ahhhh… the knowing of things… knowledge… what was the name of that Tree in the GARDEN? Was it the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil..? The same tree the serpent said that God was all nervous about… ’cause if folks would eat from that tree, they would be as God…. knowing Good and Evil.
And what does religion do? I know that I was told to study, to learn, to gain knowledge (doctrine) so I would be ready to “give an answer for the hope that was within me“… after many years of no one asking any questions to give an answer to (and telling them answers to unasked questions)… I am so thankful to have finally discovered that the hope that is within me is a person, not knowledge about that Person.
I guess that is why I have such a problem with the infectious religious ticks running rampant thru every religious system… they don’t give us Lyme disease… but there is a word that sounds like Lyme that bounces into my head.
I might just deal with the Ticks over the next few days… the religious TICS…
Apologetics – Hermeneutics – Homiletics
These things made me a very sick fellow… for 40 years…
