They say that you can tell a lot about a producer by what he produces.
You can evaluate company management by their employees and services.
You can tell about political candidates by their professed platform,
because - as Jesus said: 'by your words you will be justified, and by your
words you will be condemned.'
Which gets us to God Himself, of course.
Have you ever asked a stranger you have never met before what time it is?
What the time of day is was on their watch? How did they respond? By the
way, did you have a right to ask them that, or instead were you
immorally or illegally imposing on and against them?
So what did they say back to you?
Why did you ask them that in the first place? Did you have faith or
confidence that they could tell you the time of day? That they had
the means to do that? That they would be willing to tell
you the time if they HAD the means to do it (that is, they had some kind
of a timepiece on them, electronic or mechanical, which indicated the time
If you asked them the time, whether or not they then told you the time of
day, was that considered an unconstitutional invasion against (not 'of')
their privacy? Assuredly, it was an encounter, but was it also a
There are many service stations around, with gasoline pumps, open and
available to the general public? Is that discriminatory? Why aren't they
more restrictive as to who enters onto (or is it rather: invades
) the geographical territory of the gas station? Why do you need to
drive into (or is it instead: TRESPASS) the gas station? Do you expect to
find gas in the pumps? GOOD gas? Do you either assume or presume to take
it upon yourself to reach for a gas pump handle with hose attached which
does not belong to you (in one sense?) and insert such into 'your' State-
licensed bank-leased car and fill your vehicle's tank? If you have an
opportunity to do that, do you then have a right
? Or merely instead a treacherous dangerous capacity to do it?
You see a grocery store? WHO SAYS that you are allowed to enter therein?
If you are so (obnoxiously?) forward to enter and even more daring as to
grab one of their carts and put their foodstuff into that
cart, what RIGHT have you to do so? How do you know the clerk at the
checkout counter will like that? If so, what gives you cause to have faith
and believe that they will accept Treasury-Dept currency you are
(presumptively? 'legally?') handling for them to transfer ownership of those
groceries to YOU?
When trying to find and get a spouse for yourself, are you sexually harassing
someone of the opposite sex to (obtrusively?) ask them the time of day,
followed by a host of more probing personal questions? How do you
know if they want sexual gratification from and with you? What if
they are not interested in even starting or continuing to engage in and
pursue a sexual-objective relationship with you?
The Creator is not that much different in attitudes and motivations and
desires as His creatures. Does HE have the capacity to hear
and respond appropriately and adequately to your thoughtful or verbal
prayer requests? If He does, is He willing to answer your
specific prayer requests positively to your satisfaction? Has He ever done
so in the past? With anyone? If you declare it to be so, where is
your proof? Declare your genuine and truthful experiences wherever
and whenever. It might give others confidence to either encounter or
confront, to legally use constitutional freedom and liberty to solicit and
appeal, but not to unlawfully impose, harass, irritate, trespass, nor steal.
