in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious
Martin Luther King, Jr.
>>>"We do not share a dogma, we share a spirit. Theology has never united us and it never will."
Terra Christa - The Global Spiritual Awakening - By Ken Carey
>>>"A popular government without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a prologue to a farce or a tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."
President James Madison, a Mainstream Militant Revolutionary from "Notes on Virginia"
>>>Dan Kirby on speaking of self worth wrote the following. I met Dan on the internet. We shared many religious ideas in common. Here is his piece:
Youg’s Literal Trans: Jeremiah 9:
24 But--in this let the boaster boast himself, In understanding and knowing Me, For I am Jehovah, doing kindness, Judgment, and righteousness, in the earth, For in these I have delighted, An affirmation of Jehovah.
Standard Ver: 1 Corinthians 1:
31 therefore, as it is written, "Let him who boasts, boast of the Lord."
Then he wrote:
“People who do not do things that come naturally, live a robotic life, or a dream world. People's lives are too dictated, too programmed. Instead of people expressing warmth, empathy and compassion, they are cold, aloof and indifferent. They are out of touch with reality because they are told what to do and what to be. People must find their own avenues of escape. This is understandable because it is Satan's system, his way.
We must stop demanding perfection out of imperfect people! Jehovah does not demand perfection from us, so who are we to demand perfection from our fellow humans."
He then talked about using guilt trips and making people feel like they aren't doing enough, aren't good enough, devoted enough. Guilt and fear. No fear in love says 1John 4:18.
>>>Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever
course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you, you are wrong.
There are always difficulties arising, which tempt you to believe that your
critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to the end,
requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs. Peace has its
victories, but it takes brave men to win them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, author (1803-1882).
