I pray, give me the wisdom to do it, give me the words to say, bless it to your honor and
glory I pray in Jesus name, amen.

So you say. "What's the problem?" So you say, "What is wrong with Christendom today? What is
wrong with people working for a living and paying taxes, what is wrong with the sin that is in this world today?" All the things that are in the world today, the sin, the corruption, the" workaday" world
has always been here, what the world does, what Satan does in the world is one thing- but the Christian, the one who truly believes and has accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and reason for life, (his Lord), the believer, the body of Christ, is an entirely different subject then what the world is doing. The world is the mission field, the believer is to be the missionary. So what is wrong? what is the whole duty of mankind? Solomon says "Fear God and keep his commandments", Christ said: "If you love me- keep my commandments", and they asked the Lord Jesus Christ, what are the greatest commandments. He said there are two, you do these and you will fulfill all the others. This is what it's all about, "Thou shall love the Lord thy God will all thy heart, soul, and mind, and thy neighbor as thy self. The Lord God, the Lord Jesus Christ, by the power of his holy spirit, that triune God, loving him with all your heart, soul, and mind and your neighbor as yourself, keeping those commandments, fearing God, walking with him- That is to be the utmost priority. Loving your neighbor, and the greatest way to love your neighbor is to help them, to lead them, in the path of eternal life, while walking close to the Lord, that is the number one priority, superseding all other motivations and drives of life in the believer in (to) such extent that there is no comparison to anything else. Not religious doctrines, not doctrines of the kingdom, not doctrines of works, not doctrines of penance and repentance, not the milk, but the meat. Loving the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul and mind, and your neighbor as-yourself, fearing God and keeping his commandments, seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, that's the utmost priority. "and all of these other things shall be added unto you, Take no thought for tomorrow, what ye should eat, what ye shall drink, or what ye should put on, consider the lilies of the field, Solomon in all of his glory was not arrayed as one of these". "No soldier entangleth himself with the affairs of this world that he may serve him who hath called him to be a soldier, for the devil as a roaring lion goeth about seeking who he may devour".
