Follow the Gleam: A Treatise on Misinformation

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Aug 23, 2001 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 240 pages
Misinformation is an impedance to metanoia, (turning from bad to good,) which is the central message of christianity. It misleads, it disorients, it confuses, it generates misunderstanding and disaffection, and occasions emotional and spiritual disquiet. This book decries its pernicious effect on the future of mutual understanding, love, peace, and harmony in the nuclear family setting, and in the wider family that includes all human beings of all colours, races and cultures. the book seeks to awaken consciousness to the reality of the pervasive presence of misinformation in our midst, recommends efforts at eradicating it, and by showing the light aims at replacing it with information that is wholesome, palatable and correct. This book is not about people per se, as individuals or as groups. It is about their intellectual inconsistencies and the harmful demagoguery that proceeds therefrom. Where names appear of persons, groups of people, institutions, or of events and places, they are merely incidental. It was not possible to avoid them and still address the wrong they were intended to instance. the directness of address is a timely invitation to change the rather too timid, too politically correct way in which important issues, especially those affecting revealed information, have hitherto been addressed. While it may sound somewhat disturbing to some parochial interests and localized opinions, it is really meant to express love and acceptance to all. When Jesus called the Pharisees and the Saducees hypocrites and whited sepulchres, it is not because he hated or despised them, it is because he loved them so much he was spoiling to have them change for the better even if it took harsh language. A book for everyone, it has no precise target readership because when information contained in a book is from revelation, who is it not for. It is instruction for the uninformed, elucidation and edification for the doubtful, and a mental stimulant for the tired intellectual who perhaps fell asleep. It will get you thinking, even talking, even responding, and that's not a bad thing. Many themes seem fused together in this book and that is because I am not writing on any of them, I am using them to illustrate and buttress the case I am making for the need for correct information.
