WELL SO FAR OUR GOODNESS IS NOT SO HOT FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN UP TO NOW . YEP SO FAR WE
ARE DISCOVERING THAT WE ARE LIVING OUR LIVES IN A GRADE OF 100% OF SIN OR DISOBEDIENCE TO  
LOVE OR TO GOD. YES SO FAR WE CAN SAY WE ARE 100% GUILTY OF BEING DISOBEDIENT TO GOD AND
HIS BEHAVIOR KNOWN AS LOVE. WE MUST ALSO CONFESS WE PRACTISE VERY WELL IN OUR DAILY LIVES
ALL THAT WE HAVE LEARN'T AS TO WHAT SIN REALLY IS UP TO NOW AND AFTER ALL WE HAVE BEEN
PRACTICING THIS BEHAVIOR SINCE BIRTH. BUT LET US NOW CONTINUE OUR COMPARISON OF LOVE AND
THAT OTHER BEHAVIOR KNOWN AS SIN OR DISOBEDIENCE . TURN IF YOU WOULD YOUR BIBLES TO
1ST CORINTHIANS 13 VERSE 5 LOVE THINKETH NO EVIL LET US EXAMINE THIS VRESE BY FIRST DEFINING THE WORD THINK
IN THE GREEK, THIS WORD MEANS MORE THAN JUST TO PONDER OR TO MEDITATE UPON, HERE IT MEANS TO WRITE OR
TO ACCOUNT TO THIS WORD IS A WORD WHICH IS USED IN THE BIBLE AS REFERRING TO AN ACCOUNTANT OR A BOOK-
KEEPER. A BOOK KEEPER IS ONE WHO KEEPS A WRITTEN RECORD OF ALL TRANSACTIONS THAT TAKES PLACE AND IN
ORDER TO HOLD THOSE RESPONSIBILE FOR THOSE TRANSACTIONS . IN SHORT THE VERSE IS SIMPLY STATING THAT LOVE
DOES NOT KEEP RECORD OF ALL THE PAST WRONGS PERFORMED AGAINST HIM. SUCH A PERSON WHO PRACTICES RECORD
KEEPING IS A PERSON WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE THE ACT OF FORGIVENESS. THOSE WHO PRACTICE RECORD KEEPING ARE
VERY ACCURATE IN THERE REMEMBERANCE AS TO EVERY DETAIL OF THAT WHICH WAS DONE TO THEM, WHY THEY CAN
TELL YOU THE VERY YEAR, MONTH, WEEK, AND THE VERY DAY YOU OFFENDED THEM. SOME ARE EVEN ABLE TO TELL YOU
THE EXACT ROOM FOR WHICH IT TOOK PLACE IN AND THE EXACT POSITION FOR WHICH YOU WERE STANDING OR
SETTING , THE TYPE OF CLOTHING YOU WERE WEARING AND IT'S COLOR . BOOK KEEPERS ARE ANGRY AND BITTER PEOPLE
WHO STILL BARE THE EMOTIONAL PAIN OF THEIR WOUNDS , SOME AS LONG AS ONE TO EVEN FIFTY YEARS. BUT THE
MEMORY OF IT IS AS FRESH AS IF IT HAD HAPPENED YESTERDAY, THEY CAN EVEN TELL YOU EVERY WORD THAT WAS
SPOKEN, AND THE WOUND AND IT'S INTENSITY OF IT'S PAIN IS AS FRESH AS THE DAY IT WAS AFFLICTED, FOR THEY
NURTURE IT BY RECALLING IT TO THERE MEMORY DAY AFTER DAY KEEPING THE FIRES OF THEIR ANGER AROUSED.
THEY OFTEN BEAR WITHIN THEIR MINDS AND EMOTIONS WHAT IS KNOWN AS BITTERNESS . THE MEANING OF BITTERNESS
IS SHARP AND DISTASTEFUL , ONE OF THE SYMPTOMS OF BITTERNESS IS WHEN ONE SPEAKS IN QUICK SHARP ANSWERS
WHICH WILL BE RUDE AND OFFENDING . A BITTER PERSON WILL ALSO EXPERIENCE A DISTASTE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO
WITHSTAND BEING IN THEIR PRESENCE . IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS YOU ARE A BITTER , UNFORGIVING ,
RECORD KEEPER WHO NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO ASK FORGIVNESS.
LOVE WILL ALWAYS SEE WHAT IS GOOD IN EVERY PERSON AND WHEN HE SPEAKS TO YOU IT WILL ALWAYS BE IN A KIND AND
GENTLE VOICE WITH A CARING BEHAVIOR AND NOT WITH A LOUD DEFENCIVE TONE ERUPTING FROM A SELFISH MOTIVE. LOVE
WILL DISPLAY KINDNESS TOWARDS OTHERS WHEN THEY LEAST EXPECT IT OR NOT EVEN HAVING BEEN ASKED. LOVE WILL ALSO
DISPLAY HIS NON-SELFISH BEHAVIOR AFTER PERFORMING AN ACT OF KINDNESS BY NEVER REVEALING TO THE ONE TO WHOM HE
HELPED OR TO ANYONE ELSE HIS GOOD DEED, LOVE WILL NEVER BE LOOKING TO BE BRAGGED UPON OR LOOKING FOR
RECOGNITION FOR THE THINGS HE HAS DONE TOWARDS OTHERS. LOVE IS ALWAYS KEEPING AN EYE OUT FOR OPEN DOORS TO
HELP THOSE WHO DESPISE HIM, HATE HIM, AND WISH TO DO WRONG TOWARDS HIM . LOVE ALSO HAS A HABIT OF PUTTING YOUR
SCHEDULE AHEAD OF HIS OWN IN ORDER TO GIVE YOU A HELPING HAND, AND NEVER LOOKING TO SEE IF IT WILL BENEFIT
HIMSELF BY DOING SO.    
LOVE WILL FORGIVE THE WRONGS PERFORMED AGAINST HIM AND REFUSES TO CARRY AROUND THE
BURDEN OF ANY GUILT UPON HIS CONSCIENCE. THEREFORE LOVE WILL QUICKLY ASK TO BE FORGIVEN
FOR ANY WRONG ATTITUDES , BEHAVIORS , WORDS , AND ACTIONS THAT HE MAY HAVE DONE TOWARD
ANOTHER , DESIREING NOT TO BE THE SOURCE OF ANY PAIN OR HURT TO SOMEONE ELSE . FORGIVENESS
IS THE ONLY SOLUTION TO GETTING RID OF THE ANGER , HATE , AND BITTERNESS OF A GUILTY CONS-
SCIENCE . HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE TRUELY FORGIVEN SOMEONE ? THE CONSCIENCE IS A
TOOL USED BY GOD TO ALERT YOU AS TO WHEN YOU HAVE BROKEN THE LAW OF GOD KNOWN AS LOVE .
THE CONSCIENCE IS AS A ALARM SYSTEM THAT INTENSIFIES ONES EMOTIONS WARNING YOU WHEN YOUR
ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING AGAINST THAT BEHAVIOR KNOWN AS LOVE . IF YOU HAVE A BAD ATTITUDE OR
HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG TOWARD SOMEONE AND HAVE NOT ASKED FORGIVENESS YOUR CONSCIENCE WILL BRING
TO YOUR MIND AGAIN AND AGAIN THE PERSON AND THE EVENT . WHEN YOU HAVE FORGIVEN THEY WILL NO LONGER KEEP
POPPING UP INTO YOUR MIND AND THE PAIN WILL NO LONGER BE THERE WHEN IT IS BROUGHT UP .
EPHESIANS 4;32 AND 5;1-2
AND BE YE KIND ONE TO ANOTHER , TENDERHEARTED ,
FORGIVING ONE ANOTHER , EVEN AS GOD FOR CHRIST'S SAKE HAS
FORGIVEN YOU.
 THE MOTIVE OF OUR FORGIVENESS IS TO BE THE EXAMPLE OF GOD'S LOVE EXPRESSEDTO US BY HIS SON
JESUS CHRIST UPON THE CROSS OF CALVARY WHERE HE DIED FOR THE SINS OR DISOBEDIENCE OF THE WORLD THAT IF
ACCEPTED BY EACH PERSON AS A GIFT FROM GOD THEY WILL BE FORGIVEN AND GIVEN ETERNAL LIFE . AS CHRIST DIED FOR
AND TO THE SINS OR DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOR OF OTHERS SO ARE WE TO DIE TO THE OFFENCES AND WRONGS DONE
AGAINST US AND FORGIVE OUR OFFENDERS. LET OUR FORGIVENESS BE UNCONDITIONAL TOWARD OUR OFFENDERS EVEN
BEFORE THEY ASK IT OF US WE ARE TO FORGIVE AND THERE IS TO BE NO REQUIREMENTS IN ORDER TO ACQUIRE OUR
FORGIVENESS, BUT IT IS TO BE FREELY GIVEN AS IT IS FREELY GIVEN TO US BY GOD
.   
