It is widely thought that Muhammad Ali was not only one of the most important human beings of the 20th century but one of the most important men in the history of all humanity.
Very good guy Ali. Nothing against him. Take our hats off to him.
In today’s divided times it is surprising people don’t look back to Ali more than ever.
Since the last two years’ world situation today’s times maybe the most divided since that ‘Austrian-born’ German clown tried to wipe out the Jewish people sparking World War II. Something not long ago after all. No wonder another considerable man of 20th century humanity — Albert Einstein — a ‘German-born’ man of Jewish descent — never thought of Germany as his home. Or where he was from and left Germany for Switzerland. Eventually settling in the land of opportunity in America and with his wife around the great people of New Jersey. Not surprising his under appreciated theories from some European clowns in the early days went unnoticed until America got involved. Before he died he donated some money to Jerusalem. You’d suspect America knew what time it was with the insufferable politicians he despised from Germany before he left. Those same that sparked World War II in the first place.
Going back to Muhammad Ali.
Another great man of the 20th century.
Ali brought together people through boxing which he just used boxing as some sort of vehicle. Maybe. We guess.
Much more than just a fighter Ali. Surely.
An individual who specialized in the unusual.
In the miraculous:
One of the great quotes Ali said one time was regarding his faith in God:
“I talk to God everyday.”
No one knows the day or the hour the world will come to its final destruction and ultimate conclusion. Maybe tomorrow. Maybe 50, 60 or 70 years. Who the heck knows. We’re no bloody Einstein’s.
But one thing the son of God Jesus Christ said one time sticks out pertaining to the above from Ali.
In that towards the end times false prophets would come and try to twist the gospel and words of God.
To that effect Jesus Christ was surely big on having a personal relationship with him. Not about religions, priests, pastors, the Pope, the church (its modern interpretation of the word in the last few hundred years), politicians, far right or far left (whatever the heck they are or they mean), misguided declining universities and institutions, professors, literature doctors, goofy psychologists, or anything else. We don’t know nothing though. Some morons here like anyone else.
Maybe it more was about talking to him Jesus Christ personally one to one every day and about his basic instructions before leaving Earth (Bible) — as best you can — we’re all imperfect at times. Surely. And to never be deceived and to seek the holy spirit and spirit of discernment. No one knows it all. Each to their own.
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.”
As in the end we are all on our own when it comes to the only judge of the world when it is your last breath here on Earth.
That’s God of course. Or whatever your beliefs are.
Don’t be angry or bitter at fellow humans though. Just people. Not their fault. 90% of the world are just lost. Feel sorry for them instead. Just two arms two legs. Harmless.
All us mere mortals are all insignificant in the big picture. A lot to be thankful to God for in the end.
Demons are unseen spirits that can take hold of people temporarily surely. Just have sympathy, compassion and empathy for them. Peace and love the answer surely.
Let God do the fighting. God removes enemies of God all the time anyway and unfortunately all enemies of God will surely meet the same fate in the end.
We’re idiots though. No one knows it all except God. Who knows.
With Thanksgiving Day today a lot to be thankful for if healthy and a roof over your head.
Each to their own.
As for Ali big respect.
Champion inside the ring and champion outside of it.
Rest in peace Muhammad Ali:
