Share Your World From 5-10-21

I am finally getting around to taking part in this week’s SHARE YOUR WORLD CHALLENGE. I love this challenge where Melanie asks us five questions and in answering them we share our world. My answers to this week’s questions are down below. So when you have finished reading here please click the underlined link above and see how Melanie’s other contributors have answered.

What do you believe but cannot prove?

That Jesus is soon to come and establish His Kingdom on the Earth. Of course my not being able to prove it will be a temporary situation if I am right.

Do animals have morals?   Exclude human beings from the equation please. 

Not our morals for certain. They after all didn’t eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. But there are certain rules they live under according to the Word of God.

The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.

“But you must not eat meat that has its lifeblood still in it. And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each human being, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of another human being.

“Whoever sheds human blood,
    by humans shall their blood be shed;
for in the image of God
    has God made mankind. Gen. 9

Is there inherent order in nature or is it all chaos and chance?

Oh! There is an order in nature. God is a God of order. That said the creation has been subjected to a frustration by the power of sin now coursing through it. That is the power we call chaos.

Where is your least favorite place in the world?

There are several places I have visited where I had a very bad time. My experiences have colored my feelings for these places:

Las Vegas

Las Vegas Strip Planned a Safe Reopening | Smart Meetings

Salt Lake City

Digging Salt Lake City For 2 Days | Visit Utah

New Orleans

New Orleans - History, Louisiana Purchase & Hurricane Katrina - HISTORY

Gatlinberg

7 Unusual Things to Do in Gatlinburg TN and the Smoky Mountains

Feel free to share something about the seasons that makes you smile!

  1. Thank you Pastor Joseph for Sharing Your World! Such magnificent answers! I was sorry to see Salt Lake City hit your list of places you had a bad time, though! It is said that in these last days SLC will become like Sodom and Gomorrah, a wicked wicked place. Further proof if one believes, that things are winding down. Some of us out here though are nice people, so maybe if you get this way again, you’ll encounter some ‘good’ Utahans? My apologies! Thank you for those beautiful photos too, nature and Springtime are awe-inspiring! Have a great week!

    • Oh! It had nothing to do with the people. The heat was like nothing I have ever felt before and the weekend I was there the greenhouse gas effect was terrific. I got wickedly sick from the fumes and literally took to my hotel bed for the whole of the stay. Another person in our party had a heart attack from over exertion in the heat and had to leave the tour. We Northerners have very thick blood because we live so long in the cold so sudden exposure to big heat can be catastrophic.

      • Ah! Yes, it gets hot here, it can get upwards of 115 or more (in the shade) the further south you go in the summertime. I live in the northern part of the State and this year anyway we haven’t even cracked 80 yet. I’m not complaining, I don’t like the heat either and the big cities? Do stink (highly odoriforous). I never noticed that smell until I moved away. I’ve gone back to see doctors or take care of business in Salt Lake and I don’t know how I lived with that stench all those years. I guess it becomes familiar after a while and the Great Salt Lake is pretty stinky too, being a ‘dead’ lake and having all those brine shrimp expiring… I hope you can visit again in a more temperate time of the year. There’s some amazing scenery in Canyonlands, but there’s a short window where it’s warm enough, but not too warm, and it hasn’t snowed.
