Now I Know That Heaven Will Be A Really Cool Place…

…Because The “King Of Cool” Became Saved And Will Be There.

******************

Not many celebrities or people of world renown will be in heaven according to the Bible:

1 Corinthians 1:26-28  King James Version (KJV)
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

In a worldly way, Steve McQueen had it all.  We baby boomers saw him in “Wanted: Dead Or Alive,” with his one of a kind sawed-off Winchester rifle.  He costarred with Yul Brynner in “The Magnificent Seven.”  He rode his motorcycle in “The Great Escape,” and with Nazis close behind him, he nearly jumped into Switzerland.  I was in fourth grade when this movie was released, and we boys were jumping our bicycles off of everything after watching this movie.  Then, of course, there is the seven minute chase scene in Bullitt, whereby he drives a Mustang through the hills of San Francisco at breakneck speed.  (see the two part You Tubes below covering the chase scene).

Steve had a rough upbringing, starting when his barnstorming daredevil father who worked with a circus as a stunt pilot, left him a couple of months after his birth.  His alcoholic mother, likewise, opted out, and turned him over to relatives.  Steve was also dyslexic.  A cruel step father then intervened in his life, beating him, and Steve eventually ended up in the California Junior Boys Republic in Chino, California (Boys Town).  He served a hitch in the Marines, and later tried acting, receiving his first break that led to a role in the western “Wanted: Dead Or Alive.”  He played roles as an anti hero throughout his acting career.  After receiving worldly success and fame, he realized that something was missing.  And that something, of course, was Jesus Christ.  In spite of all of the worldly success in his life, Steve lacked inner peace.  Prior to being diagnosed with terminal cancer, Steve placed his faith in Jesus Christ.  Listen to the first two You Tubes for Steve McQueen’s testimony and conversion.  The first of the two is narrated by California evangelist Greg Laurie who I love to hear preach the Gospel teaching of salvation.  I am really glad Steve was saved!  Thank you Jesus.

 

Enjoy the following two You Tubes, depicting the conversion of Steve McQueen:

Playing in Concert
June 23, 2017

Read: Romans 12:3–8
Bible in a Year: Esther 9–10; Acts 7:1–21

So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.—Romans 12:5-6
During our granddaughter’s school band concert, I was impressed by how well this group of 11- and 12-year-olds played together. If each of them had wanted to be a solo performer, they could not have achieved individually what the band did collectively. The woodwinds, brass, and percussion sections all played their parts and the result was beautiful music!
To the followers of Jesus in Rome, Paul wrote, “In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us” (Rom. 12:5-6). Among the gifts Paul mentioned are prophecy, service, teaching, encouragement, giving, leadership, and mercy (vv. 7-8). Each gift is to be exercised freely for the good of all (1 Cor. 12:7).
One definition of in concert is “agreement in design or plan; combined action; harmony or accord.” That’s the Lord’s plan for us as His children through faith in Jesus Christ. “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves” (v. 10). The goal is cooperation, not competition.
In a sense, we are “on stage” before a watching and listening world every day. There are no soloists in God’s concert band, but every instrument is essential. The music is best when we each play our part in unity with others. —David C. McCasland
Lord, You are the Conductor of our lives. We want to play Your song of love and grace in concert with Your children today.
There are no soloists in God’s orchestra.

INSIGHT: There are five listings of spiritual gifts in the New Testament: Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11; 12:28-30; Ephesians 4:9-11; and 1 Peter 4:11. In each of these lists the emphasis is not on how many different types of gifts there are, but on how we are to use them in a loving way that promotes unity in the church, builds up the spiritual maturity of the believers, and brings glory to the Lord. To achieve this, Paul tells us not to think too highly or too lowly of ourselves (Rom. 12:3). We are to use our spiritual giftedness in humility (v. 3) and embrace diversity in the body of Christ with sincere love (v. 9) and mutual respect (v. 10).How has God gifted you? How can you use your spiritual gifts to promote unity and harmony in the church? Sim Kay Tee

Bloodshed Is Coming To America

By Jason and David Benham

God warned of this long ago

 

