When God gave us Himself it was for His desire for us to know how
to live. Lifeís quality is so often stolen by the squirming quagmire of
mankindís bickering and lust for power. It is not so much a struggle for
freedom when we reduce to a system of domination. People have little to
fight for who feel defeated where the innocent are trampled upon, and
subjugation resides as the norm. Many have heard of the philosophy of
ďDumb them down,Ē where manipulations are made easier for the ruling
classes. Evil displays little mercy unless hidden behind a scheming
advantage to establish further control. In an avalanche of horror, the
earth displays itself; how man has failed man. God gave us the call
to a better way, to show true freedom of heart, and love of life,
regardless of social conditions that would condemn or bless one.

Vibrant ethical morals are abandoned when a people adjust to living
under the clout of fear out of complacency and apathy. Status quo injects
insecurities of losing material comforts where selfishness and greed have
destroyed the decency of many. The poor are despised and pounded as
cattle. The war is in the crux of who we have become; hidden in the fears
of our own demise. Anger drives decisions to satisfy cravings of blind
revenge. How powerful have we become? What do we receive from the
hierarchy of man? Children scream and are not heard. Leadership then
reduces to cowardly decisions that fragment the unity no school can
repair. Pray God helps us all, as we fall from His Grace, in hopes
of a day where His Glories of Truth guide those who remain.

Knowledge of love opens a heart to suffer
Treasure His word that commands life
No value can be placed on proper instructions
The Holy Spirit delivers the heart of truth
Baptismís seal is for the remission of sins
Gift of the Holy Spirt is the grace of forgiveness
He calls for giving hearts in loving submission
Only a humble keen spirit receives Godís truths
Through faith Christ frees us from the curse of death
Goodwill in His service to Him pleases Him
He calls to rise from sin to an eternal inheritance
Serve God in the grace He has given
Exercising the implanted word is able to save a soul
Expect nothing if doubting but be thankful in faith

Embrace the freedom
He delivers to those that love Him.

Darkness's emptiness burns those who touch it.
