Cain vs. Abel

The electrician said he had the best job in the world. He said that for thousands of years there were no light bulbs, radio, TV, washing machines and hundreds of other items that make are lives better. He also said that God knew about electricity, but it took man thousands of years putting together the pieces to the puzzle to finally unlock the secrets. Why did God not tell man all about it and save all the time it took to solve the mystery of electricity? Because life was to be a struggle for man so he would come to appreciate all that God gave Adam and Eve, that they rejected. They had the perfect utopia yet they wanted more, they wanted to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge to be God like.

Banished to our world, they were now subject to evil and the harshness of human life. God said “Your eye will be opened” meaning they would see and experience the evil nature of mankind. The story of Cain and Abel is a story of man’s human nature. Abel loves God. He works hard. He cares for his wife and children. He prospers. Cain is lazy. He lies, cheats, and steals. He does not love God. He grows to envy his brother’s success, and one day in a fit of jealousy and rage, he murders his brother. This story tells us the two sides of man’s human nature. We live in a world full of those who are like Cain and Abel. The question is which one are you?

It is easy to be a Cain. It is hard work to be an Abel. Life on earth will forever be a struggle. Those who struggle to be good, to be an Abel, are mocked and ridiculed by those who are a Cain.

So, which one are you?

Ironside,

Walkie is very much a Cain.

Bryant commented on Sunday, Apr 07, 2013 at 20:15 PM

Walkie, I envy your Cainism.

gawalkman commented on Monday, Apr 08, 2013 at 10:53 AM

Try this one on for size...

If Abel had been a little more humble, would Cain have been jealous?

Remember, it is easier for a civilized man to act like a barbarian than it is for a barbarian to act like a civilized man.

Not that I have time for it, Ironsides, but you might want to note that the first four sentences of your little treatise there are the opening shots in a fantastically cogent argument for atheism. Wrap yer noggin' around *that* little nugget.

Scott, I can find a fantastically cogent argument for atheism by looking at a paper bag. I can also find a fantastically cogent argument for creationism in the fact that I am looking at a paper bag. So whats your point??? 22

Scott Garner commented on Sunday, Apr 14, 2013 at 22:32 PM

I would be beyond interested in your argument for paper bag creationism. Please produce at least 3,000 words, MLA style and cite your work. Bonus points for doing it without ever referring to the Bible.

22 commented on Monday, Apr 15, 2013 at 15:15 PM

I could write 6000 words mf style about my fantastically cogent argument for creationism in the fact that I am looking at a paper bag. But it still would not bring me any closer to your point.

The paper bag is contingent upon a lot of things. The fact that the bag is contingent tells the logical mind that something came before the bag for it to exist. In no way shape of form can there have ever been nothing. It is also logical to think that nothing plus nothing equals nothing or empty space. Therefore there can be no empty space or a state of nothing. The Koran tells us Allah has created seven heavens in perfect harmony. I am telling you and I do hold myself equal with Allah and you can qote me on this. Something may not have created seven heavens but something created the paper bag.

Scott Garner commented on Monday, Apr 15, 2013 at 22:04 PM

That last paragraph was like watching a bull hump a tractor. Thank the seven heavens it *wasn't* 3,000 words.

22 commented on Tuesday, Apr 16, 2013 at 09:09 AM

The bull was proving to the "new bull" he was not a hefer.

One day there was empty space. Now thats a joke.

There is nothing to prove atheism.
It is just a belief a theory,
like most religions "atheism".

I find most atheist just as much the zealot.

Scott Garner commented on Friday, Apr 19, 2013 at 17:43 PM

I agree that atheism and religion are both rooted in faith, which is to say the belief in a thing which one cannot prove.

I like faith. I think it makes humans unique among animals, as much so as self-awareness. It also makes us fallible. When a person holds strong faith but cannot respect the faith of another, it is a failing of both intellect and imagination. So I'll agree with you there, the zealotry of some atheists is no better than a proselytizing holy roller condemning strangers to hellfire and damnation on a street corner.

To ignore the logical possibilities of (and problems with) atheism (or religion) is a tactic for weak minds.

Obama wants to control the internet. The Internet is both good and bad for America. The good news is the tremendous instant information available to all of us. But, as my history teacher told us, “know your sources and what they are up to.” My high school days, 1963-1967, were ...

GSU vs Navy

I went to the Navy game this Saturday. GSU looked totally flat. Navy on the other hand came to play. Their Quarterback Reynolds single handedly dismantled GSU. He ran for 277 yards and six touchdowns. That is a season for a lot of running backs. What I saw on display ...
