Doublethink

Elijah went before the people and said, “How long will you waver between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if [you idol] is God, follow him.” But the people said nothing.  (1 Kings 18:21, NIV 1984). 

“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.” (Matthew 6:24, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.” (George Orwell, 1984).  Holding “two opinions.”  Accepting “two masters.”  Contradictory. Simultaneously?  If you think you can doublethink, think again.  It is foolish to think you can.  It violates the law of non-contradiction: contradictory propositions cannot both be true in the same sense at the same time.  It’s illogical.

My Advice – It’s time to make a choice, don’t you think?  “If the LORD is God, follow Him.”

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
