Faith

The best meme I’ve seen for a long time. “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭KJV‬‬

And civilizations, and witches, and mentally ill, and children, and women, and indigenous tribes and adulterers, and….

  1. It is curiously passive in that the person does nothing but waits for God to do the heavy lifting. Or passive aggressive, I can’t figure out which.

    Then there is the hidden meaning that a human could have godlike powers by believing.

  2. “When it all came down to it, the basic problem was that too many in control felt that only they knew how to fix things. It was a narcissistic and fool-hardy attitude that always ended in failure. The problem was that those that wielded the power considered themselves infallible. They were blind to their own shortcomings and were incapable of change.”
    -W. Browning and A. American, Charlie’s Requiem: Democide. Book 2.

    Referring to the government…
    This short novel is about collapse after an EMP, and the hero’s questioning how the government seems to already be able to respond and deploy care and control almost effortlessly. Like the attack was planned by powers that control the US.

    Thought you might enjoy the coincidence of attitude.

  3. Having just been sentenced to death for support of ISIS in Iraq, a Muslim woman smiles and says “I will finally go to heaven”. The primitivism expressed by her utterance pains me and I dispare for the billions of our diluted brethren.

    1. I know. The Mormons make sure anything the prophet may say comes true. 40 years to build the salt lake temple. All on faith. But the way I take that scripture, you should just tell it to be, and it would be. I always thought leveling my corn field for flood irrigation, Wouldn’t it be nice if I could just raise my hand and command it to be level….. it doesn’t work. Lol

    2. On a serious note and not to trivialize or marginalize your meme Jim, or its significance. I have written a blog-post (Sept. 2013) about the Abrahamic religions and their inhumane ideologies and erroneous theologies that supports your post here. If I may Sir:

      It seems to me that one of humanity’s most infectious, destructive diseases are not only bacterial or viral, but pathological too, and it’s called religion. 😦

      1. Holy crapballs Prof. This is so spot on and so alarming, and it’s only gotten worse since you wrote it. Please take a minute my friends, and read the whole post by Taboo. Where allegory meets reality in a most disturbing, yet enlightening reality. Thanks Sir
