Inability To Discern TRUTH

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

From the Gospel of Thomas, verse 78: “Jesus said, “Why have you come out into the desert? To see a reed shaken by the wind? And to see a man clothed in fine garments like your kings and your great men? Upon them are the fine garments, and they are unable to discern the truth.””

As interpreted by one who has ears to hear: “Jesus said, Why have you come out into the desert? (Waterless place apart from the water of God’s Word) to see a reed (The Word Canon is derived from the word reed) shaken by the wind (of God’s doctrine)? And to see a man clothed in fine (Religious or secular) garments like your kings and your great men? (Who are all in collusion) upon them are the fine [garments], (Externals, or superficial greatness; association with an organization or religion) and they are unable to discern the truth (Because they lack internal greatness, or true substance)”
