What perspective are we to view this event with that seems so senseless and horrific?
I believe we must look at it with reason and logic, and we must also view tragedy with a emotional and spiritual lens.
If we consider what happened in Orlando, Florida only from the perspective in which it is reported we are bypassing critical reasoning, and it is very important to first be critical of the information presented by mainstream media, why?
We must use critical reasoning when viewing media, because there is always an agenda that is usually below the surface pushing us to come to a certain conclusion and support a particular idea. Continue reading
To know yourself is to know the ONE who Created you.
It is said that history is really HIS – tory and if there is any truth to that statement than what story is the Most High telling and why?
Knowledge is to fear God. Understanding is to run from evil. Wisdom is to seek to know and understand the Most High consistently growing closer to Him constantly submitting to His will.
Knowing yourself is to know where you are from and what faith sustained your ancestors. If I am ignorant of my parents than I am missing a piece of myself. If I am ignorant of my ancestors I am in the dark when it comes to what distinguishes me from other people.
IDENTITY is what distinguishes you and what sets you apart. Continue reading
“15and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you,16as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.” – 2 Peter 3:15,16
John is the right-hand man of Peter (Adam Levy) and brother of James (Denver Isaac), and the only apostle to witness the crucifixion. Known as the “beloved disciple,” John is one of the most sensitive and emotionally intelligent apostles.
Apostle Paul’s letters to the heads of churches are the God inspired scriptures that makes up a large part of the New Testament. He is seldom depicted accurately even though the bible is “very specific” about his appearance. He was a pharisee who persecuted – who the Antioch’s called – Christians before he had an experience with Christ.

Identity is your distinguishing characteristic.
Culture and heritage establishes your identity.
Culture is how you glorify your God and heritage is what has been passed down by belief and or bloodline. When you have removed what hinders you from seeing who you are and why you are, you can identify what is true. Your persisting entity is how you are known or what you continue in firmly is what makes you distinct. To stay the course in spite of difficulty or failure is what defines your existence or defines your IDENTITY.
Let go of what this world has presented as identity and accept the characteristics by which you will definitively be known as…accept the truth of who God says that you are.
It is curious that we reject truth.
It is as if there is some psychosis distorting our grasp of reality and self worth.
