The book describes how cultural distinctions and socialization processes can influence how we see the world and ourselves. As we mature, we find out that what little coping skills and positive assumptions do little to anesthetize us against the complex and ever-changing negative influences of the world in which we exist. In every complex situation of our life, whether intentional or by accident, seen or unseen we are challenged to find new coping skill and new rules to survive and live by. This survival mode prompt millions to turn to religion and the supernatural to reinforce our sense of stability and self-acceptance. As I did, millions of people find resolve and stability in understanding that the Holy scriptures with its doctrines were inspired for our learning and usage as we journey through this decaying world. It is my intention, in this book to unravel and expose the unmerited favors of the creator, fitted for mental and spiritual stability.

Hi I am pastor Calvin J Belcher. I was born and raised on the great plains of Oklahoma, in a small town named Enid. I was raised in a loving home, with both parents and along with five siblings. After my High School graduation, I moved to Kansan and married my wife of 47 years who blessed me with three wonderful children who are now adults. In 1972 I joined the Armed forces and served in a support unit in the jungles of Thailand during the Vietnam Conflict. After returning from my tour of duty, I enrolled in school to study Architecture at Longview Community College, in Lee Summit Mo., where I received an AA degree. I have practiced Architecture for more than twenty years designing single and multi-family residence, churches, shopping centers, Banks and Hospital Restorations. It was rewarding to work in the talent that the Lord lent me. I later furthered my education and earned a BA in Business from the University of Phoenix in Ontario California and a Master’s Degree, in Community Development, from an Online program at Kansan State University. I thank God for my exposure to the field of planning, collaborating and designing which has allowed me to impact the lives of many in many areas. My religious upbringing was Pentecostal in which I have no regrets, for it has provided the foundational truths and inspiration needed to accomplish the will of Jesus Christ. I am the humble founder and pastor of Genesis Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational religious organization, based in Moreno Valley California, founded in 1993. In 2009, I was also led to develop a Community Based Organization (CBO) called ONEBODY, in which we annually wash the feet of hundreds of individuals, witnessing and teaching them why Jesus washed feet, afterwards placing a new pair of free sneakers on their feet. We have found that when you give someone a gift, you convey the message that they matter and that you care. I give thanks to God, for all the local leaders, congregations and community organizations who have played an integral role to make this outreach a blessing. Recently I was invited to go to Haiti where I willing became a mentor to more than a few young dedicated men of God. I stay connected to them through WhatsApp, praying and encouraging them to persevere while they endure the gross poverty and political turbulence in their country. I ask you to pray for Haiti. Pray with me that I keep my charge.
