Context, gdemetz, context...I know Mormons have a hard time with that when it comes to their "proof texts" but it's all about context. Oh, and did I mention context?
What I have seen in your posts is basically worldy interpretations of scripture. How can a person's spirit become spiritually reborn when all they see in scripture is worldly meaning? Because that is the level of understanding they are ready for. Father will let the Holy Spirit know when to reveal more Truth; when Father deems the individual is ready. That Truth includes both worldly and spiritual Truth and understanding.
We are all blind; some more than others. It just depends upon where we are in our journey. We are blind to whatever part of Truth has not yet been revealed to us. Because we are blind to it, we cannot see it; thus, we don't even know that we are blind to it.
I have learned not to place God in a box; especially not in a box that I have made, or that any man has made. I think the reason that the two great commandments are so extremely important is multi-layered. One seems pretty basic in that in order for us to become "one" with God, we need to become "one" with each other. Another layer is the fruit of trying to keep those commandments. I say this because when we are asked to forgive others who have hurt us, or to love others we completely disagree with or who have entirely different world views, we MUST open our minds and our hearts and expand in order to learn how to love them. With our minds and hearts opened, the Holy Spirit is then able to communicate with our spirit and teach us more and more Truth. If our hearts and minds are closed, He cannot teach us any more than we already know. Thus our blindness and our ability to have blindness removed pretty much depends upon us and how well we keep the two great commandments. I am not very good at this; but I am getting better at it. I have noticed that the harder I try to keep these commandments, which consequently opens my heart and my mind, the more Truth is revealed to me through the myriad levels of understanding in scripture which would otherwise remain hidden.
There is great wisdom is those commandments.