Bloodshed is coming to America, and it won’t be a response to oppression but the result of aggression – against God and our constitutional form of government.
The increasingly violent acts in our streets, town-hall meetings and university campuses are simply birth pangs for a greater upheaval that’s brewing hot – and it’s not by accident.
Although the narrative is that street protests and student uprisings are simply a response to Trump as president or guest speakers with conservative values, the truth is they are coordinated attacks resulting from a subversive anti-God, anti-American ideology that has indoctrinated our universities for more than 50 years.
Let us explain.
In 1963, a book written by Cleon Skousen titled “The Naked Communist” was presented to Congress by Rep A.S. Herlong Jr. of Florida. In his remarks, he submitted the book’s list of goals, which revealed how revolutionaries intended to turn our nation from constitutionalism to communism without firing a single bullet. And the schoolroom provided the perfect staging ground. The full list of goals can be found in the Congressional Record – Appendix, Pages A34-A35, Jan. 10, 1963.
Here are just a few:
17) Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
18) Gain control of all student newspapers.
19) Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations, which are under Communist attack.
20) Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.
21) Gain control of key positions in radio, TV and motion pictures.
24) Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
25) Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio and TV.
26) Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
28) Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”
29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
30) Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”
31) Belittle all forms of American culture, and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.”
32) Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
40) Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
42) Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition, that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use “united force” to solve economic, political or social problems.
Sound familiar? These goals aren’t simply being taught to our youth, they are being caught – and now carried out.
The problem is many of the cultural leaders in this movement are now calling for – and sometimes even demanding – bloodshed.
Listen to some of these horrifying statements:
“I wish they (Republicans) were all f—ing dead!” – Dan Savage
“If I had my way, I would see Katherine Harris and Ken Blackwell strapped down to electric chairs and lit up like Christmas trees. The better to light the way for American democracy and American freedom!” – Democratic talk radio’s Stephen Crockett
“Republicans, whose goal in life is to profit from disaster and who don’t give a hoot about human beings, either can’t or won’t. Which is why I personally think they should be exterminated before they cause any more harm.” – The Village Voice’s Michael Feingold
“Michele (Bachmann), slit your wrist. Go ahead. .. or, do us all a better thing [sic]. Move that knife up about two feet. Start right at the collarbone.” – Montel Williams
“I have zero doubt that if Dick Cheney was not in power, people wouldn’t be dying needlessly tomorrow. … I’m just saying if he did die, other people, more people would live. That’s a fact.” – Bill Maher
“F— God d-mned Joe the God D-mned Motherf—ing Plumber! I want Motherf—ing Joe the Plumber dead.” – Liberal talk-show host Charles Karel Bouley on the air.
“That Scott down there that’s running for governor of Florida. Instead of running for governor of Florida, they ought to have him and shoot him. Put him against the wall and shoot him.” – Rep. Paul Kanjorski, D-Pa.
“Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, we’ve been watching intifada in Palestine, we’ve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? … It’s about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every – They’re gonna say some Palestinian being too radical – well, you haven’t seen radicalism yet.” – U.C. Berkeley lecturer Hatem Bazian
Click here for a full list of calls to violence.
This is serious stuff, folks. Calls for bloodshed are on the rise.
But we should know God warned of this long ago. When a nation devalues His precepts, distorts His principles, and denies His path bloodshed will follow bloodshed.
The prophet Hosea said, “Listen to the word of the LORD, O sons of Israel, for the LORD has a case against the inhabitants of the land, because there is no faithfulness or kindness or knowledge of God in the land. There is swearing, deception, murder, stealing and adultery. They employ violence, so that bloodshed follows bloodshed. Therefore the land mourns, and everyone who lives in it languishes” (Hosea 4:1-3).
Today, we are beginning to languish as a nation – and it’s high time we turn back to God.
“Therefore, return to your God, observe kindness and justice, and wait for your God continually” (Hosea 12:6).
Just as bloodshed is the result of turning away from God, liberty and freedom are His response when we turn back to Him. Let’s pray for this today.

Heaven Or Hell? Wheat And The Tares. Light Verses Darkness. Sheep And The Goats. Eternity Offers Only Two Destinations.

