Re: How to Grow Mustard

Regarding your note Biblical reference to the mustard seed becoming a tree. You are repeating a common misconception. Jesus in that verse was warning His followers the danger of the church (the kingdom of the heavens) of transmuting into a large tree that lodges evil "birds" instead of remaining as a small herb. For example an herb such as mustard cannot transmute into an oak tree that would violate its genetic code. Mustard is meant for food for humanity. In the same way the church is meant only to be small in size and good for "food" and not a huge religious organization that oppresses people.

I encourage you to change your note to reflect that Jesus desired the church to be like an herb good for feeding people and not a large tree for showiness and oppression. :-)
