Voluntary Dispossession...

Seems Mark and TJ have been going through some of the same things, maybe all of us to a certain extent have been going through this reality that's been "smacking" me in my heart of hearts. Detachment to the things ( lures/cares/lusts - either material or sexual) of this world. Please read Marks powerful post here.

Here's an excerpt of scripture from the post.

If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. (Matt 16:24)

Deny what?

…all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the pride of life… (I Jn 2:26)

Birth/Death, Michael D. O’Brien
