Real Limits to Growth 2

What are the Real Limits to Growth?

Limits to Growth was published in 1972, and its assorted charts and graphs made remarkably real that, as the authors of that book put it at the time, “If the present growth trends in world population, industrialization, pollution, food production, and resource depletion continue unchanged, the limits to growth on this planet will be reached sometime within the next one hundred years. The most probable result will be a rather sudden and uncontrollable decline in both population and industrial capacity.”

The scenarios, which are called World3, showed how population growth and natural resource use interacted to impose limits to industrial growth, a novel and even controversial idea at the time.

 Though Limits to Growth was the biggest-selling environmental book of all time, with 30 million copies sold — it wasn’t enough to divert our trajectory. People convinced themselves the limits to growth were far enough away they’d be someone else’s problem.

Real Limits to Growth

In 1992, this was no longer true. On the 20th anniversary of the publication of Limits to Growth, the team updated its book called Beyond the Limits. Already in the 1990s there was compelling evidence that humanity was moving deeper into unsustainable territory. Beyond the Limit argued that in many areas we had “overshot” our limits, or expanded our demands on the planet’s resources and sinks beyond what could be sustained over time.

The new book proved to be accurate on many of the basic trend extrapolations: the gap between rich and poor has only grown wider in the past three decades. Thirty years ago, it seemed unimaginable that humanity could expand its numbers and economy so soon to alter the Earth’s natural systems.Real Limits to Growth

The most common criticisms of the original World3 model were that it underestimates the power of technology. But even with the most effective technologies and the greatest economic resilience that seems possible, this model generated scenarios of collapse because of a shortage of resources:

  • The most obvious limit on food production is land. Millions of acres of cultivated land are being degraded by processes such as soil erosion and salinization, while the cultivated area remains roughly constant.
  • Only one-fifth of the planet’s original forest cover remains in large tracts of undisturbed natural forests. Although forest cover in temperate areas is stable, tropical forest area is plummeting
  • Another limit to food production is water. Per capita water withdrawals are going down because of environmental problems, rising costs, or scarcity.
  • Another limit to growth is today’s world population of 7.2 billion. Can you believe 9 billion people predicted in 2050 , when it was only 4 billion people in 1974, the year of the first Skylab? How coincidental is the hockey stick graph of both population and carbon emissions.Real Limits to Growth
  • More than 80 percent of year 2000 commercial energy use comes from non- renewable fossil fuels—oil, natural gas, and coal. The underground stocks of fossil fuels are going continuously and inexorably down. The stock of reserves is finite and non-renewable; the peak for oil production will occur within the next decade.
  • If an eventual nine billion people on earth all consumed materials at the rate of the average American, world steel production would need to rise by a factor of five, copper by a factor of eight, and aluminum by a factor of nine.

From source to sink, the processing, fabricating, handling, and use of materials leaves a trail of pollution. Look at the prediction for pollution on the graph above: it is right off the chart beginning right now. Imagine the cost to bring this back to normal.

So it is predicted that  industrial output begins to decline around 2040 because the rising expense of protecting the population from starvation, pollution, erosion, and resource shortage cuts into the capital available for growth.

The fundamental problem arises because society’s implicit goals are to exploit nature, enrich the elites, and ignore the long term. As a result, society will develop technologies and markets that destroy the environment, widen the gap between rich and poor, and Real Limits to Growthoptimize for short-term gain. In short, society develops technologies and markets that hasten a collapse instead of preventing it.

CRY OF REPENTANCE 2

REPENTANCE

“This is the pledge of My Spirit; I tell you solemnly, he who sows the seeds of self-indulgence will reap a harvest of corruption and when he faces Me in the Day of Judgment I will tell him:

“Go! away from Me; go to the Corrupt one who corrupted you!” unless I hear a cry of repentance.”                                                         October 24, 1991

“In spite of the multiple intercessions of your Holy Mother and in spite of My Warnings, from the time in Fatima to this epoch, none of My Warnings have been respected;

The hours are fleeing and a mighty host such as the world has never seen, nor will ever see again is at hand! Few men will be left; how I shout to break through your deafness! A nation roaring like the roar of many waters will flood the world again, with fire and brimstone; I am rich in forgiving, but I hardly hear any cry of repentance;  oh men of little faith! men of arguments only!”                                          November 13, 1991END TIMES

“I am a God full of pity and My Heart can be touched; come and learn:

  •  in the morning sow your seed of love;
  • at noon sow your seed of peace;
  • in the evening sow your seed of reconciliation;

Then go and collect your harvest and offer it to Me, your Father in Heaven, and I will tell you: ‘From above I call to you all: ‘Come! Come and make peace with Me, your God and you will have My Blessings; return to Me and you will live forever.’                               June 18, 1994

FOREVER LEGACY OF CLIMATE CHANGE 2

DRASTIC INCREASES IN TEMPERATURES AND SEA LEVELS

We are about to look at the drastic increases in temperatures and sea levels that will alter the earth not just for centuries, but for millennia. Rob Wilder and Dan Kammen wrote an interesting commentary.

