The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.
Ah, the 'secret things' verse. I'm sure there are endless arguments regarding the true meaning of what is 'secret' here.... what is meant for God alone. And here I've taken this verse right out of context and plucked it up at the top of this post, AND... I am going to arrogantly state what I think it means.
I'm siding with Calvin on this one.
Some things are not for us to know. He's told us what we need to know.... it's more than enough to keep us busy. Really.
Frankly, I'm getting tired of, and too old for, the endless debates. I've wasted so much time trying to figure out stuff that I now understand is way above my pay-grade. While I was exercising brain cells ad nauseum, my joints were rusting out.
That's not gospel living. And if there still be any confusion about that, let it be laid to rest in the gospels themselves.
Tonia posted today a challenge to immerse ourself in gospel.
Yes. Jesus' very own words.... definitely revelation I need bother with.
