“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature

after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth

after his kind: and it was so.” Gen 1.24

>> I’ll easily take Sovereign God’s “after his kind” over a silly evolutionist’s “missing link.” <<

“There never was found in any age of the world

either religion or law

that did so highly exalt the public good as the Bible.”

We live in three worlds:

The real, the imaginary, and the dream.

The real has nuts and bolts and such

And quit clutters our lives with lint.

The imaginary we can fill day or night

With things we like to invent.

But the world of dreams is different

Its neither tangible nor created by us;

It opens without our behest

And closes again without fuss.

It is peopled by friends known long ago

Or by strangers, strangers who came at night.

Dreams mix-up our acquaintances

Until, though out of place, seem right.

Dreams can scare us into awakening

So glad the cliff or lion scene

Was not quit completed, or if so

The lion wasn’t even mean.

Or dreams can send us into a humorous world

Where logic can go or stay,

And we ‘waken ourselves laughing

And wonder why it’s colored this way.

Oh, we live in three worlds here and now:

The real, the invented, and dreams

But in the one we control least of all

Is the one famous for its night-time themes.

– eab, Feb. ‘96

ON THIS DATE

Karl Barth (5/10/1886 – 12/10/1968) on 2/24/1967, is said to have written the words below in a letter –

 

“The statement that God is dead comes from Nietzsche (1844-1900) and has recently been trumpeted abroad by some German and American theologians.  But the good Lord has not died of this; He who dwells in the heaven laughs at them.”

 

One may not agree with all this Swiss Reformed theologian said/wrote but there is surely truth here.  There is no Being more ALIVE than God.  Sinners would like God dead so their conscience could be “liberated.”
