SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In this next scripture, you will be able to see the ”Artificial Barriers that separate us.” Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. For if anyone thinks himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For each one shall bear his own load. Galatians 6: 1-5 NKJV
BURDENS – Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters. One man’s faith allows him to eat everything, but another man, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables. The man who eats everything must not look down on him who does not, and the man who does not eat everything must not condemn the man who does, for God has accepted him. Romans 14: 1-3 NIV
1 Thessalonians 5: 14-15 – We urge you, our friends, to warn the idle, encourage the timid, help the weak, be patient with everyone. See that no one pays back wrong for wrong, but at all times make it your aim to do good to one another and to all people. GNT
Personal Opinions – I truly believe that the documentation of the Resurrection in Matthew 28: 2 (…an angel of the Lord); Mark 16: 5 (…a young man); Luke 24: 4 (…two men); and John 20: 12 (…two angels), means that no one’s Personal Opinions are immune to the direction God is taking them, even the Synoptic Gospel authors. There are different abilities to perform service, but the same God gives ability to all for their particular service. The Spirit’s presence is shown in some way in each person for the good of all.
