Kindred,


Your loyalty must be to the Lord first, humanity second.  


The end goal is salvation.  


The lack of independent and unbiased thought and failures in tests of character only make the path to salvation more difficult to attain.  


Do not get hung up in the trappings of material wealth or power, because those things you cannot bring with you when you die.  


What you present to the Lord cannot be of anything mundane.  


And any meager power of man, however superhuman, cannot even compare to having the faith of a mustard seed, let alone the power of nature and the Lord. 


Being powerful does not generate wisdom or intelligence.


Power does not create innovations, nor is it the path to salvation.  


And powerful aggression is complete opposite of "the meek shall inherit the earth"*. 


Do not sell out your soul for something so very temporal and transient.


Know that we all will have to answer to the Lord eventually and live with the Lord's Judgement for all eternity. 



*Matthew 5:5, Psalm 37:11




  “Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”        ...
