An Explanation Of Why Biblical Contradictions Were Set Forth.



Continued from home page.

    In chapter one verse one, of St. John, it says; "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." What this infers is, God is words. In another place the Bible says that the kingdom of God, or Words, is within you. And another place it says, my people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge; words again. What are words made of? Where do they come from? What creates them? What is made from them?

    There is only one place in the human body that I know of where words dwell, and that would be the mind (a.k.a. "Golgotha" -Place Of The Skull-), the "temple of Words". In 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2 it's referring to the "son of perdition" (or the deceiver), and verse 4 says "he who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshiped; so that he as God [the word] sitteth in the temple of God [the mind], shewing himself that he is God." This "he" that "opposeth" is the power of the literal interpretation (Ephesians 6:12) seducing, or pulling, the spiritual mind down (gravity) into believing the image of the words or carnal interpretation which means, the "lie". This is referenced in Thessalonians, chapter 2, verses 10 and 11, where it says; when there is no love for the truth (spiritual understanding), you will believe the lie (allegory, metaphor, myth etc.) that "Paul" said he wrote. They are both side by side. To be more explicit, verse 11 actually says; "And for this cause [not loving the truth] the bible shall give them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie". And verse 12 goes on to say: "That they all might be damned who believed not the spiritual understanding, but had pleasure in unrighteousness..." - the literal interpretation," that is, the unrighteousness of the scriptures which must be 'rightly' divided. Most of us have seen and experienced the contradiction of terms, i.e., "Thou shalt not kill" etc. but God slays half the people in the bible - and so forth.

    This unrighteousness is that strong delusion; which is the lie the writer of Romans 3:7 was talking about when he wrote: "For if the truth of the word (epistles - scripture) hath more abounded through my lie [writing in symbolism] unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner?" Or as one that would intentionally pervert the truth?   Here, it is implying the truth is veiled in a lie. The word lie is in reference to the "letter that killeth," i.e., the law and the curses of the law - sin - gravity.  The law is the strength of sin; 1 Corinthians 15:56, etc..  This is how the Word - creates the good and the evil - simultaneously; depending upon intent and desire for the knowledge (See here).  Metaphor, allegory, symbolism, parable, paradox. etc., is referenced as the image (false) or lie. The very thing Paul hated to do but had to; for the sake of hiding, but yet getting the spiritual message out for those who have pure intent of motive. Another is; He hideth the truth from the wise and prudent, but at the same time revealing it unto babes in Christ. This is another verse for the same meaning, i.e., To the one we [scribes] are the savour of life unto life to the other the savour of death unto death and who is sufficient for the things? Meaning one side of the scripture [sword] will cause you to believe the literal interpretation, being the law, which is the strength of sin, 'and at the same time (with the same words)' reveal the truth of the words to those who have been enlightened, or "babes in Christ" Like the 'two way' well shaft.. Another clue was written thus; "Ah, Lord God, thou hast greatly deceived this people (through scripture) saying peace,  peace, when the sword [judgment] reacheth unto the soul." Also Hosea 12:10. In first Timothy 1:15, Paul claims - of sinners, he is the greatest. And the way he has written the epistles will cause you to believe his lie (metaphor - allegory etc.) and be damned, if your intent of heart is not pure in your search for truth in his writings. 

    This "strong delusion" is in the scriptures where the carnal-minded (those under the Strong Delusion) are "ever learning, but never coming to the knowledge of the Christ, the truth". 2 Timothy, 3:7... Again, Galatians 3:22, "For the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of the invisible Word might be revealed to them that believe the Word is Spirit" [sic]. In Romans it says, "And the commandment which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it (the commandment) slew me". The Word, says, "I am Spirit, and those that worship me, must worship me in Spirit and truth". Scriptures (The Word) cannot be taken literally to understand the hidden message;  they are dual and must be seen as one. This happens in a trinity; " the third party," and that is our spirit; the observer.

