Bot Boxing Beatdown
I’ve always been intrigued by remote control “anything” especially if it’s got four wheels or wings. I enjoyed many hours playing with my RC off-road car until a “real” car ran it over. =) I was going to throw it away but had a hunch that someone out there likes to fix these things. It sold on eBay for over $100 bucks.
I watched the film – Real Steel – and loved the idea of Kungfu robots. Mr. Wolverine is a gambling man and ex-boxer who builds, programs, and trains robots to fight other robots in public or underground arenas. In a junk yard, his son stumbles upon a decommissioned bot designed for sparing named Atom (reminds me of Adam in the Bible). They trick out the robot with voice commands that execute fight moves and combinations. What’s special about Atom is he’s got a shadow program that mimicks human motion and movement….I wish I had a robot to mow, weed-eat, and edge my yard…and pull out weeds. =)
Did you know that Jesus’ ministry was to “shadow” God the Father? Please examine the Scriptures below:
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. (John 4:34)
Then Jesus answered and said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, but what He sees the Father do; for whatever He does, the Son also does in like manner. (John 5:19)
“I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the Father who sent Me. (John 5:30)
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
“This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day.
“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:38-40
“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
“By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love.
“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love.
“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and [that] your joy may be full.
“This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
“You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.
“No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
“These things I command you, that you love one another.
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before [it hated] you.
“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.
“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
“If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.
“He who hates Me hates My Father also.
“If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father.
“But [this happened] that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’
“But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. (John 15:7-26)
May I challenge you with these questions: Who controls you? Are you in control of your life? Do you sense your life spinning out of control? Call upon the Savior and get to know the Creator of Heaven and Earth by reading the Gospel According to John or get the verse-by-verse DVD set through John, Matthew and Acts.
