All I can say is that your post talks of vanity and humility, but demonstrates that your concept of both is upside down...
It is surely vanity to claim that the intelligence that handed down the commandments, and went on to provide the promised Messiah (thus canceling the
need to keep the letter of the law), causing him to heal the sick and give sight to the blind, raise the dead and cast out demonic spirits - to
suggest that the intelligence who caused these things to happen is somehow to be ignored/ridiculed as 'ignorant human fabrication' - it is surely
It is surely humility to accept the instruction of the intelligence who did all those things - to 'seek, for you will find'.
God is a rewarder of the truly humble, who admit their inability to measure up, and come in submission to learn from Him. Anyone who claims that we
can never know the truth, obviously hasn't taken seriously the fact that God actually loves us. We are not a random cosmic accident, or a science
project gone wrong. We are a cherished treasure, living in a terrible place, from which we will ultimately be liberated. We have a spiritual enemy,
who will be conquered one day, and in fact has technically been conquered already.
Pride (such as assuming that you personally have the means to make absolute statements on the nature of the universe we live in) is the sin that
caused angels to fall. Our leaders currently worship/ serve the interests of these fallen beings. Part of their strategy is to fool people into
thinking that neither they, nor their counterparts on the heavenly side of the fence, exist - and that God either doesn't exist, or must not care.
The deception runs rampant as we near the end of the age. Quantum science is already proving that we can't get to the fullest understanding of the
universe by simple observation. A leap of faith is required.
I don't expect you to believe me, but hope that you will reconsider your perspective at some point in life.
