Am i the one who is seeing different things, or am i seeing things differently, or are things really different?
The journey to Christianity as described in the The Pilgrim’s Progress could correctly be renamed as Hardening.
As Urantia books puts it…
You cannot perceive spiritual truth until you feelingly experience it, and many truths are not really felt except in adversity.
It makes sense that we must understand why & where we are from, why & where we now are, and why & where we are going. Why adversity has to be the teacher is the MYSTERY!.
