[lucerna] [reform] turnabout's fair play
Mon Jun 26 21:07:29 HST 2006
I'm glad to see you took the 'David & Goliath' analogy in the good humour
that I intended it.
I thought it was apt, since I felt overwhelmed by an intellect that I
consider much, much greater than my own.
However, you said that I was doing the very thing that I was accusing
Stephen of (claiming the Lord's Divinity for oneself), so I tried to demonstrate
that by having an affirmative attitude, it doesn't claim the Lord's Divinity
for oneself, but that having a negative attitude does (because it never allows
the possibility of the Lord's prophecy ever to be fulfilled).
I agree that acceptance of this spiritual sense is subjective to the
receivers, and I'm not castigating anyone for this, but I do object to passages from
the Word being used to do damage to what might be the truth, and perhaps
blocking others from seeing it also.
Claiming that no one ever, may be in genuine truths, does this.
David R. Chambers.
