“To you has been given the secret of the kingdom of God, but for those outside, everything comes in parables; in order that “they may indeed look, but not perceive, and may indeed listen, but not understand.”- Mark 4:11-12 (NRSV)
Do you ever read scripture and feel perplexed? I do. And, this scripture happens to be one of those. What do you do at times like this? I often start talking with the scripture. In talking with this scripture I tend to hear; “communication for you is totally impossible with either the you or the those.” First, am I a you or a those? I hope I am a YOU! Therefore, I know and understand the secrets of God’s kingdom. Now, how do I identify the those? Seemly, anyone outside the Kingdom of God. They sure have a comprehensible problem wouldn’t you say?
