Attention Deficit Disorder

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)

“Knowing that whatsoever good
Thing any man doeth, same shall
He receive of the Lord, whether he
Be bond or free.
And, ye masters, do the same
Things unto them, forbearing threatening;
knowing that your Master
also is in heaven; neither is the respect
of persons with him”.
Ephesians 6:10, 11.

There is a mental disease that has become prevalent among the young people. The disease has a special name which each one of my readers will quickly recognize. It is a disease that inflicts every single person directly and yes in the end it rises over many obstacles but can result in many areas that we do not consider.

The affliction is commonly known as attention deficit disorder. The brain never reaches its potential. The mental capacity is stopped. All of the population has been infected. The disease has been brought about by a simple small instrument called an I-Phone or a cell phone. This little machine controls the young and the old.

Yesterday I was in my office going over some legal matters with a young mother who had on her lap her grandchild that had in her left hand while the right hand was playing with the picture machine. The child was about two years old; this small human was well on their way to have the disease of Attention Deficit Disorder. This child will most likely have  the following serious problems:

• Logic will come from the Internet,
• Commands will be given which it will have to obey,
• Mathematics will not be taught,
• Disease will be observed of the person holding the machine,
• Whereabouts will be quickly known, and
• Government will play God.

This is only a small example of our childrens’ lives.

The next time you are in a crowd such as an airport, church, ball game, political rally, or a school assembly look for the disease among the children adults and any on lookers. The disease is in all places.

Generally, what is on the screen only increases the probability what is being seen is without reason or logic or foolish.

Maybe the legislatures of the various states are on the right path when laws are enacted not to drive while testing, using the phones and on the use of any digital device. This procedure will destroy lives if it is not controlled. The plague has gotten into our blood stream. Mentally and the result is the pathology will be destructive both, physically, mentally and spiritually.

At least,  think about what might happen as more and more people are alive and  this ailment is upon us. The Black Plague killed from 25% to 35% of the population of Europe. This disease could have the same result in the same context.

Yes, you doubt what I am stating!  This disease will have unique properties that will be used by evil people to bring about horrible results. Stupid people will scoff at what has been written thus far.

 

DO YOU HAVE ATTENTION DISORDER?

If you do then discipline yourself to rid your mind, body, and soul. Jesus had some interesting remarks what will happen before he comes again in Mark 13:9,10.

“But take heed to yourselves: for
They shall deliver you up to councils;
And in the synagogues ye shall be
Beaten: and ye shall be brought before
Rulers and kings for my sake,
For a testimony against them.
And the gospel must first be
Published among all nations.”

What has been told as evil could also be a positive fact we know the following event will be told until the end of time since Matthew 26:13, reads this way:

“Verily I say unto you, wheresoever
This gospel shall be preached
In the whole world, there shall also
This, that this woman hath done, be
Told for a memorial of her.”

 

All the world must be given the opportunity to hear the Gospel since He is the Good News.

 

TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY 

There were men who took this message seriously. Thomas Campbell said there had to be a unity. His son Alexander Campbell said there is but one book and it is in the Bible. One man by the name of Walter Scott in that time period immersed others in his lifetime. Now get ready for this in the geographic area of Kentucky, Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana he immersed 32,000 people from what we know. That is right 32,000 people. He set out bring the Son of God to the masses. We are under a direct command to do this when Matthew 28:19,20, is read:

“Go ye therefore, and teach all
Nations, baptizing them in the name
Of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all
Things whatsoever I have commanded
You: and lo, I am with you
Always, even unto the end of the
World. Amen.”

 

RAID THIS DISEASE

In the past, England has produced some great sea fighters and it has won tremendous sea victories. One such sea fight was the victory of Nelson over the French fleet at the naval fight at Trafalgar. Even though Lord Nelson had planned the ship’s maneuvers before the engagement, he supposedly made the following statement to his officers. “England expects every man to do his duty.” Lord Nelson was shot by a sniper from an enemy ship. He was put in a cask of rum and sent back to England.

The modern church is clogged up with those who are diseased with Attention Deficit Disorder. Maybe it is time for you to get up off your a**.  The last sentence which was written expresses the feelings of this author. The is the reason why the:

• Disciples of Christ,
• Methodist,
• Presbyterian,
• Baptist,
• Roman Catholic,
• Episcopal, and
• Others are losers is simple.

 

They had lost their core values to the social gospel. In the core of purity the groups adopt adultery, fornicators, homosexuals, transgenders, liars and thieves. The United States is undergoing a watered-down version of Christianity. The church today entertains rather than teaches the fundamental concepts of New Testament beliefs.

