Presented at the program “Stop Open Borders: Say No to Poverty, Crime, and Tyranny” on July 29, 2020, hosted by the Gray Republican Committee. A video of my presentation is listed here.
I start with a question–a dilemma that does indeed have an answer. How can good-hearted, ethical, moral people make the suggestion to “stop open borders”? The first few words of John 3:16 are: “For God so loved the world.” With imagination, one can sense that God looks down at the world and sees all human beings, of every color, race, creed, and nationality, as sacred individuals born with the light of God dwelling in their hearts.
~ a forgotten tale of prehistoric love
Forty-thousand years ago, surrounded by outcroppings of rock, there lived a small tribe of thoroughly unkempt individuals who spent their time hunting for birds and gambling for slaves. One of those slaves, known only as Limp, was breathing heavily as he pressed himself against the cliff under their encampment and peered at the jagged rocks below.
He tried to ignore the death that awaited him and instead took solace in the thought that his recent capture had given him the chance to prevent his friend from being ordered over the cliff. She was too small and weak to have survived.
“You. Attend to me.”
Kim Jong Un had almost brushed past me as he walked through the conference room, surrounded by his security men. I’m not sure why, but he stopped and stared at me for a moment before he spoke.
His security men didn’t give me a chance to reply, as one of them took my arm and led me out of the room behind the Supreme Leader. I glanced back at the people in the hall, wondering if I would see them again.
At the age of fifty-two, in 2007, when I wrote the original version of this essay, I realized that I had to expand my external goals to include my life in the spirit world. I should have realized this much earlier in life, but for many years I had separated my goals. My “external” career goals went only as far as the end of my life in the physical world. My goals for the spirit world were limited to “internal” goals, such as loving God and loving people. I now feel that this is too limiting. In my opinion, we won’t stop working in the afterlife. We’ll want to do something.

“Would you like to live happily ever after with your one true love?”
The True Love Thing to Do shows you how you can build a marriage of true love. It explains why it’s better to wait until marriage to have sexual relations—not just because of pregnancy or STDs but because of the beauty and value of love. The True Love Thing to Do describes a new way of thinking, feeling, and acting, and most of all a new way of loving. It introduces a new paradigm for life in the twenty-first century: the “Age of Illumination.”

New Version: The Incarnational Rights of Men and Women: The Illumination and Flowering of Homo IncarnatusThe twenty-first century has brought humankind to a crossroads. Will all human beings enjoy complete civil and religious freedom based on their inalienable rights, or will global tyranny erode and crush those rights?
Strains of tyranny come in many forms, but top contenders for this century include the potential global hegemonies of Communist China, an Islamic Caliphate that extends into Europe and Britain, and Western nations that fall to a rising encroachment of socialism and Marxism.
In spite of the hostility and ignorance of totalitarians, I believe that the scales are weighted in favor of freedom and human rights. Illumination and a desire for freedom are percolating across the world, and have been increasing in speed and scope.
