Manifesting the Great I AM

Incarnation Manifesting the Great I AM Tuesday, December 22, 2020 For all practical purposes, the dualistic mind is not able to accept the orthodox teaching that Jesus is both fully human and fully divine at the same time.

Public Virtue For the Good of the World Friday, November 6, 2020 God is the ultimate nonviolent one, so we dare not accept any theory of salvation—much less socialization, economics, or politics—that is based on violence, exclusion, social pressure, or moral coercion.