BEFORE WE CONTINUE TO LOOK AT THE NEXT BEHAVIOR OF OUR ACTS OF DISOBEDIENCE TOWARD GOD AND OTHERS, LET US
EXAMINE THE LIFE OR BEHAVIOR OF OUR  SELFISHNESS . A PERSON WHO IS SELFISH LIVES FOR THEIR OWN EXPECTATIONS AND
GOALS SUCH A PERSON IS EASILY ANGERED AND IS USUALY DISPLAYED IN FUSSING , FIGHTING , NAGGING , COMPLAINING , AND  
CONDEMNING OR CRITICIZING  THOSE WHO HINDER THEIR RACE TO ACQUIRE THEIR SELFISH NEEDS . THIS ANGER IS ALSO
DISPLAYED NOT ONLY TOWARDS PEOPLE BUT ALSO TOWARDS CIRCUMSTANCES THAT PREVENT THEM FROM REACHING THEIR
SELFISH GOALS WHEN THINGS DO NOT GO AS THEY HAD PLANNED. THIS ANGER IS A TOOL OF DEFENCE AS WELL AS A TOOL TO
EXPRESS ONES DISPLEASURE OF ANY INTERFERENCE IN REACHING THEIR EXPECTATIONS . THE PRODUCT OF THIS ANGER IS A  
LACK OF GENTLENESS DISPLAYED IN ONES SPEECH AND IN ONES ACTIONS TOWARD THEIR OFFENDER AND THE  CIRCUMS-
TANCES THAT INTERFERE WITH THE REACHING OF THEIR OWN NEEDS . SELFISHNESS CREATES IN US A VERY INSECURE LIFE NOT
HAVING THE SURETY THAT ONE WILL ACQUIRE THEIR GOALS . A PERSON WHO PRACTICES SELFISHNESS ALSO HAS NO TIME TO
EXCERCISE ANY ACT OF KINDNESS TOWARD ANY ONE . ALL HIS TIME AND ENERGIES ARE INVESTED IN ACCOMPLISHING HIS OWN
GOALS AND FULLFILLING HIS OWN NEEDS . HIS WORKS ARE WORKS OF GOSSIP , SLANDER , LIEING , CHEATING , AND HURTING
OTHERS TO GET WHAT THEY WANT. THEN LEAST BUT NOT LAST A SELFISH PERSON FINDS IT HARD TO FORGIVE THOSE WHO
HINDER THEM FROM GETTING THEIR WAY
. TO REFRESH YOUR MIND ABOUT NON-FORGIVENESS RE-READ THE ARTICLE ABOVE
ABOUT RECORD KEEPING .
JAMES 1;4 BUT LET PATIENCE HAVE HER PERFECT WORK , THAT YOU MAY BE PERFECT
COMPLETE AND ENTIRE
WHOLE IN EVERY WAY , WANTING NOTHING BEING CONTENT OR SATISFIED .
BEING WANTING IS THE VERY FOUNDATION OF A , SINNER , OR A  PERSON WHO IS SELFISH PRODUCING WITHIN THEM A NON-
PATIENT BEHAVIOR . A PERSON WHO IS NON-PATIENT FEELS THAT THEY ARE IN NEED OF SOMETHING AND FIND THEMSELVES
IN A DEMANDING AND HASTY BEHAVIOR TO ACQUIRE THAT WHICH MAKES THEM FEEL INCOMPLETE . BUT AS THE VERSE SAYS IN
JAMES 1;4 LET A BEHAVIOR OF BEING CONTENT AND SATISFIED BE FOUND IN YOU TOWARDS ALL EVENTS OR CIRCUMSTANCES
AND WITH ALL PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE , AND NOT A BEHAVIOR OF DISATISFACTION
PHILIPPIANS 4;11-12 NOT THAT I SPEAK IN
RESPECT OF WANT ; FOR I HAVE LEARNED , IN WHATSOEVER STATE I AM , TO BE CONTENT . I KNOW BOTH HOW TO BE HUMBLE ,
AND I KNOW HOW TO BE THANKFUL WHEN I HAVE PLENTY: EVERY WHERE AND IN ALL THINGS I AM INSTRUCTED BOTH TO BE
SATISFIED AND TO BE IN NEED .
NON-PATIENCE CAUSES YOU TO EXPERIENCE WITHIN YOU A FEELING OF BEING RUSHED OR
HAVING A SENCE OF BEING IN A HURRY , FOR EXAMPLE HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A CHECK OUT LINE IN A GROCERY STORE AND
FOR NO REASON YOU BEGIN TO FEEL LIKE THE LINE ISN'T MOVING FAST ENOUGH AND AS YOU LOOK AT THE BASKET OF THE
PERSON IN FRONT OF YOU ,  THAT MAKES YOU FEEL EVEN THAT MUCH MORE OF A  REASON TO BE IN A HURRY . YOU THEN BEGIN
TO FEEL INCOMPLETE AND IN NEED OF WANTING TO ACQUIRE A FASTER LINE AND SO YOUR EYES BEGIN TO ROAM THE STORE
FOR A SHORTER AND MUCH FASTER LINE BY NOW YOU ARE FEELING IRRITABLE AND READY TO SNAP AT SOME ONE . THEN YOU
SPOT THAT PERFECT LINE FOUR CHECKERS DOWN , YOU BREAK LINE AND MAKE A MAD DASH TO ACQUIRE YOUR NEW STATUS IN
ORDER TO FULFILL YOUR BEHAVIOR OF NON- PATIENCE AND YOUR HURRIED DISATISFACTION WHEN TWO OTHER PEOPLE REACH
THE LINE BEFORE YOU DO . NOW YOUR ANGRY AND YOUR ABOUT TO BOIL IF ONLY YOU WOULD HAVE STAYED WHERE YOU WERE .
IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER IN CHRIST , THE NEXT TIME THAT HAPPENS  AND YOU EXPERIENCE THAT FEELING OF BEING RUSHED AND
DISATISFIED ALLOW GOD TO USE THAT EXPERIENCE TO EXPOSE TO YOU THAT YOU ARE NON-PATIENT AND THEN TURN THAT
EXPERIENCE AROUND AND BE CONTENT WITH YOUR  SITUATION . NON-PATIENCE IS NEVER SATISFIED WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE
BEING DONE AND HOW FAST, THIS USUALY LEADS TO ANGER AND A FIGHT .
              
IN CIRCUMSTANCES
HOW ABOUT THE CIRCUMSTANCES THAT TAKE PLACE WHILE ON THE WAY TO WORK . IT IS A  COOL MORNING THE TRAFFIC IS
MOVING FREELY , AS YOU JUST PASSED YOUR LAST CHANCE TO EXIT THE FREEWAY , WHEN YOU DESIDE TO LOOK AHEAD ONLY
TO SEE AN OCEAN OF RED TAIL LIGHTS NO LONGER FREELY MOVING BUT HAVING COME TO A SLOW CRAWL . AS YOU SIT IN
TRAFFIC , REGULARLY APPLYING YOUR FOOT ONCE TO THE BRAKE PEDAL AND THEN TO THE GAS PEDAL ONLY MOVING ABOUT
TWO FEET , YOU CATCH A GLIMPSE AT THE CLOCK RADIO ONLY TO SEE THE TIME TICKING AWAY AND WITH EVERY TICK
MAKING YOU LATTER AND LATTER FOR THAT BUISNESS MEETING AT WORK . THEN IT HAPPENS THAT EMOTION OF FEAR SLIPS
UPON YOU AND NOW YOU FEEL THAT SINCE OF BEING RUSHED AND IN A HURRY FINDING YOURSELF WANTING FOR BETTER
CIRCUMSTANCES . ANGER IS NOW SETTING IN AS THE TIME SLIPS AWAY AND WITH EVERY GLIMPSE OF THAT MASS SCENERY OF
RED TAIL LIGHTS COVERING THE FREEWAY . YOUR MIND FEELS PRESSURED AS YOU AWAIT YOUR FREEDOM FROM CIRCUM-
STANCES  THAT YOU CANNOT CHANGE . FINNALY COMMING TO THE CAUSE OF THE TRAFFIC JAM YOU FIND NO TIME TO HAVE A
THOUGHT OF CONCERN FOR THOSE IN THE ACCIDENT AS YOU PASS IT , AS YOUR SELFISHNESS OVER YOU OWN CIRCUM-
STANCES IS ALL YOU HAVE TIME FOR . THAT EMOTION OF BEING IN A RUSH IS NOW SET FREE AS SOON AS YOU PASSED BY THE
ACCIDENT ,  WITH THE RELEASE OF FREEDOM YOUR FOOT FINDS THE GAS PEDDLE WITH ONLY ONE THOUGHT IN MIND , AND
THAT IS TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME . YOUR MIND IS IN A DAZE AS YOU GO SPEEDING DOWN THE FREEWAY UNTIL SOMETHING
HAPPENS THAT AWAKENS YOU AND THAT IS THAT ALL SO FAMILIAR BLINKING OF THOSE RED AND BLUE FLASHING
LIGHTS.                                                                                    
WHEN WE OFTEN FIND OURSELFS TO BE NON-PATIENT DURING THE TIME OF CIRCU-
MSTANCES WE FIND OURSELFS TO BE EXPERIENCING THE EMOTION OF BEING RUSH-
ED OR IN A HURRY AND NOT BEING CONTENT WITH THE WAY THINGS ARE WORKING
THEIR SELVES OUT , THEREFORE PUTTING US INTO A BEHAVIOR OF RESENTMENT
AND ANGER . YOU THEN DETERMINE TO MAKE A DISCISSION BASED UPON YOUR
NON-PATIENCE IN ORDER TO SPEED THINGS UP . WE MOST ALWAYS MAKE THE WRO-
NG DISCISSIONS AND SUFFER FOR THOSE DISCISSION BASED UPON OUR
DISCON-          
