at ground zero in my belief
Some may not understand that… so, the best illustration is this story:
Late one night on a battleship-
The captain was called to the bridge and made aware that they were on a collision course with a light on the horizon.
The captain asked if they had contacted the source of the light.
The radio man answered affirmative.
The captain told the radio man to tell whoever the hell it was to change course.
The radioman transmitted the message.
The reply was that it could not and would not change course, but suggested they change their course.
The captain of the ship took the microphone and yelled into it, “I am a captain of the United States Navy and I order you to change course.”
The reply was, “I am an Ensign and we will not change course, but strongly suggest you change your course”.
The captain of the ship replied that he was in command of the largest battleship in the fleet and it was not a suggestion, it was an order.
The reply was, although impressed, it could not and would not change course… it was a lighthouse.
Redefining God is not changing God, it is changing me.
It is MY understanding that is wrong.
It is my course that needs to change.
