"Conflict is a permanent aspect of the faith until Christ returns. Those who seek to eliminate the conflict between the Church and the World are acting contrary to the Faith."
"Jesus, alone, knew the nearness of the Father. 'I am not alone, for the Father is with me.' It is tempting today to allow aloneness to turn to loneliness, anger, resentment, or despair. Be not afraid. The same Father who was with Jesus is your Father too. You may be left alone, but you are never truly alone. The Father who loves you is with you.
"'I am not alone, for the Father is with me.' We are not defined by our friends, precious though they may be. We are not defined by our marital or family status, much as the world may demand this. We are not even defined by our Christian denomination (or non-denomination). We are who we are because we are the Father’s. We are his because we are Christ’s inheritance, redeemed by his blood and filled with his Spirit."
