Questions from a Young Muslim Convert in Prison

Joseph Herrin (11-10-2015)

Note: I continue to work on the new book recently begun, while at the same time attending to other ministry needs. Writing books is progressing slower these days as I find it needful to spend more time with the responsibilities of prison ministry and in answering e-mail from Christians from around the world.

Following is a correspondence with a young, white man who became a convert to Islam while in prison.

Mr. Joseph Herrin,

How are you doing? My name is Dale (last name withheld). I am currently incarcerated. I have read some of your writings that other inmates have let me borrow. I am particularly interested in reading your writings “Babylon Rising” and “Dragon Flood.” I am very sincere in my faith of Islam. So what is your outlook on Islam?? You know, I am a very big conspiracy theorist, and anti-government. But me being on lock-down for almost two years on solitary confinement, I do not have much access to any kind of reading material. I’m really writing you to ask you a few questions. From my own understanding and opinion I believe you are very intelligent. So, I would like to get your opinions on some topics.

Q-1) What do you thing about “ISIS” and the “New World Order”?
Q-2) Why do you think that the American government accused Osama Bin Laden of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centers?? I look at it like this. America oppresses the Middle East so much about oil, and the American country constantly degrades the religion of Islam because they are afraid of the truth. Osama did the right thing. According to Islamic laws we are ordered to fight against oppression. Islam is a beautiful religion if the American country would just open up their eyes. Why would another man die on the cross for me?? Jesus didn’t know me! Now, I’m not denying that Jesus was a very honorable prophet. But he was a man just like you and me. I’ve studied Christian history and did you know Constantine the Great, the Roman Emperor, was the first person who corroborated the New Testament, in 325 A.D. at the Council of Nicaea? Because the pagans and followers of Jesus was warring it was about to split Rome in two. So he fused the two religions and voted on the divinity of Christ.

Now off of that and back to my other questions.

Q-3) After the 9/11 attacks, why was the only plane that was able to take off an Air Force one with Osama’s family on it?
Q-4) Where do the Masons come from and how did they and the Illuminati get their power?
Q-5) What do the Illuminati and the Freemasons teach?

Please answer my questions, and once again I would like to receive “Babylon Rising” and “Dragon Flood” and “Foundation Series” and any other kind of material you can send me that would increase my knowledge. Thanks!


Hello Dale,

Thank you for writing. As you requested, I have added you to the Parables Bookshelf Newsletter mailing list. I have set-up your queue so that you will receive the newsletters containing the books Dragon Flood, and Foundations first, as you specifically requested to receive these two writings. I have also adjusted the queue to send you the books Attractive Deception and Yahweh’s Book after you receive the other two books as these contain information that addresses some of the questions you have asked. There are currently 144 newsletters containing 21 books in the Parables Bookshelf, and I add to them periodically. I typically send out one newsletter to each person on the mailing list each week.

In your letter you mentioned that you are very sincere in your faith of Islam, and you inquired as to what my outlook is on Islam. That is an excellent question. I suspect you are familiar enough with the teachings of the New Testament portion of the Bible to understand that the Christian faith is incompatible with the Islamic faith. It is quite apparent that being a Christian is not the same thing as being a Muslim. Although Islam declares Jesus/Isa to be a great prophet, they deny the central claims of Christianity regarding His identity and mission as recorded in the New Testament. They deny that Jesus is God’s son. They deny that He died on the cross. They deny His resurrection from the dead. They deny the purpose of His coming which was to reconcile all men to God through the atoning sacrifice of His life in the place of sinful men, and much, much more. Islam seeks to co-opt and redefine Judaism and Christianity, claiming the patriarchs and prophets of the Bible as her own, while re-imagining their message as something other than that which Jewish and Christian writings reveal the message to be.