Revelation 14:11  King James Version (KJV)
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

*****************

Those who reject God and His offer of salvation will have no rest forever and ever-a most sobering thought.  But this is the patience of the saints-that the grace of God gives them rest from working for their salvation, but they have an eternal rest and reward prepared for them.  Until then let us labour to enter into that rest, and let us not be weary in well doing.   -D. Pickup

Work, for the night is coming, work thro’ the sunny noon;  Fill brightest hours with labour, rest comes sure and soon.  Give every flying minute something to keep in store;  Work, for the night is coming, when man works no more.   -Annie Coghill

 

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 53

Dan Goodwin    ~    2520: God’s Prophetic Number

Dan Goodwin is a full time evangelist and prophecy teacher.  Now, 99% of his ministry is Bible prophecy.  His calling is to warn the saints that Jesus is coming back soon.

God sealed many truths until the time of the end.

Revelation 19: 9-11 King James Version (KJV)

And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Jesus returns at the end of the 70th week of Daniel, at the end of the Tribulation Period, on a white horse, carrying the title deed to the planet earth, He ends the battle of Armageddon, He comes to the Mount of Olives, goes through the Kidron Valley, and into the eastern gate of Jerusalem.  Jesus starts the millennial reign, the kingdom age, and takes possession of the planet earth.
********************
Dan went into a review of the seven Levitical feasts that are all in Leviticus 23.  These feasts are all of the Lord, and are His prophetic calendar.  Please refer to the 2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 52, also hosted by Dan Goodwin, for a review of these seven feasts.  Dan Goodwin believes the Old Testament will last for 4,000 years, the New Testament will last for 2,000 years, and the millennium will last for 1,000 years for a total of 7,000 years.
Dan said he knew when Christ was coming.  He is coming on the day appointed.
Dan revealed the law of the harvest as well, also on Part 52 of this conference.  He reviewed three different calendars as well.
Dan believes that Revelation 4:1 is the rapture of the church.  Many theologians agree with this view.  He also believes the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 represent seven different church ages within the time of the church.  [I do not agree with this understanding because the seven churches are seven ACTUAL churches.  The Bible does not tell us that they represent seven different periods of history.  When the Bible is silent, we should be also].
The Tribulation Period is not about us.  It is about the 70th week of Daniel, the Holy City, the Tribulation and the children of Israel.  Dan believes the rapture will happen during a new moon in the fall.
The purpose of the seven feasts is to prepare people to dwell with the Lord.  These feasts also are indicative of prophetic events.  
Dan reviewed the three major Sabbaths in the Bible and the Year of the Jubilee, also mentioned in Part 52.  Dan then expounded on the seventy weeks of Daniel.  
In the year of Jubilee, the land goes back to the original owner.  Dan believes the next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.  
The Tribulation Period is not mentioned in the Bible as seven years.  It is two halves of 42 months each.  There are 1260 days in each half.  There are 2520 days in the Tribulation Period.  Dan believes Christ will come in the fall on the Day of Atonement on a white horse.  He will return on the new moon.  Christ’s return revolves around the barley harvests.  
Dan then attempted to endorse 2520 as a significant prophetical number.  I did not agree with his computations.
As summed up in Part 52, I thought that Dan Goodwin has a tremendous burden for Christ’s return and for the lost.  He does a great job revealing the relevance of the Levitical feasts, the Sabbaths, and the Year of Jubilee with Bible prophecy.  He is, however, too dogmatic for me, and skirts the issue of date setting, although he does not set an actual date.                 

Ex Muslim Preaching Christ In Hyde Park, London

Kevin Clarkson, Host of Prophecy in the News:  “God hates Islam and He loves Muslims.”

Lost souls are not the enemy, they are victims of the enemy.

God always has His remnant, and this street preacher is living proof.  As I listened to him, it took only two minutes for me to realize he could preach rings around 98% of American pastors.  Why?  He has not only knowledge, but fears God and not man.  He is anointed, with unction, fervor, passion and zeal.  He loves Jesus and the truth.  He preaches the Bible with boldness and clarity, and does not focus on the latest program.  He is a soul winner.  May the Lord continue to anoint and use him.  He inspires me.  This preaching is what we need all over the world.  I will listen to him next Saturday night.

