Fandango’s Provocative Question, answered by me!

Each week Fandango will pose what he thinks is a provocative question for other bloggers consideration. His question is below, why not give us your input, just click here link:

+++++++++
“Do you believe in fate and predestination? If so, what or who is the source? If you do believe in predestination, is there anything anyone can do to change their predestined fate?”

I believe God has a purpose for every one of us in this life and on an appointed day, we will die. Prayer is most important in the discovery of this purpose without prayer we are left to our own discretion, and more often we are doomed to failure. God, however in my belief, also hears the prayers of others when they pray for us, especially our parents. He mainly listens to parents, when a parent curses their children, He hears that too!

We make our own choices, it’s called free will, to choose right from wrong that is what determines our peace of soul. God who knows everything knows our options before we make them He did not create us to be puppets. God wants us to depend on Him, which is why He showed us in the Bible the perfect prayer known as the Lord’s Prayer aka The Our Father, that prayer when you offer it has everything we need.

There is only One God not many gods as stated in the First of the Ten Commandments. The First three Commandments are how we are expected to treat God; the other Seven Commandments are how we are supposed to treat each other. It’s not that difficult. To pray is to be humble and God loves humility, to say no to prayer is Pride. As long as we have breath, it is never too late to start, but when we draw that last one, our will is fixed forever. Why? Because if we choose not to want God in our life, why would we want Him in the next?

Sorry Fandango, for the preaching, but you asked for it!

Maybe the Intelligent are the Stupid

“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that, in the modern world, the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubts.”
Do you concur with Mr. Russell’s perspective? Why or why not?

One particular feature I love about blogging is the learning — example today the question ABOVE of #FPQ ASKED  came up about Bertrand Russell and his ^ quote.

Objectively Speaking Fact and Intentions

The FPQ question of today is prompting us to answer this…

“Do you believe that anyone can really experience anything objectively? Why or why not?”

Yes, I do believe we can all experience objectively. Stop first and analyze our motive for our actions and even our thoughts.
Understanding our purpose in life; which is the same for all of us, the objective purpose to serve God. Therefore when we act in such a way that the highest motive of our action serving HIM we experience that moment in time objectively.

Simply put ask yourself; what is our Intention of doing, thinking, pursuing!

EXAMPLE

Giving generously as much as we can, if we give freely because we love God; thereby we obey Him when He teaches “Love your neighbor as yourself.” However, if our motive of giving is the secondary motive of PRIDE, by that I mean, God does not enter our action we offer because we want the world to see how generous and beautiful a person or organization we are.
Although a good action that benefits, still it is not done with the most significant motive but the lesser.

Time to examine our conscience

#FPQ His question of the week and my answer or opinion whatever the reader wants to believe.

“Do you believe that size matters? Please explain your response.”

I have discovered when I do my grocery shopping in the produce section, the smaller the banana, tomato, onion, watermelon or whatsoever, the sweeter the taste. Maybe it’s just my imagination! Having posted that I think size does matter. Consider also: “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.” I am concerned since my son is 6’5″ … ouch!  Love him anyway!

Majority or minority also come to mind, reminding me of a quote I read many years ago, I don’t remember who’s words, but it was profound. “The majority are at times on the wrong side.” It was similar to this quote here from Mark Twain.

Majority

How to sit back and enjoy the FAKE NEWS

Question by FPQ: “How do you feel about people who always seem to exaggerate when relating a story? Do you equate embellishment with lying? As a blogger, when, if ever, is stretching the truth, other than when writing fiction, permissible?”

Also, the word of the day from FOWC is “NEWS.”

***************

Think about how dull the news stories would be without the adjectives used by the writers. Depending on the reader and their wants and needs one would grade the news as being exaggerated or “right on,” lying or just creative writing. The reader who loves the truth will read as they say, “between the lines.” In other words, what is meant by something that is not written! The creative genius of the writer by their embellishment can very easily falsify or misrepresent the truth, by their use of semantics of words.

Semantics is one weapon engineers of the New World Order have put into use, changing definitions of words and symbolism. The person looking for the truth should always ask when in a debate, especially debating with someone from the left, what definition they are using.

Consider also the omittance of “news” such as lately questions about the whereabouts of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The Globalists certainly have to worry about their One World Order agenda set-back when it comes to the real story concerning her ability to serve.

My advice when it comes to hearing the news of today is to “pray and not worry.” Trust God instead of fear the fake news of the Globalists. Not only will that advice be good for your health, but will offer you peace of soul and happiness.

Physician-assisted Suicide? Right or Wrong

The Challenge or suggestion today is in the form of a question, today the question is physician-assisted suicide, yes or no!

I love questions that cause me to think. I also realize that my way of thinking is not according to the direction of the world is moving today.
It is as though we are being pulled like a magnet to believe that this life is all we have therefore we should live it according to our convenience.

God really and truly speaks to all of us, and especially to us when we are near to our end. Suicide is evil because it removes our soul from the last chance we will have to hear His voice embedded within. If you don’t believe me, ask any physician or Hospice caretakers to tell you the stories they have witnessed sitting at the bedside of the dying.

Time to eternity is our journey like being born; leaving the womb of your mother entering this life. Now coming into our eternity, a new life of our choosing, a life of happiness or a life of absence of joy depending on how we ended.

Suicide is cheating yourself of that final vital conscious or coma state moment while still in the state of TIME. The time to review; the most critical moment allowed us.

The dying persons hearing the voice of God while pondering any regrets, feelings for contrition/repentance, and most importantly forgiveness from He who has created you.