Because I am a Christian (according to the Biblical description of a Christian, not Islam’s definition, or Rome’s definition), I find the teachings of Islam to be false. There can be no other conclusion arrived at by those who remain faithful to the teaching of Christ and His apostles as set forth in the Bible. This subject is far too extensive to address in a single letter. I suspect you already understand that Biblical Christianity is NOT proclaiming the same things taught by Islam. If they were, then we would all be of the same faith, but it is apparent that Christianity and Islam are different faiths today despite the Islamic tendency to redefine Christianity according to their own Islamic beliefs. The error of Islam attempting to define what a person must believe to be an authentic Christ should be readily apparent. It would be like a Christian saying that all true Muslims must believe that Jesus/Isa is the Son of God, died on a cross, and rose from the dead: That Jesus/Isa is the ONLY begotten Son of God, and that Mohammed is a false prophet. Any Muslim would surely scoff at such assertions, and they would deny that Christianity has any authority to define Muslim beliefs. Yet, Islam is not shy about telling Christians what they must believe if they are to be true Christians. I reject Islam’s authority to dictate Christian beliefs. The only authority I recognize is the Holy Spirit and the Bible. Nor am I alone, for from antiquity all true disciples of Christ have done the same.

Dale, I am a Christian according to the Biblical definition of Christianity, not the Quran’s definition of Christianity. I believe the claims that Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah made regarding His divinity, His divine Sonship, and His preeminence above all other created things. I believe the testimony of the Gospel writers and the apostles who wrote the books of the New Testament; namely that Jesus/Yahshua was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross as a ransom for the sins of mankind, rose again from the dead three days later, ascended to the Father in heaven forty days after His crucifixion, and He has been entrusted with the ministry of reconciling all things, whether in heaven or on earth, back to the Father. Jesus/Yahshua alone is the gate through which all men must enter if they are to be reconciled to God. When He ascended to the Father He sent forth His Holy Spirit to indwell the hearts of all who believed on His name and to produce in them the divine life they lacked which is necessary to overcome sin.

You can judge for yourself that these Biblical teachings and beliefs are incompatible with Islam, so the answer to your question regarding my “outlook on Islam” should be anticipated by you. It should not come as any surprise that I view Islam as a false teaching, a deception of Satan, that stands in opposition to the truths of Yahweh and His Son Yahshua.

I am not heedless of the fact that my frank declaration of these things may offend someone who describes themselves as a “sincere” adherent of Islam. I assure you that my intent in speaking in this manner is NOT to offend you. I believe that as a son of God and a disciple of Christ Jesus/Yahshua the Messiah that I am always to speak the truth in love. It would not be in keeping with the character of Christ if I withheld the truth from you when you asked me what my thoughts are regarding the teachings of Islam. It is only by being frank with one another that we can have an honest dialogue that will permit us to arrive at the knowledge of truth. Truth is the goal I seek in writing to you. I will not deceive you by speaking words of appeasement that are something other than what I truly believe and think. It would be a failure of love and a failure of truth to withhold from you my own “sincere” beliefs.

Dale, I have corresponded with numerous other men, mostly in prison, who profess to be Muslims. One of the things they frequently bring up is that Christianity has become corrupted by the paganism of Rome. As you yourself have done, they often make statements regarding Constantine having merged pagan belief with Christian belief, resulting in an abominable corruption of the truth. Although I do not deny that much of what is identified as Christianity today is very much corrupted, including the Roman Catholic Church and many Protestant denominations that have embraced the corruptions of Rome, I would not lay the blame directly at the feet of the Roman Emperor Constantine. He did have a significant part to play, but Satan was busily working to corrupt the Christian churches long before Constantine came along. The book of Revelations reveals this to be true, for of the seven churches Christ addresses in the opening chapters of the book, five of them are severely reproved for already haven departed from truth and love in significant ways. This book was written more than two centuries before Constantine’s time.

One of the responsibilities of ministers of Christ has always been to refute error and to teach truth. Doing so has occupied a large portion of my own ministry. I have numerous and extensive writings that refute error in the church. That error exists among Christians does not prove that the Christian faith is false. Rather, it demonstrates that Satan has made it a priority to introduce deception and false doctrines into the church from the beginning and that all Christians should be aware of Satan’s activity, and diligent to seek out truth and identify error.

