"Keep the spices of thought mixed in with the broth lest it becomes tasteless and bland." I like that! Well put.
Eric, this really made my day. Bless you. Speaking from the Holy Ghost through and through. Love with which to shake the universe.
Reminds me of a quote I keep with me daily - "It's only a choice between fear and love". I'll keep love in the front of my mind this blissful day - thanks for the healing inspiration. May it keep us all well today.
This was a beautiful read first thing this morning. People are approaching this question from different angles but we're heading towards the same idea... it's exciting, actually fills me with joy!
Let me get this straight Brenda,
Little baby newborns are not one with God? The Kingdom is not in them? And you can restrict who God goes into? And where do we find these rules placed on God? (I understand they are rules to follow for man)
Newborns don't have the capacity to make a choice either way. My understanding is that they'll go to heaven.But if they live to an age of accountability when they get old enough, they'll need to make a choice just like everyone else.
But I thought we were speaking of the Kingdom of God being in us. I presume it is in the newborn and some how comes out of the child. Based on your interpretation.
eric, we were talking about Jesus and how HE is "the Kingdom". Notice that I explained that in my first post and proved it with surrounding Scripture passages.
So Jesus/the Kingdom is in infants. Why does God later take it out of them? Because the become sinners?
I didn't say Jesus was in infants. I said infants are innocent, as far as what I can ascertain from the Bible, and from common sense. I said that if they live, they will grow to an age of understanding where they'll need to make a choice.
So you are saying that God and infants are not one. They are damned if they die before becoming of age to decide? This really is a simple question. Is the Kingdom in children?
Why do you not understand?
I said they're innocent. That means God will take care of them.
No, it's not such a simple question, because once again you've posed it in a tricksy way. The Truth is simple; you should go with that.
So far I perceive, Kingdom was within the great Christ or in other words he knew the God's way very well and he poured it out before all people to see, feel and experience but a very few succeeded to have a glimpse of it. Kingdom is akin to insight.
