“For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one, and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law
of commandments, contained in ordinances, that in Himself, He might make the two inot one new man, thus establishing peace.” (Ephesians 2:14,15)
I am glad as a Christian that I can have peace in a world that has gone absolutely crazy.
The only way I can have that peace is because I know Jesus Christ. I have an inward joy that no one or nothing can take away from me.
Yet as a child of God I feel compelled to speak up about some of the immoral things happening in our world.
We have politicians on both sides who care nothing about anything but making the other one look bad.
We have immorality that is rampant from homosexuality, to polygamy and we have many trying to make these things legal. We want to make a third category on driver’s licenses and birth certificates. Really? Is this common sense? Even in the animal world they understand that to multiply they need both sexes.
I hear often about we want to make a better world for our children to live in, but I have to say I don’t believe that is true. Do want them to have peace? Just look at all the ways mankind has tried to have peace, how have they worked? They haven’t.
Yet Jesus says He came to break down the wall, in His day between Jew and Gentile who actually despised each other, but got over it through their faith in Him.
I know many want to blame religion for so many of the world’s problems, may be “religion” is part of the problem, but Jesus Christ is not!!! He is the answer.
The Bible talks about love – how much of that do you see between different political parties. What does it say when politicians encourage companies and restaurants to deny service to the other side. Reminds me of segregation, it did no good then and will do no good now. I am 65 years old and have never seen a more divisive time in my life, but let’s leave a better world for our children?
As always look forward to your input.
In His Service, Larry
