Do you think God created Man in His IMAGE?
But GOD IS NOT A PRIMATE.
According to the OXFORD dictionary, humans and apes are PRIMATES.
According to the BIBLE (Genesis 1: 26-27), God created Man in His IMAGE.
This assertion is grossly disrespectful, for the following reasons:
1- The OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE does not have a physical IMAGE, SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS A SPIRITUAL ENTITY.
2- Reducing God’s “IMAGINARY IMAGE” to the level of a PRIMATE, is EXTREMELY RUDE.
3- UNDERESTIMATING GOD’S INFINITE POWER IS ALSO DISRESPECTFUL. THE OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE CAN CREATE TRILLIONS OF HUMAN BEINGS, IN ONE SECOND, WITHOUT THE NEED TO INCORPORATE THE SIMIAN DNA.
What are your thoughts on this subject?
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
Dear ANOOX readers,
According to WIKIPEDIA, Moses was born in a time when his people, THE ISRAELITES, were an enslaved people.
As we all know, the author of GENESIS WAS MOSES.
As we all know, when GOD CREATED ADAM AND EVE, HE DID NOT CREATE A THIRD HUMAN BEING TO RECORD THE FAMOUS EVENT.
So, who is responsible for the detailed explanation, IN GENESIS?
prophet; You have to be one of the MOST ignorant people on the planet! Use your imagination to understand the properties of what DIVINITY means as it relates to GOD. Of course MOSES was born during the time the ISRAELITES were being enslaved. MOSES was actually COMMISSIONED by the MOST HIGH GOD to lead the ISRAELITES out of Egypt and bondage. MOSES was GOD'S PROPHET from the time he was first commissioned and through DIVINE INSPIRATION and DIRECTION, MOSES set down the first five Books.
Regardless to your RIDICULOUS ASSERTION, MOSES WAS ALIVE, GOD'S PROPHET BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE EXODUS FROM EGYPT! STOP YOUR DELIBERATE STUPIDITY! You are IGNORANT, but you are NOT inherently DUMB!
Obviously, you did not understand my question. i SUGGEST YOU ASK SOMEONE TO HELP YOU WITH BASIC ENGLISH.
Regarding your despicable, and venomous, conduct, I would like to state the following: CIVILITY AND GOOD MANNERS NEVER KILLED ANYBODY. WHEN YOU BEHAVE LIKE A CIVILIZED HUMAN BEING, PEOPLE WILL NOT ASK YOU TO RETURN TO THE JUNGLE, WHERE YOU BELONG.
I will refuse to respond to any comments emanating from you unless you stop behaving like a vicious ape.
When I was a child, my father used to say: "Courtesy and Good Manners, are integral parts of HUMAN DECENCY AND CIVILIZED BEHAVIOR"
When you behave like an uncivilized ruffian, you do not only rubbish yourself, you also rubbish your parents for raising you like a mongrel dog.
A GOOD CHRISTIAN SHOULD ALWAYS BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF CIVILIZED BEHAVIOR AND HUMAN DECENCY. Unfortunately, your mate Berrinton does not believe in those things. AVOID LEPROSY.
I am convinced, prophet - you truly are INSANE! You've GOT some nerve accusing someone of having a "lack of civility and good manners." And if what you call "behaving like a civilized person" means for me to accept your STUPID and "JACKASS" rhetoric. Well, prophet, this isn't 1865 or 1965! And, now, your racist ass has the gull to mention my parents in this. I'll show you "mongrel dog." You have no idea what you have begun!
@Okinawa1985, I advice that you do not take @prophet seriously at all. He is obviously not in his right senses and besides his mental issues, he appears to be suffering from cognitive dissonance i.e when a persons behavior contradicts his beliefs. @ prophet A GOOD CHRISTIAN SHOULD ALWAYS BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF CIVILIZED BEHAVIOR AND HUMAN
DECENCY. The same @prophet I will refuse to respond to any comments emanating from you unless you stop behaving
like a vicious ape,...
... blatant hypocrisy and madness to preach one thing and do another. Besides his hypocrisy, @prophet's actions mirror that of a 4 year old mentally challenged child that hurls insults on people that do not allow him to get his way and as such, he should be treated as such. Because he exhibits immaturity levels that should be frowned at in 4 year olds, please kindly treat him as one. i.e ignore him just as you would ignore a spoilt 4 year old child because he has chosen not to grow.
And if there is anyone behaving like an uncivilized ape, it is him. Like an ape, He is unbridled and unrestrained i.e his actions have proved that he is an animal of instinct that blindly attacks and defends stupid, meaningless and cock and bull ideas instead of reasoning and debating intelligently. He has failed to make a single pertinent point in this debate. The only thing he appears to be good at is hurling insults at others and giving excuses of being busy to reply only to stupidly
return and give more dumb and irrelevant replies. He is clearly not in his right mind and when you argue with a crazy man, people will mistake you for being a crazy person so please refrain from exchanging with him lest people begin to associate you with him and once again do not take his posts seriously at all. You are a delightful unique and blessed creature of God and your uniqueness no man can take from you, not even a mad man.
One final word of advise for @prophet In case you lost your way, this is the christian section of anoox. It isn't an abusive section dedicated to mental patients. So if you are here to hurl insults at others, search elsewhere.
BERRINTON, my friend, Peace to you and Yours! I'm very glad you were able to reply to my previous post, because I personally wanted to apologize to you, MJ and to all reasonable people who share respectful conversation in this forum. I did what I know I should NOT have done - which was reply to prophet's post with intempered anger. He is so obvious.. and NOT even capable of better CODING his racist intents. Can't believe I was foolish enough to fall into his SICKNESS. Peace!
Dear ANOOX readers,
I would like to emphasize two points.
The OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE HAD A COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY OF ADAM AND EVE ON THE DAY THEY WERE CREATED. SO, HE KNEW EXACTLY HOW THEY WOULD BEHAVE FROM THE DAY HE CREATED THEM.
IF GOD HAD INTENDED TO CREATE SUPER SUPER HUMAN ENTITIES, HE WOULD NOT HAVE INCORPORATED THE SIMIAN DNA IN THEIR GENES
Dear ANOOX readers,
I was going to mention this biblical contradiction earlier, but I delayed action in case someone else picked it.
