Religious Freedom. Part-One.

Christianity and Other?

There is a world history of Christianity clashing with other religions, because of our freedoms and their enforced legalism and idolatry? Many lands in Africa clash with Islam, but also with the many primitive religions and beliefs too some of which are nothing more than folklore?

Believers can get killed for their faith, for their failure to respect a certain prophet or a certain custom! Others do not like to see freedom from ritualism, from personality worship and from community control?

Isaiah 58:16,   Matthew 6:14,   John 8:32-33,   36,   Acts 13:46,   14:3,   22:28.

Called Too? One.

Suffer for Jesus!

When we become believers we enter into a New life and relationship with God, through the good works of His one and only son! But we should know that we will be persecuted now for our faith, because Satan wants to take the peace and joy that we have in God away from us!

Persecution is not always a bad thing, the early Church in Jerusalem were scattered and by this the Gospel was spread further out into what we now term the Middle-East? Today Christians are suffering in many nations, where they are not recognised!

For many believers have to remain in a secretive state, from  Buddhist, Hindu and Islamic world to Communist nations such as China and North-Korea. There are as equal Christian religious movements too?

Another Year?

Another Marching Season!

It never stops and nothing is resolved from year to year in Northern-Ireland? The billions will be poured in and it will relieve for a time, but when it runs out more demands will be met?

The initial problem has not been resolved by the government, but made worse by the bung or the bribe to play to suite a defunct and broken coalition? Which as being warned will end in tears, one hopes the tears of true repentance and not the continued hypocrisy of religiosity?

Proverbs 15:27,  29:4,  Isaiah 33:15,  Ezekiel 22:12,   Exodus 23:7-8, Ephesians 5:11-13,  Titus 2:11-12.

Manchester. U.K. 22/5/2017.

Wickedness!

This is a work of wickedness, when a young deluded man blew himself up killing twenty-two woman and children in a concert hall! The pain and suffering has come again to this city of Manchester, and many people will not easily seek any forgiveness of his actions?

We also must stand back as believers and reflect on the history of the police in this city, who have in the past fabricated evidence on the Irish community in relation to the IRA, the Hillsborough disaster and now be warned that some Muslims may be set up to get political results?

Today over twenty-four Christians have been murdered  near Cairo in Egypt, and so is revealed that these cowards on kill people in soft targets? Forgiveness is a command of the Lord, since He forgave us who too do not deserve anything from Him!

Exodus 23:1,  Deuteronomy 21:8,  Psalm 37:6,  86:5,   Proverbs 31:9,   Isaiah 1:17,   Luke 23:34,   1 Peter 3:16.

Reconciliation. One.

Forgive and Forget.

Bitterness is a terrible condition to be in, when one is claiming to have a faith in God? Like racism and sectarianism, they block the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives! Jesus was rejected first by His own people, but He has not given up on humans with all our flaws?

Jesus went to the cross/stake/tree for our sins, making that final atonement and rising from the dead so that we may have a New Life and overcome the sting of natural death!

Calvinism in some respects justifies sins, while in others it gives a belief that once saved will get us into heaven? But the bible is more complex and we need to understand it from the context that it was written in?

Luke 23:34,   Romans 5:10,   Matthew 5:23-26,   Colossians 1:20-22,   Hebrews 2:17.

Halloween. One.

A night for the Devil?

Based on north-European paganism, Halloween/All Hallows has become a time in the Christian calendar to remember that we believers have a daily adversary  who is out to get us at every cost, to take from us our assurance of trust in Jesus.

Satan, the Devil and His demonic host are as real, we see their handy work in the world everyday, terrorism, corruption, starvation, child abuse, intimidation, violence, gangs, criminal activity, murder, drugs and alcohol abuse?

But with Jesus we have the authority to rebuke the enemies attacks on us and he will flee, if we refuse to give into temptations!

Genesis 3:1-5,   Job 1:7-8,   Matthew 4:1-11,   2 Corinthians 11:14,   James 4:7.

Refugees. One.

From Africa.

It is sad to say it, but the real victums of the many disasters on this continent are the poor people who have been left behind? The boat people off the coast of Libya are the rich, who can afford to get out, but they face much exploitation by those who traffick people.

Many countries in Europe today do not want these migrant refugees, because they know they are a drain on their resources and yet many are professionsal who will fill those undesirabable jobs?

Many Europeans had to leave between 1800 up to the present to go to both the United States of America and Canada, in effect invading another peoples land and exploiting them? But today too many excuses are to be found in refusing people from this, that and the other.

Numbers 11:5,  Deuteronomy 7:18,  Matthew 16:9,  Mark 8:18,  Hebrews 13:3,  Revelation 2:5.
