leave a comment »

Be careful when your movement becomes That Tool the Corpo-Banker Government Globalist Elites use to enact a political agenda aimed at tearing down the very foundation of a society…When the smoke clears you will bear the brunt of the blame and those that used your movement turn on you to persecute and eliminate you as you have outlived your usefulness; Become expendable…

First Points:

  • Legislating morality rarely ever works
  • If you wish to marry your neighbors livestock you do so at your own peril
  • Government does not belong in the regulation of Marriage

We do not doubt the sincerity of individual Homosexuals seeking legally married status under State and Federal Law.

Government originally regulated marriage under the guise of what else, for our own protection.  In this instance, it was to protect society from inbreeding and decimation of the gene pool.  However, as with all Corpo-Banker Government Pogroms designed for the Benefit of Society, it was all about money and control, still is.

The Homosexual Community is being used by the Corpo-Banker Government Globalist Elites to tear down the foundation of Western Civilization, Christianity.  Just as Universal Healthcare [OBAMACARE] was promised to not attack religious freedoms it has done just the opposite instead becoming a full frontal assault on Christianity, Christian Businesses and the Christian Community as a whole.

Marriage for the Christian is a sacred sacrament.  The Corpo-Banker Government Globalist Elites know they cannot control the Global Population as long as Christianity operates intact or at the very least survives.  Currently we are experiencing a great purge of Christians on a global scale that the ignorant Amerikans remain blind to.

Once the Homosexual Community has gained Corpo-Banker Government Regulated Universal Marriage recognition, it will only be the matter of days if not hours before Christian Churches will be forced to perform marriages for Homosexuals against their religious beliefs, practices or be forcibly shutdown by the Corpo-Banker Government Globalist Elites.

Remember Christian Brothers, Sisters; We are to remember that while we are in The World we are not of The World.

[34] And Jesus said: Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. But they, dividing his garments, cast lots. [35] And the people stood beholding, and the rulers with them derided him, saying: He saved others; let him save himself, if he be Christ, the elect of God.

[36] And the soldiers also mocked him, coming to him, and offering him vinegar, [37] And saying: If thou be the king of the Jews, save thyself. [38] And there was also a superscription written over him in letters of Greek, and Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS. [39] And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. [40]But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?

[41] And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil. [42] And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. [43]And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise[44] And it was almost the sixth hour; and there was darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. [45] And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. – Luke 34-45

<br />

The Hour of Great Mercy…
In His revelations to St. Faustina, Our Lord asked for a special prayer and meditation on His Passion each afternoon at the three o’clock hour, the hour that recalls His death on the cross.

At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion (Diary, 1320).

As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — mercy triumphed over justice. (1572)

My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant. (1572)

Christian Church Persecution Paradox, A Nod to G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis Too

leave a comment »

“There is a huge and heroic sanity of which moderns can only collect fragments."- G.K. Chesterton’s Orthodoxy (In Chapter III, The Suicide of Thought)

“There is a huge and heroic sanity of which moderns can only collect fragments.”- G.K. Chesterton’s Orthodoxy (In Chapter III, The Suicide of Thought)

When Christ at a symbolic moment was establishing His great society, He chose for its corner-stone neither the brilliant Paul nor the mystic John, but a shuffler, a snob, a coward – in a word, a man. Peter. And upon this rock He has built His Church, and the gates of Hell have not prevailed against it. All the empires and the kingdoms have failed, because of this inherent and continual weakness, that they were founded by strong men and upon strong men. But this one thing, the historic Christian Church, was founded on a weak man, and for that reason it is indestructible. For no chain is stronger than its weakest link.-Lecture 8 Heretics By Dale Ahlquist

I must fully admit that at this point I am stuck in a place full of wonderment much as a young child is with his or her world yet to be learned.  That place is in the writings of G.K. Chesterton and his use, explanation of the Paradox.

