hey ******,…..here’s somethin I wrote a while back that I don’t ever think that I had put on my blog page????……i tried to write it so it was “clearly” understood???? (I’m startin to doubt my “clearly” anything as of late though! lol, but lol just a little (more like a mumble,..or a gas pain??? lol)….anyway,…if you feel that it’s totally out of whack for your blog,….just delete it, k????,….I’m a pretty understanding guy, all in all??? or, for the most part??? (yeah,…that one’s better)…anyway,…hope to hear from ya soon,……..toksoon……..

p.s. when I comment on anyone’s post,….it always scrunches everything together…….as it does with everyone’s (????maybe????)…I love what are referred to as, “OLD SAYINGS.” words of wisdom shared in witty ways. things to make us think and simplify what we have a tendancy to see as bigger of a problem than it really is. or, “MAKING A MOUNTAIN, OUT OF A MOLEHILL.”,…see, there’s another old saying right there,………

Where do these sayings come from??? Why are they still around??? So many other questions concerning these shared thoughts???

Many of these sayings have been modified, and or, FINE TUNED. some of them are even used in the psychological field. An example of one of which is this one.

………..”INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER,………. ………..AND THEN EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT”……….

have you ever heard that one????,……….in the psychologic field it has to do with destructive and damaging pattern behaviors. like the story about the guy who goes to the doctor and says, “DOCTOR, IT HURTS WHEN I DO THIS.”….to which the doctor replies, “THEN DON’T DO THAT!!!”……….come on man! you know that’s funny!!! have you ever done something the same as you did before that came up and bit you in the ass?????

maybe you did the same thing, but this time it had to do with a different person in the scenario???,………..i know that i have!!!! because i can,…..do,…..and,…..HAVE DONE,…..SOME SERIOUSLY STUPID S*** IN MY LIFE!!!!! prompting me to “then” ask the question, “HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO DAMN STUPID”….this is an honest, though sad, statement of fact. I am not happy about this at all!…I only laugh about it because cryin does no good,…

it’s too easy to “TRY TO BLAME THE “NEW” PERSON, FOR THE BAD CONSEQUENCES FROM THE REPEATING OF YOUR “OLD” ACTION. when we blame others for our neglect of being sensible (insane behaviors) then we don’t benefit at all…a victim of our own “SELF CHOSEN” circumstances……perhaps we really do “reap what we sow????????…….(yes,…we do!)…

There is a band that I love who wrote a song which lyrics say, “MY PAIN IS SELF CHOSEN!”,…when we get to be that honest with ourselves,….this is when we see that we need to grow to change and break free of self applied chains…”but, how can we do that?????”

This question is asked, usually silently, by many, many people. many times, people tell stories about how stupid the things that they do/have done are in an effort to provoke (find???) false sympathy from others near them,…and sometimes from others far away from them. or just from anyone at all…THE PITY PARTY CROWD!…THOSE WHO WANT TO BE CONSTANTLY “CODDLED AND BABIED”,…THOSE WHO TRY TO CONVINCE MW THAT “IMMATURITY” IS A “CUTE CHARACTER TRAIT!”…?????…SORRY,…THAT DOESN’T WORK ON ME!!!!!!!!……LOL,……CUZ I’M “CAPTN LOVE!!!!!!”…………

i don’t make a very good false friend. i’m the kind of guy that tells people (especially my closest of friends!!!) to pull their heads out of their a******!!!!!,…………because that’s what i hope that my friends tell me when i’m being a complete and total moron!!!!!,……..and trust me, THEY DO!!!,…..

