Your quotes: But my own belief is many things happen that we can not deal with to get our attention ( a warning we are destroying ourselves).
God I believe is much stricter On those who say they are his if they misrepresent him and truly are his but caught in a error to bring them back in line, Words can either bring life or death and if a forked tongue is a problem or weakness, the words they speak could prove to work to their disadvantage and yes to get their attention
In all our worldy wisdom we cannot fix our problems,
End of your first quotes.
Answer: It would appear that you have been able to work out what is going on in this present world and some of the problems associated with it and some of the Reasons "WHY" !
My Reference to many having "FORKED" tongues, is about those who "Claim" to be Christians, but who have let it go to their Heads and thus think they are Better than others because of this info they have learned, yet they are still sucking on the Hind Milk Teat and have not yet learned to Digest Meat(Have "NOT" Grown up in their Faith ,YET), and because of this problem they have of a Big Head, they get all Bent out of shape when it is brought to their attewntion that they may be "WRONG" in their ideas , and then because they do not like being wrong and called on it, they then throw a Temper Tantrum and start calling Names, because they are "STILL" like a little child who has not learned to Grow up and take "Responsibility" for their own actions !
And I believe this "God" of theirs which they are proclaiming said something about those speaking with a "FORKED" Tongue, in which in one instance they may be saying Good things, but in the next sentence they are using Foul Language and name calling, and it may be because they have been called on some of their ideas and they do "NOT" know the "TRUTH" as they want to proclaim, and because of a Weak or Feeble mind, they then have a "Forked" Tongue and Lash out with name calling, rather than ask their Creator what it is they need to learn to understand so that they may know the "TRUTH" and then be able to Solve the Problems which are Facing them !
Now as to the Problems I am refering to which Deal with this physical World and the Physical things in it, which many people , with their "Worldy ideas", be it Science
or their "OWN" thinking, have not been able to Solve such as the Sickness and Disease which come to afflict them !
These problems may be learned to be Solved, when a person has the "TRUTH" about the condition, and not until a person has the "TRUTH" about the condition, so when a person is Sick and Diseased and is "NOT" able to Solve these problems, it is either they do "NOT" have the "TRUTH" about the problem or they understand the "TRUTH" but are too sorry to apply the info properly to Help themself or they are caught in an environmental condition which they can not Remove themself from so that they can Heal given their alloted time to Live !
But the Bottom Line is that the "TRUTH" may "ONLY" come from the Creator and we are talking about both Spiritual as well as the present day Physical problems which are Facing mankind !
And since our Creator Designed us, then it would seem easy enough that just maybe when we have "ANY" physical problems, that just maybe it may be because we have "NOT" asked our Creator how we are supposed to Live to Recieve the Blessing on this earth of Both Spiritual as well as Physical Blessings !
And it would seem that physical Blessings would cover Health and well-being, while the Spiritual Blessing may cover how to be Mentally Happy , which in turn effects our Physical well-being as well !
Now, "IF" one Really believes in their Creator, then one may have read where he said that "IF" "ANYONE" Lacks in "Wisdom" and "Knowledge" let them ask and "IF" they ask for the correct Reason of Helping others , rather than "SELF-GLORY" that this person may Recieve Great understandings and then know how to Solve the Problems which may be Facing them or others , rather it be Spiritual or Physical Problems !
And "I" just so happen to Believe this and have enough "Faith" to Recieve what I have asked for !
And this is "WHY" I know that "ANY" Problem which may come to Face Mankind may be Solved , "IF" we choose to make the Correct choices which our Creator has made available to those wishing to understand and Follow his advice !
So, my Line of thinking follows the Line that "IF" I am not able to Solve a Problem, then "I" know that "I" do "NOT" have the "Truth" about the problem and in order for me to be able to Solve the Problem, "I" must look to my Creator for the "TRUTH" as the "TRUTH" comes from "NO" where else , but the Creator !
So the problem with most people may be that they rely upon their "OWN" "SELF" for the "TRUTH" and Do "NOT" seek the help of their Creator !
You are Correct in a sense that the Problems which people have, may be to try to teach them that when they choose to rely upon their own ideas as to what is Right or Wrong, instead of their Creator, that this may be the Root of "ALL" of their Problems !
For a person who Truly believes in their Creator, is then going to seek advice from their Creator, rather than get a Big head and try to Solve their own problems by their own worldly ideas based upon mankinds physical view of how he thinks things are !
It may be called being Humble before your Creator, so that you may come to understand the "TRUTH" which your Creator is so Freely willing to give to each of his, who are willing to listen and follow his advice !
For the reason we live in a physical world now, may be so that we may suffer from our mistakes of Poor choices in order to teach us that we are making mistakes by not seeking and following what our Creator has set down as to how we may recieve the Health and Happiness we so much Desire, if we would just listen to his instructions on how to live and follow his Laws of Living properly !
Smile Tis your choice.
