Disposing of the Trash

AND THE EXERCISE OF FREE WILL

(Sep. 18, 2016) — First, define the terms: What does this author mean by ‘disposing’? He means “getting rid of.” Now, what does he mean by ‘Trash’? ‘Trash,’ as used here, refers to those abusers of their God-given rights and privileges, i.e., those who have been convicted of a crime and sentenced to be incarcerated. In other words, he means prisoners who are or should be locked away from the law-abiding citizenry.

There are those who maintain that incarceration is inhumane and further, many of those same fools even claiming to be believers in God the Creator and this nation’s guide and benefactor time and time again, defy His commandments and refuse to do His bidding. The most egregious example is their defiance of God’s commandment, “And he that killeth any man shall surely be put to death.” Leviticus 24:17

That does not appear to be merely a suggestion or a request; it is an ORDER, A COMMANDMENT! Still, in spite of God’s spoken word to the contrary, 20 of our 50 states have abolished the death penalty, and in some cases it has been declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Absolute nonsense and a miscarriage of justice. Some judges are obviously MAKING law. Following are a few FACTS and a LINK:

There can be no doubt that when God decided to allow humankind to be equipped with “free will,” He was aware that humankind was basically “EVIL.” “The LORD saw how great man’s wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time” (Genesis 6:5).

Let’s here and now clarify a seemingly sticky point. Why would God create evil humans? He didn’t; He knew because He was the Creator and decided to bestow upon Homo sapiens the gift of “free will,” our most precious gift other than life itself. Another gift from God was the act of Creation with the built-in mechanism or process known as Evolution.

God’s first attempt at creating humankind was a success until “free will” led Adam and Eve down the primrose path. They were disobedient and partook of the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, simply a test to see if Humankind would obey their Creator, Who had given them only ONE Commandment.

God banished them from the Garden of Eden to become simple farmers, or “tillers of the soil” as simple farmers whose diet was fruits, vegetables and other edible grasses and herbs and no meat.  Adam “knew” Eve, and she bore Cain and Abel. Cain, being the elder, had the duties of a farm boy, while Abel tended the flocks of animals used solely for sacrifice.

For some small slight or criticism against his actions while making a sacrifice, Cain killed Abel and was banished to the Land of Nod.  The descendants of the family of Adam and Eve consisted of many generations during which disobedience became all too commonplace; God became incensed and He selected the only man who He considered righteous: Noah, selected with his wife, their three sons and their wives to be the only survivors of a worldwide flood.

They did as God commanded; they began the repopulation of this planet. We are their descendants and have become thoroughly evil and await the next and final destruction by Fire as God promised. Do we have the intelligence and the will to return to God’s good graces by, as a first step, “Disposing of the Trash?” I suspect NOT!
