Giddy up Colts! The Red Coats are Coming!

French Red Coat

Not sure if they showed up on your Nadar, but we’re embarking a period of unparalleled opportunity; both the dawn of a revolution and the dusk of twisted fantasies; sprinked scattered across the nation as seasoned chowder; dashes of peppered-plants infiltrate our ranks like –daffodils– souring the congressional state until we’re stuck in a pickle. Excuse me…, AH – CHOO!!!

Surveillez vos six, car les grains de beaute apparaissent sur mon radar.

A simple word of instruction: If the shoe fits, wear it…

In our last blog dealing with the LGBTQ community, we confirmed philosophical ideas both redeeming and correcting the family – mostly through existentialism. We understood the importance of not conflating subjects and showed how social movements have influenced sexuality. Today we’ll deviate from the double “p” angles and begin to tap into the “f” channel; fashion.

Who Wore the Pants?

Don’t get too excited fascists! We’re not talking about pharmaceutical regulations. This is about clothes and how they have historically been correlated to gender identity. Surprisingly, the trend of what constituted dressing as a man or woman has evolved over time; with skirts being worn by men across the board since Ancient times and blouses being the common attire of nobles & peasants during America’s Colonial period.

30A man shall not take his father’s wife, nor discover his father’s skirt. Deut 22:30 KJV

It’s important to take note of these distinctions so that we escape the false dichotomy in the Scriptures before:

5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are an abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deut 22:5 KJV

Because believe it or not, this is how fascism works.

Ne me crois pas? Demandent les francais a la fin du siecle.

THE PROTOTYPE

To the French, the ‘end of century’ carried a theme that supported emotionalism, irrationalism, subjectivism and vitalism. Each of these intellectual paradigms had an essence that correlates closely to the negative aspects of the Charismatic movement; a revolution that emerged in the mid 20th century. When we emphasize spirituality over truth, we are more prone to ostracizing intellectualists — supposing that prophecy and preaching are the only forms of teaching; that God’s Word is NOT pervasive or immanent demonizing the required worship of God; with all our mind and voiding ‘all’ carnal insight from being genuine gifts of wisdom and knowledge. If the Church is not careful, it will continue its Pharisaical crucifixion of its wise men; apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists, and pastors whose words carry great dunamis to partner with God’s plan to destroy save, redeem and restore the world. O how the times have put them in hiding, but no more!

When we emphasize spirituality over truth, we are more prone to ostracizing intellectualists…

Why the Long Hair?

Additionally speaking, long hair in certain cultures also have arbitrary gender identity attached to it. Although the Nazarites often grew long hair, we see in the New Testament a rhetorical question about honor being associated with hair length. (1 Cor 11:11-15)

In Eastern cultures like Japan and China, long hair symbolized youthfulness for men and women and were generally encouraged to do so. Furthermore in Africa, long-hair was common among gender.

SIDEBAR: Do you know how good you look when you’re wearing those pants girl? You ought here putting surges in the air like you a circuit board. Did I say you’re electrifying? Nah that would be too lame. I’m telling you I didn’t have any dairy today, but you out here looking yogurt fire!

Fierce and Beautiful Hair
Native American Men Long Hair
African Men with Long Hair

Native Americans also took pride in long hair among men and women. As you can see, cultures around the world celebrated gender neutral fashions for centuries. What’s the point though? What does this have to do with the LGBTQ community?

  • Clothes effect mental well-being. LGBTQ may have inner desires confirmed through what they where wear. Because of the spirit behind how culture has changed through fashion, this may have also affect the psychology of a person growing up. This can be reasonably deduced by the fact that researchers have confirmed what they call ‘enclothed cognition.’ It is a well-known fact that clothing gives off a first impression – and – may boost self-confidence. If this is true, why wouldn’t this play an affect on gender identity? What a greater effect it would have if we clothe ourselves with Christ!
  • Neither conventional, orthodox, or universal standards in – and – of – themselves are the source of moral absolutes. Because standards change through the times and the Scriptures lack consistency by opposing each other, it is reasonable to assume that certain rules are qualified by its context. Nevertheless, Christ alone is the final arbiter of what is right and wrong and while we have the Holy Scriptures to guide us into godly living, we must remember that God is His own interpreter and will justify or condemn according to His will.

