Many people go to religious works in order to learn what God really means. What God wants from us. They truly wish to learn, to do what God wants, but they should be sent to the one place that has crystal clear waters.
These commentaries, articles and posts just seem to either cause more confusion, due to the tendency to go back to the Greek or Hebrew, or it blatantly contradicts God’s Word. A good dictionary and the Bible would show them more than most any book or article.
Let’s take the Law of God for example. How many times have you been told, or read, that the Law has been done away with? A lot right? Now how many times have you heard that God never changes? So which is it? Has God changed His mind about the Law? Or is all of the religious material muddying the waters to the point that God’s voice is being lost in the effort to clarify it?
God gave us the Bible, our measure of faith, so it could be used and understood in our own languages. There was no need to try for any colloquialisms to explain the meanings. If God was tied to the Hebrew and Greek languages, then there is a hierarchy involved here that He sought to avoid. Jesus wouldn’t tell us not to call anyone Master, then tell us that we had to either learn another language or look up to someone who has. We trust that God knows our language when He gave us His Word.
So get a Bible and find out what God calls His Law (truth, life, light, etc.). While you’re at it, look up the word fulfill in your dictionary. Using these two tools, you can find out what God wants of us. Easy enough to work out, and you don’t really need anyone’s literature.
God Himself spoke His Word, He wrote His Word with His own finger, and then God made His Word flesh.
Finding God’s Word is hard enough in the clear waters. Like looking for a gold nugget. Remember He (God’s Word) comes in the volume of a book–Psalm 40:7.
You tell me, is Jesus among us?
