Today, 27 November 2012, if a person walks around saying:
- Seek not the law in your scriptures, for the law is life, whereas the scripture is dead.
- God wrote not the laws in the pages of books, but in your heart and in your spirit. They are in your breath, your blood, your bone; in your flesh, your bowels, your eyes, your ears, and in every little part of your body. They are present in the air, in the water, in the earth, in the plants, in th e sunbeams, in the depths and in the heights. They all speak to you that you may understand the tongue and the will of the living God. But you shut your eyes that you may not see, and you shut your ears that you may not hear.
- I tell you truly, that the scripture is the work of man, but life and all its hosts are the work of our God. Wherefore do you not listen to the words of God which are written in His works? And wherefore do you study the dead scriptures which are the work of the hands of men?"
This man would have been killed in some countries...
Therefore, even 2,000 years ago, a man saying these same things would have been killed, in this case crucified.
