Ok, get buckled in, hold on to your hats.
Many, ye most won't want to hear this.
Have you ever heard someone say "this will hurt me, more than you"?
The Church has to be accountable to society for the shape it's in !
I fully expect there will be some that will say, take me off the devotion list. Or will just block the number.
Did any of the "shooters" ever read
"Thou shalt not kill"
One translation says: never shed innocent blood !
I doubt any of the shooters saw the "10 Commandments in school.
I have done some soul searching; I can't recall the last time I used Exodus 20, in any way! My bad!
Have you heard one of the mega church preachers preach on the 10 commandments?
Have we heard any of the TV preachers do a sermon on "thou shalt not commit adultery" !
I believe we (the church) have capitulated to Society's accusation that "Christians" are mean or judgmental.
We (The Church) have been quiet with the Gospel, thus letting society down "morally"
Father forgive me!
Empower me in the presence of Your Holy Spirit. My I be endowed with Your Love and emboldened in Your Word !
In the power of Jesus name . . . Amen
