position oneself to take more active roles in serving others.

THE PROTOTYPE

The Black Donnie

No matter how you look at it, if you don’t clothe yourself with the righteousness of Christ, you can forget it. For those who trust in letters will eventually be condemned by them. We missed a mark didn’t we?

And he said to them, “You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition! 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘Whoever reviles father or mother must surely die.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man tells his father or his mother, “Whatever you would have gained from me is Corban”’ (that is, given to God)[d]— 12 then you no longer permit him to do anything for his father or mother, 13 thus making void the word of God by your tradition that you have handed down. And many such things you do.” Mark 7:9-13

Let’s not search the Scriptures for Eternal Life missing Jesus in the Way. SIDEBAR: You ever wondered what Jesus’ teenage years were like? Like did he have the spoiled brat side of Him that he had to keep in check because he could do a job on a mug. This temptation had to go through his mind at some point – as soon as he saw someone he disliked:

Jesus: OH so you wanna be donkey eh? Let’s see how silly you gonna be once I put you to sleep. Nail you right in that coffee…

***sips tea while chuckling***

***Friend comes in***

Friend: Hey Jesus!

Jesus wakes from his tempting scheme

Jesus: Oh Hi O, didn’t see you there.

Friend: Hey, did you hear about Nimrod? He kicked the bucket while milking Johnny’s cows!

Jesus: WELL HAAGENITY DAAZ, do you know what he died from?

No, in all seriousness though, can you imagine what it would be like to be tempted in every way and yet not make a mistake? To be Lord of all, and yet be disciplined by the rod of correction is a awe filled wonder of the nature of Christ. What weight is lifted in simply trusting and following Him!

The Name’s Connor

As we take further descent into Christology, we’ll close this blog out with a reverberated idea; how absurd is it that Jesus who is the driving force behind the creation of all things, does not properly enter the world until the appointed time! For Jesus is the sower, seed, and soil yet we call Him the Son of David. How many times was the mission of redemption aborted before it was time to fulfill prophecy?

chapter one

1These are the words of James: one of the many servants in the Chi; which he heard regarding Israel during the last days of Trump, and in the days of Joe President of the United States, and Xi Jinping President of the People’s Republic of China, one year before the Great Quake.

2This is what was seen and heard, those who have an ear to hear, let them hear:

“The winds would have guided you,

And the currents would carry along.

The trees have disclosed secrets;

Of the embers to come.

3Had you paid attention,

You would have known of my dangers,

For the LORD’s voice buzzed amongst many flowers,

Now shall he drone bellows below!”

4Thus saith the LORD:

“When Judah and Simeon hung up their bowed instruments,

They were utterly defeated amongst the Caananites;

They were chased away by the sword and robbed and plundered.

I the LORD have humbled them before the nations,

Could you not see this?”

Judgement on washington

5And the LORD said to me:

“Speak in the ears of the rulers who stand by the gates,

‘I have opened the windows of heaven on you,

And blessed you with everything you could desire,

I gave you wisdom and surrounded you with learned men,

They’ll be Some Changes Made – Dinah Washington

But your heart became proud and did not fear me.

6O Obsidian and Leviathan do you see this?

Even the serpent knows that wickedness will not be exalted forever,

Yet these men build towers to oppress my people.

7Therefore what I will do to them shall be a surprise.

Their downfall shall come not from the mighty, but from babes.

Children shall open their mouths – even the children of Jerusalem,

8And their lofts shall fall to the ground quicker than lightning.

Terror shall scatter your wizards and men of knowledge.

You will seek them for counsel, and they will tell you lies.

9For you have deceived my people,

And enriched yourself while perverting their ways.

10The heart of Jacob shall be strengthened,

And Judah shall restore worship in the temple of God.

11It shall occupy the households of Hebron,

And the extended lands shall wither.’”

12Thus saith the LORD:

“ O, Shepherds, mourn for the lost children of Zion.

Knowledge has been despised in the land.

13The men have been emasculated through oppression,

And the women are led to prostitution through poverty.

14My kings have been led into exile,

And queens abandoned to rule alone.

15For wickedness has spread upon the earth,

And the light of the LORD is withheld from them.

3And God said,

The D in KnowleDge

DareDevil Logo

Don’t be two # because people won’t appreciate it and will challenge you. You know I’ll be the first to admit I’m not too fond of the saying ‘Starting over from scratch’, because ‘The Devil is in the Details’. That was before I was acquainted with the whole truth and the nature of unity. The sorrows that knowledge brings is like an onion; a hard peel to swallow. You can relate to that feeling I’m sure of. 

If I speak openly, it’s in Defense of the Gospel and to offend the rulers who oppress others with lies. If I’m quiet, it’s in ambition to lead a quiet life and to let my faith spread everywhere so that I along with the saints and the Heavenly hosts need not say another word.

So to give another Devotional, we will answer a baseless claim as we rightfully Divide the word of Truth.

No one is established by wickedness, but the root of the righteous will never be moved. – Proverbs 12:3

ESV

If I could get a dollar for how many people have become rich by scamming others, I’d be a millionaire. Of course, this isn’t what this Proverb is really hinting at for these words are spiritual.

Two things we’ll do with the first clause so we can get the bigger picture.

1.) We’ll emphasize a word 

2.) We’ll add a word for clarity [ Known as Eisegesis ]

Dark Sayings of the Wise

No one IS established made permanent by wickedness, but and the ROOT of the righteous will never be moved.

Because on the way to the cross, Jesus took upon our infirmities, our weakness; our sins. And although the Beauty of the Divine was upon Him, he masked himself so that there was nothing to desire. There was much ugliness in his afflictions all the way to Death. 

He was beaten and bruised so that he would be the cream of the crop. Isn’t it strange that God would command his own beating? Talk about a hellthy dose of self-hatred.

Whip it. Whip it. WICKED GOOD. 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Is 5:20

13When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, 14having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Col 2:13-14

Or in other words, while you are in the middle of doing dirty deeds (although we shouldn’t be sinning willfully) Christ’s resurrecting life is at work in you in accordance to your faith in Him.

No De nada

What amazing truth to know that God sent His Son to die for us! How obscure is it to know that this was predestined and not fulfilled until the appropriate time. For orthodoxy believes that Jesus is the firstborn of all creation. Yet he was not born until the days of Herod, in a manger and through the Spirit. Talk about abortion and pro-choice!!! Do we really believe that we should allow EVERY desire conceived to give birth? 

Article written by Jesuit Priest James Martin, S. J.

Sorry, but not sorry. I had to put it that way. Monists typically get the most flack when we put glasses on folks. People tend to see double and we like to avoid DVision. We gonna bond in this Aston Martin or no?

For those who are struggling with this notion of abortion as if Jesus said nothing about it we’ll take a D-tour so that it is abundantly clear that Jesus did speak of these things being Lord over PRO-LIFE AND PRO-CHOICE. 

It’s been said that those who believe in abortion are fake Disciples, but truly truly I say to you whatever a man leaves for my sake shall receive a hundredfold in the age to come.
