Share this review. Ruthless Magic Conspiracy of Magic 1. I asked him to be ruthless. That I wanted as much of him as I was capable of receiving. That he knows my limits and abilities better than I do, so to do as he saw fit — even if I begged him to make it stop. You see, Jesus said that he came that we might have life and have it abundantly. We tend to think this means we will enjoy the good things of life abundantly.
Warning: God Can Be Ruthless « The Upside Down World
How hard life is and how much I suffer on the way is simply a measure of how good the life God has waiting for me is and how much joy I will have in him. The deeper that sorrow carves into your being the more joy you can contain. This process of redemption is something God is determined to bring ALL of us through. A wailing and gnashing of teeth, as scriptures say. Those of us who walk through the process of redemption willingly — who have said idiotic prayers and picked up our cross of our own free will — will be spared that bitter regret.
We will surely see the Lord in the land of the living and when the times comes, walk right into the house of the Lord to join in the feast which is being prepared for us. The way of the cross is hard and full of suffering. And yet, it is for good reason that the bible tells us over and over to endure to the end. When we love someone, we stay with them through sickness and death — even though this means we will suffer alongside them. If we are not willing to suffer, we are also not willing to love. And when we reach the point that there is nothing in us which is not love, we will be grateful that God is so ruthless.
Like Like. I hear you on the idiotic prayer thing. I want you to use me for your glory…..
Considerations designing a world, how-to : We have various human ways of designing model universes where we can live, in imagination. Games are one example. Practically all our fiction is about suffering, about challenges at least — and more than half the time? What kind of fiction do you like? In fantasy, where the possibilities are wide open — what kind of worlds do people imagine?
Ecologies: Energy flows from some basic source to life forms that just soak it up — into forms that break these down, etc. Some people like their games ruthless… but we mostly prefer that our ping-pong matches not be to the death! I suspect that the level of violence in contemporary human imaginings — has to do with a high level of fear among us. People want stories that let them imagine emerging triumphant or at least safe from threats.
Even if the hero dies, the reader… gets to finish the book. Or walks out of the movie; you see what I mean…. What is the advantage to us; what is the appeal? And why do babies like that game? Something to do with the fact that Mommie does reappear from behind the chair? With learning that Mommie will continue to reappear?
Where did our ability to experience pain and suffering come from if we were created to live in a world without it? Can we know of and experience things which are beyond God? Can there be a beyond God?
As you say a story or game with no challenge, no struggle, etc is awfully boring. Reblogged this on carloscarrillo and commented: this is soo nasty. I like those comparisons because they speak to motive and method. Each is designed to help and not hurt.

Each are a solution and not the problem. Even so, some religious folks blame God for the problems and have a hard time seeing Him differently. But if so, you would also be about to learn something worth the trouble. Ha ha! You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
