Christmas 2018

MERRY CHRISTMAS:

 “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

17 Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, keep the commandments.”

18 Which ones?” he inquired.

Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony, 19 honor your father and mother,’[a] and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

20 All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

  1. Ignoring the wealthy for a moment, how close can any of us come to selling our possessions and giving to the poor? How many in our families would be prepared to join us down this path? What, exactly, is the practical Christian of today to do upon reading verse 21 above? Blessings of the season to all!

    1. “What, exactly, is the practical Christian of today to do upon reading verse 21 above?”

      Exactly what it says. Do any of you know Russ and Bickley Simpson of Milton? Russ is dead but I believe Bickley is still alive. House on The Vineyard, house in Florida, fishing yacht, millions of dollars. They got rid of it all. Verse 21 to the tee.

      I’m not gonna do it but if anyone really wants to it is quite simple. Main ingredients; Guts, faith, desire, vision.

  2. Sad, Sad, Sad.

    Spirits reincarnate on earth because they are being given the opportunity to accelerate their learning process to achieve higher consciousness levels. This occurs because they become involved with so many more experiences in the physical world.
    AgreeKnowing your reincarnational background, but not knowing the true nature of your present self, is useless. You cannot justify or rationalize present circumstances by saying, ‘This is because of something I did in a past life’, for within yourself now is the ability to change negative influences. You may have brought negative influences into your life for a given reason, but the reason always has to do with understanding, and understanding removes those influences.

    AgreeIf you examine your own life now carefully, the challenges that you have set for yourself will become apparent. This is not easy to do, but it is within the grasp of each individual. If you release yourself from hatred, then you automatically release yourself from any such relationships in the future – or any experiences that are based upon hatred.

    AgreeWhen you get to the point that you realize you are forming your day-to-day existence and the life that you know, then you can begin to alter your own mental and psychic patterns, and therefore change your daily environment. This realization, however, should go hand in hand with a deep intuitional knowledge of the capabilities of the inner self. These two factors together can release you from any difficulties that have arisen in past lives. The entire structure of your existence will begin to change with these realizations, and an acceleration of spiritual and psychic growth will develop.

    AgreeWhen most people think of reincarnation, they think in terms of a one-line progression in which soul perfects itself in each succeeding life. This is a gross simplification. There are endless varieties of this one theme, individual variations. The process of reincarnation is used in many ways, therefore, and in this time of rest individuals must decide on the unique way in which reincarnation will be of use. Some, for example, choose to isolate various characteristics in a given life, and work on these almost exclusively, basing a given existence upon, say, one main theme…Specific creative abilities might be specialized in the same manner. If you looked at these lives as a series of progressions in usual terms, then you would be left with many questions unanswered…Some will choose progression at an easier rate and in a more balanced manner. They will keep all the strands of personality working at once, so to speak, and even meet again and again people they have known in other lives. They will work out problems at a rather easy rate, rather than in, say an explosive way.

    Federal Prosecutors Need a Watchdog, Too
    Lawyers at the Justice Department get little oversight from their own inspector general. That’s a problem
