Do svidania. ( "See you again" in Russian)..
P.S. Not all parts of my story are precisely correct. (Charles and I really met each other on the internet; then one month later we met in person in Vienna, Austria). But the idea standing behind it -- going fishing at Newland's may change your life -- is something to think about. It may give you a new lease on life, rejuvenate your spirit and body and give you and those who come with you wonderful, life lasting memories.
I wish to everybody who comes here: "Just relax and enjoy the day God has made for you!"
Spring, 2014 - The turmoil in Ukraine has happened...here are my thoughts I communicated to my representatives and senators.
I believe that, ultimately, one's attitude toward God is really what matters. For several years, I have been studying the Bible from Orthodox Berachah Church in Houston TX. Here is how to become a believer. Here is a translation I made into Russian of "Christian at Ease".
I believe that when a person is born, that God imputes human life to him. And at the same time the "sin nature" comes genetically through Adam's original sin. At some point a person will wonder about God and the meaning of life. If he desires to know more, sooner or later God will provide Gospel information. From that point that person will constantly have the choice to be for, or against, Bible (which is the mind and thinking of Jesus Christ). If new believer starts learning, absorbing and applying to his life accurate Bible teaching from a teacher/priest, he will start growing up spiritually. The growing believer must use the confession (in his own soul just naming his sins to God), which allows to re-establish the connection with God and allows Bible to become part of his soul. Believer will learn how to live faith-rest life. Finally, spiritually growing believer can reach the point when nothing in life, no disaster will cause him to loose his spiritual balance and stability, such believer becomes invincible.