According to GEN 1:24-27 GOD CREATED THE ANIMALS BEFORE MAN.
However, when you go to GEN 2:7,19 you will read that GOD CREATED MAN BEFORE THE ANIMALS! CONFUSED? I AM NOT SURPRISED. THE BIBLE IS FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS. IF YOU DO NOT BELIEVE ME, PLEASE GOOGLE: BIBLICAL CONTRADICTIONS.
Dear ANOOX readers,
I sincerely believe that WITH THE ADVENT OF THE INTERNET, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR IGNORANCE.
If the truth does not scare you to death, I suggest you go to WIKIPEDIA AND CLICK:
CHRISTIAN MYTHOLOGY IS THE BODY OF MYTHS ASSOCIATED WITH CHRISTIANITY.
prophet, I agree, "WITH THE ADVENT OF THE INTERNET, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR
IGNORANCE".. except for my MOST ignorant one - THE ONE WHO REMAINS PURPOSEFULLY IGNORANT! If you notice, from 1:24-27, Moses speaks of the ACTUAL CREATION first, then moves into the completeness thereof at 2:7, by "blowing the breath of life" into him. Man (the actual creation) remained dormant up til then, but he had already been created before being placed into the GARDEN. The same applied to the animals, IN ORDER!
Dear "Okinawa 1985",
According to famous BRITISH AUTHOR, AND THEOLOGIAN, PROFESSOR FRANCESCA STAVRAKOPOULOU, MOSES NEVER EXISTED. AS A CONSEQUENCE, EXODUS NEVER TOOK PLACE. Furthermore, THE RED SEA WAS NEVER PARTED, THE TEN COMMANDMENTS WERE WRITTEN BY A PHANTOM, AND GENESIS WAS NEVER RECORDED BY MOSES BECAUSE THERE WERE NO HUMAN BEINGS TO RECORD THE FAMOUS EVENT. TO GET MORE INFORMATION ON THIS SUBJECT, PLEASE GOOGLE: FRANCESCA STAVRAKOPOULOU.
Prophet, both you and that famous British Author can DREAM the Great DREAM together. If Moses never existed then for sure, neither did Cleopatra, Julius Caesar, or Alexander the Great. Believe what you desire. Read and accept what you desire. Stay IGNORANT or advance into ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE. Your promotion against 4,000 year old scriptures only appeals to the MORE IGNORANT who are likewise caught up in the world of the MISINFORMED! Peace..
Also, Prophet, allow me to give you a history lesson. Moreover, since you deal only in the skepticism of religion, to a riddle may you find a better understanding. That riddle being: It involves Egyptian chronology and the Amalikites who once ruled the mighty Egyptian empire. However, you must begin with NOAH'S line. Hints: In Hebrew Egypt is called 'Mestraim' and Ham (son of Noah) begat Aeguptos and, of course, 'Mestraim'. Since you fancy yourself as all knowing, begin with
Cont'd>> the portions I have given you. Find the truth, then give it to that famous Author you so proudly speak of. But I know you won't, because you are one who lives to be in opposition with those who are not as gullible as you. You are part of the 'spiritually dead' thinking only of world you live in along with the other misinformed!
If you wish to live like a FIRST CENTURY HUMAN BEING, THAT IS YOUR PREROGATIVE, IF YOU WISH TO IGNORE THE INFORMATION YOU CAN GET FROM THE INTERNET, THAT IS ALSO YOUR BUSINESS. If you wish to ignore the credentials of famous BRITISH AUTHOR AND THEOLOGIAN PROFESSOR FRANCESCA STAVRAKOPOULOU, and believe in BIBLICAL FAIRY TALES, THAT IS ALSO YOUR BUSINESS; BUT PLEASE, DO NOT SPEND THE REST OF YOUR LIFE BEHAVING LIKE AN IGNORANT APE.
John Romer, prophet, whoever or whatever you are.. I suggest you keep your poorly CODED racist remarks to yourself. I find it so amazing how someone like yourself, someone I thought was simply IGNORANT, actually has turned out to be just plain STUPID and DUMB. Moreover, I find you to be a LITTLE BOY trying to play MR INTELLIGENT in a GROWN UP world of truly intelligent people. For sure, you are truly UNINTELLIGENT and JUST PLAIN STUPID and DUMB. I can learn nothing important from you. I'm OUT!
The Greek Philosopher Socrates once said the following: "IF THE TRUTH HURTS YOU, DO NOT BLAME OTHERS; BLAME YOURSELF."
Please do not make false accusations like your mate Mr BERRINTON.
WHEN MY BELIEFS WERE QUESTIONED, BY AN AN0OX MEMBER, 3 YEARS AGO, I STATED THAT I BELIEVE IN ONLY ONE RACE. I CALL IT "THE HUMAN RACE".
UNLIKE YOU, AND Mr BERRINTON, I UPHOLD 100 ETHICAL RULES. HOW MANY ETHICAL RULES DO YOU, AND YOUR MATE, UPHOLD?
Dear ANOOX readers,
I would like to emphasize two points.
The OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE HAD A COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY OF ADAM AND EVE ON THE DAY THEY WERE CREATED. SO, HE KNEW EXACTLY HOW THEY WOULD BEHAVE FROM THE DAY HE CREATED THEM.
IF GOD HAD INTENDED TO CREATE SUPER SUPER HUMAN ENTITIES, HE WOULD NOT HAVE INCORPORATED THE SIMIAN DNA IN THEIR GENES
There is no SIMIAN DNA in humans! The idea of such comes from the non-believers of human science and biology. Your statement, I would presume, is based on your own acceptance of such science. If you read carefully the Book of Genesis, more specifically thereat 1:25 and 1:26, and you'll discover the "SIMIAN" which would have been part of the 'wild beast' Created by GOD were separate from the 'man' which GOD Created in HIS image, an image which goes beyond the physical and spiritual
With the advent of the INTERNET, THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR IGNORANCE.