Christian Church persecution as revealed to us throughout history is just such one of those paradoxes. During times of acceptance or just being merely temporarily tolerated by The State, it falls into a narcotic like slumber of apathy and complacency with a remnant few. However when persecution of the Christian Church occurs, Christians have everything taken away from them, their homes destroyed, beatings, prison, gulags and the killing of Christians is sanctioned, promoted by The State (current events 101); this is when the Christian Church once again becomes strong in its weakness with The State being powerless to stop it. The Paradox is that which they seek to destroy becomes stronger, destroys them.

This is the Revolutionary aspect of Christianity that The State has attempted to stamp out ever since Christ founded His Church.   Many of us grew up at a time when Christianity had been for the most part tolerated if not accepted, those days are gone The Global State views the Christian as one of its largest threats.

The education system in the United States is a sore disappointment for this very reason.  The State is organized and run by those that have passed through the U.S. Education system and still to this very day refers to the Christian Church and Christians as Revolutionaries.

The Christian Church, the Christian Creed has withstood external and internal attempts to destroy her yet remains.  Those that have persecuted and attempted to annihilate the Christian Church are gone.  New antagonists have risen to take their place with clever sounding modern, enlightened mesmerizing speech.  (Government, Think Tanks, Media, Education System, Globalist Elites)

When I was a U.S. Congressional Assistant, I experienced trouble understanding how it is accepted that the Christian Church is the Revolutionary when it has been a steadfast rock, carrier of civilization as a bridge out of darkness while The State in its many morphing forms and labels, attacking the Christian Church, The State with its many failures is not? Even as a former U.S. Paratrooper I found this calling good bad and bad good rather queer.

The answer to my searching for answers came from two places.  Chief among them being Holy Scripture, the Bible:

[12] For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. [Ephesians 6:12]

The others being G.K. Chesterton’s books:

  1.  Heretics,
  2. Orthodoxy,
  3. Eugenics and Other Evils: An Argument Against the Scientifically Organized State,
  4. The Napoleon of Notting Hill

It is at this point I must also admit that it was G.K. Chesterton, through the American Chesterton Society that introduced me to the economic model Distributism.

C.S. Lewis gave us fair warnings but we relegated them to the world of fantasy.  I was guilty of this for a long period.  When I was eight years old, my mother had given me The Chronicles of Narnia box set for my birthday, one of the greatest gifts I ever received!  It was not till many years later with the 2nd Infantry Division, 2-17th, Camp Pelham, Munsan, South Korea (a stones throw from Freedom Bridge) on a cold winters night on guard duty that the light bulb went off with the Christian parallels presented in the series.   We end this post with a quote that is a summary of my time with the U.S. Congress, in the belly of the beast.

300px-Thescrewtapeletters

 “I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of “Admin.” The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid “dens of crime” that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, carried, and minuted) in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails and smooth-shaven cheeks who do not need to raise their voices. Hence, naturally enough, my symbol for Hell is something like the bureaucracy of a police state or the office of a thoroughly nasty business concern.” – Excerpt from The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis

CHESTERTON CHRISTMAS I

 

A Christmas Carol by G.K. Chesterton [The American Chesterton Society]

A Christmas Carol

by G.K. Chesterton

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s lap,
His hair was like a light.
(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all aright.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s breast,
His hair was like a star.
(O stern and cunning are the kings,
But here the true hearts are.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s heart,
His hair was like a fire.
(O weary, weary is the world,
But here the world’s desire.)

The Christ-child stood at Mary’s knee,
His hair was like a crown.
And all the flowers looked up at Him,
And all the stars looked down.

THE COMPLETE THINKER

The American Chesterton Society (ACS), founded in 1996, works to promote interest in G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), one of the 20th century’s greatest writers. A convert to the Catholic Church, Chesterton wrote over a hundred books during his lifetime and published over five thousand essays in newspapers and magazines.

One of the most quoted writers in the English language, yet one of the least studied, G.K. Chesterton foresaw and wrote about the issues we struggle with today: social injustice, the culture of death, the decline of the arts, assaults on religion, and attacks on the family and on the dignity of the human person.