What the Muslims do not acknowledge when they use such arguments to seek to refute Christianity, is that their own history is one of corruption and idolatry. Recently, I shared the following with another man in prison.

I am encouraged to hear that you were able to get past your offense and receive the things I wrote about the Roman Catholic Church and its embrace of the ancient religions of Babylon. I am enclosing some additional writings on this subject for your review that you might test the information and make an informed judgment on the material.

One of the enclosed writings contains two chapters from my most recent book titled Attractive Deception – The False Hope of the Hebrew Roots Movement. One of the chapters is The Hats of Satanic Dominion. You will note in there that it includes a photograph of the Pope standing beside an Orthodox Jew and a Muslim Cleric. The revealing thing is that all three men are wearing the same type of hat. The Jews call it the Kippah. The Pope’s hat is called the Solideo (literally meaning “Sun God”), and the Islamic hat is called the Taqiyah. Muslims particularly wear these caps when praying.

Satan recognizes that for a man to cover his head while praying is an insult to God. That is why Satan has led all three of these religions to embrace this practice. Satan will do everything he can to insult the Creator. The apostle Paul in his letter to the church in Corinth, speaks about the matter of a man having his head covered or uncovered while praying.

I Corinthians 11:3-7
But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ. Every man who has something on his head while praying or prophesying, disgraces his head. But every woman who has her head uncovered while praying or prophesying, disgraces her head; for she is one and the same with her whose head is shaved. For if a woman does not cover her head, let her also have her hair cut off; but if it is disgraceful for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, let her cover her head. For a man ought not to have his head covered, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman is the glory of man.

The principle that Paul is teaching relates to the subject of glory. The glory of God is to be displayed throughout the creation. However, mankind is to humble himself in the presence of God, for it is unseemly for man to show forth his own glory when in Yahweh’s presence. It is unseemly for flesh and blood to glory in the presence of God.

I Corinthians 1:26-29
For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence.

What Paul teaches us is that man was created to show forth the glory of God. Woman in turn shows forth the glory of man. Finally, the woman’s hair reveals the glory of the woman.

Because man is created in the image and glory of God, the man should not have his head covered when praying or prophesying, for this is to put a cover on God’s glory. Woman is man’s glory, so she should have her head covered while praying or prophesying. This is a sign of humility.

What I want to point out to you is that the Orthodox Jews, the Pope, Cardinals and Bishops of Rome, and the Muslims all practice covering their heads while praying because they have all embraced the same error that began in Babylon. Babylon throughout the Bible is used as a symbol of Satan’s kingdom in the same way that Zion is a symbol of Yahweh’s kingdom. The word Babylon means “confusion.” It was at Babel that the language of man was confused and men began speaking in different tongues.

Wherever we see the symbols of Babylon present, such as in the hats worn by these three religions, we can be certain that Satan is present and has mixed together truth and error, bringing forth a state of confusion. As I have shown in the writing Syncretism that I am sending you, the Roman Catholics brought great confusion into the truth taught by Christ and His apostles by mixing in the false teachings of Babylon. One thing Babylon was renowned for was its worship of the heavenly bodies such as the sun, moon, and stars (including the planets). The book of Job is considered among the oldest books of the Bible, and in it we read of the practice of worshiping the sun and moon already being established, and being an offense to God.

Job 31:26-28
If I have looked at the sun when it shone, or the moon going in splendor, and my heart became secretly enticed, and my hand threw a kiss from my mouth, that too would have been an iniquity calling for judgment, for I would have denied God above.

Yahweh forbid the forming of any image resembling the heavenly bodies, or the worship of the same.

Deuteronomy 4:19
And beware, lest you lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and be drawn away and worship them and serve them.

Have you ever stopped to consider where the emblems of the Islamic religion came from?

The worship of the moon and stars traces its origin back to Babylon. By leaving Roman Catholicism, and embracing Islam, you have simply traded one Babylonian religion for another. They are both Luciferian, being false religions that are an offense to Yahweh.

