I have been sharing your book Identity wars with a number of my friends. Everyone of them have identity issues. Some come from a very abusive background and grew up looking for worth in all the wrong places. Another friend used drugs and attempted suicide and still has some serious concerns. One other has issues with power, position, money, education. Another person who is a Roman Catholic, called me yesterday and told me she was reading the chapters I am translating into Spanish, even though she is not a reader and has no interest in things we believe as Seventh-day Adventists. A young woman who stayed with us a few days has lots of problems as well. I was sharing with her the comparison you made in your book between Lucifer and Absalom, and she was really touched by it.
A masterpiece describing a proved and working formula. The fundamental blueprint and pattern for all life as the Creator in His infinite wisdom had ordained it. The divine pattern of life describes how the relationship between the Father and Son, source and channel sets the benchmark and standard for all other relationship of things created visible and invisible. It is the A and the Z of the English alphabet and everything in between, the very fact of life. The same way without the Word there was nothing created that was created similarly there is a formula to all created beings without and outside of which there was nothing created and this happens to be it.
