“You just don’t know how to interpret scripture”—And though it’s been said, many times and in many ways, but the truth is nobody does—or the obvious reality, everybody does! It was just never intended to be scripture.
Even the accepted schools prop up their opinions with argument on what they wish to be true, ignoring the forgeries, add-ons and bloodshed as the will of god, which coincidentally just happens to reduce the embarrassing intentional oversights… of course, everything pointed to Jesus.
The trick is to believe it before you read it. After being compelled by the men of words (the explainers) or a beautiful girl or boyfriend (to help it really make sense) we dove into the Bible to keep peace, to find good and moral principle to confirm what you already know—and to find Jesus so he can reveal himself to you (or keep the girlfriend) takes a fair amount of mental wrangling and encouragement.
Whether deliberately abstruse, or just disingenuous acceptance, the explainers will navigate you through the conundrum of faith, jumping from verse to verse and circling the failures like a London roundabout, you’ll never reach your destination but forever be tutelaged, unworthy of passage even when you’re circling the drain. Never then free to leave without the lingering threat—God will find you even when your dead and administer physical punishment to your spirit.
So you employ belief, faith, hope, for this masters game of hide and seek, this conundrical wheel of misfortune has many answers, but the answers themselves are not inspired, but shoehorned by layering faith on faith while ignoring the missteps, the epitome of special pleading.
Special Pleading; an argument in which the speaker deliberately ignores aspects that are unfavorable to their point of view.
