Allan, yesterday, in my impatience, I neglected to properly address some of your remarks. I apologize and will attempt to do so now.
""and Silver Streak...
"Omniscience is man's term for an infinity of means. Infinity is another term invented by man for something beyond man's ability to understand."
If all worldly concepts are simply imperfect and unreliable conclusions of the flawed human logic, what makes you so accepting of the teachings of your doctrine? Whether you like it or not, those things all exist as concepts as well. While you propose that they exist "in reality", the concepts of them exist in your mind, they are human concepts.
So if you willingly reject inconvenient concepts due to unreliability, why do you so willingly accept anything you are taught from scripture? The scriptures were written by hands as human as yours. ""
End of Allan's quote.
You rightly point out that concepts are important.
And I believe that it is useful to work with two domains in the universe of our discourse. First we have the domain of truth which I call reality, which leads to spirit freedom. And secondly we have the domain of selfish illusion" The use of misinformation to create illusions for selfish purposes. This leads to an enslaving of spirits in man's bondage.
A loss of freedom.
And life on earth, as I perceive it is a spirit living in a flesh (matter) container seeking a destiny being forced to choose between truth, and selfish illusion. Wallowing in bondage, searching for freedom and purpose. And the war of good and evil, I see is the war between freedom and selfish illusion.
And concepts, I believe are a gift from God, which help us visualize ways to look at Creative Wonders receiving magnificent joys and pleasures by receiving and relishing beautiful musical/poetic frequencies of Love and beauty, in full freedom of spirit.
So, for the record, please understand that I do not accept any teaching of any doctrine. If you read my writings you will soon find that I suggest that all doctrine is flawed, written by men, and is always to be distrusted! I do however study many Scriptural writings and use many scriptural references to validate my hypotheses of understanding, and I freely use Scripture to illustrate, emphasize and complement my thoughts and writings in poetry.
I freely scan a half dozen versions of The Holy Bible, use translations of The Holy Qu'ran, Indian Poetry and writings by people known as Saints and Apostles of God from many sources. To a lessor degree I use writings of philosophers, scientists and men and women of notoriety. And on occasion I may even use sayings, off the street.
But I accept no works of man, no matter how inspired, or pure, the claim! The reason for this is obvious, If God's Word is Omniscient, as I hypothesize, no written human words in any one language, let alone a finite number, could ever accurately translate The Word in completeness and fullness. Infinite Wisdom cannot be forced into a finite space. Also, God is a loving God, as I hypothesize, and most doctrine is used counterproductively by men of cloth to control the minds and souls of man, placing women in bondage, teaching partitioning, hate and favoritism. As Christ said, they are Pharisees! Vipers!
Secondly, I hypothesize that God is in all life, and have yet to find Scripture, which is inclusive of life forms beyond man. I view this as a necessary requirement to a full understanding of God.
So I fully believe that man's translated, though inspired works can only be a shallow bridge to God's Word. Although I do believe that man has access to God's Full Omniscient Word through what I call the seventh sense, God Sense, in the Holy Spirit spoken of as The Comforter, by Christ. And this Window opens to God's Power and Energy when a spirit (our real existence) is pure enough to receive clear reception.
And I believe that Jesus Christ was the flesh container for The Christ, God's Spirit of Love, which continues to live in all life forms, connecting all life forms together in a spiritually nurturing way as blood, cleansing and purifying God's Body of Life.
I believe that Scripture and much doctrine may have begun with inspiration received from The Holy Spirit, although man has always been quick to corrupt God's purity in True Words of God that would upset the bondage order of man's authority. As man seeks always to use his powers of selfishness to fulfill selfish desires in a world of illusion and deception. And the churches are man's biggest allies in this ongoing deception. Although the vision of God's Candle of Light is carried and perpetuated by the churches.
So I do believe that concepts and tools of logic and mathematics are highly valuable provide we use them to search for truth and not misuse them to justify opinions that we selfishly cling to.
Forgive me if I came across differently.
