So, because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold – I am about to spit you out of my moth. you say, I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing but you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
The solutions mankind has is limited. Our actual healing and development is limited. Mans solutions do not heal generations nor do they heal our lives. Mankind’s solutions keeps people functionally sick. No solution mankind has addresses the true issues that effect our lives.

Where is our dependence?
