For the uninitiated few, Occult means hidden, secret or beyond human understanding.
Whats interesting is that many people hear the word and think, "Devil Worship".
The Book of Revelations contains Occult Knowlege but not because it speaks of evil.
The teachings of Jesus were Occult teachings because most people could not truly understand what he was talking about.
Even today, people are at odds over much of the meaning in the bible.
Thats why there are so many different denominations.
Satan is the author of confusion.
Hmm...Well...If you want to be technical, the Bible has caused alot of confusion and when two different religious sects debate it, chaos can, and often does, occur.
Lets not be technical here.
Lets be realistic.
Mankind is falible. We were made that way on purpose, whatever that purpose may be.
We were not meant to KNOW anything.
If we were, we would.
All of us.
No need for debate.
So we have to be satisfied with Belief.
A God who could create a universe would not need a book to explain his existance.
Nor would he care if his creation believed he existed.
That would be vanity and I don't believe God is vain.
So the book was mankind's creation as an attempt to explain the unexplainable.
To those who say the Bible was inspired by God...Yes...You are correct.
It was most certainly inspired by God. There can be no debate.
Just as several Robin Williams scripts were inspired by Shakespeare.
But Shakespeare didn't write the scripts, and he didn't tell Robin what to write.
Occult means hidden.
Most often, that means we hide ourselves from it.
The veil that rests across some peoples eyes, is self inflicted due to their own fear.
Fear of what?
Fear of finding out that what they were led to believe their whole lives, was a lie.
Its not easy to give up the reality you've grown comfortable with.
Some people would rather kill the messenger than listen to his words.
Look at what happened to Jesus.
You are not so innocent yourself.
