Let Us be the Generation April 12, 2021

It wasn’t part of God’s original plan for humans to rule over other humans.  He created us to have fellowship with Him.  We were created in His image.  However, all that got fouled up when Eve listened to the serpent and Adam followed Eve into disobedience which severed the bond between God and humanity. 

Lucifer became the god of this age and humanity started its long and dismal effort to return to God on our own terms.  First, we tried to build a tower to heaven.  When that didn’t work, we began inventing religion after religion all based on works.  We sought to climb a stairway to heaven made of rules, traditions, sacrifices, and ceremonies.  Nothing worked.  All we ever managed to do was subjugate some people to others who may have pretended to know the way but always knew in their hearts they didn’t even know where they were let alone know where they were going. 

Just as in religion man’s original and metastasizing sin led to the oppression of the masses by self-anointed elites, so too in the secular realm. Since we refused to let God lead us humanity has been set upon like sheep by the ravenous wolves of conquest, heredity, and whoever the nameless faceless bureaucracy belches up.  All hail the leaders of men! 

Might makes right plus time and traditions equal legitimacy.  For the vast expanse on human history emperors, empresses, kings, queens, lords, and ladies have run rough shod over the powerless bodies and lives of we the people.  A few tiny sparks shined for moments in the darkness.  Several of the city states of ancient Greece and the early Roman Republic presented a façade of republican freedom sitting atop slave populations like a beautiful laminate over worm rotted wood.  With these few exceptions the history of humanity until 1776 was one long parade of human degradation at the hands of powerful elites above reproach and beyond control.   

Since that watershed moment when the American Revolution lit a flame of freedom that sent sparks in all directions a flickering light of individual freedom, personal liberty, and economic independence burns like a lonely candle in a very dark cave.  Today that candle is sputtering in an ill wind promising to blow no one any good. 

The valiant attempt by we the people to carve out a space of the free exercise of those unalienable rights endowed by our creator founded the world’s first nation dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.  And what this led to and what it requires of us was summed up well by President Reagan, “If we look to the answer as to why for so many years we achieved so much, prospered as no other people on earth, it was because here in this land we unleashed the energy and individual genius of man to a greater extent than has ever been done before. Freedom and the dignity of the individual have been more available and assured here than in any other place on earth.  The price for this freedom at times has been high, but we have never been unwilling to pay that price.” 

We have recently experienced a dramatic change in America’s direction.   

In February of 2020 President Trump was unassailable.  The strongest economy in memory, the triumphs of peace in the Mideast, the winding down of the forever wars, coupled with finally gaining control of our southern border had him cruising to re-election.   

Then in March the only non-politician outsider ever elected president allowed hysterical doomsayers to convince him to shut down the economy over a new type of flu which the CDC now says, “if you have the virus between the ages of 0 to 70, you have a 99% survival rate. And if you’re over 70, the survival rate is nearly 95%.”  This gave blue swing states the opportunity to unconstitutionally change election laws opening a pandora’s box of Chicago-style voting procedures and counting techniques resulting in the election of Place-holder Joe Biden and the President-in-Waiting Kamala Harris, the restoration of the establishment.  And thus, the wildcard win for the populists and their in-your-face leader was beaten back by the power of corporate money, media, and lemmings at the polls. 

Prediction: With the final passage of HR 1 and its companion S 1, or as our tongue-in-cheek Congress call it the “For the People Act of 2019” President Harris will win the election of 2024 by the biggest landslide in America.  She may even carry all 52 states.  And that long dark winter President Biden promised during his mail-it-in campaign will fall like the polar vortex over what was once the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

One leader is gone, and people are no longer terrified by his mean old tweets.  A new leader has left his basement in Delaware and is shuffling around in the White House signing whatever is put in front of him and answering preapproved questions from notes.  We’re all once again safe and secure in the arms of the perpetually re-elected and their civil service nomenklatura with their life-time sinecure, top-shelf benefits, and golden parachute retirements.  The terrible orange man is gone, and mediocracy once again settles like a fog over Moscow on the Potomac.  

