I keep repeating myself, saying the word of God comes through life....and you keep repeating yourself on 'find God in the book'.
As much as we both think that something is going to mabey sink into the other, we still tell eachother that there is mote in the eyes.
I only asked you one question that I remember...which was, if God already created a wrold that the answers laid within....why then make man dependent
on a book that could be destroyed? To take it further, why would God give his pearls to the swine? The reason there can be found spiritual wisdom in
the Bible is because there were spiritual men that let their understandings in the book along side the carnal mans ways and history. I dont reject the
history within the Bible...I take it very seriously. Just because though you have a history of men and what they did, doesnt make it so that God
backed all these actions and behaviors.
I will repeat myself, but only for so long. Its not so much for a individual I will do this, but for all.
You have asked me to elaborate on a couple things and I did. I tell you what is of carnal natures in the Bible and that the Bible is only milk. You
only then come back to tell me to read it again.
I walked the Christian path...I know the stories, I have many bibles and many study books for the Bible. I have searched the Hebrew language, I have
studied the holidays and practices. I am thankful that I am able to share my experiences of my faith with others and I am thankful for all others
experiences that influenced me and my ways. I am at peace more then ever and will never stop reading the book.
I mention why the Bible is not fully spiritual in teaching, due to ways of flesh that bond God's ways with human ways. If one cant let go of the idea
that it wasnt God who told men to write a book they will see God as a very Earthly nature image. This is meant to be this way, for it is a marker, to
show ones growth and understanding.
There is no stronger place that Gods word is perfect and untouchable, then life itself. All books have to be discerned, for they are written by men.
The carnal natures in the OT show this and show how easy it is to get the masses to believe something that is not so, such as salvation through blood.
We all have a direct link, we dont need any other man or object to get to God, find God, know God. It is a process, it takes time, it takes humbling,
it takes selflessness, it takes patients, it takes forgiveness to self and other selves, it takes an honest heart, it takes a will to face one's
inner self, it takes the will to pick up our crosses and place Earthly attachments apone it, carry the load and walking in the way. The law of reaping
what we sow still stands, just as I speak words, I must be ready to stand up for those words to all that hear them after I die.
Appreciate your concern of my 'fuzziness'....but I have never had so much clarity in my path. I have never been so sure about anything in my
life...hence sharing this path has became a life purpose. I am dedicated to sharing with others that they are worthy to seek God and the Holy Spirit
will guide them.
Thanks for sharing thoughts, I think its great to have both sides of the coin showing for others.
My best always