TENTMENT OF NOT BEING PATIENT OR NOT WANTING . ( NON-PATIENCE SHOWS THE INTENSITY OR THE DEGREE OF OUR
SELFISHNESS IN ACHEIVIVG WHAT WE WANT , WHEN WE WANT IT , AND HOW FAST IT SHOULD BE DONE . ) THE RESULT OF MAK-
ING DISCISSIONS TO SPEED THINGS UP , BY TAKING CONTROL OF MATTERS INTO OUR OWN HANDS , NEVER PRODUCE THE SAME
RESULTS IN COMPARISON TO ALLOWING MATTERS TO TAKE PLACE NATURALY AS THEY WERE BEFORE YOU INTERFERRED
AND SOMETIMES THE RESULTS LEAVE US WITH LIFE-TIME SCARS . EXAMPLE : YOUR SITTING AT YOUR DRIVEWAY IN YOUR CAR
TRYING TO PULL OUT ONTO THE HIGHWAY, YOUR NOT IN ANY HURRAY YOU HAVE NO DEADLINES TO TRY AND MEET FOR YOU
WERE JUST CAUSUALLY GOING TO THE STORE TO GET THE SUNDAY PAPPER . BUT THE TRAFFIC WAS KING OF BUSY AND AS YOU
SAT THERE WAITING YOUR TURN TO GET ONTO THE HIGHWAY IT HAPPENED YOU BEGAN TO FEEL THAT FEAR ALONG WITH THAT
EMOTIONAL FEELING OF BEING RUSHED OR IN A HURRY AND FOR NO REASON . AS YOU SIT WAITING FIVE CARS HAVE ALREADY
PASSED BY WITH NO CHANCE OF GETTING ON THE FREEWAY , BUT THEN YOU SEE WHAT MIGHT BE A CHANCE TO BREAK ONTO
THE ROAD , AT THAT TIME YOU HEAR A VOICE SPEAK TO YOU TELLING TO GO FOR IT , AND YET YOU WERE'T SURE IF IT WAS THE
RIGHT TIME , BUT THEN YOU DESCIDE TO GO FOR IT AND YOU PUSH THE GAS PEDDLE ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR GUESS WHAT
YOU SHOULD HAVE WAITED FOR NOW THE AMBULANCE IS ESCORTING YOU TO THE HOSPITAL . YOU SHOULD HAVE WAITED AND
YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE PATIENT. WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT NON-PATIENCE DURING THE TIMES DEALING WITH
CIRCUMSTANCES , BUT WHAT ABOUT WHEN PEOPLE ARE INVOLVED . WELL , OUR BEHAVIOR IS THE SAME EXCEPT INSTEAD OF
TAKING OUT OUR FRUSTRATION UPON THE CIRCUMSTANCES WE VENT OUR RAGE , ANGER AND IRRATATION TOWARDS THOSE
INVOLVED IN THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF OUR NON-PATIENCE . NON-PATIENCE IS A TOOL THAT USUALLY SENDS US INTO A STATE
OF ARGUEING OR FIGHTING WITH OUR LOVED ONES AND BRINGING BITTERNESS AND HATRED TOWARDS ONE ANOTHER .
HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU STRUCK OUT TOWARDS A LOVED ONE ; A HUSBAND , WIFE , FRIEND , OR EVEN YOUR OWN CHILDREN
FOR LACK OF PATIENCE .
        
                                                          LOVE ENVIETH NOT
                                                                                                       1st CORINTHIANS , 13:4
THE NEXT SIN OR DISOBEDIENT ACT THAT WE PERFORM IN OUR DAILY LIVES AGAINST THE LAW OF GOD WHICH IS THE BEHAVIOR
KNOWN AS LOVE , IS THE BEHAVIOR KNOWN AS ENVY WHICH CARRIES IN  IT'S MEANING IN THE WORD JEALOUSY
. TO UNDERST-
AND THE MEANING OF THE WORD ENVY WE MUST DEFINE THE WORD JEALOUSY . JEALOUSY IS THE FEAR OF BEING REPLACED OR THE
FEAR OF LOOSING WHICH WE EXPERIENCE WITHIN THREE AREAS OF OUR LIVES , (1) IS IN THE AREA OF POSSESSIVENESS
PERTAINING TO MATERIAL THINGS AND ALSO WITH , IDEALS, JOBS , ETC....( 2ND ) IN THE AREA OF OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE
PEOPLE IN OUR LIVES BUT NOT JUST LIMITED TO HUSBAND AND WIFE OR TO GIRL FRIEND AND BOY FRIEND BUT ALSO TO OUR
EMPLOYERS, FRIENDS , ENEMIES , ETC... (3RD) IS IN THE AREA OF POSITIONS AND IN THE MAINTAINING OF THOSE POSITIONS WHICH
WE HAVE ACQUIRED . IN ALL THREE AREAS THIS FEAR OF LOSS AND THIEr FEAR OF REPLACEMENT CREATES IN US A BEHAVIOR OF
CRUEL COMPETITION TOWARDS THOSE WHO BECOME OUR COMPETITORS ; STRIVING FOR THE SAME THING AS ANOTHER; IN TRYING
TO KEEP OR ACQUIRE OUR GOAL IN ONE OR ALL THREE OF THESE AREAS . THIS FEAR OF LOSS OR THAT FEAR OF BEING REPLACED
CREATES IN US A  CRUEL COMPETITIVENESS WHICH IN TURN PRODUCES OTHER SINS OR DISOBEDIENT
BEHAVIOR SUCH AS ANGER , IRRITABILITY , AND A DEFENSIVE STRIKING OUT TOWARD OTHERS BY CRUEL CRITICISM  AND A SEVERE
GOSSIPING OF THOSE WHO OPPOSE US , OFTEN TIMES DESTROYING THEIR REPUTATION IN THE EYES OF OTHERS NO MATTER THE
COST IN ORDER TO KEEP OR TO ACQUIRE THE OBJECT OF OUR FEAR OR JEALOUSY . THIS FEAR OF LOSS OR OF BEING REPLACED ALSO
CREATES WITHIN US A LIFE OF CONSTANT SUSPICION TOWARD THOSE AROUND US OR A LIFE OF NON-TRUST , ALWAYS QUESTIONING
THE MOTIVES OF THOSE AROUND US AND AUTOMATICALLY DECLARING THEM GUILTY WITHOUT ANY DIRECT EVIDENCE . MANY OF US
ONLY THINK OF JEALOUSY BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE AND ONLY WHEN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES ARISE , BUT MANY OF US LIVE MOST
OF OUR LIVES WITH THIS FEAR CONSTANTLY ALONG WITH THE SUSPICION AND NON-TRUST OF OTHERS ALMOST DAILY . THIS KIND
OF PERSON IS LIVING A LIFE MOST MISERABLE . SUCH A PERSON IS LIVING A LIFE OF CONSTANT FEAR AND SUSPICION ALWAYS
IRRITABLE AND FIGHTING WITH OTHERS , FOR THEY CAN NEVER ALLOW THEMSELVES TO PUT DOWN THEIR GUARD UNLESS ANOTHER
COME AND ROB THEM OF THE OBJECT OF THEIR JEALOUSY . EXAMPLE: YOU ARE IN A BUSINESS MEETING AND YOU BRING UP AN IDEAL
AS HOW TO BETTER PERFORM A SPECIFIC JOB THAT IS BEING PERFORMED THERE ON THE JOB SITE , YOUR IDEAL WAS DISCUSSED AND
AGREED UPON FOR IT TO BE ASSIGNED TO A COMMITTEE TO BE DONE . BUT THEN ANOTHER VOICE ECHO'S THE MEETING AND
SOMEONE ELSE APPROACHES THE PROBLEM FROM ANOTHER DIRECTION , AT THAT MOMENT WHEN YOU HEARD THAT OTHER VOICE A
TINGE OF FEAR CAME OVER YOU ,THE FEAR THAT YOUR IDEAL MAY BE REPLACED, THEN ANGER BEGINS TO ARISE WITHIN YOU AND YOU
ARE NOW READY TO DEFEND AND PROTECT YOUR IDEAL . THIS FEAR IS CALLED JEALOUSY , MANY OF US EXPERIENCE IT MANY TIMES
IN OUR LIVES . DO YOU OBSERVE THE SELFISHNESS , NOT WILLING TO HEAR ANOTHER IDEAL AND COMPARE AND CHOOSE THE ONE
BEST FOR THE COMPANY . EXAMPLE : YOUR THE SUPERVISOR OF A SHOP AND YOU HAVE A FOREMAN WORKING UNDER YOU , WHEN
ONE MORNING YOU ENTER THE SHOP AND SPOT THE OWNER OF THE COMPANY TALKING WITH YOUR FOREMAN . THEN OUT OF NO
WHERE A FEAR COMES OVER YOU WITH A SENSE OF SUSPICIOUSNESS AS TO WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT , AND IF THEY ARE
TALKING ABOUT YOUR ABILITY IN RUNNING THE SHOP . AT THIS TIME ALL KINDS OF THOUGHTS COME RUSHING INTO YOUR MIND
BECOMING SUSPICIOUS OF THEM BOTH CONSPIRING AGAINST YOU , ONLY TO FIND OUT AT A LATER DATE THAT THEY WERE ONLY
EXCHANGING PERSONAL HUNTING EXPERIENCES WITH EACH OTHER AND THAT IT HAD NOTHING TO DO ABOUT YOU .
