Would you then be willing to take the next step with me and admit that "THAT' which men call 'Christ" exists as a spark and a potential within each of us?

I will admit that perhaps I am jumping too far ahead of you at this point but you can see where I am going. If you wish to leave me now you can, but do not think that I will follow you. I know the way to the garden and I do not intend to tarry for one moment for the sake of mortals who wish only to bar my passage. The path and the guide have no meaning once the destination is in sight. I have come this far. I shall not turn back upon the way I have come.

If you go with the Romans you must always be looking outside and beyond yourself for you will not know "THAT" which is within. Always you will be a slave to the whims of others who will rule over you. That is not what Yeshua had intended for you. The G-D of Isreal does not wish to see man groveling in the dust. HE wants us to stand up and be TRUE MEN. That is why HE gave us HIS LAW so that if we lived by it we would have life more abundantly.

Only the man who rules himself can be truly free. Those who cannot or will not rule themselves are like children and will always be ruled over by those more powerful than they or they will be ruled by circumstance and often mishap. Either way their lives may often be short and miserable. If a master is kind the slave is fortunate but the master is more often cruel and unforgiving and so woe to the slave.
