My laptop dictionary describes a dichotomy  as a ‘division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different’.   According to the Holy Bible, the dichotomies of life deal with man’s struggle in choosing between GOOD and EVIL.  For Bible believers, the existence of GOOD is attributed to GOD, and the presence of EVIL in the world, to Satan.  Almighty God in Heaven is the source of all that is GOOD, and Satan, formerly Lucifer who was cast out of heaven, aka as the Devil, is the source of all evil.  In John 10:10, Jesus says:

 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Some dichotomies are:

Love-hate, life-death, war-peace, heaven-hell, narrow way-broad way; salvation-damnation; male-female; believer-unbeliever, true believer-false believer; wise-foolish,  rich man-beggar; profitable-unprofitable servant;wheat-tares; good and faithful- wicked and slothful; holy-unholy, moral-immoral, etc.  Jesus used dichotomies in His parables’ teachings.    There are some listed in this link from my eBook.  (See TAB BAR- SHOFAR EBOOK)

Simply speaking, the Bible is about GOOD and EVIL.   There is GOOD and there is EVIL in all of our life’s challenges and choices.   There is GOD who is our ADVOCATE and HELPER to do GOOD.   AND there exists a formidable ADVERSARY or ENEMY of  GOD  who is EVIL- SATAN, THE DEVIL who seeks our downfall. 

Both God and Satan are contending for the souls of man.  God has a GOOD PLAN for us, but Satan is up to NO GOOD.

We can see from G-O-O-D = G-O-D 

and from the word  E-V-I-L  =  D-E-V-I-L, DEVIL aka as SATAN.

BLOG UPDATES- Facebook Group, eBook, ABOUT Page

It’s been 3 years since I started blogging on ‘God’s Enduring Love’.  I had no idea what to expect when my son, a non-blogger at that time, told me to ‘try Word Press.   Their support team was there for me and also a couple of new friends soon stepped in and offered their help to a novice blogger.

FACEBOOK and eBOOK–  The impetus for my blog site began when I was moderator for a Facebook group in 2011 that later became the Sounding the Shofar group.  For 2 months in the latter part of 2011 I was very ill with the worst sinus infection imaginable, and it was during this time that I collated my notes and started writing an eBook, Sounding the Shofar- Exhortations for the End Times’.   I had to have help publishing it since I couldn’t make heads or tails out of the self publishing guides.  A fine company, Trafford Publishing, came to my rescue by offering a special at that time and by the end of 2011, they helped publish the final draft of my book.  Copies were made of my eBook and given to pastor friends in the Philippines on our last mission trip.  Since then I have declined Trafford’s repeated offers to help me market my eBook, explaining to them that I had intended all along to ‘give it away free’.  The Bible says,  ‘Freely you have received, freely give’ (Mt 10:8).

About My Blog– ‘God’s Enduring Love’ was actually started as a ‘trial run’ on May 26, 2012 for ‘learning how to set up a blog site’ and then get Drgold’s blog  going.  You see, he is the Bible teacher in our household who needed to start a blog to share his many Bible lessons and articles of current interest that he tirelessly works on.  I just tried to light a fire under him.  If I learned how to blog, I would get his started for him which I did a month later in June 2012.  Since our 3rd Word Press anniversary Drgold is going great guns with over 20,000 views than me.  Besides Bible studies, there is a lot of interest in his research on current events in the nation and the world.   Perhaps I should faze out my blog and let Drgold do all the writing from now for both of us.  Well, I haven’t figured out how to do it.   Stop blogging I mean, and then I could continue on with my BB life ‘before blogging life’ with my other interests and pursuits.  But if I do,  I will surely miss the company of all the friends I’ve made all over the world!

‘ABOUT’ page updated– Anyway, at this time I have updated my ‘ABOUT’ which I invite newcomers, especially, to read:
