God’s Apples

We make the mistake of trying so hard to be one thing, but we are many things and we make the mistake of allowing others to limit us when our ways are limitless.

We do the same thing with God.

We confine him to only being good and doing good things and we restrict or subscribe all that is evil to Satan.

But who is Satan, except another manifestation of God.

Because if God creates and controls all things, then surely evil is his creation as well.

To allocate the power of evil to one outside of God, strips God of the very title, power and deity we seek to bestow upon him.

God is Satan AND Christ, just as we are evil and good.

We cannot worship one without the other and we cannot BE one without the other!

And the evidence is neatly contained in the book whereby we swear our oaths and pledge our allegiance (well in church at best and in a courtroom at worse)

“So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them” Gen 1:27 (KJV)

And if my biblical reference has offended the more sexually equalitarian minded, here is the New Living Translation:

“So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God, he created them male and female he created them” Gen. 1:27 (NLT)

As a friend of mine likes to say:  You don’t get apples from orange trees!

If God is the apple tree, then surely we are his apples. And I am just as sure there is a worm inside all of us.

Are You Free?

Freedom comes when we let go of who we think we are and who others want us to be.

Happiness comes when our emancipation is fettered to the reality of who we really are.

Pull back the layers and uncover my soul,

Sink to the bottom and discover my gold.

Your eyes will water and your heart may burn,

As you experience the beauty and pain of my world.

What is love to you?

What does it look like?

How does it feel?

When you get it, will you bend it or contort it to what you want it to be

OR, will you bend and contort to what it wants you to be?

Will you accept it with humility and a bit of skepticism

OR, will your skeptical humility reject it with arrogance?
