Interpreting Man's Law Versus Spiritual Law; a problem for mankind

Updated on June 14, 2014

Three concepts, three precepts they can not be understood the same.

A very spiritual notion

A very scientific or natural notion

Do not read these "codes" the same.

A man who reads a Spiritual text as though it were a statute is in trouble.

Radical Jihadists, Old world crusaders, Monks on fire are signs of two bad phenomenon coming together at once. People spouting absolutism and people getting that message and living up to it.

If one cleric or pontificate proclaims any one who does 'this" is not a Christian and another proclaims that all non-Christians in WahWahland must die, then we have mayhem and massacre if those messages are met by a man who would live up to teachings and be convicted.

Follow this now because it is important: If cleric one also proclaims that no christian can kill another human, then he makes some sense and is moderate; If cleric two also preaches that only God will take a life then we understand him.

But our radical only gets the two messages about not being a Christian and must die. And worse yet another cleric comes along and usurps the teachings selectively. Now we have religious bloodshed based on a human interpretation of spiritual law using standards meant for man made law, not spiritual law. See the problem?

I was cruising along in life and a Priest from the Episcopal Church was having trouble with his church's changing over to allowing LGBT priests into the fold. Of course he agreed they should be members and loved but leading a congregation was troubling to him. He was a cool old guy who had been a navy Chaplain and a doctor.

So we ordered up the Canons of the Episcopal church, several hundred dollars worth and I began to reconcile the idea with the man made laws of the church. More on that later.

A man went to school to learn how to ride a horse, he learned on school horses.

Well now ain't that just a pretty picture --- just fine for school. But put him on a ranch 10 miles from the Mexican border in Arizona to round up strays on a horse trained but born in the wild and he is going to have to get tough or die.

Another man came from money got a law degree passed the California bar. Got a job in a fancy firm. He said he wanted to be a litigator. So they stuck in pro bono criminal defense work where he spoke to clients through bars and was threatened daily, he is going to have to get tough or die.

There was another man he got a Masters in divinity and was ordained. He knew the Word and the liturgy inside and out he knew all the absolutes and laws of the bible and all the do's and dont's, he was strict to his understanding of the book called the Bible. He was ordered to be a Southside Chicago Police Chaplain. On several scenes he gave scriptural readings but the dying did not respond so he declared them dead without the love of God, he was going to have to get tough or souls would die.

In fact most adherents to strict rules are insecure, they cling to them because and environment is hostel or too strange for their comfort.

But in order to survive and to do well, they must dig down and find their strength from within.

We are born free. We must not let laws shackle us but address them in order to stay free.

Can you stay within the lines and yet remain unchained

Do you think a Bible should be followed the same as a Penal Code?

See results

So using our brain, is really the only strict law there is.

I know that sounds simple enough, but is it really? Do you walk away from a lecture, sermon or reading with little rules to live by? Or do you walk away with a better understanding of life.

If the speed limit is 55 mph, that is what it is, no need to debate. If you throw a rock up over your head gravity will make it fall on your head. If you take a spiritual notion and treat like the first two laws, you have missed the point entirely. If you try to force a spiritual notion on another like it was the same as the first to laws, you will cause harm and bloodshed and misery and hate.

Mans and natures laws were made to be broken -- Spiritual laws were made to guide us in thought, word, deed and love.

Steal what you want.

      Thank you Eric, now can I print this 0ut and pass it around? This is what is so much wrong with the world we live in today. We can all be good people and all do right by each other, but so many are all too ready, willing and able to cast others aside because they are not living by the exact rules they are. I love and respect you despite the fact that our list of rules might just have some discrepancies between them. The minute people feel cast aside, failed, unaccepted... is the same minute they give up and stop trying.

      Love it Eric,

      Up and many others, sharing too!

      Oh, Eric... thank you, you're so very sweet. It's the words you speak that inspire... I just want others to listen and learn a little something from it. It's okay if we're all a little different, it's finding a way to embrace it that will make the difference. I think you are more powerful than you realize!

      So simple and yet so many of the religious among us treat the Bible like it is a civic statute, and worse they use their interpretation as the guiding light all should live by. Excellent thoughts here my friend.

    • Cantuhearmescream profile image

      Cat 3 years ago from New York

      Eric, these things happen... not that it makes them any less frustrating. I think when people love and believe and are so passionate about anything... they think there way of loving is the best way, the only way. We need to just figure out how to accept love in whatever form it's offered.

      Tomorrow is a new day and we'll have it.

