"Take time to work, it is the price of success. Take time to think, it is the source of power. Take time to play, it is the secret of perpetual youth. Take time to read, it is the foundation of wisdom. Take time to worship, it is the highway to reverence. Take time to be friendly, it is the road to happiness. Take time to love and to be loved, it is the privilege of the Almighty God."

Yard Word from Ras Charles published in "One World Beat" July, 2005

The true worship of God is a continuous action. Everything we do and create has to reflect the righteousness of God, so what caused the chosen of God to fall into a state of moral and mental decomposition? How did it happen in such condition?

How do we see ourselves, what is our vision, what are our aspirations, who is leading us, what kind of learning influences our thoughts, what are we doing to cause oneself to relate to us? How do we see others, as equals or as prey? What is preventing people from seeking the truth? Are their religious affiliations structured to prevent the influence of truth in their lives?

The lives of people (not all) are full of evil today, but they fail to recognize it, because their concept of evil has changed. Through deception, they visualize evil as being accepted as it is every event how the Devil has deceived the whole world into worshiping him and not God. The Devil has been successful in his craftiness by causing man/ woman to disassociate himself/ herself from the worship of God.

Only when we truly overstand how cultural expression determines worship, will we totally comprehend how to build and live in this world where all of the people love and worship God. Since the greatest obstacle preventing our reconciliation with God will be the Devil, it stands to reason that we must recognize the character and culture that reveal His presence and influence.

Let us note that a world under the Devil's influence characterized by widespread degeneration, reducing the people far below ordinary standards of civilized life and conduct. "It has been the inaction of those who could have acted, the indifference of those who should have known better, the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most, that has made it possible for evil to triumph."

What you are is God's gift to you, what you become is your gift to God.

Lone on One by His way.

Quote From Ras Charles

**   If you keep on doing what you have always done

you will keep on being what you have always been  DO THE RIGHT THING

 

 

 ** Knowing God leads to self control and humbleness -

self controlled leads to patience and endurance -

which leads to Godliness.

Godliness leads to love for all people

and with that you will grow to have that divine love we all desire

so we can share it as god wanted us to do.

INTO THE HANDS OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL

IS GIVENA MARVELOUS POWER FOR GOOD OR EVIL -

THE SILENT UNCONSCIOUS, UNSEEN INFLUENCE

OF HIS LIFE, THIS IS SIMPLY THE

CONSTANTRADIATION OF WHAT MAN REALLY IS,

NOT WHAT HE PRETENDS TO BE ...
