If unbelievers understood what many believers do the whole world would be saved. At first thoughts that would be a possibility but 4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
…. And the man became a conscious soul doing things or producing things. There are so many ways to express life in God and so much we are not conscious of. We produce by imagination. Whatever we think to do simply by a collective consciousness or by the power of agreement. Because we are made in the image of God. Salvation is an amendment to age of man. Illustrated by the life of Christ from beginning to end.
The problem with this age of man is the presence of evil. We were made perfect and are perfect except for the consciousness of good and evil occurring in the same place. Yet still,
All things, indeed, [are] pure to the pure, and nothing [is] pure to the defiled and unsteadfast, but even the mind and the conscience of them [is] defiled.
To the believer understanding is primary and to the unbeliever salvation should become your primary thing. At the end of the day having access to the tree of life is life everlasting life. It doesn’t matter how you get there, get there if you can. The Greyhound bus won’t take you there.
The voice of Christ is continually speaking throughout the ages that leads to salvation. If we listen and believe we can hear the voice of The Father beckoning and calling in an omni present voice. As Jesus Himself prayed, I knew that you always hear me, but I said this for the benefit of the people standing here, that they may believe that you sent me.”
This is neither here or there but I understand that Jesus is not the only way to everlasting life but He is the only way to have and to become everlasting life even as He is the way the truth and the life. He is like a cover page to things we cannot begin to understand.
