We should maintain that if an interpretation of any word in any religion leads to disharmony and does not positively further the welfare of the many, then such an interpretation is to be regarded as wrong; that is, against the will of God, or as the working of Satan or Mara.

Turning the World on Its Head
Inversion is also when an NFL star offensive lineman walks away from a multi-million dollar contract to become a farmer in North Carolina—because of his faith, which calls him to a life of service to those in need. Jason Brown is the man, and what he did was to buy a thousand acre farm near Louisburg, NC, learn farming, and begin to raise crops to give away to food pantries. His motivation is his Christian faith, which inspires him to value service over the prestige and the wealth that comes from being a top-level pro-football player. Read his story (here) and see a video clip of an interview with him (here). Inversion. A powerful biblical theme. Amen.