Before the Arab people embraced the religion of Mohammed, they were worshipers of many deities. One of those deities was the moon god who was known as “Allah.” The word Allah today means “the God,” but before the time of Mohammed the Arabs used the word Allah to refer specifically to the moon god.

Consider that Muslims today place the image of the crescent moon atop their mosques. This identifies the god whom they worship. They worship the ancient moon god whom they call Allah.

You are likely familiar with the fact that the most holy site in the Islamic religion is the Kaaba in Mecca. This black cube made of stone pre-dates the religion of Islam. Before there was an Islamic religion, before Mohammed was even born, the Kaaba was located in Mecca as a shrine to the Nabatean moon god called Hubal. Following is a quote from the Wikipedia website.

According to Sarwar, about 400 years before the birth of Muhammad, a man named “Amr bin Lahyo bin Harath bin Amr ul-Qais bin Thalaba bin Azd bin Khalan bin Babalyun bin Saba,” who was descended from Qahtan and was the king of Hijaz had placed a Hubal idol onto the roof of the Kaaba. This idol was one of the chief deities of the ruling Quraysh. The idol was made of red agate and shaped like a human, but with the right hand broken off and replaced with a golden hand. When the idol was moved inside the Kaaba, it had seven arrows in front of it, which were used for divination.

In another Wikipedia article on Hubal, we read the following:

Hubal was a god worshiped in pre-Islamic Arabia, notably at the Kaaba in Mecca. His idol was a human figure, believed to control acts of divination, which was in the form of tossing arrows before the statue. The direction in which the arrows pointed answered questions asked of the idol. The origins of the cult of Hubal are uncertain, but the name is found in inscriptions from Nabataea in northern Arabia (across the territory of modern Syria and Iraq). The specific powers and identity attributed to Hubal are equally unclear…

Hubal most prominently appears at Mecca, where an image of him was worshiped at the Kaaba. According to Karen Armstrong, the sanctuary was dedicated to Hubal, who was worshiped as the greatest of the 360 idols the Kaaba contained, which probably represented the days of the year.

What is revealed is that when Mohammed conquered Mecca, he did not create an entirely new religion. He kept many of the same ancient and revered sites, such as the Kaaba. Mohammed’s religion differed from the earlier ones in significant ways, but it also retained numerous elements of former Arab beliefs. This includes the symbolism of the crescent moon and star. So Islam is, like Roman Catholicism before it, a corrupt mixture of different belief systems which all trace back to Babylon. And like Roman Catholicism, Islam takes the historic Christ and makes Him into something less than He truly is. Islam speaks of Jesus, calling Him Isa. But they merely call Him a prophet, and state that Mohammed is a greater prophet. In the same way, Roman Catholics elevate Mary worship to a higher status than that of her Son. I know they deny this, but any honest look at the veneration of Mary, the many statues of her, their prominent placement, praying the rosary, etc., reveal that the Roman Catholics have lifted up Mary higher than her Son even as the Muslims lift up Mohammed higher than Isa.

As I have shown in my book on the Hebrew Roots movement, the Orthodox Jews hate Jesus with such a violent hatred that they say a person cannot be a Jew and a Christian. To believe in Christ is to be excommunicated from the Hebrew nation.

This should lead one to question, why do all of these religions, which all wear the same Babylonian hats, want to deny the truth of who Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah is so badly? The reason is that they are all under the influence of Lucifer who is the sworn enemy of Yahweh God and His only begotten Son.

Pope Francis, a Jew, and a Muslim

Dale, I am also printing off for you the writings mentioned in this letter to the other man as they contain information that will help you to evaluate the various religions that are mentioned. I am sending you the following writings:

Satanic Inroads to Judaism and Christianity
The Hats of Satanic Dominion

Christianity does not deny the presence of deception and its encroachment into the faith which professes to follow Jesus Christ/Yahshua the Messiah. Quite the opposite. The Bible gives Christians numerous admonitions to test all things, to be aware of deception, and Jesus/Yahshua Himself proclaimed that at the end of the age deception and false teaching would be so pervasive that the vast majority would be swept away with it. The true disciples of Jesus Christ have always needed to contend with deception.