      Beautifully done Eric. You used greatexamples that people can rlate to, in illustrating why strict and single minded application of knowledge or law more often brings death than life.

      The Father intends that we find life and "life abundantly in Him." The Bible can be a guide, helpful directions, explanations which bring us closer to Him. The Bible is not an end in and of itself. No religious text is, but they should point to Him who is the end.

      I know you said all this, and said it well, I just get hyped up and wordy when I hear or see the truth. Thank you for the ministry you offer all of us. Sharing. Theresa

      Wonderful and amazing also. There are so many people who are ready to judge others. Right now it is the LBGT issue. People who believe it is their right to judge, because they are Christians. They can go to church once a week, do anything they want the rest of the week, then throw stones at other people because since they go to church once a week they are ( perfect)

      Which is worse, same sex parents who do not abuse their children, or parents who are man and woman who do abuse their children?

      For some reason it is the LGBT issue that gets me hyped up. I have a lot of friends who have children now, and they are happy and so are their children.

      Why do others always think they are so much better? They have cheated on their wives/husbands. There have been men and women who have abused their children so much, the children end up in foster care.

      Sorry, I did not quote any scripture. And I will shut up...for now.

      wow sacriligious to the max. you said " to allowing LGBT priests into the fold. Of course he agreed they should be members and loved but leading a congregation was troubling to him."

      homosexuals cannot belong to the church. the church must love them and hate the sin, reach out to them to convert them like any other sinner and of course they should be welcome to come hear the truth , but allowing them to be a "member" is proof that church has left God and cares about what people think (humanism) more than serving Jesus (Christianity), His way..

      You have once again stepped beyond the bounds of Christ's teachings into an area that is not compatible with Christianity.

      and then you say clergy/laity structure which is contrary to the new testament is valid structure for the church. How can you do this?

      Call it my love of law as you always do, but my love is not law, it is Jesus Christ and HIS ways which you have violated here. This writing is an affront to Christ and an abomination. How Dare you call this Christian.

      1 Cor 6:9-11 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

      I can not believe so many people think is is good under the Christianity label. That certainly explains the apostate condition of the churches.

      Wonderful laying out of your position. If Christ is the Word, the living Word. And Christ is Love what authority do you call upon to tell us not to Love everyone.

      1 Cor 6 nowhere states that they cannot be members of the Church in Corinth. "homosexuals cannot belong to a church" then just who and the heck is the church for?

    • celafoe profile image

      charlie 3 years ago from Planet earth. between the oceans

      Eric--First stop trying to put words in my mouth. I NEVER said not to love anyone. I said (if you read what I said) we must love them and hate the sin, I also said they were welcome to attend services but can not be part of the church. I also said they cannot be members of THE church. and this applies to any unrepentant sinner.

      And since you equate church to the apostate preach at the people, clergy /laity in a particular building thing, i will explain the new testament definition of church to you. It is the body of believers in Christ, in other word it is those that have been born again according to scripture and baptized according to scripture. People- nothing else, Christ's people, so a homosexual cannot belong to the church. As I stated a homosexual can belong to a church of man as God has no place in it and allows them to do as they wish..

      who is the church for? Jesus

      what is the commission to the church- to convert sinners, to love them, set the example for them and teach and convince them of their need to discard the sin but NEVER to accept their sin. To lead lead them into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. The terms of which are shown in the bible, even though you disagree with that statement it is nevertheless True

      Further, if you understood the scripture I quoted here again---

      1 Cor 6:9-11 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.

      and if you understood that the bible says "we that belong to Christ are not of this world, but are a part of the Kingdom of God" you would understand why a homosexual and any other unrepentant sinner cannot be a part of THE church.

      Unfortunately for you God had the bible written in a manner that He did not have to say everything the way you want Him to for it to be true. we have to learn to put it together properly, which is the job of the Holy Spirit when we allow him to teach us instead of listening to mans interpretation.

      I hope you can understand this. please try.

      Can a man who believes in Jesus Christ be too weak to repent and change his ways?

    • celafoe profile image

      charlie 3 years ago from Planet earth. between the oceans

      he can if he so chooses but if he asks and listens to the Holy Spirit's answer he will change as the Spirit directs and that would be proof of his true belief in Jesus.

      Eric Dierker 3 years ago from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A.

      So it is not for us to decide how the Holy Spirit directs him? I remember something about a thorn in Paul's side, that just was not removed. We all have thorns and not all of them get removed. Asking that we be Christ like is the notion, not making a list of our thorns and demanding removal.

