By the Book.
When many people experience something of the divine - an answered prayer, a sudden solution, a healing - they assume that the orthodox perspective is correct.
This is doing it by the book.
Taking literally the words of the Bible as the Word of God.
But falling back into orthodox theological positions is not the answer.
This is the safe, the unimaginative approach.
But it does not lead to spiritual development.
Instead it stunts the person's faith in a childish fixity.
It inhibits growth and stifles the intellect.
Better to ask questions and search.
You may just find the Reality.