EXAMPLE: AS YOU WERE STROLLING THROUGH THE WAL - MART STORE YOU RAISED YOUR HEAD ONLY TO SPOT YOUR HUSBAND
TALKING AND LAUGHING WITH ANOTHER WOMAN IN A MANNER THAT SEEMED TO YOU TO BE JUST ALL TO FRIENDLY . ALL OF A
SUDDEN JUST AS IN THE LAST TWO EXAMPLES THAT SENSE OF FEAR OF BEING REPLACED BY ANOTHER WOMAN AND THAT YOU ARE
GOING TO LOOSE HIM COMES OVER YOU . THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL KINDS OF THOUGHTS BEGIN TO RACE THROUGH YOUR MIND
AS YOU BECOME SUSPICIOUS OF ALL THAT HE MAY DO AND WHERE HE MAY GO . WHEN HE COMES IN LATE FROM WORK YOU BEGIN TO
IMAGINE THE TWO OF THEM MEETING TOGETHER SOMEWHERE AND SPENDING TIME WITH ONE ANOTHER .
AS THIS FEAR CONTINUES IT EATS AT YOU AS TO HOW OLD SHE MAY BE AND AS TO WHERE SHE MAY LIVE . YOU ALSO FIND YOURSELF
BEING IRRITATED AND BECOMING ANGRY A LOT EASIER THAN YOU USE TO SNAPPING AT HIM WITH A HEART OF BITTERNESS . THIS
CONTINUES FOR YEARS UNTIL YOU END YOUR MARRIAGE IN DIVORCE , BUT ONLY IF YOU WOULD HAVE ARRIVED ON THE SCENE A
LITTLE EARLIER YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT YOUR HUSBAND HAD ACCIDENTALLY BUMPED SHOPPING CARTS COMING AROUND THE
CORNER AND AFTERWARDS EXCHANGING WORDS AND LAUGHING AT THE SITUATION .
 
HAVE YOU EVER FELT THAT HURRIED , RUSHED FEELING CREEP UP IN
YOUR STOMACH THAT FEELING IS CALLED NON-PATIENCE.
IT'S A SIN
HAVE YOU EVER BROUHGT UP A PERSONS PAST TO THEM BECAUSE YOU CAN'T FORGIVE .
WHAT THEY HAD DONE.
IT'S A SIN
HAVE YOU EVER FELT THAT FEAR OF LOSS OR OF  REPLACEMENT

IT'S A SIN
IN CIRCUMSTANCES
SO FAR WE HAVE SEEN THE TRUE BEHAVIOR OF THE HUMAN RACE AND HOW SINFUL OR
DISOBEDIENT TO GOD'S NATURE OF LOVE WE REALY ARE . WE TRUELY ARE A CREATION IN NEED
OF HELP. BUT LET US LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR SELFS BY EXAMINING THE NEXT SINFUL OR
DISOBEINT BEHAVIOR THAT WE ALL POSSESS .
1ST CORINTHIANS 13; 4 CHARITY (OR LOVE )
VAUNTETH ( TO BRAGG OR BOAST ) NOT ITSELF .
TO UNDERSTAND THIS VERSE WE MUST FIRST
DEFINE THE WORD VAUNTETH , WHICH ACCORDING TO THE GREEK AND ENGLISH DICTIONARY
IT REFERS TO ONE WHO BRAGGS OR BOAST ABOUT ONE'S OWN GOODNESS , ACOMPLISHMENTS
OR TO ONE WHO IS SEEKING SELF RECOGNITION BY BRINGING THE ATTENTION TO ONE'S SELF
BY MANY DEFFERENT METHODS . THIS VERSE IS MAKING A STATEMENT THAT THOSE WHO
PRACTISE LIVING GOD'S CHARACTER OTHERWISE KNOWN AS LOVE WILL NOT BE ONE WHO IS
LIVING THEIR LIFE IN BOASTING , BRAGGING ABOUT THEIRSELVES NOR SEEKING TO GAIN THE
ATTENTION OF OTHERS . SUCH A PERSON IS ONE WHO ALWAYS SEEMS TO FIND DELIGHT IN  
HAVING TO BE IN THE LIMELIGHT RECEIVING PRAISE AND ATTENTION AND IS ALWAYS EITHER
BOLDLY OR TIMIDLY HINTING TO OTHERS ABOUT ALL THAT THEY DO OR HAVE DONE TO
OTHERS . IF THEY ARE NOT LIFTED UP BEFORE OTHERS AND ARE NEGLECTED IN BEING
RECOGNIZED THEY WILL FREELY PROVIDE YOU WITH A LIST OF ALL THEIR ACOMPLISHMENTS IN
ORDER TO MAKE YOU AWARE OF ALL THEY DO OR HAVE DONE IN ORDER THAT THEIR EGO MAY
BE FEED . THIS BEHAVIOR LIKE ALL OTHERS THAT WE HAVE STUDIED AND EXPOSED HAS IT'S
ORIGIN FROM THE SAME PLACE AS ANGER , UNGIVENESS , NON-PATIENCE , JEALOUSY , NON-
GENTLENESS , NON-KINDNESS , AND THE OTHERS WHICH WOULD BE SELFISFNESS . SUCH
PERSONS LIVE ONLY TO EXPERIENCE THAT DELIGHTED EMOTION THAT COMES WITH BEING
LIFTED UP BEFORE OTHERS OR BRAGGED UPON . LIKE ALL OTHER SELFISH BEHAVIOR THE
ATTENTION IS FOCUSED UPON THIER SELVES AND ARE NOT AWARE OF THE NEEDS OF OTHERS
AROUND THEM . BOASTERS ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF ANY ONE
ELSE OTHER THAN THEIR OWN , IN FACT THEY SEE OTHERS WHO RECEIVE PRAISE  AS NO MORE
THAN A THREAT TO THIER OWN EGO . SUCH A SELFISH PERSON IS VERY DEFENSIVE AND WILL
SHOW IRRITATION AND ANGER WHEN OTHERS RECIEVE CREDIT FOR THEIR WORK OR IDEALS .
THIS BEHAVIOR DESIRING TO BE EXHALTED OR BEING PRAISED AS ALL OTHER SELFISH BEH-
VIORS THAT WE HAVE STUDIED WILL LEAD ONE INTO OTHER SINFUL OR DISOBEDIENT BEH-
AVIORS SUCH AS ANGER , JEALOUSY , NON-GENTLENESS , NON-PATIENCE , UNFORGIVENESS ,
FIGHTING , NON-KINDNESS , SLANDER , AND GOSSIPING , TOWARD OTHERS AS A METHOD OF
DEFENSE TO PROTECT THIER EGO . SUCH A PERSON MAY ALSO DO ALL THAT HE CAN IN ORDER
TO SHOW UP THE OTHER PERSON IN ORDER TO DIRECT THE PRAISE AND ATTENTION BACK
TOWARD THIERSELVES BY THE USE OF CERTAIN TOOLS KNOWN AS GOSSIP AND SLANDER IN
ORDER TO SPREAD LIES AND EVEN THE TRUTH IN ORDER TO DESTROY THE REPUTATION ,
IDEALS , AND OTHERS ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN ORDER TO REGAIN THIER  PETESTAL .
         
BRAGGING AND BOASTING ABOUT ONES SELF AND SEEKING TO LIVE
FOR THAT
FEELING OF BEING EXALTED ABOVE OTHERS

IT IS A SIN
LOVE DOES NOT FOCUS ON HOW TO BRING HARM TO OTHERS BUT INSTEAD IT WILL FOCUS ON
HOW TO HELP OTHERS . TRUE LOVE IS SO FOCUSED UPON OTHERS NEEDS AND HOW TO HELP
MAKE THEM SUCCESSFUL THAT THEY HAVE NO TIME TO THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES , AND IS
MORE FOCUSED ON SERVING OTHERS THAN THEY ARE ABOUT BEING SERVED . TRUE LOVE IS
ALSO MORE FOCUSED ON GIVING RATHER THAN RECEIVING AND FINDS GREAT PLEASURE IN
EXALTING OTHERS THAN IT DOES TO BE EXALTED . NOW ASK YOURSELF THE QUESTION WHAT
IS YOUR LIFE SO FOCUSED ON ? IS IT FOCUSED ON WHAT LIFE CAN GIVE TO YOU OR WHAT YOU
CAN GIVE TO THE LIVES OF OTHERS ? IS YOUR LIFE ALL ABOUT YOU OR IS IT ALL ABOUT THE
LIFES OF OTHERS .   