Interest in, and appreciation for, Chesterton’s work appears to be growing thanks in part to the sustained efforts of the ACS. Our organization’s efforts include:

Television. The Apostle of Common Sense, our television series on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). This popular program, now on its seventh season,  is designed to help viewers discover and rediscover G.K. Chesterton, to be challenged by his ideas, to see the completeness of his thought, and to be treated to the joy and depth of his faith.

Periodicals. Members of the American Chesterton Society receive a subscription to our award-winning publication, Gilbert Magazine. Each issue contains original writings by Chesterton covering any subject under (or above) the sun. In addition, our own contributors write on family life, the arts, politics, faith, current events, popular culture, literary and film criticism, and original short fiction.

Website and Online Store. Our popular website includes a wealth of information on G.K. Chesterton, including free access to many of Chesterton’s writings, a collection of his quotations, and nearly one hundred of Dale Ahlquist’s lectures on Chesterton’s books and essays. Our online store is the most complete collection of Chesterton-related material anywhere on the internet.

Publishing. Through our newest initiative, ACS Books, we are publishing our own titles, in both soft cover and e-book format. Our first two books, short detective stories, were released in 2011. In March of 2012, we published The Hound of Distributism, a volume of essays on Chesterton’s economic theory of Distributism, which is attracting considerable interest during the current period of socio-economic malaise.

Conferences and Pilgrimages. The ACS will hold its 32st annual conference at Assumption College in Worcester, Massachusetts in August of 2013. We’ll also host a pilgrimage to Rome, Italy in March of 2013. The trip will feature a full-day International Chesterton conference, organized in collaboration with the Italian Chesterton Society.

Local Societies. We now have nearly 60 local Chesterton Societies around the country, and we have assigned a dedicated volunteer liaison to support increasing society activity. We’ve also supported the efforts of Chesterton societies getting started in Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, France, Italy, Spain, and Russia.

Invited Lectures. Dale Ahlquist has given over 200 talks on Chesterton in the last four years and dozens of radio interviews. Recent invited talks include a lecture at the International Congress on G.K. Chesterton at the University of San Pablo in Madrid; the Men of Christ Conference in Milwaukee; and the Bringing America Back to Life symposium in Cleveland.

The “Amber” Collection.  Through our electronic database of Chesterton’s writings, the ACS  continues to build the most complete collection of Chesterton’s writings anywhere on earth. Over the past fifteen years, we have been painstakingly collecting Chesterton’s works and transferring them to an electronic database – a monumental task. In the past three years, Dale Ahlquist has discovered almost 300 uncollected Chesterton essays in microfilm newspaper collections in America and England. In some cases, these essays have not seen the light of day for over one hundred years. Our goal is to make this tool available to the public and to give readers around the world access to all of Chesterton’s writings for the first time ever.

Scholarly Work. Students and scholars continue to contact the ACS, as we represent a Chesterton resource far more extensive than any library. More and more graduate and post-graduate students are doing theses and dissertations on Chesterton. As a result, Chesterton’s writings are even beginning to sneak back into classrooms at scattered high schools and universities. In the past two years, three major new biographies have been published – two of them by Oxford University Press. This would have been unimaginable just a few years ago.

Education. In 2008, the ACS helped co-found Chesterton Academy, a new high school in Minneapolis, Minnesota. In just four years the school has grown from 10 students to almost 70 students, and we have received dozens of inquiries from groups around the country who seek our support to start similar schools. We are creating a model that we hope will help restore education: a classical, integrated curriculum at an affordable cost.

The American Chesterton Society relies on memberships, revenue from book sales, and donations to support our efforts to promote G.K. Chesterton. Please consider joining or making a donation today.

Membership in the American Chesterton Society is $42 a year. Your annual membership contribution entitles you 6 issues of Gilbert Magazine and a 20% discount on books purchased from the Society. We ask our members to help revive an interest in Chesterton, to spread his influence and ideas, to bring him to a new generation, and to give him as a gift. Please buy the books and merchandise not only for your own pleasure and benefit, but also for others. And donations are tax-deductible.

