Excuses we give to ourselves to continue tradition.

ex·cuse
verb
3rd person present: excuses
ikˈskyo͞oz/
1.
attempt to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense); seek to defend or justify.

take heed to yourself that you are not ensnared to follow them, after they are destroyed from before you, and that you do not inquire after their gods, saying, “How did these nations serve their gods? I also will do likewise.You shall not worship the LORD your God in that way; for every abomination to the LORD which He hates they have done to their gods; for they burn even their sons and daughters in the fire to their gods. (Deuteronomy 12:30-31)

This is what the bibles says about practices used to woreship God taken from false gods and their followers. In Deuteronomy Yahweh clearly gives the order to his people that they should not apply ways of the Pagans and or any other False deity into the woreship ways of Him. Notice God never said it’s ok as long as you don’t look upon this the same way they did. No, he is drawing the line and making a clear direct point that whatever ways they made up to  use to woreship their god should never come over to be used to woreship me. Pagans used a multitude of different rituals made up to praise their false deities. God’s people for some reason always found it very pleasing and exciting to copy these ways. Even in the New testament Paul found his church out of order in their woreship of God and attempted to correct them. God doesn’t want what is meant for other gods or created as to support that god associated with Him or his people. We should all take note of this as thanks to the Roman Chruch we have a lot of Pagan rituals that have become apart of Christianity. Rome could not convert the Pagans over to Catholics so they combined their gods with our bible prophets, servants, angels, and God, their days and woreship with ours. As a result we have the image of Christ as baby and cupid being tied together, Mary and Aphrodite, Zues and Yahweh mixed. This is especially seen in the artwork in their bibles and paintings. This is when we adopted the birth of Christ which was done in the end of spring to be done during December. It helps identify the woreship times of the Winter solstice and Christmas trees (their false god tree they adored with silver and gold…as the bible warns us to stay away from..Jeremiah 10). It is especially the source of the Easter Bunny which is a sexual god of fertility of the Pagans and Christ death on what should be called resurrection day but has been infected yet again with false actions to be called Easter. If one would simple ask the common question..what does your savior bleeding on a up right stake or post got to do with a 6 foot white bunny and eggs? They would see clearly these have nothing to do with each other. Most know this but they choose to ignore it because of tradition. They excuse their actions over and over again but yet claim to love Yeshua and would do anything for him. Well, Yeshua himself ask for one simple thing. Obey the word God, by this you show him you love him(John 14:15). Are you doing that? Nobody can answer that question for you but it is the most direct question we can ask ourselves. Are my actions or rituals against his word? It doesn’t matter what way we try and shape it or excuse it. If we are told not to, the word doesn’t say it’s ok if you can explain why you did anyway, only that you don’t do it…period. Adam and Eve both alike gave reasons why they did what they did. God didn’t excuse or forgive their actions because they tried to explain them away. Some even believe that some if not all of the punishments were given because they didn’t own up to their actions and tried to explain them away like most of use do today. We should learn from them and seek a better path.

Avengers 2: Blasphemous, and goes way to far.

Spoiler alert present:

I have spoken against movies before. I have shown that man’s greed for money and their failed attempts to even try and remain accurate to scripture is at best hurtful to Christianity. Well this time they flat out crossed that line even more now.  The Avengers in the first movies had little moments that help define things better for me. When Black Window wanted to call Thor and Loki gods, Captain America response was that “there is Only one God and he doesn’t dress like them” . I loved that moment! I think I was probably the only person that clapped in the movie off that statement (which again shows how little we respect our God). But this part two of the movie shows Jarvis being recreated into a physical person. The character is then fitted with a power stone they called the “Infinity stone” ( meaning “never ending”). And as this AI was being brought back to life after being assumed dead he raises and when they asked him for his name he said his name was “I AM”. Now, I don’t really have to explain to many that read here the level of blasphemy just pushed out. At least I hope I don’t. But for the sake of humor, “I AM” is the name given to Moses(or should I say the name translated from Latin back inside the Hebrew old testament in most bibles). It represent the Personal Name Of God for the Jews.  The name is suppose to sacred to all Jews and Gentiles alike now, to both Christ followers and Jews. It should never be assigned to anyone or anything but The Father and or His Son. For this movie to go as low as this isn’t a accident and was very much on purpose. I frankly don’t care if it was a part of a comic or not. Disrespect is disrespect. Now I know there is going to be those of you who don’t look at this a critical as I do. I am not here to change your view. But for me if you truly believe and are a follower of Christ and or Yahweh as a Jew, this should not be issue where this is acceptable. Movies continue to disregard the seriousness of our Faith and make money in the process of doing it. If I had known this movie had a character named this way I would have never gone to the movies to see it and wouldn’t have lost one minute of sleep over it. As far as the movie itself goes it didn’t beat the previous movie and in fact seemed much weaker accross the board. From story telling to th graphics it was weaker. Top many “obvious” CG scenes and too many story lines going on to be effective. At 8:15pm the theater we were in, at that prime time, wasn’t even full. So I get the sense that this movie will not do what the previous movie did. But if it does, so be it. I won’t be buying the movie when it comes out in stores. It’s like they go out of their way to disrespect Christianity. So I will go out my way to avoid them. Ultimately it’s always up to the individual. But if someone had posted this for me before I went to see it I would have been grateful. They even did a great job and not showing this part until the end of the movie and the way they did it was done very quietly to the point that you even wonder if you heard him right. After looking up the specific line I did confirm what he said. So take this for whatever it’s worth. If it’s not helpful dismiss it and if so use it.
