ACP — A Crooked Path
I had the title and illustration for this piece in June of 2021. And it sat idle in the “Drafts” bin. Not a word added beyond the title. I haven’t been writing many stand alone pieces, or “Ken’s Columns” lately. I’ve developed this habit of adding some bits as a preface to other articles found. This has become wearisome today. I spent a few hours reading my way about the latest from other people in other places. Nothing struck me even though so much is going on. More than can be kept up with, really.
I got the idea for the title for this piece from a documentary series I’ve watched about nine times on the historical events from the end of World War I up to Germany invading Poland in September of 1939 and World War II starting [although the actual beginning of World War II occurred much earlier and began in China, but why bother with that fact since it isn’t widely known even if true — it isn’t taught in schools — but then, is history even taught any longer?] The narrator of the documentary series spoke of so many foolish and arrogant people in various nations and their behavior, descending into banality, illusion, a form of self-indulgent ignorant insanity and he used the phrase “Following Alice through the looking glass.”
What’s that some people have said at times? Those who do not know, learn from history are doomed to repeat it?
While I’m writing here of historical matters do not run and get your swimsuit out and expect to be diving into the secular historical pool here, though certain references to such have been made, and most likely will be made as we go along.
No, this is about the spiritual history of mankind. And if you’ve been enslaved by modernists and have been shackled into this militant revived paganism and sorcery rebranded as something desirable called “feminism” — I am woman hear me roar! — a subset of the New Age dogmas [merely repacked to be palatable Paganism] having infected every institution in Western society keep your knickers on and tidy and untwisted. Woman was taken from man, thus she is called woman. From man. You see, I believe every word in the Bible. Every word.
Before the fall of man & woman:
Then the LORD God said, “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him.” Now out of the ground the LORD God had formed every beast of the field and every bird of the heavens and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. The man gave names to all livestock and to the birds of the heavens and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the LORD God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said,
“This at last is bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called Woman,
because she was taken out of Man.”
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:18-25 — English Standard Version
When I originally sat here at the keyboard, after having spent too much time finding things that did not move me, or lead me to think I should be spending time copying and pasting and adding my bit to them, the title “Passion, Priority & Purpose” came to mind. That is the subtitle here.
About the passion a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ ought to have.
About the prioritizing in their life a true believer needs to have.
And about the whole purpose of everything in a true disciples of the Lord’s life. If they truly believe. Where the heart, mind, spirit, and body ought to be.
And this will be continued later on. Please make sure to come back to A CROOKED PATH from time to time to see the continuation of this piece. There will be more. There always is…
…because the spiritual history of men and women is of much greater importance than the secular history that will pass away. And in the age in which we all live? There are events taking place, things being shaped, altered, and brought about that have never occurred in world history before. And there is a reason why all this is taking place. You can either doubt this, fear this, remain distracted and absorbed in self, in the temporal not looking up from the glowing screen of banality in your hand, continue in denial delusion and illusion following Alice through the looking glass — or you can pause, look, listen and not fear but draw near to how every event — everything — is a piece of the puzzle being put in place to fulfill every jot and tittle, every word within the Word.
This looks to be an ongoing piece. From this point onward.
I hope and pray you have at least a modicum of interest to return for the why of all the what [it shouldn’t be a surprise to some if they’ve read the Book and beleive]. And to explore this place further if you have not already done so, do so.
