|Did you know?|
Journals have always held my thoughts and observations. My church journal was one in which I outlined the sermon for that day. This is how my brain works. Writing holds words in place.
I was sorting through my pile of journals and came across one from twenty years ago, when life seemed much simpler, in line with my-then organized life. The following was from those golden times.
Did you know that the earth is only 50,000 years old? Some religious people settled down to log lifespans in 24 hour segments and came out with 50,000 years. Also, when God created the sun and moon, He put it down in 24 hours time bits.
Dinosaurs? They were the remains of an earlier version of the world, before God re-created it. Plus, dinosaurs were really part of satan's plan to mess with the whole creation thing.
Did you know that extraterrestrials are really demons? All those lights and such are ways to deceive us. Wow.
Did you know that hypnotism opens one's soul to be taken over by demons' takeover?
Did you know ghosts are really just demons? They are not real. Just evil.
Did you know that horoscopes are a way to divert the faithful. Psychics are also evil and deceptive, and they have demons as part of their family line.
These thoughts are from sermons presented by a man whom I truly respect, an intelligent man. But, even way back then, as I wrote all above, I also wrote: "Really? I mean, really?"
To believe sincerely requires one to understand. Facts and faith go together.
God does not wear a wrist watch. He does not need to log time the way we do. He has control over time.
