What are in the things in this world John was talking about? Did John believed like those before him, that mans reality was not a real reality?
Probably, because he also said
It’s interesting to known that the Latin meaning for ‘idol’ is-
‘That Which Is Seen’
And what is that is ‘seen’?
Things that have ‘forms.’
Things that are known as ‘appearances.’
And what did John say about ‘appearances’?
Was John trying to tell us that we are not really here and our body composed of flesh and blood is not who or what we are? Did John As those before him, believe man is a shadow?
What is a ‘shadow?
‘ An Imperfect Imitation Of Something.’
Are we being told that we are only ‘imitations’ of something?
Do we ‘deceive’ ourselves?
We do if we do not know
An ‘imitation’ is NOT the REAL thing.
So then, did those wise Bible men know that ‘man’ and all the ‘things’ in this world….
ARE NOT REAL?
