Chapter 29 - Cutting Through the Baloney
Much of the confusion about Christianity results from Satan exploiting us with his systems. He has raised many voices making loud, and often contradictory, claims. The ambitious, greedy, and vain are often drawn to shout the loudest. Satan has constructed the world to appeal to and resonate with our flesh.
The most successful tactic Satan has used is to provide opportunity for Christians to be assured they are on the right track and 'park' themselves away from the cacophony of contending Christian claims. A Christian who can be assured he has found the 'right' place will stop looking. Christianity seems no longer confusing, because, thinking he has arrived at complete faith, he no longer has any need to search for truth.
The search for truth is not a selection of the most correct doctrine. It is drawing closer to Jesus who is truth. This is a continuing process. As we mature (draw closer to Christ), we are shaped into his image.
The purpose of life is to do the will of God. The angels split into two groups, those who would do God's will and those who wouldn't. Humans had a different path. We were created without much knowledge and were to live by faith trusting in what God told us. When Adam and Eve chose a different path, we became disconnected from God and left on our own. The way back to God and out of the darkness of the world is through Jesus.
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. - John 14:6
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. - John 8:12
The way to have this light to cut through the fog of confusion and darkness is to grow in our relationship with Jesus. The more we come to know him, the deeper our relationship grows and the less confusion besets us.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. - John 8:31-32
