Remembering the Fallen!

The old story of human Failures?

We have always had war and always will, when politicians start to mark the past they are the ones laying the foundation for a new crises? It is hypocritical for nations to claim they have, are and will provide liberty and freedom, when even their past not so long ago was one of trading in slavery and the benifits of that trade?

Peace and peacemaking is a blessing from God, Jesus asks all believers in Him to be that role of ending arguments and even conflicts! This not for any recognition but what we know and have in God will be our reward?

Matthew 5:9,  Psalm 120:6,  Acts 7:26,  Luke 6:35.

Revisionism. Part-Two.

Let us move away from the holocaust and look at the history of other nations and peoples. There are many who would today say that European slavery in west-Africa only occurred because there was a local demand for it. In some ways by saying this, one could justify Europe’s past sins. This in another way takes away the horrific way people were treated, separated from loved ones and children, degenerated and humiliated for profit.

There are equality as many British historians who have played down the Irish potato famine and hide the facts that the London democratic parliament passed legislation to forbid the kindness of Christians to have mercy by feeding the poor. This is the dangers of changing history. God requires of us to be honest and truthful in all that we do and say.

Job 6:25, Psalm 15:2-3,  Luke 8:15, John 8:38.
