    ONLY BY POWER
    Can then human mind be changed


    It is amazing to behold with what force the human mind and heart resist teaching, especially any information which happens for any reason to go against the will of that person. What can be seen at a glance is easily accepted. Effortlessly it is added to the sphere of accepted knowledge. While it requires great effort to teach the human understanding which if does not have powerful disposition to learn it is of no more trouble to teach than to set it before an inquiring mind. Thus many false truths easily become enter reached among societies of people because the are cunningly devised by that master of lies to be appealing to the basest desires of sinful human nature. Simultaneously appearing to be noble and selfless in their motives. With ease men listen to the overtures of Satan. With great difficulty men listen to the appeals of God. It is difficult to appreciate the Love of God toward us until one , first learns of the unfathomable wickedness of man. Satan’s philosophies , which are many always feed the pride of man, assuring him in some manner or by some means he is god and worthy of the consideration of his creator. While when an in depth look is taken by the power of God the mind is imputed by the sorrow of his insufficient abilities. Therefore causes the person to look toward God with a change of attitude.

    Every good post! May I copy it?

    It is always our own stubborn will that keeps us from truth. And it is always God's grace that reveals truth to us.