They Crossed The Lines

So whenever someone either critiques someone’s gender by what they wear or feel threatened by the ‘gaiety’ of one’s dress, take a step back and be more objective; the person may either not know the promises attached to seeking Christ or be ignorant of History. We should not conflate the clothing of dress with the clothing of one’s character.


1 Who can escape my molding;
or refuse my decorations?

2 I give sight to the blind and hearing to the death deaf;
I am the LORD, that is My name!

3 Woe to the lofty who rejected Me!
Though you sow in abundance, you will not reap my inheritance.
Although you are well-educated you have not tasted Divine knowledge.

4 And although you tread upon grapes, they shall not be crushed.
Come to me, and I will give you wine you know not of.

5 Your most prized oils shall be as surstromming. You will confide in others, but no one will trust you.
Put your trust in the LORD, and your storehouse shall be stringed with wealth.

6 Instead of jealousy, you shall be surrounded with camaraderie. You shall be lifted upon High, because you bear my image.
And those who approach you shall go downward; instead of the swan you shall be surrounded by snakes, spiders, and scorpions.

7 Your kingdom shall be thwarted for your prideful tongue.
In humility will I establish my Kingdom with you, and you shall rule over Israel.

8 You have sought my face continually, therefore I the LORD will do it!
Because you did not seek Me;
I the LORD shall do it!

9But I waited for Christ, who has hid His face from me. Though I was deceived, I maintain my hope.
And you are impatient, saying “no one is coming to save you”. So you trusted in your strength, but it shall betray you.

10 In one year you shall lose everything. Where you were once a rich man, you shall now become a slave.
On the twelve day in the month of Julius I shall bring her.
She was enslaved as a peasant, but I will make her royalty.

11 No longer shall my people listen to false prophets; their priests or imitate their worshippers.
Because you trusted in soothsayers; tarot readers and seances, you shall be the talk of demons.

12 For as waves hit the shore, so shall my Truth rush forth.
For as a Tsunami wrecks shorelines, so shall you drown in your falsehoods.


13 All those who oppose shall be bowed by my majesty.
Although they fight Me, they shall not succeed.


14 For the LORD is a Father to all who seek Him. They are translated from a generation without hope to a family of Promise.

For the LORD is a dead beat to all who despise Him. They are a generation destined to be caught and destroyed forever.

15 From the East to the West, they shall enter my territory as aliens.

17 They will flee from terror and know the fear of the LORD.

18 These are the oracles of Christ given by James; servant and fellow-laborer of the gospel.
To the one who clothes us with his majesty; Blessed be the name of the LORD God forever! Amen.


“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

How they Quitted the Author: Innersextions Pt. 2

Plagurize Tee

If you go too fast, you’re in danger of going through the motions. Too slow and everything becomes stagnant. For most of us, we’re most vulnerable when we feel alone and exposed; our flaws are captured and observed with looks that make our skin squirm. How you fare when you feel threatened or tender depends on what you acknowledge about yourself and your surroundings. Take a deep breath…can you feel God? Can you feel me too? I know it’s hard to remember sometimes.

With an online world full of criticisms, people will put their best selves forward with the question remaining if they are being authentic. The weirdest phenomenon I’ve seen on social media is that people will look on a screen for people who are ‘real’ and ‘raw’ with them. Can you imagine how many trolls there would be if people could reach through their phone or tablet? Judging by the way the world looks now, it’s a good thing certain people don’t have super powers.

But there’s a hidden curse with those with common sense; as they say great minds think alike – and I would add – feel like too. (***Let me take a pause here***) Can you please get that booger out of your nose so I can breathe better? Thanks. I appreciate it.

Last week, some of our dear elders tackled philosophical ideas surrounding identity and the LGBTQ community. Interesting to say the least. I wish we had more people tackling subjects with impartiality, but that’s just what it is for now. I’m noticing more assumptions of certain Christian dogmas as correct (not referring to the elementary stuff here) and when we fail to critique our own stances, we may begin to present our opinions as inflexible truths rather than facts that are qualified by its context. Some things are true until it’s not and vice versa. Did you feel God? Can you feel me too? I know it’s hard to remember sometimes.

