You could be become a co-member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Muslims, and you would not be any less confused than you are by this fiasco that has confused everyone so as to humble those who admit that they don’t trust anyone but the Spirit of Truth. It’s so simple that we are determined to make it complicated. Why? Forestalling. We were taught this with all kinds of heady theories by senseless theologians. When a person gets a degree, we presume they understand God. I dane that the more we know, the less we actually understand. Jesus had no problems reaching the disabled, disenfranchised, lowly, stupid, pagans (only means rural people, not heretics), prostitutes, etc. Why? Because they weren’t in any danger of finding their lives so satisfactory that they could not turn to truth and grace. The self-righteously rigid who wanted to keep status quo and quid pro quo meritocracy in place for pay. Steve would dismiss this because he WILL NOT perhaps change his mind which is precisely why Christ was BEFORE Jesus and was our Cosmic Savior. When given a formula to follow, you’ll follow the formula and resist the uncertainty of faith that Jesus spoke of as well as the Holy Spirit. We love pat answers and because most of us think hell is the certainty. Heaven is a distant hope. Nonsense.

“Before I let you in by My grace, I have a question to ensure you will quite like it here and now in paradise. I want you to be timelessly satisfied. After all, you’ve held out and I want to be sure you want to be well. By the Bye, I want you in. So, here’s the question. List as many people as you can sufficiently recall that you’d find it annoyingly unfair if you were to enter in and see them here. Who would you exclude, irrespective of your understanding of the evil you observed yet knew nothing about - particularly within yourself?”
Charles Barkley diagnosed with a fatal and deadly form of temporal narcolepsy. Barkley has been unable to talk smoothly and his ability to spell has fallen off terribly. What’s worse to fans of the show is the cast seems to enjoy making fun of Barkley’s terminally fatal issues.
Until you bottom out and come to the limits of your own fuel supply, there is no reason for you to switch to a higher octane of fuel. Why would you? You will not learn to actively draw upon a Larger Source until your usual resources are depleted and revealed as inadequate to the task. In fact, you will not even know there is a Larger Source until your own sources and resources utterly fail you.
