Encouragement for the Slow Learners, Like Me

By | quote | No Comments

I am a very slow learner. I’m very flattered that you think that I’m a real genius. But if I’m a genius, all I can tell you is I’m the slowest, dumbest genius you’ll ever meet.

You just gotta read it and read it again, and read it again. Think about it, and think about it again, and all of a sudden, it all starts to make sense.

Define God.

By | religion | No Comments

According to the King James Version of John 4:24, “God is a spirit.” The English Standard Version of John 4:24 state, “God is spirit.” So defining God is pretty straightforward if you use the Bible as a guide. However, the word spirit is not defined in the bible at all.

Matter of fact the best definition I could find was from entering “define spirit” in the Google search engine. Google simply defines spirit as, “the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character; the soul.”

Personally, I agree with everything up to the semicolon, because the Bible would not say in Hebrews 4:12 that, “…the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit…” if the spirit and soul was the same thing.

So on a simplistic level, if God is spirit, then God is the nonphysical part of a person that is the seat of emotions and character. Which validates Ephesians 4:6 which states, “… one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all,” no rituals necessary.

Am I on to something? Am I oversimplifying things? Please let me know in the comments below.
