  1. Hello again Jo,

    I hope you are doing well. It's nice that you give us bible quotes from time to time. Some of them are memorable and have educational value as well, but most importantly they provide food for thought for inquiring minds.

    Now on this one, I did look it up and read the epistle. St Paul is messaging Christians in the Greek city of Philippians and reminds them what he has already told them about devotion to God and not to earthly pleasures. He also reminds them that God does not value earthly sacrifices (circumcision, which is funny enough as pretty much all males are circumcised nowadays) but their faith in Jesus.

    Have a nice day,
    m k

  2. There Is something that I carry which enables me to cross different countries. It Is dark blue, and on the front bares the crest of an eagle. Right below that In Italic reads The United States Of America. Each, and every one of us has a passport, and we cannot cross countries, borders without them. It symbolizes our Identity, and the seal resembles our allegiance. If you are a Christian, then you would know your real Identity. Your real passport Is blood red, and the only way you would know this Is because your debt has been paid, and this was paid by Jesus. Our crest on our true passports signifies the Holy Spirit, and right below It reads In bold letters, HEAVEN. To get to Heaven, you need to seek Jesus, and once you have arrived, your claim for citizenship will be there. There will be no red tape, no waiting around for a yes, or no, no paperwork to fill In, no documents to read over, and you don't even need a visa. Everyone Is welcome. Every living soul upon this earth are, Sojourners, Aliens, and Expatriates, living In a natural world, and not the real world where are Citizenship lays.

    This Is a temporary dwelling, and If you cast your mind back a little, Jo you will understand this: The waiting place, for people just waiting. Everyone Is waiting.

    John 17:16-18 KJV

    (PS) In our real world there Is one Faith, one Voice, one Language, one Teacher, one Father, and United as one.