Please feel free to call or contact me at anytime. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Response From St. Thomas of Canterbury Church (Cornwall, NY) Re: Desecration of The Cross

leave a comment »

Judy Valentine, Director of the St. Thomas Religious Education Program It is abhorrent that YOU as THE DIRECTOR would not take responsibility for this and HIDE behind the Children, use them as Human Shields to protect your position!

Response to our Original Post:

My Dear Mr. Kelly,

Thank you for your observation as it affords me the opportunity to explain why and how these crosses appear where they do…

I, too, would be appalled and extremely upset if these children who drew the crosses were more than 6 years old and were capable of forming a malicious action involving our sacred symbols.  That could not be farther from the truth. I am happy to inform you that our little ones were excitedly illustrating a new and wonderful concept in the available medium on the most accessible surface.  These little ones had just learned of the significance of the Cross for all of us.  They wanted nothing more than to show others how special that symbol is to them and should be all Catholic Christians.  If you know primary grade children you realize that their drawings are done to highlight only the most special people, times and items in their lives.  Children of this age NEVER draw to ridicule or defame.  They simply do not have it in their nature.  It is adults who have become jaded who see the beauty of a child’s work as being the cause to criticize.  I am very sorry that you did not take from their “art”  the meaning behind work: their childish efforts to bring out of the darkness the Cross of Christ and let it be their source of pride and devotion.  These crosses were to be seen as drawing us all in toward the Church not pushing us away.  Developing respect for a symbol or sacramental begins with instilling love for that symbol of faith.  These littlest of learners were showing their love for Christ and their appreciation for Christ’s death on the Cross.

Please accept this explanation as my apology for any offense that you felt after seeing this response to their lesson on the love of Christ.

Sincerely,

Judy Valentine, Director of the St. Thomas Religious Education Program

To: Judy Valentine, Director of the St. Thomas of Canterbury  Religious Education Program:

Your response was the most inept, nonsensical attempt at explaining away your trampling of The Cross.

It is abhorrent that YOU as THE DIRECTOR would not take responsibility for this and HIDE behind the Children!

There is no apology to be made to me as it is THE CROSS that was desecrated, trampled underfoot!

Showing love for their faith does not nor should ever include the desecration of The Sacred Cross even if condoned by Judy Valentine Director of the St. Thomas Religious Education Program.

Again, Loss of Sense of Sacred. Killing The Catholic Church: New Age, Wavy-Gravy C.C.D. Doing The Job From The Inside!  Keep up the good work.

Our question for Catholics is this will you be one of the seven to trample The Cross or will you  stand with one of the Ninety-Three (93) Chinese Students that died for refusing to trample The Sacredness of The Cross?

If you are willing to stand for The Sacredness of The Cross let St. Thomas of Canterbury R.C. Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York hear from you:

Loss of Sense of Sacred… Killing The Catholic Church: New Age, Wavy-Gravy C.C.D. Doing The Job From The Inside

Loss of Sense of Sacred… Killing The Catholic Church: New Age, Wavy-Gravy C.C.D. Doing The Job From The Inside

“In former times, Christians were incited to renounce Christ; now they are taught to deny Christ.  Then they were forced, now they are taught; then violence was used, now it is deception; then one heard the shouts of the Enemy; now, when he prowls around, gentle and insinuating, it is difficult to recognize him.  Everyone knows how he tried to force Christians to deny Christ: he tried to attract them to himself so that they would renounce him; but they confessed Christ and were crowned by him.  Now they are taught to deny Christ by trickery, because he doesn’t want them to realize that he is drawing them away from Christ.”  (St. Augustine in his Commentaries on the Psalms, 39:1)

Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York –   Liberalism, secularism, indeed the New Age, Wavy-Gravy Catholic Christian Doctrine (CCD) have taken their toll on the Catholic Church in America.

