This is something that refers to people who listen but do not actually hear what is being said. They listen to something with a pre-formed opinion or thought on the topic and therefore hear only what or how they want to hear it. "Those who have ears let him hear" is refering to the person who is like a child, one who is an open book for learning and is willing to be taught. Someone with a completely open mind.
Those who have ears should lend their ears to listen to the Second Coming of Jesus 1835-1908.
Listening is a skill. By attuning ones concentration and focus one can open ones ears up to hear more of the world. If a person has a closed filter they cannot learn as much as one who has freed his/her self from biases.
All are not having ears - Jesus
That is a matter of the past; Jesus wrote or authored nothing, tilled he lived in India and died there a natural and peaceful death there; Bible is written by sinful and non-believing scribes which is in hands of Christians 32000+ denominaions of them.
Jesus is not coming physically and literally; he has come in the symbolic form of the Promised Messiah 1835-1908 which may be called Second Coming of Jesus; the ears should listen to it; it is rational and given with reasonable arguments.
Write a hub for once. Now there is a some sound advice. Do you understand Jesus' overall message? If so, then live it in your own life and leave other people to live their life how they choose to live.
It is their right. It isn't your right to interfere.
I want to hear properly with one meaning.
Do you know the meaning? If so, good for you. If not, then go learn something new.
The meaning is subjected to each individual's subjective understanding of Jesus. It cannot be taught to others, which is what most people FAIL to understand.
Show others you understand, do with your actions. Quit talking about it.
Cags, I actually couldn't agree more. Even as a Christian, I often find myself irritated by stuff like this in the forums. It's not meant to begin a discussion or even a debate. It's meant to incite others to begin beating the crap out of one another verbally. It's about living it, not discussing it. It's about doing it, not talking about it. And by IT, I'm not just talking about faith, I'm talking about WRITING. If you came to HubPages, you should have come to write - NOT to proselytize, advertise, or psychoanalyze. For Pete's sake, write a hub. Quit posting on forums if the only intent is to see how a pack of wild dogs behaves when you toss a piece of meat into their midst!
I only have one Hub so far. I am writing another one. But I must say that the forums are a great place to see other thought processes. Hubpages for me is a great place to learn about other people and how they think. It is very helpful in the philosophy class that I am currently taking. I do agree that there are those who "poke the bear", but in their defense...we do keep adding fuel to the fire, instead of just ignoring or dismissing the bait.
Oh, there's a great deal of truth in that. I've made a concerted effort to truly stay away from the forums under certain subjects for that reason. I do tend to read a lot of what goes on here, but rarely respond anymore (at least in this arena) unless I feel I have something truly worthwhile to add to the discussion. That being said - newbies aren't going to have thousands of hubs...for that you may certainly be forgiven. AND, the forums are a wonderful place to develop ideas and gain insight.
Long and short of it, there are trolls and there are those who are troll bait. I try to avoid being either. This OP, IMHO, wasn't designed to encourage answers contrary to what the poster wanted to hear - or to actually begin a discussion.
Happy Hubbing and welcome to the bunch!
I am a Roman catholic Christian . I want to hear properly with meaning.All are having Listening tendency which is from GOD.
JESUS asked a question to his followers.
They gave many answers except one person.
JESUS told that you are telling truth beyond blood and flesh .Again JESUS asked him not to tell any body. why.....
Do you know.....
I am hearing .
I want to hear and get properly.
I am also a Roman Catholic Christian.
I feel though, that perhaps you may be better served in your quest for understanding, to consult the Catechism of the Catholic Church or trusted elders who may be able to shed some light on this subject for you. HubPages is actually not the appropriate medium for a discussion such as this. You will find many who would much rather argue with you, attack your beliefs, ridicule you, or "enlighten" you to a different understanding of your faith than you are looking for. Unfortunately, you will find more of those than you will find people willing or even able to adequately address your question.
