Sunday, July 1, 2012 Weekly Reading. Only the disobedient die.

Today’s Reading from the Book of Wisdom is a wonderful description of the Catholic Fundamentalism view of Creation.  We have but to re-translate “fashioned” and “formed” into “programmed”.  When we do, we see that only the disobedient die.

Reading 1 Wis 1:13-15; 2:23-24

“God did not make death,
nor does he rejoice in the destruction of the living.
For he fashioned all things that they might have being;
and the creatures of the world are wholesome,
and there is not a destructive drug among them
nor any domain of the netherworld on earth,
for justice is undying.
For God formed man to be imperishable;
the image of his own nature he made him.
But by the envy of the devil, death entered the world,
and they who belong to his company experience it.”

It is clear that The Creation Program was written and downloaded without any destructive errors in it.  But, “by the envy of the devil”, destructive errors entered into The Creation Program.  Those errors could cause death, and those “who belong to his company experience it”.  Only the disobedient die.

Those beings in “his company” include both  the envious angels who followed the devil and the humans on earth who willingly download those errors and operate by them rather than obeying The Loving Programmer’s Operating Instructions.

Scripture makes it clear:  those who choose to “belong to  his company” will die.  Only the disobedient will die.  Death follows from have separated themselves from The Loving Programmer, The Program, and The Holy Wireless Connector.   They are erased from The Program.
