Question by No Chance Without Jesus: Is the mind like a computer….?
capable of parsing data, executing programing and working off a preprogramed code? Incapable of performing outside the box of its parameters?

Not to age myself, but when I was in high school we used to be able to play with the main frame computers at the Stanford University Computer lab through a teletype terminal. This was fascinating early age of computers stuff, and you could play games and make programs but you had to know exactly what to tell the computer to get it to perform. You had to type in lines of code perfectly and if you made any mistakes it would spit out the message,

“Entry error: does not compute”

Well over the intervening decades computers have become easier to use, but no less frustrating, anything presented to them beyond their capabilities or parameters just gets spits out and things crash

Is this what happens when the mind alone is presented with God? I will be the first to admit that on a simple logic level, God does not really make sense. But humans and the human experience is so much more than just logic.

Even our brains are designed with only one half that concerns itself with logic.

There is another part to the human being where beauty, music, art, love, fear, hate, happiness and all the wonderful irrational, illogical things that make us human take place. This is the human heart, the human soul. Which is much grander and more able to handle the complex issues of human life. This is where God must be apprehended, this is the gateway that must be opened to receive God.

Trying to make God pass through the narrow parameters of the human brain is like trying to to program a computer using the musical score from phantom of the opera. The computer wants 0’s and 1’s and you ar trying to feed it quarter notes and treble clefts

“error entry, does not compute.”

Oh sure you can translate those notes into a compiled language the computer could understand, and with the right program it could even spit it back out as music……but in the end it has no comprehension of it, it’s all 0’s and 1’s to the computer.

So is it any wonder then when someone is so bound to only the limited ranges of the human mind, they would not be able to comprehend God and spit out “error, does not compute”?

Open your hearts people! The world, the universe, ….YOU are much bigger than you give yourself credit for, there is a loving God waiting at the door to bring you into a better place, if you will only free yourself from the narrow confines human mind.

Take a break from the 0,s and 1’s and dive into the big old chocolate sundae that is the human experience of the heart….and in doing so, you might find that God actually does “compute”

(Yes I know this could be classified as a rant, Yes, I know this could be reported. It was just on my heart to say, so I said it. I hope it helps someone before it gets deleted)
