Preparation’s for Christmas?

Black Friday to Christmas Eve!

The mad rush now for the Christmas season has began with American style hype over their sales? But this is more than the season of merriment, it is also the time for scammers to be at work online for those unsuspecting bargain hunters?

In this mad rush and as the days near what is now termed the holidays, it seems each year the world looses sight of what this season is really about? Cards, trees, Santa, snowmen, are all slowly replacing, the baby Jesus born of the virgin, the wise men, shepherds and the truth of God giving to us the free gift of His one and only Son Jesus!

Families! Two.

Sense of Belonging?

The world is a hard place, especially when families go all wrong and love is conditional?

Many people today claim that they were not loved by their parents and yet forty to fifty years ago, working conditions and time off for child care was both hard and not available?

Loneliness is another factor in our society, even for married couples when they get older?

What is the remedy to these situations, faith in God and knowing the Lord allows us un-limited access into the Church! But still many Christians to have the same problems as the world, but this should not be?

Genesis 22:8,    John 1:29,   Mark 15:41,   1 Timothy 3:5,   5:3,   Jude 1:12.

‘Out of Control? One.

Sexual Abuse!

This conclusion is not acceptable to the many victims and their families, because it shows to us that the Church has been left unchecked and probably deliberately for a long time by the many who thought they would remain untouchable?

How wrong they were and how sad it is to know that institutions set up to do good were nothing more than a hypocritical stance on justified murder of babies that could not be aborted by woman making that free choice themselves!

What is the answer to all of this, the courts of each land should be allowed to prosecute the clergy for crimes against the people! The Church will ultimately have to answer to God on Judgement day, as the same for all of humanity for their idles words and actions this being a very scary prospect for the people of faith!

Matthew 18:6,   Mark 9:42,   Luke 17:2,   Romans 10:8-11,   Revelation 18:21.

Families! One.

Natural and Spiritual?

There are two kinds of families, natural ones that we all come from or belong to and Spiritual ones that we have entered through repentance, confession and being Born-Again by the Holy-Spirit!

In the natural order we belong to parents, or we have been adopted and other cases orphans with many issues to carry through our lives? Families are full of rows and also strife, mixed in with the good times too?

But the Spiritual family is different, in that we belong to Ekklesia, the family of God that is universal! It should have no borders and we should all be helping each other? But the reality is far from this truth, believers are divided by false teachings and a lack of reading the Bible?

Acts 2:42-47,  1 Corinthians 3:4-7,   2 Peter 2:9.
