Claiming to be saved and a following the path of Jesus the Christ, and having the ability the quote bible and verse and speak from authority on matters of the spirit. Without having done the internal and external work, is like studying for the big exam and never taking it.
A place for a free exchange of biblical concepts and knowledge for the purpose of growth and expansion of all participants involved. Not for argument, but for serious discussion and debate to gain learning.
The only true antidote for antagonistic feelings towards others seen as being unlike we are, is to realize this simple -- but largely unwelcome truth: just like ourselves, everyone -- everywhere in the world -- is doing the best they know how to do with the pain that they have been given.See More

None of us know our end really, or what hand will guide us there. A King may move a man, a father may claim a son. That man can also move himself. And only then does that man truly begin his own game.
Remember that howsoever you are played, or by whom, your soul is in your keeping alone. Even though those who presume to play you be kings or men of power. When you stand before God, you cannot say "but I was told by others to do thus" or that "virtue was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice. Remember that.
You are not what you were born, but what you have it in yourself to be
I put no stock in religion. By the word religion I have seen the lunacy of fanatics of every denomination be called the will of God. I've seen too much religion in the eyes of too many murderers. Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves, and goodness. What God desires is here [points to head] and here [points to heart]
Mediocrity is a form of madness, a dream embraced by the masses because it makes just getting by an acceptable -- sometimes applauded -- social art form. What is excellent requires extra effort. To agree to sleep our way through life is to lose everything, because it rules out the possibility of our soul's awakening.
You are alive because of the power of God, which is the power of Life. You are the force that is Life, but because you are able to think at the level of the mind, you forget what you really are.
There is nothing as certain as silence, stillness, and solitude to introduce you to the secrets of yourself.
It is impossible for anything new to occur. It is only possible to have new experiences of that which has occurred many times before.
Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong; that is your oath.
The reason perfect love casts out fear is because any unwanted condition willingly embraced loses its power over us. We are
never captive to what we agree to, nor do we wish for a time to come when we will be free. Only when we are no longer driven to
imagine a freedom apart from what the moment holds for us, will
we find that we are free now.
You Are a Miracle
Now I come to tell you again that this is what is true: Love is unconditional. Life is unending. God is without need. And you are a miracle. The miracle of God, made human. This is what you have wanted to know all along. It is what you have always known in your heart, and what your mind has denied. It is what your soul has whispered to you time and time again, only to be silenced by your body, and the bodies around you.
You have been asked to deny Me by the very religions that would invite you to know Me. For they have told you that you are not Me, and I am not you, and that to even think so is a sin. We are not one, they say, but rather, the Creator and the created. Yet this refusal to accept and know yourself as one with Me is what has caused all of the pain and all of the sorrow of your life. I invite you now to a meeting with the Creator. You will find the Creator within.

It is often said of a person that "he is just trying to find
himself." And that is very true. What you are all trying to find is your
self. Yet you will not find that self anywhere outside of you. What you
are looking for can only be found within.
Remember what I have told you: If you do not go within, you go without.
Mediocrity is a form of madness, a dream embraced by the masses because it makes just getting by an acceptable -- sometimes applauded -- social art form. What is excellent requires extra effort.
