Smile vs Smirk—Ragtag

Ragtag Daily Prompt / RDP

To smile is kind, meek, mild and reserved,
while a smirk is self, vain filled with pride.
A smirk delivers egotism —
The smile presents an invitation of delight!

But the meek shall inherit the land, and shall delight in abundance of peace.
[Psalms 36:11]

Caution Slippery when wet—Ragtag

Ragtag Daily Prompt / RDP

 

Life is treacherous and slippery, know this fact. Also, remember that God is our friend, not our enemy.
If we are to have a chance at heaven, we must run the risk of hell. God’s eternal knowledge does not destroy our freedom.  He is God and we are His creatures, humans with an immortal soul; we can win heaven, the divine life with Him forever, or we can start our hell right here on earth with wrong choices.
Love of God is never forced, He created us all free, our love for Him is given freely, love is a gift. St. Thomas says, “slamming the door on His love, we open the door to His justice.”
Don’t SLIP up! Start with prayer, which is merely talking to God, essential to ask Him for forgiveness and help not to slip up again.

There is no saint without a past, and no sinner without a future.
Saint Augustine

My Haibun and Haiku or Senyru below:

 
Most Sashay through life without giving little thought to the end.
Time, also known as the world; more than breath, less than an illusion.
God’s design is all in all. We desire yet wonder what we yearn.

Purpose of life be
Happy in eternity
Know Love and Serve God

Quite Controversial

Questions???

1. Why is it an atheist prefers to blame God for all the hardships in the world if they don’t believe in God?
2. How? is it the atheist camp spends so much time on pointing at Christians, not others who have beliefs within higher domains?
3. Finally, how could they possibly believe that all designed from the Universe on top to the debts of the oceans and beyond has generated by chance?

My logic explains question number 1 this way: They lose that argument since it doesn’t make sense to anyone, atheist or theist. The theist does not believe that this world, this life is perfect; the next life, living with God is perfect. Which is why Christians live by God’s commandments, and when they fall they pick themselves up and try again. Many times it is when they fall and refuse to pick themselves up that are the cause of so many sorrows in this imperfect world.
Question number 2; each person is seeking happiness, that is our goal, happiness can only be achieved by living according to your conscience, that God has given us as a guide to happiness. The atheist wants their own will be done, not God’s will. Therefore they attack the Christian because deep within their heart they know the truth, God put it there.  Also, what other religious leader was ever foretold before their birth.
That third question I put before the reading audience is the one that boggles my mind, almost to the point I want to say: Why hire an atheist, with their understanding of how things generate they will sit around and wait for everything to come together by chance.
