“…The outcasts from the moving-picture world are the intelligent people.

They have no time for the movies because the movies generally have no time for intelligent people.”

All human enemies of God are enemies by THEIR choice, not His. -11/28/14

Every sinner (once he’s heard from Jesus) is a sinner by choice.

Every saint is a saint by choice and stays a saint by continuing to follow Jesus.

He may have been chained as a galley slave [1]

With no hope it seemed, but beyond the grave

But his mind was free, yes free to soar

Above the splash and pull of the oar.


She may have had to mill the king’s flour

Be thus employed hour on slave hour.

But it was not so with her good mind

It sailed in realms above the low grind.


The gracious God of all time and of space,

Has so created His scattered “man race”

That though enslaved, the lowest of men,

The body’s all that can ascend.


Two parts of man, the greater, greater by far,

Have boundless spheres, ah, past the nearest star,

And can delve and travel and explore

Beyond ceiling, walls, or swaying floor


The mind (Should we also call it soul?)

Can’t be bound by fetter, chain, nor pole

If this soul/mind is redeemed by God

It has a home far above greening sod.


Only sin can the mind of man enslave;

(Sin can make a coward of the brave).

Sin’s habits and thoughts, and words, embind.

Only sin can fetter a man’s mind


Oh, what a Salvation, oh, Godly gift,

Freeing the mind, allowing a daily “lift”

Above grinds and galleys of man’s strife;

Salvation un-slaves the mind-life.

The more home you have in this world

COULD lessen your interest in a home above the sky.

And, for sure, the more you FEEL AT HOME in this world,

the less likely you are to enjoy a “mansion” beyond the blue.