There are basically two types of leaders.  Those who use people for their own interests and those who sacrifice themselves for the interests of the people.  The first type represents worldly authority, the second godly. 

The Pharoah in the story of the Exodus is the archetype of a worldly leader.  He was willing to let his whole nation be destroyed even up to the death of the first born of every family just to preserve his own power and privilege.  In this same biblical story Moses is the shining example of godly leadership.  As the Israelites wandered through the desert, they rejected and resisted Moses.  Yet Moses loved the people so much he offered to give his own life to appease the wrath of God so that they might live.   

Today this kind of godly leadership is based on the example of Christ.  Paul tells us in Philippians what Christ sacrificed to lead us into eternity: 

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.  

Or as Matthew tells us, “And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” 

Worldly leadership is all about the leader.  Grasping for and holding on to power is not just the main goal, it’s the only goal.  For the worldly, leadership is an opportunity for self-aggrandizement and profit.   

For the godly it’s an opportunity for self-sacrifice and service. 

President Trump, who made his money building things, changing the skylines of cities around the world, running multitudes of businesses, and employing thousands of people lost more than a billion dollars while serving as America’s leader.  By contrast, President Biden, Middle Class Joe, who has worked for the government his entire adult life or cashed in on the benefits of doing so is worth approximately nine million dollars. 

The Great Communicator, Ronald Reagan left us some wisdom that might help us gain a perspective of where we stand. 

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” 

You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.” 

If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.” 

I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas. But we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him over on the shelf in our day-to-day living.” 

Let us strive not to be the generation that dropped the torch.  Instead let us be the generation that turned back to God so He would heal our land.

The Most Insidious Thing About Socialism March 24, 2021

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.
Tags: , , , ,
add a comment

Some things are blatantly evil.  When we hear of the Nazis’ Kristallnacht and their Final Solution, the Soviets’ Forced Collectivization and their campaign to eliminate the Kulaks, or the Chinese Cultural Revolution and their campaign to re-educate the Uighurs we can easily see the hand of man’s enemy sacrificing life on the altar of death.  Other things just as evil are hidden in plain sight such as America’s on-going genocide of the unborn euphemistically called “The Right to Choose.” 

The first six examples above of evil were and are manifestations of socialist governments imposing their visions of utopia upon disarmed and vulnerable victims.  The last example is presented as a constitutional right of free people in the present-day Sodom and Gomorrah still known as the United States of America.  For generations we have stood for liberty and against the evil of socialist authoritarianism willing to “… pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.” 

American education has been hijacked by the cultural Marxist acolytes of the Frankfurt School.  They have captured the schools of education across our land and their weaponized graduates have raised up generations of Americans embarrassed of the history who hate their own country.  Many of todays indoctrinated students claim to be socialist and they cannot define socialism.  Electric car driving ecology warriors plugging their mobile lithium battery bombs into coal fired power plants while following leaders riding in limousines, flying in private jets, and burning down the rainforest to make parking lots for their latest mega doner event for climate change. 

And the funniest thing about this dystopian scene is that the useful idiots can’t see it at all and get mad if anyone tries to point it out.  Not funny Ha-ha funny unbelievably sad.   

Satan’s greatest victory is when people believe he doesn’t exist, that there is no sin, and I’m okay – you’re okay.  And the greatest victory socialism has is that it masquerades as an angel of light and is therefore called good instead of evil.  And therein lies the rub. 

The Psalms tell us to “Defend the poor and fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and needy.”  In Proverbs, the book of wisdom we’re told, “Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the misfits.  Speak out for justice!  Stand up for the poor and destitute!” The Lord Himself told us that we should care for those who cannot repay us.  The Apostles when they gathered to review the gospel as preached by Paul told the early church to remember the poor. 

Since this is what God tells us over and over that we should do, the desire to do it is a part of humanity’s spiritual DNA.  Just as we have a God sized hole in our heart that only God can fill so too, we have an innate desire to protect the weak and provide for those who cannot provide for themselves.  If we ignore this desire, we have a constant feeling of disappointment that we’re not doing what we’re supposed to be doing, because we aren’t.   

