CHAOS

Bomb by _Gavroche_, on Flickr

The informed have known for years that the original family is under attack. The informed have also known that before homosexuality became a huge item in America the enemy was often found in ones own home.  Cain murders Abel, Ham mocks his father, Noah, by looking at his nakedness, Jacob deceives his brother Esau and Absalom tries to take his father’s throne and many more stories like these are found in scripture.

In fact, chaos began with God. The Tower of Babel was one demonstration of unity that God interrupted. Why? The people were not unified in giving God glory, but rather to make a name for themselves, which contradicts God’s reason for our creation. This contradiction in-turn creates chaos.

If the family is to unify, it must be under the umbrella of giving God all the glory. By contradicting your purpose, you create chaos in your life. Consider what God has done: Who can straighten what he has made crooked (Ecclesiastes 7:13)?

There are churches picketing and putting up signs against homosexual marriage. Some are even bold enough to disrupt funerals and cause all sorts of drama, but is this wise? When the LORD takes pleasure in anyone’s way, he causes their enemies to make peace with them (Proverbs 16:7).

What should the church do? Unify under the umbrella of giving God ALL the glory. Not actors or actresses. Not Prada or Brahmin. Not houses or hummers. God will straighten the chaos created by our contradiction. Your mission should you choose to accept it, is to keep your eyes and your affection on things above where Christ sits upon the throne. The measure of chaos in your home will diminish and when the world sees your good works they will glorify God.

God interrupted the people at the Tower of Babel to bring confusion because of their agenda. I can only imagine what he would bring to the people who are unified in giving him glory. God always brings something, but you choose what it will be. Peace or chaos?

THE BIBLE on the History Channel

the Bible
As a believer in Jesus Christ and a reader of the scriptures, you become overjoyed when the Bible is presented on national television. You also become skeptical, as most versions of the Bible on television are grossly sanitized, so that they do not offend. Amazingly, there is no problem with Hangover Part II playing on television with its clear degradation of women, but I digress.

Having watched an episode of “The Bible” I liked the quality of the show. The theatrics and the high quality visualizations and CGI I found to be on point. I felt the story as I was watching it. Of course, they must add to the Biblical account to make it flow. I would watch the series with my children and then read the Biblical account. Their story has been sanitized. Homosexuality of Sodom and Gomorrah has been removed. It also has some inaccurate points as it showed Pharaoh alive after the flood when the Biblical account shows him dead.

There is also controversy concerning the races of the characters.  You find the black man’s kryptonite the white women (Samson and Delilah) and Noah’s Scottish accent. I think this fits well with our changing demographic and to create discussion that previously did not exist outside of Biblical scholars.

Here is another controversy. Wait for it.

Read the Biblical Account in KJV.
