This is how religious philosophy/theology is handled. Profound truths are revealed as they are discovered or unveiled. And that revelation is passed on from generation to generation.
“Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.
V4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty works.”
God bless those who endeavor to pass the baton with power, authority and integrity.
As each generation comes along, they/we must weed through what the previous generation discovered and gleam the gold and silver off the top and put it “on top” in our mind, and push down and away all that is dross, (the impurities).
Each generation of men and women accumulate rules, ordinances & precepts that fit their needs, times, circumstances & culture. They sometimes move away from the original intent that God designed. When this happens, religion is borne.
It is this constant cycle that each of us is faced with that we must overcome.
Can you transcend the cycle that births complacency in your worship and endorses ignorance through vain repetition?
