I have a good friend who produces some absolutely stunning messages about Scripture. He uses memes, ‘flip-books’ and other attractive graphics to help get his message across. The idea is to make his messages so visually appealing, you’ll take time to read them while you’re looking at them. Unfortunately, while he continues to present his information in visually appealing ways, he’s found it necessary to shorten his already brief messages. He says it’s necessary, because people don’t have the attention span necessary to read longer messages. While I understand why he’s doing what he’s doing, I cannot and will not follow his lead.
If you wish to understand what I know and am trying to show you, I’ll keep trying to explain it until you finally see what I see (or the Lord calls me to account). But you’ll have to do your part and work for it. That means you’ll have to do your own research. You can start by following the links I provide, but don’t stop there. Follow whatever trail you find in those links. Look for additional information that relates to the subject at hand. Dig! Question! Think! But do not tell me what I write was ‘tldr’ (the lazy person’s way of saying, ‘too long; didn’t read’). You will not be happy with the response you receive. You absolutely do have time to read the information I present to you. Put down your phone, turn off your TV and use some of that time we all waste to educate yourself. If you want to see what’s coming your way before it hits you, you can no longer afford the luxury of embracing that teeny-weeny attention span ‘They’ have programmed into you.
It only takes an hour or so a day to learn, but it takes hours every day to remain zombified. So decide: do you want to learn to see the Truth with clear eyes, or do you want to remain blind and live in darkness? Sight requires work, which requires prolonged, focused effort. But staying blind is easy. Just type, ‘tldr,’ in the comment section below and go back to your Facebook page. However, if you’re going to do that, please, move on from this blog. It’s not for you! I only want people who are seeking the Truth following me on this blog. This doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything, but it does mean we have to agree on ‘right reason.’ Otherwise, we will never agree on anything — ever with ourselves. If you think that sounds harsh, fine; but the type of people I want following me will not only understand that I’m not being a ‘hater,’ they’ll know I’m actually writing out of an agape love for those who are trying to find The Way.
