"I'm Perfect."

"A CNN crew visits the Kingdom Hall of Prince the Sunday after he 'passed away'."

"We expect Brother Nelson to be resurrected here on Earth, just like the Bible says, when Jehovah cleanses this Earth of all it's evil,there'll be a resurrection and we will welcome him back.

And he'll be right [here] like flesh and blood, like you and me are talking here right now.

It's a deep, deep belief that we have."

"Anyone who accepts upon himself and carefully observes the Seven Commandments is of the Righteous of the Nations of the World and has a portion in the World to Come. 

This is as long as he accepts and performs them because (he truly believes that) it was the Holy One, Blessed Be He, Who commanded them in the Torah, and that it was through Moses our Teacher we were informed that the Sons of Noah had already been commanded to observe them. 

But if he observes them because he convinced himself, then he is not considered a Resident Convert and is not of the Righteous of the Nations of the World, but merely one of their wise."


"What makes Earth feel like Hell is our expectation that it should feel like Heaven."

- Princess Superstar, 
Perfect (Exceeder)

"We must accept the responsibility that God has put upon us, not only to be good husbands and fathers and builders of our community, but God is now calling upon the despised and the rejected to become the cornerstone and the builders of a new world.

And so, our brief subject today is taken from the American Constitution. 
In these words, Toward a more union. 

Toward a more perfect union.

Now, when you use the word more with perfect, that which is perfect is that which has been brought to completion. So, when you use more perfect, you're either saying that what you call perfect is perfect for that stage of its development but not yet complete. 

When Jefferson said, "toward a more perfect union," he was admitting that the union was not perfect, that it was not finished, that work had to be done. And so we are gathered here today not to bash somebody else.

We're not gathered here to say, all of the evils of this nation. But we are gathered here to collect ourselves for a responsibility that God is placing on our shoulders to move this nation toward a more perfect union. Now, when you look at the word toward, toward, it means in the direction of, in furtherance or partial fulfillment of, with the view to obtaining or having shortly before coming soon, eminent, going on in progress. Well, that's right. We're in progress toward a perfect union. Union means bringing elements or components into unity.

It is something formed by uniting two or more things. It is a number of persons, states, etcetera, which are joined or associated together for some common purpose. We're not here to tear down America. America is tearing itself down. We are here to rebuild the wasted cities. What we have in the word toward is motion. The honorable Elijah Muhammad taught us that motion is the first law of the universe. This motion which takes us from one point to another shows that we are evolving and we are a part of a universe that is ever evolving.

We are on an evolutionary course that will bring us to perfect or completion of the process toward a perfect union with God. In the word toward there is a law and that law is everything that is crated is in harmony with the law of evolution, change. Nothing is standing still.

It is either moving toward perfection or moving toward disintegration. Or under certain circumstances doing both things at the same time. The word for this evolutionary changing affecting stage after stage until we reach perfection. In Arabic it is called Rhab. And from the word Rhab you get the Rhaby, or teacher, one who nourishes a people from one stage and brings them to another stage. Well, if we are in motion and we are, motion toward perfection and we are, there can be no motion toward perfection without the Lord, who created the law of evolution.

And is the master of the changes. Our first motion then must be toward the God, who created the law of the evolution of our being. And if our motion toward him is right and proper, then our motion toward a perfect union with each other and government and with the peoples of the world will be perfected. So, let us start with a process leading to that perfect union must first be seen. Now, brothers and sisters, the day of atonement is established by God to help us achieve a closer tie with the source of wisdom, knowledge, understanding and power.

For it is only through a closer union or tie with him, who created us all, with him who has power over all things that we can draw power, knowledge, wisdom and understanding from him, that we maybe enable to change the realities of our life. A perfect union with God is the idea at the base of atonement. Now, atonement demands of us eight steps, in fact, atonement is the fifth step in an eight stage process.

Look at our division, not here, out there. 
We are a people, who have been fractured, divided and destroyed because of our division now must move toward a perfect union."

^ "To Whom Shall We Go but Jesus Christ?". Watchtower: 23. March 1, 1979. 

"the “faithful and discreet slave” has alerted all of God’s people to the sign of the times indicating the nearness of God’s Kingdom rule. 

In this regard, however, it must be observed that this “faithful and discreet slave” was never inspired, never perfect. 

Those writings by certain members of the “slave” class that came to form the Christian part of God’s Word were inspired and infallible [the bible], but that is not true of other writings since."

"God created the Best of all Possible Worlds"

- Gottlfreid Wilhelm Leibniz

Both the Watchtower Society and the Seventh Day Adventists teach that God created a perfect world - both Man and Angels, we created as perfect beings, endowed with Free Will.

Satan and all the demons of Hell were created originally as perfect spirit beings, angels in Heaven and Adam was created as a perfect Man of flesh and matter, in the image of God.

It was by exercise of Free Will that Satan rebelled against his own innate and endowed perfection, and corrupted himself, the world and Man by reducing them all from a State of Perfected Grace, placing a distance between them and full knowledge of and communion with God.

Witnesses refer to the essence of this corruption as "Worldliness" - "The World" of Matter is of Satan, and therefore not absolutely of God, and some examples of the corruption produced by "Worldly" concerns are the way aging is linked to the counting of birthdays, which produces both the expectation and reality of death and infirmity, they say :

Methuselah never bothered to mark his birthday, they say, so he never knew that to live to the age of 1350 was not normal - likewise, Noah and all of his sons lived for between 350-900 years because no-one had told them ever that they were not supposed to.

So, just as to eat of the Fruit of the Tree of Knowledge creates doubt, shame and anxiety over nakedness where none had existed before, a knowledge of the date and annual commemoration of the anniversary of one's birth creates an awareness, fear and anxiety over one's mortality and aging and likelihood of successful pregnancy and childbirth where previously none existed before.

Some people call me rude,
I wish we all were nude,
I wish there was no black or white,
I wish there were no rules.

To eat of the Tree of Knowledge is to experience doubt and uncertainty where before there was none - to become imperfect.

To live under threats that are the product of the only state other than perfect grace - Chaos and Disorder.

Seventh-day Adventists 

[and Jehovah's Witnesses] 


All humanity is now involved in a great controversy between Christ and Satan regarding the character of God, His law, and His sovereignty over the universe. This conflict originated in heaven when a created being, endowed with freedom of choice, in self-exaltation became Satan, God's adversary, and led into rebellion a portion of the angels. He introduced the spirit of rebellion into this world when he led Adam and Eve into sin. This human sin resulted in the distortion of the image of God in humanity, the disordering of the created world, and its eventual devastation at the time of the worldwide flood. Observed by the whole creation, this world became the arena of the universal conflict, out of which the God of love will ultimately be vindicated. To assist His people in this controversy, Christ sends the Holy Spirit and the loyal angels to guide, protect, and sustain them in the way of salvation.