Since most people in today’s secular America are devoid of a biblical reference to God’s revelation, they’ll experience this drumbeat of personal disappointment as a longing for something they can’t quite put their finger on.  And the never-ending avalanche of commercials are right there to tell us the next best thing will surely make us happy.  And it never does. 

This brings us to the most insidious thing about socialism.   

Caring for the poor and needy was always the province first of the family and a primary mission of the Church.  In the reality-based version of Norman Rockwell’s America families cared for each other.  Multigenerational households were common.  Families socialized together, worked together, and were there when a helping hand was needed.  People gave to their churches as the storehouse to provide help to the orphans and widows, the homeless, and the loveless.  This is how God intended for it to work.  People are asked by God to give freely not grudgingly, or of necessity.  If we follow Him He gives us the desires of our heart and we find fulfillment when we follow and at least attempt to accomplish those desires. 

Socialism short circuits all this.  By assuming the role assigned to individuals to help others and claiming to do it for us the Big Brother of government makes people feel as if the burden has been lifted and they have done all they need to do.  Our corporate feelings of emptiness and failure speak volumes to the fact that this isn’t true.   

The big government and authoritarian policies required by socialist redistribution on the side of the Haves, swallow the resources and smother the sense of responsibility of those caught in its maw.  And on the side of the Have-nots its drip-drip-drip of free benefits kills incentive, smothers the drive to achieve, and incubates rage. 

The siren song of, “From each according to their abilities to each according to their needs,” lures many into the spiritual stupor of the bread and circus mentality basking in the SOMA induced trance of, “It’s not my problem.”  We see the poor all around us and since our taxes supposedly are used to treat, but never solve the problem, it’s easy to drive right by thinking, “Someone else will do it.” 

Now here’s the hidden part of it, like the portion of an iceberg that’s under water.  It doesn’t ever work.  After generations of a war on poverty, trillions of dollars in transfer payments, and millions of people trapped in a government Rube Goldberg machine there are about the same percentage of Have-nots living in poverty as there were before we fell down LBJ’s rabbit hole.  But at least the Haves feel better about themselves because they, “Gave at the office.”   

And anyone who has ever traveled through the wormhole of trying to get some help from the bureaucrats running the give-away machine knows, being treated like trash isn’t a fun or edifying experience.  To sum up, ever since the government took over welfare it isn’t well, and it isn’t fare. 

Yes, the government may tax us.  Yes, they say they’ll take care of everyone.  However, this does not absolve us of our God given duty to minister to those who need help.  Give and it shall be given unto you.  It’s better to give than to receive.  Reach out to help and your hands become the hands of God.  Speak an encouraging word to the downtrodden and yours can be the voice of Christ in their lives.  Protect the defenseless, share the gospel of Christ in a dying world, and watch the light of God illuminate the darkness.  This is the most glorious thing about faith.

The Great Reset Verses the Great Reversal March 17, 2021

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.
Tags: , , , ,
add a comment

Many people who are politically engaged are aware of the latest version of the New World Order.  This is the so-called Great Reset being pushed by the economic avatars behind the annual billionaire networking show in Davos.  For the last several years they’ve evangelized the leaders of secularism in the need to reset the world from a rustic attachment to freedom to a more advanced submission to socialism. 

The Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media portray the Great Rest as a conspiracy Theory.  And we all know that only tinfoil hat wearing white supremacists believe in conspiracy theories.  I want to know, how can it be a conspiracy theory when the people proposing it tell everyone exactly what they want to see happen? 

There is no better way to expose how much this is a part of America’s political scene than to learn that the motto for this revisioning of everything is, “Build Back Better.”  If that sounds familiar it’s because that was the campaign slogan for the Biden/Harris campaign.  A mere coincidence?   If you buy that, I have a slightly used bridge in Brooklyn and I’m willing to sell it at a bargain basement price. 

The devastation caused by the Great Plandemic is the starting point for the Democrat plan to rebuild on the wreckage they’ve caused: an America that bows its knee to the false god of government. 

