Computer babble

Computers have come a long way–but there are still plenty of problems.

My husband Ben made a website for me.  He’s got skills I don’t have in my daydreams.  He can do that crazy coding stuff where strange combinations of symbols make the computer do things.  I don’t really get it.  One time I thought about it, and I realized it changes not only the pixels, but the stuff that makes the pages move around.  It’s too complex for me.  Anyway, Ben made a website for me.

It’s amazing to me that Ben typed stuff in the computer and now there are buttons I can press that actually work, and I can not only upload blogs and photos, but also change the font, link to sources, and preview the website–did I mention I don’t understand how this works?

But there is something I do understand.  My computer doesn’t like his computer.

Yes, my computer doesn’t like his computer.

If his computer speaks repsoifad092 language, mine must speak wzasdou817 language.  Things that work on the program when it’s on his computer don’t work when they’re on my computer.

And so we’re sorta at an impasse with me posting things for the website until we get it figured out.  I’m going to send him this post via email, because that part of talking to his computer works, and then his repsoifad092 can publish it on the website editor that my wzasdou817 doesn’t understand.

I’m so delighted that God is not in the business of speaking different means of salvation to us.  Can you imagine how confusing it would be if salvation were a code, and we had to decipher it personally, and it meant something different for everyone?

But God’s Word isn’t like that.  John 3:16 means the same thing for everyone, whether you were born in 1969 or 1999, whether you like cream in your coffee or not, whether you wear brown shoes or black, and whether everybody knows your sins or you’ve kept them pretty hidden.

John 3:16 is the salvation language for everyone.  And that’s that.

I love how perfectly simple the Gospel is.

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NLT)
