    Post Who/What The Schoolmaster Is

    -
    †. Gal 3:24 . .The law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    The koiné Greek word for "schoolmaster" is paidagogos (pahee-dag-o-gos') which defines not a headmaster, nor a teacher, nor a tutor. It essentially defines a servant whose responsibility it was to take their master's children to school. In other words: a sort of chaperone who made sure the kids got there; even if the servant had to take them by the hand to do it.

    The "law" to which the writer refers is the covenant that Yhvh's people agreed upon with God as per Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Although Gentiles aren't contracted with God to comply with the covenant, it's useful for revealing God's feelings about certain kinds of behavior; for example:

    †. Lev 19:11 . . You shall not deal falsely, nor lie to one another.

    Once a Gentile is made aware that their maker disapproves of dishonesty, henceforth they get in hot water every time they lie because God is lenient with uninformed liars but has little patience with scofflaws.

    †. Num 15:30-31 . .The person, be he citizen or stranger, who acts defiantly reviles the Lord; that person shall be cut off from among his people. Because he has spurned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment, that person shall be cut off-- he bears his guilt.

    So; what might "cut off" amount to? Well; for one: no liar will be allowed entrance to the holy city.

    †. Rev 21:27 . . No one who practices lying shall ever come into it

    †. Rev 22:14-15 . . Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. But outside are whoever loves and practices a lie.

    The law's task then; is to instill fear in dishonesty, and make liars aware that if they opt to take their chances, and stand before God to be judged on their own merits; that they haven't the slightest, slimmest possibility of coming away unscathed. It's a 110% forgone conclusion that they will come away dead.

    †. Rev 21:8 . . All liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.

    I am willing to bet that nobody can get through the day without dishonesty-- we need dishonesty, we have to have dishonesty or interactions with our friends, with strangers, with associates, with superiors and loved ones would be very strained indeed. It is just humanly impossible to be honest all the time. I would even go so far as to say that in the world in which we live; it's not smart to be 110% honest all the time; viz: "Honesty is the best policy" just isn't true; not in the world we live in anyway; which is a bit of a catch-22.

    Q: Why does everyone find it so easy to lie?

    A: Because human beings are natural-born liars.

    †. Ps 58:3 . . The wicked are estranged from the womb; these who speak lies go astray from birth.

    That's an interesting statement. It's saying-- in so many words --that although infants are too young to lie; they are born with a proclivity to lie, and that's what makes them wicked because that proclivity to lie is in them and will eventually have its way with them.

    Q: How are people supposed to obey that commandment seeing as how we're all natural-born liars?

    A: Nobody can, it's impossible.

    †. Jer 13:23 . . Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? Then you also can do good who are accustomed to doing evil.

    Well; the Schoolmaster's goal is not just to frighten liars and make them nervous; but also to show them the God-given way out of their predicament.

    †. Gal 3:24 . .The law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.

    The cross' first and foremost purpose was to satisfy justice for liars. That right there should make liars breathe a little easier in respect to the sum of all fears.

    †. 1John 2:1-2 . . If anyone sins, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and he himself is the propitiation for our sins; and not for ours only, but also for those of the whole world.

    †. Isa 53:6 . . All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on him.

    Post The Flesh

    -
    †. Rom 8:13 . . 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.

    The koiné Greek word for flesh is sarx (sarx); which essentially indicates the meaty parts of either man or beast. The meat of the human body would of course include the 3-pound lump of flabby organic tissue housed within everyone's bony little skull sufficing for a mind. In other words: sans the meaty part of their body called the brain; people would not have a mind. In point of fact, it's not all that difficult to tamper with a brain and make its owner quite mindless.

    The meaty parts of the human body are the source of a human being's human nature and it isn't all that difficult to define. Webster's says its (1) the ways of thinking, feeling, and acting that are common to most people, and (2) the nature of humans; especially the fundamental dispositions and traits of humans. In a nutshell then: the flesh, as per Rom 8:13, can be concisely defined as that which comes natural to a particular species of life.

    Ironically, it has never been okay for people to live according to that which comes natural even though when God finished manufacturing the cosmos' various forms of life, matter, and energy; He pronounced it all not just good; but "very" good. In other words, God was satisfied that human nature came out just exactly as He designed it to come out. But the odd part of that is: mankind's creator has never wanted people to so make human nature their lead to the point of excluding God having a say.

