These commentaries were written mostly during 2011, from August until January 2012. The blogs were published, and then I linked them on Facebook, Twitter, and other smaller forums and social... More > networks. Each blog came about mainly through conversations with people about God, Truth and Enbrightenment. The conversations occurred with friends, family, and with various people I met through social networks. Out of these conversations the blogs were born, which in turn became the commentaries gathered in this book. The commentaries are not in the same order originally published at HeartRealization.com. Furthermore, the Axioms of Enbrightenment with commentary, and a simplified overview of Enbrightenment are also included, along with a glossary of terms often used in my writings, but not necessarily easily understood. This book is the first book written for Enbrightenment that falls outside of "The Resurrection Testament". God Bless. http://www.HeartRealization.com< Less

In the introduction to his commentary, Charles Hodge investigates the sociopolitical climate of the city of Ephesus prior to Paul's first visit. Ephesus was famous for its idolatrous practices of... More > sorcery and divination. Upon arriving in Ephesus, Paul and his disciples spread the word of Jesus to the wayward Jews and Greeks, and many were converted. A flourishing Church was established, and several years after his visit to Ephesus, Paul wrote to the Ephesians while imprisoned in Rome. Paul wrote this letter to praise God for the gift of redemption and to guide the Christians of Ephesus in the light of the Holy Ghost. Several sections of the epistle focus on godly social interactions. This epistle was in large part intended to encourage unity between newly converted Jews and the rest of the Christian community. Hodge's careful scrutiny gives readers a newly informed look at Paul's letter to the Christians at Ephesus. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