IN CIRCUMSTANCES
LOVE IS TEMPERATE , THE WORD TEMPERATE MEANS  TO PRACTICE SELF-CONTROL , ANOTHER
WORD THAT DEFINES TEMPERATE WOULD ALSO BE THE WORD DISCIPLINE , IN SHORT A PERSON
WHO LIVES A LIFE OF LOVING OTHERS LIVES A LIFE OF DISCIPLINE OR OF SELF-CONTROL . SUCH
A PERSON WHO DOES NOT LIVE A SELF-CONTROLLED LIFE DOES NOT CARE FOR OTHERS BUT  AS
ALL OTHER DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIORS OPPOSITE OF THAT BEHAVIOR KNOWN AS LOVE IS AN
EXPRESSION OF OUR SELFISHNESS THAT LIVES WITHIN EVERY PERSON BIRTHED INTO THIS
WORLD OTHER THAN CHRIST . WE OFTEN THINK OF A PERSON HAVING SELF-CONTROL WHEN     
ONE IS ABLE TO NOT ALLOW HIMSELF TO BECOME EASILY ANGERED TOWARDS OTHERS IN TIMES OF CIRCUMSTANCES AND IN OUR
RELATIONSHIPS WITH OTHERS . OUR UNCONTROLLED TEMPER IS ONLY EVIDENCE OF OUR LACK OF SELF-CONTROL IN OTHER
AREAS OF OUR LIVES WHERE AND WHEN WE DO NOT GET OUR WAY DURING CERTAIN SITUATIONS OF OUR LIVES . ALL THOUGH OUR
TEMPERAMENT IS AN AREA WHERE WE DO NEED TO PRACTICE SELF-CONTROL OR DISCIPLINE , YET IT IS ONLY THE RESULT AND
EVIDENCE OF AN AREA WHERE WE DID NOT PRACTICE SELF-CONTROL OUT OF OUR OWN SELFISH DESIRES . SUCH AS IN THE AREA
OF ADDICTIONS SUCH AS WITH ALCOHOL , A PERSON WHO HAS NO CONTROL OVER HIS DESIRE TO DRINK ALCOHOL WILL BECOME
ANGRY IF HE IS UNABLE TO NO LONGER TO FEED HIS ADDICTION , NOTICE THE ANGER IS ONLY THE RESULT OF AN AREA WHERE
SELF-CONTROL IS NOT PRACTICED . NOTICE ALSO IN THE AREA OF ADDICTIONS THAT THE OBJECT OF HIS ADDICTION HAS
CONTROL OF HIM CONTROLLING HIS THOUGHTS , DESIRES , AND HIS EMOTIONS THE ONE WHO HAS NO SELF-CONTROL IS ONLY A
PUPPET ON THE STRINGS OF THE OBJECT OF HIS ADDICTION .     
A PERSON WHO DOES NOT HAVE SELF-CONTROL IS A PERSON WHO HAS BEEN TRICKED INTO SURRENDERING THEIR ABILITY OF
SELF-CONTROL OVER TO THE VERY OBJECT OF THEIR SELFISH WANTS , WHICH IS THE VERY OBJECT THAT BECOMES THE OBJECT
OF THEIR ADDICTION . AT THE TIME OF SURRENDER THEY TRULY BELIEVE THEY WILL FIND GREAT JOY AND HAPPINESS, BUT ONLY
COMING TO THE AWARENESS IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP THAT THE VERY OBJECT OF THEIR SELFISHNESS NOW POSSESS COMPLETE
CONTROL OVER THEM. FOR THEY DID NOT REALIZE THAT BY GIVING THIS ABILITY CALLED SELF-CONTROL OVER TO ANOTHER
THAT THEY WOULD BECOME A SLAVE . AT THE MOMENT OF THEIR SURRENDER THEY HAD NO WAY OF KNOWING THAT , THAT
SMALL SELFISHNESS DESIRE WOULD BECOME A STRONG UNCONTROLLABLE DESIRE THAT WOULD LEAD THEM INTO A LIFE  OF
ENSLAVEMENT AND INTO A LIFE OF NOT BEING ABLE TO SAY NO . THEY ALSO FIND THAT THE OBJECT OF THEIR ADDICTION
BEGIN TO USE THEIR OWN MIND AGAINST THEM TAKING COMPLETE CONTROL OVER THE ABILITY OF THE MIND TO DESIRE OR
WANT IN ORDER TO USE YOU AS A SLAVE TO GET WHAT IT DESIRES TO HAVE , IN RETURN YOU FIND THAT YOUR ABILITY TO
RESIST IS NO MATCH FOR THE DESIRE . YOUR STRENGTH BECOMES WEAKER AND WEAKER WITH EACH EXPERIENCE UNTIL THE
OBJECT OF YOUR ADDICTION BECOMES THE NUMBER ONE OBJECT OF YOUR LIFE AND ALL OTHER RELATIONSHIPS SUFFER AND
FALL TO THE REAR . YOUR BEHAVIOR TOWARDS OTHERS CHANGE YOUR CLOSE FRIENDS ARE NO LONGER NOR DO YOU ANY
LONGER SEEK THEIR COMPANY , BUT INSTEAD NEW FRIENDS APPEAR AND BECOME A PART OF YOUR LIFE , THEY ARE THOSE WITH
LIKE ADDICTION AS WELL AS THOSE WHO ARE ABLE TO HELP YOU FEED YOUR NEW MASTER , YOUR ADDICTION . YOU BECOME
FOREIGN AND DISTANT TO THE ONES WHO YOU ONCE WERE CLOSE TO BEFORE YOUR ENSLAVEMENT AND IT IS THOSE TO WHOM
AS THEY SEE YOUR PROBLEM THEY ATTEMPT TO REACH OUT IN DESIRE TO HELP YOU , BUT IN YOUR EYES THEY ARE NO LONGER
FRIENDS BUT ENEMIES . IN YOUR RETALIATION AGAINST THEM THAT SINFUL BEHAVIOR BECOMES EVIDENT IN YOUR LIFE
TOWARDS THOSE WHO LOVE YOU , ANGER HATE , BITTERNESS , NON-PATIENCE , NON-GENTLENESS , NON-KINDNESS ,
UNFORGIVNESS , BOASTFUL , GOSSIP , BACKBITING , .......ECT IN SHORT YOU ARE A SELFISH PERSON WITH NO SELF-CONTROL
THINKING ONLY OF YOUR SELF .           
THE PRACTICE OF HAVING NO SELF-CONTROL
IS A
SIN
THE SEED OF
SELFISHNESS
THE ROOTS
OF ANGER
NURTURED AND WATERED
BY UNFORGIVENESS
THE TRUNK OF
HATRED
HATRED BRINGS FORTH THE DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS OR BRANCHES OF BITTERNESS
FIGHTING
SLANDER
GOSSIP
MURDER
THEFT
ADULTERY
A FAMILY TREE IS A DIAGRAM , LIKE THE ONE TO YOUR RIGHT, THAT SHOWS A FAMILY'S ORIGIN OR
BEGINNING BASED UPON THE FIRST MARRIED COUPLE  WHOSE NAMES WOULD BE PLACED IN THE WHITE
CIRCLE FOUND AT THE ROOTS OF THE TREE AT YOUR RIGHT . NEXT THEIR CHILDREN AND THE NAMES OF
WHOM THEY MARRIED WOULD BE WRITTEN IN THE TWO WHITE CIRCLES ABOVE THE FIRST WHITE CIRCLE
FOUND IN THE ROOTS . THEN IF THEY EACH HAD TWO CHILDREN WHO ALSO MARRIED THEIR NAMES
WOULD BE WRITTEN IN THE TWO SPACES ABOVE THEIR PARENTS WHITE CIRCLE , AND ON AN ON IT GOES.
BRANCHING OFF INTO MANY DIFFERENT FAMILY CELLS, THIS IS WHY IT IS CALLED A FAMILY TREE.
