At my wife’s suggestion, I am going to make available names of some of the books that have been used greatly of the Father in my personal ongoing transformation.
I see it, our being ‘translated’ out of/from the kingdom of darkness into the Family of God as the Scriptures refer to it, as entering into a whole new realm, world of existence and living. Much like what happened to the four children, (Peter, Susan, Edmond and Lucy) in the Narnia adventures, being translated through the portal of the wardrobe into a mystical world of adventure and wonder.
One hideous operation I experienced and realized after the fact within the template of organized religion was my being lobotomized, maybe very similar to how one boils a frog in very slight increments.
One thing I know religion can NOT tolerate is one daring to question the given, established, collective approved of God body of knowledge.
I see it being much like the adage ‘children are to be seen, not heard’.
So many torturous devices have been designed to either lobotomize or emasculate those simply trying to respond to the Father of their spirit, prompting, nudging them from within burping up into their consciousness, ‘questions,’ God forbid!
The plethora of material that was once available to those wanting to pride themselves in looking better at doing better have become a foul stench to many of those same believers.
I know for a fact our Father is NOT restricted or limited in any manner, He is most capable of establishing fully mature sons; He is our source and our only Life. It is also good to know He is able to speak uniquely in our own personal language, and each of us discovering He is fully present and relatable.
He welcomes us, embraces us, in all and any questions we might have, He so desires to be a joint participant of our adventure and journey in discovering what it means to BE Loved.
Here are some of the books especially by my friend Bill Landon that I have read and read over again that continue to be used in transformation.
The Life That Is Real Life
The Devil You Don’t Know
The Rise and Fall of Self (The problem with us is us)
Life In The Leper Colony
My Father And Your Father
