What if…and unrequited love.

In the line of Matthew 18:8 and 9 below

Mat 18:8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to offend, cut them off and throw them from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.
Mat 18:9 And if your eye offends you, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into the hell of fire.

…So what if your head causes you to sin….?

(Please give me your answers…no not a sermon about scriptural context, I want your answer).

And then to unrequited love.

Roy Cleveland Sullivan (February 7, 1912 – September 28, 1983 was a U.S. park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia Sullivan was hit by lightning on seven different occasions and survived all of them In his lifetime he gained “Human Lightning Conductor” as a nickname.On September 28, 1983, Sullivan died at age 71, by committing suicide, reportedly distraught over an unrequited love.(Wikipedia)

Doesn’t love suck?

Nice week, God bless.

  1. Well... dude. You could always go by the word and cut the thing off.

    But let's see, how exactly would your head cause you to sin?

    Besides, if you consider that ultimately, all your thoughts, actions, decisions etc are made up in your mind, which is in your head, perhaps you should just cut it off anyways. Ooh I think I just went meta.

    Just adding my two cents to this otherwise invigorating discussion.

  2. cut it off, better to go to heaven without a head than to go and burn in hell with it...but wait, wouldn't that be committing suicide, eh?

  3. I'd always thought that scripture shd be taken metaphorically...but you raise one of those 'what happens if an unstoppable force meets and immovable object?'qns...Not sure, really

  4. slightly similar to King's, When you say your head is causing you to sin: the question is how? or wat do u mean? Is it your mind? If so what have you been feeding it?
    And love doesn't suck pips!! It's when we fix ourselves to love the people who arn't meant for us that it will go down South.

  5. Sleek, by using "...that scripture..." did you mean to say that the particular scripture in question shdould be taken metaphorically or that entire scripture should be taken metaphorically?

    TRP has mob faith in love...but look at the dear man nawe...seven electrocutions survived but then a girl to finish off the job with rejection....oh.

  6. If your head causes you to sin,i bet the best thing you wanna do is to have it pulled off..

    but how do you live your life with a no-head..isnt that multiple jeopardy?

    So my logical conclusion would be that you take it to the master healer to have it examined and perhaps heal it of its iniquity...kinda tough question isnt it?..

  7. Nev where will u ans UgGal @?

    Oba u bury ur head in sand for a bit....coz if u do wat u r supposed to do u'll ve done wat The Emrys said.

    Love makes the ride worthwhile.... ask B2B and the Mrs

  8. 🙂
    (In the words of Steve)
    Did i say that?
    Soooooooo Who did you say you were in love with???

  9. UgGal, Apr9 and TRP, when I said love sucks I was being empathetic for ma late homie,US Park ranger Roy Cleveland. You have got to see the irony in his story ladies...after surviving 7 lightning strikes, he strikes himself out coz of a woe-man's unrequited love.

    So please don't ask who I am in love with, was simply being sorry for the late homie.
