Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


The term, ignorant means that we are not aware of something, and should not be seen as an insult,  right off the bat.   I consider myself well educated in many areas, yet still "ignorant" in many more.  No big deal.  It just translates to how we are raised, encouraged, educated, rich or poor, etc., and what we are willing to do.   And, the HUMBLE man has a great advantage in that he has the 'right stuff' to learn from a learned man, and God Himself !   Paul so instructed Timothy, in the Bible,  "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.  That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."  ---2nd Timothy 3:16.     So, therefore, as  far as finding out the 'mind of God' and doing His Will, we don't have to look, or read any other place but the KJV Bible !!  Don't you just love things that are simple and uncomplicated ?  I do !   And too, we all learn the truth of the Bible at different stages in our life, and so it would be  wrong for any of us to think that we are 'one-up' on some one new just learning the Gospel.  We all ought to have the basics in bible knowledge, but just being "Saved" is the most important part, IMHO.  

Some good folks think that just following the 10 Commandments are all a person needs to do as a Saved Christian.   But the fact is that such a person probably has never studied the Bible ---making an erroneous statement like that, because the "OLD Mosaic Law Covenant is NOT binding on Christians !! !!  Jesus, Himself, changed all of that when He died on the cross for all of mankind, once and for all.  Jesus instituted the "New Testament/ Law" which is that we must love the Lord God with all our strength, power and vital force, and also love our neighbor as ourselves.   I didn't know and understand all these things from the get-go either, friends, but while  there is still breath in me, I will share these things will everyone I meet, God willing.    Too,  the Bible, and God's Laws supersede/ change,   any other human laws or decrees.  PERIOD.   And not everyone can, or should be teachers,  because there is a lot of serious weight on that job, and we must get things right!   When I was a kid who made mistakes in my speech and beliefs, and humiliated by someone older who knew a little more than me,  I didn't just quit.   I doubled down hard and studied twice as hard so as not to make the same mistake twice.   So that now at my present age,  I feel comfortable talking about certain subjects.   And when I hear someone else speaking about something I do not know --- I shut up and listen to him, and if I am interested in his speech, I do more research on that subject until I figure I know enough on that subject.

But we can't possible know everything while we are on Earth, so we must pick and choose what has the highest priority.  To me, heaven and hell seem very worthy of my time and effort, and since we all may die sometime....  IF the Rapture doesn't come in our time.    So then, I NEED TO KNOW THE ABSOLUTE  TRUTH of the matter, of where we [I] am going after I die.   After all,  Jesus said, 'what does it profit a man to win the whole world [or riches], and then lose his very soul ?'     I am happy to enjoy a good standard of living now,  but I well know just how mortal I am today !!   I have had too many close calls on my life, and doctors/ surgeons have told me just how 'lucky' I was to still live.   I broke way too many bones in my body, including my neck in 1997,so that my two years in Vietnam: 68-70, seemed like a 'walk in the park !!'    And I won't soon forget all the pain and agony, also heart break and tears of losing those very close to me.

Many kind people have emailed me to say that they really enjoyed reading and sharing my humble blog posts.   Thank you very much, guys and gals !   I only want to share the good things I have, that took me so long to learn, and Feb. 20th I will be age 65 !!   I am hoping to buy some more Life Insurance, in case I die too soon, so that my wife can continue to live and survive in good manner.    But God will take care of her, someway, somehow.... I just want her to be OK, and relatively happy.   I tried to teach her how to invest, etc., and take care of herself, since we've been married.

I would be happy to help or share more Bible stuff with anyone who is serious about learning.  Learn to use the COMMENTS area.   And I know that my pastor would help out too.

Warm Regards,
Tom Schuckman

I am truly amazed at the unconditional love that our Father bestows on each and every one of us. At the same time, my heart hurts for those who have shut God out of their lives and who have rejected the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

When He went to the cross, he suffered so much for each of us. I don't know about you, but I cannot watch a movie where He is being nailed to the cross. I love Him for what He did, but I hurt for Him at the same time.

Thank you for you blogs and for your knowledge of our Savior and I appreciate your faith and joy in serving Him.

There is one thing I don't understand and perhaps the day will come when Jesus will open the mystery to me; My intense love for Israel and the Jewish people. I love Israel so much and I pray for the Peace of Jerusalem and for the Jewish people and for Israel. I will defend Israel and the Jews till my dying day. I cannot express the love I have, except I know that love comes from the Holy Spirit. He has really heaped that love on me.

Have a wonderful Blessed day and may The Most Holy God of Israel Bless you and yours each day of the rest of this year.

Your sister in Christ Jesus
