There is one thing that I cannot understand.
The Bible and the New Testament are vastly different and reflect the level of Man's development as well as changing religious text to suit the
The fact that you think that they are "vastly different" is your perception
. You are of earthly man, perceiving as man. You are not granted
understanding of spiritual matters from Our Heavenly Father because you do not seek understanding and wisdom from Him. As Adam, you may desire to
become like God. It's may be attractive to you. You may desire it. It is the inequity within you and for that you may receive the destroyer. It is
the very inequity behind Adam's fall and the very reason that Jesus gave us the pattern to overcome. Age by age God has been dealing with rebellious
mankind, a mankind created in His Image and Likeness but which chooses the inequity of Adam instead of their Creator.
In your "spiritual, but not religious" research, I'm sure that you are familiar with the Kabahallists, Freemason, Shi'ite, and Hindu exaltation of
the "primordial man" - Adam. I'm sure that you are aware of their burning desire to transcend into that state. See, they worship the one
mistranslated as 'Lucifer' for so many years. They worship the fallen one....The one who threw all of us into his sin. And that they reject the very
Saviour who is the saving right arm of Our Creator. Why? They have Adam's desires - to become like the Most High.
Our Creator is ever so clear - we ARE the created. It is His order. It is His Universe. It is His World. There is no room for the created who refuse
to behold it's beauty, it's design, it's marvels and there is no room for those who like Adam think that they are "god". There is no place for
the proud and haughty - none. The proud and haughty do not love good, do not love justice, do not love right and above all, do not love Him because He
is all of those things.. Evil rejects goodness. It's why they stay in darkness.
The fact is, the Old and New Testaments are the same. It is only by the teaching of God that one can come to start to understand. Everything is there
- every bit of wisdom and understanding for those who love truth. Every time that you read a passage something new is revealed. Every single paragraph
gets seen in a slightly new light. There is what He wants His children to understand. And His children pray to Him as the old Adam is slowly stripped
away, as the mind and heart grow in enlightenment. You want to assign "religiosity" to scriptire, but yet refuse to differentiate what beastly men
do with man-made churches and what your Heavenly Father calls religion - to take care of the fatherless and the orphans - the oppressed and the
helpless in the world. And if there's one promise that you can take to the bank - the saints power will be broken but the gates of hell will never
prevail against His Kingdom.