NOW IF ANY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY WANTED TO LOOK BACK TO SEE ITS FAMILY BEGINNINGS AND THE
PEOPLE INVOLVED ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS TO GET OUT THE FAMILY TREE AND TRACE IT BACK. WELL
USING THIS SAME CONCEPT OF A FAMILY TREE WE SHALL ALSO MAP OUT A FAMILY TREE OF SIN OR OUR
DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR . YET IN THIS PARTICULAR TREE OUR FOCUS IS ON THE TWO SINS CALLED
HATRED AND BITTERNESS ALTHOUGH WE MAY ALSO DISCOVER ALLOT ABOUT OUR  OTHER DISOBEDIENT
BEHAVIOURS AS WELL . NOW ALL LIVING PLANTS HAVE THEIR BEGINNINGS FROM A THING CALLED A
SEED OR A SEED LIKE MATTER SUCH AS BELOW THE TREE IN THE PICTURE ABOVE, AND FROM SUCH SEEDS COMES FORTH MANY
DIFFERENT FORMS OF LIFE THAT SHALL MAKE UP A TREE , AND ALTHOUGH THE ROOTS , THE BRANCHES , THE TRUNKS , AND THE
LEAVES ARE ALL DIFFERENT YET EACH ONE IS A PART OF WHAT MAKES UP A TREE AND EACH PART HAVING THE SAME SOURCE AS
ITS ORIGIN , THE SEED . SO ALSO WE SHALL SEE THAT EACH ACT OF SIN OR OUR DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR MAY APPEAR TO BE
DIFFERENT IN APPEARANCE YET THEY ARE JOINED TOGETHER BY HAVING THE SAME SOURCE FOR IT'S ORIGIN OR BEGINNING . THE
SEED OR LIFE SOURCE FOR HATRED AND BITTERNESS IS ALSO THE SAME LIFE SOURCE FOR ALL OTHER SIN OR DISOBEDIENT
BEHAVIOURS THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE BEHAVIOUR CALLED LOVE , SUCH AS JEALOUSY , FEAR , FIGHTING , ANGER , UN-
FORGIVENESS , MURDER , THEFT , ADULTERY , FORNICATION , GOSSIP , SLANDER , DISOBEDIENT TO AUTHORITY , DRUNKENNESS ,
VIOLENCE , CURSING , AND ANY OTHER SIN . SO LET US EXPOSE WHAT IS THAT SEED THAT GIVES LIFE TO SO MUCH SIN OR
DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR . IF YOU WILL LOOK AT THE TREE ABOVE , BELOW THE ROOTS YOU WILL FIND A DARK OVAL OBJECT
THAT REPRESENTS A SEED AND THE BOX NEXT TO THE SEED WILL TELL YOU WHAT THAT SEED IS . YES THAT IS RIGHT IT IS CALLED
SELFISHNESS . SELFISHNESS MEANS
CHIEFLY CARING ONLY FOR ONE'S OWN INTEREST , COMFORT , HAPPINESS , WELL BEING ,
AND PLEASURES HAVING NO REGARDS AS TO OTHERS INTEREST , COMFORT , HAPPINESS , WELL BEING , OR PLEASURES .  
   
THE SEED OF
SELFISHNESS
FEAR IS AN EMOTIONAL ALARM THAT WE EXPERIENCE WHEN HARM IS ABOUT TO BE EXPERIENCED IN THE AREAS OF
OUR OWN CARES SUCH AS IN THE AREAS OF OUR OWN INTEREST , OUR OWN COMFORT , OUR OWN HAPPINESS , OUR
OWN WELL BEING , AND OUR OWN PLEASURES . WHEN A PERSON FEELS LIKE HE IS ABOUT TO  BE VIOLATED A STRONG
EMOTION OF BEING AFRAID ARISES IN THE AREA OF ABOUT THE CENTER OF YOUR CHEST . STOP AND EXAMINE
YOURSELF THE NEXT TIME YOU GET READY TO BECOME ANGRY AND SEE IF THAT EMOTION OF FEAR DOES NOT
ARISE AND THEN CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS NOT A SELFISH MOTIVE OF DEFENCE IN ONE OF THOSE AREAS SUCH
AS YOUR INTEREST, COMFORT, HAPPINESS, WELL BEING, OR PLEASURES . EXAMINE YOUR SELF EACH TIME YOU GET READY TO
BECOME ANGRY AND YOU WILL DISCOVER YOUR TRUE MOTIVES AS TO WHY YOU REACT THE WAY YOU DO AND THAT REASON
WILL BE BECAUSE OF YOUR OWN SELFISHNESS AND THAT IT IS THE SEED THAT GIVES LIFE TO OUR SIN OR OUR ANGER,HATE,
FEAR,JEALOUSIES, BITTERNESS, SLANDER, GOSSIP, MURDER, THEFT, ADULTERIES, FORNICATIONS, DRUNKENNESS, FIGHTINGS,
UN- FORGIVENESS, DISOBEDIENT TO AUTHORITY, AND ANY OTHER SIN OR DISOBEDIENCE THAT I HAVE NOT MENTIONED. YES
SELFISHNESS IS THE SEED OR LIFE GIVER TO ALL OUR SINFUL ACTS OR BEHAVIOUR AND FEAR WILL EXPOSE TO YOU WHAT THAT
SELFISH AREA IS . DO NOT BE AFRAID TO EXAMINE YOUR SELF IT IS NEEDFUL IN ORDER TO GET HELP FROM THE ONE WHO LOVES
YOU , JESUS CHRIST .
2ND TIMOTHY 1;7 FOR GOD HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT OF FEAR; BUT OF POWER, AND OF LOVE, AND OF
A SOUND MIND.
  

FEAR CAN BE A SIN
THE NEXT LEVEL TO OUR FAMILY TREE OF SIN CAN BE SEEN BY LOOKING AT THE ROOT SYSTEM OF THE TREE
IN WHICH WILL BE REVEALED THAT THE ROOTS REPRESENTS OUR ANGER. ONCE OUR SELFISH AREAS OF OUR
OWN CARES EITHER APPEAR TO BE VIOLATED OR THAT THEY HAVE BEEN VIOLATED WE THEN WITHIN SECONDS
EXPERIENCE THAT EMOTIONAL FEELING OF BEING AFRAID WARNING US OF A POSSIBLE OR A NOW BEING
VIOLATED EXPERIENCE . WE THEN SHIFT INTO OUR NEXT POSITION KNOWN AS DEFENCE IN ORDER TO WARN
THE VIOLATOR TO BACK OFF OR DO NOT ENTER ANY FURTHER INTO THE AREA OF OUR VIOLATION WITHIN THE
AREAS OF OUR INTEREST , COMFORT, HAPPINESS, WELL BEING,OR PLEASURES OF OUR LIVES .
THIS DEFENSIVE
POSITION IS KNOWN AS ANGER . WE MAY EITHER REACT IN OUR ANGER BY A DISPLAY OF DEFENSIVE WORDS
OR BY A PERFORMANCE OF VIOLENT ACTION , WHICH MAY COME IN MANY DIFFERENT FORMS , ALONG WITH
A LOUD TONE OF VOICE AS A WARNING OF DANGER TOWARD THE VIOLATOR . ANGER IS OFTEN TRIGGERED BY ACTIONS OR WORDS
BY ANOTHER OR BY CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH IS IN OPPOSITION TO THE AREAS OF OUR OWN INTEREST, COMFORT, HAPPINESS, WELL
BEING, OR PLEASURES . ANGER IS A SUDDEN AND SHARP EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION OF DISPLEASURE DISPLAYED BY WORDS OR
ACTION IN ORDER TO BRING OPPOSITION , MISTREATMENT , OR INJURY TO THE PERSON VIOLATING ONES OWN AREA OF SELFISH-
NESS IN ORDER TO CAUSE THEM TO WITH DRAW OR TO BACK OFF FROM THAT AREA .

1ST CORINTHIANS 13 VERSE 5 LOVE THINKETH NO EVIL LET US EXAMINE THIS VERSE BY FIRST DEFINING THE WORD THINK
IN THE GREEK, THIS WORD MEANS MORE THAN JUST TO PONDER OR TO MEDITATE UPON, HERE IT MEANS TO WRITE OR
TO ACCOUNT TO. THIS WORD IS A WORD WHICH IS USED IN THE BIBLE AS REFERRING TO AN ACCOUNTANT OR A BOOK-
KEEPER. A BOOK KEEPER IS ONE WHO KEEPS A WRITTEN RECORD OF ALL TRANSACTIONS THAT TAKES PLACE AND IN
ORDER TO HOLD THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE TRANSACTIONS . IN SHORT THE VERSE IS SIMPLY STATING THAT LOVE DOES
NOT KEEP RECORD OF ALL THE PAST WRONGS PERFORMED AGAINST HIM. SUCH A PERSON WHO PRACTICES RECORD KEEPING IS A
PERSON WHO DOES NOT PRACTICE THE ACT OF FORGIVENESS. THOSE WHO PRACTICE RECORD KEEPING ARE VERY ACCURATE IN
THERE REMEMBRANCE AS TO EVERY DETAIL OF THAT WHICH WAS DONE TO THEM, WHY THEY CAN TELL YOU THE VERY YEAR,
MONTH, WEEK, AND THE VERY DAY YOU OFFENDED THEM. SOME ARE EVEN ABLE TO TELL YOU THE EXACT ROOM FOR WHICH IT
TOOK PLACE IN AND THE EXACT POSITION FOR WHICH YOU WERE STANDING OR SETTING , THE TYPE OF CLOTHING YOU WERE
WEARING AND IT'S COLOR . BOOK KEEPERS ARE ANGRY  PEOPLE WHO STILL BARE THE EMOTIONAL PAIN OF THEIR WOUNDS , SOME
AS LONG AS ONE TO EVEN FIFTY YEARS. BUT THE MEMORY OF IT IS AS FRESH AS IF IT HAD HAPPENED YESTERDAY, THEY CAN EVEN
TELL YOU EVERY WORD THAT WAS SPOKEN, AND THE WOUND AND IT'S INTENSITY OF IT'S PAIN IS AS FRESH AS THE DAY IT WAS
AFFLICTED, FOR THEY NURTURE IT BY RECALLING IT TO THERE MEMORY DAY AFTER DAY KEEPING THE FIRES OF THEIR ANGER
AROUSED. IF YOU WOULD LOOK  AT THE TREE ABOVE YOU WILL FIND A LADY THAT IS IN PROCESS OF WATERING THE TREE , THIS
PROCESS IS KNOWN AS NURTURING OR FEEDING THE TREE IN ORDER THAT IT MAY CONTINUE TO LIVE AND GROW TO BECOME EVEN  
LARGER  . ALL THOUGH HER WORK IS NOT ACTUALLY A FUNCTION OF THE TREE ITSELF WHAT SHE IS DOING IS VERY IMPORTANT TO
KEEP THE TREE ALIVE . LET US LOOK AT ANOTHER EXAMPLE , OFTEN TIMES YOU MAY HEAR A PERSON REFER TO NURTURING A FIRE .
