Stand Up. Take Up Your Bed. Walk.

There was this guy who Jesus "assisted" (somewhat) to stand up; take up his bed and walk.

The Midwayers who narrated the story commented that in this particular case, it was not a miracle as such. ...that all the man needed to have done was just that - stand up; take up his bed and walk. He had it within himself to do so. But he languished in confusion, ignorance, setbacks, "downcast", and stuff. There are many people like that today.

147:3.5 One man who had been many years downcast and grievously afflicted by the infirmities of his troubled mind, rejoiced at Jesus’ words and, picking up his bed, went forth to his home, even though it was the Sabbath day. This afflicted man had waited all these years for somebody to help him; he was such a victim of the feeling of his own helplessness that he had never once entertained the idea of helping himself which proved to be the one thing he had to do in order to effect recovery — take up his bed and walk.

CMC Urantia Book College Conference - FUNAB, Abeokuta

CMC Urantia Book College Conference
2nd Conference, 2nd College
Venue: The Animal Nutrition Department
Federal University of Agriculture
Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria 
Dateline: November 10, 2016
Conference Topic: What is the Spirit of Truth?
15 students attended the conference and 10 books were given out to students who wrote down their contact information: name, email and telephone number. 2 copies were donated to the University Library - The Nimbe Adedipe Library. A total of 12 books were given out - free. The students agreed to meet fortnightly (once in two weeks). May God bless our efforts. Amen. Please, keep us in your prayers. Hallelujah and Namaste! (Pictures and a Letter are attached.) 

Spirit of Truth is the spirit of Jesus Christ! 

“The coming of the Spirit of Truth purifies the human heart and leads the recipient to formulate a life purpose single to the will of God and the welfare of men. The material spirit of selfishness has been swallowed up in this new spiritual bestowal of selflessness. Pentecost, then and now, signifies that the Jesus of history has become the divine Son of living experience. The joy of this outpoured spirit, when it is consciously experienced in human life, is a tonic for health, a stimulus for mind, and an unfailing energy for the soul.” - The Urantia Book 194:3:19
“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” - John 16:13
“John asked Jesus, “Master, what is the kingdom of heaven?” And Jesus answered: “The kingdom of heaven consists in these three essentials: first, recognition of the fact of the sovereignty of God; second, belief in the truth of sonship with God; and third, faith in the effectiveness of the supreme human desire to do the will of God — to be like God. And this is the good news of the gospel: that by faith every mortal may have all these essentials of salvation.”” - The Urantia Book 140:10.9

The Gospel of the Kingdom - Nuggets

The gospel of the Kingdom is simple:

The Kingdom of God is within you! And you are saved by grace through faith - faith that God is your Father and you are His son/daughter and that your eternity is secured. And faith that causes you to surrender your all to Him and causes you to show LOVE. That's what Jesus taught - in essence.

(Within you - for the spirit of the Father is already in you. This spirit comes at the age of accountability, usually between 4 and 6 years of age.)

Salvation comes to you when you surrender your heart completely to God as a result of a personal experience of the quickening impact of the love of God. This can happen through many different ways.

The quickening, spiritual life-giving love of God can be embraced by a mortal at the foot of the cross. It can also be embraced through many other ways. Jesus never ever limited it to the cross. This explains why He forgave sins and got people born again (born of water and of the spirit) and added them to the Father's Kingdom before he was crucified.

I am sharing some deep stuffs here. Without the Spirit of Truth, you may not appreciate what I am saying. To understand salvation clearly, you have to focus more on the teachings of Jesus Himself - not the teachings of your Imam, Priest, Pastor or St. Peter or St. Paul.

This message of salvation is applicable to all, regardless of their religious background and their planet of origin.

A major mistake a lot of people make is this: they define salvation based on their own individual experience. Life is so, so big and vast. The truth far transcends the very limited and greatly circumscribed experiences of one, two or a few individuals.

Jesus never narrowed down salvation. He taught a gospel of salvation that is readily available and applicable to Jews, Christians, Muslims, etc and also to humans on other planets.

A major problem with the prominent religions or faiths on our planet is this: they succumb to the temptation of narrowing down salvation to members of their faith or religion. In some cases it's so bad that salvation is greatly narrowed down to accommodate only members of a particular church or temple - a subset of a faith.