    Affirmation of this duality can be seen in Deuteronomy chapter thirty, especially verses 14 and 15; "But the Word is very nigh thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it....."see," I [the word] have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil......". Also Romans 10:6-8. Here it's talking about words;" in them are life and death". The two edged sword. One side, or interpretation, of the scripture is called the letter (the law) that killeth; which is the "old testament." The other side of the interpretation is the spirit, or meaning of the words which give life or understanding to the word; and of course means "Christ"; the new testament, the Son of the Word. Two principles; positive and negative, night and day, male and female, yin and yang, good and evil, Satan and Jesus, the lie and the truth. "Out of DARKNESS comes the light." "Out of the LIE comes the truth." "Out of Chaos come order." "Out of ignorance comes knowledge", and so on.....  First, is always the bad guy (dark) and second, the good guy.

    The "Old Testament" means under the law of literal or carnal teaching.  The "Old Testament" begins in Genesis chapter one verse one, and ends in Revelation chapter 22 and verse 21. "The New Testament" is the same scripture taught spiritually, esoterically or metaphysically, and it begins in Genesis chapter one verse one, and ends in Revelation chapter 22 and verse 21. Thus, two ways to teach them - at the same time - and at any place throughout the scripture, that's why so many interpretations and controversy (I discuss this on page five). The word "edge," in the Hebrew lexicon, means - mouth; the two mouthed word, or the two edged sword - they are both the same scripture. We have to right-ly divide the word of truth, until we (the observer) have made the two one, by Embracing The Contradiction, thus completing the trinity, i.e., these three are one. A nice example of how this works is in John 17: 1-26. In verses 21-23 it reads: "That they all [those who are enlightened] may be made one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they [third party] also  may be one in us [two]: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.... And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one ("Know ye not - that ye are gods yourselves"?):....I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one [us = 3]; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." Now, the trinity is one. John, 5:7; "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost [and ALL that have it] and these three are one".

 

    Remember where it was written, He was coming back after his bride? This is what is being discussed in this parable. A few verses back it read that these, who are to be made one with the Father and the Son, were taken out of the world (of ignorance or lies) because they recognized the truth..... the truth is in the word. This is what I meant a moment ago about our spirit being the observer of the two and making them one - thus the trinity. The bride are the ones that have made themselves ready for the groom, Jesus (the good Word of scripture), for they (the spiritual-minded) are espoused and married unto him by having been made one; a spiritual body made up of many members in particular. This is the virgin, the feminine aspect of the trinity. These are those that have not lain with - men; meaning the carnality of the law (also see, Conception). This becomes clear when we understand how the word, man or men are used in symbolism (see below), etc.

    On the surface of all scripture are two opposing forces. Light against darkness, darkness against light, the flesh (law - darkness) against the Spirit (understanding -light), the Spirit against the flesh, the controversy - complexities, etc. (Galatians, 5:17). To understand how these forces play a part in scripture is to examine the word - image. As we know, literally, an image is something made of matter, a physical thing we can see with the human eye or touch with the hand. There is another image that we cannot see or touch with our physical  members and that is the image words pictorialize. Some words have two or more meanings, or images, and these are the words the writers of the Bible books used to suggest a visual image to the mind and is meant to be for reflection only (Romans, 7:1,14). So an invisible, Spiritual or Holy, set apart, impression might also be comprehended along with it; concomitant if you will; the two again. To those who understand metaphor and symbolic language such as most songs are written, will have a better idea of how scriptures are also written.

    Conformation for the above is found in Hosea chapter 13 verse 10; "I have also spoken by the prophets, and [I] have multiplied visions, and used similitude's, by the ministry [writings - books etc.] of the prophets." Thereby putting forth Spiritual life and spiritual death at the same time. It is up to us to choose whom we will serve; the image of the word, which is called the law, the flesh, the graven image, the letter that killeth; Barabbas; the outer; the veil or, serve the invisible message, which is called Christ. Before we go any further let's look at some clues about the differences of law and Spirit. The word man represents the carnal mind - the un -enlightened, or anyone who takes the scriptures literally (unless it specifies - brethren - or a good or spiritual man). I will explain shortly.

