Characteristically, the bible transforms any calamity to the blessing. So the coming together in Jesus name enables us to experience the God’s presence (Matthew 18:20)However, the Bible guards us from falling asleep in self-satisfaction. For example, I rejoiced at taking the pictures of my surrounding but when I opened the Bible, God’s Word severely forewarned:
You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below…~ Deuteronomy 5:8
What to do ? Who comes in disguise as the fine arts?
The quote of Paul Ferrini (“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.”) ended my earlier post. Then it was the words that embellished the text, but now that statement obliged me to think because the phrase was used not end but start the “Fellowship”, my current post.
So, do beliefs separate indeed?
Let’s look. The bouquet was the stunning indeed, yet the flowers withered up in a vase, because the deflowered buttons made the beauty: the loving thoughts were without the beliefs that nourish and keep us alive.
Likewise, many “nice visions” look like the buildings on the sand – like the houses without the foundation when we start to think.
In Memoriam ~~ Tomas Karkalas
The bloggers are special people : while the citizenry search for the quiet place in the stressful day, the bloggers dream how to increase the traffic to their blogs. The statement? I will share the quote:
“Beliefs separate. Loving thoughts unite.” ~ Paul Ferrini
And this excerption is my religion. It is the sharing of God‘s love. That is the Christianity.
the apple of discord ~ Tomas Karkalas
The picture looks outwardly drastic, the apple of discord, yet I am dreaming about the divine love and the image talks in unison with me. So we see the striking contrast between visual story and the mastery of listening. So the artworks are the transformational. Your interpretation will make the last brush stroke.
It‘s hard to name the reality properly: the jobcentre sees me as uneducated, despite the study of the Scripture have taught me everything I needed to know. God‘s Word teaches endurance in the flow of the current misunderstandings.

Fantasy bubbles are exploding; our handmade arts look like the meteoric attractions. They produce the pictorial splashes, yet who would care for the tatters? That’s why lots of pictures are rolling in the mud of the forgetfulness. The heart is crying for the survival and thus leads all those who have the ears to God’s Word. God dries our teardrop and gives the peace in Jesus Christ.
Humility / Tomas Karkalas / Klaipeda, Lithuania
God’s being the same today as He was yesterday enables us to trust in His Word. What can be and must be increased is our own understanding of the Scriptures. As we will grow in a study, our questions about God’s knowledge will be changed to the gratitude to God for the healing us from our misunderstandings.
