Should fear be the ruler of my life? Fear leads to the dark side...
This is really a reply to prophecy watcher...I couldnt trace down his posts....
If you are believing in something to be rather safe then sorry....is your intent true? Is that real faith?
Would a perfect creator really expect us to base faith on pure belief in something we cant see? Would a perfect plan really work in such a way that
the creator is counting on man to throw logic to the way side and depend on another mans word to be truth, when its known that man is imperfect and
I would think a perfect creator....would expect you to think about that, use critical thinking, maybe by following another mans words, show the
creator just what it needs to see...that you are not seeking within and you are not truly seeking thee.
Not that you would 'be denied heaven' but be offered what you are in need of to become that humble seeker, so you can then 'feel' the spirit
literally, 'know' there is something divine within you and of you, experience for yourself, WHY the spirit would not want or need you to listen to
another man for truth.
The Spirit may need to know if you have started to learn how to discern between things of earth and things of spirit...and things like the bible and
religions could be a tool the spirit uses to weigh and measure what we still need and what we are ready for....in a unconditional loving way....over a
'simply obey' way.
