Discovering TRUTH

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with(in) God,

And the WORD was God.

John 1:1

Many believe that to study the Word is to simply READ it and believe it.  But the Bible says to “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”. ~ 2 Timothy 2:15

Study is the application of the mind to the acquisition of knowledge, as by reading, investigation, or reflection;

Divide is to separate into parts, groups, sections, etc.;

Investigate is synonymous to scrutiny, exploration, examination, inquiry, research expressing the idea of an active effort to find out something;

Reflection  is a calm, lengthy, intent consideration;

2 Timothy 2:15 is an invitation to TEST the doctrine for validity and TRUTH. Dividing it however you need, to gain an understanding. Scrutinize it, Explore it, Examine it, Inquire about it, Research it and Reflect on your findings.

The fact that the male and female counterparts’ strength lies within their bond is so powerful and amazing, Divine and Godly. Apart, we are powerful, together we become a dynamic force!

In Western Philosophy, the concept of male female connectedness and complementary energy is found in the King James Bible, Genesis 2:21 -25, God takes one of Adams ribs and with it “made he a woman” and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man”. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

In Eastern Philosophy, the concept of pinyin, or yin yang as referred to in western society, literally means dark and light. It describes how polar opposites or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent, giving rise to each other. Yes, exalting each other! This concepts of the interdependence of polar opposites lies at the origins of classical chinese science and philosophies; guides traditional chinese medicine and is the central principle for various chinese martial arts.