      Celafoe -- I think we are on the same page really --- you are telling folks what they should do for themselves and God. I am telling them how to treat all others.

    • celafoe profile image

      charlie 3 years ago from Planet earth. between the oceans

      we have no authority to direct another man unless acting for and with the direction of the Holy Spirit. Everything in Christianity comes back to Him. Only If He is in control will there be true Christianity. That is the problem, His ways are not the ways of men that want to be the top dog. He says the first are to be last-- the first are those that have the word of God (His anointed leaders) and are led by His Spirit. They lead by being servants to all others, leading the way by their example of putting others first but never going against the Holy Spirit and His direction though usually going against and upsetting men who think more highly of themselves than they ought (man ordained leaders).

      I can not say we are on the same page as I do not find you being led by the Spirit in areas, but by your beliefs, this unGodly affirmation of love that you exude is just not right. Dont misunderstand, I believe in Love, but the kind of love (there are 20+ kinds in scripture) that is needed for the particular situation. Some kinds of love are not fun at the time they are applied but the end result is beautiful. We cannot love people in a manner that destines them to the lake of fire, we must love them enough to hear the Holy Spirit and use His wisdom in dealing with them to bring them to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I have found sometimes I have to love people enough to let them hate me and I tell them that . Because when they get right they will come back, you cannot hate a brother and walk with God. There are very many people that have come to me later and said, thank you for loving me while I hated you. Because when we do it God's way it can hurt us , but that is not important that it hurts us, it is the only way we can see His kingdom on this earth, not worry about ourselves or what people think of us but just do what God says, His way and it ALWAYS works out right.

      the statement that you made about accepting homosexuals and their sin grieved me tremendously. It is not God's way, we cannot do that to them if we love them with God;s love, we must tell them the truth. otherwise they will never be set free. And that applies to any sin that is actively pursued. Sin is sin and we can have no part of it.

      Our job is not to accept things as they are , our job is to love the unlovable enough to tell them the truth and HELP them to find the way out, which is of course through and in Christ the Saviour.

      believe me my my intent is not to attack the person , but to help people see the truths of scripture where they are blind, for whatever reason. And I hope there brothers out there ( I have a few) that love me enough to do the same for me.

      I hope this helps you.

      Silly humans. Bickering over non truths, and half truths.

      God said nothing, wrote nothing and implied nothing. All interpretations are the makings of man only. One can say that these writings were inspired by God. So are all other writings, for in order to be able to think, reason, and write anything that is readable those thoughts originate from the gift allotted to mankind by our creators.

      There is NO religion that is the true religion, those beliefs are taught only by those religions who want others to think so and consider themselves exclusively chosen as special by the creators.

      Christians have no monopoly on communing with the creators, nor does it have any monopoly on the interpretations of whatever God intends for humanity. It is foolish and arrogant to believe that any man had, has, or will ever have knowledge of all the intentions of our creators. The mental capacity of man can not handle all that knowledge.

      Blasphemy is prevalent in all religions who command that they hold the final authority from God.

      God lives in all of us, and no man has the right, or the privilege to pass judgment on another.

      There are thousands of religions in this world and none of them have any more insight to God than all the others.

      Just by virtue of passing judgments on any other human being, makes those judgments false, arrogant, inappropriate, and far from godly.

      My personal spirituality and connection to the universal oneness can never be challenged by any man or his religion. The first rule of true spiritualism is "first do no harm to others". Judging someone for being born different and denying any person from belonging to any religious sect is causing harm to that person. And certainly is not spiritual, or Christian by any stretch of the imagination.

      'Christians' need to learn the origin of their bible, how many times it has been translated from language to language, and how each translation was altered to suit the times (to be pertinent to the current societal norms). God hates no one, not even those who hate without reason, or justification.

      obviously it did not sink in. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Are you the first to cast that stone?

      We are so indelibly implanted with our childhood indoctrinations that we lose the capacity to think for ourselves, so we quote scriptures written by ancient man over 2,000 years ago as if that was proof of some kind of authority.

      There is a term called: ignoratio elenchi. ( a fallacy in logic of supporting a point proved, or disapproved, by an argument proving, or disproving, something not at issue). That issue is the fact there is no proof of anything you or I believe in. But logic will tell me that my communications with the oneness are probably as real, or more so, than those that are quoted from obscurity.

      Neither of us can empirically prove our beliefs, therefore neither of us are correct, or incorrect. What i do know is that those who judge without knowing what they are doing are the biggest losers. And i am not judging you, i am just saying that you judge others where i do not.

