I'm down for it

I am a lover of truth and what is right. Though at times I have fallen short of my aspirations and lost my way on the path towards freedom, I am not alone. I seek shelter knowing that there are others who share my experiences and understand that we all bleed the same, smile the same, weep the same and laugh the same.

We all need to lean on one another in times like these. Without reaching out to connect to our fellow brothers and sisters, we are alone and our own personal and universal power ceases to exist. Positive energy breeds the same and freedom flourishes, negative energy breeds fire and destroys. The more of us that come together in the truth, the less evil has a way with us.




BY Khalil Gibran

And an orator said, "Speak to us of Freedom."

And he answered:

At the city gate and by your fireside I have seen you prostrate yourself and worship your own freedom,

Even as slaves humble themselves before a tyrant and praise him though he slays them.

Ay, in the grove of the temple and in the shadow of the citadel I have seen the freest among you wear their freedom as a yoke and a handcuff.

And my heart bled within me; for you can only be free when even the desire of seeking freedom becomes a harness to you, and when you cease to speak of freedom as a goal and a fulfillment.

You shall be free indeed when your days are not without a care nor your nights without a want and a grief,

But rather when these things girdle your life and yet you rise above them naked and unbound.

And how shall you rise beyond your days and nights unless you break the chains which you at the dawn of your understanding have fastened around your noon hour?

In truth that which you call freedom is the strongest of these chains, though its links glitter in the sun and dazzle the eyes.

And what is it but fragments of your own self you would discard that you may become free?

If it is an unjust law you would abolish, that law was written with your own hand upon your own forehead.

You cannot erase it by burning your law books nor by washing the foreheads of your judges, though you pour the sea upon them.

And if it is a despot you would dethrone, see first that his throne erected within you is destroyed.

For how can a tyrant rule the free and the proud, but for a tyranny in their own freedom and a shame in their won pride?

And if it is a care you would cast off, that care has been chosen by you rather than imposed upon you.

And if it is a fear you would dispel, the seat of that fear is in your heart and not in the hand of the feared.

Verily all things move within your being in constant half embrace, the desired and the dreaded, the repugnant and the cherished, the pursued and that which you would escape.

These things move within you as lights and shadows in pairs that cling.

And when the shadow fades and is no more, the light that lingers becomes a shadow to another light.

And thus your freedom when it loses its fetters becomes itself the fetter of a greater freedom.

Greetings Tara,

Nice to hear from you greetings

Hi Tara,

Thank you for the kind welcome. I must admit that your site caught my eye because there are so few that take a stand for Biblical doctrine that is correctly understood and taught.

But I also must tell you that I have not yet had the opportunity to "dig in" and to thoroughly examine what you believe, teach and support. I am a long-time reformed believer with favorite Pastors including Charles Spurgeon, John MacArthur and R C Sproul.

It is my hope that I find your site compatible with the teachings of those fine men. I'm sure you know how difficult it has become to find anyone who un-apologetically believes God's word and realizes we are either slaves to sin or slaves to Christ Jesus.

I am not impressed nor will I tolerate easy-believeism and I am equally opposed to those who take a position of piousness to the extreme without making room for the love and forgiveness manifested in the Gospel. I guess you can say I have a Calvinistic view but not the "New Calvinism" which tends to be a bit extreme.

If you think I will find this site to be inline with what I just said or even if you don't, it would save me an extraordinary amount of time and effort if you would be kind enough to tell me. And by that I mean to tell me either way.

I'm sorry if you think this an unusual request but at almost 70 years of age I have learned that time is indeed precious. My time is almost totally committed to finding those in need of hearing the Gospel. I am constantly in search for resources (and I hope your site is one of them) that will provide a source of inspiration,  communication and edification for those whom I approach in His service.

I would appreciate hearing back fro you.

In His Name

Thanks for the welcome but I just changed carriers and updated my profile to match. I've been here for a while.

Thanks. From the guidelines, I gather we aren't supposed to post links to other servers? I assume this means stories have to be posted in their entirety.
