Fortune Has a God

Hey I went all out
To make my own luck
Since fortune has a god
That answers the prayer called work

Hey I got the job
You said dumb luck
But it was just God
That I got favoured

So God of fortune and luck
Answer my wisdom and love
But there are times I have none
So then help me God

There’s no God but YaHWeH

He is the one God
He is the one Holy
He is the one Perfect
He is Love

Man is free to do as he wills
Yet Your Will is always fulfilled
You are before the beginning and after the end
The colour in my world
The life in our world

All wise
All seeing
All knowing
All powerful
Kind and Merciful
Loyal and Faithful
Just and Righteous
Others have tried to claim your place
But they will always fail
You are the Most High

You are wonderful
And a wonderful friend and Father
Your love is brighter than the sun
Closer than my heart to me
I am joy-full and grateful
That I know You
That I see You
That I feel You

Your son came so that I could also become a son
Jesus Christ came
And gave us His Life
For all these miracles and many many more
I am grateful

Information, Being, and Living

From information theory, we might want to say these things relating to life, nature, and society. Each thought has significant consequences.

Wherever there is change, information has been generated or effected. This is the establishment of purpose and meaning, since a destination becomes implied by change, or because of it.

E.g. Movement (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual …).

Every change is a cause. And we change as we move, exercise, take action, make action….

Change, or information, does not have to be perceived for it to exist. However, that it exists should mean that it is perceivable.

E.g. The cycle of cell replacement in the body. Healing and repentance. Impression of righteousness, faith, hope, love….

A state of constancy (like a change with difference only in time) is itself information: speaking either of a powerful inertia, or of a balance of influences. Constancy tells one that another can be trusted to be/do ….

E.g. Attitudes and character. God. Commonsense. Physics. Satan. Chemistry. Fidelity. Biology.

If an apparently random system, or system far from equilibrium, continuously produces information, then over time, that system will arrive at an equilibrium position or system (even if complex).

E.g. The development of the United States. Origin of the world. Rockefeller’s increase in wealth. Socialism. Scientology. Increase in people giving away their virginity during their teenage years. Gluttony in food, drink etc. Divorce. Social organisation ….

Why is there something rather than nothing

Why is there something rather than nothing?
An answer is that we cannot say.
Explorations in physics may explain the beginnings of the universe,
but not its origin, we could say.
The mantra of bombardment and collision
looking for that which is fundamental
and to explore it further
might dwell inside of sceptical regress,
one of the Trilemmas of Agrippa.
Another of which leads back
to where we started.
That is, the question.
And the last, a certainty
To which we may ascribe the trait:
no beginning and no end.
It is what it is.

If the Higgs is the last,
or string theory be right,
what we have is still some thing.
So we trace again to the lemma,
saying that there was a first:
energy or matter,
it doesn’t matter.
For by Einstein,
they are linked by a thing:
we call it light.
A constant effect,
simply present.

Which came first,
somethingness or nothingness?
If it were to be nothingness, then how did anything come to be;
and if it were somethingness, how did it come about.
Which of these two did you choose to be true;
your preferred mystery.

Forgiving: Comparing Man’s Memory with God’s

Oh forgive and forget
How could that ever happen?
To forget, I mean
The offence has registered its presence
Has its own folder in my cabinet

The hurts have passed
Yet the memory remains
Just a scratch away?
Or buried deep, never to be seen

How do you forgive like God?
His memory is neither short, nor long
It is present, just present
When He forgets
It is that what he forgot never was
So that there was nothing He forgot

God forgives with forgetting

So if when God forgives, He forgets
It becomes awkward when one tries
To remind Him of something that
He has no memory of.
Therefore, “what in My Name are you talking about?”

The Most Basic Wedding

No registries
No holy men to preside over ceremonies
No person to give away the bride
Nobody else to say “I was there”

It would just be a man and a woman cutting a covenant with God as witness. Traditional, court, and religious wedding ceremonies are an enactment of this, with human witnesses.

What if they did not regard God? God would still be witness. Because, it seems, that once the mindset is of marriage, whether or not it is formally recorded or publicly declared, God’s acknowledgment is activated.

So this is what wedding seems to be: when the man and woman agree that they are married, and they seal it with something strong enough to confirm the bond. Two things come to mind: sex and words to the Truth of it. Both affect our spirits.

Adam saw Eve; he married her with his words as she concurred. Such speaking mean something. Words are not ordinary. To Eve, Adam had said, “You are bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh…” Eve must’ve affirmed because their lives afterwards reflected that reality. And they made love, certainly.

There was no one but Adam for Eve to marry and vice versa.
You can marry someone just because they’re available for marriage.
Adam and Eve worked well together, it seems.

Will and Effect

That every effect has a cause is a reasonable thought. If this were absolutely the case, then, no man has free will. Because ‘free will’ by definition or design must have the freedom to be arbitrary. Either that it should need no cause for its exercise or that it can ignore a cause or change the usual effect of a cause.

Free will is expressed by choice, however, it is plausible that the choice itself was a necessary effect — meaning that it was impossible for there to be an alternative. If there’s always a cause to every will, then ‘will’ cannot be wholly free.

The cause and effect idea leads to a chain of cause-effect relationships which in theory can have no end; it speaks to an infinitude of past and future.

Could there ever come a time in the unknown future when absolutely nothing exists, when existence would have moved to a state of true nothingness. Was there ever a time when there was true nothingness.

We face a paradox, that there is existence at all.
It’s paradoxical that something would appear to have no origin.

‘Will’ must be the ultimate reason (or cause) if there’s a starting point for which absolutely no cause can be determined. Let’s say, like the Big Bang—in the theory (I may be wrong). If you say that certain conditions resulted in the Bang, then those conditions, if you agree with the theory, are the cause of the bang and therefore the origin of the universe. And the chain may continue if you ask what led to those conditions.

The theory can’t preclude the existence of God, who Christians regard as the ultimate cause of our, and all, reality. He definitely must have neither beginning of days nor end of life. That the solar system exists, and that man appeared on earth is the result of a chain of cause effect interactions. One can at the same time see that it was by design of the numinous one, God, without any contradictions.

Randomness as demonstrated in nature and the evolution of the universe is not analogous to the expression of will. The randomness in nature is causal up to a near infinite degree in the chain of causality. It appears random because humans lack God’s capacity to know every interaction and cause-effect relationship.

For instance, it is easy to encrypt data using the so-called RSA algorithm, but it is very hard to decrypt without the key. This is facilitated by a gap in the derivation of the formula for prime numbers. This knowledge gap is represented in the Riemann Hypothesis. We can thus say here that a perception of randomness is the acknowledgement of ignorance.

Cause-effect implies that randomness is only a perception; so that all inanimate random systems are quasi-random (pseudo-random, if you prefer).

Will exists, free will, and it can exist independent of and prior to cause. Hence, an ultimate cause and the superior reason. Any effect that results is what it is.
