“…a back-up camera would be like rewinding historical fact, and getting a second chance to “correct” our errors….”

Back-up Camera:  If only I could see the effect of what I’ve done… before I did it.  Wouldn’t that be something great…?  If we had that special skill set, or gift, to know the exact effect of our actions, then we mightn’t do it.  But… we don’t really need a “back-up camera” if we do everything “just right.”  What, then, is just right?  Does that mean everything is PERFECTLY done?  That’s what it means, but it’s just not possible to get everything right, without error…. Every time.  Because we humans are “not perfect,” we therefore are subject to making mistakes, and sometimes… very big mistakes.  So, then, a back-up camera would be like rewinding historical fact, and getting a second chance to “correct” our errors.  It’s just not possible.  But, there is a process by which we humans can reduce the error factor(s) significantly, such that, we can make better choices in life…..choices that could enhance our own lives, and that of others.  It’s called….obeying the commandments of God.  Here’s a fact… if we follow the commandments of God, then, the very by-product of that action is that we will make better business decisions, better family decisions, and better social decisions.  Thus, the need for a “back-up camera” would be rendered useless.  It is a lesson that could, if followed, change the entire direction of the world.  None of us are capable of following the 10 Commandments to the “t,” but we can all try.  That is all the God expects from us….to try…and try HARD.  To be CONVERTED; to Change, to confess, to repent, and to accept and believe in Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior.  That would be all the “back-up camera” that we would ever need.  Romans 10:9But what does it say? “THE WORD IS NEAR YOU, IN YOUR MOUTH AND IN YOUR HEART “– that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.……Blessings… cjlb…6/9/14
