You have to develop power within yourself, like stocking up on gunpowder. If a gun has no gunpowder, it can't be used to destroy anything. People who have to be servants are the ones who lack the power to be anyone else's boss. As for the people who have that power, all they have to do is point their fingers, and other... people will jump up and run. If we don't develop our own powers, we'll have to be servants — slaves to defilement — throughout time. ~
