MOVING MOUNTAINS INTO THE MIDDLE OF THE SEA! | It was the 'thought' movement which sprang up after the great depression that tried to investigate how people could prosper financially, materially, bodily and mentally. Frankly I think it was a great and fascinating exercise and of course today, accounts for much of what we see today in the approach to the aquisition of wealth. I have no problem with this believe it or not, because as someone has said, money is the only thing that God compares Himself with, therefore money is very powerful. Matthew 6:24 | "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. NKJV

Frankly, I enjoy reading these fella's and Dale Carnegie has some excellent stuff to say. If I can distill all they say into one paragraph it would be this "Acknowledging the seeming mystical connection between belief and the response of 'the universe' to that belief (this will eventually be explained by science) a believing heart, leads to a reprogrammed mind, which leads to clear stating of goals, which leads to both the conscious and sub conscious pursuance of those goals to such an extent that through very hard work and pursuance, they will be achieved. So, chin up, chest out, smile and move into your destiny." I like that. No honestly, I do. There is some factual truth in it...... some....

And this is where it all falls down. You see the Bible reveals that we are in the midst of cosmic conflict. The universe is a war zone. Light and darkness do battle daily with weapons of truth, obedience, love and sacrifice, the word if which fail to convey the power of active wielding. In this then, the Bible reveals that the active Christian is resisted, is thwarted, is blocked, is blasted, is belittled, is killed in even trying to fulfill the call of the Master. This is what the Bible reveals.

Never the less, we can and should live joyfully in the conflict, as we consistently pursue our callings and destinies with all our mind and heart. THIS is the challenge of the Christian warrior, not the avoidance of conflict, but joy in the battle. This is a good way to live. this is God's way to live. In this, we are more than conquerors, through Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us. SO BECAUSE OF CHRIST | BE HAPPY | PURSUE YOUR CALLING | OBEY THE COMMAND | SEE THE VICTORY | REJOICE | DO YOU SEE THE GLASS SHARDS IN THE PORRIDGE?