THIS IS REFERRING TO THE ADDING OF WOOD TO THE ALREADY EXISTING FLAMES IN ORDER TO KEEP THE FIRE ALIVE OR NOT  
ALLOWING THE FIRE TO DIE DOWN . SO ALSO IN LIKE MANNER A PERSON WHO IS UNWILLING TO FORGIVE MUST KEEP THEIR ANGER
ALIVE OR INFLAMED BY NOT ALLOWING  TIME TO ROB THEIR MEMORY OF THE OFFENCE OR THE WOUND , OTHER WISE THEIR
MEMORY WILL BECOME OLD AND STALE , SO THEY MUST CONTINUE DAY AFTER DAY TO REVISIT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME DAILY
AND MAYBE EVEN MOMENT BY  MOMENT OF EACH DAY AS LONG AS THEY LIVE WITHIN THE VERY CONFINES OF THEIR OWN
IMAGINATION . WHAT IS THE LIFE SOURCE TO OUR UN FORGIVENESS ? WHAT ELSE OUR SELFISHNESS FOR THE AREAS OF OUR OWN
INTEREST , COMFORT , HAPPINESS , WELL BEING , OR PLEASURES .    
THIS LEADS US INTO OUR NEXT RESPONSE AND A NEW DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOR OR SIN WHICH IS HATE . IF YOU LOOK  AT THE TREE
ABOVE YOU WILL SEE THAT THE TRUNK COMES FORTH FROM THE ROOTS AND IS A MUCH LARGER EXTENSION  OF THE ROOTS . SO
ALSO DOES HATE SPRING FORTH OUT OF OUR ANGER HAVING BEEN INTENSIFIED BY THE WATERING OF UN FORGIVENESS . HATRED IS
A DEEPER AND MORE INTENSIFIED DISLIKE FOR THE VIOLATOR OF OUR OWN INTEREST , COMFORT , PLEASURE , WELL BEING , OR
HAPPINESS THAN THAT OF OUR ANGER . WITH ANGER OUR DISLIKE AND DISPLEASURE IS EXPRESSED IN A  SUDDEN AND SHARP
EMOTIONAL EXPRESSION OF DISPLEASURE DISPLAYED BY WORDS OR ACTION IN ORDER TO BRING OPPOSITION , MISTREATMENT , OR
INJURY TO THE PERSON VIOLATING ONES OWN AREA OF SELFISHNESS IN ORDER TO CAUSE THEM TO WITH DRAW OR TO BACK OFF
FROM THAT AREA . WHERE AS WITH HATE OUR EMOTIONAL DISLIKE AND DISPLEASURE THAT IS DISPLAYED BY OUR WORDS OR
ACTIONS IN ORDER TO BRING OPPOSITION , MISTREATMENT , OR INJURY TO THE VIOLATOR IS NOT JUST SUDDEN ,  BUT IS LONGER
LASTING AND WITH MUCH REPETITION . WITH HATRED ONES INTENTION IS TO BRING TO THE VIOLATOR AS MUCH HURT AND INJURY
AS POSSIBLE AND NOT JUST ONCE BUT AS OFTEN AS IT BRINGS DELIGHT AND  SATISFACTION TO ONES SELF . IN SHORT VENGEANCE
IS THE DESIRE OF THEIR HEARTS .
1ST JOHN 3;15 WHOSOEVER HATETH HIS BROTHER IS A MURDER; AND YOU KNOW THAT NO
MURDERER HAS ETERNAL LIFE ABIDING IN HIM .
HATRED IS
A
SIN
BITTERNESS  IS
A
SIN
WHEN HATE AND UN FORGIVENESS ARE UNITED IT BRINGS FORTH AS AN OFFSPRING OUR NEXT SIN OR DISOBEDIENT BEHAVIOUR WHICH
IS KNOWN AS BITTERNESS . BITTERNESS IS AN ATTITUDE THAT WE EXPRESS TOWARD THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED OUR OWN SELFISH
AREAS OF COMFORT , PLEASURE , INTEREST , WELL BEING AND HAPPINESS . THIS IS THE ATTITUDE THAT A PERSON USES WHILE EXPRES-
SING HIS PAY BACKS OR ACTS OF VENGEANCE EITHER BY TONGUE OR BY ACTIONS TOWARD THOSE TO WHOM HE IS UN WILLING TO
FORGIVE AND VERY WILLING TO HATE . THE WORD BITTER EXPRESSES THE WORD SHARP FOR IT'S MEANING . YOU CAN KNOW THAT YOU
CARRY BITTERNESS TOWARD A PERSON WHEN A PERSON TO WHOM YOU ARE UN WILLING TO FORGIVE BUT VERY WILLING TO HATE
COMES WALKING INTO THE SAME ROOM AND THERE ARISES A VERY SHARP DISLIKE FOR THAT PERSON THAT OVER COMES YOU , WHILE
YOU CAN'T EVEN STAND TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM WITH THEM LET'S SAY TO EVEN HEAR THE SOUND OF THEIR VOICE OR EVEN HEAR
THEIR NAME SPOKEN OF . WHEN THIS PERSON SPEAKS TO YOU YOUR REPLY IS ALWAYS SHORT OR POINTY IN ORDER TO CUT OR BRING
DISCOMFORT TO IT'S VICTIM IN A VERY SMART ALIC MANNER . IF YOU NOTICED I HAVE WRITTEN THE WORD BITTERNESS THREE TIMES
AND EACH TIME IN A DIFFERENT COLOR . EACH COLOR REPRESENTS 3 THINGS YOU WILL FIND IN A PERSON WHO IS BITTER . THE FIRST
COLOR IS RED AND THIS COLOR REPRESENTS THE DEGREE OF ANGER AND HATE OR THE INTENSIFIED DISLIKE THAT ONE CARRIES FOR
THAT PERSON WHO HAS VIOLATED THEIR AREA OF COMFORT , WELL BEING , HAPPINESS , INTEREST , OR PLEASURE . THE SECOND COLOR
IS YELLOW THIS COLOR REPRESENTS THE SHARP EXPRESSIONS ONE DISPLAYS IN SPEECH AND ATTITUDE TOWARDS THE ONE WHO HAS
VIOLATED THEM , VERY MUCH LIKE THAT FACE EXPRESSED AFTER YOU EAT A LEMON .  AND LAST BUT NOT THE LEST THIS BRINGS US TO
THE THIRD COLOR BEING BLUE THIS COLOR REPRESENTS THE COLDNESS THAT COMES BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR VICTIM , NO LONGER IS
THERE A CLOSENESS IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP NOR IS THERE ANY COMMUNICATION , BUT A COLD BRISK BREEZE NOW BLOWS BETWEEN
YOU AND YOUR ONCE FRIEND .
THERE WAS ONCE A YOUNG MAN WHO GREW UP IN A HOME WITH TWO OTHER BROTHERS . THE ONE TO
WHOM I AM SPEAKING WAS THE YOUNGEST OF THE THREE . HE WAS AN AVERAGE CHILD HAVING TO STUDY HARD , SPENDING MANY
HOURS STUDYING AND ONLY ABLE TO CARRY A C AVERAGE THROUGH HIS SCHOOL YEARS . WHERE AS HIS OLDEST BROTHER WAS VERY
SMART WHEN IT CAME TO POSSESSING  BOOK SMARTS AND WENT THROUGH SCHOOL WITH AN
A AVERAGE . HE WAS ALSO VERY
OBEDIENT AND HAD A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR . HOWEVER THE YOUNGEST BOY GREW UP HEARING STATEMENTS FROM TEACHERS AND
PARENTS SUCH AS WHY CAN'T YOU BE LIKE YOUR OLDEST BROTHER , AND ARE YOU AS SMART AS YOUR BROTHER , AND IN MANY OTHER
WAYS HE FELT THE COMPARISON . MANY PARENTS THINK THAT SUCH COMPARISONS WILL ENCOURAGE THE CHILD TO STRIVE TO
IMPROVE HIM SELF , NOT KNOWING THAT IT BUILDS UP A VERY STRONG HATE AND RESENTMENT NOT TOWARDS THE BROTHER BUT
TOWARD THE PARENTS AND ALL OTHERS WHO DARE TO COMPARE HIM WITH HIS BROTHER . NO MATTER HOW HARD HE TRIED TO DO
GOOD NOT ONLY IN SCHOOL BUT IN ALL AREAS IT WAS NEVER GOOD ENOUGH . THIS COMPARISON PRODUCED RESENTMENT AND
HATRED ALONG WITH RETALIATION OFTEN SEEN BY HAVING VERY HEATED FIGHTS WITH HIS FATHER FOR MANY YEARS . A SHARP DISLIKE
OR BITTERNESS GREW AS THE YEARS PASSED AND OFTEN DURING THOSE YEARS HE TRIED TO CONVINCE HIMSELF THAT THE BITTER
FEELINGS HE FELT TOWARDS HIS PARENTS WAS NOT BITTERNESS AT ALL , BECAUSE THEY WERE YOUR PARENTS AND CHILDREN JUST
DON'T HATE THEIR PARENTS . I FINALLY CAME TO CHRIST AND AFTER DOING SO I WENT TO A BILL GOTHARD CHRISTIAN SEMINAR AND
WHEN I HEARD THE SPEAKER TALK ABOUT THE BITTERNESS THAT CAN LIE BETWEEN CHILDREN  AND THEIR PARENTS , I FELT THE
PERSUASION OF THE HOLY GHOST UPON MY CONSCIENCE AND CONFESSED MY GUILT ON THE TELEPHONE TO MY FATHER AND ASKED
FORGIVENESS FOR IT AND ALL THE FIGHTS THAT WE EXPERIENCED THE WEIGHT OF MY GUILT WAS LIFTED AND PEACE FELL UPON US .
