Please allow this brief digression — Other than being God’s creation, I consider myself nothing special in the natural. Nevertheless, I know what I know and I know what I do not know. THIS I KNOW — I am convinced that God “speaks” to us in and through Scripture. If you need proof of what I say through a plausible discussion or argument in an authoritative source please consider this: (1) According to the academic arena, I am a scholar (that’s what I was told by my doctoral mentor anyway) (2) I do not claim that title but do consider myself, among others things, an honest researcher of truth-regardless of the outcome (3) This will never work until you ignore the ego (in all its forms) and get acquainted with the true you and (4) Come to the Cross of Christ Jesus. Until you come to the foot of the Cross - you will never know how to hear God, which greatly diminishes your being able to understand the Truth!
