Most laws in most countries, are good. They were created and legislated so that they will be of maximum good or of best use to the people in a place.

Take traffic laws for instance. In England, you must drive on the left side of the road; in America, you must drive on the right side of the road. In India, of course, you may drive on any side of the road--as long as there is room.

Culture has laws. In the Far East, you eat with chop sticks. In other countries, they eat with forks and knifes. Of course, in yet other cultures they eat the original way--with hands!

Religions too have laws. "Thou shalt not kill; thou shalt no covet; thou shalt not commit adultery; thou shalt not steal."--these are laws that are found in every major religion of the world.

However, the same laws that are meant to protect you can also imprison you. I have good news; you don’t have to stay in prison.

Open Doors

I read how several people had survived being imprisoned in vehicles for days. One man was trapped in his car in snowdrifts as high as 10 feet and was found by a road crew after 41 hours. A woman was imprisoned in her car for 60 hours after a one-car wreck on an isolated road. Yet another was imprisoned in his smashed car in water under a bridge for 72 hours

Did you know that you are like each of these imprisoned people? Imprisoned, doing everything you can to get out.

We have talked about how imprisonment can come from your own choices, your parents choices, and humanity's choices. Just by being born, you are born unfree.. But there is another prison -- the prison of morality as meritorious, keeping the Law to find rescue.

Well the truth is God’s Son became the great rescuer from the prison of the Law. He clears out the snow, finds you and opens the prison doors.

Contact me and we can discuss this further.

Dealing with Bitterness

Let me ask you, who is at the other end of your resentment? It may be your spouse or a former spouse. Resentment against parents or children; against in laws; against colleague or friends --even a one time best friend.

Unforgiveness and bitterness imprisons you from the inside.

You may have heard of arteriosclerosis--"the hardening of the arteries"--which involves the hardening, thickening and the loss of elasticity in the walls of blood vessels. Unfortunately, it is possible to suffer a non-physical arteriosclerosis--a spiritual hardening of the arteries--where obstruction comes gradually.

Resentment rises up and bitterness builds up--eventuating in a spiritual stroke. You become weak, paralyzed, and immobile.

The flow of friendship and the links of love are blocked. Both your head and heart are affected. You may find that you need nothing short of a surgeon's knife--a spiritual by-pass surgery--to control the problem.

And major surgery is always radical, but the divine doctor can make it a success. Of course, you must follow the doctor's instructions for speedy recuperation and future prevention.

One of the major causes of human pain is the pain of not forgiving.

"It has been three years, and I have not forgiven my brother. I never will," she burst out in anger.

"If I ever get a chance, I will repay him for what he has done. And nobody will ever stop me" remarked another bitter man about his previous employer.

"How many time can I taker her back? She says she is sorry; and then comes back and does the same thing to me."

Bitterness is a problem of life, for we humans have an incredible capacity to wound others in the human species. I don't need to prove that we use this capacity to the fullest extent. In the human community, it does not take long to injure another. No human interaction is possible without the accompanying possibilities of pain, suffering, injury and alienation.

Unforgiveness and bitterness imprisons you from the inside.

I know someone who has the very key you need to gain your freedom from this prison.