6 If you put these things before the brothers, you will be a good servant of Christ Jesus, being trained in the words of the faith and of the good doctrine that you have followed. 1 Tim 4:6 ESV

Howl At The MOON

Philosophy can wear you out man. Especially when it comes to existentialism: whose premise in my humble opinion is scrabbled semantics in a misguided attempt to provide a system to be authentic. Not going to explain my thoughts on that matter for now because the primary focus is to give further arguments in redeeming and correcting the alphabet community. There are certainly bugs within the existentialist framework; whether we are pulling notes from Jean-Paul Sartre, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, or George Serban, it’s clear that we can’t conflate identity with authenticity, and that any attempt to do so will muddy the waters between hypocrisy and delusion. Hold your horses Lexi! Let me explain that here:

Lexi: Why do you feel you need to explain yourself?

Me: I don’t need to explain myself, unless I’m seeking to express and justify my true nature.

Tee in The Hay

Ti-Grace Atkinson

I know I’m not alone in such sentiments, as is the case for any person whose eccentric, radical or a maverick. Explaining is a premeasure to protect oneself in society and the weaponry to stand up for others. This is certainly the case with Ti-Grace Atkinson; a gay woman who contributed to the system of radical feminism. Quite frankly, there is much for me to learn about the different sub-sets about feminism, except this class is off-putting considering the animosity towards men – Black men – in particular. There should be no surprise that the recent gender wars are rising from repeated instances of dehumanizing the other.

The feminist dilemma is that it is as women — or “females” — that women are persecuted, just as it was as slaves — or “blacks” — that slaves were persecuted in America: in order to improve their condition, those individuals who are today defined as women must eradicate their own definition. Women must, in a sense, commit suicide, and the journey from womanhood to a society of individuals is hazardous.

Butter UP the Quilt

As humans, the more proud we are, the more we are willing to expose our rawness. When shame, threats, or courtesy arises, we look for places to hide. Society oppresses our ‘freedoms’ with consequences should we act in a way contrary with its laws. Such oppressions aren’t bad when the law is just, but let it be misguided or sinister then man!!! It’s horrible how difficult it is for women to get appropriate health care; to get maternity leave without worrying if their livelihood will be lost, striving for equality with men when now they have another existential threat; the transgender woman.

A man who has sadistic thoughts maybe considered unclean or a murderer at worst within a Christian context, but if he genuinely refrains from carrying out his imagination due to repentance, would we still classify him a sadist? If a person identifies themselves as a cat and spends most of their days acting like a cat, we can say they are being their authentic selves, but their body betrays their fancies. How would we identify such a person? A four foot six boy can walk around thinking they are a titan — crushing nations underneath his feet — only to be pulverized by a towering bully at school. Who is the boy ‘really’? What’s the point here?

…it’s clear that we can’t conflate identity with authenticity, and that any attempt to do so will muddy the waters between hypocrisy and delusion.

– The Prototype, “How They Quitted the Author”

Off in the Town

If we can see how acting upon every impulse may not be good, we can indulge in the more introspective, innate part of us. At what point should we suppress our desires? When should we let ourselves go and be “free”? As long as we can recognize that our identity is in some respects shared, we can build genuine relationships. Again, I know what it feels like to be trapped in a fragile body. I’m sure many people do. To do what I think is best for myself, I must adhere to a code; an ethics I develop personally but is also consistent with logic, nature, and the society I live in. In my personal opinion, making such decisions help me to move in a way most harmonious with the world, although I don’t need to agree with everything the world says. Some discord is good. Just ask Bartok.

I’ll come at this topic from one last angle and then we’ll move on. To all those within the LGBTQ community, you are loved. If you believe in God, try to discern how God wants you to follow Him/Her.

Questions to Consider

Does identity equate to authenticity? When do you KNOW you’re being authentic? Is being your true-self consistent with your identity?

For Christians:

How can we better relate to the LGBTQ community?

In what ways can we tackle to issues of racism, sexism, and other schisms in our community holistically?

Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers.

— 1 Tim 4:16 ESV

The Cure – Nas




Many aeons ago, there was a group of teachers that imparted esoteric knowledge. Because of their secretive and often Xtra-Biblical nature, they were shunned by the Church. They’re known as the Gnostics; name coming from the Greek word Gnosis meaning having knowledge. The Gnostics took learning very personal and allegedly were critical thinkers often challenging the Orthodoxy of the Day. For any outsider, they would agree that Gnostics were merely rebels and false teachers unless:

  • They understood the promise given to the church of Pergamum.

