Audrey,my dear Bredren,
It is indeed iri to be conversing again.
Let it be be known publically on this forum even as i call myself a christian I do not adhere to or support or condone any part, past, present and future of the CORPORATE INSTITUTION THAT IS COMMONLY CALLED "THE CHURCH"
THIS CORPORATION THROUGH CENTURIES OF ABUSE WITHIN AND WITHOUT IS NOW IN PUBLIC, THAT IS ,VISIBLY, DISARRAY.
IT IS GOVERNED BY CORPORATE EGO/GREED and has nothing to do with the TRUTH or FAITHFULNESS nor the SPIRIT, that is, in it's spiritual relationship with the father which guides us in the spiritual realm.
In the last 4000 years there have only been, collectively 300 years of peace.In the last 2000 years we have witnessed the decimation of millions of people in the "churche's" name.
Because of this it as an institution with blood on its hands has no rights, has lost its rights to speak on any moral issues (let alone spiritual ones).
This can be seen today particularly in its legal duties of relationships, the family, in western society today. I feel, the "church" can be held responsible for placing the basic unit of society/community in turmoil, where trust has been eroded, where there is strife, unrest, disarray, disharmony.
These seeds were put into place when, how, why?
InI are the fruit. InI know.
In this institution you will not be able to find many born again saints i can tell you that.
So never let it be said that I personally proffer indoctrinated rhetoric, dogma, misinterpretations because whatever i post here occasionaly of my faith is long and hard fought for with my life. What I post here is what I have studied, have been taught and have been shown. It has been a long journey to get here and to survive as only the other day i got a death threat from an irish Roman catholic when i was explained to him what his indoctrination meant.
Oh well have never got along with the irish....
As for SelassieI ,i love him because he was a baptised believer as i am and loved the Lord, as I do. InI are overcomers together and whatever he said or did in whatever language, he is with his Beloved One now revealing in his face the true glory of "The Defender of the Faith".
DOESN'T MATTER ABOUT HIS WHITE JESUS PORTRAIT ON HIS OFFICE WALL AS HE IS FACE TO FACE WITH HIM.
So IS my other love, Bob Marley, HE WAS BAPTISED.
The Bible tells us it is not for all, but for the intitates, those that have the eyes to see and the ears to hear. So be it, and those that deny so be it. I will not as I have because I have overcome i have been shown glimpses into the mystery.
It also describes vividly who it isn't for, I hope you don't count yourself amongst them, see Revelation 22
The spirit speaks to the mind through the heart, in every language that is a mystery in itself.
"SEALS"? Biblical? SAY WHAT?
faith, hope and love, judah
