Never fear shadows. They simply mean there’s a light shining somewhere nearby. -Ruth Renkel
Cold and robotic hearts in the United States are crawling out of their freezers to perform their civic duty later this year. Among the slowly moulting 33% are the TV commentators who support the cruel criminal enterprise that potus45 heads up. The media figleaf that gave the gloating bigot in the White House a reality tv legitimacy is shrinking and what is left of it can be seen in the scarce Republican party members who can avoid conspiracy theories and false narratives.
By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” Jn 13:35
Some say that this identification is not enough. I suppose that in their book “love is NOT the greatest thing”.
Isn’t that like dumping the cross?
Doesnt that leave one wounded and bleeding, heading upcreek without a paddle?
Since “The whole of man is fearing God and doing what we are told” (Ecc. 12:13) the example that of doing God’s will that permeates the spiritual world is the Word of God becoming human so he could give his life as a ransom. One act of love by God illustrates his expectation and execution.
We who tell people to be obedient to the law or God or parents do we have a record of compliance? Isn’t there a whole lot of blasphemy, childish folly, and idolatry in our history? Isn’t there enough evidence to plug our trashy megaphones?
Nay-sayers and evildoersRomans 2:21-23
21. you, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that one shall not steal, do you steal? 22. You who say that one should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? 23. You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God?
When God’s love touches us on the inside we love people without distinction.
The secondhand feeding that has defined the last 150 years of Bible study is responsible for the deceptive clubs that pass as church in our times. You’d be surprised at how difficult it is to translate the Messianic message into English, and preachers who do not relate to the language of the Old and Testament writers are asking you to believe their hjacked comments on the apostolic message. The “beef” is missing from a lot of pulpits and books because instead of eating from the apostles’ hand we settle for secondhand carnivorous nonsense.
How can we reply and what do we learn if the question comes dressed up in extra-biblical language?
Not much because reliability is going to come from the Bible.
For this reason we must pay much closer attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away from it.Hebrews 2:1
The bunch has more than one dozen rotten apples, so please let us find a reliable way to talk about bigotry, racism, police brutality and a hypocritical department of justice.
- One sin sank Adam’s boat
- Zero tolerance to us-them ideologies is hard to find
- We have been christening the nazi and fascist playbook
