Inner vision formed by words

January 25, 2012

From a forum thread
{{_ – these two scenes say more in less than ten minutes than all the back-and-forth debatings, all the discussions, and all the general eg0-displays of “knowledge” and “viewpoints” put together and multiplied times ten thousand.}}
___ Thanks for reminding us of one of the great issues of our age of revolutionary information technology.
___ All men should be much more aware of the radical ways in which technology has changed and is changing and will change not just our society, but some very basic characteristics of our mental and emotional processes.
___ Those whose faith has been formed by reading and hearing are particularly wise to be on guard in the over five decade rule of the visual media.
___ (Rev 1:3 NKJ) Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
___ Link to context: Biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1&version=NKJV
___ It is the inner eye, which we are instructed to keep single, that sees, with John, a fellow member of the body of the One to whom God has given this Revelation, the visions of Revelation. It is words, describing the visions and the interpretations of the visions, that enable the elect, as they grow into the Head, to see these things with the single inner eye. (The visions are obviously not very amenable to portrayal via the visual arts.)
___ A recent blog post on the subject of visual media.

___ Lord willing, there will be more, soon.
