Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
When a person reads . . . they have control . . . they can stop when they wish.
They can start . . . whenever they wish.
They can skip paragraphs or even chapters if they wish.
The words that are observed by the reader have the same meaning and value of the reader and not the writer.
The reader is in total control of the information that they are observing.
It is great to have this unlimited power over another persons words.
That's why people choose to read . . . instead of being out of control . . . and being in a personal relationship with God. And anyone that is in a growing relationship understands a oneway street is a very weak relationship.
Listening to the voice of God takes away the power that all readers possess.
I've heard many people grumble about a movie that was filmed from a best seller and they always say . . . the movie was not even close the book.
So a relationship with God requires we give up all our power . . . this is a price that few people are willing to pay . . . how sad.
