Here is where I see the residual effect of the matrix working in our soul..when troubling situations seemingly surround us, and rather than seeing that we have in this setting the opportunity to come to 'know' Christ our Life in an even deeper way, we are more often directed towards some form of fleshly religious performance.
I am and will always be grateful for the scriptures, i.e. the book, but when stuff hits ya between the eyes, is it the book we're supposed to be turning to, or the One who wrote the book?
Its amazing how thoroughly trained and sharp a person can be in knowing what the 'letter' says, and yet be devoid of the spirit that quickens~makes alive the letter of the word.
People say, well, lets see what the scriptures say..how much safer can one be in turning to 'God's word'~Ha, and yet, not realizing His words are in fact pointing to the Word we're joined to.....very interesting.Maybe this might have something to do with, 'ever learning, but never coming to the knowledge of the Truth'~Christ, the living Word.
