attention is worship,
Temptation, the beginning of understanding SPIRIT is True intention of heart toward SPIRIT. Lead us not into temptation so that we fail, EXCEPT to deliver us from what is really evil. Who would want to go through anything like the cup that Jesus drank except to be delivered from evil. The humiliation, the misunderstanding, the pain! To have your attention nailed toward SPIRIT rather than where the world puts their attention!
Attention to interpretation rather than SPIRIT is incapable of overpowering testosterone. The law and interpretations of those that never knew ME (never knew Men or SPIRIT) are powerless to do this, but the truth will set you free from the law of sin and death, shame and blame which always leads to an death.
It is far greater to live the love that comes from attention to SPIRIT
Than it is to have the APPEARANCE OF RIGHTNESS that comes from attention to SCRIPTURE and INTERPRETATION
LOVE indeed fulfills all scribbling by Scribes!
But using scripture to understand why it is SPIRIT first and ALL INTERPRETATIONS WILL FAIL let us look at two verses.
First something that so many points in the equation have been left out by burning books etc only leads to confusion
For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the assemblies (churches) of those that truly are saints.
Interpretation always leads to confusion and dissension because it is of the flesh/brain. The SPIRIT has no part in this.
Secondly unless the SPIRIT builds the house the builders labor in vain. From experience again with SPIRIT this is not subject to the interpretations of scripture. We don't begin by accepting a set of interpretations upon which the SPIRIT builds, but we begin completely empty waiting for SPIRIT to do the work through us.
Take the verse used by the interpretation to make Peter the leader of the church.
My experience with SPIRIT reveals that this really says "to Peter" not "of Peter" that the SPIRIT MUST REVEAL EVERYTHING to the individual and this is the rock upon which the SPIRIT begins to build. Not that Peter is the ROCK but that flesh and blood is not the rock but the revelation of SPIRIT apart from all human exception.
Now for last night's story related to this question. We watched "Secrets of Mary Magdalene" on Netflix last night and it shows how so many points overlooked (burned in the early catholic beginnings) reveal many things about those Men who first put together the cannon and left things like the experience of Mary out of it. These further translated the verse about Peter being the rock to mean the church had a leader, but that is not what the SPIRIT says to me. The SPIRIT says to me if Mary Magdalene loved the SPIRIT and therefore her attention/worship to the SPIRIT even through Jesus it resulted in her obtaining revelation from SPIRIT. This was obviously covered up by Men wanting to control thought. The SPIRIT through Jesus knew what they would add and what they would subtract from the writing and therefore it was all who presumptuously follow any interpretation and are not BORN OF THE SPIRIT COMPLETELY that are caught in a net not realizing that GOD would already know this would happen. This is the wide path which the whole world has followed after the image/interpretation of the person/beast/story without SPIRIT.
Experience with SPIRIT is the smallest of points overlooked by all who would interpret with intellect.
