Just one of the reasons I love Nicodemus.
“It truly a shame that in the wake of the most recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, that the left is calling it an issue of gun control, rather than calling it what it is. What happened in San Bernardino is a terrorist attack perpetrated by radical Islamist.”
“I am also appalled by the left saying that the various calls for prayer by people of faith isn’t enough. All of those who said that prayer isn’t enough, I have one question for you, how much time have you spent in prayer asking for God to soften the hearts of the Islamic terrorist? How much time have you spent on your knees asking God to bring this to an end? You can’t complain that prayer isn’t working if you are not actually praying yourself”
“The Bible is clear that in Deuteronomy chapter 32, one person praying can put a thousand dark angels to flight; two people praying fervent prayers can put ten thousand to flight, so imagine the power of all the people of God praying to God for peace and for the welfare of this nation.”
“If you haven’t tried prayer, don’t knock it.”
St. Paul says, while we do happen to live on this earth, we really belong in heaven. By the way, CS Lewis says it another way, “You don’t have a soul. You are a soul. You have a body.” Regardless, we Christians look to heaven for Jesus to come again and take us with him. When Jesus comes back he will raise us up from the dead and change our mortal bodies into immortal bodies just like his.
Poor in Spirit is a odd term that gets misused by people with social or political agendas. The best way to understand the term, Poor in Spirit, isn’t as an indicator of quantity, but rather of awareness of dependency. Someone in poor health needs the help of doctors and caregivers. Someone truly poor in wealth, not only has little, but has so little that they could not survive without the resources and grace of a community… whether civil, familial or religious.
Vengeance may be fun to contemplate, but God doesn’t approve of it. Or rather, he doesn’t of approve of us indulging in it. The reason for this is that a desire for vengeance, or at least our human concept of it, actually serves to separate us from God. It runs entirely counter to everything God is and everything he stands for. Remember, God tells us that He is love.
