"Oh My God!" And Other Vain Things...


Exodus 20:7

“You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, for the LORD will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain." English Standard Version
 
"You must not misuse the name of the LORD your God. The LORD will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name." New Living Translation


vain VAIN, a. [L. vanus; Eng. wan, wane, want.]  (Empty, Worthless, Having No Subtance, Fruitless, Ineffectual, having no effect, False).

The common American English Phrase "Oh My God!" is often used when surprised or as an exclamation in speech. Why would this be an inappropriate way to use the name of God?

It's an inappropriate way to use any name. "Oh my Darrell! Look at this mess kids, clean it up!"

A name should be used when speaking to, or referring to, an individual. "Darrell, would you pass the mustard please?" "Oh, I know Darrell. He lives in Texas."

Along these same lines, we would also want to be cautious how we refer to Darrell. Even if we are using the name appropriately, to refer to him; we would want to refer to him accurately.

"Darrell is always struggling to keep up, and he never really gets any work done on time." This is an inaccurate way to describe Darrell at work.

Likewise, when referring attributes to God, we would want to use the same thought. "This was an act of God!" is not accurate to use in the face of devastation. God did not "allow" or "permit" a storm to kill 100 people. It was not His judgment or will. He was not trying to teach anyone a lesson.


John 10:10
English Standard Version The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

James 1:17
English Standard Version Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

All the sin in the world has already been judged, one and for all, on the Cross of Calvary, in His son Jesus. There is NO human on earth that will go to hell because they lied, stole, or murdered. There is no sin being actively judged by God today.

However, we have an enemy. Until this earth is completely done away with, after the rapture, after the 7 year tribulation, after the 1,000 year reign of Christ... the enemy is here and he is evil, and he attacks. ALL evil, stealing, killing, destroying come from him.

There is also the fact that this earth is groaning for the son's of God to be revealed. And the earth itself is tearing apart in these last days.

There is a Godly judgment coming, but it's not for us. It's for Israel and the inhabitants left after the rapture. It is for any left that have rejected the Son of God.

So let's never again blame God for sin, sickness, or destruction. And let's use his name accurately when we use it.

Those are my thoughts today.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

FICO

$ 14  FICO
W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
            The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…

Expectations Are Premeditated Disappointments

Plan Plans Not Outcomes
I have had in my mind and heart a "way it's supposed to go/be", all my life.

So far almost exactly NOTHING has every gone the way it was supposed to go, or been the way it was supposed to be.

As it turns out, I'm a lousy planner of outcomes.

I'm an idealist, who can tell you what the right principles are, but specific outcomes are only within God's hands, not man's.

Maybe I do need to die after all... die to self.

Maybe I need to die to...

"I want""I need""I desire"... and just, simply, follow His lead.

But if I do that, if I follow His lead, that will lead me down paths I don't want to go, into situations I don't want to be in... that will take me to a prison after being beaten (Paul & Silas), it will get me thrown into a Lion's den (Daniel)... Sure, they overcame those situations, but not withou…