17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the HIDDEN MANNA, and I will give him a white stone, with a NEW NAME written on the stone that no one knows EXCEPT the one who receives it. Rev 2:17 Emphasis added

  • Teaching esoteric and wait for it…

    exoteric knowledge was a part of Discipleship.

25 It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they had called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household. 26 So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. Matt 10: 25-27 ESV

Now as ambassadors of Christ, let’s redeem some aspects of their teachings and throw away the others. For it will be useful in the future. Gnostics believed that the material world is inherently evil due to its flawed nature. (An objective truth if you do not subscribe to the Monist philosophy). Where it gets fuzzy is that they believed the material world is unredeemable and NOT created by the true God. It came from a lesser deity called the demiurge. The problem of this teaching is that it allows for complete denial of Jesus Christ. It is one thing to deny Jesus by name, it is more dangerous to deny him in essence.

Erica: Could we change the pronouns from him to her?

Me: Yes. It’s implied through the text.

Pamela: What if we’re non-binary? Can we use other pronouns?

Me: The text uses inclusive language ‘all’ so that would permit other pronouns.

Now we have been able to redeem LBGT & Gnosticism. For what purpose though?

  1. It gives stronger premises to redeem the New Age Movement.
  2. It provides systems of knowledge to recover lost narratives.

My hope after we deal with the LGBT community is further talk about what true perfection looks like in Christ, and uncover mysterious teachings in love. I am eager to do the latter in the context of music as I want to share all the things I learned from my mentors when I left music behind. When I get to my safe place, I’ll really start recording music again. I’m so excited! Lord please keep me alive until my work is done! Let my life be an inspiration to many to be their true selves in Christ. Let me free recording artists to not worry about having fans or making hits unless it is about tearing down the Kingdom of Evil. In your matchless name, Amen.

CONFIDENTIAL: I see you passed one of the gates. Good job. You’ll need to get stronger if you are going to continue to safely merge dimensions. We’ll see you on the other side….

Passage To Dissect

Look at the following passage:

Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the Lord your God which I command you.

Deuteronomy 4:2 King james version
  • What rules can you perceive goes with Exegeting passages from the text? What rules should follow when it comes to adding to a text?
  • What secrets or hidden implications can you find in the passage? What does that tell you about HIDDEN MANNA?

Cell With an X

Jail Pic

For many of us, many new windows of opportunities have opened up. At last, we can say life is sweet with a lil’ chip on your shoulder. This is just a humble brag. You’re feeling more inspired like a bed covered with silky indigo sheets basking in every moment as you look at the horizons. If you’re like me, you’re becoming more of a person who lives with no regrets; the past becomes a ring of fingered melodies and the fleeting intel you need should you wish to travel back in time. And as the day progresses and you become more feeble through life’s adversities, there comes an inner defense; a potent force that meets backwardness with a smiling face. Not sure if it’s through fried nerves or achieving Nirvana, but I do know the collective spirit at work. It’s the same Spirit that leads me to today’s Gospel reading:

2 Bear one another’s burdens, and fulfill the law of Christ. 3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. 4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. 5 For each will have to bear his own load. Gal 6:2-5 ESV

The Prison of Biblical Accountability

Obligations are shunned because they go counter to what we call freedom. There’s a demand for records (SIDEBAR: I can’t wait til’ I’m able to physically produce my music. Lord willing it will be some of my greatest work revealing the things I’ve done in secret!) that may expose your weaknesses and detract from your image. Such is true so long as we overindulge our ego and not look to Christ and others as pieces of ourselves. When we look at the world as an extension and not an opponent or autonomous entity, we will love and support each other more.

When we look at the world as an extension and not an opponent or autonomous entity, we will love and support each other more.

The Prototype

Thought Experiment

The following is an exercise in interpretation using juxtaposition. Look at today’s Gospel reading and thread it with Galatians 5:14. *IT COULD* read something like this:

14 For the whole law is fulfilled in ‘one’ word:
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
14 For the whole law is fulfilled in ‘one’ word:
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
3 For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
4 But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor.

“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
5 For each will have to bear his own land.

