Looking at something through a worldly aspect is really a religious understanding, being that all knowledge is a mixture of witchcraft and religion. Only those outside worldly religions can see this truth and there are not many of them, simply because they would have to be in the prophesied Bridal Company, living in the boundaries and concepts of Turah, safe under Messiah's watchful eye who is perfecting them.
So Brothers and Sisters there are two mindsets happening in this world today which are the Religious and the Bridal mindsets. There are many who are deceived, thinking they are the Bridal Company buy are really religious. Obviously their behaviour is the deciding factor.
The way Scripture is quoted today through religious mindsets is completely out of context and leads to great confusions, such as "A GOOD REPUTATION" from Proverbs 22:1. This is the major Scripture used for a good reputation, only the Scripture does not say anything at all about reputation but speaks about "Your Name." Reading from the BYNV we have ................ PROVERBS 22:1........ A good name is "preferable," to great riches. Favour is better than silver and gold.
If we look at the word "Preferable" we see that the person who is about to behave something is the one who is choosing what they are about to perform before Messiah. They are preferring a particular behaviour and their whole thought process is on pleasing Messiah, in the hope of His favour, always refining their behaviour. Mind you, EVERY SCRIPTURAL ACTION IS A BEHAVIOUR !!!
The object of this discussion is of course to reveal that the interpretations of religious folk is their own preference to make Scripture show that men should have a good reputation before other men. Omitting the fact that our choice as to having a "Good Name" before Messiah is far more relevant than fussing over what religious folk consider to be a good reputation. All religions have the mindset of having a good reputation before each other. This whole world are living these confusions.