The Democrat Governor of Washington, Jay Inslee, expresses his hopes for the aftermath of the plandemic, “this has always been an economic opportunity … we should not be intimidated by people who say you should not use this COVID crisis to peddle a solution to climate change … we can’t use COVID as an excuse for inaction on climate change … they’re both so similar … based on an understanding of science.” 

Sen Bernie Sanders sees an opportunity for empowering government in the COVID shamdemic, “If there is any silver lining in the midst of this terrible, terrible and unprecedented moment in American history in terms of the economy, in terms of the pandemic, it is that maybe we start rethinking some fundamental tenets about the way our government and society works.” 

According to Hillary Clinton, “This would be a terrible crisis to waste as the old saying goes.” 

Compare the broadside bromides of these guides to an imagined Venezuelan style worker’s paradise with the comment of Fox News commentator, Tucker Carlson who said, “As long as public health bureaucrats are throwing around oxymoronic, doublespeak, like social distancing and flatten the curve, politicians have the cover they need to empower themselves and their friends and that’s exactly what they’ve been doing.” 

Can you see what’s happening? 

This may all be depressing.  It is undoubtedly discouraging.  But none of it should be a surprise.  Personally, I’ve been speaking and writing about this for decades as have many others.  The watchmen have been calling from the walls, “The storm is coming.” 

If you are not prepared get prepared.  Toilet paper might be a nice thing to have but food is essential.  So is water.  A place to grow your own food is optimal.  And it doesn’t take great fields to grow food.  A small yard can produce an amazing amount.  The Lord tells us plan for the worst and trust God for the victory. 

And upon that turns the tale. 

In the natural this threatened Great Reset may loom like a hurricane on the horizon.  It may look as if it will engulf the world and submerge America in the abyss of socialism where equality is swallowed by equity and freedom is ground under the heel of regimentation.  As the Democrat/Socialists leverage their bare majority in Congress into an unconstitutional federal mandate ensuring victories forever more, as fences and troops turn DC into their fortress of solitude, and as an avalanche of Executive Orders makes ruling by decree appear to be the order of the day don’t lose heart.  Remember, tears may come in the evening, but joy comes in the morning.  All this is about things.  That is all these people can do, take away things.  They have no power over our souls.  The Lord tells us numerous times in His Holy Word, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  We can depend on that. 

The world and all that is in it is passing away.  Don’t become obsessed with the fact that America is passing under judgment.  When you look at the ever-mounting death toll in our abortion mills or at the open sewer society flourishing all around us is anyone really surprised that our all holy God has lifted His hand from us? 

The Great Reset is coming.  Our government of themselves, by themselves, and for themselves is working day and night to see that it does.  But that will only rearrange the City of Man.  We who have confessed Jesus as Lord and believe in our hearts that God has raised Him from the dead have already become citizens of the City of God, and there we stand witnessing and waiting expectantly for the Great Reversal, where the first shall be last and the last shall be first. 

Love is our currency.  We never have a deficit budget, for all we ever owe anyone is to love them.  And since we’re filled up wall-to-wall with Spirit of God we never run out of that precious commodity. 

It’s hard not to mourn the passing of mankind’s last best hope on this planet for individual freedom, personal liberty, and free enterprise, but we must see the bigger picture.  Paul and the other Apostles labored under one of the most oppressive military dictatorships of all time: the Roman Empire, and yet they never called for a violent revolution.  They kept their eyes on the prize and counseled all to turn to Christ and find life. 

Here we are caught upon the horns of a dilemma.  Our democratic process has belched up a faction of authoritarian wannabees determined to impose socialism, its economy, and destroying fever dreams.  They control all branches of the federal government, and there’s nothing to stop them from passing anything they want.   

We’ll never be able to stand up to them until we’re on our knees praising God and thanking Him for the salvation He’s given us in Christ. 

Don’t let the judgement of God bring you to despair.  God corrects those He loves. 

