“Forced love is a hard sell…” ~priest

"If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea."

– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

People of religion have traditionally forced their beliefs on those less powerful and less educated.  We see that trend all over the world and have experienced it in the history of the United States.  The forcing of religious beliefs is said to be done out of love.  It is this type of love that is hard to sell.

God's love has a purity about it.  It is experienced with a fresh fragrance engulfing it.  There is no need to force God's love.  There is a natural attraction to it.  We just need to live our lives such that others see God's love in us.  God will take care of the rest…

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
