A complete renovation is needed in the body of Christ with regard to the spiritual meals given to people. What people are fed with determines their responses to certain influences, whether internal or external, and their consequential course of action. In this universe, two kingdoms exist, namely, the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness. Both kingdoms have a bearing on our lives here on earth. Natural and spiritual food is available to everyone that needs it. In case of spiritual food, God advises us to choose food that would give us life instead of food that would give us death. In the natural, when one indulges in junk food, it is likely to cause obesity, hypertension, diabetes and so on. So spiritually, if we feed on false doctrine, we will become sick spiritually; yet if we feed on sound doctrine, we will be spiritually healthy. We all have to scrutinise our food before we eat it. The Bible furthermore classifies human beings as natural and spiritual people, respectively.

According to the savvy African Scientist by the name of Cheikh Anta Diop, the true cause of Socrates death was the fact that he brought and introduced new ideas (from a foreign country) to the society in which he was living.(conference in LOME, Africa). Another wise African Scientist who was at the time living in France, once said: Opening myself to others, Paris has opened me to the true knowledge of myself. Leopold Sedar Senghor. (from a book read in the secondary school, in the DR Congo, 1976-79). In this book, SPIRITUAL GROWTH IN THE MIDST OF CHALLENGES: a positive answer to a destructive disposition, the author is trying to explain that each society creates its barriers. With its cultures and beliefs, societies have developed Barriers; such as: - unableling someone financially by refusing to hire her/him for the work he /she qualified for; or which she/he deserves and systematically putting him/her down; - assassinating ones character by labeling him /her as a mental health sufferer because of his/her courage of not being afraid to speak the truth and to bring it forward to the public; - preventing him/her to generate good income in order to live a decent and prosper life; - Breaking his /her spirit by refusing his /her work and therefore, destroying all her/his credibility and efforts to evolve; Those barriers are implemented to allow or to limit certain people from becoming successful in a given society. These calculated bad intentions are put in place and carried on to make someone become sick or just to harm. What the author is really trying to say is that when a person lacks supports ( i.e, financial, emotional, and social), he or she is already dead. This attitude proceed from the society that does not promote gifts, talents and abilities of someone prominent and promising because of the color of his/her skin, the origin, the religion or the difference in reasoning. Isnt true that anything that waste potential or potentiality is Evil?

Can time be our friend? At first glance the question seems ridiculous, because the apparent scarcity of time is a constant source of stress in our busy lives. There are not enough hours in the day, we say as we collapse late at night. Deep down we know that we cannot go on like this. Father Stinnisen's book dares us to see time with new eyes. The insight that eternity is written in the depths of our hearts helps us to live in time in a way that leads us deeper into God's joy. We are like children in a land of fairy tales where everything is exciting and exploration never ends.We therefore should rejoice that everything around us is great and mysterious and that we can live in eternal wonder. His intention is not to explain what time is and thus take away its mystery. Instead, his aim is to show us how to see time from different perspectives and to discover how rich and multifaceted it is. Above all, he demonstrates how we can make use of the tremendous possibilities that time offers to us.
