A Culture of Narcissism

“Self-admiration has created a culture of narcissism and a ‘love gap’ that diminishes us. What the world needs most is a love that is the polar opposite of narcissism. A love that is selfless and self-abandoning. A love that does not ask, ‘What’s in it for me?’ but ‘What’s in it for those I am privileged to know?’ A love that isn’t about being served but serving others. Your dreams come alive when you are preoccupied with making other people’s dreams come true. That is where real happiness is found.”

Their Passion is His Glory

“We are on the cusp of the emergence of a company of hidden men and women who, with all faith and patience, have been enduring great struggles and dealings; being processed by the Lord and filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ. These are not those who seek a reputation for themselves, their passion is His glory and giving Him the church He has longed for. May God grant us all the heart of apostolic fathering and mothering that can release His power in the earth. Zion is once again in travail to bring forth her children.”

Teaching Kids to Be Safe Online, Too

“My new passion is to get Internet education mandated in all schools.
We’ve got to start teaching our kids how to be safe in the 40,000 plus chat rooms

These sexual predators groom the kids. I know, I’ve arrested enough of them.”

Deep-Burning & Unquenchable Love

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire.
In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce,
but still only light and flickering.
As love grows older, our hearts mature and
our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”
~ Bruce Lee,
Actor, Film Director, Martial Artist,
Philosopher & Founder of Jeet Kune Do (martial art)