    So; right from the gun, it has been God's desire that people heed their maker rather than always and only heeding their body; and when I say "body" I'm speaking of the senses, the impulses, and the natural predilections and proclivities produced by the human body-- it's organs, its chemistry, and its central nervous system.

    †. Rom 7:18 . . I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me

    In other words: human nature has wants, and will do all in its power to persuade people to satisfy those wants; even against their better judgment.

    Post Eternal Life

    -
    Though eternal life is immortal; eternal life isn't immortality. For instance when Christ says: "I assure you, those who heed my message, and trust in God who sent me, have eternal life" he isn't saying that they have immortality. The proof of that is all around us. Every day, around the clock, Christ's believing followers die all the time, just like everybody else. In point of fact, Christ had eternal life (John 5:26, 1John 1:2) yet was easily executed.

    When it comes to comparisons; eternal life is far and away superior to human life; which is a creature kind of life that had its beginning in the first chapter of Genesis. In contrast, eternal life is not a creature kind of life, nor did it have a beginning because eternal life always is.

    †. Ex 3:13-14 . . Moses protested: If I go to the people of Israel and tell them the god of your ancestors has sent me to you; they won't believe me. They will ask: Which god are you talking about? What is his name?' Then what should I tell them? God replied: I am the one who always is. Just tell them: "I am has sent me to you."

    In other words: eternal life is one of the qualities of divinity.

    †. 1John 1:1-2 . .That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched-this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.

    I don't know how He does it; but God is able to share His kind of life with humans.

    †. John 17:2-3 . .You granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

    That passage is popular with the Watch Tower Society's missionaries as a definition of eternal life; but I seriously doubt it should be used that way. I think Christ was simply saying that eternal life is specifically the only kind of life that can really get to know the only true God and His son Jesus Christ.

    For example: does anybody really know what it's like to think and/or to feel like a porcupine or a termite or a humming bird? No; of course not because people have human nature rather than the nature of porcupines, termites, and/or humming birds.

    We all relate rather well to our fellow men because we all have human life; but we cannot relate to God at all because His is divine life whereas ours is creature life; viz: a divine being and a creature being have about as much chance of relating as prairie dogs and sequoia cacti.

    In other words: when Christ bestows eternal life upon the people whom God has given him; it imparts to them divine nature; thus making it possible for his people to relate to divinity on its level instead of only a creature's level.

    †. 2Pet 1:3-4 . . His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, in order that by them you might become partakers of the divine nature.

    Post How People Obtain Eternal Life

    -
    People get eternal life basically the same way they get an iPhone 6-- they contact a distributor of the product they want. In this case, there is but one authorized distributor: God's son.

    †. John 17:2 . .You have given him authority over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as You have given him.

    This is actually a lot easier than most folks realize. Take for example the experience of the five-times married woman shacking up with a man in Samaria that Jesus once encountered on his travels. In metaphoric language, he informed her that she could have eternal life just by asking him for it.

    †. John 4:10-15 . . Jesus said to her: If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you "Give me a drink" you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.

    . . . She said to him: Sir, You have nothing to draw with and the well is deep; where then do you get that living water? You are not greater than our father Jacob, are you, who gave us the well, and drank of it himself, and his sons, and his cattle?

    . . . Jesus answered and said to her: Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again; but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

    So, in order to get the ball rolling: one must first have some understanding of the "gift of God".

    †. John 3:14-17 . . As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whoever believes may in him have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    The incident to which Christ referred is located at Num 21:5-9. Long story short: Yhvh's people became weary of eating manna all the time at every meal. But instead of courteously, and diplomatically, petitioning their divine benefactor for a different diet, they became hostile and confrontational; angrily demanding tastier food.

    In response to their insolence, and their ingratitude for His providence; Yhvh sent a swarm of deadly poisonous vipers among them; which began striking people; and every strike was 100% fatal, no exceptions. Then the people came to their senses and asked Moses to intercede. In reply; The Lord instructed Moses to fashion an image of the vipers and hoist it up on a pole in plain view so that everyone dying from venom could look to the image for relief.

