    In December 1970, a voice spoke to me about the

    future. In June 1976, a man suddenly appeared and showed me the future. Both times, others were there. Only I heard and saw them. Everything came true. There is a higher power communicating with us.

    God's law is the only law. God's law is love. Therefore if it is not of love, it is not of God. Apply this to your religious teachings. Are you worshiping God or the book?