 

PRACTICAL IDEAS

Paul had the rare mental clarity of thinking he could give instructions how to act as a follower of Jesus Christ. In Ephesians 6:1-3, he gave a direct command to the children:

“Children, obey your parents in
The Lord: for this is right.
Honour thy father and mother;
(which is the first commandment
With promise;)
That it may be well with thee,
And thou mayest live long on the
Earth.”

It was here that he told the children that a special blessing would be given to the young. The conflict between parents and their offspring would be of mental blessing. In other words peace in their surroundings. Then a second gift was to be given. it was long life. This passage is a direct quote from Exodus 20:12.

“Honour thy father and thy
Mother: that thy days may be long
Upon the land which the Lord
Thy God giveth thee.”

 

The father also has set out for them how their conduct was to be toward the children.
In our culture today it is common for the father not to have much to do with the children. This is wrong!

 

In the time of Paul slavery and selling oneself to pay a debt was common. There was no middle class, because real estate and chattels were owned by only a small number of people. This attitude had to be that of commitment to a task set out.

Again Paul said this was a two edge sword. The master must treat the servants and slaves in a way that pleased God. As told to us now in Ephesians 6:5-9.

“Servants, be obedient to them
That are your masters, according to
The flesh, with fear and trembling, in
Singleness of your heart, as unto
Christ;
Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers
But as the servants of
Christ, doing the will of God from
The heart;
With good will doing service, as
To the Lord, and not to men:
Knowing that whasoever good
Thing any man doeth, the same shall
He receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
And, ye masters, do the same
Things unto them, forbearing threathnings:
Knowing that your master
Also is in heaven : neither is there
Respect of persons with him.”
T

he title of this blog is Attention Deficit Disorder. There is no need or reason to forget your obligations of one person to another. When we only use the digital machines –  this takes us away from touching the lives of others in a personal way.

 

Electronics cannot and will not replace another human. It is a basic human need to be “Touched” both physically and emotionally.

 

God never places one human being as superior to others. In fact, we are all part of his creation. Think about this:

• Did you select your parents?
• Did you choose your birth place?
• Did you ask to be born or your birth date?
• Did you create your mental powers?, and
• Did you know why you were born?

 

The answers to each one of these questions is no! We must understand in the beginning we were never superior. Your ability to find out who you are is not through some digital device. Pay close attention who you are now.

Most people are confused about what is happening to them. The emphasis is always on the worldly events. Jesus said, NO –  it is not in Luke 22:53.

“When I was daily with you in
The temple, ye stretched forth no
Hands against me: but this is your
Hour, and the power of darkness.”

From this passage we learn that evil is given by people with power and prestige. Look at the evil that the former man in the White House. This muslim-leaning socialist loud-mouth Obama liar,  certainly did not have the best interests of the United States in mind throughout his presidency.

Then Paul states who our actual enemy was and is and will be in the future. The key verse is Ephesians 6:12.

“For we wrestle not against
Flesh and blood, but against
Principalities, against powers, against the
Rulers of the darkness of this world,
Against spiritual wickedness in high
Places.”

Then we can ask ourselves who carries out the instruction of the unseen power. It is the Supreme Court justice who does not allow the Bible to be taught in the public schools. It is either the Democratic and or the Republican parties when they support homosexuality or any permitted concept contrary to the Bible. It is any group or individual who does not support the teaching of the Lord God.

ALL of the above entities want you and I to be infected with Attention Deficit Disorder.

 

CONCLUSION

You could keep these four points in mind to help rid yourself of Attention Deficit Disorder:

1. Pull back from digital use
2. Keep the instruction as to children
3. Observe the conduct of those who are less that you economically and
4. Know your enemy.

 

KEEP THE FAITH!

 

 

YIELD NOT TO TEMPTAION

“Yield not to temptation, for yielding is sin;
Each vict’ry will help you some other to win;
Fight manfully onward, dark passions subdue;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

 

[Refrain]

Ask the Savior to help you,
Comfort, strengthen, and keep you;
He is willing to aid you,
He will carry you through.

Shun evil companions, bad language disdain,
God’s name hold in rev’rence, nor take it in vain;
Be thoughtful and earnest, kindhearted and true;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.

To him that o’ercometh, God giveth a crown,
Through faith we will conquer, though often cast down;
He who is our Savior, our strength will renew;
Look ever to Jesus, He’ll carry you through.”
