The Image vs the Substance


Truly, I was just looking for an image of -a- Pope on a Throne.

You Walk in the image of the one whom you Love.

We all know that an image is worth a thousand words. So too is an action worth ten-thousand more. My adventures lead me to speak with many different types of people, and in each case I love to address the eternal value of Man, Salvation and the Eternal Life of the Redeemed.


My mother was born in a 3rd world country. Catholicism was taught to be her only means and access to God. She was forbidden to read The Scriptures, and was raised singing Latin songs, to which she could not understand the words. Regardless of what anyone says, my mother's experience far outweighs any political or public salve any Pope could hope to cover. She experienced the full force of Catholicism in the Philippines, a country of fanatical religious turmoil marked by Islam and Catholicism respectively.

Once when I visited the Philippines, my mother told me "Don't go outside, the Muslims are known to kidnap young women in the streets." A word to the wise is sufficient, to say the least.
How one receives the Truth and walks in light of it, proves the value of your presence.
Catholics are so inundated with their finely crafted philosophy, that it sometimes proves difficult to cut through the illusion. Yet we are called to Love them, and to love them enough to tell them the Truth - that they may , like seeds , crack the shell of their narrow view of God, that they may pop their head above the soil and enter into Life to walk by the Spirit of God, to Live a triumphant Life with their Savior, Jesus Christ.  

Trees can grow so very tall indeed

Reflections throughout Passover - Sanctification

Happy First Fruits! (Easter Resurrection Day)
Reflections throughout Passover - Sanctification


 

Have you ever - Tried- Matza?

Just think.. for 7 days The Hebrews omit Yeast from their lives.
If you're willing, God is teaching a very valuable lesson here - Sin is as Yeast!

Once again have you ever - Tried- Matza?
It's hard, its tasteless, its flat. It's the bare minimum. It is of no comfort to the palate on its own. It is not puffed up, it is not "a delight". It is simply Flour and water; it is what it is.

If you think that Christianity is to make everyone comfortable around you? you're straying. If you think to be a Servant of God is to also be self-indulgent, think again.

If you give yourself to any of the vices and make the mistake of thinking yourself Righteous, think again.

While Jesus was with us, he lived as Matza, and It was necessary that he die for our sins; Yet we're so lost in our delusion that we barely even know what that means anymore.

Blessed is the one who is not offended by Him.

Get the Chametz out of your lives.
Let God lead you to the True definition of Sin
. . Eat the Matza

Sin and knowledge Puffs up, but Love Builds up
