As is "A thousand and one nights" a collection, compiled over time, of narratives rooted in the experience of ancient Babylon. The primary pattern is related to the use, misuse and abuse of power. This dynamic is present in the relationship of diverse monarchs and prophets. The monarchs being liable to abuse of power and the prophets calling them to account. Both are fiction.
Compounding chaos in this domain as the truth is something buried in the folds formed by the pages ... these can be restricted by subduing literacy rates and the depth of understanding ... a ghost-like function given that it is based on what's missing. Intelligence is said to be out there ... all about as broad-based congruence! Takes great times for it all to come together ... thus the stretch we call the human race ... dark sol tearing across the yeoman!

Note: yeoman was once known as a page boy! That's the carrier medium ... something massively placed in naivete by power that will destroy creation ... E race Ure! Thus we start all over again ... as we lost it in chaos ...

Found this in my inbox, I found it intriguing. Whaddaya think?
I find the following something I essentially agree with

The Basis Of Union 2019 said:
2.3.2 Article II. Of Revelation. We believe that God has revealed Himself in nature, in history, and in the heart of man; that He has been graciously pleased to make clearer revelation of Himself to men of God who spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit; and that in the fullness of time He has perfectly revealed Himself in Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, who is the brightness of the Father’s glory and the express image of His person. We receive the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, given by inspiration of God, as containing the only infallible rule of faith and life, a faithful record of God’s gracious revelations, and as the sure witness of Christ.
Noting the language is dated and looking beneath that distraction I find:

God reveals God's self in a myriad of ways, only some of which are verbal or textual.

God made clearer revelation of God's self to individuals who spoke as they were moved of the Holy Spirit and it is fair to challenge whether or not documents included in canon or excluded from canon fit that bill. For the moment we recognize certain Hebrew and Greek texts as being given by inspiration of God.

I suppose we use the word inspiration to mean that God did not personally write what is written. What tool God employed to write with or how that tool was employed is, I suppose still a matter of debate. God's causation shouldn't be. Authorship, if it is going to be properly attributed as per current norms would as a matter of faith lift up the Editors and note what contributions are written by which authors with God getting, at the very least, co-writing credits on most material within.

God is perfectly revealed in Jesus the Christ, the Word of God made flesh.

And then there is this,

Basis of Union 2019 said:
2.4.9 IX. The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the great moments of God’s revelation and communication of Himself to men are recorded and interpreted in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament.

We believe that, while God uttered His Word to man in many portions progressively, the whole is sufficient to declare His mind and will for our salvation. To Israel He made Himself known as a holy and righteous God and a Savior; the fullness of truth and grace came by Jesus Christ. The writings were collected and preserved by the Church.

We believe that the theme of all Holy Scripture is the redemptive purpose and working of God, and that herein lies its unity.

We believe that in Holy Scripture God claims the complete allegiance of our mind and heart; that the full persuasion of the truth and authority of the Word of God contained in the Scripture is the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts; that, using Holy Scripture, the Spirit takes of the things of Christ and shows them unto us for our spiritual nourishment and growth in grace.

So we acknowledge in Holy Scripture the true witness to God’s Word and the sure guide to Christian faith and conduct.
Also dated in terms of its written expression.

Posits that authorship is secondary to what the Holy Spirit does for us in our hearts with the text.

What we need is more rules and laws to keep the powers busy circumventing ...

One must get out there some to see how bad the extended powers are ...

This may cause some reciprocate doings in the hemispheres of the psyche ... an abstract position according to the absolutely sure they can go roun dit!

D' ite's are crucial crises! (-ite) once meant alloyed and not put together easily ... like monel metal ... the cupra nietzsche ... hidden behind bronze-aged drawers ... how were yours dru-IDe? Simply from a few word ... confined literacy? Sets those beyond real into fits ... like Jumanji!

Hertzog's
comments hold about the 1/3'ds! Then there's the stem that supports the 3 from beneath the horizon as post! Boss Gibson calls these deals ... cut logs ... some knotty as the powers that bought eM down! Under that depression and humility ...

It is stated that McConnell is coming up with some powerful go rounds in the plugged constitution ...

Both offer insight helpful in the realm of decision?

Myths, stories and legends ... assist us in understanding ... suidae and sweeties ... don't consume the hole thing ... same some for when in a pickle as f(rogue) in warming waters ... environmental concerns overlooked?

You can't say such things when in the present of powers! Kissing the frog may assist ... well jumped-up ... how did that impact?
