Writer’s Cramp, vol 1

1) My thinking on the concept of what God knows is changing. It’s been my experience in churches that God is considered omniscient, that is He knows everything infinitely, past present and future. The more reading I do in the Old Testament the more I come to understand God as One Who knows what He chooses, when He chooses, but doesn’t necessarily know everything at all times. It seems Open Theology is quite the rage among some Christians today. Perhaps I need to explore this more…

2) Bureaucratic paperwork, especially of government origin, isn’t intended to document facts, but to obscure reality. The truth suffers as those behind the mountain of paperwork gain the freedom to act as they intend. The problem comes down to lawyers. They turn the simple into the complex, making the obvious as misunderstood as possible. The paperwork is just there to make what they do look legitimate.

3) I suspect I’ve discovered an unrefined though universal truth. To state it raw, “Technology is commonly thought to make our lives easier, but develops at a rate sufficient to keep people from being productive.” Essentially, technology keeps us from doing our jobs.

The name's a dodge simply because 1) on the internet I can be whomever I choose, and 2) I'm just paranoid enough to keep scoundrels and government out of my business and don't care to sort 'em out from the decent folk. My blog, my opinions. Don't like 'em? Sure, kindly tell me about your far-fetched, idiotic beliefs...kindly. In the end we'll neither of us change the others mind, but I will take the time to read your arguments if they're thought out in a rational fashion and not full of hyperbole. I'm a Christian human being. It's not a flavor or color preference, it's who and what I am. Don't like it? The above considerations apply. I'm not about to waste anyone's time or mine shoving Christianity down their gullet if they demonstrate even the least resistance. When someone's ready to hear I'm only too glad to share. The Gravatar? It's Jenny Lake in the Tetons near Jackson, WY. If God had a house that's where it would be.