All the words and statements I have made, can be verified SCIENTIFICALLY ON THE INTERNET. For your information, CHIMPS AND BONOBOS SHARE ABOUT 98% OF OUR SIMIAN DNA, THANKS TO THE CREATION OF ADAM AND EVE.
Please stop reading BIBLICAL FAIRY TALES, AND START READING SCIENTIFIC FACTS THAT BELONG TO OUR CENTURY.
I OMITTED TO MENTION THAT THE AUTHOR OF "GENESIS" NEVER EXISTED, ACCORDING TO THEOLOGIANS, PROFESSORS, AND RELIGIOUS AUTHORS! AS A CONSEQUENCE, THE EPIC "EXODUS" NEVER TOOK PLACE; AND THE FAMOUS "PARTING OF THE RED SEA" IS PURE FICTION!
IF YOU REQUIRE MORE INFORMATION ON PROVEN BIBLICAL FAIRY TALES, PLEASE SEND ME AN E-MAIL, AND i WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE TITLES OF THE RELEVANT BOOKS.
prophet, since this particular forum is for the exchange of Christian and Biblical ideas, I'm interested in why you've elected to share your STUPID and mimicked points of view? Truth is, you believe what you read, then criticize others for doing the same. IGNORANCE? How INTELLIGENT are you to participate in a religious exchange you neither believe in nor UNDERSTAND? Since you insist on acting like a Jackass.. here's a riddle for you.. it goes like this:
Also, DUMB DUMB, READ THIS: A new report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that the common value of >98% similarity of DNA between chimp and humans is incorrect.1 Roy Britten, author of the study, puts the figure at about 95% when insertions and deletions are included. Importantly, there is much more to these studies than people realize.
Cont'd>> The >98.5% similarity has been misleading because it depends on what is being compared. There are a number of significant differences that are difficult to quantify. A review by Gagneux and Varki2 described a list of genetic differences between humans and the great apes. The differences include ‘cytogenetic differences, differences in the type and number of repetitive genomic DNA and transposable elements, abundance and
Cont'd>> distribution of endogenous retroviruses, the presence and extent of allelic polymorphisms, specific gene inactivation events, gene sequence differences, gene duplications, single nucleotide polymorphisms, gene expression differences, and messenger RNA splicing variations
Also, DUMB DUMB.. Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes while chimpanzees have 24. Which, in my unintelligent mind references a distinct difference between human and SIMIAN. At the end of each chromosome is a string of repeating DNA sequences called a telomere. Chimpanzees and other apes have about 23 kilobases (a kilobase is 1,000 base pairs of DNA) of repeats. Humans are unique among primates with much shorter telomeres only 10 kilobases long.
Now, prophet.. get this: While 18 pairs of chromosomes are ‘virtually identical’, chromosomes 4, 9 and 12 show evidence of being ‘remodeled.’5 In other words, the genes and markers on these chromosomes are not in the same order in the human and chimpanzee. Instead of ‘being remodeled’ as the evolutionists suggest, these could, logically, also be intrinsic differences because of a separate creation.
The Y chromosome in particular is of a different size and has many markers that do not line up between the human and chimpanzee. Scientists have prepared a human-chimpanzee comparative clone map of chromosome 21 in particular. They observed ‘large, non-random regions of difference between the two genomes.’ They found a number of regions that ‘might correspond to insertions that are specific to the human lineage. So please, prophet, get your FACTS straight.
Whenever some readers disagree with my POSTS AND COMMENTS, i am not surprised. According to WIKIPEDIA (CHRISTIAN DENOMINATIONS), CHRISTIANITY IS THE MOST DIVIDED RELIGION IN THE WORLD.
prophet: Fact is, Wikipedia is correct. The Christian (Concept) of Religion is the MOST divided among the worldly religions. Yet, there's another indisputable fact among them.. they all believe in GOD and they all believe that MAN is a separate CREATION from not only your SIMIANS but from all animals. Even if your 98% belief had not been defunct, it still wouldn't change the FACT of separate and distinct Creation between the two.. Mankind & SIMIAN!
God is a spirit which is an entity we can only image, but that spirit gives us an objective to know right and wrong. God want man (male and female) who wants to be with God, so he came us free choice. Once Eve disbelieved and disobeyed God what is not mention much is Eve and Adam had no faith in Gods word. So in order to get save and to be in God's image you must Believe in God Word and that he is a rewarder of those who seek Him.You will not find your answer in the physical but in the spritiual.
To the extent that a mutually agreeable understanding of the term “image’ indicates something OTHER than God, man is declared in scripture to have been created accordingly. Just as a photograph bears a facsimile a person, the actual picture is NOT the actual person, but a mere reflection. Stars and moons have no intrinsic light, but merely reflect the light of the sun. So man was created to reflect the ‘light’ of God – often referred to as the ‘spark’ of divinity. Sparks emit from a fire, but they are NOT the fire. Scripture declares that ONLY Christ had the ‘fullness’ of God. To the rest of humanity God has given His Spirit ‘by measure’. What exact characteristics (or ‘parts’) of God He placed within humanity is uncertain. But it is NOT a physical replication as natural offspring receive (although the human form may well be like God) as much as a spiritual sense of the eternal. It refers to the soul of humanity that is unique among the rest of life.
Man alone processes the ability to attain eternal life. While it remains that not ALL men will (some shall perish) – still God has created ALL men with the possibility of eternal life to be determined by their free-will choice to believe or not. The ‘image’ of God relates more to man’s God-given ability to communicate with God, than to a formal representation of a physical form belonging to God. Sound is thought of as something we hear.
But modern scientific discoveries (Cymatics) have produced visible ‘sound waves’. That which formerly could only be heard – can now be seen as well! Within the SAME wonder of the ‘miraculous’, God in the beginning created through His ‘WORD’ both the ability for man to hear & see enough of God’s ‘image’ to communicate with Him on a personal level. In the simplest of explanations - Christ is God "in the flesh'. He said, "if you've seen me, you've seen the Father" - Jn. 14:7.
