Redemption of Faith

40) Our faith will redeem us Travelling like an aimless meteor From one to the other worldly wish, We're used to hanker for pleasure And in the end receive anguish! Someday will surely come When we'll ascend from ourselves.

Here is a book of 88 poems, written in about last eight months by the poet on various themes. These include his varied feelings, ideas, moods, realization and so on. Again, some of the poems read like a series of soliloquy of his mind. The topics are spread over arenas like economic, social, cultural, and emotional spheres. Issues from the national and international fields sometimes haunt him though, he rather consciously avoid speaking on political agenda. His political belief is rather unpronounced in his poems, although he has definitely some areas of conviction. His religious feelings denote that he has a pantheistic turn of mind and his humanistic faith is sometimes forcefully expressed. Certain poems show a similarity with Tagores belief in the God of Life. The form as well as language of the poems is quite simple; their contents are expressed in a matter-of-fact way, with little scope of ambiguity. It seems the poet does not believe much in experimentation. Like his first book from the Partridge, it is expected that this present volume will also be critically appreciated by the readers of poetry in the international literary arena.

Most Christians, and even some non-Christians, know the parable of the Sower of the Seeds. Jesus told this parable to a crowd of people who were following him. In Seeds of Faith you will see, through the life of one pastor named Larry Ballholland and a young man named Matthew, how the gospel is spread to the many colorful characters who live in a small town in northern New York. You will follow these characters through their numerous, joyous and sorrowful experiences; from eel fishing on Lake Ontario to struggling with sobriety to the bonds of friendship and how one tragedy changed many lives in the small town of Beaumont. Although the town and characters are fictitious, the reactions the inhabitants have to the presentation of the gospel of Jesus Christ are similar to those the author has witnessed throughout his Christian life. As you read this book try to determine which type of soil; hard, stony, thorny or good soil, the seeds of faith, the gospel, falls on as it is presented to the different characters in the book. It is hoped that through reading Seeds of Faith, you will have a broadened understanding of how a person may receive the good news of forgiveness of sin and offer of salvation through a belief and trust in Jesus Christ. This story also shows how the saving grace of Jesus Christ comforts and transforms the people of this small town. You will see how the Holy Spirit can take the hard soil of a person's heart and eventually cultivate it into good soil with good depth resulting in a faithful, fruitful Christian life thereafter.

God s Redemption Plan is Universal and Based on Faith

"God’s plan of redemption is universal; it is for all peoples, irrespective of beliefs.

"God’s plan of redemption is universal; it is for all peoples, irrespective of beliefs. After Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan to sin against God, they were not only separated from God, their successive generations were also separated from him; and their rebellious corrupted nature would unfortunately become the inherited nature of mankind. This separation meant that God could no longer relate with his human creation. The result is that man became so sinful and wicked that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time (Genesis 6:5). “The wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23), so the sinful is doomed to perish. But it is not God’s will that anyone should perish, but for all to have eternal life” (John 3:16). So he put in place a plan of redemption immediately after the fall, in order to reconcile all who will come to him (Genesis 3:15). His first test of this plan was when he destroyed the whole earth with flood because he was grieved and pained by the wickedness of man; only Noah and his family were saved because of Noah’s faith. God’s message then, is still His message today; only those who have faith in Him will be saved, others will perish. Abraham was a man who had faith in God, and so was Moses; God made a covenant with Abraham to bless his descendants, and through him, bless other peoples of the earth (Genesis 12:3). God also made a covenant with Moses in which the blood of animals temporarily atoned for the sins of the Israelites. This covenant was a prelude to the ultimate covenant God had with Jesus Christ - one that involved Jesus shedding His own blood on the cross to atone for the sin of mankind, in order that God’s redemption plan can be accomplished. This plan initiated after the fall, involved Abraham, Moses, and ultimately Jesus, “the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:36). These names are common to Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the three major religions, whose goal is to reconcile their faithful to God. This reconciliation is possible only through faith in Jesus Christ, whose shed blood on the cross serves as the only atonement for the sin of all of mankind – “For without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sin” (Hebrews 9:22). And without forgiveness, there is no reconciliation!"--

God and Free Will can be considered a spiritual and/or inspirational book. Every story in this book is true. It's about drinking with the devil, contemplating suicide, surviving Hurricane Katrina, sex abuse, divorce, and shady business practices. There are lessons learned when fishing in the Atchafalaya Basin, going on medical mission trips to Guatemala, eating a snowball, and the movies Star Wars, Princess Bride, Apollo 13, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Rocky. In addition, there are factual stories regarding Princess Diana, Mother Teresa, President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, a Doolittle Raider, a Japanese Pearl Harbor pilot, the atomic bomb, witnessing trauma, murder, and drug overdose. There is even an answer to why we suffer. Most of all, it's about hearing God's call to forgive, offer peace and love, and about people who changed the world, for better or worse-like a man who adopted two thousand children. In the middle of all these true stories is me-living in a world of sin, lies, and fighting for my redemption! God and Free Will is about choice and outcome that will bring death or everlasting life.