As with the radicalized liberal indoctrination centers called public schools, the loss of the sense of Sacred has permeated throughout the church by the radicalized liberal indoctrination centers known as CCD.

Here is an account of The Sacredness of The Cross:

“During China’s Boxer Rebellion of 1900, insurgents captured a mission station, blocked all the gates but one, and in front of that one gate placed a cross flat on the ground. Then the word was passed to those inside that any who trampled the cross underfoot would be permitted their freedom and life, but that any refusing would be shot. Terribly frightened, the first seven students trampled the cross under their feet and were allowed to go free. But the eighth student, a young girl, refused to commit the sacrilegious act. Kneeling beside the cross in prayer for strength, she arose and moved carefully around the cross, and went out to face the firing squad. Strengthened by her example, every one of the remaining ninety-two students followed her to the firing squad. “ -Today in the Word, Feb. 89, p. 17

Here is a March 14, 2012 account of the loss of Sacredness of The Cross:

Sadly, our children have been taught to trample The Cross of Our Savior.

While attempting to enter St. Thomas of Canterbury R.C. in Cornwall-on-Hudson for Daily Mass we were greeted by The Cross of Our Lord chalked, by St. Thomas of Canterbury CCD Students,  all around the entrance to the church.  As you can see from this photograph below there were parishioners trampling The Cross of Our Lord under foot in order to be able to exit the church.

Sadly, our children have been taught to trample The Cross of Our Savior at St. Thomas of Canterbury R.C. in Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York

I have to add right here that there was not one soldier or revolutionary threatening to shoot anyone if they did not trample underfoot The Cross of Our Lord chalked, by St. Thomas of Canterbury CCD Students!  This was Church-CCD Sponsored Desecration, Sacrilege with active voluntary participation by the parishioners.

While Cardinal Dolan worries about the loss of religious liberty from Obama, Sebelius and the HHS mandate maybe if the church restored the teaching of the sense of sacredness of The Cross of Our Lord by not trampling it under foot the rest of our society could respect it as well.

Our question for Catholics is this will you be one of the seven to trample The Cross or will you  stand with one of the Ninety-Three (93) Chinese Students that died for refusing to trample The Sacredness of The Cross?

If you are willing to stand for The Sacredness of The Cross let St. Thomas of Canterbury R.C. Cornwall-on-Hudson, New York hear from you:

The Immaculate Birth Message 2011: “The Gates of Hell Are Locked From The Inside” From K2 Global Communications LLC

leave a comment »

The America We Internal-Eternal: “The Gates of Hell Are Locked From The Inside”

 

“For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will.” -Luke 2:11-14

This is most likely very familiar to you and yes it is a great message but only a partial message for after The Immaculate Birth (we do not like to use Christmas for what the world has done to it) is when we witness the impact His birth had on time and space like no other.

For this year’s message we are going to jump ahead to the Twelfth year of Jesus in Luke because of its relevance to our point in history. This is about America and its ‘walk’ with Jesus and our situation presently with a Tyrannical/Socialist Government.

“And his parents went every year to Jerusalem, at the solemn day of the pasch, And when he was twelve years old, they going up into Jerusalem, according to the custom of the feast, And having fulfilled the days, when they returned, the child Jesus remained in Jerusalem; and his parents knew it not. And thinking that he was in the company, they came a day’s journey, and sought him among their kinsfolks and acquaintance. And not finding him, they returned into Jerusalem, seeking him.

Has not America also been to The Feast with Jesus?

Have not we also busied ourselves with the cares of this world, obtaining things to impress our neighbors and friends?

So too did not at some point America realize Jesus was not with America and returned to seek Him?

And it came to pass, that, after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, hearing them, and asking them questions. And all that heard him were astonished at his wisdom and his answers.

After what must have seemed like an eternity of anguish for His parents [after three days] His parents found him.  Jesus was teaching in the Temple without concern…

Is America seeking Jesus with the same fervor, anguish His parents had?

And seeing him, they wondered. And his mother said to him: Son, why hast thou done so to us? behold thy father and I have sought thee sorrowing. And he said to them: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father’s business? And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them.

