A Picture (Bible/Life) Book!

I Had Two Copies Of The Same Book
AND
I Have Read Them Both!
Both Gave Instruction
BUT
Problem
Big Problem
The Instruction Between Them Diverged!

The Beginning Was Good:

  • Acquire A Meek And Quiet Spirit!
  • Walk And Work For God!
  • Confess The Lord Christ!
  • Tell The Truth For The Times In Which We Live!
  • Get Wisdom!
  • Get Understanding!
  • Do What The Word Says!
  • Be Instant In Prayer!
  • Do Not Fear!
  • Trust And Obey!
  • Grace And Mercy Abounds Each Day!
  • Honor Your Father And Mother!
  • Keep The Sabbath!
  • Bless God!
  • Walk In The Light!
  • From Evil-Doers Keep Away!
  • Don't Follow A Multitude To Do Evil!
  • Give Your Back To The Devil!
  • From The Good Shepherd - Don't Stray!

And On!
And On ...!

BUT ...

When I Read About
Putting Christ First In One's Life's Dealings
THAT
Is Where My Antennae Perked
Rose Up!

I Had No Problem
With The Word Of The Good Book
BUT
I Had Me A Real Problem
With The Book Of The Lived Life
For
When The Lived-Life Book
Diverges From 
The Good Book Of Life
Of The Life To Be Lived
It Can Be Seen Of A Surety
That
The Good Book Of Life
Has No Part In
The Life Book
Of The Life Lived!

Tongue Twister Alert!!

Mind Bender Is More Like It!

People Read The Bible
AND
They Believe The Word
BUT
Then They See The Lives Lived
By Practicing Real-Life Christians
AND
Their Belief Gets Treated
As One Would A Dog Turd!

Christian Lives Speak
More Loudly
Than The Book That They Bespeak
When The Christian Living
Eclipses
The Word Of The Lord
BECAUSE
The Living Of The Christian
SAYS
That Their Living IS Sinning
For They Take
What The Devil Is Giving
AND
Their Lived Lives
DENY
The Word Of The Only God Living!

Wait! Wait! Wait!
Enough With The Mind Bends!
Cut To The Chase!
Give Me A Plain Word
... If You Can!

Okay. Okay!
It Is Like This:

The Christian Life
Should Be Identical To
The Very Life Of Christ!
The Life A Christian Leads
Should Comport
With The Good Book They Read
AND
To Others Sell
AND SHOULD NOT BE
The Book Is Good
BUT
The Real Life Is Lived
As One Who Works
For The Very Devil From Hell!
That's A Hard Sell!

Strong Words ...!

... Nevertheless The Truth!

Shouldn't The Life Lived 
Say
That The One Reading The Good Book
IS
By The Good Book Daily Fed?!

Indeed!
Nevertheless
Too Many Of Us Christians
Live ... To Straddle The Fence!
We Want To Tell The World
What To Do
BUT
We Have No Time Ourselves
To Do What The Good Book Says To Do!

Preachhhhhh!

Do As I Say
AND
Not As I Do
IS
A Sure Fire Way
To Get God
To Let Go Of You
FOR
What We Will Be Doing
IS
A Little Good Living
AND
A Little Good Sinning
AND THEREBY
We Are Telling God
That He Is Not Good Enough
Nor
God Enough
To Get Us To Stop Sinning
So That The Saintly Life Lived
Is Our New Life Beginning!

Sounds Kinda Presumptuous, Doesn't It?!

It Is
BUT
We Still Do It Anyhow!

Isn't That Being A Bold Sinner?!

It Is!






Imagine This:


Cemetery
Grave
Grave Stone
Epitaph:

Here Lies Good Christian!
He Was A Good And Complete Fraud!
He Walked Good With The Devil
AND
He Preached Good For The Lord!



You Lie!!

No, I Don't!
If You See
How Some Of Us Christians Live
You Will Know Of A Surety
That For The Word Of The Living God
They Give Not A Single Fig!

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words!

Is Your Picture
A Picture Of Your Words
Or
Is Your Picture A Negative Of The Words
That Others
- From You -
Have Heard?

Something To Think About ...!

... Seriously!
