A Bible word that is rarely discussed is the "waters", which was first introduced in Genesis 1. Are the "waters" the essence of created life? Are they the living water, Jesus described in John 4:10 and mentioned in several places throughout the Bible? Is this "living water" unordered life? If so, then a lifestyle would be ordered life. Man's purpose then would be to order living water into lifestyles that are eternal. Each individual's lifestyles then become a Soul which becomes a part of the body of Christ (John 15).

  1. John 3:20 - "For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved." We can observe the truth of this wisdom by observing the actions of the dividers and manipulators who begin name calling when their views are questioned. It happens daily.

  2. John 3:31 - "He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all." If the Bible is the Word of GOD, then it is actually teaching Man of heavenly things. Why, then, is the Bible normally explained literally or in an earthly manner?

  3. John 4:24 - "GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth." The Spirit seeks the desires of the heart that feed the lifestyles of the Soul. The highest form of worship is to become like the one worshiped. Therefore, the lifestyles of the Soul must mirror the Life of GOD.

  4. There are many contradictions in the Bible--i.e. Jesus was the Son of GOD and the Son of Man. Some could say the first is Spirit and the second flesh; but is that the actual answer. Consider Matthew 12:50. Unifying Scripture reveals what is spiritual. Allegory revealing spiritual Truths produces contraditions with earthly things.

  5. In studying the Bible, there is always one very important question, "Why?"; but it is rarely asked or answered. Answering the question reveals heavenly things. Not answering the question keeps heavenly things hidden. Examples: Why was Jesus in the heart of the earth 3 days and 3 nights? Why are the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit only referred to in the masculine sense?

  6. Any appeal to the self-serving nature of others for the purpose of satisfying the desires of your self-serving nature is evil. It is basically the work of Satan. Matthew 16:23.

  7. Just as there are physical laws, there are also moral laws. If we break a physical law, we or someone gets hurt. GOD doesn't zap the person who gets hurt--it is merely the consequences of a wrong action. It is the same with the moral laws. Look at the U.S. today as compared to just a few years ago. Are we weaker or stronger as a Society?

  8. Everyone expresses lifestyles of value as well as worthless lifestyles. Using an individual's valuable lifestyles to justify their worthless lifestyles is like saying a hitting someone over the head with a hammer is okay because the hammer used was also used to build a house--marrying the two lifestyles. Today's Society is full of such logic, though.
