I am standing right where God wants me to be.
I am honoring His Church, its Holy Traditions, apostolicity and ecclesiology.
In doing so I rely heavily on percept. I go further, focusing on phenomenology. Both percept and phenomenology are the direct experience of God in life. The foundation to percept and phenomenology is prayer.
When someone fails to pray regularly and in truth, then faith becomes a “concept” – a matter of desiccated concepts, i.e., slippery slopes, blackened muddy slopes (the paths being taken by the secularists).
I am not an optimist nor am I a pessimist. If a label must be placed on me, I am apocalyptic, knowing that I (and all) will have to confront the truth and the Truth at a moment’s notice, perhaps without notice–without forewarning.
If I (and you) have been true to His Church–apostolicity and ecclesiology–perhaps we may, with His mercy, have a chance at His kingdom.
I write for no one else and to no one else. I never have. I write to confront my experiences and encounters with humanity and God. I write as I struggle to accept His will. His will has nothing to do with happiness, comfort, ethnicity, racism, and materiality. His will is about our salvation.
This world is a forge to sharpen our spiritual strength to accept His will.
If a person should decide to challenge His will, ignoring His Church–apostolicity and ecclesiology, then that person is engaging in an unholy war in which the outcome is already known. He will win.
If you believe this or any writing is about you, in any manner critical of you, then there exists pride. Be careful where the prideful lead others.
If my writings benefit you, then glory to God. But rest not on the writings alone.
In one’s own will, there is no peace.
“In His will is our peace.”
