Assorted Thoughts

I had a lil free time at work & wrote some random thoughts that came to mind. Do feelings override thought alot?? What causes us to be irrational or nonrational?? What causes us to be superstitious???

Fear. It comes from awareness of being hurt,punished or made to feel bad in some way. A sense of these things going to happen. What influences our minds to interpret in such a way that fear is the result?? In the OT, we see God wiped out sodom and gomorrah, lots wife was turned into a pillar of salt. Israelites were told to kill entire groups of other ethnic groups. In the NT we see ananias and sapphira killed immediately, pronouncement of judgment to come.Isn't all this enough to make anyone wonder what awaits them upon death??? Will they be judged for the life they lived??? This is where the ultimacy of Jesus work comes into play. Did Jesus atone for ALL sins of everyone for all time??? Did He atone just for those who come to Him in faith???

Adam was said by Paul to have brought sin into the world and death as a result. Because of Adam all die. Jesus as a second Adam is said to bring life and forgiveness of sins to all men. None of us chose to be impugned with sin yet we inherit a sin capacity. Doesn't it make sense Jesus then gives us a life capacity set free from sin???

One other thing. God did not answer all Jesus prayers. He did not let Jesus bypass the cross. He did not make all His followers become one as He and the Father are One. He has not made His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Has He??? Things to ponder.

Yet. We're still on the 6th day.
