Humans are spirit/mind/body and the knowledge of God does not come by the senses or the intellect. Let us not forget "Simon Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." And Jesus said to him, "Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven."" Matt. 16:16-17.

Subject: Know Anything
To Jim in particular:
ICor 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
5 That your Faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the Power of God.
Last year, I decided to start over from this point. I am reading, going to church, not accepting anything by faith based on the wisdom of men. I am trying to consider everything based on the evidence.
My seeking and yours have similar symptoms but two major differences.
I kept Jesus, and Him crucified and The Power of God.
And, I threw out, and continually throw out or set aside, that which some little person told me - unless their evidence was sufficient. (Before anyone takes offense to 'little' - Jesus is the only BIG person. The rest of us are little.)
I have no means of proving that my premise and rules are more valid than yours.
It is an interesting, and disconcerting, journey.
