One reason the Church grew in its early days, but is not growing now, is not because people then relied on the scriptures, but do not now. It is actually because the spirit of God and the needs of those earlier times required it to expand. Now, however, we are entering a ‘new time’, and this ‘new time’ is not the Church’s time. But it is always God’s time. And always the Breath of God, folded within the undulating patterns of the time, is forever awakening, proclaiming, manifesting the boundless, immeasurable seasons of the heavens.
Undisciplined thoughts affect everything. Undisciplined bodies affect little. Even beyond the realms of this physical earth, our thoughts are not lost; our thoughts endure. Thus, are we accountable beyond imagining. Thus must we forever be mindful of our minds. It is only our minds that make sense of, and give meaning to, the entire universe of matter. We can taint the world we live in with our darker thoughts. Likewise, though we do not realise it, we can taint the higher realms, the very realms of God with our darker selves. We must always take care. We owe nothing less to all of creation itself.
Scriptures must be reinterpreted, because humanities consciousness evolves. As we evolve and learn, so do we enter new depths of understanding. With new depths of understanding, our scriptures must be known anew.
