  1. “tolling of the iron bell, call the faithful to their knees, in a softly, spoken, magic spell”

    Forbes had an article on this guy – his career is that of a “spiritual leader” . remember, Jesus was nailed to the cross

  2. To serve humanity in the manner that He does, it is punishment to be in human form and live the life with physical limitations and also to allow the cycles to happen as ordained, yet be successful with many many positive achievements and to continue the Imamat to the end of time giving celestial guidance to those who seek it. ❤️
