    Christian ethics require that we believers, in the words of an important theologian, work.  Why?  Because ‘Every person capable of rendering service is under an obligation to render service, that is, to the rejection of unearned income, economic luxury, or a parasitical existence.’  Work is ordained of God.  Laziness is not.

    I don’t understand why it is that while God gives us so much grace, we do so little with it; and while he gives us so much love, we remain unfaithful.

        In 1860 P.H. Mell wrote - “When your brother trespasses against you, he sins against God also, and against his own soul. How much more noble, then, is it for you, keeping your own heart right, to reform and “gain,” your brother than to come off victorious over your brother in mortal conflict.” So true. Jesus tells us to love one another, not overcome one another.

    Man’s Words

    Like sharp dagger, our words inflicting pain
    a blade of mayhem, without  Good to gain
    Do your words cut, it’s reciever to their core
    When one gets revenge
    on others He’ll gore

    Two  words “I’m sorry” ne’er much to heals
    whole made by a knife, it’s revenge one feels
    things in life once done, never be undone
    there remains scar upon that wounded one

    Scars are reminders of fury that has passed

    It is no mistake that Paul will say ‘all have sinned and come short of God’s glory’. All are sinners. The only thing that differentiates the saved from the lost is grace received or grace rejected.

    Why are there atheists? Martin Luther explains it thusly- “The world will neither hold God for God, nor the devil for the devil. And if a man were left to himself, to do after his own kind and nature, he would willingly throw our Lord God out at the window; for the world regards God nothing at all, as the Psalm says: The wicked man saith in his heart, there is no God.”

    Knightmare dejavu

    I “dreamed” of the
    “pivotal” slice of life,
    Laying upon my old “conscious” brain.
    Such “charisma” is in “clairvoyant” strife
    In my “lucid” state thought
    to be insane
    “Charisma!” I shout
    “Dejavu” again.”
    The same “soporific” dream then came
    This tacit, rendezvous of
    old flame
    Leaving me like any “yearning” dame.
