Speaking with Dr. Julius Mosley II: A writer who takes the time to think…
Hello Dr. Julius Mosley II, Welcome to ABOUT INSIDER! What inspired you to starting writing the first page?
It was my personal observation that people did not consider the importance of talking about spiritual issues. I have known for some time that we are all spirit beings created by a God who is SPIRIT, but people don”t seem to want to talk about it.
How closely do your experiences mirror those of your audience?
For years I lived as if there was tomorro. being young , one does not think about death ,but as I began a serious search of the scriptures I read ” think not what you are doing tomorro because tomorro is not promised to you”
Which passage is the most moving now you look back on the book?
when I realize from scripture that we were all born sinners and it was not what we do that make us sinners but rather who we are.I further discovered that God said that we will be judged after death!!!
What was the hardest aspect of reflecting on your journey?
The hardest aspect of reflecting on my journey was the realization that I could died before I found this truth about what God required of every hunan being if you desired to go to HEAVEN.
Do you read widely; and if so, which genres?
I read books by christian authors; dental and medical journals.
How many draft versions did you work through during writing?
I went through over four draft versions.
What’s something you would revisit if you could write it again?
I would write more extenively about Christ and scriptural proof that he is really God manisfested in human flesh. I would also write that he came the first time not to condemn the world but to save the world and that his death on the cross, he became a curse for all of mankind. BUT this message must be gotten out to everyone who has “EARS” to hear. …..For when he returns the second time he will JUDGE the world!!!!
Do you want to turn this into a series, or is it best to leave it be?
No I will not turn it into a series , but I do plan to write another book to help people understand that being a member of a church means nothing if you have never been ” BORN AGAIN”
Do you have a secret solution to writing block?
No ,I do not . The message in this book was placed on my heart/mind by the Holy Spirit. I would be awaken 3-4am inthe mornings as things weighted heavy on my mind to write it down.
What inspired you to select such a vivid title?
There were several titles I had comtemplated,but as I talked more to people who were members of churches and people who were not members and even athetists and a few pastors and a few of my jewish friends ; I really got concerned that many of them were LIVING LIFE WITH BLINDERS ON !!!!!!
