Pathway in the Sea

Ever see a butterfly flutter by? John 3:7-8

Psalm 77:19

Thy way is in the sea, and thy path in the great waters, and thy footsteps are not known.

"The best way to show that a stick is crooked is not to argue about it or to spend time denouncing it, but to lay a straight stick along side it."

The embedded videos that appeared below have been deleted from YouTube because the producers of  "God's Cartoonist: The Comic Crusade of Jack Chick" - 64films- complained of copyright infringement. While their claims have merit on technical grounds, they reflect an inherent hypocrisy when it comes to free expression that legitimately undermines their contempt for the views of Chick Publications. Thank you for helping me to make my point, 64films.

1.0 out of 5 stars 64films' idea of free expression is a one-way street.February 11, 2012
This review is from: God's Cartoonist: The Comic Crusade of Jack Chick (Amazon Instant Video)

"God's Cartoonist: The Comic Crusade of Jack Chick" mocks the views expressed in Jack Chick's Gospel tracts. I created a montage of material from the "documentary" (I coined the term "propagendary" to describe such anti-Christian humanistically/socialistically/materialistically/amorally biased mind-bindery)overlaid with tracks and graphic art from Led Zeppelin to mockument their mocking of Chick Publications'material regarding Satanic influences and themes in popular, especially "classic rock" music. I uploaded the content thus produced to YouTube mainly for linkage to my blog as reference material. 64films filed a copyright complaint and YouTube pulled the first segment (of three)of the video. I have since deleted the other two myself. I hereby refer 64films to Christ's teachings regarding hypocrites and formally apologize for infringing on their rights. Enjoy it while it lasts.

When I consider the devil, I'm humorously reminded of Capt. Jack Sparrow in "The Curse of the Black Pearl" when, during his swordfight with the blacksmith's apprentice, his opponent protests, "You cheated!" and he points to himself with the only descriptive term necessary: "Pirate!" (Duhhh!!!) Many will protest in the day of judgment, pointing at the devil, "He lied to me and deceived me!" To which I hear the sardonic and self-descriptive reply, "The Devil!" (Duhhh!!!)

Revelation 20

1And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
7And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
9And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
10And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
11And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
12And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
13And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
14And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
15And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
"Sardonic" is not to be confused with "sardonyx".

Revelation 21

10And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

11Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;

12And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:

13On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.

14And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

15And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.

16And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.

17And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.

18And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.

19And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;

20The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolyte; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
