MJDHI/TS Update #4 – Case for Faith

Well so far this update has been fantastic to me!

Here are the links to date:

TIAI Update #4a: 777 + 999 = Greatest Proof of Hoax, Not Murder

TIAI Update #4b: 777 + 999 = Greatest Proof of Hoax, Not Murder

TIAI Update #4c: 777 + 999 = Greatest Proof of Hoax, Not Murder

TIAI Update #4d: 777 + 999 = Greatest Proof of Hoax, Not Murder

For me this has been a case for faith… not only in whether MJ is alive but in my faith in God and His Holy Word.

I have talked with many people and I myself have had moments where we thought MJ was alive, and then changed our mind or doubted and thought what if he is dead.

One person made an incredible insight and said, I don’t know anymore because those who think he’s dead have studied and investigated more than I have. BINGO!

You must do your own searching. First hand. Then you will be convicted. Otherwise you will be easily swayed by the opinions of others.

I don’t care what it is you become convicted about as long as it’s truth. In doing your own investigation, you will be strong in your beliefs.

It’s the parable of the sower and the seeds. Matthew 13:1-23. Why people are easily swayed is easily explained.

You have to study for yourself. You have to convict yourself on your belief otherwise you will be devoured by those who are non-believers. Or you will sway with the changing of the wind… blown here and there… he’s alive… he’s dead… he’s alive…

And this my friends has been the biggest lesson I’ve learned since starting this blog.  It has permeated every area of my life.  I no longer take things at face value.  I have studied and will continue to study… I have read and will continue to read…. My life will be a journey of knowledge sifting through and assembling my set of values and beliefs.

I have become convicted in my faith as a Christian as I read the Bible and read books like Case for Christ (which covers arguments of probability similar to Update 4c).

I have become convicted in my beliefs in how I conduct my life… or I should say how I “should” conduct my life!  I’m not perfect at it and will continue to fall… however I at least am striving to live a life of excellence.

And to those of you that read my blog… use this as maybe just a starting point… but please don’t take what I say at face value.  I am just a human that can interpret things incorrectly and I am not so high on myself to think that I have all the answers and can’t learn from any of you! 🙂

That’s why I review all comments, but I will post both the praise and the criticisms of what I write.  They both have a place and they either affirm me or they challenge me and both things are very healthy!

So enjoy the journey, and take the lessons and apply them to all areas of your life.  Always strive for excellence.  Get into the books and read and learn.  Learn about everything!  And be open to both sides.  Listen to the proof both believers and non-believers have and then come to your own conclusions.

L.O.V.E you all!

Of course I looked at the last number in this update outline… 4-44 and decided to do some searching.

http://www.biblewheel.com/Gr/GR_444.asp

444 = Perfect Love

You can read more in the link but what stood out for me is this verse:

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
1 John 4.18

Yes we are living in a culture of fear. We’re scared of terrorist attacks, swine flu, “natural” disasters, death… but we must not focus on the challenge… we must focus on perpetuating the solution.

THERE IS NO FEAR IN LOVE… PERFECT LOVE… L.O.V.E. CASTS OUT FEAR.

Hmmm… maybe it is all for love… :D

  1. […] There were parts b, c, and d to the above update yet TIAI.com never actually redirected to those updates.  See my post for all 4 parts: https://lilwendy.wordpress.com/2010/03/13/mjdhits-update-4-case-for-faith/ […]

  2. Yep I will have to agree with you on this. God is not joking around nor MJ is not joking around…this is about wether we want to believe what’s going to happen in the future or just keep being ignorant because we don’t want to confront the truth. It seems that some how in some way Daniel 12 is coming to pass very soon.