2 Bear one another’s burdens, and fulfill the law of Christ.

14 For the whole law is fulfilled in ‘one’ word:
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Points in Consideration

  • Consider the two verses: 2 Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ. 5 For each will have to bear his own load.
    How do you reconcile these passages that apparently contradict each other?
  • Read Gal 2:20. Are you the summation of all things? If so, how should you regard other people?
  • How do you hold yourself accountable? Do you find it worthwhile to submit to another for assessment? In what ways partnerships can be mutually edifying?
  • Given your current resources, how can you help others?

Protests Against Inflation

When support breaks down it usually comes from two causes:

  1. Arrogance
  2. Exhaustion

Historically speaking, there has been little spaces to healthy growth. Cultivation amongst organizations are often hindered due to short sessions of nurturing. And because our current world esteems money and assets as the primary means to survival, those who do not directly affect the bottom line are overlooked. More honor is needed to those who provide sweat equity whether through their hands, lips, or heart. For when we ensure the least among us wins, everybody goes to the next level.

For when we ensure the least among us wins, everybody goes to the next level.

But what happens if we treat others as if they’re worthless? Well Biblically speaking, there are three ways to consider worthlessness.

  1. The person who regularly engages in ungodly or sanctimonious behavior.
  2. A person who does good but is often overlooked.
  3. All people in relation to the headship of the Almighty.

This question is speaking to the second viewpoint in robbing people of their God-given dignity. Assuming the following premise is true, you can draw the following conclusion.

There is ONE body of Christ and each man members of each other.
Therefore to despise or dishonor one, you have debased yourself.

And we can expect God using the world to antagonize you until you see each men made in the image of Christ.

Show The Work

In High School, as much as I loved Mathematics, I would sometimes be subpar or fail tests throughout the year. Just about every time my grades were less than I expected, it was due to silly mistakes; either I was rushing and overlooking details or I was too self-confident and figured I can skip steps and still get them correct. I was the type that tried to excel in mental math. Can you do calculations in your head?

Our work is a reflection of our thoughts and habits. If you are not happy with where you are in life, consider the work you’ve been putting out. Whether that is external work or internal work, you should find pleasure and contentment in whatever you do.

  • Name two types of common photographic processing. How does this relate to one’s memory?

Iconix Ending

The final point would lose its effectiveness if it isn’t based on Christ. For while these words convey broad ideas, Christ is fundamentally the essence of it all. And the more you see Christ as the most objective truth, the more the allure of this world becomes less. Speaking this truth is what will eventually make you a bonded servant. But what a free servant you become! I’ll close this blog out with a response to a man I hold dear and respect.

Tweet by Neil deGrasse Tyson

Interpretation matters. If the universe has no center, how is there life on earth? Why are there cities bustling with life? We have government, celebrities, sports, and schools. And it’s all being animated by what source? Randomness? I’d like to think reason has a more higher vibration, don’t you? And as I look into the skies, I cannot help but feel that someone is peering into the depths of my soul; piercing beyond my fragile frame revealing both the light and darkness within Me. When I close my eyes, I can sense it. The auras of space spark behind my eyelids like an Eternal Twilight. These words come from a man who strives to think with integrity; who prefers a belief system that’s more inclusive with facts rather than exclusive. I find the former having the capacity to be more fair with assessments than the latter. Society has done much harm discriminating and compartmentalizing things. So in my humble opinion, with deference to Divine Knowledge, I assert that:

Sense the Universe has *KNOW* center, you *CAN* be it through Christ.

I wonder how this may change what goes down in people’s DMs? Any who, go be great and make others great through Christ. I James, along with many other saints, some you know and others you do not, write this blog to you. And as always, I love you. Until next time.

See with what large letters I am writing to you with my own hand.

The Bishop's Opening

CHAPTER ONE

America’s Red Flag

1Here is what God is saying concerning the United States:
The colors of your flag are red, white, and blue;
why then is your land only red?
2The sounds of violence are within the ear shots of babes;
the musician no longer plays their instrument,
and the singer has ceased from singing.
3Nations have turned their backs on you;
even those who plead to you for their lives,
for you have exchanged vitals for vitriol.
4Open your eyes and weep! Feel remorse!
For your transgressions have piled up,
and you have prized rubies over me.

