Is that In The Bible

Is That in the Bible?

Exploring the Judeo-Christian Scriptures

Clicking-on either of the two above links, will lead you off to an excellent website run by Paul Davidson (professional Japanese-English translator living and working in Japan),and biblical studies are a personal interest of his

Some of this website information is just “so interesting” to read.Its extremely “thought provoking” if you know what i mean.And so i read through his website, and read what he and others there have to say there in comments that follow, then i also start to see exactly how he (Paul Davidson) can say how he see’s it as being personally interesting unto himself too

I realize how deciphering the bible (and most likely all other holy type books too) need to be done as if someone is trying to become like a “forensic detective” of some kind

That can obviously be an interesting job.You need to think intuitively

No sense in relying on other people scholarly work.So “education” wont necessarily be of any great use.There might be no school book available that you can read so as to learn the answers. For indeed all the scholars of the past, might all have still missed something

This is why education don’t necessarily = enlightenment too . Some people can even become highly educated folk, and yet still lack an ability to be able to think intuitively

Education, is not necessarily equal to intelligence

They may have “learned” how to pass exams all their exams. No sweat. No worries.The answers they needed, were all readily available to read-up.They learned to pass exams. Learned how to be able, to remember what other people had already found-out for them

However. The things that have not yet been found out.That will indeed require intelligence. Requires use of a persons own intuition

You cannot buy it. You first need to want-it. Perhaps you have to “kind of” choose to exercise your own mind, by becoming less of a follower, and a general “try to please other folk all the time” toe-sucker type person.And in that sense, perhaps you may even need to be prepared to put yourself on the line.As sometimes there may be people whom wont like what you decide to think, do or say

But yet if any of your ideas are any good.Then there is a high chance that you should also be likely to able to argue for valid reason why it’s good too

Go check Paul Davidson website out.I dare you to.I dare you to allow yourself to exercise your own mind a little as well. Allow yourself to be pushed to try to think more like a detective might do

What the problem ? … You too scared ? … To used to living your life-like a flock of sheep also tend to do . Too used to finding yourself a easy quiet place that feel safe somewhere within the middle of the flock. And you just don’t bother to look or think for yourself too much, you just trying and listen for the sound of the other sheep’s hooves as they hit the ground if your-flock ever decide it feel time to just up and run.

In effect you also still laying yourself on the line anyway. Cause by what you are doing, you are trusting that hopefully the other sheep might be all still staying aware and looking and thinking

For you ! (so you wont need to bother)

But yet, if they also decided to just take the easy road too. And they are also busy nodding-off in a state of complacency like a bunch of bloody great muppet’s. Then you might actually also be deep up shit creek instead too

Just when you were hoping like hell that you were safe and sound. But you have gambled.You gambled that the-other folk would have already done all of your own home-work , for you

sheep

Too bad for you then. Because

Our society are full of a little too many people acting too much like sheep http://truedemocracyparty.net/2013/07/rise-of-the-american-sheeple-10-signs-youre-a-sheeple/

How the hell else? do some things be able to get so stupidly bad sometimes.Manage to get so far out of hand.Even in cult situation, such as this “text-book” particular instance here http://www.discourses.org.uk/History/TheAberdeenIncident.pdf

If enough people? would have all been doing enough of their own home work for themselves

But too many humans don’t care to bother.They feel it just takes-up far to much of their-own energy to need to do so

They feel lazy. They rather rely on hoping someone else had did it all for them too

Society has become so much like sheep. We even feel a need to also wear same-clothing that we feel looks kind of familiar .Familiar to our flock.Some cult dick-whackers are some of the worst at looking really really kinda sheep-like

Anyway over on Paul Davidson’s website, the latest biblical interest they are looking into (biblical detective work) is

The Story of Ezer and Elead (and What It Means for the Exodus)

 

“the tale of two cattle-rustling brothers from Ephraim”

 

Go there and read along. Even try exercising your own mind yourself, and then if you feel like you can manage to muster enough guts to do so. Try making a comment or two yourself too . To see how you measure up (and if you find-out you feel can’t. Maybe its best that you at least would start asking yourself some question in regards to why that might be that way.)

 

Time for you exclusive brethren to find-out if your own Exclusive brethren ideas can still hold-water within the big-tent . Find out if your ideas are based on good ground, or just based on loads of cult rubbish and “wool blind sheep” shit

You think you have enough guts ? . Guts enough? to read through at least a few website post’s that Paul Davidson wrote

Bet most of you wont bother. For you are like sheep.You live like sheep.Act like sheep.You even feel afraid too unless you remain always running-alongside of some other-sheep of your flock blindly

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
