Knowledge

20th Aug 2010, mgh.

The vital difference between a poor nation and prosperous one is the education and applied objective knowledge of all its citizens. A nation who teaches lies will fail, as contradiction beeds confusion and confusion prevents learning.

19th Jun 2010, hej.

Much is said about God's love for us. It turns out this may be over estimated. Indeed there is a general love in the provision of salavation, but a specific love is dependent on us!

Lion & the False Prophet
