Fifth Sunday After Pentecost… 6/19/2016

FAITH or FEAR??? (Please click)

O God our defender, storms rage about us and cause us to be afraid.  Rescue your people from despair, deliver your sons and daughters from fear, and preserve us all from unbelief; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.


This is a question that I heard on the River 97.3 (radio station in Central PA).  Yes, I like Classic Rock.  This question sparked a fire within me and feel that it is an awesome question to ask ourselves at this point in time in the United States of America.  The events of this past weekend in Orlando Florida has inspired me to pray for the victims and families of a horrible act done in the name of a radical religious figure.  While praying, I was drawn to a teaching of Jesus Christ.  I want to share this knowledge with you.  Here are the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ written in the Holy Gospels of John.

John 13:31-35

31 So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him. 32 If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately. 33 Little children, I shall be with you a little while longer. You will seek Me; and as I said to the Jews, ‘Where I am going, you cannot come,’ so now I say to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”


Jesus Christ sets an awesome example for us to follow.   Honestly, I cannot understand how a human being can take the life of another human being over a radical form of religion.  Who are these people to judge???  Do they think they are gods???  What my faith teaches is that we have one judge in the afterlife (PSALM 7:8)

Call me naive… However, this cowardly act should have no place in the United States of America… You might disagree with the way that an American Citizen lives their life; however, it does not give you the right to be their judge and executioner in a free society.

By the way, we do live in a free society… THAT IS THE LAW OF THE LAND… God Bless the US of A!!!
