Mind Set

You have probably heard the expression: "Oil and water do not mix."

For all practical purposes, that is true. They do NOT mix, never have, and never will.

With all the suspicious talk of "inclusive diversity" and "equality" nowadays, one wonders if such has a Biblical basis.

On the positive side, all humans of whatever gender and skin color are indeed human, and have eternal souls. All are birthed from a vagina, all breathe air, are affected by gravity, need food and water and sunlight, and all die.

But not all men (nor women) are created equal in terms of birth or congenital defects, eye and skin color, body build, intelligence and talent potential, and other genetic differentiations.

Some are of the genetically-non-alterable superior gender, and others of the genetically-non-alterable inferior gender (despite claims of transsexualism and transgenderism, with or without groin-area surgical alterations or transvestite modifications):

Leviticus 27:1 The LORD [YHWH - The Trinity of Father, Son, Spirit] said to Moses:
2 Say to the people of Israel: "When a man makes a special vow of persons to the LORD at your Valuation,
3 then your valuation of a male from twenty years old up to sixty years old shall be fifty shekels of silver, according to the shekel of the sanctuary.
4 If the person is a female, your valuation shall be thirty shekels.
5 If the person is from five years old up to twenty years old, your valuation shall be for a male twenty shekels, and for a female ten shekels.
6 If the person is from a month old up to five years old, your valuation shall be for a male five shekels of silver, and for a female your valuation shall be three shekels of silver.
7 And if the person is sixty years old and upward, then your valuation for a male shall be fifteen shekels, and for a female ten shekels."

Numbers 5:31 The man shall be free from iniquity, but the woman shall bear her iniquity.

Numbers 30: 9 Any vow of a widow or of a divorced woman, anything by which she has bound herself, shall stand against her.
10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound herself by a pledge with an oath,
11 and her husband heard of it, and said nothing to her, and did not oppose her; then all her vows shall stand, and every pledge by which she bound herself shall stand.
12 But if her husband makes them null and void on the day that he hears them, then whatever proceeds out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning her pledge of herself, shall not stand: her husband has made them void, and the LORD will forgive her.
13 Any vow and any binding oath to afflict herself, her husband may establish, or her husband may make void.

Ecclesiastes 7:25 I turned my mind to know and to search out and to seek wisdom and the sum of things, and to know the wickedness of folly and absurdity which is craziness.
26 And I found more bitter than death the woman whose heart is snares and nets, and whose hands are fetters; he who pleases God escapes her, but the sinner is taken by her.
27 "Hey, this is what I found," says the Preacher, "adding one thing to another to find the sum,
28 which my mind has repeatedly sought but I have not found. One man among a thousand I found, but a woman among all these I have not found.
29 Hey, this alone I found, that God made humanity upright, but they have sought out many devices."

Isaiah 3:12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, your leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths.

Nahum 3:12 All your fortresses are like fig trees with first-ripe figs: if shaken they fall into the mouth of the eater.
Nahum 3:13 Hey, your troops are women among you. The gates of your land are wide open to your foes; fire has devoured your fortifications.

First Corinthians 11:3 But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.
8 man was not made from woman, but woman from man;
9 neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.

First Corinthians 14:33 As in all the churches of the saints,
34 the women should keep silence in the churches, because they are not allowed to speak, but must be subordinate, as even the law says.
35 If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home, because it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
36 What? Did the word of God originate with you, or are you the only ones it has reached?
37 If any one thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that what I am writing to you is a command of the Lord.
38 If any one does not recognize this, they are not recognized.

First Timothy 2:8 I [and the Holy Spirit dictating this to me] desire then that everywhere the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves decently and sensibly in modest apparel, not with plaited hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Have a woman learn in silence with all subjection.
12 I [speaking for Jesus Christ] allow no woman [including and especially Hillary Clinton] to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 because Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved by bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sensibility.

First Peter 3:7 Likewise you husbands, live considerately with your wives, bestowing honor on the woman as the weaker gender, being that you are joint heirs of the grace of life, so that your prayers are not hindered.

Such women-are-the-inferior-gender reality is NOT "misogynist" but rather the Divine designation for such humans cognizant of concepts of morality and immorality, and having eternal souls responding accordingly.

But on the negative side, the Trumpites regard womb babes as human infants in development, while the Hillaryites misconsider such forming children in the womb mere fetal tissue.

