“What if I should do what Saint Francis or Saint Dominic did?”
NOPE! NOW IS NOT THE TIME FOR ME TO BE SOME EARTH LOVING SAINT. I’M CONCERNED HOW EASILY “OUR CHURCH” AND LEADERSHIP SO EASILY FOLDED & GAVE AWAY OUR RIGHTS, ESTABLISHING A PRECEDENT FOR THE STATE TO INTERVENE IN MATTERS OF FAITH.
“If you disobey me, not living according to the law I placed before you and not listening to the words of my servants the prophets, whom I send you constantly though you do not obey them, I will treat this house like Shiloh, and make this the city to which all the nations of the earth shall refer when cursing another.”
I DON’T AGREE…I KNOW THE GOOD BOOK SAYS REND ONTO CAESAR, & I WILL WITH MY TAXES. BUT AS FOR ME I WILL NOT LIVE IN FEAR OR BLIND OBEDIENCE TO A SYSTEM THAT SEEMS MUCH MORE SLANTED & TAINTED THAN EVER BEFORE. I WILL NOT…
for your sake bear insult, and have shame cover my face.
I WORRY THAT OUR CHURCH, ONCE A BEACON OF GOD’S WORD & LOVE, SO EASILY SWAYED NOW THAT DURING THE END TIMES WILL JUST ROLL OVER, TELL US TO GO AHEAD & GET THAT TATTOO, TAKE THE VACCINE, ACCEPT THE CHIP, IT’S FOR THE GREATER GOOD. NOPE. CALL ME A PARANOID FOOL, BUT MY FAITH WILL SUSTAIN ME & IF THE WORLD WANTS TO GO TO HELL IN A HANDBASKET, SO BE IT. BUT I SURE AS HELL WON’T BLINDLY ACCEPT OR SWALLOW ANY OF IT. IF I LEAVE THIS WORLD FIGHTING & WEARING THE ARMOR OF GOD, I DO SO GLADLY.
And he did not work many mighty deeds there because of their lack of faith.