Matthew 24:5
“For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many.”

Matthew 24:24-25
“For false Christs (anointed ones) and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have told you in advance.”

II Peter 2:1-3
But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned; and in their greed they will exploit you with false words…

Consequently, I am not surprised, nor dismayed, that men such as Constantine have been used of Satan to sow great confusion and falsehood into the Christian faith. What Peter testified is true. These men’s actions have caused “the way of truth to be maligned.” Indeed, you are one of those maligning Christianity due to the errors introduced by these false workers who pretended to be representatives of God and His Son. These deceivers, and those who malign the way of truth due to their actions, merely reinforce the truths proclaimed by Christ and His apostles, for they prophesied that these things would take place.

Let me move on to your other questions. You asked what I think of “ISIS” and “the New World Order.” Much could be written about both of them. When you read the chapters in the book Dragon Flood about the control of the media by six (now 5) megalithic global corporations, and the methods by which a global elite “manufacture consent,” shaping the beliefs of people across the world, you will be in a better position to accept the fact that nothing is as it seems in this world. As the Bible declares, “The whole world lies in the power of the evil one,” and Satan is “the great deceiver who deceives the whole world.”

ISIS is not a spontaneous uprising of Islamic radicals who are intent on establishing a Muslim caliphate in the Middle East. They are a creation of the CIA and other groups who carry out the will of Satan in this world. I have a writing titled Have You Been Played Lately? that speaks of the creation of ISIS. I will print out that writing and send it to you.

Regarding your question about what I think about the New World Order, I am not sure what you are asking. Is your intent to ask whether I believe in the existence of a group who are seeking to establish a New World Order? Is your interest in what I think of the goals of those who support a New World Order, or is your interest something else? I have written a considerable amount on various aspects of the New World Order. This subject is addressed in a number of writings of mine and I would be hard pressed to locate all of them. The subject is touched upon in the Babylon Rising series which you requested and will find enclosed. If you have additional questions, please write again and let me know of your specific area of interest.

You asked why I think the American government accused Osama Bin Laden of the 9/11 attacks. Let me first state that I believe the entire narrative of Osama Bin Laden being responsible for the 9/11 attacks is a ludicrous fabrication sold to the American public and the world. Unfortunately, you do not have access to alternative media and alternative information sources while in prison for there are a massive number of people providing abundant evidence and sound arguments which refute all parts of the government narrative.

I can postulate several reasons why the government chose to blame the 9/11 attacks on Osama Bin Laden. It should be noted that Osama Bin Laden received training by the CIA in earlier years when the U.S. government was training local resistance to oppose the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. The Bush family are also business partners with the Bin Laden family, both families being members of the global elite who are pursuing what you have referred to as the New World Order. (This fact of the Bin Laden family being members of a global elite seeking to bring about the NWO answers your later question about why the only plane permitted to fly after the 9/11 attacks was one carrying the various members of the Bin Laden family out of the country.)

One reason the government chose Osama Bin Laden to be part of their narrative is that the global elite are seeking to divide mankind. By creating a narrative of a Muslim man as the mastermind of 9/11, and declaring that the planes were hijacked by a group of Muslim men (also a false story), they are able to sow discord among religions, and induce hatred toward religion in general. Religious belief has historically been used as a means to divide mankind and to set them at odds with one another. The global elite have a playbook based upon the concept of “divide and conquer.”

Secondly, the government and media have used Osama Bin Laden to shape global opinion to detest and hate anyone who may be described as a “religious extremist.” One thing I noted early on after the events of 9/11 was that the media and government never spoke disparagingly of the Muslim faith, or those who are Muslims. Instead, the term “religious extremist” was used until it was burned indelibly into the minds of all men and women. Thus, the world has come to despise not just Muslims, but anyone who may be branded with the label of being a “religious extremist.” This label is coming to be applied frequently to Christians. It has been used as a reference to Christians who oppose abortion, Christians who disagree with homosexual marriages, etc.. Satan has done a masterful job of shaping the minds of people everywhere to hate those whose religious beliefs are viewed as intolerant, or which in any way contradict the views of government leaders.

