2 October 2012. A Point to Ponder… There are None So Blind as Those Who Will Not to See

______________________________

Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.

Jeremiah 5.21

Be patient with some of the konvertsy, they come from sectarian and rightwing milieus where the truth isn’t only ignored, it’s discouraged. You see, the most secure fetters are those that we forge ourselves and put on our own wrists. The most binding are those made of “gold”… where one’s livelihood depends on living a lie. That’s what meant by “there are none so blind as those who will not to see”. The “truth WILL set you free”… but you must be willing to pay the cost thereof. Shall you? Even if it means losing a situation that’s remunerative and pleasing? I know the dilemma… I faced it… I decided… and I paid the cost. It’s not pleasant…
