about false Christians growing alongside the true ones. It is only possible to detect and safely pull up the false thoughts and their resultant behaviour when they have come to maturity. You have to be careful with peoples' minds and hearts because we're such complicated fragile creatures. Never suppose that you can straighten out all wrong behaviour in one day. Some of it may be so deeply integrated with the personality that it may take years to disentangle. Of course, Christ can, and sometimes does, intervene spectacularly to straighten out a mixed up soul, but one shouldn't always expect that. Often He lets us go through the long, slow and painful way of discovering the processes that led to our mental and psychological corruption so that when we have understood we can go and minister to others with the same problem. There can be many different reasons.
"Maria had her childhood interrupted by divorce but she has also got a set of powerful and complicated genes to wrestle with and understand," said Stan grinning. "So we have to wait until the right moment when she can see clearly what's going on inside her. She gets flashes of understanding - I think even you have noticed that - so we are coming to a point when she may be able to break out and be completely free. And the best way to do that is by loving the true plant so that it outgrows the other. Love is the magical ingredient, Karl. Remember the motto I gave you? "Amor vincit omnia". We must love people to health by zooming in and building up all the good that is in them. Do you agree?"
Karl nodded vigorously. He would, as a rule, visit Stan on average once a week for counsel and report back on Maria's progress - or, at times, regress. By now Signild was becoming a valuable ally and the fact that they were both focussing on someone else instead of their own romance was actually, unbeknown to them, deepening their own relationship on the spiritual level in ways they could never have forseen.
Though at times Stan seemed complex because of the sheer breadth of his knowledge, his core doctrines were simplicity itself, and everything he taught led back to them. Were I to summarise them I would say that Stan's motto was: "Love with all your heart and forget yourself," with the qualification that to "love" was to first love Yahweh and then love your fellow man, as Yah'shua taught in His 'Bilogue'17. And how right he was. It was the rule of thumb in our family and we never knew a time when it had failed us.
