“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?
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!
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.
#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.
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.
