Text Box:     OF MAN WITH GOD   July 2007 A.D.
REUNIONText Box: everything is possessed of the Holy Spirit. As an example, Hell is a real place, occupied at present - as far as we know - exclusively by spirits, but sometime in the future to be occupied also by complete humans. Since Hell exists, God is there, the Holy Spirit is there, but God the Holy Spirit is not in Hell. It is quite simple if one thinks about it; or if one does not think about it, it is still quite simple. But this is incomplete, for in the sense of the Church the word Catholic also means exclusive, the only, just as God is exclusive, the only God.

There is but ONE of these things and it is not just a but is also the CHURCH; and it is HOLY because it is within or one with God which is why there is but Text Box: COMPREHENDING THE BEGINNING OF HUMAN LIFE BY CONSIDERING AND COMPREHENDING THE ENDING OF HUMAN LIFE

If you are having difficulty comprehending why a human is a human from the instant of conception you must look to the soul.

Every living thing has a soul. It is the soul that makes a thing live. When the soul leaves grass, a tree, a frog, a cow, a human, that thing dies. It may be that even angels have souls but being spirits their soul and spirit never separate.

The East thinks of humans as being physical body, spirit, and soul. In the West the thinking has combined the spirit and the soul, sometimes naming the combination the spirit and sometimes naming the combination the soul.

Text Box: ~ CATHOLIC ~
From Metropolitan Archbishop Paul, S.S.B.
To the flock entrusted into my care:

One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Catholic means universal, the church universal, the undivided Christian church, the church which has historical continuity. More recently there has been an apparent attempt by the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church to claim exclusive rights to the term Catholic. Guess they forgot about the Holy Orthodox Catholic and Apostolic Church. And perhaps both have forgotten about the Coptic Church, the Text Box:  The Society of Clerks Secular of Saint Basil

Text Box: Armenian Church, and other portions of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

How can any part of The Church claim exclusive rights to that which it does not properly comprehend?

The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church is Catholic in that the Holy Spirit is Catholic. The Holy Spirit is Universal, the Holy Spirit is everywhere and so too is the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. But the Holy Spirit’s being everywhere as God is everywhere does not mean Text Box: WHEN PEOPLE VOTE FOR SOMEONE JUST BECAUSE THE CANDIDATE IS “ONE OF THEM” They often get what they deserve

When your - yes your - support for a candidate is founded even in part in your sharing or having the same or similar ethnic backgrounds, or any other factor which is not a matter of character, abilities, and the intent to promote Godly good for the people, then you will find yourself visited with the evil of the candidate should the candidate be elected.

When a person can and does engage in any activity which comes to their mind or their desire, is that person acting in freedom or in enslavement?

We have numerous examples of people engaging in every type of pleasure possible. From the wealthy celebrity to the most financially destitute known only to those near whom they live, every delight of the senses is available. But not just delights of the senses are available. Delights of the mind, promises of science and technology are believed and accepted as reality, and the appearance is treated as the reality.

Text Box: COCK FIGHTING

Last year there were two States in which cock fighting was legal. Soon there will be none.

Apparently a hatched chicken is more valued by society than an unborn (“unhatched”) human, for torturing and killing unborn humans is still legal in all States.
