A great question in our time of epidemic nonsensical confusion and I humbly submit the parable of the sower found in Matthew for your consideration. (Matthew 13:3) And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; (Matthew 13:18) Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. (Matthew 13:19) When any one heareth the WORD of the KINGDOM, and understandeth it not, then cometh the WICKED ONE, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. (Matthew 13:20) But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the WORD, and anon with joy receiveth it; (Matthew 13:21) Yet hath he NOT ROOT IN HIMSELF, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the WORD, by and by he is offended. (Matthew 13:22) He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the WORD; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. (Matthew 13:23) But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the WORD, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. (Matthew 13:24) Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: (Matthew 13:25) But while men slept, his ENEMY came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. (Matthew 13:27) So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? (Matthew 13:28) He said unto them, An ENEMY hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? In the Lord's freedom.......warrior on