    The word brethren represents one who examines scriptures spiritually. Spiritual epistemology if you will. Example: Romans 7:1; "Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth (or believes in it)?" Compare that with verse 14 of the same chapter; and it says; "For we brethren [the enlightened], know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal sold under sin [the law]". What he's referring to is, where he has to do the things he hates; and that is to write the epistles in symbolism, allegory, metaphor, parables, paradox etc., which on the surface (literal interpretation) is confusion or a lie, as he explains in Romans 3:7; "For if the truth of the Word hath more abounded through my lie [writings] unto his glory; why yet am I also judged as a sinner [or as one that believes his own lie, i.e.; writings = sinful-flesh - words]?" But like the scriptures point out, they were written this way to hide the truth from the wise and prudent (literal mind - carnal) but yet, revealed unto babes of an enlightened mind. Meaning those with even a little spiritual understanding. By now you can see how this, the strong delusion, spoken of earlier, resembles the attributes of the law, i.e., the literal - carnal way of interpreting these biblical books. I think I've mentioned this before, but if so, now would be a good time to reiterate. "She took my heart apart broke it into, now the sky is grey....etc.."  To take this 'literally' would be accepting a lie. For this is not what was intende to be accepted as the truth. The truth here is quite simple; it is a song and has a 'hidden' meaning which is set apart, sanctified, holy, spirit, understanding etc. from the literal understanding. One side of the statemen is a lie and the other is the truth. The truth is hidden in the lie. It takes the lie to make the truth. A paradox indeed. It's like the Schrödinger cat concept. On the surface it is the dead letter, on the inside it is the living word. This message of the literal interpretation is also referred to as the waters of confusion - Arabia = dark swarthy waters and swaddling clothes, Luke 2-12.

    There are two laws written in the scriptures, just like the two laws perpetuating the universe. One law for matter, and one for energy, the invisible and spiritual, positive/negative or matter and anti-matter (and there is also gravity). When these laws are fully comprehended they become one with dual polarization; One law but two ways of looking at it .Two brothers - Cain and Able, Esau and Jacob, Ishmael and Isaac, Satan (the energy of ignorance), and Jesus (the energy and spirit of understanding - the invisible principle), or, death and life. The word sin actually means, living under the law of ignorance (error, deceiver or devil, lie or law, gravity etc.) rather than the enlightened law of understanding; life and peace, and this peace is the peace that passes all understanding; total at-one-ment; being omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient - our true birthright.

    Example: 1st. Corinthians 15:56; "The sting of death [a conviction of the literal interpretation] is sin: and the strength of sin is the law." 1st. John 3:4; "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is transgression of the law [ie. taking it literally]". "But we know that the law is spiritual".  Galatians, 5:18; "For if ye be led of the Spirit [of understanding], ye are not under the law [sin]." Romans, 8:2; "For the law of the Spirit of understanding in the Living Word hath made me free from the law of sin and death in the letter of the law." [sic]  This law, is the veil. His word-body image within us. It is the sinful flesh he comes in i.e. (swaddling clothes), the flesh we're supposed to eat. This is how the Scripture concludes all under sin, because, in order to get to the truth, you have to go through, or by-way of the law and be tempted by the deceiver - the flesh, sinful flesh. Born of water and then born again of the spirit. First carnally and then spiritually. Paul's lie was so good that the glory of God hath more abounded through it. Few there be that - FIND - it. This find it, is referring to the blood, or life, of the word - which means spiritual or esoteric understanding; that which cannot be contradicted because it is ONE with all laws. Remember where it says, "If you have broken the least of these my commandments, you have broken them ALL."...? Then, does it not stand to reason that, if you understand the least one that was broken, you would have  understanding of  them all - also...? Part of the unified field theory and the holographic universe/s.  Psalm 58:3  "The wicked [Carnal] are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies". The lies that Paul said he and other disciples wrote;  Romans 3-7.

