#ScriptureOrScience – #YOUchoose

Scripture Isa 13.10 “For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.”

Modern “science” says that the moon is merely a reflector (something they cannot prove) – God says (in more than one location) that the moon has its OWN light.

Which will YOU believe?  Your belief may spell you eternally destiny!

O beautiful, beautiful lesser light;

Made by God the rule the night,

I see thee on thy continuous flight,

Showing the cloud, as a furrow plowed.


Now vapor has hid the wondrous glow,

The obliqueness of the cloud to show,

But slowly conquer o’er the foe,

And light comes down, from thy crown.


So ride thou on through the night sky;                             

May men, like me, always “where and why,”

Thy greatness, as you effortlessly fly.

Thou shining orb, our thoughts absorb.


Mysterious, Inspiring, Mobile Sphere [1] .

Solitary, Polished, Sentinel of the Exosphere.  

– eab, Apr. ’66

Drop Darwin

We’re made by God, wonderful thought;

We did not come from some primeval “rot”

Swim through slime and slither up on land

To wiggle, crawl, and eventually stand.

We’re not the product of a Darwinian tale

Spun to sidestep God.

No. Man was created endowed with a will

That could “cook up” such ilk and ill

And try to pretend with the mind God gave

That death is the end; the end is the grave.

Man, made in the image of the Highest mind

Lives on and on, as all atheists soon find

Once they’re below sod.

In a commercial age there’s an appeal

To items that are “hand-made.”

God though using a man and a maid

Is still the Author of you and your wife.

Drop Darwin. Honor God with all of your life.

My community (when in grade school) had a man whose mind was boyish.

His last name (as I understood) was Guisinger; someone dubbed him “Goofy Guisinger;” the name stuck. Though I never had a discussion with him I imagine he believed in God. If so, he was mentally limited but no fool. There are many PhDs worse than Goofy Guisinger. “The FOOL hath said in his heart, There is no God” (Psa 14.1). Another verse comes to mind, “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools” (Rom 1.22). “Professing” is strikingly close to “professor.” A third fits, “Which some professing have erred concerning the faith…” (1Ti 6.21), this immediately follows Paul’s warning about “science falsely so called…” Many “science” profs do not believe in Christ and are trying to find “life” aside from Him.

April fool’s IS their special day!

The Word

Genesis 3. 22 – 23

“And the LORD God said, ‘Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:

and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:’

“Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.”

Too “good” to go to hell?

The very concept flies in the face of God.

God does for His servants as He see best;

Some have activity, others have rest.

Several don work clothes, some suit and vest,

Some are far from home, some near their nest,

Some face life’s low load with a heavy chest,

Several sing and whistle high on the crest.

But all His known servants have passed His test;

They’ll gather soon from northeast to southwest.

Never forget, Child, God knows what is best.

Tertullian is thought to have been born 4/27/c.155 (160?) AD at Carthage (now in Tunisia) to pagan parents; his father a Roman centurion, perhaps part of an African-based legion assigned to the provincial governor.  His works indicate he received a good Carthaginian education including (but not necessarily limited to) grammar, rhetoric, literature, philosophy. He later traveled to Rome possibly to further his training (although Carthage was second only to Rome in culture & education) & may have studied law while there.   

One thing he did “learn” in Rome was the way Christians were being executed. He saw the courage which sustained them as they faced hideous deaths.  This startled him into investigating their Belief & eventually led to his conversion to Jesus Christ 197-198(?).  He was definitely married (addressed two books to his wife) but her name is lost in the dusty past. Tertullian was the first Christian penman to use Latin as a writing language but of his 31 extant works at least 3 were written in Greek.

Tertullian definitely did NOT (nor the Roman Catholics) create the concept of a Trinity. At least 13 verses list All Three of the God-Head in one verse but he appears to first to pen “trinity” described as “One God in Three Persons” (classic trinitarian formula). He was unhappy with compromise he witnessed coming into the church & wrote against encroachments rather than producing a systematic theology. His honesty did not win him friends among the “Churchmen” & one source said he died (c. 225-240) “separated from full communion with the bishops of the Catholic Church” a positive (rather than a negative) assessment.

Tertullian Quotes:

“One Person in Two Natures” – describing Christ

“The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church” – another of his famous phrases 

“What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?” – as pagan philosophies came – a question we still need to hear!

“Behold the fowls of the air:

for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;

yet your heavenly Father feedeth them.

Are ye not much better than they?”