I LOVE MY FRIENDS!!!!!,………AND MY FRIENDS LOVE ME!!!!!,……….(more bout this later) friends, to me, are ones who encourage you to do the best that you can and love you while you are trying. the ones who will pull you from a burning building. (even if YOU ARE THE ONE WHO STARTED THE FIRE!!!!!!) this is one form of unconditional love. no matter what anyone else may say…….BUT,…READ THIS NEXT PART VERY, VERY CLOSELY TOO!!!!!!!…………IF!!!!!,….AND I MEAN “IF!!!!!!!”……..

if we keep setting the next building, and the next building, and the next building, etc, etc,….on fire,……..after a while, our friends may get tired of us risking THEIR LIVES to save US from our own stupidity,…and destructive (to all near us!!!) choices. one day may come when they aren’t there to pull us from the fire………REMEMBER THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF??????………….

i ask this, “HONESTLY, WHO’S “FAULT” WOULD IT BE WHEN, AS WE “STILL HOLD” THE GAS CAN AND “LIGHTER”, OUR BODY IS ENGULFED IN FLAMES AS WE SCREAM IN AGONY AS WE DIE?????”,……..i’m not the smartest guy in the world, but i’m pretty sure that would be our own damn fault.

SO,…..BACK TO THIS OLD SAYING,….

                                       ………..”INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING OVER,……….                                             ………..AND THEN EXPECTING A DIFFERENT RESULT”……….

                                       IT WAS WRITTEN THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO THIS WAY,…….

                                  ….JUST LIKE A DOG GOES BACK AND EATS IT’S OWN VOMIT,…….                               ONLY A FOOL CONTINUES TO DO THINGS………..                                                                            THAT ARE PROVEN FOOLISHNESS………….

that comes from a not so popular book called the bible. or, the “holy bible”….and i believe these words to be truth……….whether anyone else does or not. in it, the answer to how can and do we change to stop this destructive behavior is found. it is the single greatest book that i have ever read. i found have truth in a big way as i searched through each and every sentence,………….

even if i don’t go to church,…………..which i don’t, by the way. i used to, but i prefer to live my life as i do now. too many times, humans and their rules (organized religion) has TRIED TO STEAL FROM ME MY FREEDOM,…………only what i give can be taken from me. I WILL NOT GIVE MY FREEDOM, PEACE, AND JOY TO ANYONE………..i believe what i believe, wherever i am, 24/7…………….right here, right now. my faith does not exist “only” when i am inside of a “building”, that is “built with man’s hands,……the book of HAGGAI, (WHICH I THINK IS ONE OF THE LAST CHAPTERS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT????,….actually,…i’ll google,…hang on….HERE YOU GO!……..it’s a beautiful statement,….with much encouraging truth when we see it “optimistically???” (i don’t know if the word “optimistically” even existed when the bible was written??? lol….but,…it explains in a “modern term” what the bible is to be about…………..anyway,…..check this out………THE BOOK OF HAGGAI,…WORTH READING,….VERY SHORT BOOK TOO!!!! WEEEEHEEEE!!!!!! LOL……..

2 THIS IS WHAT THE LORD ALMIGHTY says: “These people say, ‘The time has not yet come to rebuild the LORD’s house.’”

3 Then the word of the LORD came through the prophet Haggai: 4 “Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?”

5 Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. 6 You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”

SINCE I BEGAN GOING TO CHURCH YEARS AGO,….MANY, AND I MEAN “MANY!!!!!” OF THE PREACHERS AT THE “BUILDINGS I WENT TO,….HAVE “CONSTANTLY SAID THAT ONE DAY SOON!!!!!?????,…..THE “LORD IS GONNA FILL THESE BUILDINGS UP TO OVERFLOWING!!!!!!!!…..MOST OF THESE BUILDINGS WERE ABOUT ONE QUARTER FULL (if that) AT THE TIME…….IF I WAS TO GO BACK TO THE MAJORITY OF ANY OF THOSE (gathering places, what haggai calls “paneled/ceiled” houses) CHURCH/BUILDINGS NOW,…..THEY WOULD “STILL” BE,…TWENTY YEARS LATER,…ONE QUARTER FULL (or empty, when viewed “pessimistically” lol,….i had it toss that in….needed a little realistic balance to what i was sayin!!!! lol)

