The challenge I have with religion is I have never seen one that gave more Freedom once someone joined than the person had before. I have yet to see a religious group that creates Peace, Joy and Happiness outside of an occasional emotional outpouring that could easily be mistaken for a meeting of sales professionals at a convention.
“He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind,to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” – Luke 4:16-21
But then one day in the midst of my darkest night a sweet whisper came and said, “The Truth sets you Free!” “The ‘year of the Lord’s favor’ started with Jesus, He is the end of the law for all who believe!” “All laws are fulfilled through Love!” No laws, no rules just LOVE! LOVE that is Divine and therefore unable to be comprehended or explained by me a mere mortal! This Love that I speak of and write about that is beyond human understanding is The Key to Peace, Hope, Joy and a Life in a Relationship with The God Who Is Love!
This is why I write, speak, travel to the four corners of the earth and why I exist!
Knowing The Truth
Who sets me Free!
