Papal Visit? Two.

Low Turnout!

Was it the weather or the failed visit to Northern-Ireland that thwarted this second visit by a Pope to Ireland?

Many people were very disappointed that he could not go to the North, after Ireland had to submit to the Queen of England coming to the Republic to please the other side?

Perhaps the truth was much more with the current trends in society and also his failure to seriously speak out on the abuse in the Church and what he was going to do about it!

Sadly the truth is that many Catholics today live with the world and so does this Pope, who has made some startling claims, which are contradictory to Biblical teaching such as the forgiveness of Judas and that he does not believe in Hell?

Matthew 10:28,   Romans 8:34,   Hebrews 10:12.

Being lifted Up. One.

Encouraged to Persevere?

One can not say that to have faith in the death and resurrection of Jesus will make us friends of the world? We may be called to serve in the world, but we must never think that Gods ways will be tolerated by the lost!

Everyday Christians are under strains from the daily pressures of life and this can be the same wither we are married, single of celibate. At times it can become unbearable, that we give in and compromise, but thank God we can repent and ask for Jesus forgiveness and get back on track once more!

As believers we have a Spiritual armoury, not of weapons that world uses to kill each other, but to counter all those arguments, questions, jeering and rejection that the world throws at us in their attempt to undermine the power of God!

2 Corinthians 10:4-7,   Job 5:11,   Psalm 138:6,   Romans 12:2,   Philippians 2:1.

Spreading Out. Part-Two.

We have work to Do.

Our Testimony may not seem much to us, but to a lost world and the societies around us it is a God send. All kinds of people today around us are living in despair and darkness and many want answers to what ‘is life all about?

Jesus is the only answer and we who believe in Him should know this and want to share it with the outsiders. Witnessing ones faith is easy, we can talk about what God does for us every day in the simplest of things.

John 4:23,  Acts 26:18,  Colossians 1:6.
