"One More Tiresome Apologia that Redeems itself Somehow in the Process."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I hesitate to do this, especially since I mentioned it recently but... maybe I've never explained certain things exhaustively enough? Right off the bat, I KNOW that no matter how much you explain something to certain people, it WILL NOT take. There are reasons for this. One reason is that they are stupid, or chronically fixated; same thing. This is the case with religious fundies. Another reason is that they DON'T WANT TO UNDERSTAND. Their point is harassment, period. Another reason is that understanding you is not the cardinal issue. They prefer that you understand them. They want to be doing what you do but they are not equipped to the task so, metaphorically speaking, they believe that if they come into the room where you are speaking and speak at the same time that you are speaking, they will have become your equal, or perhaps be mistaken for you. It is a little like air guitar, karaoke and lip syncing, all at the same time.

Recently I had someone say that I did not have children and so I did not understand; attended by a slur, which said, “Well, none that you know of.” I disabused this person about my offspring and this was summarily ignored and the statement repackaged like one of those bundles of toxic housing loans that our banks sold off overseas in the previous decade. Then another person took a statement I made and restructured it, until it bore no resemblance to what I had said and then accused me of saying it. I took exception to this and correctly pointed out that it then delegitimized everything they had said. It was similar to what is called the 'fruit of the poisoned tree', concerning evidence obtained illegally and all following evidence is then tainted as well. This person assumed a kind of, “so what?” posture and went on to; “then what about this? And this? And this?”

Another person called Lady Nature a bitch because she was ignoring the cries of some child somewhere for a bowl of rice. This is a metaphorical child. I am not saying this child did not exist but if this person was familiar with the child, the child would have been fed and no longer crying. Right? When I hear things like that, it doesn't move me a wit. I do find it rather coincidental that I had just been talking about KARMA. I had mentioned, “as you sow so shall ye reap.” Similar has been stated or echoed by other great souls in greater states of grace than I. It is an inflexible law, so it stands to reason that the squalling child had likely denied some other child a bowl of rice in some earlier time. Karma is surgically precise and does indeed operate to “the last jot and tittle”. The thing is, people are not satisfied that there are laws in this universe. They are even more outraged that the laws do not perform as they, in their omniscience, feel that they should.

Of course, should I encounter that child, I would give it a bowl of rice, regardless of any previous crimes. There are countries where a good portion of the residents look upon suffering as the result of Karma and pass right on by. I do not operate like that BUT... I know what the law is. Some people do not like the timeless poetry of existence. Quite often, people are angry because their lives are not what they had hoped it would be and they need someone to blame. They cannot blame themselves because; how could it possibly be their fault?

What I am getting at here is that you cannot win with people of these types. For a much longer time than I should have, I used to try to reason with the unreasonable. It got me nowhere. Then I evolved into artfully crafted insult. This didn't work either but it did give some satisfaction. Then I started telling people to take what was useful and ignore the rest. Then I got where I am today. I'll give the person so many chances, telling them I will tolerate it for only a limited time and then I will ban or block them. Sometimes I just do it by imperial fiat, with no grace period and that's that. I don't lose any sleep over this. I don't care what they think and I never think about it again.

The thing is... one only has so much time and it makes no sense to waste it arguing with fools. You never see a person possessed of a degree of wisdom who argues. They understand that there is room for more than one perspective and that both can be right about what they see from where they are standing. In a way it is a little like Rashomon.

There are other laws, which may not be laws but which also ALWAYS occur, such as, everyone is not always going to agree with you, NO MATTER WHAT. I've no problem with life being as it is. Some people simply cannot come to terms with it. There are various reasons for that; selfishness, arrogance, self will run riot, ignorance, bullheadedness. Somehow they have convinced themselves that they have all the answers, when they have no answers at all. Some try to club you with Bible scripture. Some try to shout you down. Some hurl insults, which have no impact, when the recipient denies the receiving. As Buddha said about such things; “If someone brings you a gift and you refuse it then, to whom does the gift belong?

I don't like that people suffer. I really don't and I endeavor to do all I can to reduce that by ADDRESSING THE IGNORANCE THAT IS THE CAUSE OF ALL SUFFERING. If people don't listen and refuse to educate themselves... then LIFE WILL EDUCATE THEM. Spoiling your children is the worst injury you can visit on them BECAUSE... the world IS NOT going to treat them like you did and they will develop permanent Prune Mouth. They will live their lives chronically dissatisfied and make it Hell for anyone who has the misfortune to be around them.

