Freedom is mostly in the mind. That makes it within your grasp. Reach out and grab it. - The Rev.
"Freedom (liberty) is a sacred thing. When I was in my twenties I investigated a certain church. They believed in a one-world government. How foolish I was to consider joining it. A one-world (globalist) government means that that government will have full control over everything. Even if it appears benevolent at first, in time it will become corrupt. Then there will be no looking back. You and everybody else will be owned. You will be trapped in an all powerful and intricate web and there will be no escape."
On talking to teenage children who may be unhappy with the teaching of gospel principles in my home:
"I am your father and I have a solemn duty to tell you of certain things that I have come to believe, over the span of my lifetime, are true. Whether you want to hear those things or not doesn't matter. I will talk about them anyways. If you don't want to hear about them that is your choice, but I will be secure in the knowledge that I have done my job."
"The root of all addictions including substances like alcohol, drugs, or tobacco is an addiction to a thought process. It is a 'mental process' that can 'stick' in a person's mind, even from their youth. That also applies to things like sexual addiction, neurotic thinking, narcissism, etc. And that is why we should often welcome change instead of recoiling from it. " - The Rev.
"Christ gave us a commandment in the Bible not to address anyone as 'thou fool'. I confess that I find that a difficult commandment to keep sometimes. Nevertheless, I try to be obedient." - The Rev.