For example, Christianity. Some christian sects or churches have further narrowed salvation down to such a level that except you become a member of their church and accept the doctrines of their church, you shall never be saved. It's that pathetic...

No human being; no church; no faith or religion; no experience of a single individual or group has a monopoly on God. None.

Net Worth

What is your, "Net Worth"?
Your net worth IS NOT the size of your bank account. Your net worth can be seen in the VALUE YOU ADD to the lives of people. How many lives do you impact positively and powerfully - for good in an hour; in a day; in your life time? That, my friend, is your true "net worth". Money is important. Get it, you may. But remember, money is not everything.
Our true net worth is not how much money we earn per hour... Please, ask yourself, "What do I need to do to create a great and lovely impact in the lives of people per hour? What do I need to do to add value to others? And what do I need to do to increase the number of people?"
Being very popular does not necessarily equate to having a great net worth. Some people are relatively unknown by the general public but their net worth is far above that of some so-called celebrities. In the final analysis, God makes that judgment call as to the quality and quantity of your net worth for He sees all and knows all.

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."

God never asks us to do anything that He has not already done. We can't out-give God. He is the most generous giver. One of the best-known Scripture from the Gospels, John 3:16 says that, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” Urantia Book Paper 100:7.10 The Master was always generous. He never grew weary of saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." We see in Scripture that the blessings God has blessed us with are not just for our own gain. We are to share with others who are in need. It was for this reason that God also commanded the people not to harvest the entire field but to leave the corners of their fields for the poor. “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 23:22) May you be filled to overflowing with the Spirit of the Living God. May each of us be transformed by His power, love, mercy and forgiveness, and extend the grace we have experienced to those around us. Amen Abegunde Julius Taiwo.

But There Is A Spirit In Man

Job 32:8, "But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty gives them understanding." 

This "spirit", this "indwelling spirit of God the Father" is the Thought Adjuster (TA) - God in man: spirit of God, candle light, Inner Voice, Still Small Voice...

Some religions understand this. Some do not. For example, Christianity. Christianity has a problem with this interpretation because it [this correct interpretation, that is] reveals loopholes in its doctrine of Salvation. Many Christian outlets teach God cannot be in an individual except he or she is washed by the blood of Jesus. As a result, they interpret Job 32:8 to mean that particular spirit is man's 'human spirit' which needs to be saved or recreated. However, Salvation is by the divine grace through faith and faith alone - faith that God exists - "God is" and He is "your Father". Such a faith that would empower you to surrender your all, wholeheartedly to His will and His way. No works is needed. No work of animal blood sacrifice. No work of shedding the blood of your own son. And also, no work of Jesus blood sacrifice. (Nevertheless, we understand that the Jesus experience on the cross has the power to lead people to salvation because of the great spiritual drawing power of his LOVE that was displayed at the cross...) Wrapped up in the love of God, you are saved by grace through faith. Not of works... 

This spirit is God's divine spirit, the spirit fragment of God the Father. It is by this technique that our all-powerful, infinitely transcendent God can come close to you, to indwell in. This is how transcendence becomes immanence. This spirit is God in man. It is not your 'human spirit' or your lost, faulty, sin-prone human spirit. 


This spirit, the Thought Adjuster [TA] comes into every human being when he or she makes his or her first moral decision - at the age of accountability, usually between 4 and 6 years of age. The TA resides at the SUPERCONSCIOUS levels of your mind. As a result, even if you are sinful, the TA can still remain in you. Sin cannot ordinarily or easily get to your superconsciousness. It is the "Holy of Holies" in you. That's where God resides. And that's why Jesus declared, "The Kingdom of God is within you!"

Proverbs 20:27, "The spirit of man is the candle of God, searching all the inward parts of the belly." ...and the "candle of God" does not need to be recreated or born again. It is not corrupt. Cannot be corrupted. It is your soul that needs salvation - to be "born again". It is your "spiritual life" that may need to be "born anew". It is very important to understand these distinctions. 