A further, broader understanding of the intended use of the term ‘image’ is as a likeness: mentally, morally, and socially. Mentally, man was created as a rational, volitional agent having free-will. Morally, man was created in righteousness and perfect innocence, a reflection of God’s holiness. Socially, man was created for fellowship – a reflection of God's triune nature and His love. Unfortunately Adam chose to exchange this for a lie. As God created everything 'GOOD", Adam's
choice created the curse every offspring of his has been born under since. The remedy was also since the beginning - God the Savior would redeem us from the curse. The remedy? You MUST be born again - Jn. 3.
AMEN, MJ! In the latter segment of your post, because of ADAM'S SIN, GOD was the enmity place between He (Christ) and (he, Satan) thus Christ would only be "bruised in the heel" by Satan, but Satan would be "bruised in head" by Christ. For Christ, it would be only a temporary blow - but for Satan it will eventually mean total destruction. Thank you MJ, and Peace to you and yours!
Mj as always, brilliant. You are very correct. The spark is not the fire. The moon is not the sun. The moon is merely the reflector or mirror of the illumination of the sun. It is a receptacle of light or a recipient of the 'piercing' rays of the sun. In the same way, man is/was "not" God. Man was intended as the reflector or the radiator of the intelligence or light of God. Like you rightly observed, a photograph bears a facsimile a person, the actual picture is NOT the actual person. It ..
..is a projection of the likeness of an actual person on a piece of paper using light (photo means light graph means draw or write) In the same way, the image of God is a projection/expression/drawing/illustration of God's light or nature inside the heart's of men. You are also correct when you say "choice created the curse every offspring of his has been born under..." The Bible tells us in Ecc 7:29 "God made man upright, but they have "sought out" many devices"..
The freewill (or choice) that God gives to man could be likened to the Maker/creator of a cellphone who after creating it urges its users to avoid putting them inside water in order for them to function well. Those that "choose" to obey the makers instructions will have their cellphones functioning as they were intended by the creator. Those that choose to disobey and put their phones inside water would not be able to use their cellphones in the way that the maker intended.
Wouldn't it be ridiculous if the users who put the phone inside water decide to blame the maker of the phone for the malfunctioning phones? In order for the phone to function properly (i.e the phone to bear the image or original intention of its creator), the user "must" use it in the way that the maker intended it to be used. In the same way, in order to bear God's image, we "must" of our own freewill keep away from everything that leads us astray from God. The phone was not intended for...
..water. It was intended to be kept away from water. In the same way, man was not created to sin, be selfish and rebel against God's will/commands. He was intended to deny himself of his own desires and follow God's will. So unlike eve, who followed the sight of her eyes and "her" own desires we must deny ourselves and follow the will of our Maker.
Dear Messrs Thompson and Berrinton,
Thank you for your comments.
Unfortunately, the authors of the Bible were not fully aware that GOD IS MORE THAN OMNIPOTENT. HE IS ALSO GENDERLESS, OMNIPRESENT, OMNIFIC, OMNIPERCIPIENT, RIGHTEOUS, INFALLIBLE, PERFECT AND ETERNAL.
ON THE DAY WE ARE BORN, GOD HAS A COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY OF OUR LIFE. THAT IS BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW, AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.
NEEDLESS TO SAY, GOD KNEW ADAM'S AMD CHRIST'S BIO.
prophet..(continued). COMPLETE BIOGRAPHY from the day they were created.
The fact that we are four thousand years more advanced than them, does not make them stupid. They simply lacked the knowledge we have today. WE CANNOT USE THAT, AS AN EXCUSE TO UNDERESTIMATE THE INFINITE POWER OF THE OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF TH E UNIVERSE. NEITHER SHOULD WE BE AFRAID TO RECTIFY A LOT OF FAIRY TALES THAT EXIST IN THE BIBLE.
MJ we were created in God's image and thus we are also able to create, as God said nothing is impossible for man. Jesus said if we had the faith we could move mountains. Man is the only animal I know that can have faith and the faith to change hearts, circumstances and heal. Some (even on this site has no comprehension of what the Holy Spirit is all about) which is to lead us into all TRUTH and that started with with the Old Testament. While we were created in God's image we have to learn.
We have to learn to believe in God by faith that God is our creator and that He is a rewarder of that faith. The reward(s) are on earth and in heaven. Just as man teaches his children it the ways of man so the Holy Spirit leads us into the Truth of Jesus/God. It isn't a fairy tale, it is life and death.
@prophet Its clear that you are attempting to mold the image of God into your own image. What you don't understand i.e that which does not appeal/make sense to you, you call fairy tales & that which appeals to you, is acceptable. You may not realize it but your claim that the Bible's claim that man was made in God's image is a 'fairy tale' calls the whole Bible into question because you are indirectly telling us that the Bible is subject to error and if it is, then why do you still...
..hold unto its teachings? Why dont you just dismiss the whole Bible instead of playing a game of here a little or there a little. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. So stop stalling between two opinions. Its either the Bible is true or the Bible is false. Cognitive dissonance: When your beliefs contradict your actions. e.g The Bible is a bunch of fairy tales but I still believe the claims of that same Bible that Christ and Adam existed.
Finally, your statement "he fact that we are four thousand years more advanced than them, does not make them
stupid. They simply lacked the knowledge we have today.." shows that you are ignorant of the eternal nature of God. The truths of God are not timely i.e geared into time. They are eternal, they rise above time and they will be forever true. The truths that applied to Adam, applied to david, applied to paul and apply to us today and will apply in the year 3000 because God doesnt change.
(mal 3:6) It is men that change. The children of God throughout all the ages dont deal with timely truths that are subject to change. They deal with eternal and unchanging truths that are applicable to men of all ages, at all times and in all places. So the knowledge available to Paul is available to us today (in Christ Jesus) so we are not more advanced or less advanced than them. We posses the same wisdom that they possessed.
Dear Messsrs Berrinton and Thompson,
Whenever people disagree with my POSTS or Comments, I am not surprised.
According to WIKIPEDIA (the Christian Denominations), CHRISTIANITY IS THE MOST DIVIDED RELIGION IN THE WORLD! VERY FEW CHRISTIANS, JEWS, OR MUSLIMS, ARE AWARE OF ALL THE ATTRIBUTES OF THE OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE.
As I mentioned earlier, GOD KNOWS EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST, EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING NOW, AND EVERYTHING THAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE.
