And above all these put on love,
which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another
in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs
with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
As I read this verse on our Canadian Thanksgiving Day I was once again reminded of what is important: the love of Christ, the peace of Christ and the word of Christ. No one can take these from us. The Bible can be removed, but His word, if it dwells richly within us, if we have studied and applied it, can never be removed from our hearts and minds.
And what is the instruction herein? As the Word dwells within, we will teach and admonish each other that whatever we do, we do in the name of Jesus. The last line of this verse is one I have often quoted and tried to faithfully apply to my life. Whatever I set my hand to do, I do in the name of Jesus, my Lord.
But I want to back up a bit and put this verse in context of the entirety of Colossians 3. Verse two says this,
“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”
Then the apostle Paul continues in verse five with this,
“Put to death, therefore, what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these, the wrath of God is coming. In these you, too, once walked, when you were living in them. But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its Creator.”
WOW. It is only after we have set our minds on things above – righteousness, holiness, honesty, integrity and put to death all evil desire, anger, wrath, malice, slander, obscene talk and lying; putting on our new self, that we finally get to verse 14 – love!
I believe we all have some work to do. It’s called confession of our sin. We all have it residing in us like a leech, seeking to drain us of all that is good and holy. Keep a clean slate with Jesus, so that whatever you do is done in love, peace, thankfulness and in the righteousness of God working through you.
Speaking in Hungary
When you read this newsletter, I will be in Hungary; sharing with other mental health professionals, and speaking on the issues of attachment, trauma and sexuality. The reality folks, is that so many of us have been wounded, and many damaged by deep traumatic events that have succeeded in effecting the very core of our being – our heart, mind and souls.
Out of the damaged heart can flow much confusion, evil desire, animosity, and selfishness. We have a generation who have been, and are being, damaged by abuse, trauma, parental neglect and the lies that surround them. They desperately need to hear truth. As I have said before, it is kind to tell the truth – even when it is rejected or despised. We must never stop. Our world depends on our light shining in the darkness.
I’ve Been Busy!
After returning from a successful trip to Calgary, I was able to join my friend, Jojo Ruba, of Free to Care Ministries, in Mississauga, as he presented on Gender Ideology and loving the lost. At the end of the night, a young black man approached me to discuss something happening in the school where he teaches. Another teacher there, a white male, recently started identifying as black. Yes, you heard that right. An adult white male, in a school a half hour from where I live is declaring he is black and requiring, of course, that everyone acknowledge who he now says he is! And, even more nefarious is the fact that he is a teacher, daily promoting his ‘blackness’ in front of young, impressionable children!
The black man I was talking to asked how he should deal with this situation. The first thing I asked him was how he felt about this white by birth man, saying he is now black? My new friend just looked at the floor. Remember, this is a population who for years had no voice, were discriminated against and often felt like outcasts, now, once again, minimized.
When he didn’t answer, I asked if I could tell him how I might feel – offended. How dare this other man declare himself to be something he is not, and can never become. He is an imposter.
My new friend raised his eyes and smiled broadly. I got it! I got him.
Friends, we cannot cave to the demeaning, demented ideology that is reigning in our society. We MUST be honest and speak the truth. So, that being said, brings me to what happened next. God, lit a fire!
A Book in A Week?
I came home from that meeting and began writing the next day. Now, most of you are aware I just finished Damaged by the Predators Amongst Us book after ten very hard months of writing. This book is in the final stages at the publisher. In this past week, though, I have almost completed this book. Let me share some of the chapter titles with you, because I can assure you, you will want to pick up a copy as soon as it comes out:
Black is White
Every Colour Under the Rainbow+
Hustuss and Furries
Grooming for Pedophiles
The Buck Stops Here
My aim is to have Implosion out before Christmas. This is the same time I expect Damaged to be available.
This leaves me with the writing of The Annihilation of Humanity over the winter.
The Annihilation of Humanity
Artist, Jonathan Taylor has completed the cover for this book, and it is absolutely stunning. At the same time, Annihilation leaves one with a sense of being overwhelmed with the immensity of evil covering our land. This is exactly the perspective that the Lord gave me in the initial vision in 2018.
Writing these books is one thing. The cost of producing, publishing, distributing and travel is another. This is why I am holding a fundraiser on October 28th at 7 p.m.
This event will be in person as well as live on my Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRelLwqLXtu0VF_YPou6l7A). As you can see, the line-up of speakers is outstanding.
I will be reading short passages from Damaged by the Predators Amongst Us. The guest speakers will be sharing their own experiences in relationship to our family and this important book; exposing the darkness of pedophilia.
I hope you will be able to join us. I am so thankful for each one of you and the support you have given in the past. I encourage giving generously to this important, ongoing work. Also please pray that I will be able to hire an assistant by November 1st.
Onward & Upward,
STAND FIRM — WALK CAUTIOUSLY — LIVE COURAGEOUSLY
