“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he known them, because they are spiritually discerned.” See 1 Corinthians 2:14.
Unable to discern means that they are unable to see the difference between themselves and the people, who call themselves Christians. Perhaps that’s why everything Christian is all about foolishness. You have to look away from churched people. Because most of them are associated with conglomerates of entrepreneurs more interested in empire building than the causes of Jesus
Maybe the following will be helpful. The Christ focused and centered life is real. Experience that life for yourself from the comfort of your own home.
Here’s how. Slowly, and carefully study, Romans 5:6-21, until you know that you have at least some awareness of what is being said to you.
Then go to Romans 10:9-10, and confirm in your heart through your mouth what you have read. Wait awhile, maybe a few hours or so. Then turn to, 2 Corinthians 5:17, and discover the new you.
After embracing Christ, the next morning, I knew something was very different about me. I was in a very confined environment which didn’t allow for maneuverability. So I couldn’t go anywhere, had to stay put. But I had a Bible, and eventually I came across, 2 Corinthians 5:17. BINGO!
Hopefully, everyone knows what BINGO means. You don’t have to go to church. It’s suggested that you avoid such institutions. Because, few are palaces of truth, for reasons aforementioned.
But, you need to grow spiritually. So its suggested you study your Bible at home. Start you journey by studying the Apostle Paul’s writings. Starting with the book of Romans concluding with the book of Philemon. Again its suggested, study those books slowly and in a careful manner. Takes notes, and ask yourself questions with a determination that beings about answers.
When, your comfortable with your growth tackle the book of Acts in the same manner. This Padre believes Paul also wrote the book of Acts.
It might be helpful to start a Bible study group within your home adhering to the above suggestions. Overtime you, and your study partners might become lampstands, who encounter angelic experiences. Fully able to enjoy Jesus in your midst. See Revelation 1:20 and Revelation 1:13.
