Those who put themselves in His hands will become perfect, as He is perfect- perfect in love, wisdom, joy, beauty, health, and immortality. The change will not be completed in this life, for death is an important part of the treatment. How far the change will have gone before death in any particular

Jesus Christ did not say, 'Go into the world and tell the world that it is quite right.'
Awake. Love. Think. Speak. Be walking trees. Be talking beasts. Be divine waters.
