A Church to be Trusted
A reason to believe historians. Are historians more trustworthy than theologians? They don’t have denominations. They don’t have a pope. They just have other historians checking their work. Self policing. They don’t carry guns. Just a pen. It is mightier than the sword. History records this.
A Reason For Free Speech
A silence only protects the lie. The truth like a candle will always penetrate the darkness. The liar must restrict free speech. Reason and logic also threaten the lie. Seek the truth and you will find it. Speak the truth and you will be attacked by the liars. Be not afraid. The truth will set you free.
A Darkness Overcome
A truth told. A lie diminished. A knowledge increased. A world connected by clouds. Try to get your part right. It will be noticed. Practice, practice, practice. The Lord is your Shepherd. He will guide you. You must believe. You must repent. You must forgive. Ask for help. You will find it.
A Teaching Technique
A recapitulation, a theory first introduced by Victorinus which holds visions in the Apocalypse are repeated and are not necessarily in chronological order. Like the lie, the truth must be repeated to avoid misinterpretation. The chapters of the Apocalypse are not in chronological order.
A Lie in the Making
A victim’s best friend. You have to blame someone or something. You can’t appreciate what you are or what you have. You can’t do anything about it. You can always complain. The system is against you and it must be destroyed. An objective truth can make you free.
A Proven Teaching Technique
A blocking of the truth is still needed to protect the lie. Repetition of the lie is never sufficient. Censorship is also required. The lie can’t handle the truth. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to state the truth every chance you get even though they will come after you.
A Misinformed Person
A distinction without a difference. The lie doesn’t care. Only the truth matters as far as the lie is concerned. The lie can’t handle the truth. It must be blocked. What is your test for the truth? Does the truth need to be protected? No. Only the lie. Is your source for the truth protecting the lie?
A Reason To Read
A reader who is blessed. Promised at the beginning and again at the end. Five times in between for a total of seven. Being blessed is a good thing. Especially during times of confusion. Our leaders are lying. Where do we go for the truth? Can we recognize the truth?
A Need To Overcometh
A letter to the church in Smyrna. Be not afraid. Eternal life is promised to he that overcometh. This is good news. He knows your tribulation. He also knows your works so it does matter what you do. Use your talents. The truth will set you free. Look for it. Use it.
A Word Not Found In Some Bibles
A letter to the church in Ephesus. He knows your works. You may not find the word “test” in your bible. We need to test our leaders. They may be liars. We are being tested. What we do as well as what we say is being tested. We need to test what is being said. Are we being lied to?
