Hi banah
Yes,I agree.And if I can quote you in part again? You said,"To let God in is to expose all our weaknesses."When the veil of depression begins to lift away,depressed people become suddenly,in many cases;not in others,aware of how they have distorted the truth.Realizing that they,not outside forces,are responsible for this distortion of truth exposes many,if not all,of their weaknesses.This nakedness of responsibility(exposing of weaknesses) can be very difficult for some to accept.Many, as we are all well aware, don't accept responsibility for their thoughts,emotions,actions and reactions and live lives believing blaming,denying,rationalizations and victimization is normal and acceptable.People who accept this,of course see the truth in many ways as always relative.Exactly the way that Adam and Eve were trying to present their transgression to God.They actually rationalized(believed) that they could be successful lieing to God if they in fact believed the lie was true. They accepted the depressive(distorted)lies rising from their subconscious as truth.And they believed as truth that their rationalization should be accepted by God.Thereby believing they could pass Gods' judgement and had no need to repent and seek mercy.At this point humankind began to believe that all truth could be made relative and no truth was absolute.As I've said before on different threads an absolute truth that I accept and I believe is at the basis of this story about humankinds fall from grace is that,'believing something doesn't make it true.'
Thank you,dane
