In “I AM the Origin of Species!” the Mind of Christ finds its voice, challenging man’s worldviews and charging the believer to deeper faith. Written in the spirit of Jesus’ letters in Revelation, these epistles clarify biblical truths, affirm God’s counsel on today’s burning issues (evolution, atheism, America’s secularity, sexuality, the stewardship of pastors, African Traditional Religion, the occult…), and call all men to newness and fullness of Life in Christ.

It fascinates me every time I hear some celebrity has sold his soul to the devil. I mean, I had always thought this was one of those creepy things you hear in a Dracula-themed movie. But this was before I heard it live on TV. A singer had this to say: “I have sold my soul to the devil … that’s a crappy deal.”
And crappy it is, no doubt. Yet those signing up for it today are literarily a multitude. Some are seduced by gain or fame, reeled in by ignorance, or blackmailed into it. Together, these ones have defied the exalted One and deified the fallen one, bestowing worship on the heady goat. They have exalted their horns, lifted their hearts in pride, and held the Lord God in contempt.
Satan, intend on selling them to a ruinous scheme, has assured them ‘there was no fall, therefore no sin; no devil, hence no evil; no Christ, thus no cross.’ And this lie have they bought into and even become ‘evangelists’ for.
But does God wish wrath upon them? No, He desires that none of them should perish; He loves them and longs for them with outspread arms. He indeed seeks their redemption (2 Peter 3:9). But will they someday estrange their strange ways and come to repentance?
"I AM the Origin of Species!"
Oh, but why have you, O rebel, lifted your heart in pride and held the Lord God in contempt? And who has goaded you so but your father Lucifer—that cherub who was once draped in lustrous glory but soiled his princely robes in vainglory? Striking for pre-eminence, he strove with his Maker. Created to worship, he refrained from my praise. Will you his sons exalt me then, when you will not repent and amend? 2So, go on; do what thou wilt: delude your eyes in fantasies and indulge your flesh till you are gorged. Have you not said you have no need for God and no use for prayer? Yet you soon shall seek and make prayers to the one you despised. But on that Day and in that horrible hour, the voice of succor shall be silent. In that fearsome place where your wanton libertine dwells, the lament of ‘the mighty’ shall be pain-pitched and the Lord’s mercy cut off forever.
