Back to my normal "I got nuthin’" mental and emotional state. Blame it on being tired or the grey day (Thanking God for the rain and the shade!!). Or blame it on having to order the execution of a cottonmouth today. That kind of drained me. I realize we can’t let poisonous snakes roam the RV park, but I hate seeing things get killed. I probably should’ve walked away when the guys were dealing with it, but I don’t think it would’ve mattered. It was the right deceision, but nonetheless, it was a beautiful creation from God’s hand and I hope it doesn’t happen again (and I’m thankful I saw it and didn’t hit it with a mower or step on it – Thanks God for once again guarding me with such amazing regularity and precision).

Speaking of injury, I cut my right index finger yesterday, either on a rusty grate or a rusty saw trying to get at a broken chain that is supposed to hold the two grates together. It bled alot for such a small, small injury. I mean alot! Thankfully, I had a tetnus shot in 2008.

Category: Thankful God sees – Had a brief discussion with my boss about the condition of grass on the property. We are experienceing the same problems we had two years ago with chinch bugs. But my boss won’t treat nor pretreat because the insecticide that works is expensive. Really expensive. So, grass is going to die. Each time an area goes brown, he is going to be convinced it is a water problem, I’ll have to work the irrigation system, and so on, and so on. My boss’ bosses have set him up to fail because they won’t provide for us, while at the same time, they buy stuff for themselves and hire another manager instead of a worker. God sees. I hope God will give my boss the insight to know that and be encouraged that these problems are caused by his bosses and not himself.

Without Christ

So I saw an editorial today by a local religious leader and it got me thinking. It was about creation and evolution and I will read it in detail tomorrow so I can create a better response. But it got me thinking: If this issue is not that big a deal (which seems to be his point), why in the world would I want to be involved in Christianity if Christ is not who he said he was and the Hebrew Scriptures were not the truth as Jesus believed and taught?

With all due respect to Christians with greater character than I and, with acknowledgement that my representation of Jesus leaves alot to be desired, why would I be a religious person, especially in a religion where you can’t trust Jesus’ words and you can’t trust the Bible to be true? If evolution is even slightly true, Jesus CAN’T be God in the flesh and he is merely an evolved ape (or amoeba to go back even further). To keep the thought going, the doctrine of Christ would be that he is 100% God and 100% evolved ape. If evolution is even slightly true, Biblical Christianity CANNOT be true. Jesus would have believed in creation and taught creation.

So, was Jesus simply ignorant (remember, if he evolved, he could not have been creator as Paul wrote), or was he lying (he somehow knew life was not created, but covered it up by teaching the Hebrew Scriptures as a true and trustworthy account). Are scientists and philosophers wiser than Jesus or simply better informed or is their character more trustworthy than Jesus?

Without Christ, I would probably have Christian friends but I really would have no use for church. I would probably think of Christianity as having some good morals but I would choose (like I do now anyway in spite of my best wishes) what I wanted to abide by. I think there are too many who think the debate over evolution is just for brainiacs, but I say creation is at the heart of what we believe. If it is not true, I can’t say what else is true.
