LOL Well...by now you should have figured out...I like to think...didn't want to be the only one! Believe it or not...I posed some questions on WINLAC to one of the Christians (?). They told me that I thought too much!<quoted text>For me personally I thought while interesting it kind of illustrated what being over-analytical can do as far as losing perhaps a much simpler message. I am guilty of doing this myself so I found it interesting how easily one can support something to themselves. If someone wanted it to be negative it is logical enough to say why use a weed or mold or use an example where too much is a bad thing. For me it simply means something great can come from the humblest of beginnings. And dont get me wrong I have no problem w ur conclusion as the kingdom is within us and faith if not cultivated and watched and properly nurished will not yeild a positive result. Perhaps even one could argue it is how fanatics become fanatics. Although imo anyway, even w/o someone like HC taking parabolic liberties, this shows how easy we can lose the forrest before the trees. Got me thinking..thx:)
I think being one of the outsiders to this little group gives me an advantage of being able to observe the seeds that are planted here...if they are carefully sown...or just thrown down. Interesting at times to watch if one tends their garden or just lets it grow wild out of control.
I actually find what some people consider a simple analogy much deeper than some might be comfortable with. What do expect from me though...I am that person that can find lessons in a mud puddle! LOL