 Again, Paul explains the difference in 2nd. Corinthians 2:15,16; "For we [the writers of these epistles] are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved [from the law] and in them that perish [under conviction]....To the one, we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other [the enlightened] the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?" In other words, the scripture that is being written goes two ways (much more on this in the pyramid section), carnal and Spiritual. The carnal way of looking at the scriptures conjure up images in the mind of  literal interpretation, which brings confusion because of contradiction or controversy, which is sin, and the strength of this sin is the two way law - which brings spiritual death. The Spiritual, gives an invisible impression of knowing and understanding the interpretation without a mental image; sort-of omnipresent, the silent voice of knowledge - with no words, which of course means; no mental image.

    Knowing how that works will help translate the next two verses; Romans 1:20, and it reads; "For the Spiritual things hidden in the word from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the images of the words, even His eternal understanding and Godhead; so that the un-enlightened are without excuse [sic]:" And, 2nd. Corinthians, 4:18; "While the brethren look not at the image (thing made) of words, but at the silent or invisible understanding: for the images which are seen are temporal [because once seen Spiritually, the image no longer exists]; but the invisible understandings are eternal." One of the Hebrew words for thing is Dabar; and it means; book, commandment, language, matter, thought, and of course, word.  The point here is to look through the outer - image (metaphor etc.) of the word, to the inner, which is an invisible or spiritual knowing.

    Understanding this hidden invisible message is kind of like a song. When we hear a song we don't wrestle with the words in order to get the message, it flows to us from another level, say, a unified field, which you could also call the "Lamb's Book of Life," or the "Akashic Records." Everything is recorded in the universal DNA patterns and connections - "The Field". You could say the message of a song is separated, (holy - set apart)  from the words.  Example: She took my heart, tore it apart, broke it, there's no more ocean, there's no more sky, and on and on. What confusion it would be to take this literally, or carnally. Look at the people that would constantly be arguing and fighting over the interpretation of how the song should be taken. When diligent research is done on the words prophecy, and prophesy, it would be found they mean, (spiritually), song and sing. What this infers is, not to take the scriptures carnally. Example: washing of the feet, laying on of the hands, death of the cross. These are metaphors, allegory, parables and so on - and are quite often, all lumped together at the same time -there again; the spherical cocoon.

    When the scriptures tell us to wash each others feet, the first impression, or image, that comes to mind, looking at it literally or carnally, is to literally do what it suggests. This entails getting a container of water, a cloth or towel, and to physically wash the feet. The impression to literally do this is called the graven image. When the mind is converted (born again) into spiritual understanding, the carnal impression of looking at scripture immediately disappears, because it was put there for reflection only.  There again, temporal. In order to understand and do this when reading scripture, a remembrance of where the scripture said, "look at the image to understand the things that are not (Romans 1:20)." Then immediately a closure comes to mind and helps make the conversion from the image view to the understanding, or knowing, even though we're not cognizant that it is doing it - just like a song that converts its image of words to an understanding or true intent of the message. By looking at the word feet- as an image made in the mind, we can give it the characteristics of walking or carrying us from point "A" to point "B".  And feet, are what we stand on.

    You could say; "this is where I stand on the issue," or "this is where I'm coming from or being led to." By this conversion, as you can see, there is no literal mental image present. Feet then, in the spiritual sense, represents faith or belief. When we choose a path, or different paths of the mind to walk in, we do not use physical feet, but we use the Spiritual - our faith. Looking at the writings in this light, we can understand when scripture says to wash each other's feet, it simply means to help strengthen or cleanse our faith by edifying one another, having pure intent and understanding, without condemnation and scorn. All scripture is written to the inner person, not the outer.