People carry on about Peace. Peace is a fiction. There are rare times, in other yugas when conditions are very much better than now BUT WE ARE NOT IN ONE OF THOSE TIMES... YET. LIFE IS a struggle for balance... a tug of war between opposites. Balance is NEVER stationary scales. It is scales in motion. We DON'T get that stationary thing because life would end then. There is a reason Golden Ages don't last. There is a reason nations rise and fall. There is a reason that some people are Evil and some Good. We need Evil people, they make us better and give us something to work with. People DON'T GET THIS!!! Be grateful you are as you are OR change it! Remember, there but for fortune goes you or I. As for peace, make peace with yourself and carry it with you and you will bring peace wherever you go.

The world is the way it is for a reason. This is a boot camp... a preparation zone for points onward and upward... or downward and WE LEARN by choices made and roads taken. There would be no poetry to life and none of the magnificent examples and statements made in a life, if it were not for the way thing are. Stop complaining and do something about it~! But first... first fix yourself and become an example of what you hypocritically whine about, but don't perform as an improvement upon.

I don't have the time, nor the inclination to bend myself out of shape to suit a handful of malcontents. Certainly I am not your problem... am I the reason your life is a failure? Certainly you can't improve on what I do, or you would be doing it. Wouldn't you? Have at it if you think you can do better because I will be the first one to study and emulate you. I ALWAYS seek to learn from my betters.

So... this posting is a way of saying to you few, Put up or shut up. The time you spend seeking to ineffectually harass me, could be better spent accomplishing what you feel I do not accomplish. Right? Meanwhile, if you are going to criticize me, at least use the truth and criticize me for something real, rather than things that don't even exist. On that account you would even get my attention. Only a fool does not pay attention to accurate criticism. The problem is that there isn't that much for you to find, not by this time, so you have to make shit up.

It doesn't matter how in depth I seek to portray my position on President Trump. People who hate him are irrational and THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHY THEY HATE HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE. Or, as is often the case, they hate him for being successful and SMARTER THAN HIS ENEMIES. Oh how they steam when they can't make their aspersions stick and when they accuse him of their own crimes and only serve in exposing themselves. Yes... Trump is a badly drawn persona but his instincts are spot on and he really is trying to help people. Meanwhile he is carrying on the same unfortunate traditions as his predecessors. Maybe you would be better served by studying why that is. Yes, his incestuous affair with Israel is appalling. BUT... if those working to unhorse him get their way... YOU WILL RUE THE DAY! My PRIMARY reason for voting for him is A CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT and the Abortion travesty. They have taken that too far.

I try to be a realist and pragmatic. For long periods in my life, one could hardly accuse me of that BUT, I have learned. That is what I do. I learn. I improve. This is one of my primary objectives. I REALLY DO aspire to a finer awareness and a new and improved state of being. It captures my thoughts completely. Why are you not doing the same?

Obviously I commit errors now and again. That's life. Everyone does this. It is what you do in the aftermath of errors that is the compelling feature. What are your real intentions? These are what both define and convict you and don't imagine that these are not seen. We shall all come before the judgment throne, sooner or later. One is better served preparing for that inevitability than by wasting their time slandering and seeking to abuse another. It will get you nowhere. I'm immune to this sort of thing and so is anyone else in this line of work. You HAVE TO BE. Why am I even bothering to tell you about it then? Do you really not know? Hopefully you tumble to the answer one of these days before you find yourself somewhere else and that... will have nothing to do with me.

Why I KNOW that I am headed in the right direction is that I don't personally set my direction. I proceed by intuition and inspiration and I have also FORGIVEN everyone who has ever harmed me and will continue to BUT that is not so evident in reverse. Anyone wishing to comment at any of my locations ONLY has to be relatively sane and not acrimonious or nasty. I cannot offer more.

End Transmission.......

Today's Song is; THIS IS A TRUE STORY-

It was a dark and stormy night. The branches of the trees scraped against the house siding and the windows. The electricity had gone down and the room was a fiesta of scampering shadows, tossed by candlelight. Visible had been informed earlier that he had received the Bulwer Lytton award. He credited this esteemed recognition to polishing his chops at Pocketnet.

