  1. The bad thoughts are from telepathic thoughts of mortality, coveting and accusations are used to start thoughts of accusations, entire professions covet and accuse all day long. Following the laws of other Gods cause telepathic accusations, and coveting also known as desiring to possess, money worship is one desire. Thoughts of mortality are the problem, and denial of telepathy. The bad feelings are not from the animals, because God made them all very good, and man has dominion over them. Mans fear falls on the animal. The bad thoughts are from death. Please stop concentrating on the snakes, and tell people they are eternal. We do not actually need medication to heal, God never made pain or sickness, God does not make pain or sickness.

  2. I don’t think that tweets add anything to RNS. They aren’t news, and not entertainment. If anyone has something to communicate, s/he can do so in the comments section. Then, if deemed interesting, others can respond.
