This book deals with how to love, interact, and fellowship with others; presents a more realistic expectation of ourselves and of others; offers a "down-to-earth" approach to understanding the Scriptures; and encourages us to change our perspective. "If I saw what Jesus saw, I would do what Jesus did." Our present view of the earth (the world) and our brothers in Christ is through "eyes of corruption." When Jesus was here in the flesh, He (figuratively) looked into the "Eyes of the Father" to see earth as God saw earth. From that perspective, everything was correctly seen. "I treat you as I do because of my view of you, but when I look through Jesus' Eyes to see the earth, I will see you differently and I will treat you differently. When I see you as Jesus sees you, I will interact with you as Jesus interacts with you."
My mother, father, grandmothers, grandfathers, uncles, aunts, other relatives, teachers, and neighbors contributed much into my life to produce "the man that I am." I believe that the influences of all of the above are important in the proper upbringing of a child. I can say that I have never talked back to my parents or any of my elders, nor did I ever raise my voice to my parents. It is often said, "If you want respect, you will have to earn respect"; however, "Respect is not 'a conference of honor' that one has to earn, but respect is our obligation to honor everyone." In 1976, I repented and experienced the life-changing touch of Jesus, and a week or so later I was baptized in the Holy Ghost. In 1979, I began preaching and was ordained 1980. By doctrine, I would be classified as a "Full Gospel, Pentecostal Charismatic."
