Finding comfort in the Bible. Two.

Salvation.

Our need to be in fellowship with God, because most of the world is running around like headless chickens at this time? People are rushing here and there and everywhere and most of the time they are stuck in their mobile devices talking to people they do not know about nothing of any value?

Many people everyday are turning to God of the Holy Bible, out of despair, fear, and mental exhaustion? They want answers to what is this life all about?, Why am I here? and a list in a similar vain continues.

Becoming a Christian is a different experience for each one of us! Some where going along wondering about God, but not really interested and we were chosen! Others sought and found Him in Church, listening to TV or Radio? But all of us had to submit to His will by facing up to our failures and confessing to Jesus?

It is in latter life that the effects such as depression and mental illness raise their ugly heads to restrict in movement and going out. The law has changed over the last few years in Europe to address these issues.

Opus Dei. Part-Four.

The OD makes its money from the promotion of the Mel Gibson The Passion of the Christ, which it promoted. Meanwhile it now has a rich following that provide its needed finances. But not everyone who has joined has felt happy with the harsh discipline that the movement requires at higher levels and they have left. OD is unique in one sense that it has no vows, affiliated monasteries, Churches or orders, that its members remain within secular life and evangelise’s.

Those who have left the Opus Dei say ‘ that they feel that they have been spiritually abused from both mental and physical exhaustion and when they made mistakes.
