I did read what you wrote. Truth is not relative and we can know truth because God has given us the Bible. It is God's Word and not just words written in ink like you love to say. Oh I forgot, you have the mind of Christ and he tells you which part of his word is true and which is written by primitive minds

We do not ALL try to read with what is "written in our hearts" . . . too many of you retain the veil of ignorance that exists when reading the OT and you do NOT understand the true nature of God. That is what the "mind of Christ" is for . . . to provide ALL of us (not just me) the CONTEXT of the TRUE NATURE of God as revealed in Jesus. This removes the veil of ignorance and allows what is "written in our hearts" to properly interpret what was "written in ink" by primitive and ignorant minds.

2 Corinthians 3:14-17

But their minds were blinded:(Blind Mind = Ignorance) for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16Nevertheless when it (the HEART)shall turn to the Lord (JESUS), the vail shall be taken away.
17Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

ONLY what YOU BELIEVE is truth. If God were to come tomorrow and tell you that you were wrong . . . would that mean that you were a LIAR all this time for BELIEVING what you do? Of course NOT . . . you BELIEVE you know the truth so you are NOT lying. EVERYONE ELSE is doing the same, Betsey. So get off the superior horse you are riding and stop pretending you have any better access to the truth than any of us. THAT causes dissension and division among believers and THAT is sinful.
Ohhhhh, but you're wrong my friend....I beg to differ. THERE is a WAY that you can know, and this way is available to all! YES ALL, including you. Care to know how?

It is so sad to see so many legalists on this board. It is funny, they proclaim Jesus yet their who message is what THEY can do to please God, not what Jesus did. It is such a self centered ,self-righteous way of believe, it is all about me, me, me. I know, you give lip service to God “helping” you to be so perfect but it is still all about how Great YOU are.

Sorry, I'll focus on what Jesus did, not what I can do.

Yes. The saints and prophets looked forward to Christ, we are to look back to Christ. None other. Everytime you even think....you try to look up at Christ on the cross. We try at least.

No matter how many times you say it . . . nor how many times you claim the source of it . . . it will STILL be what you BELIEVE to be the truth, Betsey. We will all agree with you that Jesus is the truth . . . but it is still what we BELIEVE to be the truth. Unless you are Jesus Christ in His second coming . . . there is NO WAY you KNOW it is the truth.

A wise person knows that in truth they know nothing ...

That is why it is called faith ...
