Terrorism. Part-Two.

‘Dark Forces.

People who are angry and not heard as we saw recently in Norway are right across Europe and the world. As Christians in politics we do so need to encourage everyone with their grievences to be heard and not ignored.

Sometimes what we will hear we disgust us, but hear it will help to heal any wounds that left festering as we should know will lead to a conflict. Jesus was not political, but when shown a coin, said ‘Give to Ceaser what is his and then give to God.

We need to learn to respect those in authority both in the government and in the ekklesia.

Mark 12:14-17,  Romans 13:1-7,  Titus 3:1, 1 Peter 2:13-17.

Deliver us from Evil.

These words we know from the Lords prayer are very potent. Matthew 6:13 and Luke 11:4. We do live in a world full of evil, starvation, famine, wars, man made and natural such as earthquakes.

The Bible tells us that we must remove evil from around us an also not allow ourselves to fall into the temptation of it. Habakkuk 2:9, Judges 20:8. Purge is used, and so how to apply it today, to purge out all those from our community, the drug dealers, the criminal, the immoral, even the tax-dodger.

But we must also purge out on a personal level to the selfish heart, the greed and our many other failings to get right before Jesus. Galatians 1:4.