And there is a way out of this season of darkness, “… if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 

If we’ll follow this advice, we’ll receive this promise.  Then we can leave concern about the Great Reset in the secular sewer where it belongs and praise God for the Great Reversal.

The Paradox of Free Will March 3, 2021

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.

add a comment

How can we possibly believe in free will since Christians believe in His Omniscience God knows everything we’ll do in advance and we also believe He has a plan for our lives before we’re born?  So where is the free will?

God has perfect foreknowledge.  This means He knows the end from the beginning and thus He knows what everyone will do in the future and what any individual will do in any given situation. God has a complete plan for everyone’s life.  He knew how He wanted the universe to end before He created it and so He had a plan for every action needed to reach that end before the foundation of the world. 

If God wants a particular thing to happen, He knows who will choose to do it, when they will choose to do it, and under what circumstances they will choose to do it.  However, just because God already knows what choices we will make this in no way removes our free will. 

You see God is outside our space time continuum.  He is ever always in the now of eternity.   And in this bubble, we call reality we are the ones making the choices.

One example might be to think about our own foreknowledge of History.  We know how World War One ends.  If we could go back in time to July of 1914 the fact that we already know how the War will end would not force anyone to do anything.  Our knowing that the assassination of the heir to the throne of Austria would knock over the first domino ending only with the Treaty of Versailles wouldn’t stop Gavrilo Princip from shooting Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

God created us with free choice.  That’s why He told Adam and Eve not to eat of the fruit of the trees in the center of the garden.  He told them not to do it, but He wouldn’t have said “Don’t do it,” if they couldn’t do it if they chose to.  Free choice means not only that we can choose to ignore God’s commands it also means we can freely choose to confess with our lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in our hearts that God has raised Him from the dead and so be saved.

It all hinges on free choice.  God is looking for children who choose to love and follow Him, not robots who have no choice.

God’s knowing what we will freely choose doesn’t mean that we are in any way forced to make that choice.  You can choose to believe this or not.

Dr. Owens’ Newest Book February 15, 2021

Dr. Robert Owens announces the publication of his first ever book of poetry.

Every Farmers Got a Gas Pump / Available at Amazon

He started writing poetry before he ever heard of poetry.  There are poems in this book he wrote while in grade school and there are poems in this book, he wrote in 2020.  Therefore, it took more than sixty years for this book to mature from pen to print from swirling thoughts to a book in your hand.

What is poetry? Is it just alliteration, imagery, rhyme, rhythm, sound, stanzas, tone, and meter? Or is it something other. Something shimmering between reality and realization?  Is it the charismatic sister of prose encapsulating enchantment bringing substance to what is known intuitively? 

You might find the answers to these and other questions in Every Farmers Got a Gas Pump

Available at Amazon

Whether we call it “Flipping the switch,” or “Mashing the button,” when we do it, we expect the light to come on.  But if there’s no power all we end up with is a futile finger exercise.  Even a flashlight needs batteries.  No power no light.  It is the power of the sun’s thermonuclear inferno that provides the natural light illuminating life on earth.   

In the arcane world of physical cosmology and astronomy the debate about Dark Matter and Dark Energy consumes the attention of the best and the brightest even though this has about as much every day walking around relevance as the ancient question, “How many angels can dance on the head of a pin.”  We’re told that which is invisible is measurable.  Some scientists go so far as to say that only 4% of the universe is physically observable, made up of matter.  The remaining 96% they say is dark or invisible. 

We’re told if these unknown and unknowable quantities aren’t factored into our calculations our accepted laws of physics, at the universal and the infinitesimal ends of the scale, don’t work.  They just appear to work within the observable bubble scientists call “The Space-Time Continuum” or as we call it out here in the work-a-day world, “Reality.”   

In other words, though these intricate Laws of Physics may look and are presented as rock solid, they aren’t.  It’s good to remember these and all Laws of Science are just theories constantly in search of either affirmation or repudiation. 

