in circles

Possibly the best place to start anything is at the beginning. But how can one tell the point in time that is really the origin of anything unless we look back into the past to see when it actually started. Even then what we think was the beginning may have been only part of the start, with interrelated events that are important parts of the main event actually commencing before and after the original time we thought was the start.

That having been said, the official beginning of a thing would have to be the oldest part or partial part of any small portion or sub-portion of the whole of an event – whether these parts are known or unknown. But it’s these small, unknown parts that are the things that thicken the plot and muddy the water of the whole main event.

These unknowns, whether they contribute to the whole or to a part or sub-part, can only contribute partially until they are either known or at least partly known. Then if one of the unknowns happened to be a secret and only revealed after severe coercion, it could become a separate event altogether and no longer related to the main, except in its past.

Hopefully this cleared up any confusion anyone may have had as to how I arrived at the timetable of the main event. Sometimes a clear, concise explanation can be as important as the event that it explains, maybe even superseding it. It has certainly caused me to feel more like I do now than I did just a short while ago.

Whether the events of our lives are simple or very confused and run in circles, God can answer all our questions and forgive any sin – even complicated, confusing ones – if we will only ask Him to do so. ec

Would you say that the 'main event' is to be reborn? I think Christ spoke of that...

This reminds me of the stuff I had to read in college. and like college the only thing of true import is the last paragraph.

Wow! I don't know if I understood all that but I know that I agree completely with your last paragraph. :)

bonita - My point exactly! Life without Him makes no sense at all.

TMG - It was an exercise in silliness until the last paragraph.

adannells - The last one was the only one meant to make any sense. ec

merle - The confusion was on purpose - meant to show what this world has without Christ. ec