    The key issue here is that the image was the only God-given remedy for the people's bites-- not sacrifices and offerings, not tithing, not church attendance, not scapulars, not confession, not holy days of obligation, not the Sabbath, not the golden rule, not charity, not Bible study and/or Sunday school, not self denial, not vows of poverty, not the Ten Commandments, not one's religion of choice, no; not even prayers. The image was it. In other words then: Christ's crucifixion is the only God-given escape from the wrath of God; and when people accept it, then according to John 3:14-17 and John 4:10-15, they qualify for eternal life and the only thing left to do is speak up and tell Christ they want in.

    †. Rev 22:17 . .The Spirit and the bride say: Come. Let each one who hears them say: Come. Let the thirsty ones come-- anyone who wants to. Let them come and drink the water of life without charge.

    Post How Christ Is Related To Adam

    -
    I was taught in catechism that seeing as how Jesus Christ's mother was a virgin when he was conceived, then he didn't have a human father. That notion is easy to debunk.

    According to the book of Genesis; God created Adam's flesh from the earth's dust. Not so Eve.

    She was constructed from a human tissue sample amputated from Adam's side. Thus Eve's flesh wasn't the flesh of a second species of h.sapiens. Her flesh was biologically just as much Adam's flesh as Adam's except for gender. In other words: Eve was the flip side of the same biological coin. In point of fact, the Bible refers to Eve as Adam just as it refers to Adam as Adam, (Gen 5:22)

    From that point on; any human flesh biologically produced from Eve's flesh-- whether virgin conceived or naturally conceived --would be biologically just as much Adam's flesh as Adam's because the source of its mother's flesh was Adam's flesh.

    †. Gen 3:15 . . I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.

    Just about everybody agrees that the seed spoken of in that passage is Christ. Well; seeing as how his mom's flesh was derived biologically from Eve, then Christ's flesh is just as much Eve's flesh as Eve's, and seeing as how her flesh was just as much Adam's flesh as Adam's, then it's readily deduced that Adam is Christ's biological progenitor.

    It's commonly objected that women cannot provide the Y chromosome necessary for producing a male child. And that's right; they usually can't. However, seeing as how God constructed an entire woman from a sample of man flesh; then I do not see how it would be any more difficult for God to construct a dinky little Y chromosome from a sample of woman flesh. And seeing as how woman flesh is just as much Adam's flesh as Adam's, then any Y chromosome that God might construct from woman flesh would actually be produced from Adam's flesh seeing as how Eve's flesh was produced from Adam's flesh.

    Bottom line: In order to qualify as one of Adam's biological descendants, a person need only be one of Eve's biological descendants: which we all are.

    †. Gen 3:20 . . Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.

    So then; unless somebody can prove-- conclusively and without ambiguity-- that Jesus Christ's mother wasn't biologically related to either Adam or Eve; then we are forced to conclude that Adam is Jesus Christ's biological father.

    Post Jesus Christ And The Original Sin

    -
    Q: If Jesus Christ was made from one of his mother's eggs; wouldn't she have passed the curse of sin down to her son?

    A: Yes; absolutely, because everybody descending biologically from Adam stands condemned for tasting the forbidden fruit. The reason for that is because Adam is humanity, and humanity is Adam; viz: he's all there is because God created no other humanity but Adam. In other words: everyone is just simply more Adam; including Eve because she was derived from Adam's flesh. (Gen 2:21-23, Acts 17:26)

    Note the grammatical tense of the passage below-- it's past tense; indicating that the moment Adam tasted the forbidden fruit, his entire race became guilty of tasting it-- in real time --including those of his race who've yet to be born.

    †. Rom 5:12 . . Sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned

    †. Rom 5:19 . .Through the disobedience of the one man, the many were made sinners.

    Well; the trick is: though Adam's disobedience made his race sinners; it didn't make them sinful: that's something else altogether. We're not talking about the so-called "fallen nature" here, we're just talking about a universal felony, so to speak.

    The good news is: Adam's sin is not a sin unto hell. No; it's very simple to clear his sin off the books seeing as how Adam's demise is the proper satisfaction of justice for his sin (Gen 2:16-17). The satisfaction of justice for his race's own personal sins is another matter.

    Q: If Jesus Christ was made a sinner due to Adam's slip-up, then how can it be honestly said that Christ was a lamb without blemish or spot?

