    You cannot deny it! Jim has sermon videos available. The essence of heaven is our participation in the Beatific Vision. There are two areas of defilement that we might consider. Likely not — but nevertheless, we are called to do so. Buried in this center, these sufferings release light that has no fear of darkness.

    We can, instead, make our goal in life pleasure, or being admired, or making money, or a thousand other things. Wilcock, Michael. And it has not changed in five thousand years. The prophet looked upon one of the sons of Jesse, thinking that he must surely be the chosen king. There is right.

    The mass flatters, the mass excuses, the mass condemns, the mass counts heads, the mass pronounces on truth, and in all these things the mass, for Kierkegaard, is that which is both false and debasing. When the tried oldster drew near to his last hour, having fought the good fight and kept the faith, his heart was still young enough not to have forgotten that fear and trembling which chastened the youth, which the man indeed held in check, but which no man quite outgrows. Discipleship, our discipleship, entails focusing our love on Christ first, and then what comes as a by-product is a love for others. He came into the world because our divided hearts must be wholly integrated. What is all that he knows, vast accumulation though it be, but a chipped fragment if he does not know Thee! In these days, hearts seek after many things.
