When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. 11He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that,
"they may be ever seeing but never perceiving,
and ever hearing but never understanding;
otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!"
To me this scripture is a contridition of what Jesus is suppose to represent. Why confuse people. Wasnt the purpose of Jesus to be flesh so that the sins of flesh could be forgiven?
I've read the entire chptr and it speaks of the spiritually decerned being able to tap into a gift that they were already born with - the kingdom of heaven. In this verse Jesus appears to be more (in nature) of the ANTCHRIST.
