“A voluntary socialists might ask, as a challenge to that sentence, that claim, the following question.
Who owns the air we breath?”

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Everything including the air belongs to God, He made it. He has given man dominion over His creation.


"2. Power to direct, control, use and dispose of at pleasure; right of possession and use without being accountable; as the private dominion of individuals."

“Ownership means the right to control something.”

God has given me the right to control the air I breathe. When I inhale, it belongs to me. My body uses it and exhales what I cannot use. God has given my exhale to the plants and trees. God has given the plants and trees “exhale” to me.

It all belongs to God, but he has given us the right to use and control. If you experience rapture of the deep…you may find no air for you to control.

“A stuporous condition variously characterized by disorientation, euphoria, and loss of judgment and skill, attributed to nitrogen entering the blood during breathing of normal air at increased pressure, as occurs with deep-sea divers. Also called rapture of the deep .”
“I'm not even Christian, so named, as far as I know, and as far as my history goes I am Catholic. I am an individual. I tried being someone else, and it didn't work.”

I have been something I am not, and God has provided so that I can be what I am.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

I have been a new creature since age 7. Any other shoes do not fit well. The cry of my heart at age 7: Jesus I know you died for me. I am a sinner, please forgive me of all my sins and come into my heart and live in me. I give my life to you. I want you to be my Lord.

Colossians 1:9 For this cause we [I] also, since the day we [I] heard it, do not cease to pray for you [Joe], and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

How are we to use the dominion God has given us?

Luke 10:27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