    One of the words for hand that is used for spiritual interpretation in Young's lexicon, is Yad, and represents ministry, preaching, logos, power etc. (Another is, 'kaph' and it means 'cloud', 'hand',' ministry', or the same as "Yad". It would be representative of the, "Left Hand". Cloud also means the "Letter" of ambiguity, i.e., confusion.)  Hand, also has opposite meanings because there is a left and right hand. For those of you familiar with the scripture can recall many instances where the scripture differentiates between the two. For those of you who are not that familiar here are just a couple of verses to help grasp the concept. In Job 23:8,9 where Job (or anyone) searching for answers, declares; "Behold, I go forward, but He is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive Him:...On the left hand [the literal interpretation], where He doth work, but I cannot behold Him: He hideth himself on the right hand [the invisible principle], that I cannot see Him." The Son sitteth on the right hand. To cease from works, would be to sit on the right - hand. Psalms 20:6, "Now know I that the Lord saveth his anointed [those of spiritual understanding]; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand." Exodus 15:6, "Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power [Christ the power of the Word and the wisdom of the Word - thus He sitteth on the right hand]: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy (i.e.. the left hand - or image. Man  = carnal and brethren = spiritual )."  Ecclesiastes 10:2. " A wise man's heart is at his right hand; but a fool's heart at his left."

    These two, again, are the opposing forces, or teachings. When following the "left hand," it is impossible to follow the "right hand;" or, you cannot serve two masters. The right hand says, no man cometh unto me except he first be drawn of the left, or the law, the word, the Father. By understanding that the Word (in the beginning was the Word) is the Father - or- that is,  "the law", we can see the Son, on, and in - the right hand - the savior, which in turn reveals to us the Father, which is to say, "I and my Father are one." By looking at the scriptures literally, we cannot see them spiritually, but looking at them spiritually, we can see the Word (father) and the understanding (the Son). There again, those with this understanding, becoming the third of the trinity - making the two one. In the book of Revelation, chapter 19 and verse 13, it speaks of Jesus' name this way; "And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood (two meanings, "Life" and  "guilt"): and His name [Jesus] is called The Word of God (or enlightened - spiritual - knowledge. See Ephesians 6:17)."  We first have to be born of water, the left hand information of the law; and of the spirit, which is the esoteric understanding or right hand information of the law. If we understand "the law is spiritual," (Romans, 7:14) that will help us to walk on the water - the emotions. In order to walk on this water (Revelation 12:15 and 17:15) we must keep our eyes (mind) on Christ, the spiritual understanding when we are reading - the law.

    There are a couple of scriptures about 'man and Jesus  in the flesh, that might help explain the difference between the two. Considering first, what the word 'man' represents. It is used in all scripture, and is for the most part, traditionally understood to mean hu-man. The word flesh also falls into that category. The following verses should show how they are meant to be interpreted esoterically or spiritually. 1st. Corinthians, 3:1-3; "And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal; even as unto babes in spiritual understanding....I have fed you with milk, and not with meat [by way of the epistles; meaning he had to write them symbolically]: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able....For ye are yet carnal; for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions [confusion], are ye not carnal, and walk as men?" To be carnal then, is to be like man, or men. Proverbs 14:12 and Proverbs 16:25. "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death". See also how men stack up to women, here. 1 Corinthians 15:55-56;  "O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?'' ''The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law." That is, the letter or "lie" in Romans 3:7. The 'ways' of 'death' is teaching the scriptures 'literally'. "But, we (brethren) know the law is spiritual." "And the commandment (scripture) which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death. For sin  (the Law = the dead Letter- the letter that killeth), taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me". Galatians 3:22, "For the 'scripture' hath concluded all under sin,..." John 5:39 "Search the scriptures; for 'in them' ye think ye have eternal life: and they (MEN) are they which testify of me." Those that worship the "law" or the "letter that killeth" are those that still cling to traditional orthodoxy.

NOTE: It can be said then....whoever has believed the scriptures 'literally', have sinned. Thereby the scripture; "For ALL have sinned and come short....." Even for those that have gone on to perfection.