His Story of Slaves


5I showed belligerence to your fathers;
when I punished them with the sword and with whips,
my wrath was on display as in a stadium.
6I impoverished them even to the depths of their soul,
but my Holy Ones can afford my delight and favor;
for the sweetness of my charm has never left my necks.
7They have found their standing in Me,
and become my most precious of Messengers.
Because of this, they will receive my inheritance.
8Doesn’t my name bring about salvation?
Does it not both deliver and destroy?
Dare to praise me, and you will find refuge.

The King’s Meme


9For I am the LORD, a consuming fire;
Yeshua, the LORD of hosts.
I was severed from my brothers as in the days of Joseph.
10And my brothers came to me saying,
“Who are you to tell us you’re the King?”
And my authority is challenged.
11Therefore I instructed my muses to prepare a drink for me
with hyssop; for a libation, but for themselves.
Let them pursue pleasure within reason, 
lest the serpent beguile them.
12I commanded the powers to irrigate the land with dryness;
that the country shall thirst with nothing to quench,
and the ungodly shall drown in their appetite.
13Those who have respect to my name shall not be in chains,
they shall remain untarnished;
uninhibited and will escape the grip of the despot.
14Still the sacrilegious shall burn in their corruption;
it shall be heaped upon them as coals of fire;
yes even as meteors of wormwood.
15Their souls shall be tormented forever;
left desolate with no one to restore,
for they despised the only hand that could rescue.

A Waning Church


16O Israel, my ministers have become dispassionate;
my prophets are apathetic,
for their bloodshot eyes have not seen peace.
17And the minds of the wise agonize,
they seek knowledge from dusk until morning,
and yet no solution is found to cure.
18Because at the end of the Day, they’ve forgotten Me.
I am the Day, the Bright Morning Star.
The grind that the LORD requires has ceased amongst them.
19Therefore dancing shall cease from the clubs,
and skipping from the hearts of the streets.
Giddiness shall be known as an ancient relic;
20And the vigor of the strong shall fail;
even the fragrances and cosmetics.
Let those who keep judgment accept bribes no more!

21Keep the ways of the LORD and he will preserve you;
You will continue on Highways that the profane cannot enter.
22You will rest in the loveliest pastures that God has provided.
Justice shall be your front and rear shield.
For only the pure in heart can enter my presence.

Job Confucious Quote

Exploring Eastern Philosophies

FOREWORD: The following passage is an excerpt from the Analects; the teachings of Confucius gathered through dialogue in a book. How can one find Christ within these sayings?

Sayings of the Master:

“If the great man be not grave, he will not be revered, neither can his learning be solid.

“Give prominent place to loyalty and sincerity.

“Have no associates in study who are not advanced somewhat like yourself.

“When you have erred, be not afraid to correct yourself.”

A saying of the Scholar Tsang:

“The virtue of the people is renewed and enriched when attention is seen to be paid to the departed, and the remembrance of distant ancestors kept and cherished.”

Tsz-k’in put this query to his fellow disciple Tsz-kung: said he, “When our Master comes to this or that State, he learns without fail how it is being governed. Does he investigate matters? or are the facts given him?”

Tsz-kung answered, “Our Master is a man of pleasant manners, and of probity, courteous, moderate, and unassuming: it is by his being such that he arrives at the facts. Is not his way of arriving at things different from that of others?”

A saying of the Master:

“He who, after three years’ observation of the will of his father when alive, or of his past conduct if dead, does not deviate from that father’s ways, is entitled to be called ‘a dutiful son.'”

Sayings of the Scholar Yu:

“For the practice of the Rules of Propriety,[1] one excellent way is to be natural. This naturalness became a great grace in the practice of kings of former times; let everyone, small or great, follow their example.

“It is not, however, always practicable; and it is not so in the case of a person who does things naturally, knowing that he should act so, and yet who neglects to regulate his acts according to the Rules.

“When truth and right are hand in hand, a statement will bear repetition. When respectfulness and propriety go hand in hand, disgrace and shame are kept afar-off. Remove all occasion for alienating those to whom you are bound by close ties, and you have them still to resort to.”

For God is not a God of CONFUCIAN, BUT of peace – as in all the churches of the saints. 1 Cor 14:33 ESV Eisegesis added
