With the recent shooting at the opening of the new Batman movie, and with the fallout of the Penn State scandal, something is really amiss; the world is progressing into moral chaos. What gets me is that innocent and unarmed people are murdered and people say that it is God’s will.
Even more disheartening is the polarization of viewpoints between Republicans and Democrats. Each side is claiming that if the American’s held their beliefs, then these events would have not transpired.
I am looking to make some sense of this chaos and maybe it is supposed to not make sense. I heard today “No Woman No Cry” and was reassured that everything is going to be alright. Perhaps Bob Marley is on to something that with the resounding chaos, things will get better.
I was thinking of God and his views on everything…could God communicate better with humans?
Is a written word the best way to prove one exists?
How about a supernatural personal bible that whenever you open it, God rearranges the words to speak directly to you?
Or what about a personal visit by Jesus daily?
It appears that we are left with a written word, and it does not look promising for humans. Honestly, there is discontinuity between God’s written word and the personal application of it. I read the Word daily and I still have millions of questions and have a tough time applying it. I would conjecture that the Spirit is the gap between the written Word and personal application. In 1 Samuel 3:1, “In those days the word of the LORD was rare; there were not many visions.”
Perhaps God’s infinite wisdom to have a written word is enough. Maybe it takes faith in Him against all circumstances and like Marley sings – everything is going to be alright.
Just my personal expression…
