Thank you.
It makes a HUGE difference when you know the author personally.

Illuminate means show you what is really there . . . not what merely appears to be there . . . otherwise it wouldn't be "illuminating."

And it makes a HUGE difference when you know the wrong author with a completely opposite character from Jesus Christ. I remain baffled how a merger of complete opposites has been maintained for 2000+ years.

What motivates people to discredit another person's passion for the word of God?

maybe if we paid more attention to seeeking and serving god istead of idolizing a book, we would give all our efforts to showing love to each individual without judgments of any sort and truly start to serve the Most High in heart spirit an action d not in mere words.
i have no excuses not to show love and kidness to another, but i dont have a right to judge them for if there beliefs are diff to my own. god will judge the hearts of all man.in his time.

hope you have a happy day today.
bless.

Whether or not you see it, or admit, you are judging people when you suggest they idolize a book when they are simply sharing their passion for the word of God. Such attitude is not loving nor kind.

Yes, the Bible teaches that the people of God will be hated and ridiculed, just like Jesus was hated and ridiculed.

There is no opposition. Jesus is one with the Father.
