From a friend with a bit of dissonance going on and my response.
Of course it is… this one will probably not see the light of day either, but what do you think? There are those out there, such as i once was, who have placed themselves under Unquestioned Authority by Faith Alone. Who no longer entertain the idea that that Authority, even by evidence frommtheir own scriptures and teachings, has anything BUT their ‘well being’ in mind… Is anything BUT good and loving and kind.
In fact, they don’t even Know that such an Authority actually exists in Reality. They Believe it to be so by Faith, but they cannot give Evidence that it is actually so. What kind of evidence would one offer for a Supernatural Authority beyond time, space and dimensionality? For them, the mere fact that detractors cannot likewise prove IT doesn’t exist… is Proof enough that IT does. With no evidence and against all evidence to the contrary. That is what Faith is all about.
But this Being, Authority, Person… is what leads IB and others like her, such as I was also, to call themselves and others Morons, Stupid and ‘Incompetent’ to judge morals, right from wrong or even Reality itself… without or apart from Its Wisom and Truth that we only have by second hand writings passed on thru thousands of years and millions of Authoritative hands and successive generations who likewise Believed by Faith, without the ability to Know by evidence.
IB has set a quandary for herself and others. I hope she can put the pieces together. She’s not Stupid or a Moron as her God leads her to believe. Recovery Awaits.
