THE  THEORY  OF  FROZEN  TIME  AS  PUT  BY  EINSTEIN  AND  MODERN  PEOPLE  LIKE  GREENE,  WHO  WOULD  LIKE  TO  TRAVEL  BACK  OR  GO  FORWARD  IN  TIME.


From  a  friend


I have a question that's not related to B-time.  The flow of time as we experience it is called the A-theory of time.  The present exists, then becomes the past as it flows into the future.  Doesn't this create a contradiction?  The present is always also the past of the future, and the future of the past.  The present, past, and future all exist at once.  This is contradictory, yet it exists.  This has created a theological problem for me.  It doesn't make sense for the universe to exist without a supernatural being creating it, yet at the same time, time, which is a natural phenomena, doesn't make sense in its existence, and yet it does exist.  The question atheists might ask me is: "If something like time can exist as a purely natural entity, while not making any sense, then why can't something as nonsensical as the universe creating itself through only natural reasons be true?"


MY  ANSWER:


Time  as  it  is  does  make  sense.  Time  is  based  on  physical  things;  we  measure  time  by  what's  happening  to  physical  things  around  us.  One  could  argue  time  did  not  exist  before  the  physical  universe  was  created.  For  us  humans  then  time  is  noticed  by  the  events  of  the  physical.  So  time  in  that  context  is  very  real.


You are taking it by seconds. So I sit here typing, my hands are this second above the keyboard, now next second fingers down on some letters, next second up again thinking. So we have three seconds. First is the present, next second is present and first second is past time. Then after second second I go to third second, the last two seconds becomes past time, and third second is present. So in seconds we have present, that becomes past, and the second after present is future. Future is coming as I hold my fingers above keyboard. So we have present, past and future happening one second or split second after each other.


Technically it is happening like that per se.  Time  is  flowing  from  present  second  to  past  second,  present  second  to  future  second,  that  becomes  the  present  second  that  becomes the past second.


But where Greene and his kind go wrong is that it is all held or frozen as he puts, it in time. They do this because they theorize if that is so, maybe one day we can figure how to go back or forward in time. They then with their freezing take it to an hour, then a day, then a week, then a month, and then years, and then forever. They probably take it that way already.


With God it does not work that way. He freezes nothing, the past is not frozen.... IT'S GONE, NEVER TO VISIT. THE FUTURE IS not frozen, IT'S NOT YET. MY TRIP TO WALES [oh yes I'm taking my parents ashes to the grave site in our home village next Sunday,  the 8th will be back on 15th] NEXT MAY 8TH IS NOT YET, I cannot visit the 8th as it is not yet, it's not future time frozen, it has not happened yet. God does not freeze past or future time, so we can somehow visit it. 


God can remember the past all of it, but He's decided even He cannot go back and visit that time.....He cannot go back to David slaying Goliath like He's frozen that event and put it on a DVD disc to play and visit anytime He wants. The future He can tell you what He will do by some event, like He told the prophets His Son would be born of a woman in Bethlehem, even gave things that would lead up to that birth, so people could know the "about year" it would come to pass as they watched for the signs leading up to it. BUT GOD HAS NOT FROZEN IT in future time, it simply is NOT YET, but it WILL COME TO BE as He has predicted.


God has decided He will FREEZE no time, once it has become the past it is past - GONE forever. The mistake I just made on a typing word is now the past, it is not frozen so I can somehow go back and see  my  mistake  or  go  back  and  re-do  it  so  I  do  not  make  that  mistake,  a  kinda altering  the  past.  JUST  CAN  NOT  DO  IT  EITHER  WAY.....LOOKING  AT  IT  OR  ALTERING  IT......IT'S  GONE  PERIOD!!!


I  CANNOT  go  into  the  future  to  see  or  alter  the  mistakes  in  typing  as  I  will  make  as  I  continue  typing  this  to  you,  so  the  mistakes  do  not  take  place, or  like  watching  them  happen  as  watching  some  DVD  future  science  fiction.


Jesus  said  NO  ONE,  not  the  angels  or  himself,  ONLY  THE  FATHER  KNOWS  THE  EXACT  TIME  JESUS  WILL  BE  SENT  BACK  TO  THIS  EARTH.  MAYBE  THE  FATHER  HAS  WILLED  HIMSELF  THAT  HE  HAS  NOT  YET  DECIDED  WHAT  HOUR  OF  WHAT  DAY  OF  WHAT  MONTH  OF  WHAT  YEAR  IT  WILL  BE.  THAT  FUTURE EVENT  IS  NOT  FROZEN  IN  TIME,  IT  HAS  NOT  YET  HAPPENED.  NO  PERSON  IN  THE  UNIVERSE  CAN  GO  FORWARD  TO  VISIT  THAT  TIME.


