“This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil(John 3:19).”
The phaonmneal pweor of the huamn mnid, aoccdrnig to Cmabrigde Uinervtisy rsceeacrh, syas it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are arnarged, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the fsirt and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.
The rset can be a taotl mses and you wlil sltil raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter, but the wrod as a whole. Amzanig, huh?
Lsat month’s bolg daelt wtih the autthoiry of the Blbie and wehtehr or not God wluod alolw sotehming as criitcal as His supneraturlaly reealved insrtucnstios to us for our etnreal savlaiton bieng oepn to consfuion, tapmernig, or miinsterprteatoin. Eevn in tihs prupesfluly miexd up cloumn, we stlil get the mian piont of tihs mesasge.
How mcuh mroe so if the Amligthy God watned to comumniacte His soltuion for our suols to dael with sin and detah? Wulod God alolw any ctnoamiantion to His mesasge? Wloud He mkae it hrad to unedrtasnd? Is He pwoerufl enuogh to ptroect His wrods?
Thsee are obivosuly rhetociral qusteions. Of coruse God is storng enoguh to procett His svlaation meassge. The rael quetison is actulaly a matetr of the haert…are you wlliing to reveice His measgse by rediang the Bilbe for yosruelf?
Insipred or jsut a book?
Look waht Jeuss siad in Luke 16:31, “But He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be persuaded even if someone rises from the dead.’”
If tehy wolud not acecpt the messgae of the Old Tetsamnet rergading tiehr sin and His lvoe for tehm, eevn afetr sieeng so mnay demontsratoins of His mirauclous lvoe, eevn rasiing the daed wluod not sotfen tehir hrad heatrs. It’s not crebidility…it’s stubbnroess.
Your hrad herat, lvoe of slef, and sin, preevnts you form eevn reanidg His Wrod. So lte’s hvae no mroe excsues abuot the Bbile bieng flul of conrtadicitons or mistinerprteatoins. The rael isuse is yuor haert and you simlpy dno’t lvoe God.
Or myabe yuo’re afarid, like a naghuty chlid who feras dispciline, but tihs is precilsey why Jeuss cmae…to tkae yuor puhnisment, so you colud cmoe bcak. Lkie the Prdoigal Son stroy taht Jseus tlod in Luke 15, yuor Fatehr lnogs for you to cmoe hmoe.
Wlil you gvie up and adimt yuor need (Isaiah 64:6), or mkae lmae exucses aoubt the Bilbe’s inipsration. Hvae you eevn seriolsuy raed the Bblie? Why not try rdaeing the Gospel of John and see for yruoslef if Jeuss is the olny way as He clamied (John 14:6)?
The Apsotle Jhon’s letetr
You mgiht fnid taht He loevs you, and olny watns to hlep you. Eevn miexd up, like this bolg, if yuo’ll just raed His Wrod you may fnid taht He loevs you. If not, tehn mabye yuo’re the rael contdraiction for critciizing somtehing yuo’ve nveer seriosuly raed and it’s not the Blibe…or pehraps you jsut lvoe the dkraness?