2015 Second Orlando Prophecy Summit, Part 52

Dan Goodwin    ~    God’s Final Jubilee

2520 are the number of days in the Tribulation Period, Daniel’s 70th week.  Dan’s teaching in his seminar tomorrow revolves around this topic.  The theme of Revelation 4:1 is the rapture.  The church is not mentioned again after Revelation 4:1.  Revelation 19:11 is one of Dan’s favorite verses.  This is the Lord Jesus Christ at the end of the Tribulation Period, at the end of Daniel’s 70th week.  Jesus rides a white horse and returns to the planet earth and to Jerusalem to set up the millennium.  Christ is the first fruits.  He rose bodily.  The rapture is the main harvest.  After that, is the gleaning.  The gleaning are the saved people on earth after the Tribulation Period.

God’s Final Jubilee-  The Jubilee is intertwined in the seven feasts of the Bible.  The seven feasts are in Leviticus, chapter 23:  1)Passover, 2)Unleavened Bread, 3)First fruits, 4)Pentecost, 5)Feast Of Trumpets, 6)Day Of Atonement (Yom Kippur), 7)Feast Of Tabernacles (Type of the millennium).  Feasts 5, 6 and 7 are yet to be fulfilled.  Dan believes the Feast Of Trumpets is the rapture, to be fulfilled during the new moon in the fall.  He believes Jesus will return at the end of the Tribulation Period on the Day of Atonement.  The Jubilee takes place on the Day Of Atonement.  This happens every 49 years, and the 50th year is a Jubilee.

There are three major Sabbaths in the Bible:  1)The seventh day Sabbath.  2)The seven year Sabbath.  The Israelites were not to plant on every 7th year.  Slaves were to be freed.  (For 490 years, the Jews did not keep the Sabbath rest.  The 70 year Babylonian captivity returned all 70 years back to God for the land to rest).  3)Jubilee- Seven of the seven year cycles made 49 years.  Every 49 years there was the big Sabbath called a Jubilee.  The trumpets blew, all the slaves were set free, all debts were forgiven, and all property and land went back to the original owners.  The Jubilee is a reset button or a fresh start.  Some Jews believe 1967 was a Jubilee year.  Dan believes they may be right.  That would make 1917 a Jubilee year as well.  General Allenby took Jerusalem from the Muslim Turks, leading to the Balfour Declaration in 1917.  The Balfour Declaration led to Israel becoming a nation in 1948.  ***   The Jews in Israel are the only nation to lose their sovereignty and come back!   ***  In 1967 Israel was blessed in the six day war.  Israel received property in both 1917 and 1967.  Fifty years from 1967 is 2017.  Jesus Christ is coming back on a Jubilee year, on the Day Of Atonement, and taking back what is His.  It could be 2016 or 2017.

Dan said he is 110% Pre Tribulation rapture in his eschatological beliefs.  Jesus is coming.  Harvest is in the fall.

The Jubilee started in 1500 B.C. with Moses.  The next Jubilee will be the 70th Jubilee.

Dan has a real urgency about the end times and the return of Jesus Christ.  In my opinion, however, he should be careful about date setting in reference to the Jubilees and other dates.  False prophet Harold Camping fell into this trap in his book “1994,” whereby he proposed a similar scenario of dates, ending up with Christ’s return in the fall of the year 1994, around the Day Of Atonement.  He considered 1994 to be a Jubilee of Jubilees, or the fiftieth Jubilee.  He was obviously wrong.

The ABCs of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend.  Actually, God’s plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand.  Here are the ABCs of salvation.

Admit

Admit to God that you are a sinner.  All persons need salvation.  Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin.  Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives.  Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin.  “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”  (Romans 3:23).  Since none of us is perfect, all of us are sinners (Romans 3:10-18).

The result of sin is spiritual death (Romans 6:23).  Spiritual death means eternal separation from God.  By God’s perfect standard we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God.  Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.

Believe

Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin.  God loves each of us.  God offers us salvation.  Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us.  In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus.  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”  (John 3:16).

