Andrei Beyond belief - misplaced faith in a postmodern world

How could anybody even think this - let alone write it?

Now might be a good time to reflect upon the wisdom of the Psalmist to restore a little perspective.

Psalm 145 (146)

1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.

2 While I live will I praise the LORD: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

4 His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.

5 Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God:

6 Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

7 Which executeth judgment for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. The LORD looseth the prisoners:

8 The LORD openeth the eyes of the blind: the LORD raiseth them that are bowed down: the LORD loveth the righteous:

9 The LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.

10 The LORD shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the LORD.

Astounding. Then again, to an atheist, things like this probably make sense:

On the other hand, we have Jesus’ miracles that everyone still remembers, but which only benefitted a few.

I imagine if Obama wins the next election, the comparison will be made, as the polls go low then high, that he rose from the dead.

This reminds me of the temptations Our Lord was subjected to in the desert by the Devil. The temptation to make stones into bread and the temptation to have earthly control over all the kingdoms of the world if only Jesus would worship him.

Difficult to read 16th century English
Got a modern translation ?

Get away with you Graham - do you expect me to seriously believe that you are so uneducated that you cannot understand the language of the King James Bible?

Or that while perfectly capable of leaving a comment on a blog post that you are incapable of using google to find an alternative translation or modern paraphrasing for the Psalm I posted?

I didn't come down in the last shower you know.

This has to be a joke doesn't it? If it's true then I can see how Obama has captured the European's socialists with mere rhetoric over action. I would love to know the thinking process that formulates this piece.
