Unfit and ill-equipped

Holy verse, subject to human interpretation, holds only shards of insight into divine wisdom leaving us ill-equipped, in our imperfection, to truly know the mind of God. And in our imperfect state we have been granted the use of only a small percentage of our miraculous minds because we are wisely given only that which we can reasonably handle. So how is it we lack humility, claiming infallible knowledge of sovereign will and law? And why is faith confused with fact when there is no evidence to support it? Still, self-righteous zealots peddle pre-packaged religion complete with divine amnesty if you 'act now' and warning labels for those who refuse to buy. We are all unqualified to say who is right and who is wrong. And not one of us is fit to know who lacks divine approval. To disagree is not a sin. But to condemn another is to usurp the throne of God.

The word of God brings faith as a gift and faith opens the door of wisdom where God's eternal spirit sits ... ever revealing, we are nothing compared to the glory of his love, and should more tolerance show to those around. Please tolerant with me who is so impatient with your words. One love
