Milk or Meat

As I write this, I am reminded that some of my writings create offense to those who might not be quite ready to handle the content of the commentary.

I try my best, God willing through the leading of the Spirit of God, to present everything as accurately as I can in a biblical context as I am led.

Given that fact, the Word of God brings peace to many, but as you know, it is also a two edged sword able to cut asunder to the marrow of the bones.

Psalms 129:4 - Matthew10:34,35 - Matthew 24:50,51 - Hebrews 4:12. 

Peter wrote in

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word that ye may grow thereby.

As Paul preached to the Corinthians he knew that some were weak in the faith and so he reminded them of it in

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. (2) I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it,neither yet now are ye able. (3) For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?

Paul in writing to the Hebrews in chapter 5:8-10 he spoke of Christ but when he got to vs. 11-14 he stated this: Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. (12) For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. (13) For everyone that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. (14) But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
