In this week's REDMOND'S REVIEW, Darren shares his thoughts on CS Lewis's book, "Spirits in Bondage A Cycle of Lyrics."

Humility and Service

‘Humility’ is the book I review and it was written in 1895. It deals with just one subject, and oh, how that subject can be misinterpreted. It is twisted by those looking to manipulate you. Humility is called a weakness. It is just ignored.
This book was written by Andrew Murray and it is titled, Humility. Consciously, or otherwise, the personal relationship we have with Christ, as author Andrew Murray goes into great detail about, requires humility on our part. It enables us to be able to get close and focused in our relationship with God.
The word ‘humility’, has had many connotations and meanings throughout the ages. It is 180 degrees away from the word ‘pride’ which is often as well, used in many different forms, from many different meanings. From reading this work by Andrew Murray, I can simply define PRIDE to actually be fear, and HUMILITY to be confidence.

Pride and Fear

Pride  often times is fear masked as confidence. Humility is the complete opposite, it is a perfect trust that God loves us and wants the best for us. We cannot maximize ourselves, unless we know that we are here, but for the grace of God.
I am paraphrasing of course, we are reminded throughout this work, that it is only when we get quiet, non boastful, and non self-absorbed, that the real work of humility begins. Why boast and brag when you are  using nothing more than the talents that God has given you?
Humility is a quiet confidence because you are aware that you are loved by God. All that you have and that you will have, come from our creator. A understanding of that fills a person with a humble peace.
Remember, our savior chose to live a life of servitude, humble in nature and doing so with confidence, and no need for those around him to approve of his path in life.
For with humble kindness toward all and to our selves, the greatest of all, should be the one who serves the most.
This book is free to read in the public domain.

White House view.


Everyone would agree that 2020 has been a weird year in every aspect, from having more hurricanes than ever before, riots, to a worldwide pandemic and resulting economic shutdowns. With this in mind, no one should have expected a normal presidential election where the winner is projected on election night. In keeping on track with the 2020 Twilight Zone, we got the strange election outcome where no one has actually been officially declared the winner nearing a week out.

Something even more odd about this presidential election than most realize is it is an election in a year ending in 0, which in every case has ended in death or a period of great strife for every president that has been elected in years ending in zero.


The curse of 0 to almost all US presidents has been happening since Abraham Lincoln who was elected in 1860, presided over the Civil War, and was assassinated in 1865.

James A Garfield, elected president in 1880, assassinated some 6 months into his term.

Theodore Roosevelt was elected in 1900 as Vice President to William McKinley, was never assassinated, but took office as president after McKinley was assassinated in 1901.

John F Kennedy, elected in 1960, assassinated in 1963.

Ronald Reagan, elected in 1980, survived an assassination attempt in 1981.

George W Bush, elected in 2000, never assassinated but presided over one of the most devastating attacks on America since Pearl Harbor in 9-11.


If Joe Biden does assume office as the 46th president of the United States in 2021, the question is, can he survive the curse of 0 which has dogged every President before him in either assassination or times of war or great strife? The answer is he will most assuredly be faced with at least 1, or all of the unfortunate occurrences that come with the Curse of 0 that has brought death, disaster, or both to all presidents that have been elected in years ending in 0.

og: Biden
If Joe Biden can make it to the White House, he may survive the curse of 0.

Thus, President Trump may inadvertently be doing Joe Biden, and we, the American people a favor in a roundabout way in fighting to retain office.
