Clay vessels

Paul describes the apostles as clay vessels out of which God's glory shines. Perhaps you've seen or seen a picture of ancient lamps. They look like terra cotta gravy dishes into which you put oil and a wick. What provides the light is not the lamp but rather the burning oil in the lamp:

2Co 4:5  For we do not preach ourselves, but rather Jesus the Messiah as Lord, and ourselves as merely your servants for Jesus' sake.
2Co 4:6  For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God's glory in the face of Jesus the Messiah.
2Co 4:7  But we have this treasure in clay jars to show that its extraordinary power comes from God and not from us.

In Revelation Jesus is described in the same way:

Rev 21:23  The city doesn't need any sun or moon to give it light, because the glory of God gave it light, and the lamb was its lamp. 

To The Hebrews also makes this same distinction:

Heb 1:3a  He is the reflection of God's glory... 

So Jesus is a clay vessel for God's glory ala the apostles. This is not a Triune God but rather a single God exhibited in his human son.

Off topic but very, very important:

It is the height of cynicism that the healthcare industry is ignoring a known cure for Alzheimer's because it is a simple plant extract and not a chemical for which a corporation can own the patent and make billions of dollars. Here's the cure:

Here's where you can get it for $8:

Please spread the word.

The False Gospel of Alcoholics Anonymous

I came upon this great article in “The Atlantic” magazine:

It agreed wholeheartedly with my position on AA, which is that it is simply “Christianity-lite”, non-scientific and generally (though not universally) ineffectual. However, it also discusses some science-based solutions that are effectual, the primary one of which I had never heard is Naltrexone, which if you or a loved one is misusing drugs or alcohol may offer a solution.

By the way, I quit drink au naturale because it became more burden than burden-relief.

At any rate, the article is about 10 pages and a good read but the bottom line is that even if you don’t read the article I encourage you to research Naltrexone:

And see if your doctor or your loved one's doctor won’t prescribe it.