Confess

Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others.  After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person.  Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision.  Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your local church as a public expression of your faith.  “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”  (Romans 10:9-10).

Lyrics
What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King…
You were the Word at the beginning
One With God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ
What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
You didn’t want heaven without us
So Jesus, You brought heaven down
My sin was great, Your love was greater
What could separate us now
What a wonderful Name it is
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a wonderful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
How sweet is your name, Lord, how good You are
Love to sing in the name of the Lord, love to sing for you all?
Death could not hold You, the veil tore before You
You silenced the boast, of sin and grave
The heavens are roaring, the praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names
What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
You have no rival, You have no equal
Now and forever, Our God reigns
Yours is the Kingdom, Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name, above all names
What a powerful Name it is
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a powerful Name it is
Nothing can stand against
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus

Profound Insight And Quotations From The Sword Of The Lord – January 27, 2017 And February 10, 2017

INSIGHT:

When the Lord Jesus Christ hung upon the cross, cosmic events accompanied by signs and wonders occurred between heaven and earth. A supernatural darkness came over the earth midday. Many theologians believe that for the first time in eternity past the fellowship between the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—was interrupted. As Christ took our sins upon Himself on the cross, His Father could not stay in fellowship with Him. An earthquake opened the tombs of some Old Testament believers, who were brought back to life. So dramatic were these events that even a Gentile, such as the Roman centurion who oversaw Jesus’s crucifixion, made a declaration of faith.

***************

The world will not be Christianized, but it should be evangelized.  -Vance Havner

How often a good sister or brother rises to testify, “I want to live such a godly life that sinners will see my daily walk and be saved!”  Living a godly life is important; but the first condition of soul winning is this: Get up and go after sinners! -John R. Rice

Christ’s last act was winning a soul.  His last command was to win a soul.  His last prayer was forgiveness to a soul.

The Lord has given you much light from the Word and will hold you responsible for its use.  If you obey Him and walk in the light, you will have more.  If not, the light will be withdrawn.  -George Muller

I don’t know any more about theology than a jackrabbit does about Ping-Pong, but I’m on my way to Glory!  -Billy Sunday

A good character is the best tombstone.  Those who loved you and were helped you will remember you when forget-me-nots are withered.  Carve your name on hearts and not on marble.  -Charles Spurgeon

There is no gathering a rose without a thorn until we get to Beulah land.  -D.L. Moody

Our greatest trouble is, as I see it, that we have Christianity without Christ; forgiveness without repentance; salvation without regeneration; politics without God; and Heaven without Hell.  -Oscar Lowry

Do not in the darkest night what you’d shun in broad daylight.

The chief danger of the church today is that it is trying to get on the same side as the world instead of turning the world upside down.  Our Master expects us to accomplish results, even if they bring opposition and conflict.  Anything is better than compromise, apathy, and paralysis.  God, give us an intense cry for the old-time power of the Gospel and the Holy Ghost!  -A.B. Simpson

I’m more impressed with what a preacher gets thrown out of than with what he gets invited to.  -Tom Malone

In some circles, God has been abridged, reduced, modified, edited, changed, and amended until He is no longer the God whom Isaiah saw, high and lifted up.  -A.W. Tozer

I hope I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an “honest man.”  -George Washington

Youth today is asking, “Who am I?”  But few are willing to face what they really are-sinners separated from God.  -Vance Havner

Many people will not kill a mouse without publicizing it.  Samson killed a lion and said nothing about it.  Say much of what the Lord has done for you.  Say little of what you have done for the Lord.  Do not speak a self-glorifying sentence.  -Charles Spurgeon

Men will wrangle for religion, write for it, fight for it, die for it-anything but live for it.  -D.L. Moody

If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on to prosper; but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and counsel, there is no telling how great a catastrophe shall come upon us and bury our glory in profound obscurity.  -Daniel Webster

You may be deeply religious and still be lost.  It is sad but true that many will be in Hell not because of lack of religion, but because of their religion.  -Curtis Hutson

The religion that makes a man look sick certainly won’t cure the world.  -Phillips Brooks
