I don't think trying to change people is very . . .

Christlike. I see the picture you have in your upper right hand corner.

I think that teaching people the truth is a noble goal; beyond that, those we teach must make their own decisions. It's called several things: free agency, moral agency, free will.

It is even in the bible (Hebrews 12:22; Revelations 12:3-9, focus on verses 4 and 7)--

that there were 'angels' who chose not to follow God. Certainly they knew what they were doing. They didn't want: peace, happiness, joy with God, etc.--

Some of *us* want liberty. Some of *us* want peace. Some of *us* want the political madness in the world (the oligarchy/oppression/destruction) to end.

But, unfortunately, like the angels who 'fell' with the 'dragon' not every human being does. I am beginning to realize that not everyone wants liberty; not everyone wants peace.

I have to accept that. It's hard, but God had to accept it, too; imagine how He has mourned.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