In other words, when we are born, God has a complete BIOGRAPHY OF OUR LIFE
This wonderful ATTRIBUTE WAS USED WHEN ADAM DISOBEYED GOD, WHEN EVE TEMPTED ADAM, WHEN JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED, WHEN CAIN MURDERED ABEL, AND WHEN HUNDREDS OF FAIRY TALES WERE RECORDED IN THE BIBLE.
All my posts are viewed by thousands of members of "THE STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN" BEFORE THEY ARE CLEARED FOR PUBLICATION.
Prophet, if what you say with regards to GOD knowing everything of your future, AT BIRTH even, then why has HE granted us FREE WILL? Perhaps there's even MORE into the "Omnipotent" POWERS of GOD that MOST are willing accept like NOT wanting to know things whenever HE so chooses. Peace!
@prophet Only the complacent use divisions as an excuse to cling unto falsehood.There are many opinions but there is one truth. When Jesus asked HIS disciples who do men say that I am, they answered some say Jeremiah, some Elijah and some say one of the Prophets. Some people even called him a devil and a mad person (John 7:20, 10:20). No one can know the identity of Christ except as it is revealed by the Holy Spirit.(1 cor 12:3) meaning all our opinions (i.e divisions) about Christ are wrong
..unless as they are inspired by the Holy Spirit. When Students in the "same" school, in the "same" class who were tutored the "same" thing at the "same" time by the "same" teacher are examined based on what they were taught by their teacher(s), they always give out "different" results because they assimilated the same thing they were taught differently. But their different answers would be judged by "one" standard: What they were taught by their teacher. So in order to be correct..
... and pass their exams. students must learn to conform to their teachers standards. In a similar vein, There is one truth and we must conform to his standard if we want to live and know the truth as it is. If we cling to our own way, i.e our own understanding of Him, we will die and remain in ignorance. Finally, in reality there is nothing like a Christian religion. Christ did not come to found a new religion. He came to show us the way to the Father which is Himself. He came to give us...
...life real life, eternal life that is by far superior to the biological life and its lust which we are experiencing (enslaved to) right now. This is his eternal mission in all ages, at all times and in all places and it applies to all men in every place living in all ages whether they be in russia, the us or australia or china. You appear to be plagued by cognitive dissonance. You who claims that the Bible's claim in Gen 1 that man was made in God's image is a fairy tale..
..is the same person who is using the same 'fairy tale' Genesis account to justify your argument "WAS USED WHEN ADAM DISOBEYED GOD," "WHEN CAIN MURDERED ABEL,. You are a bunch of contradictions one minute you say Genesis account is a fairy tale and the next minute you contradict yourself by upholding the same genesis account and for your information, Eve didn't (intend to) tempt Adam.The serpent beguiled (tempted) Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. Eve only shared the fruit she taught ..
Dear "OKINAWA 1985"
The belief that GOD GRANTED FREE WILL TO ALL HUMANS TO BEHAVE LIKE ANIMALS, APES, MASS-MURDERERS AND DESPICABLE, SATANIC, CREATURES IS TOTALLY ILLOGICAL AND MORONIC.
God created Satan to test our integrity. He used SATAN TO TEST CHRIST'S INTEGRITY; ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE. He also used SATAN TO TEST EVE'S INTEGRITY AND ADAM'S INTEGRITY.
TESTING A HUMAN BEING'S INTEGRITY IS NOT THE SAME AS GRANTING F
Dear "OKINAWA 1985" (continued)
Testing a human being's integrity is not the same as granting free will to all humans to behave like despicable creatures. Although GOD KNEW THE RESULTS OF THOSE INTEGRITY TESTS, BEFORE THEY EVEN STARTED, HE LET SATAN DO HIS JOB BECAUSE THAT WAS HIS DUTY.
THE OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE GAVE US A WONDERFUL MENTAL TOOL WE CALL "LOGIC". IF WE USE THIS WONDERFUL TOOL WE WILL NOT BEHAVE LIKE APES.
prophet: The GOD I believe in is always EXACT! "FREE WILL" to HIM means "FREE WILL" and it is NOT limited to your FINITE MIND - or whatever "LOGIC" you choose to impose. At NO TIME have I ever suggested that GOD granted FREE WILL so that we can act in the ways MOST do. What I have tried to intimate is the fact that GOD has granted us "FREE WILL" on an UNCONDITIONAL basis whereby WE have the UNCONDITIONAL choice of acting in whichever ways we desire. However, through
Cont'd>> GOD'S lessons given in scriptures, HE DESIRES that we act in accordance with those lessons given, that we may REAP the REWARDS of such GOOD actions and, therefore, so WE (as non-ROBOTS) may NOT have to face HIS final judgement of the LAKE OF FIRE! Which represents the ABSOLUTE END OF HIS/HER EXISTANCE. If GOD did NOT want it to be so, ask yourself - WOULD the angel who became SATAN have fallen out of grace or even been given the CHANCE to? And whould Adam have become
@prophet You may not realize it, but your posts demonstrate God's freewill. You classify the 'belief' that God gave man the freewill to act in anyway that they like (according to you, to act as apes etc) as " TOTALLY ILLOGICAL AND MORONIC but you fail to realize that you epitomize that 'belief'. You are demonstrating the tendency to disagree with God and see things differently from Him. You are demonstrating a carnal (beastly) tendency that calls God's eternal and unchanging word
..fables and fairytales. Like the serpent in Eden, you are demonstrating a tendency to twist God's words in order to justify your ideology (world view). The Bible tells us in 2 Tim 3:16 that "all" (not some) scripture is God breathed but like the crafty serpent in Eden (who made Eve to think that God was lying: Gen 3:4-5), 'smart' @prophet disagrees and labels the parts of the Bible that are too big for his small mind to grasp as fairytales. You dont need to look to far to see God's freewill..
...in action. "You" are the evidence that God gives man freewill to act like apes, mass murderers etc. You may not realize it but anytime you disagree with God and His Word, you 'murder' His influence in your life (i.e re-crucify Christ: Heb 6:6) and enthrone the falsehood and error of the devil so Yes!!!! anytime you reject God's word, you are a murderer (John 8:44) In God's eyes you are not in anyway better than the mass murderers that you label.