Please Note Briefly:
One sure thing that can defy the Holy of Holies in a human being is persistent, continuous willful iniquity (a far greater and higher level of "sin"); a total, complete, wholehearted dedication to Lucifer. When a human being consciously, willfully, and wholeheartedly sells himself to Lucifer, his TA would leave. This constitutes SOUL DEATH (or spiritual death) as explained in Paper 112:3.2 of the Urantia Book. The good news is that this does not happen frequently to people on Earth. Most people would not consciously and willfully sell themselves to the devil.

Urantia Book Paper 112:3.2, "Spiritual (soul) death. If and when mortal man has finally rejected survival, when he has been pronounced spiritually insolvent, morontially bankrupt, in the conjoint opinion of the Adjuster and the surviving seraphim, when such co-ordinate advice has been recorded on Uversa, and after the Censors and their reflective associates have verified these findings, thereupon do the rulers of Orvonton order the immediate release of the indwelling Monitor. But this release of the Adjuster in no way affects the duties of the personal or group seraphim concerned with that Adjuster-abandoned individual. This kind of death is final in its significance irrespective of the temporary continuation of the living energies of the physical and mind mechanisms. From the cosmic standpoint the mortal is already dead; the continuing life merely indicates the persistence of the material momentum of cosmic energies." 

Please, note that the word "survival" as used here connotes "salvation". Hallelujah! Hosanna! Namaste!

Overcoming Sexual Lust

Sexual lust can be seen as: desiring or yearning to use another person as a 'thing' for selfish sexual aggrandizement; to use and abuse. True love is absent there. 

In the spirit realms, or in your spiritual life, you may run into serious problems if you allow your heart to desire to kiss, caress, penetrate another individual and to do so without allowing the energies or vibrations of love to flow... This is why some people cheat, tell lies, use and dump others... 

If you can cultivate your heart and mind to allow yourself to "do unto others what you wish to be done to you" - under the banner of true love, then you'll soar above lust. How can one achieve this: prayer, meditation and drawing power from God-within. Also common sense practices are important too... 

Some people hate to have thoughts of sex in their minds. They believe it constitutes evil and can lead to sin or iniquity. But Jesus said it's not what goes into you that defiles you. It's what comes out of you. The act of "seeing" or "looking" in and of itself is not wrong. The question is: what is coming out of you? So if thoughts of sexual desires come to your mind, you should learn to allow GOOD STUFFS to come out of the experience. So please ask yourself: how can truth, beauty and goodness COME OUT OF me through this experience? Ask. And your God would assist you. "Ask and you shall receive." We have to learn to talk to God about sex. Very important. Tell Him how you feel. Tell him what you think. No condemnation. Be free. Don't be afraid. "Fear not!" Express yourself sincerely. And you'll gain strength! 

Stop fighting it or struggling and allowing guilt to spoil your day. "It's not by your might or power but by the spirit of God." So relax. Take a deep breath, be comfortable in your skin and with God, co-create a reality that constitutes truth, beauty and goodness. Keep working on it. You'll get better with time. 😇🌈

To love AS Jesus loved

#Love
Jesus seeks to take us deeper for he said: LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I LOVE YOU. 
THAT'S DEEP! 

We are not expected to just love others as we love ourselves. We are encouraged to climb higher - inwards: TO LOVE AS GOD LOVES. 
We are to go far beyond the beautiful human capacity to LOVE. We are to ascend higher into the greater divine capacity to LOVE. 
Stop and meditate on this for a minute...

John 13:34-35 Darby Translation (DARBY)
34 A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all know that ye are disciples of mine, if ye have love amongst yourselves. 

Urantia Book 180:1 - THE NEW COMMANDMENT. 
JESUS to his disciples, "...You well know the commandment which directs that you love one another; that you love your neighbor even as yourself. But I am not wholly satisfied with even that sincere devotion on the part of my children. I would have you perform still greater acts of love in the kingdom of the believing brotherhood. And so I give you this new commandment: That you love one another even as I have loved you. And by this will all men know that you are my disciples if you thus love one another." - UB180:1.1

A Divine Counselor and Angels

I am determined to see and experience a Divine Counselor in me!

