Let us consider these three passages from the Bible:
Galatians 6:7 ESV
Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.
2 Timothy 4:2-4 ESV
Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching. For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.
Acts 17:26 ESV
And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,
______________________A BETTER PUPPET?
Now, the notion that Man is a puppet… most likely does not sit well with some people. But, it is seemingly my purpose in life [at least since 1983] to be like what 2 Timothy 4:2-4 states above. To teach in and out of season; to reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with some patience, that which I have been given to know.
I particularly like the part: “…but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will tun away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths”. Or put another way, how can there be so many different sects of Christianity… if people truly believed that there is but one God? Is Man so dense that he/she cannot see that it is we human beings that demand God conform to our beliefs of what He should be? And what He can and cannot do?
Since God is invisible, and the nature of Man is to believe only that which his/her physical brain and senses can perceive, it is extremely difficult to self-correct our MINDs [which, from a position of invisibility it should be added] cause us to think whatever suits our MINDs. And, when you add to this basic problem of not being able to perceive three-quarters of ourselves… an “ego” [which is the result of what we fear, and cannot possibly know by thinking], then you move into a form of arrogance wherein we strongly defend our ignorance. Even to the point where some of our least evolved Souls take to killing those with whom they disagree.
____________ No one should resent being a puppet, if that person actually believes in God. God, in His great wisdom, Created both the Law of Karma, and that of Reincarnation to insure that we Souls are treated fairly, justly and with absolute equality. And in the East, the words of the mystics regarding these two basic laws are understood by most people. In the West, however, with the dominance of Intellectualism, or an intellectual dependence on people who project their fears and prejudices in order to draw to themselves others who share their ignorance and fear: 2 Timothy 2-4, “… having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.” False prophets, in other words.
If all people were Enlightened, there would be no conflict, racism, hatred, or confusion. The problem is, not everyone is Enlightened. The question then becomes…. is our educational system in America helping us move toward Enlightenment, or are we accumulating for ourselves those who “fit” our fears and prejudices? Common Core being the latest gift from Satan.
