11/21/2022: The Status Of Sin’s Cycle

While I’m in this contraption that describes “experience” (albeit vanity) , you might be someone in the contraption that describes “status”. That might look like moving toward self-sustainability to offer all the same at your discretion, having the power to be god—

Pause: I’m struggling here because I want to use an upper case “G” for god but don’t want to associate the idea with the actual name, God, and confuse the word-play as I allude to us as “God” (by this cycle) when we’re not God.

You and I as “Experience” and “Status” have established the potential for an eternal agenda by this relationship, we are… god.

Status

Oh the perfection of my logic and quality of this feeling upon my mountain, and who can walk these steps to sit on the throne above, steps I’ve levitated to it’s elevation by the power of my status, who can compare to me? Not one has my knowledge nor power to create. I will breathe energy for intellectual genius and establish—pride of life—that you can rule for the purpose of my work, and glory it’s of. I give time it’s meaning, and cause good and evil to become a fruit desired. Be like me! What do you desire? I have your potential, worship yourself!

Reader, what does “status” mean for you? How does that status effect your belief structure? What are your steps to achievement and authority it’s of?

11/17/2022: Sin’s Cycle To Love All That Is In The World

1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

In the previous post (above) I gave part of my bible’s commentary for the term “world”, and you also might’ve noticed that the post ended abruptly—sorry for that. The idea is novelty as I attempt a daily post.

Now to proceed in the consequence of our love for this world and all things in it…

The World

As someone who was once disobedient (Rom. 11:30), far off (Eph. 2:13), darkness (Eph. 5:8), alienated and an enemy (Col. 1:21) to God, I can attest with the rest of sinful humanity the effect of a “dead nature”, meaning the consequence of sin to love this world and the things in it. Especially now, in this “Postmodern era” of the digital age and global network, is my love of this world so obvious—even seeming ironic.

It seems unfair that my spiritual condition and biological makeup will only generate what is in the world—that lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life. It is impossible for me to do and say anything that is not of this world and the love of it.

So how can, not loving the world, even be an option?

Do you love the world?