What we experienced in the latest hurricanes may well be a prelude to more monster hurricanes, Biblical rain events, and coastal inundations brought about by extreme weather and vastly higher sea levels. The higher temperatures of the oceans that cause hurricanes in the first place will not go away.

Humanity’s continuing failure to bring our enormous carbon emissions under control will have planet-altering impacts that could continue for hundreds of years.

The sea level increases we’re accustomed to seeing today — rising at 1.2 inches per decade is considerably faster than 50 years ago. The geological record indicates that seas might have risen in the distant past at truly astounding rates — one foot per decade for centuries. Nothing remotely like that has been known in recorded human history. Yet you can’t say that having happened before, that it won’t happen again.forever legacy climate change

The last two decades of the 20th century have been hottest in the last 400 years, according to climate studies, but this is only the beginning. Given current trends, keeping to the stated Paris Agreement goal of warming by no more than about 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit (2 degrees Celsius) looks quite unlikely. Temperatures 7 to 10 degrees F hotter than today’s would wreak havoc with the oceans, agriculture, and, in the warmest parts of the world, go beyond human endurance.

 Global sea level rose about 8 inches in the last century, but this was only the beginning. Inertia in the climate system is enormous. The massive inertia in the climate system, which means changes in temperature and sea level, will go on and on long past the year 2100. If greenhouse gas emissions continue at roughly today’s levels for another century, that may mean that sea levels 500 years from now would be nearly 50 feet higher as the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets melt. That would mean losing large swaths of coastal areas worldwide. This is where the science takes us. forever legacy climate change

So what is the way out? If there were a simple path, we’d already be following it. Most countries are either, by default, choosing inaction or are moving far too slowly to make deep cuts in greenhouse gas emissions.

 But as renewable energy experts, we believe climate change presents opportunities: for cleaner air, new industries, job growth, and stronger economies. This is already happening in Northern Europe as renewables are simply growing much more attractive than dirty fossil fuels. And we need initial government support for clean-energy industries, as well as long-term funding for research and development on renewable energy, energy efficiency, and battery technologies.

Many solutions are well-known and are readily at hand. The first step might be enacting simple and transparent carbon taxes that begin to reflect true current and long-term costs of dumping CO2 into the atmosphere

But without large-scale coordinated action on many levels across government, academia, and the private sector including the United States, our efforts to drastically cut emissions will fall far short of what chemistry and physics demand. The atmosphere and climate do not respond to hopes or aspirations.

It’s not easy for humans to look far into the future; we are accustomed to thinking that every mistake can be undone and that the earth is unchanging. But the stakes with climate change are uniquely so high, and the damages to the planet and society so enormous, that scientists, the press, politicians, and the public need to peer one century down the road and imagine what kind of world we will be leaving to our descendants.

The geological record shows that unless we rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we will be locking in drastic increases in temperatures and sea levels that will alter the earth not just for centuries, but for millennia.

NEGATIVE CARBON EMISSIONS 2

THE FOLLY OF ‘MAGICAL SOLUTIONS’

But there is barely any public discussion of how to bring about the extra “negative emissions” needed to reduce the stock of CO2 

Global levels of carbon emissions have skyrocketed in recent decades. Global emissions from all human activities will reach an all-time record 45 billion tons in 2017, following a projected 2% rise in burning fossil fuels such as oil, gas and coal, the study revealed.

Sixty years ago, the world spewed only 9.2 billion tons per year.

TWO years ago the world pledged to keep global warming “well below” 2°C hotter than pre-industrial times. Climate scientists and campaigners purred. Politicians patted themselves on the backbiochar solutions

Setting unattainable emissions targets is not a policy — it’s an act of wishful thinking!

A focus on magical solutions leaves little room for the practical. When policy debate detaches from reality, up can become down in a hurry. For climate policy to succeed, it must move beyond magical solutions to those that actually work.

