"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." ....John 8:32

  We must avoid over- spiritualising what we read in the Word of God. John's new heaven and new earth for example are as truly real as the risen Lord is Himself! To spiritualise away the things of God as mere doctrine is the desperate expedient need of people who do not themselves know that reality. Further, they do not really know God at all....
