Oh I see, you want me to hand out a half truth, like we see so many of the Truther Movement groups do these days. Naughty girl....you just like to see me play with fire. :P
Same could be said about understanding scripture. Are we playing with fire when we are not sure of every detail, but take a stand on it anyway? Does the devil have his way with us and take us down the wrong paths with twists and turns to disorient us. Sure he does. However, can God use this sad event to take His staff and guide us back home. Sure He can. Are we still His? Yes we are. :)
There are two people that know me well and have told me that I am a stubborn person. My Mom and my Doctor. Each one of these people can be viewed as the Pope at any moment, due to their authority being used because they believe they have the truth. (and no, this is not who I'm talking about). They have their ideas of truth and I have my ideas of truth.
When we look at the things of God we all know that there can be only One Truth when it comes to the Way, the Truth, and the Life. God has always been patient and kind. I don't expect Him to be any different now than He has been before.
