21 day Challenge – Day 21, All That Glitters is not Gold.

Are You Eating Fruit on the Advice of a Snake?

“All That Glitters is not Gold”

…and Other Foolishness…

Let’s review a rather basic Jewish “fable” which influences how we think far more than we may realize, both “negatively” and “positively” …or to be consistent let’s say “evil” and “good.”

…”When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves” (?)

If we prefer to think of the foregoing as “truth” rather than “fable” …it really can be both, so let’s try not to get hung up on our religious dogma (either way), shall we?

What can save us from our newly found knowledge is the very thing that could have saved the original couple. Let’s look at what happened in sequence so that we can have some perspective:

“Then the man and his wife heard the sound of the LORD God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and they hid from the LORD God among the trees of the garden. But the LORD God called to the man, ‘Where are you?’”

We, of course, remember what developed next, right? With the end result being that we now live by a whole bunch of traditions and extraneous knowledge that may or may not have anything to do with anything, but looks and sounds “good.”

We miss an important truth when we fail to see that the ONE who formed Adam and Eve wasn’t concerned about their nakedness, yet they covered their private parts and hid from HIM because they thought they “knew” – they had new knowledge, a whole new perspective on what constituted truth.

When we adopt and begin spouting new dogma, replacing the old dogma that we used to believe and spout, based on revelation of new “truth” we may want to NOT miss a part of this story of what can be the result of eating fruit from the tree of knowledge of “good” and “evil” …she saw that it “was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom.”

So, what’s missing? The original couple lost everything because they failed to look at what/who revealed the new “truth” to them. At any point along the way, instead of acting upon the new revelation, they could have called out to the ONE who formed them with a call for help.

It is why we say don’t listen to us or any other human being or system who/which may be controlled by a snake.

Live like this or.......Connect Now.

How do we escape the same fate as the original couple? Go direct, NOW, to the only ONE who can save you from yourself. All that glitters (that which seems “good”) ain’t necessarily so. What is the source of your new dogma? It makes no difference whether you believe in a false source, look at the result.

Speaking of what looks good, just because something is cloaked in the fruit of that which looks good, such as, “Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” – repeating this over and over to cover a false doctrine (and all doctrine becomes false at some point) can seem “good,” but don’t let it distract you from the ONE who can straighten it all out …that ain’t Brad Cullen, an admitted chief of sinners, but really look out for those who seem “good” …those who have the appearance of godliness, but deny the power thereof …from such turn away” …not to more of the same – Go directly to Dad and stay connected.

In Freedom,

Brad