What this tells us about the reality we observe is that science says it isn’t what it seems.  If the Dark Matter – Dark Energy theory is correct most of what is – is invisible to us.  If it isn’t true, we’re relying on science based upon physics which we know is incomplete, imprecise, and fundamentally wrong.  If the foundation is bad how can the structure built upon it be good?  If the basic assumptions of science are faulty how can we trust it to reveal the universe around us? 

Some people believe that science is based on fact and religion is based on faith.  When we learn that once quantum physics intersects with normal physics and once Dark Matter and Dark Energy collide with observable matter the claptrap of the modern scientific edifice is shown to be a house of cards built upon multiple leaps of faith disguised as logical assumptions. 

If some want to embrace theories as dogma acting as the Apostate Apostles of Scientism preaching a religion of materialism that is their right.  However, I do find the way the “If I can’t feel it, see it, or hear it; it isn’t real,” crowd twist themselves into prattling pretzels over the problem of Dark Matter and Dark Energy extremely interesting. 

The many atheists in the religion of materialism tell us Christians that believing in a world we can’t see all around us making that which we can see possible is drivel.   At the same time, they use their incantation of equations to prove that the world we see is made possible by that which we cannot see.  One of the most fascinating phenomena I’ve ever witnessed is the fact that these evangelists of physical evidence can’t see the hypocrisy of their cult-like adherence to their anti-deity dogma in the face of believing and espousing basically the same set of facts. 

Just a few questions for the High Priests of Pragmatism: 

If the universe has an end than it must have had a beginning.  Every beginning has a cause.  What was the primary cause of the universe? 

Or, if the universe is never ending doesn’t that in and of itself prove the existence of eternity? 

If the universe is infinite yet expanding where would something that is infinite expand?   

If the universe is finite yet expanding into what is it expanding? 

Our solar system is powered by the sun.  Without the sun there would be no planets, no life.  If our sun was not there, there would be no here.  

I am speaking of physical power, physical light, and physical life. 

If we turn our attention to the spiritual reality, God is the source of everything.  And Jesus Christ as the Son of God and His incarnation is the perfect physical expression of God.  Coming to sinful man Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died a sacrificial death, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven where He is seated right now on the right hand of God the Father.  If we repent of our sins accept Jesus as our Savior, He will cleanse us of our sin nature and unite us with Himself.  We will become one with all other believers and one with God.   

Jesus is the power of God.  And without that power there is no light and we walk in darkness.  For Jesus is the light of the world.  He is the light that shines through the darkness and the darkness can’t understand it.  We are descended from our father Adam , and we enter this world with a sin nature separated from God whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.  Unless and until we turn from the material world and embrace the spiritual, we cannot even  understand what has just been said.  It will be gibberish, the ranting of a fool.  For the spirit cannot be understood with the natural mind. 

Forsake the world of darkness and embrace the light.  Leave the City of Man and be translated to the City of God.   

The Laws of Thermodynamics are: 

The Zeroth Law: If two systems are both in thermal equilibrium with a third system, then they are in thermal equilibrium with each other. 

The First Law: The energy gained (or lost) by a system is equal to the energy lost (or gained) by its surroundings. 

The Second Law: Natural processes tend to go only one way, toward less usable energy and more disorder. 

The Third Law: A system’s entropy approaches a constant value as its temperature approaches absolute zero. 

Even in the natural scientists say that the visible is dependent upon the invisible.  That is based on their conjectures.  Christians base their beliefs on the revelation of God.  Though He reveals Himself in all creation we cannot think our way to Him.  We cannot deduce Him or imagine Him apart from His revelation for He is eternal, infinite, omnipotent, and omnipresent.  These are all attributes beyond the grasp of our finite minds.  However, because He has chosen to reveal Himself to us in and through Christ, we know the material is dependent upon the spiritual.   

Scientists say there are three laws, but we all see four.  Which brings me to, the 5th Law of Thermodynamics: No power no light.  Turn from the beggarly forces of the physical and embrace the infinite power of God and let the light of Christ blaze forth in your spirit.  Then let your life become a beacon as that light illuminates the world around you.  

No Jesus no peace.  Know Jesus know peace.