.

1 Thessalonians 5-3 "For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape."
Jeremiah 4:10 "Then said I, Ah, Lord God! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem [How?], saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul." And here:  Jeremiah 6-14..."They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace."

Matthew 10-34.."Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."

Revelation 1:16  "And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength."
Revelation 19:15  "And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God."

By the above references, I find the scriptures are indeed a "TWO" edged (S) Word.

 "For to be carnally-minded is death ; and to be spiritually-minded is life and peace....Because the carnal mind wars against the Word of truth: for it is not subject to the law of spiritual learning, neither indeed can be (Romans, 8: 6,7)." First Timothy, 6:16 should be very clear on this; MAN has never seen God nor will he ever! If MAN is a liar, what hope has he? In other words, the carnal mind can only see the image of the Word, and not the invisible, or spirit message. This is why men have so many doctrines of the same scriptures. If the world could not contain the books that should be written about the subject of "Jesus," imagine the diversities that could evolve from them if taken literally...?

    The word, flesh, looked at literally, is generally understood to represent a physical body. In what is called "The New Testament" when the word "Jesus" is read as literal history, the carnal mind perceives him as human - in flesh. If, "in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God," then this is stating a differentiation of the same principle making this, "with" God, one and the same as God. Or in simpler terms, "I and my Father are one." This becomes very clear when Proverbs chapter eight is brought in, especially verses 30 and 35; "Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him....For whoso findeth me (Christ-understanding) findeth life, and shall obtain favor of the Word." Or, shall see the truth of the Father-Word - because of me.  So, when the Word is read carnally, the hidden Christ within cannot be seen because of the "graven image" of the carnal-mind or - the veil. The word, "Word," means the "flesh," and as it says, "He is come in the flesh (in the likeness of sinful flesh-the law) 2 Corinthians 5:21 "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him."." His flesh is meat indeed. But you cannot live by flesh (bread) alone. As is written; "unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you have no understanding in you." Blood represents the life or understanding of the Word-body, which is called flesh, which also we must eat. This applies to any knowledge. Knowledge by itself is a schoolmaster to bring us to the understanding or truth of its negative and literal ramifications.

The Word - literally will kill you, (prohibits spiritual understanding). This is why there must also be the blood of the words. Remember, the letter killeth and the spirit, or blood, giveth life. Once the carnal-mind, (man), has converted to spiritual understanding, or has been saved by the blood, he no longer sees the scriptures literally. For example: 2nd. Corinthians 5:16; "Wherefore henceforth know we no carnal teachings (man) after the flesh or law: yea, though we have known the image of Christ, after the flesh, yet now henceforth no we him no more." To help clarify this, look at Hebrews 10:19, 20; "Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the spiritual understanding of the invisible word....by a new and enlightened way, which he has consecrated for the brethren, through the veil, that is to say the literal interpretation of the word". We have to go through the flesh to get to the blood or life of the "word body."  Through the law to get to the spirit. Through the Father to get to the Son and the Son to get to the Father, and so on. The scriptures are laden with 'traps' 'snares' and 'gins' to trick you into believing the lie.

    In our human bodies there are seven layers of flesh and then the blood. In the scriptures there are seven levels, or layers of allegory, "flesh", then the understanding - blood. There's seven spirits of the Word, seven candle sticks, the seven churches, and then - the understanding --blood.  If truth is going to be hidden in words and it follows a pattern of the thing which is made, then it would make sense to say; there are two eyes; carnal understanding, and spiritual understanding. There are two hands; carnal teachings, and spiritual teachings. There are two feet; carnal faith, and spiritual faith. There are two ears.... etc.  But...there is only one mouth and one tongue. Remember, the word "mouth" means two-edged. The tongue cannot speak both spiritually and carnally at the same time unless it is teaching the law. Then it speaks a forked tongue - language. Of course, taught spiritually there is no duality.
