Behold God is mine helper the Lord is with them that uphold my soul. He shall reward evil unto mine enemies cut them off in they truth. i will freely sacrifice unto thee i will praise they name o Lord for it is good. for he hath delivered me out of all trouble and mine eye hath seen his desire upon mine enemies.
O-o.... the reason i don't read the bible is because i have a VERY hard time understanding it... any insight?
About 50 years ago I was a member of "The Catholic Messengers of the Bible". I few years later I joined a secular institute. I have always been deeply interested in understanding the nature of our human and spiritual reality.
The core teachings in the bible, and every spiritual system, centers around love and respect for all ways of being. In my view, religious leaders compare and judge various expressions of love as being better than another. This gets out of hand quickly.
The bible states in many places the dangers of judging others. As humans we do it anyway. We really do not know a better way to find the best answers. So we ask questions and judge the replies and various principals they reflect.
The best answers are always within the self. In your case, how best to deal with those who find fault with your way of being. Since love is always the answer, how best to apply it in any given circumstance. In my view, a person needs to begin with self love.
I do hope I can encourage you to trust that all is well and perfect for you.
