    My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children" Hosea 4:6.

    Peace,

    What exactly is "spiritual knowledge" or knowledge of the spirit?

    Peace

    This part of the website is called Spirituality and Religion, folks are more interested in bashing each others religion then any aspect fo spirituality, or for those who have hang ups with the term spiritual, at least present an expresson of morals and values of secular humanism, but even that is missing.

    A God creates designs and builds, history shows devils tear down and destroy, and after they do,
    they are unable to build something in it's place

    peace

    - i find it interesting that this speaks of rejecting "knowledge" and not God! Though i'm sure those "of the spirit" will say that "knowledge" and "god" are one because "god" knows all which according to "the book" just simply is not so. So it seems that this "god" has rejected himself!

    -Funny thing is that those who claim "the book" as all knowing and as a guide are the one's who reject & refuse to acknowledge "knowledge"!

    - so as the god has asked already before the rude interruption, you would have to give a definition before your question can be properly answered if at all! But looking at the above question and looking at the verses provided, nowhere in those verses does it say "spiritual knowledge" so how did you conclude that the "knowledge" lacking is "spiritual"?

    Defining the topic

    I have selected spiritual knowledge in reference to the verse because people don't know thy self. They don't follow their heart desires. Instead they follow their flesh (ego). Spiritual Knowledge is to know the law which is link to (mental science). We can only come to know and understand the things of God, by the Spirit of God. To have knowledge of God, is to KNOW GOD. Not just to know about Him, but to know Him personally, firsthand.

    - ok, so what you are actually saying is that the verses you chose were not strong enough to stand on their own so you added your own spin to it! Were you also at the Council of Nicea?
    "people"? what "people"? if you are talking about "black" people and you have already quoted the "bible", maybe it is you lacking "spiritual knowledge"..........

    - ok, you just got here and you are telling us what our hearts don't follow.?...hmmmm, i don't follow! You should have chose the other pill........

    - spoken like a true "christian"!

    Peace,

    So basically what you're saying is if man is to learn of himself then he automatically will know God? Are you saying that man is God?

    Peace

    Peace,

    Actually I'm checking to see if Afrodisiac meant to say what Afrodisiac said. We don't recruit people to be themselves. They either want to or they don't. The thing is most people don't know who or what self is. They got plenty of beliefs though. :wink:

    Peace
