Truthscoop today is about talking up and out there. This pull back the curtain passage from Paul is ever speculated and concluded upon, in ways I'm rarely entirely satisfied, get it. The litmus is, what wrestle means? And this clearly tireless keep-on-keeping-on expressing out truth to, and with, God. The single defining term: Intercession.
Not sure I'm much doing like could and should, not even sure we can say know, until we... experience/struggle through. I know who did/it. Not sure know so many these days, doing/it. But hey... here to tap and dash so little much time to type.
Suffice, Las Vegas talking, is the wrestle. This where the fight is. Pray this gets up and out there and would say; anyone thinks God is not in this exposure, well, must declare...
...you, out the ring.
God is not 'in' the Las Vegas shooting except in protest and grieving at the liars, or better said, the lie-along with-ers. Us, if this is 'you'?
Last night I 'had to' watch Doc Martin on TV. Well done and all that but; a) twice the Dr praised fluoride and faced off a young-man with perceived mental health side-effects, so recommending the meds and getting him back on and 'stablising' this poor deluded by nonsense about 'what's in the water' .
And B) a couple, Christians, who believed God wanted them with cancer and dying. Overseas missionaries misdiagnosed by a 'Nigerian doctor', the joke at the end, a new miracle and them meeting the Dr.
Calvinists should shudder. And all who hook into this. It's 'not God' and yet T.V. mercilessly mocks the claims of Christ because what else are 'we' concluding? God is 'in with' those suffering but isn't the instigator. Not according to Biblical accounts and perspective. Not according to the best of the testimonies from pioneers in praying for the sick and addressing God in this light.
Don't necessarily mean all the razzmatazz that goes on in 'those meetings' we can see. Endless vids, most-oft awkward and forced, weird cultural baggage, with language and manner, that can be... so odd. Reading pre-film days' accounts, display more validity, less glitzy jitterbugging.
The couple portrayed last night on TV is the upside-down making message that; We wrestle NOT.
And supposed, against anything, is against 'God'. And everything... finally, 'is God'. Be it judgement and some predetermined closed outcome. None be open. 'Closed' the word.
It's a kind of Christian pantheism of sorts.
And to Las Vegas. Doctors are providing insight that is being ignored. A second opinion.
Doc "don't be stupid" Martin is quite the lively romp but it's riddled with bad practice.
At one point, someone misquotes 'hypocritic and hippocratic' and '...oath' to Doc. M. Could be taken as a glimpse, at what the producers are really about. Brick-subtle in a medical guise, tyrannical thinking. Stereotype sound-looking heroes for prescribed medication and this without any harm and no-looking at the controversies.
WHICH brings me around to this:
Luke Maguire "A Vaccine Injured Our Son. We Asked Questions & They Took Him From Us."
AND IF you listen to one broadcast this week, please make it this. Weep and get angry.
Below, blurb on the episode:
'Having worked as missionaries in Kenya, Morwenna’s parents, Jack (Kevin Doyle) and Tara Newcross (Rebecca Lacey), pay her a surprise visit, and are surprised by the relationship between her and Al. Morwenna is shocked to discover the real reason for her parents’ return is that Tara has cancer. She has decided against treatment because of her faith. Both Morwenna and Martin think this is a foolish decision.
Louisa’s first Skype call for her new course doesn’t go as planned when Martin decides to tell the lecturer his thoughts on the coursework.
There has also been a break-in at the school. The thief doesn’t appear to have stolen anything - but has torn up photographs. Initially Louisa suspects it is vandalism, but Penhale isn’t so sure. When it happens again, this time at the Lifeboat Station, Penhale is able to piece together, with the help of Louisa, that Dan Willis (Ethan Lawrence), a former pupil, is the face being torn out of the photographs.
With the help of Dan’s mum, Andrea (Christabel Muir) Penhale decides to set a trap to catch him by placing a photograph in the local shop window. Martin asks Ruth for advice when it becomes apparent that Dan has stopped taking his antipsychotic medication and could be having a breakdown.
Morwenna convinces Jack to give Martin Tara’s doctor’s information, when Martin suspects she has been wrongly diagnosed. His suspicions are proved correct when he diagnoses her with Hydatid Disease. Both Tara and Jack believe it is a miracle.'