    A: Adam's slip made Christ a sinner right along with everybody else, yes; but it didn't make him sinful; viz: Christ committed no personal sins of his own. (John 8:29, 2Cor 5:21, Heb 4:15, 1Pet 2:22)

    Post How Christ Is Related To Solomon

    -
    Q: Christ's dad, Joseph, biologically descended from Solomon. However, Christ didn't. He biologically descended from Solomon's brother Nathan. But according to the genealogy in Matthew, Christ is in Solomon's line. How so?

    A: At Gen 48:5-7, Jacob adopted his own two biological grandsons Manasseh and Ephraim; thus installing them in positions equal in rank, honor, and power to his twelve original sons, which had the effect of adding additional children to Rachel's brood just as effectively as the children born of her maid Bilhah-- Dan, and Naphtali.

    Jacob's motive for adopting his son Joseph's two sons was in sympathy for his deceased wife being cut off during her child-bearing years, which subsequently prevented her from having any more children of her own. Ephraim and Manasseh bring Rachel's total up to six: two of her own, two by her maid Bilhah, and two by Joseph and his wife Asenath.

    Now, fast-forward to the New Testament where the angel of The Lord spoke to Joseph in a dream and ordered him to take part in naming Mary's out-of-wedlock baby.

    "She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus" (Matt 1:21)

    Joseph complied.

    "And he gave him the name Jesus." (Matt 1:25)

    So Christ went in the books as Joseph's son; because that's how it worked in those days when a man stood with a woman to name her child.

    Bottom line: Heirs to the throne have to be David's progeny by birth-- that much is irrevocable. However, they only have to be Solomon's by law.

    Not too many Jews are happy with the way Christ became heir to David's throne; but who are they to argue with Jacob's precedent? He's the grand paterfamilias of the entire people of Israel; in point of fact, they are identified by Jacob's spiritual name: the one that God himself personally pinned on him very early in their history. (Gen 32:28, Gen 35:10)

    Post What, And Where, Sheol Is

    -
    Sheol is a transliteration of the Hebrew word sheol (sheh-ole'). It's very first appearance in the Bible is the passage below; recording Jacob's reaction upon being informed of his son Joseph's alleged death.

    †. Gen 37:33-35 . . And he recognized it and said: It is my son's tunic. A wild beast has devoured him. Without doubt Joseph is torn to pieces. Then Jacob tore his clothes, put sackcloth on his waist, and mourned for his son many days. And all his sons and all his daughters arose to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted, and he said: For I shall go down into the grave to my son in mourning. Thus his father wept for him.

    The editors of that translation arbitrarily translated sheol as the grave; but the actual Hebrew words for grave are qibrah (kib-raw') and qeburah (keb-oo-raw') for example Gen 35:20 and Gen 50:5 et al.

    Sheol is just a bit more complicated than burial. According to Jonah 2:1-6, sheol is located at the roots of the mountains. Well; I think it goes without saying that mountains aren't rooted in the bellies of fishes; rather: they're rooted deep in the earth; which is exactly why Jonah said the earth beneath imprisoned him rather than the lips of a big fish.

    Q: How could Jonah be in the tummy of a big fish while at the roots of the mountains; viz: both places at the same time?

    A: Jonah was dead; and this is a bit tricky to discern because the second chapter begins with Jonah praying from the innards of the fish just before it regurgitated him out on dry land. But in his pre-regurgitation prayer, Jonah recounts what he prayed while in the belly of sheol; specifically about his resurrection.

    †. Jonah 2:6 . . I went down to the bottoms of the mountains; the earth with her bars was about me for ever: yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O Lord my God.

    Bringing up somebody from corruption (a.k.a. putrefaction) is the language of resurrection; for example Acts 2:23-31 recounts how that Christ's corpse was not left to rot in the tomb; but was revived.

    But where was Christ's soul while his body was interred? Well; according to Acts 2:31 it was in haides (a.k.a. hades) which is the Greek equivalent of sheol; which Jonah sited at the roots of the mountains. So then, just as Jonah's corpse was in the fish's belly while his soul was in sheol's belly, so Christ's corpse was in the tomb's belly while his soul was in hades' belly. And coincidentally, both men's experiences were identical in length.

