Now; this earth and its inhabitants have existed for some 30 million years with human consciousness from this plane. The earth itself is more than 4 billion years old. The Bible is less than 6 thousand years old. The stories of the Bible as less than 6 thousand years old. The compilation of those stories less than 2 thousand years old, taken from various texts, written by various individuals, priests from different religious sources of the time.
If you sit down and chart out a map of increments tracing the existence of human life upon this plane by making 40 lines, each one million years in duration, and on the last line mark off what would be the proper proportion; two thousand years or even 6 thousand years, then examine and ask yourself if all of the truth of human existence is actually expressed in a book that was written and held for that brief duration.
The 2 thousand year mark upon a line the last million years will be nothing but a dot, yet you are assuming that everything that has ever been said, or everything that can be said in terms of truth is expressed in that tiny dot and there can be no other interpretation of truth, for that dot, that period is the final word.
This is very foolish of individuals. The importance of spiritual teachings is the spirit of what is being conveyed rather than the personality cult, the concept of self-righteousness, and judgment against others, hostility, wars, violence, condemnation; these are ways of error.
Any who follow these ways of judging, pointing fingers, attributing devils to others who are looking for truths, examining, questioning; these individuals who set themselves up as supreme judges shall surely find themselves being judged by their own condemnations.
