The book is divided in three important parts. Part one talks about God, devil, human, and choices. Part two talks about my biography. My biography reveals some of the reasons why I believe that we are who we are not by choice. Part three talks about the American justice system, and a law suit I filed on my own, against a bank. We say in America justice is for all! I say in America, the justice system is simply a little bit better than other places that I’ve been. Ask yourselves, if the law is run by humans, and we know humans don’t protect human’s right. Humans only protect interest in human rights. How can justice be served to everyone when according to us there is no interest in everyone’s right? But, it’s all about perception. Like our God, everyone thinks the way they perceive God is the right way! It may be true according to them. Because, I read an anonymous quote that says, “Everyone creates their own reality. As for me, I just order every fiber of my body to give glory to God for whom and what I am today. Who I am which resulting what I am today is all due to God. Because the LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. He has a heart for those of us who are nothing. He sees our needs, even before we ask for help. He blessed me even before I even knew him! He changes my messes in to messages. My biography in the middle of the book will tangibly prove my statement. You will learn about my existence throughout the book. You’ll see why I am so in love with the Lord! Most of my siblings have been killed. My father has had 19 kids with eight mothers. Only seven of us remain alive. From 19 kids, he has had five with my mother with whom he was married. I was the first one, but the only one remains alive. See my biography for details. When we create something, we humans issue a manual that tells others how to manage it. The Lord gave the manual of life written with his hand. That’s the 10 commandment. The bible is the development of the Ten Commandments according to human perception. The bible is loaded with philosophy. My belief is whatever it is we’re doing, we are either inspired by Holy Spirit, or the devil. We say, “Those who wrote the bible were inspired by God.” The bible talks about the Lord, of course. The authors would have to be inspired by God through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit talks to us, through our perceptions. I’m also inspired by God to write this book, because I’m talking about God. If this book appears to be against the Lord, may he stop it now!

Are lesbians and gays born? Or are they "made" - constructed by themselves and by their culture? Recent medical findings suggest that there might be a hereditary component to sexual identity, but actual experiences of choice and determination vary widely among gays and lesbians. Drawing on interviews with a diverse group of lesbians and gay men, Vera Whisman analyzes if, and to what extent, choice plays a role in determining sexuality. The answers are neither always clean nor always consistent, and they will have both positive and negative implications for gay men and lesbians as public debates on gender and sexuality escalate. The author finds that when public opinion privileges those whose sexual preference is determined and silences those who choose it, an exclusionary, male-dominated gay politics can result. As a response, we are asked to consider the possibility of chosen homosexuality as one way of making gay and lesbian political organizing more radical, democratic, and egalitarian.
Let go of unhealthy relationships with the book that more than 850K people have trusted.
Author: Robert Hemfelt
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Let go of unhealthy relationships with the book that more than 850K people have trusted. Best-selling doctors, Hemfelt, Minirth, and Meier, walk you through their ten proven stages to recovery from codependency that results from external circumstances. Humans are susceptible to codependency because of our sinful tendency to use defense mechanisms to fool ourselves. In codependent relationships, deceitful games are played, and important Christian principles are often taken out of context and abused. God wants us to have healthy relationships with a balance between being dependent and independent. The doctors describe how the most effective means of overcoming codependent relationships is to establish or deepen a relationship with Christ Himself. They describe the causes of codependency, pointing out the factors that perpetuate it, and lead readers through their ten stages of recovery.

Instead of looking at drub addiction as a disease, Dr. Schaler proposes that we view it as willful commitment or dedication, akin to joining a religion or pursuing a romantic involvement.

Politicians and the media tell us that people who take drugs, including alcohol or nicotine, cannot help themselves. They are supposedly victims of the disease of 'addiciton', and they need 'treatment'. The same goes for sex addicts, shopping addicts, food addicts, gambling addicts, or even addicts to abusive relationships. This theory, which grew out of the Temperance movement and was developed and disseminated by the religious cult known as Alcoholics Anonymous, has not been confirmed by any factual research. Numerous scientific studies show that 'addicts' are in control of their behavior. Contrary to the shrill, mindless propaganda of the 'war on drugs', very few of the people who use alcohol, marijuana, heroin, or cocaine will ever become 'addicted', and of those who do become heavy drug users, most will matrue out of it in time, without treatment. Research indicates that 'treatment' is completely ineffective, an absolute waste of time and money. Instead of looking at drub addiction as a disease, Dr. Schaler proposes that we view it as willful commitment or dedication, akin to joining a religion or pursuing a romantic involvement. While heavy consumption of drugs is often foolish and self-destructive, it is a matter of personal choice.

We all have our dreams in life: the fairy tale that we want to live. It holds us together. It provides us with a direction in this chaotic world. It drives us through life! For most of us, there is already some person present in this world living our fairytale just because of random events happening because of cosmic luck. We would have been living in a utopia only if we were given the chance to choose our time and place of birth. So up in heavens, where all human beings are fashioned, a person is given the opportunity to choose the life he/she wants to live. All the angels are excited to see what he/she chooses, but that person stands there expressionless. There is a problem. In fact, several! How does he/she make a choice for him/herself?
When we read in it of our evil propensities , we are either to understand , first ,
that they are real choices , and thus real sins ; or , secondly , that they are the
effects of our having transgressed the law in Adam , and are thus metaphorically
A handful of humans and a multitude of robots create a new society on an abandoned Earth in this novel by the Nebula Award–winning author of Way Station.

A handful of humans and a multitude of robots create a new society on an abandoned Earth in this novel by the Nebula Award–winning author of Way Station. What if you woke up one morning on Earth . . . and no one else was there? That is the reality that greeted a handful of humans, including Jason Whitney, his wife Martha, and the remnants of a tribe of Native Americans in the year 2135. Their inexplicable abandonment had unexpected benefits: the eventual development of mental telepathy and other extrasensory powers, inner peace, and best of all, near-immortality. Now, five thousand years later, most of the remaining humans live a tranquil, pastoral life, leaving technological and religious exploration to the masses of robot servants who no longer have humans to serve. But the unexpected reappearance of Jason’s brother, who had teleported to the stars many years before, threatens to change everything yet again—for John Whitney is the bearer of startling information about where Earth’s population went and why—and the most disturbing news of all: They may finally be coming home again. Nominated for the Hugo Award when it first appeared in print more than forty years ago, Clifford D. Simak’s brilliant and thought-provoking A Choice of Gods has lost nothing of its power to astonish and intrigue. A masterwork of speculative fiction, intelligent and ingenious, it is classic Simak, standing tall among the very best science fiction that has ever been written.
