Around and Around We Go

December 24, 2010

As if I needed another hurricane swelling between my ears…here comes Paul — again — and some dude named Timothy. They’ve trapped me between second and third. I’m in another freaking pickle.

Do I head toward the evil physical world or unattainable immortality?

A quiet life or a preachy one?

Listen to my conscious and lose my way or follow a road to…?

Stand up for something I believe in or avoid foolish arguments?

This back-and-forth has created so much dust I can’t tell if Paul or Timothy pegged me in the back with ball and glove but I know I’m out.

I’m starting to feel like a dog that’s getting trained by a college student and a professor. One says do this, the other that. It appears as if they’re saying the same thing, but deviation in syntax and life experience creates a cacophony of noise that makes inference impossible. Who or what am I supposed to follow?

Dispensing advice is easy, but putting the right pieces together is like playing hopscotch on a merry-go-round.

I suppose if the Bible conveyed a clear message Jesus wouldn’t exist because, technically, if a man is to love his child and family, he wouldn’t sacrifice his son. Would he?

Stopping Point: The Letter to the Hebrews

*I’ll be cranking out the remaining books tomorrow via chairlift and Blackberry. Revelations will be my Christmas present. It better be good.
