Jesus in ACIM talks quite a lot about saving the world. This obviously can lead to some confusion. Does it mean the world is to be kept? Does it mean we need to save the animals? Is it a...

Catchy title eh.

When a situation presents itself, on a physical level, with signs and symptoms and effects that you can see and touch, it seems to be real to you. If you do not overlook it, they form evidence and proof that...

Salvation is EXTREMELY simple.
"You cannot be hurt unless you hurt yourself."

Nothing has gone wrong.
There is nothing wrong with you.
You have not sinned.
You are immortal.

You are sustained by the love of God at all times.