I mean no disrespect to you or to your honest attempt to understand something that is central to your faith. I simply feel that this is not the appropriate place to pose such a question if you truly wish to hear a solid interpretation of this particular passage. If that was your intention with your OP, then I offer a sincere apology for anything I may have said that seemed offensive. But again, I do not recommend looking for this answer here.
If you're referring to the fact that Jesus said "Ask and ye shall receive..." I believe that He was referring to things that you ask of our Heavenly Father. I don't necessarily think he meant to ask on a forum on HubPages. But, then, what do I know? I am, after all, not the foremost authority on anything.
I wish you all the best in your quest, my friend.
I must say that when I was a christian (not catholic) I found the Catholics to be well versed in many areas of religion that they were challenged on, and were often formidable in our many debates with them. (We had an interdenominational debating class.)
I think it would be a better way than posting here too.
Thanks, earnest. I find that to be very kind of you to say. I often find it very easy to disagree with someone provided you have a solid understanding of what (and why) you believe, and a willingness to understand that neither of you may have the ultimate answer.
Very much appreciate your kindness in responding.
You are most welcome, I simply try to keep to my "truth."
I understood the point you were making having seen many posts on here about Catholics that have been prejudicial and misleading as well, so I thought the same as you.
If one wants to learn anything, it is best to consult those with the best understanding of the subject.
My experience was that many of the churches we debated had a good grasp of their doctines.
I see nothing wrong with finding out about religion if it is real education, not unsupported opinion based on indoctrination.
As you know, I do not believe in any religion, but I do believe in learning and my version of honesty when replying to posts.
My personal experience with religion ended in my second year of debating.
Thank you for your even handed approach, I appreciate it.
As much as I would like to be, I often find it difficult to be as polite as I could be.
Do you never say anything insulting? Come on, I bet you do...
Read the Bible. Not anyone's man-made writings like the Catechisms, etc.....
Read it with the eyes and ears of a born-again Christian. Then you will understand more.
Yes, but two of the ingredients were imported from another dimension.
Both of you cannot prove either statement. But, nice try.
And you can't disprove it. Nice try too.
I don't have to, simply because YOU are the one making the absurd unprovable assertion.
No, actually that is untrue. We have both made an unprovable assertion. The burden of proof lies with me, only if I cared if you agreed with me, or not. Since the disagreement is of no consequence to me, I need prove nothing. The question you must ask yourself is; what purpose is served in needing me to agree with you?
Actually, my assertion was only to point out that the book itself was written by man, which is something that isn't unprovable by any method or standard.
Actually, untrue, when absurd statements that do not consist with reality are made.
So, making ambiguity statements are your way of creating waves. Good to know. I've just learned that you're no longer worth any conversation, much less anything else.
I have no need for you to agree. Why? Because, I understand reality, which is something you apparently do not.
Born again Christian -which one
catholic,protestant,cpm ..or.....pl advic
"JESUS told that you are telling truth beyond blood and flesh". That's the trouble or the beauty of poetry as rules for living. It is relative to interpretation. Actually it is the mind and not the ears that understand.
I mentioned one sample for different knowledge and answers in JESUS period.
The people first heard the question and then only gave the answers.
With out proper hearing how can people insert it in mind.
In this sample so many type of hearing.That is why the answers are many.
I want to hear properly first.
"I want to hear properly first." What this means is first you need to visit Hearing Aid Specialist. "With out proper hearing how can people insert it in mind." The ear does not interpret first. The mind interprets second.
I have no idea where you got that, but I like it. It seems to me there are many within Christianity who are listening to a lot of things other than his words.
"Ask and ye shall receive..." Is that something akin to the Rolling Stones: "You don't always get what you want, but you get what you need"?
nothing to explain...jesus was making obvious point to 2 year old kids...i think you took jesus too seriously...jesus was explaining human body organs and its functions...
We heard the BIBLE and understand the BIBLE partially.That is why we formed many groups and follow JESUS .
[Roman catholic,protestant,pntecoast,cpm etc iam unable to count pl....].
Advice me pl if any religion has these type of groups for one GOD.