SWEDEN’S parliament passed a law which obliges the country to have “no net emissions” of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere by 2045. It demands that remaining carbon sources are offset with new carbon sinks. In other words greenhouse gases will need to be extracted from the air.

The Super GREED Rich 2

Super Rich: The Greed Game

As the credit crunch bites and a global economic crisis threaten, the documentary,  Super Rich: The Greed Game reveals how the super-rich have made their fortunes, and the rest of us are picking up the bill.Super GREED Rich

Robert Peston, the BBC’s Business Editor, speaks to some of the heavy hitters in hedge-fund and private equity scene. Along with the investment bankers, these are the very people who have been blamed for the current financial woe’s of the world.

The film highlights the fact that these very few people have become super rich, and while the global economy is collapsing around us, they get to sail off into the sunset, with bulging pockets, to lay back, and wait for the next set of opportunities that will come along.

This is a man-made problem, created by the devotion to the false idea that an unregulated free market is the best thing for everyone. This would be true in a perfect world, but there is no single example of a free market on earth. Every government is lobbied by monopolistic companies, and every government subsidizes its uncompetitive industry, which may be failing at the time.

One of the real problems was a lack of regulation in the banking sector. When there were no rules of governance then people cheated and committed fraud. The financial crisis of 2008 was the largest fraud ever seen by the global community and its effects continue today. secrets super rich

The one film out there that explains the greed game is Inside Job a must see film. It takes Reagan and Bush to task for tax cuts that benefit the wealthy; it criticizes Clinton for encouraging derivatives and Obama for failing to deliver on the promise of reform.Super Rich Greed

It’s an artificial situation, and if we deem it unfair to the collective whole of human society, then as a matter of ‘fairness’ we need to change the rules of the game.

WHY SO MUCH EVIL? 2

Why so much evil?

WHY SO MUCH EVIL IN THE WORLD?

So many incurably ill people in hospitals, so many handicapped children, so many human lives completely denied ordinary happiness on this earth.  There is so much evil in the world.Why Evil?

How to continue to trust in a God who is supposed to be a merciful Father, when suffering, injustice, sickness, and death seem to dominate the larger history of the world as well as our smaller daily lives?

How could God have permitted so many wars, concentration camps, the Holocaust?

Why, then, hasn’t He eliminated-and does He persist in not eliminating-suffering in the world He created?

God created man as rational and free, thereby placing Himself under man’s judgment. His wisdom and omnipotence are placed, by free choice, at the service of creation.

There is also the intervention of the evil spirit, who, with even greater shrewdness than man.

WHY DOES GOD TOLERATE SUFFERING?

Evil exists because freedom exists. We are free to do what we want and some people choose to do evil for various reasons. It could all start with one person doing evil which affects other people and could lead to them also doing evil. If there is evil in the world then it is because of us humans.

A lot of simple things that God talked about like greed, jealousy, selfishness and whatever, could all lead to us doing evil deeds.

Children wouldn’t have to starve in Africa if we all chose to do good. We definitely have the money and resources to heal the world but the people who have the most money and power are greedy and instead of doing what is right and use the money for good, they use it for themselves. We think we know best all the time. If we had just been good and obeyed God we would not have this kind of trouble.

God taught us to be loving, be generous and all these positive things that show love and affection. If we all did these things then we wouldn’t have such big problems in the world because it would all be love.

Don’t blame God for the evil in the world. Look at yourself and make a change for the better. God gave us the freedom and responsibility, but because he knew what was best for us he also gave us advice on what we should do to live a better life, but sometimes we ignore the advice, thinking that we know better, and then we end up in a world full of evil and blame God when it is our own faults.

We brought these issues on ourselves.

god proof

 God is Love and precisely for this He gave His Son, to reveal Himself completely as Love. This happened exactly as prophet Isaiah affirmed: “It was our infirmities that he bore, /We had all gone astray like sheep, / each following his own way; / But the Lord laid upon him / the guilt of us all”                                                                                 Isaiah 53:4-6.

It is the revelation not only that God is Love but also the One who “pours out love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit” Romans 5:5.

God proof

In our world today humanity is pushing God away. He is like a dim light. Humanity appears to be walking in darkness; it is losing its bearing.  There is a deep spiritual battle going on between the World of Light and the World of Darkness:  “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world-rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12

“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 God does have an antidote: the Love of God. 1 John 4:7-21

In the end, the spiritual man will have the advantage over the man who sets himself up as an unbending judge of God’s actions. Continue reading WHY SO MUCH EVIL? 2

The 11th Hour film proposes potential solutions to these problems by calling for restorative action by the reshaping and rethinking of global human activity through technology, social responsibility and conservation.

