Alcohol & Spirituality....Why it’s called SPIRIT...

7 posts in this topic

I’m cutting off on the booze, & using what I have left for bartering. 

No more Rum shooter shots for me. 

Another Video worth watching the entire footage, 8:12 on this video is informative to know.

Holy Spirits, !   I’d rather be drunk in.

Alcohol is the most deceptive drug, and it is a drug, until it's effect takes hold.  Each person has a differing reaction, some seem to be positive, people are happy talkative and fun but when the effect of lowering inhibitions or use to excess alters a persons personality so much that they act as a different person that is when people are most vulnerable.

Ruined lives most women that become pregnant out of wedlock have been under the influence  of alcohol or drugs if a unwanted pregnancy is not enough then a abortion is harder on the person it also effects the male in numerous ways so now 2 people then the family on both sides that know.  Some want the child others loath the father it brings out very negative emotions where news of a child in a marriage is a happy event for the most part the difference is glaring either it;s done the right way or with all the problems of the sinful way.

Most people in prison are there because of drugs or alcohol fueled emotions or inhibitions removed  with or without drugs.  The word Gateway, many laugh but the gate I see is the entrance to a prison or mental health facility.  the mind builds a better prison than that of a human built prison and more escape proof.

over the years I have noticed that words have been hijacked and become a punchline like wicked or evil do not cause people to fear or have any reaction. until a officer slaps on the handcuffs or judge brings down his gavel I have had a woman explain the emptiness and emotions after their abortion i am sure each person sees it in a different light most feel shock or upset and or  ill and many very alone.

Stuffing is not just thanks giving turkey or Christmas stockings it is emotions once the container is full it busts out in all kinds of ways, I think it is a natural defense so we can have time to understand or grieve but when we stuff emotions that we are fully guilty of making the mistakes that caused them or sin we come to grips with our soul or we loose it and fall into an ever soul sucking whirlpool of what most can never escape BUT--------  1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

God who sent his Son to give us peace to take our burdens (ALL sin) and freely give us salvation if we  are willing to ask forgiveness and seek his forgiveness.  Jesus then has something to work with, YOUR SOUL.

I have seen this thousands of times  in both ways people accept Christ and become beautiful and productive people,   I have seen the reverse those that never hear or reject the "WORD" or Jesus and are sucked further down the whirlpool,  most die in their shame and sin and when they wake they wake to the judgment their sin and disgrace will be with them and they will be judged not only because they are guilty but because they rejected forgiveness / JESUS  God who came lived as an example to all that he was perfect, died for no crime tortured and died for our sake and in our place for our sin and ALL SINS of those that will accept Him as lord and savior.

I do not recall laughing at or rejecting but I do recall not accepting  the gift,  somehow I knew once I took it my life would change and for part of my life I thought I was having too much "fun" and what I failed to see was fun was weighting me down guilt was building up like barnacles on the hull of a ship so thick it altered my direction and use up resources like money time and emotions for things I thought were far behind me, but that is never the case your sins will catch up to you and eventually bury you.   All my sin is GONE  Romans 8:1 8 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

I have seen the power of forgiveness of truth and a life redeemed by Christ Jesus. and I have seen the complete misery and self loathing of a life lived in selfishness and ignoring that hey need Jesus (forgiveness ) as they are one and the same.    Spiritualism Humanism try to sear your soul tell you that you are able to forgive yourself you can no more do that than perform open heart surgery on yourself and by yourself IMHO.

If you feel guilty you avoid those you feel guilty about or build barriers against them. Once your told your forgiven it either sets you free or opens your hatred toward them because you do not want to feel you have done someone wrong and who are they to think your wrong or that your guilty of wronging them ! people are just as complex as strange and are capable of imagining and building  false facts out of  illogical motives delusions and emotions o protect themselves from the truth.   I mean really you got to be a great B.S.ter if you can con yourself to that degree what does that say about a persons sanity ?

    • sounds like your wearing a 1970s leisure suit, good mention though
    • already do all that my traps are right now live traps damn coons and squirrels are my trouble but since they taste good no problem to big with more taters and gravy. anyone that is not up on self defense or "gun" handling is way behind the 8 ball. it's not that training is not important but there comes a point where your gilding the Lilly and dry firing is the cause of more firearms damage than every other use of a firearm unless one uses a snap cap and if you already know how when and what to shoot it's not time well spent.  Prepping the art of being prepared I am already there all I do ow is back fill and reorder until the flag goes up.  I'm sure I will want some new toy but to be truthful if people can keep their head down 90 days there will be very little to deal with as all the unprepared will have dealt each other out of the game. Cabin fever and doing ninja rolls in the urban jungle scoping out all the stuff you should already have only places you in the cross-hairs of a opportunistic sniper who's spotter will clean you like a chicken for Sunday dinner.  water holes are always a bad place to go to as everyone else will be needing /wanting water. depending on the situation rivers streams and wells may be polluted by the dead since animals will be left to their own roving packs of dogs will add to the otherwise difficult task of roaming around. many a good man has walked up on a spider hole handful of punji sticks leg traps fall traps etc etc etc. its great to be an armchair commando the field test is a bit trickier. I can also see where like many countries in the recent unpleasantness released their zoo critters I know of people that keep large dangerous exotic pets. roaming through homes and commercial centers may lead to some real surprises people are funny that way if they want to punish people that try to steal their sh*t  it may have strings attached ! I already know how to field strip or dress most anything I will encounter that I need or can use if it takes a large vehicle to move better to decommission and move on. piles of goods probably have love apples hidden and some have NO DELAY click bang in a real nasty world there are thousands of ways to meet your end and curiosity kills more than cats. most fields can hold hundreds of people ask any Masai warrior .  Mountains or hills can hold an avalanche of rocks and Switzerland has never been invaded by any army since 1499. Defenses are not always perfect as General Patton stated, that fixed fortifications are monuments to mans stupidity".  Sun Tzu, " The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.  My quote is screw em' all but 6 and baptize them in sh*t  or If I follow anyone they are in chains. whoever said it ," if you want a friend get a dog was a deep thinker and knew the frailties of the human condition.  If you see a dog growling at it's own shadow think of me I have trust issues    
    • they'd better be learning hand to hande, working out, gun handling, dryfiring and studying survival subjects on the kindle reader, grinding grain, checking the nets and traps, etc. What makes you "think" that there will BE any leisure time?
    • a lot depends on what the critter has been eating. Rat probably tastes a lot better than squirrel that's been eating hedgeballs.
    • make a world of difference. So does the polypro bag that i put between the "breathable" and heavy-duty mylar bags. The soft armor boxer shorts and vest  help quite a bit  as insulation from the ground as well as padding on hard surfaces.  Now I'm good down to 20f, no problem in the hammock, or on the ground if there's any debris for padding/insulation. If I had better circulation in my legs, or if i'd use a Dakota fire pit to heat rocks and water bottles, i could go 10F colder.  But then need the super shelter and a fire all night, for colder temps.  If have several pits and use them all night to heat rocks, those rocks will warm  you most of the next day, placed under your hammock, or your raised wooden bed. Thus, no smoke for enemies to see. The later afternoons are typically 15F or more warmer than late at night, and you can usually get away with a Dakota pit fire a bit before dusk, since they'd have to try to find you in the dark.  That is, if you've got night sights and night vision. :-)  Anyone moving in that cold is going to crunch snow or frozen twigs. So the guy who's holding still is a lot more likely to be the one who detects the enemy first.
