I recently received a “tell yourself” video featuring things – a selection of Bible verses- people should tell themselves. I do not want to tell myself anything that I shouldn’t, just because it is in the Bible, and Deuteronomy 28 is not a blanket of blessings anyone who was not there can wrap himself in. In that video I could not get past “Tell yourself Deuteronomy 28 … I am the head and not the tail”. It is this kind of mixing truth and lies that has brought the world of information sharing to a destructive new low both in the political and religious world
Today, yesterday and careful compliance
How can I tell myself what the Bible says about me without a full hug, unless the self-talk is just a thing to create a good feeling or adjust our comfort level with reality? The only way to be head and tail is to get in touch with what Moses was saying as Israel neared Canaan.
All the ignorance of the last 1000 years is guiding the United States in 2020 amid a pandemic. If American lives were not seriously in jeopardy we would be laughing. I wonder who is lining up for bleach treatment. Where are those fine patriots when you need them? Make sure you have health care and life insurance. Does any follower of Jesus of Nazareth not recognize the demonic siege? My God! Why has wisdom departed so precipitously?