UNfortunately I had to block '0's' comment because of the lies and slander but this is what she said; "I know and I can tell you because I have already undergone ascension.' She has already ascended!!! Wow! I don't feel bad about not letting her comment now because when someone is that bat shit crazy they should not be encouraged. Ascended people DEFINITELY do not talk the way she is talking.

Dear Visible One,

Such an elegant, karma burning spanking of the unruly children of the trance!

Like watching a tightrope walking artist, we hold our breath as you keep your balance despite all temptation to get personal and limited!

Bravo, Hurray and Allmen!

Why do fools bump blindly up against someone who does not suffer fools lightly, someone they never should have f*#@ed with?

That is the grace and mercy of the One, gathering ALL lost sheep and even goats in the end, back toward the Source.

The whiny immature are driven by a deep need for loving attention. The needy need their bubble burst by tough love or they will exit to the nether regions for a sojourn they will not enjoy.

How is it that the few carry the many, all through history, yet the power structure brought into manifestation through dark ceremonies has the many carrying the few servants of the darkness?

Is there a power so mighty that it can afford to expend human servants in an unending demonstration of what power truly is?

Is it an audacious flaunting of the UNLIMITED LOVE on tap?
Is it a wise shell game used to bring everyone to a higher awareness?

We who endeavor to dance with the Creator instead of the little devil whose power has been stolen from all the suffering creatures, can catch a glimpse and a clue from the few that carry Consciousness, the Son of Man.

Whether through diligence of grace, the appeal of all games on this plane of pain fade before our eyes as we see through the veil of time and notice that there is no there there to win or gain which lasts, nothing eternal.

What is left to do but seek the next level of the game?

Annoyingly, on top of the friction of living among those striving to exploit others, neglecting learning about their own creative power in favor of adopting the ways of the thief, there is this meta-phenomena where the light shining polarizes the dark into a clinging umbra which adds drag to the transmission.

This is a law too, which makes going against the mass flow down the spiral drain that much more of a challenge.

Before handing dynamite to babes, the One arranges the testing gauntlet in divine order. We being tested can be certain that we will either grow or die, NOT make things worse for the other ones sharing our timeline.

Does not seem fair but there is a transcendent beauty to this order, where the few CAN and DO carry the many up the spiral staircase, over the millennia.


robert said...


No point in taking the expendability of these special op soldiers of the spirit personally, as this game board is no respecter of persons, egos, masks, little self's nor any consciousness which is LIMITED.

The shining from the Soul of the Son of Man has illuminated all true history at the deepest conceivable level.

The source of all human courage, that which requires more than mere animal vigor and focus, is from the Spirit which was welcomed by the avatars of the Christ spirit.

When you see what resists the light of day, only a higher brand of courage can get you out of your death bed!

As this veneer of civilization is torn asunder, the gift of EXTREME CONTRAST is available to ALL, to make conscious decisions each moment about how our actions will ring in eternity.

The choice between eternally sustainable thoughts and feelings, the way of endless creativity and the other way, the way of trading life for death in the disguise of games of control over others is becoming SHOCKINGLY CLEAR.

No time to wallow, no time to doubt, no time to resist, no time to hate.

Just barely enough time to make up your mind, to make the bed or the coffin, to decide to wake from the perpetual dream which humankind, including and especially the doers of evil, has been trapped in throughout the entire history of this experimental planet!

Even the higher civilizations which preceded this latest dog and pony show where simply dreaming better dreams instead of the nerve-wracking nightmare which Krishna, Buddha and Christ came to break up, to wake up the en-souled children to the Real Life.

When we catch our minds shrinking back into subjectivity and our hearts contracting into dead beats, we must choose to drop our mask of self-deception, to hold our being close to center and to allow the Creator to show us how it is done.

Seems like my comment on Pocketnet applies to your first comment, which I just now read. Heh-heh-heh. Great song.

