Guard your heart for everything you do flows from it.
Proverbs 4,23

Those chained in the traps of existence are made free. Life is a battle for yourself. Test the spirits whether they are of God.
Feel free to stay sane.

Whether you choose knowledge of the world over knowledge of God is up to you.

Must one absolutely choose one of those two subjects of knowledge?

Perhaps that is another 'Trap of Existence' ?

Its hard enough "testing spirits" as to whether they have had ethanol added. I just don't trust any god when it come to spirits. When was the last time their certification to participate in quality testing was questioned?



choose knowledge of the world over knowledge of God


Well if everything comes from "god" then that becomes quite the conundrum for the "faithful".

God gave everyone free will to choose for themselves which way they choose to follow.

Isn't God still mad about that whole Knowledge thing? Didn't He forbid Us to have it in the first place?

Can you blame Him?? Have you noticed what we have done to ourselves since That alleged transgression?
Every wish I get in this age, birthdys , shooting stars, and wising Wells for the past three years has been the same. The end of the Internet for humans. I want to return to the society we had before the internet was created. Maybe even radio.

That may liberate the souls of humanity..

You missed the point of what I'm saying



choose knowledge of the world over knowledge of God


1. How can one have knowledge of one without the other - pause and think before replying

2. What god gave man free will? The one who went temporarily blind and non-omniscient in Eden, when Adam went into hiding.


from the OP


Those chained in the traps of existence are made free.


3. There is no trap in existence. Life "is", Life can be beautiful or ugly, we ascribe meaning to our existence.

The world only exists in thought....
Where does thought appear to exist?

Where does "appear" appear other than on the screen.

We've had these word salads before.

Enjoy with some salad dressing.

This unfathomable depth of perfections, this affluence of treasures, this impetuous infinity of riches, is set in motion by its own inclinations to communicate itself. At the same time God is in Himself conscious that to distribute gifts and graces, is not to diminish his riches, but to increase them in the only possible way, by giving an outlet to the inexhaustible fountain of his riches.

Can that which is conscious wake up?
Doesn't 'conscious' mean awake?

We're having word salad with dressing again.

Are you awake and yet not conscious?

www.psychologytoday.com...


The two seem to turn on simultaneously. At first, we might be a bit groggy but we are conscious. When we fall asleep, we appear to lose consciousness along with our waking state. So what is the difference between being awake and being conscious? I have argued previously that consciousness is best defined as wakefulness plus content. Wakefulness is a state of the brain in which it is able to receive input from the external environment and from the self (internal environment). Let us see if we can dissect that out the difference between wakefulness and consciousness by providing some evidence that one can be awake without being conscious.

Matthew 10:37 says "Anyone who loves their father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves their son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."

Does the act of giving up all externals give us nothing or will God fill the emptiness with his spirit!
