At Work?

I'm at work today. You?

Does your brain ever go into "big picture mode", like mine does? I have often thought, "It's curious that so much of man's life is spent working in order to survive." Seems a little odd, doesn't it? Do you work more than you sleep during the week?

To Adam he said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate from the tree about which I commanded you, 'You must not eat of it,' "Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat of it all the days of your life.

It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field.

By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return."

Genesis 3:17-19

This is just another product of Adam's original sin, and the "old nature" that we all struggle against.

The same condition separates us from God. Only Christ's offering can bridge the gap, and wash us free of that "old nature" that we inherited from Adam. Praises to Him!

Enjoy your day at work, friends.

  1. I don't know.... I know quite a few people who haven't toiled a day in their life, probably don't even know what toiling means!

    One guy I know was left a chunk of money and now just loafs around writing music and poetry; he seems pretty happy. No toiling there, certainly not in the fields.

    I am at work though and, as an evilutionist-atheist-eugenicist, my toil is never-ending.



    As long as you have a healthy work-life balance and the work you do makes a difference, it never seems that bad.

    Cheers,

  2. There are always some loafers.

    And, of course, I wasn't implying that we all work in fields :-)

    I am at work, and I love what I do. I wasn't complaining about work, just explaining why we all have to work.

    Eden must have been very nice before the fall.

    Heaven will be nicer than that.

    If you die today, are you THAT confident in your atheism, that nothing will happen and you will just cease to exist? I mean honestly, if you were in a situation in two hours where it became suddenly crystal-clear that you were just about to die...you're that certain??

  3. I've never said I was certain. It's just the most likely option out of many possibles, according to the information I have at my disposal.

    You're verging on Pascal's Wager here mate!

    Fear of death is not a good reason to believe something, though it's the situation where believing in something is probably very useful.

    I expect my post-life experience to be identical to my pre-life experience.

    We are all made of stars.

    To the stars, we return.

    Maybe.
