They went ahead and did it

I have been quiet as of late, and miss you all. I see they have finally forced the new block editor and there is no longer a way to get a round it. I had made a post showing how we could still use the old editor by going to the WP Admin page but I see that is no longer an option. You can go there but when you hit “new post” it brings you right to the new block thingy.

I never understand why people want to improve things. It’s like God’s word. Let’s progress it to the point where it looks nothing like it did. Let’s make it more user friendly until it is completely different.

We’ll make it better.

Like the block editor is great for some people. They love it. This new version is what they were looking for but in reality it is just another way that people change something to be the way they want it. And you will accept it, use it. You won’t have an option. As the time goes by no one will even remember the classic editor.

People who never knew the difference are fine. The people who new the old ways say, wait this isn’t anything like it was. It isn’t even close.

It is completely different.

I feel that is how the world works today. People would rather be told what the Good book says rather than pick it up and read it for themselves. Happily digesting, accepting, and following what they are told. Especially if it feels good. No one wants to hear that their free will can cause an eternity of damnation. That doesn’t sound like fun. So, let’s omit that. Yes, of course omit that. It is so much nicer that we can all do whatever we want because well God loves us no matter what, right? He gave us His only begotten Son. Jesus is our get out of hell free card.

That will get me into the glorious gates of heaven. I am forgiven. Every one else is doing it. Every one else believes the way I do so it is the popular consensus, and therefor the rule.

Who needs the Old Testament? That was for way back then. But Psalms is ok, and Proverbs. Let’s not forget Job, and Jonah to name a few. Those are acceptable. Yes, yes books like that in the Old Testament are ok. They make me feel good. Leviticus, Deuteronomy, Judges, etc those are the too, oh I don’t know, judgmental. Too many rules that just don’t apply to now. Things have changed.

If the New Testament is the important stuff then why do people bother with Psalms, Job, etc? Seems a little like picking and choosing what works or feels good instead of the WHOLE story. People say the Old Testament doesn’t apply to now. Really? You know except for the feel good parts. God put all that other stuff down in writing, in our hearts and heads because He had nothing better to do? He just wanted us to know how much better we are today than they were back then? The Bible wasn’t long enough and it needed a few more chapters?

If you want to blog on WP then you have to accept the new block editor but when it comes to our eternal life we have a choice.