I am determined to see.
Recognizing the shared nature of my thoughts, I am determined to see. I would look upon the witnesses that show me the thinking of the world has been changed. I would behold the proof that what has been done through me has enabled love to replace fear; laughter to replace weeping; and abundance to replace loss. I would look upon the real world, and let it teach me that my will and the Will of God are one.
~ Original Handscript of ACIM  

A Divine Counselor summarizes it as follows: "Health, sanity, and happiness are integrations of truth, beauty and goodness as they are blended in human experience. Such levels of efficient living come about through the unification of energy systems, idea systems, and spirit systems." [Urantia book 2:7.11]

"Happiness ensues from the recognition of truth because it can be acted out..." [Urantia Book 2:7.6]
May we be empowered as Children of Light, exercising our birthright as Creator-Beings and Beings of Light.


= = =


The Purpose of Ministering Spirits/Angels.

The primary purpose for which they were created by God was to be servants (i.e., “ministers”) to those who are to inherit salvation.

They are beings of great wisdom, “to know all things that are in the earth” (2 Samuel 14:20).

“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).

Urantia Book 38:0.1, "Angels are the ministering spirits of time; authorities, the messenger hosts of space; powers, the higher personalities of the Infinite Spirit."

May The Infinite Intelligence guide us in all ways and may God's riches in wisdom flow to us all freely.

Amen,
Abegunde Julius Taiwo

A Life Above Lust

Two key spiritual principles to walk in - so you can live a life far above 'the lust of the flesh' or any form of sexual immorality: 
(1) "I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman." - Job 31:1.
(2) "When I washed my steps with butter, and the rock poured me out rivers of oil;" - Job 29:6
[Job is a Book in the Bible - for those who may not know.]
We can confidently tell you that the [spiritual] WORD of God works. It is POSSIBLE to experience spiritual growth and changes in your mind and biological, electrochemical make up - to such an extent that it becomes IMPOSSIBLE for you to have lustful desires towards anyone or anything. With God all things are possible. Some of us are living proof testimonials. 

A clear understanding of the two verses above can get you to tap into some powerful spiritual principles and anointing that would "quicken" you and bring you to a beautiful place where you easily overcome any form of sexual temptation. Stay blessed and have a great week! ‪#‎OneLove‬
Cheers!

The spiritual technique of SALVATION

Here's a gospel of salvation that would apply to anyone in any inhabited planet. There are many, many, many planets with humans in them. Earth is not the only one. This is where my about 35 years of spiritual journey has brought me to:  

"The spiritual technique of SALVATION occurs when an individual accepts and is "quickened" by the expression of God's LOVE and MERCY. Salvation is yours when you get a revelation of God's love and mercy: a revelation or understanding-experience that causes you to open your heart to God, to trust Him, to welcome Him into your life; to surrender all to Him as your Father. These acts bring you to a place where you begin to see others as your brothers and sisters and you develop FAITH in your eternal salvation - that you will exist in and with God forever. Your heart becomes totally committed to doing His will. This is possible because of the GRACE and GOODNESS of God. Herein is your salvation."  

Always be of good cheer! ‪#‎faith‬ ‪#‎hope‬ ‪#‎love‬

Having Divine Thoughts

There's nothing wrong in having divine thoughts. And the righteousness we have is God's righteousness - this is what God consciousness is all about. Your intimate relationship with your Thought Adjuster [TA - God within] leads you "Godward". It is a relationship that transforms your mind and makes you increasingly "godlike". 

A wholehearted devotion to the Adjuster's plan (God's plan) "spiritizes" you. You grow in grace and are made to be "increasingly" spiritually minded. The God-man (or God-woman) relationship makes you increasingly divine. This is your heritage. You receive more and more divine endowments and divine ennoblement, for your are "blessed with all spiritual blessings in the Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus". True spiritual growth means tapping more and more into the wisdom, knowledge and understanding of Jesus Christ [Christ Michael]. 

As you partner with your Maker, you "are becoming God" and God (your Thought Adjuster, the Still Small Voice, the Inner Voice) is becoming you. You experience divinity in #God. Your God experiences humanity in you. 

