And, might I suggest in turn, that before you accept the message, you consider the source?
Otherwise, you might run into difficulties
When you decide to incarnate on the planet Earth, that's the moment from whereon you will be guaranteed to run into difficulties.
Of course that kind of thinking is logical, sometimes necessary, and time-saving.
But sometimes it can be important to have the ability to judge a message without even knowing the source. If you can't do that, chances are, some day
you will be duped, or will take the path of lies instead of the path of truth.
We must all be able to discern whether a message has wisdom and truth in it or not, completely independent from it's source.
The only reason why Jesus had to be deity, was that it was the only way to ensure the message would remain pure and unchanged. But the message should
be able to be evaluated separately from the messenger, or otherwise you run into different kind of difficulties..
You have definite bias the moment you decide that the source is the first and most important thing about any message, and you may miss a lot of
valuable and important information and knowledge. I know it's less convenient this way, and it's more troublesome, it requires more alertness,
awareness and mental work, but it pays off in the end. Even a reliable source can give false information, make mistakes or be plain wrong about
things, sometimes (of course then he/she/it would lose the 'reliable' status, but it can happen after years of reliability).
Even a denier can some day suddenly realize the truth, and start telling it to people.
So if you have always thought someone is reliable, you might be biased to believe their message, regardless of whether it's the truth or not, whether
it has wisdom or not, etc. And in the same vein, if you have always only received ignorance and stupidity from a denier, you might ignore and miss any
truth that he/she might reveal after a transformation has taken place.
Source can, and in most cases, should be checked if possible - but it shouldn't be the -only- credential to dismiss or accept any message.
The message always speaks for itself, regardless of what the source is/was/has been. It will be either valuable or worthless, because of the message -
not because of the source.
