Synopsis

God loves you! Jesus loves you! Amen! Embrace God in the right perspective with the right foundation of faith in Him. Every living soul in the history of mankind is a child of God. In Christ and through Christ, we shall all live again. Blood and flesh do not inherit the kingdom of God, neither all of our earthly wealth. All men shall be born again of the Word of God, to full embrace Him and live eternally in His divine Truth and Spirit. Each is born with a given measure of faith in the Word of God. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Jesus is the Alpha and Omega. The future middle eastern war is coming soon! The return of Christ is a certainty! Amen! The Word of God shall bring forth abundance of joyful enlightenment in your heart and soul. The greatest joy and success on earth is to discover your truthful identity as a child of God. You came into this world empty handed and you shall return to God with heartfelt delight in the revelation, wisdom and glory of His Truth. You are glory destined. God bless! Amen!

The Truth will Set you Free, is written by ‚Äúa true faith believer in the way, the truth and the life in Jesus Christ,‚ÄĚ Chris Tham. He is a man who is wholly committed to Christian biblical scripture. Right from the get-go, Chris begins his¬†own interpretation of passages from the Bible that he has curated in a way that follows the biblical timeline from the Old Testament to the New. He is intensely inspired and passionate about scripture. He discusses the journey between being a non believer and believer as a transformation process which he likens to the growth cycle of a mustard tree which begins with the seed of faith. Chris uses a biblical image of the mustard seed as a symbol of growth and connects it to the number 9 because the mustard plant grows 9 feet tall. ¬†He expands on that number to find other instances in the Bible where it is symbolic, like the 9 fruits of the holy spirit. I liked his graphs that parallel faith, hope, and love with the questions; Who are we? Why are we created? What does life mean to us? How should we live our lives? Where is our ultimate destiny? ¬†


Chris also puts forth what he calls an Option theory. He presents us with two options on how we want to live our lives moving forward. And we are to answer the question after we die. If you could choose, would you live in eternity with God, or would you live eternally with your family? And he teases out the idea that God is something we cannot understand in a physical sense so we would all pick our families. And it is through Jesus that man can get a glimpse into what God is. But there is one thing Chris knows for sure, the Christian God is the one choice for everyone in the world. The only choice. Chris has committed to studying the Bible as a way of being and has done a lot of the heavy lifting that many of us will never do for ourselves. I would have like to read more of Chris’s personal reflections because there were many biblical passages that needed commentary. Also, the chapters were not linked, so it was difficult navigating about and the font needs to be reword reworked.   But overall promising. Thank you, Chris, a faithful man of God.


Just remember. All books are good books but not all books are for all people!

WHO IS GOD AND WHO ARE YOU?

Let us all begin this chapter with an overview of humanity to be followed by the two (2) key pertinent questions¬†‚Ästwho is God to you and who are you to God in an intellectual questions and answers dialogue¬†‚Ästexamining all key aspects of our present day beliefs in our contemporary daily living environment.

In our present day, there are numerous religions and beliefs and even denominations within the same sect of faith. The major renowned beliefs are Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism.

The Atheists do not believe there is the existence of God. They proclaim that men created God in their psychological minds. In their viewpoint, God is created to fill up the knowledge gap which science has yet to fully discover to give us the satisfactory illuminating answer in an acceptable and convincing manner concerning any matter.

All the above-mentioned major renowned religions and beliefs are supposedly to lead humanity into upright morale living with correctness of social relationships exhibiting equal rights, justice, fairness, respect and care for all human races living under one roof on earth which is our world.

Without doubt though many may dispute it - our present-day world has seen tremendous progress in humanity¬†‚Ästbe it in the field of science, social justice, economic development, human rights, health care, environmental care and others.

Our world has progressed from two (2) infamous world wars¬†‚Ästthe First World War from 1914 to 1918 whilst the Second World War from 1935 to 1945. Millions of innocent civilians had been tortured and killed during these two wars and yet all these major renowned religions and beliefs had existed thousands or hundreds of years before these catastrophic events.

And many are anticipating a third world war in the age to come with the high likelihood of it to be triggered in the Middle East¬†‚Ästthe seemingly no end conflict between the Jews and the non-Jewish people (including all of us).

The social and economic injustice is seemingly more evident with nearly half of the world’s population living on less than USD3 a day (equivalent to USD90 a month)! According to UNICEF, approximately 22,000 children die each day due to poverty!

In countries which embrace democratic practices and perfectly free capital markets with dominance seen mostly in western countries; it is a common phenomenon for the wealthiest households to own the majority of the country’s wealth as wide disparities in wealth and income are evident in all of these countries.

Two notable examples in point are America and India¬†‚Ästthe wealthiest 1% of American households¬†own 40% of the country‚Äôs wealth according to a most recent research paper¬†whilst for India¬†‚Ästthe¬†richest 1% of Indian households own half of the country‚Äôs wealth and the bottom 60% which is the majority of the Indian population, own only a miniscule 5% of the nation‚Äôs wealth.

In countries which embrace social capitalism where intervention from the central government or bureaucracy is evidently in practice¬†‚Ästthe economic disparities in wealth and income are similar. A leading example is China¬†‚Ästthe richest 1% of the households own more than one third (1/3) of¬†the country‚Äôs wealth.

Driven by the very lustful desires of human nature for dominion in almost every sphere of connectivity in an ever-expanding boundary of existence, men continue with their selfish pursuit for self-proclaimed righteousness, political power, economic dominance and self- actualization perpetuating social and economic injustice and lawlessness in human societies throughout the history of mankind.

There are many of us who are born deformed¬†‚Ästblind, deaf, dumb, lame with some even without hands and legs while others are mentally retarded. And without doubt, there are also a handful of us who are born rich¬†‚Ästchildren of multimillionaires or billionaires.

There had been, there are and there would be¬†‚Ästmany heroes who had fought, who are continuing with their struggles and who would be fighting for justice in human rights and equality in the social and economic wellbeing for the common good of all brotherhood in their societies and countries. Some of their names could be remembered if only they were recorded in the history books and many were forgotten as time continues to move on with our everlasting journey in the history of mankind.

Questions which had surfaced in our minds a long time ago in the past, present and age to come continued to resurface time and time again as we continue to endure our struggles in our daily life.
