SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe provides a good overview of the many dimensions of cultural systems, belief systems, and worldviews that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values. “Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those vinedressers?” They said to Him, “He will destroy those wicked men miserably, and lease his vineyard to other vinedressers who will render to him the fruits in their seasons.” Immanuel said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: ‘The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone. This was the LORD’s doing, And it is marvelous in our eyes’? “Therefore I say to you, the kingdom of God will be taken from you and given to a nation bearing the fruits of it. And whoever falls on this stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.” Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitudes, because they took Him for a prophet. Matthew 21: 40-46 NKJV
CORNERSTONE – For in Scripture it says: “See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.” Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, “The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,” and, “A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.” They stumble because they disobey the message – which is also what they were destined for. 1 Peter 2: 6-8 NIV
Acts 4: 10-12 – … then you should all know, and all the people of Israel should know, that this man stands here before you completely well through the power of the name of Immanuel of Nazareth – whom you crucified and whom God raised from death. Immanuel is the one of whom the scripture says, ‘The stone that you the builders despised turned out to be the most important of all.’ Salvation is to be found through him alone; in all the world there is no one else whom God has given who can save us.” GNT
Sense of Belief (The Feeling Of Being Certain That Something Exists Or Is True) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe are involved in the moral judgment of the person, and help in decision making. Include the relationship to a higher power and are related to an existential perspective on life, and the nature of reality, or of Reality. The nature of reality, or of Reality, is a description or explanation of that reality, or of Reality. A reality for a particular stone or person consists of that stone’s or person’s interactions with changing environments – ie with what becomes for them.