Hasn’t anybody noticed the droughts, floods and heat waves … the pollution of the rivers, the clear cuttings of forests and the plastic that now exists in the oceans? These are symptoms of a broken connection between humans and nature.

Vassula Reydon, who is on the podium, received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Today, I invite you all to pray with fervor for the renewal of the Church, for the second Coming of the Lord: for the second Pentecost                                                                                                                                                 April 22, 1990

“I have little time left now; these Times of Mercy and Grace are almost over; I am not concealing My Plans, nor am I hiding My Face, I am revealing as never before My Face; and you, My beloved ones, your duty is to go and spread these Messages of the Second Pentecost, and what the Spirit teaches.”                                                                             August 6, 1991

“I will send you My Holy Spirit in full force on all mankind, and as a fore sign I will display portents in heaven as never before; there will be a second Pentecost so that My Kingdom on earth will be restored; many of you ask: “when? when will all these things take place?” it is not for anyone to know times or dates that the Father has decided by His own authority.”                                                                                  December 10,1995

THE SECOND COMING 2

       Thunder of Justice Second ComingTHE SECOND COMING

We have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just Judge“.

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”       Revelation 22:12

The second coming is soon. In fact, Jesus promised His disciples that He would come again.   “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”                                                                                                                   John 14:1-3

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”                                                                                                                                          1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

“Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”                                                            Matthew 25:34

Existence of the general judgment

  1. Few truths are more often or more clearly proclaimed in Scripture than that of the general judgment. To it the prophets of the Old Testament refer when they speak of the “Day of the Lord” (Joel 3:4; Ezekiel 13:5; Isaiah 2:12), in which the nations will be summoned to judgment. The Savior Himself not only foretells the event but graphically portrays its circumstances.                                                                                                                                      Matthew 24:27; 25:31
  2. “He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead” Nicene Creed. Several Fathers of the first four centuries advanced the theory of a thousand years’ terrestrial reign of Christ with the saints to precede the end of the World
  3. Justice demands that, in order to form a proper estimate of the good or bad actions of all, a general judgment should take place. Not only that rewards and punishments should await us in the next life but that they should be awarded by a public and general judgment.

Signs that are to precede the general judgment

The Second Coming, however, is a climax of what God is doing with the world to prepare it for Christ’s millennial kingdom. The Second Coming of Christ is preceded by a number of world-shaking events that must occur before Christ can return.

The Scriptures mention certain events which are to take place before the final judgment. These predictions were meant to keep the end of the world present to the minds of Christians.

Here are seven signs of the last judgment:

Concerning this sign the Savior says: “And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come”.        Matthew 24:14

Conversion of the Jewsconversion Jews

“That blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles should come in. And so all Israel should be saved as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob”.                                  Romans 11:25-26

A Great Apostasygreat apostasy

There first must come a revolt or apostasy. The Fathers and interpreters understand by this revolt a great reduction in the number of the faithful through the abandonment of the Christian religion by many nations. “But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?”.                                          Luke 18:8

The Reign of Antichristreign Antichrist

Paul indicates as another sign of the day of the Lord, the revelation of the son of perdition, “The man of sin” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “it is the last hour, and as you have heard that Antichrist is coming.” 1 John 2:18. There will arise a powerful adversary of Christ, who will seduce the nations by his wonders, and persecute the Church.

Extraordinary Unnatural Disturbances of Natureunnatural occurrences

The judgment will be preceded by unwonted and terrifying disturbances of the physical universe Matthew 24:29; Luke 21:25-26. The wars, pestilences, famines, and earthquakes are foretold.

A Universal Conflagrationuniversal occurrence

A general conflagration will not annihilate the present creation, but will change its form and appearance (2 Peter 3:10-13; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; Revelation 3:3; 16:15). Natural science shows the possibility of such a catastrophe in the ordinary course of events; yet this origin will be entirely miraculous.

The Trumpet of Resurrectiontrumpets resurrection

A voice or trumpet will awaken the dead to resurrection: “in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye … a trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”  1 Corinthians 15:52;   (1 Thessalonians 4:15; John 5:28) “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:30 There will be an appearance in the sky of the Cross on which the Savior died or else of a wonderful cross of light.

Circumstances accompanying the general judgment

Time

The Disciples asked the Savior, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” He answered: “It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in His own power” Acts 1:6-7. The uncertainty of the Day of Judgment is continually urged by Christ as an incentive to vigilance. The day of the Lord will come “as a thief” (Matthew 24:42-43), like lightning suddenly appearing (Matthew 24:27), like a snare (Luke 21:34), as the Deluge (Matthew 24:37).

