Writer’s Cramp, Vol. 2

1) “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle”  – Sun Tzu, Art of War

Scripture is replete with warnings about the adversary of God. It teaches us to not only be as innocent as doves, but to be shrewd as snakes. The longer we go down this timeline to destruction as a nation the more the delineation of good and evil becomes clearer. I hold no hope for some political wind of change in November. Some implore voting for Romney in order to avert disaster, as if this election, above any other, is the most critical in the nation’s history. It’s foolish to think this one election could substantively alter a course for the nation which has been set by  voting from every previous election. I’ve said it before and it bears repeating, there is no political solution for what is essentially a spiritual problem. Evil is on the rise, but as it does grace does much more. In natural terms, the die is cast. In spiritual terms, all is for Christ. All is for His Glory. All is toward His end.

2) This Chik-fil-a homogamy issue has gotten out of hand. We keep eating chickens and no wonder roosters look at each other funny.

3) Haven’t tried any further recipes with pickled eggs in a couple of months. Guess I got it out of my system for now, but I do intend to continue to work on perfecting a formula. Hopefully one involving lime and/or dill.

4) Thus far I’m in Proverbs 7 following the Historical track in YouVersion. It’s been enjoyable and have discovered many enlightening things in scripture, some of which I hope to share here in the coming months. For now I’m committed to a lot of reading so writing will have to take a holiday.

About elmoshangnaster

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.
