That I speak to you in so many different ways? Have you not yet realised that I may take you to one place in your holy book for a particular reason as an individual and then take many scores of people to the same place for different reasons than your own. Of course I do because you are all individuals who are different but maybe with many similarities. I may say something to you in your Bible and you may think because the information appertains to your principles thus you can accept, and because of this you may believe other people’s principles must accept the same information because you do; even though their principles may differ from yours with several variations’.
It is like this all the world over and this is one of the reasons why so many people are accused of cherry picking, they may be this way because you have principles that are easier for you to follow but others may have difficulties following them and they may find other different information in the same Holy bible/book as the one you use and can relate to that, having said this one can be as good or bad (useful) as the other, it all depends upon ones own characteristics how they and you perceive = understand or comprehend: to understand or interpret something in a particular way the action was perceived as a conciliatory gesture.
Therefore you cannot put everyone into the same category as yourself even though you all study and follow the same Divine/God, as many people say (It all depends on ones own interpretations). How many times do people of the same religion argues a point and admit, well my interpretations may differ from yours therefore I am right and you are wrong, and then you will argue the same point.
People have to realise the complexity of themselves as individuals and collectively, and it is the same with the Divine your God, because your God is complex beyond human beings understanding even though many believe they understand him so well, and this is a great mistake because you do not, you only understand him on the level he wants you to as an individual person for yourself, and not for everyone else mostly for his reasons and not yours, but at times for yours only and not everybody else’s.
So do not run away with the idea that because God says something in the bible and you accept it for yourself do not accept it for everybody else otherwise you will end up causing difficulties for yourself and other people, as I reiterate we are all individuals who’s purpose in life will differ beyond your comprehension and if anyone thinks otherwise then they are deluding themselves.
