Kindred,


If you ever played Pokémon Go you know of strength and weaknesses. 


For example, water Pokémons  are strong against fire, but weak against electric types.  Ice Pokémons are strong against ground, but weak against fire. 


In life, there is no such thing as perfect strength against everything and everyone.  


It depends upon what and who you are up against.  


It is one of the reasons why having a diverse and well rounded talent team is vital to growth and defense.  


It is another reason why you should not try for invincibility, because there is no such thing especially by oneself.  


Therefore, do not sacrifice love and kindness in fear of threats or delusional invincibility and illusional strength;


Because anyone can be abusive and threaten life.  


Ruthlessness and coldness of heart is not strength of character or wisdom, nor does it eliminate all threats, especially threats to character, peace and salvation.


Any practice that prevents the Holy Spirit from connecting to your spirit and humanity causes weaknesses of spirit and character.  


You cannot see the Lord with a cold heart, only with a pure heart.  


You cannot receive the Holy Spirit with a cold heart, only with a warm, kind and empathetic heart.


Why and how do wars, terrorism and unholy acts happen?


The greatest threat is corruption and sins from within.


Therefore, do not give footholds to sin or unholy behaviors.  


Do not excuse sin or use forgiveness* as a means to bypass redemption, because sinners will then be off the narrow path of salvation forever.


If you sin, confess, repent and atone.  


Clean yourselves up so that you will be presentable to the Lord and wrongs in harm will not continuously happen and occur.






*Forgiveness is for the victim to give, not for the sinner to give, because not the injured party; redemption is for the sinner to receive if able to receive after repentance and atonement.




Why have standards fallen so low? Where is the sense of honor and duty? There is no win or salvation in the shame of dishonor and indecency....
