The parable of the ten virgins might have more spiritual depth of meaning than many give it credit for. It is easy to pass off some of the details in Jesus’ parables and say that the details aren’t all that important because they are only parables. I don’t believe this and through this series of articles am trying to show this. Even salvation is absolutely free, there are still requirements that God has placed upon our living upon this earth. We tend to forget that this is the training ground and we are just passing through.
It is a hard thing for many of us to realize that some of our traditional teachings do not cover the whole truth being conveyed in God’s Word. This is of course also a common line used by many cultists and so I would encourage the reader to check these things out for yourself before accepting “truths” from anyone. It must be confirmed in the Word of God. Often it is of great value to research the original usage of words so that the true meaning is understood. This often casts a bit of light on the subject not seen before. This is the case with many of the things that Jesus said, particularly in His parables.