I read your latest posting and feel much the same as the feelings you convey in the post.
I do realize people in general are stressed out (lot-o-shit happening all around), I generally take that into account when dealing with people. That having been said if I have offended you or upset you in past comments my sincere apologies. I too have been under considerable stress, not an excuse just a fact. People sometimes just lash out at anyone. Maybe it’s Karma too! Who knows whether it was deserved or not?
There are three things in my simplistic mind I simply can not understand relating to what you write about, perhaps you could shed more light on them for me:
1. If karma is a real thing and we have no recollection of past lives how would we learn anything at all? And, how far back does it go? I somehow thought that our ‘sins’ were forgiven. Are we like the Greek god that gave man fire and then was punished by Zeus, having his liver eaten by eagles everyday for eternity? And none of us even know what we did wrong except for being born.
2. Exactly in what sense are we to understand ‘there is no injustice’ then? If there is karma as you say then logically there must be injustice because we must pay the price through karma. For example: if someone robs me (an injustice right here and now) should I consider it just, because I must have robed someone in a past life, and its all Okay then?
3. Why would God create a person with a brain, eyes, and hands etc if they were not meant to be used? Are we to sit around all day reading scripture, philosophy, mystic teachings, vedic scripts, etc.? So, is it our soul and only purpose in life to contemplate God every minute, is that correct?

I have asked these questions of God directly and the replies I got (perhaps somewhat indirectly) were that everyone of us has a different purpose in order to fulfill his will, so don’t worry about it and just carry on and try not to do things you know are wrong. Made perfect sense to me!
Perhaps your answers would help clarify things even more.

I have suggested to you before if you don’t want crack pots posting on your blog, don’t allow comments. Inevitably you will decide someone/everyone is a crack pot because they posted something which is in discord with you. You’ve made it an open forum, what did you actually expect to happen? We are all crack pots out here. Thing is sometimes I find the other crack pots interesting, weird eh?
Oh and btw, please try and answer my questions sometimes, I can not think of a single question you have ever answered for me.
Thanks for all your efforts in any case. I know it takes time and effort to post something almost everyday.

I've known you for a long time. I've known you when you were dancing on the precipice and I've known you when you were focused and since you've reeled it all in and I have to say, I have never seen anyone rise up the planes so quickly from a full stop. What I will say is that you are the genuine article and I can't imagine a better friend, one that I know would lay down his life for a friend and not even stop to ponder the implications. Since I read everything you put out and all of the comments I have also see that headcase, '0' and over time I've been impressed with the way you put up with certain things that you never would have once upon a time. You're right about that ascension thing. Ascended people do not go around announcing it and they don't lay on the scripture with a trowel either. I understand that humility and restraint are supposedly the watchwords for such characters. It amuses me, since I know you that you play your cards so close to your chest. I've seen a bushel basket full of supernatural shit happen around you and it takes a rare bird to manage that and not get all self important. One of the marks of you being as real as real gets is that I have never seen you take yourself seriously. I've also seen the level of self sacrifice that others here know nothing about. If only. Anyway, I thought I'd put in my two cents worth since you don't have all that many people leaping to defend you at certain times. It is probably cause they don't think you need it and they are right, what with those invisible friends of yours being real, which is something I can bear witness to. As for you '0', you are aptly named but probably don't get the irony. Carry on Vis. It's been a real pleasure. It's probably been 4 or 5 years since I commented here. I'm going to need to stop by sometime. It has been awhile. The Big Island was the last time.


Visible said...

Alex; Well, this is classic. The one's who worry about offending are never the ones who have done so. As far as never answering you before, I suspect you did not DIRECTLY ask me to. It has to be very clear that an answer is expected, otherwise I might think it rhetorical. As for those past lives... according to Vivekananda and many another who KNOW and who know their past lives, we are not allowed to know because then we might be aware of crimes committed against us by people in our own family and all sorts of complications could ensure when the people knowing are not evolved enough to deserve to know. YOU DO GET TO KNOW once you reach a certain level. I am aware of several of my past lives but only a broad outline and none of the details. I guess those come later.

We ARE NOT like Prometheus who got his liver eaten every day for that. I should point out that myths are IN CODE and do not mean what they mean literally. God is MUCH MORE generous and forgiving than that.

As for number two, I am struggling to understand how that is not clear to you. The Karma is the resolution of previous injustices. what I mean when I say there is no injustice is that ALL JUSTICE gets delivered and worked out through Karma. As for the robbery angle, it is more complex than that and the details can vary widely. NO... it does not mean that. Sometimes you are robbed to give you the opportunity to rise above it or to release a level of attachment. Were I you I would not spend too much time trying to figure out what I have no details concerning; that way lies madness.

