When we become one with God what can we do but live forever.
Real creativity does not exist as all efforts to be so are simply a reworking of existing elements. Who can make a fourth dimension? Who can add a new colour to a rainbow?
Who is more a child of God? Those who possess a thousand houses or those who without one of their own possess a dozen in which their knock at the door would cause instant pleasure to those inside.
Matthew 13: 58. Those Nazareens could have believed in Jesus as their Saviour from the Romans but not as Saviour from their sins for they loved their sins.

It requires a pure heart for us to have clean hands.
A Christian must not choose his neighbour but must take the one whom God sends.
Christ's death washed away our sins and His resurrection disabled death, and that is what must be believed. The 'how' and 'why' are not Christianity, they are simply theories about how it works.
God sees us not as we are but as we shall be.
There are many who want their Christian faith to endorse their earthly lifestyle but this can never happen.
A temporal life not well spent means all eternity not well spent.
It is unbelief which stands in the way of salvation.
No ambition to be a motive for action; no wish to surpass another; no longing after the praise of others for these are worldly desires and worthless if eternal life with God is our aim.
When you ask God to draw nearer to you remember that He is already in you.

When someone finds God then that which he has is called 'religion' by those who have not yet found Him..
When each and every mortal dies they don the cloak of immortality.
When a Christian dies and leaves this mortal life then school for them has finished and holidays have begun.
Whilst time and fashions might change how morality is perceived, Truths, as expressed in the Gospels cannot and never will change.
Each and every one of us is a temple of the living God, sadly defiled, maybe, but if God ever leaves it then that body becomes a ruin and no longer fit for habitation.
The Will and the Conscience of a Christian should combine like two raindrops on a windowpane.
Christians are called to BE; not to Judge. "Do not judge, or you too will be judged." (Matthew 7: 1.)

Let go of Life. Get hold of God.
Mark 15: 3. 'He answered nothing.' In situations where we resent slights against us and respond with what we considered to be righteous anger and distress we should never forget that our saviour, when reviled, held His Peace. Let us do likewise.
Instead of doing God's Will we request a definition and try to intellectualize His commands so that when He tells us to love our enemies we ask, “How?” and then, “All of them?” “Even those who are very wicked?” until finally His command fades into nothing amid the How, the Where and the When, questions.
Some folk are so absorbed with the facts surrounding their existence they have little time for their meaning.
God will give us the strength to face those things which happen to us but not the cloud of worrying things that might happen. (Matthew 6:34.)

When Jesus told us to take up our cross He tells us that this life is not about avoidance of suffering or a matter of self preservation.
Whatever our cross we must willingly shoulder it.
Christ's coming began the conversion of gentiles as before the passion the One God was known only in Judea.
Judas, one of the Apostles proves that no society is without evil.
Christ also washed the feet of Judas during supper thereby treading underfoot the universal tendency to pride..(Luke. 14: 16.)

Evolution is a not a doctrine of biological improvement but of biological change, some of which have been better(?) some worse(?)
Christ is God's Forgiveness. It is the movement of the loved towards the unlovely.
Liberal Christianity can only offer an ineffectual response to increasing unbelief.
One should love according to need and not according to merit.
