The Danger of Unbelief

Many things in life constitute their ways and means of survival; from the time of birth to adulthood, life is always on the move. The physical part of it, guided by the soul, determines and accomplishes success, or goals. Life is a beautiful thing, when lived in agreement with its destiny. A successful person has the stamina and perseverance of belief to persevere to the end and so he accomplishes what he determined to do in his life time. Belief in something is necessary in life to achieve success. Here I am not referring to religious beliefs, but beliefs in the natural ways of life itself. We wonder why success has not reached everyone in the term of riches. We can go only as high as our belief leads us to go. Some reaches for the stars, and gets high enough to accomplish many things life offers. Others’ goals and beliefs go as high as they determine to go in their course of studies. Content with what life offers in that dimension, they seek their success. Knowledge however, has a way to take life higher, when one belief in it. To be distinguished in life, requires belief and efforts. Believing in yourself, in your abilities and solidifying your belief by your success, will be your reward on earth.

A man of unbelief is as Solomon described in Proverbs 24:30-34, when he said, I went by the field of the lazy man and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; and behold, I was all grown over with thorns and nettles were covering its face, and its stone wall was broken down. Then I beheld and considered it well; I looked and received instruction. Yet, a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep – so shall your poverty come as a robber and your want as an armed man. Man without belief in self has no reason to get up in the morning, so he continues in his slumber and the result is seen in his life style. Weeds outside his garden, and cobwebs inside his house declare who he is. There are many answers given to the question, What do you want be when you grow up?  I want be a fireman, a postman, a trash collector, a doctor, a lawyer. All these careers have merit in the belief of the person, if for sure it is achieved. Life in general then is believing in the future of all kinds, creating a society that generates colorful and promising future for all who believe in it by doing the best to achieve its success.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
