The Shepherd and His Flock

Would you make a deal with the devil if he promised to promote Christianity?

Would you make a deal with the devil if he promised to promote Christianity?

Would you make a deal with the devil if he promised to promote Christianity?  The answer’s obvious, right?  Wrong!  It seems to me there are two answers right now.  Most, hopefully, say “No way!”  Sadly though, I believe many are pretty much doing that right now.  It’s a sobering view of Christianity in the U.S. right now.  It’s very sad.  Scary even.

I dare say, anyone who even claims to be Christian says no to that question.  My concern though is that we don’t all examine what we’re doing through lens of the Bible.  What Jesus taught.  The examples He gave us both through His own life and through His words.  Not do we always pay attention to the letter written in the New Testament by Paul, James, Peter, Etc.  If we did, I think we’d be shocked.  Dismayed by what we’ve been doing.

when churches will open

Don’t be misled. Trump shouldn’t decide when churches will open.

Trump shouldn’t decide when churches open!  You may have seen the headline from CNBC, or something like it: Trump slams governors, demands they open houses of worship ‘right now’.  But you know what?  It’s not up to the governors to decide when churches open either.  I’ve often argued that separation of church and state – if done correctly – is a good thing.  The government should not dictate religion.  If we learned anything from history, it should have been that many people came to “the new world” – eventually much of it to become the U.S. – to avoid the royal version of religion back in Europe.  But we haven’t really learned much, have we?
