Abbot and Costello – Who’s on First – YouTube

Gee are you serious..???

Moment came at a bible

Study my friend was giving the tiny mega mega church Sunday school teachers on what is theology …

They either had no clue

Or thought theology was better left for pastors and seminarians

Or thought theology had nothing to do with the common Christian

Or thought Jesus never taught theology

Or divided their thinking into two one for the church and the other for the world

Or in saquencho that included everything I mentioned and what their sinful minds and hearts can come up with

Who’s on first
Whats on second and i not know is third….
Theological version of the classic comedy skit
Unlike the classic skit meant to be funny and made up
This was real life both sad and tragic event at Love Gospel church which is located in the bronx…At a meeting of Sunday school teachers and church leaders with my friend leading the event witnessing
Shakespearen tragedy( as you picture me,my friend and the audience experiencing this in real time-a event of epic
biblical theological proportions straight from the twilight zone.

That is when(keeping the Abbott and Costello classic skit in mind As you picture me,my friend and the audience experiencing this in real time.)That Sunday school teacher raising her hand as she said seriously “we can not teach doctrine or theology but the love of God. My friend responded that is doctrine and theology and she retorted again we cannot teach doctrine or theology but who Jesus is. My friend answered again that too is doctrine and theology. At that she did not reply again either out of indifference,ignorance or she finally got the picture…

Gee is the Bible fake

Gee are you serious…

Gee,it is easy to call the Bible fake

Based on others opinions ones indifference, ones ignorance,ones more familiarity with hoaxes and counterfeits than the original:the Bible

And not going to the direct source to study the facts:the Bible

So of course you can easily wave your arms dismiss the bible as fake

In the bizzarro world you are in

You have judged the truth by the fake

And founding the truth wanting not on the scales of historicity and facts

But on the scales of lies myths pride ignorance laziness dishonesty mockery bias cruel and tasteless joke and speculations masquerading as earnest and honest search for truth

But depending on this personal game of make believe

For reasons to reject the truth

Romans 1:18-32 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

The Guilt of the Gentile World

18 For God’s wrath is revealed from heaven against all godlessness and unrighteousness of people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, 19 since what can be known[a] about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, that is, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen since the creation of the world, being understood through what he has made. As a result, people are without excuse. 21 For though they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became worthless, and their senseless hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles.

24 Therefore God delivered them over in the desires of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served what has been created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. Amen.

From Idolatry to Depravity

26 For this reason God delivered them over to disgraceful passions. Their women[b] exchanged natural sexual relations[c] for unnatural ones. 27 The men[d] in the same way also left natural relations with women and were inflamed in their lust for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons[e] the appropriate penalty of their error.

28 And because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a corrupt mind so that they do what is not right. 29 They are filled with all unrighteousness,[f] evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 senseless, untrustworthy, unloving,[g] and unmerciful. 32 Although they know God’s just sentence—that those who practice such things deserve to die[h]—they not only do them, but even applaud[i] others who practice them.

To reject your true spiritual reflection

James 1:24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.

1 Corinthians 13:12

Verse Concepts

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.

In your own magic mirror similar to the one the witch had in the fairy tale of Snow White

And like the witch when you ask the question

Mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest one of all

Likewise the truths response

Will anger and disappoint us

And thus countinely flee and hide from God with your own fig leaves

The Temptation and the Fall

Now the serpent was the most cunning of all the wild animals that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You can’t eat from any tree in the garden’?”

The woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit from the trees in the garden. But about the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden, God said, ‘You must not eat it or touch it, or you will die.’”

“No! You will not die,” the serpent said to the woman. “In fact, God knows that when[a] you eat it your eyes will be opened and you will be like God,[b] knowing good and evil.” The woman saw that the tree was good for food and delightful to look at, and that it was desirable for obtaining wisdom. So she took some of its fruit and ate it; she also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.

Sin’s Consequences

Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden at the time of the evening breeze,[c] and they hid from the Lord God among the trees of the garden. So the Lord God called out to the man and said to him, “Where are you?”

10 And he said, “I heard you[d] in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.”

11 Then he asked, “Who told you that you were naked? Did you eat from the tree that I commanded you not to eat from?”

12 The man replied, “The woman you gave to be with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate.”

13 So the Lord God asked the woman, “What is this you have done?”

And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”

14 So the Lord God said to the serpent:

Because you have done this,

you are cursed more than any livestock

and more than any wild animal.

You will move on your belly

and eat dust all the days of your life.


I will put hostility between you and the woman,

and between your offspring and her offspring.

He will strike your head,

and you will strike his heel.

16 He said to the woman:

I will intensify your labor pains;

you will bear children with painful effort.

Your desire will be for your husband,

yet he will rule over you.

17 And he said to the man, “Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘Do not eat from it’:

The ground is cursed because of you.

You will eat from it by means of painful labor[e]

all the days of your life.


It will produce thorns and thistles for you,

and you will eat the plants of the field.


You will eat bread[f] by the sweat of your brow

until you return to the ground,

since you were taken from it.

For you are dust,

and you will return to dust.”

20 The man named his wife Eve[g] because she was the mother of all the living. 21 The Lord God made clothing from skins for the man and his wife, and he clothed them.

22 The Lord God said, “Since the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil, he must not reach out, take from the tree of life, eat, and live forever.” 23 So the Lord God sent him away from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. 24 He drove the man out and stationed the cherubim and the flaming, whirling sword east of the garden of Eden to guard the way to the tree of life.

Your own emperors new clothes that deceives you

In thinking your spiritual nakedness is covered and clothed

Not willing to see the Truth with your own eyes with gospel prescribed glasses

But depending on the spiritual blindness of others…..

Sin beauty shame guilt

Gee are you serious moment

When This young lady got off the bus here in Washington heights

Going to work or college

And with no shame no modesty dresses fo catch a guy

To draw attention to her,for her outward looks to define her

Some or all of the above

Exhibited all her feminine assets

To be brought or rented

Foolishly In cold weather as well

Reminds how sin has become no source shame or guilt

and if it is it is superficial and temporary

Like a judas

Like a Kim Kardashian

Who is a modern example of marketing shame,guilt and sin

For fame,wealth and power

And has become a more liberating

More badge of honor and prestige than dishonor

In these current modern times

Jeremiah 13:27

People of Jerusalem, I have seen your adulterous worship, your shameless prostitution to, and your lustful pursuit of, other gods. I have seen your disgusting acts of worship on the hills throughout the countryside. You are doomed to destruction! How long will you continue to be unclean?'”

Mark 7:

21“For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed the evil thoughts, fornications, thefts, murders, adulteries, 22deeds of coveting and wickedness, as well as deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride and foolishness. 23“All these evil things proceed from within and defile the man.

1 peter 4:

Surely in the past you have spent time enough living as the Gentiles delight to live. For your path has lain among scenes of debauchery, licentiousness, drunkenness, revelry, hard-drinking, and profane idolatry.

Define ourselves by sin and no longer by the good person

Standard and be they either Christian or non Christian

Living by this standard

Either for life

Or condemnation

Either out of gratitude and love

Or legalism and slavery mindset

Either out of philosophy and tradition morality

Or out of a new heart

Living Heaven here on earth

In preparation of living in Heaven in the future…..