Who said we were supposed to sit around all day reading philosophy and scripture? It wasn't me. I am hands on and believe in positive action. WE ARE GOD'S HANDS. I think it a good idea to practice the presence of God as much as one can remember to because that will draw God into an announced 'conscious' residence. I have accomplished this by a combination of that and full on reckless unbridled passion for God. This does not make me the Grand Poobah. This only means that I have access at all times if need be. It doesn't mean I can find out whatever I want or get whatever I want. It does mean I can be inspired and directed whenever it is needed, in case I drift and start to go off the rails (grin).

I hope this is sufficient, if not please let me know where gaps are still remaining.

Bravo, Visible! Now, please, use the block/ban button and turn the turds off.

You are correct about Trump and the screamers should reread Admiral Moorer from Aug 24, 1983:

"I've never seen a President — I DON'T CARE WHO HE IS — stand up to them. It just boggles the mind. They always get what they want. The Israelis know what is going on all the time. I got to the point where I wasn't writing anything down. If the American people understood what a grip these people have on our government, they would RISE UP IN ARMS. Our citizens certainly don't have any idea what goes on." (Moorer was head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and one of the few to call bullshit on the USS Liberty attack)

There is no way in hell that the evil bastards wanted a President mocking and exposing their mind-control media. No way.

Here is an example from Truthseeker of the kind of criticisms and differing perspective that I am talking about when I mention welcoming criticism. He's wrong to state that I have some form of interacting with Djinns, I don't know where he got that from but this is more or less routine of the territory;

People used to worship Djinns, until Prophet and King Solomon (س) son of prophet David (س) that many falsely accuse of sins, with “God’s power” enslaved all of them to prove that they are not God/s or better than humans. He used them to build the grand place of worship that now they call Temple. Those massive stones were moved by the Djinns… people saw this, however after Solomon naturally died of old age. Satan/Iblis himself who is a Djinn, hid the forbidden knowledge (to communicate with the Djinn) under his thrown, so that people would be fooled to think he too was a magician. And as it is said Knights Templar found those in the ruins. Djinns were working hard for Solomon as slave masons, later though they became free-masons! The knowledge to communicate with Djinns is much older though. The Jews (not the true children of Israel) and their messed up Talmud, know what Kabbalah is. Interestingly you say:

“I don’t expect to see God. I don’t know that any of us actually do see God. It’s said in Psalms (somewhere) that mountains melt like wax before The Lord. We would surely be rendered into cinders if we got too close to God.”

and then later you say:

“It is a kind of ‘wrestling with God. I have experienced inspired Sufi Dancing, dervishing with the consciously directed winds.”

You too imagine you can wrestle with God?! What kind of nonsense is this? You are too much into duality, you feel at home with all the mysticism of the east and Kabbalah… You really think Satan is a true counter-weight to God? He has no real power, he has been given respite to mislead mankind. He knows that he will be killed by Mahdi (عج) on earth! He is just a Djinn who in fact worshiped God for a very long time but he could not handle his jealousy of Adam.

A monotheistic mind and heart must be able to see through duality and detect the false side. THERE IS NO BALANCE between the opposing sides. In fact when dealing with Djinns and mental realms you should know the other opposing side does not actually exist. Now you seem to claim that there is a reverse Kabbalah, so that Kabalah is good. Not true. Kabbalah is the knowledge to deal with Djinns, whatever reward in the form of information or feeling that you get is from them. You’ll become a slave to them, they can then appear to you as whoever they wish, even as the ghost of your father. To summon ghosts is the biggest lie, universe is not created in such a stupid way, those are Djinns. Krishna is a Djinn too. When a famous Hollywood director is told to embark on a submarine and go to the depths of sea in a certain location so that he can get the idea for the next big movie, it means he is going to get it from Djinn. Djinns have been fooling these godless humans to take over the world. They can’t however. You should wake up and stop believing any “invisible” friend that happens to be friendly. Get off Mushroom and other mind numbing substance s too, don’t drink alcohol. You know a guy like who is not sure what is happening to him is called a bipolar. You on the other hand should know, if they loose interest in you, you’ll be in deep trouble!

Good luck interacting with Djinns. In Islam we are forbidden to do so and if this would give you a form of power that you imagine to be able to put into good use, you are badly mistaken!

What did Jesus mean when He said to not cast your pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6)?
pearls before swineaudio
Question: "What did Jesus mean when He said to not cast your pearls before swine (Matthew 7:6)?"