@Golfer Nice commentary. The eyes will always see the things that they want to see. If all you want to see is lies, then all you will see is lies. "We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are." Anais Nin.
I would love to address some of your points before I address your main question
You wrote "The OMNIPOTENT CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE does not have a physical IMAGE, SIMPLY BECAUSE HE IS A SPIRITUAL ENTITY." You are correct when you imply that God does not have a physical image but you must also understand that in God's "original plan" i.e before the fall of man , God did not intend for man to be a mortal (i.e physical) being of flesh and blood. God intended that man should reflect his eternal nature. ...lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live "for ever": Gen 3:22. In his fallen state, Man is mortal i.e physical, temporal because he now reflects the image i.e the knowledge of the tree of sin that he consumed. God is the only truth, the only life and the only reality in the universe so any knowledge that promotes a life and a reality that is not founded on God's eternal nature is a lie.
"This" world order of sin is founded on the lie that there can be a life without God. i.e it is a life founded on a self that is its own god (Gen 3:4-5) or a life independent of God. The Bible tells us that this world passes away. Paul tells us that the things that are seen (physical things) are temporal but the things that are not seen are eternal. This world like all lies must pass away i.e is temporal because it is founded on the lie of the eternal liar satan (John 8:44)..
..which is "you" i.e the self can be god independent of (i.e when you rebel against the will of ) the true God (GEN 3:4-5) The tree of life symbolizes Christ the image of God who we must eat in order to live (i.e partake in his eternal life) Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. John 6:53 "... he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. John 6:58. The tree of knowledge symbolizes sin which gives us the illusion of a life independent of God.
The human i.e the mortal 'life' is really death because it is a life devoid of Christ who is really life.
And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; Eph 2:1
We must die (symbolically on the cross of Christ) to this life in order to inherit the real life, Jesus Christ and thus bear his eternal image which our progenitors reflected before the fall.
For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. Col 3:3
And have put on the "new man", which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him: Col 3:10
You wrote : Reducing God’s “IMAGINARY IMAGE” to the level of a PRIMATE, is EXTREMELY RUDE. You appear to be overlooking the fact that man "no longer" reflects God's image as a result of the fall
In the original creation plan of God, man was created in the image of God (Gen 1:26) but man "fell" into sin and as a result of his fall into sin,..
sin, he "now" reflects the fallen image of the forbidden tree of the knowledge of good and evil and this image is passed on from generation to generation
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his "own" likeness, and after "his" image; and called his name Seth: Gen 5:3 (notice the emphasis on own and his. Adam passed his own fallen image to his son)
so whether white chinese, indian greek australian american or jew we are all mini reflections of the adam that..
...we originated from.
Now to the main question,Do you think God created Man in His IMAGE? Yes He did!!!!! but man fell into sin and now (i.e in his fallen unrepentant state) bears the image of sin and satan i.e the fallen image that he inherited from his progenitors.
As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: 1 Cor 15:48
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do...John 8:44
And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his "own" likeness, and after "his" image; and called his name Seth: Gen 5:3 (notice the emphasis on own and his. Adam passed his own fallen image to his son and the same process keeps repeating itself. Unless we are reborn of Christ, We are all mini expressions of Adam our fallen father)
Like the moon, man is a receiver/reflector of spirit i.e man is a mirror of consciousness that is enthroned within him. We either reflect the image of God (when we are reborn of Christ) or the image of satan who adam and eve obeyed (John 8:44) Jesus tells us he that sees you sees me (Luke 10:16) he told the jews you do that which you see of your father (John 8:38) We are mirrors of consciousness and the gateway for the world to see either satan or Jesus
The BIBLE IS REGARDED, BY MILLIONS OF JEWS AND CHRISTIANS, AS THE WORD OF GOD. When the HOLY BOOK FEATURES AN INCREDIBLE FAIRY TALE ABOUT GOD CREATING THE PRIMATES IN HIS IMAGE, WE SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED THAT SO MANY PEOPLE BECOME ATHEISTS.
Firstly, the Bible doesn't teach that Primates were made in GOD'S IMAGE, only mankind! People become atheists through wanting and being unwilling to accept an invisible power with GREATER thought than their own. They choose not to be beholding or sub-servant to such a power.
@prophet Its a free world. People are allowed to become atheists if they choose to. God will never change or lower His standards in order to appeal to men. John 6:60 makes us understand that many of the disciples grumbled because of the hard (to understand) sayings of Jesus that did not go down well with them and John 6:66 tells us that :"From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. So it aint gonna make the headlines if people become atheists because...
...the things of God do not make sense to them. The Bible tells us that the natural man does not receive the things of the spirit of God for they are foolishness to Him. The wisdom of God is always foolishness to the carnal man and he will reject and fight it with all his might. There are guidelines that must be followed in order for all the technological devices that the children of men make to function properly. That's why devices have operational manuals. In the same way, God's
....creation reflects God when "it follows God's standards. We were originally created in God's image but in order to keep reflecting God's nature, God required that we didnt seek our own selfish desire. But we did (i.e we went against the creators operational manual) and of course we "malfunctioned" or stopped reflecting His image.
Greetings, Everyone - and Peace to YOU and YOURS! IMAGE is indeed "reflective" even the IMAGE of an atheist! The atheist "reflects doubt in GOD" only to find him/herself frustrated to the REAL points of logic which asks, "If my way.. why not GOD?" After all, if HUMAN logic is what the ATHEIST depends on, and it is, of course, then if the UNIVERSE just suddenly appeared, on its own, or due to some INEXPLICABLE thing.. Why Not GOD! In the end, the ATHEIST creates his/her
Cont'd>> own EXPLINATIONS for such a GREAT phenomenon. And to keep his/her level of individual reasoning in tact, the ATHEIST fights any possibility of his/her reasoning may NOT be the MOST inteligent answer to this MOST extraordinary, UNIVERSAL occurance! But the believer of GOD, the 'true' believer, has opened his/her mind to the reason of possibilities beyond his/her own mental finiteness. He/she knows the UNIVERSE continues to expand, only not of its own accord, but
Cont'd>> because GOD, that magnificent POWER, the one no atheist can see nor wants to see, has made the universe to expand, giving the 'true' believer of GOD the awesome satisfaction of resting his/her finite mind in the UNDERSTANDING that GOD, the invisible and MAGNIFICENT POWER which no ATHEIST can see, is responsible for it all. PEACE!
