Zee Gimon

I am Zee. I call myself the Observer because that's what I find myself doing most of the time - observe life and people around me. My blog is a Pensieve, similar to that of Dumbledore, used to keep the thoughts and random ideas that visit my brain.

    When I think on Psalms 19 and Acts 17 in conjunction.. I am left to wonder if many religions were born out of a desire to reach out to know God but were stillborn because of lies that were more easily attainable than fully apprehending God.

    I believe God draws us to Him and wants us to pursue Him. Some have given up the pursuit and settled for a god in their image instead.

    I like this quote from GK Chesterton: "Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried. "

    • Psalm 19 keeps coming to my mind whenever i think of this too.

  • I'm not an expert at this AT ALL, but when you look at Bible history, many nations that came about were from the sons of Noah. So Ham, I think, was the father of the Egyptian peoples. Knowing this, you see that some of the things the Egyptians believed (after life and so on) were probably partially taken from the beliefs that Noah himself had about God. I am reminded however of the verses in Romans 1 (which can apply to almost any belief system other than believing in the WAY):

    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

    21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.

    24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

    • I can never see what I'm writing after a certain point..so to continue…I think that its pretty clear that God was visible, but because of their wickedness, God gave them over to their own sin. If you read verse 23…that totally sounds like many religions that we have today: hinduism, buddhism, and pretty much any other religion that worships animals or idols instead of God. I always am fascinated by this passage.
