When people want you to fail in life they pump you with wrong things

You’d recall we spoke about false belief not so long ago. That’s a big topic. But justice is not given to it. I don’t know why. Maybe because too many people do not know about it.

And do not want to tackle something that they do not know about. Which is correct. You do not want to tackle something you do not know about.

You leave it alone. In the interim people make mistakes.

Let me ask you something; if you are in Gugulethu, does it mean there is no New York? You know what I mean. Does it mean if you do not see something, that something does not exist?

I know what you are going to say. I chose something wrong. I chose something known. I should have chosen something else. What’s that?

Okay, let’s try this; if you don’t see God, does it mean God is not there?

Excuse me, you’d say. What am I trying to be? Am I trying to be a preacher? You know something happened to me this last festive season.

As I said I vowed to understand this renewal of the mind thing.

What is it? And I understood it to be about false belief. We are adamant. We do not want to believe. And that is why we are not going anywhere in life. Because we think God is about Sunday. When people want you to fail in life, they will pump you with wrong things. And one of them is false belief. There is no God! Ha, ha, ha!

Look at him; he’s a believer. And you feel and look like a square.

So you want to please your masters. You become a non-believer. You welcome and embrace false belief. Does your non-progress in life not bother you? Of course it must bother you. It would be folly if it doesn’t. But you do not look at it as your self-created separation from God. You look at it as something else.

You look at it as; people hate you. They are jealous. They don’t want you to progress. False! And I am here to help you. God is not a Sunday God. For sure, it is good to go to church. It is good to wear your Sunday best, and for people to see you carrying a bible and going to church. It is good to be seen wearing a church uniform. But you wonder why it is women who do that. What about men? It is good to do all that. But as I said, God is not a Sunday God only. He is an everyday God. He is everywhere - in and out of you - in me and in you. And we have pushed Him away from us. That is why we believe He does not exist! But He does. Think about it. New York is there even if you are in Gugulethu. Stay positive.