This is passage above is frightening.  If you put Jesus aside for the care of worldly matters America, remove Him from Public Life, Schools, and Business, make The Benevolent Government (socialism, communism, fascism) your god then We too America will hear His words: How is it that you sought me? did you not know, that I must be about my father’s business? And they understood not the word that he spoke unto them.

 And he went down with them, and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them. And his mother kept all these words in her heart.  And Jesus advanced in wisdom, and age, and grace with God and men” -Luke 2:41-52  

The good news here is that they sought Jesus but it took from that time till Jesus was thirty (30) to rebuild the relationship to “advance in wisdom, age and grace with God”.

The problem today  is this.

The America that knowingly left Jesus at His Father’s House has no intention of turning back to seek Him to rebuild the relationship so America may once again “advance in wisdom, age and grace with God”.

Make no mistake about it man has made himself a living hell on earth and it is going to get a whole lot worse.  The remarkable part is that Jesus makes it easy to return to Him yet in the arrogance of pride and stubbornness America will continue on its path of self-destruction.

Like C.S. Lewis said:

“I willingly believe that the damned are, in one sense, successful, rebels to the end; that the doors of hell are locked on the inside. The Problem of Pain –C.S. Lewis Chap. 8 para. 11, p 127

People seem to enjoy fornication… Did that get your attention?

I am sure it did.

At one time, perhaps about 20 years ago, a bishop, or other type of clergy or minister would never try to grab your attention with such a salacious sentence, but we all know that sex sells. We all know that it is okay to “live in sin” and “live together” to give the relationship a test run. We are so bold about it that we don’t even try to hide what we are doing from family and friends. In fact, I hear that many parents get the kids started off with pots and pans. Parents think that either their children are just hugging or kissing, or they know what is occurring, but they just either do not say anything or for some reason, they approve. Then there are the pastors and church leaders who remain silent on the issue. Why? Because they might be guilty of the same offense, and they think to themselves, “I better keep silent, or they will find out about my past”.

Paul, an Apostle for Christ, was a murderer and enemy of the church. On his way to Damascus, he had a conversion experience, and this murderer, who attempted to destroy the church, became the great Apostle to the Gentiles and he helped to build the church. Thus, like Paul, the past is null and void. Our sins are forgiven because of the Cross and the Blood of Christ.

Now, let us get back to the discussion of sexual immorality: There is a price to pay for “living in sin” and partaking in fornication. The consequences lead to murder, infanticide and genocide. How does one commit murder via sexual immorality? The mindset leads to a culture of death. There are other grievous sins too: While, I am not going to use too much scripture in support of my argument, I will include the following from Romans:

“And since they did not seem fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things which should not be done. They were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, covetousness, malice. Full of envy, murder, strive, deceit, craftiness, they are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, rebellious towards parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. They know God’s decree, that those who practice such things deserve to die-yet they not only do them but even applaud other who practice them.” (Romans 1:28-32)

Sounds like America and the rest of the world to me! What about you?

Before I go any further, I encourage you to repent of your sins and become born again. You must not delay any longer and receive Christ. Our sins are so offensive to God that he had to send His only begotten Son, Christ Jesus to pay the penalty for our guilt. Jesus Christ died for humankind, not just 2000 years ago, but He died for us living now. He not only was crucified for our transgressions, his blood was spilled on our behalf. The sacrifice and death of Christ was not the end of the story either, for on the third day, He rose again. Jesus in His death and resurrection saved us all who are willing to receive Him. You have to have faith to be saved-You just can’t be a good person anymore, none of us are good enough. I beg you to receive Christ now.

In the next article, I will give you some details about what is going on today that should be disturbing all of us. For today, I am giving you milk. Next week comes the meat. In the meantime, please ask God to forgive you of your sins, repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand.

“Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ

For all the benefits Thou hast given me,

For all the pains and insults Thou hast borne for me.

O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,

May I know Thee more clearly,

Love Thee more dearly,”