    †. Matt 12:40 . . For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (cf. Jonah 1:17)

    Well; I should think it wouldn't be necessary to point out that Christ's tomb wasn't located in the heart of the earth. It was on the surface of the earth; and it wasn't even in the earth's soil but was above it in stone.

    NOTE: The Watch Tower Society teaches its Jehovah's Witness missionaries that when a human being dies, it goes completely out of conscious existence, which essentially implies that when Christ died on the cross, he ceased to exist; viz: for three days and three nights, there was no Christ. That belief of course assumes that Christ's soul died on the cross right along with his body; which of course it didn't because assassins can't kill souls.

    †. Matt 10:28a . . Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.

    In other words: the soul doesn't perish along with the demise of one's body. Not that it's impossible; it's just that only God can pull off something like that.

    †. Matt 10:28b . . but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

    The Greek word for "hell" in that verse isn't the haides of Acts 2:25-31. No; this one is geena (gheh'-en-nah) which is much worse than the roots of the mountains: much worse; but I'll spare you the grim details; though if you wish to see them; they're on display at Isa 66:22-24 and Mark 9:47-48.

    Post Is There Really A Hell?

    -
    I watched an educational series on NetFlix in September of 2014 called "The Inexplicable Universe: Unsolved Mysteries" hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson Ph.D. director of the Hayden Planetarium. Mr. Tyson said, in so many words; that in the study of Physics, one must sometimes abandon sense and accept discoveries as they are no matter how contrary to logic they may seem.

    The NASA teams that sent Pioneers, Voyagers and Mariners out to explore the planets came to the very same conclusion: they learned to abandon their logical expectations and instead expect the unexpected; and they encountered plenty.

    In the field of Christianity, as in the fields of Physics and planetary exploration, faith believes what's revealed to it rather than only what makes sense to it. I readily admit that the idea of people existing in conscious suffering to time indefinite makes no sense at all, and seems to totally contradict the nature of a divine patron alleged to be kind, caring, and sympathetic. But just as science admits to many unsolved mysteries; so does Christianity. And there's no shame in that. The shame is in pretending to have complete understanding of a supernatural religion that by its very nature defies reason and common sense.

    Post Knowing Your Religion is Right

    -
    I've been asked several times in the past how I know that my beliefs are true. My answer is: I don't know if they're true. Then of course they follow up with: Then why do you believe your beliefs are true when you have no way of knowing they're true?

    Most of the people who ask me those kinds of questions are genuine: they're not trying to trip me up and make a fool out of me. They really are curious about it. So I tell them that though I don't know if my beliefs are true, my instincts tell me they are; in other words: I cannot shake the conviction that they're true.

    Mark Twain once remarked that he didn't believe in an afterlife; but nevertheless expected one. In other word: he logically concluded that there is no afterlife, but Twain's instincts did not agree with his thinking; and I dare not criticize him for that because even my own religion requires that I believe in my heart rather then only in my head.

    Why does any believer believe what they believe? Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Bahá'í, Hare Krishna, Jehovah's Witness, Mormon, Judaism, Voodoo, Wiccan, Jain, Druze, Native American, etc, etc, etc. The answer is: they like it-- it appeals to them.

    It's a known fact that quite a few of voters do their voting with their gut. In other words, they settle on a candidate based upon how they feel about him, and then use their minds to craft a justification for their choice.

    Take for instance President Barack Hussein Obama. A large block of Americans voted for him solely on the basis of his color rather than on the basis of his executive ability. (Ironically Mr. Obama isn't even Black. He's what used to be called Mulatto but now called Mixed Race; viz: his father was Black, but his mother was White. Lucky for him that his skin turned out dark or he may never have won.)

    Anyway, my point is: I've observed that people typically adhere to a religion not with their mind; but with their feelings: the meanwhile using their minds to fabricate a justification for their choice. Goes on all the time.

    It is of course impossible that all religions are right; that's pretty much a given. But on the other hand, it's very possible that none are right. So I would say that when settling upon a religion, don't worry so much about picking the one that's right; instead pick the one that's right for you; and if none are right for you, then in my estimation; you're just as well off because if your heart's not in it; then let's face it: your choice is no less arbitrary than randomly selecting a cookie out of a jar of 100.
