Ears To HearJuly 13, 2007
There was a time when my tribe was known for their knowledge of the Bible. That time has been replaced with a knowledge of the rules, do and don’ts and how to spot a “change agent”. Many in their “holier than thou” stand for their understanding of the truth have come to epitomize those that Jesus referred to when he said, “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: ” ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ (Matt. 13:13-15).
Paranoia reigns supreme, as they see a liberal behind every tree. It reminiscent of the McCarty era when people were seeing a communist behind every tree. Take a moment and read Gary Kirkendall’s “A Case for the Contemporary” It will be worth you time.