Answer: “Do not cast your pearls before swine” is a portion of the Sermon on the Mount, and, to understand its meaning, we have to understand its context and placement within the sermon. Christ had just finished instructing the crowd on judgment and reproof: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Matthew 7:1–2), and “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” (Matthew 7:5). Then in verse 6, Christ tempers these admonitions and shows us the difference between “judgment” and “discernment.” We are not to be hypocritical judges, yet we must be able to discern the swine, lest we cast our pearls before them.

Before Jesus says, “Do not cast your pearls before swine,” He says, “Do not give dogs what is sacred.” An analogy mentioning dogs is also used in Proverbs: “As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly” (Proverbs 26:11). A dual reference to swine and dogs is also found in 2 Peter 2:22, “Of [false teachers] the proverbs are true: ‘A dog returns to its vomit,’ and, ‘A sow that is washed goes back to her wallowing in the mud.’” In His sermon, Jesus uses dogs and pigs as representative of those who would ridicule, reject, and blaspheme the gospel once it is presented to them. We are not to expose the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who have no other purpose than to trample it and return to their own evil ways. Repeatedly sharing the gospel with someone who continually scoffs and ridicules Christ is like casting pearls before swine. We can identify such people through discernment, which is given in some measure to all Christians (1 Corinthians 2:15–16).

The command not to cast your pearls before swine does not mean we refrain from preaching the gospel. Jesus Himself ate with and taught sinners and tax collectors (Matthew 9:10). In essence, the instruction in Matthew 7:6 is the same that Jesus gave to His apostles when He said, “If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town” (Matthew 10:14). We are to share the gospel, but, when it becomes apparent that the gospel is not welcome, we are to move on. We are responsible to share the good news; we are not responsible for people’s response to the good news. Pigs don’t appreciate pearls, and some people don’t appreciate what Christ has done for them. Our job is not to force conversions or cram the gospel down people’s throats; there’s no sense in preaching the value of pearls to swine. Jesus’ instruction to His apostles on how to handle rejection was to simply go elsewhere. There are other people who need to hear the gospel, and they are ready to hear it.

I couldn't have said it better myself - so taking no consolation in condemnation - one only need accompany me across the street to the local supermarket, observe the degradation of the human genome en' mass of the sheeple, put it all into context and realize this planet is in deep Doo Doo.

So, what to do ?

Just be content that there is a different brand on the same shelf, read the ingredients, decide for yourself you are somehow better off than the brain dead mindless drones and try not to make eye contact. Watching fellow humans feed their children TV Commercial Poison, is no different than not giving the starving a bowl of rice -

On this planet, in these times, trying to teach a man to fish, will only get you into more conflict, forgive my opinion - It's been more than the 5000 year cycle - it's time to thin the herd again -
What comes next, GOD it knows.

Le Rocher,

Thanks for the rant. I find it rather ironic that Jesus first admonishes people about judging others, then a mere 5 verse later he tells us 'not to give dogs what is sacred' and 'not to throw our pearls before pigs'. Sounds like a judgement to me. I work on what God would do, and God treats us all the same, because God loves everyone, it is sin that God can't abide. The story of the prodigal son is a testament to God's amazing compassion and forgiveness, yet even God must draw a line somewhere I imagine.

It is also written, 'In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish. If your brother sins against you, go and confront him privately. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over, But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses, If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, regard him as you would a pagan or a tax collector… (Matthew 18:14-17), so raising an individual's awareness is not necessarily judgement, it can be purely out of concern that they might cause others to fall, or that they might perish.

Should we walk away from our brother for fear of conflict?

Also to be considered is, 'So do not be afraid of them. For there is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, and nothing hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the housetops (Matthew 10:26-27).

Since the saved already belong to God than it makes sense that it is the sinners who need to hear the word of God the most. Not because one perceives them as being less, but because one does not wish to see any lost that could have been saved. One can only do their best, the rest is up to God.

Some people just can't accept that we are both teachers and pupils, because we were all put here to challenge and assist each other. Perception is everything. Oh how easy it is to colour ourself as the victim, negating our responsibility in regard to the role we play in every encounter. It is so much easier to denigrate and blame others than to truly look within to see why others say the things they do to us. It is so much easier for us to convince ourself that we do not have that plank in our eye, while we try to remove the speck out of our brother's, but in the end, when we are dishonest with ourself, it is to our detriment, because that which would have been revealed remains hidden, often making the difference between whether we ascend or descend.