      My communications with the oneness has taught me that my first priority is to live my own life and let others live theirs without judgment. Peace.

      If I am led by the Holy Spirit and you are led by the Holy Spirit and we disagree. That does not mean one of us is wrong or that the Holy Spirit is wrong. For the Holy Spirit can lead us both but in different directions. Paul did not teach the Romans as he taught the Hebrews. Peter was led by the Holy Spirit against Gentiles and Saul against Christians, yet the Holy Spirit had reasons and good came of both. God softened Peter's heart as I hope he will yours.

      d.william you are clearly a man of faith. A whole bunch of judging comes from that stupid saying "people judge you by the words you use". Too true and too imbecilic. I think we speak a different language sometimes. I could just change some of my terms to match yours and yours to match mine. Of course our silly human visions of a Great Oneness might be colored different or wear different clothes. Yes any scripture is Holy if the reader and user make it so to them. Or is that God makes it so to them? Thanks for your input. I learned and thought much.

      Eric: Thanks for your response. And you are correct in that there are many roads that lead to the same ends. Because my path differs from others, or the main stream, makes them no less valid. I believe we will all end up in the same place (and hopefully have a good laugh at this silly bickering of man over terminology and personal interpretations)

      But i still can't help being saddened when i hear people put others down for being different. God does not make mistakes. We are all born as what we are meant to be. We can look at life that is different from the main stream as something wicked, or something positive.

      I choose to see gay people as the answer to the exponentially exploding global population problem. If you were the creator and needed to make adjustments to preserve humanity against its inevitable destruction by over population would you choose encouraging murder in the form of wars, annihilation of a group of people as less than human (or subhuman), or would you genetically alter the race to stop the population growth? What would your God do? Would he be filled with hatred, or filled with such compassionate love for humanity that the only humane solution to the problem is what we see happening in our society today? Is is wrong to fight social change that benefits humanity? Or is it wrong to pass laws that prohibit abortions for any reason, and prohibit contraceptives in all forms? I would sooner trust in the wisdom of the Oneness than the deceptive decisions of man for his own self serving.

      eric --i am ashamed of you and your answers . Sorry but there are not multiple paths. God is not the "great oneness" He is the one and only living God who was and is and is to come and non Christians are not led by the Spirit of the God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and me,

      Jesus did not die for 1000 religions nor did he come back from the dead for them. He died and defeated death so that all may have a path to God, the only path is through the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. How can you , claiming to be a Christian agree with such nonsense. I am embarrassed at and for you, apparently we do not worship and serve the same God.

      Eric Dierker 3 years ago from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A.

      You are so right Celafoe, Christ Jesus did not die for any religion. He died for the love that His Father has for all mankind. Do you even know what a Vietnamese Christian calls God -our God? Do you know what a Hopi Christian calls God, our God. Do you know what a Pueblano Mexican Indian Christian Calls our God?

      Must all men call him by the name you use? Are you positve, has God spoken to you and said that he must be called anglo-Christian God?

      Why is oneness so hard on you. Why is acceptance of difference so brutal to your being? God is one with all of us. God loves us in our differences and indeed created us so.

      You are breaking up at the seams and should rest. You remind me of Harrison in the Monkey Scopes trials.

      I do not convince men. The Holy Spirit works through me and I accept whores and taxpayers and liars and those without faith. And by golly goodness I accept adulterers and homosexuals and widows and orphans and total idiots and black peoples and yellow and red peoples. Today I accept politicians and bankers and hypocrites and fornicators and for sure drunkards and thieves.

      If that bothers you. Take a break.

      Voted up and interesting. I do things simple. I keep to my faith and trust in God. There is the right way and the extreme way. God bless.

      I thought I would come lookie at this hub that has such a high ranking. How fun. Why do they rank this high? It is just an old man sharing some stuff.

      Maybe we should all share more stuff. does any one want an old chair? I sat in it and wrote a silly little piece.

      Oh did I tell you, that silly little piece got a man out of jail, we call those briefs. And he is a good man supporting his wife and 3 children. No you cannot have that chair.

      Sir Eric,

      I don't know how I ended up over here... lol, but I'm glad I did, now I can have another lookie at this high ranking hub myself :D

      Why do they rank so high? 'Cause you're the bomb... that's why! :D

      Oh and you're not old either!

      An older hub, but thought-provoking and interesting, as you always are. :)

      We are lucky around here to have our writing stored in a nice fashion. Isn't it interesting the concepts that we construct to make thing human centric.