@Okinawa1985 Excellent commentary. We are either conforming to God's image (by being reborn of Christ) or conforming god (or our conception of G(g)od i.e our ideal) into our own image. Like you rightly observed, "the ATHEIST creates his/her own EXPLINATIONS for such a GREAT phenomenon..." Technically there is no such thing as an atheist because all atheists have an ideal i.e a mindset or a god which makes them reject the existence of G(g)od and that mindset is therefore their god..
..because it is the ideal that they cling to. The atheist expects God to be conformed to his own image and because God is too big to be comprehended by his small mind, i.e does not conform to his image or mindset he boasts in his arrogant blindness that G(g)od does not exist without realizing that G(g)od is the power/logic by which he says those words. G(g)od is the logic that governs the inert sons of men. G(g)od is mind. G(g)od is wisdom, logic and intelligence.
The false god or satan is the wisdom of this world which the Bible tells us will come to nought. The true and only God is the wisdom of God Jesus Christ that rules in the heart of his saints.
Finally, What you wrote about the atheists applies to all other belief systems be they false religions, sects, science etc. All false belief systems are an attempt to create and maintain "our own" explications or images/conceptions of God rather than like you put it accept our own mental finiteness..
You are so right, BERRINTON, so very right! For the ATHEIST, it's his NOT believing in GOD, which allows him/her NOT to FEAR Him. And as you and I know, it's with such FEAR that we show the WISDOM GOD desires us to have. The 'true' ATHEIST is content in his/her dis-belief, in their own finite knowledge & logic, that he/she NOT be "BEHOLDING" to something/someone so INVISIBLE to them. Therefore, I suggest that we let them be content, until that day when they DO see HIM! Peace, my friend!
Dear Mr Berrinton,
In September last year, I advised you that I will not read any further comments, emanating from you.
The reasons are as follows: Your extremely numerous comments are tedious, obtuse, insipid, irrelevant, prejudiced, malicious, obsessive, derogatory, offensive, and antagonistic
The principal reason for avoiding to read your voluminous comments is because I am a very busy man
J.R (PLEASE SEE SEQUEL)
I explained all that in plain ENGLISH, ON THREE OCCASIONS. Please refer to ANOOX POST “WHY DID JESUS CALL MARY “woman”.
Normally, I am a very tolerant man. What “blew my fuse”, was your deliberate attempt to “pull the wool over my eyes” by misquoting Christ’s saying: in MATT12:49 See ANOOX POST MENTIONED ABOVE.
I believe that you are the complete ANTITHESIS OF WHAT A GOOD CHRISTIAN SHOULD BE.
While I understand how EMOTIONS can gather through the disagreement of ideas and beliefs, the adjectives you used in describing BERRINTON's comments I do find objectionable and non-associated to his particular character. There is one the words you used I do agree with.. the word - TEDIOUS! More times than not, "tedious" must be followed in order to bring about a reasoning of ideas. Perhaps BERRINTON can explain his meaning in a less than perceived way! Peace!!
@prophet your claim that you wouldnt read my comments because they are tedious is a clear sign that you are not a thorough person and are very complacent towards the things of God. Only lazy and incompetent people give silly excuses like that. Serious and competent people judge others based on the content (not the length) of their argument. Why dont you cease reading the Bible because it a very voluminous book? You reek of hypocrisy..
... Any diligent and truthful person would "never" attack a position based of its length. They would attack because of its content. No serious minded person would take you serious when you are more interested in attacking the length of a person's posts instead of addressing their content and your strategy of referring to comments that expose your lies as derogatory, offensive, etc is not new. The jews called Jesus a devil (John 10:20) Jesus told the Nicodemus "For every one that doeth..
evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. John 3:20
There must always be a violent reaction when the truth is laid bare to those that cling unto lies so your reaction aint gonna make the headlines and I am in no way surprised that you made those claims.
And if my claims are so irrelevant, then why waste your time replying to them? Practice what you preach. Why waste your time replying to 'irrelevant' comments? Id rather be 'obsessive' for the ..
Dear Mr Berrinton,
i recently had a very interesting conversation with a new member of my Spiritual Organization, who happens to be a Professor of Psychology.
When I mentioned the hassles I have been having with an obsessed member of Anoox, he showed great interested, and promised to help me with professional advice.
I enclose his reply for your perusal.
Dear Mr Romer,
Psychologists can obtain a lot of useful information by listening to what their patients have to say; or studying thoroughly, various documents containing the thoughts, views, and aspirations of their patients.
Having read many, voluminous comments written by Mr Berrinton, I have deduced the following:
A person who needs to type dozens of comments, whenever he wishes to express a simple view, is, indubitably, mentally unbalanced.
Mr Berrinton wrote the following “PROVISO” in one of his venomous comments: “IF Mr ROMER IS UNABLE TO PROVE THAT MY ACCUSATION IS FALSE, HIS SILENCE WILL BE REGARDED AS AN ADMISSION OF GUILT!
This illogical, and evil, stipulation, convinced me that Mr Berrinton requires regular treatment in a MENTAL HOSPITAL.
Mr Berrinton’s voluminous comments reveal all the classic signs of a person who suffers from DELUSIOINS OF GRANDEUR.
He often uses his voluminous comments as a sinister weapon to smother, intimidate, defame,
belittle, confuse, harass, and ridicule ANOOX MEMBERS who belong to other DENOMINATIONS. When this “avalanche” of venomous comments is dumped on the people he dislikes, Mr Berrinton is jubilant, and elated. His victory makes him feel IMPORTANT, NOBLE. POWERFUL, ERUDITE AND SPECIAL.
He feels llike a four star general who won a major battle!
I often wondered why Mr BERRINTON HATES MR JOHN ROMER SO MUCH.