To those espousing Trump for President, there is no such thing as abortion "rights" but instead there is abortion "choice," and to those wanting Trump to win the 2016 Election, murdering babes in the womb is not "reproductive" "rights" but instead "homicidal" "choice."

To Trumpites, homosexuals cannot "marry" but instead can be licensed to homosodomize; to Clintonites, homosexuals are "free" (instead of enslaving themselves?) to "marry" (but deceitfully without specifying that such so-called "marriage" is homosexual instead of heterosexual).

Donald Trump is a frank and honest patriot, truly wanting America to "become great again" (even though it is already great, but has been greater in the past before demoncrats in 2006 took over Congress during the Bush administration).
Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, is - by default and in effect - a globalist traitor against America who has done her damndest to expose vulnerable citizens to terroristic destruction with her genuine-Christianity-repressive, devious and illegal, selfish craving of ambition-driven filthy lucre for feminist-sexist empowerment.

Moreover, it does not take rocket science to ascertain that Trump's red-blooded desire to grope is quite in line with the very first Prime Directive which God gave to humanity during Creation Week:

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed [humanity], and God said to them: "Be fruitful and multiply (i.e. grope to have sex), populate the Earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."

...frequently but voluntarily accentuated with the sacred polygamous precept:

Ecclesiastes 2:8 [RSV] I also gathered for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings and provinces; I got singers, both men and women, and many concubines, man's delight...

...rather than pruriently and frigidly suffering under Hillary's warped sexlessly-childless craving for extinction by abortion homicide and pregnancy-thwarting non-birth "control" -- in diametrical opposition to:

First Timothy 5:14 [KJV] So I (and obviously the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus] would have younger women marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the enemy no cause to revile us.

So WHO are you going to vote for and support? WHOSE side will you be on? It CANNOT be BOTH, as the following paraphrases of Scripture indicate:

First Kings 18:21 = And Icorigin came near to all the people, and said: "How long will you go limping with two different opinions? If superior-gender Trump be like God, then follow him; but if inferior-gender Hillary Clinton, then follow her." And the people did not answer him a word.

Matthew 6:24 = No one can serve two presidential candidates, because either he will hate the Trump and love the Hillary, or he will be devoted to the Trump and despise the Hillary. You cannot serve angelic Trump and demonic Hillary.

Matthew 15:13 = He answered: Every pro-Hillary plant which my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up.

...with both real and actual Scripture adding:

Matthew 12:33 Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or make the tree bad, and its fruit bad; for the tree is known by its fruit.

Revelation 3:16 So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of my mouth.

Does it not frequently seem that God sometimes does not care, is absent and non-involved, and even terroristic at times - suddenly allowing an earthquake or tornado or volcano to wreak destruction on and against non-suspecting people and their possessions?

Has He not indeed "consigned all things to sin" by imposing the Three Big Stumbling Blocks of Tempter, Lethal Tree, and Human Free Will into the otherwise-"perfect" Garden of Eden (even though He most graciously provided, for "accidentally" erring humans admittedly under non-asked-for temptational duress, that weird but viable blood-sacrifice-type Contingency Plan for Restoration ultimately taking the form of His Son Jesus humiliating Himself by VERY-humbly but only temporarily limiting His magnificent infiniteness to be contained in conception within the womb of an inferior-gender Jewish and not anti-Zionist-"palestinian" nor islamic/muslim-cultist human, embarrassingly born totally naked, ridiculed during His ministry, and then pathetically, painfully, and lethally nailed to a Roman cross of extreme torture)?

Yet is that not the fault of the so-called "victims" who had not and yet have not learned the details of how the planet they infest works, who have instead wasted their time screwing themselves sexually and in other ways, and who have presumed that God's sovereign will - manifested in immutable phenomena of nature - can be disregarded or violated with impunity and without consequential punishment?

Such deviates have wrongly supposed that forces and entities of God's creation will get out of their way, rather than them humbly getting themselves out of nature's way.

Pro-feminist-sexist, pro-homosodomy-licensing, pro-abortion-homicide-choice Hillary Clintonites (plus her deplorable and irredeemable asinine-and-accursed feminist-sexist supporters) would never be happy in the Heaven clearly revealed in Scripture, where there is absolutely no place for any anti-patriarchal feminist sexism, pervert homo-effeminate sodomy, nor anti-reproductive abortion murder.

