The Junior Woodchucks’ Guidebook – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

2 Timothy 3:16-17 – The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone. (TLB)

As you read earlier, in Number One Dime, I was a huge fan of DuckTales when I was a kid. I still remember when Huey, Dewey, and Louie were part of the Junior Woodchucks. It was the DuckTales version of the Boy Scouts. The triplets with Doofus Drake did the usual boy scout things of help old ladies across the street, camping, and fighting a little crime whenever possible. However no matter what trouble they could get into if they were ever in trouble the lads could always rip open the Junior Woodchucks’ Guidebook and whatever they needed to know to help them in life was in there.

“In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil’s might Beware my power–Green Lantern’s light!” That beautiful oath is of those from the Green Lantern Corp. In the comics we follow a few Green Lanterns but the most famous one is Hal Jordan, a test pilot for Ferris Aircraft. Even without his ring he was known to be a fearless pilot. That boldness is what caused him to be chosen by Abin Sur’s ring to become the Green Lantern of Earth. The Green Lanterns are powered by willpower and the more will they have the stronger they can be. However a comic book character is nothing without a nemesis.

The Sinestro Corps or Yellow Lantern Corps, head by the sinister Thaal Sinestro, is one of the early archnemesis of the Green Lantern Corp. While the Green Lanterns are powered by the user’s will the Sinestro Corp is powered by the fear of others. According to the Apostle Paul, as he writes to Timothy, God would never let us power the Sinestro Corps ring. Here’s why. Continue reading “In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night – 2 Timothy 1:7”
