## The Beauty of Mathematics and the Love of God!

I got this from a friend at work. I love this because I stand firmly on the rules of Math and Physics as proof that there is a Creator. You don't get this kind of order from random chance.

The Beauty of Mathematics and the Love of God!

This is TOO cool!
Just the math part is good enough, the end is even better.
I bet you will NOT be able to read it without sending it on to at least one other person!

Beauty of Mathematics!!!!!!!

1 x 8 + 1 = 9
12 x 8 + 2 = 98
123 x 8 + 3 = 987
1234 x 8 + 4 = 9876
12345 x 8 + 5 = 98765
123456 x 8 + 6 = 987654
1234567 x 8 + 7 = 9876543
12345678 x 8 + 8 = 98765432
123456789 x 8 + 9 = 987654321

1 x 9 + 2 = 11
12 x 9 + 3 = 111
123 x 9 + 4 = 1111
1234 x 9 + 5 = 11111
12345 x 9 + 6 = 111111
123456 x 9 + 7 = 1111111
1234567 x 9 + 8 = 11111111
12345678 x 9 + 9 = 111111111
123456789 x 9 +10 = 1111111111

9 x 9 + 7 = 88
98 x 9 + 6 = 888
987 x 9 + 5 = 8888
9876 x 9 + 4 = 88888
98765 x 9 + 3 = 888888
987654 x 9 + 2 = 8888888
9876543 x 9 + 1 = 88888888
98765432 x 9 + 0 = 888888888

Brilliant, isn't it?

And look at this symmetry:

1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111 = 12345678987654321

Mind Boggling...

Now, take a look at this...

101%

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:  What Equals 100%?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?

We have all been in situations where someone wants you to GIVE OVER 100%...

What equals 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help answer these questions:

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O- R- K =

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And:

K-N-O-W-L-E- D-G-E =

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%

But:

A-T-T-I-T-U- D-E =

1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

THEN, look how far the love of God will take you:

L-O-V-E-O-F- G-O-D
12+15+22+5+15+ 6+7+15+4 = 101%

Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, It's theLove of God that will put you over the top!

If you find this interesting share it with your friends & loved ones.
Have a nice day & God Bless You

## Monday Men's Meme Feb 9, 2010

Yeah, I know...it's already next week.

Here's the question that was posed:

Would you ever vote for a woman president?
Of course you all know where I'm going with this. Sarah Palin has been in the news of late, and last go around, Hillary Clinton was in almost till the end. I'm interested in hearing your take. Do you think it's OK? Do you think a women in authority is unBiblical? Or, are you just a male chauvinist and would never vote for a female president?

I would vote for a woman president. I don't think there's anything wrong or unbiblical about a woman being president. In 1 Tim.2:12 Paul talks about women usurping authority over men. That is with regard to public Bible teaching. I read comments from Robertson, Wesley and Henry and they seem to be in agreement.

If the right person came along, I would vote for her. I am not a party voter or anything like that. I try to vote for the person who holds similar values to my own. That's really hard to find and I think we are often disappointed by politicians. Even if they mean what they say when they say it, the things that a person wants to do in government often doesn't have the ability to finish. There are too many favors, too many behind the scenes dealings. We have also, as a nation, begun voting against a candidate. The whole thing is really disturbing.

I pray that the Lord will raise up a candidate that is committed and realistic about the things this country needs. Man, woman, whatever. We need a Godly leader who is not afraid to stand up for what is right and for what made this nation great in the first place.

## Monday Men's meme - Is Homosexuality wrong

Yeah, this is a real hot topic. Not just because it was brought up on blogfrog either. The short answer is that it is wrong. Why? Because God says so in His Word. Lev 18:22, Rom 1:27, 1 Tim 1:10.

The long answer only exists because not everyone wants to admit that God gets to make the rules. He is the creator of the universe and therefore gets to make the rules. I have not seen real evidence that He didn't create the universe. Big Bang, Evolution? No, sorry. Too much about those things simply doesn't work. The rate of expansion of the universe is increasing...shouldn't it be slowing down? Plants evolved to use photosynthesis? If any one step in that process doesn't work or happen in the proper sequence, the whole thing fails. I'm no scientist, so don't ask me ins and outs on this stuff. However, I am a Mechanical Engineer so order and rules are important to me. When you look at the laws of Physics and Math, could you really conclude that it was luck that things happened that way? I mean, the stars and planets move in a mathematically predictable manner. Billions of stars moving through space with that sort of order came from an explosion? Nonsense. Does anyone subscribe to the big bang theory any more? It makes for a somewhat amusing sit-com, but not an explanation for the universe.

From reading a bunch of the comments on blogfrog regarding this topic, the sentiment is if you say someone is wrong, you must not like them or you think you are superior or you're just mean. That simply stems from pride. You don't agree with me, that hurts my feelings because I didn't get the response I wanted and thought I deserved, so I'm mad and it's your fault. Of course, that line of reasoning assumes that nothing offensive was actually said. There certainly are those who are downright mean and self-righteous toward those who are "sinners". Those are some terribly immature, insecure people and I really wish they would stop calling themselves Christian. They don't represent Christ. He never turned people away who came to Him repentant and believing in Him. He loved people where they were at and simply encouraged them to get their lives right...no matter what the sin was.

I've written before that I think pointing out sin in another Christian's life, which it is our job to do as Christians, is extremely difficult to do well. I don't do it well. Our society doesn't encourage it either. I've had some difficult times and done some dumb things that I had to apologize for. Even that was hard to pull off. It was actually harder on the person I was apologizing to than it was on me. The person didn't seem to know what to make of it. Between men especially, there seems to be an attitude of ignore it for a while and it'll go away. Go to our separate corners and cool off. Well, that doesn't work And it's not Biblical either. We need to be able to be honest with each other in a LOVING way. That's the hard part.

What to do when the person isn't a Christian? Do we have the same responsibility? Our responsibility to the unsaved is to lead them to Christ. Sometimes with words, more often with actions. I have a gay relative. Do I shun this person? Definitely not! We have a good time at family events. We don't see each other but once or twice a year because I don't get home much. But when I and my family do go back, we all try to get together and there isn't an issue. My wife and I just try to be an example of Christ in any way can. Not a big act either. I don't try to squeeze a bible verse into every other sentence or whip out my bible and say "Look what I read this morning." These people know me. They all know where I stand on the issue of homosexuality. I don't make excuses or apologies for it either. What allows us to be in the same room is a respect for each other. I will defend my faith when needed, but I am not going to pick a fight either. It is God who draws us to Him not me pushing someone to Him.

Ok, so that's a lot of words...I do tend to ramble sometimes. In a nutshell, Jesus said there are only 2 commandments: 1) Love God most of all, 2) Love others as you do yourself (my translation). Love doesn't necessarily mean acceptance of all behavior but it means a recognition that no one is worse than I was when Christ died for me. All have sinned and come short of the Glory of God (Rom 3:23).