Place of the Judgmentvalley Jehoshaphat

All the texts in which mention is made of the Second Coming imply clearly that the general judgment will take place on the earth. “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them” Joel 3:1, 2. According to Jewish tradition, the Valley of Jehoshaphat is that part of the Kidron Valley lying between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives. The name Jehoshaphat means “Jehovah is Judge.”

The coming of the Judge

At the Second Coming Christ will appear in the heavens, seated on a cloud and surrounded by the angelic hosts (Matthew 16:27; 24:30; 25:31). The angels will minister to the Judge by bringing all before Him (Matthew 24:31). The elect will aid Christ in a judicial capacity  (1 Corinthians 6:2). The lives of the just will in themselves be a condemnation of the wicked (Matthew 21:41), whose punishment they will publicly approve.

Those to be judged

All men, both good and bad, will appear in the judgment to give an account of their deeds. The sentence pronounced will have a corresponding effect on the angels because they have exercised a certain influence over the fortunes of men.

Object of the judgment

The judgment will embrace all works, good or bad, forgiven as well as unforgiven sins, every idle word (Matthew 12:36), every secret thought: “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God”.                                               1 Corinthians 4:5

Form of the judgmentlast judgment

In the last judgment the conduct and deserts of each individual will be made plain not only to his own conscience but to the knowledge of the assembled world. No words will be spoken in the judgment, but that in one instant, through a Divine illumination, each creature will thoroughly understand his own moral condition and that of every fellow creature.                                                                      Romans 2:15

Results of the general judgment

With the fulfillment of the sentence pronounced in the last judgment, the human race will attain its final destiny: “When the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.                                                                                          1 Peter 5:4 

saved rejoice

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.”                     Philippians 3:20

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today in China.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the Chinese family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

WHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE? 2

authentic lifeWHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE?

An authentic life starts with a prayer: “I offer you this half hour of my swim for … who is struggling… or any other cause.” So that you “pray continuously” 1 Thessalonians 5:17  So while you are cleaning windows, you simply offer this hour of cleaning for thanksgiving for your family. You offer the actions of your life to God as a prayer. This is the secret on how the busy modern person can find intimacy with God. The interior effect of the work we do becomes more important than the exterior fruits of our work.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Henry Thoreau in Walden Pond. We all know how people’s lives have become faster and busier every day. It seems as though many people are living merely to survive. The treatment for depression today is ten times greater than previous times.

We lose the reason why we are here: what is the meaning and purpose of our life? If we become distracted from our purpose long enough, we become miserable. Our modern life has become a distraction from our real Christian goal in life.  We either don’t know what this goal is or we cast it aside. Even worst — this goal seems to  make people uncomfortable so the goal is watered down. Ironically, if you take away the goal of the Christian life, you don’t make it easier to live — you make it harder.

You are much happier when you have a higher standard to look to and strive for. Having a meaningful goal flood your spirit with hope and fills your mind with determination.

In truth, holiness is something that God does in us and not something we achieve. God is still the perfect Gentleman.  He invites us to participate in His life, but He never forces Himself on us. He wants our consent because he desires our loving cooperation.

Those who respond to God’s call to holiness are the most joyful people on earth. They have richer, more abundant experience of life and they love more deeply than most people. They enjoy life — all of life.

How do you know that you are close to holiness? You have an insatiable desire to become all God created you to be: and unwavering commitment to the will of God and an unquenchable concern for unholy people. You are continually answering God’s invitation to grasp the moments of your life — perhaps being sensitive to a divine appointment that God has aligned for you. You tap into the grace of God, which is never lacking. In this way you are giving glory to God.AUTHENTIC LIFE

The Idolatry of Wealth and Reevaluation of Treasure

Our holiness is compatible with every state in life. Even the rich are called to live holy lives by using their wealth in productive ways that foster their own growth and the growth of others.

Idolatry? Who can tell me what that word means?” A nine-year-old’s hand shot into the air. “It’s like what some people do with money—they make it more important than God.” The wisdom of these simple words reverberated through the Sunday school classroom.

Christians are called to reject the idolization of wealth in the modern consumerist society. Instead, they are invited to make productive use of material wealth for the ministries of God.

 So long as individuals maintain a greater attachment to worldly possessions than to God, they will find it harder to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of the needle.

WEALTH IS NOT GREED!