if you have a “church” that you go to where you are finding love and encouragement, then that is great!!!! more power to ya!!!!!,……that is right and good as long as we realize that the place of gathering is not our “salvation” nor is it an integral part of our “salvation”,…..when we see this clearly,….then our desire to “assemble ourselves”,…and go to these “gathering places” will then be strengthened,……..because we know “what and who” we believe in!!!!!!,….and,….that is a VERY IMPORTANT THING!!!!…..i think about why i am writing this now,….and i want to make sure that even though,…upon first glance,…what i am attempting to say here and now can be mistaken,…..i do not wish that at all!!!!!,…….i hope it to be an encouragement for all who may read it,….BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY (my opinion!) IS FOR EVERY AND ALL PREACHERS IN THE WORLD!!!!…..i say this because,…as preachers,..and many times especially when a concern of money is involved,…..money not only to pay the electric bills and the water bills,…(the PURE AND BARE NECESSITIES!!!!!)…….but also the need (OR IS IT “THE WANT” of money for “building improvements” such as new carpet, paint, “paneling”,…”ceiling tiles”,…fancy lighting,….computers,…..paintings, fake plants, new podium,….this that or the other,….etc,..etc,…………..to KEEP OUR CONGREGATION “COMFORTABLE” (thus “insuring” that they will want to come back…..????….strange incentive program huh?????)….not exactly “scriptural, is it?????………

but,….very human……….nonetheless (these things should probably be paid attention to????………as they can cause any preacher to “compromise” what he “believes in” so quickly that it can make one’s head spin,…not quite like the little girl in the exorcist movie,…..but i think you get the picture,……………..when that happens….as jesus says about building our “houses” on the sand,….and also,….as haggai states about………well??? check this out and you’ll see it simply,……..MORE FROM HAGGAI……….

7 THIS IS WHAT THE LORD ALMIGHTY SAYS: “Give careful thought to your ways. 8 Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the LORD. 9 “You expected much, but see, it turned out to be little. What you brought home, I “BLEW AWAY”…(!!!!!!!!!! exclamation points are my mood lightening interjection, btw,..lol) Why?” declares the LORD Almighty. “Because of MY house, which REMAINS A RUIN, while each of you is “busy” with your ”own” house. 10 Therefore, because of you the heavens have withheld their dew and the earth its crops. 11 I called for a drought on the fields and the mountains, on the grain, the new wine, the olive oil and everything else the ground produces, on people and livestock, and on all the labor of your hands.”…great book in it’s simple truth,…..

IT SERVES AS A GREAT “BAROMETER”,..OR AS A “GAUGE” FOR ANY AND ALL AS PASTORS, OR PREACHERS, OR TEACHERS!!!!!….if we EVER LET OURSELVES,…as pastors preachers and or teachers think that we are above being deceived!!!!!!..????….oh boy!!!! get ready FOR THE HOUSE TO COME CRASHING DOWN!!!!!,…..IF WE THINK THAT WE WILL INCREASE “CHURCH ATTENDANCE” THROUGH THE “AMENITIES” AND THE “COMFORTS” OF WHAT OUR GATHERING PLACE HAS TO “OFFER” (????) INSTEAD OF “AD”MINISTERING” THE BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL TRUTH OF GOD’S WORD???……………….

then the “spiritual bulldozer” will be arriving soon!!!!!!….don’t get me wrong,…the “building” will still stand (more than likely,…lol) but the “super glue of God’s truth…..will not be there as the ever important spiritual nails needed to “keep the “TRUE HOUSE” together,………that is what (also) will be what TRULY FILLS THESE BUILDINGS FULL TO OVERFLOWING……jesus said that back in the day,….that the fields were EVEN THEN WHITE FOR HARVEST (OR RIPE FOR THE PICKIN, which is a little term where i come from,…lol)………..

i am not AGAINST (gathering together) GOING TO “CHURCH” AT ALL!!!!!,…..when we let ourselves “see”,..and i mean “really see!!!!” that we as the believers are the “true church”,….and that the “building that we refer to as “the church”,….is actually, in biblical reality,….a “place of gathering, and or, physically assembling. …

so don’t take what i am saying wrong, please!!!!!,…….. more on this some other time,………..i’ll continue later,…………….have a good one,………toklater JOHN E DOE
