*”A philosophical movement of the twentieth century associated with Edmund Husserl and his followers. Phenomenology initially focused on epistemology, that is, how we gain knowledge of essences or the essential features of the world (abstract properties) on the basis of our perceptions of concrete realities (particular instances of those properties). Phenomenologists later turned their attention to the essences of human mental acts. Consequently phenomenology came to be associated with the study of the development of human consciousness and self-awareness.”
Another heresy as humans will not take the word of God, but in fact become fools of their own devices. Let us read what God has to say about that;
Proverbs 1: 6-7
6 for understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.I
7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Once again I cannot stress the fact that the parables were written to NOT save everyone!
