TWO HEADS
 
What an extraordinary experience it was. We were invited to look at a newborn calf by the farmer of our neighbourhood. There were quite a many people watching, and wondering that strange sight. Two headed calf. You cannot see that kind of sight everyday. Normally mother would lick her calf, and would take care of it as she should. Now the mother didn't notice it at all. We all noticed this self-evidence. That calf by no means will survive. We all felt pity for it. All kind of things can happen. Oh my goodness.
 
I have to go a little bit aside, and sit down to ponder this incident. How on earth could something like that happen? In what phase the genetic damage has come into sight? So much to think about this. It crosses my mind that there are other two-headed cases, too. Even in the body of Christ, according to some poeple, there are two heads. The big and the small one. Even in this case that genetic damage has come in the sight at very early stage.

Many have the opinion that in the Vatican there is found that little head, the substitute of Christ (Vicarius Filii Dei), whom they even call 'holy father'. I remember seeing a photo somewhere, and in that photo priests were lying on their bellies before the throne of pope. For some strange reasons people do not see in this a genetic change whatsoever. There have been, of course, in the course of years some who have noticed. Nowadays people's eyesight is blurred, and they want to become closer to the mother church. Even born again believers approach the Catholic church because the new pope has such a charming personality. Oh yes, in the midst of the mother church, there are born again believers, too. It might be so but I wonder one thing though. If Jesus is their Lord why they still bow the pope in their hearts. If they bow to the pope, they are baring their behinds to the Lord. For heaven's sake!

In ancient times God spoke to Jews how He had liberated them from the den of slavery. The slavery in their lives were literal. In our case it is about the slavery of sin. God is still speaking to us all same way about the walk after the liberation: " And God spoke all these words: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me. “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments." (Exodus 20:1-6)

I think that many have forgotten that God is still the same God of the Old Testament. He has not, in no stage, gone through personality change. He is still rigorous about the honour and holiness of His name. He do not share His glory with an idol, living or wooden one: "I am the Lord; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols." (Isaia 42:8)

Ah, my wife is calling me. The afternoon coffee is ready. Well, I have to hurry up and taste a cup of delicious coffee. How great that is that there are still people in this world whose throne of hearts are reigned by the Lord, and Him alone: "For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way." (Eph. 1:15-23)
