The Pharisee calls Christ “Master”; this is a deceptive lie. Only the son may call his father, “father”; and only student may call his teacher, “teacher”; so it follows that only the disciple may call his master, “master”. The Pharisee is not a disciple of Christ. He does not follow Christ nor is he seeking instruction from Christ. He therefore has not right to address Christ as “Master”. It is true that Christ is God and is therefore [...]

In this life we often experience mystically or symbolically things that will take place on higher levels. The physical death that we see so very often in this life should waken our consciences to the terrible reality of the death of soul that takes place with the commission of mortal sin. The beauty and wonders of this life should excite within u [...]

All are brought together in Jesus Christ.Leprosy symbolizes the sin of the soul, and all men both Israelite and Gentile have been infected with the disease of sin from our first parent — Adam. We are all God's creatures, but we have gotten lost in our journeys to Him. Some h [...]
