How to play golf with God and win. Golf is a game which some people should not play. You know the type of person I’m talking about. The one who after missing a put who throws his putter almost across the green causing a huge gouge in the green from the putter hitting and skidding into it then ending up sticking up out of it. The one who swings so hard and fast with his driver that the driver after coming out of his hands goes further down the fairway than the golf ball does. The one who after missing the golf ball for the third time in a row from a fairway rough who breaks his five iron over his knee. The one who after chipping his golf ball over the green for the fourth time who wraps his eight iron around a near by tree. The one who with almost every missed shot says, “I did it again!” Believe it or not but I actually played with this person a few years ago and this all happened on the front nine of a really nice country club on a very beautiful day. The back nine didn’t go much better however he did stop breaking and throwing clubs. This wasn’t the first time that I had played golf with my friend yet it was the worst time that I had seen him have at the course. He didn’t get to play as often as he wanted to play and he didn’t play as well as he wanted to play. He would often say the, “I did it again!” statement and get upset though this was the first time that I had seen him throw and break clubs. It seemed to me there was something more behind the anger he was exhibiting yet golf does have a way of getting to someone in such a way that many other sports do not. My friend was away from the golf course a very nice person who was rather successful with a loving family and knowledgeable in his field and whom I had seen helping his elderly neighbor out by cleaning out his gutters during a down pouring rain. This was the last time that I had played golf with him and it wasn’t due to his actions on the course that it was the last time we played together; I moved to another state. Talking with a mutual friend, I did find out that this was one of my friend’s last days of playing golf too. After my move to a different state, my golf outings had diminished due to schedule and other sport interests however I still play a round or two a year and go to the...

Satan is a Murderous Deceitful Liar Beyond all Doubt. It was brought to my attention the other day that some people actually say that Satan is honest and trustworthy and not God. These people actually take the word of God from Genesis and use it against God in their saying that in my words; Satan got a bad wrap and really didn’t do anything wrong because he was and is honest and God isn’t. Well, let’s go through Genesis and see what we find about God’s and Satan’s honesty and trustworthiness. Starting with Genesis chapter 2, verses 16 and 17 where God gives Adam the commandment to not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil in the midst of the garden in Eden. The LORD God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die." (Genesis 2:16-17) From this we know that God told Adam that “From any tree of the garden you may eat freely” yet only the tree of the knowledge of good and evil should not be eaten from and that eating from it will cause death. This was a clearly stated command from God for Adam to not eat from this tree. Note too that God also told plainly what the consequences would be if anything from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil was eaten. Notice that God did not say that death would come at the very exact time of eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil but that “for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.” God was telling Adam that eating from this tree would cause death starting from the time anything from it was eaten and that Adam would die after eating from the tree. As is today, we are only a breath, a heartbeat away from death. Adam at the time when God told him to not eat from that tree was not this way. Adam was created by God to be in the garden of Eden for as long as he did not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil without ever dying. Adam would have been alive and well forever if he were to not eat from that tree without ever knowing about death and dying. God was telling Adam that eating from this tree would change that and that he would start to die at the point of eating from that tree. From these two verses in Genesis chapter two we see that God told...