The reason is actually very simple. Mr Romer believes in LOGICAL AND RATIONAL THINKING. These normal traits are anathema to Mr Berrinton who lives in a FANTASY WORLD WHERE ALL THE PROTAGONISTS, HEROES, AND PLEBEIANS, ARE
ILLOGICAL AND IRRATIONAL PEOPLE LIKE HIM.
On the tenth of September 2016, Mr Berrinton proved to everybody that he is a BOGUS CHRISTIAN, A PATHOLOGICAL LIAR, AND A DECEIVER; WHEN HE DELIBERATELY, UNASHAMEDLY, AND SACRILEGIOUSLY; MISQUOTED JESUS. THE DETAILS OF THIS INFAMOUS AND DISGRACEFUL EPISODE ARE AVAILABLE ON
THE ANOOX ARTICLE TITLED: “WHY DID JESUS CALL MARY ‘WOMAN’?
Mr Berrinton will bear the mark of Satan, on his forehead, until JUDGEMENT DAY.
Dear Mr Romer, (continued)
I do not think that MODERN SCIENCE, QUALIFIED PSYCHOLOGISTS, AND EXPERIENCED PSYCHIATRISTS, can fully restore Mr Berrinton’s DELAPIDATED SANITY.
What he desperately needs, is a genuine EXORCIST, LIKE JESUS CHRIST, TO EXPEL ALL THE EVIL DEMONS THAT RESIDE IN HIS SATANIC BRAIN.
@prophet Lol why did it take you so long to reply to my posts despite the fact that you replied to @okinawa1985 recently? Was it because you felt that after a while, I was gonna forget about replying to you? If that was the case, then you are a dreamer. Youve gotta man up and face facts and stop being a chicken by playing hide and seek games and your latest rants make it pretty obvious that you are the one who is desperately in need of a psychiatrist. Your actions mirror Stacey..
Keach, a Character in the movie the 9th configuration who is a patient in a mental hospital, but thinks he's the Head Psychiatrist and that is the reason why you cant seem to see the insanity of behind your posts. It is pretty clear to anyone with an iota of sanity that your actions do not reflect a sane, normal and balanced being who has the mental capacity to debate intelligently and as usual , because you are an obstinate empty-head, you are all noise and no substance.
You make all sort of accusations but as usual, you have no proof to back up your allegations. You claim that in Sept 2016, I misqouted Jesus, why didn't you post a quote of how I misquoted Jesus to back up your claims? Of course, the answer is obvious, you know that you have no point so you are desperately trying to cook up false claims in order to 'dress up' your exposed 'nakedness' (the emptiness of your argument)
Grow up @prophet, your profile claims you are 63 but you keep acting like a spoilt 4 year old baby that labels everything and everyone when he doesnt get his way. Resorting to calling name and claiming that the people who expose the stupidity of your argument need psychiatrists is not the solution to your problem, in fact it is the chain that is keeping you in your problem. Pride keeps you in a mental prison of deception and it will lead you to nowhere but hell if you do not discard it
Besides, like Ive stated many times across anoox, your strategy of hurling insults and claiming that people that expose you have demons in their satanic brain isnt a new strategy and it didn't come as a surprise to me. Jesus was called a devil because he was the light that exposed the hypocrisy of the Jews (John 7:20,10:20) The fire of God's truth is revealing your emptiness and instead of you to humbly accept it, you react with hatred because you hate the light (John 3:19)
and for your information, berrinton doesnt hate @prophet. Why would I hate you? I haven't met you before. I dont know what you look like and you are not the only one who has contrary views. I do not agree with "everything" that @Okinawa1985 believes in so why didnt he claim that i hate him? I only expose the stupidity of your argument to you in the hope that you may come to your senses and repent.
He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue Prov 28:23
Besides your statement " Mr Romer believes in LOGICAL AND RATIONAL THINKING." shows why you remain in spiritual deception. The logic is ego inspired foolishness. Logical and rational thinking will take you to nowhere but hell only spiritual thinking inspired by the Spirit of God will admit you into heaven. i.e the presence of God.
BERRINTON, my friend, Peace to you and yours! After posting with you over many many months, I believe I have learned some important qualities you possess. One particular quality you have, is your sincere love for GOD. Another, is your willingness to share the belief you have in GOD and our Lord Jesus Christ, thoroughly in content and your willingness to give it. Needless to say, we do not always agree, totally! On the other hand, I feel your desire to keep an open
Cont'd>> mind is genuine, which makes me desire to hear more, and to do my own evaluations and researchs into the information you willingly provide. And because I know how generous you are in providing information, complete with reasonable mediphores from time to time, I have to say that I can't help but feel you do yourself, me and other true believers a dis-service by trying to explain yourself to someone like (prophet) who has such low regard for any other person's
Cont'd>> beliefs but his own, as well as his imaginary Psychologist. I perceive (prophet) as someone desiring intelligence. Not able to advance in understanding of scriptures, he attacks them and those acknowledging an understanding of them. Being quite lonely in his disbelief in GOD, he rationalizes all things of HIM, and because of his limited "scriptural" LEARNING ability, he suggests all who don't agree with his points of view are some how in GREAT need
Cont'd>> of Clinical help, when in fact, it turns out to be him in such need. I have a suggestion, one you have offered to me from time to time. Just Pray for him! Perhaps some day, maybe before he's 64 - he won't feel quite as lonely!
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: ..Prov 9:8
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you Matt 7:6
@Okinawa1985 Thanks a lot for your elderly and wise advise. You are right. Not worth it at all. Even the Bible says that the ears that hear the reproof of wise abides with the wise and that we shouldn't answer not a fool according to his folly, lest we be like unto him.
Sometimes I get so passionate that I get carried away from realizing that the fact that the acceptance of truth is not for everyone. Im sorry for the disservice and once again, I really appreciate your advise.
And of course, you are right. He is the one in need of clinical help. One of the symptoms of people with mental issues is that they live in constant denial by projecting their problem unto others instead of facing themselves . There is a saying that goes : The day you realize that you are crazy is the day that you will be healed. His failure to realize his problem is the reason why he projects it unto others. He ought to have done the noble and humble thing by confessing to his psychologist
