Please pray for my unenlightened brothers and sister.
They dont want to listen to anything I say to them.
Pray that they may not be forever blinded by the passions of this vain and corrupted world.

Their names are Alex, Ivan, and Marina.
Alex is 23, Ivan is 21, and Marina is 14.

I am soo blessed to not still be attracted to this world...

That's pretty normal.  Don't be too concerned.  I don't think my brother or I listened to each other until we were at least in our 30's.   Smiley

The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.

I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

Yes he said that, but what incriminated him was the fact that he judged another, for he said, 'even as this publican'. He thought that he was better than him, i am not saying i am better than them, I am just trying to be in oneness of mind with my family that's all.
When you are living with worldly people, who dont fear God, you become like them.

When I say 'worldy' I mean the passions and everything which is not holy, the holy father explained it in this way.

If you only knew that: Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.
The heart is where heaven is, the heart is where everything is, the demons are even there.
This prayer can take you there, but beware of delusion.

The physical world is a beautiful place, but it is only an idol of God's beauties.

1Cor. 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
Rom. 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

This is good advice for any Christian, or person for that matter.

There was a reason Jesus' message didn't go over so well in his own town.  Smiley