Any SINCERE faith-liberated truth seeker on Earth knows that there's the human "thought" and there's the divine "thought" in his/her mind or life. He or she learns to differentiate between the two. Let us commit to being under the ministries of the TA, SOT and HS (Thought Adjuster, Spirit of Truth and Holy Spirit). Cheers!

Status of Lucifer and other Rebels

The Status of the rebels of the Lucifer Rebellion, as at WHEN the Urantia Book went to the press.

[NB: About 60 years later, the question is, "What is their present status"? Hahaha... :). Would you wait for a 2nd Edition of the UB to provide you that vital information or are you willing to ask your Thought Adjuster, right here and now?]

LUCIFER: Jerusem Prison Worlds, JPW. Paper 45:1.11, "...the Satania prison worlds surrounding this planet, whereon are now confined Lucifer and the majority of those personalities who followed him in rebellion against Michael..."

SATAN: Jerusem Prison Worlds, JPW. Paper 53:9.4, "...Satan is now unqualifiedly detained on the Jerusem prison worlds."

CALIGASTIA: Still free on Urantia. I jokingly [but sadly] call it, 'Free roaming'. Paper 53:8.6, "...Caligastia, your apostate Planetary Prince, is still free on Urantia to prosecute his nefarious designs, but he has absolutely no power to enter the minds of men, neither can he draw near to their souls to tempt or corrupt them unless they really desire to be cursed with his wicked presence."

DALIGASTIA: I do not know. Please, do you? I cannot recall anywhere in the UB where his name was specifically mentioned, with regards to his status. I conjecture he may have been left to roam freely on Earth {Urantia} with his immediate supervisor, Caligastia. Or peharps, he was tossed into JPW.

REBEL SERAPHIM & CHERUBIM {Evil Angels}: Jerusem Prison Worlds, JPW. Paper 45:1.10, "...the few seraphim and cherubim who went over to the rebels in the Satania rebellion have been long since confined on these isolation worlds of Jerusem."

REBEL MIDWAYERS (PRIMARY & SECONDARY) {Evil spirits and demons}: Jerusem Prison Worlds, JPW. Paper 77:7.8, "The entire group of rebel midwayers is at present held prisoner by order of the Most Highs of Edentia. No more do they roam this world on mischief bent..."

= = =

As a scientist, I love acronyms. So, here are some acronyms. ;)
- Jerusem Prison Worlds, JPW; Paper 53:9.4
- Isolation Worlds of Jerusem, IWJ; Paper 45:1.10
- Jerusem Rebel Detention Spheres, JRDS; coined from Paper 53:7.1

'Borderland' - The Final Phases of the Soul's Struggle for Complete Spiritual Dominance! [2nd Edition]


Imagine you are in country A. You are on your way to country B. In your heart, you are already in the new and better and greater country - country B. But you still have some of the ways and culture of country A. Nevertheless, you are now advancing, taking in more and more of country B's mindset, culture, beliefs, etc. It is not a very easy journey. It is not a piece of cake. There are struggles. But you are being nudged and led and assisted by an unseen hand, taking you closer and closer to the better country, better place. There is effort, struggle, conflict, faith, determination, love, loyalty, and progress.


Now imagine you have reached the borders (borderland). You are on the verge of a great achievement. You are about to succeed in totally and completely giving up the mindset, ways, culture, beliefs, etc of country A and wholeheartedly and completely embracing those of country B. You are at a crossroad. If you succeed in getting into country B, you would never ever be able to go back to country A. Backsliding or changing your mind becomes impossible - practically impossible. You continue to make major decisions, big decisions in this respect. You are at the brink of total self destruction and complete soul reconstruction. More powers and maturity come to you to enable you align your heart and mind completely to practically doing the will of God - to FULLY and EASILY implementing the culture of country B, without any more struggles. THE DAYS OF STRUGGLING ARE ABOUT TO BE OVER - completely over.


Ascended Master Serapis.jpg


If you really succeed here, if you cross the borderland, you become like a superhuman - it is like attaining the first circle of cosmic consciousness. It's like being fully qualified for Thought Adjuster fusion (a.k.a. 'rapture' or Elijah translation/Enoch translation). Of course, fusion can be delayed to allow you continue your life and work here on Earth.


