The Bible is beyond meta-physics

February 18, 2012

The Bible is beyond meta-physics. From a forum post:

There is much in scripture that is more related to the inner logic of poetry and pre-Aristotle literature in general, than the mathematic logicality of meta-physics and later Greek literature which had a valuable influence on much of the New Testament.

The material success of technology in our own day has caused us to over-apply the canons of technical writing to writing in general.

Numbers have special meanings in scripture. Numerology can be misapplied, but should not be ignored.

Eight has meaning. Freedom from flesh. End of the journey.

Our traditions have ommitted or obscured much truth. As the traditions of the Jews did in the first century.

A long retirement has been a great personal blessing in this regard.

The basis for all sorts of success is:

(Jos 1:8 NKJ) This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Those who have been blessed with decades of closely, assiduously, and spiritually, following Joshua’s example in this regard have most thoroughly learned that:

“Jesus loves me, this I know, / For the Bible tells me so.”

Little ones who greatly trust parents who greatly trust the God of the Bible have learned a similiar lesson.
