This post, I want to get into the many other distractions of Satan. If you would like to get the lead-in to this post, click here.
Ever wonder, what in the world is going on in this world? I’d like to give you another acronym for KISS. Wikipedia tells us in part: KISS is an acronym for “Keep it simple, stupid” as a design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960. The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
I believe all we see that exists is a KISS “design principle” used by God in the creation of everything. To us it may be complicated, much like a small child watching his or her father, a mechanic, working on the engine of a car. But for the father, having mastered his craft, it is a simple task.
The most important thing that separates mankind from all other species on earth is our right to choose. It’s that simple. No other species on our planet has the right to make choices that effect all other living things on earth. By all rights, we having been created in the image of our creator, and are the most intelligent species on our planet. If you were Satan, how would you misdirect the human species away from God? The same way he did in the Garden of Eden. By making something simple, complicated. God simply stated to Adam and Eve. Don’t eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad and you will continue to live. Eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and bad and you will die. Simple.
Hello and welcome back to K.I.S.S.I.T. I hope you found my last blog, ‘Is God Real?’ interesting. This week we will be discussing a topic, hellfire and brimstone, that I had questions about when I was very young.
Just say it out loud and how does it make you feel?
Hellfire and Brimstone!
Hellfire and brimstone is a topic that is highly defended by those who believe in this place of eternal torment. My opinion about hell is not why we are here. I am here to present to you what I have found from my research in both the bible and other sources. I am not asking anyone to believe what I am about to put forth. You have the right to believe whatever you chose; you even have the right not to believe in any of this. However, if you want to keep it scripturally simple, then let us get started!
In my first blog I stated that, according to the bible, we are created in God’s image … our capacity to love or forgive all comes from God. If I were to ask you, “If you had the power to burn someone that you disliked very much for all eternity, would you do it?” I am hoping most of you would answer, ‘No.’
Okay, so why should we believe that God would partake in this horrific deed? Why would God burn people for all eternity due to disobedience? Let us see what we can find out from the bible.
Think about what the bible is stating here for a minute. Adam, who God created from the dust of the earth, was dead until God blew the breath of life into him, and then he became a living soul. That is how life came to be … so what about death?
