Watching the Big Screen

Me? Christian. A Pacifist or liberal Christian? (Smile) It won’t be the first time I’ve endured a character attack. It is first of all “unthankful” for the supreme gift of “no greater love than a man lay down his life for his friends” trampling underfoot the blood spilt to secure liberty for everyone’s betterment. If this is your inclination to be somewhat pacifist, please note; It also remarks against God’s inspiration within His servant, the Apostle Paul’s proximity of dedication to his own “countrymen” and  For I could wish that I myself were accursed, separated from Christ for the sake of my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh,” (Romans 9:3) which should never be handled in vain. For we don’t build on that “wish”, but “for the sake”(v3).

But what about what surrounds them with all these cares in the news, the Lord did well care for the flock in saying: “[W]hen you will hear” (Mt. 24:6), and “when you see” (Mt.24:15) and when the report goes out saying: “’[H]ere is the Christ’, or ‘He is in the desert’, do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’” the Lord said, “do not believe them” (Mt 24:26).

So, when we are told the report, He said to respond just like this, not a word is mentioned about turning away any forthcoming notices. So receiving the report is as it is written, directed for and at His people. Therefore, hearing of such “sorrow” as it is written of the world isn’t the quenching of the Spirit, (though it can be compounded and eventually swallow up an individual), but rather how we respond.


 Furthermore, “we have passed from death unto life” (I Jn. 3:14) “For we have not received the spirit of this world (I Cor. 2:12), for it is God who will “deliver us from the present evil world” (Gal. 1:4). This is also an age in which those who do not have the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ nor His Spirit of comfort are engrossed with filling themselves with indignation for the faithful. My attempt when taking note of the news is to weed through any significant changes or shifts of the right or left without falling over the cliff of despair. It is a rather arduous task.

Pray for the Nation, Congress and for we ourselves that we “may have strength to escape all these things that are about to takes place” (Lk. 21:36) NASB.

While we’re at it, is it too much to ask that the dire portrait that some political Christians paint and (that we know is now all too possible a threat against liberty), that portrait against a floundering “Congress” to be castigated as one whole worthless body? For one such candidate for Congress dissented from my taking note of refusing to hold the entirety of Congress up in prayer. As far as I’m concerned, their works are dead and the zeal for which he makes great claims for uprooting, NOT changing that are also not worth any prayer is removed from God’s will that affects not only his purpose in running, but those who look up to him. (Name withheld).


But God it appears actually has a portion who are a remnant of pure intentions within Congress. Members protecting us from being physically cherry-picked off the entirety of blogosphere by whatever guise of so-called "security" they chose, will be monitoring all digital communications! I would think those same prayers these types claim to make should include those members, not lump them with the lot as all “insurgents”. Good grief, the need for prayer shouldn’t be endless on error.




God bless you!

Surprised someone didn’t run me into the shed a little over this. How about this one that would both support and denounce certain types of viewing of news all in one verse, such as fleshly indulgence and mutilations that carry great offence to the conscience of the young:

 “But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil.” (1 Thessalonians 5:21, 22)