WHAT ABOUT IT ARE YOU SMILING AT PEOPLE WITH HATRED HIDDEN DEEP DOWN IN YOUR HEART WHILE YOU CALL THEM FRIENDS , AND
YOU CAN'T STAND TO BE IN THEIR PRESENCE . THATS LIVING A DOUBLE STANDARD LIE . CAN'T SHAKE IT , I HAVE NEWS FOR YOU,  YOU
WANT, IT WILL HAUNT YOU UNTIL THE DAY YOU DECIDE TO GET RIGHT WITH THAT PERSON AND CONFESSING YOUR GUILT OF HATE AND
BITTERNESS . THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL IT BE LIFTED, WHAT ABOUT IT DO IT NOW WHILE IT IS ON YOUR MIND .  
EPHESIANS 4;31 LET ALL
BITTERNESS , AND WRATH , AND ANGER , AND CLAMOUR , AND EVIL SPEAKING , BE PUT AWAY FROM YOU , WITH ALL MALICE .
     
THIS BRINGS US TO OUR FINAL STEP TO OUR FAMILY TREE OF SIN , IN WHICH THERE ARE MANY , THIS FINAL STEP REPRESENTS THE MANY
DIFFERENT BRANCHES THAT SPRING FORTH FROM THE TRUNK ITSELF . THESE DIFFERENT BRANCHES REPRESENT THE MANY DIFFERENT
WAYS WE SEEK VENGEANCE OR PAY BACKS AGAINST THOSE TO WHOM HAVE VIOLATED OUR OWN SELFISH AREAS OF COMFORT , WELL
BEING , INTEREST, HAPPINESS , AND PLEASURES . ONE OF THE BRANCHES IS KNOWN AS SLANDER
, SLANDER MEANS TO DELIBERATELY
SPREAD A FALSE REPORT , BEHIND THE VIOLATORS BACK AND BEHIND CLOSED DOORS, WITH THE INTENT TO RUIN ONE'S REPUTATION .
THIS ACT OF VENGEANCE OR PAY BACK IS OFTEN A LIE BASED UPON PART TRUTH EXAMPLE; THERE WAS A YOUNG PREACHER WHO BROKE
DOWN ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD IN A CERTAIN COMMUNITY AND SO HE APPROACHED THE DOOR TO THE NEAREST HOUSE , SEEKING
THE USE OF A TELEPHONE IN ORDER TO PHONE HIS WIFE TO BRING THE EXTRA CAR IN ORDER TO GET HELP TO REPAIR THE CAR THAT WAS
BROKEN DOWN , AS HE KNOCKED UPON THE DOOR A NICE LOOKING YOUNG LADY WEARING A HALTER TOP CAME TO THE DOOR SEEKING
THE REQUEST OF THE YOUNG PREACHER . THE YOUNG MAN SAW HIS CONDITION AND GAVE THE YOUNG LADY HIS WIFES TELEPHONE
NUMBER IN ORDER TO GET IN TOUCH WITH HIS WIFE FOR HIM WITHOUT ENTERING INTO THE YOUNG LADIES HOME . AS THE YOUNG LADY
RETURNED BACK TO THE DOOR WITH THE RETURNED MESSAGE FROM HIS WIFE THEY EXCHANGED THE PROPER THANK YOU AND YOUR
WELCOME , ABOUT THAT TIME THE YOUNG PREACHER TURNED AN ABOUT FACE WALKING AWAY FROM THE YET OPEN DOOR WITH THE
YOUNG LADY STILL WATCHING THE YOUNG MAN WALK AWAY . AT THIS TIME AN OLDER GENTLEMEN DRIVING BY SPOTTED THE YOUNG
PREACHER STRAIGHTING HIS COAT AND SPOTTING THE YOUNG GIRL IN HER HALTER TOP STILL STANDING AT THE DOOR . THIS OLDER
GENTLEMEN DID NOT CARE FOR THE YOUNG PREACHER AND HIS FIRE AND BRIMSTONE PREACHING METHOD , FOR JUST THE PAST
SUNDAY HIS NAME WAS UP OUT OF THREE OTHERS TO BE VOTED ON TO BE CHOSEN FOR THE FILLING IN OF THE JOB OF BEING THE NEXT
DEACON AT THE CHURCH . NEEDLESS TO SAY HIS NAME WAS NOT CHOSEN OR APPROVED OF BY THE YOUNG PREACHER . AS THE OLDER
MAN DRIVES BY STILL GAZING AT THE YOUNG PREACHER AND HIS YOUNG LADY HIS ANGER AND BITTERNESS TAKE OVER HIS THOUGHTS
AS TO JUST WHAT WAS THE PREACHER DOING COMING OUT OF THAT HOME AS HIS IMAGINATION BEGINS FILLING IN THE ANSWERS TO
HIS QUESTION . HE THEN BEGINS TO WANDER IF THE CHURCH AND THE COMMUNITY KNOW ABOUT THE YOUNG PREACHERS AFFAIRS
WITH THIS LADY , AND OF COURSE HE TAKES ON THE TASK OF INFORMING EVERY ONE ABOUT THE SITUATION .
JAMES 3; 8-9  BUT THE
TONGUE , IS AN UNRULY EVIL FULL OF DEADLY POISON , THEREWITH BLESS WE GOD , EVEN THE FATHER , AND THEREWITH CURSE WE MEN ,
WHICH ARE MADE AFTER THE LIKENESS OF GOD .
THE TONGUE IS AS AN SHARP SWORD AND IT IS THE MAIN DEVICE WE USE IN OUR  
PLANNING OUT OF OUR MANY DIFFERENT METHODS THAT WE USE IN ORDER TO TAKE VENGEANCE AGAINST THOSE WHO HAVE VIOLATED
OUR OWN SELFISH AREAS OF COMFORT , HAPPINESS , WELL BEING , PLEASURE , AND INTEREST . WHEN WE USE OUR TONGUE APPLYING THE
RIGHT AND WELL CHOSEN WORDS TO BRING FORTH OUR PLANNED DESTRUCTION , WE DO SO PURPOSELY IN ORDER TO DRIVE THE PAIN
AND HURT DOWN DEEP HAVING NO CARE ABOUT ANYONE EXCEPT YOUR OWN SELFISH DESIRES . YOU CHOOSE EACH WORD ARTFULLY
AND WITH GREAT CARE , LIKE HAVING PICKED THE RIGHT KNIFE THAT WOULD BRING FORTH THE RIGHT DEGREE OF PAIN YOU DESIRE TO
INFLICT UPON YOUR VICTIM . THIS WEAPON IS NOT DESIGNED TO BRING ANY HARM OR WOUND TOWARDS THE BODY WHAT SO EVER ,
AND IS EVEN SHARPER THAN ANY RAZOR , KNIFE , OR SWORD THAT IT MAY PENETRATE THE BODY WITH OUT ANY HARM IN ORDER TO
INFLICT ITS HURT UPON ONES VERY SOUL ,  OR TO ONES VERY THOUGHTS DESIRES AND EMOTIONS . THE PAIN IS AS THOUGH AS IF YOU
TOOK A DULL KNIFE AND FORCED IT SLOWLY INTO YOUR VICTIM TEARING AWAY THE FLESH OF YOUR ENEMIES AND ITS WOUND IS NOT
VITAL IN ORDER TO BRING A QUICK DEATH TO ITS VICTIM , BUT IS AS A STOMACH WOUND WHICH PROLONGS ITS END TO ITS VICTIM
ALLOWING HIM TO FEEL THE SUFFERING SLOWLY AS THE VICTIM IS GIVEN MUCH TIME TO THINK UPON HIS COMING DEATH . CRUEL IS IT
NOT ? GUILTY AREN'T YOU ? HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU FELT THE PAIN OF HURTING WORDS ? STOP AND THINK ABOUT IT NEXT TIME
BEFORE YOU USE YOUR TONGUE FOR ANYTHING EXCEPT TO BLESS OTHERS WITH . AND YOU SAY YOUR NOT A SINNER AND YET HOW
DARES YOU CALL YOURSELF A GOOD PERSON . THE SLANDERS MOUTH IS EVIL AND VERY CRUEL .
