The Saint vs The Dog
What determines the mind of men and women who say they know truth compared to those people who do not? When we look at the animal world none of those are as intelligent as humans; although we can think so do animals in a way, not with reasoning but with instinct; so that we see some animals can be trained and most certainly so can we. If I have patience, I can teach my dog to sit or salute, or even go to the door when he has to potty, but I cannot teach my dog to read, write or pray. Why? I cannot not teach him to do those things because his mind is not made that way. This is what makes me different from the animal, and I also see that my dog has not the capability to do any other thing outside of what he can do, so if I tell the dog, sit here and mate only with this dog I chose for you then the dog cannot comprehend that and as soon as he gets a whiff of another female in heat he will leave the dog I chose to go after the other one; no matter where she is, his nature tells him she’s the one. He can’t resist.
How can the saints of Yahweh distinguish themselves from the animals? It is our in dwelling ability to reason. In us is the ability to be monogamous; however, we are no better than the animal when we have not the ability to stop and think before we act. I use the saint vs the dog because, the saints are called to live by the commandments of Yahweh, however, it is impossible to do so without help. In this we see that the saints although some well intentioned cannot follow the commandments without training. Therefore, if the word says do not commit adultery and we say that we love our mates; what makes someone go out and do it? We find out, then, it is the thought, the mind which is weak. There is nothing in us to help us fight…we have the instinct to mate however we also see that we can be just as the dogs if we have not be trained or if we don’t use what we know. The dogs have not the ability to reason like the saint, and do what they are made to do, that is be dogs.
Our dogs have to be trained to be obedient. Once I hung some clothes out on the line and they had a field day, because they had no concept that these clothes were not toys but something to be worn, hence, they pulled and tugged and clothes ended up on the ground torn and dirty. This is just how we are without the word, if we have no instruction to live by we just do like the animals, feet running to evil, being destructive and destroying everything in our pathway.
No one can just come to us and say, don’t do that because we won’t be able to see it as wrong. Nothing can change us, except the word of Yahweh. If we can’t get that the word is there to save us, then, we are just like the beasts of the field. Which are you? Saint or dog? Yah gives new life.
