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.

Evil and Wickedness. Part-Three.

Bribery.

At the best of times this is not a good idea or place to be in and yet it is very much part of the ‘All Hallows/Halloween event. We traditionally know it as ‘Trick and Treat.’ You basically give us a gift or the mob will do something nasty to you.

Yes there is a kind of fun children’s game here, but there is also a serious lesson for us to learn that as adults it becomes an ever present reality.

Exodus 23:8,   Deuteronomy 27:25.

All Hallows. Part-Two.

There are many elements to Halloween and what was so fixed in the minds for many is today a very commercial issue, with some of the ‘innocent fun’ of childhood replaced by a real terror and intimidation. This 31st October should be a night to look out for people who are being attacked and help to stop or hinder those doing the deeds.

Another aspect is that simple game that children employ of Trick and Treating. In adulthood it is called bribery and it is not a good place to be, no matter which side you are on. Ecclesiastes 7:7,  Exodus 23:8,  Deuteronomy 27:25.
