Is it a sin to want to open one’s eyes instead of being blind?
Is it a sin to do as scriptures urge us to do?
Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Gen 3:2 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil:
Adam and Eve were doing exactly what we are all told by scriptures to do, yet God seemed quite upset.
Why is seeking knowledge and ignoring a vile command to remain in ignorant bliss wrong or a sin?
Are you sinning when you seek knowledge and becoming more like God?
You remind me so much of Douglas Hall.
The bible says according to "god" that people perish because of a lack of knowledge. Again, accordingly to the bible, only " Jesus" can open the eyes of the blind and likewise, blind the eyes/minds (spiritual awakening/awareness).
Not everyone who seeks knowledge does so to become more like "god". Also knowledge can be truth or false, just like anything else, it could be useful, or not.
The question is, who the hell is god and what the hell is his problem?
Personally I'm starting to believe that god and the devil are one and the same.
He has serious issues. I think he's an idiot, I could have done a much better job.
What the hell kind of supposed perfect creator create such an imperfect regrettable human race like us. Also, it says that he knows the beginning and the end, knows the entire before it will happen through this sick and demented thing called prophecy (I wanna be a time traveler and change shit up )
Well he's pretty useless if you ask me.
I bathe in my sin and try not to divulge to deep into the knowledge of truth cause that shit is just disturbing and so morbid I prefer to stay out of the " rabbit hole". There is nothing pretty to see down there.
Chase the beast, or the beast will chase you.