THE  PAST  IS  THE  PAST,  IT'S  GONE,  IT  IS  HISTORY  NEVER  TO  BE  RE-RUN  LIKE  A  DVD  AS  SOME  FROZEN  PAST  TIME,  TO  GO  BACK  AND  WATCH  IT  ALL  HAPPEN  AGAIN.  GOD  CAN  REMEMBER  EVERY  DETAIL  OF  IT,  BUT  IT  WAS  NEVER  FROZEN  IN  TIME.  THE  FUTURE  HE  CAN  PREDICT  IF  HE  WANTS  TO,  BUT  IT  HAS  NOT  HAPPENED  UNTIL  IT  HAPPENS,  WHEN  IT  HAPPENS  IT  IS  THEN  PRESENT  IN  TIME,  AFTER  IT  HAPPENS  IT  IS  PAST  TIME,  NEVER  TO  SOME  HOW  RE-VISIT  AND  PLAY  IT  ALL  OVER  AGAIN  LIKE  ON  A  FROZEN  DVD.


HISTORY  IS  "HIS  STORY"  -  MAN'S  STORY.  I'm  at  present  typing  this words to  you, what we consider "present" - when I send this to you, it goes and becomes PAST history, it's gone. The words are on a screen, they go to you, and the words printed stay, until we throw it in the trash can. BUT I CANNOT GO BACK IN TIME AND DO IT AGAIN, CHANGING THE WORDS, SAYING THINGS DIFFERENTLY.


When I type to you next Sabbath about me leaving the following day to fly over to London and then Wales, that is still in the future, I'm yet to do that. I cannot go forward in some frozen time as Greene and others teach or want to believe, and kinda looking over my shoulder and watch me doing it. That time has not yet come.


WHATEVER MIND GAMES PEOPLE LIKE  GREENE  AND  EINSTEIN  WANT TO PLAY, WANT TO THEORIZE ON,  ABOUT  TIME  BEING  FROZEN,  IN  PAST,  PRESENT,  AND  FURURE,  IS  ALL  HOGWASH  GOOBIDY-GOO........ GOD  DOES  NOT  LIVE,  HE'S  DECIDED  NOT  TO  LIVE,  IN  SOME  ETERNITY  OF  FROZEN  TIME  EVENTS.


MEN  WOULD  LOVE  TO  GO  BACK  AND  LIVE  IN  SOME  PAST  AGE,  OR  GO  FORWARD  AND  LIVE  IN  THE  FUTURE  TIME.....THEY  MAKE  MOVIES ABOUT  IT..... ONE  I  HAVE  IS  CALLED  "THE  TIME  MACHINE"  -  IT  MAKES  FOR  GOOD  SCIENCE  FICTION,  BUT  THEY  HAVE  IT  RIGHT  WHEN  THEY  SAY  "FICTION"  FOR  THAT  IS  WHAT  IT  IS.  GOD  DOES  NOT  MAKE  TIME  TRAVEL  SCIENCE  FICTION  LIFE.  HE  LIVES  FOR  ETERNITY,  BUT  THE  PAST  IS  GONE,  THE  FUTURE  IS  NOT  YET.  THAT  IS  THE  WAY  GOD  HAS  DECIDED  TO  DO  IT......MEN  WHO  REASON  OTHERWISE,  DO  SO  OUT  OF  THEIR  OWN  BRAIN  AND  MIND,  NOT  THE  MIND  OF GOD.


JESUS  DIED  ONCE  FOR  MANKIND,  HE  REMEMBERS  IT  WELL,  BUT  IT  IS  NOT  FROZEN  IN  TIME  SO  WE  CAN  ENTERTAIN  OURSELVES  DURING  ETERNITY  BY  PLAYING  IT  OVER  AND  OVER  AGAIN,  OR  PUTTING  OURSELVES  IN  IT  AS  WE  GO  BACK  AND  REVISIT  THE  PAST.  AS  PAUL  ONCE  SAID,  ABOUT  IT,  IN  A  DIFFERENT  CONTEXT...."YOU  CRUCIFY  CHRIST  AGAIN  OR  ANEW."  THAT  HORRIBLE  BUT  WONDERFUL [FOR OUR SALVATION]  EVENT  IS  REMEMBERED, AND  WHAT  IS  WRITTEN  ABOUT  IT,  WE  CAN  PUT  IT  IN  OUR  MINDS-EYE,  BUT  THE  LITERAL  EVENT  IS  GONE,  IT  IS  HISTORY,  NEVER  FROZEN,  NEVER  TO  SEE  IT  HAPPEN  AGAIN.  


THANK  GOD.  


SOME  GOOD  THINGS  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  IN  HISTORY,  BUT  WOW...... THE  EVIL,  GHASTLY,  HORRIBLE,  PERVERSE,  DEMONIC  THINGS  ARE  .... TOO .... WELL  WORDS  FAIL  ME...... THANK  GOODNESS  TIME  IS  NOT  FROZEN,  SO  THESE  THINGS  STAY  FOR  ETERNITY,  TO  BE  VISITED..... WHAT  SICK  MIND  WOULD  WANT  TO  VISIT  THEM  ANYWAY.


MEN  LIKE  GREENE  AND  EINSTEIN  AND  OTHERS  LIKE  THEM.  WERE  NEVER  PART  OF  THE  SPIRIT  FILLED  CHILDREN  OF GOD.   THEY  RAMBLE  ALONG  IN  THEIR  THEORIES  AND  POSTULATING  IDEAS,  IN  DARKNESS  TO  GOD'S  WORD  AND  THE  LIGHT  OF  TRUTH,  AND  THE  WAYS  OF  THE  LORD...... MAKING  THEMSELVES  TO  BE  WISE,  THEY  BECOME  FOOLS.
