We're schooled in style. It's what we like. The come-across combo. Communicate charm, attraction, confidence etc. Whatever the way, that looks and have us feel is special. Someone with powers and presence. As ever -- modern media drives this into us.
Think we know more than we do and able to judge. God says we're in a fog. Not so close and the truth about another? At all. So far and yet there are depths we can only be God-shown. This, if we've got the love to handle. God would give freely but for right puposes.
Here's the deception: We lift up without the discernment and put down on the same basis. Like to put down. Builds up feelings we're not lost and better.
First base is wanting God. Be a believer. Want to know and follow the lead. The main reason this doesn't happen? Warped and whacko visions. Typical trash. All piled on. Motives to remain as-is. Out from seeking and find this claimed reality. Who God is -or- not? In Jesus.
Mad ideas about ourselves and others; loaded on to God.
All the fake or false-flagging lends itself to these presumptions; Said mystery revealed, more hocus and deeper -- not what.
This even before we deconstruct the caricatures. God, we-reckon:
Part nasty, while a somewhat absent wimp. That's one. On they roll... Grab a verse here and shove out miss-contextual there. No surprise, Christianity isn't on the seeming up and up. Stiff looking and stuffed-up, dawdling on the edges. The impression in the main.
A clever clogs line says "Jesus ok" but Paul's a crazed one. Bad fanatic who took the man and message and screwed it. The Old Testament about a monster. On... and on and on, the whitewash goes.
OK, Say the Bible tells/me different and have to agree upon experience.
Gab here: We're judged by our judgements. Eating what doesn't bring life. Tree of good and evil. Eyes opened and shame. In dealing with this we want to make shame upon others. Put down. Be god-like rather than meet God and if getting on board -- cut the ignorant bull.
Stop the re-projecting out, the false images of God.
If we live with someone and close. Might get some insight. Know another that well, have an idea? Generally, it's all cheap kicks. Out of whack with reality. God knows our hearts -- whatever the state. All that's most-hidden from us, shouts out and aloud to God.
What we tend to rate, God, sees through, what we miss -- etc. etc.
All we give out, mirror's back. What we're judged by. And... oh how we like to judge. Easy, the single most common stupidity. What stupid does -- the signs following.
Judge not and yet, when and only when need be. When God presses to do/think and -- rare as... say. Think? How often does it matter and do any good? Shows the sickness we're all stuffed with.
Shows we need God. Or live on and on like the indiscriminate and dumb destructive. Resentful and self-deluded.
Talk 'people' and all, one thing. Talk individual? This tricky, to get right. Or better said, 'respond right about and over'.
For God bother-ers, the need is to be inner at best and never count the seen as what matters. 'Actions speak louder than words' so goes. What about the behind-this and actions. We can somewhat self-perceive but to God, are all open and out there.
But this difficult to regulate. Need God for.
Need God? "Can't have that". And there's the rub. No need because not close-digging enough to know. Dare ask... Dare call the conspiracy that Christ is being conned about. We can open the book/s and talk to/about/with.
Do this or sit back and judge we can tell. We know. With all the negative baggage crowding enlightening discoveries.
Self-tapping to, word for:
God wants total-truth and all transparent. Hidden but know what grubby lacking insight we have. In light of the cross and Christ is sound to relinquish. All lies we can know about are in need of disengaging from. Deliverance. The demons are buzzing about and stay as near as we mad judge about. Confess and need for God. Ongoing. One on one. About now. And again, come again, and...
Declare the truth to the innermost, outermost and the one who the dark is as light. As in what's seen and who we are. Turn on the switches. Bible out -- volume up.