And who are such who actually would be happier forever separated from the holy God, his sacred religious right, and their strict and non-compromising morality - even while undergoing permanent torment in flaming Outer Darkness?

Shall we name names? There are so many. And they are so despicably irritating, annoying, deliberately stupid, and obnoxious.

It is safe to say that they are anyone who currently despises faithful-Presbyterian-and former-playboy-immentality Donald Trump and votes for slanderously-lying-and-dishonestly-deceptive pseudo-Methodist Hillary Clinton in the 2016 November 8th Election.

Let's delve a little deeper into what is going on, and what is involved.

It is the assertion of yours truly that, in the case of every single person who has ever lived, is living now, and will live in the future, they are either FOR God and His Law and Gospel...or instead AGAINST God and His Law and Gospel.

Either one or the other - never both.

And they NEVER change that basic attitude to be either FOR or AGAINST God - even though what they say and do throughout their lives and especially to start with might not plainly indicate which it is.

Karl Marx is said to have done his doctoral thesis on the Biblical premise: "I am the true vine" when in a German university as a young man, but soon after became a communist atheist. Charles Darwin wanted to become a priest, but became an anti-creationist evolutionist. In contrast, the Pharisee Saul thought that he was doing God's will and pleasing Him by persecuting the Christian Church (which he judgmentally misconsidered a hypocritical heretical cult at first) no thanks to adverse brainwashing from jealous disobediently-disbelieving peers polluting his attitude. But when he "saw the Light" (literally) on the road to Damascus, his desire to please the Lord took a completely different form.

In all those cases (e.g. Marx, Darwin, St Paul) their basic attitude to God and His creation and human creatures never ever changed whatsoever. But it is not that God FORCED them to choose to be either FOR Him or instead AGAINST Him. Their free-willed response and personal choice for or against Scriptural Law and Gospel was what transpired.

When Christ gave the Great Commission: "Go into the world and make disciples of all nations, teaching them to observe (and hopefully do) all that I have commanded you," the word "make" has to be understood correctly, and has the connotation not of forcing belief or disbelief on those accepting or rejecting such, but instead proposing or advertising it.

Philemon 1:14 ...but I preferred to do nothing without your consent, so that your goodness might not be by compulsion but of your own free will.

It is a mystery why most people have not, do not, and will not comply - in loving and grateful appreciation - in complete submission to the absolute Authority of God...especially those knowledgeable about the dire consequences of their persistent, relentless, incessant, and stubbornly-impenitent rejection.

It is easy to understand why the sensible and humble, concordant with observation of all that around them which they know and honestly admit they themselves did not create nor own without permission, embrace the following:

Romans 7:22 I delight in the Law of God, in my inmost self...

...but impossible to comprehend why the immoral majority on the broad and easy road to damnation (and everlasting painful destruction) would instead despise not merely the [complete and total moral not ritualistic nor ceremonial] Law in their inmost self but also the ignore or reject the precious forgiving gospel of God through Jesus Christ (the only efficacious atonement exclusively for the [completely-and-permanently] penitent against theirs-only sins).

Isaiah 30:8 And now, go, write it before them on a tablet, and inscribe it in a book, that it may be for the time to come as a witness forever.
9 because they are a rebellious people, lying sons, sons who will not hear the instruction of the LORD;
10 who say to the seers: "See not"; and to the prophets: "Prophesy not to us what is right; speak to us smooth things, prophesy illusions...

Jeremiah 5:31 the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?

Jeremiah 11:21 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the men of Anathoth, who seek your life, and say, "Do not prophesy in the name of the LORD, or you will die by our hand"
Jeremiah 11:22 therefore thus says the LORD of hosts: "Behold, I will punish them; the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine...

Jeremiah 14:15 Therefore thus says the LORD concerning the prophets who prophesy in my name although I did not send them, and who say, 'Sword and famine shall not come on this land': By sword and famine those prophets shall be consumed.
Jeremiah 14:16 And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem, victims of famine and sword, with none to bury them--them, their wives, their sons, and their daughters. For I will pour out their wickedness upon them.

Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the LORD of hosts: "Do not listen to the words of the [Clinton-is-ahead-of-Trump-in-the-polls-and-should-be] [HuffPost/Politico/Newsmax/Washington-Post commentator] prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes; they speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the LORD.
23:25 I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in my name, saying, 'I have dreamed, I have dreamed!'
23:26 How long shall there be lies in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies, and who prophesy the deceit of their own heart?
23:32 "Hey, I am against those who prophesy lying dreams, says the LORD, and who tell them and lead my people astray by their lies and their recklessness, when I did not send them or charge them; so they do not profit this people at all," says the LORD.

Amos 7:16 "Now therefore hear the word of the LORD. You say: "Do not prophesy against Israel, and do not preach against the house of Isaac."
Amos 7:17 Therefore thus says the LORD: "Your wife shall be a harlot in the city, and your sons and your daughters shall fall by the sword, and your land shall be parceled out by line; you yourself shall die in an unclean land, and Israel shall surely go into exile away from its land."

Micah 2:6 "Do not preach" -- thus they preach -- "one should not preach of such things; disgrace will not overtake us."
Micah 2:11 If a man should go about and utter wind and lies, saying: "I will preach to you of wine and strong drink," he would be the preacher for this people!

But does it behoove evangelists to only "preach to the choir" and omit confronting those who may or may not be receptive to hearing elaboration on various aspects of what the Law includes, along with invitation to accept the gospel of atonement which Christ Jesus provided for non-accommodation (under non-solicited and non-wanted temptive duress) to Laws of nature and morality?

Ezekiel 3:18 If I say to the wicked: "You shall certainly die," and you give [her] no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from [her publicly-immodest/misdressed/misattired] wicked way, to save [her] life, that [publicly-mopheaded/sleevesless/slacksless/socksless-in-exposed-toes-sandals] wicked [inferior-gender] person shall die in [her] iniquity; but [her] blood I will require at your hand.
3:19 But if you warn the wicked, and he/she does not turn from his/her wickedness, or from his/her wicked way, he/she shall die in his/her iniquity; but you will have saved your life.
33:8 If I say to the wicked: "Oh wicked [man], you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from [his] way, that wicked [man] shall die in [his] iniquity, but [his] blood I will require at your hand.
33:9 But if you warn the wicked to turn from [his] way, and [he] does not turn from [his] way; [he] shall die in [his] iniquity, but you will have saved your life.

First Corinthians 9:16 If I preach the gospel, that gives me no ground for boasting, because necessity is laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel [and to Hell with the ACLU, SPLC, AUSCS, PFAW, HRC, NOW, FFRF, ISIS, etc. if they do not like it]!

Consider this illustration:

What is the overall effect on society and well-being thereof for both those who love to obey stopping at red stoplights at busy intersections (and of course do stop), contrasted with those who hate to obey stopping at red stoplights (but do it anyway out of fear of police retribution and to not inconvenience themselves with accident damage and injury)?

The favorable answer is obvious, and all (consciously or not) generally (though reluctantly for many) comply with the following when gradually decelerating for distant stop signs and stoplights, not harassively tailgating [one car length for every 10 mph of velocity], patiently not exceeding the speed limit, and patiently hanging back instead of dangerously passing on a busy two-way highway:

Psalm 31:24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!
Psalm 37:9 The wicked shall be cut off; but those who wait for the LORD shall possess the land.
Psalm 37:34 Wait for the LORD, and keep to His way, and He will exalt you to possess the land; you will look on the destruction of the wicked.

Proverbs 16:32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

Proverbs 18:2 A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
Proverbs 19:2 It is not good for a man to be without knowledge, and he who is in a hurry with his feet misses his way.
Proverbs 20:22 Do not say: "I will repay evil"; wait for the LORD, and He will help you.

Ecclesiastes 9:17 The words of the wise heard in quiet are better than the shouting of a ruler among fools. [like Obama shouting down the wild non-focused audience at a recent Hillary rally in North Carolina]

First Corinthians 11:21 In eating, each one goes ahead with his own meal, and one is hungry and another is drunk.
First Corinthians 11:33 So then, my brethren, when you come together to eat, wait for one another
First Corinthians 14:31 because you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged...

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing from selfishness or conceit, but in humility count others better than yourselves.

Second Peter 3:14 Therefore, beloved, being that you wait for these, be zealous to be found by Him without spot or blemish, and at peace.
