Whew. It’s been a while. I haven’t posted since the last encampment. Well, another is come and gone, and White Team came in 2nd!!! Though the Night Watch settled for a tie, falling from 4 -0 to 2 – 2 with a half hour to go. I also didn’t get Mr. Dietz, because he didn’t play. :( I guess you just can’t have your cake and eat it too. Anyway. I was recently thinking (uh oh! :o ) about humanity. In the fact that they are not perfect. We are human. We are not perfect. We can’t be perfect, because we all have original sin. But when you are baptized, the original sin goes away. I’ll use an example. Suppose you are making a cake. (yes, my mind is still on cake, from above.)
- You take the pan out, and find it dirty. Original Sin.
- You wash it clean. Baptism
- You add all of the main ingredients (I say main ingredients, because I don’t know how to make a cake. ;) ) The Human
- You add the sugar. Grace.
- You bake it. Life and Purgatory.
- You eat it. Heaven ;)
Making cake in a unwashed pan probably won’t work.
Forgetting the main ingredients, you have no cake.
No sugar, and the cake doesn’t taste good.
If it’s not baked, you probably get sick.
And without any of those components, you can’t eat it.
So here we are. I sin, and I say: “Forgive me Lord, I’m human.” Firstly, he already knows that. However, we have grace. So don’t say you are human. What happens when we are use the “human” excuse is, we are saying: “God, I’m a sinner. Just let me be a sinner.” Now you try saying that to God and he will say: “Hell is that way.” Sin is sin. And again I sound the wake up call. WAKE UP AMERICA! Without exception, everyone wants to be…unique…They want to be special. You know what I mean? They want to be the person that the reporters ask what is going on, because they know what is going on. They want to be on the inside. They want to be the right hand man. They want to be able to say: “I was one of the founders. I was one of the people here from the beginning, I helped make this organization (or whatever it is) what it is today!”
Here is an offer. A fair offer. Not dishonest. Join the Catholic Church, give up sinning, re-juvenate America. Fix her economy, live moral lives, be a role model, give other nations something to look up to. The world would be drastically changed if everyone did this. And that is what everyone wants. To change the world. You can still keep you iPhone. Just use it in moderation, and be happy you have it, and not want the iPhone deluxe. Keep you life simple, and you will get what you want. Because you won’t want anything. Your desires will be fulfilled, with one tiny little piece of bread. The Eucharist. God gave it to us. It perfects humanity, you might say. For Jesus says: “…unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you” Now we all know that he was talking literally, for the crowds starting shrinking away from him after he said that. And those of you who say he was a vampire/cannibalistic, shut up. I’m just gonna delete you comments rather than argue with a raving lunatic. Stop lying to yourself.
In the words of Napoleon. “It takes three things to win a war: Money, Money, and Money.”
In the words of Fr. Angelo. “It takes three things to get to Heaven: Prayer, Prayer, and Prayer.”
In the words of SignaVeritae. “It takes three things to save America. “Sacrifice, Sacrifice, and Sacrifice.
It takes three things to destroy a country: Sex, Money, and Power.
It takes three things to build a country: Faith, Hope, and Charity.
What do we have to lose?
