Peace Processes. Part-Two.

All Hallows/Halloween.

Many today in N-Ireland have found common ground in the strained, but ongoing peace process. One festival that has been seen as a good place to share in is Halloween, this pagan festival can be shared by both Christian traditions. But their differences do remain for the rest of the year, because established traditions that their fear is stopping them from letting go.

This month has seen a rise of knife terrorism in Israel between the Palestinains and israelis, many innocent people have died on bothsides. Meanwhile the P.A. leadership have tried to justify themselves as the victums, this is nothing new under the sun we see it very much in relation to the Welsh towards the English who are seen as always persecuting them.

All of these cases are really related to human sin and how Adam made a list of excuses to God about it was eves fault he ate that apple. But why did he fall into the same trap as her, because he knew as much as she did?

Genesis 3:1-4,  Luke 14:28,  Romans 3:19.

Wickedness. Part-Two.

Avoiding the Light.

Many people today believe that they can avoid God, by not believing in Him or just ignoring Him! One day at the end of the ages, the bible tells us that we will all meet Him.

We may choose in this life a way to live, to either be good or bad?

But what ever way we choose now will determin our destiny to Eternal Damanation or Salvation.

Leviticus 19:31,  Psalm 94:8-11,  Hosea 7:2-3,   John 3:18-21.  8:12,  Romans 6:23,  Ephesians 2:1-4,  Revelation 14:13.

Wickedness. Part-One,

Keeping Safe.

The world around us is full of wickedness, everyone tells lies like truth, even our own hearts want to sin it crouches waiting for the moment to enter our hearts and minds.

But we must resist it, refuse the temptations and say no to revenge and retaliation. Instead we must seek what is right and fare and always try to do our best to be good and avoid conflict.

Psalm 51:10,  73:12-18, Matthew 5:8,  Titus 3:5,  James 4:8.

Understanding God. Part-One.

More than a Creed.

Religious conversion demands a creed or confirmation to be made and this opens the door to limited understanding of who God is? It is only when we have suffered and been brought to the point of provocation by our enemies.

God does not want us to fall into sin, but He knows we will at some point. he inturn would want us to seek Him and repent quickly.

Psalm 73:12-18, 107:8-31, Proverbs 25:3,  Romans 11:33.

Wealth. Part-One.

Responsibility.

Many people today are rich and so are many Christians, but it is we who need to be responsible with how we use our wealth. Many Christians are into the prosperity gospel and with it believe they can bi-pass the poor and the weak around them.

Many people want to enjoy life and have it in this world, but they perhaps should read the bible in relation to the many accounts that Jesus told us about those kinds of people!

Job 22:6-9,  Luke 12:17-21,  16:19-31.
