Pride in our view of, and dealing with each other, comes from our stupidity about God. Assuming that is, we're believing on and making connections. Not making Jesus claims? No reason not to puff up. No basis except many do, in a kind of who-needs-God virtuous rebellion from a church without love.
Resilient arguments 'against God' are subconscious. Hard heart and little to find 'out there' otherwise. Where the 'see how they love[d] one another'? Occasional glimmer's otherwise, the why and when, for most rare conversions. This or sheer existential hunger but hey, pride tends to keep this at bay.
While autopilot corruption and deception, driven by a refusal to turnaround. Too painful to repent and lose face. Financial incentives or blackmail keep elite's lackeys marching but self-esteem the hot drug.
Modern media has so soaked and pickled us and all learned to be proud. Believers are worldly duping along. Normalising our individual sense of superiority and all pervasive. This the fog that blocks all deeper reality. Limits God.
Fear of God is the beginning if wisdom because re-shapes... or better said, re-places us, so we're enabled to receive. Again and again, Jesus emphasis is the need to keep low with others. Involves dealing with material-based uplift and into disregarding of social prejudice. All talk of relating to God is manifest in how we come across to perceived 'losers' and compared to the 'winners'.
Power over and the submission of evil in direct and live deliverance, nothing, compared to:
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those...
How to resolve? Death to all yesterday and tomorrow, thoughts and talk. A protective wall against the besieging and intentional mind-control. All is boasting. Unless God's specific leading forward to something. Then contested and so faith on.
There is now.
God isn't somewhere else. No other realms or 'heavens' in a different dimension and non-linear movement. When we die, the eternity spoken of is about time never ending not the ending of time. There's no decent overarching Biblical-based argument challenging this. Only assumptions based on theologians, that in more recent consideration, found wanting.
The Spirit had more to tell, we're told.
We use our reason to look at scripture in light of progressive revelation and traditions. Conviction found by God's Spirit imparting and this tested among contrary arguments.
In the beginning of creation, God... moved and formed. We're born into the now and all there is.
Essential Christianity is always open to God, vocalised, or thinking and meditation. Completely fanatical sounding and an escape mechanism from people-pride. Our own, most important to relinquish. Others seen and almost without exception, should exact compassionate cries but not getting polluted as far as... and the fundamental traps.
Pride drenched and normalising is the Illuminati killer punch. Their defeat on earth as in... comes with humility and the power of God able to manifest because given room.
Blessed are the poor. Failure's needed. Think we're so smart yet stupid. Best give all away or whatever it takes to get-over ourselves and empty enough to live up.
God is faithful.
