2007 Calendar Insert

We hope this note finds you well in soul, body, mind, and spirit; and at peace in your home. We have settled into a routine of teaching English in Russia Spring and Fall, spending Winters in Florida and Summers in New York. We arrived in Cape Coral from Zheleznovodsk on December 12th, 2006. We are like visitors everywhere. 

Why would we go to Russia? This year they killed the head of the National Bank and again some political leaders for being honest. Twelve miles from our home the Islamists killed an Imam, with a wife and three children for preaching peace with and respect for none Muslims which violates the Koran. See below.

Koran Sura 9 The Immunity
.1 (This is a declaration of) immunity by Allah and His Apostle towards those of the idolaters with whom you made an agreement. 
.2 So go about in the land for four months and know that you cannot weaken Allah and that Allah will bring disgrace to the unbelievers. 
.3 And an announcement from Allah and His Apostle to the people on the day of the greater pilgrimage that Allah and His Apostle are free from liability to the idolaters; therefore if you repent, it will be better for you, and if you turn back, then know that you will not weaken Allah; and announce painful punishment to those who disbelieve. 
.4 Except those of the idolaters with whom you made an agreement, then they have not failed you in anything and have not backed up any one against you, so fulfill their agreement to the end of their term; surely Allah loves those who are careful (of their duty). 
.5 So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful." 
....
.29 Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Apostle have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth(i), out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection. 
.30 And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away! 
.31 They have taken their doctors of law and their monks for lords besides Allah, and (also) the Messiah son of Mary and they were enjoined that they should serve one God only, there is no god but He; far from His glory be what they set up (with Him). Perceptions Index 2006

Tied in the top three least corrupt nations are Finland, Iceland and New Zealand.

Look at the map and ask what is the single factor that correlates the most to safe homes and streets? It is not the percentage of people that say they believe in Christ, God or Allah. It is not the percentage of people that say they are Christian that would be Orthodox and Roman Catholic Dominated Countries like Italy, Brazil, Mexico and Greece. It is not the percentage of people that worship their ancestors. It is not those who believe in reincarnation. All these have a positive influence. Note 5th Singapore, ó a culture from being a British Trading Colony ó Religion: 42% Buddhist, 15% Muslim, 14% Christian, 9% Taoist, 4% Hindu.

We are reminded that the Prince Vladimir of Russia (1000 years after Jesus) murdered his brother to get the place of power and caused a young Christian and his father to be sacrificed (murdered) to his pagan gods before converting to the Orthodox Catholic Church and converting Russia. About the same time the Scandinavianís stopped sacrificing (murdering) to their pagan gods to get their approval. The Iroquois Indians annually sacrificed (murdered) a beautiful maiden to their god of Niagara Falls (that roared) until hearing of Christ in the 1700ís. Similarly today many are committing suicide (self murder) and murdering others in the process as a sacrifice to their god as many Japanese did in World War II. †

This map is the objectively observed truth. Jesus said, ďknow the Truth and the Truth will make you free!Ē It is also true that the map shows the cause-effect power of reading and respecting the words of the apostles. They are the 12 of Mathew Chapter 10, the 70 of Luke Chapter 10 and those that Jesus in Luke 10:2 said to pray more labors would come to the harvest like Paul, Luke, Timothy Titus and the present day apostles that give up all to go two-by-two.The Catholic Church saved the New Testament from the corruption of the Gnostics and saved Spain from the beheading evangelism of Islamists. Donít forget that the pilgrims were being murdered and enslaved on their way to the Holy Land is why the Crusades started and in the first crusade all were murdered or enslaved!But the Catholic Church put priests and saints between people and God. They went away from Home Churches established by Christís Ministry of Luke 10. They reestablished houses of worship and paid ministers. In early times the people were illiterate and became corrupted with rituals that they easily understood from their pagan heritage. They kept people from reading the bible and had the service in Latin. The effect of keeping the bible from the people is clear on the map.

The societies with the safest homes and streets are where the highest percentage of the people has a cultural background of the New Testament read in the homes or the culture generated from that. A country tied for the lowest corruption is New Zealand. New Zealand has the largest percentage of people in Home Churches established and maintained by the present day apostles of Luke Chapter 10!†

We read Abraham looked for a new city and started a new culture with THE MOST HIGH UNSEEN GOD (it was in his soul he had no written directions!). Moses brought the Law that even Pharaoh was subject to (and all have been guilty of violating it). We believe that the Spirit of Christ says love God first, and then love our neighbor like our self. Hate the sin but love the sinner. If I do this it is the Law in my sole, I will not violate the Law (how can I love my neighbor like myself if I do not love myself?). We believe that Jesus taught us to confront the sin in our life and the home and the work we are responsible for. Submit to those in authority over us, forgive them their errors and shortcomings; and serve them as a service to God. What is God? Paul said, "In Him we live and move and have our being" (We believe God is everything that cannot be created or destroyed). We believe that we are like a cell in God's body. We have a little while to help or harm the body by our care for self and other selves (cells).

The relative darkness of some ďChristianĒ areas can be explained. It is where people go to paid priests and pastors in houses of worship. They re-established a Levitical type priesthood that we believe Christ came to replace with church in us and meeting in the home. We feel these churches in the world often deny the direct fellowship with God through Christís Gospel of Luke 10. They deny the Apostles of Luke 10 that establish Elders (Bishops) and Deacons in private homes for the regular meeting with each taking part in prayers, hymns and testimony with the emblems of remembrance of Christ. We believe the true Church is in the souls of those who by Jesusí example are born again of Godís Spirit (Living, loving and learning in the Spirit of Truth and service to what we understand from Jesus as Eternal Good). We believe the Soul is our enculturation and the Spirit is our soulís guiding projection into the future. We are Christís church: Hebrews 3: ď6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end. :7 Wherefore (as the Spirit of Truth/Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice, :8 Harden not your hearts,Ē The description of a thing or event is not the thing or event. We go to Russia to show the living and written New Testament. We do this by teaching spoken English while reading the Russian/English New Testament, by bible study, and preparing a place and people for the present day Apostles of Luke Chapter 10. This fall we had two small classes meeting twice a week in the public library. The Lordís servants of Luke 10 came to stay for a time and teach a week and a half after we left. No matter what happens no one can take this away the truth and joy of coming this far! We are thankful! We thank God for those who have helped with mail, house watching, travel, prayer and fellowship. Forgive us our errors and shortcomings. Psalm 40:10 I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy loving kindness and thy truth from the great congregation.†