I am going to include another writing in this packet to you which is on the subject of 9/11. It is titled Blowing the Trumpet. Unfortunately, many of the links in the various articles I am sending you are to Internet websites that you will not be able to access. However, there is much information of value to be gleaned from what is written in the articles.

You asked where the Freemasons come from and how did they and the Illuminati get their power? I am unable to set forth a complete history of Freemasonry or the Illuminati at this time, but it is widely understood that Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati in Bavaria, Germany on May1, in the year 1776. (Note that May 1st is a annual day of celebration in Communist countries, and America reveres the number 1776.) I could set forth facts and figures revealing how those who are members of the Illuminati networked together, gained positions of influence in government, religion, and commerce, but the deeper truth is that Satan gives power and wealth to those whom he desires. His requirement is that the individual(s) must worship and serve him.

Matthew 4:8-9
Again, the devil took [Jesus/Yahshua] to a very high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world, and their glory; and he said to Him, “All these things will I give You, if You fall down and worship me.”

Although the Son of God rebuked Satan for his inappropriate invitation, there have been a great many men and women who have responded differently. Many are those who will serve Satan to obtain wealth, pleasure, fame, power, or some other desire now, even though it will lead to great shame and suffering in the ages to come as they meet with the judgment of a righteous and holy God. Satan is “the prince of this world” and “the god of this world,” as Jesus/Yahshua described Him. He does have authority over the nations. This truth is set forth in the book Foundations which you will be receiving in the newsletters I will be sending to you.

You also asked what the Freemasons and Illuminati teach. They would likely deny that they teach anything, but their beliefs are very similar to the teachings Satan has used to deceive mankind all the way back to ancient Babylon. The Freemasons teach that man can become godlike through his own actions. This process is described by the word “apotheosis” and it is often depicted using the symbol of climbing a ladder. The basic premise is that man can make himself better by apprehending secret, or mystical knowledge and by performing good works. This is the same teaching present in Kabbalah, for Freemasonry is essentially the teachings of Kabbalah adapted for all humanity. The explanation of Freemasonry’s beliefs is far too extensive to relate in a letter such as this. Albert Pike, the Supreme Commander of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in North America during the latter part of the 1800s wrote an encyclopedic tome of Masonic beliefs titled Morals and Dogma. That book was 861 pages in length, and was used as a standard for Masonic belief for more than a century.

There is a commonality to many Satanic beliefs. They emphasize good works and the attainment of esoteric knowledge. They also show a tendency to take the Bible and wrest false interpretations and explanations for its text. Freemasonry adheres to this pattern.

The most important question you asked is the following.

Why would another man die on the cross for me?? Jesus didn’t know me! 

The apostle Paul answered this question. His words are recorded in his letter to the Romans.

Romans 5:5-8
For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

It was because of the perfect love of God that He has toward mankind that He sent His Son to die in our place, accepting on our behalf the penalty of our sins.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Titus 3:3-7
At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.

Dale, a natural man would scarcely die for another. But we are not talking about an ordinary man here. We are speaking of the Son of God who bears the character of His heavenly Father. God is just, but He is also merciful. One of the most profound statements in all of Scripture is the following.

James 2:13
For judgment will be merciless to one who has shown no mercy; mercy triumphs over judgment.

Yahweh’s mercy is greater even than judgment. The judgment of God demanded that sin be met with the just penalty of death. Yet the mercy of God chose to send His Son to die in the place of sinful men such as you and I. Yahweh takes no pleasure in punishing men, or delivering them over to death as the just penalty of their sin. He would far rather that men repent and begin to live righteously, but they can only do this if they receive His Holy Spirit to dwell in them.

Ezekiel 33:11
“Tell them, ‘As I live,’” says the Lord Yahweh, “I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live…”

I need to close for now. I am sending you a lot of material. Once you have had time to consider it, please feel free to write to me again and share your comments or additional questions.
