A Saturday morning thought or two:

Did you know and were you aware that the steering wheel in the car has no effect upon the wheels? It is God who is keeping you on the road and if he decides that he doesn’t want you on the road anymore he will steer you into a pole, a tree, or off a cliff. What Man needs to realize is that there is no more cause and effect other than the Almighty‘s decisions.

And were you also aware that the theory of aerodynamics is just a theory? In fact, as the airplane taxis down the runway, increasing speed, hundreds of angels swoop down from Heaven and lift the wings of the plane. Now the reason plane crashes occur is not due to the myth of engine failure or pilot error, but that there are a sufficient number of sinners on board who souls need to be reclaimed by the Devil. Do not for one moment believe that you can make omelettes without breaking eggs.

God certainly works in mysterious ways. And if you get lost, consider that God also works in mysterious Waze.

All imaginary. All concepts.

Imaginary contracts we all of us predicate so many choices on every day, every hour, every minute.

who forced you to drink those three martinis before you got into the car which was going to be steered into the pole. Nobody can argue that God created the olives in those martinis either.

Arabic for "God Willing." Ojala in Spanish, borrowed from Arabic for the same concept. Everything is as god wills it. Satan too it seems. The priest's car scene in The Amityville Horror is a case in point. And anyone who's owned a Chrysler product knows they're the realm of the devil.

Actually, it's the ultimate cop out and the ultimate excuse. "Seatbelts, vaccines, -fill in the blank- aren't necessary. God will protect me." Except they forget the fine print. There's always the fine print. Matthew 4: 7 - Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