You become completely like Jesus - no negative ego whatsoever. You are dead to sin, self, pride, etc. You are now a manifestation of Jesus in all totality. You have crossed the BORDERLAND. Hallelujah! Glory to God! Amen.


---


Transitioning or maturing out of the "borderland" is quite an uphill task! Some people have experienced emotional upheavals... Victory lies in boldly holding onto God's hands in FAITH; spending time in prayers and meditation; allowing for great changes to occur on your inside; responding willfully to the divine outworking on your inside - reflecting on your challenges and co-creating/seeing the victory or God's desired outcome through faith, prayers, meditation.... Declare, speak forth and see the new "you", the more matured place, etc you desire to be...


Some people reject deep or higher level spirituality because they don't want to summon the courage, guts and faith to deal with the borderland. Going through the borderland is just inevitable. Enjoy the ride! Your TA (Thought Adjuster, God within, the Inner Voice) would guide you. May the 'force' be with you! Hahaha...


Another way I look at borderland is this: the final struggle between the flesh and the spirit - the arena, close to spiritland, where the two natures of man square it all out - the final struggle, the last fight, to tip man over completely to the spirit realm - higher spiritual maturity and freedom - 'spiritland', where you are completely aligned with the WILL and WAY of God.
#borderland #borderlandstruggle #spiritualborderland #soulsfinalstruggle #ascension


= = =


'Borderland' is completely eradicated when you attain your own individual era of Light and Life. Jesus attained this while on Earth, in the flesh. He was indeed the greatest mortal (as 'son of man') ever to have lived! His was an outstandingly remarkable feat!! Hahaha....


In this present planetary dispensation, for a vast, vast majority of us, this very same feat would be accomplished in the heavenly realms (in the Mansion Worlds) - after the animal nature (or mark of the beast) is fully and completely metamorphosed into true spirit nature or even partial spirit nature (i.e. higher levels of the morontial nature) - I believe…

The Mansion Worlds (a.k.a. "many Mansions" that Jesus talked about when he was here) are Heavenly Places (Planets) of unfathomable joy, love, peace, etc and also of learning, growth, major decisions, big, big decisions - "decision-choices".... Realms of testings or challenges to fully and wholeheartedly choose the Father's plan in ways that allow for higher soul growth, 'earthshaking' soul transformation, soul ascension, unlimited purging of every and all things carnal, animalistic, bestial...


One thing is certain, the closer we get to God, the easier it all becomes. The Urantia Book [UB] puts it nicely: Everyday a righteous man lives, it becomes easier to do the right thing or to do good (or to obey the divine will) {paraphrase}.


Notable quotes on Borderland:

UB196:3.34, “The great challenge to modern man is to achieve better communication with the divine Monitor that dwells within the human mind. Man’s greatest adventure in the flesh consists in the well-balanced and sane effort to advance the borders of self-consciousness out through the dim realms of embryonic soul-consciousness in a wholehearted effort to reach the borderland of spirit-consciousness — contact with the divine presence. Such an experience constitutes God-consciousness, an experience mightily confirmative of the pre-existent truth of the religious experience of knowing God. Such spirit-consciousness is the equivalent of the knowledge of the actuality of sonship with God. Otherwise, the assurance of sonship is the experience of faith.”


UB196:3.34 presents three (3) major phases of the borderland experience:
1.) The borders of self-consciousness.
2.) The dim realms of embryonic soul-consciousness.
3.) The borderland of spirit-consciousness - CONTACT WITH THE DIVINE PRESENCE. 
From this point moving forward, CONSTANT, UNINTERRUPTED CONTACT with the divine presence, the God-within, the Still Small Voice, your Thought Adjuster is possible! :)
AWESOME! Glory! Hallelujah!


Please, hear Jesus speak:
UB159:3.7, “Forewarn all believers regarding the fringe of conflict which must be traversed by all who pass from the life as it is lived in the flesh to the higher life as it is lived in the spirit. To those who live quite wholly within either realm, there is little conflict or confusion, but all are doomed to experience more or less uncertainty during the times of transition between the two levels of living. In entering the kingdom, you cannot escape its responsibilities or avoid its obligations, but remember: The gospel yoke is easy and the burden of truth is light.”

Cheers!
